HTC Announces Its Exodus ‘Blockchain Smartphone’ Will Mine Monero (XMR)

Image
Mobile phone giant HTC will allow users to exploit the Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency through their blockchain phone, Exodus, according to an announcement on April 10. The announcement states that thanks to a partnership with chip design firm ASIC Midas Labs, the Taiwanese company could leverage Monero through an application called DeMiner, which will be downloadable in the second quarter of 2020. Reduce mining costs Due to the growing concern that cryptocurrency mining activity involves high power consumption and, therefore, high prices, HTC guarantees that these levels can be reduced by transferring work to mobile devices. The app would be designed to shut down mining automatically, whether using a mobile phone or charger not connected. Phil Chen, HTC's decentralized CEO, added: “Mining on mobile is an essential research topic in understanding the development of secure cryptocurrency networks. The number of mobile phones in 2020 is approaching 3.5 Billion, which would furthe

Galaxy Fold 2 will reportedly launch with more affordable price, 5G Galaxy Z Flip plus rumored

Image
Priced at $ 1,980, the Samsung Galaxy Fold is not exactly cheap. For people who like the Galaxy Fold form factor but not the price, there is good news today. Samsung is reportedly working to make the next Galaxy Fold cheaper than the original model. A SamMobile report says the Galaxy Fold 2 will launch with 256GB of primary storage, not 512GB like the Galaxy Fold, and that the new model will have a lower starting price. It's unclear exactly what the Galaxy Fold 2's starting price might be. Galaxy Fold 2 will reportedly launch with more affordable price, 5G Galaxy Z Flip plus rumored Today's report also mentions that the Galaxy Fold 2 will be available with 512GB of storage if you don't mind paying extra for built-in storage. Rumors say the Fold 2 will also feature a larger 4.6-inch external screen on the Fold, a larger 7.7-inch internal screen and perforation, not a comma like the one on Fold d origin. The next Galaxy Fold will launch in the third quar

Oppo Find X2 Lite images including specs leak

Image
Oppo will soon follow the Find X2 and X2 Pro smartphones with the cheaper 5G equivalent, the Oppo Find X2 Lite. This is according to a leaked set of news reports and specifications that have surfaced online. It would come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 2.3 GHz processor, which uses a built-in Snapdragon X52 5G modem. It will also have 8GB of RAM - a decent amount for a mid-range mobile phone. Oppo Find X2 vs Find X2 Pro: What's the Difference? 128 GB of internal storage will be installed, and this should be a lot because the microSD card slot is missing.    A rear lens with a main 48-megapixel main sensor should be installed on the back. The rest will consist of an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, plus two 2-megapixel cameras for depth and macro. The front camera will be 32 megapixels. A 4.025 mAh battery will trigger the emission and will be able to be recharged thanks to a 30W charger quickly. As he says, Opp's own ColorOS 7.0 will be layered on Andro

Whence can I get tested for COVID-19 in the Bay Area? (3)

Q: What happens if I do not have a primary care doctor or if I am not insured? If you just lost your business, don't panic: you can still get insurance. As of Friday, the state announced that anyone uninsured and eligible for covered California can now subscribe by the end of June. But if you are in the mouth, the best place to start is to call a local health unit to get you in touch with local resources. For example, Santa Clara County 2-1-1 Service will help you get in touch with Santa Clara County Valley Medical Center, the area's public hospital system. If you are sick enough to go to the ambulance service providers are obliged to help. Still, again, health professionals are warning you to rely on emergencies just for testing purposes of avoiding congestion. Most California hospitals set up "tents" outside of the emergency room for patients with respiratory symptoms, according to Mills. There you will be evaluated and eventually tested, sent to commercial

Whence can I get tested for COVID-19 in the Bay Area? (2)

Q: I think I'm sick. What am I doing? First of all, you should contact your doctor and tell him what you are going through. Independent testing is not an option. Depending on COVID-19's policies, you may be asked to make a video or phone call and not leave home. From there, your doctor will decide if you qualify for the test and tell you where to go. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had very restrictive guidelines; now offers a "priority list" but relies on the clinician's judgment. The decision to test affects your age, your medical condition, the severity of your symptoms, and other factors. If you have mild symptoms of a cold and do not have a history of COVID-19 exposure, even if you are over 65 years of age, "we strongly recommend that you do not go to an emergency room or a healthcare facility.", a Los Altos geriatrician. Too many establishments are sending elderly patients to hospitals, he said. You may have a routine

The test is not yet available to many. Here's who qualified - and why. You feel feverish and tired. You have a cough. What now? In a perfect world, they would test themselves on COVID-19. It would be quick, easy, free, and available. We are not in this world - at least not yet. Of course, things are improving. But despite guarantees from Washington D.C., testing demand still exceeds our stock in the Gulf. So here's what you do. Call your doctor first. He'll probably tell you this: If you have mild cold symptoms, stay home, and isolate yourself. They are not a priority for rare tests. If you have moderate to severe symptoms or get worse, you can get tested - especially if you are over 65, have environmental health conditions, have been in contact with a known cause, or have recently traveled outside the United States. Coordinate your tests at your local polyclinic, emergency room, or driving location. "The main message is: if you are sick with the flu and can
