    Back in October, Microsoft has announced and later paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update over reports of missing files, and after resolving the issues, the company has finally resumed the update via media. The update will be rolled out in batches, meaning it will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.  In addition to extensive internal validation, the company has taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from the Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update and found no further evidence of data loss. The company says that the update will be available via the Windows Update. If it detects that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, the update will not be installed unless the issue is resolved. Microsoft is planning to add a Windows update status dashboard in the coming year to provide more information on any issues that lead to update blocks. The Windows 10, version 1809 is now available through Windows Server Update Services, Windows Update for Business and System Center Configuration Manager’s phased deployment.

    Waymo, which is a private subsidiary of Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc., is planning to launch the world’s first commercial driverless car service in the next two months, according to a report from WSJ. It will operate under a new brand and will compete with Uber and Lyft. Waymo is keeping the new name secret until the formal announcement. The company in an emailed statement said: “Waymo has been working on self-driving technology for nearly a decade, with safety at the core of everything we do.” A Waymo spokesperson declined to comment. While it may be a big milestone for self-driving cars, it won’t exactly be a “flip-the-switch” moment. The service of the Waymo won't appear in Play/AppStore anytime soon, instead, things will start small—perhaps dozens or hundreds of authorized riders in the suburbs around Phoenix, covering about 100 square miles. The first wave of customers will likely draw from Waymo’s Early Rider Program; a test group of 400 volunteer families who have been riding Waymos for more than a year. The customers who intend to move to the new service will be left alone from their non-disclosure agreements, meaning they’ll be free to talk about it, snap selfies, and bring friends or even ...

    WhatsApp in the recent day has been on a roll as it is pushing new features in regular intervals. New to join the list is the ability to share own contact info and to quickly add contacts. The feature, however, is not available yet, but the company is seriously working on the ability to bring Share Contact Info via QR. With this feature, users can quickly add contacts directly from within the application. Though something similar was available already, the company wants to make it easier by redesigning the functionality from the ground up on iOS and Android. The feature will replace the current option, so it will be located in the same menu. The UI is very simple and intuitive. You can choose the country where the user is located, so WhatsApp will automatically insert the country code, then you can insert the phone number. Once done, WhatsApp automatically shows if that user is on WhatsApp. If you look closely, it is something similar to Instagram's nametag feature and Snapcode on Snapchat. When the QR code is detected, WhatsApp will automatically fill all fields and the contact will be added in your address book. When you generate your QR code the first time, WhatsApp gives the possibility ...
