Study Shows That People Type Almost As Fast On Your Mobile As On The Keyboard

Research shows that teenagers usually write at an average speed of 40 ppm while 50-year-olds write about 26 ppm.

More than 37,000 volunteers from 160 countries have participated in a speed test and writing accuracy on their mobile phones that have revealed that the speed of typing on the mobile is reaching physical keyboards and is almost the same.

Those who type with both thumbs on their mobile phones have an average ability to write 38 words per minute (ppm), being only 25 percent slower than the average in people typing on physical keyboards.

The technique of writing with two thumbs is that used by 74% of people from their mobile phones, while those who write with one finger do so at an average of 29 ppm, as a study carried out by the University of Aalto, the University of Cambridge and ETH Zürich.

The research contrasts these data with those of writing with physical keyboards since although it is possible to reach up to one hundred words per minute, most people are able to type between 35 and 65 ppm with a keyboard.

In addition, research shows that adolescents generally write at an average speed of 40 ppm while 50-year-olds write approximately 26 ppm.

For their part, young people between 10 and 19 years write an average of ten words per minute faster than the generation of their parents, people 40 years old. The reason is that young people grow up with mobile phones and spend about six hours a day with these devices.

The research also concluded that the autocorrect helps increase speed while the word predictor slows down the writing. The study will be presented this Wednesday at the International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Devices and Mobile Devices held in Taipei, Taiwan.

Google Threatens to Stop Its Search Engine Service in Australia, Why

Google has just announced that it is threatening the Australian government to stop its search engine services or search engines.

This was done by Google because it did not agree with new laws that have been issued by the Australian government where Google must pay news publishers for content displayed on Google Search.

Apart from Google, other technology companies such as Facebook are also entering and must comply with the new regulations. Then Google was the first and said that it did not agree.

“If this rule becomes law, we will have no choice but to stop Google Search services in Australia,” said Vice President of Google Australia and New Zealand, Meg Silva quoted from The Verge.

It states that Google was forced to decide this because they had no other choice and they also didn’t want to spend a lot of money just to comply with regulations in one country.

“It will bring things that we cannot sustain for this business, the digital economy, and do not fit the way search engines work,” Google continued.

Actually, Google has announced a program to pay a number of news publishers in Australia, Germany, and Brazil, but the Australian government thinks that this is still not enough so they make this law.

WhatsApp is increasingly anxious to be left by the user, now advertises in newspapers

India, which is one of the largest WhatsApp user countries in the world, is busy deleting WhatsApp and switching to rival applications such as Signal and Telegram.

Indeed WhatsApp has finally postponed its new privacy policy, but it seems that this is not enough to stem user migration.

Most recently, WhatsApp has advertised in newspapers to convince its users that they care about user privacy.

WhatsApp spent a lot of money to advertise in 10 newspapers that speak English and Hindi.

“WhatsApp respects and protects your privacy. Respect for your privacy is embedded in our DNA” reads the WhatsApp ad.

WhatsApp has clarified that its data-sharing policy with Facebook does not affect the privacy of messages sent by users.

Encryption continues and WhatsApp until Facebook can’t read the messages sent. WhatsApp’s actions to advertise are actually quite reasonable.

Facebook has an estimated $5.7 billion investment in India so there is no way they will let it drift for nothing.

Such an investment is aimed at boosting digital transactions for MSMEs in India. WhatsApp has also received government permission to launch WhatsApp Pay.

Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

Working from home ( work from home, WFH) continued to require workers to do their jobs remotely. Included in sending important documents. Not infrequently, what is sent is a video or large file.

Of course, large project files such as 4K and 8K videos, CAD files, and other large data often become obstacles to sharing in the cloud.

In response to this, Microsoft will increase the file upload limit from 100GB to 250GB. These upload limits will apply to OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint.

In addition, this upload limit is also available to personal OneDrive users. Reportedly, this feature will be available at the end of January 2021.

Microsoft in a written statement said to continue to strive to support workers around the world. He said he accepted all feedback given by customers.

“We always try to innovate and empower our users to be more productive,” wrote Microsoft employee Ankita, Saturday (16/1/2021).

Previously, Microsoft had increased the upload limit from 15GB to 100GB in July 2020.

Microsoft Teams Will Compete with Browsers

Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said Microsoft Teams will be as important as internet browsers and operating systems. This means that Teams will be a service that is prioritized by their users.

This statement came after Nadella highlighted the growth of Teams over the last few years.

According to company data, there were a surge of inactive users from 13 million users in July 2019 to 115 million users in September 2020.
