Too Many Satellites - Why There Must Finally Be Traffic Rules For Space

When the automobile was invented more than a hundred years ago, only a few vehicles were initially on German roads. However, the more the invention spread, the higher the danger of collisions. The authorities responded by gradually enacting mandatory traffic rules. Also, the acquisition of a driving license became compulsory.

Today, this story could be repeated in space. For a long time, the cost of satellites was so high that their numbers in space remained limited. This changed in recent years but massive. Because on the one hand, more and more states set up their space programs. On the other hand, numerous private companies also appeared on the scene.

Communication By E-Mail Was Difficult

Most recently, there was a collision between a SpaceX Starlink satellite and a scientific satellite of the European Space Agency ESA. Although it was noticed in time that the two flying objects controlled each other. But because there are no fixed traffic rules in space, it was unclear who had to avoid it.

The ESA pointed out that the own satellite had already been on this orbit for some time and therefore should remain there. A corresponding e-mail to SpaceX did not have the desired effect. The Starlink satellite remained on its course. Ultimately, the ESA consequently had to become active and initiate an evasive maneuver. Ultimately, such a collision could be prevented. The anecdote shows: It is finally time for binding rules.

In The Future, There Will Be Less Space In Space

For in the coming years, the problem is likely to worsen. SpaceX has so far sent only 60 Starlink satellites into space. In the long term, however, the number is to be increased to around 12,000. Other companies have similar plans. In the long run, it should therefore not be practicable to vote each time by e-mail, who has to dodge now.

In general, the fewer actors in space are active, the easier it will be to agree on generally accepted rules. Since the number of private companies is likely to increase in the next few years, should be timely. Especially since evasive maneuvers are not uncommon today. In most cases, however, not other active satellites are avoided, but no longer controllable space junk.

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

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).

Optimize for Azure

Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

He added that each file is divided into several parts and each part is encrypted with a unique key, to keep the file safe.

All files will be backed up in Azure storage to make it easier for users to upload and download anywhere.

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.

Quoting UCToday , Thursday (13/1/2021), he added that Teams has turned into a communication tool as well as an organizing layer because it acts as a hub for other Microsoft services.

This is what makes Teams a platform that is expected to compete with internet browsers and operating systems.
