Apple Music expands annual subscription option beyond gift cards

People with an existing Apple Music subscription can now switch to a cheaper annual plan without having to buy a gift card —though the option is relatively hidden. Image Credit: TechCrunch To find it, subscribers must go into the iOS 10 App Store, scroll to the bottom of the Featured tab, and select their Apple ID, TechCrunch noted on Monday. This will prompt for a password, after which people can tap on "View Apple ID," then finally on the Subscriptions button to check their Apple Music membership. A one-year individual plan is $99 in the U.S., a significant discount off the nearly $120 it costs to go month-by-month. Unfortunately, there are no annual tiers for student or family accounts, and the option is invisible to people who aren't already using Apple Music. In fact, Apple has so far downplayed the annual option in marketing. The gift card first appeared in September, but is only highlighted in the company's online store . Offering a discounted plan may nevertheless help Apple compete with the market leader in on-demand streaming, Spotify. The latter is still selling 12-month gift cards for the same price it costs to go month-to-month.

How to Speed Up Firefox With Multi-Process, If It's Not Working By Default

After years of waiting, Mozilla last week launched Firefox 54 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android, with multi-process support — a "major improvement" to improve your browsing experience — but many users are still struggling to take advantage of this feature. Mozilla's multi-process support in Firefox has been in development for over eight years as part of a project, codenamed Electrolysis or E10S, which aimed at improving responsiveness and speed by streamlining memory use by different processes. Describing the latest release as the largest change to Firefox code ever, Mozilla says it has worked hard to avoid increased memory consumption, and slower performance, as Firefox now uses up to four processes to run web page content across all open tabs. In other words, Firefox is finally making use of "significantly less RAM" of your computer, as heavy web pages in one tab will now have a much lower impact on responsiveness and speed in other tabs. "This design makes it easier to utilize all of the cores available on modern processors and, in the future, to securely sandbox web content," says Mozilla.

Google's war on terror: 4 ways the search giant is fighting extremism online - TechRepublic

The first step in Google's plan is to boost its use of technology in identifying content that may contain terrorist acts or promote terrorist ideals. The issue here, the post said, is that certain content that mentions extremism may simply be a newscast informing viewers of a threat. Google is now using machine learning to analyze the content, and so far, 50% of the offending content that it has removed over the past six months has been identified through this method. Moving forward, the company will continue to train new models on figuring out what is, and what isn't, extremist content.

How to make sure your big data solution actually gets used - TechRepublic

To gain visibility and automate steps at every stage of the food pick, pack, ship and deliver process, food producers, shippers, warehouses and retailers use handheld devices, barcode scanners, hands-free, voice-based technology and even sensors placed on pallets, packages and refrigeration compartments in trucks. These sensors track temperature, humidity and tampering of the containers for perishables and other goods, and also issue auto alerts to supply chain managers as soon as one of these conditions is violated. Everyone in the food supply chain knows where every shipment is. Along the way, big data is collected in a central data repository where queries and reports are subsequently run to assess how well the supply chain is performing.

Pokémon Go’s big summer update adds cooperative raids and redesigned gyms

The idea behind raids is to get players back outside and working together. Because the battles are centered around gyms, you’ll need to be in the same areas as your teammates in order to take on a raid. And while the default raids are public, you can also create private battles limited to just you and friends. Niantic says one of the goals of raids is to allow all players — not just those who play every day and have a roster of strong pokémon — to be able to access higher-level content. It’s also a chance to capture strong monsters. Accessing raids will require a new item called a “raid pass.” Players will get one free pass per day, and can purchase additional ones as well.
