How to Force Quit Apps on iPhone X with New Gestures

Without a Home button on your iPhone X, you must have some new gestures to learn.

Typically, you need to take multiple steps to force quit a running app on your iPhone X: (1) swipe up from the button edge of the screen, (2) pause in the middle to bring up app switcher interface, (3) swipe to find the app you want to force quit, then (4) tap and hold its card, and (5) tap the minus sign that appears to actually kill the app.

To evoke the app switcher, you can also swipe right from the bottom left corner of the screen at a slight upward angle. When the app switcher appears, just hold the app card and drag it upwards in one continuous motion, the app will be force quit immediately.

Is there a faster way to force quit multiple apps on iPhone X? Do you have to swipe upward those app card one by one? Well, you can try this: after entering into the app switcher, tap and hold one app car until the minus sign appears in all app cards, then hold up to two or three fingers on adjacent cards and swipe up them simultaneously.

In this way you can force quit up to three apps at once. This gesture works in both portrait and landscape mode, and it makes multitasking more smooth on the iPhone X. Once you get familiar with all new gestures, things become faster than ever before.

Note that it is not really necessary to force quit an app unless it is frozen or drain your battery excessively. Force quitting an app and re-opening it will require your device to reload it, while the apps idle in the background are moved into a sort of sleeping state, so you can quickly access to it with less resource and battery consumed.

Kaspersky CEO Says He Never Worked with Russian Intelligence Agencies

Eugene Kaspersky, the founder of anti-virus software company Kaspersky Lab Company, said he was never working with Russian intelligence agencies on Tuesday, he would quit Russia if its intelligence agencies ever asked his company to spy for it.

The Kaspersky Lab products have been banned in the United State due to the Russia intelligence agencies incident, and Kaspersky is famous because of their anti-virus software in PC. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has banned government agencies from using Kaspersky Lab software, after concluding that the company’s anti-virus software had been used to copy sensitive files with American secrets.

 larger-15-KasperkyLabs-CEO-EugeneKaspersky1

The company and Eugene Kaspersky have strongly denied they ever cooperated with Russian intelligence, but, they have said their software inadvertently copied files containing U.S. data.

“Never, never,” the founder told reporters at a media briefing at the company’s offices in London, when asked if Russian intelligence agencies had ever asked him to help spy on the West. “They have never asked us to spy on people. Never.”

CEO Eugene Kaspersky said accusations his software had been used by Russian spies to steal American secrets had caused the company’s revenue to decline in North America, but said it was still growing in other parts of the world. Kaspersky said his company’s revenues would top $700 million globally this year. But revenue in North America would be about 5 to 8 percent lower this fiscal year than last year as a result of the U.S. accusations, he said.

He expects Kaspersky European revenue to be flat year on year, while revenue in the rest of the world will continue to grow in double digits.

Kaspersky, who studied in a KGB institute in Moscow, once served as an engineer for Soviet military intelligence (GRU) before founding his computer security company in the years following the 1991 fall of the Soviet Union. He has repeatedly denied that he has done any favors for his former spy colleagues.

“If the Russian government comes to me and asks me to (do) anything wrong, or my employees, I will move the business out of Russia,” Kaspersky said in English. “We never helped the espionage agencies, the Russians, or any other nation.”

He said his products were aimed at “designed to stop attacks, to recognize malicious code, not to spy on our customers.”

No matter how, losing the super market in US is not meaning a good thing for Kaspersky, if you still have Kaspersky Labs products in computer, such as Kaspersky Safe Kids, Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac, and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018 for PC, and you are not feeling safe to use them again but searching the safer way to uninstall Kaspersky Labs products from computer, try these tutorials to fully remove Kaspersky antivirus on macOS, and most efficient method to thoroughly uninstall Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018 from PC with no leftovers left behind.

Kaspersky also said his company and him together would fight to protect its reputation: “We will fight.”

IGN Gives Apple iPhone x 8.5 Points: Powerful but not Affordable

In addition to games and movies, IGN often has its own attitude to hardware and electronics, and today they scored an 8.5 point for apple’s new flagship iPhone X.

WLT-Featured_iPhone-X-Sale-on-Black-Friday_uyq0pa

IGN (formerly Imagine Games Network) is an American video game and entertainment media company operated by IGN Entertainment Inc., a subsidiary of Ziff Davis and wholly owned by j2 Global.

They fully affirmed the iPhone X bring progress: the iPhone X change is rather large, remove the face recognition, fingerprint to switch to remove the Home button to full screen, but also keep all advantages of on the iPhone 8. But IGN believes that the exorbitant prices also make people feel that these changes are only made to make changes.

IGN also says, the radicular price of iPhone X is enough to buy a nice laptop on the market, in addition, the same processor in iPhone 8 is not afford to lose in iPhone X. It’s just that the OLED 2436×1125 that supports HDR10 is the most eye-catching on the whole design, and the size of the whole machine is well suited to one-handed operation, but the presence of notch is also makes users feel unfordable in using.

Moreover, both the screen and the glass backboard have caused the iPhone X can’t be fallen on the flood. Otherwise, the overall change will allow the new iPhone X to adapt to a period of time.

20171118141830_4729

The face ID is amazing and excellent by now, no matter you wear sunglasses, hat, or even the blurred face, iPhone X can catches the users face and unblock the device, though you may fail in the first time, it will never let you down in the second time. though the touch ID is quite quick, face ID is also never let you down in the speed and convenient level. iPhone X’s battery life is good, and wireless charging can be handy without having to mix it up, like AR camera in iPhone 8, facial perception brings a good use of Animoji in iPhone X.

Last but not least, IGN believes iPhone X is a stimulant to Apple’s iPhone products for years, while the powerful features usually mean fancy price, it’s better to be a luxury for those who can afford it, not a real necessity in normal life of everyone.

Apple Cancels iPhone 7 256G Edition: Force User to Buy iPhone 8 Instead?

 Apple Cancels iPhone 7 256G Edition: Force User to Buy iPhone 8 Instead?

We all know that Apple has launched iPhone 8 lineup, and the iPhone X is coming around the corner in next month. Usually for Apple, it will certainly adjust the sales of lineups in other products, for an example, Apple has already canceled the 256 GB edition of iPhone 7.

For Apple, once the new version of iPhone has come out, it’s natural to make adjustments to the old models, so it’s understandable that the iPhone 7 has been cut down. Apple had made change in iPhone 7 earlier than we thought, according to media reports from US, Apple had canceled the 256 GB edition of iPhone 7 before the release iPhone 8.

The suspend production of iPhone 7 256 GB weather means consumers can only buy the large-capacity edition iPhone from iPhone 8?

As the matter of fact, Apple had made the suspension of sale of 256GB iPhone 7 on September 12, which was exactly the date of Apple’s product unveilings. Its latest document shows that the halt sales aimed at allowing users to purchase the new product iPhone 8, which is limited to upgrade.

As for those who still would like to purchase large-capacity edition of iPhone 7, you can buy it from the some ways, but it will be less and less actually, so who can purchased a iPhone 7 for 256 GB is lucky enough.

As for the reason why Apple doing this, is perhaps has something to do with the sales volume of iPhone 8, a supply-chain source in Taiwan claims that Apple has reduced orders for both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus by around 50% for November and December from media. And the carrier companies such as Verizon, have also hinted that sales of the iPhone are not ideal.

Surface Music Kit Show up in eBay with Only $11.99

Do you have the memory about Surface Music Kit, the unreleased accessory from Microsoft’s now-abandoned family of blade concepts for its Surface devices, now has popped up on eBay recently.

And the popped up Surface Music Kit of Microsoft is only on sale for $11.99 dollars on eBay, and you can go and purchase it then.

Back during the launch of the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in 2013, Microsoft showed off what was to be the first in a line of accessories, called blades, for the Surface family. Called the Surface Music Kit, the blade would take the spot of the keyboard on a Surface device and give access to touch sliders and buttons to help with music creation and remixes.

This is such cool music device, but it is unknown why Microsoft abandoned it at that year. Microsoft, though, is always doing things unexpectedly, not long ago, the Forward Cut Surface Mini just appeared in the leak pictures.

The Surface Music Kit quires to work together with the independent Surface Music Kit APP, which automatically turn on when connected to the blade, and it can be configured in more detail in the software. From there, the app, combined with the 16 keys and sliders on the blade, let you do things like loop and mute tracks with a tap. The keys are also pressure sensitive, so you can do some pretty unique things from within the software.

Last but not the least you should have known, according to the official, the blade supports Surface Pro (original), Surface 2, and Surface Pro 2.

Same as in computer, it’s quite important to uninstall app/software/program to ensure it goes well to perform other apps.

Classical Method to Remove app on macOS

Today, we are going to talk about what you are going to do when you uninstall an app on macOS? In my case, I’d like to say I have tried third-party removal tool for help with my removal matters for a while, and I feel like it’s safe and quick for users, but I know there are many users still use the most common and classical method to remove things in Mac OS X: Trash and ~Library search.

osx uninstaller

Unlike Windows operating system, instead of using Control Panel to let you remove unwanted applications, users just use the easy Trash to delete some apps they don’t want in masOS.

To do so, open “Finder” << Go to the “Applications” folder << Select the target<<Drag it into Trash, or right click icon select “Move to Trash“

Or open Launchpad click and hold icon in a while until it starts to wiggle. Then click the “X” that appears on the left upper corner.

This is just a half of process to remove app on your Mac, you have the much more important thing to do to finish all removal.

To do so, you need to:

  • Open “Finder”
  • Go to Menu Bar, and select Go > Go to Folder…
  • Type “~/library/” in the box, hit Go
  • Search the files in the name of the target (take Kid Pix Deluxe 3D for example) in Application Support, Caches and ApplicationSupport
  • Once they showed right-click to delete all of them
  • You can also type the name of Kid Pix Deluxe 3D in the search box of ~/Library
  • Delete all the select targets then.
  • Finally, right-click Trash, choose Empty the Trash to confirm your whole removal.

uninstall applications

Be careful and cautious enough to delete those leftovers of the target, because once you have deleted it wrong, it would rather to infect other installed apps or cause damage in your Mac system. And some troubles will occur:

  • You can’t install XXX app successful;
  • Some related files found on your Mac;

I think most people came through with this: many leftovers of uninstalled app XXX found on hard drive in the later used of my computer, and I just can’t ignore these files always remained in it. this is the disadvantage of manual approach might bring to users, thus, I’m totally tired of this, until I search help though internet then I found Osx Uninstaller—the third-party removal tool I have mentioned above.

It’s Official: Dara Khosrowshahi Will be Uber’s New CEO

6eac7273497d1f60d7e555eebcc3b9b7

Dara Khosrowshahi will be Uber’s new CEO

The Uber officially announced late Tuesday evening that Dara Khosrowshahi, who’s the former Expedia CEO for the past 12 years, will be its new CEO.

The ride-hailing giant’s board of directors chose him to replace chief Travis Kalanick earlier this week. In a message to employees, Uber’s senior management confirmed the truth of Khosrowshahi’s appointment.

“The Board and the Executive Leadership Team are confident that Dara is the best person to lead Uber into the future building world-class products, transforming cities, and adding value to the lives of drivers and riders around the world while continuously improving our culture and making Uber the best place to work,” the team said in the message sent to employees that was also posted on its website.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal earlier Tuesday, Khosrowshahi said he was still in the process of finalizing his contract with Uber but planned to take the job.

Khosrowshahi himself said, “This has been one of the toughest decisions of my life,” Khosrowshahi wrote in a letter to Expedia staff that was obtained by Recode. “I’ve had the privilege to run Expedia for 12+ years now, and most of you who have been on this journey with me know it has not been easy going.”

He also added, “I have to tell you I am scared. I’ve been here at Expedia for so long that I’ve forgotten what life is like outside this place.”

After that, Arianna Huffington, who’s a member of the company’s board, congratulated Khosrowshahi on Twitter.

arianna huffington twitter

Now that his new CEO job is official, Khosrowshahi will greet Uber employees at an all-hands meeting at the company’s San Francisco headquarters on Wednesday.

You’ll see Uber’s full announcement letter to employees about Khosrowshahi’s hiring below:

Team,

We are delighted to announce that Uber’s Board has voted unanimously to appoint Dara Khosrowshahi to be our new CEO.

Dara came to America at nine years old when his family escaped Iran on the eve of the Iranian Revolution. He grew up in Tarrytown, N.Y., trained as an engineer at Brown, and spent many years at IAC serving as Chief Financial Officer and in various operational and strategic roles.

In 2005, he became CEO of Expedia, which he built into one of the world’s leading travel and technology companies, now operating in more than 60 countries. He has four children and not surprisingly loves to travel, one of his favorite trips being to the Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia where his wife Sydney said yes to marrying him.

We’re really fortunate to gain a leader with Dara’s experience, talent and vision. The Board and the Executive Leadership Team are confident that Dara is the best person to lead Uber into the future building world-class products, transforming cities, and adding value to the lives of drivers and riders around the world while continuously improving our culture and making Uber the best place to work.

Dara will be joining us tomorrow, August 30, for an All Hands. Add your questions for Dara here, and stay tuned for a calendar invite with more details. He’ll also be meeting with employees around the world in smaller groups over the next few weeks, and spending time with drivers.

Please join us in welcoming Dara on what promises to be an exciting ride!
