SwiftKey Beta automatic Incognito mode is here to save you from awkward predictions

January 22nd, 2019

Picture this: you have national security level web browsing to do, and fire up Incognito mode. However, unless you also remember to toggle your keyboard over to Incognito, it’s still studying what you type to add words to its dictionary. If you can already see a potentially embarrassing situation brewing, worry no more, as the newest SwiftKey Beta picks up the ability to automatically switch itself to Incognito mode.

Auto-switching works in most major web browsers, with the exception of UC Browser 

While keyboards like Gboard have been auto-switching to Incognito mode for a while, it’s good to see the feature being tested on other popular keyboards too — SwiftKey has over 100M downloads, and SwiftKey Beta has over a million. It’s been three years since Microsoft acquired SwiftKey and, unlike Sunrise and Wunderlist, SwiftKey continues to be actively developed, even making its way to Windows 10.

Google’s been fined €50 million for violating GDPR rules

January 21st, 2019

This is the largest GDPR fine yet.

On January 21, 2019, France’s National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) announced that Google is being fined a total of €50 million for failing to comply with certain rules set in place by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that officially went into effect in May 2018.

As for why the fine was issued, CNIL says that Google doesn’t make it clear enough in regards to what data it collects from users and fails to give people enough control over how their data is used by Google.

Indeed, the general structure of the information chosen by the company does not enable to comply with the Regulation. Essential information, such as the data processing purposes, the data storage periods or the categories of personal data used for the ads personalization, are excessively disseminated across several documents, with buttons and links on which it is required to click to access complementary information.

Users are not able to fully underst…

Reading for long periods of time on an e-ink display results in less fatigue to the eyes, battery life is measured in weeks instead of hours, and you get a break from the barrage of notifications that distract you while reading on a phone. Amazon has virtually no competition in this market, but it still keeps making better Kindles every few years.
