Newton email has released its first major update since the service was acquired by Justin Mitchell and Maitrik Kataria from the previous owner after a troubled Flightline. In an email to users, Maitrik says: ” We are super happy to announce the update for Newton mail across all platforms. This release is a huge milestone for us. Our work for the past quarter has helped us create a solid base for the future ahead. After building up the team from scratch, including our wonderful support team, we have slowly progressed towards gaining an understanding of millions of lines of Newton code and the complexities involved.”
Every now and again a new VPN technology bursts onto the scene that promises to change the way that existing technologies work. New kid on the block WireGuard is just such a technology and it is slowly finding its way into mainstream VPN services, slowly but surely. NordVPN has incorporated it as NordLynx and others including Surfshark and IVPN. So, just what is WireGuard.
Like a lot of computer and Internet-related environments, VPNs suffer from a tech-speak jargon. To the uninitiated, these can be confusing and the shutters come down and the brain turns off (like a kill switch!) but they are really very simple to understand.
Below we explain some of the more common terms.
A few weeks ago I published a post criticising Google Meet. I owe Google an apology and expose myself as a total moron for failing to work through the obvious steps to getting it to work. When I first started to play with Meet I could not get it to work at all on Chrome.
Five weeks on I started trying it in Firefox and it worked. Once I gave the browser permission to use the camera and microphone in my webcam, it worked perfectly. I tried the same in the new Microsoft Edge browser and it bombed. This is where I made the important discovery and realised I had failed to go through the first, basic steps if something isn’t working in a browser.
