Что мы ждём от watchOS 6

0

Когда в 2015 году были представлены оригинальные Apple Watch, мало кто верил, что смарт-часам удастся так стремительно завоевать рынок. Компании удалось, фактически, невозможное – по своим продажам Apple Watch обходят даже именитые швейцарские часовые бренды. Прямо сейчас – это самые популярные и узнаваемые наручные часы в мире. Сохранить лидерство не так то и просто – именно поэтому компания должна закрепить свой успех, выпустив инновационную watchos 6, уверен журналист MacWorld Джейсон Кросс. Им был составлен список самых ожидаемых пользователями нововведений.

Заметка была опубликована в блоге MacWorld.

Новые сторонние циферблаты

По какой-то причине Apple до сих пор не предоставляет разработчикам инструменты для создания циферблатов. Пользователи приходится пользоваться исключительно встроенным набором. Это выглядит как минимум странно на фоне того, что часы – это, в первую очередь, индивидуальный аксессуар. Apple дает менять ремешки, но не позволяет настраивать собственные циферблаты. Остается только надеяться, что в watchOS 6 ситуация изменится – в лучшую сторону.

Siri

Уже ни для кого не секрет, что голосовой ассистент нуждается в глобальных улучшениях. И особенно – на Apple Watch. В первую очередь, из-за скорости работы. Даже на самой быстрой версии часов Apple Watch Series 4, голосовой помощник может задуматься даже над самыми простыми и элементарными вопросами.

Отслеживание сна

Практически все производители, выпускающие носимые устройства, добавили в свои гаджеты функцию отслеживания сна. Как показывают опросы, функция трекинга сна является одной из самых востребованных среди пользователей. Взять тот же «умный будильник». Данная опция которая позволит разбудить пользователя в фазе быстрого сна, что обеспечивает легкое пробуждение. Apple регулярно рассказывает о том, какую роль в жизни человека играет здоровый сон, однако поддержки самой очевидной опции по-прежнему нет.

Тренировки

В watchos 5 была проведена серьёзная работа – теперь смарт-часы автоматически распознают, когда пользователь занимается определённым спортом или тренировками. Но при этом Apple есть куда расти. Например, почему бы не внедрить интеллектуальный алгоритм, которые учитывает количество подходов и повторений. Личный тренер в часах – что может быть лучше?

Звуки и тактильный отклик

На своём iPhone вы можете тонко настроить мелодию оповещений или звонка. Увы, но подобная операция невозможна на Apple Watch. Пользователям приходится довольствоваться предустановленными звуками и тактильным откликом. Почему бы не добавить специальный пункт, который позволил бы настроить всё это лично под каждого пользователя? Этот вопрос пока остается без ответа.

А что хотели бы добавить в watchOS 6 вы? Своё мнение оставляйте здесь в комментариях или в нашем Telegram-чате.

Black Block in Hamburg (daily newspaper Junge Welt)

0

For the economy, it often seems easier to fill political posts with your own people in order to avoid the detour of lobbying. The CDU in Hamburg has no problem with this strategy. On Thursday, Marcus Weinberg, the leading candidate for the state election in February 2020, presented the entrepreneur Christina Block at a press conference as a supplement to his “competence team”. As the party said in a statement, Block is supposed to cover the field of “economy and growth” as an »independent expert«.

Block belongs to the Hanseatic Upperclass. Half a century ago, her father Eugen founded the steakhouse chain »Block House«, which today includes around 50 restaurants throughout Europe. The Block Group comprises 17 companies employing more than 2,400 people. Christina Block and her two brothers hold participations, and she is also the representative of the group's Hamburg Grand Elysée hotel …

VfB Stuttgart separates from coach Markus Weinzierl

0

DVfB Stuttgart have separated from Markus Weinzierl four games before the end of the season, replacing the coach for the second time this season. The Swabian football Bundesliga club responded on Saturday night to the blamable 0: 6 a few hours earlier at FC Augsburg and the precarious sporting situation in the relegation battle.

“We have repeatedly emphasized that it was our clear desire to bring the season with Markus Weinzierl and the coaching team to a successful conclusion,” said sports director Thomas Hitzlsperger on the website of the club. “After the extremely disappointing game in Augsburg we came to the conviction that we have to reevaluate the situation and a clear cut is absolutely necessary to create the league whereabouts.” The decision was not easy, “but ultimately that is VfB's success over everything and accordingly we had to act “.

For the time being, the former U-19 coach Nico Willig will look after the team. “Nico Willig has done a very good job in the youth field of VfB in recent years and has immediately agreed to help VfB in this difficult situation,” said Hitzlsperger. Willig is able to “quickly provide new impetus and create with the team the class whereabouts”. The new coach is supposed to lead the practice session of the pros on Sunday morning. In addition to Weinzierl the club also separated from Kotrainer Wolfgang Beller, the athletic trainer Thomas Barth and the individual trainer Halil Altintop.

Weinzierl had succeeded Tayfun Korkut after Matchday 7, but failed to provide a turnaround at VfB. Due to the highest defeat of the club's history in Augsburg, the Swabians have only arithmetic chances to avoid the relegation relegation. For weeks, the VfB presents itself in some terrifying condition. The 0: 6 in Augsburg was earned for Stuttgart after a game without adequate tackling, with several defensive Patzern and without consequence in the attack in the amount. “That was certainly a low point in the current situation,” said goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler. “There are no two opinions that we can not present ourselves in the Bundesliga. The team failed today. “

Four little-known features of Google Maps that will simplify your life | News from El Salvador

0

Google Maps, the map service of Alphabet (Google branch), has added a large number of features since its launch in 2005.

Also, it has become a key element in the April Fools celebration (the day of the innocents in the United States), because this year the company has enabled a version of the classic "snake" game in the application.

But it is not the only thing. In addition to games, Google Maps offers less well-known features like planning events or calculating routes. Here we tell you.

Create maps and routes

If you are on vacation, creating a map will be very useful because you can have more control over the distances between the places you plan to visit.

To create a map, open the "My Maps" section in the Google Maps application. There, you will find the option to create a new map in red, it will be saved automatically after it has been created and you can edit it whenever you want.

Save seats

Google Maps lets you search all kinds of places around the world, from entire countries to parks and alleys. If what you want is not to forget a site you've ever visited or to create a list of places to visit in your next holidays this feature will help you a lot.

To do this, open the application, search for a site, select a bookmark and then the name or address of the site. When finished, click Save, then select a list where the location will be stored.

To review saved positions, go to the top left application. There, select the menu and then "Your sites", then "Saved" and finally choose a list.

Saved sites can only be viewed by the user who chose them, so others can see them, the list must be shared.

Calculate distances

If you are a person who likes to use a bicycle to travel or run on the weekends, the Google Maps distance feature will let you know how far from one point to another.

To do this, right-click on the starting point and select "Measure distance". Then, click anywhere on the map to create the path to be measured. If you want to add another point, click on any part of the map again.

The distance can be calculated in miles (mi) and kilometers (km).

Plan the plans

If every time you and your friends arrive Saturday night you don't know where to go to eat or which club to choose to dance to, Google Maps now enables a function that allows you to select places and send them to your contacts through messaging services so you can vote for the best.

To do this, look for the options on the phone in the app and press the places you want to put in the runoff. These will be added in an emerging bubble that you can share with different messaging services.

On 18 April, the uprising against the government of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua marks the first anniversary. It took three months, costing at least 325 lives, driving thousands into exile, and putting hundreds into jail. At the beginning of April, the dialogue between the government and the opposition alliance “Civil Alliance for Justice and Democracy” (ACJD) was broken off without agreement. Why?

Personally, I do not think much of saying that the solution lies in this dialogue. He was interrupted now because the government lacks the will to implement the proposals of the alliance. It does not want to negotiate in the opposition-demanded way how the victims of repression should experience justice. And the second is a question of democracy: the government is not ready to favor the next presidential election. And no solution to the crisis in Nicaragua can even be guessed, as long as the couple …

Freiburg – Dortmund (15.30) – Passion of the warmmaker – Sport

0

Marcel Schmelzer is one of those Borussia who won titles with Dortmund years ago. Now the left-back probably has no more prospects. Which does not stop him from continuing to cheer on the sidelines.


By Ulrich Hartmann, Dortmund

For three months, Marcel Schmelzer is waiting for his anniversary game. Since January 26, the left-back of Borussia Dortmund has 249 Bundesliga games in his account. But the number 250 just does not want to follow. It is also not to be expected that he will be on the field at SC Freiburg on this Easter Sunday. Because Schmelzer, who plays for BVB since 2005 and since 2008 in the Bundesliga, has long lost the regular place he had for many years.

Five games this season still, and certainly the native Magdeburg will be used again at this time. Schmelzer deserves a game in a stately setting. Because despite his contract valid until 2021, this will probably be his farewell match.

The 31-year-old has no prospects in Dortmund, and if he should have read in the past weeks, who is all traded at BVB for the left-back position, then it must have cheered him in the ears: Nico Schulz (26 years, TSG Hoffenheim, € 20m market value), Philipp Max (25, FC Augsburg, 17m), Jérôme Roussillon (French, 26, VfL Wolfsburg, 15m), Filipe Luis (Brazilian, 33, Atletico Madrid, free transfer), Marc Cucurella (Spaniard, 20, Eibar, 10m), Alfonso Pedraza (Spaniard, 23, Villareal, 15m), Ricardo Rodriguez (Swiss, 26, AC Milan, 17m) and Rogério (Brazilian, 21, Sassuolo, 8th) million). According to reports, it comes down to the Hoffenheim international Schulz.

Recently he even saw yellow – in anger he had run into the field

One might suspect that Schmelzer is frustrated with this hopeless constellation, but at least during the recent games the opposite was the case. Most recently, in the happy 2-1 victory against Mainz, when Schmelzer had actually been sent to warm up behind the goal, he supported his goalkeeper Roman Bürki and his associates conspicuously rhetorically and decisively, and a lucky three-in-two victory the previous month in Berlin, he had even received a yellow card as a substitute, because he had run into the field indignant, as Hertha's Vedad Ibisevic had thrown the ball to BVB goalkeeper Bürki the head. “He always gives the best for the team and supports us with his words,” praises Bürki. The BVB managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke says: “Currently the situation is not easy for Marcel, of course he wants more working time and behaves very professional and loyal, he is an extremely well-deserved BVB professional, one of our master players, an incredibly good boy . “

Master Player – this award refers to the successful phase under coach Jürgen Klopp. In 2012 and 2012, Schmelzer became cup winner with the BVB Champion, in 2012 and 2017, and in 2013 they moved into the Champions League final, which then won Bayern Munich. This best phase of the recent Dortmund football history was also Schmelzer's best time as a footballer. He has completed 16 international matches in this phase, but the last one dates from March 2014, which means that he was no longer in the World Cup triumph in Brazil. In 2009 he has become European champion with the U21 national team, but came on in the final only shortly before the end.

Schmelzer has a great footballing career behind him, even bigger triumphs like the Champions League win or the world title but he narrowly failed. His passion and the recent phase as a reservist could not do anything to his passion. Marcel Schmelzer will give his all in his 250th Bundesliga match for Borussia Dortmund and possibly from next summer at another club. At the age of 31, he has not yet reached the end of his career.

Mönchengladbach (dpa) – The Champions League almost certainly, the Cup final as a big goal.

Three days before the semi-final duel with the Hamburger SV RB Leipzig celebrated with the 2-1 (1-0) win at Borussia Mönchengladbach the seventh away win in series in the Bundesliga and can barely gamble the participation in the European premier class , The hosts, however, remained in the sixth home game successively winless and now even have to worry about the participation in the Europa League.

In front of 51,757 spectators in the Borussia Park Marcel Halstenberg scored (17./Foulelfmeter/53.) Both hits for the undefeated since 14 official matches Saxony. Alassane Pléa scored for the hosts (61.).

RB coach Ralf Rangnick renounced in the starting lineup on the returnees Willi Orban and Yussuf Poulsen and sat on in the previous week against Wolfsburg 2: 0 successful Elf, who defended with a triple chain and acted from a compact midfield row. Poulsen was only in the second half in the game.

The Gladbacher, in which Tony Jantschke and Raffael raced for the injured Nico Elvedi and Lars Stindl, had almost a perfect start, but Raphael's 33rd-second strike resulted in an offside position.

Both teams looked for their chances from the beginning and were very offensive. The first big opportunity of the guests thwarted Borussia goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who was able to direct a shot from Emil Forsberg (8) just to the corner. A short time later, Pléa failed to Leipzig keeper Peter Gulacsi.

The opening goal fell due to a penalty which Halstenberg converted to 1: 0. The scorer had previously gone to the ground after a duel with Patrick Herrmann. Three minutes later Timo Werner missed from close range the 2: 0, summer could fend off.
