Non-profit Technology can help you do good

Due to time and budgetary constraints, many non-profit organisations tend to put technology way down on their priority lists. However, there is now a major case for why they should be bringing technology back up to the No. 1 position!

In order to assist in allowing the adoption of the latest technology to become an easier, and more affordable, activity for non-profit organisations of all sizes, Microsoft recently launched a brand-new programme for these called Technology for Social Impact, or TSI. It allows for predictable pricing along with standardised discounts, and further makes several Cloud and Hardware offers available for non-profits to take their pick from.

Think about it from the augmented reality versions of Star Wars characters that you can see on your Google Pixel devices. What if you wanted to develop a Star Wars robot, and could see the actions performed by the Star Wars robot first, just to know if all’s good? The simulations could help you identify small to big errors, enabling you to get it right when you actually manufacture the robot.

Brave browser review: privacy focused with a crypto twist

brave-browser

Brave browser is a new-comer to the browser wars that hopes to disrupt the industry by blocking all ads & trackers by default and by focusing on user privacy.

Brave uses its “Shields” system to block ads/trackers, block 3rd party cookies, enforce HTTPS Everywhere, and block phishing/malware, all by default.

Back in the 1990s, The Matrix popularized a virtual reality where the mind was plugged into a computer mainframe and people interacted with one another in an alternate virtual universe. This virtual arena breached the divide between the real world and the virtual-reality arena, with real-life consequences.
