Opera Reborn “rethinks” the browser… with integrated WhatsApp and Facebook | Ars Technica

Opera is Reborn! No, literally, the new version of Opera is called Reborn.FURTHER READINGOpera’s new adblocking browser hopes to end escalating adblock warThe Norwegian browser maker, which was acquired by a Chinese tech company in 2016, has decided that Opera Reborn should focus on an intriguing new feature: the ability to pin Facebook, WhatsApp, and Telegram messaging apps to the left side of the browser. So, instead of tabbing to another browser window to respond to a friend or colleague, the chat window is right there in front of you. There are keyboard shortcuts to switch between multiple chat apps, too.Opera Reborn has received a rather attractive new lick of paint, with refined tabs and a slightly more lively sidebar. The new tab page wallpaper can be changed to a variety of pretty images—though it doesn’t automatically cycle like Bing or the Windows 10 lock screen, alas. About 15 Ars Technica readers will be very excited to learn that Opera Reborn comes with a “dark theme,” too.

The Fifth Ave Apple Cube Has Vanished: Gothamist

The Fifth Ave Apple Cube Has Vanished: Gothamist

The Fifth Ave Apple Cube Has Vanished: Gothamist

The famed Fifth Avenue glass Apple Cube is no more, at least for the foreseeable future. Though the cube existed just yesterday, this morning tipster Josh Weiner spotted a gaping chasm by the GM Building where the monument to interminable lines for the Genius Bar once stood. Though it is a sad day for single-pane glass, the good news is, it’ll allegedly be back once Apple’s done with some renovations on the flagship store, though one should always be skeptical of locations that are “closed for renovations.” RIP HUNAN BALCONY.Apple apparently spent $2 million to take down the cube to help facilitate its massive expansion at the 767 Fifth Avenue space—the store plans to swell from 32,000 to 77,000 square feet in order to accommodate more tourists and their unending questions about iPads. Apple has temporarily taken up residence at the former FAO Schwarz space inside the GM Building, so instead of being full of expensive toys for children, it is now full of expensive toys for adults, and also children.

Google Won’t Patch A Critical Android Flaw Before ‘Android O’ Release

Google Won’t Patch A Critical Android Flaw Before ‘Android O’ Release

Millions of Android smartphones are at serious risk of “screen hijack” vulnerability that allows hackers to steal your passwords, bank details, as well as helps ransomware apps extort money from victims.The worse thing is that Google says it won’t be patched until the release of ‘Android O’ version, which is scheduled for release in the 3rd quarter this year.And the worse, worse, worse thing is that millions of users are still waiting for Android N update from their device manufacturers (OEMs), which apparently means that majority of smartphone users will continue to be victimized by ransomware, adware and banking Trojans for at least next one year.According to CheckPoint security researchers, who discovered this critical flaw, the problem originates due to a new permission called “SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW,” which allows apps to overlap on a device’s screen and top of other apps.This is the same feature that lets Facebook Messenger floats on your screen and pops up when someone wants to chat.
