Rumour online is that Google is hard at work at implementing fingerprint scan access – feature well known from smartphones – to online websites. First step on this path was for Chrome to implement WebAuthn standard that allows such function. Fingerprint logging will reach Chrome soon, but will only be available for testers at first.

Facebook ”memories” are getting a lifting

That is great. I cannot wait to remember all the good moments that me and my eight Facebook friends have hardly spent together. Mm. I must be an exception, though, since seemingly lots of people enjoy their FB memories. It is for them that Zuckerberg is updating memories with new functions.

Destiny 2: Forsaken, another expansion pack

Destiny 2 is a bad game. Yeah, I know it has a load of fans. It is not my fault that kids have a bad taste and some adults want to spend their free time playing brainless video games. Destiny 2 is now in the same situation that the first game was – basic game has proven shallow and unentertaining, so it has to be saved by releasing a whole bunch of expensive and good-to-bad expansions. Forsaken seems to be on the good side, but we will see… promised features of the game include:– new campaign in a location known from the first game, The Reef,– improved mods system ...
