I love NotePad++ (NPP) and it seems I am not the only one that wants to keep it alive and well. Despite labels claiming it was an “unofficial fan website created for general information/educational purposes only,” Ho explained that this website had a “hidden agenda.” Ho called on the community to report the website to get it taken down and “safeguard our community and maintain a secure online ecosystem.”

The US restrictions on export to China of high performance silicon might have unforeseen consequences. The US government recently tightened its restrictions on chip exports in an effort to make it more difficult for China to access artificial hardware and services, all in the interest of national security. However, the restrictions could prove "insignificant" in the short term, and even worse, could actually boost China's efforts to develop AI chips in the long run, according to a TrendForce report.

An upgraded version of Androids "Find my Device" feature has launched, but it isn't compatible with the Apple iPhone feature that goes by the same name. Tracking tags are handy, but in the wrong hands, they can be misused. The Find My Device network supports unwanted tracker alerts across Android and iOS, so you’ll get a notification if a tracking tag that isn’t yours is moving with you — even if you’re on an iPhone. The network also limits the number of times you can get a tracking tag’s location in an added effort to deter stalkers. Dave Kleidermacher, Android’s VP of security and privacy, tells The Verge that this shouldn’t affect how most people use the tags.

Floppy Disks, no one still uses them for critical business applications still. Right? Officials at San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Train Control Project, explained that the system was cutting edge back in 1998 when it was installed. Since then, nothing has changed or been upgraded because, “The system is currently working just fine,” but that said, they know “that with each increasing year risk of data degradation on the floppy disks increases and that at some point there will be a catastrophic failure.”

Where would you be without GMail? Would the same 20 million spam emails still be sent each day? We will never know, but Happy 20th Birthday anyway GMail. Sergey Brin says, "And while developing Gmail was a bit more complicated than we anticipated, we're pleased to be able to offer it to the user who asked for it." The service is real, however. The advertisement injection has sparked fierce internal debates, reports The NY Times. "Many people inside the company are worried that users might fear that the content of their e-mail messages could be used to tailor individual advertising messages"

Trizae sent news that should warm the heart of the one iApple retro gamer. The move should allow the retro console emulators already on Android to bring their apps to the iPhone. Game emulators have long been banned from iOS, leaving iPhone owners in search of workarounds via jailbreaking or other workarounds. They're also one of the key reasons, so far, that iPhone owners in the European Union might check out third-party app stores now that they're allowed in the region.
