Kyocera has completed construction of a floating solar power plant

At the CEATEC Fair last October, Kyocera announced the construction of a new mega solar power plant, which, unlike typical solar farms, was to be built on water. The company has just announced that its project has already been completed and will soon start producing electricity.

Solar farms are a very convenient method of producing electricity. However, to make such power plants efficient enough, they have to occupy huge areas of land, and this is usually expensive, which makes the investment cost-effective.

Kyocera last year presented a very interesting idea to build a floating solar power plant in Japan that would not be valuable to land because it would float on water, on interconnected platforms made of polyethylene.

The well-known Airbnb platform enhances the security of your user accounts. It will help in this multi-stage user authentication system, which will provide much better protection against hackers.

Hackers lurk on users practically on every page by taking over our accounts in a variety of services and then using them for various purposes. This also applies to accounts on the popular Airbnb platform, which increasingly fall prey to cybercriminals.

Once the hacker has taken over our account, he will know when we are leaving for holidays, how long we will be away from home, and what is our address. So it is possible to steal our apartment without hesitation while we are resting.

To avoid such situations, Airbnb introduces a new, better account security system that uses a multi-step verification of your identity. This is not a typical two-step system that sends us an extra code for a smartphone, but something else. You must authorize any phone, tablet or computer from which you log in to your account, using this unique email or SMS code.

In addition, the platform will notify the user with a text message of every change made to his account.

And as if that was not enough, machine learning algorithms using location and IP address will predict whether the person who logs in to the account is the legitimate owner or hacker. If the system thinks it is a hacker, then he will request additional information.

These changes should better protect users from the threat.…

It turned out, however, that these reports are not true because they contradict the latest information from Engadget, whose editors claim that nothing in this matter has changed.

Google is still working on its own VR goggles and has been looking for engineers for a few months with the right knowledge to help build it. What’s more, it is self-contained goggles which, unlike other devices of this type, will not require you to operate a smartphone or computer. The product is expected to make use of a combination of virtual and extended reality with a strong emphasis on video game functionality.…
