The new OnePlus 9 phones have come into the market packed with features like the SD 888 chipset, 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display and the Hasselblad camera. But one feature of the smartphones’ seems to have been replaced with another without including it in any announcements. The feature in question is File Dash. The recently launched flagship series has adopted Google’s Nearby Share in place of File Dash. The default OnePlus File Manager does not show the File Dash option, several buyers of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro complained on Reddit. The company also confirmed the same in a statement to XDA, which means that File Dash has been ditched in favour of the Nearby Share. For File Dash to work and transfer files wirelessly, the sender and the receiver both had to be OnePlus phones . The company may have thought implementing a more universal solution would be better for a OnePlus phone. The Nearby Share feature can be found by going to Settings, then “Device Connections”, and … [Read more...] about OnePlus 9 series ditches this feature, adopts a popular Google feature
To have hope for nursing homes, amid the pessimism of a pandemic, takes a contrarian spirit. After all, thousands of seniors were locked up and left to die in hopelessly outdated long-term care. They were trapped by a so-called “iron ring” that suffocated them while proving all too porous for the virus. People suffering from dementia were abandoned and alone, unable to understand the incomprehensible. Yet the author of a new book on long-term care is taking the long view, and it is passionately contrarian. She urges us to rethink our outdated views on how we care for — and corral — those who can no longer care for themselves. Moira Welsh didn’t want to write yet more words about the never ending despair in long-term care. She had already written countless articles crusading against nursing home miseries and indignities in the pages of the Toronto Star as an investigative reporter over the past two decades. A couple of full disclosures about her book, “ Happily Ever Older — … [Read more...] about Long-term care needs fresh thinking and new money, not old excuses
The COVID-19 crisis has laid bare shortcomings in Ontario’s long-term-care system, which is tasked to look after some of our most vulnerable populations. One of those shortcomings is a lack of up-to-date information about deaths and outbreaks in seniors’ homes. The Star has found that data reported daily by Public Health Ontario vastly under-reports the true number of people dying in these settings. That’s because the province’s official daily tally of fatal cases from the COVID-19 pandemic does not yet include hundreds of confirmed deaths in long-term-care homes, due largely to reporting delays. More current, home-by-home information is now also being released via the Ministry of Long-Term Care, but these numbers have their own limitations; they’re often out of date and they don’t include detail on outbreaks in Ontario retirement homes or hospitals, for instance. The Star has built an interactive map of every COVID-19 outbreak in Ontario to help you navigate this lack of … [Read more...] about Every COVID-19 outbreak in Ontario, mapped
Email was invented in 1971 and has changed very little since then. In that time, it’s managed to become a major security risk to individuals, governments, and private companies around the world. This might explain the rising popularity of so-called “secure email” providers. So what exactly makes secure email different from regular email? What Is Secure, Encrypted Email? Secure email is essentially regular email with a few security enhancements on top. The technology behind the scenes is ultimately the same, which means that you already know how to use a secure email provider. You still send messages to named addresses with an @ and a domain, and you still get plenty of spam. For that reason, anyone can call themselves a secure email provider. There’s no dictionary definition, and most major email providers like Gmail and Outlook would also consider themselves “secure” despite falling short of the mark. Most providers who use the term to describe their service go much … [Read more...] about What Is Secure Email, and Should You Switch?
