• Music Mashable Southeast Asia has on repeat to cope with the lockdown insanity

    The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has got us all stuck at home. As the days turn into weeks and lockdowns or movement controls get extended, everyone is looking for ways to keep the insanity of staying at home at bay.

    Some turn to binge-watching shows on Netflix while others have turn into gamers during this period.

    But if there’s one form of entertainment that all of us rely on to cope with things, it has to be music. It’s no different here for the Mashable Southeast Asia team.

    Here are some of the tunes we’ve been listening to while social distancing at home.

    Sukhbir Cheema – Hiroshi Yoshimura Soundscape

    Sukhbir is a man of zen, and it pretty much reflects in his choice of music. He has been listening to Hiroshi Yoshimura, who’s considered to be the pioneer of ambient music in Japan. True to its genre, Yoshimura’s track

  • The iPhone SE can’t expand lock screen notifications with Haptic Touch

    It’s emerged that the new iPhone SE, which started shipping last Friday, has a curious feature missing: unlike every other modern iPhone, you’re unable to bring up rich content on the lock screen or notification shade with a “Haptic Touch” long press. MacRumors noted the omission, and The Verge has confirmed it on a device of our own.

    You can still see the rich content — like larger images, or buttons for things like archiving emails without opening the app — by swiping lock-screen notifications to the left and tapping “View,” so it’s not like the functionality has gone away completely. Haptic Touch also still works on notifications that come in at the top of the screen with the phone unlocked.

    The inconsistent behavior is certainly an unusual point of differentiation from other iPhones, not to mention an inconvenient one if you were used to the Haptic Touch method.

  • Advantages Of Pharmaceutical Engineering

    Biotechnology or Biotech is a science which entails a broad spectrum of organic engineering and its industrial scopes. about science and technology It’s nearly impossible to imagine trendy biotechnology with out DNA sequencing. Since nearly all of biology centers across the instructions contained in DNA, biotechnologists who hope to switch the properties of cells, crops, and animals must communicate the same molecular language. DNA is made up of four building blocks, or bases, and DNA sequencing is the process of figuring out the order of these bases in a strand of DNA. For the reason that publication of the entire human genome in 2003, the price of DNA sequencing has dropped dramatically , making it a simple and widespread analysis software.

    Brewing and baking bread are examples of processes that fall throughout the idea of biotechnology (use of yeast (= living organism) to produce the desired product). Such conventional processes …

  • FCC Opens 6GHz Spectrum To Allow For Faster WiFi Speeds

    When it comes to determining the speed of your WiFi, there are many different factors that can affect it. For example signal strength is one of those factors, where the further you are away from the signal, the poorer the connection will be. There is also the number of users on your WiFi network, where the more people there are, the less bandwidth there is to go around.

    Then of course there is also your internet package, where if you opted for a lower-end package, your speeds could also be slower. However, the FCC is hoping to eliminate at least one bottleneck and that comes in the form of an expansion of the spectrum, where the FCC has recently approved the expansion of WiFi to the 6GHz band.

    What this means is that it will add as much as five times more bandwidth and should offer up to 2.5 times

  • The Legacy of Math Luminary John Conway, Lost to Covid-19

    In modern mathematics, many of the biggest advances are great elaborations of theory. Mathematicians move mountains, but their strength comes from tools, highly sophisticated abstractions that can act like a robotic glove, enhancing the wearer’s strength. John Conway was a throwback, a natural problem-solver whose unassisted feats often left his colleagues stunned.

    “Every top mathematician was in awe of his strength. People said he was the only mathematician who could do things with his own bare hands,” said Stephen Miller, a mathematician at Rutgers University. “Mathematically, he was the strongest there was.”

    On April 11, Conway died of Covid-19. The Liverpool, England, native was 82.

  • Apple Reportedly Slashes The Number Of 5G iPhone Orders

    While some people are lucky to still have a job and be able to work from home, there are probably thousands of people (if not more) around the world who are out of work or forced to close their businesses due to the coronavirus. As a result, there are some who are predicting that we can look forward to an economic recession.

    Ultimately this means that people will have less money to spend than before, and whatever money they have, they will no doubt want to use and save for more important things like daily necessities. Apple is anticipating this and as such, have reportedly slashed their orders for the 5G iPhone.

    This is according to a report from DigiTimes wo claims to have heard from sources that Apple is cutting back on the number of components they need for the upcoming iPhone 12 that is expected to be launched
