Creating a solution to the privacy issues many WhatsApp users are facing these days, ZapBuddy which is Pakistan’s rival to the messaging service, has launched for Android and iOS.
ZapBuddy is a new social app with distinguishing features. It is a modified form of WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, IMO, Line and other apps.
The app has advanced augmented reality, display picture privacy, device location privacy and encrypted chat. A major feature is that data selling is not a part of their business plan.
“In this application, you can have a different profile picture for every contact, unlike WhatsApp,” the founder of ZapBuddy Majid Aziz told SAMAA TV on its show Naya Din. “You can set a separate profile picture for your family, friends and your colleagues.”
At this point, we’re halfway through the final season of Game of Thrones, and two things have become excessively clear. One, Jon Snow is the protagonist of this show now. Two, Jon Snow sucks.
Where has Jon Snow ever actually succeeded on Game of Thrones?
Spoilers below for all of Game of Thrones, including season 8.
Both as a leader and as a protagonist, as one of the series’s primary load-bearing characters, Jon is one of the most ineffectual people on the entire show. He fails almost perpetually, blundering his way from one situation to the next until someone — usually a more competent woman, including but not limited to Ygritte, Melisandre, Sansa, Arya, and Daenerys — bails him out of his latest problem. Then he’s rewarded, and the cycle repeats again.
PSA: Enthusiasts building their own PCs are accustomed to keeping up with latest drivers, especially when it comes to things like graphics cards. Motherboard BIOS updates are also critical to get the most out of your hardware, but it does happen that when everything is running smoothly after weeks or months, you tend to overlook further BIOS upgrades as they mostly bring compatibility improvements and those are not necessary unless you are switching to newer hardware on the same motherboard.
This happened at the office recently when one of our Ryzen systems refused to wake up from sleep properly. After much troubleshooting, we couldn't narrow down the issue until we realized this started happening only after we installed a new GeForce RTX graphics card. Long story short, a BIOS upgrade to the latest firmware in our Asrock motherboard was everything we needed.
Moreover, these days BIOS updates can be performed with ease using Windows utilities offered by most motherboard manufacturers. If you're unsure or don't remember the exact make and model, check out our guide to find your motherboard's brand and model. There are ways to find this on Windows without installing any software, or you can go straight for CPU-Z or Speccy, which will list all your hardware along with some extra system information in a snap.
LG  was once a stalwart of the smartphone industry — remember its collaboration with Facebook  back in the day? — but today the company is swiftly descending into irrelevance.
The latest proof is LG’s Q1 financials, released this week, which show that its mobile division grossed just KRW 1.51 trillion ($1.34 billion) in sales for the quarter. That’s down 30% year-on-year and the lowest income for LG Mobile for at least the last eight years. We searched back eight years to Q1 2011 — before that LG was hit and miss with releasing specific financial figures for its divisions.
To give an indication of its decline, LG shipped more than 15 million phones in Q4 2015 when its revenue was 3.78 trillion RKW, or $3.26 billion. That’s 2.5 times higher than this recent Q1 2019 period.
