Leinster Rugby vs Bath
Friday 26 August 2016
Venue: Donnybrook Stadium
Leinster Rugby take on England’s Bath in a pre-season friendly...well, the score doesn’t count but it probably won't be totally friendly. 

The last time Leinster and Bath clashed on the pitch in February, Bath were knocked out of the Champions Cup. Their hopes of progressing in the tournament were destroyed by a stunning Leinster team which flaunted new talent such as Gary Ringrose and Ross Molony, who rugby fans will be hearing a lot more about in the near future. 

In this friendly, Bath will be keen to expose any Leinster weaknesses, and Leinster will be looking to push Bath to their limit physically and mentally. It will be contentious and testy, a real treat for any rugby fans among you. 

This match will also be a great way to ease yourself into a long season of matches and tournaments. Look out for who has form and which teams look promising for the season ahead, and you’ll get even more out of all the cups and fixtures in coming months.

€15/€5

Apple given go-ahead for Cork expansion, 1,000 jobs on way

Posted in News on 26 August 2016

Apple’s 5,000-strong Cork workforce is set to increase, with the Hollyhill expansion finally given the go-ahead by An Bord Pleanála.

With 1,000 jobs coming on stream at the new four-storey office block, complemented by 752 new car spaces, Apple’s expansion should start next year, taking five months to complete.

The original plan was to get building over the summer, completing the job by Christmas, however, a series of public objections forced a delay.

This was criticised heavily by Apple, which warned of the “serious” effects on the local economy should the build be shelved, or even delayed.

An Bord Pleanála yesterday (24 August) decided the plan would not seriously affect local properties and would be acceptable in terms of traffic safety, despite some residents complaining of “practically living in an industrial estate”.

It has been quite the month for Apple in Ireland. Two weeks  ago, it received approval from An Bord Pleanála for a major new facility in Athenry, Galway.

Costing €850m, the data centre was also delayed due to dozens of complaints, before the Irish body agreed with the tech giant and allowed for the facility’s construction.

When completed, the centre will power Apple’s online services, including the iTunes Store, the App Store, iMessage, Maps and Siri, for customers across Europe.

To be built on a 500-acre greenfield site in Derrydonnell, the company hopes the new facility will be open by the end of next year, part of a €1.7bn investment that will see a similar build in Denmark.

It’s not just Ireland in Apple’s gaze, though, with renewed plans to pour investment into China, as the tech giant struggles to keep up with a growing number of competitors.

The boost in activity in China from Apple comes after a continual decline in its relevance there, with Android devices far more popular than the iOS equivalent.

WhatsApp to Share User Info With Facebook

Posted in News on 26 August 2016

WhatsApp will soon be sharing user data with its parent company, Facebook.

The change comes as the social network revamps its privacy policy to enable businesses to communicate directly with users of the platform.

“People use our app every day to keep in touch with the friends and loved ones who matter to them, and this isn’t changing. But as we announced earlier this year, we want to explore ways for you to communicate with businesses that matter to you too, while still giving you an experience without third-party banner ads and spam,” WhatsApp said in a blog post.

“Whether it’s hearing from your bank about a potentially fraudulent transaction, or getting notified by an airline about a delayed flight, many of us get this information elsewhere, including in text messages and phone calls. We want to test these features in the next several months, but need to update our terms and privacy policy to do so.”

The newly updated policy reveals that users’ phone number, profile name and photo, online status, last seen status and receipts will be shared. Content of messages will not be shared.

Users do have an opt-out option available to them, however, by going to Settings > Account to choose not to share their info with Facebook.

Users can get a step-by-step walk-through here.

10 new Android Nougat features you should check out now

Posted in News on 24 August 2016

Google is starting to roll out the latest version of Android. If you have a Nexus device, you can grab the update now.

 

While many of the biggest improvements — like longer battery life, better security updates and VR-ready features — won't be immediately obvious once you get the update, there are still plenty of new features to get excited about.

From new emoji and data-saving superpowers to more customization features than ever before, here's a look at our 10 favorite features in Android Nougat.

 

1.) Split-screen multitasking

One of the biggest additions to Android is the ability to use two apps at once in a new split-screen multitasking view. Tap the overview button and drag the app you want to use to the top of the screen, then choose a second app to run beneath it. The windows are resizable too.

2.) New emoji

 

The Nougat update adds the 72 new emoji Unicode added earlier this summer. The new characters include the selfie, bacon, and avocado emoji, as well as support for skin tone variations. There are also are 14 new "animals and nature" emoji and 12 new "activities" emoji.

3.) Customizable Quick Settings

 

Quick Settings, the shortcuts that you pull down from the notifications shade, are now customizable. You can drag them around to re-order them or add new ones, like the option to turn on data saver mode or invert your display colors.

4.) Notifications reply

 

You can now reply directly to notifications without switching apps. Use the feature to reply to emails, texts and notifications from other apps.

5.) Quick Switch

 

Among the new multitasking features is something called Quick Switch, which allows you to quickly move between your two most-recently used apps. Double tap the overview button to toggle between the two.

6.) Split-screen gesture shortcut 

 

This may be best suited to power users, as there are a few steps to enable this, but there is a hidden setting that allows you to enable split-screen viewing with just one gesture. First, you'll need to enable a secret settings menu called "System UI Tuner" by holding down on the settings icon in the notifications shade. Wait until you feel a vibration to let go. This activates the System UI Tuner menu in the device's main settings.

From there head to Settings —> System UI Tuner —> Other —> Enable split-screen swipe-up gesture  and turn the setting on. Once enabled, you can switch to split-screen from within any app by swiping up on the overview button. It's important to note, though, that Google is constantly changing what's in the System UI Tuner so any settings you find in there could disappear without warning.

 

7.) Advanced notification controls 

This is another one you'll only be able to access through the System UI Tuner menu. From there, enable the setting for "Power notification controls." (System UI Tuner —> Other —>Power Notification Controls.) This allows you to prioritize notifications on an app-by-app basis and fine tune what actions notifications can take. For instance, you can mute sounds and vibration for a specific app or block its notifications from appearing on your lock screen. Simply hold down on a notification and adjust the slider to change its settings.

8.) Data Saver

 

Android Nougat comes with a new Data Saver mode that helps you reduce the amount of data your apps are using in the background. Additionally, you can add the option to your notifications shade so you can easily toggle it on from Quick Settings.

9.) Call blocking 

 

The way that Android is handling blocked calls is improving. The numbers you block from texting and calling can now be shared with other apps so the same numbers will be blocked across all the services you use.

10.) Picture-in-Picture (for Android TV)

 

Similar to split-screen mode, Google added picture-in-picture support to Android TV devices so you can browse apps during video playback. Select the picture-in-picture icon while watching a video to pin the video to the top right corner of the screen. You can then browse different apps while watching that video. Press and hold the home button to switch back to the original video or a different recently used app.

Note that Google's Nexus Player is the only set-top box that supports Nougat for now, though it will eventually be available to other Android TV-enabled devices. The feature also requires developers to opt-in, so not all your apps may support picture-in-picture right out of the gate.
