The report breaks down 10 different metrics by either worldwide data or stats from the top 10 countries. You can see information on the number of yearly and monthly active Firefox desktop users, average daily use, how many users are running the latest version of the browser, top language settings, how many people are using Tracking Protection and the top add-ons. Mozilla notes that it uses this sort of data to track crash rates, answer specific product questions and measure the impact of its experiments. And for those interested in web usage trends, they can observe interesting tidbits like internet usage goes down in China during the Spring Festival and at upwards of six hours per day, the US averages the most browser use per person."Firefox is an open source project and we think the data generated should be useful to the public as well," Mozilla said. "Code contributors should be able to see how many users their work impacted last month (256 million), researchers should be able to … [Read more...] about Mozilla shares Firefox user data for research and public use
A STRIKING image of the Grim Reaper adorns the front cover of Britain's leading Catholic magazine to mark the "devastating" result of the Republic's abortion referendum. With the headline, 'Ireland has fallen', the publication reflects on the fallout, with one follower on Twitter writing in response: "let's boycott Dublin". The London-based weekly publication, founded in 1888, has a circulation of more 20,000. Meanwhile, English actor John Cleese has waded into the controversy over Northern Ireland's strict abortion laws - describing the restrictions as "sad". The Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star tweeted to his 2.5 million followers that the north's unique position is the result of the "price paid" for the Conservative government's coalition with the DUP, who remain opposed to the relaxation of the north's abortion laws. Comedian John Cleese has given his opinion on abortion in the north His tweet, posted yesterday, comes at a time of increasing calls by both … [Read more...] about Catholic publication uses Grim Reaper image post abortion referendum
Google’s Cloud Tensor Processing Units are now available in public beta for anyone to try, providing customers of the tech titan’s cloud platform with specialized hardware that massively accelerates the training and execution of AI models. The Cloud TPUs, which Google first announced last year, work by providing customers with specialized circuits solely for the purpose of accelerating AI computation. Google tested using 64 of them to train ResNet-50 (a neural network for identifying images that also serves as a benchmarking tool for AI training speed) in only 30 minutes. This new hardware could help attract customers to Google’s cloud platform with the promise of faster machine learning computation and execution. Accelerating the training of new AI systems can be a significant help, since data scientists can then use the results of those experiments to make improvements for future model iterations. Google is using its advanced AI capabilities to attract new blood to … [Read more...] about Google’s AI chips are now open for public use

(Posts: 2610; Member since: 25 Jan 2009) Well you can't really pretend that you're surprised. You Android users do the same thing. iPhone is successful because of Apple's advertising, or because of their name, because of their iPods/computers, because people think they will look cool, because they're fanboys, because people are stupid, because people can't think for themselves. How about iPhone is successful because it's a good phone and people like it. posted on 18 Mar 2011, 11:04 3 21. remixfa (Posts: 14605; Member since: 19 Dec 2008) but.. those are the biggest reasons the iphone is successful. 23.
