64-bit Google Chrome browser moves into beta - PC World NEW!

    Google’s 64-bit Chrome browser took the last step before being formally released, as Google published a 64-bit beta of the browser on Wednesday morning.If you’d like, you can visit Google’s 64-bit Chrome beta page and download the new browser; Google promises that all of your saved information (passwords, bookmarks and the like) will migrate over.

In general, 64-bit addressing opens up the ability for software to use more than 4 gigabytes of RAM—the maximum a 32-bit application can address—plus some performance improvements.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Meet Bleep, BitTorrent’s invite-only serverless chat app - PC World 1 hour ago

    BitTorrent has teased its chat product for months, and now some lucky testers will get the chance to see the pre-alpha in action. The serverless chat client, designed to evade surveillance and big data collection, also has a name: BitTorrent Bleep.“As far as we’re concerned, anything you say is ‘bleep’ to us,” the company said in a Tuesday blog post.First thing’s first: Bleep isn’t just another messaging app. BitTorrent is well-known for its decentralized, peer-to-peer protocol, typically used for file-sharing. The San Francisco-based company described Bleep’s platform as a fully distributed Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) server on top of which is the app, an enhanced SIP-compliant User Agent Client (UAC). How it works: You can choose to send messages straight from your device to your chosen contact without BitTorrent’s servers intercepting it. You can send texts or make calls to online contacts, with offline functionality coming down the pipeline later on.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Michelle Obama says the 'blood of Africa' runs through her veins - Yahoo 1 hour ago

    By Annika McGinnis WASHINGTON (Reuters) - First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech on Wednesday, telling a group of young Africans that the “blood of Africa” runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. I have had the pleasure of traveling to Africa many times over the years, including four trips as first lady, and I have brought my mother and my daughters along whenever I can.” “The blood of Africa runs through my veins, and I care deeply,” Obama said, addressing her listeners as her “brothers” and “sisters.” Three months before congressional elections that could determine the fate of much of President Obama’s platform, Michelle Obama’s popularity remains high while her husband’s has sunk.
