Facebook Forced To Pay $90million To Settle Lawsuit For Spying On User’s Activity

Meta, Facebook’s parent company, has agreed to pay $90 million (approximately ₹676 Crores) to resolve a lawsuit over how the social media giant tracked users’ online activity.

The lawsuit, which was filed ten years ago, is about Facebook’s access to users’ online activity even after they have logged out.

Facebook’s signature “like” button plug-in has been a major contributor to this process as it granted access to a large amount of user data.

In typical Facebook fashion, the company acquired cookies (essentially a trail of user activity on Facebook), giving access to what sites a user visited, things they checked and purchased, and other interactions they may have with the website.

How To Reset Your Nintendo Switch

If your Nintendo Switch is playing up and having glitches, or if you’re about to sell it or give it to someone, you might want to reset it.

There are a few different ways to reset your Switch with slightly different results, and we’ll run you through each in turn, down below.

Since all of Nintendo’s Switch models run the same software, these steps should work on original Switches, Switch Lites and Switch OLED models in the same way.

How to hard reset your Switch

If you want to keep all your data but perform a total reboot of your Switch (for example, if it’s not turning on), the steps are quite simple.

  1. When the system is powered off, hold the power button for 15 seconds
  2. Release the power button then press it to power on
  3. If your console boots, the reset has been completed

How to factory reset your Switch

If you’re instead looking to wipe your Switch completely clean, ready for a new user to set themselves up on it without access to any of your data, you’ll want to factory reset the console. Do that by following these steps:

  1. From the console’s home menu, select Settings
  2. Scroll down to System on the left menu bar
  3. Scroll to the bottom of these options and select Formatting Options
  4. Select Initialize Console then hit OK
  5. Wait for the process to erase your data

Once this is over, your console will be like new and all data will be gone. Back up anything you want to keep, first!

If you can’t do the steps above you can go a more in-depth route, with the steps below.

  1. With the console powered off, hold down the volume up and volume down keys, then hold the power button
  2. Hold these buttons down until Maintenance Mode starts
  3. From here, select Initialize Console to erase your data (an option is there to keep your saves instead)

How To Activate Samsung Easy Mode

Samsung’s smartphones are some of the very best on the market, and rightly have a reputation for pushing the boundaries of what a phone can do.

That means they can be a little complicated to get your head around if you’re not an experienced smartphone user, though. Thankfully, there’s a very useful mode that you can toggle to make things simpler – easy mode. Here’s how it works and how to turn it on.

What is Samsung easy mode?

What Samsung calls easy mode is effectively a setting on its smartphones that makes its display significantly easier to read.

It works by making your app icons a bunch bigger, as well as all buttons and fonts, to make it easier to read what’s on your phone’s display.

This is perfect for those with visual impairments but also for those newer to smartphones, like older people.

It also simplifies your home screen and adds an “Apps” button to make it obvious where to find your apps list.

How to turn on Samsung easy mode

Turning on easy mode is relatively straightforward – follow these steps to activate it.

  1. Swipe down from the top of your display and tap the gear icon at the top right corner
  2. Select Display in your settings
  3. Scroll down until you see Easy mode and tap on it
  4. Toggle the setting on using the switch

Underneath the toggle when it’s on you’ll see some extra settings to customise, including the tap-and-hold delay and high contrast keyboard colour settings.

This Right Deal Here Is The Samsung Galaxy A14

Samsung’s unannounced Galaxy A14 has appeared in leaked press shots and it looks pretty good for a budget handset, too.

The phone, which is expected to come with a large 6.8-inch Full HD+ display, has been shared by leaker Evan Blass. He says that these images are the real deal and will be used by Samsung for press purposes, rather than the unofficial renders that had been shared before now.

These images show the front, back, and side of the phone including a trio of cameras around the back alongside an LED flash. The main camera is expected to be a 50-megapixel shooter, with a 13-megapixel camera handling selfie duties around the front.

On the inside, we’ve been told to look forward to an as-yet-unknown Exynos chip and a 5,000mAh battery.

The phone itself is expected to be “quite aggressively priced” while Blass also expects that carriers will offer “numerous ways to take it home for free”.

As for when Samsung is expected to finally take the wraps off the Galaxy A14, we still don’t have any concrete information. However, the report by Blass appears to suggest that it isn’t too far out, saying that Samsung will announce it after “people have already done their holiday shopping” as part of the recent Black Friday and Cyber Monday festivities.
