Some iPhone and android lock screens are getting advertisements

“I recently flew for the first time in 20 years, and I must say I wasn’t fully prepared for what a nightmare flying has become,” a reader wrote. “For entertainment, I brought my 15-year-old Toshiba laptop. It was big and bulky. In fact, the computer screen wouldn’t open all of the way while sitting on my tray.” “How about an Amazon Fire?” I suggested.

Would it annoy you if adverts appeared right there on the lock screen of your phone? Be prepared. They will arrive. According to TheVerge, when your iPhone updates to version 16 in September, you’ll see advertisements as well as links to apps and news every time you glance down, without having to do anything. A lock screen firm named Glance will start delivering advertisements to some Android phones as early as next month. Without tapping, you can view news, movies, games, photographs, quizzes, and advertisements. The typical individual looks at their phone 65 times every day. In the slopes there is gold.


  • To transfer stuff from your Windows PC to the Fire, plug in your tablet. Once plugged in, tap “Settings” on the tablet, then type “USB preferences” in the search bar. Next, tap “File Transfer.” When you’re back at your computer, you’ll see the Fire listed in File Explorer under “This PC.” Click the memory card icon for the Fire and create a new folder for your videos; the Amazon Fire won’t let you copy stuff to its folders. Now open a second instance of File Explorer. Drag and drop your movies from the PC window to the Fire window.

  • The reader currently stores his videos on a 256-gigabyte thumb drive, but these can be copied to a tablet. The Amazon Fire has a slot for a memory card, which can hold up to one terabyte of storage space. You could have 500 two-hour movies on there. Considering the $60 starting price, a Fire is a lot cheaper than an iPad, which starts at $329.

For example, when a friend searched for a Kit Kat clock, Amazon told him it was $70. When he Googled it, he saw the same clock on Amazon for $60. When I Googled “The Disappearing Spoon,” a wonderful book about all the elements that make up our world, I found the paperback for $10 less than Amazon initially showed me on a different page. There was even more of a price difference in the hardcover version.

For a seamless experience on your Fire, install the free “VLC” from the Fire’s app store. VLC will play more file types than the Fire does and makes it easy to find the stuff you just copied to your tablet. Batteries are notorious for leaking into the environment after they land in the dump. But scientists at the Ritsumeikan University of Japan have figured out how to extract precious metals by microwaving, recovering 97 percent of a battery’s manganese oxide and zinc. This is 1.5 times more than conventional electric furnace-based heating, though it takes only half the time. More info at
