Project Latte: How Microsoft wants to integrate Android apps into Windows 10

Windows 10 may soon be able to run mobile apps designed for Android. Update on the technical details that allow this porting.  Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to run their Android apps on Windows 10 with little or no code changes. How? 'Or' What ? By packaging them as an MSIX app package format and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed " Latte ," according to Windows Central, which says it will go into production next year. Microsoft had already tried to put Android applications under Windows 10 with the Astoria project, which has since aborted. The Latte project is probably powered by the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). But Microsoft will need to provide its own Android subsystem for Google's OS apps to actually work. Microsoft has announced that the WSL will soon be compatible with GPU acceleration, which should improve the performance of applications runnin

5G: the impact of detailed electromagnetic waves

The National Frequency Agency has released its report measuring waves during 5G experiments in France. It puts forward reassuring results. While 5G must arrive in France this summer, many residents of France are worried about the effects of these new waves on their health. In an attempt to answer their questions, the National Frequency Agency (ANFR) has published a report on the exposure values ​​measured during several 5G pilot deployments in France. A document relayed by Clubic and whose results seem reassuring.

5G: the impact of detailed electromagnetic waves

The study thus concentrates on the experiments allowed via 5G antennas with orientable beams, in the 3.5 GHz band. A frequency which must offer an ideal compromise between coverage and speed across France. After ignition and without traffic, ANFR experts measured an average level of exposure in the 5G band at 0.06 V / m, with a maximum level of 0.36 V / m. This is far below the legal value, set at 61 V / m.

New indicator

The study also looked at exposure to the airwaves with continuous traffic. Again, the results seem to be reassuring. With the download of a 1 GB document, the level of exposure varies between 1.1 to 9 V / m depending on the operator. Thus, details Clubic, the experiment carried out by Bouygues Telecom in partnership with the equipment supplier Huawei made it possible to measure an exposure level at 0.1-0.2 V / m without traffic, at 1.1 V / m during sending the famous 1 GB file in a given direction, and at 9 V / m when the antenna transmits continuously and at full load in a given direction. Higher rates but which also remain well below the legal value.

The ANFR also clarified that this data collected would enable it to propose a new indicator centered on 5G. It should reflect "the average exposure created in the presence of traffic by 5G relays with orientable beams". More concretely, this index should make it possible to better measure the exposure of the French to the waves produced by this fifth generation.
