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

Neighboring rights: Google pays some media without actually losing ground to press publishers

Without giving up on neighboring rights, Google has established partnerships with the media and will pay for their articles included in its newsfeeds. While the European media hope to sell it on these rights, the publishers who have accepted its offers are practically accused of treachery.
Google pays some media without actually losing ground to press publishers

Google, without actually changing its position on the subject of neighboring rights, decided to pay certain press publishers for the use of their articles. Indeed, the web giant announced in a blog post that he was negotiating with the media to compensate press publishers for their content. Initial reports indicate that Google plans to launch a "licensing program later this year to pay publishers for high-quality content for a new information experience."

Brad Bender, vice president of product management at Google, said negotiations have taken place for several months with the Spiegel group in Germany and Diarios Associados in Brazil. After the success of the latter, Australian media Schwartz Media, The Conversation and Solstice Media are also said to have signed a partnership with Google.

In fact, the web giant will pay to select certain articles which will be integrated into a tab within the news feeds and referencing of content such as Google News and Google Discover.

However, these partnerships are not good news for European media associations. While in France, the competition authority had asked Google to negotiate in good faith with the media, and in Australia, the authorities wish to force Google to share its advertising revenues with the media, individual partnerships could be disunited the media. Indeed, those who benefit from it no longer have any reason to fight with others for the web giant to pay neighboring rights. In this regard, for most of their European colleagues, the press publishers who accepted the agreement are not far from being considered guilty of high treason.
