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

BP said oil demand will never exceed 2019 level

While many officials, agencies and governments believe oil is only going through a rough patch and will quickly return to pre-pandemic levels, BP is throwing a stone in the pond by announcing the beginning of the end for fossil fuel. 

BP said oil demand will never exceed 2019 level

In a study published on September 14, UK oil giant BP said the relentless growth in demand for oil is over.

“Oil consumption may never return to levels seen before the coronavirus crisis,” the document read, which adds that as the energy transition moves the world away from fossil fuels, the sector can be satisfied. demand that will remain broadly stable over the next two decades. This, according to the most optimistic scenario of the company's analysts.

According to BP's energy outlook, consumption is expected to fall by 50% by 2050 in one scenario, and by nearly 80% in another. However, this outlook also points to a status quo situation, whereby demand will recover, but remain stable at nearly 100 million barrels per day for the next 20 years.

BP thus breaks with the orthodoxy in the middle and becomes the first big actor of the sector to evoke the end of the fuel. Indeed, from the bosses of energy giants to ministers in OPEC countries, industry leaders have insisted that the consumption of black gold will see decades of growth. Time and time again, they have described it as the only commodity that can meet the demands of a growing world population and a growing middle class. 

This allows for a better understanding of the latest company policies, in order to better align with the conclusions of the Paris climate agreement. Last August, its CEO, Bernard Looney announced a 40% reduction in oil and gas production over the next decade, but also $ 5 billion per year to create one of the biggest players in the world. renewable energies in the world.

A group movement of the largest companies in the sector is currently being born to produce more environmentally friendly energies, in the face of pressure from governments and investors.
