Goodbye accountants! Startup builds AI to automate all your accounting

Smacc, which uses AI to automate accounting, has secured a $3.5 million Series A round from Cherry Ventures, Rocket Internet, Dieter von Holtzbrinck Ventures, Grazia Equity and business angels.

Smacc offers small and medium-sized enterprises a platform to digitize and automate accounting and financial processes.

The founding trio Uli Erxleben, Janosch Novak and Stefan Korsch came up with the idea after find accounting to be the most painful part of their own startup. Erxleben managed Rocket Internet’s US ventures in New York and San Francisco, and is also the founder of Berliner Berg, a craft beer startup.

Customers submit their receipts to Smacc, which turns them into a machine-readable format, encrypts them, then allocates them to an account. The platform gradually also self-learns, tracking invoices, sales and costs, as well as their liquidity.

The system checks against some 64 data points, verifies the invoice, checking, for example, that the math adds up, and even if the VAT-ID and its issuer are correct. Once the system has already learned how to deal with the supplier on position levels, it will do it automatically. Over time – says the startup – it becomes better and better at automatically dealing and allocating the data.

“Now you have all you need for liquidity planning and revenue/expense reports close to real-time in the tool w/o the need to input data yourself or wait for your external account to do it for you at month’s end,” says Erxleben.

There are other cloud-based accounting software providers out there, such as Xero and Crunch Accounting, but Smacc says what makes them different is the high level of automation of all the accounting and finance processes that companies usually input manually.

Woman wins $10,000 after suing Microsoft over ‘Forced’ Windows 10 Upgrade

Since the launch of Windows 10 in July last year, Microsoft is constantly pestering users to upgrade their PCs running older versions of the operating system.

However, many users who are happy with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and don’t want upgrade to Windows 10 now or anytime soon are sick of this forceful unwanted upgrade.

One of the victims to this unwanted Windows 10 installation has made Microsoft pay $10,000.

A California woman has won $10,000 from Microsoft over an unwanted Windows 10 upgrade.

Must Read: How to Stop Windows 7 or 8 from Downloading Windows 10 Automatically.

Teri Goldstein sued Microsoft for upgrading her computer to Windows 10 without her authorization, which made it slow and unusable for days at a time, reports the Seattle Times.

The PC used by Goldstein, who operates a Californian travel agency, was apparently upgraded to Windows 10 shortly after Microsoft offered free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.1 users last year.

Goldstein said the update, which she never asked for, was so problematic that it left her PC crashing and unusable for days at a time. She contacted Microsoft’s tech support, but they were unable to assist her.

So, Goldstein sued Microsoft for lost wages and the cost of a new computer.

Microsoft dropped its appeal in May this year to avoid further legal expenses, and Goldstein won the court case last month, awarded with $10,000 from Microsoft.

Microsoft has been aggressively pushing Windows 10 for computers running Windows 7 and 8 since the beginning of this year by re-categorizing Windows 10 as a “Recommended Update” in Windows Update, instead of an “optional update.”

However, if the affected users started suing the software giant, then it could cost Microsoft a lot more than the actual cost of its newest Windows 10 operating system.

In response, Microsoft said users have a month to roll back to their previous operating system and can always contact its customer support.

However, the company will not stop ‘Upgrade to Windows 10′ notification from constantly showing up on your screen. Trust me; Microsoft has to achieve its goal to deploy Windows 10 on over 1 Billion devices worldwide as soon as possible.

5 Useful Ways To Fix CPU Overheating Issues

So guys, what are some ways to check CPU temperature of your machine? Yeah, having an idea about how hot your device could get is more of a necessity than a fun task.

You might have heard about the various computer temperature monitor tools that you can install on your computer to monitor the temperature of the components inside. These tools are able to read data from the different hardware monitoring sensors (Digital Thermal Sensor) fitted inside the computer and tell you the CPU temp in real-time.

For the people who want to do it the hard way, they can open the BIOS settings where they can monitor CPU temperature by using any third party tool. But this thing differs across devices from different OEMs.

Now, before I tell you about the CPU temp monitor tools for Windows 10, you should know some other things first.

Why you should check CPU temperature?

As I just said, having an idea of the hotness of your machine is very important. If your machine is releasing scorching heat every day, then it might be a sign of some big problem that’s about to happen.

When your PC is experiencing temperatures beyond what it can handle, it will surely reduce its longevity. Back in the college days, one of my friends ended up damaging his entire motherboard due to CPU overheating issues. So, I do have an idea of how bad it can get.

How hot can a CPU get before it’s damaged?

It depends.

Different machines are capable of handling different levels of temperature. For example, a desktop computer with liquid cooling can absorb more heat than a laptop just having a cooling fan.

Heavy machines which require a lot of processing power end up reaching higher temperature levels. So, in that case, what could be hot for an everyday PC is considered normal in the case of a workstation or gaming PC. You might experience computer overheating while gaming or while processing a large file as more computer resources are being consumed.

What’s the normal CPU temperature range for a machine?

In everyday scenarios, the temperature of your PC shouldn’t exceed 60 degrees for a longer duration of time. So, the ideal working temperature when you’re not doing any resource-heavy task should be around 50 degrees.

While gaming, the CPU temperature range for some PCs could shoot up to 80-degree Celsius. The upper limit depends on the kind of hardware fitted in your machine. But if your machine is crossing 100 degrees for no reason then it’s better you should start doing something to mitigate overheating issues.

How to check CPU temp? 5 Best CPU Temperature Monitor Apps For Windows 10

If you’re using a Windows PC, then there are a lot of tools available that can help you check CPU temp. Most of these apps show you the temperature levels for individual CPU cores and are available for free.

1. Core Temp

Core Temp is a famous hardware monitor app that you can use to check CPU temp. A useful thing is that temperature levels are also displayed in the notification area.

One of its selling points is that you can add a bunch of add-ons to improve its functionality. For example, you can download the Core Temp Gadget which is a widget displayed on your screen. It shows all the important temperature details so that you don’t need to open the Core Temp app every time.

2. Open Hardware Monitor

Another computer temperature monitor app that you can try on Windows 10 is the Open Hardware Monitor. As the name says, the tool is open source and can be downloaded for free.

The user interface is neat and clean, and in addition to the CPU temperature, you can also check the temperature of the GPU of your machine.

One problem I found with this PC temperature monitor app is it detected my system RAM to be 8GB, whereas it is 16GB.

3. HWMonitor

This CPU temp checking tool is made by CPU-ID. It makes the popular software CPU-Z which can also be used to check CPU temperatures. HWMonitor, on the other hand, offers more detailed information related to your hardware.

In comparison to the Open Hardware Monitor, this popular CPU temp monitoring tool can also show you the temperature readings for the integrated GPU as well.

4. Speccy

Speccy is a system information tool created by the same people who created Piriform CCleaner. But it doubles up as a reliable CPU temperature monitor app for Windows 10. Not just the CPU, the free tool can be used to know the temperature readings of many other hardware components.

One thing I like about this tool is it provides a lot of information and all of it’s neatly arranged making it easy to read. You can know the temperatures for the CPU, hard drive and the GPU, but here it doesn’t show the temperatures for the internal GPU which is a bit disappointing.

5. SpeedFan

Another CPU temp monitor tool that you can try on your Windows 10 (or older) machine is SpeedFan. The main purpose of SpeedFan is to let you manually control the speed of the cooling fan on your machine.

But it also displays other details, including the CPU temperature of your machine. Just like Core Temp, it also displays an icon in the notification area on which you can hover your mouse to know the CPU temperature.

Apart from that, there are numerous other utilities that let you analyze the temperature of your PC without any issue. Some of them are platform specific such as the Intel XTU.

How to fix CPU Overheating?

Now you’ve figured out that the components of your machine, including the CPU, are heating up more than they should. So, what are some ways that you can try to reduce overheating on your machine?

1. Clean the blocked heat sink and remove internal dust

One thing I always knew is having dust deposit inside your machine could make it overheat and degrade the performance. But recently, I got to experience this thing personally.

I cleaned my laptop after a long time and the difference it has made is considerable. There is a significant reduction in the boot times and the overall smoothness of the machine has improved.

So, you might consider regularly cleaning the heat sink and other internal components to avoid the deposit of debris which might block the internal airflow.

2. Maintain good airflow around your PC

It is also another essential method to keep your machine cool and prevent CPU overheating. Make sure the airflow around and inside the machine is not being obstructed while you’re using it. For example, don’t consider putting your machine on the bed too often, it hampers the airflow in the bottom part.

Here, you need to check if the cooling fan inside your machine is working properly or not. If you have an older PC, then you might consider installing a cooling fan below it.

3. Choose the right case

This one relates to the above point and is an important step if you’re using a desktop machine. The case you choose for your machine should have good airflow dynamics so that the heat from the hardware components can easily dissipate in the surroundings.

4. Use your PC at low-power settings

Switching to the high-performance mode can have its benefits. But, your PC doesn’t need so much power all the time. It happens to me every now and then, I forget to switch back to low power mode when I am done with a resource-heavy task.

So make sure you don’t do the same to prevent an unwanted rise in temperatures. It might not make much of a difference, but still, something is better than nothing.

5. Check for the external culprits

Another reason why your PC might overheat is because of some apps running on it. Here I’m not talking about legit resource-hungry apps and games.

If the temperature levels on your machine are considerably higher when you’re doing nothing, then the culprit could be an app that you haven’t installed intentionally. Some malware hiding inside your PC could be forcing it to exhaust all of the system resources. You can look for these apps in the Task Manager and on the Apps page in the Settings app.

So these are the ways by which you can monitor the CPU and GPU temperatures on your machine and fix the pc overheating problem to extend its life. If you have something to add, drop your thoughts in the comments.

Researchers Double WiFi Capacity Leading to Dramatically Increased Speeds

Our systems are getting smaller, and they are getting better.

It wasn’t too long ago that researchers from Columbia Engineering created full-duplex radio integrated circuits (ICs) in nanoscale CMOS that allowed transmission and reception in a wireless radio. This system used two antennas—one serving as the transmitter and the other as the receiver.

Today, another breakthrough technology in the field of telecommunications has been unveiled by the team—a similar system that only uses one antenna; which makes the entire system more compact and even more powerful, as it integrates a non-reciprocal circulator and a full-duplex radio on a nanoscale silicon chip.

“This technology could revolutionize the field of telecommunications,” says Harish Krishnaswamy, director of the Columbia High-Speed and Mm-wave IC (CoSMIC) Lab.

Krishnaswamy continues by noting the ‘first ever’ nature of this breakthrough, “our circulator is the first to be put on a silicon chip, and we get literally orders of magnitude better performance than prior work.”

And he comments on the significance, saying that “full-duplex communications, where the transmitter and the receiver operate at the same time and at the same frequency, has become a critical research area and now we’ve shown that WiFi capacity can be doubled on a nanoscale silicon chip with a single antenna. This has enormous implications for devices like smartphones and tablets.”

Silicon Radio Chips

The ability to place the circulator on the same chip as the rest radio can help to reduce the size of the system, improve performance, and it can even introduce new functionalities that are ultimately essential to a full duplex receiver.

“What really excites me about this research is that we were able to make a contribution at a theoretically fundamental level…and also demonstrate a practical RF circulator integrated with a full-duplex receiver that exhibited a factor of nearly a billion in echo cancellation, making it the first practical full-duplex receiver chip and which led to the publication in the 2016 IEEE ISSCC,” Krishnaswamy says.

The work was published in Nature Communications,

How to Enable Hidden Offline Browsing In Google Chrome

Hello everyone, I remember the last time when I shared an article on How To Watch and Download YouTube Videos Offline, someone asked me if I could write something on how to browse offline. After a little research, I found something very useful.

As Mozilla and Internet Explorer already offer a “Work Offline” option to save and read later, Google chrome also has a similar feature hidden inside to do the same.

In 2013, Randy Smith, Chrome networking engineer, implemented the support for an Offline Cache Mode in chrome. When you enable this feature, you’ll be able to navigate through the saved content in the cache.

How to Enable Hidden Offline Browsing In Google Chrome

Step 1: 

Type chrome://flags/ in the search bar of Google Chrome.

Step 2: 

Search for “Show Saved Copy Button” (It’ll be easier if you perform the search using CTRL+F ).

Step 3:

You’ll be seeing three options. Set it to “Enabled“, and restart the browser.

Step 4:

The next time you start the browser without an internet connection and enter some URL, it will ask you to “Show Saved copy” if the URL you entered is present in the local cache.

Click it and you are good to go. See the example below:

After loading the saved copy from cache, my website homepage looks like this:

Note:

The URL you entered must be stored in the local cache. If you want to access a particular page I’ll recommend you to copy and paste the URL in sticky notes or somewhere just before closing the browser.

Some of you may not find this feature working for the first time but it will surely run after a couple of restarts.
