I found something cool to do during the lockdown.  It is the latest app for distance socializing


It is the face-to-face social network where you can connect with the people you care about most. The app makes connecting face to face effortless, alerting you when your friends are “in the house” and ready to chat so you can jump right into the conversation. The same goes for you opening the app!

COVID-19 Is Changing Our World – And Our Attitude To Technology And Privacy –Why Could That Be Dangerous?

Sunday, 29th March, 2020:

A public health professor says the lockdown period is critical for people to change their behaviour and not share the Covid-19 virus.
Professor Michael Baker from Otago University and other health professionals urged the government to implement the level 4 lockdown to break the chain of transmission. It began at 11.59pm on Wednesday.
He told Morning Report the move was further allowing the country to build capacity to stamp out the virus, putting it on a "path of elimination", similar to the one taken by China.
"I know I had my best night's sleep on Wednesday. I was imagining all those unseen chains of transmission around New Zealand that we might have missed gradually getting snuffed out because people are no longer sharing the virus around," he said.

"It's so critical in this period that people change their behaviour and not share this virus."

2020:  Which iPad You Should
Actually Buy and Avoid?

Buying an iPad should be simple. You just buy whatever’s new, right? If only. Apple sells four main iPad models, each with its own strengths. In addition, there are a growing number of older iPads floating around the eBays of the world. Since all these devices generally look the same, it’s important to know what you’re buying and what you should pay for it.

Apple iPad (10.2-Inch, 2019)
Apple's most affordable tablet is a very slight refresh of the iPad that debuted in 2018, except now there's support for the Apple Pencil (first-gen) and the Smart Keyboard (Amazon). It's a shame Apple didn't update the processor as it has the same A10 Fusion chip from 2016 inside, but the iPad should have no trouble running most apps and games. We do like the small 0.5-inch bump in screen size from 9.7 inches to 10.2 (this one is half an inch taller to compensate).

The only downside is, like the 2018 iPad, it has a bit more air gap (space between glass and screen) than the iPad Air, Mini, and Pro, so it isn't our top choice for drawing with the Pencil, though it is compatible and works just fine.

Apple iPad Air (10.5-Inch, 2019)
The 2019 iPad Air adds a faster A12 Bionic processor in the chassis of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro that came out in 2017. So it's the same size as almost every iPad you've ever held, but with slightly more screen space than the new 10.2-inch default iPad. If you're a fan of Touch ID, this is Apple's most powerful iPad that still has a home button and fingerprint sensor.
It's also compatible with the standard Apple Pencil (Amazon), and its laminated screen places the glass closer to the pixels than on the standard iPad, making it more pleasant for drawing or writing. Apple's Smart Keyboard can snap onto it.

Apple iPad Pro (11 or 12.9-inch, 2020)
The iPad Pro is the absolute best iPad, but it doesn't come cheap. Unlike the others, it doesn't have a home button or Touch ID, but it uses the front camera for Face ID just like most modern iPhones. It has slimmer edges around the screen, which allows for a larger display that comes in two sizes. The 12.9-incher is about the size of a magazine, and it's wonderful for drawing with the Apple Pencil (a separate purchase), but the 11-inch model is plenty for most people. The Pencil is different from the one available for other iPads—it magnetically sticks to the edge of the iPad Pro and wirelessly charges.
The 2020 Pro isn't dramatically more powerful than its predecessor. Instead, the upgrades come largely to the camera. There are now two: a 12-megapixel main camera and a 10-megapixel ultrawide lens for snapping sweeping scenes, like on the iPhone 11. There's also a lidar sensor, the kind used to measure depth for self-driving cars, but here it's used for better augmented reality. However, as senior writer Lauren Goode notes in her review (9/10, WIRED Recommends), it's not a drastic improvement, especially if you barely use AR apps.
Perhaps more exciting is the new keyboard with a built-in trackpad that Apple will offer in May. It's expensive at $299, but it might be worth holding out for, as proper cursor support introduced in iPadOS 13.4 helps make all iPads closer to laptops than ever. Alternatively, you can pair the Smart Keyboard with a Bluetooth mouse.

2020: Which Apple iPad to buy?

Best iPad 2019Any Apple iPad is better than any other tablet you can buy, and for almost anyone the entry-level 10.2-inch Apple iPad offers all the features and speed you’ll need for years to come. With the introduction of Smart Keyboard support, on top of Apple Pencil compatibility, to the basic iPad, there’s little the expensive iPad Pro can do that a regular iPad can’t.

The Apple iPad mini (5th generation) is for anyone who wants a smaller tablet. It could fairly be called the iPad Air mini, as it’s spec-for-spec identical to the 3rd-gen iPad Air except for its smaller, 7.9-inch screen and its lack of a Smart Connector. Even the screen is of higher quality than the 10.2-inch iPad’s. These features make it a good choice for kids, people with small hands, or anyone who simply prefers the smaller size. But although it can run the same apps and even multitask as any other iPad can, the smaller screen makes it harder for most people to get work done on the iPad mini. Most people wouldn’t notice the faster processor and graphics performance compared with the 10.2-inch iPad, though you might appreciate that difference in a couple of years as games and apps get more demanding.
