OMG !! Android Is No Longer Free

We all know very well that Android is the most widely used mobile operating system on the market, hence, it is subject to scrutiny and constant assessment by regulators from the countries where it is present. However, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Google warned that Android is no longer free simply because of the fine imposed by the EU commission.

Google: Android Is No Longer Free

The tech giant Google has been under fire in Europe, which has forced some profound changes in its services and the way it manages user data.

These are changes that the European Union is obliging as a result of the investigations and fines it has imposed on the tech giant Google. Hence, as a result, the tech giant Google has now announced that in Europe, Android manufacturers will start paying the tech giant Google for the use of their applications.

This is a radical change from the tech giant Google, but it is following the last fine that the tech giant Google was targeting in Europe. This record fine of 4.3 billion euros was accompanied by a set of obligations, which aim to end the support domain of the tech giant Google’s apps within Android.
From that time it will be possible that the tech giant Google would charge for the use of Android, something that is now known that will not happen.

What will change is the availability of Google apps, especially Search and Chrome, which have an associated value to use. This value will be charged to manufacturers and will only be charged to the European Economic Area.
As the tech giant Google is concerned that Android will continue to be free and will not charge anything for its use, just being charged the installation of its apps and the Play Store. However, the amount that will be charged by the tech giant Google has not been revealed yet.

Thus, manufacturers have the possibility to create devices based on Android, but that will use other stores of apps or those of Google, knowing, however, that for the latter there will be an associated value.

This is the way that the tech giant Google has found to be able to comply with the European Union’s demands and thus to end the (supposed) monopoly that it is generating.

This new rule will take effect on October 29 and, for now, it is not known the amount that the tech giant Google will charge each manufacturer as we told earlier.

A representative of the European Commission has already commented on this decision and said that the tech giant Google is not required to charge for the use of its services and that it would only have to allow manufacturers to use Android without their apps and services.
For manufacturers, and as expected, it’s simpler to build equipment with other stores and other apps, rather than being forced to use those from the tech giant Google, something that was an imposition so far. So, what do you think about this? Simply share all your views and thoughts in the comment section below.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia

Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
