A dockless electric bike


Lime has introduced its first dockless electric bikes hire service in UK. The company said its motor-assisted bikes would be accessible for people of any age or fitness level. They can be unlocked for £1, ridden for 15p per minute, then parked anywhere "responsibly" after use. They are located and paid for via a free app and feature motors to make cycling easier. Lime claims it is the first such service in the UK. About 100 bikes will be available in the Buckinghamshire town initially, with numbers expected to increase in the first few weeks.

Windows 10 update becomes a headache

Windows 2018 update keeps on being a headache for Microsoft. After installing the update, Microsoft notes that users may not be able to use the Seek Bar in Windows Media Player when playing specific files. The other issue sounds a bit more frustrating, preventing some users from setting Win32 program defaults for certain app and file types. In some cases, simply trying to set application defaults again will work however a genuine fix won't be prepared until late 2018.

Google translate with a makeover

Google has been rolling out material theme designs for a lot of Google apps in recent time and it seems that the material look has finally reached Google translate. The update was earlier spotted and is currently taking off on a massive scale for Google translate on web. The new Google Translate site has a similar design with two fields for dialect input and output. There is also now an option available to switch between entering ‘Text’ and uploading ‘Documents’ underneath the app bar. This new update is focused more on revamping of the layout of the web version of Google translate while also adding new functionality. The new functionality makes it much easier to organise and save translations that have been used or searched for.
