Alerts and digital passports – the role of the smartphone in war

Published

Ukraine has launched a temporary digital document, for the period of wartime

In case of loss of documents due to destruction from war, people can now get temporary ones in the application.

The new service is called “e-Document” and will contain passport data.

Air raid alerts

Meanwhile, Android users in Ukraine will get air raid alerts directly on their phones before expected attacks happen near them.

Google is working with the Ukrainian Government to roll out the system for Android phones.

In a statement, the tech company says “millions of people in Ukraine now rely on air strike alerts to get to safety.”

The Android pings will be based on the alerts already being sent by the government.

It’s adapted from a system built for quickly sending warnings about other disasters like earthquakes or tsunamis.

The new alerts system begins rolling out today and will ramp up to all Android phones in the coming days.

It comes a week after Google suspended ad sales in Russia amid the ongoing violence.

By 2022, the ads were everywhere. Crypto was taking over the superbowl, and global sport.

Hollywood’s biggest names were jumping on board, and suddenly the big banking firms were taking notice.

The tokens might have been virtual, but crypto was become a real threat, and of real interest to next gen investors. #crypto #ftx #bitcoin

And how’s this for a journey.

On its anniversary, estimates suggest the vehicle has completed three and one quarter loops around the sun and is sitting 326 kilometres from Earth.

It’s also logged up more than 4 billion kilometres, mostly travelling through a barren vacuum.

In space terms, it did get close to Mars at one point – passing within 8 million ks of the planet – or about 20 times the distance between the Earth and the moon.

Although, it’s difficult to say where the vehicle is exactly with or whether it’s still even in one piece.

It is possible the roadster may have been hit by a meteoroid or eroded by radiation. #trending #fetured
