Google has finally decided to get rid of one of the most annoying things on the internet, the CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to tell Computers and Humans Apart). You no longer have to squint to answer CAPTCHA to get to your email account or other sites.
CAPTCHAs which is a test to confirm the user is human has been implemented by webmasters
to prevent cyber attacks in which bots overload a website with traffic. Others such as Ticketmaster have used it to prevent ticket tout software.
Google bought reCAPTCHA which is one of the biggest providers of CAPTCHAs in 2009. In 2014 it introduced the No CAPTCHA, a little check box that knows you're not a robot based on how you tick the box. Robots, for example, are more likely to click right in the middle of the box.
Google will now be implementing "Invisible reCAPTCHA", there will no longer be a box to tick. What it do is monitor how the internet user interacted with a website like how they clicked the "submit form" button, or how they have moved the mouse around, as well as past data Google has on that user. It simply analyzes the user's “browsing behavior”.
Invisible Captcha will be done automatically which will make surfing the internet more streamlined and convenient than it used to be.

T-Mobile's free pizza is back, they ran the promo before with Domino's now they are partnering with Papa John's Pizza chain. The telecommunication company will try to give away thousands of free pizzas through its rewards program next week.
According to T-Mobile they will give customers a free pie with one topping one Tuesday over the next four weeks. Pizza was "by far" the most popular giveaway ever when the company's Tuesday rewards program was introduced last June, then with Domino's as a partner, T-Mobile said.
Last year's promo though it's very popular has garnered a lot of complaint because it could only be picked up on Tuesday each week, and Domino's was overwhelmed, causing delays and customer frustration. The chain quickly dropped out of the T-Mobile program, which expanded giveaways for many other items including movie tickets, milkshakes and gasoline.
I hope they will be fixed this time around. The new T-Mobile's Free Pizza Promotion will be available any day of the week as long as a customer claims it on a Tuesday via T-Mobile's rewards app. Customers will also get 25% off other online orders at Papa John's that they make along with the free pizza request and for the three weeks they don't claim a free pie.
The T-Mobile Tuesdays app is free to download in the App Store and Google Play.

According to Google Chrome page reloading will now be faster with one small tweak. By doing a simple tweak in their browser the reloading is 28% faster in the latest version of Chrome.
On a blog post last Thursday, Google Software Engineer Takashi Toyoshima said that a "relatively minor" browser tweak has resulted to faster page loading. Reload is an important feature of web browsers; it's typically used when a page is broken or to refresh content. Everytime you click to refresh a page, the browser communicates with the web server to see if there are cached resources are still usable, which is called validation. The result is “hundreds of network requests per page issued to dozens of domains,” he said. When refreshing a page on a mobile device, users may experience “serious performance issues” due to the “transient nature of mobile connections.”
"The existing reload behavior usually solves broken pages, but stale content is inefficiently addressed by a regular reload, especially on mobile," Toyoshima wrote.
"To improve the stale content use case, Chrome now has a simplified reload behavior to only validate the main resource and continue with a regular page load," Toyoshima wrote. "This new behavior maximizes the reuse of cached resources and results in lower latency, power consumption, and data usage." The changes result in 60 percent fewer validation requests, speeding up reloads.
To check out the difference, watch the video below.
