Redefining Norms: Bonds, Adobe Innovations, and Windows 11’s Hidden Gem
In finance, bonds have historically been seen as safe havens, offering predictable returns with considerably lower risk compared to equities or other investment vehicles. However, recent market dynamics are reshaping this traditional perspective. A striking example is the 100-year Austrian government bond, which experienced a staggering 75% decline in value in less than three years. Such volatile price swings are reminiscent of the cryptocurrency markets, notorious for their wild fluctuations and speculative trading.
This unexpected parallel between the conservative bond market and the dynamic crypto world suggests a broader transformation in global financial markets, where established norms are being challenged and conventional risk assessments might need reconsideration.
If you are in crypto and you are loosing money, don’t panic, you could be in Bonds and you could be loosing more. Just keep calm and wait for the bull run.
Meanwhile in the AI front…
Adobe has once again set the bar high with their recent update to Firefly 3. The progress they’ve showcased is nothing short of remarkable! They’ve truly pulled out all the stops, rapidly reaching the 80% mark where they can now cater to a vast majority of applications with outstanding quality. The strides Adobe is making in this domain hint at a promising future for design and creative innovations.
And now take a look into the new V3:
COPILOT IS IN THE HOUSE
In late September, the tech world eagerly awaited the release of Windows 11’s ‘Moment 4’ update, which promised the much-anticipated activation of Copilot within Microsoft’s operating system. However, the excitement quickly turned to disappointment for users in Spain and across Europe when they discovered that due to stringent data protection legislation, this feature was not available post-update. Microsoft responded by stating European users would have to await future updates until compliance with the EU’s data protection rules was achieved. But, interestingly, even though the feature isn’t active, Copilot is present within the system, just hidden. A simple command can bring it to light, enabling its use despite its ‘restricted’ status.
Microsoft has set a target to fully comply with the EU’s DMA by March 2024, meaning direct access to Copilot might be on hold until early 2024. Some users might notice the Copilot shortcut in ‘Moment 4’, but it merely opens a window in Edge. However, for those in Spain, there’s a workaround to use Copilot in Windows 11 in split-screen mode. By pressing Windows + R and entering a specific command, users can interact with Copilot, which, in its preview form, can perform tasks on the operating system and active windows. It also incorporates the latest features from DALL-E 3 for image generation and analysis. The only catch is that this method doesn’t allow Copilot to be pinned to the toolbar, so users will need to re-enter the command each time they wish to access it. Despite the inconvenience, this workaround offers a sneak peek into the AI’s capabilities before its official launch in the region.
