HTTP (Hypertext transfer protocol) is generally considered useful while navigating the web and the assumption is true to a certain extent. But it’s equally true that this is an insecure system prone to intrusion by hackers and other notorious elements. To tackle this problem, Google has decided to come up with a radical solution. It is asking all HTTP websites to declare themselves unsafe so that developers use the secure and encrypted HTTPS. By promoting this endeavor, Google wishes to showcase to web users in general that HTTP is not a safe way to browse the internet. Google’s proposal, if implemented, will bring a radical change in the way the internet is used. Three site classifications: a) Secure or fully functional HTTPS systems; b) Dubious or functional HTTPS with authentication errors; and c) Non-secure or standard HTTP and HTTPS with outdated protocols will be the order of the day.

What Is Main Ideology Behind Google’s Push For HTTPS

US-based tech giant Google has recently announced changes in its search ranking algorithm. In a latest, they will now be considering whether a website has the HTTPS or not. Is this a signal to switch the site to HTTPS or is it just a political jousting without any relation to search? HTTPS is Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure and it is the extension of the popular HTTP that we see on all web addresses. The code helps to transfer web pages across the web. The S in the HTTPS adds a security layer by encrypting the data. Google has been pushing hard for the last several years for improvement in on-site security. A precursor to this move was seen a few years ago when the company started encrypting search referral terms for logged-in users.

UHD TVs, UltraHD TVs, Netflix 4K videos, 4K resolution, HEVC, Panasonic UHD TVs

 A tip-off from Fox News has led to the discovery that not all Ultra High Definition Televisions (UHD TVs) can run Netflix 4K videos. These UltraHD TVs come with built-in HEVC decoders and therefore are expected to play all videos with 4K resolution. High Efficiency Video Coding or HEVC, formerly called H.265, is a video compression standard, used to send 4K videos that occupy too much of space, via existing broadband networks with low speed of 15 to 16 Mbps. The revelation included UHD TV sets made by some of the biggest television makers including LG Electronics, Samsung and Sony, which could play 4K videos such as “Smurfs 2” and “Ghostbusters” without a hitch. However, the stumble turned out on Panasonic’s TC-58AX800U, which couldn’t stream Netflix content with 4K resolution.      Netflix passes on its own certification program to TV set makers so that they receive Netflix 4K videos.
