First bank transfer code - USSD*894# Quick Banking

Transfer of funds from one account to the other has never been simple until the introduction of Internet banking which paved the way for other related services that grants 24 /7 access to banking services online (First bank transfer code) to carry out banking transactions without visiting the bank.
                                          First bank transfer code                                                  
894 is a quick, convenient, secure and easy way to perform your banking transactions (transfer money, check balance, buy airtime, pay bills and lots more) anytime and anywhere, using any type of phone without need for internet connectivity or data.

Once you have a FirstBank account with a linked debit card, a phone number profiled for SMS alert and a mobile phone, you are just one dial away from enjoying the unbeatable 894 experience.

Banking transactions can now be performed on the go irrespective of location or time as there is no worry of internet connectivity or a token device, but only a Personal Identification Number (PIN). To send money, simply dial *894*Amount*Account Number#; select beneficiary bank; confirm amount, beneficiary name and enter five-digit PIN; then select account to debit. For airtime recharge: simply dial *894*Amount# to recharge for self; to recharge for others, dial *894*Amount*Phone Number# and enter five-digit PIN. FirstBank customers can transfer up to N100,000.00 per day and recharge airtime up to N10,000.00 per day. To generate account mini statement, dial *894*Account Number#, and to check account balance, the magic code is *894*00#.

How to transfer money - First bank to First Bank and other Banks without Internet

First Bank transfer code

Ensure you have enough Balance in your account to make the transfer and dial *894*amount*Account number# and select Destination bank to send money.
The account name you're transferring money to will be displayed for verification purpose.
You will be required to enter your 4 Digit ATM Card PIN if this is your first transaction and also create a 5-digit code that will be used to complete transfers.
NOTE: The code must be dialed from the Phone number linked with your First bank Account. (The number you receive transaction SMS alerts on)

The first bank USSD Transfer option is now as easy as other banks transfer codes I've used.
Users of First bank who don't use a smartphone, don't data or can't go to the bank especially on weekends like this, you have no option than to use the First Bank USSD code for transfers.

Alternatively, you can choose to download the First Bank Mobile Application, get registered by entering your ATM Card details to link your account with the App but transfers will require that you obtain a hardware from first bank branch or use soft-token (SMS codes) which sets a 200,000 limit on daily transactions.

So, enjoy Quick Banking with USSD FirstBank transfer Code *894#

How Android got big

How Android got Popular

Android is now the world’s most dominant operating system and that Google invested in buying and developing Android primarily because it wanted to ensure that Microsoft didn’t take that crown.
                                                              
How Android got Popular
How did Android become so dominant? Like any big trend with a multitude of causes, there’s no one answer to that question. But in this week’s Processor, Let us examine one of those causes.

Verizon.

By arguing that Verizon is one of the reasons that Android is now huge, I want to be clear that I don’t believe that its support was a sufficient (or perhaps even necessary) condition for Android’s success. Rather, the carrier ended up acting like a sort of kingmaker.

VERIZON NEEDED AN “IPHONE KILLER"

Back in 2009, smartphone competition looked very different than it does today. The iPhone had shaken up the entire industry, but in the US, it was still exclusive to AT&T. Verizon — which had turned down the chance at that exclusivity — was casting about for some kind of consolation-prize phone for its customers. There was a lot of talk about the “iPhone killer” that seems ridiculous now, but it wasn’t quite so ridiculous then.

And though this is mainly a story about the US side of the smartphone battle, I think it’s fair to say that the US was ground zero for it in 2009. It’s absolutely fair to say that nobody had more power to tip the scales in that fight in the US than the carriers.

In addition to Android and the iPhone, there was competition from Symbian, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and whatever was still left of Palm OS. Each of those platforms had advantages and disadvantages, but those last four were built on old and increasingly rickety foundations.

Verizon learned that the hard way when it bet on the atrocious BlackBerry Storm in 2008, which had the “innovation” of making the entire screen a physical button, so you had to literally click down on the screen to type. By 2009, Verizon needed to try something else.

There were two options on the table. One was the Palm Pre Plus, the second iteration of the webOS phone that fixed some of the problems of the original. As we reported back in 2012, Verizon had put in a big order and promised a big marketing blitz for the Pre Plus.
I can’t really say how much Verizon actually thought the Pre Plus could be the “iPhone killer,” or if Verizon was simply using it as leverage for its other big bet. That big bet, of course, was Google, Android, and the Motorola Droid.

You probably know what happened next. Verizon pushed all its chips behind the Motorola Droid — 100 million of them, to be precise, which was also the dollar amount of the marketing campaign it put behind the Droid. That money came in addition to whatever it cost to license the word “droid” from George Lucas.

The ads from that campaign were completely unavoidable in the run-up to and release of the Motorola Droid. It was so huge that it set the Droid up as Verizon’s iPhone alternative. But it did more than that: it positioned Android as the de facto “other” smartphone to the iPhone.

It doesn’t hurt that the Droid was a good phone, better in several ways than the Palm Pre Plus. But, again, big trends have multiple causes, and just making the better phone isn’t necessarily a sufficient condition for success. It also doesn’t hurt that it had the support of Google, which participated so much in its development that I’ve heard Googlers refer to it as the unofficial first Nexus phone. Palm was left to release its phone later and with much less marketing support. And to be honest, it never really recovered after that.

Anyway, I can’t bring up that ad campaign without pointing out that it was incredibly sexist. Kara Swisher, as usual, put it best in her article from 2009: “Is the New Droid Ad Anti-Women and Anti-Gay or Just Plain Idiotic? Actually, All Three!”

Verizon’s misogynistic ad campaign caused a lot of toxicity in the discourse around smartphones. It not only encouraged people to make what smartphone they chose a part of their personal identity, but it did so in a way that encouraged them to denigrate people who made other choices. Google’s more recent “Be together, not the same” campaign was a nice counter to that trend. But in many ways, the damage to the culture surrounding smartphone communities had already been done.

I don’t want to mourn the alternate world that could have come to pass — even though I do think the smartphone market was a lot more vibrant when there were more viable competitors out there. I just want to point out that a thing’s popularity isn’t tied simply to its quality. Especially in the US, phones don’t just succeed or fail based on their own merits. There are always bigger forces with their own motivations putting their fingers on the scales.

Verizon and the Droid didn’t make Android what it is today, but it’s also true that Android wouldn’t be what it is today without them.

Forget 4K TVs — 8K televisions are already here

Though 4K TVs remain short on Ultra High Definition 4K content outside of some streaming services and Blu-ray discs, three of the biggest television manufacturers are pushing the limits of screen resolution even higher by introducing their own 8K sets.
                                                 
8K screen viewed from just 7 feet away is going to look sharper than a 4K TV
“The time has come for us to champion the next era in screen resolution,” Samsung U.K. TV marketing director Guy Kinnell said at that firm’s press conference Thursday morning at the IFA tech trade show here. “Viewers can see what they’ve never seen on a TV before.”

But the 8K sets introduced by Samsung, LG and TCL—each offering 33,177,600 pixels instead of the 8,294,400 pixels found on 4K TVs—don’t deserve your dollars. They offer exponentially less stuff to watch in their native resolutions, the extra pixels are noticeable by the human eye at most viewing distances, and they use more power.

“8K is overkill,” said Mark Vena, senior analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. In this case, more is not better. It only equals more money gone from your bank account.

Samsung, LG and TCL’s 8K debuts

Samsung put the biggest emphasis on 8K at IFA, showing off 65-inch, 75-inch, 82-inch and 85-inch sets without announcing prices or shipping dates. Those details won’t come until October.

At its press conference, the Korean firm pitched 8K as a logical answer to a steady increase in screen sizes and suggested that its software’s ability to upconvert 4K footage would solve the problem of having nothing to watch in 8K.

At Samsung’s exhibit, a highlight reel showed clips originally produced in standard definition, high-def and 4K, alongside 8K-enhanced versions of each. The 4K clips enhanced to 8K showed the least difference, especially from more than a few feet away, while HD video shown in 8K looked meaningfully sharper. But an SD clip of two TV anchors enhanced to 8K left the announcers looking disturbingly plastic.

LG only announced one 8K set, an 88-inch OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TV. OLED screens offer better contrast ratios and are much thinner than the LED-backlit LCDs that dominate the market, but also cost a lot more.

Is my 4K TV about to become obsolete?

No. 1080p TVs aren’t obsolete, though I would argue they are inferior to today’s 4K HDR TVs. 8K resolution is an incremental upgrade over 4K, and valuable only at large screen sizes. Keep in mind that HDR is what really makes today’s TVs pop, and it is only in 65-inch screen sizes and above that 4K resolution is all that meaningful. Still, good luck buying a 1080p TV in any screen size over 40-inches. 4K is just the new standard now, and look, we’re all doing just fine, even if it is harder for some folks to get 4K content.

University researchers create app to extend Android battery life by up to 25 percent

Researchers at the University of Waterloo have figured out a way for Android multitaskers to get 25 percent more time out of a battery charge, though the particular scenario that takes advantage of this isn't a common one. And as Engadget reports, this battery saving has a few caveats.
                                                extend Android battery life by up to 25 percent
If you're one of the chosen few to have Android 9 Pie running on your phone right now, then you have split-screen support, which is where Waterloo's "MultiDroid" app comes into play, although it has yet to be released to the public. In a nutshell, the app works by dimming the side of the screen that you're not interacting with at that moment.

As any mobile geek can tell you, simply having the screen on will be one of the biggest drains on your battery, second only to rendering 3D or VR, which remains challenging even for desktop and laptop PCs. According to the university, being able to selectively dim areas of the screen can extend your battery charge by 10 to 25 percent.

Note: This battery-saving technique only works with OLED screens, which are customarily reserved for expensive phone models.

Interested readers can check out the university's full report at the IEEE Access website.

But what are the odds that you'll get Android Pie?

While Android 9 is currently only available on Google's Pixel phones and the Essential PH-1, dozens of other devices are scheduled to be updated. Motorola currently leads the pack with eight, Sony is purportedly readying six phones, and Samsung has committed to Pie updates for its high-end models like the Galaxy S9 and Note 9.

Despite Google's recent inroads with Motorola and Sony, it continues to struggle overall with getting manufacturers and mobile network carriers to update older phones and launch new devices with the latest version of their operating system.

Android Oreo took eight months to come to the Galaxy Note 8, and one year to come to the Galaxy S8. Samsung has not committed to release dates for Android Pie updates on any of their devices. The Galaxy Note 9 came out earlier this month sporting 8.1 Oreo, just as 9.0 Pie was reaching store shelves.

According to Google's own statistics, only 12 percent of their phones are running Android Oreo, which came out last year; 30 percent of phones are still on the version before that, and 24 percent are still on Marshmallow, which was released to the general public nearly three years ago.

For reference, Apple states that over 80 percent of its users are on iOS 11, and only 14 percent remain on iOS 10. (iOS 12 is currently available in a public beta; a final version is expected next month.) Granted, Apple has far fewer devices to deal with, and it makes a lot of its own chips, so it's much less reliant on third parties for software updates. But the contrast remains stark.

In Summary:
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have designed an app that can extend your battery charge by up to 25 percent, although it currently only works with Android Pie and OLED screens.
Only a small handful of phones are currently running Android Pie, as Google continues to struggle with getting manufacturers and mobile network carriers to update older phones and launch new devices with the latest version of their operating system.

WhatsApp to Offer Unlimited Back-up Storage With Google Drive

Starting November 12, 2018, WhatsApp backups will no longer count towards the Google Drive storage quota. Furthermore, WhatsApp backups that haven't been updated in more than one year will be automatically removed from Google Drive storage. Also, all WhatsApp backups that haven’t been updated in more than one year will be automatically removed from Google Drive storage, so make sure you manually back up your WhatsApp data by November 12 if you don’t want to lose it.
                                            WhatsApp to Offer Unlimited Back-up Storage
You can back up your chats and media to Google Drive, so if you change Android phones or get a new one, your chats and media are transferable. We recommend connecting your phone to Wi-Fi prior to backing up your chats via Google Drive, as backup files can vary in size and consume mobile data, causing additional charges.

Minimum requirements

In order to use Google Drive backup, you need to have:

A Google account activated on your phone
Google Play services installed on your phone
Note: Google Play services are only available for Android 2.3.4 and higher.
Enough free space on your phone to create the backup

Creating a Google Drive backup

How to create a Google Drive backup:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Back up to Google Drive and select a backup frequency other than Never.
Select a Google account that you'll back up your chat history to. If you don't have a Google account, tap Add account when prompted and enter your login credentials. Please remember the Google account you're using for the backup.
Tap Back up over to choose the network you wish to use for backup. Please note that backing up over a cellular data network might result in additional data charges.
You can also manually back up your chats to Google Drive at any time:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap BACK UP to begin your Google Drive backup. This process might take a few minutes.
Note: Depending on the size of the chat, the first complete backup could take a while. We recommend that you connect your phone to a power source. However, subsequent backups are incremental, thus not requiring a completely new backup of all your data every time.

Important: Media and messages you back up aren't protected by WhatsApp end-to-end encryption while in Google Drive.


Restoring from a Google Drive backup

In order to successfully restore a Google Drive backup, you need to use the same phone number and Google account used to create the backup. To restore your backup:

Make sure the same Google account that was used to perform the backup has been added to your phone.
Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp.
After verifying your phone number, you'll be prompted to restore your chats and media from Google Drive. Tap RESTORE.
After the restoration process is complete, tap NEXT and your chats will be displayed once initialization is complete.
After restoring your chats, WhatsApp will begin restoring your media files.
Note: If you're installing WhatsApp without any prior backups from Google Drive, WhatsApp will automatically restore from your local backup file. Learn more in our FAQ on restoring chat history.


Configuring your Google Drive backup settings

To change the frequency of your Google Drive backup:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Back up to Google Drive.
Set the backup frequency to your liking.
To change which account you want to back up your chat history to:
Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Account and select the account you wish to back up your chat history to.
Note: If you change your Google account, you won't be able to access your backups that are linked to a different Google account.

To change the connection you wish to use for backup:

Open WhatsApp.
Tap Menu > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
Tap Back up over and select the network you wish to use for backup.

Deleting your backup file from your Google account
You can remove WhatsApp data from your Google Drive. To do so:


Go to the Google Drive website and log in to your Google account.

If you're accessing the Google Drive website from your phone, you'll have to tap the Menu icon in the top left corner and then tap Desktop Version.
Click the Gear icon in the top right corner > Settings > Manage Apps.
Scroll until you find WhatsApp in the list. Please note it might take several minutes for WhatsApp to appear.
After you find WhatsApp in the list, wait until “Hidden app data” size comes up. This might also take several minutes.
Click OPTIONS > Delete hidden app data > DELETE.

Over 90GB worth of files accessed by Australian teenager who hacked Apple’s network multiple times

Court documents reveal that a 16-year-old hacker from Australia allegedly broke into tech giant Apple’s computer systems and may have downloaded internal files.
                                                 90GB worth of files accessed by Australian teenager
The Age newspaper reports that the teenager’s actions were motivated by an admiration for the company, and that the boy kept the stolen files in a folder entitled “hacky hack hack.” The teen reportedly downloaded over 95 gigabytes of data and accessed customer accounts without exposing his identity.

The Australian Federal Police searched the teen’s home last year, the court documents state, which produced two laptops, a mobile phone and a hard drive that matched the intrusion reported by Apple. The reports also reveal that the boy boasted about his activities on the encrypted messaging app, WhatsApp.

“Two Apple laptops were seized and the serial numbers matched the serial numbers of the devices which accessed the internal systems,” a prosecutor said. “A mobile phone and hard drive were also seized and the IP address … matched the intrusions into the organisation. The purpose was to connect remotely to the company’s internal systems.”

The Age goes on to report that the investigation began when Apple became aware of the intrusion and contacted the FBI, who passed the case over to the Australian Federal Police.

Apple spoke out Friday to reassure users that no customer data was compromised in the breach.

“At Apple, we vigilantly protect our networks and have dedicated teams of information security professionals that work to detect and respond to threats,” a company spokesman told Guardian Australia in a statement.

“In this case, our teams discovered the unauthorized access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement. We regard the data security of our users as one of our greatest responsibilities and want to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised.”

The teenager later told police that he’d dreamed of one day becoming an Apple employee. The boy’s defence attorney said at one point that his client had become so well known in the international hacking community that exposing the details of the case could expose him to risk.

Dr. Suelette Dreyfus, a privacy expert with the University of Melbourne, told Guardian Australia that a punitive sentence would be “a waste of that potential.”

“I have researched a number of teen hacker cases internationally. Almost all these teens grew out of the technology boundary-pushing of their youth, and then went on to live useful lives and contributing to society. Putting them in prison is often a waste of that potential.

“Young people often make mistakes when they are exploring and rule-breaking especially online – including boasting about their exploits. It’s not right, but for tech teens, it can be a part of growing up … there’s usually a really worried teen and family at the end of this sort of court case,” Dreyfus explained.

The boy, whose name could not be made public because he is a juvenile offender, will be sentenced on Sept. 20.

Apple recently became the world’s most valuable company, valued at over $1 trillion.

Data Science Nigeria (DSN) will unveil the phase 1 of its Data Science Community Centre and Artificial Intelligence Hub for cross-industry and academic research, on the campus of the University of Lagos. The Hub will officially be launched on Friday, the 8th of June, at 11 a.m. on the university campus with the Vice Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin Temitayo Ogundipe and Dr. Uyi Stewart, Director, Global Development Strategy, Data & Analytics,  Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle, USA, in attendance.

This is in furtherance of DSN’s drive for accelerated applications of artificial intelligence to solve social and business problems through a strategic partnership between the academic community, industry, and local and international technology hubs similar to the highly successful Stanford University-Silicon Valley model. DSN is committed to supporting Nigerian students and encouraging them to turn their academic research into innovative start-ups or social enterprises aligned with millennial developmental goals. DSN has a particular interest in solving local problems in the fields of health, education, agriculture and financial inclusion.

The Hub will be the community centre for data science enthusiasts and experts to fraternize, learn, share ideas and participate in local and international projects. DSN also plans to use the Hub for face-to-face masterclasses, industry meet-ups, and dial-in conferences with its over 100+ mentors from across the globe. Data science practitioners can also participate in many industry data projects as interns, freelancers or experts at the Hub.

The Hub features modern data collection tools including biometric readers, an AWS AI DeepLens Camera, Google Clips, Intel Movidius Neural Stick, GPS tracking devices, Bionic Nature Observing Device, Internet-of-Things suite and many others.
The Hub’s unveiling ceremony will also include the announcement of its highly successful learning bootcamp/hackathon, titled, Deep Learning Nigeria, to be held October 10-15, 2018. This will be a fully residential, all-expense-paid learning camp focused on deepening financial inclusion through the use of machine/deep learning for credit risk scoring, identity image/voice authentication, ATM point-of-presence location optimization using geospatial data, and biometrics/voice analytics.

This will be complemented with a first-of-its-kind Inter-Campus Machine Learning Competition to recruit the best 75 students for a Data Science bootcamp, with opportunity to win 1 million Nigerian naira through participation in Kaggle competitions and bootcamp quizzes.
