Suggested December 2023 Google Knol”Edge”, Wikipedia And Trias Politica
Yesterday Brook Schaaf from Schaaf Consulting reported at chúng tôi about an article about the subject at the Times Online that was published also yesterday.
Based on the article at the UK news paper, did Nielson Online estimate Wikipedia’s traffic for October to be 107 Million people compared to over 260 million people who visited Google that same month. Wikipedia pages also rank very well in Google, too well actually, which causes some displeasure among search engine marketers, which is actually well founded. It is understandable that Google would like to get a piece of this for themselves.
But Knol is not like a Wiki that is open for anybody to edit. The Times Online states, quote:
“Contributors will retain the copyright to their submissions.”
The Times Online cites Jimbo Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia, who questioned the quality that “Knol” will be able to produce, quote:
“(He) suggested that knol articles would lack balance. “They are not going to allow collaboration and aren’t going to go for Wikipedia’s neutral style” “
Brook Schaaf also stated:
“This description made it sound sort of like Squidoo to Me.”
That is a comparison which is actually pretty accurate. Seth Godin’s brain child allows people to create articles for a keyword and benefit from the earnings, which is shared between Squidoo and the content creator. Danny Sullivan from Search Engine Land also reported about Knol and its resemblance to Squidoo and also points out the spam problem Squidoo had in the past, which caused the site to get penalized by Google.
Google did already steps into content creation in the past with tools like Google Pages and the blogging platform Blogger. Danny Sullivan states about that issue
“Is this Google going a step too far? Google abandoned its search roots long ago, the idea that it was just a pointer to other information.”
Google will be the manufacturer, distributor and retailer of their own goods. No problem, unless you have a market share like the top 15-20 grocery retailers combined. Google seems aiming to become the equivalent of the legislative, Judiciary and executive branches of a state, as defined by the “Trias Politica“, all-in-one. This will not only cause potentially some legal troubles and pressure from the FTC, but also a loss of trust by users of the search engines. Google should either organize the worlds information or produce them and don’t try to monetize them on top of all that.
What are your thoughts to this development? Do you like the idea of Knol? Why? If you don’t, please share your concerns with me and the other readers of Search Engine Journal.

Update, March 2023: We’ve added new alternatives and information on recent software updates.
Motorola Edge (6GB/128GB) — T-Mobile: $498
Motorola Edge (8GB/256GB) — Unlocked: $599 ($499 at launch)
Ryan Haines / Android Authority
One of our main expectations for any Motorola device is a clean, straightforward software experience. The Motorola Edge delivers in spades, bringing My UX to the forefront with plenty of customization options. It delivers almost no Motorola bloatware, instead opting for Google’s version of just about everything. There were a few extra T-Mobile apps and a copy of Facebook on our review unit, but they’re easy enough to uninstall.
Along with My UX, the Edge places a significant emphasis on Motorola’s Ready For app, which trickles down from the top-tier Edge Plus. It’s essentially the company’s version of Samsung Dex, allowing you to turn your computer or TV into a base for your phone. From there, you can either cast games and pair them with an Xbox controller for easy access or opt for a full desktop experience. With the latter, the Edge becomes your trackpad and keyboard, and you can navigate through everything else as if you had a laptop on hand.
Motorola’s new commitment to the future is perhaps more important than the software itself. We’ve lamented the brand’s weak software support in the past, but the Motorola Edge now comes with the promise of three Android versions and four years of software updates. It’s still not a Samsung-level of dedication, but it gives the Edge some extra longevity and puts it in line with competing brands like OnePlus. Android 13 will be the first update, but you’ll still get support through Android 15 into 2026.
The Motorola Edge’s Dimensity 1050 chipset is plenty capable, at least compared to most mid-range systems on the market. I didn’t notice any struggles or lag through my day-to-day use, and streaming or scrolling through social media felt especially light. When you turn your attention to the benchmarks, it even breezes past Motorola’s affordable 5G options like the Moto G Stylus 5G and Moto G 5G. The Galaxy A53 5G tells a similar tale. However, those mid-rangers are far from the most powerful contenders in the Edge’s price bracket.
If you get it for $499 right off the bat at launch, you’ll probably be happy with how the Edge compares to phones around that price. However, if you’re paying the full $599 MSRP for the unlocked model and expect it to keep up with the likes of the Pixel 7 or Pixel 6a, the iPhone SE, or even the nearby OnePlus 11, you might come away disappointed. Google’s phones top the Edge on both the Geekbench 5 and 3DMark score — with even the cheaper Pixel 6a roughly doubling the latter number. The gap is even bigger when set against the OnePlus 11 (priced just $100 higher), which trounces the Edge in default mode, though you can also turn on an optional performance mode to leave Motorola further in the dust.
As you can see throughout the samples above, the Motorola Edge’s primary camera is more than up to the task in most scenarios. It replicates color nicely, and light digital zoom doesn’t come at the cost of too many details. The clouds are slightly blown out in the scene with the “Open” flag, but they’re more accurately depicted floating above the light blue sign.
Motorola’s portrait mode is good overall, though it doesn’t always detect the edges of non-human objects. For example, I focused on the lamp post in the center image, but the Edge only blurred the far background. The image of the teacup flowers is a better result, though it’s likely thanks to the greater distance from the subject to the background. I have no real complaints about the macro camera, either, as it captured plenty of detail in the yellow flowers and feels far more flexible than a dedicated shooter would have.
The Motorola Edge (2023) offers three buttons across the bottom of the viewfinder — macro, 0.5x, and 1x zoom. It clearly comes with the expectation that you’ll do a lot of zooming out rather than in, but I found it capable in either direction. The ultrawide camera generally retains details well, at least in the above four-image comparison. Comparing the chimineas with the slider, the ultrawide’s colors are noticeably muted, especially the reds. You can see some stretching and distortion around the edges, especially in the leaves closest to the corner around the yellow building and the furthest-left chiminea.
As you make your way through the focal range, I found that the Motorola Edge performed well most of the way, considering it doesn’t have dedicated zoom hardware. Both details and color are accurate enough for usable snaps at up to about 5x, even though the leaves in the background begin to get a bit muddy at that stage. The shingles and the cupola on the yellow building are much cleaner in comparison.
The Edge’s performance at night is about as varied as they come. If you find a scene that doesn’t rely on the automatic night mode, you can get some excellent results, as in the image on the left. It’s sharp and well exposed and stands in stark contrast to the images on the right. The small figurine appears flat and lifeless, and the colors aren’t enhanced close to the night mode capabilities of rivals. The small pavilion to the far right falls somewhere in the middle — it has a few muddied details, especially in the back, but it offers better color recreation overall.
The Edge lets its 32MP selfie camera stand as the only interruption to the 6.6-inch display, and it delivers acceptable images. It bins from the full resolution down to 8MP by default, and I didn’t have too many issues with the colors or clarity. The portrait shot is a bit punchier, especially on my shirt, but I won’t complain too much for one reason — no more beauty filtering. Motorola’s last few offerings have been plagued by heavy-handed processing that renders your face all but unrecognizable, but the Edge feels much more natural. Ironically, it could use some help in its edge detection. The selfie camera missed portions of my hair, which isn’t common on most other phones.
Unfortunately, video is still not the Edge’s strength, as the rear camera tops out with 4K at 30fps or 1080p at up to 60fps. It’s almost a given to have 4K at 60fps at this price point, so this is a big miss. The rear ultrawide camera can only handle 1080p at 30fps, but it jumps back to 60fps when set to macro mode.
No, the Motorola Edge (2023) has an IP52 rating against splashes and dust, but it is not fully waterproof.
Yes, the Motorola Edge (2023) supports 5G across sub-6GHz and mmWave bands, though the latter is Verizon only.
No, the Motorola Edge (2023) only has a single nano-SIM slot.
Yes, the Motorola Edge (2023) offers 15W Turbopower wireless charging (or non-proprietary Qi wireless charging) and 5W reverse wireless charging.
Update (July 9, 2023): Root is available for Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge too. This page has been updated accordingly.
Root has been achieved on Sprint Galaxy S6 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update finally, and all you need to do is flash a modified kernel using Odin PC software. This will set the KNOX flag in download mode from 0x0 to 0x1, meaning, your warranty will be void because of the tripping of KNOX. If you want to preserve warranty, you better stay away from this, at least for now.
Be sure to prepare the phone as said in the instructions below, because Odin won’t be flash until you allow it from phone. Yes, that’s new. Earlier, you could just flash anything using Odin, but now, you need enable the Odin flash. By the way, credit for the Sprint S6 Root goes to , djvoleur (lead) and g.lewarne (from international and T-Mobile S6 Root) for figuring the way out, and crating the custom kernel that simplifies it all for us mortal users!
By the way, this doesn’t works on Sprint S6 Edge, for which a custom kernel of its own should be available real soon. For now, DON’T TRY ON SPRINT S6 EDGE !!
Update (July 9, 2023): Root is available for Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge too. This page has been updated accordingly.
→ Now that UniKernel is available as root solution, it’s highly recommend that you use UniKernel to root your Sprint S6 and S6 Edge. While the old root kernel would most probably be still working, and there was nothing wrong with it either, but because UniKernel is latest and will be more updated, we’d go with UniKernel.
UniKernel Root kernel:
To download latest files available for installation, check the official page here: for Galaxy S6, and for Galaxy S6 Edge.
SPRINT GALAXY S6 & S6 EDGE, model no. SM-G920P and SM0G925P
Don’t try on any other device than S6 and S6 Edge set from T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, international, etc. or any other Android device whatsoever!
Warning: Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.
Backup necessary stuff. In case your device is wiped off while following the guide below, it’s good to have a backup of contacts, photos, videos and other files already saved on PC.
Here’s a video that will guide you to rooting Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge on Android 5.1 update. Device used in video is international Galaxy S6, SM-G925i, but the video applies for every Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge set out there. Oh, in case you were wondering how come we have 5.1 on G925i when Samsung didn’t release for it, well, there’s a page for that guides you to install 5.1 update on G925i Galaxy S6.
Disable Reactivation lock. This is very important! For this:
Enable OEM Unlocking. It’s important and you need this to be able to flash anything on you Sprint S6 using Odin software after Android 5.1.1 update. Do this:
Go back to settings, and tap on ‘Developer options’.
Now, find the ‘OEM unlocking’ option, and use its toggle button to enable it.
Boot your Sprint S6 into download mode:
Power off your Sprint S6. Wait 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
Press and hold the three buttons Volume Down + Power + Home together until you see warning screen.
Press Volume Up to continue to download mode of S6.
Extract the Odin file. You should get this file, Odin3 chúng tôi (other files could be hidden, hence not visible).
Connect your Sprint Galaxy S6 to PC now using USB cable. Odin should recognize your device. It’s a must. When it recognizes, you will see Added!! message appearing in the Log box in bottom left, and the first box under ID:COM will also show a no. and turn its background blue. Look at the pic below.
You cannot proceed until you get the Added!! message, which confirms that Odin has recognized your device.
If you don’t get Added!! message, you need to install/re-install drivers again, and use the original cable that came with device. Mostly, drivers are the problem (look at step 2 above).
If Odin gets stuck at setup connection, then you need to do steps 5 to 11 again. For this, close Odin, disconnect your device, reboot it to download mode and then start again.
You should have root access when device reboots. If you get nagging notifications about security issues, kernel being permissive or like, then to fix this, disable the SecurityLogAgent service on your device using, what else, root access. For this, install Titanium Backup, open the app and provide it root access, and then search for this on the all apps screen, then tap on it, and select Freeze. That will do the trick.
If you face any issues with root access, like apps force closing, then just reboot to recovery mode and wipe cache. Here’s how:
Power off your Sprint S6. Wait 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
Press and hold the three buttons Power + Home + Volume up together until you see Samsung’s logo. Then let go of the buttons. You will soon see TWRP recovery.
Move the selection highlight to wipe cache using volume buttons, and then tap on power button to select it. Once wiping off cache is done, select ‘reboot system now’ to restart the device. Shouldn’t face any force close now.
To confirm root access, download a root checker app from play store, and open it. Tap on Verify Root to confirm that our Sprint S6 is as root access, and SuperSU working fine.
If you need any help, do let us know about this.
With more memory and excellent battery life the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a powerful phone and a great choice if you want a large screen. However, it’s expensive, unwieldy and Samsung has dropped the IR blaster and hardly added anything to the edge screen. With the regular S6 available for less than £340 it’s a no brainer.
Samsung made a splash in the smartphone market with the curved screen Galaxy S6 Edge. Well there’s an even bigger model now so here’s our full Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review. Also see: Best new phones 2023 and Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, price and specs rumours.
The S6 Edge+ was announced in August at Samsung’s Unpacked 2023 event along with the Galaxy Note 5. This would normally be launched in September at IFA but it was seemingly brought forward to avoid a clash with the iPhone 6S – and other rivals in Berlin.Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review: Price and competition
The original Galaxy S6 Edge was one of the most expensive phones we’ve ever seen at launch price. Well the Edge+ beat it with Samsung initially selling it at £749.
For a while it was reduced to a cheaper price than the smaller Edge at £599 but it’s now £629 from the official Samsung store. That’s not too bad but it’s still one of the most expensive phones around. However, head over to Amazon and you can pick one up for just £519, a relative bargain.
That’s £100 cheaper than the iPhone 6S which comes with half the storage but you need to consider that the Galaxy S6 can be purchased for under £340 which can only be described as a bargain.

There’s not a great deal to say about the design and build of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ since it is really just a bigger version of the original model. It retains the same look and feel compromising of a rounded metal frame and glass on the front and back.
It’s one of the most stylish phones around but we haven’t found it as comfortable as the regular Galaxy S6 due to the slightly sharp metal running down either side in order to house the curved edges of the screen – this hasn’t changed much on the Edge+. It’s still thin at 6.9mm but the Edge+ model being even larger makes it all the more unwieldy.
Despite increasing the screen size, Samsung has managed to make the Edge+ 0.1mm thinner than the Edge. There’s a larger battery too and yet the phone is only around 20g heavier. This is some impressive engineering from Samsung.Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review: Hardware and specs
As alluded to, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is larger than the original model. If you thought a 5.1in screen was a bit small, the Note range is no longer your only option if you’re a Samsung devotee. The Edge+ features a 5.7in display which matches that of the new Galaxy Note 5 – it’s quickly becoming the standard size for larger phones with the new Nexus 6P also offering this screen size. Also see: 100 funny things to ask S Voice
The display still uses Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology and uses a Quad HD resolution (1440 x 2560). This does mean a drop in pixel density from 577- to 518ppi but we’re talking seriously high numbers here so it’s still awesomely crisp.
Also see: Best smartphones 2023.
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is one of a handful of phones announced with 4G of RAM which is plenty of memory – an extra 1GB compared to the Edge which power users may find helpful. On the storage front you might be sad to hear there’s still no Micro-SD card slot and the 128GB model has been dropped from the line-up, leaving just 32- and 64GB choices. As mentioned earlier, getting 32GB as standard is good when compared with devices like the iPhone 6S.
What’s even more impressive than the above numbers is the battery life on offer here. In our test the Galaxy S6 Edge+ lastest a whopping eight hours and 39 minutes with a score of 5192. The nearest contenter to date is the Honor 7 which managed just over seven hours.
The larger physical size means there’s room for a 3000mAh battery inside and the Edge+ also offers wireless charging which is something we always want to see from a high-end handset.
We didn’t think Samsung would drop any of its usual extra features so while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ has a fingerprint scanner in the home button and a heart rate monitor, the IR blaster has been dropped with the firm promoting new features such as ‘Live Broadcast’ although we don’t really see the need for this with apps like Periscope. There’s also 11ac Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX, GPS and 4G LTE support.
With such high-end specs on the existing Galaxy S6 models, it’s not really a shock that things haven’t changed for the Edge+. This means there are still top-notch cameras at 16Mp at the rear with optical image stabilisation (it still sticks out a few millimetres but is one of the best on any smartphone), a single LED flash and support for 4K video at 30fps. There’s also still a decent 5Mp camera at the front.
With so many specs remaining the same, the key difference is the screen size and battery life (although more memory is welcome and it’s a shame to see the IR blaster gone) here so Samsung is delivering for all of you out there with a craving for an S6 Edge in a larger model.Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review: Software
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ comes pre-loaded with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and Samsung’s own TouchWiz interface – as you would expect.
Unfortunately, not much has changed but you can position the tab with with to access the People Edge where is most comfortable on the edge. There’s also the added feature of accessing your most used apps with via the People Edge on top of contacts.
We were hoping for more.
There’s little in TouchWiz that’s stock Android, it’s really just the recent apps menu. Otherwise Samsung has opted for its own way of doing things. That’s fine for fans of the UI but others may be put off.
Bloatware is much less of an issue these days but the Edge+ comes with a number of apps which can’t be uninstalled. This includes a folder full of Microsoft apps and Samsung’s own such as S Health and S Voice.Specs Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+: Specs

Microsoft has been doing its best to take Edge mainstream. It has been pushing new features almost every month, and the latest batch could go a long way in establishing it as a worthy alternative to Google Chrome. The features are primarily related to passwords, about letting you keep them safe with the help of Microsoft Edge.
Today, we’ll check them out, in length, and tell you how you can use the newly-added tools — Password Health and Leaked Password — to make your passwords airtight. So, without further ado, let’s check out Edge’s password protection suite.

What does Password Health Mean?
When we sign up for a new service through a website or create an account, we are generally asked to put down our email ID and password. And while many websites urge us to put down a strong password — a combination of capitalization, numbers, special characters — many are reluctant to impose such a bottleneck. This makes the password “weaker,” leaving our account vulnerable to a sneak attack in the future.
A password that isn’t long, can be easily guessed and doesn’t include special characters, numbers, and capitalization is dubbed as a weak password. A strong password uses a combination of the aforementioned elements, which safeguards our accounts from threats. The whole ordeal of judging a password’s strength is done through Password Health. A healthy password is much difficult to crack than a standard weak/unhealthy password.

How to check password health in Microsoft Edge
You’ll see multiple sections on this screen. Scroll down until you see the ‘Saved password’ banner. On the right of the ‘Saved password’ banner, you’ll see a little toggle: ‘Show health.’ Make sure the toggle is turned on.
If a password is deemed healthy, Edge will give it three bars.
A weak password, on the other hand, would get a single bar.
Passwords with moderate health get two bars.

How to find if your passwords have leaked
Now, select the ‘Profiles’ tab on your left and select ‘Passwords’ on the right.
Finally, scroll down until you see the ‘Saved passwords’ section. Here, you’ll see all the passwords you have saved in Microsoft Edge so far. Now, look closely, and check if any password has a red exclamation mark on the right of it.
If it does, hover your mouse cursor over it and Edge would be quick to tell you that the password has been compromised

How to change leaked passwords
Seeing your password be compromised is pretty bad. However, rest assured that it’s completely fixable, especially if it doesn’t contain sensitive data. You can simply reset the password on the main website and go about your day. And most importantly, Microsoft Edge assists you on that front as well. It gives you access to the main website right next to the passwords, which makes it super easy to change them whenever you feel like it.
It will take you to the website whose password has been compromised. Find the option to change your profile password and then change it as suitable.
However, it is to be noted that Microsoft Edge might not always lead you to the appropriate website, especially when if it’s changed or removed. So, if the website migrates, you’ll need to look it up manually.
