VIDEO: Man Claims He Travelled From The Year 6491 And Is Stuck In 2018

Published

A time traveller who believes he is from the year 6491 but got stuck in 2018 when his time machine broke down, has allegedly passed a lie detector test.

James Oliver’s story was doubted but paranormal experts say they were blown away when they put it to the test, because the results showed he was telling the truth.

Mr Oliver claims he lives more than centuries in the future but was sent back in time.

Paranormal YouTube site ApexTV carried out an experiment, which had bizarre results.

Mr Oliver passed every question.

‘Your years are different to mine,’ he says in an anonymous video which blurs out his face.

‘Where I’m from, the years are longer.

‘My planet is further away from the sun than yours is, so it takes longer to get around.

‘But we have gifted mathematicians who work to calculate our years from those from other civilisations.’

Describing life lightyears from now, he says more species and planets are discovered – and that there are fights coming between humans and aliens.

He said: ‘We are constantly finding new planets and galaxies every day. Most of it is just nothing.

‘Sometimes you hit the jackpot and find intelligent life on it. You find new planets, new eco systems.

‘There are a lot of planets more intelligent than humans.’

‘There have been some conflicts, but most of it has been put under control by the federation very quickly.

‘The federation is there as a peace keeping vessel.’

According to Mr Oliver global warming is going to get worse and our planet is going to get hotter. He also says there is a United Nations style system of planetary leaders to ensure peace.

And he says he is friends with people from other planets.

He said: ‘The definition of alien is something out of this world, so technically, I am meeting one right now.

‘I have, on occasion. But the only time I meet them is when I am at home.

‘It’s the same sort of thing. They travel to where I live and I do know them.

‘I have personal relationships with a few of them, I have friends I’d consider aliens. They are a nice lot, they are. Don’t be quick to judge.

‘I have some who are quite good friends. My closest friend is from another galaxy.’

Another surprise for the future is how we will all have our own Artificial Intelligence system called Siri – the same name as the Apple operating systems assistant.

He goes on to say that everyone in the future has their own Artificial Intelligence system called Siri, which recognise users by their voice.

When asked if he has ever met an alien, he replies: ‘Personally? Several times.

Mr Oliver said there was a ‘restriction as to what I can tell you’ about the future – when asked who the next US President would be.

Is Microsoft About To Start Charging A Monthly Fee For Windows 10?

Published

on

 

Windows 10 is one of the most popular operating systems in the world. Latest stats from NetMarketShare put Windows 10 as the second most used OS in the world.

Their figures show Windows 10 as having a 36.58 per cent chunk of the worldwide operating system market in July. This is not far behind Windows 7, which has a 41.23 per cent OS market share, which Windows 10 has closed the gap on in the past year.

As more users ditch ageing Microsoft operating systems and turn to Windows 10 some shock news has been revealed about the software. It has been claimed the Redmond-based tech giant are planning to start charging a monthly fee to help PC fans maintain the operating system.

ZDNet’s Microsoft specialist Mary Jo Foley reported that the ‘Microsoft Managed Desktop’ service is currently in the works. It will allegedly ensure PCs running Windows 10 are configured correctly and running smoothly as new updates are released.

However, users will reportedly be charged a monthly fee for this privilege. In her article Foley said: “I’m hearing this Microsoft Managed Desktop is, basically, the Microsoft version of ‘desktop as a service’.

“It will provide customers the ability to lease a Windows 10 device that’s automatically provisioned for them and have the operating system kept up-to-date and more for a single monthly fee, my contacts say.”

Foley also said that she believes the Microsoft Managed Desktop will be targeted at businesses.  She said: “Microsoft looks to be counting on companies being ready for greater predictability — in terms of spending, updating and support — in exchange for letting someone else do the driving.”

It remains to be seen whether the Microsoft Managed Desktop will also be open to consumer users.

Looking For Love? Facebook’s Dating App Is Now In Testing

Published

on

 

For those of you waiting to try and find love through your social network, the Facebook dating app is now being tested internally inside the company, according to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong. According to Techradar, Facebook has since confirmed a trial run is underway.

Screenshots captured by Wong seem to show a sign up screen where you can set your gender and location, as well as specify the sorts of people you’re interested in getting matched up with – all fairly standard for a dating app. Other options in the images seem to let you keep your normal Facebook profile and your dating Facebook profile separate.

Right now, some of Facebook’s staff in the US are putting the app through its paces, though it’s mainly to spot bugs and problems rather than set up any office romances, Facebook says. A public launch date still hasn’t been set.

How Facebook dating will work

The option to dip into dating will stay within Facebook and not appear as a separate app, the new screenshots would seem to confirm – though as we’ve said, those who want to activate the dating option will get a second profile to manage.

That should mean you can keep most of your embarrassing Facebook photos away from a potential match, at least until you’ve got to know each other a little better. If a mutual attraction is established, you and your virtual date can start messaging each other through WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

The screens we’ve seen suggest Facebook is going for a more mature and serious dating experience than something like Tinder, though really, it’s down to the users themselves. The social network’s plans for a dating app were announced back in May.

AUDIO: Workers Run To Court As ZTE Fires All Ugandan Staff After Ban, Huawei Also In Trouble

Published

on

Zhongxing Telecommunications Equipment (ZTE) has fired all it’s staff in Uganda. In a meeting held at their company offices on 3rd May 2018, the ZTE Human Resource manager Daniel Balaba called a crisis meeting where he broke the bad news to all staff that the company was terminating all their contracts with immediate effect because of the ban imposed on them by the USA.

In the same meeting, Balaba called for calm and assured all staff that the company was going to pay all their Salary arrears and allowances.

However, a source inside ZTE has told the Grapevine that the chinese smart phone maker want to run away with their money. The source further told this website that some agrieved staff have run to court and are accussing ZTE of terminating their contracts unfairly without giving them a clear reason.
WHY ZTE WAS BANNED?

The US Department of Commerce announced a seven year ban on the Chinese smartphone maker ZTE after it was discovered that they have been illegally exporting products containing U.S.-sourced components to Iran and North Korea.

ZTE, one of China’s most successful technology company, with about $17 billion in annual revenue, is now facing a death sentence. The Commerce Department also blocked its access to American-made components until 2025, saying the company failed to punish employees who violated trade controls against Iran and North Korea.

A Reuters report states that ZTE’s US ban may also cost the Chinese company its Android license as well. This means ZTE may not be able to use Google’s mobile OS in its devices.

ZTE, which uses Qualcomm processors in many of its phones and exclusively employs Google’s Android operating system and apps, indeed relies on U.S. companies to a significant degree.

The telecom giant was forced to pay more than $800 million in penalties for that transgression, and was directed to rebuke all personnel responsible as part of its plea deal. However, last month, U.S. Department of Commerce investigation found that ZTE retained all of those employees and paid them bonuses. In response, the U.S. government served the company with a ban, forbidding it to use any U.S.-sourced technology in its products for seven years.

ZTE responded by calling the ban unfair, saying it was delivered “before the completion of the investigation of facts.” The company added that the “Denial Order will not only severely impact the survival and development of ZTE, but will also cause damages to all partners of ZTE including a large number of U.S. companies.”

The Grapevine tried to Talk to Balaba for a comment but we couldn’t get him…

HUAWEI ALSO IN TROUBLE

According to numerous online media outlets which include, Reuters, WSJ, Forbes, zdnet among others, Huawei is also reportedly under criminal investigation for possible export control violations to North Korea and Iran.

The Justice Department probe is being run out of the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn, reuters sources said. John Marzulli, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, would neither confirm nor deny the existence of the investigation. The probe was first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday.

Huawei, the world’s largest maker of telecommunications network equipment and the No. 3 smartphone supplier, said it complies with “all applicable laws and regulations where it operates, including the applicable export control and sanction laws and regulations of the UN, US and EU.”

Like ZTE, Huawei also runs google’s android software on their smartphones and a ban could spell even a much bigger disaster than Huawei. When the Grapevine talked to an official from Huawei, he told us that, “those are just mere allegations, no document has come out to claim that Huawei is under investigation.”

CHINA WARNS

In Beijing, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China opposed countries imposing their own laws on others, when asked whether Huawei violated U.S. sanctions related to Iran.

“China’s position opposing nations using their own domestic laws to impose unilateral sanctions is consistent and clear,” she told a daily news briefing.

“We hope that the United States will not take actions that further harm investors’ mood towards the business situation there.”

In February, Senator Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee, cited concerns about the spread of Chinese technologies in the United States, which he called “counterintelligence and information security risks that come prepackaged with the goods and services of certain overseas vendors.”
