Surprising Discovery of Light-Induced Shape Shifting of MXenes

Ultrafast laser spectroscopy allows observing the motion of atoms at their natural time scales in the range of femtoseconds, the millionth of a billionth of a second. Electron microscopy, on the other hand, provides atomic spatial resolution. By combining electrons and photons in one instrument, the group of Professor Peter Baum at the University of Konstanz has developed some of the fastest electron microscopes for obtaining detailed insight into materials and their dynamics at ultimate resolutions in both space and time.

In their recent publication in ACS NANO, scientists from the Baum lab have applied this technique together with colleagues from ETH Zurich to study novel materials – two-dimensional molecularly defined sheets called MXenes – and made a surprising discovery. Using laser pulses, MXenes can be switched repeatedly between a flat and a rippled shape, opening up a wide spectrum of possible applications.

MXenes: novel two-dimensional materials

MXenes are two-dimensional sheets of transition metal carbides or nitrides in the form of few-atom-thick single layers. “MXenes are comparable to a molecule in one spatial dimension and to an extended solid in the other two,” Dr. Mikhail Volkov, first author of the recent study, describes the structure of MXenes. MXenes are synthesized by “peeling off” the thin layers of material from a precursor material – a process called exfoliation.

In contrast to most other single-layer materials, MXenes can be easily produced in large quantity, thanks to the discovery of a scalable and irreversible chemical exfoliation method. The chemical and physical properties of MXenes can be widely tuned by the choice of the transition metal, leading to widespread applications of MXenes in sensing, energy storage, light harvesting, and antibacterial action.

Nano-waves in MXenes formed by fast light

In their study, primary investigators Dr Mikhail Volkov from the University of Konstanz and Dr. Elena Willinger from ETH Zurich have found a new way to enhance the properties of MXenes by shining fast light pulses on them. Using ultrafast electron microscopy with atomic spatial resolution, they recorded a movie of MXenes interacting with femtosecond laser pulses, showing that the laser energy transfers to the atomic lattice in a record-breaking time of merely 230 femtoseconds.

Unexpectedly, the scientists also found that femtosecond laser light can be used to switch back and forth between the originally flat surface structure of the MXene and a nano-wave form of the material – a hill-and-valley “nano-landscape” with a periodicity that is more than fifty times finer than the laser wavelength. “We can control the nano-wave’s orientation with the polarization of the laser, which means the material has an optical memory on the nanoscale. Moreover, if the laser strikes again, the nano-waved MXene turns back into a plane and remains flat during illumination. The extremely small size of the nano-waves and the fast lattice reaction are also quite surprising, and a phenomenon called plasmon-phonon coupling is likely involved,” explains Volkov.

Nano-waves boosting material performance

“Nano-structuring in the form of waves also increases the surface-to-volume ratio of the materials, making them chemically more reactive. In addition, it enhances the local electro-magnetic fields, improving the coupling with light – a valuable property for sensing applications,” says Volkov. The scientists therefore expect the discovered nano-waved MXenes to show improved energy storage capacity and enhanced catalytic or antibiotic activity. “Finally, the possibility to switch the structure of MXenes between plane and wavy ‘on demand’ via a laser pulse opens up intriguing ways to use the materials in active plasmonic, chemical, and electric devices,” Volkov concludes.

New Extremely Energy-Efficient Optical “Transistor” Speeds Up Computation Up to 1,000 Times

An international research team led by Skoltech and IBM has created an extremely energy-efficient optical switch that could replace electronic transistors in a new generation of computers manipulating photons rather than electrons. In addition to direct power saving, the switch requires no cooling and is really fast: At 1 trillion operations per second, it is between 100 and 1,000 times faster than today’s top-notch commercial transistors. The study was published on September 22, 2021, in Nature.

“What makes the new device so energy-efficient is that it only takes a few photons to switch,” the first author of the study, Dr. Anton Zasedatelev commented. “In fact, in our Skoltech labs we achieved switching with just one photon at room temperature! That said, there is a long way to go before such proof-of-principle demonstration is utilized in an all-optical co-processor,” added Professor Pavlos Lagoudakis, who heads the Hybrid Photonics Labs at Skoltech.

Since a photon is the smallest particle of light that exists in nature, there is really not much room for improvement beyond that as far as power consumption goes. Most modern electrical transistors take tens of times more energy to switch, and the ones that use single electrons to achieve comparable efficiencies are way slower.

Besides performance issues the competing power-saving electronic transistors also tend to require bulky cooling equipment, which in turn consumes power and factors into the operating costs. The new switch conveniently works at room temperature and therefore circumvents all these problems.

In addition to its primary transistor-like function, the switch could act as a component that links devices by shuttling data between them in the form of optical signals. It can also serve as an amplifier, boosting the intensity of an incoming laser beam by a factor of up to 23,000.

How it works

The device relies on two lasers to set its state to “0” or “1” and to switch between them. A very weak control laser beam is used to turn another, brighter laser beam on or off. It only takes a few photons in the control beam, hence the device’s high efficiency.

The switching occurs inside a microcavity — a 35-nanometer thin organic semiconducting polymer sandwiched between highly reflective inorganic structures. The microcavity is built in such a way as to keep incoming light trapped inside for as long as possible to favor its coupling with the cavity’s material.

This light-matter coupling forms the basis of the new device. When photons couple strongly to bound electron-hole pairs — aka excitons — in the cavity’s material, this gives rise to short-lived entities called exciton-polaritons, which are a kind of quasiparticles at the heart of the switch’s operation.

When the pump laser — the brighter one of the two — shines on the switch, this creates thousands of identical quasiparticles in the same location, forming so-called Bose-Einstein condensate, which encodes the “0” and “1” logic states of the device.

To switch between the two levels of the device, the team used a control laser pulse seeding the condensate shortly before the arrival of the pump laser pulse. As a result, it stimulates energy conversion from the pump laser, boosting the amount of quasiparticles at the condensate. The high amount of particles in there corresponds to the “1” state of the device.

The researchers used several tweaks to ensure low power consumption: First, efficient switching was aided by the vibrations of the semiconducting polymer’s molecules. The trick was to match the energy gap between the pumped states and the condensate state to the energy of one particular molecular vibration in the polymer. Second, the team managed to find the optimal wavelength to tune their laser to and implemented a new measurement scheme enabling single-shot condensate detection. Third, the control laser seeding the condensate and its detection scheme were matched in a way that suppressed the noise from the device’s “background” emission. These measures maximized the signal-to-noise level of the device and prevented an excess of energy from being absorbed by the microcavity, which would only serve to heat it up through molecular vibrations.

“There’s still some work ahead of us to lower the overall power consumption of our device, which is currently dominated by the pump laser that keeps the switch on. A route toward that goal could be perovskite supercrystal materials like those we’re exploring with collaborators. They have proven excellent candidates given their strong light-matter coupling which in turn leads to a powerful collective quantum response in the form of superfluorescence,” the team comments.

In the larger scheme of things, the researchers see their new switch as but one in the growing toolkit of all-optical components they have been assembling over the past few years. Among other things, it includes a low-loss silicon waveguide for shuttling the optical signals back and forth between transistors. The development of these components takes us ever closer to optical computers that would manipulate photons instead of electrons, resulting in vastly superior performance and lower power consumption. The research at Skoltech was supported by the Russian Science Foundation (RSF).

Smoky Skies in the Western Amazon – Fire Activity Driven Primarily by Deforestation Fires

Increasing numbers of deforestation fires are darkening skies in Rondônia and Amazonas.

Since the 1970s, tree clearing in the Amazon basin has reduced the size of the Amazon rainforest by roughly 17 percent. That is an area about the size of Texas and Louisiana combined.

While there have been slowdowns and surges in the tempo of forest loss over the decades, recent data indicate that deforestation rates over the past two years have been among the highest in a decade. As a result, smoky satellite images of fires in the southern Amazon have become increasingly common.

The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 acquired a detailed view (above) of fires burning in Amazonas northeast of Vista Alegre do Abunã on August 24, 2021. On the same day, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired the natural-color image below showing several large smoke plumes near the border of the Brazilian states of Amazonas and Rondônia.

July 1 – August 31, 2021

People living in the Amazon basin often light small-scale fires in already cleared areas to maintain pastures and fields, but many of the largest and smokiest fires visible in these images were tied to deforestation, according to a satellite-based fire classification tool developed by Niels Andela (previously at NASA but now at Cardiff University) and Douglas Morton, chief of the Biospheric Sciences Laboratory at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

“Fire activity across the Amazon region has spiked since late July 2021, driven primarily by deforestation fires,” said Morton. “This is clearly the case for northern Rondônia, where our analysis shows that 80 percent of fire detections from the satellites are associated with deforestation fire events.”

August 24, 2021

Morton and colleagues share their insights on South American fires through NASA’s Amazon fire dashboard, a tool that helps observers distinguish between fires that cause more and less ecological damage. Deforestation and understory forest fires (low-intensity blazes that creep along the leaf litter on the forest floor) cause the most lasting damage and contribute to the build-up of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Savanna and small clearing fires tend to have short-lived effects. The dashboard assimilates observations of the intensity and patterns of active fire detections by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor. (Read this for more details about how the tool categorizes fires.)

The deforestation fires in this area are notable for their size and intensity. “What is happening there is nothing like the small-scale clearing done by families that was common decades ago,” explained Morton. “These newer clearings are well beyond the scale of what a family could do. We have already identified 10 deforestation fire events in Rondônia that are larger than 50 square kilometers—meaning each one is larger than a combined 7000 soccer fields.”

Fire activity has also accelerated in recent weeks in southern Amazonas state, one of the fastest-growing frontiers of agricultural expansion across the Brazilian Amazon. “We’re seeing a resurgence of deforestation in an old frontier (Rondônia) spilling into a new frontier in southern Amazonas based on recent changes in road access and demand for agricultural land,” said Morton. The emergence of large fires in this area does not come as a surprise. “These are the same places where other tools that detect forest removal—like Brazil’s satellite-based PRODES and DETER systems—have shown major losses in recent years.”

Most newly cleared land in this area will likely be used for cattle pasture, at least initially. In some parts of Brazil, it is fairly common for farmers to start cultivating soybeans in areas that were initially cleared for cattle, a process that can be tracked using time-series imagery from MODIS and Landsat.

July 1 – August 31, 2021

Every year, scientists from NASA and other institutions analyze sea surface temperatures and other environmental variables to forecast whether climate conditions are likely to exacerbate seasonal fire activity. When sea surface temperatures are especially warm in the tropical Atlantic, there tends to be drier weather in the western Amazon and more fire activity. In dry years, fires often escape their intended boundaries and burn uncontrolled in forests and savannas for weeks or even months. Such conditions occurred in 2005, 2010, and 2020.

“In 2021, we have conditions that are closer to normal in the Atlantic, though water temperatures are slightly above normal,” said University of Arkansas climate scientist Kátia Fernandes. “That implies fire activity in this region may end up as average or just slightly above based on the background climate conditions. But how the fire season ultimately plays out will depend strongly on human behavior. If we see people lighting large numbers of fire for deforestation, we could still end up seeing an unusually active fire year.” (You can view the team’s fire forecast here and learn more about the forecasts an online event hosted by the USAID/NASA SERVIR Amazonia project).

NASA’s Amazon dashboard project is not the only tool using satellites to track fire activity in the Amazon as it happens. A team of researchers from the Amazon Conservation Association has developed a fire monitoring app that uses aerosol data from the European Space Agency’s Sentinel-5 satellite to identify a subset of major fires, or those that create the largest smoke plumes. “The fire season is just getting going, but we’re seeing that the vast majority of major fires have burned in recently deforested areas,” said Matt Finer, director of the Monitoring of the Andean Amazon Project. “Fire [in the Amazon] is not some random event. There’s a tight link between deforestation and major fires.”

Water Coolers Can Release Potentially Harmful Compounds Into Drinking Water

Watercoolers have become a staple in homes, offices and schools, but their tanks and parts are made of materials that could release unwanted or potentially harmful compounds into drinking water. In a preliminary study, researchers in ACS’ Environmental Science & Technology Letters report that organophosphate esters (OPEs) were found in water dispensed from these systems, but they estimated that daily consumption would be far below the levels associated with health problems.

As drinking water from freestanding dispensers has become wildly popular, some concern has been raised about the quality of the water coming out of these systems. For example, OPEs have been found in various types of drinking water, including tap, well and bottled water, in some locations in the U.S., South Korea and China. These compounds are used widely worldwide, replacing harmful brominated flame retardants and as additives in plastics, and now researchers are finding that OPEs are also associated with poor health outcomes. Because these substances are applied to materials or used as additives, which are not strongly bonded to plastic polymers, they can easily contaminate dust or leach into water. So, Yali Shi, Guangshui Na and colleagues wanted to see if water dispensers could contribute to OPE exposure, estimating the amount someone would consume on a daily basis if they only drank water from these types of systems.

The researchers collected water from 53 water dispensers in office buildings in China, both from the storage tanks and dispensed through room temperature and hot water taps. They analyzed the samples for 22 OPEs and detected eight of them in the majority of samples, with tris (2-chloroisopropyl) phosphate (TCIPP) being the most abundant. The water dispensed from the hot and room temperature taps had higher amounts of these compounds than water held in the tanks. Upon closer inspection, the researchers found that the plastic dispenser and the tubing contained these compounds, and the tubing could accumulate OPEs from the air. Finally, the team calculated that if people drank water dispensed solely from these systems, their total daily exposure to TCIPP — a potential carcinogen and endocrine disruptor — was far less than is considered to cause harm to humans. The researchers say that while their study was small, it identifies a need for future research to examine whether silicone is the most suitable tubing material for watercoolers.

Researchers Develop “Nanopore-Tal” Technology That Enables Cells To Talk to Computers

Genetically encoded reporter proteins have been a mainstay of biotechnology research, allowing scientists to track gene expression, understand intracellular processes, and debug engineered genetic circuits.

But conventional reporting schemes that rely on fluorescence and other optical approaches come with practical limitations that could cast a shadow over the field’s future progress. Now, researchers at the University of Washington and Microsoft have created a “nanopore-tal” into what is happening inside these complex biological systems, allowing scientists to see reporter proteins in a whole new light.

The team introduced a new class of reporter proteins that can be directly read by a commercially available nanopore sensing device. The new system — dubbed “Nanopore-addressable protein Tags Engineered as Reporters” or “NanoporeTERs” — can detect multiple protein expression levels from bacterial and human cell cultures far beyond the capacity of existing techniques.

The study was published on August 12, 2021, in Nature Biotechnology.

Raw nanopore signals stream from the MinION device, which contains an array of hundreds of nanopore sensors. Each color represents data from an individual nanopore.

“NanoporeTERs offer a new and richer lexicon for engineered cells to express themselves and shed new light on the factors they are designed to track. They can tell us a lot more about what is happening in their environment all at once,” said co-lead author Nicolas Cardozo, a doctoral student with the UW Molecular Engineering and Sciences Institute. “We’re essentially making it possible for these cells to ‘talk’ to computers about what’s happening in their surroundings at a new level of detail, scale and efficiency that will enable deeper analysis than what we could do before.”

For conventional labeling methods, researchers can track only a few optical reporter proteins, such as green fluorescent protein, simultaneously because of their overlapping spectral properties. For example, it’s difficult to distinguish between more than three different colors of fluorescent proteins at once. In contrast, NanoporeTERs were designed to carry distinct protein “barcodes” composed of strings of amino acids that, when used in combination, allow at least ten times more multiplexing possibilities.

These synthetic proteins are secreted outside of a cell into the surrounding environment, where researchers can collect and analyze them using a commercially available nanopore array. Here, the team used the Oxford Nanopore Technologies MinION device.

The researchers engineered the NanoporeTER proteins with charged “tails” so that they can be pulled into the nanopore sensors by an electric field. Then the team uses machine learning to classify the electrical signals for each NanoporeTER barcode in order to determine each protein’s output levels.

“This is a fundamentally new interface between cells and computers,” said senior author Jeff Nivala, a UW research assistant professor in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering. “One analogy I like to make is that fluorescent protein reporters are like lighthouses, and NanoporeTERs are like messages in a bottle.

“Lighthouses are really useful for communicating a physical location, as you can literally see where the signal is coming from, but it’s hard to pack more information into that kind of signal. A message in a bottle, on the other hand, can pack a lot of information into a very small vessel, and you can send many of them off to another location to be read. You might lose sight of the precise physical location where the messages were sent, but for many applications that’s not going to be an issue.”

As a proof of concept, the team developed a library of more than 20 distinct NanoporeTERs tags. But the potential is significantly greater, according to co-lead author Karen Zhang, now a doctoral student in the UC Berkeley-UCSF bioengineering graduate program.

“We are currently working to scale up the number of NanoporeTERs to hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions more,” said Zhang, who graduated this year from the UW with bachelor’s degrees in both biochemistry and microbiology. “The more we have, the more things we can track.

“We’re particularly excited about the potential in single-cell proteomics, but this could also be a game-changer in terms of our ability to do multiplexed biosensing to diagnose disease and even target therapeutics to specific areas inside the body. And debugging complicated genetic circuit designs would become a whole lot easier and much less time-consuming if we could measure the performance of all the components in parallel instead of by trial and error.”

These researchers have made novel use of the MinION device before, when they developed a molecular tagging system to replace conventional inventory control methods. That system relied on barcodes comprising synthetic strands of DNA that could be decoded on demand using the portable reader.

This time, the team went a step further.

“This is the first paper to show how a commercial nanopore sensor device can be repurposed for applications other than the DNA and RNA sequencing for which they were originally designed,” said co-author Kathryn Doroschak, a computational biologist at Adaptive Biotechnologies who completed this work as a doctoral student at the Allen School. “This is exciting as a precursor for nanopore technology becoming more accessible and ubiquitous in the future. You can already plug a nanopore device into your cell phone. I could envision someday having a choice of ‘molecular apps’ that will be relatively inexpensive and widely available outside of traditional genomics.”

As it faces more scrutiny, Apple will reduce App Store fees if publishers provide Apple News content

News publishers who participate in Apple News will be eligible to reduce Apple’s cut of first-year in-app subscriptions from 30% to 15%, Apple announced Thursday.

The move is the latest example of Apple carving out exceptions for its 30% fee for in-app purchases for different industries and types of businesses under increasing scrutiny and criticism from app developers, competitors and regulators.

Apple News is an app that comes pre-installed on iPhones that displays a variety of news stories in a single interface. It has 125 million monthly active users, Apple said, and the app is part of the company’s growing services business that accounted for 21% of Apple’s sales in the most recent quarter.

In order to secure the reduction, the publishers will have to apply to a new program Apple is calling the News Partner Program.

It will require news publishers to agree to supply all their content to Apple in its preferred Apple News file format and that they provide metadata, or information about the stories, required by Apple. Publishers will also be required to have an active, robust presence in the markets where Apple News is available.

Publishers will be able to apply to the program on Apple’s website starting Thursday.

Participants in the program will also be able to get the reduced 15% take rate in the first year for subscriptions initiated through both their own app as well as the Apple News app. Some publications have paywalls on Apple News and allow readers to subscribe through the app.

News publishers are not the highest grossing apps on the App Store. In the U.S., the top 10 grossing publishers booked just more than $68 million in revenue in the first seven months of 2021, said Sensor Tower, a firm tracking App Store trends. Those companies include the publishers of The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Bloomberg News and CNBC, all of which sell subscription access to paywalled stories through Apple’s App Store.

Not the first program to reduce App Store fees

Apple currently charges 30% of in-app purchases for the first year of a subscription billed through the App Store, but that take is reduced to 15% if the customer subscribes for a second year.

Last year, Apple introduced the App Store Small Business Program, which enables companies that get less than $1 million in net sales per year from Apple to receive a reduced take rate of 15% as well. That program would be a better fit for publishers who make less than $1 million per year, Apple said.

Apple also has a program for established video providers, such as Amazon, that offers the lower 15% take rate if the companies integrate their apps with Siri and other Apple features.

Apple said Wednesday that it was launching the program to support publishers and to ensure its customers have access to quality news sources.

But the announcement comes as Apple’s 30% take from the majority of in-app purchases is under more pressure than ever.

A bipartisan bill currently being debated in Congress would target Apple’s in-app payment system and require the company to allow app developers to use other payment processors that charge less.

A decision in an antitrust trial centering on Apple’s App Store policies is also expected later this year. Epic Games sued Apple in 2019 seeking to avoid its 30% fee on in-app purchases. Netflix and Spotify have removed the ability to subscribe to their services through Apple’s App Store to avoid the 15% to 30% take.

Several overseas governments are examining Apple’s App Store policies and its 30% cut. This week, a South Korean parliamentary committee took a key step toward banning Apple from forcing developers to use its payment system.

Apple has argued in court that its 30% commission is essentially the same as other online software stores like Google Play or stores for video game consoles, and Apple’s fee has decreased over time.

Publishers were not informed of the program before it launched, so there are no named participants yet, Apple said. Publishers who participate in the program will still be able to sell ads in Apple News and use other business models, such as affiliate links.

The program is separate from Apple News+, a subscription to a bundle of digital magazines and newspapers that costs $9.99 per month in the U.S.

The Apple News service is only available in U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia, a lower number of international markets than other Apple services. Publishers outside these countries can provide Apple with an RSS feed and gain access to the program.

Apple has hired human editors to curate its Apple News feeds and to compile special packages for topics like the coronavirus pandemic and the 2020 elections.

Inside Afghanistan’s cryptocurrency underground as the country plunges into turmoil

Farhan Hotak isn’t your typical 22 year-old Afghan.

In the last week, he helped his family of ten flee the province of Zabul in southern Afghanistan and travel 97 miles to a city on the Pakistani border. But unlike others choosing to leave the country, once his relatives were in safe hands, Hotak then turned around and came back so that he could protect his family home – and vlog to his thousands of Instagram followers about the evolving situation on the ground in Afghanistan.

He has also been keeping a very close eye on his crypto portfolio on Binance, as the local currency touches record lows and nationwide bank closures make it next to impossible to withdraw cash.

“In Afghanistan, we don’t have platforms like PayPal, Venmo, or Zelle, so I have to depend on other things,” said Hotak.

Afghanistan still mostly operates as a cash economy, so money in Hotak’s crypto wallet won’t help him put dinner on his table tonight, but it does give him peace of mind that some of his wealth is safeguarded against economic instability at home.

It also offers bigger promises down the road: Access to the global economy from inside Afghanistan, certain protections against spiraling inflation, and crucially, the opportunity to make a bet on himself and a future he didn’t think was possible before learning about bitcoin.

“I have very, very, very limited resources to do anything. I’m interested in the crypto world, because I have earned a lot, and I see a lot of potential in myself that I can go further,” he said.

Run on the banks
For many Afghans, this week has laid bare the worst-case scenario for a country running on legacy financial rails: A nationwide cash shortage, closed borders, a plunging currency, and rapidly rising prices of basic goods.

Many banks were forced to shutter their doors after running out of cash this week. Photos featuring hundreds of Kabul residents crowding outside branches in a futile effort to draw money from their accounts went viral.

Afghan people line up outside AZIZI Bank to take out cash as the Bank suffers amid money crises in Kabul, Afghanistan, on August 15, 2021.

“There’s no bank I can go to right now, no ATM,” said Ali Latifi, a journalist born and based in Kabul. “I live above two banks and three ATM machines, but they’ve been off since Thursday,” said Latifi, referring to the Thursday before the palace ouster.

Without an authority helming the Central Bank, it appears that printing cash to cover the shortfall isn’t an option, at least in the short-term.

The Western Union has suspended all services and even the centuries-old “hawala” system – which facilitates cross-border transactions via a sophisticated network of money exchangers and personal contacts – for now, remains closed.

Sangar Paykhar, a Kabul native currently living in the Netherlands, has been in constant touch with relatives there in recent weeks. He said that many who live paycheck to paycheck were, at first, borrowing money from others to get by, but now, those able to lend out cash have started conserving their funds.

These Robots Can Heal Themselves And It’s Awesome

The cost of Microsoft 365 and Office 365 business subscriptions will be a little higher soon, marking the first significant price change since the subscription services first launched. Microsoft Office includes programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Microsoft 365 is a more inclusive service that also bundles higher tiered versions of Teams, the service that allows users to host virtual meetings that can include up to 300 people, and switch from one device to another while already in a meeting.

Microsoft has been busy updating its various products and services recently. With the launch of Windows 11, Microsoft Office received a new design, along with a 64-bit version of Office designed for ARM devices. Teams also received an update just last month in honor of World Emoji Day on July 15, with emojis receiving a 3D makeover and Clippy returning as a 3D emoji. Earlier this year, the default Office font was changed from Calibiri, which had been the standard since 2007.

Changing Windows 11’S Default Browser Is Hilariously Complicated

According to Microsoft, the pricing change will go into effect six months from now, on March 1, 2022. The Microsoft 365 Business Basic plan will go from $5 per user to $6, while the Business Premium plan will increase from $20 per user to $22. Office 365 E1, which offers web-based apps like Outlook, will go from $8 to $10 per user, with Office 365 E3 increasing from the current $20 price to $23. Office 365 E5 is now available for $35 and will go up to $38 per user when the changes come into effect. Finally, Microsoft 365 E3 will increase from $32 to $36 per user. The changes will apply globally, and will focus on business products, rather than products for educational or consumer use.

What Else Is New With Teams?

In addition to the price increase, Microsoft Teams will also start offering unlimited dial-in capabilities over the coming months, across the business, enterprise, government and frontline Microsoft Office suites. This means users can call a phone number in order to be included in a Teams meeting, which is useful if the individual can’t connect to their Wi-Fi. The ability to dial-in to a meeting is only available with the Microsoft 365 E5 and Office 365 E5 packages.

All in all, the price increase per user isn’t significant, and considering how crucial Microsoft Office and Teams have become to office life in 2021, it’s unlikely that many will have a real issue with the changes. With how many companies have resorted to virtual offices during the past year, being able to connect using the same software and video conferencing, Microsoft or otherwise, has never been more important.

Pixel 5a Is The First Pixel Without Free Google Photos Storage

OnePlus is reportedly prepping to launch its next phone — dubbed the OnePlus 9 RT — in October, running the Android 12-based iteration of OxygenOS but with only a few hardware upgrades under the hood. To recall, the company launched a rather interesting phone called the OnePlus 9R earlier this year alongside the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. It was preceded by the OnePlus 8T, a mid-cycle refresh that wasn’t accompanied by a ‘Pro’ variant and had almost the same set of internal specifications as the OnePlus 9R. It’s all a bit confusing.

Since last year, OnePlus has been following a new product strategy that involves releasing only one ‘Pro’ flagship each year. For 2020, it was the OnePlus 8 Pro. This year, OnePlus 9 Pro carries the mantle. That leaves enough space for only one ‘T’ upgrade each year. So far, rumors have been circulating about an upcoming mid-cycle refresh called OnePlus 9T that will offer a few improvements over the vanilla OnePlus 9. It appears that, instead of the OnePlus 9T, the relatively unknown OnePlus 9R could serve as the foundation stone for the next OnePlus offering.

RELATED: OnePlus Will Add An Option To Make Its Phones Even Faster

As per an Android Central report, the OnePlus 9 RT is scheduled for an official launch in October and will be the last phone in OnePlus’ numbered series to debut in 2021. It is said to borrow some key specs from the OnePlus 9R such as its 120Hz AMOLED display, a 4,500 mAh battery with 65W fast charging support, and a tweaked version of the Snapdragon 870 SoC with a slightly higher clock speed. The Snapdragon 870 itself is based on last year’s Snapdragon 865 series chips and has been the go-to choice for smartphone makers aiming to deliver top-tier performance on a budget.

A Few Minor Upgrades And Limited Market Release

OnePlus 9RT Rumored To Arrive In October

There will be a couple of key improvements, according to the report. The OnePlus 9 RT will borrow its 50-megapixel main camera from the OnePlus 9 series. The Sony sensor behind this 50-megapixel snapper has delivered some impressive results on the OnePlus 9 series phones, which means OnePlus 9 RT buyers won’t feel left out when it comes to the imaging prowess. The other notable enhancement to arrive with the next OnePlus phone happens on the software side, as the device will boot OxygenOS 12 based on Android 12 out of the box.

More importantly, the next iteration of OxygenOS has been built on top of the same codebase as the ColorOS skin running on Oppo smartphones. OnePlus and OPPO, both of which fall under the aegis of the same company, have now deeply integrated their resources. OxygenOS 12 reportedly won’t offer much in terms of aesthetic updates, but there will be a host of new features including support for resizable floating windows, a native theme store, and a private safe for storing sensitive files. However, the OnePlus 9 RT will reportedly be exclusive to the Indian and Chinese markets, and won’t make its way to Europe or the US.
