Instagram: Update with useful improvements to come
Using Instagram isn't very fun right now. Posts are sometimes displayed in a non-sensical order, the feed updates as you scroll, and posts are often shown late. Instagram is now responding to the complaints from users, an update in which just mentioned Proproblems to be fixed should appear in the coming weeks. This update will also include two new features. The first thing announced was that browsing the feed would take you back to where you left off if you closed the app. In addition, the social network wants to introduce a button that makes it possible to update the feed manually. Nevertheless, automatic updates should not be ruled out, even if, according to Instagram, they should only occur rarely.
Review of the Asus Zenbook UX530UX
This week there was also a new review TechnikNews, this time to a notebook, the Zenbook UX530UX from Asus. In the test, it turned out that this notebook is very slim and light, which is why you can take it with you pretty well. In addition, the device is very well made, which is underlined with good speakers from Harman / Kardon and the good display. The battery life and performance are also on a fairly high level. During the test, it was noticed that quite a lot of bloatware was preinstalled. In addition to this, it also stood out that the battery often only charged up to 99% and that the display flap was processed rather poorly.
Instructions for deleting the Facebook account
A big topic in the technology world is currently the data scandal surrounding Facebook, in which Cambridge Analytica was involved. Sources found that third-party apps linked to Facebook intercepted data from oneself and from Facebook friends. Therefore, many users now want to distance themselves from the social network, but the appeal by Whatsapp co-founder Brian Acton is not entirely innocent. We have published instructions for deleting the Facebook account, in which we also point out what you have to pay attention to.

2 million users known with Spotify crack
Spotify disclosed usage figures for Spotify cracks for the first time this week. As a result, around 2 million users are said to have used an active Spotify crack in the past. Not necessarily a nice number for Spotify – even before the IPO.
