Apple is set to slightly alter the wording on its notice for the iCloud Private Relay error that switched off the VPN-like feature for some users. According to MacRumors, the tech giant will update its note for users, clarifying that their carriers aren't always to blame for the issue. After a previous iOS 15.2 update, some users found that they couldn't use Private Relay while on a cellular network. Private Relay ensures that, as long as the user is on Safari, not even Apple can see their activities. The original notice puts the blame solely on mobile carriers:"Private Relay is turned off for your cellular plan. Your cellular plan doesn't support iCloud Private Relay. With iCloud Private Relay turned off, this network can monitor your internet activity, and your IP address is not hidden from known trackers or websites."T-Mobile, however, denied that it was responsible for the error happening to its subscribers' phones. It told Bloomberg's Mark Gurman in a statement that it identified a problem with the iOS 15.2 update that toggled off the feature by default. Apple denied that its update rolled out with changes to Private Relay, as one would expect: "No changes were made to iCloud Private Relay in iOS 15.2 that would have toggled the feature off," a spokesperson said.Whatever the real reason is for the feature being switched off, fixing the problem could be as simple as toggling some settings back on. The updated notice that rolled out with iOS 15.3 beta now says:"Private Relay is turned off for your cellular plan. Private Relay is either not supported by your cellular plan or has been turned off in Cellular Settings. With Private Relay turned off, this network can monitor your internet activity, and your IP address is not hidden from known trackers or websites."Apple's support page now also contains instructions on how fix the problem: If Private Relay has been switched off for a cellular network, users can go to the network's settings and turn on "Limit IP Address Tracking." They can go to WiFi settings and do the same if the feature isn't working on WiFi.

On Wednesday, the White House said it plans to allocate billions of dollars for more wind, solar and geothermal energy projects across the US. That will include moving forward with the lease of six commercial areas off the coasts of New York and New Jersey to turn the area into wind farms. More than 488,000 acres of ocean seafloor will be used to build an estimated 5.6 and 7 gigawatts of clean power generation. Using the $65 billion Congress set aside for power grid upgrades, the initiative also puts $2.5 billion toward funding the installation of new transmission lines.The Biden administration may still struggle to decarbonize the countrys power grid by 2035, however. Not only is there political gridlock, but the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has said that federal agencies spent $684 billion on coal plant carbon capture and storage projects most of which have failed.

Google Meet has started rolling out live translated captions widely after testing the feature last year. It works on web or mobile but is still fairly limited, translating only English meetings to four languages: French, German, Portuguese and Spanish."Translated captions help make Google Meet video calls more inclusive and collaborative by removing language proficiency barriers," Google wrote in a Workspace blog. "When meeting participants consume content in their preferred language, this helps equalize information sharing, learning, and collaboration and ensures your meetings are as effective as possible for everyone." GoogleThe feature is designed to be helpful for all-hands or training meetings with teams located around the world. It can also be helpful in education settings, according to Google, "allowing educators to connect and interact with students, parents and community stakeholders with diverse backgrounds." To use the feature, users need to switch on captions in settings and set it to English before toggling on translated captions underneath. They can then choose one of the translated language options. For more detailed information, check Google Meet's translated captions help page. Google first announced the feature at its I/O developer's conference last year, and Otter offers a similar service for Google Meet and Zoom. Live translated captions are available for Google Workspace Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, the Teaching and Learning Upgrade and Google Workspace for Education Plus customers. It's rolling out gradually as of yesterday, so it could take up to 15 days before you see it.
