Many early adopters of the OnePlus 5 have complained about what they call a “jelly effect” when scrolling through apps and the UI. Now, the company says this is intentional and not a bug or manufacturing defect. The distracting behavior makes the content appear to wiggle and stretch when a user tries to scroll. Some OnePlus 5 buyers have complained about the issue in various forums and speculated about its cause. Now, according to OnePlus, “The OnePlus 5 uses the same level of quality components as all OnePlus devices, including the AMOLED display. We’ve received feedback from a small number of users who say they sometimes notice a subtle visual effect when scrolling. This is natural, and there is no difference in screens between devices.” Therefore, users cannot repair it by making a warranty claim.

According to multiple reports, the OnePlus 5 passed the dunk tests and liquid immersion in good condition. On the other hand, the device appears fairly resistant to liquid damage, although the company has not claimed that it is waterproof or even water-resistant. Users should, of course, take appropriate precautions to ensure their phones are not exposed to unnecessary exposure to liquids for which they are not officially certified, and the company is unlikely to cover water damage under warranty.

Petya malware only pretended to be ransomware. The Petya malware attack that spread earlier this week appears to have used a bit of social manipulation to hide its true purpose. It is now known that Petya targeted Ukrainian computer systems but acted like ransomware to divert suspicion from its true target. With the recent Wannacry ransomware attack still fresh in people’s minds, it was easy for researchers and security companies to be tricked. However, it is clear that Petya did not hold a ransom for data but wiped out infected machines. There was no motive for financial gain. The ruse shows that whoever created Petya worked with a high degree of sophistication. The malware initially spread when the attackers took over the update delivery mechanism of a Ukrainian business software company and infected its customers. It then spread across those customers’ local networks.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
