Autumn has arrived, and the leaves on the trees have begun to change color.
In the coming weeks, there will again be some changes. Users of older cell phone models will soon no longer be able to use WhatsApp messenger service; in Upper Austria, the first new public university in 30 years will start operating, and we will be “given” an hour’s sleep. In addition, bargain hunters will get their money’s worth in October, as will comic fans.
A pilot project is being launched in Upper Austria and parts of Lower Austria just in time for “Coffee Day” on October 1. According to the project, consumers can hand in aluminum and plastic capsules and compostable capsules of any brand at all waste material collection centers in Upper Austria, Krems Land and Schwechat until the end of March 2024.
As of October 23, WhatsApp will no longer function properly on Android smartphones that do not have at least version 5.0 or more recent updates installed.
The reason is that older devices may not have the latest security updates or may be missing important features essential for the reliable operation of the Messenger app. WhatsApp has stressed on an information page that affected users will be notified several times in advance and will receive reminders that an update is required unless they get a new device.
On October 26, the new “Asterix” volume will be released. It will be titled “The White Iris”. According to initial reports, the unknown author Fabrice Caro, Fabcaro, wants to deliver a typical Asterix story in the Gallic village. In the process, the chief of the brave Gauls, Majestix, is to be plunged into a deep crisis. By the Teutates!
Visa and Mastercard plan to increase credit card fees starting in October. As the “Wall Street Journal” reports, merchants will be charged higher fees. For customers, nothing is to change directly. Indirectly, however, it is feared that some companies will pass on some of the costs to consumers through higher sales prices. Discounts are intended to help customers choose alternative payment methods, such as cash or ATM cards.
On the night of October 10, punctually at 0:01, Amazon gives the starting signal for the mega sale of Prime Day. Prices are reduced for precisely 48 hours—until October 11, 23:59 p.m. However, the bargain offers are only valid for Prime members.
