LONDON, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the mouse market, companies in the mouse market are introducing a biometric mouse to improve data security and privacy for the user.

Many have dubbed Rust a C++ successor, however speaking at a recent event, Google Principal Software Engineer Chandler Carruth explained how the programming language that was initially a Mozilla product doesn’t have the same “bi-directional interoperability” as other tools, which introduces a type of ‘language barrier’ when ‘translating’ between different programming language.
