Today, we embark upon the next major evolution of Mixer…. a journey we’re calling “Season 2.” We’re specifically calling it a Season because it’s not just a one-day thing. Season 2 reflects the living, breathing nature of Mixer with new experiences and new things to try all the time. As part of Season 2, we’re continuing to grow and refine our existing experiences with new video capabilities for streaming and viewing. And then we’re also investing in three big new areas: expression, supporting creators through new monetization opportunities, and strengthening streamer communities. Excited? Us too! Let’s take a deeper look at what’s coming today and on the horizon for Season 2…
Apple unveiled the biggest revamp to the iPad since its launch – with the screen covering the whole front of the gadget. The iPad Pro also now has Face ID, so users can unlock it and approve purchases just by looking at it, instead of the fingerprint scanner. Apple said new, bigger “brains” mean it is more powerful than nine in ten PCs – despite being in a super-slim case just 5.9mm thick.
WhatsApp ads are coming. After being free to use for years, details are starting to come out about just how Facebook will monetize WhatsApp, the popular mobile messaging app it purchased for $19 billion in 2014. According to India’s The Economic Times, WhatsApp vice president Chris Daniels revealed that the company is going to start putting ads in the “Status” feature of the app.
Is it scratching an itch? Does it represent bad Botox? Perhaps it’s your reaction to an awful pickup line. A new emoji with an uneven face and rosy cheeks is driving the internet wild. One eye is open, one eyebrow is slightly furrowed, and the mouth is doing something pretty inexplicable. According to the Emojipdia, the go-to blog about emoji, this Woozy Face digital expression represents the state of being tired and emotional (aka drunk), but people on the internet seem to think it represents a wide range of other occurrences…
Flickr is making some big changes, following its acquisition by SmugMug earlier this year. The company announced this week it’s addressing a series of issues on the site, including spam, customer support and use of the Yahoo login, for example. But more notably, it’s also revamping its account structure to impose increased limits for free users, while rolling out unlimited storage for Pro subscribers.
The streamer was trying to catch a supply drop in midair using a helicopter he was piloting, with Skadoodle, just9n and anythING directing him on how to steer the helicopter so it would be directly underneath the falling package. Shroud was able to position the helicopter perfectly, with the supply drop landing neatly on top of the helicopter. Unfortunately, instead of sitting on top of the vehicle, it began to drag the helicopter down to the ground, and Grzesiek could only watch in horror as he was pushed through the map and into an abyss below.
Whatever your preference, in today’s image-conscious social media world people generally want to look the best they can, and that’s why SenseTime, the world’s most highly-valued artificial intelligence (AI) start-up, is offering a filter for smartphone cameras and live-streaming apps that can automatically touch you up.
Four days after admitting that it continues to track users even after the Location History tracking has been disabled, Google has updated its website to more accurately reflect the nature of its location policy.
Apple will launch a refreshed entry-level MacBook next month, according to a report, with an updated model claimed will be revealed during the company’s September event alongside new iPhones and other product announcements.
Cupertino-based Apple Inc. will be holding a party next week. To be exact, the tech giant’s spring event is slated on March 27. News about Apple’s event has been circulated to the media since last week.
“Join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students,” Apple said, suggesting that its focus now is on education. But there’s more to that, Apple may seem to disclose details of its new product, a new iPads, for instance.
Apple to release new iPad product lines?
Although Apple has yet to issue a comment on the rumored new iPads. The iPad lineup obviously got a major makeover since last year. For instance, in 2017 Apple’s iPad Air 2 was replaced with the current 9.7 inch iPad. In case you don’t know, the company has also discontinued the production of iPad Mini 2.
The recent of which is Apple’s 10.5 inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros. This leaves the iPad Mini 4 isolated as it received only a minor upgrade. Fast forward this year, a rumor has circulated that Apple’s new iPad would feature Face ID.
Also, we might expect as well that Apple would announced a new version of $329 iPad or the Mini. But all these remain speculations, unless Apple would confirm that a new iPad product launch is likely.
Meanwhile, Apple’s event would be held at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago on March 27. The company’s invitation is devoid of any hint that it would launch new iPads or any Apple products.
If Apple won’t reveal anything on March 27 then the perfect venue would be this year’s WWDC which is slated to commence on June 4 at San Jose.
