A couple of years ago, Apple introduced its “Live Photos” — a feature, which has the phone’s camera record a short video that spans the time just before and just after you press the shutter button. Photos are viewable as normal, but force-pressing (or just long pressing if you don’t have 3D Touch) makes them “come alive” with the frames that were captured just before and just after. A neat little feature, great for capturing family moments with that fidgety little one, pets, fireworks, and other unpredictable stuff.
For quite a while, Live Photos have been an exclusive club. If you wanted …
After a woman in Pensacola, Florida discovered a golden orb weaver (a type of spider) in her home, she decided to relocate it to a “more appropriate location” — one that we assume is not inside a house.
But before being subjected to relocation, the spider decided to crawl around on the woman’s face. Surprisingly, the woman seemed fairly cool with that, a reaction to which I absolutely cannot relate. (To be fair, it’s not a particularly aggressive spider and does have a low-risk bite, but … still.)
Here’s hoping this yellow friend has now woven a beautiful circular web somewhere in the Great Outdoors. Read more…
If Pete Souza keeps it up with his Instagram responses to President Trump, we’re going to start thinking he doesn’t like the guy!
On the morning of Sept. 17, Trump referred to Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man” in a tweet (shortly before retweeting a video in which he hits Hillary Clinton with a golf ball — it’s been a big day for the president). While the taunting nickname is bizarre in the context of things American presidents have said throughout the nation’s history, it’s just another Sunday morning for Trump.
Gmail app users on Android are finally getting the quality-of-life feature they always deserved. The latest update to hit the popular e-mail client allows people to change the information of their Google Account straight from the app itself.
That’s definitely the idea behind a new app from Ataru Tou called MagicMovieCamera, which lets you place various virtual objects in real spaces and then record yourself reacting those objects.
What is this good for? Why an enhanced version of the Mannequin Challenge, of course. Or maybe even pretending you’re Neo in The Matrix.
Confirming a recent rumor, T-Mobile today launched a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 BOGO (buy one, get one free) offer, essentially allowing customers to get two high-end phones for the price of one.
The deal requires financing agreements for both smartphones, qualifying credit, and a new line of qualifying service. While the first phone you’re buying must be a Galaxy Note 8, you can choose your second handset between the Note 8, Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S8+. The cost of the second device will be refunded via a Prepaid MasterCard Card in about 8 weeks from purchase.
Officially announced yesterday, the rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Active can be pre-ordered in the US as of today – only on AT&T for now. The smartphone can be purchased both from AT&T, and from Samsung’s website, and should start shipping later this week, on August 11.
If you’re getting the S8 Active from Samsung, you can save $150, as the company is offering the handset for $699.99 (instead of AT&T’s $849.99 outright price). Samsung also lets you buy the Galaxy S8 Active for $29.17 per month for 24 months ($700.08 in total) with Samsung Financing – in …
