Facebook has admitted the company has been secretly deleting messages sent on Messenger by founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications,” says a Facebook spokesperson in a statement to TechCrunch. “These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s messages in Messenger. We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages.”

Old Facebook messages sent by Zuckerberg have simply vanished in some existing threads, and TechCrunch reports that affected messages no longer appear in Facebook’s download your information tool. Recent messages from Zuckerberg reportedly remain in some users’ inboxes, and the…

Isao Takahata (L) and Yoshiaki Nishimura attend the 87th Annual Academy Awards Oscar Week Celebrates Animated Features at Samuel Goldwyn Theater on February 19, 2015 in Beverly Hills, California.

Isao Takahata, the legendary anime director that co-founded Studio Ghibli alongside Hayao Miyazaki, has died. He was 82. Yahoo Japan reports that he had been suffering from a heart condition and was hospitalized last summer; Studio Ghibli has since confirmed the news of his death.

Although not as internationally well-known as Miyazaki, Takahata directed some of Studio Ghibli’s most beautiful and original films, from the moving Only Yesterday to the heart-wrenching war drama Grave of the Fireflies. He also served as producer on early Miyazaki works Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Castle in the Sky, and his last directorial credit was for the elegaic, visually stunning Tale of the Princess Kaguya.

Takahata never drew himself, which…

Snapchat is finally releasing its special Lenses for iPhone X users

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple teased iPhone X-exclusive AR Snapchat Lenses at the phone’s launch event last year, and today, Snapchat is finally releasing them. Only iPhone X users will be able to see the three lenses that are available today, thanks to the TrueDepth front-facing camera of the devices. Those lenses include a Mardi Gras-esque mask, a Day of the Dead skull, and a pretty gold-plated eye cover.

You’ll immediately notice these lenses more tightly sticking to your face, particularly around the jawline, at least going off Snapchat’s provided photos and videos. Snap says the lenses should reflect the surrounding light more realistically. It also says the TrueDepth camera lets it blur the background in these lenses and accurately apply small details…

Indiana Joan Jones is the female lady heroine that women need

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The next time Indiana Jones appears in film could mark a major change for the franchise. In an interview with The Sun, filmmaker Steven Spielberg told the publication that it may be time for the roguish, Nazi-punching archaeology professor to take “a different form.” Graciously, Spielberg means a woman, not a snakeperson. According to Spielberg, however, this would mean changing more than the gender of the character. “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that.”

Spielberg’s assertion that there’s nothing wrong with this name change is not 100 percent correct, because this is not actually how last names work. Does Indiana Jones become Indiana Joan, wherein the reboot is set in a dystopian…

Apple’s total number of apps in the App Store declined for the first time last year

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The App Store’s total number of apps available decreased in 2017 for the first time in the history of the marketplace, according to analytics company Appfigures. iOS apps in the App Store shrank to 2.1 million over the course of 2017, after beginning the year at 2.2 million.

The decline can be attributed in part to Apple’s decision back in 2016 to remove old apps that were no longer compatible with newer iPhones and apps that didn’t comply with recent review guidelines. Apps that were not built on 64-bit architecture were removed.

To add to the graveyard of dead mobile software, Apple also removed virus-scanning apps, apps that were clones of other apps, and other low quality apps that were…

Alexa can now broadcast your voice to every Echo in the house

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Telling the family that dinner’s ready or reminding the kids it’s time for bed won’t require as much shouting if you’ve got a smart home with Echo speakers scattered around. Today Amazon announced a new feature called Alexa Announcements, which will let you simultaneously broadcast a voice message to every Echo in the house.

Users already had the intercom-style ability to carry on two-way conversations between rooms, but the one-way Announcements function is meant for the kind of grand pronouncements that you want everyone to hear. They’ll play back on all supported devices, which include the Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Spot, and Echo Look.

You send an Alexa Announcement by saying “Alexa, announce that…” followed by…

OnePlus might launch its first wireless earbuds soon

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

One Plus phone

It looks like OnePlus has a pair of wireless earbuds in the works. As spotted by Nashville Chatter, a listing on the Bluetooth certification site reveals the existence of a product called the OnePlus Bullets Wireless. Since OnePlus already has two pairs of wired earbuds called the Bullets, it’s pretty clear what this product is going to be. The only big question the name leaves is whether they’ll be fully wireless or still include a wire that wraps around the neck.

OnePlus has already gone on record saying it’ll include a headphone jack on its next phone, so wireless headphones aren’t really a necessity for the company. But it’s not a surprising launch either since the headphone industry is moving in this direction, and there are plenty…

Google employees demand the company pull out of Pentagon AI project

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Last month, it was revealed that Google was offering its resources to the US Department of Defense for Project Maven, a research initiative to develop computer vision algorithms that can analyze drone footage. In response, more than 3,100 Google employees have signed a letter urging Google CEO Sundar Pichai to reevaluate the company’s involvement, as “Google should not be in the business of war,” as reported by The New York Times.

Work on Project Maven began last April, and while details on what Google is actually providing to the DOD are not clear, it is understood that it’s a Pentagon research initiative for improved analysis of drone footage. In a press statement, a Google spokesperson confirmed that the company was giving the DOD a…
