Facebook will release more data about election interference, but only after the election

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

Amid growing pressure to remove bad actors from Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Wednesday that the company would likely release more information about problematic content posted to the service during elections. But to ensure the accuracy of the data, Zuckerberg said, the reports will likely come after the elections are over. The move could help government officials, academic researchers, and concerned citizens understand whether Facebook’s increased attention to abuse is working — but the timing could make it harder for grasp what’s happening when it arguably matters most.

During a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, Zuckerberg took questions on a range of subjects surrounding the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal and…

Unsplash, tech’s favorite stock image site, now has an iOS app

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

Unsplash, the apparent stock image database of choice for Silicon Valley companies, is launching an iOS app for creators and hobbyists to browse through catalogs of high quality photos to use in a creative project or any other personal use. Today’s launch is Unsplash’s third foray into apps — it launched a macOS app last year solely designed for rotating wallpapers on a Mac computer, and a similar app for the Apple TV in 2016.

The new mobile app is optimized to be best used with an iPad — users can drag photos they like to the lower left corner to download the image, or use multi-screen mode to drop the picture into a project file they’re working on. Unsplash fills its database with stock images from a community of photographers willing…

Jay and Silent Bob are coming to virtual reality, whether you’re ready or not

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

Filmmaker Kevin Smith first broke into the film industry thanks to his no-budget, 1994 indie comedy Clerks, and now that movie’s two most memorable characters will be coming to virtual reality. Jay and Silent Bob VR will be a live-action comedy series that will be written and directed by Smith, shot from the point of view of his Silent Bob character as Jason Mewes’ Jay “leads the way through a string of idiotic adventures.”

It’s just one of several VR projects in development that were announced today by STX Entertainment’s Surreal division, which handles VR and immersive entertainment production for the company. Among the other titles are an untitled live-action series from John Wick writer Derek Kolstad, about a government agent sent to…

YouTube will increase security at all offices worldwide following shooting

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

In the aftermath of the shooting at YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California yesterday, the company has announced plans to increase security at all of its offices worldwide. This is intended to “make them more secure not only in the near term, but long-term,” YouTube says. The move reflects a growing concern in Silicon Valley that the effects of increasingly toxic and partisan online behavior may translate into violent offline actions.

YouTube’s statement was released through Google’s Twitter account for communications; it’s not clear whether Google itself will be implementing stronger security measures beyond YouTube. The Verge has contacted Google for comment.

The shooter, 39-year-old Nasim Aghdam of San Diego, died yesterday…

Mark Zuckerberg says he is a ‘power user of the internet’

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

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a call with reporters today to answer questions about the sweeping changes the company made to its third-party app developer platform, as well as the revelation that as many as 87 million users — not 50 million as previously thought — may have had their personal data misused by Cambridge Analytica.

Slate’s Will Oremus asked whether the chief executive himself would have used apps like the one designed by Cambridge psychology professor Aleksandr Kogan, called “thisisyourdigitallife,” that siphoned the data of around 270,000 users and all of their friends, which Kogan then packaged and sold.

The CEO’s answer was candid and will likely enter the pantheon of iconic Zuck quotes, which also includes his…

Spotify claims it actually had a better Weeknd than Apple Music

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

Yesterday, The Verge reported that The Weeknd’s latest album, My Dear Melancholy, had a very strong debut on Apple Music, pulling in 26 million streams in the first 24 hours. The lead single, “Call Out My Name” pulled in an additional 6 million streams, surpassing the 3.5 million streams the single pulled in on Spotify during the same period, according to The Weeknd’s label, Republic Records.

Obviously that would be a huge win for Apple Music given that it has around 120 million less users than Spotify, didn’t have two exclusive music videos from the project, and didn’t have The Weeknd promoting its service.

But there’s a twist! Spotify says the numbers it initially gave Republic Records were in fact wrong. “Call Out My Name” was…

JVC’s first DLP 4K projector is $2,499

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

JVC has a number of 4K projectors, but the cheapest model is $ 3,999, and all of them use JVC’s own special-blend D-ILA technology.

But JVC is finally stooping down to serve the masses with a more traditional DLP-based 4K HDR projector at a (relatively) affordable $ 2,499 price point. JVC’s new LX-UH1 is a 2,000 lumen projector with a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and support for HDR10. JVC has kindly included a wide range of vertical and horizontal lens-shifting angles, and a touch of zoom, so it should be relatively easy to install this projector and get the image aimed at the correct spot on your wall.

Without some in-depth reviews, it’s hard to tell what makes JVC’s new projector $ 1,000 better than the Optoma or BenQ 4K…

This hard drive offers 1TB of storage for photos and an app that lets you edit on the go

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

For anyone who suffers from a long wait while attempting to upload large video and photo files onto their computer, there’s a new Kickstarter for a portable hard drive that says it can back up your files and offer faster on-the-go file uploading services you can use right after taking photos. The company suggests you can do away with bringing your laptop to outdoor photo shoots and instead use its mobile app for editing files and uploading to Dropbox.

The Kickstarter is for a device called the Gnarbox 2.0, which lets you insert your SD card into the hard drive and use it as an additional backup tool. It’s an upgrade to its predecessor, the Gnarbox 1.0, which already offered a mobile large file storage and uploading solution also through…

Google now purchases more renewable energy than it consumes as a company

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

Google announced in a blog post that it now purchases more renewable energy than it consumes as a company. Google began these efforts in 2017, with the goal of purchasing as much renewable energy as it uses across its 13 data centers and all of its office complexes.

To be clear, Google is not powering all of its energy consumption with renewable energy. It’s matching what it consumes with equal amounts of purchased renewable energy. For every kilowatt-hour of electricity consumed, it buys a kilowatt-hour from a wind or solar farm built specifically for Google. The company says that its total purchase of energy from sources like wind and solar now exceeds the amount of electricity used by its operations.

Google says it currently has…

This tough, $700 phone is meant for first responders, but you can buy it if you want

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

I have a soft spot for ultra-rugged devices. Sure, they may not always be the best phones out there when it comes to things like cameras or razor-sharp displays, but they’re a fascinating example of what happens when you take a multipurpose device like a smartphone and turn it into a gadget that’s designed for just one thing. In this case, that’s sheer and almost ridiculously overengineered ruggedness. Joining the ring as a new contender for the toughest phone yet is the Sonim XP8, which recently went on sale at AT&T, via Android Police.

As an Android phone, there’s not much to see here. It still runs Android Nougat, instead of the newer Oreo, and internally, there’s a Snapdragon 630 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (which can be…
