Snapchat brings back GIPHY after removal due to racist GIF

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

After a racial slur GIF caused Snapchat to remove its GIPHY sticker feature, Snapchat confirms to TechCrunch it’s reinstated its integration. GIPHY has apologized, fixed the bug that let the objectionable GIF slip through, and reviewed its GIF sticker library four times in an effort to guarantee that offensive content won’t end up in apps that embed it. Instagram had also removed GIPHY, but reinstated it last week with Snapchat saying it had nothing to share yet.

A Snap spokesperson told TechCrunch that over the past several weeks, the Snap team worked with GIPHY to revamp its moderation systems. Now Snap is confident that the fresh approach will protect users, so its brought the GIF stickers back. They let people embellish their photos and videos with overlaid animated illustrations and video clips.

So ends a month-long ordeal that started when a U.K. user spotted a GIF containing a racial slur for people of color. Snapchat removed the GIPHY feature as press backlash in the U.K. mounted. Instagram wasn’t aware of the issue until informed by TechCrunch, leading it to remove the GIPHY feature within an hour.

Warning: We’ve shared a censored version of the GIF below, but it still includes graphic content that may be offensive to some users.

The situation highlights the risks of working with outside developers that aren’t entirely under a platform’s control. Piping in external utilities lets apps quickly expand their offering to users. But if developers misuse people’s data, deliver broken functionality, or let objectionable content through, it can reflect poorly on the app hosting them. Facebook is currently dealing with this backlash surrounding Cambridge Analytica. Meanwhile, Instagram just severely restricted its APIs without warning, breaking many developers’ apps in what’s believed to be part of Facebook’s push to shore up data privacy.

Favoring news publishers, Snapchat historically never actively embraced developers, banning use of outside apps that require your Snapchat credentials. It’s more recently started letting devs build and promote their own augmented reality lenses. But after this set-back, we’ll have to see if Snapchat becomes any more reluctant to work with partners.

Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, Note8 Always On Display update brings GIF support

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

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the company’s latest flagships and these phones come with some impressive features that aren’t present on the 2017 flagships. However, today the company is pushing one such feature to S8 and Note8 flagships. Samsung has released an update to the Always On Display (AOD) on the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note8 that adds support for using GIF. The update lets you add a little action to the otherwise-dull clock and time Always On Display. Samsung allowed you to add themes and photos, but GIF is the latest update. You can either chose from a list of Samsung defaults or upload one from Gallery. Since we are talking about GIF, it shouldn’t be long and you can trim it from the gallery. The GIF won’t play for long, it just plays once when you turn the display off. If you wish to see the GIF again, just double-tap-on the screen. This limitation is put forth to reduce battery consumption. To get the new Gif animation feature, you will have to update the Always on Display from ‘My Apps’ and once you’ve updated, you will need to select the particular clock style that shows images on the display. …

Apple brings official support for external GPUs to macOS in new update

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

Apple external GPU support

Apple introduced support for external GPUs on macOS High Sierra this week, months after revealing it would do so at WWDC 2017 last summer. Rolling out earlier this week, the macOS 10.13.4 update gives Mac users with Thunderbolt 3 ports the ability to enhance the graphical performance of their machines by connecting a variety of external graphics processors. This can open the door to 3D and VR gaming, even on a relatively weak machine.

Apple lists several supported eGPU configurations on its website, highlighting several AMD Radeon cards such as the RX 570, RX 580 and RX Vega 56. Apple also notes that you’ll need a Thunderbolt 3 chassis to sufficiently power your card, so it’s not as simple as plug-and-play (though that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise).

Apple warns that eGPUs are only supported on MacBook Pro notebooks released in 2016 or later, iMac computers released in 2017 or later, and the iMac Pro. You also need to have the latest version of macOS High Sierra installed on your machine, so be sure to update before you try plugging in an external processor.

Here’s everything Apple says you can do once you update to macOS 10.13.4 on a supported machine:

  • Accelerate applications that use Metal, OpenGL, and OpenCL
  • Connect additional external monitors and displays
  • Use virtual reality headsets plugged into the eGPU
  • Charge your MacBook Pro while using the eGPU
  • Use an eGPU with your MacBook Pro while its built-in display is closed
  • Connect an eGPU while a user is logged in
  • Connect more than one eGPU using the multiple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports on your Mac2
  • Use the menu bar item  to safely disconnect the eGPU
  • View activity levels of built-in and external GPUs. Open Activity Monitor, choose Window > GPU History.

If you’re at all uncomfortable using an eGPU, be sure to read Apple’s support page before you plug one in.

MIUI 9.5 brings full-screen gestures to devices with 18:9 aspect ratio – Here’s how to enable it

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

Xiaomi was one of the manufacturers which opted for capacitive navigation keys in favor to utilize maximum screen for display, but with 18:9 devices Xiaomi had to ditch the physical keys for on-screen navigation keys as devices with new aspect ratio have minimal bezels at front. Android manufacturers have started adopting gesture support after the launch of iPhone X and Xiaomi doesn’t want to remain behind in the race. Xiaomi introduced the Full Screen gestures with MIUI Global Beta ROM back in January but till that time Mi MIX 2 was the only device launched in India with 18:9 aspect ratio. Xiaomi introduced the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India on 14th February with 18:9 ratio, Redmi Note 5 MIUI Global Beta ROM was made available to users as it is same as Redmi 5 Plus which was launched in China in Dec 2017. The Redmi Note 5 Pro is yet to receive MIUI Global Beta ROM and Full screen gesture support, but recently Oreo based MIUI Global Beta ROM was leaked for Redmi Note 5 Pro which has support for Full Screen gestures as well. As per a post on Mi Community, Xiaomi has decided to roll …
