Moment’s new $149 anamorphic lens lets you shoot cinematic-looking footage with your phone

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

Moment’s made a name for itself creating lenses for smartphones (which we just published a review of today, by the way), but the company is now venturing into a new segment: filmmaking. This campaign is being kickstarted (pun not intended) by a $ 149 anamorphic lens, and the results look pretty impressive. That’s probably how the Kickstarter already has over $ 370,000 (and climbing) in funding on a $ 50,000 goal.

Three other products were unveiled alongside this lens by Moment today: an iPhone X Battery Photo Case, a gimbal counterweight, and a filter mount.

Review: Moment’s modular lenses up your Pixel 2’s photography game… if you have a few hundred bucks lying around

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

The cameras on smartphones are getting ridiculously good — good to the point that most households don’t even own standalone cameras anymore. But given the dimensions that phone cameras are restricted to, they’re not as flexible as something like a mirrorless or DSLR with interchangeable lenses. That’s where Moment comes in. The company offers a small collection of lenses that can be individually purchased and attached to its Photo Cases, which are available for a variety of phones.

Hulu’s Super Bowl stream fails during final moments of game

Hulu’s live TV subscription service cut off the end of tonight’s Super Bowl in some markets during the climactic final moments of the Eagles/Patriots game. Tom Brady was making a last-ditch push down the field in hopes of tying the 41-33 contest when Hulu customers lost all video and audio from NBC and U.S. Bank Stadium. Not everyone experienced the abrupt cutoff,

But those who did received an error screen before the game’s conclusion. Error messages ranged from “no content available” to one that said the game couldn’t be shown due to rights restrictions.

Twitter is selling a new kind of ad: Sponsored Moments

New ads mean new revenue.

More ads are coming to Twitter.

The company is selling a new type of ad: Sponsored Moments, which are collections of tweets packaged around a specific event or theme, like the Oscars.

Paying to “sponsor” a moment means advertisers can add promoted tweets to the collection, and even add their branding on a title page for the Moment. Here’s an example, in which Bank of America sponsored Bloomberg’s collection of tweets about Davos.

 Twitter

The new ads matter for a couple of reasons. More ads means more money for Twitter, of course. In this case, more ads could also mean more money for Twitter partners, like Bloomberg. These deals involve some kind of revenue split, though a Twitter spokesperson declined to share details. Regardless, that means Bloomberg made money by creating tweets about its Davos coverage, which should incentivize them (and other partners) to use Moments more often.

A few other points worth noting.

  • We don’t know how many people actually use Moments, so it’s tough to know what the total business opportunity is here.
  • Not all Moments will include ads. The sponsorships are only available for a list of “premium publishers” that work with Twitter, a group of around 200 organizations that include TV networks and sports leagues. Right now, each deal is negotiated separately among publishers, advertisers and Twitter.

WD turns to single app portal to create ‘mobile moments’ for workers

Over the past year and a half, storage hardware maker Western Digital (WD) has been in the throes of a massive integration of three companies onto a single application portal.

After acquiring two multi-billion dollar competitors in the past five years – HGST and SanDisk – WD chose to create a new, single application web portal instead of choosing from among the three already in use by each company.

One of the drivers for starting from scratch with a single corporate app portal was to help speed up the integration of future mergers and acquisitions, as well as hardening mobile security. The company also wanted to empower end users by giving them open access to whatever business app they need on any mobile device.

Twitter Moments are now vertically-scrolling lists

Back in 2015, Twitter revealed ‘Moments,’ which are compilations of tweets about a certain topic (usually news-related). After opening one, every tweet would be displayed full-screen, sometimes with an image or video taking up most of the screen.

  

Twitter has quietly changed this behavior, and now Moments are basically just lists. They still have large opening pages, but you now scroll down instead of swiping left to see the tweets.

Synology releases new ‘Moments’ and ‘Drive’ apps for NAS boxes

Synology is one of the most well-known makers of NAS boxes, and it has more than a dozen Android apps that plug into these devices. You can add two more apps to the list today with the release of Synology Drive and Synology Moments. They’re both free, but they both require Synology packages that aren’t available quite yet.

Synology Drive (above) appears to be a file manager, but it seems more like the Google Drive app than Synology’s existing file explorer.
