Instagram is adding the ability to share a story through Direct messages today. You’ve been able to share regular posts since 2015, but this is the first time the oh-so-popular stories have been available through DMs. To share a story, just tap the new Direct icon at the bottom of the screen while viewing one and select a friend or group to share it with. That said, there are several restrictions to keep in mind. For one, shared stories only last as long as the original post itself, which basically means they will disappear from your DMs within 24 hours.… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Instagram

One of my favorite accounts to follow on Twitter is the notorious Jony Ive parody account, which spews hilarious tweets about everything Apple from the perspective of the company’s legendary chief design officer. The reason I especially enjoy going through his feed is how adeptly he manages to infuse Apple puns with poignant criticism aimed at their traditions and products. In fact, some of his comments are so sharp that even Apple Support seems to take them seriously. Earlier today the parody account punked the Big A for its inability to keep upcoming announcements from leaking to the public, suggesting… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Apple

Apple’s latest update is going to disappoint a lot of people. It’s devoid of flashy features, notable design upgrades and, aside from a few subtle upgrades and tweaks, there’s really not much to love for the typical Mac user. It’s easy to appreciate the revamped Photos app. Subtle tweaks to Mail, Notes, Spotlight, and Siri offer something to sink your teeth into, although none of the above will entirely satiate your appetite for new features. But for those anxious to write it off as a let down, I’d caution against it. High Sierra, below the surface, is Apple’s most important… This story continues at The Next Web

The long saga surrounding who truly owns that monkey selfie has finally come to a conclusion. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and British photographer David J. Slater have agreed a settlement where Naruto, the crested macaque who picked up the unattended camera and snapped a shot of himself, is entitled to 25-percent of future royalties from the shot. The money won’t be paid directly to Naruto. Instead, it will be directed to charities working to protect the crested macaques in Indonesia. In addition, the two parties have also asked the 9th US Circuit of Appeals to reverse… This story continues at The Next Web

Following in the footsteps of fellow messenger apps like Telegram, WeChat and Viber, WhatsApp is getting closer to rolling out its ‘Delete for everyone’ feature, which lets you wipe out messages you sent by mistake before your contact has had a chance to read them. The company has finally begun testing the functionality on Android and iOS devices, serial WhatsApp leaker WABetaInfo reports. According to the insider, the dedicated recall server is now working and successfully deleting messages.

Way to go, Teddy boy. Just hours ago, the Texas senator’s Twitter account liked a totally NSFW tweet that included a two-minute long video clip from @sexuallposts. That’s got him trending on the platform right now, with 163,000 recent Cruz-related tweets doing the rounds at the time of writing. We’ve got a pixelated screenshot below, but like we said, this isn’t something you’ll want to be browsing at your workplace.

With two massive hurricanes having devastated the southeastern border of the United States and the Caribbean, overnment officials and crisis responders have accepted social media as a reality when it comes to real-time communication and information delivery — and it may be saving lives. Just two weeks ago, the US Coast Guard urged East Texas citizens to stay off social media, and to report their crises via the more traditional method of calling 911 or similar emergency numbers.

Waymo, a driverless car company owned by Google parent company, Alphabet, has a fleet of driverless vehicles that have logged the company millions of kilometers driven on real city streets, but the bulk of its deep learning comes from driving on virtual roads. Developers for the company are training more than 25,000 autonomous vehicles over 12 million kilometers (8 million miles) of simulated roads driven every day. The simulations involve highly complex situations including multiple lane intersections and irregular vehicle traffic.

Amazon’s next flagship Fire TV will come with advanced voice assistant capabilities, according to a report by AFTVNews. If the leak holds up, Amazon is basically combining the Fire TV and Echo lines into one all-powerful set-top box. Leak images show a new device shaped like a cube with volume buttons and holes for the far-field microphones. A blue LED strip matches the classic Echo aesthetic, too. Interestingly, the device is is reported to have an IR emitter for controlling your TV and other devices that don’t support making adjustments via the HDMI-CEC standard.

Millennials are changing the retail landscape in some pretty unexpected ways. This largest generation in United States history is pretty broke – they’ve grown up in the great recession, they are saddled with student loan debt, and they make about $2000 less per year than young adults did in 1980. They are still spending money, they are just doing it a little differently than those who came before them.

Ransomware has been disastrous for businesses and individuals alike, with recent attacks like WannaCry costing companies millions, and personal attacks threatening private data. We’re all at risk. Criminals are holding data and information hostage using tools that require almost no skill, and once they have your files it’s too late to react.

If Virtual Reality is all about creating a sense of presence, content that lets you create and share live moments could be its killer app Getting people to try out a VR experience for the first time is usually not hard. The novelty factor gets most people curious enough to at least give it a go.

Once upon a time, the iPhone was little more than a rumor. A rumor, sure, but one surrounding an all-new category of product from the then-coolest company in tech. Suffice to say, the media and gadget-buying public alike were stoked. Everyone, I note, except respected columnist and broadcaster John C. Dvorak, who predicted the iPhone spelled doom for Apple, and felt it would best abandon the product, much like it did with the Newton almost ten years earlier. In a MarketWatch post titled “Apple should pull the plug on the iPhone“, Dvorak said the iPhone was a “another device in… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: iPhone

Facebook is testing a feature that allows you to set a ‘private’ profile only your closest friends can see. After all, not everyone on Facebook is really your friend.

Unfortunately, the ‘Create a Private Profile button’ doesn’t actually work, so we have no clue what exactly a private profile entails.
