TwitterFacebook

Hell yeah. YouTube is finally letting creators know what curse words they can use without taking a financial hit. 

In a video uploaded to its Creator Insider channel, YouTube has finally defined what exactly constitutes profanity on the platform. YouTube creators have often struggled with censoring their own content over fear that their videos will be demonetized, thus affecting their earning potential. 

For the first time, YouTubers now have a guide.

YouTube says it’s not just cursing that will affect your monetization status. Three things can affect whether your video is demonetized for profanity on the platform: the video’s title, thumbnail image, and how often the language is used at the beginning of the video. The company defines “the beginning of a video” at around 30 seconds, for now, noting that the definition can change over time. Read more…

Facebook’s latest tactic to push users from News Feed into Stories? Get them to hype events. 

The social network is testing a new feature that lets users share Facebook events directly in their Stories. The feature is being tested in the United States, Mexico, and Brazil, but could eventually roll out more broadly. 

The plan is to get people to share events they’re interested in directly from their Facebook Story. Their friends can then click into the event page and let their friends know if they’re also interested in attending.  Read more…

Away Bigger Carry-On with Pocket

$295 (starting)

The Good

Stylish design • Ejectable 10 • 000 mAh battery • Plenty of room

The Bad

Scuff • not scratch • resistant • Somewhat steep price

Your carry-on is probably the last thing you think needs a tech upgrade. 

Size, weight, design, and price are usually the factors I consider when buying the one piece of luggage I use until the wheels, or handle, fall off. But there’s a new generation of travel companies that are bringing this essential equipment into the 21st century with “smart luggage.” Read more…

Google Social Good Metoo Forced Arbitration Tech

TwitterFacebook

Google CEO Sundar Pichai might just want to check his Twitter tomorrow.

A group called Googlers for Ending Forced Arbitration will hold a tweetstorm on Tuesday, Jan. 15 to educate the public about forced arbitration agreements and advocate for their removal from the tech industry. The group, which says it’s run by organizers of the Google Walkouts and dozens of other employees, announced the plan in a Medium blog post to inform people about “how forced arbitration denies 60 million Americans access to their civil rights.”

Wifi Routers Mashable Shopping Shopping Amazon Tech

TwitterFacebook

It’s 2019 and there’s not a damn reason you should be putting up with slow WiFi.

We have folding phones, self driving cars, and robots that fold your laundry — and you think having to pause Netflix so it can buffer is normal? Please.

Netgear’s routers are some of the best-selling on the market right now, and you can grab the Nighthawk R6700 model for $50 off at just $79.99 at Amazon today when you clip the Amazon coupon featured on the listing.

If you Google “best WiFi routers,” there’s a reason the Nighthawk series is almost always in a top spot. A 1GHz dual core processor, Beamforming boosts, and speeds up to 1750 Mbps means that even the most device-heavy households (like, 12 devices or more) won’t phase this router. (One reviewer says that it quadrupled their speed.) For hardcore gamers, the R6700 model is equipped with advanced features like upstreamed Qos to get rid of that annoying lag. Read more…

Mobile Android Leaks Rumors Oneplus

TwitterFacebook

A reckoning is coming in the phone world in 2019.

The established players — namely Apple and Samsung — will face their fiercest competition yet from Chinese phone makers like Huawei, Xiaomi, and Oppo, which are all speedily racing to launch premium-quality phones with true all-screen designs that costs well below $1,000.

However, my crystal ball’s telling me there’s one particular Chinese phone maker that could finally leapfrog everyone and become a global powerhouse, and that’s OnePlus.

OnePlus’s rise to household name has been a long, winding journey years in the making. I’ve used and reviewed every single one of the company’s phones since the OnePlus 2, even buying a few for myself and for my parents along the way. Read more…

Now the company has announced a Jan. 16 event that hints at a smartphone camera with 10x optical zoom. 

The news comes via Chinese outlet MyDrivers.com, which points to an Oppo patent, as well as the upcoming event’s tagline — it translates to “ten for the see,” roughly — as proof that Oppo has indeed managed to make a smartphone camera with 10x optical zoom.
