Google Authenticator is a free security app that can protect your accounts against password theft. It's easy to set up and can be used in a process called two-factor authentication (2FA) offered on popular services like Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more.
Instagram is testing a new feature that lets you stream live Instagram broadcasts with a friend in split-screen mode.
Today, YouTube launched a new feature within its family of mobile applications, allowing users to share videos in a chat-like interface with friends. Here’s how it works.
Professional photographers often spend hours painstakingly perfecting their images in Lightroom and Photoshop before sharing them with the world. But researchers at MIT are promising similar results generated so quickly that your smartphone can correct and retouch a photo before you’ve even taken it.
As with many image-processing breakthroughs we’ve seen over the past few years, the ‘secret sauce’ of this new app lies with an artificial neural network that’s able to learn how to retouch photographs using before and after examples. In this case, researchers used a data set they created in cooperation with Adobe Systems which included 5,000 images that had each been color-corrected and retouched by five different professional photographers, allowing the neural network to generate its own guidelines on what the final result should look like given a specific starting image.
A viral video about a new app looks like a dream come true for anyone who struggles with math.
Based on the promo clip, PhotoMath, dubbed a "smart camera calculator," appears to use smartphone cameras to scan a photo of a math equation in a textbook and display the answer instantly — similar to apps that scan barcodes and takes users to a link in a web browser. It looks like the app can also show step-by-step instructions for solving the problem.
Getting a newborn to sleep, or even just break out of a crying fit, is no easy feat. White Noise helps by flooding baby with soothing sounds, from "Heavy Rain Pouring" and "Ocean Waves Crashing" to "Extreme Rain Pouring" and "Stream Water Flowing." It's easy to switch between sounds and adjust the volume to find the mix that works best for baby. Only one downside: The app doesn't work in the background if you exit it to work on other things. Best to download it onto one of the old disconnected iPhones sitting in a drawer and make that baby's iPhone.
It’s September, and that means that there are some new iPhones in town.
Specifically, there were three new phones announced today at Apple’s fall event: the high-end iPhone X, which was the star of the show with a new bezel-less design, OLED screen, and 3D face-scanning tech. There’s also the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the Apple Watch Series 3 (i.e., the Apple Watch Series 2 with LTE), and the Apple TV 4K (a, um, Apple TV with 4K). Oh, and everything is more powerful and faster, too.
Missed something during all the chaos? We’ve got the details below, along with full coverage of Apple’s newest iPhones and products.
Volkswagen has announced that it will produce an electric version of its Microbus, the iconic, bug-eyed "hippie bus" most often associated with free-wheeling road trips to Woodstock.
