Huawei Mate RS: 2 fingerprint sensors, 4 cameras, crazy price

If the new Huawei P20 Pro with its spangly Twilight finish isn’t quite premium enough for you, the phone-maker has another, even more expensive version, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS. While it might be part of the Mate series by name, the similarities between the new Android phone and the P20 Pro are significant: indeed, the flagship feature of the P20 Pro has been borrowed wholesale.
That’s the triple rear camera array, Huawei’s big selling point. Designed in collaboration with Leica, it sees the Porsche Design phone sprout not only a 40-megapixel RGB color sensor on the back, but a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with a 3x optical zoom.
On the front, meanwhile, there’s a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect OLED display. It’s running at 2880 x 1440 resolution, too, higher than the P20 Pro, for a 538 ppi pixel density. Inside there’s the same Kirin 970 octa-core processor, paired with 6 GB of RAM. However, while the P20 Pro gets 128 GB

Google acquires Tenor to make finding GIFs easier

Google has announced the acquisition of GIF platform Tenor, explaining that interest in GIFs has increased over the years and so it is targeting the content type. Google Images initially focused on images, but the way people communicate has changed and GIFs have become a common way to express ideas or emotions. As a result, Google Images experiences millions of GIF searches every single day.

Tenor has been around for a while; any GIF aficionado is likely aware of it. The platform makes it easy to search a huge library of GIFs using keywords, and it surfaces content that is currently trending. Users are given the option to download a GIF in standard definition, high definition, or as an MP4; the content can also be directly shared via a URL or embedded into a page or post.

Google says Tenor will keep running as its own separate bra

Mozilla’s new add-on isolates Facebook in container tab to protect users

Mozilla, the company that recently called out Facebook’s current default data settings, has just released an extension that addresses the platform’s potential privacy issues. Called the Facebook Container Extension, this new offering stuffs Facebook into its own container tab whenever the social network is accessed, helping ensure the user’s data isn’t tracked.

Mozilla has focused heavily on privacy-related products in recent months, launching things like its Firefox Focus mobile browser. The company previously launched Multi-Account Containers, an extension for using multiple IDs or accounts at the same time in a single browser. The Facebook Container Extension builds upon that, but is focused specifically on the social network.

Spotify and Discord join forces for group listening while gaming

Today we’re hearing of a rather surprising team up between Discord and Spotify. This new partnership will allow you to link your Discord and Spotify accounts, opening up a bunch of new music listening options when you’re chatting with friends in Discord. Perhaps the coolest of these new features is the ability to listen to Spotify tracks as a group.

On the surface, Spotify functionality within Discord will work in a way that gamers are already used to. Just like it does when you’re playing a game, Discord will show others when you’re listening to Spotify in the user list of each server. From there, you can click on a user’s name to see exactly what they’re listening to.

In the pop-up panel that appears when you click a username, you’ll see information like song title, artist and album name, and even a progress bar that shows you how far along the user is in the song. You’ll also see buttons you can click to listen to that song in Spotify yourself or, if you’re a

Google Confirms Algorithm Update Occurred Last Week

Google has confirmed that a broad core algorithm update was released last week.
This is the type of update that occurs several times per year, Google says, which could bring one or more changes to search results.
Google was not specific as to what changes were implemented— it could be anything from changes focused on specific improvements, to broad changes affecting all search results.

Sites may see drops or gains in rankings as a result of the changes that occurred, which Google says is normal. It sounds as though rankings will fluctuate according to how pages should have been ranking prior to this update.

”There’s nothing wrong with pages that may now perform less well. Instead, it’s that changes to our systems are benefiting pages that were previously under-rewarded.”

Should you notice rankings drop following this update, Google notes there is no particular “fix” o

iPad 2018 vs iPad 2017: New product, old hardware

Today we’re having a peek at the new iPad compared to the old iPad, specs on specs. These two devices are exceedingly similar to one-another, looking a whole lot like each-other on the outside save one minor detail. It’s what’s inside the counts, in a big way. It begins with the Apple Pencil, a device which works on the new iPad, but does not work with the old.
The new iPad does not have a number of features one might expect from a “new iPad.” If it were an iPad Pro, we’d expect 2nd-gen Touch ID, a Smart Connector, True Tone technology, a wide color P3 display, and ProMotion. Instead we’ve got a lot of parts that, on their own,

The body for this iPad was first introduced 5 years ago, and hasn’t changed in any significant way since. The Apple chip inside was first revealed 2 years ago, and the cameras are
