Twitter buys a TV
Who would have thought that television viewing would always be social? Twitter is looking to do it by agreeing to buy Snappy TV, which is a startup in San Francisco. The trip seems to be another step towards Twitter's complaints to prevent what it calls "social television", first of all, unveiling its Vine app last year. Some of the Snappy TV customers include Fox Sports, Universal Sports and ABC News just to name a few. The smartphone is already used by various media to send sports updates and other videos on Twitter. This deal will allow Twitter to make video a large part of its service, which is something that it's interested in doing for some time now. Both parties have so far been more dense about the purchase price.
Google and Microsoft Phones to Provide Kill Switch
As technology is spreading, there would be no disagree that the smartphone is still a bad reality, and recent figures have only shown that chances are likely to increase. Keeping that in mind, two times at the Technical University, Google and Microsoft recently announced that their models in the future will prevent killing switches, enabling the user to turn off his smartphone and make it useless to the thief. New York Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, also said that with companies like Google and Microsoft on board, almost 95% of smartphones will feature kill switches. The latest version of Apple iOS does not have a killer called "Activation Lock" along with tracking software that requires a password before iPhone or iPad can be reset. Samsung also launched a similar feature called "Reactivation Lock" in May.
While many people call it poor recovery in smartphone thieves, they believe that the government is taking part in the Orwell event, where companies that offer contractors in a position to brick by phone just to punish either remarkable customers or after a two year service agreement is completed. While it may be obvious financial incentives for an aviation company, it may be possible to prevent a smartphone company from being switched off. Whether it will work or not? We just have to wait and see.
The App That Encourages "Yo-ing"
Yo is a new messaging app that seeks to change how we send text through our phone. The app was developed by Tel-Aviv based entrepreneur who obviously believes that 140 characters are too much to deal with. Since the word "Yo" can mean nothing, you can use the program to say almost anything you want, except maybe order pizza.
So, there you are, the top news of our technology centers who did not get the attention they understood.
