Google to launch new Gmail design in the coming weeks

Apr 12, 2018 - 6:33 PM - by Reverend
Google is planning to launch a new design for its Gmail web interface soon. In an email to G Suite administrators, obtained by The Verge, the company says the new design will include “several new features” that will also be made available to regular Gmail accounts. Google promises a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web,” with features like Smart Reply, the ability to snooze emails, and offline support.

Google isn’t revealing exactly what the new design for Gmail looks like, but the company did recently launch a new design for Google Calendar. The calendar was updated with modern icons, colors, and cleaner event boxes. Overall the design looked a lot more like the mobile app, and it’s reasonable to assume that Gmail itself will be updated in a similar way. Google did radically redesign Gmail for its separate Inbox app back in 2014, but the company has stuck to the original Gmail design so far for its web version.

Google’s Gmail redesign will be available in the coming weeks as an early access program for G Suite customers and personal Gmail accounts. Google is looking to test critical Chrome extensions, to ensure the new Gmail experience is compatible before it’s widely available.

Google confirmed a new Gmail is on the way in a statement to The Verge. “We’re working on some major updates to Gmail (they’re still in draft phase),” says a Google spokesperson. “We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can’t share anything yet—archive this for now, and we’ll let you know when it’s time to hit send.”

Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus arrive April 13

Apr 10, 2018 - 10:54 AM - by Reverend
Add the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus to the list of devices you can get in bright red.

Apple on Monday announced that the two 2017 iPhone models will be available in the color later this week. The phones are part of the Product Red program, meaning that a portion of the profits from the sale of the devices goes to the Global Fund, a charitable organization that funds programs that combat HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.

According to Apple, the company has donated more than $160 million since partnering with the Fund in 2006, and is the Fund's largest corporate donor.

The new models have a black front face and a red backside, harkening back to the U2 iPod released back in 2004. By contrast, last year's iPhone 7 Product Red edition had a white face.

The price of the red iPhones are the same to end users as the space gray, white and gold models, which have been available since September 2017. They start at $699, £699 or AU$1,079 for the iPhone 8 and $799, £799 or AU$1,299 for the iPhone 8 Plus.

Instead of a red finish, iPhone X owners will have to settle for a new Product Red version of the folio case ($99, £99 or AU$145). There, the Product Red color gets added to the existing portfolio of six hues.

The red iPhones and case will be available to order as of Tuesday, April 10. Delivery and in-store availability starts Friday, April 13.

Snapchat brings back its popular reverse chronological order for Stories

Apr 09, 2018 - 10:27 AM - by Reverend
Snapchat’s redesign has been controversial, to say the least. A few months ago, the popular social media app made headlines after throwing users for a loop with its decision to show Stories in an algorithmically sorted feed, rather than chronological order. It appears that Snapchat is now listening to its users’ grievances, and is rolling back the redesign (at least for some users) and instead showing Snapchat Stories in reverse chronological order once again.

When Snapchat first offered up its new look, its CEO Evan Spiegel wrote in, “We are separating the social from the media, and taking an important step forward towards strengthening our relationships with our friends and our relationships with the media.” The idea was that Snapchat would offer its user base more personalized content. That idea, while well conceived, was not particularly well received by everyone.

Snapchat is now taking things back a bit. As originally reported by Techcrunch, some folks are now seeing the reverse chronological ordering of Stories both in the version of the app where there are separate Stories and Chat tabs, as well as the design where there is only Stories and All tabs.

The issue with reverse chronological ordering is that it automatically gives the advantage to users who are frequent Snapchat users. And the benefit to algorithmic sorting is that it has historically helped with social media platforms’ growth. For example, both Instagram and Twitter implemented this sorting technique, and Instagram has been touting that it has eclipsed Snapchat in terms of popularity among users. Indeed, after Snapchat implemented algorithmic sorting, the social media platform saw growth numbers increase.

Intel's debut 6-core Core i9 CPUs could push gaming laptops past 5GHz speeds

Apr 04, 2018 - 7:49 AM - by Reverend
For years, PC gamers have needed to pick a poison: Buy a desktop with the most powerful components available, or sacrifice some performance for a laptop they could take on the road. Intel’s new 6-core mobile Core i9 chip, its fastest notebook CPU ever, paves the way for 5GHz gaming laptops, making that decision a little easier.

Using new “thermal velocity boost” technology to propel the new Core i9-8950HK from a base clock rate of 2.9GHz to a whopping 4.8GHz, the new unlocked 8th-generation Core i9 sits atop five new Core i5 and Core i7 high-performance mobile H-series chips, plus four more U-series Core chips aimed at lower-power systems. (All are “Coffee Lake” 14nm chips.) Intel also launched a new lineup of desktop Core processors, plus a new designation (Core i7+) to indicate the presence of hard drive-boosting Optane memory inside notebook PCs.

Compared to a 7th-generation Core processor, Intel says Core i9 is up to 41 percent faster in gaming frame rates and 32 percent faster when streaming and recording your gameplay. Since the new Core i9 is unlocked, expect gaming PC makers to release 5GHz systems, Intel executives said. And if Optane memory comes bundled, performance could increase further, though the 7th-gen system Intel used for comparison includes a slower mechanical hard drive rather than an SSD.

“It’s the fastest gaming processor we’ve ever launched,” said Fredrik Hamberger, general manager of Intel’s premium and gaming notebooks. “It really is the closest to desktop performance you can get in a notebook.”

Facebook to End Targeted Ads Built with Third-Party Data Mining

Mar 29, 2018 - 10:19 AM - by Reverend
The fallout from the Cambridge Analytica controversy has triggered Facebook to cancel an advertising tool that pulled data from people's backgrounds, like whether you own a home or what products you like to buy.

"We want to let advertisers know that we will be shutting down Partner Categories," Facebook said on Wednesday. "This product enables third party data providers to offer their targeting directly on Facebook."

These third-party providers include Acxiom and Experian, which specialize in mining data on US consumers that can be rented out for marketing purposes. Information about your ethnicity, marital status, whether you own a car, the kinds of purchases you make, and how much you spend on them can all be logged.

The data mining certainly sounds creepy, but it's also legal and standard practice in the marketing world. Acxiom, for instance, pulls the information from public records, consumer surveys, and other commercial entities that managed to collect your information with your consent.

Facebook decided to let its own advertisers harness the power of these data brokers with its Partner Categories over on its ad platform. But no more. The company is phasing out the tool, amid the growing backlash over the social media giant's privacy practices.

"We believe this step, winding down over the next six months, will help improve people's privacy on Facebook," the company said.

The social media giant's privacy practices have been under the microscope ever since news emerged that a UK political consultancy called Cambridge Analytica managed to pull the personal data from 50 million Facebook users. It did so with the help of a third-party app that surveyed Facebook users, by not only collecting their data, but also vacuuming information on their Facebook friends.

In response, Facebook is revamping its privacy practices, and Wednesday's... [Read More]
