Facebook wants to be a newspaper -- meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Facebook wants to be a newspaper -- meet the new boss, same as the old boss | Creatively Awesome Tech | Scoop.it

As Facebook rolls out some new algorithms relating to its main News Feed, there has been a lot of attention paid to who might win and who might lose as the social network reshuffles its ranking system for content. But the bigger picture behind all these moves, as Mike McIsaac notes in a piece at All Things Digital, is that Facebook is asserting even more of its control over what users see, as part of its goal to become a kind of digital newspaper.

Ryan Seacrest funded Typo iPhone Keyboard coming in January for $99

Ryan Seacrest funded Typo iPhone Keyboard coming in January for $99 | Creatively Awesome Tech | Scoop.it
Can’t live without a good QWERTY keyboard but still want to use an iPhone? Neither can Ryan Seacrest who backed the Typo iPhone Keyboard, a $99 slide-on accessory with backlit keys that uses Bluetooth to communicate with your iPhone 5 or 5s.
Daphne Cheung's insight:

This is highly impressive. The Typo Products keyboard is backed by Ryan Seacrest who is an American radio personality, television host, and producer, this keyboard for iPhone looks very promising.

 

If you were a Blackberry user before the touch screen devices became popular, you probably miss having a physical keyboard allowing you to type quickly and accurately. And this keyboard looks very much like a Blackberry keyboard.

 

This accessory comes in two parts, once attached it also serves a dual purpose as a case. And because it's a physical keyboard, it prevents the on screen keyboard from showing so you gain 40% more screen space.

 

A big plus, the keyboard is backlit.

Don't Swear While Playing NBA 2K14; You'll Get A Technical Foul

Don't Swear While Playing NBA 2K14; You'll Get A Technical Foul | Creatively Awesome Tech | Scoop.it

An Xbox One "fan" has uploaded this video of him getting T'd up in 2K14, and learning a valuable lesson: Kinect is always listening. Even in one-player mode, it's sensitive to voice commands—and swear words.

 

The censorship is present in other games as well (and on other consoles, it should be noted). Reddit user RossBoomsocks was playing FIFA 14 when he received this directive from his club's board of directors: cut down on the cussing.
