  • What developers can teach us about responsive design
    by Mark Boyes-Smith on February 22, 2020 at 9:00 am

    Did you know TNW Conference has a track fully dedicated to exploring new design trends this year? Check out the full ‘Sprint‘ program here. Since the dawn of web design, we have measured our websites in pixels. A somewhat absolute measurement that describes the smallest visual unit of a screens resolution. I’ve developed a rather love-hate relationship with these little gremlins, certainly from an engineering point of view. On the one hand, the pixel is a ubiquitous measurement that is easy to visualize. Given its absolute nature, I know that a 2px border will be the same width on my desktop, my iPhone,… This story continues at The Next Web […]

  • No spoilers: How to mute words and phrases on Twitter
    by Rachel Kaser on February 22, 2020 at 12:48 am

    Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff. Twitter is kind of the wild west of social media. Everything’s thrown together in one big news feed, and even if you’re scrupulous with the use of lists, some things can still sneak through your filters. Twitter allows you to mute hashtags and accounts, but imagine my surprise when I discover you can do this with individual words — and without having to delve into the menu system either. I had no idea I could… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Twitter […]

  • Facebook plans to clarify when pro-Bloomberg posts come from staffers
    by Napier Lopez on February 21, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    Former New York City mayor and presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is spending an unprecedented amount of money on his campaign. A big chunk of that is going into his social media efforts, where members of his campaign have been posting Pro-Bloomberg messages. The problem is there’s no obvious way to tell these messages come from paid staffers. According to CNBC, Facebook is considering taking steps to make it clearer that these messages come from paid staffers, though it did not disclose what options it’s considering exactly. The company told CNBC: We think it’s important that political campaigns have the guidance… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Facebook […]

  • PSA: Your WhatsApp groups may not be as private as you think
    by Napier Lopez on February 21, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    Don’t count on your private WhatsApp group being as private as you think. An important PSA has been making the rounds today after DW journalist Jordan Wildon noted that using Whatsapp’s “Invite to Group via Link” feature lets groups be indexed by search engines. Your WhatsApp groups may not be as secure as you think they are. The "Invite to Group via Link" feature allows groups to be indexed by Google and they are generally available across the internet. With some wildcard search terms you can easily find some… interesting… groups. pic.twitter.com/hbDlyN6g3q — Jordan Wildon (@JordanWildon) February 21, 2020 That… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: WhatsA […]

  • Android 11 lets you assign shortcuts to a double-tap on the back of your phone
    by Napier Lopez on February 21, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    When I moved from a Pixel 3 to 4, I found myself missing the fingerprint sensor much more than expected. Not because of the fingerprint reader itself – Google’s Face ID works surprisingly well – but because I used the fingerprint reader to pull down the notification shade all the time. It turns out Google is working on an alternative in Android 11. As spotted by XDA Developers, Android 11 includes a hidden double-tap-on-the-back-of-your-phone gesture for Pixel devices. Codenamed ‘columbus’ in an inside joke for Zombieland fans, you can assign this double-tap to a number of different actions, including: Dismissing a… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Android […]

    Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff. Instagram introduced the ability for users to make their own augmented-reality filters last August, via the Spark AR Studio. Since then, we’ve seen a steady stream of user-made filters, and users have made some very creative ones that you’ll no doubt want to try out for yourself. So how do you get those effects on your face? It’s… complicated. The filters have ranged from the generic to the geeky. One trend I’ve noticed in particular… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Instagram […]
