The Problem With Google AMP

Slashdot.org - Wed, 01/18/2017 - 13:40
Kyle Schreiber has raised some issues about Google's AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages), an open source project unveiled by the company in 2015 with which it aims to accelerate content on mobile devices. He writes on his blog: The largest complaint by far is that the URLs for AMP links differ from the canonical URLs for the same content, making sharing difficult. The current URLs are a mess. They all begin with some form of https://wwww.google.com/amp/ before showing a URL to the AMP version of the site. There is currently no way to find the canonical link to the page without guessing what the original URL is. This usually involves removing either a .amp or ?amp=1 from the URL to get to the actual page. Make no mistake. AMP is about lock-in for Google. AMP is meant to keep publishers tied to Google. Clicking on an AMP link feels like you never even leave the search page, and links to AMP content are displayed prominently in Google's news carousel. This is their response to similar formats from both Facebook and Apple, both of which are designed to keep users within their respective ecosystems. However, Google's implementation of AMP is more broad and far reaching than the Apple and Facebook equivalents. Google's implementation of AMP is on the open web and isn't limited to just an app like Facebook or Apple.

Update my Twitter Profile Picture on my iPhone?

AskDaveTaylor - Wed, 01/18/2017 - 13:21

Not sure why you “really need” an updated photo but perhaps you have a stylish new hairstyle or it’s one of those cloying photos that’s you and your significant other (or that’s what you want to use and you’re now frowning at my comment!!) In all cases, Twitter makes it pretty easy for you to update your profile photo or picture, whether you’re on a Desktop app, Web interface or are using the mobile app. Better yet, Android users will find that there’s a whole lotta similarity between the iOS / iPhone version of Twitter and the Android version, so this process should be just about identical.

To start, pull out your iPhone and launch the Twitter app. Tap on the “Me” button on the lower right. You’ll see something like this:

See on the top right the button labeled “Edit profile“? That’s what you want. Tap on it.

The result will be a spot where you can fine tune what’s shown on your Twitter profile:

You can sidetrack and update other things if you want, but for now, focus on your profile photo!

Notice that there’s a camera icon with a “+” superimposed over the thumbnail. Tap on it.

Now you’ll have to decide if you want to get your new photo from your camera roll or library, or take the shot live:

I’m going to take a profile photo for this demo, even though I look, um, just a bit tired and the lighting is mediocre. I choose that by tapping on “Take profile photo“.

Hey! It’s me! Notice there’s a tiny grid superimposed over the image. Probably not useful in this instance, but it can help you make sure the horizon is level as needed…

Got it framed, like your smile? Look at the camera lens itself on your iPhone (top of the screen) and tap on the camera icon on the bottom.

It’ll now show you the photo — flipped horizontally, which can be weird — and let you zoom and crop to perfect what you use:

Here’s where you can just pinch, zoom, and drag your finger around to move the crop box.

Done? Tap on “Use“.

You can easily update or modify other information, but you’re not done yet! Once you have everything just so, then tap on “Save” on the top right.

It’s okay if you tap on “New Tweet” to share your lovely new photo with everyone! In fact, I’ll do the same thing by tapping on “New Tweet” here. A quick description and a location tag because, well, Twitter. Here’s what I see:

A tap on the blue “Tweet” button and it’s sent. And in the Web version, it shows up, just as I’d hope:

And that’s how you update your Twitter profile picture or photo on your iPhone! And if you’d like, why not follow me on Twitter? Just follow @DaveTaylor and I promise, I post a lot more than just pictures of myself.

Japan To End Tourists' Toilet Trouble With Standardised Buttons

Slashdot.org - Wed, 01/18/2017 - 13:00
The Japan Sanitary Equipment Industry Association, a consortium of companies producing plumbing products has agreed to unify the iconography used on the often baffling control panels for Japanese toilets. From a report on The Guardian: Navigating the array of buttons on Japan's high-tech toilets can be a disconcerting experience for the uninitiated, who, expecting to hear a familiar flushing sound, are instead subjected to a sudden, and unwanted, cleansing of the nether regions. As Japan prepares for an influx of overseas visitors during the 2019 rugby World Cup and the Tokyo Olympics the following year, the country's sanitation industry has agreed to standardize pictograms on toilets so users know for certain if they are about to receive a blast of warm air or a jet of water. Nine manufacturers belonging to the Japan sanitary equipment industry association will soon start using the same eight symbols to explain the buttons found on their state-of-the-art WCs. At a launch event this week, the firms said they had agreed to simplify the pictography in response to complaints from tourists that they are confused by symbols that differ depending on the make of toilet. In a survey of 600 foreign visitors, a quarter said they could not understand some of the symbols that appear on the toilet buttons.

Russia Extends Edward Snowden's Asylum To 2020, To Offer Citizenship Next Year

Slashdot.org - Wed, 01/18/2017 - 12:20
Whistleblower and former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden has been allowed to remain in Russia for another three years and will next year qualify to apply for Russian citizenship. From a report on CNN: Edward Snowden's leave to remain in Russia has been extended until 2020, Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has confirmed to CNN. Snowden, a former US National Security Agency contractor, sought asylum in Russia in June 2013 after leaking volumes of information on American intelligence and surveillance operations to the media. On Tuesday, Zakharova announced an extension of a "couple of years" in a Facebook post that criticized former CIA acting director Michael Morell for an opinion piece he wrote suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin should consider returning Snowden to the United States as "the perfect inauguration gift" to President-elect Donald Trump. Snowden settled in Moscow after initially traveling to Hong Kong following his 2013 public disclosure of classified information. The Russian government granted him asylum soon after. In August 2014, Snowden received a three-year extension to his leave to remain in Russia. That extension was due to expire this year.

Thousands of Note 7 Phones Still in Use On Verizon, All Non-911 Calls To Be Rerouted To Customer Service

Slashdot.org - Wed, 01/18/2017 - 11:40
Thousands of Verizon customers continue to use the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, the carrier said. This despite the widely publicized recalls spurred by battery fire concerns and a software upgrade designed to kill the phone by preventing it from recharging. From a report: "In spite of our best efforts, there are still customers using the recalled phones who have not returned or exchanged their Note 7 to the point of purchase," a Verizon spokeswoman said. "The recalled Note 7s pose a safety risk to our customers and those around them." So now Verizon is fighting fire with fire, so to speak. The carrier plans to reroute all non-911 outgoing calls to its customer service line, and it might bill the holdouts for the full retail cost of the phone.
