Today in a statement, the social network said that some of its content partners have complained of third-party users swiping their videos and uploading them without permission, among other things. This has prompted Facebook to take a look at its rights management for videos and ways it can be improved. That work has been ongoing, and leads to today’s statement: the social network says that it has established the foundation of that rights management, and it’ll be using audio fingerprinting to help put the squeeze on unauthorized video uploading, as well as video matching technology and more.

OnePlus 2 vs Moto X Style – which one “potentially” deserves your money?

Last week we saw not one but two mid-year racehorses make their way into the smartphone tracks. One an established veteran in the industry, the other almost a David in comparison, both putting out mouthwatering offers. But at the end of the day, unless you have the money to spare, you will choose only one. Is the OnePlus 2 really worthy of all the hype the startup generated?
