Polaroid Now+ instant camera bridges the gap between classic and futuristic

Polaroid Now+ instant camera bridges the gap between classic and futuristic

Last year saw the release of the Polaroid Now, an instant camera reminiscent of the Polaroid cameras from the 1970s with some modern upgrades. The Polaroid Now camera was apparently a hit because today we're seeing Polaroid announce and release a follow-up to it. The new camera - dubbed the Polaroid Now+ - offers the same instant camera functionality as its predecessor, but this time, photographers have more options when it comes to making their pictures unique.

WhatsApp’s controversial new Terms of Service might be optional

WhatsApp’s controversial new Terms of Service might be optional

Although it wasn't completely unexpected, it still scandalized many when WhatsApp announced a policy changed that unsurprisingly favored handing some information over to its parent company, Facebook. After trying to clarify its position, the messaging platform opted to delay its implementation but eventually pushed a Terms of Service that limited features unless you accepted them. These events resulted in a number of migrations to other chat services, and WhatsApp is now reportedly making amends by making those terms optional except in one specific case.

Apple is getting into classical music streaming with Primephonic purchase

Apple is making a big move in the realm of classical music today, announcing that it has acquired classical music streaming service Primephonic. That, obviously, means Apple is looking to soup up the classical music offerings of Apple Music, as Primephonic will apparently be shut down and relaunched as a standalone Apple Music Classical app. Unfortunately for current Primephonic users, there seems to be a rather large gap between that shutdown and eventual relaunch.

Twitter Ticketed Spaces is now rolling out to some iOS users

Twitter Ticketed Spaces is now rolling out to some iOS users

After remaining almost stagnant for a few years, Twitter has picked up its pace and started implementing big changes to its social platform, perhaps spurred by the increased competition. Some of those experiments have flopped, like the short-lived Stories-like Fleets. Twitter, however, is still banking on its new audio-only features to become profitable. Of course, that will only happen if there's actual money involved, and that's exactly what Ticketed Spaces is meant to accomplish now that it's available to more users.

App Store changes reduce Apple Tax under special circumstances

App Store changes reduce Apple Tax under special circumstances

There are multiple aspects to the ongoing lawsuits against Apple's and Google's alleged monopolies over their respective app stores, but one of the biggest points has always been the "industry standard" 30% cut that these companies take. Epic Games' epic crusade against that practice has thankfully generated some changes, but those are the exception rather than the rule. Apple is once again making more exceptions with some changes to its App Store policies that it says will appease developers and settle at least one lawsuit.

What's included in the release of Samsung's "One Hand Operation+" app in the Galaxy Store makes a convincing case that Samsung's edging in on their software (inevitably starting with a Beta release) for One UI with Android 12 support. Samsung's readiness for Android 12 indicates that their own One UI 4.0 beta is right around the corner.

Chromebooks will lose Microsoft Office Android apps support next month

Chromebooks will lose Microsoft Office Android apps support next month

Chrome OS has become a sort of "one OS to rule them all" in the past years. In addition to the usual native Chrome OS apps and web apps, it has also gained support for Linux and Android apps. With no small amount of work, it can even run Windows software to some extent. That, however, doesn't mean that the experience of apps from those other platforms is on par with full-blooded Chrome OS apps, and Microsoft seems to be using that to justify ending official support for the Android versions of its Microsoft Office and Outlook apps on Chrome OS starting September.

YouTube Music Wear OS app arrives only for the Galaxy Watch 4

YouTube Music Wear OS app arrives only for the Galaxy Watch 4

The irony hasn't escaped most people's attention that Google's wearable platform doesn't have an app for Google's music streaming service. Adding insult to injury, Google did launch a YouTube Music app for smartwatches but only for Apple's smartwatches. At long last, a Wear OS version of that app has finally been announced and has started rolling out, but it still won't placate Wear OS owners because it will only serve the few dozen new owners of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series.
