Google auto-delete for Location History goes live on Android and iOS

Before Facebook grabbed the unwanted spotlight, Google was the one always on the hot seat over privacy concerns. To its credit, the company has made it easier for users to control what data Google gathers from them, even if it continues to collect that data. Its latest attempt at simplifying those controls is to automatically delete the location data it gathered from your Web activities. That is, if you remember to set it in the first place.

WhatsApp Status will soon offer sharing to other apps like Facebook

WhatsApp Status will soon offer sharing to other apps like Facebook

One of the advantages of being a part of a larger company is the ease of sharing with other parts of the company. At the same time, that could be problematic if your parent company happens to be named “Facebook”. WhatsApp has been particularly careful to distance itself from its owner but its upcoming Status-sharing feature could raise concerns once again. Fortunately, at least according to the company, it isn’t doing anything new on iOS or Android to implement it.

Telegram update adds private local chat, removes need for phone numbers

The best alternative to basically any other chat app in the world today is Telegram - that's my word. Today they've added several features that push the most-secret chat app into the future, including the ability to transfer group ownership, a new theme picker, and a new set of Siri shortcuts. Some of these updates work with iOS only for now, but will be on Android soon. Except Siri, of course, because Siri is an iPhone joint.

These iPhone 11 pictures just changed my mind on absurd design

These iPhone 11 pictures just changed my mind on absurd design

Today I happened upon the work of an artist by the name of Hasan Kaymak, and I've seen the next iPhone in a couple different iterations. The dangers in seeing leaked hardware are many - one of them is discovering the industrial design of a device in an unflattering light. Apple's been suffering from this situation for about a half-decade - but, lucky them, there are top-notch next-gen designers out in the wild looking to make a name for themselves in taking leaked concepts and making them look glorious.

Hearthstone nixing two cards we’ve taken for granted too long

Hearthstone nixing two cards we’ve taken for granted too long

Two of Hearthstone's most powerful cards, Vanish and Mind Blast, will soon head for the Hall of Fame. These cards have been abnormally powerful in the most basic sense of the phrase since I started playing the game - they're so good, they'd be in almost every deck against which I played, regardless of intent. They were so powerful, it would seem, that the creators of Hearthstone have decided they needed to be retired.
