Facebook Workplace is out to get Slack

Facebook Workplace is out to get Slack

In almost all versions of this universe, “Facebook” and “work” are like oil and water, unless you happen to actually work at Facebook. But in Zuckerberg’s singularity, Facebook will be the driving force behind office productivity, smooth flowing operations, and cordial employee relationships. That is practically the spirit behind Facebook Workplace, formerly Facebook for Work, that the social networking giant is formally launching. Although it will never admit it, it clearly attempts to nibble at the pie largely held by Slack, even before Microsoft had a chance to do something similar with Skype.

Apple vs Samsung case reignited: $119.6 million owed (again)

An appeals court this week says that Apple is once again in a position to demand $119.6 million USD from Samsung for patent infringement. The original verdict was thrown out earlier this year - back in February - but in an 8-3 ruling the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed that order. They went on to suggest that Samsung could be liable for even more cash, depending on whether the trial judge says that Samsung did any intentional copyright infringement.

macOS Sierra starts automatic downloads, not automatic install

macOS Sierra starts automatic downloads, not automatic install

No, there’s no need to sharpen those pitchforks or light up the torches. While it may sound like Apple is doing a Microsoft, it’s really only doing a half. Apparently, starting this week, Apple will automatically download macOS 10.12, a.k.a. Sierra, on compatible Macs and MacBooks. While it might indeed feel like Apple is aggressively pushing Sierra out to more users, it is steering clear from the PR mess that was Windows 10. In other words, Apple is, at least, not installing the new macOS version automatically.

Firefox plays around with mini video, screenshot sharing features

Firefox plays around with mini video, screenshot sharing features

Web browsers have practically become operating systems and desktop environments. Just look at Chrome OS. While Firefox OS hasn’t exactly taken on a similar form, and is, in fact, practically dead, Mozilla isn’t stopping in giving its own web browser some extra power so that you won’t have to leave Firefox just for some menial tasks. Expanding its Test Pilot group of experimental features Mozilla is giving Firefox the ability to play videos in a smaller window at a corner of your screen or take and immediately share screenshots, all within Firefox, of course.

BlueStacks streams Android apps from desktop to Facebook Live

Now it is taking that a step further by offering another venue for sharing those live videos.

Like on Facebook Live itself, BlueStacks TV allows broadcasters to choose who can view their streams, be it the entire Interwebs or just their family and friends.
