Apple iMessage

Bring on the Emojis, invisible ink messages and more!  Soon, your iPhone will have emoji predictions as you type and when you tap the emoji button, words that can be emoji-fied will be highlighted. All you have to do is tap to emoji-fy your message. Bubble effects lets you send messages in a whole new way — slam text, loud text, gentle text, Invisible ink  — which allows you to reveal a concealed message or photo with a swipe of your finger —  and more. You can also draw images via digital touch, send reactions to texts, write messages in your own handwriting and send full-screen effects.

 

watchOS 3 is on the way!

watchOS 3 is seven times faster. Rather than simply waiting for your apps to load, thanks to watchOS 3’s Quick Start feature and Instant Launch, everything on your watch is going to load faster than ever. You can expect this lightning-fast update to launch in the fall.

Apple Music is getting redesigned. AGAIN.

With Apple Music’s redesign, you’ll have access to lyrics, a daily playlist curated just For You and other new features like Browse, which will allow you to discover new music.

Photos in iOS 10 = PURE AWESOMENESS. 

Photos in iOS 10 will be able to do Face + Object + Scene Recognition and sort your photos accordingly. There’s also a new Memories feature that will aggregate events and trips for you, and will even automatically string together your clips to make videos for you. Oh, and those super cool Live Photos Apple introduced back in September are now editable.

 

 

Apple Pay is coming to the web. Soon Apple Pay is going to be as ubiquitous as PayPal or Visa. When you’re shopping online, you’ll be able to select and pay with Apple Pay. Just have your iPhone or Apple Watch handy, then use your thumb to checkout.

Siri is coming to the Mac

Siri is coming to the Mac. You read that right. Siri is coming to your computer and will soon be able to pull up files with just the sound of your voice.

 

In other news, in order to make the OS more cohesive with its other operating systems, Apple has decided to change the Mac operating system name to macOS. Apple, which has a long tradition of naming its Mac operating systems after California landmarks, is calling the newest edition Sierra.

The public beta of Sierra will be available in July, but will officially launch in the fall.

What updates are you looking forward to in the new macOS systems this fall?  Share your thoughts below!

Instagram’s New Changes Are Causing Some Users To Say Buh-Bye!

December 18th, 2012 by Christen

Are you on Instagram?  You may want to re-think your decision after reading this…

Instagram has just released a few new updates that’ll be taking affect next year in January.  (Via Instagram)  “We’re making some improvements and updating our Privacy Policy & Terms of Service. Read more about our changes.”  < — Chances are, you’ve seen this message, but didn’t investigate what those changes mean to you and your Instagram account. Discover why these “improvements” are causing some Instagram users to say bye-bye for good.

 

1. Your data will be used for ads. Ads are coming to Instagram. This isn’t a surprise. However, the new terms outline the fact the ads will use your data, photos and even the metadata (read: geo-location data), for targeting purposes. As The Social Times says, “Get ready for some ads starring your friends and you.” In fact, your data may be used as a way to endorse sponsored content or promotions. This part is described in the Rights section of the new terms.  IT GETS WORSE.  Ads may not be marked clearly. You may not even know that ads are ads. (new Instagram Rights section says:  “You acknowledge that we may not always identify paid services, sponsored content, or commercial communications as such.”)

“Wait a minute… Instagram ads will suck up my data…AND I MAY NOT EVEN KNOW WHICH UNIDENTIFIABLE ADS ARE RESPONSIBLE?”

 

2. Instagram can use your photos. You own the content you post, but Instagram can use any of it without any issues. The Rights section says specifically:  “you hereby grant to Instagram a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the Content that you post.”

“How did my picture get used in this ad? I’ve never used viagra in my life! – What if my friends see this!?”

 

 

3. Be aware of your responsibility when you post new photos. You are responsible for any issues involving content you post, not Instagram.  Instagram does not have any obligation to prescreen, monitor, edit, or remove any Content. If your Content violates these Terms of Use, you may bear legal responsibility for that Content.

“Wait, what happened to my photo!? I just uploaded it yesterday and now it’s gone!”

 

4. Backup your photos. You might want to back up your photos periodically. There’s no guarantee they’ll always be there. As the new Rights section writes:  Instagram is not a backup service and you agree that you will not rely on the Service for the purposes of Content backup or storage. Instagram will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services, or the loss of any Content.

 

 

 

Have you begun weighing the pros and cons of Instagram’s new terms of service?  Is Instagram right for using your photos, data plans and more in exchange for you using it’s service?  Are you thinking about quitting Instagram and using other photo sharing apps like Flickr instead?  Share below…
