    by (Deleted account) on December 3, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    On Monday, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a livestream with Dr. Anthony Fauci to talk about the coronavirus. The Facebook comments on the video quickly filled up with musings from conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers. The gist of these comments: "I'm not getting your fucking vaccine, you quack.” Fast forward to Thursday. Facebook has announced that it will now remove false claims about COVID-19 vaccines from its platforms. “Given the recent news that COVID-19 vaccines will soon be rolling out around the world, over the coming weeks we will start removing false claims about these vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts on Facebook and Instagram,” reads the company’s statement.

    Holiday movie nights just got a lot more fun with the official launch of Hulu Watch Party.

"With many families practicing social distancing this year, it's more important than ever to find new ways to connect with friends and family this holiday season," the company wrote in a blog post. "Hulu is here to help by offering our viewers the opportunity to enjoy a shared entertainment experience with their loved ones from afar."

    by Kim Lyons on December 3, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    WristcamA strap for an Apple Watch equipped with front- and rear-facing cameras is finally launching after nearly four years in development. The Wristcam has an 8-megapixel camera that can shoot 1080p video and take stills in 4K resolution and a 2-megapixel camera for selfies. The company says you’ll also be able to use it as a video walkie-talkie with real-time live-streaming. Those might be serviceable cameras, but they’re not likely to replace your iPhone camera. The company sent over a sample of images shot by the Wristcam, which are pretty decent, if a bit underwhelming in the details.
