UK’s Contact Tracing App Could be Replaced With a ‘Risk Rating App’ By the End of the Month

The palaver of the ill-fated contact tracing app continues, because I guess the government couldn't fuck it up enough the first time. It was originally planned as an app that logs the devices of people nearby, automating a warning system should one of them test positive for COVID-19, but that's not happening anytime soon. Instead we could get a new 'risk rating' app. Read More >>

This App is Keeping My Plants Alive, No Thanks to Me

Here’s the thing about plants: They’re gorgeous, they improve just about any space, and in most cases, they’re generally fairly easy to take care of with a little consideration to their needs. Personally, I can’t live without them, and they were some of the first things I bought after relocating to the West Coast of the U.S. recently and settling into a new home. Read More >>

Instagram Promises It’s Not Snooping on iOS Users’ Cameras, Says It’s a Bug

Apple’s iOS 14 beta has proven surprisingly handy at sussing out what apps are snooping on your phone’s data. It ratted out LinkedIn, Reddit, and TikTok for secretly copying clipboard content earlier this month, and now Instagram’s in hot water after several users reported that their camera’s “in use” indicator stays on even when they’re just scrolling through their Instagram feed.

Microsoft Edge Treating Browser Tabs as Separate Windows Is Oddly Exciting

Even though Microsoft has been causing a lot of headaches lately with feature changes, bugs, and some other unnecessary tomfoolery, it seems like it will hit a few subtle home runs according to the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build. It offers some cosmetic changes, like theme-aware tiles in Start that will change the colour of the Start tiles based on what main colour you have selected in the Personalise section and Taskbar will also start off a little cleaner, only showing you the most relevant icons based on whether not you have a linked Android phone or Xbox account. But the feature I’m most excited about is the ability to Alt + Tab through Edge browser tabs like they are separate windows. Read More >>

Accuweather Wants to Take Over from Dark Sky With its Own Minute by Minute Forecasting

Dark Sky has proven to be quite a popular weather-forecasting app, but there's been outrage since Apple bought up the service and announced it was killing all the non-Apple services. There was a little bit of good news when it was announced the Android app would live a month longer than expected, but those services are still getting killed off eventually. Hopefully Accuweather can fill in the void with its own minute-by-minute weather forecasting. Read More >>
