INSTAGRAM: from today it is possible to report fake news (even if only in the USA, for now)

instagram

The problem of disinformation through social media is enormous but little is done to combat it, also because it is a headache of extreme complexity. Managing billions of contents and distinguishing the true from the false is something that goes beyond any automatism, which is why the giants of the web have been working for years to understand how to deal with the issue.

Small steps are always better than nothing: in these days Instagram (source Engadget) puts a new functionality for US users, with which it is possible to reporter false news. In the settings, those that are accessed by touching the three vertical dots, you can now report a content as “inappropriate” and then specified “false information”. What happens then? The source isn’t clear: we know that if the report proves to be founded, the post will not be removed but will lose a lot of visibility. The creator of the offending post will not be notified.

WhatsApp: unlocking with fingerprints on Android coming

WhatsApp will introduce fingerprint authentication to block access to content to unauthorized persons.

The WhatsApp Beta Info site has found how the beta version 2.19.221 supports the new feature but it is necessary to reinstall the application if it is not shown. If it is visible, you will have to wait before you can use it.

To activate this feature you will need to go to: settings -> account -> privacy. Among the options that will be available in WhatsApp there will be the choice to block the app immediately, after 1 minute or 30 minutes. Furthermore it will be possible to choose whether or not to show information in notifications.

It is not clear when fingerprint unlocking will arrive officially and for everyone on Android. The latest information in this regard dates back to January 2019, but now we are very near to the release date of the whatsapp version for all users. The only condition is to have a fingerprint reader on the smartphone.

The Trump administration postpones duties on Chinese products in mid-December

trump-ansa

The application of commercial duties for products imported from China to the USA postponed for three months: the 10% tax is therefore postponed, and even removed entirely for certain types of products.

Originally the new import taxes had to become operational starting from next September 1st. The new decision seems to be designed not to affect North American consumers, and the retailer industry in general, at a time like the one before Christmas, which historically sees a large number of electronic products invade the market.

The list of products with duties moved in mid-December includes mobile phones, laptops, consoles, screens, some types of games as well as products related to clothing and footwear. For some other products the tariffs have been completely canceled, but at the moment it has not been given a detailed list of what these products are.

MAX PEZZALI – Welcome to Miami (south beach)

 

LYRIC

Con le cuffie antirumore
Volevo dormire ma i bambini urlano
Non vedo l’ora di arrivare
Continuo a guardare la rotta sul video
Finalmente atterriamo
Adesso corriamo che chissà che fila c’è
Al controllo immigrazione
Il dito, la scansione, have a nice holiday
La navetta autonoleggio
Dai, pensavo peggio mezz’oretta e poi si va
Metto sul navigatore
Dove devo andare inserire la città
E però mi fa impressione
Leggere quel nome scritto sopra al display
Bienveidos a Miami
Welcome italiani, have a nice holiday
E poi finalmente ci siamo, arriviamo a South Beach
Anche se stanchi
Siamo già caldi, più caldi dei Miami Heat
È qui davanti
Guarda l’oceano un po’ verde, un po’ azzurro, un po’ blu
Come ai Caraibi
L’America del Nord si incontra con quella del Sud
Se habla Spanglish
Lamborghini a passo d’uomo
Che fa un gran casino e spara giù una raffica
Ta-ta-ta l’imitatore
Fonderà il motore se non l’avrà fuso già
Si va tutti sulla Lincoln Road
Entro nell’Apple Store cerco le novità
Tutto uguale più o meno
A quello di Rozzano almeno c’è il Wi-Fi che va
Oggi piove niente mare
Cosa si può fare? Andiamo nello shopping mall
Sono quasi tutti outlet
Delle grandi marche qui facciamo il carico
Tre t-shirt prezzo di due
Stampe e fantasie che forse mai mi metterò
Ho già l’ansia che mi sale
Le dovrò imbarcare chissà quanto pesano
E poi finalmente ci siamo, arriviamo a South Beach
Anche se stanchi
Siamo già caldi, più caldi dei Miami Heat
È qui davanti
Guarda l’oceano un po’ verde, un po’ azzurro, un po’ blu
Come ai Caraibi
L’America del Nord si incontra con quella del Sud
Se habla Spanglish
Sabbia a colori, le palme di cocco
Tre gradi all’interno all’esterno trentotto
Sole tramonto dal lato sbagliato
Notti da vivere tutte d’un fiato
Flamingo rosa e alligatore
Ponti a Key West che attraversano il mare
Caffè cubano di Little Avana
Murales a Wynwood e alma latina
E poi finalmente ci siamo, arriviamo a South Beach
Anche se stanchi
Siamo già caldi, più caldi dei Miami Heat
È qui davanti
Guarda l’oceano un po’ verde, un po’ azzurro, un po’ blu
Come ai Caraibi
L’America del Nord si incontra con quella del Sud
Se habla Spanglish
Poi finalmente ci siamo, arriviamo a South Beach
Anche se stanchi
Siamo già caldi, più caldi dei Miami Heat
È qui davanti
Guarda l’oceano un po’ verde, un po’ azzurro, un po’ blu
Come ai Caraibi
L’America del Nord si incontra con quella del Sud

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN – THERE GOES MY MIRACLE

 

LYRIC

Sunrise, sundown
The streets gone golden brown
Auburn skies above
I’m searching for my love
I’m searching for my love
There goes my miracle
Walking away, walking away
There goes my miracle
Walking away, walking away
Moonlight, moon bright
Where’s my lucky star tonight
The streets lost in lamp light
Then suddenly inside
Suddenly inside
There goes my miracle
Walking away, walking away
There goes my miracle
Walking away, walking away
Look what you have done
Look what you have done
Look what you have done
Look what you have done
Look what you have done
Look what you have done
Look what we’ve done
Look what we’ve done
Look what we’ve done
Heartache, heartbreak
Love gives, love takes
The book of love holds its rules
Disobeyed by fools
Disobeyed by fools
There goes my miracle
Walking away, walking away
There goes my miracle
Walking away, walking away
Walking away, walking away
There goes my miracle
Sunrise, sundown

Whatsapp will be fordidden for minors under 16 in Europe

europes

In Europe WhatsApp will be banned for minors under 16, as can be read in the terms of use and as evidenced by WA Beta Info.

In the European Union (including Italy) and probably in other countries of the continent, you must be at least 16 years old or be explicitly authorized by a parent or legal guardian to use the service. Instead, in the rest of the world, the age is 13 years. It is not yet clear how Facebook, a company that owns WhatsApp, will ensure that this part of the law.

In addition to sharing data between the various social networks of the Zuckerberg network (ie Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram) there could be explicit requests for authorization to use which, once accepted, if not respected will be considered payable by the users and no longer payable by the society. This would allow Facebook to remove the legal problems that could derive from it by giving to users or parents the complete responsibility.
