Nothing is more infuriating that going to a website with a video playing on the background. That is what Facebook is exactly doing. They are now playing videos on pages that you open. Sounds like they are more concerned more about counting their video views than the actual user experience. At least they’re trying to be nice by muting the audio if you scroll down past the video. Facebook is giving you the option to have the volume ON automatically, but why would you do that? If you don’t want videos playing in the background at all, you can turn it OFF by going to the Settings and setting Auto-Play Videos to Off. That’s what I would do.
Periscope announced today that you can now live stream in landscape mode. This a vast improvement over portrait mode which is very odd format to look at since most videos are in landscape. This should have had this feature from the git-go when they launched it back in March. It’s a feature long sought after. Finally, it’s here.
Oh yes. The iPad 2 is here. What you need to know in 100 words or less. It’s thin, it comes with a new dual-core A5 CPU, two colors: black or white, you have choice between AT&T or Verizon, front and rear cameras, a HDMI output, a foldable cover that doubles as a stand, runs on iOS 4.3, and it’s the same price as before. Yea! Now if you need to know the nitty gritty of the new iPad 2, I suggest you visit the Apple website and learn more about it. In the meantime, enjoy the video below.
