As emoji grow more popular, the “language” also risks fragmentation | Ars Technica

As emoji grow more popular, the “language” also risks fragmentation | Ars Technica: "Emoji have become important. They’ve permeated our conversations and our messaging apps and our popular culture to a degree that no one could have anticipated just a few years ago, and when your phone or computer gets an update, new emoji are often featured prominently in the release notes or even announced in their own press releases.

That the “language” is so universal and recognizable is due in large part to the Unicode Consortium, the group of major tech companies in charge of defining and approving new emoji (and dozens of other character sets, besides)."

A whole new level to "you misunderstood my text message."

Apple may be working on a Snapchat-like video app for 2017 | Ars Technica

Apple may be working on a Snapchat-like video app for 2017 | Ars Technica: "The video app sounds a lot like Snapchat in terms of features: users can record a video and then apply filters to it, doodle, or place text over it, and then send it to friends via the contact list or existing social networks like Twitter."

This doesn't sound like Snapchat at all.

From The Wirecutter: The best uninterruptible power supply (UPS) | Ars Technica

From The Wirecutter: The best uninterruptible power supply (UPS) | Ars TechnicaAfter researching more than two dozen models, interviewing experts, and having an electrical engineer test our top candidates, we found that the CyberPower CP685AVR is the best uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for people who want to keep a home network running during a blackout of an hour or less.
Nor is it expensive.

A cheap, easy way to add 200GB of storage to your MacBook

A cheap, easy way to add 200GB of storage to your MacBook: "We could all use an extra couple hundred gigs of space on our MacBook, but no one is excited about having a bulky and expensive external drive sticking out of their computer. Hence the appeal of Nifty’s MiniDrive, which seamlessly adds up to 200GB to your MacBook without altering the laptop’s sleek profile."

Nice.

Today in Apple history: OS X Jaguar roars onto Mac

Today in Apple history: OS X Jaguar roars onto Mac: "The object-oriented, UNIX-based OS X was one of the biggest things Steve Jobs brought to Apple after his return, building on the NeXTSTEP operating system he had developed while running NeXT. "

Seems like yesterday I was diving into CoreGraphics for the first time.

FaceTime video chat competitor Google Duo released for iOS, Android

FaceTime video chat competitor Google Duo released for iOS, Android: "Google Duo was announced in May, and is cross-platform between iOS and Android. No Google account is necessary — connections are made between users' phone numbers after a one-time SMS verification."

Not sure it's a competitor to FaceTime, which only runs on Apple platforms. More like a competitor to Skype which is platform-agnostic.

Apple thought to be seeking vast expanses of office space in Seattle

Apple thought to be seeking vast expanses of office space in Seattle: "Real estate companies in the Pacific Northwest are allegedly "buzzing" that a large California business, presumably Apple, is eyeing Seattle for potential expansion."

I can already hear the talent suction from MSFT & AMZN.
