    Twitter today has made a little change to its video section; next time when you're watching a full video size, you don't have to tap out to reply. Prior to this change, users had to tap out to reply. Twitter finally has fixed it.  It's SO annoying when you're watching a video full size but have to tap out to reply. Oh wait, we fixed that. 👇 pic.twitter.com/ZoMP4r5i4Y — Twitter Video (@TwitterVideo) September 19, 2018 Twitter did take a considerable amount of time to fix the annoying process of replying to Tweets while watching videos. This change comes after giving users the ability to switch between chronological and ranked timeline. The next time when you uncheck the  “Show the best tweets first” setting, Twitter will display the Tweets in reverse chronological order; non-algorithmic timeline. This change makes it evident that Twitter is working on improving its platform one step at a time though it is taking everything slowly.

    Qualcomm today announced that it is making its Device Identification, Registration, and Blocking System (DIRBS) platform as freely downloadable open-source software. The DIRBS server-based software platform can be used to help identify illegal, and stolen mobile devices in a country. The DIRBS software platform will help regulatory agencies classify devices and generate IMEI-based lists for notification, amnesty, and blocking purposes. This move comes as its efforts to combat the improper use of counterfeit, illegal and stolen devices on cellular networks.

    Google has announced that it is adding a new quick actions page in Google Drive’s left-hand navigation panel that helps you find and take action at the right time. This Priority page uses machine learning to suggest files you might need to work on and has “workspaces” to help you organize files.  Google says that the goal of Priority is to put your most important files in one place using machine learning. When you open the quick options page,  you’ll see those files, along with comments and suggested actions. You’ll be able to reply to some comments directly through the Drive interface and open full documents with one click. Google Drive's Priority page also organizes files into the workspace and lets you gather a private set of working files for ongoing easy access. Google says that users use around 10–20 files at any given time. The workspaces help make sure you can get to those files more efficiently. To build your workspace, you can use Drive's intelligent file suggestions or add files manually. You can sign up for the 'Priority' in Drive beta in case if you wish to try it out. Source

    Incognito Mode on Google Chrome lets you browse the web without maintaining a history or saving information like cookies and form inputs. Now, Google might be planning to rename the feature to 'Private Mode' Users have started noticing that the 'Open in incognito tab' option has been changed to 'Open in private tab,' which could signal that Google is about to change it for everyone. It looks like the change might be server side as the option didn't seem to have changed for us as they still read 'incognito' for me. However, things might remain as they are like before since these kinds of tests are nothing new to Google.  The Chrome Help page already has 'private' references quite heavily, so that could be a sign of things to come. This change comes after recent change to Keep which got re-branded to 'Keep Notes.' Source

However, a user guide included with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max has references about the AirPower, suggesting that Apple has not yet shelved the much-anticipated charging mat.  But they definitely mention it in the new iPhone XS Max manual pic.twitter.com/qJO7kVc8bi — Gavin Stephens (@ccgavind) September 20, 2018 The user guide included with the iPhone XS and XS Max clearly shows a passage mentioning the AirPower. It reads: "Place iPhone with the screen facing up on AirPower or a Qi-certified wireless charger. You can also use the Lightning connector to charge iPhone and connect accessories." It is unclear why Apple mentioned AirPower in the manual, it perhaps suggests that the company might have had plans to ship the charging accessory alongside the new iPhones.

It's been more than a year since the device was first announced. Apple wants to give users the ability to place any of their devices anywhere on the charging mat to begin a charge and the ability to charge the iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods ...
