Netflix’s next original series might feature Barack Obama

Barack Obama Netflix

In something of a modern twist on the fireside chats made popular by FDR in the 1930s and 1940s, it’s starting to look like former President Barack Obama will soon have his own show on Netflix. Or on Amazon. Or, perhaps, on whatever TV streaming service Apple eventually rolls out. In short, Obama now finds himself at the center of a bidding war between a number of media titans looking to enhance their catalog of original content.

While specific details are few and far in between,  The New York Times reports that Obama’s new show will provide him with a “global platform” to talk to the American people about whatever he wants in a relaxed and unfiltered setting. Notably, the report claims that the show could focus on “inspirational stories” or, just as easily, hot takes on whatever happens to be the pertinent political issue of the week.

How to turn off Instagram’s new feature that tells others when you were last online

Instagram Activity Status

In an effort to keep its direct messaging system up-to-date with the likes of Facebook Messenger and other chat apps, Instagram this week debuted a new feature that allows you to see when your friends were last online. In order to test the feature yourself, just open the Instagram app, tap on the Direct button at the top right of the screen and you can see when everyone that you have messaged within the app last logged on.

Only people who you follow and those that you’ve messaged in the past will be able to see your activity status, but the feature is turned on by default. In other words, without your prior knowledge, all of your connections on Instagram can now see the last time you opened the app. The good news is that you can toggle the feature off.

NYC New Year’s Eve Ceremony To Feature #MeToo Founder

NEW YORK (AP) — An activist who started a “Me Too” campaign a decade ago to raise awareness about sexual violence will start this year’s ceremonial ball drop at Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

The Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment say Tarana Burke will push the crystal button that officially begins the 60-second countdown to the new year.

Numerous women have spoken out publicly since October about sexual misconduct by dozens of high-profile men in entertainment, media, business and sports.

A flurry of tweets, Instagram and Facebook posts ensued after actress-activist Alyssa Milano urged victims to respond with the phrase “me too.” Milano initially wasn’t aware of Burke’s earlier campaign and has since publicly credited her.

Burke says in a statement that 2018 will bring new momentum to the movement.

The 2018 SAG Awards Will Feature Only Women Presenters

Award season 2018 has gotten off to a rip-roaring start, with both the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards making their nomination announcements during the second week of December 2017. While there have been some surprises and snubs in regard to who exactly got nominated, there’s one big piece of award season news that is hard to argue isn’t actually a great thing.

On Wednesday, Dec. 13, The Hollywood Reporter announced that the 2018 SAG Awards would have an all-female presenter lineup, which is a major step forward and a major first in award show history. A move of this kind certainly sends a strong message about the vision this award show has for the new year, but it also shows those behind the scenes are dedicated to giving women in Hollywood a true spotlight and not one that’s given away half-heartedly. Hell, yeah!

More: The SAG Awards Just Recruited Kristen Bell, & It Was the Best Decision Ever

According to the official statement released to THR from SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell, “Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman. [Having presenters all be female] is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”

This conscious effort to let women’s voices be heard not just in acceptance speeches but also while presenting the awards is certainly unique, and it’s really, as previously mentioned, an unprecedented move. Much like MTV’s decision to create gender-neutral award categories at the 2017 MTV Movie Awards earlier this year, the 2018 SAG Awards are actively reminding us that it’s not just a man’s world and honorable events like awards show should be emblematic of that.

More: The SAG Awards Nominees Are in, & It’s a Big Change From the Golden Globes

“How many times has a woman walked into a room of predominantly men? We thought, maybe for one night, it’ll be more than 50/50 [onstage],” Connell noted to THR in regard to the importance of giving the focus to women. She did also acknowledge that she hopes there aren’t any bad reactions from the men involved, going on to say, “We don’t want to slight the men who have given great performances this year — knowing our membership, I’m sure our men will embrace the opportunity to honor women.”

Sadly, we have no idea which women have been selected to present at the 2018 SAGs, although there is some promise that those in charge of choosing presenters will indeed have their eye on a broad range of women. This is evident from the fact that Kristen Bell has been snagged as the show’s host (another first for the historically host-less event!) and it was only women — Niecy Nash (who stars on TNT’s Claws) and Olivia Munn (best known from her work on HBO’s The Newsroom and X-Men: Apocalypse) — who announced the nominees early Wednesday morning.

More: The 2018 Golden Globe Nominations Are Full of Surprises & Snubs

Connell’s official statement closed out on a hopeful note, and it’s one we should all keep in mind while we celebrate this exciting news. “It’s still an awards show and a celebration — we’re not here to preach to anybody. To me, just having some of these fabulous women onstage sends its own message.”

Microsoft’s new ‘Sets’ could be the best Windows feature in years

TwitterFacebook

Windows is about to get a serious productivity upgrade.

Microsoft is testing a new “Sets” feature that allows you to group multiple applications into the same window, similar to how you would organize tabs in a browser.

Microsoft is only teasing a very early preview of the feature for now — it’s rolling out to a small subset of Microsoft’s Insider program that seeds betas of new Windows versions to those who opt-in — but it’s already clear the feature will be a huge change.

While Windows 10 has had multitasking features like Task View baked in from the very beginning, these features have been more focused on making it easier to switch between applications. Sets promises to cut out many of the extra steps required by app switching by letting you group multiple apps in the same window. Read more…

The Galaxy S8 seems to be struggling with a very basic feature

Galaxy S8 Text Messages

Sending and receiving text messages is one of the most basic things you can do on a mobile phone. You don’t need an iPhone or Android device for that, but the instant messaging experience is better on smartphones, where you have various alternatives for texting with your family and friends.

That’s why it’s somewhat strange to hear that the Galaxy S8 suffers from an unexpected text messaging issue.

Google just added 30 languages to its voice-to-text feature in Gboard

TwitterFacebook

Google announced today its adding 30 new languages to voice typing in its popular keyboard app, Gboard.

Now, people who speak Gujarati (India) or Nepali (Nepal) can simply talk directly to their phone rather than having to type as long as Gboard is set as the phone’s default keyboard.

The new update will bring the total number of supported languages in Gboard up to 119 varieties and the additions primarily focus on emerging markets like places in India and Africa.

But that’s not all. Following the update, people in the U.S who use Gboard will also be able to write their favorite emojis by just describing them out loud. For example, if you say something like “winky face emoji” to the app, it will actually type out the winking emoji for you. Read more…
