There are moments in life when your phone's camera is crucial: your child's first steps, or their graduation from high school, for instance.But your phone is likely full of stuff, and you could end up facing this obnoxious message:There are few things as frustrating in our convenience-filled world as repeatedly running into your phone's storage limit.It means an action as simple as taking a photo is delayed while you free up space ... often by deleting old photos.For most people hitting that storage limit, there's one culprit: photos.They take up a lot of space, and you take a lot of them — you might even be taking "HDR" photos (which are even larger files than standard photos).You have two main options:Buy a phone with more internal storage, which costs more money.Regularly offload photos and delete them from your phone, which costs your time.But there's a third, totally free, amazingly simple option: Google Photos.Here's everything you should know about Google's secret-best service.

Last week, a smirking, overeager guy in a Burger King polo and hat appeared on TV and managed to hijack countless Google Home speakers in a matter of seconds."You're watching a 15-second Burger King ad, which is unfortunately not enough time to explain all the fresh ingredients in the Whopper sandwich.They're hoping to take advantage of a rare new channel for ads that sits in the home and can speak directly to millions of Google Home and Amazon Echo owners."All our clients sense something's going on," said Jason Hartley, head of search and paid social at advertising firm 360i."Ideas are bubbling underneath the surface, but we are in a gimmicky phase until we discover more utility for how users are using these devices."Early adopters of smart home devices like the Home and Echo tend to be tech-focused and wealthier, a highly desirable audience for brands.

Celebrities have been warned over misleading Instagram posts that are not clearly marked as promotions after complaints that scores of high profile users could be breaching consumer rights.The US and UK are clamping down on the way influential users, who often boast tens of millions of followers, share paid-for material on the Facebook-owned social network.On Wednesday night the Federal Trade Commission issued warning letters to 90 celebrities urging them to disclose when posts are sponsored clearly and high up in the message.The UK watchdog, the Advertising Standards Agency, confirmed that it has also been cracking down on the phenomenon, working with companies and high profile users to ensure guidelines are met.The most recent warning in the US comes after rights organisation Public Citizen raised concerns with the watchdog about the endorsement of 113 celebrities, including Rihanna, Rita Ora and Kylie Jenner.As well as advising Instagram influencers what kind of posts require disclosure, the Commission told the celebrities they need to flag that content is sponsored early on in the post.

One of the Microsoft Windows vulnerabilities used to spread the Stuxnet worm that targeted Iran remained the most widely exploited software bug in 2015 and 2016 even though the bug was patched years earlier, according to a report published by antivirus provider Kaspersky Lab.In 2015, 27 percent of Kaspersky users who encountered any sort of exploit were exposed to attacks targeting the critical Windows flaw indexed as CVE-2010-2568.In 2016, the figured dipped to 24.7 percent, but still ranked the highest.The code-execution vulnerability is triggered by plugging a booby-trapped USB drive into a vulnerable computer.The self-replication and lack of any dependence on a network connection made the vulnerability ideal for infecting air-gapped machines.Equation Group combined the .LNK exploit with other attacks that were also zerodays at the time to propagate a worm dubbed Fanny.

Yext, a 10-year-old enterprise tech business that manages “digital knowledge” — mmmkay!— started trading this morning on the New York Stock Exchange at $14 per share, up by more than 27 percent from its IPO price of $11 per share.The company was valued at around $940 million last night, MarketWatch reports, after selling 10.5 million shares to investors for approximately $115 million.Yext originally set its expected price range between $8 and $10 per share.Based in New York, Yext helps large chains like T-Mobile, Denny’s, and Ben and Jerry’s manage their individual listings across search engines, directories, social networks, and apps.Those big-name clients help explain Yext’s nearly $1 billion valuation, despite the company’s growing losses.Yext’s IPO won’t make or break the New York tech scene, but the U.S. financial hub has struggled to maintain its image as a blossoming tech city since the days of Mayor Bloomberg.A successful Yext IPO will go a long way toward helping the city assert itself, as Los Angeles attracts hype with Snapchat and Hollywood-friendly businesses in areas like virtual reality.

Amazon has introduced new tools for parents to help them stay better informed about what their kids are watching, reading, and doing within the FreeTime service.The company is making a parental dashboard available, along with discussion cards, in the hopes that it’ll get adults to “talk to their kids.”Parents don’t need to download a separate app to use the dashboard — they can just log in using their Amazon credentials to see all the profiles that have been previously set up in FreeTime.This is the first time that such analytics have been provided, and the tool provides a snapshot of how much screen time a child has used and how that breaks down across books, videos, apps, and websites.Parents can also drill down deeper into any category to understand their child’s reading activity over the past seven to 90 days.Amazon FreeTime is a kid-friendly service aimed at those between three and 12 years of age.Children are able to explore through whitelisted books, videos, apps, games, websites, and YouTube videos through their account.Kurt Beidler, the company’s director of kids and family, told VentureBeat that the goal is to “help kids be independent, play, explore, and learn without help from their parents.” Amazon believes that caretakers will value the peace of mind of knowing that their children won’t be exposed to violence, inappropriate content, or excessive screen time when using FreeTime.Beidler stated that more than 10 million kids use FreeTime, along with the premium version FreeTime Unlimited.

Ten years after the half-baked software dumpster fire known as Windows Vista was unleashed on an unsuspecting public, the nightmare is finally over.Microsoft is discontinuing support today, meaning that no new updates or security fixes will be issued for Vista, and users will have to change operating systems, or be left with a buggy, insecure pile of crap.Come to think of it, maybe nothing’s actually changing.It’s important to remember how ubiquitous XP was at the time, to understand why Vista was such a big deal for Microsoft.Remember the first time you logged on to see rolling green fields, or fired up the Pinball game?That’s what Microsoft had to follow up with Vista.

is escalating efforts to reprimand the digital duopoly of Google and Facebook with an impassioned message about the “dysfunctional and socially destructive” digital ecosystem versus the quality of authenticated news environments.“Google’s commodification of content knowingly, wilfully undermined provenance for profit.That was followed by the Facebook stream, with its journalistic jetsam and fake flotsam.Together, the two most powerful news publishers in human history have created an ecosystem that is dysfunctional and socially destructive,” wrote Robert Thomson, chief executive of News Corp, wrote in the today’s (10 April) Times newspaper.“As for news, institutional neglect has left us perched on the edge of the slippery slope of censorship.There is no Silicon Valley tradition, as there is at great newspapers, of arguing over rights and wrongs, of fretful, thoughtful agonising over social responsibility and freedom of speech.”

Facebook’s attempt to copy Snapchat may have backfired, as its Stories feature is a ghost town a week after rolling out.Now, in what I can only assume is a guilt-trip, Facebook displays faded images of people who aren’t posting to Stories in the bar at the top of the app.Only one of my friends consistently uses Facebook Stories, and even at its peak post-release only about four friends ever used it at all.But I tend to keep my Friends list small and tidy, so I thought maybe it was just me.It's literally just me & Facebook using facebook stories pic.twitter.com/9E36ck1B9Y— Sam King (@Samkingftw) April 5, 2017
