An app that can simplify the adoption process could be enticing to prospective parents looking to avoid red tape, but whether it can deliver on its promise is another story.Adoptly is an app that simplifies the adoption process of children to the same mechanic that made Tinder so popular.There s no doubt that Tinder s swipe left or right process is popular — it s a feature that has been integrated into a plethora of various apps such as BarkBuddy, a pet adoption app where you can swipe left or right on dogs you dislike or like.More: Tinder pranks CES with its multi-user VR headset for couplesSwiping left or right on a child reduces a part of the adoption process to looks, but Nawrocki says that s not what the company is doing — and in fact, Adoptly isn t inventing anything new.Adoptly basically acts like an aggregator of pre-existing agency and network databases, those that are already in existence, and it pulls in those profiles that have already been legally preapproved, the app s co-founder told Digital Trends.

Di Digital/Silicon Valley I oktober förra året presenterade Google två nya mobiler, Pixel och Pixel XL.Bolagets tidigare telefoner har sålts i små kvantiteter, men den här gången skulle det bli ändring på det.Google har meddelat att man lägger mer pengar att marknadsföra sin hårdvara och reklamfilmerna med Pixel duggar tätt.Trots det finns mobilen inte i lager och vissa av modellerna går knappt att få tag på.Pixel kommer med två storlekar på minnet, 32GB och 128GB, och den större modellen med mer minne har inte gått att köpa via Googles nätbutik sedan den 30 november, skriver The Verge.Läs också: Här är Googles Iphone-utmanare

That thing looks pretty specialist.Anyone with £6199 going spare - and that s for the body only.For that money, you could get the pro-level Nikon D5 DSLR and a lens, with change.But then the GFX 50S is a medium-format camera, rather than full frame, and medium format never comes cheap.Plus, the D5 has a mirror - and the GFX 50S doesn t.What s wrong with mirrors?

iRig Acoustic Stage is a tiny plectrum-shaped mic you clip to an acoustic guitar s sound hole.Its lead connects to a pre-amp the size of a deck of cards, which lets you fiddle with tones and volume.There s USB audio out, for connecting to a computer or iOS device, and AUX in to blend your existing pick-up system with iRig Acoustic Stage.This means you can capture acoustic guitar in a home studio, without the result sounding like you were recording in a biscuit tin.And you can play live, without sitting infuriatingly still in the sweet spot of your microphone set-up.It can t. In fact, nothing can help if you ve such delusions.

Wild vampire bats have been found feeding on humans in Brazil for the first time – and they could be spreading disease.Researchers from the Federal University of Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil, led by Enrico Bernard, analysed 70 faeces samples from a colony of vampire bats, named Diphylla ecudata, that reside in Catimbau National Park in northeast Brazil.The team extracted DNA from 15 of the samples and discovered three of them had traces of blood from humans.The research was published in the journal Acta Chiropterologica.Previously, these hairy-legged bats were thought to exclusively feed on birds - in particular, guans and tinamous.This is because the creatures are adapted to process fat, the main component of bird blood, instead of the thicker, high-protein blood found in mammals, like humans.

Marketers are used to the concept of split-testing possible content and communication changes to determine a winning combination.The problem with a standard A/B split test is that it can still leave many of your customers with a sub-optimal experience because you re assuming that all of your customers fall into the same demographic.And in today s marketing, generalization is the enemy.Consumers now want relevant communications and messages that are tailored to them.In fact, 77.5 percent of digital natives want you to give them a truly personalized experience, both on your website and within messages, and that percentage remains high for other age groups, too.To try to solve this problem of serving content changes to everyone indiscriminately, FollowAnalytics has announced today its new Mobile Optimization Suite, which includes Optimize AI, a new split-testing technology powered by machine learning.Mobile Optimization Suite includes various new tools to help marketers get the most from iterating, improving, and measuring the success of changes to websites, communications, in-app messages, and push notifications.It automatically determines the sample size for your test to ensure statistically significant results, while making sure the experiment finishes as early as possible.But most importantly, the suite includes segment-based optimization that allows marketers to run different tests and serve relevant content to audiences based on their personal needs.The segments used by Optimize AI are of two types,  Samir Addamine, founder and chairman at FollowAnalytics, told me.Segments can be defined by the customer, based on mobile data and any external data coming from their CRM or other system of record.

Rugged phones are gaining more and more traction and it makes sense, because for an active outdoorsy person such phone can be a blessing with all the resistances and toughness.Not being afraid about possible breaking your phone with some rougher handling can be really invaluable.And models like Homtom HT20 are pretty affordable too as a bonus.Homtom HT20 is a pretty much typical rugged smartphone with the slightly military look, 4,7-inch HD screen and pretty solid hardware specs in general.Most users of rugged phones are not seeking the high end anyway so MT6737 processor paired with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of storage is just fine.Added benefits like IP68 certification, sturdy magnesium alloy build or 3500 mAh battery are the main selling points.Low price doesn t hurt either and currently you can find the Homtom HT20 for just $93.99 in here with black, green and white variant options.Until February 28th you have also a chance to get a Xiaomi earphones in random color for free as a bonus for the purchase.

As we ve established time and again, your clever tricks aren t protecting your password.If you or someone you know uses Bible references as a password, that trick is pretty easy to crack, too.Basing a password on a Bible verse—like using john316 or psalm23, for example—is a popular way to create a memorable password.An analysis of the 2009 Rockyou hack that revealed 32 million usernames and passwords found that various Bible verses accounted for a large number of passwords.As news site Boing Boing points out, these may be easy to memorize, but they re also fairly easy to crack.Even if you re not using a popular verse as your password, using the Bible as a template still gives hackers a way to guess what you re doing:

Restaurant booking platform Resy has closed a series A funding round led by Airbnb, with participation from First Data Corporation, RSE Ventures, and Lerer Hippeau Ventures.Founded out of New York in 2014, Resy offers a consumer-focused mobile app that promises people tables at great restaurants when they want it.The company also offers its software to restaurants, and works with more than a thousand eateries in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, and 50 conurbations across the U.S.While Airbnb is better known as the peer-to-peer platform that connects travelers with local accommodation around the world, the company has been pushing out into related experiential services too.Back in November, it introduced local experiences called Trips to its app, part of which involved a partnership with Resy that allowed Airbnb users to book local restaurants without leaving that app.So Airbnb s investment is building on an existing partnership between the two companies, and in truth it would not be entirely surprising if Airbnb ultimately acquired Resy outright should their partnership prove fruitful.Many of our most-treasured travel memories come from experiencing the local food, explained Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky.Helping people find and book incredible local restaurants is a key part of us moving beyond just accommodation to focus on the whole trip.We can t think of a better partner than Resy to help make this possible.
