Target's payment systems appeared to be missing the mark the day before Father's Day, as terminals went AWOL for a couple of hours in a number of the company's US retail outlets.The outage caused long lines but prompted an encouraging show of sympathy for Target employees from people on Twitter.And there were some jokes too, of course."We're aware that guests are currently unable to make purchases at Target stores," the company said in its own tweet Saturday morning."Our teams are troubleshooting now and we apologize for the inconvenience.We will provide an update as soon as possible."

A little over a year after discontinuing its Mac desktop app, Twitter says that it’s bringing the program back after Apple unveiled Project Catalyst for macOS 10.15 Catalina.It explained why it decided to drop the app last year.Twitter made the announcement during Apple’s WWDC conference last week, saying that the app would launch with Catalina this fall, and that this new version will have a variety of features like dark mode, keyboard shortcuts, multiple windows, and notifications.In February 2018, Twitter pulled the application from Apple’s App Store after a history of sporadic updates, and recommended that people simply use the web version.In its post yesterday, it also provides a bit more of an explanation for why the original Mac app was discontinued: while it originated with the iPhone app, the Mac app “diverged as Twitter increasingly focused on its mobile apps,” and the company simply couldn’t maintain the two.Twitter says that with Project Catalyst, they’ll be able to use their existing iOS codebase and will add on features for desktops “while keeping our maintenance efficient as we continue to improve this shared codebase in the years to come.”

Originally, a Facebook engineer built React as an internal project to manage its ads.If you've ever liked a status on Facebook, tweeted from your phone, checked off an item on your to-do list on Asana, or pinned a photo on Pinterest, then you've crossed paths with React.It's built on JavaScript, the most popular programming language according to the mega-popular code hosting site GitHub, which keeps tabs on such things.Users can reuse components that have already been built, such as buttons.It's still used by Facebook, but it's picked up a large, passionate community, which hosts scores of meetups, plenty of conference talks, and an innumerable number of blog posts devoted solely to React.Carl Bergenhem, product manager at software consultancy Progress, says that using React is like building a house with Lego — if someone else had already made the tricky parts like the roof for you ahead of time.

Some of the best real-time insights into Tesla and its global fleet of electric vehicles — outside the confines of its Silicon Valley headquarters — might be through the lens of TezLab, a tiny upstart in Brooklyn.Now, a little more than two years after its founding, TezLab is on the verge of hitting what its founders believe is a tipping point of users, a milestone that could finally trigger a path to monetization.One of these features, which crowdsources data like Waze to give insights and ratings on Tesla Supercharger stations, is rolling out now.The Waze for supercharger feature is considered “phase one” of the company’s plans to broaden its crowdsourcing and social community.The six-person team behind TezLab was born out of HappyFunCorp, a software engineering shop that builds apps for mobile, web, wearables and Internet of Things devices for clients that include Amazon, Facebook and Twitter, as well as an array of startups.HFC’s engineers, including co-founders Ben Schippers and William Schenk, were attracted to Tesla largely because of its techcentric approach and one important detail: the Tesla API endpoints are accessible to outsiders.
Hello and welcome back to Startups Weekly, a newsletter published every Saturday that dives into the week’s noteworthy venture capital deals, funds and trends.Before that, I noted the proliferation of billion-dollar companies.Remember, you can send me tips, suggestions and feedback to kate.clark@techcrunch.com or on Twitter @KateClarkTweets.Now I know this newsletter is supposed to be about startups, but we’re shifting our focus to Big Tech today.I spent the better part of the week in Scottsdale, Ariz. where temperatures outside soared past 100 and temperatures inside were icy cold.Both because Recode + Vox cranked the AC to ungodly levels but also because every panel, it seemed, veered into a debate around the “techlash” and antitrust.
In an abrupt about-face, the organizers of Black Hat USA removed Rep. Will Hurd as keynote speaker on Friday, a day after they had announced his appearance at the annual cybersecurity conference.The cancelation of the politician's appearance followed a backlash on Twitter, where people in the industry called it inappropriate."We are still fully dedicated to providing an inclusive environment and apologize that this decision did not reflect that sentiment," conference organizers said in part in its statement Friday.Hurd, a Republican who represents Texas' 13th District, has been a vocal supporter of using tech-based solutions at the US-Mexico border in lieu of a wall.He has also voted to curtail access to abortion.In 2015, he voted against an amendment that would have offered financial support to women in STEM -- the bill lost by a vote of 204-217.

The iOS 13 developer's beta may have revealed a major clue about a new feature coming to the 2019 iPhones, and another long-time iPhone feature could be on the chopping block.2019 iPhone lineup may switch to USB-CWWDC 2019 may be over, but it's left behind a trail of clues that hint at what Apple is planning for its next batch of product announcements.At first glance it just looks like an image of a Mac and the top end of a cable -- but that's no Lightning cable.The existing iPhone recovery mode image clearly shows a Lightning cable tip, while the one in the beta looks more like a USB-C tip as pointed out by Forbes.The more likely possibility is that the image refers to the USB-C end of a USB-C-to-Llightning cable going in to the Mac.

The third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe reached its climax in Avengers: Endgame and concludes with this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, leading many fans to wonder what’s next.Now, a new round of rumors from a “Marvel insider” purportedly reveal all of Marvel’s secret Phase Four plans, but there’s a catch: They’re probably not true.On May 27, a YouTube channel called The Cosmic Wonder posted a seven-minute video that allegedly spilled the beans on a number of upcoming Marvel projects, including further details on some previously announced films and television shows.Much of this information was credited to Roger Wardell, a mysterious Twitter user who correctly reported (or predicted) a number of Endgame‘s major plot points and cameos.The rumors were picked up by the press last week, and seem to be making the rounds again (on the off-chance that some of this information is accurate, be wary of potential spoilers).The so-called “leaks” are filled with tantalizing teases about the future of the MCU, including the appearance of the actual Mandarin in Shang-Chi, the big-screen debut of Thor ally Beta Ray Bill, and a new Black Widow played by Florence Pugh.

Not so long ago, companies that cracked personal devices on behalf of governments did so in secret, closely guarding even the descriptions of their capabilities.Now, it seems, they proudly tweet about their updated abilities to hack into new iPhones, like a videogame firm offering an expansion pack.In marketing that update, it says that the tool can now unlock any iOS device cops can lay their hands on, including those running iOS 12.3, released just a month ago.Cellebrite claims UFED Premium can extract files from many recent Android phones as well, including the Samsung Galaxy S9.The move signals not only another step in the cat and mouse game between smartphone makers and the government-sponsored firms that seek to defeat their security, but also a more unabashedly public phase of that security face-off.An exclusive solution for law enforcement to unlock and extract data from all iOS and high-end Android devices," the company wrote on its Twitter feed for the UFED product.

Google tried to control the narrative around the rampant Pixel 4 leaks that have appeared online over the last few weeks, sharing an official image of the back of the phone on Twitter earlier this week.But not even the search giant can control the leaky ship, with a new image of the company's forthcoming Pixel now popping up online.Captured by an anonymous "tipster" in London, on Friday 9to5Google shared images of the Pixel 4 in the wild, new rear camera square bump and all.No images were shared of the front of the device, which was in what appears to be a fabric case similar to what Google sells for the Pixel 2, 3 and 3A.The site does, however, say that according to their source the phone did have two front cameras and a large "forehead."In addition to multiple rear cameras, the Pixel 4 is expected to feature a redesigned front that may incorporate Google's Project Soli for allowing hand gestures to control the phone.

Craig Wright appears to have briefly forgotten that he wrote the Bitcoin BTC white paper while speaking at a recent conference in Toronto.Wright, lead brain behind alternative cryptocurrency Bitcoin Satoshi Vision, caused controversy earlier this year after suing community members who refused to acknowledge that he created Bitcoin under the Satoshi Nakamoto pseudonym.An eagle-eyed Twitter user shared a clip from Wright’s presentation, in which Wright (hilariously) says:There’s this whole section, I remember some white paper, um, back in 2008, had this section on how identity worked in Bitcoin.Bitcoin podcaster Peter McCormack and Twitter-based cartoon space-cat “Hodlonaut” were the first targets.Lawyers representing Wright later sent legal notices to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, Blocksteam CEO Adam Back, as well as two independent cryptocurrency news outlets.

The Pixel 4 has no doubt been a hot topic this week.After leaked CAD renders and metal Pixel 4 models gave us a good look at what the Pixel 4 might look like, Google tweeted out a Pixel 4 render of its own — essentially confirming the look of the device.Now, we’re seeing our first in-hand Pixel 4 leak.Obtained by our friends at 9to5Google, the two photos show off someone using a Google Pixel 4 in the wild.While the quality isn’t the best, its easy to see the similarities between the phone in the photo and the official render Google showed off on Twitter.The back of the device houses a big square camera sensor hub, complete with two camera sensors, a flash on the bottom, and what’s assumed to be a spectral sensor on the top.

Search Engines usually DEINDEX and PENALIZE websites suspected of involvement and doing such practices regular basis. How to Earn Backlinks? –  MeaningA lot of individuals performing SEO confuse earning traffic with constructing backlinks.These are two distinct concepts.  Perhaps you have taken a moment to consider why your site deserves backlinks? I have understood that there’s just 1 method to EARN traffic…You have to become obsessed with satisfying your customers. As of late, I’ve become absorbed with all the overwhelming dream to please my customers. After hours of consideration, I have understood that successful SEO begins with the consumer in mind.Should you please the consumer, you may please Google. I used to spend a lot of my time attempting to determine how to”trick” or control Google. I can not get back that time, but I’ve learned an important lesson:To create a real company, you must revolve around satisfying the consumer. On a constant basis.Know that:Happy Customers are your own marketing.Happy and Satisfied Customers will Share your articles on social networking.Happy and Satisfied Visitors will go back to your site.Your search engine optimisation effort will change when you set your customers First.Allow Me to Show You How You Can make traffic by being user-centric: How to Earn Backlinks? | Best Ways to Earn Backlinks1. Need to Promote Your ContentYes, to EARN Backlinks, individuals must realise your content.  Invisible content does not get backlinks, however great it is. Content marketing is a subject I will be described in future articles since it is comprehensive.However, here’s a simple technique you can use:The most essential part of the strategy would be to get a fantastic part of the content. It has to be better compared to another pertinent part of the content they’re connecting to.To discover prospects utilize Buzzsumo or consider the very first page of Google to your target keyword. Just take the best 10 results and operate them via Ahrefs or Majestic.They might not change hyperlinks, but they may link to a source in a future essay.Additionally, don’t forget to share your articles in your own owned media assets like Facebook, Twitter, etc.. It is necessary to engage with the crowd that you already have since it may cause links that are natural. 2. Focus on Users Problem with WebsiteLet Us face it:If users do not like your site, then Google will not.  Your focus should not be on manipulating calculations. Your focus must be”what can I do immediately to help my potential clients or subscribers?”There is not a single site on the internet that can not enhance User Experience (UX). There’s always room to assist more and provide more. A site which puts 100% effort into satisfying the consumer, will make backlinks.It’s a vote. A number of those”votes” are much better than others. Think about it this way:Candidates in the Republicans and Democrats are fighting to make their party’s nomination. If you cut through most of the media sound There’s a strong marketing strategy at play:Endorsements.Every time a candidate receives an endorsement by a famous figure in the celebration, it’s a massive thing. A single endorsement may get great amounts of information coverage.Look at these spikes immediately after endorsements. Consider backlinks as exemptions for your site.What exactly does your site/blog need to deserve a large approval?Small exemptions are nice and will chemical over time. But getting an endorsement by a popular website on your industry is far stronger. The only way to get such backlinks, you need to give higher value to the users. 3. You Should Build an Email ListThat is appropriate. Among the most effective ways to make backlinks would be to get an email listing. That is because it is possible to email your listing when you publish a new blog article. The folks in your list are receptive for you and enjoy what it is you do.A number of these very same subscribers also have sites of their own. It’s a lot more probably a loyal contributor will relate to your articles than it occurring randomly.I Am Sure That You Have Noticed this Occur:A leading writer instills a new blog article and BAM; They have innumerable social shares and remarks within hours.How can this occur?It is because they market their articles to their listing! Possessing an email listing is a genuine advantage for your company.It is not influenced by algorithm modifications.It is not influenced by policy changes.It is yours and it is the best advantage.Increase in email subscriber list should be a priority for business. 4. Your Content should be important for the UserYou understand how aggressive content promotion is at the entrepreneur, SEO, and advertising businesses. Bloggers are pumping out amazing parts of content.Occasionally these articles bits are over 10,000 words. Others instances, countless hours are investing in performing research and finding info. This is the norm in these types of businesses.However, this is not the norm in each business.Is it?Maybe. There is not just one formula for producing content that pleases an individual. That is why it may be harmful immersing yourself from the businesses over. It narrows your own view.You begin to consider that”great” content needs to be 1,800 words more. “Great” content comes in all sizes and shapes. Yes, nearly all of your articles must concentrate on a single keyword.However, don’t allow the search engine to decide what kinds of articles that you would like to create. There are instances when you will need to address a micro issue on your own content.This micro issue might just get 10 searches per month at Google.WHO CARES.Provided that you have the aim of assisting a person, it is going to enhance the value of your site.There is not an issue too large or too little.SEO’s become wrapped up in data, but forget about the consumer. For all I care, this is a chance to help roughly 10 individuals.That you would like to know what’s amusing?I didn’t care that it did not have hunt quantity at the moment. I simply knew it was an issue since I had been the one fighting with it!. The moral of this story is your content should help individuals achieve a goal or solve an issue.It does not always have to be monumental. Making something which makes someone laugh is solving an issue. Showing someone the best way to sharpen a pencil is solving an issue. Telling someone about the errors you have made helps them prevent those errors. Concentrate on the user.What are their issues and what can you do to assist them? When you figure that out, then you have to be certain that… 5. You Need to Building RelationshipsTo make backlinks, you want to create relationships. Your site cannot be an island in the centre of the sea. You need to build relationships and connections.These relationships will cause backlinks. You won’t have to request a connection the majority of the time. Only the action of establishing relationships with high bloggers will frequently result in hyperlinks.When seeking to create relationships, you want to always concentrate on what you could do to help the individual. Can you recall what I mentioned about being user-centric? The identical principle applies when seeking to create relationships. You ought to be thinking about ways to help the prospect. Not how it is possible to get more from them.Following that, you are going to get.Think of it:Why would anybody want to connect to your site after obtaining a chilly email petition? I know I would not. To acquire your site and name”out there” you want to use repetition. That means your title needs to observable on several fronts.Begin with a well-thought-out comment in their own blog. Repeat this cycle over and over until it is clear they know your name. As soon as you’ve gone through this attempt, THEN inquire the way to help them in 1 way or another.How do you give them worth? Why should they relate to your articles? Do your articles deserve hyperlinks from a leading site? Could it be THAT good? You may always have a biased response.That is the reason you need to look for out opinions. ASK top bloggers exactly what they consider your own content.

Founded in 2009 by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, the company sells affordable mobile-based point-of-sale systems.Back in March, Dorsey tweeted that Square was actively recruiting a modest team of cryptocurrency developers and designers to work on open-source contributions to the ecosystem.Square is hiring 3-4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full-time on open source contributions to the bitcoin/crypto ecosystem.For thirty minutes, I grilled the enigmatic Twitter and Square founder about his progress in building a cryptocurrency A-Team, and his overall goals for this exciting nascent market.There really hasn’t been a prospect until a few years ago, when the Bitcoin BTC white paper was released,” he told me.Citing the example of Square, he said: “Just from a business perspective, we don’t look like an Internet company today.
