Twitter has updated its camera feature in its mobile app to make it easier to post more visually focused content.The updates, available today, give users faster access to posting photos, two-minute videos and live footage—something that feels like a combination of using both Twitter’s own Periscope technology and something familiar to Snapchat users.Twitter is using South by Southwest—the very same conference where, more than a decade ago, the social network debuted—to illustrate how people can post content from events.During a preview of the feature at a space the festival built for Twitter, the company gave Adweek and a few other reporters early access to try out the new feature.During a demo, Keith Coleman, Twitter’s vp of product, said the company wanted to make it as easy to follow events as it is to follow people on Twitter.“We’re trying to make it really simple to go from capturing what’s happening to getting it to the audience that really matters for whatever you’re capturing, to getting it to the people who want to talk about it,” Coleman said.

From red or white to pungent or salty, there are several incredibly important variables to consider when crafting the perfect wine and cheese combo.Integration is key for B2B content marketing success.SEO is one of the oldest digital marketing tactics, defined by consistency, commitment, and agility over the long-term to see results.And despite the fact that most peg influencer marketing as a campaign-based, social media amplification tactic, influencer success is also tied to that always-on approach.They are engaged with their followings and industry happenings.We need to constantly ensure that, as a brand, we don’t start talking to ourselves, but keep a keen focus on the evolving challenges our customers have and on language they use to express these challenges.”

Having twice previously paused its review of the proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint, the FCC has again paused its 180-day countdown clock — this time over T-Mobile’s late-stage submission of a disruptive plan to undercut competitors in the home broadband market, and a separate confidential filing.The latest pause is a three-week opportunity to review and comment on the new documents before the countdown resumes.Strictly speaking, the new broadband plan adds only a handful of additional details to T-Mobile’s previous statements on the fixed wireless market, which the carrier said last May it would enter post-merger using Sprint’s 2.5GHz spectrum holdings.The carrier now says that it will enter the market before the merger by offering a free 4G broadband router to customers, then upgrade the router to a version with 2.5GHz 5G hardware, again for free.While there will be a monthly charge for broadband service, it will be offered without contracts, installation charges, or “surprises,” including “average speeds in excess of 100 Mbps to 90 percent of the country by 2024.”As home broadband is a presently non-existent component of T-Mobile’s business, it’s hard to imagine why submitting this plan would pause review of the merger, but there’s a possibility that the FCC views it as a necessary sweetener to push through an otherwise iffy deal.

Marie Kondo, the woman who stole millions of Netflix viewers hearts this year with her show, “Tidying Up,” is in talks to raise up to $40 million in venture capital funding to scale KonMari, the business behind her personal brand, books and TV series.The news was first reported by The Information, which wrote that this wouldn’t be KonMari’s first infusion of venture investment, surprisingly.Last year, the company closed a financing round “in the low millions of dollars” led by top-tier VC fund Sequoia Capital, a detail that hadn’t been previously reported.In an email to TechCrunch, a spokesperson for the business said KonMari isn’t commenting on fundraising at this time.“Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” debuted on Netflix on January 1, 2019 to near-instant success, spurring a wave of internet-fandom for Kondo with her catchphrase “does it spark joy?” and efficient method of cleaning and organizing.The KonMari Method encourages cleaners to tidy by category, starting with clothes, then books, papers, miscellaneous items and sentimental items.

Amazon will close all 87 of its pop-up stores in the U.S. as part of an overhaul of its retail strategy.A spokesperson for the company confirmed the news in a statement to media outlets on Wednesday, saying that the decision had come “after much review.”The stores will be gone by the end of April, though it’s not immediately clear if the same fate awaits Amazon’s pop-up locations outside of the U.S.The small-sized stores are typically found inside shopping malls and showcase Amazon’s tech products such as Echo speakers, Fire tablets, and Kindle ebook readers.They offer customers a chance to get hands-on with the products and to ask staff any questions they might have.Notably, the spokesperson revealed that the company wants to focus on opening more Amazon Books stores, of which there are currently 19 across the U.S.

Pirelli is always looking to push the limits of tire technology for its customers, but that doesn't always mean developing new tread patterns or rubber compounds.Sometimes it's about giving the driver more information about their tires, something that becomes incredibly important on say, a supercar on the track.To that end, Pirelli introduced its new Track Adrenaline system at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday.The system allows drivers to track tire temperatures, pressures and lap counts in real time from their smartphones.The best part is that the system that allows this to happen is relatively simple.To give its tires some brains, Pirelli takes a set of its Trofeo R tires and builds them with sensors embedded in the carcass of the tire.

Our culture has shifted dramatically over the past couple of decades to a consumption machine.In order to achieve your goal of making it big, you have to understand buyers and how psychologically can drive people towards making a purchase today.We are going to look at the psychology behind buying in an attempt to learn why people make certain decisions.The last time you went to the store and purchased something because it was only 19 dollars and 99 cents and not 20 dollars, you experienced the left-digit effect.The difference is literally a penny, yes.However, the brain rationalizes the purchase as being between 10-20 dollars instead of 20-30, which makes it appear more affordable.

Kia is looking to make a splash at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show by unveiling a head-turning electric concept named Imagine.The car surfs some of the biggest waves sweeping across the automotive industry while poking fun at one of the biggest trends in car design.The South Korean firm called the Imagine a visual embodiment of its desire to move forward in the exciting world of electrification.Unlike Kia’s existing electric cars, the e-Niro and the e-Soul, the concept is based on a platform developed solely to underpin battery-powered models.It blends SUV, crossover, and sedan styling cues to purposely blur the lines that separate traditional market segments.Rear-facing cameras replace the door mirrors, and the design study inaugurates a more stylized version of the Kia logo.

Apple executives are taking a very hands-on approach to Apple's TV shows as they seek family-friendly content, according to The New York Post.Apple CEO Tim Cook is reportedly among these executives, and has been giving out notes and feedback including "don't be so mean."A Wall Street Journal report last year said Cook shot down Dr Dre's drama series because he thought it too violent for Apple.Apple CEO Tim Cook is reportedly taking a very hands-on role in Apple's original TV shows.The New York Post reports that Apple's original shows are suffering because of executive interference.Numerous sources told the Post that agents and producers are becoming exasperated with "intrusive" Apple executives, including CEO Tim Cook.

A capsule launched by Elon Musk’s Space X successfully docked with the International Space Station (ISS) today as part of its demonstration mission.The Dragon vehicle made the attachment autonomously having launched on Saturday from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.The 4.9 metre tall capsule contained a dummy called Ripley and 90kg of supplies.It was part of a series of tests the capsule must pass to get approval from Nasa to carry astronauts into space.The capsule separated as planned from the rocket around 11 minutes after its launch, prompting celebration in the control room, and headed towards the ISS.“I almost thought we would fail.

Polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene are the most abundant microplastics in the Mediterranean coastal waters, according to a new study published by the journal Marine Pollution Bulletin -by the experts Miquel Canals, William P. de Haan, and Anna Sànchez-Vidal, from the Consolidated Research Group on Marine Geosciences of the Faculty of Earth Sciences of the University of Barcelona,.This study describes the presence of different types of microplastics in the peninsular coastal Mediterranean, in particular at the coasts of Catalonia, the region of Murcia and Almeria in Spain.According to the results, other abundant types are nylon polymers, polyurethane (PUR), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and fluorocarbon polymer.The study has analysed about 2,500 samples of plastic materials taken from different oceanographic campaigns over a north-south axis in every area of study.In all studied areas, the most abundant materials are fragments of polyethylene (54.5 %), polypropylene (16.5 %) and polyester (9.7 %) -the most produced thermoplastic polymer worldwide- which float in marine waters and are likely to come from the continent.So far, none of the scientific studies could prove the permanence time of plastics in the sea before these deteriorate or are buried.

I was listening to The Exploding Barrel Podcast this week, which GamesBeat reviews editor Mike Minotti hosts, when they started talking about how the news around gaming is often a buzzkill.It also feels like gaming no longer has any lulls.We’ve had nonstop huge games since last summer.Just throughout February, publishers launched Apex Legends, Metro Exodus, Anthem, Far Cry: New Dawn, and plenty of others.And the thing about the bummer news and the constant onslaught of releases is that I don’t want a break from games.Sure, I wish I had more time to read and workout, but I’ve already cut out television and it takes me four days to watch a movie now.

I know it’s everyone’s dream to see outside the wavelengths allotted to our visual systems.Well, as usual, mice have gotten there first, with the help of some clever scientists.By injecting specialized light-tweaking nanoparticles into a mouse’s retina, that mouse is suddenly and clearly able to perceive near-infrared light — suggesting the same could be possible for us, assuming you don’t mind a needle in the eye.The human eye can only see wavelengths of light between about 430 and 770 nanometers; above that is ultraviolet and below it is infrared.All objects give off IR, increasingly so the warmer they are, which is the basis for heat vision goggles.We do it all the time, of course — convert one kind of light or energy into another.
