Read Quick Fiction on Your Commute With The Shortly App

Read Quick Fiction on Your Commute With The Shortly App Patrick Lucas Austin, Gawker Media Oct 31, 2017, 09.06 PM IST Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Google+ Linkedin Reddit Image credit: Andrew Burton/ Getty iOS/Android: Using your commute time to read is a noble goal in theory, and an uphill battle in practice, between crowded trains, interruptions for transfers, and the difficulty of focusing on a long read or massive novel in five-minute increments. But if you still want to get some reading done in the few minutes of downtime you can find on your journey to work, look into Shortly, which presents you with stories that are just the right length for your trip. Shortly is an iOS and Android app that pulls top-rated stories from Reddit's /r/writingprompts community. Pulling from the best of the community's short stories usually means you'll read interesting takes on prompts like "You're a killer dumping your latest victim into the river. Just as you're about to be done, you spot another person. Doing exactly the same thing. And they've just spotted you, too." Happy Halloween! When you open Shortly, you can choose between a one, three, or five-minute story from the community, and you'll be able to see the story's writing prompt along with the story itself. If you've got another few minutes to kill, you can head back to the main page and refresh for a new story. Its simple interface and random story selection means you can just open it and start reading, knowing that the story will exactly fit into the few minutes you've got left on your journey (and that you can start another one when your train is, once again, delayed).

Where in the World North Korea's Arsenal of Missiles Can Actually Reach

Where in the World North Korea's Arsenal of Missiles Can Actually Reach

Where in the World North Korea's Arsenal of Missiles Can Actually Reach Patrick Allan, Gawker Media Oct 31, 2017, 11.21 PM IST North Korea always seems to be in the news right now thanks to their aggressive threats and missile tests. The latter being the subject of many people's doomsday fears. But where could they potentially strike with the missiles they have? This rundown from the Interactive Digital Storytelling team at the Australian Broadcasting Company shows you exactly how far each of North Korea's missiles can travel, and where there are possible targets. The most concerning of these weapons is the ER Scud short-range ballistic missile. North Korea has tested these missiles at least 50 times with only one failure, which means they're pretty much ready to go. They can hit targets up to 1,000 kilometers away (621.371 miles), including all of South Korea and parts of Southern Japan, including the large city of Osaka. Advertisement So what about us here in the U.S.? North Korea's Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles have a maximum range of 4,500 kilometers (2796.17 miles), which puts the U.S. military base on Guam in danger. However, only three out of 14 tests have been successful. The Hwasong-14, on the other hand, is estimated to travel about 8,500 kilometers (5281.655 miles), which puts Alaska in range, as well as parts of northern Washington state. That said, the most recent test suggests it may be able to travel as far as 10,000 kilometers (6213.712 miles), which would put Los Angeles in range (gulp), along with the rest of the western coast. And if the missiles are fired in an easterly direction, the rotation of the Earth may allow these missiles to reach as far as New York City or Washington D.C. Keep in mind, these missiles are still in the early stages of being tested. If you're really worried about it, though, the safest place on Earth from these missiles is Mar del Plata, Argentina, so pack your bags.

Tell Alexa or Google Assistant to Make Your House Spooky on Halloween

Tell Alexa or Google Assistant to Make Your House Spooky on Halloween Michelle Woo, Gawker Media Nov 1, 2017, 12.32 AM IST Maybe you've spent the past month spreading faux cobwebs over your fireplace, creating the perfect Halloween playlist, and counting down the days to the most wonderful holiday of the year. Or maybe you woke up this morning, realized it's October 31st, and thought, 'Oh, perhaps I should be festive?' If you have Google Assistant , you can instantly set a spooky vibe in your home with a few simple commands. Below, instructions for how to pull it off on both devices: Google Assistant "Ok Google, let's get spooky." Say this command and Google Assistant will play an hour-long soundtrack of spooky music , and if you have connected smart lights, they will flicker on and off. "Ok Google, scare me." How Google Assistant will respond, you'll just have to see ... if you dare. It may tell an urban legend, or play werewolf sounds, or launch into the terrifying story of the "assistant who didn't help" (ha). Advertisement Alexa Play spooky music and sounds. For some instant mood music, you can say "Alexa, play Halloween Party Soundtrack from Amazon" or "Alexa, play the album Scream by Michael Jackson." For Halloween sounds, CNET gives these tips : Request something like the Spooky Sounds for Halloween EP on Spotify, or you can use one of the several skills. Spooky Halloween Sounds will play a continuous loop of spooky sounds until you tell Alexa to stop. It's fantastic. Spooky Sounds from SayGoodMorning.org plays 50 minutes of original spooky sounds (in a continuous loop), complete with an audio easter egg hidden within. Spooky Scream , on the other hand, will play a random scream after a set time. Say, "Alexa ask Spooky Scream to start in five minutes." Turn up the volume and wait for your unknowing victim to fall right into your trap. "Alexa, tell me a scary story." Alexa can tell you a scary story on its own, or if you enable the Boo Bot skill , it will read you a random short scary story from the Reddit community Short Scary Stories .

How to Get iOS 11.2, Which Brings iPhone X Wallpapers to Older iPhones

How to Get iOS 11.2, Which Brings iPhone X Wallpapers to Older iPhones

How to Get iOS 11.2, Which Brings iPhone X Wallpapers to Older iPhones Jacob Kleinman, Gawker Media Nov 1, 2017, 12.42 AM IST Apple still hasn't officially released iOS 11.1 , but it's already testing out the next big software update. The first developer preview for iOS 11 .2 arrived this week, bringing some small but exciting improvements to the operating system. What's New In iOS 11.2? The most notable change coming to iOS may be the addition of new wallpapers that were previously limited to the iPhone 8 and iPhone X . It didn't take long for those wallpapers to leak , but once iOS 11.2 hits, you can use them on your older iPhone without having to download images from a third-party website first. Advertisement Apple also fixed an annoying bug in its calculator app that was introduced with iOS 11. The bug sometimes caused the calculator to malfunction and spit out the wrong answer when you entered symbols into it too quickly, according to MacRumors . Other updates include some slightly redesigned emoji, following the influx of new cartoon images added in iOS 11.1., and new loading animations for Live Photo effects. iOS 11.2 also introduces AirPlay 2 with a new system for switching between audio players, but it only works with other devices running the iOS 11.2 preview too. How to Get iOS 11.2 Your best bet is to wait for the iOS 11.2 public beta, which is usually available a few days after each developer preview release. In the meantime, you'll want to join the Apple Beta Software Program if you haven't signed up in the past. You should also back up your iPhone to a Mac or PC beforehand on the off chance that something goes wrong. Advertisement Once the public beta hits, just follow the directions at the bottom of this article and those new iPhone wallpapers should be yours in no time.

Encrypt Your Flash Drive to Ensure Your Peace of Mind

Encrypt Your Flash Drive to Ensure Your Peace of Mind

Encrypt Your Flash Drive to Ensure Your Peace of Mind Patrick Lucas Austin, Gawker Media Nov 1, 2017, 01.36 AM IST Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Google+ Linkedin Reddit Image credit: Marco Verch/ Flickr We've all lost a flash drive or two. Whether it was a cheap USB drive containing some promotional material, or top secret one detailing the security protocol pertaining to a certain Queen of England's travel plans, sometimes we forget things, and have to hope that our sensitive information doesn't fall into the wrong hands. Securing your hardware by encrypting your flash drive beforehand will prevent unauthorized individuals from getting into your misplaced media. It won't get your flash drive back any faster, but you'll know that you and your data aren't in danger while your USB is at large. Mac Users: Finder Can Encrypt it For You If you're using a Mac to encrypt your flash drive, you'll need to make some slight modifications to that drive beforheand. Apple uses the HFS+ filesystem to encrypt removable media, so you'll need to format the drive using that filesystem. Open the Disk Utility app, select your USB drive, and pick Erase. Choose the MacOS Extended (Journaled) format and erase the drive, formatting it with the proper filesystem. Now you're ready to encrypt your drive. In the Finder, right-click your USB drive. Select "Encrypt" and enter a password to keep uninvited guests out. Encryption isn't instant, so you might be waiting for a few minutes depending on how large your flash drive is. Still, you'll have a secure flash drive in the end, and won't have to worry about leaking secret routes for royalty in Heathrow Airport. Windows Users: Try BitLocker or Veracrypt Windows features its own built-in file encryption software, dubbed BitLocker . It's found in Pro, Ultimate, or Enterprise versions of Windows Vista and onward, including Windows 10. BitLocker works with NTFS, FAT, or FAT32 filesystems. Right-clicking your drive and choosing "Format" will let you choose which filesystem you want to use on your newly formatted drive. Advertisement From there, encrypting your removable drive is pretty easy. Select the drive in your file explorer, and hit the Manage tab up top. Select BitLocker, then Turn BitLocker On. You'll have to enter your password twice, or use a smart card if you have one available. You can then save your recovery key (in case you forget your actual password) to your Microsoft account, to a file on your PC, or print it out and store it somewhere secure. If you're using a different version of Windows, or for some reason would rather avoid using BitLocker, you can always use VeraCrypt . It's among the most popular file encryption apps , as picked by you lovely readers.

Samsung's Android Browser Offers a Big Privacy Perk Over Chrome

Samsung's Android Browser Offers a Big Privacy Perk Over Chrome

Samsung's Android Browser Offers a Big Privacy Perk Over Chrome Jacob Kleinman, Gawker Media Nov 1, 2017, 06.46 PM IST Samsung is bringing its smartphone browser to all Android phones (assuming you're running Android 5.0 or up), and it has one big advantage over Google 's own Chrome browser. The Samsung Internet app features a built-in ad tracking blocker to keep other websites from following your activity across the internet. Here's why you might want to consider Samsung Internet as your primary Android browser if you care about privacy. What Tracking Blockers Do and Why They Matter You're constantly being tracked online by big companies and small websites alike. Most of that information is used to create targeted ads, while some may be more malicious. Either way, you probably don't want anyone quietly tracking your activity, and that's where these blockers come in. Tracking blockers prevent invisible trackers from seeing what you do, thus keeping your personal information private. That's pretty much it. Samsung Internet Even so, they've become a controversial subject in some circles. When Apple updated its Safari browser to limit online tracking it sparked a backlash from digital advertising and marketing companies. In a statement to The Verge , Apple countered that ad tracking has become too widespread, calling it a threat to user privacy. Advertisement Google also has a spotty history when it comes to ad tracking, possibly because the company makes so much of its money from online ads. In Google's Chrome browser, tracking can't be turned off completely unless you switch to Incognito mode . A recent study also found that ad trackers can get around Chrome extensions designed to block them fairly easily. With Samsung Internet, tracker blocking is enabled by default in Secret Mode. You can also switch it on for regular browsing from the app's settings if you want to keep your activity hidden from trackers at all times. What Else Does Samsung Internet Have to Offer? Samsung Internet Beyond tracker blocking, Samsung Internet supports various ad blockers and includes a special menu for managing all of those extensions in one place. It also features a Night Mode with a dark theme and reduced light for browsing the internet in bed, and a High Contrast Mode with a dark background and bright white text that's easier to read. Advertisement If you're using Chrome on your desktop computer you can sync your bookmarks with the Samsung Internet app. Finally, Samsung included some backend improvements to keep things running smoothly. Those are all pretty minor features, but Samsung's tracking blocker may be enough to win you over-at least unless Google introduces something similar in a future Chrome update.

How to Get the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta on Your Galaxy S8

How to Get the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta on Your Galaxy S8 Jacob Kleinman, Gawker Media Nov 1, 2017, 11.26 PM IST Galaxy S8/ Gizmodo If you bought the Pixel 2 or you're using an older Google-branded smartphone , you've already got Android 8. 0 up and running. But for everyone else, that update is still out of reach. Thankfully, it looks like Samsung is getting ready to test the latest version of Android on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Here's what you need to know to get your hands on Samsung's Android 8.0 beta as soon as possible. How to Prepare for Samsung's Android 8.0 Beta Test Gizmodo Samsung hasn't officially confirmed when it plans to release the first beta, but we may already have the details. One Reddit user recently did some digging in the Samsung Plus app (which offers tips and access to special programs in the U.S.) and discovered multiple mentions of something called the Oreo Beta Program. Advertisement According to the leak, Samsung will open up its Android 8.0 beta for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus on Nov. 2 at 11 a.m. (no timezone mentioned), when you'll be able to access it via the Samsung Plus app. In the U.S., the beta is available for T-Mobile, Sprint and unlocked versions of the phones, with just 7,500 spots open for each. In the leak, Samsung also notes that the beta program is "First come, first served," so you'll want to act fast. In the meantime, it's worth making sure you have the Samsung Plus app ready to go on your phone. What Android 8.0 Brings to the Galaxy S8 Samsung's new emoji/ Reddit The biggest reason to update your Samsung phone to the latest version of Android is probably for the emoji. Not only does the the new software include a bunch of new emoji options, it also overhauls some of the older designs for the better. Comparing Samung's emoji pre and post-update/ Imgur According to another Reddit user who claims to have gotten early access to the beta on their Galaxy S8, the phone runs a lot faster and more smoothly after the update. Other new Android 8.0 features include the ability to turn off notification badges and snooze notifications, along with better battery life. However, it's unclear if all those improvements will make it into Samsung's version of the update. Advertisement We should know more soon. Until then, keep an eye on the Samsung Plus app if you want to test out Android 8.0 on your Galaxy S8.

Fast Pair Brings One of Apple's Best AirPod Features to Android

Fast Pair Brings One of Apple's Best AirPod Features to Android

Fast Pair Brings One of Apple's Best AirPod Features to Android Patrick Lucas Austin, Gawker Media Nov 2, 2017, 12.06 AM IST Yesterday, Google announced an update to the way Android devices, making connecting some wireless headphones less of a headache. It's called Fast Pair, and while it only works with a few devices right now, the company's looking to convince manufacturers and add their compatible Bluetooth devices to the Fast Pair ecosystem. How it Works Fast Pair is Android's take on fast and simple Bluetooth device pairing, operating in a similar manner to Apple's own AirPods. But instead of depending on proprietary hardware like the W1 chip inside AirPods, Fast Pair relies on the battery-friendly Bluetooth Low Energy protocol, used to connect wearables, headphones, and smart home tech to devices without drawing excessive power. GIF Image credit: Google It combines the Bluetooth information with location data to search for supported devices in the vicinity. When your smartphone finds a Bluetooth Low Energy device supporting Fast Pair (i.e. your Fast Pair-enabled headphones or speakers), you'll receive a notification asking you to pair the two devices. Android will also notify you of any companion apps for your particular device should you want more control over its sound, or want to enable particular features. How to Get It Google's Fast Pair feature is currently only rolling out to certain Android devices. You'll find it on Pixel 2 devices, but you can ensure the update hits whatever Android smartphone you own by upgrading to Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or above . You'll also need to update Google Play services to version 11.7 or above. Not Every Headset Works Fast Pair not only requires an updated version of Android, but a compatible pair of headphones to operate properly. According to Google, their own translation-friendly Pixel Buds, along with the on-ear Libratone Q-Adapt headphones support Fast Pair. Advertisement As someone who has used Fast Pair with the aforementioned Libratone headphones and the Google Pixel 2 XL, the pairing experience was definitely a more simple endeavor compared to pairing traditional Bluetooth headphones. You turn them on, hold the pair button, and watch the headphones, complete with an icon and description, pop up in your notification bar. It's still a bit buggy, however, and occasionally attempts to pair with another set of Bluetooth headphones , requiring you to toggle Bluetooth off and on. Still, it gets the hard part of the job done. Support for more devices, like the Plantronics Voyager 8200 series of wireless headsets, is on the way, and Google's urging manufacturers to get on board, asking them to fill out a form requesting more information about the feature.

Is Brown Rice Really That Much Healthier Than White Rice?

Wednesday, November 1 2017

Is Brown Rice Really That Much Healthier Than White Rice?

Is Brown Rice Really That Much Healthier Than White Rice? Patrick Allan, Gawker Media Nov 2, 2017, 12.16 AM IST My girlfriend and I make a lot of rice when we cook. Trouble is, she likes brown rice for health reasons and I like white rice for yummy reasons. I know brown rice is supposed to be "healthier" than white rice, but is it so much healthier that I need to make the switch? Brown rice and white rice are really the same grain -the only difference being that white rice has been milled more to remove everything but the white endosperm portion of the grain. What's left on brown rice is the bran and germ in addition to the inner endosperm. This leaves the grain looking brown, and as we all know, people believe that brown versions of things are more nutritional : brown rice, wheat bread, wheat pasta, etc. But am I really wrecking my diet by choosing white rice over brown rice when I'm in line at Chipotle? Not really! Let me explain. Advertisement Brown rice has more fiber and protein than white rice , which is good, but brown rice also has more calories, more carbs, and more fat than white rice, as well. If you're just looking at the numbers, white rice seems slightly healthier. That said, white rice has a higher glycemic index, meaning your body breaks it down faster, creating higher levels of blood glucose and promoting higher levels of insulin response. That can be troubling for those at risk of type 2 diabetes , but not a big deal for others. Brown rice is packed with more nutrients like magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, selenium, copper, and potassium. But a lot of white rice is enriched, which helps close the nutrient gap between the two. All told, these two versions of the same grain are neck and neck. In fact, one 1996 study out of Portugal found there to be no "evidence that the brown rice diet is better than the diet based on white rice," despite the higher nutrient contents of brown rice. Now let's talk phytate, something brown rice has but white rice doesn't. Phytic acid is considered an "anti-nutrient" that reduces your body's ability to absorb beneficial nutrients because it has a strong binding affinity to important minerals. For example, when iron and zinc bind to phytic acid, they become insoluble and are difficult for your intestines to absorb. Phytic acid also affects your nitrogen levels and protein digestibility, according to one 1987 study out of Japan : "The nitrogen balance was negative on both diets, but more negative on the brown rice diet. The phosphorus balance on the brown rice diet was significantly negative, but other minerals were not affected by the diet. The levels of cholesterol and minerals in the plasma were not significantly different on the polished rice diet and the brown rice diet. Comparing these results with data on standard protein intake (Miyoshi, H. et al (1986) J. Nutr. Sci. Vitaminol., 32, 581-589.), we concluded that brown rice reduced protein digestibility and nitrogen balance." There's also the issue of arsenic in rice. Consumer Reports found that brown rice tends to have more arsenic when compared to white rice of the same origin . White rice does still have traces of arsenic , sure, but brown rice has more overall. Too much arsenic, if you weren't sure, is not good for you. Keep in mind, though, these phytate and arsenic levels aren't going to kill you or totally ruin your diet after a few bites. The FDA points out that eating reasonable amounts of any type of rice is completely fine , as long as you try to maintain a well-balanced diet. At the end of the day, brown rice and white rice are at a stalemate. They each have very minor advantages over the other, but there's nothing that stands out and says one is better than the other in regards to your health. If you're at risk of diabetes, studies suggest opting for brown rice over white rice can reduce that risk , but otherwise it's a toss up. So, eat whatever kind of rice you want, as long as it's in moderation. After all, too much of either type of rice isn't going to be great for you in the long run. As for me, I'll stick to my tasty white rice come meal time!

How to Ditch Your Old Email Address For a Proper Apple ID Login

How to Ditch Your Old Email Address For a Proper Apple ID Login

How to Ditch Your Old Email Address For a Proper Apple ID Login Patrick Lucas Austin, Gawker Media Nov 2, 2017, 01.06 AM IST Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Google+ Linkedin Reddit Image credit: Jack Taylor/ Getty If you're tired of being embarrassed by the old " " email address you have to enter when you log into your Apple account, some good news: you can finally change your Apple ID username, according to Apple's updated support documents . Previously, it was impossible to convert an Apple ID email address without creating a brand new account. Longtime Apple users invested in the company's iOS, iTunes, or macOS ecosystem have probably been stuck with the same Apple ID, most likely a third-party email address, for quite some time. Whether you'd like to retire that embarrassing (or compromised) email address, declare email bankruptcy, or start over with an official Apple ID, complete with inbox , with, here's how to ditch the old email address of yore and finally go all-in. Before You Change Your Apple ID Don't rush into changing your Apple ID without getting your ducks in a row. Apple suggests you log out of whatever devices you own . If you use Apple services on other non-Apple devices (like iCloud for Windows), you'll have to sign out and re-enter your updated Apple ID username and password for those services as well. While you'll be signed out of these devices automatically anyway, Apple's recommended procedure explicitly mentions logging out of devices first, and will save you from the headache of dealing with potentially malicious sign in pop-ups should you be asked to enter your new credentials later on. How to Change Your ID Apple provides a detailed set of instructions on changing your Apple ID, but the process depends on your current Apple ID email address. If you're using a third-party email address (like a Yahoo or Hotmail account), you have two options: change your username to another third-party email address, like your Gmail account, or start fresh with a new email address from Apple. Advertisement If you choose to create an Apple ID, you'll be able to use an @icloud.com, @me.com, or @mac.com email address that doubles as your new username. Those already using an Apple email as their Apple ID are able to change their username as well, but only to another @icloud.com, @me.com, or @mac.com email address. (In other words, you can't switch from an Apple email to a third-party option, but you can create a fresh Apple option from scratch.) How to Connect Two Apple ID Accounts The less patient Apple users among us may have long since abandoned their old third-party accounts and created an Apple ID using Apple's own email addresses. That means you might have two Apple ID accounts. While Apple (still) won't let you merge two accounts into one, you can use Apple's Family Sharing feature to link your old account to your new one. Gather your old Apple ID information, follow Apple's instructions for adding an Apple ID to your family group, and regain access to your old apps, music, and other media.
