Are you still running an original iPhone with its aluminum casing? It’s been a worthy companion over the years, hasn’t it? Even without 3G or GPS or compass, it still runs nearly everything that the latest iPhone 3GS does – but that’s about to come to an end.
An iPhone owner by the name of Niko emailed Steve Jobs about it, and he received a reply from the Apple CEO in a direct fashion with a.
The email sent to Steve Jobs read, ‘Hey Steve! Is Apple supporting/updating the iPhone 2G in the Future?’
Steve Jobs replied, ‘Sorry, no.’
Unless some hackers find a way to force the iPhone OS 4.0 to play nice with the original iPhone model, it could be the end of the line for the very early adopters. It’s been a good three year ride though.
If annual commitments make you break out in hives, you may be excited to learn thatand Amazon Prime Video are now both available on a month-to-month basis. Here’s what you need to know.
How Much Does Amazon Prime Video Cost?
Prime Video, by itself, will cost you $8.99, while basic Prime will cost you $10.99. For a full year of either you’ll pay more than the $99 annual subscription for the whole kit and caboodle.
From Amazon first tested the waters with this arrangement, earlier this month. As of April 4, through the carrier you can sign up for Amazon Prime for $10.99 per month. That’s $131.88 per year.
What Comes with Amazon Prime Video?
through a browser. Select titles are available for download to a Fire Tablet, Android device, iPhone or iPad. The time you have to view a title varies, but you will be notified if your time is almost up.on and off the service monthly.

Whether it’s for a job interview, meeting the in-laws or talking to friends, video services like Skype are making it easier to connect with people all over the world. They are also good ways to give a bad first impression, though, by making you look unattractive and inattentive. Fortunately, there are a few simple tricks that can help you look (and sound) better online. Here’s how to look good on Skype.
Clear the Background
Few things are more distracting from the real subject (you) than clutter in the background. Avoid things like bookshelves or walls with paintings or posters. Instead, use a clean, bright wall or other nondistracting background, such as a sheet hung over that distracting bookshelf.
Put the Camera at Eye Level
Add More Light
Most webcams are very small and don’t capture much light. You can easily improve the quality of the video by adding more light. You can getand mount them on inexpensive tripods for about $5 apiece. Or you can simply use a couple of desk lights, but make sure they have the same type of bulb to avoid an off-putting color clash — say, bluish light from one and yellowish light from another. Put your lights a couple of feet on either side of the monitor or tablet, slightly angled so they aren’t directly in your line of sight, and you’ll look much better. If you can’t make that happen, try sitting by a window to use the natural light.
Look at the Camera, not the Screen
Often you get the feeling incalls that the person on the other end isn’t paying attention. That might be because they aren’t, but it is sometimes because of the lack of eye contact. They are looking at your image on the screen, not at the camera. You can avoid giving this impression yourself by remembering to look at the camera and only occasionally glancing at the screen. That reassures the person on the other end that you are paying attention.
If you are using a small USB webcam such as the $70(which I’ve had good results with), try putting the camera on a tripod in front of the screen, so you can look at both at once. Webcams are small enough that you can see around them to view the screen.
Use a Headset, not Speakers
The image is only half of the story: Audio is the other half. The microphone built into your tablet, laptop or USB webcam is probably pretty bad, especially when it gets drowned out by the speakers next to it that you are using to listen to the other person. Instead, use a USB headset with a microphone to get better sound from both ends of the conversation. You can buy a USB headset, such as the, for about $40.
If you don’t have a headset, try using the wired headset from your cellphone, as a surprising number of tablets and laptops (but not desktops) are compatible with them. If you have only headphones without a mic, you can still use them, after running the cable discretely around your back. Speak as loudly and clearly as possible into the microphone on the device you are using to make the call. At least that way you aren’t getting noise from the speakers in the mic.
Test It First
Before you make an important call, do a trial run with a friend on Skype to make sure that everything is working properly. You can test your audio yourself by calling a service named Skype Test Call, which records and plays back your audio. Skype does not offer a similar service for video, unfortunately, but it is worth calling a friend just to make sure everything looks good.

YouTube is taking a page out of Hollywood’s book with a new feature aimed at giving you more control over your stories.
In a recent blog post,software engineers Valentin Bazarevsky and Andrei Tkachenka announced that real-time video segmentation is rolling out to YouTube Stories. The feature, which is currently in a limited beta, is available only in the YouTube app and it’s designed specifically for. But if you’re one of them, you’ll now have a new tool to create custom videos.
So, how does it actually work?
According to, the process is quite simple. From the YouTube app, simply upload a video into your Story function. Immediately, you’ll be given the option to edit your clip and create a custom background. In the options below your video, you can scroll through different background creations and test them by tapping each one. Your video will play and the background will dynamically change in the background as you scroll through the options.
Once you’re ready and have found your background, simply go through the process of publishing your story and you’ll be all set. Now, anyone who looks at your story will see the background with your video.
According to the researchers, the new feature will remain on YouTube stories until they can properly test the technology on the first line of effects. As the technology gets better and works with more sophisticated videos, they plan on integrating it into.
In other words, expect to hear more about this feature in the coming weeks and months.
Aside from the few pictures of Google’s Nexus One that appeared on Twitter a couple of weeks back, there has been little else available to those eager to know more. Until today that is.
While there are still no official specs to speak of and Google has yet to announce a launch date, pictures of the packaging and a subsequent unboxing appeared on Twitter.
Speaking to Fortune, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, Jack Tretton, said he doesn’t view the DS line as competition, as they appeal to a different demographic.
‘Our view of the ‘Game Boy experience’ is that it’s a great babysitting tool, something young kids do on airplanes, but no self-respecting twenty-something is going to be sitting on an airplane with one of those,’ he says. ‘He’s too old for that.’
Tretton also said that he feels the Xbox 360 and the Wii are running out of steam and will struggle to be relevant in 2011 and the years ahead.
‘They’re starting to run out of steam now in terms of continuing to be relevant in 2011 and beyond,’ he said, before criticizing consoles without hard drives and motion gaming: ‘I mean, you’ve gotta be kidding me. Why would I buy a gaming system without a hard drive in it? How does this thing scale? Motion gaming is cute, but if I can only wave my arms six inches, how does this really feel like I’m doing true accurate motion gaming?’
Aside from bitch-slapping competitors, Tretton talked a little about Sony’s plans for the next year, which include 3D gaming and the new PSP2, aka NGP. He admitted that while Sony 3D currently requires glasses, he believes people just need to try it for themselves before they’ll ‘get it.’
‘Conceptually, it’s hard for people to put their head around,’ he said. ‘But when you put them in front of a 3-D TV and you have them play or Killzone or Uncharted or you let them watch the National Championshiop in 3-D, they get it. Just like with HD, people have to experience it, there has to be content that takes advantage of it, and I think this is going to be a pretty nice breakout year for that.’
Of the upcoming NGP, Tretton said Sony has tried to give consumers something they feel is lacking with current devices.
“We looked at every technology out there, every [bell and] whistle, and how can we make those flexible as possible for consumers to experience.’
NGP will be available in some markets before the end of the year, though Sony has not provided a more detailed release schedule.
Dailymotion, AKA ‘that site you use when YouTube doesn’t have the video,’ has become the latest in a long line of high-traffic websites to suffer a data breach — in this case, possibly compromising 85 million user accounts.
If you’re a Dailymotion registered user, you’ll need to follow the data-breach drill. Log into your account,, and hope against hope that if the attackers got ahold of your password and username, you didn’t use those credentials for every other account online. Since Dailymotion doesn’t offer two-step verification, that’s the best you can do for now.
(in both English and French; they say pretty much the same thing) on its blog, informing users that ‘a potential security risk … may have comprised [sic] the passwords for a certain number of accounts.’
While the notice states that the attack did not steal any personal information, that information could be stolen from other websites if a Dailymotion customer used the same username and password for other, more important accounts, such as those for email, social-media or financial services.
asserted that the breach went far beyond a ‘potential security risk.’ An unknown hacker, ZDNet claims, made off with 85.2 million usernames and 18.3 million passwords on Oct. 20. The passwords were hashed with the very strong Bcrypt algorithm, meaning that even the most dedicated hacker could probably not crack them.
However, we were not able to independently verify the number of compromised accounts cited by ZDNet. The publication claimed that its information came from LeakedSource, a data-breach tracking group, and thestated 87 million Dailymotion accounts were compromised.
But because LeakedSource has not provided any hard data on Dailymotion’s woes, and Dailymotion itself has not shared any numbers, the most we can say definitively is that something went down at Dailymotion, and users would be wise to change their passwords.
Luckily, doing so is very easy. On Dailymotion’s website, log into your account, select Account Settings from the drop-down menu in the upper right, enter a new password and then click Save. Dailymotion recommends that viewers choose something a little less obvious than ‘password1234.’
You may also want to consider using ato remember all those complicated passwords. There’s really no excuse not to use one now that industry leader LastPass is mostly free.
Last year, Vivendi, the French multimedia conglomerate, purchased 90 percent of Dailymotion from the cellular carrier Orange, which retains 10 percent. This means that Dailymotion is the ward of two gigantic tech corporations, both of which should be better at protecting users from data breaches. The company could at least offer some; maybe that will be its next step.
Google Hangouts on Air isn’t long for this world. At least, not as a part of Google+. On September 12, Google will move the features from the live video chatting service into, the company’s other, much more well-known livestreaming platform.
Googleto explain to users how to get Hangouts on Air to work from YouTube Live. It’s a six step process:
Hangouts are a remnant of the launch of Google+, and you could make a plausible argument that it was the most successful part. In 2013,in a Hangouts on Air program. Otherwise, though, features introduced with Google+ have been less successful.
In July 2015, Google stopped making a Google+ account a requirement for its services (this is still being rolled out) like YouTube, and Google Photos was turned into a different product completely, including its own smartphone app. Between YouTube Live coming to mobile and Hangouts on Air being folded into the service, it’s clear that Google wants as many folks streaming to YouTube as possible.
