King Von’s Sister Blasts Atlanta Mortician Who Allegedly Leaked Rapper’s Autopsy Photos: “WE NEED HIM FIRED NOW!”

King Von’s sister Kayla B has called out the mortician who allegedly took photos of the slain rapper following his autopsy and is believed to have helped the images spread online, sparking outrage all over social media.

Messenger and Instagram’s ‘Vanish Mode’ makes chats self-destruct with a swipe

It was just last week that Facebook introduced ephemeral messages in WhatsApp that disappear in seven days. Now the company is going a step further by introducing “Vanish Mode” for Messenger and Instagram, which will automatically delete text messages and media as soon as they are viewed and you leave the chat. If that sounds familiar, it’s probably because it’s yet another feature Facebook is borrowing from Snapchat, which has offered similar functionality for years. To activate the feature, yo...

Wonky and wonderfully taped up old Tokyo

In many ways, this former shop is a great example of old Tokyo. Ubiquitous modern vending machine aside, it’s full of character, patched up with tape, and perhaps more than anything, nothing seems quite straight or lined up — including the elderly owner’s cardigan.

Netflix’s latest experiment is a TikTok-like feed of funny videos

Netflix already borrowed the concept of short-form video “Stories” from social apps like Snapchat and Instagram for its Previews feature back in 2018. Now, the company is looking to the full-screen vertical video feed, popularized by TikTok, for further inspiration. With its latest experiment, Fast Laughs, Netflix is offering a new feed of short-form comedy clips drawn from its full catalog.

Around Notre Dame

Since I was visiting the bookstore, Shakespeare and Company, I walked across the street to Notre Dame. Since the militant Islamic attack had just taken place in Nice, there were a lot of policemen around. Here it is with a crane behind it. Usually there isn’t any graffiti around this area and I wonder what happened. A sad photo of the fire. A famous corner for Instagram photos. I have quite a few but took one more. A closeup of it. I was tempted to stop for tea but car...

The Matrix is already here: Social media promised to connect us, but left us isolated, scared and tribal

About a year ago I began to follow my interest in health and fitness on Instagram. Soon I began to see more and more fitness-related accounts, groups, posts and ads. I kept clicking and following, and eventually my Instagram became all about fit people, fitness and motivational material, and advertisements. Does this sound familiar?While the algorithms and my brain kept me scrolling on the endless feeds, I was reminded of what digital marketers like to say: “Money is in the list." That is, the m...

L’Oréal rolls out a line of ‘virtual makeup’

Selfie filters have improved immensely over the past several years, but companies on the forefront of the tech see plenty of room to grow.

How western travel influencers got tangled up in Pakistan's politics

Travel bloggers have flocked to Pakistan in recent years – but have some of them become too close to the authorities? Long before she became headline news in Pakistan, Cynthia Dawn Ritchie was simply a tourist. In 2009, Ritchie, an American woman living in Houston, Texas, took a trip to Karachi, the sprawling megacity in southern Pakistan. At the time, Pakistan was beset by terrorist violence, and the travel advice of most western countries could be summarised as “don’t go”. But Ritchie had been...
