YouTube Will Remind Users To 'Keep Comments Respectful' Before Posting

YouTube is taking new steps to weed out bullying, hate speech and other kinds of nasty comments.

The change is rolling out now on Android, and will eventually move to other platforms, though it's not clear when. The feature is similar to one recently implemented by Instagram. Before a comment is posted, a pop-up will appear with a...

Ben Ling’s Bling Capital just rounded up $113 million more from investors

Ben Ling is as done with 2020 as the rest of us, but certainly for him, the year could be worse. Ling, who founded his own venture outfit in 2018 — naming it Bling Capital (a nickname from way back) — just closed on $113 million in capital commitments across two new funds: a seed-focused $77 million fund, and an opportunity fund focused on breakout companies from his portfolio that closed with $36 million in capital commitments. It’s a decent amount of money for a so-called solo GP fund, especia...

How to Wade Through the “Winner Takes It All” Search Landscape

In the last decade, blogging has come a long way from being the informal weblog it started as. Businesses created processes and formalized it into “content marketing” as it’s proven to drive traffic, leads, and revenue. But where do you earn eyeballs to get exposure for the content you create? Social media networks encourage businesses to build their fans and followers on their platforms. But once brands have built their audience on these platforms, they start their users to themselves–busi...

Google’s AI experiment syncs every ‘Bad Guy’ song cover in an endless video

We’ve seen some cool AI-based musical experiments from Google’s team recently, including a virtual piano and a voice-to-music converter. The company’s latest experiment is a bit different: an infinite version of Billie Eilish’s hit song, ‘Bad Guy.’ Don’t worry. It’s not just one song being repeated again and again. Google’s team has developed a tool that syncs all the covers of the song on YouTube and plays them bits their portion sequentially. So, imagine a montage of covers being played from t...

The Weak Strategy Of Conquest Marketing

Automotive companies are laser-focused on the future. General Motors, Ford, Mercedes, and VW, for example, are gathering resources to invest in electric vehicles, to ensure that Tesla does not walk away with all the customers. Car companies fill their new vehicles with technology, a lot of which is probably never used. To be fair, there are certain technologies such as lane departure alerts, blind-spot monitors, and rear cameras that are making driving safer. With Alexa, Siri, Sirius, and all...

Hudson H9, A Failure On Multiple Fronts – Review

Hudson H9, A Failure On Multiple Fronts U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- I want to be upfront before we dive into the Hudson H9 review. The Hudson H9 captured my attention to the point that I overlooked the fact that it wasn't ideal for any practical, competition, or even defensive use. Normally my purchases are reasonably pragmatic, but I ignored logic and bought one of these 9mm disappointments like many others. Disclaimer: I never received a gun from Hudson for testing but purchased the pistol for ...

YouTube Defeats Lawsuit Over Cryptocurrency Scam–Ripple v. YouTube

Ripple Labs developed a cryptocurrency called XRP. Scammers phished verified YouTube accounts and then used the hijacked accounts to post YouTube videos–seemingly from Ripple–inducing consumers to transfer their XRP, where they were stolen. YouTube allegedly responded to takedown notices slowly. Ripple Labs and its CEO Brad Garlinghouse (of the Yahoo Peanut Butter manifesto infamy) then sued YouTube for contributory trademark infringement, publicity rights violations, and 17200. The court dismis...
