  2. iOS: Facebook has become the de facto method for organizing events, simply because everyone’s on the platform. Now, if you want to get out of the house (and have an iOS device), you can browse a new section of the app designed to pair you with a party you can get down with. The feature is currently being tested with iOS users, presumably to rollout to more platforms in the future. You can browse events by what you’re interested in, so you’ll get paired up with people you have common ground with. Or you can browse by date. So, if you have a free weekend coming up, you can find something to do ahead of time.
  3. The Belgian residents who were linked to the November terrorist attack could have been stopped with real-time sophisticated analytics that can detect behavioral changes in credit and debit card usage, said Dr. Akli Adjaoute, founder and CEO of Brighterion, a company specializing in credit card fraud prevention. The system would probably have caught the attacker, he said, even if the various government intelligence services weren’t involved. “The guy from Belgium was blacklisted. He rented a car using his own card and passport, crossed the border, filled up with gas and created a digital footprint.” You can’t rent a car without a credit card because the card covers insurance. Most airline tickets are also purchased with plastic — a Belgian trying to buy a ticket to Turkey with cash would immediately arouse suspicions. The artificial intelligence that Brighterion uses to prevent fraud in credit cards — MasterCard is a client — could detect the sort of change in behavior leading up to an attack. “You can analyze in real time who is entering Europe, who is traveling or traveled last week, how many, and who is going in and out, said Adjaoute. “Can you believe that France and Belgium found he went to Syria and came back? If they had shared the information, they would have some indication of how to find the man. They were lucky one of them threw his phone on a garbage dump in St. Denis and they were able to locate them.” Good thing because they were going to attack the Paris business district of La Defense and planned another attack on Charles DeGaulle Airport, said Adjaoute. “The phone allowed the police to do a digital footprint.” What Brighterion brings to the market is the same technology it uses for anti-money laundering. “We know in UK [where it monitors more than 60 percent of business] how a business is operating, whom they are they wiring money to. We have a 360-degree view of the relationships, so we will be able to spot if something is abnormal,” he explained.
  4. Google will remove YouTube’s Webcam Capture feature, which lets users record videos with webcams right on YouTube with no uploading required, after January 16, 2016. When you use Webcam Capture now, you’ll see a little warning near the top of the screen about the feature’s upcoming disappearance. Webcam Capture first showed up way back in 2006, a short time after Google acquired YouTube. It uses Adobe Flash, and it’s accessible through YouTube’s upload page. But these days the feature is just not popular. “Previously, if you had a webcam built in or connected to your computer, you could record a webcam video on YouTube and upload it directly to the site,” the update to the support page states. “This feature will be turned off because it is rarely used and is built on technology that is no longer supported.” YouTube is one of the most popular services on the Internet, with more than 1 billion users. People spend a lot of time on the service. On mobile, the average viewing session is 40 minutes long. But that doesn’t mean the service will stay stagnant. The support page points out that users can still record webcam videos through apps like Photo Booth on Mac and Camera on Windows and then upload them through the YouTube site. Cameras on mobile devices can record videos that can then be uploaded through the YouTube app.
  5. Microsoft Research has come in first place in several categories for the sixth annual ImageNet image recognition competition. Technology from Microsoft was able to outperform systems from Google, Intel, Qualcomm, and Tencent, as well as entries from startups and academic labs, according to the results. The winning system from Microsoft researchers Kaiming He, Xiangyu Zhang, Shaoqing Ren, and Jian Sun is called “Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition.” It will be detailed in an upcoming paper, according to a Microsoft blog post. The technology is notable partly because of its complexity.
  6. While much of the talk about Facebook has been around its social network and messaging services, there’s another growing segment that the company is eager to talk about: Facebook at Work. The company has always stuck to its mission of connecting people, and so far it’s been successful, helping more than 1.55 billion people do just that every month. But can Facebook succeed in enterprise software? There are many companies that want to be the de facto social network for the workplace, including Microsoft’s Yammer, Salesforce Chatter, VMware’s Socialcast, Jive, and, to a certain degree, Slack. But Facebook is hoping it has an advantage that nobody can beat: the incredible familiarity that people have with its platform. Because Facebook at Work offers users the same experience they’d have on Facebook as an individual, it lacks the learning curve that other services may have. Julien Codorniou, Facebook’s director of global platform partnerships, told VentureBeat that the selling point behind its service is that it’s aimed at giving a voice to all users, from the chief executive to the “foot soldier” on the ground. He explained that competitors target and deploy in technical areas for engineers, developers, or startups. But Facebook is banking on its familiarity to win over entire companies. Codorniou said that there are already “very engaged users and there’s no training needed — something that’s unique in enterprise software.” Facebook at Work is still in beta and is free right now. A company spokesperson told us that eventually it’ll adopt a freemium model where the core service is free, but features like analytics, support, or third-party integrations will come at a price. It’s said that the full launch of this service will happen some time in 2016, but no specific timetable has been set. Facebook at Work has been gaining steam over the past year and today announced that it has signed its first global tourism company: Club Méditerranée, better known as Club Med. The addition brings on board more than 13,000 employees from across 26 countries and 110 nationalities. Club Med will use this technology to help connect all of its teams as it strives to enhance the guest experience. The company’s chief marketing and digital officer, Anne Browaeys-Level, said in a statement: “Our mission is to please our customers when they stay at Club Med resorts. This mission feeds our culture, where we strive to be transparent, multicultural, and innovative. We’re always looking for new ways of fostering this culture across the whole company.” Facebook at Work is mobile-first, which particularly benefits Club Med, as many of its employees have never touched a personal computer before, but they know about mobile devices. People are often not only familiar with smartphones, but also with Facebook, so the logical connection to Facebook at Work is pretty straightforward. The inclusion of automatic translation makes the service even more appealing, as language barriers are reduced and decisions can be made faster. The addition of Club Med as a customer comes a couple of months after Facebook announced it had onboarded 100,000 workers from the Royal Bank of Scotland, which gave Facebook at Work its (at that time) biggest customer. With its Club Med partnership, Facebook will be able to assess whether its enterprise solution can really work across all geographies and industries. It has already struck similar deals within the financial industry, thanks to the Royal Bank of Scotland, and also with Heineken (food and beverage), Coldwell Banker (real estate), HootSuite (technology), Lagardère Active (media), as well as others. Over the next few months, it’s safe to assume that Facebook will continue to tout customers that it signs for Facebook at Work, demonstrating that the service has legs and can compete alongside established incumbents. It’s following a plan similar to that of file management service Box, when, prior to going public, it began showcasing which industries it had become tailored to (such as the healthcare space, legal/political, and others). At the end of the day, Facebook at Work is going for brand identity. People’s familiarity with Facebook is an unquestionable asset, and businesses know they can accelerate without needing extra training or product support. That seems to work for signing on big names, but Facebook at Work still only has more than 300 customers, and it’s still not ready to just let any interested company sign up. Once it does, the real test will be how quickly the company can grow its customer base.

  9. More people in India have access to free Internet services now that Facebook has greatly expanded the reach of its Free Basics app in the country. The company’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, announced that everyone in India can now access health, education, job, and communication services through his company’s Internet.org app — for free. The nationwide coverage is through Internet.org’s partnership with the Reliance network, which was formed in February. Originally only six states in the country had access to available services: Tamil Nadu, Mahararashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Kerala, and Telangana. With Free Basics, users can take advantage of reading the latest news, engaging with their local government, search for jobs, and find answers about issues around pregnancy, childcare, and more. They can also get information about local transit and sporting events. Zuckerberg has long had a desire to see Internet.org spread throughout the world’s third largest democracy. India is also home to 130 million Facebook users; by granting wider Internet access to people, there’s a good chance that more of the country’s 1.25 billion people could sign up. The Internet.org initiative has already helped 15 million people around the world get better connected.
  10. If you’re running out of space on your PS4, a hard drive replacement may be in order—and it’s so easy you can do it yourself in no time at all. Here’s how. Not only will this get you more space, but if you buy a faster drive than the pre-installed one, you can even decrease those loading times a bit, too. We used this HGST drive, which is a great balance between price and performance. The process is pretty dead simple, but if you aren’t used to opening up your gadgets, you might be a little intimidated. Don’t be. You only need to unscrew a few screws, slide in the drive, screw it all back up, and plug in a flash drive with the latest PS4 software to get everything up and running. Check out the video above to see the process in action.
  11. Publishing analytics provider Parse.ly wanted to find out where web traffic for 2015’s top news stories came from — search engines or social networks. The company found that social media continues to account for a large and growing portion of traffic, depending upon the content of the news story. Parse.ly tracks and analyzes the site traffic of more than 400 publishers, including Business Insider, Reuters, The Atlantic, and New Republic. The results: For the study Parse.ly said it identified the top seven news events of the year based on the most-read stories in its network. “We only considered stories that had one ‘event’ at their core (sorry Donald Trump and the Kardashian clan!), then we normalized the data based on site size because we didn’t want our biggest sites to dictate the trends,” the company said in a blog post. People searched to find the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao story more than they relied on social media, the study showed. Same thing for the Ashley Madison data breach story. But in all other stories studied, social media drove the larger number of referrals. The balance between search and social is one of the key factors in brand advertisers’ decisions about ad spend and creative. New York-based Parse.ly launched back in 2012.
  12. Apple SIM, the SIM card that lets iPad users switch between participating carriers in different countries, has launched in Japan through a partnership with KDDI. Apple confirmed on its website that it will offer coverage through au, a mobile network operated by the leading Japanese telecom (h/t AppleInsider). Compatible with iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular models, Apple SIM is geared toward travelers and currently offers cellular data plans in 90 countries and territories. The large roster of countries is thanks in large part to its partnership with GigSky, which offers international data coverage. Apple SIM signed a partnership with GigSky in June. Before that deal was inked, Apple SIM was limited mostly to users in the United States and United Kingdom, where its initial partners—AT&T, EE, Sprint, and T Mobile—operate. According to Apple SIM’s webpage, while the service is available in several countries within the Asia-Pacific region, including India, Bangladesh, Laos, and Cambodia, Japan is currently the only East Asian country it has launched in. Its availability in other countries (which Apple SIM’s appeal to its core market of travelers hinges on) depends on striking deals with local carriers.
  13. Investment management firm Wealthfront continues to find itself in deep with Facebook, at least when it comes to its talent. Wealthfront has announced it has named Mike Schroepfer, the chief technology officer for the social networking company, to its board, where he will likely play a big part in advising on how to scale Wealthfront moving forward. “Many companies in the financial services industry believe software is simply a tool that can be purchased with a large enough checkbook,” Wealthfront chief executive Adam Nash wrote in a blog post. “We believe there is huge value in having a technology culture built more like Facebook than like Merrill Lynch. As a result, we want to ensure that we have access to the best technology talent at every level of the organization, from our software engineers all the way to our Board of Directors.” Besides the addition of “Schrep,” as the Facebook CTO is affectionately known by his friends and colleagues, Wealthfront has hired several former executives from Facebook, including Kate Aronowitz, who led design; Ali Rosenthal, who handled partnerships; and Andy Johns, who oversaw growth. Wealthfront’s platform lets clients build and manage their diverse investment portfolio without needing to go through a traditional bank or private wealth manager. The company is built on the idea that “everyone deserves sophisticated investment advice.” A spokesperson told VentureBeat that the company is now managing “nearly $3 billion” in client assets.
  14. Reliable phone leaker Evan Blass, @evleaks on Twitter TWTR -4.00%, has suggested that AT&T T -1.18% is already testing two new Samsung phones with the model numbers SM-G930A and SM-G935A which will likely turn out to be the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Samsung has already given hints that it will move forward a phone launch, and with CES happening in early January that seems like a logical launch platform for new devices. In the past Samsung’s phones have tended to launch a little bit later in the year. Last year everything was confirmed at Mobile World Congress after months of rumour and speculation. The big question I have is simply “why”. I think the S6 and S6 Edge are two of the best phones ever made on any platform. Rumours of weaker-than-expected sales have blighted Samsung and affected it share price, but the phones have recently picked up in sales volume, thanks to the natural lowering of prices as the phones age. What can the S7 and S7 Edge bring that will make all those people who didn’t buy the S6 reach for their wallets? Who knows. Perhaps a reduction in price would be the biggest driver for Samsung, but the firm wants to sell in the high-end of the Android market, so dropping the price down too much simply isn’t an option.
