Snapchat Announces New Snap Originals and a Creator Marketplace

The marketplace will allow creators and businesses to easily work together through advertising and marketing.

Spent lockdown burning through everything video streaming services have to offer? Looking to expand your mind even further? Check out the new slate of Snap Originals, set to debut this year.

“Made-for-mobile shows started on Snapchat,” the company wrote in a blog announcement, boasting a library of more than 128 original series and an impressive Gen Z following.

“Our new slate is a reflection of our community—what they care about, and the stories and personalities they love,” the blog said. “From shining a light on social issues and racial injustice, to honest conversations on mental health, to the impacts of climate change—our shows speak to the issues most important to the Snapchat Generation.”

Look for unscripted stories featuring Megan Thee Stallion (with her celebrity friends and their pets), Charlie and Dixie D’Amelio, and LGBT icon Manny MUA; a bunch of teen docuseries; a futuristic YA drama; and a sketch comedy show starring you.

More content offerings means more monetization opportunities. Enter the Creator Marketplace, where businesses can partner with mobile creators “in a scaled and seamless way.” Opening later this month for all businesses to partner with a select group of AR creators through 2021, the forum will expand next year to include all Snap creators.
“For businesses, this is a new opportunity to leverage the creativity and expertise of Snap creators—who know the Snapchat Generation best—to drive ROI [return on investment] for Snapchat marketing activity,” the blog said. “For creators, it opens the door to greater partnership opportunities with all kinds of brands so that creators can build their own business on Snapchat.”

Database Reveals Over 200K People Involved in Posting Fake Reviews on Amazon

Database Reveals Over 200K People Involved in Posting Fake Reviews on Amazon

Database Reveals Over 200K People Involved in Posting Fake Reviews on Amazon

The data shows third-party Amazon vendors working with customers to reward fake, positive reviews.

Can you trust the reviews that appear for products offered by third-party vendors on Amazon? An open database discovered on Amazon’s servers reveals you can’t, and it poses a big problem for the company.

The cybersecurity experts at SafetyDetectives recently discovered an open AWS ElasticSearch database that contained a “treasure trove” of data related to organized fake reviews on Amazon. The database consisted of over 13 million records and 7GB of data, including direct messages between Amazon vendors and customers who provided fake review scores. In total, over 200,000 people are involved and the evidence points to this being an operation run out of China targeting both the US and Europe.

So how does it work? Amazon vendors involved in the scheme produce a list of products for which they want to generate five-star reviews. Customers sign up to take part, then purchase those items on Amazon and wait a few days after receiving them before posting their review. A message is then sent to the vendor along with a link proving the review is live and details of a PayPal account. The vendor then rewards the customer by refunding the purchase, but allowing the customer to keep the product.

As the refund is handled through PayPal, Amazon has no record of it occurring and therefore it has no reason to question the validity of the review. As far as its system is concerned, a legitimate purchase was made and a review was left in a timely manner. But for other customers considering purchasing the same product, they are unknowingly being deceived.

Amazon does moderate reviews, but the vendors performing this deception are well aware of the process and checks. The database also contained messages where customers are given rules to follow when creating a review. For example, a specific word count must be exceeded and in some cases a video is requested to accompany the text in a bid to make it look real and avoid a red flag from moderators.

Unfortunately for Amazon, and all online vendors for that matter, the fight against fake reviews can only ever be managed rather than solved. But data leaks like this certainly help show how organized the process is and the techniques used to avoid detection, which hopefully helps improve moderation systems.

Nintendo Switch With 7-Inch OLED Display Expected This Year

Nintendo Switch With 7-Inch OLED Display Expected This Year

A Switch with a larger, more vibrant display could be on store shelves this summer.
nintendo-switch-repair-pcexpertservices

Nintendo won’t talk about what’s coming next for its Switch hardware, but a new leak suggests we are going to get a new Switch model with a larger, OLED touch screen before the end of 2021.

The Switch model on the market today uses a 6.2-inch 720p LCD panel, while the Switch Lite uses a smaller, 5.5-inch 720p LCD panel. As Bloomberg reports, “people familiar with the plan” believe Nintendo is planning to introduce a new model with a 7-inch 720p Samsung OLED panel, with Samsung expected to start shipping around a million units of the display a month starting in June.

By switching to OLED, Nintendo can offer more vibrant colors and deeper blacks while at the same time keeping power draw to a minimum. The move to a larger panel also suggests a slightly larger Switch, which would allow for a larger battery. However, it’s also possible this new Switch could be the same size as the existing model, but with smaller screen bezels.

Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti for Laptops

Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti for Laptops

If the 3050 Ti is real, the GPU will probably be packed in laptops under $1,000, opening the door for more affordable PC gaming with the latest graphics technology.

Asus may have accidentally leaked details about an Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPU coming to laptops. The GPU model is mentioned in the tech specs for one of Asus’s latest laptops, the TUF Dash F15, which went on sale last month.

The product’s web page originally listed a mysterious “GN20-P0” chip under the graphics options you could buy for the laptop. But on Friday the tech specs had been updated to explicitly state the name RTX 3050 Ti.

Based on the web page, the 3050 Ti will feature 4GBs of GDDR6 RAM, which is down from the 6GBs found in the laptop-based RTX 3060.

But if the 3050 Ti is real, the GPU will probably be packed in laptops under $1,000, opening the door for more affordable PC gaming with the latest graphics technology. Currently, the TUF Dash F15 with the RTX 3060 is being sold for $1,099.

In January, Nvidia announced the first trio of RTX 3000 GPUs for laptops with the RTX 3060, 3070, and 3080. PC vendors including Alienware, Gigabyte, and Razer have all begun to incorporate them into their gaming laptops at prices from $1,000 to $2,000 plus.

The GPUs also provide an alternative for anyone struggling to buy the desktop graphics cards in the RTX 3000 series, which continue to sell out in minutes at all the major retailers.

However, if you decide to buy a laptop with an RTX 3000 GPU, we’d advise you to first check out reviews of the specific product model. In recent tests the laptop-based RTX 3070, including on the Asus TUF Dash F15, and it is noticed that performance can vary depending on how the GPU is implemented on the hardware. It’s also important to note GPUs built for laptops usually pack less performance than the desktop versions.

Why is my Mac Slow?

Why is my Mac Slow?

If you find your Mac is running slowly, there are a number of potential causes that you can check.

Your computer’s startup disk may not have enough free disk space. To make disk space available, you can move files to another disk or an external storage device, then delete files you no longer need on the startup disk.

macOS can also help you optimize storage by storing files in the cloud and helping you identify files you no longer need.

Is your computer slow? Keep crashing? We've got a fix
