Facebook introduces live 4K streaming

The list of supported cameras is still limited though and I don’t know anyone who has any of the following cameras: Giroptic iO, Insta360 Nano, Insta360 Air, Insta360 Pro, ION360 U, Nokia Ozo, Z CAM S1, 360Fly HD, 360Fly 4K, and 360Fly 4K Pro

If you do have one of these then I wish you luck streaming 4k over-the-air.

Advertisers “know” who you are using your smartphone’s accelerometer

There is yet another way or yet another hack to track anonymous users on smartphones. A security researcher by the name of Hristo Bojinov has discovered that each accelerometer in a smartphone has a unique fingerprint. There is a more precise tech explanation that you can explore here.

Specialized code running in the smartphone browser can access this unique fingerprint and remember you.

I hope you’re not paranoid…

Barley – edit your site as if it’s a word document

There are many CMS (content management system) out there and Barley is a new one with a slight twist. You don’t need to know any code at all.

Barley allows you to chose from a slew of predefined (designed and built) templates. The user can then edit and add the content right on the site. All you got to do is login to the site through a small login widget. The service will cost you $18/month which includes the hosting. Apparently it registers 1,000 companies on daily basis – that’s $18,000 a day! Mmmm, I love me some barley!
