Instagram gets WhatsApp-style walkie-talkie voice messages

Facebook-owned Instagram has just added one of the best features from its sister app, WhatsApp: direct voice messages. Just as in WhatsApp, you can find it in any conversation (including group chats) in the Direct messaging section of the app. Tap and hold the microphone button located in the text entry box, and you can record a message to send to your contacts.

The Fuji X-H1: Mike's Verdict

It's human nature to chase extremes, to decide that one thing or another is "good" for some reason and then to keep exaggerating that quality or property. Consider how, in recent years, the fashion at Apple, Inc., has been to make everything thin, light, and stylish. But with personal vehicles, which in the USA now means SUVs and trucks*, the opposite extreme has become fashionable, to the point where single individual human beings feel it's reasonable to convey their fat butts to the hardware s...

Instagram Just Added the Ability to Send Voice Recordings, and People Have Mixed Feelings

‘Fyre’ Trailer: Netflix Takes You Inside the Greatest Party that Never Happened, The Fyre Festival

The Fyre Festival was sold as a luxury music festival hosted on a private island where guests could live like rock stars – for a hefty price. Once attendees arrived, however, chaos reigned. Instead of fancy villas and gourmet meals, they were greeted with tents and – perhaps worst of all – cheese sandwiches. A scam was afoot, and lawsuits followed. Netflix will take viewers inside the disastrous non-festival with the new documentary Fyre, hitting the streaming service in January. Watch the Fyre...

Graphic Design Trends of 2019

Bold typography Type is a fundamental part of graphic design. As such, it’s no surprise every year that designers take type in a different direction. Recently we’ve noted an increase in the use of type as a bold, often primary element in design. This goes along with the general trend of design becoming more simple and direct. When you look at the current state of media, the use of bold typography makes sense. With advertisers and marketers fighting to get their message across, using stark, in-y...
