Zuckerberg Told Facebook Staff to Use Android After Apple CEO’s Diss


Don’t expect Mark Zuckerberg to buy his friends and family new iPhones this holiday season.

Apple CEO Tim Cook’s thinly veiled criticism of the social network earlier this year “infuriated” the Facebook chief, according to a comprehensive report from The New York Times. Zuckerberg “ordered his management team to use only Android phones, since the operating system has far more users than Apple’s,” according to insiders who spoke with the Times.

The tech beef started simmering earlier this year, after Facebook was hit by the Cambridge Analytica data leak, when up to 87 million users had their profiles unknowingly accessed by the political firm. Cook, when asked by CNBC what advice he’d give to Zuckerberg on handling the crisis, shot back “I would’t be in this situation.” Cook then patted Apple on the back, saying, “We’re not going to traffic in your personal life,” before adding “privacy to us is a human right. It’s a civil liberty.”


Google releases night sight mode for Pixel 3

It's no secret Google has been flexing its computational photography and machine-learning skills to enhance shots taken with its Pixel phones. And now, Google has just changed the smartphone camera game with the release of the Night Sight mode for its Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones.

Announced at its October Pixel 3 launch event, Google boasted Night Sight as a significant leap forward for taking night photos — useful for exposing colors and details lost in the shadows.

Pixel 3 tends to shoot pictures that are more contrasty, more saturated and artificially sharpened than an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy.
