      Stream Deck Update 5.1 - Introducing Pages, Automatic Channel Whitelisting, and Audio Claim Dispute Form

      reddit.com - 📃 Pages is an exciting new functionality for Stream Deck, adding an intuitive way to organize actions for quick access.
       
      The same way you'd flip through the pages of a book, Pages lets you flip through different key layouts (otherwise known as Profiles).
      With Pages come three new actions:
      Next/Previous Page: navigate through pages one by one.
      Go To Page: go to a specific page number.
      Page Indicator: displays the current page number.
      Note: When creating your first page, one key is reserved for the Next Page action. All subsequent pages will have a Previous and Next Page action. These actions can be moved but cannot be deleted, otherwise navigating pages becomes somewhat difficult.

      Facebook VP disputes report claiming the platform knows about multiple flaws it doesn’t fix

      theverge.com - Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Facebook’s vice president of global affairs criticized a series of stories by the Wall Street Journal that reported the social network is aware of numerous problems across its platforms that cause harm to users, but does little to fix them.
      In a post on Facebook’s blog, Nick Clegg wrote that while it was “absolutely legitimate for us to be held to account for how we deal with” some of the issues outlined in the Journal reporting, the stories “contained deliberate mischaracterizations of what we are trying to do, and conferred egregiously false motives to Facebook’s leadership and employees.”
      This week, the Journal published a sweeping series of deeply reported stories on Facebook, based on its review of internal documents, concluding...

      Where are Apple’s new Macs? Here’s what we’re still expecting Apple to announce this year

      theverge.com - Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Apple’s “California Streaming” event was packed with announcements, from the iPhone 13 and forthcoming Apple Watch Series 7 to a sixth-gen iPad Mini. We expected much of this, yet, there were a number of things we had anticipated that Apple might announce but didn’t, including new MacBook Pros and next-gen AirPods.
      However, it looks like there’s still hope they may make an appearance soon, especially given that October is historically when Apple will showcase new Macs. According to Bloomberg’s reliable Apple-watcher, Mark Gurman, Apple will likely hold at least one more online event within the next “several weeks,” which means Apple may still reveal the no-shows from today before the end of 2021. Here are some of the more noteworthy...

      Should you wait for the Apple Watch Series 7?

      theverge.com - The Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger display, and looks like an Apple Watch. | Image: Apple One of the big rumors heating up before Apple’s “California Streaming” iPhone announcement event about the Apple Watch Series 7 wound up fizzling out as soon as the new smartwatch was unveiled. The speculation was that Apple would perform the most significant overhaul of its smartwatch ever, aligning its design with that of the iPhone 12 and 13 — namely, flat sides and a more squared-off look with a larger display and smaller bezels. We got the larger display and slimmer bezels part, but the Apple Watch Series 7 still mostly looks like its predecessors at casual glance.
      The biggest change to the Series 7 is indeed physically bigger: the display. Apple increased the screen sizes to 41mm and 45mm, and with a thicker glass top the display...

      xCloud and Xbox Remote play are officially available on Windows

      theverge.com - Image: Microsoft Microsoft has announced that its xCloud service, officially known as Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Xbox Remote Play are now available to everyone with the Xbox app on Windows 10 (or 11). These features on PC rolled out to Xbox Insiders as a beta last month, and have been available on phones for a while, but them being officially available on PC is nice to see too. It’s giving you another option for how you want to play, whether the game is running on your personal console or Microsoft’s servers.
      Xbox Cloud Gaming, which seems like a natural fit for PCs that don’t have the power to run the games themselves, has been available on Windows for a few months through web browsers, but it’s a nice step forward that the service is now in a native app,...

      How the iPhone 13, Mini, Pro and Max compare to Android rivals — and vs. iPhone 12

      theverge.com - Image: Apple Apple has announced its new iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which feature better cameras, 120Hz screens, new processors (which Apple claims are the fastest in a phone, period), better battery life, and smaller notches compared to their predecessors. But should you upgrade from the iPhone 12, and is Apple beating the Android competition? Here’s how Apple stacks up to Samsung, OnePlus, Google, and its own previous devices on paper.
      One thing to keep in mind before we dive in is that specs don’t tell the whole story. There’s the obvious difficult comparisons (how does an Apple A15 chip stack up against a Snapdragon 888, and how do you compare traditional phones to folding ones), as well as the small details...

      Valve’s Steam Deck is now real enough to send to developers

      theverge.com - Image: Valve Valve’s foray into video game handhelds, the Steam Deck, has started shipping out to developers. The company opened up requests for early versions of the device on September 2nd to developers, and now it seems like those devices are heading out.

As Valve explains: “the dev-kit program gives us the chance to guide game developers through the process of getting their games on Steam Deck while also continuing to gather their feedback as we prepare for the official launch at the end of the year.”

      Amazon One’s palm-scanning tech makes first move into entertainment venues

      theverge.com - Amazon’s palm-scanning technology, Amazon One, has always been about more than just fast payments. Really, it’s about Amazon controlling and verifying identities, with the company hoping to deploy its service in public spaces like offices and stadiums. Today, Amazon announced the tech’s first launch in an entertainment venue as part of a partnership with ticketing firm AXS. Amazon One will be available to validate entry into Colorado’s famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, an open-air venue built into a rocky outcrop.
      It’s the first time the technology has been deployed outside Amazon and Whole Food stores, and Amazon says it expects the tech will be added “to more AXS ticketed venues in the future.” People can enroll into the scheme at...

      Samsung’s latest monitor has a pop-up webcam with Windows Hello support

      theverge.com - Windows Hello support lets you log in to Windows with just your face. | Image: Samsung Samsung’s Webcam Monitor S4 comes with all the work-from-home accessories you could need built right in. It’s got 2W stereo speakers for listening to colleagues, an HD webcam so they can see you, a microphone so they can hear you, and a USB hub to cut down on the amount of ports needed on a laptop or desktop. The monitor is available now, Samsung says, and costs $319.99 in the US.
      The 24-inch, 1080p monitor’s built-in webcam is neatly integrated, with a pop-up design that keeps things looking tidy when you’re not on video calls. As a bonus, the design doubles as a privacy shutter for the webcam to help prevent accidental (or malicious) appearances on camera. It’s not automated like on many phones. Instead, the webcam is revealed by...

      Twitter is once more accepting requests for verification

      theverge.com - Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Kick the football, Charlie Brown! You’ll definitely get it this time! And while you’re at it, why not apply to be verified on Twitter? There’s no way that can go wrong either.
      The news: after temporarily halting new applications for its revamped verification process last month, Twitter announced it’s “back to rolling out access to request a blue badge.” The company said it put a pause on new applications in order to improve “the application flow and review process.” That may have something to do with the fake accounts that the company accidentally verified in July, but maybe Twitter has now learned from its mistakes.
