Searching to help Mexico City and other top trends this week

Each week, we take a look at the most-searched trends (with help and data from the team at Google News Lab). Here are a few top trends from this week:

Mexico City earthquake

A fatal earthquake rocked Mexico City this week, and people turned to Google to find out how they can aid the recovery. Two of the top questions in the U.S. were “What fault line is Mexico City on?” and “Where to donate for the earthquake in Mexico?” Those questions were both in the top five searched questions in Mexico City as well, along with “What is needed in the shelters?” and “Where is the school that collapsed from the earthquake?”

From court to screen

Wednesday marked the anniversary of the famed tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, and starting today, Emma Stone and Steve Carell portray them on the big screen. The release caused a racket in Search: Interest in “women’s tennis” spiked 140 percent higher than “men’s tennis.” (Game.) Billie Jean King was searched 230 percent more than Bobby Riggs. (Set.) And interest in Emma Stone was 290 percent higher than Steve Carell (match!).

Demagor-gone searching

One a scale from one to Eleven, how excited are you for “Stranger Things” season two? Unless you’ve been trapped in the Upside Down, you know that the show is coming back soon. We’ll help you out with a few of the top-searched questions this week: “When is season 2 of Stranger Things coming out?” (October 27), “Who went missing on Stranger Things?” (RIP Barb), and “How many Emmys did Stranger Things win?” (Zero.) It may have lost to “Handmaid’s Tale” at the Emmy’s, but it’s spooking the competition in other ways—“Stranger Things costume” was searched 1,040 percent more than “Handmaid’s Tale costume” in the last week. There’s only a few weeks to go, so get your Eggos ready.

Will it be a Graceful comeback?

Fans thought they said goodbye to “Will & Grace” in 2006 but now they’re searching, “What time will Will & Grace be on Hulu?” That’s right, the beloved NBC series is making a comeback on Hulu next week (all one hundred and ninety four episodes are now on Hulu as well). Other popular questions include, “How many episodes are there in Will & Grace season 1?” and “Is Leslie Jordan returning to the Will & Grace reboot?” (Karen Walker isn’t happy about that one.) There are a lot of “Will & Grace” lovers in Rhode Island, Iowa and North Dakota, the states that searched the most for the show this week.

Flu fighters

Flu season is around the corner, and people are aching to learn more. Search was congested with lots of queries, but the top ones were: “How long is a flu shot good for?” “How bad is flu season this year?” and “How to stay healthy during flu season? People are searching the most for “stomach flu,” followed by “keto flu.” Top regions searching for “flu season” were Delaware, North Carolina and Louisiana.

iOS 11 battery life: Top tips for fixing the main problem iPhone users are suffering after Apple upgrade

Some iPhone users are reporting battery life issues after installing the latest version of iOS .

But if you’re one of the people finding that your phone is dying quicker than usual after making the upgrade, there are a few things you can do to mitigate the damage.

For starters, it’s a good idea to wait for a couple of days and see if the problem sorts itself out.

When you first install a new version of iOS, your phone starts performing a complete index of everything on it – not just photos and messages but also background settings and cached data. This obviously can put a strain on your battery life as it’s demanding more from the phone’s functions.

Once the indexing has finished, the phone’s battery life should return to normal.

In fact, Apple’s latest software should improve your battery life in the long run. The tech giant has had 12 months to redesign the software and make it more efficient.

If there are proven issues with the system then we expect Apple to offer some kind of a patch in order to fix it. However, if you’re still having problems, these tried-and-tested methods should help in the meantime.

1/ Dim your display

One of the biggest energy suckers is the smartphone’s colourful display. Most smartphones will automatically adapt the brightness according to ambient light levels.

To save even more energy it’s worth popping into the settings to manually change the brightness to the lowest level.

2/ Reduce the screen timeout time

Google Pixel 2 price revealed in latest leak – and it’s cheaper than the iPhone X

While you’re at it you can also change the settings so the screen turns off more quickly after you put the phone down. Look for an option called “screen timeout” in an Android phone or “auto-lock” in an iPhone and you can then tweak how long the screen stays on – set it to the shortest possible time.

3/ Close apps you aren’t using

Most modern smartphones now let you multi-task with apps – so you can be composing a Facebook post but then quickly pop into your internet browser to find a link – and you won’t lose the original post.

The problem is, this means you can easily leave many apps running in the background, consuming precious battery life.

4/ Turn off your wi-fi

When you’re out and about your phone will constantly be searching for wi-fi networks to connect to, which can zap the battery life. It’s worth switching the wi-fi off when you’re on the move and only turning it back on when you reach your destination.

5/ Don’t use vibrate mode

The power needed to run the vibration motor of your phone is far greater than the power needed for a ringtone. So if you’re trying to make your battery last longer it’s best to turn off the vibrate mode. If you’re trying to be discreet in a meeting or at work, then it’s worth just switching to silent.

Even if you do all of the above, you’re still not going to get the battery life you were accustomed to in the 1990s. If you can’t handle that, it might be worth taking the extreme nostalgia option :

6/ Go back to the Nokia 3210

(Image: Nokia)

The Nokia 3210 is the greatest phone ever made. It might not have done any of the snazzy non-phone things that modern devices do – fitness tracking, altitude sensing, eye-testing fandangery – but it was great at sending texts, making calls, having a long battery life and not smashing even when you threw it across a room in a supermodel-esque rage.

Best all-in-one PCs 2017: top compact AIO desktops

All-in-ones aren’t your average PCs. They’re every desktops with integrated displays, frequently complemented by a mix of laptop and desktop components. For these reasons and more, they’ve garnered an unfair reputation of being inferior to their full-on desktop counterparts.

Let it be known, however, that all-in-ones have their advantages. These self-contained PC setups typically require less desk space than a desktop tower, monitor and all their accompanying accoutrements. At the same time, they don’t produce a nest of cables for guests to trip over. 

Because of the inherent convergence that an all-in-one boasts, PC makers can rethink their design strategies entirely, thereby resulting in more innovative efforts such as the . Ultimately, this only benefits us – the users. 

Below are the best all-in-ones handpicked and regularly updated in traditional TechRadar fashion.

How to Get Into Instagram’s ‘Top Posts’ for a Hashtag

Instagram Hashtags

Whenever you browse through a hashtag on Instagram, the very first thing you’ll see is a three by three grid of the ‘Top Posts’ for that hashtag. Because of their visibility, getting featured can provide a lot of exposure, possibly helping you to engage a wider audience and gain more followers in the process.

How Instagram’s ‘Top Posts’ Work

Essentially the ‘Top Posts’ on Instagram are a picked out by an algorithm that attempts to rank posts within that hashtag. Unlike the ‘Explore’ page that is user-specific, every viewer sees exactly the same ‘Top Posts’ for a given hashtag.

Although no one knows precisely how Instagram’s algorithm selects ‘Top Posts’, it has been proven to measure engagement and its growth. More specifically, it tracks both the ‘likes’ and ‘comments’ that a post receives, as well as how much they have grown recently.

Simply put a post that has acquired more likes and comments recently has better chances of appearing in Instagram’s ‘Top Posts’.

Getting into ‘Top Posts’

Now that you understand how Instagram’s ‘Top Posts’ work, you should already have an idea of what it will take to get into them. In particular you will want to:

  • Aim to hit the ‘Top Posts’ on less popular hashtags

Because the ‘Top Posts’ section is hashtag-specific, you will want to aim for hashtags that aren’t that popular. Popular hashtags have a larger audience, but the competition is much stiffer and unless you have lots of followers you’ll find it tough to gain enough likes or comments to get into the ‘Top Posts’.

  • Mix in popular hashtags to increase engagement

Although you will want to aim to be in the ‘Top Posts’ for less popular hashtags, that doesn’t mean you should ignore popular hashtags entirely. In fact you should make sure that you mix in popular hashtags as well in your posts so that you can benefit from their wider audience and gain more likes and comments.

  • Encourage comments with a call to action

One other way to increase engagement is to try to encourage comments by placing a call to action in your caption. In this case you’ll want to use a caption that is likely to provoke a response – either by asking your viewers a direct question, or through more subtle prompts.

  • Time your posts to maximize engagement

It may take a bit of tracking and experimentation, but you should try to figure out when your audience tends to be most active and time your posts accordingly. You can repost other peoples content using a screen capture tool. Typically it is said that it is best to post in the evening (i.e. between 7 pm to 9 pm) – but that can vary on a case by case basis.

Apple and Samsung plummet down social responsibility table, meanwhile Lego dethrones Google at the top

The world’s largest smartphone producers, Apple and Samsung, have suffered a steep decline in the public’s perception of their corporate social responsibility efforts, according to research from RepTrak.

A study of the world’s 100 most reputable companies in terms of CSR performance, compiled from more than 170,000 ratings across the world’s 15 largest economies, found that Lego, at least in the public’s eyes, best covered the following criteria: “Support of good causes, positive societal influence and environmental responsibility, openness and transparency, ethical behaviour and fair business practices, and fair employee rewards, employee wellbeing and equal opportunities.”

The Danish toy and media company dethroned Google from a three-year spell at the top of the list. Google slipped into third behind rival Microsoft. Disney, BMW, Intel, Robert Bosch, Cisco, Rolls Royce and Colgate-Palmolive followed.

The top ten was comprised with four tech companies, notably companies from the sector dominated the list and typically scored highest, followed with entries from hospitality and pharmaceutical industries.

Volkswagen endured the steepest decline placing it just on the list in 100th place, although its emissions scandal has hardly dented its income, the brand has suffered a blow.

Apple dropped to 49th; on this James Bickford, managing director at the Reputation Institute, said: “Apple experienced backlash in 2016 when it was discovered that conditions within iPhone factories were so poor that they installed safety nets to prevent workers from killing themselves. This lead to a mass protest which gained widespread media attention, creating a negative perception of Apple’s workplace environment.”

He speculated that the upcoming launch of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will impact the wider perception of the company. It comes during a period where Apple is now only the third largest smartphone producer in the world, slipping behind Chinese firm Huawei. Samsung, the most powerful player in this space also suffered a decline to 89th place. On this Bickford said: “In Samsung’s case, the reason for the decline could be attributed to the Galaxy Note crisis of 2016, the overheating batteries caused harm to customers and ultimately lead to Samsung having a negative societal influence.”

The research also unveiled that good CSR drives business results, Bickford concluded: “For an organisation, having a strong CSR agenda is important, because it ensures customers will do business with you, policymakers and regulators will give you license to operate, and potential employees will be more willing to work for you. CSR is increasingly a top driver of stakeholder support. It equates to good will and good business.”

Knoxville woman’s Samsung washer’s top violently detaches; she says she wasn’t notified of recall

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A Knoxville woman is asking why she never received a recall notice about her Samsung washing machine. The washer came apart two weeks ago with the top flying off. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

The manufacturer recalled certain washers 10 months ago. Almost 3 million top-loading machines were recalled last November because of reports of the washer becoming detached. WATE 6 On Your Side spoke with customers who said they were not getting the help they needed from Samsung after getting their recall notice.

At least one customer, a former Army combat nurse and mother of two, said she never received a notice and her washer looks like it exploded.

“Came home and this is what we came home to. It blew up. This is the top back here. This is the back of the washer, this is the front. So it came all the way out,” said Shannon Allred.

The impact carved a hole in her laundry room ceiling. Violent shaking pulled the machine at least two feet from the wall scraping the dryer along the way. No one had been home when the washer went haywire.

“And it gashed the side of our cabinet and counter top. The hoses are pulled tight,” she said.

Previous stories:

The top of the washer detached from the chassis, flew off and ended up on its side. Allred’s laundry from two weeks ago is still inside the tub for the repair people to see. The machine had been on medium spin when it spun out of control. Three rods held tight during the violent shaking, but a fourth one didn’t.

“We were not notified of a recall. We got nothing in the mail, nothing from Samsung did we receive,” she said.

This was her second Samsung in two years. Allred said the first one was replaced because it wouldn’t drain.

In early January, Shanika Moon was the first to tell WATE about her recalled Samsung and the delay in getting it fixed. Howard Rosichan said in mid-January despite the fix to his machine, he wasn’t happy.

“It still shakes, it still vibrates,” he said.

In February, Sonja Sharp said after weeks of calling a technician finally fixed her recalled washer. Samsung also provided Sharp with a warning label and an inlay on the control panel indicating which cycle to use.

While Allred’s washer is one of those recalled, she’s still waiting for assistance.

“Nobody has been out. Nobody has come to take pictures. We got an email that says send us information, we’ll look at it,” Allred said.

Allred has the receipt to her machine and notified Samsung.

“I think somebody from their company should have come out here and assessed the damage themselves,” she said.

Samsung called Allred on Monday and said it will replace her washer and dryer, her shredded bedding, and throw in $200 for her inconvenience.

Samsung told WATE 6 On Your Side the company is working hard to ensure customers are aware of the recall and the options available. The company said it’s actively communicating to recalled washer owners through direct communications, social media and in-store communication that it has mailed millions of home label kits to all known consumers who are affected by this recall.

“We have mailed millions of Home Label Kits to all known consumers who are impacted by this recall in an effort to educate them and encourage them to take advantage of the remedies available,” Samsung said in a statement.

Allred is pleased that Samsung has reached out to her. Samsung says she was mailed a home label kit in December, but she says she never knew about a recall.


This Samsung Galaxy S9 Concept Has An iPhone X-Like Top ‘Notch’

Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy Note 8 is now available in stores. Android fans and concept designers have now shifted focus to the next year’s Galaxy S9. Samsung’s rival Apple has just unveiled its brand new iPhone X with a bezel-less display and a top ‘notch.’ One concept designer tried to imagine a similar notch on Samsung’s next-gen flagship. This new Samsung Galaxy S9 concept highlights the all-screen front and the top cutout.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 concept ‘notch’ looks better than iPhone X

The iPhone X’s front design looks beautiful, though some believe it’s an odd design choice. The latest Samsung Galaxy S9 concept comes from the YouTube channel DBS Designing. Samsung’s current flagship phones have no side bezels, though there are still slim bezels at the top and bottom. The concept has an all-screen display with virtual navigation buttons at the bottom.

At the very top of the front panel, you’ll notice a slim cutout that houses the front camera, ear speaker, the iris scanner, and other sensors. This Samsung Galaxy S9 concept might have been inspired by the iPhone X’s top notch, but it looks far more sleek and beautiful than Apple’s phone. The iPhone X cutout is more pronounced than the one you see in DBS Designing’s concept.

Icons for time and date can be seen on the left side of the notch. Other icons such as WiFi, cellular strength, and battery are on the right side. The concept phone features a loudspeaker, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port at the bottom. The designers believe Samsung won’t ditch the 3.5mm audio jack even though its rivals such as Apple have got rid of the feature.

The concept phone has dual cameras on front as well as back

The Samsung Galaxy S9 concept phone is made out of glass and metal, similar to its predecessor. DBS Designing imagined the device featuring an Infinity OLED display with a Quad HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the display. That is unlikely to be true because Samsung is still struggling with the fingerprint scanner. The feature is expected to debut with the Galaxy Note 9 in the second half of 2018.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 concept runs Android 8.1 Oreo. It is powered by 6GB RAM and packs 128GB of internal storage. There is also a 3,600mAh battery. The device would run Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 845 SoC. Samsung has signed a deal with Qualcomm that makes it the first smartphone vendor to get the initial supply of Snapdragon 845.

DBS Designing imagines the S9 with a dual camera system on the back. It consists of two 18-megapixel sensors. The device also has a dual camera setup on the front, which includes two 13-megapixel snappers for selfies.

Will the actual Galaxy S9 feature a top ‘notch’ like iPhone X? Samsung has not confirmed it, but it’s entirely possible. The Korean company was recently granted the patent for a similar cutout at the top of a smartphone. The patent was filed in May 2016, long before rumors about the iPhone X began surfacing. The patent was granted by the Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS).

Galaxy S9 rumored specs

According to XDA Developers, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will have model numbers SM-G960 and SM-G965. They will retain the 5.7-inch and 6.2-inch screens from their predecessors. However, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus would offer only 4GB RAM and 64GB of base storage, sources told XDA Developers. Of course, Samsung will include a microSD card slot for further memory expansion. Just like Galaxy S8, the S9 will have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Previously, Korean site ETNews had reported that Samsung would use a Substrate-like PCB (SLP) mainboard in the Galaxy S9. The SLP mainboard will free up some internal space that could be utilized to make the device slimmer or add new features. The Galaxy S9 is expected to have a dedicated Bixby button on the side to activate Samsung’s AI assistant.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently revealed that the Galaxy S9’s dual camera system would be similar to the Galaxy Note 8. It means the setup would consist of a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens, both of which will offer optical image stabilization (OIS) to help you capture high-quality images even in low-light conditions. The telephoto lens allows for 2x optical zoom.

Galaxy S9 to be unveiled in January?

Samsung traditionally launches the new Galaxy S phones in February or March. The Galaxy S8, which launched in April, was an exception because its release was pushed back due to the Note 7 debacle. However, Korean media claims the Galaxy S9 could be unveiled as early as January next year. The development of the S9 display panel started in April 2016, about 2-3 months ahead of Samsung’s usual timeline.

According to The Investor, the S9 will be unveiled in January and go on sale in February.  Sources told the publication that Samsung Display would start shipping OLED panels for the Galaxy S9 in November. Display panels are the first components to be shipped. From there, it takes about 2-3 months to fully assemble the first batch of smartphones.

The Investor claims Samsung is bringing the flagship device earlier than usual to defend its market share against Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone X, which will hit the stores on November 3rd. The iPhone X is expected to see brisk sales during the holiday quarter.

This week marked one of the biggest of the year for Apple. The company held its September special event at Steve Jobs Theater, and one of the most exciting parts of the event was getting our first look at Steve Jobs Theater, as well as bits and pieces of Apple Park as a whole.

Apple kicked off its event with the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 3, which brings enhancements such as a processor that’s 70 percent faster and cellular connectivity. There’s also a host of new Apple Watch bands available. The company then unveiled its new Apple TV 4K and subsequently started rolling out 4K HDR content to iTunes.

Then came the big iPhone announcements – starting with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Both of these devices feature a refreshed design with glass backs and support for wireless charging. Both are powered by Apple’s A11 Bionic chip and feature camera improvements such as 4K 60 fps video support.

The “One more thing…” was the iPhone X, which features a completely new bezel-less design with an OLED display, as well as a new glass back and Face ID. The iPhone X, however, won’t be available until next month, with preorders starting on October 27th with a release the next week on November 3rd.

Apple: top 5 des smartphones qui coûtent plus cher que l’ IPhone X !

Tout le monde râle à propos du prix de l’IPhone X. Mais ce n’est pas le smartphone le plus cher vendu dans le monde. Voici le top 5 des poids-lourds !

Le 12 septembre était présenté l’IPhone X. Le prochain smartphone d’Apple. Celui-ci se veut très innovant, mais surtout très cher. Avec un prix US de 999 $, il est le téléphone de série « de base » le plus cher vendu dans le monde. Mais il est loin d’être le plus cher vendu dans le monde. En voici la preuve avec 5 téléphones qui sont beaucoup plus cher que l’IPhone X.


5 – Des IPhone en or, la classe quoi


Les riches Quatari et chinois sont des grands malades. Ils aiment sortir des IPhone complètement abusés. En or massif, avec des diamants, des bijoux, du bling bling pas forcément utile, mais qui te font une dette sur 35 générations si tu le perds. On peut compter l’IPhone 4S elite Gold à 6 000 000 $, Goldstriker iPhone 3GS Supreme à 3 200 000 $, Rien que ça !

L’IPhone X est lui aussi concerné par le relooking en or, et MCE en a fait un article ICI !


4 – Les smartphones uniques des grandes marques


Beaucoup de grandes marques ont sorti des téléphones uniques. Soit offert avec l’achat d’un autre produit, soit pour se la péter. On peut ainsi compter le Vertu Constellation T à 6 000$, le Lamborghini TL700 à 2 750 $ ou encore le GoldVish Pièce unique à 1 290 000$. De quoi baver.


3 – Solarin, le plus sécurisé au monde


La marque Israëlo-Suisse Sirin Labs s’était lancé dans le défi de créer le téléphone le plus sécurisé du monde. Comment ? En ajoutant un système de cryptage des données, le rendant intraçable et indéchiffrable par quelqu’un d’autre que son possesseur. Et ce, pour la modique somme de 12 100 euros. Malheureusement, l’entreprise a mis la clé sous la porte après seulement un an d’existence.


2 – Signature Cobra, plus magnifique que l’IPhone X !


Encore un téléphone signature. Pour 322 000 euros, celui-ci est tout simplement magnifique. Puisqu’il comporte plus de 439 rubis et deux émeraudes. Seulement 8 exemplaires ont été mis en vente dans le monde. Petit plus : vous pouvez le faire livrer chez vous par hélicoptère. Bon par contre niveau caractéristiques, il est vraiment naze, égalant à peine un Nokia 3310.

Nokia qui n’a aucune honte à avoir non plus. Car la marque possède également son modèle de luxe ! Le Nokia 8800 Arte with pink diamonds est le digne représentant face à l’IPhone X. Celui-ci possède un bouton central composé d’un seul et énorme diamant rose. Valeur totale : 134 000 $

1 -Le King Button iPhone : remplacer le bouton Home par un diamant


J’ai dis que remplacer le bouton central par un diamant rose c’était cool ? Pardon. Le remplacer par un ENORME diamant, ça c’est cool. Car cet IPhone 3G revisité est sorti en 2009, et il est resté pendant un temps le plus cher du monde. Mais observez plutôt cette vidéo magnifique… Son prix ? 2.1333.400 euros. Qui est chaud pour vendre un rein ?


l’IPhone Black Diamond, le plus cher du monde !


Et en supplément, on vous propose le smartphone le plus cher au monde actuellement. Il s’agit de l’IPhone 5 Black Diamond. Bien avant l’IPhone X, et pour un prix de 11,75 millions, il était possible d’être le king. Avec de nombreux diamants, coque en or massif, aucun autre appareil dans le monde n’a réussi à l’égaler.


Et vous ? C’est quoi le smartphone qui vous fait le plus baver ? L’IPhone X ? Un autre ? Dites-le nous dans les commentaires sur Facebook !
