Spotify now lets you share music directly to Snapchat

Spotify is adding the ability to share whatever it is you’re listening to with a snap on Snapchat — long after other platforms like Instagram already got this same type of integration. So long as Snapchat is installed on the same device you’re using Spotify on, you’ll now see it appear in Spotify’s share menu. When chosen, Snapchat will automatically create a snap that includes song info and album art for the currently playing track. This can then be sent to your individual Snapchat friends or to your story. You can share individual songs, albums, playlists, or podcasts. If you...

Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 to have a 90Hz display and 40W charging support

We came across a big Mi Mix 4 leak last week with plenty of details surrounding the phone - from camera specs to memory configurations and software features. However, the report left out a few interesting details. A post on Weibo came out today reporting that the Mi Mix 4 will get a 90Hz refresh rate display and 40W fast charging. And to retain the full-screen design from the previous Mi Mix generations, the newest addition to the family will resort to the pop-up camera mechanism for its front shooter. However, we wouldn't suggest you fully trust this information because...

The Latest: General says US is at a new 'Sputnik moment'

The Latest on the Peterson Air Force Base ceremony to mark the establishment of the U.S. Space Command (all times local): 11:10 a.m. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says the U.S. has reached a new "Sputnik moment" in which the nation's competitive advantage in space has eroded.

Dunford said Monday that call to action resulted in...

India claims to have spotted the country’s Vikram lunar lander on the surface of the Moon days after the spacecraft presumably crashed during a landing attempt. India still has not made contact with the lander, which went silent moments before its scheduled touchdown, but Indian officials are hopeful that the lander might still function. “We are trying to establish contact,” Kailasavadivoo Sivan, the chairperson of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) which oversees the lander, told Asian News International (ANI). “It will be communicated soon.” The Vikram lander is a key part of India’s Chandrayaan-2 mission, which is aimed at...

HTC's revenue goes up 67% in August

HTC financial situation has been pretty grim for the last few years but lately there have been some small signs of bouncing back. For August, for example, the Taiwanese tech company recorded 66.8% growth in revenue compared to July.

Market analysts say that with the launch of VR-related products earlier this year like the Vive Pro Eye, Vive Focus, Vive Focus Plus and Vive Cosmos, the company will see its sales...
