Tell Siri you're getting pulled over and this iPhone shortcut will record your interaction with the police
Amid the widespread protests and anger over police brutality, an iPhone shortcut that allows users to automatically record their interactions with the police is gaining popularity.
By saying, "Hey Siri, I'm getting pulled over," the shortcut -- which a user must first install themselves -- will pause any music that you're playing, turn down the brightness of your phone, turn on the "Do Not Disturb" mode to block any incoming calls, open up your front-facing camera and start a video recording.
It also sends a message to a predesignated contact, letting them know that you're being pulled over and where your current location is. Once you stop the recording, it sends a copy of the video to a predesignated contact and gives you the option to send it to your iCloud or Dropbox.

Dating apps are introducing video chats so you can date during social distancing
Late last year, The League introduced video chatting to its users. The dating app, which prides itself on being exclusive, is "known for its selective admissions-based model and high achieving community of users," according to its press kit. The video chat feature, tested out by my Mashable colleague Brenda Stolyar, seemed odd at the time — but now it seems like The League may have predicted how singles would connect during the coronavirus pandemic.
Seeing as people all around the world are being encouraged or forced to stay inside, dating has shifted into unprecedented territory. We should not stop dating under quarantine (if we don't want to), according to Match's chief dating expert Rachel DeAlto, but instead adapt.
Now that iTunes is going away, here's what will happen to your music and movies
Apple announced on Monday that it would phase out iTunes on its upcoming operating system in favor of three new apps: Music, TV and Podcasts.
Though iTunes as we know it will be no more, you don't have to worry about losing those iTunes playlists you made back in the summer of 2006. The platform's features will still exist on macOS Catalina -- they'll just be spread out across the different apps, similar to how they are on iOS.
Here's what Apple says that will look like.
You'll still have access to all your media

We are at the beginning of a global mental health revolution
Access to mental health services has never been more critical -- no matter where you live. Mental health disorders are increasing globally, and depression is the leading cause of disability in the world. One in four of us will experience a mental illness at some point in our lives, according to the World Health Organization.
And many more are indirectly affected by disorders experienced by someone we love.
In the United States, mental disorders among children and adolescents have reached a crisis level, with the country experiencing its highest suicide rate in 50 years.
My interest in mental health started more than 50 years ago in front of a cotton mill in Atlanta. It was 1966, when my husband, Jimmy Carter, was running for governor. I stood outside the entrance of the factory early in the morning, waiting to give people brochures as they left the night shift. An older woman came out, looking weary from work. When I asked if she would be able to get some sleep, she told me she hoped so, but that she had a daughter who had a mental illness and needed care while the woman's husband was at his job.

HERE’S WHERE YOU CAN FLIRT WITH A SEXTING AI CALLED SLUTBOT
To teach people how to responsibly and respectfully flirt and sext, an iOS app called Juicebox built an AI chatbot — aptly named Slutbot.
Slutbot can break the ice with users before jumping into mechanically-stilted dirty talk speckled with questions and comments about comfort zones and consent, according to The New York Times. The idea of getting intimate with a chatbot might seem odd, but the idea is that Slutbot will help people learn to navigate those conversations without the risk of alienating or insulting another person.
What Is The Porn Block & How Will It Affect You? There Are Some Big Changes Coming
In a bid to stop under-18s accessing pornographic websites, the government has announced that from July 15 age-checks will be introduced to commercial porn websites in the UK. The move has been dubbed the "porn block" and will require all sex websites that make money and run as businesses to introduce “robust” age verification procedures or risk facing a fine of up to £250,000 and being blocked by internet service providers. However, critics of the policy have said that teens will simply access porn in other ways, the loopholes are too large, and the changes may make little differences to big pornography platforms while putting smaller sex bloggers out of business.
While the porn block has come as a bit of a surprise for some it has actually been in the works for a long time, as the BBC reports. During the 2015 election the Conservative party pledged to introduce age-verification for online pornography if it won the election. It was also included in the Digital Economy Act 2017 and while it was supposed to be implemented in 2018 it has faced numerous delays.
The company that owns YouPorn and PornHub has developed the technology AgeID that will be used by those companies to verify the ages of its users. James Clark, Director of Communications at AgeID, told i-News, “first, a user can register an AgeID account using an email address and password, both of which are protected..." He continued:
“The user verifies their email address and then chooses an age verification option from our list of 3rd party providers, using options such as Mobile SMS, Credit Card, Passport, or Driving Licence.”

This Instagram Shames Men for Being Absolute Monsters on Dating Apps
It’s a tale as old as the internet: when Alexandra Tweten would log into her online dating accounts, she’d occasionally get messages from random guys that made her uneasy. Sometimes it’d be an unsolicited dick pic. Other times the messages themselves were lewd or creepy right off the bat. “I just wouldn’t respond, or I’d think, ‘No, thanks. I'm not interested,’” Tweten tells VICE over the phone. “And then they got hostile.”
Grindr is being used by gay men to sell and buy drugs, says new report
NBC OUT released a new report that details how gay men are using Grindr to sell and buy drugs. The article features the accounts of a dozen men who recount their experiences with drugs on the popular dating app.
Here are a few of them:
“The issue with drugs has been a gay community plague since the ‘80s, but in the modern era, you don’t need a guy who knows a guy. All you need to do is open up your app and look for that capital ‘T.’”-Derrick Anderson, a Grindr user from Chicago
“Today with Grindr, men can have sex and drugs delivered to their door instantly. I think it’s gotten worse in the past couple of years. The apps are making it easier for people to find him.” – Phil McCabe, social worker and president of the National Association of LGBT Addiction Professionals
“Drugs were always sprinkled throughout the app, but now it’s nothing like before. Of course drug sales are happening on other dating apps, but at a fraction.” – George, a Grindr user in New York
“It gives me more clientele than I would normally get on the street.” – Mike, a teaching assistant in New York City who also sells drugs
The article also profiles how drugs users and sellers use various code words and emojis in headlines and profile descriptions to describe what drugs they are looking for or selling. For instance, a diamond is used to represent meth, while a snowman is used to represent cocaine.
CES: ObEN Could Be the Clone You Always Wanted
A meeting with ObEN at CES showcased their artificial intelligence (AI) that allows users to create intelligent 3D avatars that look, sound, and behave like them. The Personal AI (PAI) technology enables users to create, use, and manage their own PAI on the secure, decentralized blockchain platform. These avatars can be headshots, what you might expect from a video call on a smartphone, or full-body augmented reality (AR) figures.
Amazon Will Add Takeout Order Option at Some Restaurants Next Month
The already crowded field of restaurant ordering apps is about to see a new major competitor. Amazon has announced that it will begin accepting takeout orders through its existing app at select restaurants in select areas starting next month. The new service will offer the added convenience of already being integrated with Amazon Pay, but has one major shortcoming: Yes, you read that correctly earlier… For now, Amazon’s ordering platform will only work for orders you’re willing to go pick up yourself.

‘No *Insert Race Here*, Just a Preference’: Examining the Racial Politics of Gay App Design
As an unexpected and unintended consequence of the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, I, as an interaction design (IxD) researcher and instructor, have been intrigued by the resurgence of discussions around race and racism within online dating spaces. While I agree these environments should be devoid of racist behaviors and language, it’s also well understood they are spaces driven by user preferences — discrimination — of some sort, whether age, weight, race, body hair or other factors. But it’s the notion of race-based discrimination that is most often problematic.
On and offline, race-based discrimination of sexual partners is real, particularly in the primary use of these apps, which most often is facilitating a non-committal sexual hookup. Race-based preferences — regardless of how they individually evolved — exist.
Twitter enables account sharing in its mobile app, powered by TweetDeck Teams
TweetDeck Teams — a feature that lets users share access to Twitter accounts without having to share a password — will now work in the Twitter app for iOS and Android. This change will make it easier for those who run social media accounts for businesses and brands to post updates, check replies, send direct messages and more, without having to run a separate app.
If anything, however, the move could hint that Twitter is thinking of transitioning TweetDeck’s account management features to its main app. After all, many of TweetDeck’s more advanced features, like muting, search and list management, already exist on Twitter itself. It only makes sense that shared accounts would make their way over, too.
Twitter’s Night Mode feature comes to desktop
Twitter.com launched its Night Mode feature on desktop today, although the feature has yet to roll out to all accounts. The feature has already been available on iOS and Android since last year.
To enable Night Mode on desktop, click on your profile photo, then select Night Mode, which is the last option and has a moon icon. Activating Night Mode turns Twitter’s usual white screens and cheerful light blue into a beautiful Tumblr-like navy blue and fills up the moon icon with blue. To disable Night Mode, just click again to deselect.
