Proof That Instagram’s Hyperlapse App Makes Everyone’s Videos Better

<em>Editor’s note: This post was originally published by our partners at <a href=”″>PopSugar Tech</a>.</em>

Instagram has been an outlet for photographic and video storytelling since it was first introduced, and though we’ve seen new photo apps to make your Instas shine come and go over the past few years, none have been quite as hyped up as the latest and maybe greatest—Hyperlapse.

The user-friedly app from Instagram itself has simplified the process of producing sleek, smooth, and creative high-quality time-lapse videos. Check it out in action below.

All the little ants are marching.

Jimmy Fallon tried the app out on The Tonight Show.

You literally can’t lose with a cute dog video.

This is kind of like The Office meets The Maze Runner.

The app works wonders with shots of water.

Belatedly, TiVo Makes Its Play For Cord-Cutters

TiVo shot to fame, if not widespread acceptance, on the ability of its digital video recorders to impose order on the unruly smorgasbord of cable-TV programming. Which makes its latest product—its first set-top box that won’t work with cable—a bit of a head-scratcher, at least at first glance.

The new “limited edition” device, the TiVo Roamio OTA (for “over the air”) DVR, is the company’s attempt to appeal to cord-cutters, a growing group of TV viewers who eschew pricey cable packages for cheap or free streaming and broadcast options. It’s a striking move, and certainly an indication that TiVo understands that the TV landscape it grew up in is shifting—even if it doesn’t plan to sacrifice its valuable partnerships with cable and satellite providers just yet.

TiVo’s clear hope is that the Roamio OTA will make it more relevant amid a growing array of smart TVs and streaming boxes like Roku. Its pitch: You may not need us to search out and record your shows on cable, but we can do something similar for terrestrial HDTV broadcasts, while giving you the major streaming services in one place. 

For a price, of course.

Thinking Inside The Box

Roamio OTA is basically a stripped-down version of the company’s full-fledged premium Roamio boxes, except that you can’t hook it up to cable or satellite service. Instead, it’s limited to recording programs you can receive via an over-the-air antenna (thus the OTA) and to searching out things you’d like to watch on streaming services like Netflix.

The box will sell for $49—about par for your average streaming box. But it still requires TiVo’s standard $15 monthly fee (and that’s with a year-long commitment). It’s considerably cheaper than the company’s previous entry-level TiVo Roamio, which starts at $199. For that money, you get four tuners, 500GB of storage space, Wi-Fi, access via mobile devices, online streaming services and that popular TiVo remote and menu interface. 

The company’s primary pitch is to give cord-cutters a single place to search over-the-air TV shows and Internet videos from services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and YouTube, while also offering tightly controlled mobile access to recorded shows. Like its brethren, the Roamio OTA will let you shuttle recorded programs among other TiVo boxes in your household or to iPhones and iPads using the TiVo app.

That sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately, there’s a downside: that pesky subscription cost. People can already stream using other, cheaper device such as the Roku or the Chromecast, neither of which have recurring fees. Folks who bypass cable TV because of price may not take kindly to shelling out $15 every month to record shows that, in large part, are available from places like Hulu for $8 per month—or for free.

Testing—1, 2, 3

Instead of launching broadly, the latest TiVo is rolling out in test mode in select Best Buy locations on September 14. According to the company, there are some very reasonable and pragmatic reasons for that. With no cable card, the new box will rely on signals culled from antennas, which can be a tricky affair.

A TiVo representative told me via email that:

… the intricacies around antenna usage (everything from the density of trees on someone’s street to general topography) and the variety of signal strength in specific markets does present unique challenges—which is why we’re testing the product to get a better sense of how the customer will navigate signal issues, pair the product with the best antenna for their location, etc. If all goes smoothly, we’re open and ready to expanding on this test.

Of course, it’s hard to overlook the possibility that the company may also be testing its pricing, to see how much people are willing to spend. My guess is that this subscription cost is high, even for an established elder statesman of TV technology.

Over the past 16 years, the company has developed an ardent fanbase. But staying relevant amid the swelling ranks of set-top boxes, dongles and smart TVs may be a tough proposition. And charging high subscription fees may not be the best way to make inroads with today’s newfangled TV audiences.

Google Makes It Easier Than Ever To Unsubscribe From Unwanted Emails by @mattsouthern

Today, Google announced a new feature for Gmail that will make it easier than ever to unsubscribe from unwanted emails. Now, instead of scrolling to the bottom to find an unsubscribe button, Gmail will surface the unsubscribe button right next to the sender’s email address. Email is a handy way to get updates from your favorite brands, social networks, discussion boards and more. But sometimes you end up subscribed to lists that are no longer relevant to you, and combing through an entire message looking for a way to unsubscribe is no fun.  This feature won’t work for all email […]

Facebook Makes Messenger Mandatory

Facebook’s plan to monetize Messenger through payments just got one step closer to reality. Now users who want to keep messaging their Facebook friends will be forced to download the standalone Messenger app.

In the next few days, Facebook will fade out the messaging option from its main iPhone and Android apps. Now users worldwide will experience what European Facebook users underwent in April, where Facebook first tested a standalone app for messaging.

The social network hasn’t exactly been subtle about its plans to monetize the messaging function. In June, the company snagged PayPal President David Marcus to oversee Messenger, and clearly expected Marcus to use his payments expertise.

Messenger hit 200 million active users and people now send 12 billion messages a day, Facebook said in a statement. It’s unclear so far how this would be monetized, but in the 2014 second quarter conference, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that “over time there will be some overlap between [Messenger] and payments.”

The move is similar to FourSquare’s corralling of some of its app’s functions into an exclusively check-in app Swarm. However, as tech companies continue to split up their apps into increasingly specific categories, the question that remains is whether users will be content to have multiple Facebook and Foursquare apps on their phones.
