Straight to video: Facebook to add 'view counts' to autoplay newsfeed vids


Since the videos start playing automagically of course they are going to count as being watched. Common sense. Give us the statistics for the number of videos watched all the way through without the user scrolling up or down the page away from the video and I'll bet it's far far lower.

Now Mr Z, give us a settings to STOP the videos from autoplaying. I for one don't want it.

To make sure he didn't come out???? Try "to arrest the barsteward when he did come out for breaching his bail conditions and extraditing him to another European country where he has an arrest warrant out in his name for questioning in relation to accusations of raping two women"

Nokia emits Windows Phone 8.1 'Cyan' upgrade for Lumia gear


Re: More messing about

If you're going to attempt sarcasm veti then at least ensure you have the details correct before posting.

Cortana is currently available to anyone who cares to change the phones language and region setting to USA. It will be rolled out to other countries soon with China and UK being next in line to get Cortana.

Snowden shoots back: 'So you DO have my emails, after all'



Given the data he released I presume he was sensible enough to make copies of any emails he sent & received during his time at the NSA relating to the data released?
