How To Block or Stop Videos From Autoplay While Browsing

How To Block or Stop Videos From Autoplay While Browsing

Last week Facebook announced plans to start autoplaying audio on videos as you scroll through your timeline. But interestingly there’s an app that can block all the Unwanted and unsolicited videos on Facebook and everywhere else.

Available for Chrome and Opera, ‘Disable HTML5 Autoplay’ is a nifty browser extension that lets you block automatic audio and video before it has even started playing. In addition to Chrome and Opera, creator Eloston says the plugin is slated to also land on Firefox in the near future.

What’s particularly interesting about the extension is that it works on Facebook as well as any other website that runs videos automatically. Anytime Disable HTML5 Autoplay prevents a video from playing, it indicates this in the upper right corner of your browser, where the rest of your extensions reside.

For those who want to enable audio and video autoplay on certain pages or websites, the extension comes with a handy ‘Mode Rules List’ that lets you do just that. While it isn’t as straightforward as using a standard ‘whitelist’ option, it does provide an equivalent functionality. Here are some instructions on how to use it.

While the extension has been around since last year, the recent introduction of autoplay video with sound in Facebook and a many other websites has made it ever more relevant.

Stop the autoplay madness and get the extension from the Chrome Web Store here.

iPhone 8 Rumored To Come With A Bigger Screen

iPhone 8 Rumored To Come With A Bigger Screen

While the iPhone 8 isn’t going to be announced until September, this week has been packed with rumors on the upcoming device. And it looks like the display is going to be the main star of the show.

Rumor has it that Apple is going to announce three new devices two new versions of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and a new high-end device that could cost more than $1,000. And it looks like the rumors around the display are for this mysterious “iPhone Pro” model.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (who is usually pretty reliable), the next iPhone could feature a 5.8-inch OLED display, but in a phone that is going to be roughly the size of the current iPhone 7. In order to do this, Apple is going to eliminate the bezel around the screen so that the surface of the device is just a giant screen. Here’s what it’ll look like according to this image from MacRumors:

As you can see, Apple is going to keep some space at the bottom for virtual buttons. Think about it as a sort of Touch Bar, but for the iPhone. You’ll see a virtual home button, but also buttons that are relevant to the app you’re currently using. Imagine having media playback buttons in the Music app, or a button to pick photos in the Messages app.

An AppleInsider spotted that Apple patented a way to embed a fingerprint sensor into a screen. I guess Apple doesn’t want to put the fingerprint sensor at the back of the device like most Android phones.

Also worth noting, it looks like the screen is going to be taller than before. This way, Apple can ship a narrow device, which would be easier to hold with one hand than other big phones.

The screen would no longer be 16:9. It means that if you’re watching a video on YouTube in full screen, there will be black rectangles on the left and right of the video. If you’re watching a 21:9 movie in full screen, there will only be tiny black bars of 49 pixels on each side.

Also, can you see that the main 5.15-inch display area is a bit narrower than the 5.8-inch physical OLED? I’m not sure what it means exactly. Maybe the OLED display could be curved on each side like on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and you don’t want to display text on a curved display.

This display is going to pack a ton of pixels as well. With a pixel density of 528 PPI, it’s a much higher quality display than the current iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus display (respectively 326 ppi and 401 ppi).

Like on the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple could provide different levels of “zoom”, with 3x renderng as the default setting. Remember that the iPhone 7 Plus renders everything at 2208 by 1242 pixels then scale it down to 1920 by 1080. If the main display area has a width of 1242 pixels, it would make a lot of sense.

Essentially, this rumored iPhone would display as much content as the iPhone 7 Plus display, but with a few extra lines of text as the display is taller. Everything would appear a bit smaller though, so Apple could also let you choose 2x rendering by scaling it down to the phone’s display in real time.

George 'The Animal' Steele, WWE Hall of Famer, dies at 79

George 'The Animal' Steele, WWE Hall of Famer, dies at 79

George "The Animal" Steele, a pro wrestling icon and WWE Hall of Famer, has died at 79. WWE confirmed the news Friday.

Steele turned pro in 1967 and was best known for his run as a comical babyface attraction in the final years before his 1988 retirement. With his hairy upper body, bald head and green tongue, Steele became one of the most recognizable characters for the WWE then known as WWF -- during its national expansion in the mid-1980s, thanks to his penchant for biting open and chewing on the turnbuckle pads.

Steele spent his final years in Cocoa Beach, Florida. He revealed in his 2013 autobiography "Animal" that he suffered near-fatal bouts with Crohn's disease -- which affects the digestive tract
throughout his retirement and had his colon removed in 2002. He began to share publicly about his declining health on his social media accounts, beginning last May.
