Huawei’s Annual Tradition of Getting Caught Trying to Pass Off Photos Shot With Professional Cameras as Having Been Shot With One of Their Phones

1 Comment

Matt Birchler:

Look, Huawai has responded every time saying that they technically never said that the photos were taken on their phones, but the context these photos were displayed heavily implied that was the case. Huawai phones can take some great photos, so I really can’t fathom why the company’s marketing does this year after year after year.

That’s easy: because they’re dishonest. Huawei’s company culture is one of lying and cheating. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Get caught lying, cheating, and stealing repeatedly for years on end, you’re obviously a bunch of crooks and grifters. When you hear “Huawei”, put your hand on your wallet.

Updates to the Android app and a new addition to the team

2 Comments and 3 Shares

Today we have a nice update, version 9.0, of the Android app that includes a rewrite of the story management backend as well as fixes for some critical display issues.

Here’s the full list of changes for version 9.0:

  • Fixes black background for stories while reading with the Light theme.
  • Total rewrite of the backend story management platform. This fixes the oldest issues known in story paging and scroll state. The story rivers should now act like dynamic views instead of static lists.
  • New feature: renaming feeds directly in the app.
  • Improved messaging and display behavior for the original text view.
  • Fixes for the dark theme’s menu color.
  • Many other bug fixes and performance tweaks.

I’d also like to introduce our newest developer, Caleb Allen.

Caleb will be working on the Android app. Our Android developer Daniel spent the last 5 years with us working many, many versions of the NewsBlur app. I want to thank Daniel for his years of service and we wish him well on his next adventure. And here’s hoping for many fruitful years with Caleb!

  • Waiting years to receive a car you ordered, to find that it's of poor workmanship and quality.
  • Promises of colonizing the solar system while you toil in drudgery day in, day out.
  • Living five adults to a two room apartment.
  • Being told you are constructing utopia while the system crumbles around you.
  • 'Totally not illegal taxi' taxis by private citizens moonlighting to make ends meet.
  • Everything slaved to the needs of the military-industrial complex.
  • Mandatory workplace political education.
  • Productivity largely falsified to satisfy appearance of sponsoring elites.
  • Deviation from mainstream narrative carries heavy social and political consequences.
  • Networked computers exist but they're really bad.
  • Henry Kissinger visits sometimes for some reason.
  • Elite power struggles result in massive collateral damage, sometimes purges.
  • Failures are bizarrely upheld as triumphs.
  • Otherwise extremely intelligent people just turning the crank because it's the only way to get ahead.
  • The plight of the working class is discussed mainly by people who do no work.
  • The United States as a whole is depicted as evil by default.
  • The currency most people are talking about is fake and worthless.
  • The economy is centrally planned, using opaque algorithms not fully understood by their users.

Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
