The Great Google Hangouts Shutdown begins October 2019

Ars Technica - 45 min 16 sec ago


Google previously announced that its most popular messaging app, Google Hangouts, would be shutting down. In a post today on the GSuite Updates blog, Google detailed what the Hangouts shutdown will look like, and the company shared some of its plan to transition Hangouts users to "Hangouts Chat," a separate enterprise Slack clone.

First, we need to get some vocabulary down to navigate Google's extremely confusing branding. There are two totally separate products we're talking about here: "Hangouts" and "Hangouts Chat." These two products have nothing in common besides their similar names.

Google kills product

View more stories Hangouts—which Google has recently retconned to "Hangouts Classic"—is Google's most-popular messaging app of all time. The full-featured, consumer-grade, instant-messaging app has over a billion installs on Android, and it has enjoyed prominent placement in the desktop version of Gmail. Since it was an in-place upgrade of Google Talk, it has a user base dating back 13 years.

HBO mines Asian mythology for scary monsters in anthology series Folklore

Ars Technica - 1 hour 10 min ago

HBO Asia's new horror anthology series, Folklore, features six standalone episodes, each set in a different Asian country.

Back in the 1990s, HBO notably produced the cult-classic horror anthology series Tales from the Crypt. For its new horror anthology, Folklore, the scary monsters are drawn from the mythologies of various Asian cultures. Instead of a vampire, you get a pontianak, and in place of a trickster genie who grants wishes, there is a blood-drinking toyol from Malaysia.

Created by Singaporean director Eric Khoo, the series features six standalone episodes, each with a different director and cast, set in a different country: Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and Korea. (Khoo directed the Singapore-set episode, "Nobody.") The episodes have been making the rounds at film festivals, including the 2018 Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, and the 2018 Toronto Film Festival. And now they're coming to the small screen.

In "A Mother's Love," a single mother moves into a mansion with her young son and finds several unkempt children in the attic. When she helps return them to their families, she incurs the wrath of Wewe Gombel, a child-snatching vengeful spirit—although, to be fair, in the original folktale she only takes children who have been abused. (The story is reminiscent of how the Icelandic ogre Gryla was portrayed as a protector of children recently in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina solstice special.)

On Tuesday, the Electronic Frontier Foundation issued yet another formal response to an overzealous legal demand, this time over the use of the domain name ""

This story begins with President Donald Trump's most public attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who despite being the president's cybersecurity adviser, doesn't seem to understand how Twitter or URLs work.

In December 2018, Giuliani amazingly blamed Twitter itself for turning a phrase he wrote in a tweet ("") into a valid URL. An enterprising Twitter user noticed, bought the domain, and turned it into an anti-Trump site.
