Three ways to stop your Samsung Galaxy phone from randomly texting out your pics

PC World - Tue, 2018-07-03 10:33

If you have a new Galaxy S9, you’re probably using Samsung Messages for your texting needs.

In short, if you're locked into the Samsung ecosystem, you have every reason to use it.

According to reports, the app has been sending out photos to random contacts without the user’s permission, a massive privacy issue and a potential embarrassment for victims of the bug.

How to make sure you don’t delete referenced images in Photos for macOS

Mac World - Tue, 2018-07-03 08:00

Any media that’s referenced instead of copied will appear with a special confusing little icon that looks like an arrow pointing outside of a rectangle.

Mac World - Tue, 2018-07-03 06:00

Apple Maps is back in the news and you know what that means. (Yes, you do, Melba. Look inside yourself. You’ve always known.) It means it’s another excuse to complain about it being “not as good as” Google Maps.
