Asus Zenfone 3 Go leaks with specs and renders

Asus' naming convention is getting more and more confusing with each passing day. Navigating already official models is a challenge in itself, but when it comes to analyzing leaks, it really takes some dedicated investigative work to get the facts straight. This time around, however, we have an almost suspiciously straight-forward scoop.

The Zenfone 3 Go appears to be a revival of the budget "Go" line. Last we saw a Go unit up on offer was in 2015. The original Asus Zenfone Go ZC500TG bore the typical Zenfone 2 design language, including the bulky arching back and a horizontally centered main camera.

Apple's WWDC 2017 conference to take place June 5-9

Apple has announced that its Worldwide Developer Conference will be taking place this year between June 5-9. WWDC will be returning to San Jose this year after a long period, at the McEnery Convention Center, away from the usual Moscone West in San Francisco, which has been the hub of Apple events for the past several years. The San Jose venue is only minutes away from the new Apple headquarters in Cupertino.

As usual the main event will be the keynote where we can expect to see the latest developments in iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS, with a lesser chance of seeing some new hardware. Apart from that, the five day event will also host developers from around the world where they will be able to engage with over 1000 Apple engineers through their sessions and personal interactions. In addition to all of this, Apple is also working with local businesses in San Jose to celebrate the return of WWDC with some special experiences around the city throughout the week.

Developers will be able to apply for the tickets in spring. The keynote will also be live streamed online.

Facebook has just announced a bunch of new features that will improve viewing video on its platform’s mobile app. Among the features announced were: auto-play videos will also play sound, portrait video viewing will improve, watch videos as you keep scrolling, and a new Facebook Video App for TV platforms.

Auto-play videos in the Facebook app will now play with sound on. Facebook has been slowly testing this feature which has seen positive reaction so far. Video sound will fade in as you reach the video, and then fade out as you scroll past the video. Facebook also promises the feature will not work when the device is in silent/vibrate mode. Don’t worry, there will also be an option to disable the sound, and the option to disable auto-play videos isn’t going anywhere.
