Amazon AI Fails At Phone Case Creation
Amazon sellers have been dabbling with AI for a while, but a bot called My Handy Design has created 31,00 phone cases with truly bizarre images. The bot was originally created to put frequently searched images onto phone cases and post them for sale, but it began listing some strange images on the cases. The list of strange images includes an elderly woman with an inhaler, a gold butt plug with crystal, a worried teenage girl with pregnancy test, and many more. The products have been since flagged as ‘adult’ but are still up for sale in case you want an iPhone case that will really strike up a conversation… BoredPanda

Youtube Thumbnails Will Now Look Like GIFs!
Youtube has been slowly introducing ‘preview-GIF’ thumbnails for its videos to a select number of users since the end of June. The clip is created from a section at the beginning of the video by Youtube’s Artificial Intelligence software, with no input from the video’s creators. This isn’t available for all videos, as videos are being chosen based on subject matter, length, or a few other factors. Currently, if a video that was uploaded doesn’t have a 'preview’ thumbnail within two days, it probably won’t get one. The Verge

Dr Who's 13th Time Lord Will Be Jodie Whittaker
Over the weekend, it was announced that Jodie Whittaker would be Dr Who’s thirteenth Time Lord, and this marks the first time that the infamous time traveller will be played by a woman. The announcement was revealed at the end of Wimbledon’s Men’s Singles finals through a short video by the BBC. Formerly of Broadchurch and Black Mirror, Whittaker brings an extensive resume with her to the role, which will be taken over from Peter Capaldi after his Christmas special finale. Fans have taken to the internet to celebrate this announcement that has been a long time coming. BBC
