The Great Software Disaster
Yesterday’s Apple presentation revealed several new products, including the iPhone X. Replacing the home button with facial recognition software to unlock the phone, many people were excited to see the new feature in action. Unfortunately for Apple, the software failed to recognize demonstrator Craig Federighi’s face during the presentation. Subsequently (and because pre-order isn’t beginning until October), Apple stocks fell 0.4%.
We guess skipping iPhone 9 was one step too far.

Police Get Snappy
If you’re as obsessed with Brooklyn Nine Nine as we are, you might love this Snapchat account. The police department in Knoxville has created a Snapchat account to connect better with youth. “Reaching people where they are is the first step to improve communication”, said Sgt. Samuel Henard. 
We love the idea of Knoxville PD lipdubs and Snapchat filtered selfies.

Share Music With Friends
The latest Apple Music update seems to be adding a little more social to the platform. You can now follow friends and see what they’re listening to, or go private and hide your secret musical obsessions to yourself. Keep your eyes peeled for the iOs 11 update for full capabilities.

Florida Connects After Irma
As Floridians and other evacuated states have returned to their homes over the last few days following the wake of Hurricane Irma, images of the storm have been replaced with the devastation of homes and businesses. Social media was key to connecting families to help during the storm, as most islands in the Keys and much of the surrounding area have been cut off from electricity for many days, and are using evacuee Facebook pages to share any news or updates gathered from the area.
So many families have been able to check in and connect again through the power of social media.

A Pity Party In The Comments Section
Group video chat app Bonfire has long been anticipated as the competitor to House Party. Both apps allow for you to hang out and chat with your friends face-to-face, but Bonfire is built by Facebook. Sounds great, right? The only problem is it’s only available in the Danish app store. And people are starting to feel pretty bad for the developers who made the original video chat app, House Party.
As if parties weren't already awkward enough, now we have a second party on our phones.
