“Stalin would have liked it,” Elon Musk spoke about the new Google Photos “Magic Eraser” feature
The head of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, commented on Google’s statement about the appearance of a new function “Magic Eraser” (Magic Eraser) in the Google Photos service.
Recall that the other day Google confirmed that now users of Google Photos on Android and iOS now have a feature available with which users can remove people from photos accidentally caught in the frame.
The example posted by Google shows how several people on the beach were removed from the photo, leaving only one girl in the frame.
Elon Musk posted two photos in response. The first photo, taken in April 1937, shows Joseph Stalin and Nikolai Yezhov. Yezhov is not on the second (edited) photo. “Stalin would have loved this feature,” Musk commented.
Additional details about the new features of Google Photos have also emerged. It can automatically detect extraneous details or people in a photo, which can then be easily removed. Users can also circle or manually specify the people or details they want to erase.
Magic Eraser has a “Camouflage” feature that can change the color of objects in photos so that they blend naturally with the rest of the photo.
In addition, the HDR effect in photos helps to balance the dark foreground and bright background (or vice versa). It also allows you to increase the brightness and contrast of your video.
Pebble founder wants to release a compact Android smartphone with a good camera and quality materials
It is quite possible that a compact smartphone from the founder of Pebble will appear on the market in the foreseeable future.
Eric Migicovsky, who founded the acclaimed Pebble, is literally now gathering a new team to release a compact smartphone with Andorid. In fact, at the moment there is no company that will eventually be created for these purposes. Now the Small Android Phone team is only discussing options, but even now the participants are trying to decide on the characteristics.
The team now includes several former Pebble employees, including the founder, GoPro designer, MongoBD manager, and other enthusiasts. Interestingly, it all started, in fact, simply with the cry of Migikowski on the Web for someone to make a good compact smartphone. But, as we know, even the iPhone mini sold very mediocrely.
However, perhaps they were too small. The Small Android Phone team has not yet finalized the dimensions, but has repeatedly mentioned, firstly, that the screen should be less than 6.1 inches diagonally, and secondly, the participants often mentioned ZenFone 9 with a 5-screen diagonal as a reference point. 9 inches.
The team’s designer even already has a number of sketches, although it’s hard to say what the smartphone will be like in the end. But the team definitely focuses on good photo opportunities as well. In addition, apparently, the emphasis will be placed on the materials of the case, along with the tactile sensations of users.
In terms of performance, the smartphone will definitely be very powerful, but not necessarily one of the best. The team is currently looking at two platforms: the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and a mid-range Qualcomm chip that has yet to be released. Although, perhaps, this meant the new SoC Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 2, which was just announced the other day, but has not yet hit the market. By the way, such a selection of platforms hints that the smartphone will not be released sometime in a few years, but relatively soon. Perhaps in a year and a half.
There is a guideline for the price: about $ 850.

Employees of Apple and Twitter are driven to the offices. You can get fired for working from home
Zoe Schiffer, who was recently managing editor of Twitter and now holds the same position at Platformer, said that Apple strictly monitors how employees visit offices.
Apple tracks employee attendance (using electronic badge records) and alerts employees if they don’t show up to the office at least 3 times a week.
Some at Apple, according to Schiffer, say that non-compliance could lead to dismissal, but she added that this does not seem like company policy.
In addition, she revealed that her former boss, Elon Musk, sent an email to Twitter employees at 2:30 a.m. stating that “office visits are no longer optional.” The billionaire noticed that the San Francisco office was half empty when he last visited.
