Snibble gives users free access to new content – without the annoyance of multiple ads

Snibble gives users free access to new content – without the annoyance of multiple ads

Snibble offers Canadians a new way to access the latest content on all their favourite topics.

The platform shows users 20-second previews of videos — everything from world headlines and sports news to movie trailers and the world of entertainment — in vertical mode.

Snibble is all about having “snackable TV clips,” founder and chief product officer Andrew Shortt told MobileSyrup.

Users desiring to view the clip in its entirety don’t have to track down the original source of the video; all they have to do is click on the clip to watch it in full.

The mobile-only app shows users the newest content in each subject category, saving them from fishing through older content to find new information. Users also never have to type to find clips, Shortt explained, as videos are categorized under different subjects that can be customized based on the user’s preference.

Combined with the ability to share these clips on social media, the app allows users to discover, curate, and watch short-form video content with friends, or as Shortt calls them, the “most powerful recommendation engine in the world.”

Sharing videos this way is a concept Shortt takes very seriously, as the method isn’t based on an “evil” algorithm but content people genuinely are interested in.

All of the clips come from professional content producers. Snibble doesn’t contain user-generated content that appears on platforms like YouTube or TikTok. “In every video category, it’s curated to be the absolute best of the best,” Shortt said.

To share content, users can select “Reco” on the clip they want their friends to see. The button is available under the clip’s title. The video is added to the tab titled “Collab.” Users can invite their friends to sign up for Snibble and access their list of recommended videos. Users can differentiate what each of their friends has posted by clicking on their avatar.

“You’ll have a curated feed of what you and your friends think are the best videos,” Shortt said.

At this time, invites can only be sent through email, SMS, Whatsapp, or Telegram.

Snibble further differentiates itself from other vertical short-form video platforms through its use of ads.

Any ad included in a preview is roughly six seconds long, appears at the beginning of a clip and isn’t skippable. The platform doesn’t feature multiple ads at the beginning of clips, and ads aren’t included between videos. Snibble does feature the occasional ten-second ad, which can be skipped about halfway through.

The platform was specifically designed this way, Shortt said, to create a “very premium experience.” Users can rest assured this ad format won’t change any time soon.

“As long as I’m alive and in charge of this, we will never have a mid-roll ad because digital content wasn’t designed for commercial breaks like TV was,” Shortt said.

The founder specifically takes issue with platforms that make users watch long periods of ads for videos that are only a couple of minutes long. “It’s not a fair trade-off for their time.”

Snibble is free to use and is advertiser-supported.

Currently, 95 percent of the platform’s audience is in the U.S., but Shortt’s ambitions for Snibble are global. The app is available in several European countries with “sizeable English-speaking populations,” including the UK and Germany.

Shortt said the company is also working on partnerships in India. The company held a four-month-long test in the country, and the results “encouraged us greatly.” Users are flocking to the platform without any advertising, Shortt said. During the week of November 27th, Snibble saw 2,000 new users in India.

The unexpected growth is part of a long-standing trend. When the company first did a market test, Snibble got 600,000 downloads in three months. These figures were unexpected, and the platform quickly crashed. The company rebuilt the app, which was first released two years ago. It’s now on the “more traditional and scalable AWS backend,” Shortt said.

The company is working on releasing a list of new features on Snibble, including one that involves artificial intelligence (AI) recommending content for users to watch.

Tesla begins Cybertruck deliveries, starts at roughly $83,000 CAD

Tesla begins Cybertruck deliveries, starts at roughly $83,000 CAD

Tesla has finally begun delivering its long-awaited Cybertruck to customers.

At a launch event at its Austin, Texas headquarters, the electric vehicle company handed out the truck to about a dozen customers, four years after it was first unveiled.

As part of the event, Tesla also detailed the Cybertruck’s final specs and pricing, which aren’t quite what was expected. First, the base rear-wheel drive version of the vehicle starts at $60,990 USD (about $83,000 CAD), well above the original $39,900 (roughly $54,100) price tag mentioned in 2019. On top of that, this lower-cost model, which can hit 250 miles (402 km) on a single charge, won’t be available until 2025.

If you want a Cybertruck in 2024, you can opt for the dual-motor and tri-motor ‘Cyberbeast’ models. The former is priced at $79,990 USD (about $108,500 CAD), sports 340 miles (547 km) of range and can go from 0 to 60mph (about 96 kmh) in 4.1 seconds. The latter, meanwhile, costs $99,990 USD (about $135,500 CAD), boats 320 miles (515km) of range and can reach 60mph in 2.6 seconds. These ranges come well below the 500 miles (804 km) that Musk had promised in 2019.

In the past few weeks, the rather unique-looking, ballistics-resistant stainless steel vehicle had been spotted in Quebec. Other Canadians interested in pre-ordering the Cybertruck can do so by making a $150 CAD deposit on Tesla’s website.

Given the slow rollout of the Cybertruck, Tesla isn’t anticipating the vehicle to become a major cash flow contributor for at least 12 to 18 months. On top of that, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is contending with other financial obstacles.

Earlier this week, the business magnate said “go f**k yourself” to advertisers who have pulled out from his X (Twitter) platform. Many advertisers, like Disney and Apple, have left the platform following antisemitic comments made by Musk.

Prepare to redownload Baldur’s Gate 3 to free up 130GB for its biggest patch ever

Prepare to redownload Baldur’s Gate 3 to free up 130GB for its biggest patch ever

Something to look forward to: Baldur’s Gate 3 is a big game that has received big patches. The latest, designed to provide a sense of closure, introduces more features than ever, including an epilogue. However, those without sufficient remaining storage space may need to redownload the entire 150GB game.

Patch 5 for Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available. Larian Studios warns that while the download for the update is 30GB, installation requires 130GB of free space. Users short on storage should uninstall and redownload the game, but the enormous list of improvements justifies the re-installation.

Players who have completed the main story can now access a new epilogue chapter to view the consequences of every choice they made throughout the adventure and mark a final farewell to their party. Load a save before the final battle to reach the new ending sequence.

Those who start a new game can choose between two modes with additional difficulty adjustments. Honor Mode is a new hardcore difficulty setting that readjusts the combat, gives bosses new abilities, and introduces permadeath. Meanwhile, Custom Mode allows players to tweak various settings regarding dice rolls and other gameplay aspects to create a more authentic D&D experience.

The new patch should also significantly improve performance, especially on systems short on RAM and VRAM. Larian attributes the efficiency gains to optimizations made for the upcoming Xbox port, which the company delayed to take extra time adjusting the split-screen mode for the Xbox Series S. The physical Xbox Series X disc will contain Patch 5.

Other additions to Baldur’s Gate 3 include dynamic resolution on PlayStation 5, Korean language support, and hundreds of other improvements and fixes. An inventory interface update allows players access to non-active party members’ inventories.

Patch 5 isn’t the first gigantic update Baldur’s Gate 3 has received. The patch that brought the game out of Early Access required everyone to redownload the then-122GB title. The first post-launch update fixed so many bugs that Larian couldn’t list them all within the Steam update page’s character limit.

Console users who don’t own Baldur’s Gate 3 can purchase the game with all updates on physical discs when the deluxe edition ships in the first quarter of 2024. The PS5 version will come on two discs, while the Xbox Series X package contains three.

The PC box will also include a disc, but it will only be a DVD with a custom installer and a Steam key, necessitating a digital download since most PC owners no longer use optical drives. Larian considered including the entire game on a USB drive, but failure rates were unacceptably high.

Google to remove inactive Gmail accounts

Google to remove inactive Gmail accounts

The last chance for users to preserve their inactive Gmail accounts is upon us — as Google prepares for an account removal process. Initially announced in May, Google plans to eliminate inactive accounts that have been dormant for more than two years, beginning tomorrow, December 1, 2023. The primary goal of this action is to improve security since unoccupied accounts are at a higher risk of hacker attacks. To avoid the deletion of their accounts, users are encouraged to log in before the deadline and follow the necessary steps for account security maintenance. Google has made efforts to notify inactive users about the upcoming removal process, ensuring they have ample time to take action if they wish to preserve their Gmail accounts.

This new approach differs from previous policies focused on deleting stored content, as it will now remove the accounts entirely. To prevent an unused account from being lost, users merely need to log in and send an email, thereby reactivating the account. This proactive measure aims to declutter the platform by eliminating dormant accounts, thus improving overall efficiency and user experience. Additionally, this policy encourages users to maintain an active presence on the platform and helps them avoid missing out on crucial updates or messages.

Gmail accounts that have uploaded a video to YouTube will not be affected

The removal process will transpire in stages, with completely abandoned accounts as the initial targets. Accounts that have uploaded videos to YouTube, however, will not be affected by this policy for now. As the process progresses, Google will closely monitor the impact on user engagement and accessibility to ensure smooth implementation. Subsequently, the company plans to evaluate the effectiveness of this approach and may consider expanding the scope to include accounts with minimal engagement.

It’s crucial to emphasize that this policy applies solely to personal Gmail accounts. This account removal campaign will not impact organizational accounts linked to institutions and businesses. This means that users with Gmail accounts connected to educational centers, corporations, and similar entities will not have to worry about their accounts being deleted. Google has ensured that it will continue to provide uninterrupted services and support to such organizations, allowing their affiliated members to retain their email accounts and enjoy the platform’s full range of features.

Reminder for inactive users

As the deadline for removing inactive Gmail accounts approaches, users who have not accessed their accounts in over two years should log in and send an email to reactivate them. This simple step helps retain the account and ensures users remain up-to-date with vital information and messages related to their Google services. By logging in and engaging with the platform, users demonstrate that they value their Gmail accounts, prompting the company to continue supporting and delivering top-notch services to its vast user base.

Google claims that this new policy will positively impact data security because inactive accounts are often vulnerable to hacking attempts and malicious activities.

I’m dumping Google Maps for Apple Maps – here’s why

I’m dumping Google Maps for Apple Maps – here’s why

For nearly two decades, I’ve sworn by Google Maps. I gave Waze a shot before it was acquired by Google, but it wasn’t my cup of tea. Years later, Apple’s Maps app made such a revolting first impression that I flung it into the recesses of a folder, never to be seen again. But after moving to the suburbs and buying a car, I gave Apple Maps a second chance. I was shocked by how much it had improved, but I wasn’t ready to abandon Google Maps just yet. Then Google rolled out its most controversial Maps update in ages, and I did the unthinkable.

I made Apple Maps the primary navigation app on my phone.

Even if you haven’t experienced the Google Maps update firsthand, you’ve probably read about it. Google says the update makes its map “reflect the real world even more accurately.” That may be true, but the new color scheme is a disaster. The patches that represent parks and forests are now a bizarre shade of nauseating neon green. Gray now permeates neighborhoods and roads alike, and even the blue navigation line looks wrong.

Were this my only issue with Google Maps, it probably wouldn’t have been enough to convince me to switch. Sadly, it’s one of many. Notably, Google Maps doesn’t realize a small road leading out of my neighborhood is a real road. For more than year, I’ve had to mentally override Google Maps when I realize it’s trying to take me half a mile out of the way because it can’t detect that road. Apple Maps, on the other hand, has never had this problem.

Furthermore, Google Maps just doesn’t seem to understand how to navigate Phoenix, Arizona, as well as Apple does. When my girlfriend gets in the car and I load up Google Maps, she rolls her eyes. She’s utterly convinced that Google takes us on routes that aren’t as efficient. While I think both apps are prone to making some odd choices, there’s no question that Google Maps has suggested questionable routes more often than Apple since I moved here.

I still believe Google Maps has plenty of advantages over Apple Maps. When I lived in New York City, there was no better way to navigate the subways than Google Maps. Even after I knew the N and W trains like the back of my hand, I would still check Google to see if they were running on time and how far away they were from my stop.

But living in the suburbs of Phoenix, what was once inconceivable has now become inevitable. The recent changes to the user interface were just the last straw.

As strange as it feels to leave Google Maps behind, I hope this is a wake-up call for the design team. I’m just one Google Maps user, but I’m far from the only user dissatisfied with the latest updates. Maybe Google can win me back in 2024.

Instagram is the undisputed king of mobile photography, for better or worse. And while there’s been no shortage of competitors over the years, none has gotten anywhere near the popularity of the OG IG, thanks in no small part to it having the might of Meta (nee Facebook) behind it.

One that I’ve been using for much of 2023, however, is Glass. It’s been around since August 2021 and bills itself as “a true community platform for photographers.” And as such, it’s really good. It’s not meant for taking pictures in the moment and spewing them out in real time — it’s for uploading and viewing only, with no camera capability in the app. Nor does it have a habit of stealing features from Snapchat and TikTok, so no Stories or Reels. And images are in much higher resolution than what you’ll find on Instagram.

It also doesn’t have any advertising. Or influencers. Or public like counts. It’s all photos, all the time, with cool features for searching by category, member, cameras, or even individual lenses, which makes it possible to easily find some remarkably rare shots. And Glass is available pretty much anywhere you’d want it, from phone and tablets (yes, the tablet experience is excellent, something Instagram still hasn’t bothered with),to a web browser at

Those are some of the biggest differences between Glass and Instagram. Another — probably the biggest — is that you have to pay to post or actually follow anyone on Glass (you can view individual accounts — here’s mine, for instance). And starting in 2024, the cost of membership is going up a bit, from $30 a year to $40 a year. There’s also a “Patron” membership that gets you early access to features as they’re being worked on, and three annual memberships to share with friends. That’s going up from $99 to $130 annually.

If you sign up before December 31, you can lock in those 2023 prices for one more year. (And Glass is offering a $10 credit to current members if they ask, which at least extends the transition.)

Is any of that worth it? I suppose it depends. If you’re a professional photographer, or a semi-pro who likes to see cool stuff and share cool stuff — or if you’re just over the whole Instagram thing at this point, which is completely understandable — it might be.

The first thing to buy your new phone is not a case

The first thing to buy your new phone is not a case

Congratulations on your awesome new phone! Black Friday and Cyber Monday brought some drop-dead amazing deals, and you finally pulled the trigger. Before you finish your setup, before you head out into the world, before you even stick your phone in a case, there’s one thing you need to buy and apply to that shiny new screen: a screen protector.

I hear those groans in the back, and I hear you. For many, a screen protector can seem superfluous and annoying. It’s this extra layer between you and your screen, and it’s something you’re going to feel every single second while using your phone. If the texture is wrong, it can mess up your perfect game or lead you to mis-swipe an item when making a purchase — or worse, instabuy something you didn’t mean to.

It also doesn’t help that installing screen protectors is often a frustrating affair unless you have access to a sterile clean room and the hands of a neurosurgeon. I’ve made a literal career out of cases, screen protectors, and accessories, and even I mess up screen protector installations about a third of the time.

This article was produced in partnership with Supcase, but its contents were not shown to the company beforehand. All content is written independently and meets Android Police’s stringent editorial standards.

But really, the benefits of a screen protector far outweigh the minuscule nuisances of installation. Even if you never drop your phone in the 2-5 years of owning it — and what did you sell to an eldritch deity for that superpower? — a screen protector applied early helps keep your phone in pristine condition for resale or trade-in. It helps the screen’s original oleophobic coating remain intact rather than being eaten up by the oils in your hands and the french fry grease on your fingers.

It also helps keep your screen free of microabrasions — those tiny little lines you see across the glass when you hold your phone up towards a light source — and potential warping of the screen. I used a review phone for two years without a protector, and once I finally put it on, there were consistently air bubbles over two buttons from my favorite Android games. (I tried five protectors from three brands; it happened with them all.)

The pitfalls of searching for screen protectors

When buying a screen protector, there are a few things to keep in mind, and the first one seems counterintuitive but is critical: You can’t blindly trust ratings and customer reviews. This isn’t just to drive you towards our lovely screen protector guides; screen protector reviews and ratings get bombed and manipulated for a multitude of reasons beyond the protector’s actual quality.

If you mess up a screen protector’s installation, the product is ruined; it doesn’t matter if it was improperly-worded directions, user error, or just that one damn dust spec that snuck in between pulling the dust-grabbing sticker away and aligning the protector on the guide. Many manufacturers sell screen protectors in multipacks specifically to avoid or cushion these complaints as “Well, the first one didn’t work, but the second one was fine.”

Tempered glass screen protectors offer better protection but also introduce a new crop of reasons to be blasted in a user review. If a glass screen protector is too thin, it’ll break too easily in transit, but if it’s too thick, it might not work with the fingerprint sensor. Even if it is thin enough, due to the quality control variances on under-screen fingerprint sensors, what may work perfectly fine with one Galaxy S23 may not work at all on the S23 next to it.

That’s assuming that the ratings and reviews on a product listing are reviews for this screen protector for your exact phone. A lot of screen protector companies either put multiple phones on the same listing or re-use old screen protector Amazon listings (like this shameless IQShield) for new models so that they start out with reviews and ratings.

This is why brand names and brand histories are important. Either buy protectors from known brands in the segment — Zagg InvisibleShield, Whitestone Dome, ArmorSuit, Supershieldz, UniqueMe, Spigen, and LK — or make sure to check not only your phone’s screen protector review but also others by the same brand and sold by the same vendor.

Glass or plastic?

Next, screen protectors come in two main flavors: films and tempered glass. Film screen protectors have some small degree of self-healing after small indents or scratches, they’re much more affordable and play better with curved or foldable screens. Because they’re thinner and less rigid than glass, it’s much easier for the corners of a film protector to peel up around the edges and trap/hold air bubbles.

Films can sometimes get a bad rap for looking and feeling cheap because the texture can vary so drastically from the natural glass of your phone, though brands like Zagg have made some headway with thicker hybrid films that feel more like glass than previous generations.

Tempered glass screen protectors offer significantly more impact resistance — basically, the glass screen protector shatters while your phone’s actual screen stays intact — but because of their rigidity, they can have issues with curved screens and are incompatible with curved displays. Tempered glass screen protectors can also interfere more with the fingerprint sensor and touch sensitivity of your phone. This can be partially mitigated by re-enrolling your fingerprints and turning up the touch sensitivity on your phone, and some screen protectors have a separate adhesive/texture used for the screen right over the fingerprint sensor to avoid interference. (Those circles are noticeable, though, which buyers will often downgrade a review score over.)

I recommend tempered glass if you’re more prone to dropping your phone, need that pure glass texture, or tend to change cases frequently, as cases can peel up film edges depending on how thick of a lip they have around the screen. Film protectors are ideal for phones with flexed screens, those that tend to scratch up protectors often, or for those concerned with slimness.

A word on built-in screen protectors


One way to avoid weird “seams” or gaps between the screen protector’s edge and the case’s lip is to buy a case with a screen protector built-in. There are many cases — mostly heavy-duty models like the i-Blason ArmorBox — that come with pre-installed plastic screen protectors that are firmly attached to the front frame of the case.

These technically fall under the film screen protector category, but they behave in some significantly different ways. Most noticeably, the screen protector actually sits a millimeter or two above the phone’s glass except for a circle of adhesive over the fingerprint scanner. Gaps play havoc with fingerprint sensors, especially ultrasonic ones, so these built-in protectors have the same special treatment over the sensor as tempered glass.

This means that you’ll have to see the same bubble, and the gap can also be detrimental to gaming and incompatible with the S Pen. So, if you tend to play on your phone a lot, you’ll want to look elsewhere, but if you treat your phone as a tool rather than a toy, a heavy-duty case with a built-in screen protector like the Supcase UB Pro lets you protect all angles of your phone for less.

Adhesives, cures, and the installation processes that use them

There are almost as many screen protector installation methods as there are accessory makers out there, but screen protectors usually tend to adhere one of three ways:

  • Adhesive-backed protectors have the adhesives already applied to the film or glass, so all you need to do is line things up and press down in proper directions.
  • Cure-based protectors use a solution that is poured on the screen and then pushed to the edges by the protector before being cured with a UV Light. The most well-known of these is Whitestone Dome Glass.
  • Wet-install protectors are essentially a precursor of cure-based protectors that use a solution between the protector and the glass to allow users to reposition the film immediately after application, then sit and let the solution dry and evaporate to bond it to the screen. They’re very rare to see these days as adhesive-backed protectors could get away from the old dot-matrix style and UV-cured protectors became mainstream.

When properly installed, cure-cased protectors will better bond with your screen, are less prone to air bubbles, and can look/feel invisible because they’ll lack the circles over the fingerprint sensors most other glass screen protectors need. However, the installation process can be complicated, and if you get the UV solution into the speaker, earpiece, or into the buttons, they can be difficult or near impossible to fix.

In short, it’s not for the faint of heart, but with properly-written directions and YouTube videos to follow along, they can be done semi-easily at home.

For the rest of us, adhesive-backed screen protectors have never had easier installation systems, with many having “one-touch” designs that will perfectly align everything and then apply the protector with a single swipe of your finger. If you’re skittish about installing a protector yourself, look for one-touch or “easy install” protectors with clear images of the setup in the listing. Even for those that aren’t, plastic installation alignment frames are all but standard these days and make the process worlds easier than it was five years ago.

Give it time before introducing a case


As a case queen, I’d love to tell you to stick your phone into a kickass case immediately, but after installing the screen protector, do yourself a favor and leave the phone naked and alone for a few hours. UV-cured or adhesive, a short rest will prevent anything from potentially shifting, smearing, or slightly lifting at the edges, which is something cases have been known to do to freshly-installed “edge to edge” screen protectors.

If you can, install the screen protector shortly before bed and then put a case back on in the morning. If not, try to give it at least 1-2 hours before you slip a case back on. And watch carefully while putting a case on. If a corner starts to peel immediately, take the case off immediately and decide if you’ll buy a new case or a new screen protector.

Properly picked protection will keep your screen scratch-less and spotless for years to come, and if your screen protector must give its life to defend your digital lifeline, thank it for its sacrifice and check its warranty. Many name-brand screen protectors come with lifetime warranties, though you’ll likely lack a protector for a week or two while the replacement gets sent to you.

Furiosa Trailer: The Prequel to Mad Max Fury Road Is Here

Furiosa Trailer: The Prequel to Mad Max Fury Road Is Here

Mad Max: Fury Road was a game-changing, rip-roaring, masterpiece of filmmaking and now we finally have our first look at Furiosa, its follow-up. Today is a lovely, lovely day indeed.

It’s called Furiosa, it’s a prequel to Fury Road, and it follows Charlize Theron’s iconic character before her adventures with Max. This time, Furiosa is played by Anya Taylor-Joy, and from the looks of it, director George Miller has once again crafted a symphony of cinematic chaos. Here’s the much-anticipated first trailer for Furiosa, which hits theaters May 24, 2024.


Does anyone else need a cigarette after watching that? Because holy crap. George Miller does not disappoint with this first look, which is just chock full of painting-worthy imagery, practical action effects, winks and nods to the world of Fury Road, and Taylor-Joy looking beyond freaking badass all along the way.

As for the story, the trailer certainly sets it up but here’s how Warner Bros. puts it officially:

As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.

Knowing where the story goes in Fury Road, we don’t predict things go too well for Hemsworth’s Dementus, who looks kind of bonkers. But it should be an incredible showdown.

Officially called Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, Miller’s latest opens May 24, 2024.

While a laptop offers portability, the raw power from the Mac Studio is worth looking at. This particular model has the M2 Max chip, 32GB of Unified Memory, and 512GB of SSD Storage, all in the classic Mac Studio design, but every config is discounted in the Mac Studio Price Guide.
