Digital Coffee and the search for the best live stream angle. Facebook has just added the live streaming feature for Android users, so now, we can finally live stream on Facebook. Has a dream come true? There are plenty of alternatives out there, this is just Facebook ruling the internet. I love and prefer Blab over all other offerings, but they all offer something different in a way. I also talk about the never ending wars of words about encryption. It is a hot topic. It’s sad to see that most Americans do not understand what is at stake. We need strong encryption. Yes, that could mean it could be harder to catch a terrorist, but our government has been terrible at it anyways. There’s more I talk about. Scroll down to find out more!
Gamer’s Cafe replaying your chats. Hey, Gamers! Twitch added a new feature for everyone. They are letting people replay their chats. You can replay lovely chats every day! I do think the best news was being able to drive the batmobile in Rocket League. You will have to pay for it, but awesome! There is also so much going on in gaming this week it’s crazy. However, I am glad that Twitch keeps updating their site with better options. Now, they just need to make it where people can make money or have a better affiliate program. Anyways, enjoy the gif!
Marketing Blend AMPed your Reaction and Personal Branding. Yes, today I talk about your personal brand. That means I dive into the Yelp open letter. It was an interesting turn of events. It was also a good lesson on cost-benefit analysis and personal branding. Many people supported her and it was picked up by many media organizations. The unfortunate turn of events was that she was fired from her job. She seemed shocked and blindsided, but, why didn’t she see it coming. If you criticize a company online, there are going to be consequences for that. It’s important to think about what you are posting, and if you should post it.
Digital Coffee is now in session with its own Congress. Yes, we are in session to get no work done. We? I mean I am the only one in this Congress. I should get a lot done!

Digital Coffee password is 12345. Yes, now I have to change my luggage combination. It was such an easy password to remember. Yes, I talk about the debate between Apple and the big bad government. This is a fight that is really the FBI’s fault. They are the ones that made is harder to crack the information they need. However, it’s easier to make Apple the villain. Besides the FBI really does not care about protecting your privacy or rights. They only want to spy on us. I will and forever be against the government spying on me. I do not care if I have “nothing to hide” argument. They should have probable cause to do that, as the constitution states. Ugh… Anyways, there’s more tech news!

If you missed the news, Foursquare just did a major redesign of their app. From a design standpoint, it is slick, and appealing to the eye. Foursquare is betting big on discovery. Foursquare is pivoting itself away from checking-in and focusing on finding various different establishments. This could be a great thing for Foursquare and brands if they can convince their loyal followers to continue to use it. Since the launch of Swarm, many users have been frustrated by their decision to split their apps up. It was not received well, and the tech news sites have been wondering if Foursquare is relevant anymore.
Mods are great. They have been since the 90s and have made many games last way longer than the developer intended them to last. Part of Battlefield 2‘s success comes from the modding community. People still play that game today. Counterstrike would not be a game without the ability to mod the game Half-Life. However, adding mods can be difficult. Here are a few ways to do it. I rank them on how difficult they are.
Digital Coffee wants you to safely trust me. Technology is always changing and not for the best. Luckily, most of the tech news today are great. That is a good thing in my book. Instagram is making your accounts more secure, but that does mean you need to a little work. The two-factor authentication is a great way of saving yourself from a hack. It is a great step for Instagram. However, you are going to have to do some legwork. You are going to have to go in the settings and then add your number and then wait for your phone to get the code. Anyways, other news stories that you need to know:
