Back in August, Yahoo added live customizable filters and a bunch of professional editing tools to its Flickr Mobile app for iPhone and iPod touch. Today, another significant update to the Flickr iOS app introduces two brand new features i.e. automatic uploading from your camera roll to its servers at full resolution as well as automatic photo straightening using the Flickr editor. Before today’s update, users had to upload their camera roll photos to Flickr from their iPhone or iPod manually. The new Auto Upload feature for iOS 7 users allows them to automatically save their photos to Flickr, securely and privately, until they’re ready to to edit and share them. The other new feature i.e auto-straightening, makes it very easy to straighten your photos during editing. With Auto Upload, you can always find your smartphone photos wherever you want — within the Flickr app and on Flickr.com. Have you ever framed up  the perfect photo but got bumped as you took the shot? It can be pretty frustrating. With the tap of a button, the Flickr app will instantly straighten your picture. It’s a tool that works like magic when your photo is just a little bit off. Today’s Flickr Mobile app update still does not bring native support for iPad. You can grab the free update for iPhone/iPod touch at the following App Store link: Download Flickr App for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad [Direct Link] Yahoo Adds Auto Upload and Auto Straightening Features To Flickr App for iOS is a post from: iPhone in Canada Blog - Canada's #1 iPhone Resource

Insipred by Apple’s hottest-selling gold iPhone 5S, Samsung teased a gold version of Galaxy S4 a few weeks back and now, HTC has decided to join the gold rush as well with a $4,400 special edition of its flagship smartphone i.e. the gold HTC One, The Verge reports. Unlike Apple and Samsung, HTC will produce only 5 of these exclusive HTC One units, each made with real gold. The report notes that the Taiwanese manufacturer will produce five 18-carat gold HTC One smartphones to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the MOBO Awards, a British awards ceremony celebrating “music of black origin.” “The company values the gold-plated handset, which was created in partnership with gold customizers Goldgenie, at £2,750 (roughly $4,420), although it’s not going on general sale.” For those who fancy a gold plated HTC One, there’s a 24-carat gold-plated edition available for just over $3,000 directly from Goldgenie. And if you’d rather get yourself an iPhone 5S in gold, you can try your luck and win one for free by entering our 32GB unlocked gold iPhone 5S giveaway.

Interview with Eric Roussin In this episode, Doc and I speak with Eric Roussin from Ottawa, Ontarrio, Canada. Eric has owned grippers for longer than most of us, but never got serious of developing his crushing Grip Strength or competing in Grip Sport until just a few years ago. Since he was a teenager, Eric has been competing in Arm Wrestling, which anyone can tell you is a pretty good way to develop the lower arms and hands. In today’s interview, we talk about Eric’s athletic background, what made him transition to more of a Grip Sport emphasis in his training, and what he thinks are some of the methods that work out well for developing strong arm for the arm wrestling table, and a strong hand for the Grip Sport platform. Also, we discuss Eric’s excellent performance at the Holdfast Gauntlet, finishing 2nd in the overall and winning the Trap Bar Hold for Time. Download the show here. Upcoming Interview: Chad Netherland This week, I will be interviewing performing strongman and Master of Destruction, Chad Netherland at TheGripAuthority.comTheGripAuthority.com. I can’t wait to find out how someone who breaks baseball bats and keeps airplanes from leaving the runway trains. Here’s the episode of Stan Lee’s Superhumans that he was recently on. Do you have any questions you’d like to ask Chad? If so, leave them in the comments section, and I will do my best to work them in. If you’d like to hear this interview, join me at TheGripAuthority.com today, and let’s develop world class grip strength together. All the best in your training, Jedd Give a One-of-a-Kind Gift This Holiday Season.

It is no secret that Vevo has been working quite hard to transition from web browsers and mobile apps to other mediums. The go-to music destination for millions of people around the world seeks to expand its reach beyond these two mediums and it has found the answer in internet connected TVs. Only recently the Vevo app for Apple TV was launched, which puts the music service on millions of TVs around the world. It has now launched the official app for Samsung smart TVs and blu-ray players, to further bolster its entry into living rooms. The Vevo app for Samsung smart TVs and blu-ray players is available from today. It will give users access to Vevo’s massive library of music videos from more than 25,000 global artists. Users will also have access to concerts and original shows. Vevo says that the experience has been tailored for Samsung’s devices and easy viewing. It is only compatible with those TVs or blu-ray players that were either released this year or last year. There will be no need to sign up for a Vevo account in order to use the app. Users are allowed to create playlists of up to seven music videos without needing an account. At this point in time, the app is available in select markets, including the U.S., UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, New Zealand and more.

VEVO announced that it is launching on yet another connected TV platform today, making its music videos now available on the latest Samsung Smart TV products. The launch will grow the number of viewers who will have access to the company’s streaming service, while also improving monetization of its content. Over the past several years, VEVO has moved to make its music video apps ubiquitous across all screens and all connected devices. It started out on mobile devices and tablets but has been gradually expanded to Roku, Apple TV, and the Xbox. As a result, VEVO’s app becoming available on Samsung Smart TVs isn’t that big of a surprise. The app will be made available on Samsung Smart TV products — both actual HDTVs and Blu-Ray players — from 2012 and 2013, and will work in a number of different geographies, including the U.S., Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Spain, and the U.K. According to the company’s blog post, the Samsung app is built for TV viewers. When launched, it will go directly to the company’s recently launched live VEVO TV interface. VEVO TV is kind of like the next generation of MTV, built for the streaming video set — it’s a human-programmed group of music videos that run in a linear feed. From the Samsung TV app, viewers will also be able to browse different genres of music videos, to get a continuous feed of certain types of music. They’ll also be able to view playlists that they’ve put together once they’ve connected the app to their own individual accounts. For VEVO, the goal is not just to get its 75,000 music videos in all the different places where viewers might see them, but to better monetize those videos on new platforms. Since the company controls all the ad sales and placement on new connected TV platforms, it gets more money than for videos that appear on, say, YouTube. While YouTube is still the biggest single distribution platform for VEVO, more of its revenue is coming from new platforms and from original content. Expect VEVO to try to take advantage of this as it expands to even more online and connected devices as time goes on.

J.P. Arencibia finished the 2013 season with a .227 on-base percentage, which is not the worst OBP by a qualified hitter since 1900. It’s not the second-worst. It’s not the third-worst. It’s not the fourth-, fifth-, sixth-, seventh-, or eighth-worst on-base by a qualified hitter since 1900. It’s not an on-base percentage of a qualified hitter at all. Yes, Arencibia, at the end of the season, dropped just below the threshold needed in order to qualify for the batting title. To do so a player needs to have 3.1 plate appearances for every originally scheduled game that his team played, which means that, playing a 162 game schedule, a player needs 502 PA. Arencibia finished the year with 497. He was five plate appearances shy of posting the second-worst qualified OBP since 1900, and the worst since Hal Lanier in 1968. The fact that he wasn’t qualified doesn’t change how bad he was, and so this conspiracy theory is maybe a bit silly, but something interesting did happen on the final weekend of season that could have impacted his qualifed status: Josh Thole caught a day game after a night game in order to give Arencibia the day off. Thole caught as R.A. Dickey pitched– with the dome closed, you may remember– on September 28th, and then was back out there the next afternoon, catching J.A. Happ. Say what you will about how staggeringly terrible Arencibia’s production has been all season, doesn’t it seem a little odd, maybe, that one of the club’s ostensible regulars– while the Jays are playing a team fighting for a playoff spot, and paying lip service to the integrity of the game– would be held out in favour of Josh Thole catching a day game after a night game, in a lineup that already featured Moises Sierra hitting cleanup, and Gose, Goins, Langerhans, and Pillar as well? Yeah, OK, Arencibia has long been dealing with a knee issue, and the only players to have played in more games behind the plate this year were Salvador Perez and Matt Wieters. And sure, it seems like a hell of a leap to think that the Jays may have held him out for dubious reasons, just so we all can no longer technically say “second-worst qualified on-base since 1900.” But… I dunno, maybe? Or maybe I’m just looking to rage out at someone because of how annoying it’s now going to be to have to always write that he had “the second-worst on-base since 1900 of anyone with at least 450 plate appearances.” Or “the fifth-worst on-base since 1900 of anyone with at least 400 plate appearances.” Or “the eighth-worst on-base since 1900 of anyone with at least 350 plate appearances.” Or “the twentieth-worst on-base since 1900 of anyone with at least 300 plate appearances.” Or… well… you get the idea. That last one may even be the most impressive of all, actually. If the number of entries shown on the database at FanGraphs can be trusted (and having worked with these giant leaderboards a bunch, I’m not entirely confident in saying they can– they seemed to move around a little) there have been 20,574 seasons since 1900 in which a player has amassed over 300 plate appearances. Twenty thousand! And all but nineteen of those were worse, in terms of on-base, than Arencibia’s 2013! In other words, we witnessed something truly more magical and rare than any other fan base in the Majors this year, you guys. I mean… by the end there I had been trying to qualify Arencibia’s atrociousness by pointing out that so much of what made his season truly abysmal was the fact that he was run out there so many times– that it was made to look a little more remarkable than it was because of the high cutoff in terms of plate appearances. Surely more guys have had seasons as bad, their teams have just had the good sense not to play them so often, I assumed. And… it’s true. Technically. If
