Microsoft is finally adding end-to-end encryption support to Microsoft Teams later this year. A preview of end-to-end encryption in Teams will be available in the first half of this year for commercial customers. It will be available for 1:1 unscheduled Teams calls and is designed for more sensitive conversations.
This will mostly be useful for confidential conversations between employees or for scenarios like an IT admin providing an employee their password over a call. The initial preview will be limited to 1:1 unscheduled calls, but Microsoft plans to expand this to scheduled calls and online meetings over time.
Despite being an annoying hipster, I definitely did not see this one coming: Facebook is releasing an app that will let users post and share videos of them rapping over beats, which are provided by the app (via TechCrunch).
The app is called Bars, and its main selling point is it provides the beats and lets you create 60-second rap videos over them. According to TechCrunch, you can then post the video to a TikTok-style feed, where people can watch it and mark it as “fire” (that is, of course, if your skills are up to par). The app also promises “studio quality vocal effects,” including actual, honest-to-goodness AutoTune. I hope there’s a slider that goes from “making my voice passable” to “T-Pain.”
You would think the entire world would know how the Zoom world works by now. Lawyers can be cats, congressmen are sometimes inverted, but pants are not actually optional.

Despite its later-than-usual timing and going completely virtual for the first time, yesterday’s BlizzCon keynote brought with it some big news and exciting trailers. It also featured a musical performance from Metallica. The band isn’t new to BlizzCon, having first appeared at the conference in 2014.
Viewers on many platforms (including Blizzard’s own Twitch and YouTube channels) heard a performance of Metallica’s 1984 tune “For Whom The Bell Tolls.” Several Twitch streamers broadcasting BlizzCon muted the feed during Metallica’s appearance to avoid any potential DMCA troubles.
Allegedly “Prince Midnight” is likely a Tampa area serial prankster who engages in elaborate long game hoaxes to get in the news & record books.
Michigan man who sued his parents for throwing out his prized pornography collection is now in line to collect a hefty reimbursement from them.
In a ruling handed down Wednesday by US District Judge Paul Maloney, Beth and Paul Werking will have to pay their son David, 42, as much as $75,000 for destroying the porn.
The pigs were trained at a “rudimentary joystick-operated video game task” that had originally been created to test chimpanzees and rhesus monkeys. They learned how to manipulate a joystick with their snouts to move a computer cursor across a screen. Once they maneuvered the cursor to hit a wall, a treat dispenser connected to the joystick would deliver a snack.

A metal-loving musician in Tampa, Florida, has just made a guitar unlike any other ― no bones about it.
That’s because Prince Midnight made his “Skelecaster” using both the remains of a leftover Fender Telecaster and the bones of his dearly departed Uncle Filip, the man who introduced him to the rock genre back in the 1990s.
