YouTube Responds After Failing to Credit Video From One of Its Own Creators in Tweet

The issue was surfaced Dec. 25 by YouTuber and domino artist Lily Hevesh, the creator of the video from which the clip was pulled. Hevesh quoted YouTube’s tweet in question and replied: “I’m a bit disappointed that YouTube would take my video and re-upload it with absolutely no credit.

The removal of Moana, however, was likely out of Netflix’s hands. With Disney soon launching its own streaming service, Disney+, the company is ending their deal with Netflix in 2019. That means that more Disney films owned by the Walt Disney Company will slowly begin to disappear from the streaming giant as the months pass. – Allison Schonter, PopCulture.com http://bit.ly/2CrZyFb

YouTuber builds glitter bomb that farts on unsuspecting package thieves

Rober wanted to be able to film the entire incident as it unfolded. The result is an over-engineered bait package that took six months to develop, and used motion sensors, a GPS tracker, and the combined wide-angle cameras of four mobile phones. It even used fart spray to ensure the thief would throw it away, so that Rober could recover and reuse it. – Jon Porter, The Verge https://ift.tt/2rR54eF
