Track Santa’s Journey From the North Pole Using Google’s Santa Tracker

MacRumors readers with children who still believe in Santa Claus may be interested to know that Google today launched its annual Santa tracking feature, allowing Santa to be tracked in real time on his journey to the North Pole as he prepares to deliver presents to kids around the world.

Google has provided its Santa tracking feature for a total of sixteen years now, giving children around the globe access to a little digital magic.


Santa can be tracked using a web browser on iPhone, iPad, or Mac by visiting Google’s official Santa Tracking website. The site offers up a live map of Santa’s current location, his next stop, a live video feed of his journey, and the estimated time that he will arrive in each specific location.

The Santa site provides pictures of locations that Santa has already visited, a live count of gifts that have been delivered, and Santa’s current distance from your location. There are also a selection of games to play and videos to watch.

Other Santa tracking services are also available, such as the NORAD Tracks Santa Claus app and website, but Google’s site is often the most interactive and detailed.

How to Use the YouTube App’s New Voice Search Feature When Casting to a Smart TV

The official YouTube app for iOS has gained a new voice search feature that aims to make searching for content easier when you’re casting YouTube video to a smart TV.


Once you’ve connected your iPhone or iPad to a smart TV, you can search with your voice via the mobile app, as well as use it to pause, play, and adjust the volume on your TV. Here’s how it works.

  1. Download and launch the YouTube app on your ‌iPhone‌ or ‌iPad‌.
  2. Tap the Cast button at the top of the Home tab.
  3. Launch the YouTube app on your smart TV.
  4. If you haven’t connected your iOS device to your smart TV before, select Link with TV code and then tap LEARN NOW under “Learn how to get a TV code.” Otherwise, tap YouTube on TV to connect.

    youtube
  5. When your iOS device is connected to your TV, you’ll see an overlay on your device’s screen with a volume slider, a Remote button, and the new Voice search button – tap it.
  6. Tap the red microphone icon, and when you hear the audible prompt, say the word or phrase that you want to search on YouTube.

    youtube

You should see the results of your voice search appear on your TV. And don’t forget, you can use the Remote option in the YouTube app’s mobile interface to navigate and select the content that shows up on your TV.

According to German site SmartDroid, YouTube is currently working on improving the remote interface for controlling YouTube casting. The updated controls are said to include quicker access to captions and playback quality settings, but there’s no word on when we can expect them to roll out for the iOS YouTube app.

Twitter Bans Animated PNG Image Files After Attackers Target Users With Epilepsy

Twitter has banned the use of animated PNG image (APNG) files on its platform, after attackers targeted the Epilepsy Foundation’s Twitter account using images that could potentially causes seizures in photo-sensitive individuals.

The company said it had discovered a bug that allowed users to bypass its autoplay settings and enabled several animated images to be attached to a single tweet using the APNG file format.

“We want everyone to have a safe experience on Twitter,” the company said in a tweet sent from its Accessibility account on Monday.

“PNGs were fun, but they don’t respect autoplay settings, so we’re removing the ability to add them to tweets. This is for the safety of people with sensitivity to motion and flashing imagery, including those with epilepsy.”

We want everyone to have a safe experience on Twitter.

APNGs were fun, but they don’t respect autoplay settings, so we’re removing the ability to add them to Tweets. This is for the safety of people with sensitivity to motion and flashing imagery, including those with epilepsy. https://t.co/Suogtrop1u

— Twitter Accessibility (@TwitterA11y) December 23, 2019

The attacks on the Epilepsy Foundation’s Twitter account occurred in November, which was National Epilepsy Awareness Month. Twitter said that it was not aware that APNG files had been used, but the bug meant that they had the potentially to be harmful, so it had decided to ban them on the social media platform.

It’s unknown how many people may have been affected by the animated images, which exploited strobing light effects with malicious intent. The Epilepsy Foundation said it had filed criminal complaints against the accounts believed to have been responsible.

In addition to the seizure risk, Twitter said the APNGs also used up a lot of data and in some cases could be a direct cause of app crashes. As such, from now on only GIFs will be able to animate images.

Twitter also said that it would look into building a similar feature in the absence of APNGs, such as adding alt-text to GIFs, which will help make them more accessible to people who depend on screen readers to navigate the internet.

Analyst: Acquisition Accretive for Oklahoma Energy Company

Source: Streetwise Reports   12/24/2019

The favorable metrics of the transaction are discussed in a Raymond James report.

In a Dec. 16 research report, Raymond James analyst John Freeman reported that WPX Energy Inc.’s (WPX:NYSE) stock price jumped 9% on news of its acquisition of Felix Energy and with good reason, as the transaction is accretive to the hydrocarbon explorer. As such, Raymond James increased its target price on WPX to $17 per share from $15 and reiterated its Strong Buy rating.

Freeman reviewed the transaction specifics, noting that what WPX paid for Felix was below consensus’ expectation. The total consideration of $2.5 billion consisted of $900 million in cash and $1.6 billion worth of WPX shares. Through the deal, WPX gains “premier acreage,” about 1,500 undeveloped locations over 58,500 net acres in eastern, oilier Winkler, Ward and Loving counties in the Delaware Basin.

“Assuming $30,000 per flowing barrel for the expected production at close [early Q2/20], the transaction price implies a per acreage valuation of about $12,000,” the analyst explained. “On a 2020 enterprise value:EBITDA basis, WPX Energy paid about 3.5x, comparing favorably with consensus pre-deal for WPX at about 5x.”

While WPX will fund part of the acquisition by issuing about $900 million in senior notes, the transaction ultimately should be leverage neutral due to the expected, resulting boost in revenue.

Freeman also highlighted that WPX Energy’s management and Raymond James agree that the transaction immediately increases cash flow per share (CFPS), earnings per share (EPS), free cash flow per share, return on capital employed, and cash margins, assuming a $50 oil price and no operating efficiencies. In reality, ample synergies are expected from the merged companies.

Raymond James expects WPX to generate, in 2020, about $200 million in free cash flow (FCF) assuming a $50 West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil price, and about $500 million at $60 WTI, on a pro forma basis. “At strip oil pricing, our model has the operator generating about $350 million in FCF!” added Freeman.

With part of the FCF, Freeman pointed out, management plans to initiate a post-closing dividend, aiming for about $0.10 per share on an annual basis to start. It also intends to conduct favorable buybacks and reduce leverage to 1x by year-end 2021.

The “Surprise” bonuses will likely be live in the United States when December 24 rolls around.

Some of the available bonuses are free, while others appear to be holiday-themed in-app purchases, as outlined below:

  • Fortnite - Get an exclusive holiday outfit pack for a limited time, starting December 24.

  • PUBG - Limited-edition Santa suit and supply crates are now available.

  • Candy Crush Saga - Get extra-special items that last two times longer than normal.

  • Minecraft - Claim 1 free skin and 1 free world right now.

  • Homescapes - A free small-size pack of coins and items is all yours!

  • Clash of Clans - Receive 5 times more goodies with limited-edition Christmas bundles.

Apple's promotional email also highlights other games, such as Pocket City and Knights of Pen & Paper 2, though there are no specific holiday bonuses in these games.

Apple is going to be offering a separate bonus on December 24, as discovered in Australia and New Zealand this morning. In those countries, Apple is highlighting "surprises" from December 24 to December 29, with the first two being a discounted in-app purchase bundle for Looney Tunes World of Mayhem and a three-month subscription for the price of one month in Canva.

The "Surprise" bonuses will likely be live in the United States when December 24 rolls around.
