And your laptop’s webcam might not the ideal camera to use for these calls because of its quality. Some manufacturers such as Fujifilm and Olympus let you turn the camera into a webcam. But I don’t expect everyone to have one lying around. Besides, billions of people over the world has an iPhone. So, it’s easier to turn that into a webcam. Luckily, NeuralCam’s new app, NeuralCam Live, lets you do that and more. The company has previously released apps for… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: iPhone

A criminal investigation has been launched after a police officer was filmed apparently kneeling on a teenager’s neck in July during an arrest.The incident, on July 17, came as Leeds United fans celebrated their club’s promotion to the Premier League. Just one day earlier, a Metropolitan Police officer in London had been suspended, and another placed on restricted duties, after a separate video appeared to show one of them kneeling on a man’s neck in Islington.The West Yorkshire Police officer will be interviewed on suspicion of common assault by investigators from the police watchdog and investigated for gross misconduct.Footage shared on social media shows a 17-year-old boy restrained by officers on the ground outside Elland Road stadium, with one appearing to use his knee.The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is appealing for witnesses to the incident at around 5pm on July 17.IOPC regional director Miranda Biddle said: “We understand why the images that were circulated caused considerable public concern.“After the footage was shared on social media, a voluntary referral was made to us in relation to the conduct of the officer.“Having examined a range of evidence including body-worn video and initial accounts from the officers involved in the restraint, we have taken the decision that this is now a criminal investigation.“A criminal investigation does not mean that criminal charges will necessarily follow.“It is vitally important that the circumstances of this incident are subject to an independent investigation so we can fully understand what happened and impartially determine the facts.“We have already begun to gather evidence but would like to speak to anyone else who was at Leeds United’s ground at the same time for these celebrations and may have witnessed the incident.”A wave of Black Lives Matter demonstrations have been sweeping the UK following the death of George Floyd, a Black man, at the hands of US police officers.Floyd was killed on May 25 when a police officer kneeled on his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds.Meanwhile the Met’s Deputy Commissioner Sir Steve House has described footage of the earlier Islington incident as “deeply disturbing” and said some of the techniques, which are “not taught in police training”, caused him “great concern”.The man’s lawyer called for a formal apology from Scotland Yard.Related...

Huawei and TikTok were two of the most successful examples of globalization. Huawei started as a small private firm in 1987 and has risen in just over 30 years to become a world champion in telecommunications. TikTok has succeeded over a much shorter time period. Having only launched in 2016, the video-sharing service is now the fourth most popular app in the world and has achieved 1.9 billion downloads worldwide. Both of these Chinese companies are now at the mercy of a widening geopolitical divide. The US has led an increasingly successful campaign to eliminate Huawei from the global market… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Huawei
