Selfie app Snow raises $50M from SoftBank and Sequoia China

a screenshot of a cell phone © Provided by TechCrunch It’s been a while since we heard from Snow, the Snapchat clone app in Asia that Facebook once tried to buy, but today the company behind it has scooped up a $50 million investment from SoftBank and Sequoia China.

Snow was started by Naver, the Korean firm behind popular messaging app Line, and it had proven popular in Japan, Korea, China and other markets in Asia thanks to a focus on localized filters, stickers and features. Not to mention Snapchat’s famous lack of effort in Asian markets.

The Snow app has changed significantly since we last wrote about it, however. It’s no longer a Snap clone.

A major updated that dropped last week removed Snow’s user-to-user communication features and turned it into a dedicated selfie camera app. Without chat, the app doubles down on filters, stickers, augmented reality (AR), and other selfie-related features to make photos and other media that can be exported to social networks or chat groups.

Snow users can now, for example, record a video set to music from artists that include Charlie Puth. There’s the usual array of photo filters, alongside a GIF maker and Instagram-like Boomerang feature.

Snow plans to use this new investment to develop its augmented reality and facial recognition technologies. Its App Store listing shows it is working with Chinese unicorn SenseTime on facial recognition.

It is also aiming to build partnerships and localize its service in China. Outside of Snow, Snow Corp also owns camera apps Foodie and B612, which it acquired from Line, so they may also be pushed in China as standalone apps, although the tech behind them is also shared with the core Snow app.

A Snow representative told TechCrunch that the app now has over 200 million downloads on iOS and Android. The company doesn’t break out specific data for each market, but it said that China is its largest market. In January 2017, we reported that Snow had 40-50 million monthly active users but there’s no further update on the MAU front for now.

SoftBank — and this is SoftBank Group not the Vision Fund — and Sequoia have bought up 20 percent of the shares of Snow’s China business unit via this deal. Line is among Snow’s other backersvia two investments.

Google’s Gboard debuts a quick way to create reaction GIFs

a screenshot of a cell phone © Provided by Engadget Google’s Gboard for iOS is lagging a bit behind its Android counterpart, but a new update for iPhone users comes with a game changer. As The Verge has noticed, its dedicated GIF-maker button is no longer hidden at the bottom and now has a more prominent position on the keyboard, right on top beside the word suggestion bar. So accessible, and so convenient. It’s made even better by the fact that it can now also record short video snippets using the front-facing camera, making it a veritable reaction GIF machine.

Simply fire up the Make-a-GIF button and record a Loop, which is a three-second Boomerang-like format. Or a Fast-Forward that lets you record up to a minute of footage and spits out a sped-up GIF. While we can confirm the button’s new placement on iOS, as you can see below, we don’t see it on Android yet. (Take note, however, that we only saw the button’s new placement when we re-installed the keyboard.) Gboard’s app store pages don’t have notes about the update either, so you’ll simply have to check it every now and then.

Mexican Marines Executed Three U.S. Citizens

Three U.S. siblings found dead in Mexico in 2014 were executed by Mexican marines and a border mayor’s paramilitary security team, the country’s National Human Rights Commission said Thursday.

Erica Alvarado Salinas, 26, Alex Alvarado, 22, and Jose Angel Alvarado, 21, all American citizens, disappeared in 2014 while visiting their father in El Control, a small town near Matamoros, a Mexican city in the dangerous state of Tamaulipas, across the border from Brownsville, Texas.

Their bodies were found sixteen days later in a field east of Matamoros. They each had been shot in the head, and the bodies were badly decomposed. Jose Guadalupe Castaneda Benitez, 32, a friend from Mexico traveling with the siblings, was also killed.

According to the commission’s report, witnesses said the four victims were forced into a vehicle belonging to the security detail of then-Matamoros Mayor Leticia Salazar Vázquez. Human rights investigators were also able to interview several men who reported being arrested the same day the American siblings disappeared. Many of them said they saw the group taken to an empty lot to be beaten and interrogated by the marines.

The commission determined that detention was illegal, as there was no order that would have explained their arrest. So far, state and federal authorities have denied involvement in the death of the victims. In a press release, the commission added that officials, marines, and state and federal police lied in statements to cover up the killings.

Of the arrests made by public servants of the Navy and Hercules Group on Oct. 13, 2014, no record exists, nor were they presented to any authority. There is not even an investigation involving (the victims), much less arrest orders or a complaint against them.

The commission delivered its findings to the Naval Secretariat, the governor of Tamaulipas, the mayor of Matamoros and Mexico’s National Security Commission. The murder case is still open. The government of Tamaulipas said they implemented human rights training for police in Mexico based on the report. They say the case is in the hands of federal prosecutors.

Tamaulipas has faced severe security concerns since the outset of Mexico’s war against drug cartels in 2012. Recently, the U.S. State Department issued a “do not travel” advisory this month for Tamaulipas and four other Mexican states, “putting the regions on the same level as war-zones such as Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan,” as reported by The Guardian.

As highlighted by the San Antonio Express-News, a United Nations envoy reported in 2016 that “extrajudicial killings and excessive use of force by security officers persist” in Mexico.

“Protective measures remain insufficient and ineffective; impunity and the lack of accountability for violations of the right to life remain a serious challenge, as does the absence of reparations for the victims,” the U.N. report said.

Elephants charge at police in foiled stakeout

Police officers were charged by elephants while staking out a suspected cannabis farm, dropping an automatic rifle amid the chaos.

The policemen had been camping outside a plantation in Sri Lanka in the hope of catching the alleged marijuana growers.

But the officers were forced to run for their lives as the animals hurtled towards them.

Police are now searching for the T56 automatic assault rifle in the Lunugamvehera nature reserve, 140 miles south of the country’s capital Colombo.

In a statement, police said: “The constables dropped their weapons and fled to save their lives when the elephants charged.”

The incident comes as figures show about 50 people are killed in wild elephant attacks each year in Sri Lanka.

However, about 200 elephants are killed each year by farmers who claim the wild animals stray onto their land and destroy crops.

The killings take place despite the animals, which are considered sacred by some in Sri Lanka, being protected by strict laws.

Latest figures showed elephant numbers in the country had fallen to just over 7,000 – down from an estimated 12,000 in 1900.

Dubai gold price remains steady at Dh151 for 22k

Gold prices held steady on Monday amid a softer dollar as the US government shutdown due to a funding impasse unnerved investors.    

Dubai gold prices are Dh161.25 for 24-karat and 22-karat can be bought for Dh151.50.

Spot gold was mostly unchanged at $1,331.57 an ounce by 0310 GMT. 

Spot gold fell 0.5 percent last week, its first weekly decline in six weeks. US gold futures were up down 0.1 percent at $1,331.30.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies fell as much as 0.5 percent to 90.155.       

Funding for federal agencies ran out at midnight on Friday, and was not renewed amid a dispute between US President Donald Trump and Democrats over immigration.

Republican and Democratic leaders of the US Senate held talks on Sunday seeking to break an impasse that has kept the US government shut down for two days, but it was unclear if a deal could be struck to reopen federal agencies by the start of the work week.             

“While the shutdown of government services in the US is not expected to last too long, traders are getting increasingly nervous about its impact on the economy,” ANZ analysts said in a note.

“Another strong week on equity markets is also starting to raise concerns about stretched valuations, which are also pushing some investors into the gold sector.”

Holdings of SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, rose 0.70 percent to 846.67 tonnes on Friday from Thursday.          

SPDR holdings rose over 2 percent last week, their best week since week-ending Sept. 3.

Adding a touch of bullishness to gold was data from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which showed that hedge funds and money managers had raised their net long position in COMEX gold contracts in the week to Jan. 16,

Spot gold may revisit its Jan. 18 low of $1,323.70 per ounce, as suggested by its wave pattern and a Fibonacci retracement analysis, according to Reuters technical analyst Wang Tao.               

Among other precious metals, spot silver was up 0.1 percent to $17.01. 

Platinum fell 0.1 percent to $1,011.65, after touching its highest since Sept. 8 at $1,015.20 on Friday. 

Palladium rose 0.1 percent to $1,105.97 an ounce. It touched record highs last week at $1,138. Flows of palladium out of UK stocks to Hong Kong are picking up as demand from Asian industry grows, pointing to a tightening market that could keep record-high prices on the boil.

Hundreds remember actress Jessica Falkholt

Hundreds of mourners have attended a funeral for Australian actress Jessica Falkholt, who died following a car crash that also killed her family.

The actress, a former star of TV soap Home and Away, was remembered at a church service in Sydney on Monday.

Falkholt, 29, died in hospital last week, more than three weeks after the accident on a New South Wales highway.

A funeral for her sister Annabelle, 21, father Lars, 69, and mother Vivian, 60, had been held in the same church.

“Beautiful Jess, you made us proud and you were a rising star,” her uncle, Paul Ponticello, said on Monday, the Australian Broadcasting Corp reported.

“Shine bright, you will always be remembered in our hearts forever.”

Australian police are still investigating the car crash, which also killed the driver of another vehicle, 50-year-old Craig Whitall.

A funeral notice published in the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday said Falkholt would be “deeply missed” by her family and friends.

Falkholt played Hope Morrison for 16 episodes on Home and Away before leaving the show in November 2016.

Last week, Channel Seven, the soap’s broadcaster, said Falkholt’s “shining talent” had been respected by all of her her colleagues on the show.

Co-stars have paid tribute on social media since the accident on Boxing Day.
