Politifact Releases Mobile Game

Politifact has been busier than average, fact checking American politics and ensuring Americans have a place to go for non-partisan fact checking, a place to check the statements their politicians make, which are increasingly misleading and false.

Animoji Stars in iPhone X Ad

When the iPhone X was first released, we quickly discovered Animoji to be a surprising and highly entertaining standout feature. One of the videos that caught my eye is below, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, performed by some cute emoji. It was an idea Apple hadn’t even considered: Animoji karaoke.

iPhone X Meta-Review
