Hello T-fans.The video sharing platform TikTok has been deluged with one star reviews after an indian TikTok star (Faizal Siddiqui) posted a spoof video of an acid attack.
The video in question which appears to be a glorification of acid attacks, shows Mr Siddiqui threatening a woman who had left him for another. In the clip, he threw liquid (water) at the woman's face but the next scene showed the woman's face covered in make-up that resembled the scars and bruising that acid might cause. This didn't go down too well for a lot of people who criticized the video for its negative intent, especially with acid attack survivor, Laxmi Aggarwal and the Indian National Commision for Women Affairs.
Faizal Siddiqui is the brother to Amir Siddiqui, another TikTok content creator who recently embroiled himself in a controversy after posting a video on instagram, accusing Youtubers of plagiarizing TikTok contents. A response from popular roaster Ajey Nagar, known as CarryMinati on Youtube against Amir Siddiqui's video was later taken down for violating the platform's terms of service. After his video was deleted on YouTube, his fans started a trend #RoastNahiFryKarunga and #BanTikTok on Twitter.
#BanTikTokInIndia, #TikTokdown, #TikTokexposed were also trending on the micro-blogging platform which saw an explosion of memes targeting TikTok and Amir Siddique, urging people to downgrade the app. Several anti-China and TikTok critics have jumped on the bandwagon asking for a ban on the Chinese platform, accusing its creators of promoting violence, hate, and acid attacks. Many users took this opportunity to rate down the TikTok app on Play Store and the rating has been diminishing ever since. Some went as far ascreating multiple fake accounts just to rate down the app and as a result, the app's rating is currenly at 1.4 stars at the time of this report.
In consideration of this recent development, Google has taken steps, removing over 5 million of its recent one star review. A spokesman for Google referred to the step by the tech giant as a "corrective action".
"When we learn of incidents of spam abuse, we review and take corrective action to remove inappropriate ratings and comments," he said.
Considering Google's step in the right direction, we might see a return of TikTok to its glory days on Playstore in the next few weeks.

I've been looking for it for ages and hope someone here has a solution. My goal is to find a stand-alone microphone that I can wear without a headset. I like hearing my home theater surround sound system while playing against putting on a pair of headphones, but it's hard to find a microphone that doesn't have to have a full set of headphones. I've used cheap headphone builds before and just dangled the headphones around my neck, but it's not optimal. I've looked through all the websites trying to find something not attached to the headphones, but they all seem to be the property of wireless systems for PAs. Since I want to use a microphone while I have a home theater system, I was looking for unidirectional microphones on the case or desktop microphones for a shotgun. I play games on my couch a little away from the speakers.
Does anyone have a good solution? I'm not worried about paying more than $ 50, which is easy to get a headphone+microphone solution, but it's hard to find something that is just a microphone.

Have you ever wondered how some authors on Tspot have been able to include text links, change font styles/font size, attached a file, aligned text, bold text, or include a Youtube video on their threads?
Here is a guide to answer your questions and help you Navigate through the difference between Tspot app & its web version.
Some of us may know this, while others may not, but there is a Tspot app and a Tspot web. Both are the same and serve same cause but there is a slight difference in features, designed to suit preference.
Take for example, the web version, it gives you alternatives to change text styles/size, align text, bold text, create a table, attach a file, upload a Youtube video and so much more. All of which are spread out through the site. The app version on the other hand attempts to take away the complexities of the web version in offering you the basics of what you need. This simplicity featuring parity has also been extended to the web version recently which now gives you the option to either browse through as a desktop site or web app (same as what you have on the mobile app). Understanding how to navigate through this difference not only adds beauty to your threads, but it also makes it easy to digest and helps you stand out from the crowd. So let's walk you through the web version.
Logging on to spot.tecno.com on your browser, takes you to the web app of Tspot, where you will be greeted by the interface below, with a pop up guide to educate you on navigation. You also get a redirection at the topmost right corner to open page via app, just incase you have it installed on your device.
And if you would like to access the site as a desktop site, which opens you up to lots of features, all you need to do is instruct your browser to switch to desktop. On Chrome (mobile), click on the three vertical dots (vertical ellipsis) at the topmost right corner and proceed to click on desktop site from the drop down menu. This will take you to a richly designed interface of Tspot, parked with features, some of which you will find on the web app or mobile app. And please note that the directory to switch to desktop site may be slightly different on your device, depending on your browser.
The topmost right corner of the UI (user interface) gives you three options, register, log in, and what country's page you are exploring at the moment on the site. Below that, you will find the home button, latest, forum, activity, and a search box.
Moving downwards, you will notice a split of the home page into two (left and right). On the right, you will find recommended topics and on the left, you will find the options; publish (release a new thread), a list of recommended sections, trending topics, recommended users to follow, download options of the Tspot app and lastly, popular activities on the site.
If you are logged in, a click on release new thread takes you to a page with lots of features to publish your article. A few of which you will find on the web app or mobile app. On the page, you can select the category for your article, text style/font size, align text, attach file, upload pictures, Youtube videos, and text links.
The first box to the left on this page gives you the choice of category and to its right, the classification from the category selected. Below it, you have the text box for title followed by another for the main article itself which gives you 14 options. All of which I would threat in groups in detail.
The first six options enables you change font style, bold text, change font size, colourize text, italicize text and underline text respectively.
The next three helps you align text. Left, center and right, respectively.
The last five lets you attach files, create tables, upload photos, upload videos and add text links respectively. The option for video uploads only permits YouTube videos and its a bit tricky to have it appear/playable in-app. Lets take for example the YouTube video of the Tecno camon 15 launch in Nigeria. If you search for this video on Youtube, you will have the link appear as https://youtu.be/e49DY3oKx1k. Pasting this link on the text box of the option that lets you upload a Youtube video on Tspot won't give you desired results. To get it right, what you need to do is to copy the link from Youtube and then paste on your browser to gain access. Doing this will have it changed from https://youtu.be/e49DY3oKx1k to https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=e49DY3oKx1k. Now what you need to do is to change the "m" on the link to "www" before providing it on the option box of Tspot that lets you upload a Youtube video. This means the link will no longer be https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=e49DY3oKx1k but now https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=e49DY3oKx1k. And that is what should go into the text box of the option that lets you upload a video.

It can be so difficult to get over that horrible moment when your phone accidentally slips and falls into water isn't it?
If this happens to you, you should immediately dismantle the phone and bury the parts in rice or silica gel to dry out the moisture.

Accessibility is a big thing for Google since this is a tech company that wants pretty much everyone to end up using their products no matter what else might be the case and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that technology is quickly becoming something that people often rely on for a wide variety of reasons. Hence, it is pretty understandable why Google would want something like this happening all in all, and in a new update the tech giant has brought a number of new features into the mix all of which are designed to optimize accessibility in every single way, shape or form.
The main accessibility feature that you are going to be getting has to do with Action Blocks, a feature that Google has been teasing for quite some time now. This feature will essentially allow you to make your own customized buttons which will be quite large in size which would then be used to fulfill whatever complex task you are having difficulty with such as opening up a music playing app or calling someone that you have on speed dial for example.
The sound amplify feature will also now be usable via Bluetooth which is every important because of the fact that sometimes you would be connected to a speaker or have earpods in and these are things that your sound amplification feature should ideally work with because of the fact that if you are hard of hearing then these are the kinds of places where a feature like this can end up being truly useful all in all.
These are some truly forward thinking features and this update is going to get Google into a lot of people’s good graces, something that the company is going to be able to capitalize on quite a bit in the future.Read all >>
As science has developed, researchers have found that these fruits are not only tasty but highly beneficial for health. Pineapples boost the immune system, fight off infections, viruses, and colds, fight inflammation, improve oral health, strengthen the bones, and help weight loss.
You can eat them raw, cooked, juiced, and blended, and enjoy their multiple minerals, and vitamins, including potassium, magnesium, vitamin C, copper, manganese, calcium, beta-carotene, thiamin, B6, folate, bromelain and insoluble fiber.
The regular consumption of pineapples offers countless health benefits, and here are some of them:
Being abundant in potassium, pineapples lower blood pressure, prevent blood clots and reduce stress on the blood vessels.
The high copper content of pineapples supports the formation of healthy red blood cells, boosts the oxygenation of body organs and the cognitive abilities, and maintains neural pathways, lowering the risk of neural disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
TREATS COLDS AND COUGHS
Vitamin C boosts the immune system and bromelain reduces phlegm and mucus buildup in the respiratory tract. This soothes coughs and colds.
BOOSTS IMMUNE SYSTEM
A single serving of pineapple provides over 130% of the daily requirement of vitamin C, that strengthens the immune system, treats illness, and improves overall health.
FORGET ABOUT JOINT PAIN
The high vitamin C content creates collagen, that ensures the health of the bones, blood vessel walls, skin, and other body organs. It also accelerates the healing of injuries and wounds.
Pineapples fight inflammation, and soothe the pain and accompanying symptoms of arthritis.
These fruits are rich in fiber that supports the healthy function of the digestive tract and treats issues like constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, blood clotting, and blood pressure.
Pineapples are high in manganese, which strengthens the bones and improves their growth, repair, and health.
Pineapples prevent the spread and development of cancer as they are rich in antioxidants like beta-carotene, flavonoid compounds, bromelain, manganese, vitamin A, etc.
Pineapples contain numerous beneficial components that improve vision and eye health and prevent age-related issues, like macular degeneration.
ORAL HEALTH CARE
The powerful astringent properties of pineapples improve the health of the gums and tighten up body tissues, preventing muscle weakness, hair loss, wrinkles, and skin loosening.
DID YOU KNOW THAT
In 1664, when they reached the American coast, Europeans saw the pineapple fruit, which resembles pine cones, and called it ‘pineapple’.
Pineapples are actually a cluster of hundreds of fruitlets.
In the wild, a pineapple plant can survive and give fruits for up to 50 years.
One pineapple plant can produce only one pineapple at a time.
A pineapple plant can be regenerated by planting a leaf.
Pineapples ripen faster upside down.
After being harvested, pineapples do not ripen any further.
Pineapples are added to all kinds of drinks and salad, but in Maui, they are also used to make wine.
Pineapples are native to South America, but the majority of the pineapples in the world now come from Southeast Asia.
Hawaii is the only US state where these fruits are still grown these days.Read all >>

3. BE CAREFUL HOW YOU PUT IT AWAY Unless you’re using a super-effective case or screen protector, ladies, avoid putting keys in the same section of your handbag as your phone. Gents – keys and phones don’t belong in the same pocket. If you’ve ever had a scratch that is right in the middle of the area you need to swipe, you’ll know that key scratches (and other scratches) can seriously ruin the touchscreen experience.
While you’re at it, don’t put the phone in dangerous places, like on a balcony railing, for example. That’s just asking for the phone to fall and get smashed to pieces. When you put your phone down, keep it away from hazards so it will survive till you’re ready to upgrade.
4. AVOID WATER AND EXTREME TEMPERATURES Most people don’t put their phones in water deliberately, but lots of people forget they have a phone in their pocket when heading to the beach or pool. One dip later, and the phone is toast (unless you manage to dry it out with rIce).
5. KEEP IT CLEAN You might not be able to see dust particles, but they get into your smartphone, even if you’re using a case or screen protector. Too much dust and your phone’s performance takes a hit. Use a soft screen-cleaning cloth with an appropriate screen cleaner to wipe your screen gently. Open the case every now and then to give the phone a wipe and get rid of the dust.
The five tips above help you provide external smartphone maintenance and protection, but safeguarding your phone is also about keeping it running smoothly. Here are some tips for doing that.
6. STREAMLINE AND UPDATE YOUR APPS Most smartphones include a bunch of apps that the manufacturer has installed. Chances are, you don’t need all of them. Since the more apps you run, the shorter your battery life, disable, or uninstall any apps you don’t need. For the apps, you DO use, make sure you’re always running the latest version. App developers update apps regularly, add new functionality, cut down on resource usage, and guard against malware and security threats.
Tip: Either set your apps to update automatically, or update them manually at least once a week.
7. CLEAR THE CACHE When you install apps or when they run, they may leave junk files behind in the cache. Those take up memory you could use for things you really want to do. Clear these files out from time to time. Both Android and iOS allow you to do this.
8. USE TRUSTED SOURCES Sometimes you want to download and install a new app, but where should you get it from? With the rise of malware on phones, the best advice is to use the app store for your device or another trusted app store, such as Amazon’s.
9. EXPAND YOUR STORAGE If your phone allows it, install an external SD card to increase the available storage, then run any apps you can from this storage. You can also use it to store media files. This frees up the phone’s internal memory, resulting in better performance.
10. LOOK AFTER THEBATTERY Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for looking after your battery. Depending on the age of your phone and the battery it’s using, this might include: charging your phone before it runs down completely letting it run down fully once in a while restarting your phone from time to time turning off services you don’t need (like mobile data when you can use Wi-Fi and live wallpaper) keeping the battery cool (and turning off the phone to let it cool down if it overheats)
There’s plenty of advice online about the best practices for your particular smartphone model. Finally, you also need to ensure you can find your phone if someone steals it. Use the security features built into your device to help with this: Lock your phone with a pin, password, or pattern. Don’t share your password.
Install a security app to help you find your phone if it goes walkabout.
