Tech Bytes: The @ symbol has come to Youtube, Amazon’s second Prime Day
Amazon has kicked off it’s second Prime Day event of the year. The Prime early access sale runs through tomorrow, offering deals on hundreds of thousands of items. You can get a fire stick for as low as $20, a Keurig mini coffee maker for $50, and save $70 on Airpods Max.
The @ symbol has come to Youtube. The site has introduced handles to help creators identify their channels. The @username format mimics the symbol’s use on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The handles will appear on channel pages as well as Youtube shorts.
The fictional dating app from “Ted Lasso” is coming to Bumble, for real. “Bumble Live” will let users chat without seeing pictures of each other. If they match with their person, they will be able to see their full profile. The fun begins on Thursday.
