YouTube update will highlight authoritative medical advice videos
by Paul Hill
Have you ever used YouTube to learn more about an illness that may be affecting you? Apparently, it’s something a lot of people do and YouTube has noticed, so it’s going to start highlighting authoritative medical videos on its platform. Dr Garth Graham, Director and Global Head of Healthcare and Public Health Partnerships at YouTube said the new initiative puts health professionals at the core of its efforts to provide useful information.
From this week, YouTube users in the United States will begin to see the new features when searching for health-related videos. Health source information panels will be shown on videos if the content is from a reliable content creator and health content shelves will highlight authoritative videos when you search for corresponding health issues. While these notices will help to find good quality information, videos from other sources will still be available.
Discussing the work that has gone into this update, Dr Graham said:
As things stand, only accredited health organizations and government entities are included in the health context features rollout but YouTube is searching for ways to broaden the eligibility so more authoritative content is available to viewers. YouTube is also looking for ways to bring this feature to audiences around the world.

GitHub introduces video uploading across its platform
by Paul Hill
GitHub has announced that it’s now possible for users to upload videos across its platform. MP4 and MOV files can be uploaded in issues, pull requests, discussions, and more. The inclusion of this feature will open up new possibilities including clearer demonstrations of new features or bugs in software projects.
The firm previously released video uploads as a beta feature back in December but now it’s considered stable enough for everybody on the platform to use. Now that it’s available, all users can upload videos to help maintainers reproduce bugs, provide context on pull requests for reviewers, give a demonstration of new features currently in the prototype phase, and more.
Commenting on the ability to upload videos, Lauren Brose from GitHub said:
The ability to upload videos is also arriving with mobile support. Both the iOS and Android GitHub mobile apps are capable of uploading videos to the platform but you’ll need to update the apps to their latest versions.

Unboxing and first impressions of the Intel-based Honor MagicBook Pro
by João Carrasqueira
At IFA 2020, Honor introduced the MagicBook Pro, a 16-inch laptop powered by a Ryzen 5 4600H processor, as opposed to the U-series processors found in its non-Pro MagicBooks. Now, the company has introduced an Intel variant of the MagicBook Pro, which actually released in China even before the AMD version was introduced.
What's interesting about the Intel-powered MagicBook Pro is that instead of using an H-series processor like the AMD variant did, it actually has a Core i5-10210U, meaning it only has a 15W TDP instead of 45W. However, we now get a dedicated GPU in the form of the GeForce MX350 from Nvidia, while the AMD variant came with only the built-in graphics on the Ryzen processor.
Aside from the processor change, the rest of the laptop is nearly identical. There's a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, 16GB of dual-channel RAM, and a 56Wh battery. However, that battery is rated for an extra half-hour compared to the AMD version, for a total of 11.5 hours of battery life. The display is 16.1 inches diagonally and it has Full HD resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio. There's no space for a camera above the display, so it's in the keyboard instead, as we've seen with other MagicBooks.
While a full review is coming soon, you can check out our first impressions of the new MagicBook Pro in the video below.
