In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at part of the year in photos, national monuments, the iPhone X (and accessories), Nan Goldin, layer masks, the image tag, Instagram and denagging macOS.

  • Colin Bendell explains the Evolution of IMG Tag in Safari Tech Preview, which now accepts MP4 files as the source in IMG tags. Cinemagraphs don't have to be GIFs anymore.
  • Mallory Locklear reports Instagram Can Now Automatically Archive Your Stories. "Instagram will automatically save your Stories after their 24 hours are up and they'll exist in a separate archive section of your profile," she writes. You can also add Stories permanently to Stories Highlights under the bio in your profile. Rolling out now.
  • In Are You Being Pestered to Upgrade to High Sierra?, Howard Oakley points out the one little file you can delete to remove the nagging prompt. You would think a company that released the product with such an embarrassing security flaw (addressed only last week) would humbly delete it themselves. But it's not a humble era.

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for health coverage under the American Health Care Act until Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
