The online short videos platform is rapidly becoming the content production application of choice for hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis to showcase their creativity, engage with like-minded people, and, in many cases, even kick-start a new, successful career as a broadcaster from home. Video is quickly emerging as the most preferred interaction medium among all Pakistani demographics, and instant creation and broadcasting capabilities significantly add to the positive user experience. Likee has democratized access to excellent production quality, without requiring professional guidance and systems.
Spokesperson at Likee said, “Likee is committed to empowering its users to be the best broadcasters they can be through a leading range of technical and entertaining features, in order to bring the best out of every piece of unique content. We have seen millions worldwide flock to Likee for the ease and creativity of its capabilities, and are proud to be at the forefront of the content revolution in the online short videos platform.”
The capabilities within Likee include basic features such as photo templates and background editing, as well as more advanced features such as video templates that can change facial expressions, a special effects lens filter, and an AI lens filter that will learn the user’s preference over time. This enables users to grow their skill-sets by becoming familiar with the various features available. The app also learns over time, as the AI capabilities start to offer up edits and actions based on previous usage.
With features such as the Face Magic, Photo Video, and Makeup, users are no longer limited to the video as it was shot. From expressions, emotions, appearance, backgrounds, and even setting, everything is now editable. Effectively, there are no limits to creativity, as users can continuously revisit their content and edit and update. One piece of content can also form the basis for numerous engaging posts.
Apart from these in-app features, Likee also brings in special backgrounds, scenes, and effects periodically. These are tied to current hot-topics or popular movies, bringing users the opportunity to explore and express their creativity even further.
There is no limit to creativity, and there is no limit to Likee’s ability to showcase, enhance, and celebrate this. Likee users just need to bring the idea – the tools, features, and audiences are ready!
Likee is a prominent global short video creation platform, with cutting-edge special effects video shooting and editing tools. Created by BIGO Technology Pte. Ltd, Likee was initially released in July 2017 and is now one of the world’s most popular apps. Likee is aimed to make it easy for everyone to create amazing videos and record memorable moments.

The 12th Man
Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is expected to receive planning permission this week to build a 400-million-pound ($494.24-million) research and development centre in Britain’s Sawston village.The facility, 7 miles (11 km) from Cambridge, will be built for researching and developing chips for use in broadband.
The South Cambridgeshire District Council has been advised to approve the company’s application in full, the media reported.
The Chinese company wants to build the facility in the village of Sawston, seven miles from Cambridge. The area is frequently referred to as ‘Silicon Fen’ because of its cluster of high-tech firms. It hosts, among others, Japanese major ARM Holdings, and the new Huawei center is set to be located just 15 minutes from its headquarters.
According to the report, the local council has already been advised to approve Huawei’s application in full, and it is set to decide on the first phase as early as upcoming Thursday.
It is believed the center will become operational next year and employ 400 people, and will be used for researching and developing chips for use in broadband networks – the same technology which the US has been trying to block access to for the company.
Washington has been pressuring its allies, including the UK, to fully ban Huawei from the rollout of 5G networks, claiming that the Shenzhen-based firm represents a national security threat over its alleged links to the Chinese government. Huawei has denied the allegations. Earlier this year, Britain decided to allow the company to take part in its next-generation mobile networks.
Although London capped Huawei’s 5G involvement at a 35-percent market share and excluded it from supplying equipment to “sensitive parts” of the network, Washington was unhappy with the development.
In January, some US senators said the decision threatens to unsettle relations between the two nations. US President Donald Trump even considered restricting the UK’s access to intelligence shared between the ‘Five Eyes’ nations.
Though the Trump administration eventually backed away from that threat, it continued its pressure campaign against the Chinese vendor. In addition to blacklisting the company, the US tried to cut it off from global semiconductor supplies, which are necessary to manufacture 5G equipment and smartphones.
British security officials are studying the possible impact of the restrictions and have told operators to ensure they have enough Huawei equipment amid fears that the sanctions could disrupt the Chinese company’s ability to maintain supplies
Due to the COVID-19 global outbreak, industry digitization has entered a new phase of explosivedevelopment —a sign of the market’s strong resilience and its great potential for growth. Digitization can drive innovation in both government management models and business models of vertical industries, as well as boost production and service efficiency. With this in mind, what is the direction of digital transformation in various industries, and how should they transform? What advantages can Huawei bring in helping enterprise customers achieve business success? At the Huawei Global Analyst Summit 2020 (HAS 2020) on May 19, Huawei Enterprise Business Group shared its insights into industry trends and challenges it currently faces with global analysts and media. Huawei Enterprise Business Group will work with partners to explore the industry digitization market and help customers accelerate digitization and intelligence processes.
Due to external environmental changes, Huawei has great confidence to achieve its challenging new goals.Firstly, the development and unified application of new ICT technologies such as 5G, AI, and cloud computing has significantly accelerated the digital transformation in vertical industries. Secondly, due to the pandemic, governments and enterprises around the world have now realized that digital transformation is imperative. Therefore, the power and potential of a digital world is evident.
Mr. Qiu Heng, President of Global Marketing for Huawei’s Enterprise BG, introduced the business performance and objectives of Huawei Enterprise BG in 2019 during his “Bring Digital to Every Organization” speech. With support from global customers and partners, Huawei Enterprise BG achieved a sales revenue of CNY 89.7 billion in 2019, 86% of which came from partner contribution. Huawei serves more than 50,000 enterprise customers worldwide. Furthermore, 228 of the Fortune Global 500, and 58 of the Fortune Global 100 have chosen Huawei and Huawei’s partners to assist them in digital transformation. In Shenzhen alone, Huawei has helped more than 1800 enterprises implement digital transformation across finance, transportation, manufacturing, electric power, education, and healthcare. In the future, Huawei will continue to empower customers’ business success by leading industrial digital transformation, driving campus and data center reforms, and developing cutting-edge star products.
Huawei has been promoting digitization in the transportation industry for 20 years. By deeply integrating 5G, AI, and ICT within the industry, Huawei has helped transportation customers improve safety, efficiency, and experience in all areas. Mr. Xiang Xi, Vice President of Huawei’s Global Transportation BU, shared Huawei’s experience in the transportation sector,”With the transportation industry becoming more integrated in the future, Huawei will continue to cooperate with ecosystem partners to build a unified comprehensive transportation system by focusing on ‘One ID for Travel, One Order for Logistics, and One Brain for Operations and Supervision’.”
The digital transformation of the financial services industry strives to be “fully digital, fully intelligent, and fully open”. Due to the pandemic, the financial services industry has never been more confident and determined to implement digital operations. In addition, the financial services industry has demonstrated its advantages and value in conducting digital operations with new technologies. Mr. Vincent Chen, CTO of Huawei’s Global Financial Services BU, said that Huawei will continue to leverage its innovative technology and leading practices in ICT infrastructure to help financial institutions execute business strategies such as inclusive finance, as well as data-driven business innovation and open banking in order to deliver stable, secure and agile financial services.
The energy industry is facing challenges such as energy transformation, low-carbon needs, energy security, and friendly interaction in energy consumption. Mr. Xia Wenbo, Chief Digital Transformation Officer of Huawei EBG Global Energy Industry, believes that these challenges will accelerate the transformation and upgrade of the electric power industry. “Huawei will work with customers in the electric power industry to promote the application of cloud computing, big data, 5G, and AI technologies in the industry, thereby ensuring secure and stable running of the power grid, supporting large-scale new energy access, and improving operational efficiency. In addition, this will help develop new services and accelerate the industry’s digital transformation,” said Xia.
In the future, Huawei will build the foundation for digital China and the core for a digital world based on “New Connectivity, New Computing, New Platforms, and New Ecosystems”.

Netflix has another month chock-full of content, both new and old, coming this March. Some popular Netflix shows return and some new Netflix Original Films make their debut.
There’s also plenty of movies and other content to keep you busy through the last full month of winter. Here’s some highlights before we move on to the Big List.
Kingdom, Netflix’s South Korean historical zombie drama, returns for its second season. The show takes place in the late 16th century after the Japanese invasion of Korea and is part period piece, part horror show. The first season was just six episodes long and the same is true for the second season. Kingdom Season 2 lands on Netflix on March 13th.
he other big Netflix Original TV show returning next month is Season 3 of Ozark. Jason Bateman’s crime drama set in the titular Ozarks last aired in August of 2018 so it’s been a minute. You’ll need to wait until March 27th to binge it, however. Still a ways off. I need to watch this show. My girlfriend is all caught up I’m pretty sure but I’ve only seen the first episode. Too many shows! How can I keep up?
Altered Carbon’s second season airs February 27th but it’s only the first Altered Carbon show you get to watch this year. The dystopian cyberpunk series is getting a Netflix Original Anime created by Cowboy Bepop creator Dai Sato called Altered Carbon: Resleeved. It hits Netflix on March 19th.
Another exciting release is the third season of Netflix’s animated Castlevania series from producer Adi Shankar. It’s a terrific animated video game adaptation and I’m thrilled for a new season. This is the correct way to adapt a video game into another medium and other film and TV producers should take note.
Some quality films head to Netflix on the first of the month which is when we always see the majority of non-Netflix movies drop. Shawshank Redemption is a classic redemption story based on a Stephen King novella and definitely worth watching. I haven’t seen it since high school, come to think of it. I should probably remedy that.
The very strange, extremely dark There Will Be Blood also comes to Netflix on the first. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring Daniel Day Lewis, I honestly don’t know if I can honestly say I liked the movie but I’m still glad I saw it if that makes any sense. It’s a good film, just relentlessly bleak.
If you’re looking for a mobster movie—maybe The Irishman wasn’t your cup of tea?—the wonderful classic Goodfellas also lands on the 1st. For my part, I think Martin Scorsese was never better. Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci . . . it’s one of the greatest mob movies ever made. Just writing about it makes me want to watch it again.
Ironically, Outbreak is also landing on March 1st. I’ve just been thinking I’d like to watch that again. Maybe it’s the whole coronavirus scare but it’s just been on my mind. It’s a great movie starring Dustin Hoffman alongside a great cast about a deadly virus that gets an entire town in California quarantined. Very tense, exciting movie and somewhat timely I suppose.
Okay, there’s lots of other great stuff coming to Netflix in March. Check out the full list below.

Earth view is a collection of the most striking landscapes found in Google
Earth. The idea for this database of wallpapers came about from people taking
screenshots of the virtual globe for desktop backdrops.
Recently, Google added 1000 new high-resolution images to the Earth View wallpapers, bringing the total to 2500 wallpapers now. The images added are from places like the United States, Greenland, Venezuela, Australia, Antarctica, and Saudi Arabia.
The upgraded images, as per Google’s blog post, are optimized for high-resolution screens featuring “brighter colors, sharper images, and resolutions up to 4K.”
According to Google:
Earth View has the power to elevate our minds from our tiny screens to outer space — the landscapes that materialize when you open a new tab or unlock your phone punctuate your day with a global looking glass. My hope then is this funny, little project — along with Google Earth as a whole — moves us to care more deeply about this strange but kaleidoscopically beautiful planet.
The Earth view wallpapers are leveraged for ambient mode on idle Chromecast-connected screens and Android TVs as well as for Smart Display Photo Frame, and in the Wallpapers app on Android.
Apart from this, the Earth view is accessible from the online gallery where users can also see a color map to visualize and find every available location. The images are also available in Chrome’s Earth View extension.
