On ‘anniversary’ of failed coup, mobile users in Turkey get voice message from president Erdogan

Istanbul: When making a social phone call, you don’t expect to hear the voice of the head of state.

But mobile phone users in Turkey were surprised to hear a voice message by president Recep Tayyip Erdogan when placing a call around midnight on the anniversary of the failed 15 July coup.

After dialling a number, instead of hearing a dial tone users heard a voice message from Erdogan congratulating them on the national holiday of “democracy and unity” that marks the coup’s defeat.

Only after Erdogan’s message did the dial tone begin.

“As president, I send congratulations on the 15 July National Day of Democracy and Unity and wish the martyrs mercy and the heroes (of the defeat of the coup) health and well-being,” said the message read by Erdogan.

The message could be heard on Turkey’s largest network Turkcell, AFP correspondents said. The Hurriyet daily said it was also heard on the Vodafone network.

“People who wanted to chat on the telephone got an Erdogan surprise…” said Hurriyet.

Turkcell had already sent text messages to clients promising them a free extra gigabyte of data from 15 July in celebration of the coup’s defeat.

Users had in the wake of the coup bid received text messages from Erdogan. But this is believed to be the first time a voice message has been employed.

“Enough now… you even get it on the phone… how can there be such an insult, it’s like a nightmare,” opposition lawmaker Aykut Erdogdu wrote on Twitter.

Also just after midnight salah prayers from victims of the coup bid rang out from minarets of 90,000 mosques across Turkey, state media said.

Adobe debuts Project Rush, its new all-in-one video editor

Adobe today announced the launch of Project Rush, a new video editor that takes the core features of its pro tools like Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition and combines them into a single, more accessible tool. Don’t get too excited yet, though, the new tool will only be available later this year (and my guess would be a launch at the company’s Max conference in October).

The target audience for Rush is the average YouTube creator who is looking to get professional-looking results — and do so fast because the expectation on the platform is for regularly pushing out new content. Rush wants to become the all-in-one video editing app for creating and sharing online content and to do so, the team decided that it had to ensure that Rush was available on any device, no matter whether it’s a high-powered desktop or an iPhone. All projects are automatically synced to the cloud, so you can work from anywhere.

In building Rush, Adobe decided to leverage the technology it had already developed for its professional tools. That means when you tweak a video clip’s color, for example, you are using the same underlying algorithms as a video editor who works in Premiere, for example. Rush will also support Motion Graphics templates for building title sequences and graphs in videos and it’ll use the company’s AI tools for improving the audio of video clips. There is also an integration with Adobe Stock, in case you need a bit of stock footage to spice up your video.

Based on the demo I saw, this all looks pretty intuitive and quite a bit more like iMovie than Premiere.

Once you’ve created your video, the next step is obviously publishing it and in the spirit of helping creatives work faster, Rush features built-in publishing support for all fo the major sharing platform, be that YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat.
