GoPro streams live video directly to PeriscopeExtreme streams hit Twitter feeds as GoPro integrates with Periscope. Also, Apple TV gets the Podcast app, and Uber is watching to see if drivers speed.
Get ready for extreme live streams in your twitter feed. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNET update. GoPro Action Cameras can now send a live stream of video to periscope, which is owned by Twitter. That means in your Twitter feed, you may come across live video from some of recording from GoPro, but there are some restrictions. Anyone can see it. But to broadcast, too, you need to have an iPhone and one of the newer GoPro, the HERO4 black or silver camera. The periscope app lets you switch between showing the iPhone view or the GoPro view. And the footage is still saved locally on the camera even while broadcasting in real time. A few XGames athletes will be streaming live this week from Aspen and Buttermilk Mountain and you can catch it on GoPro's Twitter account. But this also means you can expect people to be streaming in real time from their drones. So do we call these drone casts And speaking of casting, those of you with the new Apple TV should now have a software update to get the Apple Podcast app, so you'll be able to stream your favorite video podcasts from your living room, like CNet update, of course. It never made much sense why you couldn't get podcasts before when the older Apple TV models already had it, but It's there now.

But the link isn't always obvious right away if it's hidden in a short URL So people are trying to fool others to click on it. The website overloads the Safari browser, and after a few seconds, it forces your phone to reboot. Some may notice their phone will get hot as it tries to process the page. There are reports it can also **** up Chrome on Android, but a reboot should fix things. Remember kids, always practice safe browsing. But here's a new twist on safe driving. Uber is starting to monitor it's drivers in the US to see if they're speeding by looking at the phones, they've [UNKNOWN] and other motion sensors. The idea is that if a passenger complains that the driver accelerates too fast and breaks too hard, Uber could look into a driver's phone sensors To see if it's true. In the long-run it can also gather data on the average speed of a driver down a certain path and which drivers are going faster than they should. The phone knows all. That's it for this Tech News Update. You can catch up on the latest at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
