THE REAL OBAMA TURNED UP
Photo and video messages that disappear after a few seconds have been popularized by Snapchat, the mobile messaging app that reportedly spurned multibillion takeover offers from Facebook and Google last year.
This ephemeral format has been especially popular with teens and young adults who like to exchange silly or racy messages without fear they'll be
haunted by them later.
Now Apple is getting into the game. Audio and video messages within iOS 8 will automatically vanish within a few minutes (Apple didn't say how many) unless you adjust your settings.
"You don't want to have to clean these up. Audio and video messages can take up space," said Greg Joswiak, head of iOS product marketing. "So they're set to self-destruct unless you choose to keep them."

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new letter by intelligence investigators to the Justice Department says secret government information may have been compromised in Hillary Rodham Clinton's private server, underscoring an inescapable reality for her presidential campaign: Note to Self: Email is forever.
Clinton, the former secretary of state and now the leading Democratic presidential candidate, wants to focus on the economic issues she and her team believe will drive the next election. But they remain
unable to fully escape the swirling questions surrounding her decision to run her State Department correspondence through an unsecured system set up at her New York home.
The inspector general of the U.S. intelligence community recently alerted the Justice Department to
the potential compromise of classified information arising from Clinton's server. The IG also sent a
memo to members of Congress that he had identified "potentially hundreds of classified emails"
among the 30,000 that Clinton had provided to the State Department — a concern the office said it
raised with FBI counter-intelligence officials.
Though the referral to the Justice Department does not seek a criminal probe and does not specifically target Clinton, the latest steps by government investigators will further fuel the partisan furor
surrounding the 55,000 pages of emails already under review by the State Department.
