OpenAI: Browse with Bing is Back
In July GPT-4 users recall being able to Browse with Bing from it’s interface, only to have it taken away. OpenAI had content publishers steaming because users were able to bypass paywalls. Now the feature is back with that fix in place, however many publishers are not allowing the tool to access their content even the content free to access. Still a valuable feature, but you’ll want to pay attention to the sources.

Save More Time
Check out this website and Chrome extension that summarizes youtube videos with clip playbacks and FAQs, Tammy.ai.
Our Take: The free version was an easy and intuitive tool to setup. The summaries came with time stamps and I was able to play back the specific clips I cared about. I did not try the pro version because I saw good value from the free version. The downside is the website product may not work for videos where a YouTube creator has disabled embeds (which is a popular choice these days), so you’ll want Chrome.
Why You Should Care: Many of us use YouTube to learn, whether it’s for work, finances, parenting, hobbies and other facets of life. The platform knows this and is great at dragging you into more videos, but that’s not always an efficient use of your time, especially long videos that will have sponsors or ads. There’s a lot of time to gain back if you can automatically generate summaries and play back the parts you care about (especially valuable in videos longer than 15 minutes IMO).
Mastering the /describe Command in Midjourney
If you’re not aware of the /describe command in Midjourney you’re in for a treat. It’s used to reverse engineer an image that you upload, giving you prompts to recreate similar images. Take this awesome image of Chicago for example.
When I upload this image following the /describe command, Midjourney gives me 4 prompt options to play with.
Individually, these prompts are generally not great. They’ll still be cool and highly artistic, but I want a very similar style to my original photo.
Here’s the hack: copy these 4 prompts and paste into Anthropic’s Claude and ask the tool to combine these 4 prompts, removing redundancy and creating a single detailed prompt. The result is below. Not bad right? Now I can create images of any other city or landscape I want in a very similar aesthetic.
