Pokemon GO Update : Trading, War, and Peace

Buddy Pokemon are nearly here and we're already looking to the next big thing. We're crossing our fingers and cursing our crystal ball for the update to Pokemon GO - Season 2, the one where everything changes. Before we get there, though, we've got a few things to discuss. Today we're going to begin with a brilliant realization by Bob of Boblandia, a Silph Road member and analyzer of the game Pokemon GO. He realized that though the tweaking of item drops in PokeStops, Niantic is able to control the dynamic of the entire game.

iPhone 7 release date options: colors and sizes and Android

iPhone 7 release date options: colors and sizes and Android

The release date for Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is upon us. While this set of iPhones looks a lot like iPhones we've seen in the past several years, a set of new options makes this an interesting switchover point for many consumers. People that've been using an older iPhone from 2 or more year ago, especially will be looking to upgrade - but there's also the people that are less-than-satisfied with what's just happened in the Android universe. While we don't expect a large number of switches over to the other side this generation only because of Samsung's misfortune, we do expect there to be some fallout.

Google Photos on iOS brings Motion Stills magic to Live Photos

Google Photos on iOS brings Motion Stills magic to Live Photos

Last June, Google introduced the (strangely) iOS-only Motion Stills app that brought some stability to the otherwise mostly shaky Live Photos feature on Apple’s platform. While it did create some fascinating GIFs, it had one major flaw. It was a different, somewhat obscure app that users had to first know about before they could install. Google has now addressed that issue, ironically killing Motion Stills in the process. Yes, Google Photos has been updated to bake that feature into the app itself. Presuming, of course, you also have it installed in the first place.

Super Mario Run will come to Android, but Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem delayed

One of the biggest surprises at Apple's event yesterday actually had nothing to do with the iPhone 7. It was the appearance of Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto on stage to announce the iconic game company's first real game for smartphones, featuring its most beloved character: Super Mario Run. There was a lot of talk about the game debuting on iOS this fall, enough to question whether it would be a platform exclusive.

iPhone 7 Plus dual-camera: how does it work?

This week Apple revealed their headliner iPhone 7 device with a design very similar to the iPhone 6s - but the Plus, that's a different story. The iPhone 7 Plus was revealed with two camera lenses at its back.

As such, we're interested in seeing how Apple is making use of both of these lenses - and both sensors under the surface.

This week the folks at Apple revealed a new kind of home button for the iPhone 7, one that no longer clicks. This is a non-moving home button for the iPhone 7 - making use of the device's built-in Taptic Engine. Force now works - not unlike the device's extra layer of touch sensitivity throughout its touchscreen. Apple used the words "force sensitive solid state" - which means, in a sense, that it's a lot less prone to breaking or wearing out.
