FaceApp privacy: We still recommend you delete

FaceApp privacy: We still recommend you delete

Today we're taking a look at the quick rise and confusing fall of FaceApp and the privacy concerns therein. Early privacy-centered reactions to the app were blown a TINY bit out of proportion - but concerns still remain, in a big way. Yes, the app was developed in Russia*, but the Russian angle has nothing to do with the amount of privacy you can expect from the app. The most important part of the situation is in the User Content agreement FaceApp demands you agree to before you use their app. In the agreement, users agree that their images can be used by the creators of the app for basically any reason, at any time, without further consent from anyone.

Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

If there was any reason at all to own a Wii U, Super Mario Maker was it. Super Mario Maker was so unique and so popular that I think if it would have been a launch title, the Wii U may have succeeded despite all that was working against it. Super Mario Maker 2 on Switch, then, was inevitable, and if you’re looking for more of a good thing, you’ll definitely find it here. Unfortunately, it isn’t all sunshine and daisies in the world of Super Mario Maker 2, as the consistent problems with Nintendo Switch Online hold this game back from achieving true greatness.

The mid-engined 2020 Corvette C8 is almost here, but there's more to Chevrolet's long-lasting sports car than just the location of its engine.
