The next big update to Pokemon GO will likely hinge on what the Evertoon group will bring to Niantic. Niantic and Evertoon announced this afternoon that the former had acquired the latter.

AR View for Amazon isn’t like Apple’s ARKit or Google’s ARCore

AR View for Amazon isn’t like Apple’s ARKit or Google’s ARCore

The big difference between Amazon's AR experience and that of either Google or Apple is in their approach. While Apple and Google take a developers-first sort of run at augmented reality, Amazon is, as always, concerned first with the end consumer. Not the end user, mind you - the end consumer. AR View isn't a toolkit for developers to make Amazon-friendly AR apps - it's a feature in their own app with which Amazon can sell products.

Earlier this evening, Slack users began experiencing issues accessing the service. A few hours have passed and the messaging platform is still down, forcing companies, groups, and others who rely on the platform to resort to more archaic measures like email. The service disruption is a big deal given the huge number of groups and companies that rely on Slack for their daily communications.

Dating apps may not be secure: Kaspersky researchers detail risk

Dating apps may not be secure: Kaspersky researchers detail risk

Dating apps contain a lot of personal information about their users, and that makes any security risks particularly newsworthy. A single hack could reveal intimate messages and photos from thousands of users, opening them to potential blackmail at the hands of hackers or, perhaps worse, leave them exposed for anyone to spy on if the data were released on the Internet. That makes a new report from Kaspersky researchers particularly troubling.

WhatsApp message recall could be a life-saver

WhatsApp message recall could be a life-saver

WhatsApp users are spotting a new feature that hasn't officially been announced yet, but that has appeared on the service's FAQ page. The feature has been a popular request and gives users a way to recall -- that is, to delete -- a message they sent (hopefully) before the other person sees it. This is a life-saver if you accidentally send the wrong message or, in a moment of inebriation, say something dumb.

How to add multiple stops to an Uber ride

How to add multiple stops to an Uber ride

Uber has pushed out a new update that makes riding with the service more convenient than ever -- the ability to arrange multi-stop rides. It is important to note right off the bat that Uber doesn't intend for this to be a way to keep an Uber rider on hand while you go in shopping or to an appointment. Rather, it is a way for multiple people to share the same ride even if they're not in the same location or to make very quick stops.

Google Lens app download out for Pixel and rooted Android

Google Lens app download out for Pixel and rooted Android

Google Lens was made available to Android devices this week through Google Photos. This app within an app, as it might appear, isn't available to just anyone - only those savvy enough to root their device and install the files through the back door. As always with this sort of thing, I must warn the average user that this process can result in the bricking of one's phone - in other words, if one does not know what this process is all about in the first place, one should be exceedingly cautious.
