Pokemon GO updates never killed cheaters

Pokemon GO updates never killed cheaters

Now that Christmas approaches and the latest Pokemon Event is a atop us, it's not just the Pokemon GO Plus users we're wondering about - it's cheaters. We were to understand that cheaters would be kicked out of Pokemon GO ages ago - that's what the Safety New update was for, wasn't it? Apparently not, as Pokemon GO continues to be plagued with cheaters of all sorts, all around the world - mostly with GPS spoofers.

Evernote’s apology changes nothing

Evernote’s apology changes nothing

This morning Evernote CEO Chris O'Neill sent an email to apologize for and clarify this week's Privacy Update blunder. This apology suggests that two factors make what they're doing OK in their eyes. One of these factors is the user's ability to opt-out. The other is the idea that "select" Evernote employees may see "random content" from Evernote users. This is not good enough.

Evernote will “look at your data” (how to opt out)

Privacy in saved information in Evernote might not be what it used to be come January 2017. According to the company itself, they'll be updating their service to "process and take action on [your thoughts] - to think." If that weren't creepy enough, they're also updating their privacy policy which now includes an opt-out provision which says Evernote Engineers wont "look at your data to improve the service."

Snapchat Group Chat vs Snapchat Spectacles – will they work?

This week the folks at Snap are bringing Snapchat Groups to the chat platform. This system allows up to 16 people to chat in the same room - almost like a chatroom! It's like we're back in the year 1998 and America Online has allowed us to go online and be in message groups about topics we love and chatrooms that are still in their infancy - only now, we do it with photos and brief video clips instead of text.

The Apple Car is more than just four wheels, and iPhone is the key

The Apple Car is more than just four wheels, and iPhone is the key

Apple isn't going to make car innovation faster when it's already slowed mobile device market disruption to a crawl. The newest round of rumors on Apple's dealings with the auto industry got me thinking. Apple hasn't become one of the world's most successful companies over the past 10 years by entering saturated markets. Barring any sort of device we've seen before, I'm crossing my fingers that Apple has the next big market disruptor in the pipeline and coming soon.

A flock of drones could save Apple Maps

A flock of drones could save Apple Maps

Picture the scene: Tim Cook cackling at the top of his castle, screaming "Fly, my pretties!" as a wave of drones swoop out to give Apple an edge over Google Maps. The Cupertino firm's homegrown navigation app, Apple Maps, didn't arrive to the best of reviews, and while the software has undoubtedly improved since its debut in late 2012 - not to mention benefited from being the default app in iOS since then - it's still struggled to emerge from under that initial cloud. Now, Apple apparently has plans to significantly boost the software's usefulness.
