WDL's "control anyone" twist works in a twofold manner.

When walking or standing around, focus your aim on any character, then hold down the "hack" button (left bumper on an Xbox gamepad).

Maybe that person has heard anti-Dedsec propaganda from an increasingly militarized British government (more on that in a bit).

Whatever the case may be, that person can be won over to your cause to become a fully militarized member.

Maybe they have some financial issues that could be conveniently wiped away with a single computer hack.

There's certainly fewer characters wandering through this virtual city than we've seen in other typical open-world games, which seems to imply that Ubisoft is taking this "full backstory for every character" gimmick seriously.

We weren’t treated to an answer that invoked raking the forest floor or cold weather or ice caps being at a “record level” (?).

According to the Washington Post, here’s what he told Morgan, which reads like Trump’s brain trying to reboot in real time:

“I believe that there’s a change in weather, and I think it changes both ways.

Don’t forget it used to be called global warming.

“Forty years ago, we had the worst tornado binge we’ve ever had.

Clearly, his words didn’t leave a mark on Trump’s very good brain.

Every Halloween, marketers do their best to spook consumers with ads and activations like Budweiser promoting responsible drinking with costumed mugshots and Reese’s candy vending machines, but what scares them about the ad industry?

Fiona Bruder, evp, client success, George P. Johnson

With so many new brands and agencies jumping into the experiential marketing moment, I’m afraid that some are selling themselves short with transparent activations that are little more than Instagram opportunities.

The possibility of .5-second ad units and a data-driven copywriting artificial intelligence that can write smart-ass survey answers better than I can.

CamSoda today announced the launch of DerbyCast, a way for women to enjoy the Kentucky Derby with the Lovense Lush sex toy.

It’s a follow-up to the buzzing sensations it introduced for the Super Bowl.

DerbyCast allows individuals with a connected live sex toy (Lovense Lush) to sync their toy to the racehorse they wager on this Saturday.

As their selected horse makes its way around the track, the user’s Lovense Lush will vibrate in accordance to its performance — faster for the horse being ahead of the pack and slower for it lagging behind the pack.

For example, if a user wagers on “Game Winner” and the horse gets a quick start out of the gate, the Lovense Lush will vibrate very fast and will continue to do so if it leads the pack around the 1.25-mile track.

However, if “Game Winner” falters after a quick start out of the gate and falls behind the pack halfway through the race, the Lovense Lush will slow its vibrations.

(University of California - Santa Cruz) Psychology researchers at UC Santa Cruz found that playing games in virtual reality creates an effect called "time compression," where time goes by faster than you think. The research team compared time perception during gameplay using conventional monitors and virtual reality to determine that this effect is uniquely linked to the virtual reality format.

In the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” episode “The Measure of a Man” Data, an android crew member of the Enterprise, is to be dismantled for research purposes unless Captain Picard can argue that Data deserves the same rights as a human being. Naturally, the question arises: What is the basis upon which something has rights? What gives an entity moral standing? The philosopher Peter Singer argues that creatures that can feel pain or suffer have a claim to moral standing. He argues that nonhuman animals have moral standing since they can feel pain and suffer. Limiting it to people would…

Call of Duty: Mobile, the much-awaited PUBG Mobile rival from Activision, is now available to play on Android and iPhones across the world.

The first-person shooter game is based in the same universe as the extended Call of Duty franchise and features popular maps, characters and weapons from the previous games.

Developed by Activision and Tencent's Timi Studio, the Call of Duty mobile game was announced in late-2018 at a time when PUBG Mobile was gaining exponential momentum.

Shortly afterward, the developers released a public beta version of the battle royale game and now it's finally available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Call of Duty: Mobile picks up a lot of elements and locations from the series' catalog that spreads for over 16 years, with games like Modern Warfare and Black Ops.

The game features popular characters like John “Soap” MacTavish and Simon “Ghost” Riley and Alex Mason from the Modern Warfare and Black Ops series.

About 59% of people say listening to the right music can make sex better, and 56% feel the right music can make them more adventurous in the bedroom, according to a survey by smart home speaker maker Sonos.

But the company said it conducted a global survey of 12,000 people across 12 countries for the study.

Globally, people who listen to music three or more hours a day say it is more essential than coffee, sex, or TV.

In the bedroom, 27% of listeners have turned up their music so others wouldn’t hear them having sex, and 22% pick music based on the type of sex they want to have.

Unsurprisingly, listening to music also elevates our emotions and reduces stress — 68% of people said music improves their mood, and 74% said they feel less stressed when listening to a favorite song.

Music was more effective in helping people get things done than drinking coffee, and put listeners in a positive mood at work.
