Luckily, it isn’t too late yet, and Google can still make sure Play Pass doesn’t suck with a little bit more curation.

What makes Apple Arcade better than Play Pass is the exclusive game titles.

The Play Pass app selection is pretty overwhelming.

Most of these apps were already free.

When all is said and done, there are probably less than 50 great games and less than 20 great apps.

With websites, mobile technology and streaming services offering new avenues for advertising, television commercials are accounting for an increasingly smaller proportion of brands’ overall ad spend.

And smaller budgets mean TV spots often don’t carry the same cachet they once did.

Even if you weren’t alive yet, it’s likely you can still sing along to many of these jingles, or remember the catchy slogans.

“Pardon Me, Would You Have Any Grey Poupon?”

Show me kids born in the ‘80s, and I’ll show you kids who almost certainly poked their heads out the sunroof of a rented prom limo and shouted Dijon mustard brand Grey Poupon’s tagline at unsuspecting passersby.

“I’ve Fallen, and I Can’t Get Up!”

U.S. consumers spent an average of $138 on iPhone apps last year, an increase of 38% year over year, largely driven by the pandemic impacts, according to new data from app store intelligence firm Sensor Tower. Throughout 2020, consumers turned to iPhone apps for work, school, entertainment, shopping and more, driving per-user spending to a […]

After months of vlogs, Instagram Stories, and intense build up, YouTube stars Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau brought their closest friends, families, hundreds of strangers, thousands of online viewers, and a full MTV camera crew to Las Vegas on Sunday to watch the two controversial creators “get married.” The result is a troubling but inevitable forecast of what’s next for YouTube’s biggest personalities and the platform as a whole.

Their wedding was arguably the influencer event of the year, but set against the backdrop that it was all orchestrated for Mongeau’s MTV series, Tana Turns 21.

Even Logan Paul, Jake’s older brother and fellow YouTuber, doesn’t believe it’s actually real.

None of that matters to the more than 66,000 people who spent $50 on a live stream of the ceremony like it was a pay-per-view boxing match, but everything leading up to the big moment was a departure from what made YouTube work in the first place.

In 2019, authenticity has been replaced with pageantry, and relationships with viewers have been manipulated into making the audience care about something produced blatantly to turn a profit.

Paul and Mongeau’s entire relationship has become the epitome of every reality show.

A former Yahoo software engineer has pleaded guilty to hacking 6,000 user accounts in a hunt for sexual images.

Following an FBI investigation, Reyes Daniel Ruiz, 34, also admitted to hacking the iCloud, Facebook, Dropbox and Gmail accounts of his victims, primarily young female colleagues and friends.

Ruiz worked at Yahoo for more than 10 years and left the company in 2018, according to CNET sister site ZDNet.

His roles reportedly included a position as a reliability engineer for the company's Yahoo Mail service.

During his time at Yahoo, he copied sexually explicit photos and videos without permission and stored the data at his home, the Department of Justice said in a Monday statement.

He faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison for one count of computer intrusion and a fine of $250,000, plus restitution.

A few weeks before that, another packet routing blunder, this time pushed by China Telecom, lasted two hours, caused significant disruption in Europe and prompted some to wonder whether Beijing's spies were abusing the internet's trust-based structure to carry out surveillance.

In both cases, internet engineers were shocked at how long it took to fix traffic routing errors that normally only last minutes or even seconds.

Cloudflare's director of network engineering Jerome Fleury has revealed that the routing for a big block of IP addresses was wrongly announced for an ENTIRE WEEK and, just as amazingly, the company that caused it didn't notice until the major blunder was pointed out by another engineer at Cloudflare.

Because, folks, it was on IPv6.

"So Airtel AS9498 announced the entire IPv6 block 2400::/12 for a week and no-one notices until Tom Strickx finds out and they confirm it was a typo of /127," Fleury tweeted over the weekend, complete with graphic showing the massive routing error.

That /12 represents 83 decillion IP addresses, or four quadrillion /64 networks.
