Did You Get YouTube’s New Sharing/Messaging Feature?

thumbnail

On Monday, YouTube announced its new sharing feature for at least the third time (that’s not an exaggeration), suggesting that it was finally rolling out to everyone. I still didn’t get access until Tim invited me yesterday, but it is readily available now to everyone even if you need a bit of help. We thought we’d just check in to make sure you all knew that this week is the week for it and to be sure you got it. What is the new sharing feature ...

SEGA Classic Ristar Now Available for Android

thumbnail

All the way from 1995, SEGA’s Ristar is now available for Android and iOS devices. While I may have only been 5 years old in ’95, I understand the importance of this character, as it was based off an original idea that would later become Sonic the Hedgehog. Both characters are separate, but essentially share the same DNA. If you aren’t familiar with Ristar, the game is a platformer, quite similar to Sonic. You play as a star with stretchable arms who visits different planets, climbing ...

Disney is Leaving Netflix to Start Its Own Streaming Service

thumbnail

Yesterday, Disney announced that it had acquired a majority ownership of BAMTech, a company that specializes in streaming sports video, because their goal is launch an ESPN-branded video streaming service early next year. That’s not all, though. In addition to the ESPN streaming service, Disney plans to launch its own Disney-branded direct-to-consumer service at some point in 2019. You should care about that because it means they will be leaving Netflix. Disney said that the new streaming service will be the “exclusive home in the US ...

Foursquare’s Swarm Updates to V5.0 to Bring Your Lifelog to Life

thumbnail

Swarm, the social check-in app that was once the fun part of Foursquare and has managed to live on its own successfully, is receiving a big update to version 5.0. This update pushes the idea of lifelogging, since most people use it for just that purpose rather than to be social as they check-in while frolicking around the world to new places. I’m not kidding either, that’s the focus of the latest update. The new update is getting a big UX overhaul that simplifies while also ...

As many of you may know, we tend to share “hot” icon packs that we stumble upon in Google Play. I was browsing through a few this week, finally settling on a free pack anyone can use, called CandyCons. I love candy, it’s free, so why not check it out? Inside, there are over 1,000+, differing variants for select icons (such as Chrome), and 20+ cloud-based wallpapers that look awesome. Speaking real quickly just about wallpapers, I want to send a shoutout to all of the ...

thumbnail

LastPass, one of the most popular password lockers, announced this morning that its personal lineup pricing is changing. I probably don’t need to say this, but that almost always means an increase in what you’ll pay. And yes, an increase is on the way. Going forward, the Premium LastPass tier is jumping up from $12 per year to $24 per year. LastPass also introduced a price to its new Families plan, which will cost $48 per year and offer up to 6 users access to your ...
