Pokemon GO.

Last weekend we finally got to catch Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon GO. No, it didn’t happen it quite the way the developer had planned, coming as they did on the heels of the technical disaster that was Pokémon GO Fest, where trainers from around the world found themselves totally unable to play the game some had travelled thousands of miles for. But Lugia and Articuno arrived just the same, and players around the world got to catching them. Zapdos and Moltres, mascots from Team Instinct and Team Valor, respectively, will be arriving shortly thereafter. read more

Flash loses final appeal: Adobe sentences its web tech to death

Flash loses final appeal: Adobe sentences its web tech to death

Armor Games’ Crush the Castle is one of thousands of games written for Adobe’s Flash Player, which is being squeezed off the web.

The Flash Player has been there for you all along, inside your browser, making it possible for you to play online games, stream radio station music and watch YouTube videos. But after a two-decade run, Adobe is killing it off.

Countless nails have been hammered in Flash’s coffin in recent years, most notably by Apple’s Steve Jobs and also by Adobe itself. Now, though, there’s a date for the funeral: Dec. 31, 2020.

Flash has been a website workhorse — online gaming site Kongregate has more than 100,000 Flash games — but don’t fret over the demise of the pioneering software. It’s more appropriate to rejoice, since the software today is a security risk and major source of browser crashes. read more

Microsoft will save Microsoft Paint, making it a downloadable app

Microsoft will save Microsoft Paint, making it a downloadable app

Stand down, everyone: Microsoft Paint isn’t going away after all.

Microsoft signaled an about-face in a blog post Monday night by Megan Saunders, a general manager within the Windows Experiences group. Instead of deprecating Paint in Windows 10 (which seemed to many to be the first step toward oblivion), Saunders said Microsoft would release MS Paint in the Windows Store as a free app. “MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free,” Saunders wrote. read more

How Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Moves On From Nathan Drake

With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End capping off the adventures of Nathan Drake and his crew of companions, it was difficult to imagine the series continuing without its leading man. But with the reveal of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy late last year, it’s clear that Naughty Dog isn’t done with the series just yet. During a special hands-on event last week, we played a sizable amount of the upcoming adventure and spoke with game director Kurt Margenau about letting Uncharted’s supporting cast take center stage. read more

Pokemon Go: How To Catch Lugia And Articuno

Pokemon Go: How To Catch Lugia And Articuno

The new Pokemon Go update allows you to catch Legendary Pokemon, Lugia and Articuno. To catch them, you need to participate in each Pokemon’s accompanying Raid.

Below you can find details on what Raids are and what you need to do to find and catch the game’s first two legendary Pokemon.

What is a Raid?

For the uninitiated, Raids are special limited-time encounters where you can team up with friends to simultaneously fight powerful Pokemon at Gyms. Each Raid has its own special Pokemon you fight, which upon defeating it, allows you the opportunity to catch it. Raids are graded from one to five: a level one is a relatively weak Pokemon, a level four is powerful Pokemon, and a level five is a Legendary Pokemon. read more

Can Google continue to dominate advertising?

Can Google continue to dominate advertising?

The biggest worry about Google and Facebook is whether they can stay Google and Facebook. That is, can those two companies continue to dominate advertising.

It won’t be an easy task, especially for the relative elder statesman Google. But it should be feasible for Google to stay Google.
