Today’s Pokemon GO update includes a LEGENDARY POKEMON RAID EGG – as you can see at the head of this article.What we’ll see here is a number of new ways in which the game operates, starting with the big Gym Overhaul.Gameplay from the updated APK file show how this update is more than just a software change-up, it’s a Pokemon GO event unto itself.Starting yesterday, the message “Gyms are under construction” began to appear in the games of thousands of players.By now, the whole world’s Pokemon Gym collection is set to zero.Users can not currently cash in their Gym Defender bonuses and the planet is left without battles.

Enligt en rapport från Sentor baserad på en enkät utförd av Ipsos svarar 65 procent av respondenter att de är oroliga att drabbas av hack eller andra attacker.Det är något högre än förra året då 62 procent svarade så, men en dramatisk ökning mot 2015 då 45 procent uppgav att de var oroliga.Hela fyra av tio svarade att de har utsatts för någon typ av attack, men det framgår inte hur många som faktiskt drabbades.Den våg av utpressningsprogram som har pågått de senaste åren och blivit allt intensivare kan ha påverkat folks rädsla, då skadan de åsamkar är så stor och omedelbar jämfört med till exempel en hackad dator som har använts i ett botnät.

Many marketers aspire to work for an iconic global brand like Coca-Cola, but in 2014, Rachel Holbrook left the beverage giant to work somewhere very different: a rapidly growing startup called Airbnb.Since then, Holbrook has led the lodging service’s content team, including everything from traditional production crews to creative talents who helped define the brand’s popular aesthetic.Holbrook, recently honored in Adweek’s 2017 Creative 100 for her mastery of branded content, joined our podcast for a quick discussion of brand values, the insanity of producing 500 content pieces in two months and why the company is so focused on finding diverse talent at the creative industry’s largest festival.

During the chaos that defines E3, it is easy to get lost in the demos, trailers, and hype of the multitude of big titles coming down the pipe.It is usually not until E3 is well over that we have time to sit down and process what we saw.One question that inevitably comes up after E3 is, how many games were confirmed for each platform?With the rise in popularity of console gaming, we have seen a sharp increase in the number of titles coming out on consoles, even surpassing PC titles in the past few years.Console exclusive titles have ended up edging out the PC in past E3s.For example, at E3 2016, PlayStation had 32 exclusive titles confirmed, Xbox had eight, and PC had only three games that were available exclusively.

Nintendo revealed a number of new mechanics for its Super Mario Odyssey platformer for Switch (read our preview) at the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show last week in Los Angeles, and one of the biggest changes that we experienced while playing it at E3 is that Mario can now play dress-up.The publisher has shown Mario running around in different outfits in a handful of Odyssey trailers and screenshots since announcing the game in October.The plumber can ditch his default overalls in favor of a tuxedo, an Al Capone-style pinstripe suit, his construction outfit from Super Mario Maker, and more.Fans have since pieced together that many of these outfits are from previous Nintendo spinoffs like NES Golf or Super Mario Land.But Mario donning a sombrero and poncho isn’t just a reference or a fashion statement (or a stereotype), it also has ramifications for how you can explore Odyssey’s wacky worlds.In the clip above, you can see me try on Mario’s safari-style “Explorer Outfit.” The description suggests how that could help you in certain stages: “Clothing that keeps you comfortable in the deepest heart of the wilderness.” I also find and put on the aforementioned “Black Suit.”

"Se niin sanottu viimeinen kilometri on verkkokaupassa kaikkein tärkein ja vaikein asia ratkaista", sanoo Keskon pääjohtaja Mikko Helander.Kesko uskoo vahvasti siihen, että se voi kasvaa aiempaa suuremmaksi päivittäistavarakauppiaaksi panostamalla ruuan verkkokauppaan.Pilottiversio on kaikessa hiljaisuudessa otettu käyttöön Espoon Isossa Omenassa ja Helsingin Itäkeskuksen Citymarketissa."Suurin muutos aikaisempaan on se, että pyrimme tarjoamaan ison ruokakaupan laajan valikoiman verkkokauppa-asiakkaille", sanoo Keskon pääjohtaja Mikko Helander.Hän arvioi, että verkkokaupan valikoimassa voi olla hyvinkin yli 20 000 tuotetta eli lähes saman verran kuin suuressa citymarketissa.Haasteellinen kohta liittyy siihen kuinka asiakkaan tilaama ruokakassi toimitetaan perille kotiin.

Developers are finally shipping their long-awaited gamesVideo games, no matter the size, take time to make, more than the average player probably realizes.The third game in Microsoft’s over-the-top GTA style franchise has suffered delays ever since, which may have been caused likely by its ambitious “everything you see is destructible” game mode.Moon Studios announced Ori and the Will of the Wisps, a sequel to its dazzling 2015 game Ori and the Blind Forest.New IPs often hark back to existing franchises in terms of mechanics, style, and even setting.When Code Vein was first teased by Bandai Namco, we instantly likened it to the Dark Souls series, which the studio publishes.

The rise of social media has thrust personal branding into the mainstream.And while many celebrities have been born on consumer platforms like Instagram or YouTube, and others, like, say, President Trump, thrive on Twitter, in the advertising business, the place to shout "I'm a thought leader" is LinkedIn.Once a place to professionally network, LinkedIn has evolved into a vehicle for marketing execs to weigh in on the hottest industry topics du jour in blog posts, self-promote and even dish out advice on entrepreneurship in their status updates.The gold rush for personal fame on LinkedIn can, in part, be attributed to LinkedIn’s own evolution as a platform."One of the reasons I like LinkedIn is because it is a broader audience, I’m interested in business in general, not necessarily just advertising," Sable told Business Insider."I’m always learning from people’s responses–it’s interesting to read comments and see what people respond to."

Wisconsin appears to be hankering for a hunk of the gadget-making industry.The cheese state is in talks with Apple supplier Foxconn to open a plant in Wisconsin, the Associate Press reported Wednesday, citing an unnamed source with direct knowledge of the negotiations.The plant would be the first in the US for Foxconn, a Taiwanese company that assembles iPhones and other electronics.Michigan is also pursuing the plant, which would employ thousands, the AP reported.Foxconn told The Wall Street Journal late last year that it was considering a stateside plant.President Donald Trump may have alluded to the negotiations during a visit to Milwaukee Tuesday when he reportedly said Gov.

OpenAI and Google DeepMind tackle security concerns with development of new machine learning algorithm.The two companies have produced an algorithm that learns from human feedback, providing a more reliable machine learning process.The move comes after concerns over the rise of AI highlighted by tech luminaries such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and even Stephen Hawking weighing in on the need for securer machine learning platforms.OpenAI and DeepMind have sought to develop a process that will help to make AI safer to use and more easily trainable.They have achieved this through ‘reinforcement learning’, strengthening the intelligence of the algorithm through several stages of human engagement.The process involves the algorithm completing tasks within a particular environment whilst participants provide responses which are fed back to the machine.

Of all the social networks, Instagram stands out as the place to show off your most idealized life.But look more closely, and you'll spot a dissonance present in those pristine posts when you scrutinize them—that low-fat granola bar looks too sumptuous, those expensive designer sunglasses worn too coolly (and yet still front-and-center!)Now, Instagram is working to better distinguish a good old-fashioned filtered ’gram from a glossy sponsorship with a new "branded content tool" it’s unveiling today.“A healthy community should be open and consistent about paid partnerships,” the company said in a blog post.Otherwise, you end up with the embarrassing debacle of the Fyre Festival, in which 400 Instagram influencers hyped up the purported luxury music and beach-glamping extravaganza only to subject attendees on the day of the event to dirt fields, soggy tents, and sad folding chairs.Clarifying who is getting paid to post will help Instagram itself from losing its gloss when influencers go bad.

Ten years ago, Jeffrey Adams, a mathematician at the University of Maryland, made an appearance in The New York Times that prompted a series of angry emails.His correspondents all wanted to know one thing: “Who the hell do you think you are?”Who Adams is is the leader of a cutting-edge mathematical research project called the Atlas of Lie Groups and Representations.Lie groups are used to map the inner machinery of multidimensional symmetrical objects, and they’re important because symmetry underpins far-flung mathematical concepts, from a third-grade number line to many-dimensional string theory.You’d think that cracking the code on these fundamental mathematical ideas would be a big deal.The success of the atlas project poses a tough math problem of a different kind: What should math’s relationship be with the broader, non-expert public?

It looks like the Galaxy Note 8 will hit the market before the iPhone 8, a new report claims, reaffirming what was already said in recent rumors.Even though some of the earlier Galaxy Note 8 leaks said that Samsung might delay the phone’s launch, more and more reports now paint a different picture.Samsung may stick to its usual Galaxy Note 8 schedule, and unveil the phone at IFA 2017, the popular German tech show held in Berlin every year in early September.After all, it was at IFA that Samsung introduced to the world the first Galaxy Note smartphone a few years ago, effectively becoming the first company to do phablets right.Earlier this year, IFA Executive Director Jens Heithhecker told reporters that he’d like to see the Galaxy Note 8 return to the show.According to SamMobile’s sources, Samsung is considering IFA 2017 as a potential launch venue for the Galaxy Note 8, although the company may share some details sooner than that.
