How advertisers can stay afloat after net neutrality is gone

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

While it’s still not clear what internet service providers will do after Ajit Pai’s FCC voted to repeal net neutrality rules, it’s certain that many online business models will be facing major upheavals. Of special concern is online marketing, which is largely dependent on fast and reliable access to content publishers and consumers, a requirement that was fairly met under net neutrality rules. Online advertisers will now be at the mercy of internet service providers (ISPs), who can decide who gets (or doesn’t get) to see their ads. Here’s what you need to know about the potential changes that can…

Best FPS Games for iPhone and iPad

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Ready, aim, fire! These great FPS games will keep your iPhone and Pad smoking!

FPS games are typically high-octane, fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping games that are filled with explosions, acts of violence, and of course, lots of gunfire. They are among the most popular titles when it comes to console and PC gaming, but there are a ton of great FPS games for your iPhone and iPad too; here are some of my favorites!

Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Modern Combat 5: Blackout is a first-person military shooter that provides a console-like gaming experience right on or iPhone or iPad.

Beginning with a mission in Italy, the solo campaign follows Caydan Phoenix as he travels around the world to gun down plenty of soldiers of the World Liberation Army.

You can customize your soldier’s loadout and special abilities, meaning you can adjust each mission to the play style you want to roll. As you increase your rank, you’ll gain access to more weapons, giving you, even more, options to defeat your enemies.

No first-person shooter is complete without a robust multiplayer mode, and Modern Combat 5 offers it in spades with five game modes: Free for all, VIP, Squad Battle, Capture the flag, Zone control, and Cargo.

Into the Dead 2

Into the Dead 2 improves on just about every aspect of the first game, and delivers a solid and exciting gameplay experience.

Instead of being an endless runner where you’re only competing to top your own high score, the game has added a narrative and some progression to the run and gun gameplay. The story is fairly simple: you play as a man named James who gets into a car accident in the middle of the road while trying to get back to his wife, Helen, and his daughter, Maggie. Of course, James is immediately swarmed by zombies forcing him to run and shoot his way to safety. Armed with a handgun, a walkie-talkie, and a strong desire to return home, James starts running through the hordes of zombies. While it may be a pretty simple story, the voice acting is surprisingly well done, and as I have been playing through the story I find myself invested in getting James back to his family.

Gameplay overall hasn’t changed much from the first game, which is more of a blessing than a curse. You’ll automatically run through the wilderness that’s filled with zombies, needing to move left and right to avoid getting eaten alive or tapping on the screen to shoot your equipped weapon.

The addition of a story mode and a more prominent in-game progression scale has given the shoot-em-up zombie runner a breath of fresh air making it a delight to play. The visuals and sound are absolutely outstanding, and the game does an excellent job of really setting a tense and spooky tone.

All in all, Into the Dead 2 is a fantastic experience, and whether you’re a fan of the prequel or new to the game, you should be able to enjoy this one for hours on end.

Pixel Gun 3D

Not all FPS games have to rely on top-of-the-line graphics to be fun! Pixel Gun 3D is a blocky, online multiplayer, free-for-all that has a pretty large community behind it.

Whether you choose to use the on-screen controls or an MFI controller, Pixel 3D Gun feels like a typically console FPS game in a lot of ways. You have a ton of different weapons to choose from and buy, a dozen or so maps you can play, and a few different game modes.

On top of the multiplayer, there is a solo campaign mode that is a great way to get used to the controls and offers a decent amount of fun on its own.

Dead Trigger 2

Despite being an older game on the App Store, Dead Trigger 2 continues to be a solid shooter to have on your iPhone or iPad.

Wherever there are zombies, there are usually guns, and in Dead Trigger 2, there is a lot of both! The graphics are amazing, even in 2017, and the game doesn’t take itself too seriously. Lots of funny quips throughout the story and plenty of over-the-top creatures to kill make Dead Trigger 2 one hell of a ride!

The controls have also been streamlined for touchscreens, and while it may take some getting used to, it provides a very smooth gameplay experience. All you have to do is move the crosshairs over a zombie or another baddie, and if your target is within your weapon’s range, you’ll instantly start firing!

Overkill 3

If you prefer a third-person perspective over a first-person in your shooting games, Overkill 3 is worth a look!

This rail-shooter — meaning you don’t control your movement — is pretty simple to play, as you’re only in control of aiming and shooting your weapon. Before each boss fight, Overkill will prompt you to pick a difficulty level for that boss, meaning the previous bad guys you just took out give you no indication of how tough the big baddie will be.

You’ll choose a loadout before each mission, meaning you can customize which weapons you have and unlock new ones as you progress through the game. To unlock more missions, you’ll need to collect stars, which you do by completing objectives throughout the mission. The more stars you collect, the more missions you’ll be able to do.

What’s your favorite FPS game on iOS?

Updated March 2018: Changed the list to focus solely on FPS games, and added Into the Dead 2 and Pixel Gun 3D to the list.

Tinder’s parent company is suing Bumble for patent infringement

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Match Group, the company that holds a large portfolio of dating services, such as Tinder,, OkCupid, PlentyOfFish, to name a few, and was in talks last year to purchase dating and professional networking service Bumble. According to Recode, Match is still looking to acquire the service, but it’s going about it in an unconventional way: by suing it for patent infringement.

On Friday, Match filed a lawsuit that accuses Bumble of infringing on a pair of patents held by Tinder: one called “Matching Process System and Method,” in which users swipe cards and mutually select one another, as well as “Display Screen or Portion Thereof With a Graphical User Interface of a Mobile Device,” which it describes as an “ornamental aspect” of…

Google Lens Currently Rolling Out to iOS via Google Photos App

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Google has announced that its previously Android-only Google Lens feature is now rolling out to iOS users who have the Google Photos app installed.

First unveiled last year at the Google I/O 2017 conference, Google Lens uses the company’s image recognition and machine learning algorithms to identify the subjects of photos and videos and present additional helpful actions and information to the user.

For example, if you take a picture of a business card, Google Lens will offer to save the phone number or address to one of your contacts. Similarly, taking a photo of a book, landmark, building, painting, plant or animal can throw up an option to view more details about the picture’s subject.

A few things to note: Currently Google Lens only works if your device’s language is set to English, and you’re running the latest version (3.15) of Google Photos. You can check what version you’re running in the app’s settings – tap the cog icon and select “About Google Photos” in the menu. Also note that your Google Lens activity is saved to your Google Account if you have Web & App Activity turned on.

If you still don’t see the Google Lens icon when viewing individual photos or videos, it’s likely the feature hasn’t reached your region yet. Google says the update is being released in batches and all devices should receive it soon.

Google Photos is a free download for iPhone and iPad available on the App Store. [Direct Link]

How to use color-coded calendars on Mac, iPhone and iPad to maintain balance in your life

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

It will surprise no-one to know that I was an early adopter of electronic calendars, starting with a Casio Digital Diary in the early 1990s, followed by a Psion 5mx in 1997. But making the switch from a Filofax to a grayscale PDA did mean giving up one thing I didn’t get back until years later: color-coded calendars.

Many people use color-coding to distinguish work and social events, as well as things like family calendars. But I also use them to help me maintain a balanced life …

‘Evoland 2’ Review: Let’s do the Timewarp Again

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Shiro Games isn’t the type of game company to release tons of games that are broad reaching and cover many genres. This is kind of weird because in order to be proficient at making a game like Evoland 2[$ 6.99], they have the chops to make a LOT of games. Unlike the original Evoland, the sequel fully explores several genres and manages a voice and a character all it’s own. While the first Evoland really never fully pushed past the big names that it pays homage to, Evoland 2 will draw you in and make you forget at times that it is in many ways an almanac of gaming nostalgia. Evoland 2 just recently released on iOS as a port from the PC version, and it is a really great way to play this enchanting game.

The underlying plot of Evoland 2 is that you as the protagonist have been flung through time and must find your way back and of course go on many adventures, defeat foes and make friends along the way. The lionshare of the gameplay is still in the top-down view ala Secret of Mana or Legend of Zelda. Dungeons, Bosses, Puzzles and a slew of unique challenges all lay in wait to thwart your attempts to save the past present and future. What sets the Evoland franchise apart is the fact that you won’t be playing just one genre of game or graphics engine. Your view and interface with the game will be changing from locale to locale, and while you aren’t necessarily getting thrust into a new situation each moment like a Wario Ware type of situation, you will need to be capable of adapting to new controls and gameplay as you progress further and further into the game.

The entire gimmick of Evoland is that as you progress in the game, the generational technology of the game shifts. So at one point you will be looking at a screen that might remind you of an original NES or gameboy game, other times you might be looking at a PS2 quality 3D rendered environment. That’s basically the breadth of what you will experience as far as video game eras is concerned. Anything within those boundaries you will find well represented in game. You will also find that the game will sometimes be well within standard RPG gameplay limits, but frequently shifts to completely different modes including a card battle system, puzzle solving, bullet hell shooting and much much more.

There is a really solid mix of meaningful dialogue and comedic interludes that keep the pace uplifting yet still plausible. Whether the characters are hashing out philosophical differences or dropping 4th wall breaking one liners, you start to see that the game wants to be thoughtful and playful and it works very well. For a game that has so many evolutions, mode changes and overall mutations, it seems like an easy situation to get whiplash in, but that is not really the case. In the first game you would just find a chest, open a chest, and get a new coat of paint on the game without much reason but the sequel spends time explaining things and showing a lot of consideration for why things are happening and why things are changing. Rather than just offering a reflection of old games we love, Evoland 2 tells it’s own story and does it just like those old games did. In spite of graphical constraints and in spite of platform limitations, the story can still be told that is poignant and relatable.

The overall gameplay of Evoland 2 is solid. There is not a ton of innovation, but the platforming/action RPG core is very good, if not a little fiddly with the touch controls. I have gone back and forth between using a mfi controller and the touch interface and a controller does bring a lot of ease to otherwise very difficult situations. There were a number of bosses that were incredibly difficult with touch control but I never felt fully blocked or unable to progress without the controller, it is just a more difficult path. I won’t go into detail on each of the side-genres or side-games that this game employs but most of them are a hit, with the notable exception of the card game being a bit of a downer. Some of the references are also a bit hamfisted, like in the Professor Layton style puzzle section. Ok, so a lot of the references are hamfisted, but that’s part of the charm of this game! Also, you should be aware that there are a lot of times you will need to learn a new system in order to move forward and as long as you are like me and really enjoy the variety, it should not cause a problem.

The original Evoland has been estimated around a 4 hour play time. Evoland 2 dwarfs this at a big-boy-RPG 20 hours of estimated play time. I think the first game was a sort of test bed and the sequel really shines as a result. Whether you look at dialogue and story line, or implementation of mechanics, or just sheer volume of gameplay, Evoland 2 is not just a huge improvement on the original but also an amazing way to extend your experiences you may have had with those old school games that it emulates. Evoland 2 pulls off something very difficult to do, it keeps it’s own unique feel and functions as a greatest hits anthology. Go get it if you haven’t already!
