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


Facebook today announced it was rolling out an update to its News Feed to combat fake news. While the initial purpose of the update appears to be giving users context for the news stories they read. But the update also has a hidden second purpose: Showing you which of your friends are sharing bogus news stories. The new update, first tested last year, gives users more context for news posts. By tapping on the “i” icon next to the story’s headline, you’ll be shown the source’s Wikipedia article, related articles, and a map showing where the story has been shared…

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


A recently unearthed document from Facebook shows that Donald Trump’s team outperformed Hillary Clinton’s in nearly every meaningful metric on its ad network during the 2016 election. Trump has often bragged of hiring the best people — a claim the White House turnover rate would seem to debunk — but this time, Facebook’s own data scientists agree: Trump did have the superior team. Or, maybe it’s the Cambridge Analytica effect. But that’s a story for a different day. First uncovered by Bloomberg, the paper details a heavy-handed approach to Facebook ads by both candidates. Between June and November 2016, Trump…

Malaysia’s scandal-ridden Prime Minister, Najib Razak, has had it with news he doesn’t like. Facing a hostile election environment after indicating he will dissolve the country’s parliament, he’s successfully urged the government to pass a law making it illegal to publish “fake news.” Offenders could be imprisoned for up to six years. While critics worry laws like this could infringe upon free speech, the Malaysian government offered the following reassurance: it won’t. Furthermore, the Malaysian law is reportedly going to take on the entire globe’s fake news problem. According to Reuters: It covers digital publications and social media and will apply…

Google bans cryptocurrency mining extensions in the Chrome Web Store

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


In an effort to prevent malicious sites from using your computer’s processing power to mine cryptocurrency without your knowledge, Google is blocking all extensions that include mining scripts in the Chrome Web Store. The danger with such scripts is that they can hog your system resources, and cause your computer to slow down and overheat. Plus, they’re easy to bake into browser extensions that may be designed and described as something innocuous and useful to you, like automatically muting tabs with sound. Google says it previously allowed extensions that mined currency, as long as they were designed specifically for the…

A new survey, released last week, suggests a good chunk of gamers are spending time on their favorite hobby at work — meaning several of you reading this article are gaming when you shouldn’t be. The survey, compiled by Limelight Networks, was taken by over 3,000 gamers across six countries: the US, UK, France, Germany, South Korea, and Japan. The questions ranged from “How many hours do you spend playing video games per week?” to “Will you continue to play online games or make purchases from a gaming website that has previously experienced a security breach or been hacked?” Perhaps…

Apple reportedly plans to ditch Intel’s processors entirely by 2020

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


Apple has been developing specialized chips for handling certain functions in its phones and computers for the past couple of years, and it’s now planning to take things up a notch: Bloomberg reports that the company is gearing up to make all its processors in-house by 2020, and ditch its long-time supplier Intel in the bargain. That could be huge for Apple – and maybe not the end of the world for Intel, which has been supplying the Cupertino-based firm with processor tech since 2005. Apple’s business accounts for just 5 percent of Intel’s revenue, so it wouldn’t be a…

Rant: In-app browsers are annoying and mostly useless

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


I have a pet peeve. In the past couple of years, it’s become increasingly common for apps to use built-in browsers rather than directing you to Chrome, Safari, or your browser of choice when you open a link. This is annoying at best, and counterproductive at worst – and it should stop being the default behavior for most apps that do so. Note: This largely applies to both Android and iOS, but since I use Android 99% of the time, that’s the perspective I’m writing from. I do a lot of work on my phone. I research pages, draft articles,…
