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


Edinburgh-based travel search engine Skyscanner has introduced the ability to find and compare train tickets in the UK. The feature is currently available the UK-based users of the iOS app, with the feature due to land on Android shortly. The feature is powered by Trip.com, which is owned by the Chinese travel service Ctrip, which acquired Skyscanner in 2016 for $ 1.7 billion. Tickets are sold without any booking fees (unlike its biggest rival, The Trainline). According to TechCrunch, this feature will also come with 24-hour customer service. There are some limitations, however. Firstly, train journeys are limited to the UK.…

Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One improves immensely on the book

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

Fans tend to either love or hate Ernest Cline’s bestselling 2011 novel Ready Player One. There are legitimate reasons for both reactions. On the love side: it’s a light, airy pop confection, crammed with familiar cultural references, which Cline recontextualizes in surprising ways. On the hate side: the prose can be extremely clumsy, as it is in this paragraph where teenage protagonist Wade Watts describes the virtual car he constructed for himself in the vast online world where he spends most of his waking hours:

The DeLorean came outfitted with a (nonfunctioning) flux capacitor, but I’d made several additions to its equipment and appearance. First, I’d installed an artificially intelligent onboard computer named KITT (purchased in an…

How a small team at Unity made the stunning graphical showcase Book of the Dead

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

Every few years, Unity, the company behind one of the biggest game engines in the world, releases a technical demo that shows off just how cool games can look on the platform. The first two were short films, including a Norse mythology-inspired piece called Blacksmith, and Adam, a sci-fi short about robots escaping from jail that was eventually expanded by District 9 director Neill Blomkamp. Tonight at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, the company showed off its latest graphical showcase, a gorgeous and creepy interactive piece called “Book of the Dead.”

Unity actually teased the demo back in January, but today it provided a more detailed look, delving into the new features that went into its creation. The full version is…

Jakub Rozalski’s Howling at the Moon is a beautiful art book that merges real and fictional worlds

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

Late last year, concept art website ArtStation unveiled its first print book: Martin Deschambault’s Project 77, a neat collection that blends science fiction concept art and storytelling. The site announced its next book earlier this week: Howling at the Moon by Jakub Rozalski, the artist behind the acclaimed board game Scythe.

The book is a beautiful collection of fantastical art that reminds me of the style of Simon Stålenhag’s Tales from the Loop, which depicts an alternate, futuristic Sweden. Rozalski’s art features menacing robots and machines dotting the countryside of his native Poland, but rather than looking at the future, he draws his inspiration from the country’s rich past, using its history, wars, and folklore as the basis…

Gunpowder Moon is a chillingly realistic book about the fight to control the Solar System

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

On September 12th, 1962, President John F. Kennedy spoke at Rice University in Houston, Texas, about the need for America to land on the Moon “before the decade is out.” The space race was never primarily about exploration or science, but rather capturing the highest ground there was in the chilly nuclear conflict with the Soviet Union. In his new novel, Gunpowder Moon, David Pedreira envisions an inhabited Moon and its role in a larger geopolitical fight for planetary dominance.

The Moon has long captured the attention of science fiction writers, either imagining its inhabitants in the midst of a political experiment — as in Robert Heinlein’s The Moon is a Harsh Mistress or John Kessel’s fantastic The Moon and the Other — or as a sort…

Apple first tech company set up for ‘multigenerational success’, book argues, but that may hinge on Siri

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

A new article today from L2 takes a look at an excerpt from the NYT bestseller, The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. Among the takeaways from the chapter, the author shares some interesting ideas on Apple’s success as it has moved from the dominating tech world to becoming an icon in the fashion industry. However, even though Apple could be the first tech company to have a good shot at multigenerational success, it has some serious competition to overcome from Amazon and its Alexa platform.

Developers: We Want to See Your Games at GDC, Book a Meeting With Us!

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

Yesterday we announced all of our GDC plans including a party sponsored by Jam City! If you’re going to be in San Francisco, we’d love it if you came out. The party is going to be at Bin 55 which is the hotel lobby bar of the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. It’s a great space, as the massive lobby area allows for loads of room to mingle without being super cramped. The party kicks off at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, March 21st and runs until last call. (From there, usually there’s a contingent of folks who wander off to Denny’s to keep the party rolling.) Jam City will be giving out a limited number of drink tickets, have a prize wheel, and other fun stuff like GDC themed cocktails. You don’t want to miss it.

TouchArcade tradition is if you’re coming to our party, you should bring stickers to trade with other developers of your game icon. The preferred place to get these printed is Sticker Mule as their 2″ x 2″ rounded corner sticker is about perfect for immediate printing of your icon art. Of course, you don’t need to bring stickers, folks have just mentioned it makes for a fabulous ice breaker! I cannot stress enough how much I enjoy our GDC parties, we don’t do any kind of invite list, and everyone is welcome, so the crowd often skews towards scrappy indies who aren’t able to get on any of the lists of other invite-only parties… Which I absolutely love! That level of inclusivity is what we’re all about. If you make or play mobile games of any kind, you’re welcome!

Anyway, this year we gave TouchArcade Patreon supporters first crack at booking meetings with us, and there’s still plenty of room in the schedule for everyone else! Like every GDC, we’re specifically looking for people to book meetings with us who have new, unreleased games or significant unreleased updates to existing titles. If you’ve got something to show off that you’re comfortable with us recording video of, mash this link, choose a time, and fill out the form to book a meeting with us. We don’t care how early along your upcoming game or update is as long as you don’t care if we share it with our readers.

For everyone else who just wants to meet us, talk about a game that’s already released, or whatever else, just come to our party! We’ll be there!

Again, to recap:

GDC Appointment Information:

-If you have an upcoming game or unreleased update we can shoot video of book an appointment here.

-If you don’t have a unreleased upcoming game or update, come to our party!

GDC Party Information:

-Where: Bin 55

-When: 7:00 PM on March 21st until last call.

-Why: To trade stickers from Sticker Mule and to drink free drinks graciously provided by Jam City (while supplies last)!

Last, but not least, Jared and I will be on Train Jam this year so if you’re also going to be on the train we’d love to hang out! We’ll have loads of time to drink expensive train beers, play Switch, and chat mobile games (or whatever else)!
