The original Pako – Car Chase Simulator [$ 1.99 / Free] began life on mobile back in the summer of 2014 as a super fun and stylish endless survival driving game, and it only grew and grew from there with a slew of updates in the years that followed. Eventually it found its way to desktop where it was also quite well-received. For the sequel, developer Tree Men Games went in the opposite direction, creating a game for desktop and console first and then porting it to mobile in January of this year. To get the game working well on mobile, the visuals were toned down and some of the content from the console and PC version was left out, but that didn’t stop Pako 2 [$ 1.99] from being one of the most fun releases of 2018 so far. Now Tree Men are beginning to flesh out the mobile version to bring it more on par with its older siblings, and today a new Pako 2 update has added a new level and three new vehicles into the game.

The new level is called Sunny Coast, and it unsurprisingly features plenty of sunshine and coastal decor including the beach and the ocean. The three new vehicles are the weird futuristic sports car the Leguan, military-style truck Wolf, and a modified police-style vehicle called the Fox. As great as this new update is for existing owners on iOS, it’s even better for Android players as alongside this new iOS update Pako 2 has also launched on the Google Play Store. I loved Pako 2 so much I picked it for the Game of the Week when it released in January, and it’s been in constant play rotation on my iPhone ever since. If you enjoy games with tons of action and frantic moments, as well as premium games with no IAP, I highly suggest checking out Pako 2, now on both iOS and Android and with tons of cool new content.

EU residents now have access to the same online content anywhere in the EU as they do back home, but that’s not necessarily a good thing

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

Anyone who’s traveled to another country knows how frustrating it is to be geoblocked from streaming content that’s available back at home. Due to licensing restrictions, content providers like Netflix aren’t always able to provide the same viewing experience across different countries, and so some countries get access to a worse content library than others. Hypothetically, this shouldn’t happen within the European Common Market (to which the European Union belongs), which seeks to “guarantee the free movement of goods, capital, services, and labour,” but in reality there’s always some gap between theory and practice.

AI and privacy predictably dominated conversations at this year’s Adobe Summit, as both speakers and attendees tackled the elephant in the room. Thankfully, the “Summit Sneaks” sessions offered a little respite. Hosted by Leslie Jones of “Saturday Night Live,” experience creators had an opportunity to stand on stage in front of 13,000 attendees who will vote online for their favorite project. The increasingly popular sessions are primarily an opportunity for engineers to get out of the lab and showcase what they’ve been working on. The light-hearted and entertaining look into future technology feels like the perfect way to end the…

FCP X Tips 001: How to create custom zoom area effects for 4K content [Video]

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

One of the advantages of shooting video in 4K is that it allows you to zoom and pan within a 1080p project frame while still maintaining 1080p video quality. It’s great for doing faux-panning, or zooming in Final Cut Pro X to highlight specific parts of the frame without reducing video quality. As you might imagine, using such a technique is particularly beneficial for hands-on video tutorials when referencing specific items in frame.

I recently created a custom set of areas to make it quicker to zoom with greater consistency throughout a project. If you’re someone who shoots video in 4K, but delivers in a lesser resolution, then you might considering creating your own custom set of areas as well. Watch our hands-on tutorial inside for the details. more…

Apple may surpass $1B content budget, new shows could debut in March 2019

Despite underwhelming performance thus far, Apple isn’t giving up on its original programming ambitions. According to a report from The New York Times, the tech giant’s entertainment plans are slowly but surely taking shape. Apple could reportedly push out a number of original series and films any time between March 2019 and summer of that same year.

The process may seem slow, but Apple isn’t wasting time building out its projects. Since last fall, the company signed 12 content deals. Nine of those are “straight-to-series” shows, meaning they skip the traditional pilot-episode stage and will immediately become full series. New hires and former Sony execs Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg lead Apple Worldwide Video and are expanding the staff to about 40 people. They’ve also ordered separations within the entertainment division devoted to adult dramas, children’s shows, and Latin American and European programming.

Only broad details about Apple’s overall entertainment strategy have been revealed. According to the New York Times report, producers and executives that have met with Apple claim the company is partial to programming that’s in line with “its bright, optimistic brand identity,” signaling that we probably won’t see any dark, Game of Thrones-esque shows coming from the iPhone maker.

Snap introduces Explore to make it easier to find content on its Snap Map

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

Snapchat’s Snap Map, the heatmap overview of Snaps shared around the world, was introduced last summer, letting users get a better sense of where their friends were sharing from. However, unless you zoomed out and looked around for Snaps and Stories outside your area, you would likely miss out on content that hadn’t been shared nearby. Today, Snap has introduced a feature called ‘Explore’ that will bring more prominence to content on the Snap Map, regardless of where it’s shared from.

Mark Zuckerberg says he’s ‘fundamentally uncomfortable’ making content decisions for Facebook

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

“I feel fundamentally uncomfortable sitting here in California in an office making content policy decisions for people around the world.”

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t want to be the content police. But he might not have a choice.

For years, Facebook has argued that it’s a platform for all ideas. Outside of obvious ethical violations — child pornography or terrorist propaganda, for example — it doesn’t want to take responsibility for determining what’s appropriate or inappropriate, or even what’s fact or fiction.

But as CEO of the world’s largest social network — a service he created — many believe that responsibility does fall to Zuckerberg. Who else should be making Facebook’s rules?

In an interview with Recode on Wednesday to discuss the company’s recent privacy scandal, Zuckerberg showed some frustration with the idea that as Facebook’s CEO, many expect him to create and enforce values for the service that are applicable to all of Facebook’s two billion users.

Zuckerberg tried to explain why it’s a tough challenge by pointing out that it can be hard to walk the line between freedom of speech and hate speech. He mentioned that people don’t always agree on when or if something crosses that line.

“What I would really like to do is find a way to get our policies set in a way that reflects the values of the community, so I am not the one making those decisions,” Zuckerberg said. “I feel fundamentally uncomfortable sitting here in California in an office making content policy decisions for people around the world.”

But then Zuckerberg said something else we haven’t heard before, which is that even though making these kinds of policy decisions make him uncomfortable, he may no longer have a choice.

“Things like, ‘Where’s the line on hate speech?’ I mean, who chose me to be the person that did that?” Zuckerberg continued. “I guess I have to, because we’re here now, but I’d rather not.”

I guess I have to, because we’re here now.

In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, while Facebook still grapples with issues of fake news, filter bubbles and the negative health effects of social media, it seems clear that Zuckerberg is realizing that his “we want to please everyone” approach may not be working as planned.

Zuckerberg clearly isn’t jumping at the idea of telling the world where the line is on hate speech. But his statement also demonstrates that he’s recognized what many have been waiting for the CEO to see for some time: That Facebook needs more consistent and enforceable values, and it should be up to Zuckerberg and the other smart people at Facebook to create them.

This doesn’t mean Zuckerberg is going to sit down tomorrow and write new policy rules for Facebook. But it’s a sign that he’s frustrated that his efforts to please everybody — and avoid any accusations of bias — might not be working the way that he hoped.
