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

Looking for a Qi-enabled charger? The newest wireless solution from mophie really brings the power.

Today, popular tech accessory company mophie launched the latest in its line of Qi-enabled contact chargers. Called the Charge Stream Pad+, the wireless charging solution brings all the great features users love in the already-existing Wireless Charging Base to a whole new level.

Made from fail-safe, temperature-controlling circuitry covered in a 360-degree thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) coating, the Charge Stream Pad+ comes in your choice of matte black or white so it looks fantastic on your desk or nightstand, no matter your decor. The rubberized, non-slip exterior grips and protects your smartphone from scratches and unintended slipping and sliding as it charges, meaning you can just drop your device on the pad and go about your business worry-free. And when you aren’t charging anything, you don’t have to fret about wasting energy — the pad maintains a low standby current when it’s idle.

Functionally, the pad works with all Qi-enabled devices including the iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone X, and the Galaxy S9/S9+ as well as mophie’s Juice Pack cases for earlier iPhones. It also supports fast charging, powering up your tech using its 10W of power — that’s 2.5W more than the original Wireless Charging Base — and will optimize the output for whatever device you use, making sure you get the quickest charge possible. In addition, it charges through most lightweight cases up to 3mm thick, so you’ll never have to mess around with removing your case prior to dropping it on the pad.

Each Charge Stream Pad+ is priced at $ 59.95 and ships with a 1.5m (that’s 4.9ft for us non-metric folks) micro USB cable and a QC 2.0 wall adapter so you can get to charging as soon as you take it out of the box. You can get your own on mophie’s website, or by clicking the Amazon link below.

Mophie Launches New $60 Wireless Charge Stream Pad+ With Fast Charge Functionality

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

Mophie today announced the launch of a new Qi wireless charger for Apple’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, the Mophie Charge Stream Pad+.

Mophie says the Charge Stream Pad+ is its first universal high-speed wireless charging accessory, compatible with the fast charging capabilities of both Apple and Samsung devices.


For Apple’s most recent iPhones, that means the Charge Stream Pad+ supports the faster 7.5W charging introduced back in December. Mophie’s existing wireless charger, the Wireless Charging Base, also supports 7.5W charging.

Smart charging circuitry inside of the Charge Stream Pad+ communicates with an iPhone or other smartphone to determine and deliver the optimal amount of power.


Design wise, the Charge Stream Pad+ looks like your average Qi-based wireless charger, with a circular flat base where you rest your phone. A non-slip rubberized finish makes sure your iPhone stays in place, and it also ships with a wall adapter and USB-A to microUSB cable. It comes in black or white to match any decor.

The Mophie Charge Stream Pad+ is also compatible with all Charge Force Mophie Juice Pack battery cases designed for the iPhone and for Samsung smartphones, such as the Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 7, which enables wireless charging.


The Charge Stream Pad+ can be purchased from the Mophie website for $59.95.

Pokémon Go and Mew: How to finish Mythical Discovery Field Research fast!

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

How do you complete the Mythical Discovery Field Research in Pokémon Go and get Mew as fast as possible? Like this!

Mew is the last of Pokémon Go Generation 1 to be released. The potential origin of all Pokémon, it’s fitting Mew’s introducing brings with it an all-new game mechanic as well: Field Research. In specific, Professor Willow is back with a Mythical Discovery quest that, if you complete all the goals, will get you to Mew, and get Mew to your PokéDex.

What is Field Research?

Field Research is a new game mechanic in Pokémon Go that rewards you for demonstrating core skills like making Great Shots, winning Gym battles or Raids, catching Pokémon, walking your Buddy, hatching Eggs, and more. Some are easy, like transferring 5 Pokémon. Others are hard, like catching Ditto or evolving a Gyarados.

From Pokémon Go:

A series of mysterious happenings is occurring all over the world, and Professor Willow is seeking Trainers to help him find out if this is connected to the Mythical Pokémon Mew. These research tasks will become available to Trainers around the world later this week!

There are two different types of research you can contribute to: Field Research and Special Research. Gather Field Research tasks by spinning nearby PokéStops, which will give you objectives that include discovering and catching certain Pokémon or engaging with battles, among other things. Special Research may be requested by Professor Willow himself, and will take you on a journey to make important discoveries!

Both types of research offer great rewards, including a variety of useful items and even encounters with certain Pokémon! You can complete as many research tasks as you want every day, leading to a full day of adventures. These tasks also have different levels of difficulty, so the more challenging a research task is, the greater the reward waiting for you.

You can earn one Stamp per day by completing at least one Field Research task, and when you obtain seven stamps, you can achieve a Research Breakthrough to receive even greater rewards! You may even have an encounter with a Legendary Pokémon!

Research tasks will provide interesting challenges that will help you get better at discovering, battling, and catching Pokémon! We’re excited to see your contributions to the exciting field of Pokémon research, and we can’t wait to hear about the adventures you have along the way! Let’s get moving!

You can find out more about how the team developed Field Research at Pokémon Go as well.

So, um, who’s Mew?

Mew is a Mythical Pokémon from Generation 1, sometimes suspected of being the origin of all Pokémon.

Here’s what the official Pokémon site has to say:

Mew is said to possess the genetic composition of all Pokémon. It is capable of making itself invisible at will, so it entirely avoids notice even if it approaches people.

And, from Bulbapedia:

Mew is a pink, bipedal Pokémon with mammalian features. Its snout is short and wide, and it has triangular ears and large, blue eyes. It has short arms with three-fingered paws, large hind legs and feet with oval markings on the soles, and a long, thin tail ending in an ovoid tip. Its fur is so fine and thin, it can only be seen under a microscope. Mew is said to have the DNA of every single Pokémon contained within its body, and as such is able to learn any attack.

As demonstrated by its behavior in the first and eighth Pokémon movies, it shows signs of intelligence, curiosity, playfulness, and even selflessness. Mew is incredibly adaptable, able to travel freely in the air or underwater. As seen in Pokémon Snap, it can create a green/yellow/pink orb of energy around itself for protection.

How do you catch Mew in Pokémon Go?

Thanks to the new Field Research mechanic in Pokémon Go, you can catch Mew if you complete Professor Wilow’s Mythical Discovery Quest.

What are the stages of Mythical Discovery and how do you finish them fast?

Image via The Silph Road

Mythical Discovery consists of eight sections with three tasks each.

Stage 1: Spin 5 PokéStops, catch 10 Pokémon, Transfer 5 Pokémon

This one is just the basics. Go to a place where you have 5 PokéStops handy, go for a walk, spin, catch, and transfer at least half of your catches.

Stage 2: Walk for 2 Buddy Candies, make 10 Great Throws, Hatch 3 Eggs

Switch your Buddy to one that only requires 1 KM per Candy. Magikarp is your best choice since you’ll need to evolve Gyarados later on — yeah… — and that’ll require 400 Karp (or Rare) Candies.

Then, if you’re not already walking Eggs, throw three 2 KM Eggs into Incubators — or Super Incubators, if you have them handy — and walk for both your Buddy Candies and your Egg hatches.

For Great Throws, your best bet is a Raid, specifically a big Tier 4 or Legendary Tier 5 Raid. Typically, they have large target circles and, if you don’t use Gold Razz, they’ll jump out a lot, giving you lots of chances to get your Great Throws in.

Stage 3: Reach Level 15, Battle 2x in a Gym, Battle 2x in Raids

If you’ve already reached Level 15, you’ll get auto-completed for that task. If you haven’t, crack some Lucky Eggs and do as many back-to-back Legendary Raids as you need to to level up. At 20,000 XP a pop, you’ll get there in no time.

For the Gym battles, just roll up on any Gym not controlled by your team and battle twice. Pick a big Dragonite or Tyranitar, or a Machamp if it’s filled with Blissey, Snorlax, Chansey, and Slaking. You don’t have to win, just battle. But Gyms are typically so weak right now it would be hard for you not to win two quick battles in a row.

Raids are the same. You don’t have to win, just battle. So, you can either do two quick Tier 1 or Tier 2 Raids or, if you don’t want to or can’t travel, you can do the same Raid twice. Just lose the first time, then win or lose the second.

Stage 4: Earn a Silver Kanto medal, evolve 20 Pokémon, walk for 5 Buddy Candies

If you’ve already got a silver Kanto medal, you’ll auto-complete this task as well. If you haven’t, you’ll need to make sure you have at least 50 different Generation 1 Pokémon to your PokéDex. The Silph Road Atlas can help you track them down.

You may get auto-completed for the evolutions as well — I was, for some strange reason — but if not, evolve away. If you lack the Pokémon and the Candy, start grinding. Pidgey, Caterpie, Weedle, Wurmple, and Whimsur are your best bets since they require only 12 Candy to evolve. With Pinap Berry, that’s only a couple catches each.

For the 5 Buddy Candies, just keep walking your 1 KM Buddy.

Stage 5: Catch Ditto, make 20 Great Throws, catch 10 Ghost Pokémon

Ditto is a Pokémon that disguises itself as other Pokémon. Currently, that includes:

  1. Pidgy
  2. Ratatta
  3. Zubat
  4. Ghastly
  5. Sentra
  6. Yanma
  7. Hoothoot
  8. Zigzagoon
  9. Taillow
  10. Whismur
  11. Gulpin

Unfortunately, there’s no way of knowing in advance which of those Pokémon might be a Ditto in disguise until after you catch it. So, you’ve got to grind: Catch every one of those Pokémon you can. Go to high-density spawn points, like parking lots at shopping centers and malls, and catch, catch, catch. It’s entirely random, so all you can do is keep catching until you get a Ditto.

Fortunately, that’ll give you a lot of opportunities to get your 20 Great Throws in! If by some chance you get Ditto before you get your throws, though, use the same strategy as before. Hit up the big Raids with the big Bosses and go for the easy Greats.

To get the Ghost-types, go out at night when they spawn more frequently, and look for Ghastly and Misdreavus nests near you in the Silph Road Atlas.

Stage 6: Reach Level 25, battle 10x Raids, evolve a Gyarados

If you’ve already reached Level 25, you’ll also get auto-completed for that task. If you haven’t, once again, crack some Lucky Eggs and do as many back-to-back Legendary Raids as you need to to level up. 20,000 XP a pop, what can I say?

For the 10x Raids, you can either get a group of friends together and get a Raid Train going, or you can find a couple Tier 4 or Tier 5 Raids you can’t possibly beat on your own and just lose them over and over again until you get to 10. It’s time-consuming but it’s not difficult.

Evolving a Gyarados, if you don’t have the Candy — now that’s difficult. Sadly, previous evolutions don’t count. You have to evovle a new one. So if you just evolved a Shiny, or were waiting to evolve a Shiny, tough luck. You’ll need to either track down enough Magikarp, Pinap Berry them, and get to 400 Candy, or Raid your heart out until you get enough Rare Candy to make up the difference, or both.

Yeah, this one can be a real wall.

Stage 7: Catch 50 Pokémon using a Berry, make 1 Excellent Curve Throw, earn a Gold Kanto medal

Catching the 50 Pokémon with a Berry is just grunt work. Go someplace with a ton of spawn points, like a parking lot at a shopping center or mall and start catching. Just Berry everything as you go. If you can find a place with PokéStops to refill your Berries as you go, so much the better. For weak Pokémon, use Nanab. They may as well be good for something. For the toughest of the tough, throw as many Golden Razz as you have to spare.

Getting at least 1 Excellent Curve Throw out of 50 catches shouldn’t be hard. Just make a point of going for it until you get it.

Again, if you’ve already have a Gold Kanto medal, you’ll auto-complete this task and be on your way. If you haven’t, you’ll need to make sure you have at least 100 different Generation 1 Pokémon to your PokéDex. And again, the Silph Road Atlas can help you track them down.

Stage 8: Catch Mew

If you’ve made it all the way here, enjoy! Mew is just a Poké Ball throw away!

Do you get rewards for completing each task and stage as well? What are they?

You do! You get XP awards for each task and item rewards for each stage. And that includes items you can typically only get from Raids!

  1. 500 XP x 3, 10x Great Balls, 1x Incubator, 3x Lures
  2. 1000 XP x 3, 20x Great Balls, 2000 Stardust, 3x Incense
  3. 1500 XP x3, 1x Fast TM, 1x Charge TM, 2x Star Pieces
  4. 2000 XP x 3, 20x Great Balls, 4000 Stardust, 3x Lures
  5. 2500 XP x3, 1x Raid Pass, 1x Lucky Egg, 15x Revives
  6. 3000 XP x 3, 5x. Rare Candy, 4000 Stardust, 3x Incense
  7. 3500 XP x3, 5x Ultra Balls, 8000 Stardust
  8. 4000 XP, 20x Mew Candy, 10,000 Stardust, 1x Super Incubator

You only get the rewards when you tap on them. So, if you want to crack a Lucky Egg or drop a Starpiece before you collect your XP or Stardust, that’s your opportunity to double — or 1.5x — dip.

What’s the best moveset for Mew?

Mew can learn Fast and Charge Moves of all types, making picking the best moveset equal parts math and feels. Mew won’t be topping any attacker or defenders charts, so go for what the numbers say is best or your personal favorites.

Since, given the variety, it will take a ton of TMs to get what you want anyway, and it won’t make a huge difference given Mew’s stats, you can simply keep what you get. If you really want to try your luck in the TM lottery, go for something that works well against whatever you typically fight the most, and have fun with it.

We’ve Seen What Bots Do to Democracy. Are We Adapting Fast Enough?

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

During the 2016 U.S. election, an estimated one in every five tweets about the election were from bots. They were also promoting far-right candidates in France and Germany in 2017, and now, are spreading false information in Ireland ahead of a contentious referendum on abortion. This keeps happening. Why?

Or rather: Why isn’t anything being done to prevent bots from interfering with voting?

Governments and media platforms are (ostensibly) trying. Federal and state authorities have begun looking into the proliferation of fake Twitter users, and a Russian bot farm was even indicted by the U.S. special investigation into the election. Twitter has been cracking down on bots by changing its software, and in January removed the over 50,000 Russian-linked accounts that posted automated messages during the election (though we can’t help but feel that’s too little, too late). Facebook did the same with several hundred fake accounts in September 2017.

In Ireland, officials are trying to introduce legislation that would require social media companies verify that anyone taking out a political ad is a real person, and share that information both with regulators and alongside the ad itself. Unfortunately, if it passes, that legislation likely won’t come into affect until after the referendum is over. Yet lawmakers also feel the law will be relevant to prevent foreign influence in future elections.

While government legislation moves frustratingly slow in comparison to the speed of news, it’s that kind of future-forward thinking that we’re going to need if we want to get our bot problem under control. Government action could be the only way to get social media platforms to implement broader countermeasures; as seen in the case of upcoming EU privacy laws, it’s often too difficult for platforms to cherry pick in which countries their settings apply, so legislation in one country can change a platform for everyone.

Facebook already has plans to verify ad buyers in a very old-fashioned way for the upcoming U.S. midterm elections, but those rules seem to only be applied in the U.S.

All of which is to say: Platforms are, understandably, reluctant to come up with rules that would make it harder for people to spend money on their sites, or that limit the growth of new users. Yet those platforms also rely on all of us that trust them to make social media a safe and trustworthy place to waste spend time. We can’t necessarily make online political discourse civil; but with enough pressure from users, we might be able to at least make it human.
