Frantic Vehicular Survival Game ‘Pako 2’ Gets New Content on iOS and is Now Available on Android

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

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.

AirPort Express gets Air Play 2 support for whole-house audio

Air Play 2 in the first beta of iOS 11.4 lets users add AirPort Express base stations as speakers. Sort of. This could become a relatively inexpensive option for whole-house audio. What makes this move surprising is that Apple hasn’t updated the AirPort Express since 2013. That said, the wireless router is still being sold […]

Google Voice gets Wi-Fi calling beta test

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

Google Voice app icon

Good news, Google Voice users: A useful new feature is coming to your service.

Google is now offering a beta test of Wi-Fi calling for Google Voice. With Wi-Fi calling, you can make calls from any device with a Wi-Fi connection, you can reduce roaming charges, and you can stay in contact even if you’ve got a poort cellular connection.

You can try out the beta version of Wi-Fi calling for Google Voice right now. Just fill out this form, update your Google Voice app, and then you’ll get an email with further instructions.

Wi-Fi calling for Google Voice is currently available on Android and the web, with iOS support coming soon. If you’re calling from your computer, you’ll need to use Chrome for now. Google says that support for Firefox, Safari, and Edge is coming soon.

Here’s a list of the known issues with Google Voice Wi-Fi calling right now:

  • Obihai devices won’t work if you enable calling over Wi-Fi (e.g. Incoming calls won’t ring your Obihai phone if you turn on calling over Wi-Fi and mobile data)
  • You won’t be able to use incoming call options (call recording & call transfer) when you enable calling over Wi-Fi and mobile data
  • On your computer, Wi-Fi calling only work with Chrome. Support for Firefox, Safari and Edge coming soon!
  • Android Bluetooth support:
  1. You won’t be able to use the buttons on your bluetooth device to answer calls or hang up
  2. Unable to use earpiece mode when a bluetooth device is paired
  3. Depending on your Android version, your calls might drop if you try to switch between Bluetooth and speakerphone.

Wi-Fi calling is a very nice addition to Google Voice. As I mentioned before, you can use Wi-Fi calling from more devices, and it means that you don’t need to rely on a cell carrier’s network to stay connected. You just need to find any Wi-Fi hotspot and you’ll be good to go. If you’re a Google Voice user, the addition of Wi-Fi calling seems pretty great.

Do you use Google Voice? If so, are you going to try Wi-Fi calling?

As women in tech gain experience, their pay gap with men gets worse

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

On average, women are offered 4 percent less than men for the same job at the same company.

The pay disparity between women and men is often framed as a difference in experience. But women actually miss out on pay as they gain experience, according to new data from tech job platform Hired.

Within the first two years of working in a tech job, women in the U.S. ask for and receive 98 percent of what their male counterparts make in the same job at the same company, according to the report.

Over time, that disparity grows.

On average, women with seven to 10 years of experience, for example, ask for about 90 cents on the dollar and are offered slightly more — 93 cents for every dollar a man is offered. Women with 13 to 14 years of experience ask for 94 cents for every dollar and receive just 92 cents.

There are a number of reasons for this gap beyond simply asking for less and in turn receiving less. Entry-level jobs usually have more clear-cut salary data, so men and women alike know what a specific position is worth. As job candidates advance in their careers, data on a position’s salary becomes spottier, and raises and promotions are not dealt out equally between men and women.

Exacerbating this is the fact that salary requests tend to be based on current salary. That means that if, say, a woman doesn’t receive the same promotions and raises as her male counterparts, she will ask for less than men in each subsequent position, compounding the salary disparity over time.

Additionally, as women get older, they’re also more likely to have children, which is also linked to lower salaries.

The situation is worse for women of color or those who identify as LGBTQ.

Black and Latina women in tech make 90 cents for every dollar a white man makes. That’s a marked improvement over last year but the gulf is still substantial.

Overall, the study found that, in the U.S., men are offered higher salaries than women for the same position 63 percent of the time. It also found that companies offer women 4 percent less than men for the same role, on average. This is basically the same as last year’s findings.

Salary data reflects base pay only and is drawn from a sample of 420,000 interview requests and job offers among 10,000 participating companies and about 98,000 job candidates. Demographics data is self-reported. Hired job seekers set a preferred salary, and companies have to include compensation information for every interview request.

Apple’s Upcoming Morning Show Drama Gets New Showrunner

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

One of the TV shows Apple has in the works, a “morning show drama” starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, is getting a new showrunner, reports Variety.


The original showrunner and creator, Jay Carson, had planned to work with Apple on the series, but he has departed over creative differences. Kerry Ehrin, known for “Bates Motel,” is instead set to take over and is close to inking a deal with Apple.

Ehrin was the co-creator, executive producer, and showrunner of “Bates Motel.”

Apple has signed a deal for two seasons of the as-of-yet untitled morning show drama, each with 10 episodes. The show, based on the 2013 book “Top of the Morning” by Brian Stelter, takes a look inside the cutthroat world of morning television. Stelter’s book was based on the rivalry between NBC’s “Today” and ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Apple has multiple TV shows in the works, all of which are outlined in the original content section of our Apple TV roundup. Rumors have suggested the first of Apple’s TV shows could debut in 2019.

Adobe Lightroom CC gets new image profiles, detail adjustments, and more

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

Adobe Lightroom CC is one of the most competent mobile photo editors out there, and it’s gained some additional functionality today. The app has been updated to version 3.4, adding new RAW Profiles, Camera Matching Profiles, and Creative Profiles. The update also adds sliders for sharpness control and film grain simulation, among other improvements.

Creative Profiles are something casual users will probably get a lot of mileage out of. They’re a lot like the filters (or “looks,” or whatever your photo editor of choice calls them) you’re probably familiar with, and they’re actually pretty tasteful.
