Facebook has been in recent talks with several high profile US hospitals in an attempt to glean anonymized patient data for a now-defunct project. The company aimed to collect obscured personal details — including illness and prescription info — in an attempt to match it with user data it collected by the social network. The goal, reportedly, was to help hospitals figure out which patients might need special care or treatment, according to CNBC. The news comes amid growing concerns that the social network isn’t taking the steps needed to secure its users from over-zealous third parties — and often…

Google announced plans in late 2016 to increase its spending on renewable energy. In fact, Google intended to go 100% renewable. Today, Google announced it met the goal last year of matching all of its global energy usage with purchases of renewable energy.
This does not mean Google’s facilities all run on 100% renewable energy. It’s logistically difficult to get enough power from wind or solar in all locations to only use renewables.

Having swung its way onto iOS and Android devices over a year ago, arcade multiplayer title Mini Golf King has returned from the clubhouse with all-new content in tow.
Bluehole PNIX’s free-to-play offering already provided a quirky twist on the popular sport by pitting players against more than 30 trap-filled, bonus-packed courses, and the game’s latest update has added an all-new gameplay mode and an additional power-up to the equation.
Late last month, Polish developer Lichthund and Canadian publisher Noodlecake unleashed the German-themed fury of Lichtspeer [$ 1.99] into the iOS App Store, nearly creating an international incident. We fell in love with the absurdity of Lichtspeer when we first saw a preview of it during GDC last year, and were a bit sad to see that the game was available on pretty much every platform besides iOS before finally launching a month ago. But the multi-platform fun doesn’t end there, as today Lichtspeer has also arrived on Android via the Google Play Store and the iOS version has received a free update which adds in Apple TV support. Yes, Lichtspeer on your Apple TV for free if you already own the iOS version. Do note that the Apple TV version requires the use of an MFi controller, and the iOS version’s MFi support has been improved as of this update just for good measure.
That’s not all, though, folks! For the first time since its pre-order discount offer, Lichtspeer is available at a discount on iOS and is half-off its normal price of $ 3.99 at just $ 1.99. That’s just two little dollars for a whole heap of German stereotypes and spear-throwing fun. In case you’re curious, we enjoyed Lichtspeer quite a bit in our review, though we did note that’s it’s a pretty darn difficult game. Depending on your gaming tastes, that can be a great thing, and I personally love Lichtspeer to pieces and feel that it shines best on the touchscreen as opposed to physical controls. So if you missed it when it first arrived, OR you’re on Android, OR you’re dying to throw some spears on your Apple TV, OR you were just waiting for a bargain, now is a great time to check out Lichtspeer on whichever dang platform you choose.
