‘Teen Titans GO Figure!’ is the Sequel to the Outstanding ‘Teeny Titans’, Coming this Summer

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

There are very few games that I’ve spent as much time on or enjoyed quite as much as Teeny Titans [$ 3.99] from Cartoon Network and Grumpyface Studios. I was absolutely obsessed with Teeny Titans for weeks after it came out, and then once I beat every mission and upgraded every character, I started all over again. The game was THAT fun. In fact, if not for the phenomenal Crashlands [$ 6.99] being released the same year, Teeny Titans was in heavy consideration for our Game of the Year 2016 award. So you can probably imagine the delight that is literally coursing through my veins right now due to Cartoon Network and Grumpyface announcing a Teeny Titans sequel called Teen Titans GO Figure! Get it? Go figure? Because you collect figures in the game! I love it! Check out this awesome trailer.

As you can see, it looks like all of the great parts of Teeny Titans are making a return in the sequel alongside some fun new stuff like the ability to change your figures’ outfits. It’ll also feature a brand new story which is inspired by the upcoming feature film Teen Titans GO! to the Movies which is coming out in July. Fans of the first Teeny Titans will remember that the story and humor in the game was one of its best features, and it looks like we’ll be in store for plenty more of that with Teen Titans GO Figure! I am absurdly excited for Teen Titans GO Figure!, and while it’s slated for a vague summer release once a more specific launch date is revealed we’ll let you know. Until then, feel free to discuss this one in our forums.

Recode Daily: Snapchat’s radical redesign spurred thousands of outraged teen users to online activism

Plus, Amazon lays off hundreds, Blockbuster vs. Netflix: The Podcast, and which Winter Olympics sport is best for you?

You may have noticed that today’s Recode Daily newsletter arrived in your inbox a bit later than usual. That’s because Recode’s East Coast squad of reporters and editors has flown west to join the rest of us today for Code Media in Huntington Beach, Calif. Here’s how to watch today’s interviews, including a rare appearance by Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz, live; you can catch up on who said what on Day One here. We’ll be back to our usual delivery time later this week.

Kylie Jenner and Chrissy Teigen joined more than 700,000 people in signing an online petition calling for Snap to reverse the recent radical redesign of its Snapchat app. Last week, the company split the app into two sections, consolidating friend content on the left side, media content on the right, outraging its massive teenage user base. A fake tweet claiming that Snapchat would revert back to its old design if it got enough retweets received 1.3 million retweets as of Sunday afternoon, and has become the sixth most retweeted tweet of all time. Meanwhile, Snap’s VP of sales, Jeff Lucas, has left the company after joining less than two years ago; he’s the seventh Snap exec to leave since the company’s IPO in February 2017.

Amazon laid off a few hundred employees at its Seattle headquarters yesterday. It’s a rare pullback for the $ 668 billion e-commerce giant, which has more than 500,000 employees. As Amazon reaches into new industries like media, grocery retail and logistics, it is recalibrating its staffing while hiring heavily in fast-growing business units like Alexa and Amazon Web Services.

Facebook has resolved a dispute with Apple that prevented the social network from launching a subscription tool for publishers on iOS devices. During her appearance onstage at Code Media yesterday, Campbell Brown, head of Facebook’s news partnerships, said that a version of the paywall tool, which has already been available on Android phones, will roll out in March to Apple phones. Brown also said that Facebook plans to highlight breaking news in its Watch section, the tab on the Facebook app that houses original video. Watch the interview with Brown and News Feed head Adam Mosseri here. [Peter Kafka / Recode]

A new serial podcast called Business Wars digs into the epic corporate drama, industrial espionage and internal blood feuds that fueled the Blockbuster vs. Netflix battle for supremacy. Blockbuster was eventually forced into Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2010, roughly a decade after Netflix’s launch. Former Marketplace anchor David Brown hosts the first eight episodes.

Fox didn’t overpay for its new NFL rights, says Fox exec Peter Rice.

”You either have the most-watched content on television, or you don’t have it,” Rice said yesterday at Code Media.

YouTube’s CEO would “love to stream the NFL.”

The company has bid for NFL streaming rights two years in a row. It lost both times.

Here’s why YouTube hasn’t banned Logan Paul for good.

The company has a three-strike rule. Paul doesn’t have three strikes, says CEO Susan Wojcicki.

HuffPost editor in chief Lydia Polgreen said she wouldn’t have chosen to cover President Trump as entertainment.

”I would take a different approach, personally, as a journalist.”

The founders of theSkimm and Brit + Co say they don’t need Facebook in order to thrive.

You don’t need Facebook when you have email and Pinterest.

Watchdog app reveals list of absurd teen texting codes


Is this what the kids are doing these days? Teen/parent watchdog app Bark.us released a list of abbreviations and acronyms it has gathered that are popular among teens. No surprise, most of them are about naughty things like sex and drugs. It’s not exactly new — I’ve seen similar versions of the same list floated around for years. Still, I have seen some of them used online, so I take that to mean the rest have probably been typed by teens at some point. Some are obscure, while others are a little too obvious to be practical, even for those…
