iPhone muggers turn to phishing to access the device

If your phone was stolen or got lost somewhere, keep an eye out for any suspicious texts or emails: thieves and muggers could have a high-tech trick up their sleeves. A Brazilian woman who got robbed began receiving phishing attempts not long after the event. Her husband told Krebs on Security that he located the device using Find my iPhone and sent it text messages asking if he could buy it back. After that, he began receiving texts telling him that his iPhone had been found -- all he needed to do was click on a link to retrieve it.

These Girl Scouts are going to build an awesome game!

The Girl Scouts of San Diego want to design and build a game for web and mobile and you can help!

Updated February 25, 2017: Good news! With just 29 hours to go, the Marshmallow Run Kickstarter campaign has surpassed its goal! A huge thank you to those of you who donated to make this project a reality for Girl Scouts in San Diego who are eager to get this game off the ground!

The Girl Scouts of San Diego and Design Code Build have set out to build a game called "Marshmallow Run" for web and mobile. They've launched a Kickstarter project and need your help to make this game a reality!

Your browser does not support the video tag.


The team hopes to raise $25,000 to make this project a reality and with only four days left, they're just under a third of the way there. The Kickstarter Project is an all-or-nothing campaign, so we need to move quickly to make this awesome project a reality! By supporting this project you'll be helping Girl Scouts learn coding skills, graphic design, audio design, video editing, project management — the list goes on and on.

The Girl Scouts, in partnership with the STEAM academy Design Code Build, will start by building the platformer in Scratch and then create versions of the game that'll work on the web, iOS, and Android.

By backing the campaign, you'll be helping the project in a number of ways, including:

  • Buying a set of computers to bring to area troops.
  • Creating and maintaining Apple Developer and Google Play accounts
  • Web hosting for the web version of the game
  • Stipend for project teachers

The STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) field is in desperate need of diversity, and projects like this one help make that a reality. If you can help make this project a success, that'd be swell. I implore you — even if you're unable to help with a donation, consider sharing the project on social media. Spread the word and spread the love (of girl scout cookies and gaming)!

Slayaway Camp: Game Guide

Posted on by Luke Filipowicz.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Stab, slash, and saw your way through Slayaway Camp!

Slayaway Camp is a morbidly funny take on the puzzle genre that tasks you with going on a killing spree, and no one you meet is safe! Unfortunately, at Slayaway Camp it's not quite a free-for-all when it comes to the maiming; there are cops, telephones, bookshelves, and other obstacles that get in the way of your homicidal tendencies.

If you're having trouble getting through the scenes, I'm here to help. I'll give you a breakdown of everything you need to know to get you back to your murdering ways.

Warning: Slayaway Camp is rated 17+ on the App Store, and the content below depicts scenes from the game, which could be disturbing to some readers. Discretion is advised.

How the mechanics work in Slayaway Camp

If you've played any other puzzle games similar to Slayaway Camp — like Red's Kingdom — the basic mechanics are pretty straightforward. Swipe in the direction you want your killer to travel, and they will slide in that direction until something gets in the way.

As you slide around the room, you'll need to dispose of all the people (except cops) in the level before the portal to the next scene appears.

How to kill characters

It's a little too terrifyingly easy to finish off an unsuspecting victim in Slayaway Camp. As you slide around each scene, any person you slide into will be promptly disposed of; of course, if you don't dismember your victims in the right order, you may find yourself rewinding the level a few times until you get it right.

How to scare characters

Sometimes you need your soon-to-be victims to move to a different location before you can turn them into worm food, and you can accomplish this by scaring characters.

If you slide beside a person, they will take the opportunity to run away from you in the opposite direction. Not only can this create a correct path for your killer to complete the scene, but it can also cause the fleeing victim to kill themselves by accident.

Extra kills for cash

At the end of each scene, your murderer will have the opportunity to remove another poor soul from existence by way of a mini-game.

There will be a skull icon that slides along a bar located along the bottom of your screen; tap the screen when the skull is in the red area to complete the gruesome deed and earn in-game cash. You can use this cash to buy other gore packs, which allow you to cause carnage in various funny ways.

Obstacles

There are quite a few obstacles that can help or hinder your quest to maim everyone in sight, and to become a true murder master you'll need to know how they all work!

Cops

Cops are always on the lookout for psycho killers like yourself, so you need to make sure to stay out of their line of sight. If you finish your movement directly in front of a cop, it will be game over for you and your killer.

Cops cannot be scared like other characters in the game, but you can still force them into the afterlife by sliding into them from the sides or the back where they can't see you coming.

Water

Nobody at Sleepaway camp, including rampaging murderers, can swim. You'll want to avoid water at all costs. If you fall into any water, you'll be sleeping with the fishes.

If you scare characters into water, they will also die, so keep that in mind as you are moving about!

Fire

Like any good summer camp, Slayaway Camp has fire pits strewn about just begging to be used as marshmallow toasters; however, Skullface and your other killers use them to roast people.

You can scare campers into the fire pits, but Skullface and his group of killers will also be killed by firepits if you slide into them.

Holes

As you slice and dice your way through victims in Slayaway Camp, you'll come across some Holes that can be helpful or hurtful.

Just like fire and water, these holes will cause anyone who runs over them to end up 6 feet under. Sometimes you'll need to scare characters into these holes — just make sure you don't end up in one yourself.

Bookcases, refrigerators, dressers, and more

Throughout the game, you'll encounter objects that you can push over. You'll interact with bookcases first, but soon you'll notice other items such as refrigerators and dressers, which act the same way.

Hit these objects in the front or back, and they will tip over in that direction, which can squish any characters standing on the other side. You'll also notice that pushing over bookcases (and the other items) will unlock new paths for you to take on occasion.

Telephones

Old school blue rotary phones must have been popular in the 80s because they are everywhere in Slayaway Camp, but they aren't just for show!

Telephones always come in pairs, and each one is a direct line to the other in the level. If you slide into a phone, you'll make a call to the other one, causing the nearest person to answer the phone. This changes the layout of the puzzle and presumably give your killer time to say something creepy like "seven days".

Are you enjoying Slayaway Camp?

The terrible story, the horribly fake gore, all the homages to 80s horror films — are you enjoying Slayaway Camp as much as I am? Let me know in the comments below or hit me up on Twitter

What are the best Mac messenger bags? Here are our top picks!

Updated February, 2017:

Finding the right bag to carry your Mac laptop can be tricky: It has to be the right size, offer right amount of protection, and it has to match your personal taste and sense of style while doing it.

While there are dozens of options out there for beautiful MacBook messenger bags, you want something that's reliable, which is why we put together this list!

If you're in the market for a new Mac messenger bag, here are our current favorites.

Skagen Eric Messenger Bag

Made from a high-quality leather and a soft lining to keep your Mac laptop safe, the Skagen Eric Messenger Bag is a great, classic-looking tote for day-to-day use!

The bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap and a quick-snap magnetic closure, so you won't have to worry about extra buckles or zippers if you're on the go. The Skagen Eric Messenger Bag does have a few additional compartments for your charger and other Apple accessories.

Available in a rich saddle brown or a standard black, you're bound to be stylin' with this epic Mac messenger bag.

See at Amazon

Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag

While the Peak Design Everyday Messenger bag is designed to fit a multitude of tech, by removing the inserts included, you can easily turn it into a reliable messenger bag for your MacBook!

Lightweight, durable, weatherproof, and protective, the Peak is designed to keep your laptop safe while still looking stylish. The expandable shell is made with an ultralight waxed canvas, while the inside is made from a mixed twill interior with waterproof galaxy foam lining the bottom of the bag.

Unfortunately the Peak bag only comes in one color, but gray is a perfect day-to-day shade that goes with almost every outfit.

Timbuk2 Proof Messenger Bag

Convenient and beautifully designed, the Proof Messenger Bag from Timbuk2 designed with a tough, waxed canvas, thick leather trims, and heavy duty zippers.

This weather-resistant messenger bag keeps your Mac laptop protected. The Proof is quite the compartmentalized bag too, with additional space for chargers and Apple accessories.

Not only is the Proof a consistently great choice because of how it's designed, but it also looks super cool. You can pick from modern color combos like whiskey cream, stone, midnight, julep, whiskey, and reserve.

The Messenger Bag

Pad & Quill uses hand-crafted leather, cherry wood paneling, twill waxed canvas, and gives you a 25-year warranty to back up the craftsmanship, so if you're looking for quality, then take a closer look at The Messenger Bag!

The Messenger Bag fits laptops up to 15 inches and sports interior pockets to help keep your power supply, cables, and lots of other stuff secure. Designed with a padded laptop pocket, a sleek and fashionable orange lining that helps you easily find what you need (unlike some dark messenger bags), a newspaper pocket, parachute-grade nylon stitches, and so, so much more, the Pad & Quill Messenger bag has you covered.

Heritage Commuter Bag

The Heritage Commuter is made from soft tumbled leather, with an internal compartment big enough for a 15-inch MacBook Pro, plus a pocket big enough for a full-sized iPad, and room for other gadgets and hardware you need.

The front pocket sports a zipper closure and places for pens, paper, and more; the rear pocket sports a magnetic enclosure. Gorgeous heavy duty gunmetal-finished hardware keeps your bag secure and functional but still pleasing to look at.

Available in two finishes: Denim and tan. #Elegantandsophisticated, am I right?

Rough Rider

Waterfield Designs was started by a former bike messenger who was tired of crappy messenger bags, so you bet your bottom dollar that it makes a high-quality product. I've used the Staad Stout backpack for a while and love it, but if I were to switch to a messenger-style bag, I'd be strongly tempted buy the Rough Rider!

This leather bag has four pockets, two of which make an iPad mini and an iPhone easily accessible, which is great if you're traveling with more than just your MacBook. You can adjust the strap to accommodate what's inside, meaning nothing gets cramped and squished.

Available in 13-inch and 15-inch variations with different trim color options, including black, copper, pine, green, flame, and pearl, the Rough Rider isn't just a well-designed back; it's also a great accessory for your day-to-day shenanigans.

Custom Prospect Laptop Messenger Bag

The Custom Prospect Laptop Messenger Bag can be configured with unique colors and patterns for a seemingly endless array of customization options, making it the perfect MacBook accessory for people who like to switch up their style.

With the Custom Prospect Laptop Messenger Bag, you can specify materials for the top, flap, body, boot, and more, from mild to wild! Office business meeting? Tone it down. Headed out on a trip to Vegas? Pop on something fun-kaaaaaay.

This particular bag is available in sizes that fit up to 15-inch MacBook Pros, with a front pocket for keys, sunglasses, aor other small items, a rear zipper that lets you get access to the main pocket without having to open the case, and a dedicated iPad pocket, too.

Dowel Flapover Business Case

Leave it to Samsonite, one of the best-known, most well-designed, and reliable names in luggage to come up with an excellent messenger-style bag for all things business.

Thanks, Samsonite! 👋

In this messenger bag, a padded laptop compartment protects up to a 15-inch MacBook Pro; separate compartments for papers, pens, power cord and accessories, along with a dedicated iPad pocket, too, making it the perfect partner to tote to business meetings.

Premium leather exterior, handle, and shoulder strap; 1200 denier Duraweave fabric on the inside with water-resistant coating, and it's available in black or tan. What's not to love, really?

Empire Builder

It may not look quite as luxe as some of the other bags we've detailed, but Tom Bihn's Empire Builder is so well-engineered it just had to be included! This messenger bag incorporates a side-release buckle and has three spacious organizing pockets, meaning it's not the most fashionable, but pretty gosh-darn functional.

If you're a frequent flyer, you'll appreciate the diagonal top pocket, sized perfectly for a boarding pass. You can order Tom Bihn's optional Brain Cell and clip it inside, giving you extra protection for your MacBook. The Empire Builder is made of 1050 denier ballistic nylon, making it extremely durable, so don't be afraid to toss it around!

Downside: The Empire Builder only comes in one finish: black with steel hardware, but if you're into that look, then go for it for sure!

Barney Rustle Blanket

Aussie bag maker Crumpler designs its gear to be used outdoors, so it's tough, well-put-together, reliable, and versatile. Nowhere is that more apparent than with the Barney Rustle Blanket — one of the company's signature messenger bags!

The bag includes five storage compartments, including a large zippered front pocket, Velcro tab-closing internal pocket, and two slip pockets, as well as a unique design that isn't the most modern but is pretty eye-catching. A third leg stabilizer stops the bag from sliding around if you're on a bike, while an accessory loops and reflective material complete the bag.

You can pick up the Barney Rustle Blanket messenger bag in four different colors, including black, lime green, rainbow, and so much more!

5 games that are better on iPhone SE than iPhone 7 Plus

Posted on by Lory Gil.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Some games play great on the iPhone 7 Plus, but some games are just better on a 4-inch screen.

Most games look fantastic on the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus screen. The colors pop, there is more to see at one time, you can immerse yourself deeper into the action. When, however, you're trying to play games one-handed, it is sometimes better to have an iPhone with a four-inch screen. If you are sporting the iPhone SE like me, here are my favorite games that play better on a smaller screen than on a larger one (that's right iPhone 7 Plus users ... I said "better" — come at me!).

Pokémon GO

Don't get me wrong. I think Pokémon GO looks fantastic on the larger screen. You have so much room to look at those adorable pocket monsters. But, for practicality, nothing beats a one-handed PokéWalk. The iPhone 7 Plus is too much machine for such activities. I want to open the game, swipe a PokéStop, and move on. When I'm trying to catch a 'Mon, I want to be able to keep my walking pace while tossing Poké Balls. Having to use two hands to catch 'em all is just not as nice of an experience as being able to slyly swipe up with my thumb while I'm on a walk and suddenly have a new Seadra in my collection.

When walking and playing Pokémon GO, the iPhone 7 Plus requires a longer reach to the center of the screen. So most of the time, you'll need to hold your iPhone in one hand and swipe the Poké Ball or PokéStop with the other. Catching 'Mons becomes a complicated task instead of a fun activity. Have you ever tried eating an ice cream cone while catching Pokémon with an iPhone 7 Plus? I have. I dropped my ice cream. It sucked.

If you haven't joined the Pokémon GO phenomenon yet, you can get into the Gen 2 craze right now.

Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run is Nintendo's first attempt at a full-fledged arcade game in the mobile phone world. The game designers spent many long hours perfecting the perfect one-handed gaming experience. Whether you like the game or not, you can't deny that Nintendo's submission to the auto-run platformer category is a worthy competitor. The game is meant to be played with one hand, tapping away at the lower part of the screen (though, sometimes a center-screen tap is necessary to activate certain special features). It is an arcade game, so you'll be tapping pretty fast in some situations.

One-handed fast tapping on an iPhone 7 Plus screen can lead to a wobbly experience and might even make you drop your beautiful big phone (I speak from experience — I've done this). Which means a person might be more likely to hold their device in one hand while tapping with the other.

That's the exact opposite of what Nintendo spent all that time designing the game for. Maybe that's why it got negative reviews?

On the iPhone SE, you can hold the bus safety strap with one hand while tapping to win at Toad Rally with the other. You can order your latte and even pay for it if you're really good, while saving Princess Peach.

If you're using a 4-inch iPhone and haven't tried Super Mario Run yet because you heard it wasn't very good, try it. You'll see what I mean about how well-designed it is for one-handed mobile gaming.

Sonic Dash 2

Sonic the Hedgehog is another old-school flagship character gone mobile. Sega isn't afraid of the mobile game world and brought many of the Sonic titles to iOS years ago. Sonic Dash is the company's attempt at designing a game specifically for phones. Like Super Mario Run, this one is more than just an endless runner. It has all kinds of fun little additions that make it much better than the typical game in its genre.

In Sonic Dash 2, players swipe left, right, up, or down to keep the little blue hedgehog from crashing into things. You can also activate a dash, which gives Sonic and his buddies special powers while collecting gold rings.

On a 4-inch iPhone, this can all be done with one hand. You can swipe to your heart's content while writing a paper, taking out the garbage, or playing Super Mario Run on another iPhone with your other hand (just kidding — I'm pretty sure that would be way too hard).

The swiping controls are at the bottom center of the screen, which is doable on an iPhone 7 Plus, but is just more comfortable on an iPhone SE.

If you forgot all about Sonic and his dashing adventure, you should roll with him on an iPhone SE. I know you'll agree that it's fun to play on the smaller screen.

Temple Run 2

For a while, Temple Run was the most popular game on iOS. Then, the 4.7- and 5.5-inch iPhone came out and ruined the game. No. Just kidding. There have been numerous copycats and other versions that look and play just like Temple Run but with different characters and settings. The game is really fun and is still hugely popular.

It is also the perfect game to play one-handed. Similar to Sonic Dash, players swipe up, down, left, or right to control Guy Dangerous as he runs down a perilous path. In Temple Run 2, players also tilt their iPhone to pick up coins along the way.

Now, if you're on the Subway during rush hour and you're trying to stay upright by holding onto a nearby post, do you want to be tilting a giant 5.5-inch iPhone to the left and right to collect coins? I know I don't. I want my swiping and tilting actions to be as easy as possible so I can get the best score possible. I've literally almost thrown my iPhone 7 Plus out the window trying to play Temple Run 2 because I can't get a great grip on it while I'm tilting. In the excitement of trying to beat my high score, I tossed it out of my hand.

The iPhone SE is the perfect size for tilting and swiping when you're on the go. It's compact and everything on the screen is easy to reach. If you lose yourself in the excitement and do toss your 4-inch iPhone, it's much easier to catch with one hand, too.

If you haven't tried Temple Run 2 or forgot about it in all the Pokémon GO excitement, it is a pleasant gaming experience for iPhone SE owners.

Doodle Jump

This vertical arcade game won hearts everywhere years ago and is still a big hit. Why? Because it's so dang fun! All you have to do is tilt your iPhone to the left or right in order to jump from one platform to the next. Your little Popper will auto jump, but you have to make sure he lands on a platform. The higher you go, the more interesting things get.

Just like the tilting mechanics of Temple Run 2, you're not going to want to worry about how much room you need to tilt your iPhone to get your Popper to greater heights. Admittedly, you're not as likely to toss your iPhone out the window with Doodle Jump because the tilt is more subtle.

I always find myself using two hands when playing Doodle Jump on an iPhone 7 Plus because it seems like it needs a little extra support to properly balance the angle of the tilt. My Popper goes out of control when I play it one handed because I tend to over tilt with the heavier and taller iPhone.

The game was built for the smaller iPhone and the mechanics haven't changed in the eight years it's been around. It just feels right on the iPhone SE. On the 5.5-inch iPhone, it seems like too much muscle for a simple yet addictive game.

If you're over Doodle Jump's look but still like the game, you can try the DC Super Heroes version for free.

Bonus tip: If you are looking for games that play great on the iPhone SE (or any 4-inch phone), generally, any games that play in portrait mode and are basic tapping or endless runner games work the best.

Updated with even more information on Pokémon Go Gen 2 — gotta catch 'em more!

Pokémon Go has gotten 80 new Pokémon from the second generation. It started late last year with Togepi, Pichu, and the other Gen 2 babies the Johto Region in Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games, but now almost the complete Pokédex has been released. That's right: GEN 2 IS LIVE!

That includes new evolutions — and new split evolutions! — for Gen 1 Pokémon, and all new Gen 2 Pokémon as well. Here's everything you need to know!


BREAKING: Pokémon Day Event| Pokémon Go Gen 2!

New: Best evolutions | Evolution Items | Umbreon + Espeon | Hitmontop

Guides: Pokémon Go tips + tricks | Pokémon Go cheats


Wait. Stop the video and replay that! Gen 2 Pokémon are really here?!

"Finally!", right? From Pokémon Go:

Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and many more Pokémon are nearly here! Starting later this week, you'll have the opportunity to catch more than 80 Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games. We've also implemented some new features to enhance your Pokémon GO experience.

Additional Pokémon: More than 80 Pokémon that were originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games, as well as Pokémon with gender-specific variations, will start rolling out in Pokémon GO.

New Evolutions: There are now more opportunities to evolve your Pokémon in Pokémon GO than ever before. Some Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will soon be able to evolve—into Pokémon that inhabit the Johto region! Be on the lookout for new Evolution items at PokéStops, which you'll need to evolve some Pokémon.

New Encounter Gameplay: When you encounter Pokémon in the wild, don't be surprised if they react in new ways as you're trying to catch them. You'll also notice the addition of new item carousels that allow you to select Berries and Poké Balls directly from the encounter screen. Hone your skills and catch those elusive Pokémon!

New Berries: Pokémon enjoy eating Berries, and you'll have the opportunity to get two new Berries by spinning the Photo Disc at PokéStops—Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries! Giving a Pokémon a Nanab Berry will slow its movements, making it easier to catch. The Pinap Berry doubles the amount of Candy you'll receive if your next catch attempt succeeds.

New Avatars and an Expanded Wardrobe: Now you'll be able to give your avatar a complete upgrade! Customize your look with a whole new selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items.

So what are the new Pokémon in Gen 2? List me!

All told, there'll be 100 new Pokémon for the Gen 2 Pokédex in Pokémon Go. The full list is as follows, including types and max CP (as estimated by GamePress.

For images and more on all the Gen 2 Pokémon, see Bulbapedia.

Like with Gen 1, not all of them will be immediately available. We still haven't seen the Legendary Birds from Gen 1, or Mew or Mew 2. By the same token, there's no telling when we'll see the Legendary Beasts from Gen 2, or Celebi.

What are the common Pokémon of Gen 2?

Here are the Gen 2 Pokémon you'll find most often in the wild. - Hoothoot > Pidgey - Ledyba > Caterpie - Sentrat > Rattata - Spinarak > Weedle

Depending on your environment, you'll also see a lot of:

  • Murkrow
  • Natu
  • Swinub
  • Wooper

Note: None of the common Pokémon in Gen 2 evolve with only 12 Candies so, if you're into farming and grinding to power-level, you'll need to stick to Pidgey, Caterpie, and Weedle. (And their evolved forms and Pinap Berries to get even more Candy faster.)

Who's the Dragonite of Gen 2?

That would be Tyranitar, a rock/dark Pokémon that looks like Godzilla.

It's a three-stage evolution, just like Dragonite, so you can hatch Lavitar, catch Lavitar, Pupitar, and Tyranitar, and need 25 and 100 Candies for the evolutions.

These are the Gen 2 Pokémon you should evolve and power up for battling in Gyms

So, what are the Legendary and Mythical Pokémon in Gen 2?

You mean the ones we're not likely to see until after we see the Gen 1 Legendary or Mythical 'mon in events?

Legendary Beasts:

  • Raikou
  • Entei
  • Suicune

(Legendary) Tower Duo:

  • Lugia
  • Ho-Oh

Mythical

  • Celebi

And which ones are the Gen 2 Starters?

Just like Gen 1 has Starter Pokémon — Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander — so does Gen 2. They're not currently used as such in Pokémon Go, though. New players who start now will still be offered one of the original, Gen 1 starters (or Pikachu if they do the "walk away and back 10 times" trick).

  • Chikorita - grass-type.
  • Cyndaquil - fire-type.
  • Totodile - water-type.

These are the Gen 2 Pokémon you should catch — and keep catching!

Any Pokémon like Ditto in Gen 2 — ones we may not see for a while?

Ditto is the Gen 1 Pokémon that can take on the shape of almost any other Pokémon. While it wasn't in the original release last July, it showed up a few months later. That's led to some speculation Pokémon Go would do the same thing with Gen 2.

Unown, who in stark contrast to Ditto has many, many forms all its own — one for each letter of the alphabet! — has already been found. So count that one — er, twenty-six — out.

Smeargle, on the other hand, which has the ability to "sketch" or copy the last move used by any other Pokémon, so far hasn't been seen in the game. So, like Ditto, Pokémon Go might be saving it for a later release.

Speaking of Ditto, can it hide as any Gen 2 Pokémon?

Sure can! Just like Ditto can hide as a common Gen 1 Pokémon, including Pidgey, Rattata, Zubat, and Magikarp, it can also hide as a common Gen 2. In fact, the first Gen 2 I caught — a Hoothoot — turned out to be Ditto. &#128529;

  • Hoothoot
  • Sentret
  • Yanma

Any region exclusives in Gen 2?

Yes! Just like Taurus (U.S. and southern Canada), Farfetch'd (Japan, Hong Kong, and the vicinity), Mr. Mime (Western Europe), and Kangaskhan (Australia), Gen 2 has exclusives — but with a twist!

  • Heracross: Central and South America — below San Antonio, Houston, and New Orleans, and above Tampa.
  • Corsola: Southern U.S. to northern South America, northern Australia, northern Africa, south Asia — near the coasts.

Which Gen 2 Pokémon hatch from Pokémon Eggs, and which Eggs?

Here are the new Gen 2 Pokémon that hatch from 2 KM Pokémon Eggs:

  • Aipom
  • Chikorita
  • Totodile
  • Cyndaquil
  • Misdreavus
  • Pichu
  • Remoraid
  • Slugma
  • Togepi
  • Cleffa
  • Igglybuff
  • Ledyba

Gen 2 Pokémon that hatch from 5 KM Pokémon Eggs:

  • Elekid
  • Sneasel
  • Yanma
  • Girafarig
  • Natu
  • Magby
  • Phanpy
  • Qwilfish
  • Shuckle
  • Smoochum
  • Stantler
  • Tyrogue
  • Wobbuffet
  • Wooper
  • Dunsparce

And Gen 2 Pokémon that hatch from 5 KM Pokémon Eggs:

  • Gligar
  • Miltank
  • Larvitar
  • Mantine
  • Mareep
  • Pineco
  • Skarmory
  • Sudowoodo

Which of those are the new Gen 2 evolutions for your existing Pokémon?

The new evolutions in Gen 2 are these:

  • Golbat to Crobat
  • Gloom to Bellossom (split)
  • Poliwhirl to Politoed (split)
  • Eevee to Espeon (split)
  • Eevee to Umbreon (split)
  • Slowpoke to Slowking (split)
  • Onix to Steelix
  • Scyther to Scizor
  • Seadra to Kingdra
  • Porygon to Porygon 2
  • Chansey to Blissey

How to evolve Gen 1 Pokémon into Gen 2

But you'll need "evolution items" to do it?

For most of them. They'll be available from PokéStops, just like Pokémon Eggs. They're not that common, even less so than Pokémon Eggs, and they get used up. So, you'll have to get one for each evolution you want to perform.

  • Sun Stone: Evolve Gloom to Bellossum.
  • Kings Rock: Evolve Poliwhirl to Politoed, Slowpoke to Slowking
  • Metal Coat: Evolve Onix to Steelix, Scyther to Scizor
  • Dragon Scale: Evolve Seadra to Kingdra
  • Up Grade: Evolve Porygon to Porygon 2

How to evolve Gen 1 Pokémon into Gen 2

And Steelix is really a titan of legend?

Ginormously slow.

Which Gen 1 Pokémon don't need Evolution Items to evolve to Gen 2?

It's a short list:

  • Golbat to Crobat
  • Eevee to Espeon (split)
  • Eevee to Umbreon (split)
  • Chansey to Blissey

Is there a trick to force Eevee to evolve into Umbreon or Espeon in Gen 2?

There is indeed. Like in Gen 1, to get your first Umbreon or Espeon, all you have to do it re-name the Eevee you want to evolve after its trainer from the original Pokémon animated series.

  • Sakura for Espeon
  • Tamao for Umbreon

To get additional Espeon and Umbreon, though, you have to use Pokémon Go's version of "friendship": Make Eevee your Buddy, walk 10 KM, and then evolve during the day for Espeon or at night for Umbreon.

And there's another trick to evolve Tyrogue into Hitmontop?

Indeed, just a different kind of trick. It's also an homage to the original game but instead of being based on nicknames it's based on stats (IV). Catch or hatch a Tyrogue, the new base-level hitmon. Then, when you hit the evolve button, you'll get:

  • Hitmonlee when Attack is the highest stat.
  • Himonchan when Defense is the highest stat.
  • Hitmontops when HP is the highest stat.

How to evolve Tyrogue into Hitmontop in Pokémon Go Gen 2

Can you catch Steelix, Slowking, Umbreon, Espeon, and the rest in the wild?

No, not yet at least. None of the Pokémon that require an Evolution Item have been seen or caught in the wild, nor has Umbreon or Espeon. The only exception is Hitmontop, which seems to be spawning randomly like the other Hitmon.

For the rest, you need their Evolution Items or their tricks.

Are Gen 2 Pokémon harder to catch than Gen 1?

Kinda, but not really. Gen 2 isn't harder to catch but when Gen 2 was released, Pokémon Go seems to have made Gen 1 about 25% easier to catch. In other words, they adjusted the catch rate for Gen 1 so those Pokémon won't escape Poké Balls quite so often as they did before.

So, Gen 2 Pokémon aren't harder to catch, Gen 1 has just gotten easier. (Relativism is hard!)

Pokémon Go did add a new catch mechanic, though: Critical Catch. No bounces. No escapes. Just fireworks and an instant add to your collection. They appear to be random right now but if a pattern is discovered, I'll update and let you know!

How to stack bonuses and catch tough Pokémon in Pokémon Go

And there are new berries as well? Pinap Berry and Nanab Berry? How do they work?

A Razz Berry, which has been around since Pokémon Go launched, gives you a 1.5x catch bonus. So, if you hit it, it's less likely to escape. The new berry types have different effects:

  • Nahab Berry stops a Pokémon from darting around s much, making it easier to hit in the first place. So far, I haven't found them to be too useful, though.

  • Pinab Berry does nothing to make Pokémon easier to hit or catch. But, if you do hit and catch them after using a Pinab Berry, you get double Candy.

Any word on the new moves for the new Gen 2 Pokémon?

Here are the Gen 2 quick moves:

  • Counter
  • Powder Snow
  • Charge Beam
  • Volt Switch
  • Dragon Tail
  • Infestation
  • Struggle Bug
  • Astonish
  • Iron Tail
  • Fire Spin
  • Bullet Seed
  • Extrasensory
  • Air Slash
  • Hex
  • Snarl

And the Gen 2 charge moves:

  • Close Combat
  • Dynamic Punch
  • Focus Blast
  • Aurora Beam
  • Wild Charge
  • Zap Cannon
  • Avalanche
  • Brave Bird
  • Sky Attack
  • Sand Tomb
  • Rock Blast
  • Silver Wind
  • Night Shade
  • Gyro Ball
  • Heavy Slam
  • Overheat
  • Grass Knot
  • Energy Ball
  • Futuresight
  • Mirror Coat
  • Outrage
  • Crunch
  • Foul Play

You can see the Damage per second (DSP) at the Sylph Road.

What about Gen 1 movesets now that Gen 2 is out?

They've been... tweaked. Some for the better, some for the worse, but to the extent that a lot of the most powerful movesets from Gen 1 are no longer possible to get post-Gen 2. That makes them "legacy". But the changes also make some of them slower and less than ideal compared to what they used to be.

It's really painful for players who spent a lot of time, Candy, and Stardust evolving and powering up what were up until now the most capable attackers and defenders in the game. But it is what it is.

Many people are looking into the new movesets now and we'll update our list for Gen 1 and add Gen 2 as soon as possible.

Some Gen 2 Pokémon launched previously, right?

The babies, yes! Most of them arrived in December of 2016. They're still here but you can now catch them in the wild as well as hatch them in eggs.

  • Cleffa (baby Clefairy)
  • Igglybuff (baby Jigglypuff)
  • Pichu (baby Pikachu)
  • Togepi (baby Togetic)
  • Magby (baby Magmar)
  • Smoochum (baby Jinx)
  • Elekid (baby Electobuzz)

Just added:

  • Tyrogue (baby Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, and Hitmontops)

What Pokémon Gen 2 Candy should you hoard now to prep for Gen 3 and Gen 4?

Ha! LOL. Okay.

  • Aipom
  • Gligar
  • Misdreavus
  • Murkrow
  • Piloswine
  • Porygon2
  • Sneasel
  • Togetic
  • Yanma

Cloudflare data leakage doesn’t reveal 1Password secrets

Researchers discovered just a few days ago that the content-distribution network (CDN) Cloudflare sometimes returned garbled Web pages that could contain private and secret information instead of the cached data that it was supposed to. CDNs speed up the Web by allowing sites to push pages and media to Internet nodes closer to a user requesting them. (PCWorld has the full story.)

Among the sites mentioned by Tavis Ormandy, a Google Project Zero security researcher who uncovered the fault, was AgileBit’s 1Password.com, though Ormandy referred to it just as “1Password.” AgileBits’ 1Password password and data safe apps can be used as standalone products, synced via Dropbox and other methods, or linked to paid accounts at 1Password.com for business and family purposes to share passwords, documents, and other data. (Macworld has contacted Ormandy for clarification.)

Google shuts Spaces, the content-sharing app you probably never heard of

Posted on by Michael Simon.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Last year Google announced a new app called Spaces with a simple goal: simplify the way we share things with people online. Sort of like a virtual room where you could connect with people to engage in specific topic of conversation, the experimental service was one of many in Google’s catalogue that failed to gain many users.

To the surprise of no one, Google has now announced it will be shuttering Spaces. In a post on Google+, product manager John Kilcine broke the news, saying that while Google has “learned a lot about how people come together to share ideas and content around any topic,” Spaces will be moving into read-only mode in the coming weeks before shutting down its iOS and Android apps completely on April 17.

Five best flight tracking apps for iPhone

Posted on by Lory Gil.
Categories: Uncategorized.

If you're feeling lost in the air, these flight tracking apps will keep you grounded!

The popular flight tracking apps FlightBoard and FlightTrack 5 are both making their final decent (sorry for the pun). As of March 1, the developer, Mobiata, shut down the apps so they no longer provide tracking information or notifications of any kind. If you are feeling stranded in the air (there goes another pun), these are the best flight tracking apps for iPhone to replace your beloved FlightBoard or FlightTrack 5.

App in the Air

App in the Air is my personal favorite. When you enter your flight number, it will keep your entire trip organized from start to finish, including check-in times, boarding times, take off and landing times, delays, gate numbers, and more. If you are picking someone up from the airport, you can search for flights by location, arrival time, and flight numbers to get their current status. You can also set up notifications to keep track of any changes to your flight. If there has been a gate change or delay, you'll know before you even get in the car to drive to the airport.

If you are a frequent traveler or like keeping track of the flight status of family, friends, and business associates, App in the Air is your tracker.

FlightView

FlightView is a popular flight tracking website that lets you view real-time flight statuses. The same company has three tiers of iOS apps, each with progressively more features. You can track your flight and even see, in real time, where it is over the Earth. You can manage your itinerary, including car rentals and hotel reservations, get alerts about delays, get the local weather report before the captain announces it, and even see how the worldwide weather is affecting general airport delays.

If you have a bad case of FOMO (fear of missing out) and need to see the status of every flight coming in and out of an airport, FlightView Elite includes access to flight boards, which you can also filter by airline, origin, destination city, and arrival or departure time.

If you fly regularly in bad weather, FlightView will keep you abreast of how that weather will affect your flight.

GateGuru

When I go on vacation, I kinda hate the first and last day ... because travel. Getting to the airport on time, making sure I've got my reservations all squared away, hoping there isn't a long line at TSA — it can all be very stressful. GateGuru is designed specifically for those travel days with tools that help organize your itinerary. When you enter your itinerary, it will let you know which terminal you should go to, the day's weather, your gate information, flight status, TSA wait times, airport food information, airport maps, and car rental information.

It's less about tracking your flight and more about making that day of travel as comfortable as possible for you. If you normally worry about how long you might have to stand in the security line (like I do), you can check the estimated wait. If you end up at an airport for a lengthy amount of time, you can look up the best place to eat or find some entertainment at your terminal.

If travel days stress you out when you're on vacation, get GateGuru to help see you through the anxiety. Who knows, maybe travel days will actually become fun for you.

Flightradar24

If you're less interested in tracking your flight and more interested in the general aesthetic of aviation, you should check out Flightradar24. Not only can you track planes around the U.S., Europe, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and more, including where they are in the air, but you can also see what the pilot sees in real time with the Cockpit View's dashboard cam. When a plane flies overhead, you can point your iPhone at it and, using augmented reality, find out the flight number, where it left from, and where it's headed. Flightradar24 also has some fun tracking tools so you can set up notifications, filter by airline or aircraft, find out weather conditions for a particular airport, and even view the entire flight board at an airport.

If you're an aviation enthusiast, you'll be able to spend hours tracking planes with Flightradar24.

Now Arriving

Sometimes, you don't need all the details of where a plane is, how long it is in the air, or whether it's raining at the airport. Sometimes, you just need to know what time to pick someone up. Now Arriving is a simple app with one main purpose: to tell you when a flight is supposed to land. Enter a flight number and you'll see when it will arrive, what gate it will pull into, and how long it will take you to get to the airport from your current location.

This app is great for someone like me. I pick up friends and family from the airport all of the time because I live close. I estimate my drive time, and assume the flight arrival time is correct, but sometimes I get it wrong, and either have to drive around the airport for 15 minutes, or my poor family has to wait around in the rain for me to get there. Now Arriving takes out the guess work.

If the only thing you care about is what time you have to pick up the in-laws from the airport, then Now Arriving is your cup of tea.
