With Pokémon Go rapidly becoming the top mobile application in the United States, we decided to feature a GitHub project that aims to take the game to the next level.The idea of Pokémon Go is that users will have to leave their house in order to scout out and capture Pokémon. There are different types of Pokémon in different places, and sometimes it can be dangerous to go alone or get to certain places.As an effort to address this (and also to be a little bit lazy), Pokémon Go Controller allows users to play the game safely and in unavailable places.“Clone this Xcode project and run on your iPhone/iPad,” according to the project’s GitHub page. “This app actually performs a web server that tells your chosen location; your location will be wherever the Pokéball is, so you may drag the map of press the buttons.”Is this considered cheating? That’s up for debate. Considering that the point of the game is to actually get moving, then it does seem unfair that people are trying to find shortcuts. But we can’t help if developers come up with creative ways to play their games.last_img read more

Within a month of the GDPR General Data Protectio

first_imgWithin a month of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) going into effect, Google was already seen violating the regulation. French regulatory body CNIL (National Data Protection Commission) sent two complaints on June 1, 2018 regarding Google not having a valid legal basis for processing users’ personal data.Now, CNIL is proposing a penalty of €50 million ($56.8 million USD) against Google. According to CNIL, this is the first time the organization is applying a penalty in regards to the GDPR.CNIL observed two breaches by Google of the GDPR. The first is that the information provided by Google is now easily accessible to users. Second, some of that information is not always clearly stated or comprehensive.In response, Google claimed that it does obtain user consent to process data to personalize advertisements, but the committee found two reasons that this consent is not validly obtained. CNIL found that users’ consent is not sufficiently informed and is “neither ‘specific’ nor ‘unambiguous.’”“Despite the measures implemented by GOOGLE (documentation and configuration tools), the infringements observed deprive the users of essential guarantees regarding processing operations that can reveal important parts of their private life since they are based on a huge amount of data, a wide variety of services and almost unlimited possible combinations. The restricted committee recalls that the extent of these processing operations in question imposes to enable the users to control their data and therefore to sufficiently inform them and allow them to validly consent. Moreover, the violations are continuous breaches of the Regulation as they are still observed to date. It is not a one-off, time-limited, infringement,” CNIL wrote in a post.last_img read more
