  • ‘Fire Emblem Heroes’ is Nintendo’s next mobile game, launches in FebruaryAs expected, Nintendo unveiled its next mobile game on Wednesday afternoon during the company's Fire Emblem live stream. The new game is called Fire Emblem Heroes , and unlike Super Mario Run , it will release first for Android on February 2nd and will be available on iPhone and iPad as well "soon." Similar to Super Mario Run , Fire Emblem Heroes is a simplified version of the games in the franchise on which it is based, with gameplay and visuals better suited to a smartphone than a handheld console or an HDTV. Like other Fire Emblem titles, Fire Emblem Heroes is a strategy game in which you take control of a team of characters and navigate a grid-based battlefield while slaying enemies in your path. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq1Xzycyp2E While the maps in Fire Emblem Heroes  all exist on the same 8x6 grid, Nintendo expects fans of the series to find the tactical aspect of the game just as challenging as they would in one of the series' previous entries. Fire Emblem Heroes will be free to play, but Nintendo says it will include optional in-app purchases as well. Those in-app purchases include orbs, which can be used to acquire new heroes to join your team. Although you can acquire orbs within the game, you can supplement your supply with real money too. Along with a main quest, the mobile game also features a Training Tower in which to train your heroes, Special Maps where seasonal events will take place and Arena Duels where you'll compete for high scores. You can also participate in Hero Battles, and if you win, that hero will join your team. You can pre-register for Fire Emblem Heroes on Google Play  right now.

  • ‘Fake news’ didn’t swing the election because people barely remembered it, study says“Fake news” is an all-purpose non-sequitur at this point, but the term does describe a relatively new phenomena popularized in the 2016 presidential election: deliberately fabricated (as opposed to erroneous or biased) stories from little-known sources, which could spread rapidly through direct sharing on sites like Facebook. The paper, written by Stanford University professor Matthew Gentzkow and NYU professor Hunt Allcott, aims to calculate the effect of “fake news” by answering a few basic questions. First of all, how many Americans read and trust news they find through social media?
  • The iPhone 7s might also get the iPhone 8’s biggest new featureApple is widely expected to adopt OLED displays for the iPhone, a first for its flagship product. Multiple reports said so far that only one of Apple’s three anticipated new iPhones for 2017 will have an OLED screen, the iPhone 8. The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, the logical successors of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, should still use LCD screens, the same reports said. However, there’s a chance that some iPhone 7s versions will also have OLED screens. The new development comes from a research note from Cowen and Company seen by Apple Insider . Analyst Timothy Arcuri said that Apple’s iPhone 8 will feature a 5.8-inch OLED screen with a wraparound screen unlike anything else seen on a phone so far. The iPhone 7s will retain the expected 4.7-inch screen, and the iPhone 7s Plus will have a 5.5-inch display. Arcuri says that Apple may yet choose to use OLED displays in the iPhone 7s models. Two factors may influence this decision, including Samsung’s capacity to deliver the enough OLED screens that match Apple's requirements, and consumption of Apple’s existing LCD inventory. Recent reports said that Samsung will be the only OLED display manufacturer for the iPhone, but even the South Korean giant can’t possibly meet Apple’s demand. That’s why only the iPhone 8 will get the new OLED screens. Furthermore, reports claimed that other smartphone makers have been taking notice of iPhone 8 OLED rumors and are looking to secure OLED supply for their own handsets. Apple’s switch to OLED for the iPhone should significantly improve the overall screen performance. Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7 have been widely praised for their OLED screens, which offer superior features to the iPhone’s LCD screen.
