Apple promotes ‘Pay Once and Play’ games in App Store

Apple is promoting “Pay Once and Play” games as part of the company’s regular refresh of featured App Store titles. “Enjoy hours of uninterrupted fun with complete experiences spanning the App Store’s most beloved genres,” says the blurb for the new collection. “Packed with thrills and unforgettable moments, these powerhouse games belong in every collection.”

this isn’t really a sign of Apple’s allegiance

It’s tempting to say that the promotion shows that Apple prefers pay-once titles to freemium ones, but really, this is just one of the many angles that the company has taken with its App Store collections. It doesn’t really say anything about Apple’s wider motivation.

There’s no doubt, of…

Once again, unvaccinated people experience a measles outbreak

The Disneyland measles outbreak is directly attributable to vaccine-denier movements, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today in a conference call with reporters.

From January 1 to 28, 84 people in 14 states have been reported as having measles, said Anne Schuchat, the head of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. Most of these cases — 56 people — are linked to the outbreak at Disneyland resort in Anaheim, where five employees are sick as well. The remainder were infected abroad and brought the disease back.

last year, the cdc reported 644 measles cases Measels was declared eliminated in the US in 2000, but they’ve been creeping back. From 2000 to 2010, there were usually about 60 cases a…

Carlo Scarpa's Casa Tabarelli, Rediscovered

Disney Movies Anywhere now lets you buy once and watch on any iOS or Android device

The Disney Movie Anywhere app now lives up to its name — after launching for iOS and the iTunes Store earlier this year, Disney is now bringing its movie-curating app to Android and Google Play. That partnership between Disney and Google means that things just got a lot easier for anyone who wants to watch their Disney movie library across both Android and iOS devices. Now, any Disney, Pixar, or Marvel Universe movies you purchase on Google Play, as well as anything you’ve bought in the past, can automatically be added to a Disney account — where those movies can live alongside anything you previously purchased on iTunes or redeemed using the digital copy that accompanies many physical DVD and Blu-Ray purchases.

It sounds a little…

Yahoo Directory, once the center of a web empire, will shut down at year’s end

Yahoo Directory, a site that was once the center of Yahoo’s internet dynasty, is being shut down at the end of the year. However, unless you’ve been using the internet for a couple of decades, you’ve probably never heard of the site. Let’s hop in an internet time machine and set the dial back to 1994, when Jerry Lang and David Filo founded Yahoo. The site, “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web,” was little more than a hand-curated list of sites on the internet, sorted by category.

At the time, fast, efficient, and accurate search engines like Google were just a dream — navigating the internet relied on such lists of interesting websites. The site was later named Yahoo (an acronym for “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle,”…
