Yahoo may no longer be able to keep up with Google’s massive empire, but its Yahoo Answers actually remains one of the most visited Q&A websites in all of the world wide web, with more than 3.1 million monthly visitors in the United States alone.

Just recently this week, Google has rolled out a number of new updates to its mobile app for the iOS mobile operating system.

There were reports earlier that the Pokemon Go game installed on iOS powered mobile devices asked for full access to a user’s Google account when signing up. But now, the developer of the game, Niantic Labs has rolled out an update that should modify the permissions needed. When requesting for information, the game now limits its permission to “Know who you are on Google” and “View your email address.”
Niantic Labs, the developer of the massively popular game Pokemon Go, has full access to mobile users’ Google accounts, that is if they used their Google account to log into the game from a mobile device built by Apple. Whoops. To its credit, Niantic has said on record that it did not access anything other than user IDs and email addresses, and has promised from here on that it will significantly reduce the access it requests.
Now in its third week, T-Mobile Tuesdays is a new mobile app from T-Mobile that aims to grant lots of giveaways every Tuesday to the wireless carrier’s subscribers for their loyalty. But it appears that this latest program from T-Mobile continues to experience some issues.
As part of its Uncarrier 11 campaign, T-Mobile debuted a mobile app called T-Mobile Tuesdays about a couple of weeks ago. One of the free giveaways promised to users of the app was free pizza, but it appears that the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States has been compelled to discontinue its free pizza deal, but only temporarily (we hope).
This week marks the start of T-Mobile’s latest Uncarrier program, which includes free stock in the company, and lots of freebies, courtesy of the major US wireless carrier’s T-Mobile Tuesdays mobile app. To redeem the free stuff, T-Mobile subscribers need only launch the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, but unfortunately, the app appears to have encountered some problems in its debut.
