  • Google's Hangout Comedy Club measures your laughs for Comic Relief (video)

    Google's Hangout Comedy Club will measure your laughs for a good cause video

    Whether or not you believe that laughter is the best medicine, it should do some genuine good at Google’s just-launched Hangout Comedy Club. The multi-day event is raising funds for Comic Relief by measuring the laughs at comedy gigs hosted through Google+ Hangouts — yuk it up and Google will optionally make a donation. The particularly brave can also sit in the virtual front row and heckle from the comfort of home. Sanderson Jones has already taken to the Hangout Comedy Club stage as we write this, but those who miss out on his show can check out subsequent gigs at the source link.

  • Apple revises App Store guidelines on children and gambling apps

    Developer guidelines for getting into Apple’s good graces have never been static, but today’s update to the App Review Guidelines revealed a few more notable changes than usual. Specifically, the folks in Cupertino have unveiled new rules regarding gambling and children’s apps. With the former, all gambling apps that offer real money need to be free, have proper licensing and permissions, be restricted in areas that disallow it and can’t offer credit through in-app purchases.

    As for the latter, children’s apps must now reflect an additional restriction in the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) that prevents developers from collecting media-related data like photos and videos from minors. Further, all apps for kids now require a privacy policy, behavioral advertising restrictions and a prompt for parental permission prior to any in-app purchase. As iTunes has recently allowed kids under 13 to have their own accounts, certain apps may also ask for a child’s birth date, but only in accordance with current privacy statutes. iOS devs interested in making the App Store cut should certainly take heed of the new guidelines and get to coding — at least while they still can.

  • Yahoo Toolbar gets a redesign, reminding us to weep for toolbar users

    Yahoo unveils redesigned toolbar, parties like it's 2003

    Let’s get this straight. Yahoo can afford to kill a dozen products at once, but the Yahoo Toolbar — a relic from the days when only birds Twittered — just got a full makeover? Go figure. At least the browser add-on has received the same sort of tender loving care given to other recent Yahoo apps, including a fresh look, speed improvements and Chrome support. If you rely heavily on Yahoo services, or just have trouble letting go of the past, the toolbar update is available today.
