Ads are appearing in Google Feed for some

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

In what seems to be a limited test, the Google Feed has started showing ads for some users. The ads look about like you'd expect: otherwise normal cards with a little green "Ad" badge in the corner. Unsurprisingly, people are not pleased.

We're getting reports directly, and people have started complaining on Twitter and Google+. Google is in the ads business, so it's logical that it would want to stuff advertisements everywhere valuable eyeballs might look.

Facebook Stories are getting video ads

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Posting social media updates is so yesterday. Stories are all the rage now with big players like Snapchat and Instagram racking up many millions of Stories each day. Now, Facebook's version of stories has hit a big user milestone—150 million daily users. Being Facebook, that means it's time to start pushing ads.

In case you're unaware, Facebook Stories are similar to stories on every other platform. They're short video and photo montages put together by users.

Samsung will cram bloatware apps from Verizon’s Oath into its phones

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

You know what my $800 smartphone is missing? Sponsored content and ads that are accessible with a hardware button. No one has ever actually said that and meant it, but that's what Samsung owners could be getting very soon. Verizon's Oath, which includes Yahoo and AOL properties, has announced a deal with Samsung to integrate its content and "native ads" into Bixby Home and pre-load more bloatware apps. As if you didn't already have enough reason to disable Bixby.

German Supreme Court rules Adblock Plus practices legal in final decision

Friday, April 20th, 2018

German-based eyeo, parent company of popular ad blocker Adblock Plus, announced yesterday that it had won a case against publishing house Axel Springer heard in the German Supreme Court, putting an end to a longstanding legal dispute and affirming with finality that both the blocking of ads and allowing certain unobtrusive ads to be exempt from that blocking—a practice called whitelisting—are legal in the country.

Eyeo has been feuding with Axel Springer since 2015, when the company sued eyeo, claiming the German press has a constitutional right to serve ads to its readers.

Google expands Funding Choices to 31 more countries to help publishers offset lost ad revenue

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

It's an unfortunate fact, but none of your favorite websites — Android Police included — would be able to exist without ad revenue. Nobody likes to be bombarded with ads when they browse the web, which is why most of us use ad blockers. This is great for end users but potentially catastrophic for publishers, and that's why Google's Funding Choices exists.

Even if you aren't aware of it by name, you'll likely have come across it before.

Crypto Rider lets you ride the thrilling roller coaster of cryptocurrency prices

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

For most people, investing in cryptocurrencies is already enough of an emotional roller coaster as it is. The highly volatile and unpredictable highs and lows of Bitcoin, Etherium, Litecoin, and the like are enough to put almost anyone on edge, especially when money is involved. But if for some reason that doesn't satisfy your adrenalin fix, a new game called Crypto Rider might.

The premise of the game is rather simple: you cruise your tiny crypto-car along a set track and try to finish is the shortest time possible without crashing.

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

You're probably familiar with Taboola, at least in passing. It's the source of many sponsored news sections on websites. Now, Taboola is looking to become part of your smartphone with its new "content discovery" platform. It looks a lot like the Google Feed, but it's not. In fact, it could come off like one giant ad on your phone.

Taboola pitches its news feed as a way to get personalized news. Instead of searching for content, you just swipe over to the Taboola screen on your device and start browsing.
