Over the past few days, we ve covered a couple of tools that help you track Pokémon in the AR game Pokémon Go.If you ve been hoping to use PokéVision, PokéNotify or PokéHound to help you find Pokémon in the wild today, you re out of luck.These apps have shut down or have likely been ordered to shut down by developer Niantic Labs, as they are in violation of Pokémon s terms of service.None of these apps have explicitly named Niantic in their announcements about winding down their services.However, there s reason to believe that the developer is behind the wave of shutdowns; CEO John Hanke told Forbes last week that such apps might not be available for long:We have priorities right now but they might find in the future that those things may not work.

The saga of Apple reportedly removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from the upcoming iPhone 7 is a long and ongoing thing, filled with increasing reasons to believe the old-school prong will be eked out in favor of the proprietary Lightning connector."But how will I listen to my jams with my current set of headphones?""Surely there's some kind of adapter, right?"Those specific fears may be assuaged, as a video shows off a 3.5mm-to-Lightning dongle that could wind up as Apple's official solution to keeping your old 'phones in use, as found via Mashable.The adapter does have enough of that Apple flavor to seem legit, but there's still no confirmation if the device is an official product - or if Apple really is dropping the headphone jack at all, so take this information with a low sodium count's worth of salt.Some big questions remain on our brain, though.

By now you may have grown tired of hearing about zucchini noodles aka zoodles but I m here to break up your veggie noodle boredom with eggplant noodles.You don t even need a spiralizer.The beauty of this veggie noodle is two-fold: they cook super fast and—since they are made of spongy eggplant—they absorb flavorful sauces like whoa.To make them, peel an eggplant and julienne it into thin noodles, using a sharp knife or a mandoline if you have one, but true to the headline, you don t need one to do this.Saute them in hot oil The Kitchn recommends 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon sesame until soft and slightly browned, about 3-5 minutes.Top with whatever sauce, meat, or veggies you see fit, or use The Kitchn s spicy recipe linked below.

Although both Oculus VR and HTC have released consumer versions of their VR headsets, there are still a number of other firms beavering away to bring their piggies to market.One such solution is Fove s eye-tracking headset, which has just passed a new ergonomic milestone, looking much more like a consumer headset every time we see it.Although still not quite ready to begin shipping it out to eager VR viewers around the world, Fove will be showing off its latest headset at Comic-Con and SIGGRAPH 2016, giving gamers their first taste of what the newly designed headset is like.Although the Fove doesn t look too dissimilar to its last iteration, the newest version does away with the hard plastic shell, side-grips, and rear head mount, and replaces them with a strap system that s much more like the Rift and the Vive.Of course the major feature of this headset is still that it can track the user s eye movements.That means that content can be better focused for the user, expanding the traditional sweet spot seen in other headsets.

Google Search Console GSC is powerful and provides a boatload of data directly from Google.There s a nifty Download button at the bottom of the report which enables you to export a spreadsheet with your landing page data.That s great, but I m about to rain on your parade: The UI in Google Search Console is limited to only one thousand URLs.For example, setting up directories in GSC, which will focus your reporting on URLs located just in those directories.But it s not perfect, especially for sites that don t have categories mapped out as distinct directories.And you re still limited to one thousand rows of data per directory.

It s a tiny bit amusing that despite everything we know about Apple s upcoming next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, there are still some pretty basic things we don t know.We know just about exactly what the iPhone 7 is going to look like, and we also know what the larger iPhone 7 Plus will look like.We know the phones will lose the 3.5mm audio port and gain thinner housings with redesigned antenna lines that are much easier on the eyes.We also know that both phones will feature new and improved cameras, though the camera on the Plus model will be a much bigger upgrade than the one on the smaller iPhone 7.But ironically, we still don t know one of the most basic things about these two upcoming new phones: We have no idea what they ll be called.In the past, Apple has released new iPhone numbers on alternate years with S upgrades separating them.

Marissa Mayer just delivered Yahoo's quarterly earnings results for the 18th time since she was appointed CEO exactly four year ago.With Yahoo currently up for sale, it's reasonable to wonder whether there will be a 19th or 20th earnings conference call with Mayer at the helm.Mayer did not provide an update on the sales process, even though the final round of bids for groups interested in acquiring Yahoo are reportedly due today.Instead, she stuck to walking investors through another lackluster set of quarterly results.But after her introductory remarks, Mayer gave what sounded a lot like a farewell speech.The 41-year-old CEO, who was hired from Google four years ago to revitalize the struggling web company, defended her track record and insisted that the company was in a better position than when she took control.Yahoo's business has been dramatically simplified, Mayer said, its bloated headcount bought back to 2005 levels and its portfolio of online products "refreshed.
