News Roundups: Microsoft Misleading 4K Marketing? + Super Mario Run Bigger than Pokemon? + Twitch Comes for YouTube

Microsoft admits that marketing 4K is difficult, so they have to "fudge" it to try to drive their point home with potential consumers... so at least they're honest about that? Super Mario Run is expected to rival Pokemon Go numbers in driving revenue for Nintendo now that it's out on iOS. Twitch is coming for YouTube with yet another feature--this time targeting mobile live streaming and vloggers. At least one Crytek employee is fighting back over the lack of pay. And Yahoo has been hacked... again. Yes, this is a different hack than the last biggest hack ever, and this one is even bigger.

    But... Twitch started as a life streaming site (Justin.tv). Then they split the giant gamin section into it's own shell (Twitch.tv). The parent company then went all in on Twitch, re branding themselves as Twitch, and shutting down Justin.tv. So really Twitch is just revitalizing their old life streaming section.

    You know, I am kind of surprised one billion people had Yahoo accounts in 2013.

    Is it really misleading to have to find a way to convince people who cannot see the advert in actual 4K that 4K is actually better than what they're currently seeing? How would RT create an advert to try to convince someone who isn't using 4K to switch to 4K?


    This isn't something that just Microsoft does. This is something that everyone does. It's no different than trying to convey a taste or smell over a TV advert. If you want to go dishonest, reeking of AXE bodywash doesn't make you cool.


    ... not that I would know anything about that.

    I was getting notifications about someone in another country trying to access my Yahoo account. Then I heard about the first hack and deleted my account. Glad I did because this one sounds much worse.

    Level 99 before the first quest is finished? When ever I hear about anything like this, I think about that South Park episode when the are playing WoW and get to max level by killing boars.
