CBS CEO Les Moonves faces sexual misconduct investigation

The board is hiring an independent company to conduct the investigation. “All allegations of personal misconduct are to be taken seriously. The Independent Directors of CBS have committed to investigating claims that violate the Company’s clear policies in that regard,” the board said in a statement. Once the investigation is complete, the board will weigh the findings, then decide on appropriate measures.

For the time being, Moonves will remain as CEO and “the CBS management team has the full support of the independent board members,” in part due to an ongoing legal dispute with CBS owner National Amusements. Moonves and Shari Redstone, who is National Amusements president as well as vice chairman of CBS and Viacom, have disagreed over the company’s direction. Redstone has attempted to merge the company with Viacom, which National Amusements also owns, but Moonves [...]  read more

How A Group of Imprisoned Hackers Introduced JPay to the World

Until yesterday, unless you had a family member or friend inside prison, you most likely had never heard of JPay. That’s because all of its services are directed towards people inside the nation’s prisons—and their family members.

Since 2002, JPay has been quietly moving into prisons across the country, first by providing quicker (though pricier) ways for family members to send money to incarcerated loved ones and, since 2004, by providing limited email systems in prisons across the country—systems which are often touted as an innovation that keeps incarcerated people connected with their families and prisons operating in the 21st century. In keeping up with the rapidly-progressing technological times, JPay also offers prison-specific tablets allowing incarcerated users to access their e-messages as well as to buy music and play electronic games.

But this week, Idaho prison officials announced that these tablets became the means for 363 people, incarcerated across [...]  read more

The 22 best Nintendo DS games: all the titles you absolutely need to revisit

Best Nintendo DS Games

Best Nintendo DS Games

It’s hard to believe but it’s been 13 years since the very first Nintendo DS console was released, making it a platform with a game library many have carried from their childhoods through to their early adult years.

While its dual-screen was a form factor experiment that could have gone either way, we think the number of consoles that have spawned from the very first DS is a good sign. Over the last 13 years we’ve seen the DS, the DS Lite, DSi, the 2DS, the 3DS and a bunch of XL releases in between. We’ve become so used to the dual-screen console we don’t think we could do without it now.

It’s Nintendo’s refusal to play it safe that’s probably helped it stay so successful in this area. The dual-screen design might have been a risk but it was obviously a worthwhile one since we’ve seen it evolve and improve from the DS through to the new 3DS – and even further to the new Nintendo Switch.

That said, no matter how good a console’s design and no matter how many innovations it makes, it won’t stand the test of time without good games to keep players interested. Thankfully, the Nintendo DS had no shortage of those – from the great entries [...]  read more

Google Assistant can now do things automatically at a scheduled time

Back at Google I/O, Google announced two new features for Google Assistant, both focusing on automating things you do regularly: custom routines, and schedules.

The first lets you trigger multiple commands with a single custom phrase — like saying “Hey Google, I’m awake” to unsilence your phone, turn on the lights, and read the news. Schedules, meanwhile, could trigger a series of commands at a specific time on specific days, without you needing to say a thing.

While custom routines launched almost immediately after I/O, scheduling has been curiously absent. It’s starting to roll out today.

As first noticed by DroidLife, it looks like scheduling has started rolling out to users by way of the Google Home app.

To make a schedule:

  • Open the Google Home app
  • Go to Settings>Routines
  • Create a new routine with the + button
  • Scroll to the “Set a time and day” option to schedule things ahead of time

If you don’t see the “time and day” option yet, check back in a day or two. Google is rolling it out over the next few days (generally done in case there’s some bug it missed), so it might pop up without much fanfare.
