HypeHop is a product to fix sponsored videos: I’ve been thinking hard about the concept of sponsored content – you can find some of it on TechCrunch if you look hard enough and it appears almost everywhere else. It’s an important consideration because as a online journalist I’ve heard everything from “How much did Apple pay you to post this?” to “How much can I pay you to post something to TechCrunch?” And I’m sick of it. Journalists afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. Marketers comfort the comfortable. The only person who wins in that struggle is the guy with the biggest wallet to buy as much coverage as possible. Crypto, for all its faults, promises to change that. Now I’d like to introduce something else I built (and I never do this on TC so I think it’s pretty important and interesting.) It’s called HypeHop and it’s an experiment in sponsored video. Most sponsored video appears in front of your YouTube selections like a cold sore – you know it’s there, it’s unwanted, and you know it will take a while for it to go away. For example, this deeply applicable ad appeared as my son was watching Nerf videos, for example, proving that algorithms aren’t always the smartest. Enough. In the current system marketers pay media platforms for their audience. The marketer gets eyeballs, the media platform gets money, and the user gets bupkus. I wanted to try to change that. With a few friends I made something called HypeHop. It basically pays you for watching videos. At this point it’s a proof-of-concept that accepts uploaded videos, a small payment for hosting, and then watches the viewer to ensure they are watching the video. “Watching the viewer?” you ask? Sure. We’re being surveilled every day. Isn’t it time we were paid for it? Viewers currently...

Doom On Switch Gets Anniversary Update With Better Performance: It was kind of a surprise last year when Doom was abruptly announced and then quickly released for the Nintendo Switch. The game had to make some concessions to fit on Nintendo’s lower-powered console compared to its PS4 and Xbox One releases, but porting studio Panic Button did a noticeably good job with a tough task. Now, a year after release, the developer is issuing an anniversary patch to, among other things, help the game run better. Happy 25th Anniversary, @DOOM fans! We got you a little something – an update to DOOM for #NintendoSwitch with increased performance, and you can now add recent players to your Friend List. Oh – And video capture. 🎤💧 — Panic Button (Official) (@PanicButtonGame) December 10, 2018 As explained in the tweet, Doom now allows you to add friends to your friends list based on recent player data, meaning you can befriend or make a friendly rival out of someone you played against in multiplayer. Video capture was also added, which speaks to further optimizations, as video capture apparently uses up a degree of system resources so several games don’t support it. Panic Button is also behind the Switch port of Doom Eternal, the still in-development Doom sequel, meaning that the performance optimizations are likely because of work getting on Doom Eternal being able to transfer backwards. Doom Eternal is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in 2019.

Softbank invests in parking startup ParkJockey pushing valuation to $1 billion: Softbank continues to invest in the future of transportation — this time in ParkJockey, a startup that has built a technology platform aimed monetizing parking lots. And ParkJockey, which was founded in 2013, is already using that capital to scale up. Along with the Softbank investment news, ParkJockey also announced that it was acquiring two of the largest parking operators in North America. The startup, with help from Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Capital and debt financing from Owl Rock, said it had reached an agreement to acquire Imperial Parking Corporation, a North American-based parking management company often referred to as Impark. The agreement follows ParkJockey’s acquisition of parking management operator Citizens Parking Inc. The investment puts ParkJockey valuation to more than $1 billion, reported Miami Herald. Miami-based ParkJockey developed a parking management platform that helps commercial property owners better monetize parking lots as well handle operations at large venues and stadiums. The company’s platform offers features like automatic license plate recognition and pay-by-app, among others.  The company’s app can also be used by drivers to find parking spaces more efficiently. Financial terms of the Softbank investment or the acquisitions weren’t disclosed. The announcement follows an Axios article last week that reported Softbank was backing the startup. The Impark transaction is subject to regulatory approvals. The acquisition is expected to close in the first half of 2019, ParkJockey said.  Softbank’s investment in parking might seem rather, well pedestrian. It’s actually a bet on an automated future from present-day parking management issues like electric vehicle charging, designated areas for ride-hailing and automatic pay as well as a day when vehicles are fully autonomous.

CTRL-labs’ first dev kit is a gesture-tracking neural controller: The race to replace the mouse and keyboard has yielded a lot of weird tech, but as various hardware startups try to find the missing link between what we have now and some sort of embedded brain chip, we’re seeing some fascinating solutions surface. New York-based CTRL-labs just announced its first developer kit that’s aiming to refresh how people interact with computers — an armband that can track a user’s finger movements by measuring electrical impulses. It’s not quite a brain controller, though in practice this type of tech can definitely feel like it’s reading your mind, taking minor finger movements and yielding a surprising amount of insight into the position of your hand and the pressure you’re applying on your finger tips. CTRL-labs’ investors are betting big on the insight this unconventional interface type can deliver. The startup closed a $28 million Series A in May with funding coming from Vulcan Capital, GV and others. The use cases for something like this seem to be a little up in the air at the moment, hence the interest in getting a developer kit out into the wild. There are some more obvious use cases in the VR space, but pushing a theoretical input type on an industry with theoretical appeal obviously isn’t the best basket in which to put a Series A. The system (called CTRL-kit) is, indeed, a developer kit, so there hasn’t been the highest premium placed on miniaturizing all of the tech in the tethered system, but the company tells TechCrunch that the intent is definitely to get into a wrist-worn form factor like a smartwatch in the future. Watch a few of the tech demos and you’ll see what an interesting proposition this is for the wearable of the future. CTRL-kit Think about the link between some...

Google Fit gets improved activity logging and a breathing exercise: Google Fit, Google’ s activity-tracking app for Android, is getting a small but meaningful update today that adds a few new features that’ll likely make its regular users quite happy. Some are pretty basic, like the launch of a Fit widget for your Android home screen, while others introduce new features like a breathing exercise (though that will only be available on Wear OS), an updated home screen in the app itself and improved activity logging. The app got a major redesign earlier this year and in the process, Google introduced Heart Points as a way of tracking not just the length but also the strenuousness of your activities. Those are tracked automatically as you go about your day, but since Fit also lets you log activities manually, you didn’t really get a chance to log the intensity of those exercises. Now, however, you can adjust the intensity in your quest for getting more Heart Points. The other major new feature is the exact opposite of strenuous exercise: a breathing exercise for those moments when you want to calm down. For some reason, Google decided that this feature is Wear OS-only right now. I’m not quite sure why that’s the case, but if you don’t have a Wear OS watch, you’ll just have to figure out some other way to keep calm and bugger on.

Social media for the first time tops newspapers as a news source for US adults: It’s not true that everyone gets their news from Facebook and Twitter. But it is now true that more U.S. adults get their news from social media than from print newspapers. According to a new report from Pew Research Center out today, social media has for the first time surpassed newspapers as a preferred source of news for American adults. However, social media is still far behind other traditional news sources, like TV and radio, for example. Last year, the portion of those who got their news from social media was around equal to those who got their news from print newspapers, Pew says. But in its more recent survey conducted from July 30 through August 12, 2018, that had changed. Now, one-in-five U.S. adults (20 percent) are getting news from social media, compared with just 16 percent of those who get news from newspapers, the report found. (Pew had asked respondents if they got their news “often” from the various platforms.) The change comes at a time when newspaper circulation is on the decline, and its popularity as a news medium is being phased out — particularly with younger generations. In fact, the report noted that print only remains popular today with the 65 and up crowd, where 39 percent get their news from newspapers. By comparison, no more than 18 percent of any other age group does. While the decline of print has now given social media a slight edge, it’s nowhere near dominating other formats. Instead, TV is still the most popular destination for getting the news, even though that’s been dropping over the past couple of years. TV is then followed by news websites, radio and then social media and newspapers. But “TV news” doesn’t necessarily mean cable news networks, Pew clarifies. In reality, local news...

Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Poster Suggests A More Human-Like Hedgehog: The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been a point of curiosity for a number of months ever since Sega confirmed its existence. A lot has been especially made of the film’s choice to blend CG and live action, starring James Marsden and Jim Carrey in key roles along with an animated Sonic. No footage has been released of the movie outside of set shots, meaning there hasn’t been a good look at Sonic himself, until a new teaser appeared today. Courtesy of IGN, the animated movie poster shows a Sonic with decidedly more human-like proportions. The poster shows Sonic kneeling in a preparing-to-run pose and lightning bolts lighting up his silhouette.  It’s…a lot to take in. Sonic the Hedgehog isn’t the only video game-related movie to eschew the cartoonish art of its source material for a more realistic look, as Detective Pikachu did something similar with its first trailer. Sonic is taking it a step further going by this poster, but it remains to be seen how it actually works in the film. Sonic the Hedgehog is still a year away and could look perfectly natural by the time it releases. But for right now, yikes.

US tech giants decry Australia’s ‘deeply flawed’ new anti-encryption law: A group of U.S. tech giants, including Apple, Google and Microsoft, have collectively denounced the new so-called “anti-encryption” law passed by the Australian parliament last week. The bill was passed less than a day after the ruling coalition government secured the votes from opposition Labor lawmakers, despite strong objection from tech companies and telcos. “The new Australian law is deeply flawed, overly broad, and lacking in adequate independent oversight over the new authorities,” said the Reform Government Surveillance coalition in a statement. The tech companies added that the law would “undermine the cybersecurity, human rights, or the right to privacy of our users.” It’s the latest rebuke since the bill’s passing, following an extensive lobbying effort by Silicon Valley to push back on the anti-encryption proposals. The law allows Australian police and the intelligence agencies wide-reaching powers to issue “technical notices” — essentially forcing companies and even websites operating in Australia to help the government undermine encryption or insert backdoors at the behest of the government. Critics argue that there’s little oversight, potentially allowing abuse of the system. And because the notices will almost always be issued with a gag order, any technical notices are served behind closed doors in secret. Companies that refuse to comply with the demands in a technical notice can be served heavy financial penalties. The Australian government won in part by accusing Labor of using scare tactics, saying that the opposition party was choosing to “allow terrorists and pedophiles to continue their evil work in order to engage in point scoring,” said Australian defense minister Christopher Pyne, in a since-deleted tweet. Labor caved in to the pressure, and party leader Bill Shorten instructed his members to vote for the bill. He promised that the party would offer amendments to the law once passed in the...
