Un error en el último parche de Pokémon Go convierte pokémon raros en comunes al capturarlos

Si creías que el bloqueo a mapas de terceros era lo peor de la última actualización de Pokémon Go es porque todavía no has intentado cazar un pokémon raro. El parche viene con un error que cambia las criaturas difíciles de encontrar por bichos comúnes nada más capturarlas. Logras atrapar un Ninetails y ¡Alehop! Ahora es un Ekans.

Apple has finally delivered a fix to its Group FaceTime bug that let users eavesdrop on others with an accidental workaround.

Disable FaceTime Right Now [Updated]

Disable FaceTime Right Now [Updated]

A jaw-dropping flaw in Apple’s FaceTime software allows for users to eavesdrop on others while a call is still ringing, according to 9to5Mac.

The bug works by simply dialing another user, then swiping up and inserting the originating number via the “Add Person” screen before it is answered. FaceTime apparently is thus tricked into believing that a Group FaceTime conference call is occurring,...

The Pixel 3's Big Bug Fix Update Is Here

Google’s software-first design philosophy has brought about some impressive results—like the kind of pictures you can snap with a Pixel 3, but that strategy can also have some negative impacts too, especially when it comes to bugs.
