You can request new PokeStops and Gyms for Pokemon Go

Pokémon Go has gotten me to explore just-around-the-corner places I'd never otherwise think to check out, and for that, I am thankful. But depending on where you live, you might not be so fortunate with Niantic's predetermined real-w...   read

PopCap aims for the moon, ends up with Bejeweled Stars

It's actually been 6 years since Bejeweled 3 and a cool 15 since the series' first iteration, even if I still can't reliably spell Bejeweled correctly. One of the reasons King is worth $6 billion is its match-3 Candy Crush, which hadn...   read

Zynga might be worth less than its office
