Apple’s new HQ is looking more like a spaceship every day
Apple is in the final stages of constructing a mammoth new campus in California to house the bulk of its workers. It's been lovingly called the "Spaceship" for years, and the latest drone flyover of the site shows you why. As per usual, two drone pilots have been conducting flyovers of the facility using DJI Inspire 1 and Phantom 4 quadcopters. They show an outer building that's mostly done, with details like landscaping and solar panels being finished at speed. DON'T MISS: Yup, now the iPhone 7 is exploding https://youtu.be/vXcXYsT5UI8 The first video, filmed by Duncan Sinfield with his Inspire 1, does a good job of showing you around campus. It's filmed either at dawn or dusk, and you get the coolest effect of the entire building -- the glowing facade that really demonstrates the spaceship theme rather well. The landscaping is one of the biggest projects left to complete. The famous Apple iHill is marked out well for the final grade, but the remainder of the inside of the spaceship is still just dirt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWs6VimzsyU Matthew Roberts' drone footage, filmed with a DJI Phantom 3 Pro, takes a closer look at the roof of the building, and in particular the solar panel installs. Apple has made a big deal out of its environmental policies recently, installing wind and solar on the roofs of some buildings, and debuting an iPhone recycling machine to reduce e-waste. The scale of Apple’s new HQ is always difficult to grasp from the drone footage, but the occasional glimpse of tiny workers is enough to remind you how ambitious this project is. Construction will cost around $5 billion — expensive, for sure, but a lot less than Apple’s hundreds of billions of cash sitting offshore. (It’s less than Apple’s back tax bill to the European Union, for that matter.)

Live-streaming pioneer Meerkat has been pulled from the App Store
Meerkat, which last year kicked off the modern mobile live-streaming craze now led by Facebook and Twitter, has been removed from the iOS App Store. Ben Rubin, CEO of Meerkat maker Life On Air, broke the news on Twitter earlier today, calling it a "bittersweet" moment given his company's new release. On Monday, Life On Air revealed that it's been operating a private video chatting app it now calls Houseparty that's designed to facilitate group hangouts in a private, instead of public, context.

Use this brilliant online tool to find Pokemon Go nests in your neighborhood
If you've been an avid Pokemon Go fan since the game launched back in July, you've probably read about nests. A nest is a set location on the planet where a certain type of Pokemon (as well as its evolutions) spawns. For example, if you see multiple Bulbasaurs spawn in the same area over the course of a few minutes, you've likely stumbled upon a Bulbasaur nest. (Lucky you!) RELATED: 15 secret Pokemon Go tips and tricks As of the most recent update, Niantic has changed the way nests work to allow evolved Pokemon to spawn at nests , so there's a chance you'll see an Ivysaur or even a Venasaur at that Bulbasaur nest. At this point, you probably just want to know how to find a nest in your area, right? Well, prepare for a very busy weekend. Earlier this week, Reddit user nmitch3ll created a tool that could help you find potential nests in your neck of the woods. All you have to do is head to this link , find your location on the map and hit the "Run" button in the top-left corner. The site will then scan the area for parks, playgrounds, meadows and other geographical hotspots that often correlate with nests. Here's nmitch3ll's simplistic explanation for how the tool works: "People have seen a relationship to some nests being in locations that are labeled a certain way in OSM (OpenStreetMap). This query gathers those tags and highlights them using overpass turbo." It's important to remember that not every area that overpass turbo highlights in your area is a nest, but the highlighted areas do have a greater chance of being nests. You're just going to have to go out and explore to find out for yourself.
Apple might shut down one of the most successful iMessage sticker packs
One of the more brilliant uses of iMessage stickers won't be around for much longer. The creator of Phoneys — a sticker set that replaces a friend's blue text message bubble with a fake one containing some sort of funny phrase — said today that Apple has asked him to completely change the app before this coming Thursday, or else it'll be pulled from the store. The problem seems to be some combination of Phoneys using Apple's font and style and the company's disapproval of prank apps.

How to get the crazy Pokemon Go hack that lets you walk anywhere on the latest update
Even now as the Pokemon Go app declines in popularity, it's still one of the most widely played mobile games in the world right now. It's also still a top-five app on the US top grossing iPhone apps chart, which is quite impressive considering the heavy competition from perennial App Store leaders. Part of the beauty of the game is that it can go on forever if you want it to and the novelty hasn't worn off for you. Of course, as you progress it gets more and more difficult to the point where you might become frustrated and give up... unless you cheat. Look, we're not saying that cheating is a good thing, but we're also not here to judge. After all, this is just a silly smartphone game we're talking about. But if you're going to cheat, you might as well do it by using the ultimate Pokemon Go hack that lets you walk anywhere without actually moving an inch. And the best part is that you don't even have to jailbreak your iPhone to do it. MUST SEE: The reason this lifelong Android user jumped ship to the iPhone 7 Plus is surprising We first told you about this crazy hack back in August . Long story short, it adds a little joystick to your Pokemon Go screen that lets you control your character as he walks around, and you don't actually have to physically go anywhere. Heaven forbid you get up off the couch for a half an hour, right? The beauty of this hack is that your character's pace is kept at a walk, so you can move around the game and catch Pokemon without triggering any of Niantic's alarms and getting banned. Other Pokemon Go cheats often involve teleporting around the game, which is a sure way to make the ban hammer drop on your account. Some people were worried that this great jailbreak-free hack would be eliminated once the recent Pokemon Go updated was released, but we have good news. The hack still works perfectly, and the video below from YouTube user iCrackUriDevice will tell you exactly how to get it working. Of note, the download you need is available at this link . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1-Np4eEruY
