Last night, Apple announced its latest original series heading to Apple TV+: ‘Ted Lasso’ starring Jason Sudeikis. The comedy is based on the character of the same name from the viral NBC Sports ads. The show will air on August 14.

The character Ted Lasso is a college football coach from Kansas. He is hired to coach an English football team, naturally having no experience of soccer.

Upcoming TV+ releases include the ‘Dear’ docuseries and the ‘Dads’ documentary film. The Ted Lasso announcement stretches Apple’s announced TV+ schedule into August. Apple TV+ just debuted its first animated comedy, the musical ‘Central Park’ show, to much critical acclaim. Central Park boasts a 93% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The first two episodes of Central Park are available to stream now, with new episodes added weekly.

To get a taste of what to expect from Ted Lasso, here’s one of the old NBC promo spots.

Here’s how an unknown TikTok clone topped the App Store charts

Published

on

here’s-how-an-unknown-tiktok-clone-topped-the-app-store-charts

Been on the App Store over the past few days? You might have noticed a curious new free iPhone app in the number one spot called Zynn. As it turns out it’s a TikTok clone that’s going after users of the popular app in the US. So how did it just beat out the massively popular TikTok in the App Store charts? A pyramid scheme that pays people to use it and refer friends…

Reported by Mashable, Zynn doesn’t seem like just a short-term scam dressed up as a TikTok clone but rather a very well-funded TikTok copycat actually looking to steal its market share. As it happens, Zynn developer Owlii/Qianyun Zhao was acquired by a multi-billion dollar Chinese company called Kuaishou.

Just this past December, Kuaishou was valued at $28 billion in a financing round that included some of the biggest Chinese tech companies like Baidu and Tencent. The company earned $5.7 billion in revenue last year.

So it seems Zynn is no small effort. Notably, TikTok recently crossed 2 billion downloads globally, so what has Zynn done to create such massive traction to reach the number one spot in Apple’s US App Store? Created a pyramid scheme that pays its users to download, use, and refer the app.

If you download Zynn and sign up, one of the first prompts you’re greeted with is a pop-up that informs you that $1 has just been placed into your account. Refer a friend to Zynn and you’ll make $20 bucks. For every five friends you refer, you get an extra $10. Scroll through the Zynn video feed and you’ll also accumulate points which transfer into pocket change, adding to your monetary totals.

Here’s how it looks:

There is also an aggressive rewards and invite feature. Earn small amounts of cash watching videos. Earn a lot more for inviting friends to do the same. pic.twitter.com/9TcsY7sFi1

The caveat is it appears cashing out rewards doesn’t really work…

As Turner Novak, a general partner at Gelt Venture Capital, pointed out on Twitter, Zynn seems to be a pyramid referral scheme. Even the options presented when you’re ready to withdraw your “Zynn earnings” appear to purposefully make it difficult to take your money and walk away.

Now that Zynn is gaining attention, time will tell if Apple will allow it to remain on the App Store with its pyramid scheme design.

9to5rewards:-still-time-to-win-the-2020-iphone-se-from-incipio

Readers still have plenty of time to enter our latest giveaway on 9to5Rewards. We’ve teamed up with Incipio for the release of its new biodegradable iPhone case collection to reward one reader with the 2020 iPhone SE (64GB). Head below to enter and get a closer look at the eco-friendly lineup of cases available for both the new iPhone SE and iPhone 11/Pro models. 

Cases for iPhone SE

iPhone SE users can do a lot more than just protect their device with the Organicore line by Incipio. Readers can help reduce emissions with Incipio’s new plant-based cases for iPhone. Each case in the Organicore collection is 100% biodegradable, which of course translates to minimal waste/environmental impact. The new iPhone case offers a great environmentally-friendly alternative to the typical plastic cases that are piling up in landfills.

The new line from Incipio has a relatively short composting timeline of only six months to two years, and at $39 doesn’t compromise on design, drop protection, or price point either.
