We are currently dealing a lot with the corona pandemic. Even if the number of cases is slowly leveling off, authorities still want to develop smartphone apps to support them. However, the apps have not yet worked reliably, as certain functions in the apps are restricted by the security restrictions of Android and iOS. Apple and Google currently want to develop a uniform solution and publish an API for contact tracking.

Animal Crossing: New update after huge criticism

After a game update for the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the function was implemented so that until after Easter you could find colorful Easter eggs in many places and spots on the entire game map, and use them to create new content for your inventory. After players complained that too many Easter eggs were produced so that they couldn't catch any more fish, for example, Nintendo helped with an update and reduced the number of items. However, the eggs will continue to appear more frequently on the Easter holidays.
