Pokémon GO shouldn’t have full access to your Gmail, Docs, and Google account – but it does

 When you use Google to sign into Pokémon GO, as so many of you have already, the popular game for some reason grants itself (for some users, anyway) the highest possible level of access to your Google account, meaning it can read your email, location history, pretty much everything.

Legendary Sound Designer Jory Prum Passes Away At 41

New submitter loren writes: It is with much sadness that I report that legendary sound designer Jory K. Prum, who worked on more than 120 video game titles, passed away April 22, 2016, at age 41, from injuries suffered in a March traffic accident. (Disclaimer: I am a long time friend of Jory and his family.) Here are some personal recollections from family, friends and colleagues… Also, a list of his game credits are on MobyGames. This post doesn’t do him justice, but I found news of his loss conspicuously absent on Slashdot.
Back in 2006 a Slashdot article about the game Bone apparently drew a comment from Jory himself (“Funny, I’m recording the dialog for Bone 2 right as I read this!”) and in 2004 the same account weighed in on an article about long hours at Electronic Arts. Wikipedia also reports that in 2001 Jory created a voice for Pixar’s Oscar-winning short “For the Birds,” and in 2014 recovered the aging audio for the classic point-and-click adventure game Grim Fandango.
