As part of new restrictions on sexual content, Google is banning what it calls "compensated sexual relationships (i.e. sugar dating)," from its Android app store, starting September 1st, 2021. Google’s wording on its inappropriate content policy isn’t live yet, but on Google Play, even now, there are plenty of sugar-daddy-style apps that fit this description, including Elite Millionaire Singles, SeekingArrangement and Spoil. (Many of these apps are already unavailable on iOS.)
This is unlikely to stop the existence of these apps and networks, however, but as is often the case with removed games and apps in the past, devout sugar daddies, mommies and their fans will be able to either sideload the app (without secure Google-approved updates) or use web apps on Chrome or their web browser of choice.

The Nuratrue brings automatic audio personalization to true wireless headphones.
Nura might be a relatively new name in headphones, but the personalized-audio specialist is already revealing its third model: the Nuratrue. They’re wireless earbuds you can tune precisely to your listening profile.
The ability to create personal hearing profiles is Nura’s whole thing, but according to James Trew, Nura’s is the simplest and most reliable. Just pop the buds in your ears, walk through the profile creation process in the app and the headphones do everything else. James really did hear the difference. Whereas “unpersonalized” buds may be technically balanced on a graph, when your hearing isn’t perfect, Nura can fill in the gaps. Continue reading.
Watch Cassie the bipedal robot run a 5K
