Warner and NetherRealm today confirmed that Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition will be releasing on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita and Xbox 360 but most likely not the upcoming Xbox One. The ultimate version of the game come with all DLC packs, which Warner say are worth over $120. The DLC characters feature Lobo, Batgirl, General Zod, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna and Mortal Kombat's Scorpion. In addition to all these characters, the Ultimate Edition also includes 40 character skins and 60 STAR Lab missions. When NetherRealm boss Ed Boon was asked about the Xbox One version he replied "Um.... I wouldn't sell that 360 copy...", heavily indicating that the game will not be coming to Microsoft's new console. Whilst it is strange that the game is not coming to the Xbox One, I'm sure there are numerous legal reasons and business decisions behind it. Maybe we will never know why it's not coming there but fortunately there are plenty of other platforms that it will be available for. To be honest, I don't really think that this is that good of a deal. The only reason I can see people getting it is so that they can have a version for their PS4. Other than that, I think that everybody who wanted Injustice probably already has it! Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition will be releasing on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita and Xbox 360 on November 12th in NA and November 29th in EU.

There are many reasons why visual content is becoming more widely used in online marketing, including these 19 statistics. However, it's especially important for nonprofits because every person who supports, fundraises for, donates to, and is impacted by your organization is a story worth sharing to connect others to your mission. And also, let's not forget: Some of the most compelling content, more often than not, includes visuals. There are many nonprofits setting the example for using visual content in their social media, email, and website engagement strategies. To give you some examples, I've highlighted 10 nonprofits that are implementing visual content in unique ways using Pinterest. 1) Personal Ink (P.INK): Uses Pinterest as Its Website The P.INK Foundation uses Pinterest as its main website to which it sends all traffic to from its different marketing channels. The organization uses consistent branding as well as ways to connect with it directly via email and other social channels. 2) The Gates Foundation: Shares Favorite Videos The Gates Foundation shares its favorite inspiring videos on its Pinterest account, including several TED talks by both Bill and Melinda Gates. This serves as a good reminder that Pinterest isn’t only about sharing photos, but that it can also be a great way to share your stories using videos as well. 3) The Trevor Project: Promotes Merchandise Merchandise is a great tool for brand awareness. The Trevor Project dedicates a board to its “Trevor Gear,” including T-shirts, wristbands, and buttons, all with the Trevor Project's branding. 4) ASPCA: Thanks Its Sponsors The ASPCA uses Pinterest for a number of things, including thanking its sponsors, like West Elm and Subaru. This is a phenomenal way to show appreciation to those supporting your organization. It also gives your sponsors something to share to their networks so you can leverage their audiences as well. 5) Operation Smile: Highlights Celebrity Ambassadors Operation Smile has a dedicated board to those celebrities who support the organization, including those who have donated, volunteered, and attended its events. 6) Charity: water: Focuses on Unique Fundraisers Charity: water highlights its fundraisers on its “Creative Fundraising” board. This is an ideal method to show appreciation for your fundraisers and also lead by example and inspire others to be creative in how they fundraise. Like the sponsors, board fundraisers will be sure to share the pins of their campaigns to their networks. 7) American Red Cross: Shows History of Organization Educating your audience about the history of your organization can seem like a giant task. The American Red Cross, though, has a dedicated board sharing some of its history, including when the organization started and the different disaster relief events it's supported ov. 8) Jolkona: Highlights Trips to the Field Reporting from the field is a fantastic way to connect your supporters to the impact they are making. Jolkona highlights pictures and videos from its travels and events on a dedicated board. 9) Life Foundation: Shares Important Life Insurance Stats Sharing bite-size tips and statistics is simple on Pinterest. The Life Foundation has a variety of boards on different topics, including “Life Insurance 101,” to provide all the facts you’ll need to know about life insurance. 10) Grist: Spreads Awareness of Environmental News Grist shares environmental news on its website, but it also educates its audiences on how to be environmentally conscious. The group has a “Green Your Home” board with expert advice regarding how to reduce your carbon footprint. Got an interesting Pinterest board of your own, filled with amazing visual content?

The frequency of attacks that the infamous Syrian Electronic Army carries out may correlate with the number of President Obama's public statements about Syria and its civil war. Researchers at Recorded Future, a firm that analyzes publicly available data to assess and predict cyberattacks, call the link a "remarkable correlation." See also: Syrian Electronic Army: If U.S. Attacks 'We Will Target All of It' To put it simply, the more Obama talks about Syria, the more the Syrian hackers strike American media targets. It's a full-blown propaganda war. In fact, when Obama discussed military action in retaliation against the alleged chemical attack in Damascus, the SEA ramped up its campaign against American media, hitting the New York Times, Twitter and others.

Peter Guber is one of the most successful yet grounded business leaders I have a pleasure of calling a friend. There are many sides to Peter and chances are you may know him from one of his many distinguished ventures, - Chairman and CEO of the multimedia Mandalay Entertainment Group - Past president of Sony Pictures - Producer of popular motion pictures including Batman, Rain Man, The Color Purple, just to name a few - Co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Golden State Warriors - Author of the best-selling book Tell to Win - Professor at UCLA School of Business In this special edition of Revolution, hosted by the Pivot Conference, Peter and I sat down to discuss his experience in taking traditional business models and modernizing them for the connected economy. Most notably however, Peter also explores the differences in competing for the present versus competing for the future. When you compete for the future, you are simultaneously earning market share through customer relationships while also chasing a vision…a vision that leads you to new horizons beyond the ordinary. Competing for the moment tends to produce a culture of management where scale, efficiencies and optimization reign supreme. The difference is that competing for the future tends to result in a culture of leadership and innovation. History shows that businesses that focus on a higher purpose outperform those that dwell on the bottom line. Perhaps it’s time for all of us to compete for the future…today. I think you’ll find Peter’s thoughts refreshing…I also found them inspiring. Use code “BrianNetwork” to save 30% when you register to attend Pivot in New York.

We’re getting a better idea of what the iPad 5 may look like, courtesy of Sonny Dickson. The blogger recently posted a plethora of new high-resolution images that reportedly show the fifth-generation iPad in all its glory. As you can see, the images show a tablet much thinner than the iPad with Retina display. In addition, this model comes in space gray. This is the same color that is available on the iPhone 5S. There is no way to confirm these images, of course. However, it’s important to note that they are very similar to those leaked elsewhere in recent weeks. Apple is likely to unveil the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 at a media event on Oct. 22. As usual, we’ll keep you updated. Read more...More about Apple, Tablet, Ipad, Leaked Images, and Tech

It’s never too early to start the new iPhone rumors, and the latest one focuses on a feature coveted by many fans of the device: a larger screen. The prediction comes from market research firm DisplaySearch in a message posted to its site on Monday. According to intel gathered by DisplaySearch, Apple may be planning to release a 5.7-inch iPhone in the second quarter of 2014. See also: iPhone 5S vs. the Competition Citing research based on Apple’s Asia supply chain, analyst David Hsieh wrote: Introduction of the iPhone 5S and 5C was the latest example that Apple has been slow in adopting the latest display technologies. While 5-6” FHD resolution displays are rapidly growing in the smart phone market, the iPhone has stayed with the 4” 1136×640 screen for over a year and a half. [...] Based on supply chain research, we believe Apple is planning to revamp nearly all of the displays in its products over the next year.

Foursquare rolled out a number of updates Wednesday that bring real-time recommendations to the service. Now when you check in to a location you’ll be given recommendations on what to do there. For instance, the app might let you know people love the tomato soup, or tell you that the bar you're in has half-priced beer from 3 to 6 p.m. everyday. See also: Top 25 Free iPhone Apps of All Time Real-time recommendations have been available for select Android Foursquare users for a while now, and will be gradually rolling out to iPhone users starting Wednesday. Also in Wednesday’s update is a new Nearby tab so you can quickly toggle between friends located close to you and friends worldwide. Nearby was previously part of the “Happening Near You” section at the top of the screen, and showed you what friends might be in the area — but not where they were located. Earlier versions of Foursquare offered similar Nearby/Worldwide toggling functionality, however, the feature was removed in an update last year.

Online advertising revenue in the U.S. topped $20 billion in the first half of this year, an increase of 18% from the same period a year earlier, according to a new report from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB). Some of that growth was due to increases in display and search spending, but the biggest chunk appears to have come from increases in mobile ad spending. IAB found that mobile revenue more than doubled from $1.2 billion in the first six months of last year to $3 billion this year, an increase of 145%.
