‘Super Mario Run’ gets an update, if you’re still playing

The first Nintendo game that came out on smartphones, Super Mario Run, got its first update since launching on Android last month. Assuming anyone’s still rocking and hopping in the mobile Mushroom Kingdom, they can finally track friends down by their Nintendo Accounts.

That’s the, well, middling news, but there’s not much else in the update. Players can get new buildings for their kingdoms, including an 8-bit Bowser Statue, and can display their custom Mii character from Miimoto as their player icon. Android players can earn Game Center achievements now. Oh, and the maximum amount of toads has been increased to 99,999, which might keep you company if you’re the only one of your friends still playing.

But it’s too soon to assume Nintendo is abandoning the game. Unlocking content in Super Mario Run via a single in-game $10 fee earned the title less revenue than expected, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimusha told Nikkei Asia Review. But the more lucrative random-reward “gacha” model in Fire Emblem Heroes, Nintendo’s other smartphone game, risks damaging the company and characters’ reputations. Nintendo has more to come for smartphone games, including synergy with its Switch console. We’ll wait to see the gaming titan’s plans after the release of its fiscal year 2016 earnings report this Thursday.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
