TikTok swipes a new CEO, straight from Disney streaming

TikTok, the popular short-video app that has also drawn national-security and privacy concerns, has a new high-profile CEO from Disney, Kevin Mayer.

Mayer will also be chief operating officer of TikTok's Chinese parent company, ByteDance, and report to its founder and CEO, Yiming Zhang, the company announced Monday.

He led Disney's streaming business, which launched Disney Plus in November and has already emerged as a threat in the increasingly competitive streaming-video arena, with 54.5 million subscribers.

Mayer was also known for his role in building Disney through mergers, including the industry-changing 2019 acquisition of 21st Century Fox's TV and film business that created an entertainment behemoth.

TikTok's app features short videos, many with music and dancing, that has become a favorite of younger people and is known for its goofy, light-hearted feel.

Fact check: TikTok a security threat used by hackers and child-traffickers?

However, it has been the focus of U.S.  national-security concerns because of its Chinese ownership. A U.S. national-security agency is reviewing ByteDance's purchase of TikTok's precursor, Musical.ly, while the U.S.

military branches have banned the app from government-issued phones. Government officials have in recent years cracked down on Chinese companies, including telecom giant Huawei. There is concern that Chinese companies may share data with the Chinese government.

TikTok and Huawei deny this.

The federal government has also fined TikTok for breaking children's privacy laws, and privacy watchdogs recently filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission saying the company was still violating the law.

” everyone else, I've been impressed watching the company build something incredibly rare in TikTok – a creative, positive online global community – and I'm excited to help lead the next phase of ByteDance's journey as the company continues to expand its breadth of products across every region of the world,” Mayer said in a statement.

He leaves Disney a few months after the entertainment giant named a longtime executive, Bob Chapek, to replace the well-regarded CEO Bob Iger. Mayer had been regarded as a possible Iger successor.

Disney said Monday that Rebecca Campbell, another Disney veteran, will succeed Mayer as the chairman of the streaming and international business, and also announced Josh D'Amaro, the president of Walt Disney World Resort, as the successor to Chapek's old job as head of parks, experiences and products.

If you want a strong feature-length story that doesn’t waste a minute, Edith Finch is the one you need.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was a massive game on other platforms and is even bigger on Switch. The visual downgrades were expected, but the removal of the gray filter present on other platforms arguably makes the Switch version look better overall.

The brilliantly rendered cutscenes, deep character customisation and fine-tuned fighting mechanics make for a title that is easy to pick up but hard to put down. This is another case of a game that makes one wonder just how much developers can do with Nintendo's diminutive console.

Fans of fighting games and Dragon Ball a should definitely consider picking this one up.

Donut County is perfect if you're looking for a short, relaxing, funny puzzle game.

50% off – was $14,99, now $7,49 until 28th May 2020

The Switch’s eShop is saturated with bucket loads of high-quality content. This is great in one way, of course, but stumbling across hidden gems within it will get tougher as time goes on. Gorogoa is one such gem; a puzzle game quite un any other that deserves your attention.

It is a little on the short side, but the creativity that has been put into its design, and the effect it will have on you during your time exploring its gorgeous world, is something that you’ll want to experience. If you’re looking for something new to try, this would be an excellent choice.

50% off – was $14.99, now $7.49 until 28th May 2020

Several years on, there’s no denying the cultural and developmental impact Gone Home has had on the game industry.

Both as a near-perfect exercise in interactive storytelling and an example of how to handle complex and very real ideas in a game, only Life is Strange has ever come close to matching its significance.

While there still isn’t much ‘game’ to be found here, the story you unravel through exploring an empty home will stay with you long after you’ve put down your Switch. Essential.

And with the growing trend of games plummeting to mere cents, here's our sub-$1 pick for a super cheap game that's worth the memory space it takes up on your Switch…

90% off – was $9.99, now $0.99 until 1st Jun 2020

As a loving tribute to JRPGs and '80s pop culture, Saturday Morning RPG has rough edges a-plenty and even more bright ideas. It can frustrate and baffle, particularly if you're not au fait with the period, but it's always keen to invite you into its world.

Keep an eye on this page as we update it removing old deals and cycling in new bargains. If money's no object, be sure to check out our list of the Best Nintendo Switch games, period. Happy gaming!

Gavin loves a bit of couch co-op, especially when he gets to delegate roles, bark instructions and give much-appreciated performance feedback at the end. He lives in Spain (the plain-y bit where the rain mainly falls) and his love for Banjo-Kazooie borders on the unhealthy.

Forums, news, and merch are all there.

Ford wants the Bronco to compete against the Jeep Wrangler, a staple in the off-road world, and steal away some sales, too.

But to do that, there needs to be the same robust community felt by Wrangler owners and fans, and it looks Ford is doing precisely that.

The Dearborn automaker, setting its sights on the dusty trails of America's wilderness, has named its first nationally recognized and certified online Bronco community – TheBroncoNation.com.

Tennessee State Parks Offering Free Guided Walks on March 21 for Anyone Who Needs Fresh Air

The Annual Spring Hike is a great way to get outdoors. Though we may not be traveling far and wide these days, or going anywhere near confined spaces, doesn’t mean we can’t get out. In fact, Tenneesse State Parks may have the perfect solution for everyone: Free guided hikes.

On Saturday, March 21, Tenneesse State Parks will be offering visitors the chance to walk alongside some of its best guides at its annual Spring Hike.

“Our annual Spring Hike is a great opportunity to shed the winter blahs, make new friends and explore Tennessee State Parks' natural side,” the parks explained in a post.

Today, I have forgone Tiny House Tuesday and simply shared a walk in my yard with you. I will have a new Tiny House Tuesday video to post for next week.

GORGEOUS CRAFT IDEAS We are ready to share ideas on how to decorate your home on a budget! Let’s start from a collection of ideas on how to turn an old jar

The site offers a ton of features such as a robust forums platform, a place for the latest news, and a membership map that'll highlight Bronco communities, trails, events, and more.

You can check out the map now, and see several gatherings already there, but we're doubtful what they'll look with so many summer car events canceled due to the coronavirus.

Members can also create round-up events, with the site giving a ton of leeway on what registered members can schedule, such as trail clean-ups, local meetups, and more.

The Latest Bronco News:

  • 2021 Ford Bronco: Everything We Know
  • Ford Bronco, Mach-E Face Production Delays Due To Coronavirus Shutdown

There's an online store that sells Bronco Nation patches, stickers, T-shirts, and snapbacks. It's a small selection – for now.

The site will also host customer stories, how-to guides, video tutorials, and featured builds while giving members the opportunity to engage with Bronco and off-road experts.

It offers a lot and will have to compete with already well-established Bronco forums for an audience. Still, as the only recognized and certified online Bronco community, you can bet Ford will push new owners to it.

A well-designed site is excellent for enthusiasts, but it does little if the new Bronco isn't here. However, that should change soon. Ford was supposed to show it off at the 2020 New York Auto Show, but the coronavirus led to the event's cancellation.

Last year, Ford said we'd see it this spring, which is a promise the automaker can still fulfill. Ford hasn't been shy about making the Bronco a true off-roader, but it's only part of the equation for the off-road enthusiast.

There needs to be community, too, and it looks Ford hopes to help capitalize on that.
