It seems like every other day we hear about a new business opening in the Kirkwood Mall. This is no exception to this. See’s Candies is now open for business.

Just in time for the holidays

Let’s be honest, figuring out what to bring to Thanksgiving dinner or what to get your friends and family for Christmas can be tricky. You know what almost everyone likes? Candy.

Save yourself the headache and grab a few boxes to put under the tree or some candy to fill the stockings. At See’s Candies, you can get boxed candies to give to your loved ones for the holidays.

The storefront is next to Riddle’s Jewelry’s new location, across from Scheels.

The business officially opened for the season last week, Thursday, November 10. It’s unclear exactly how long they’ll be staying, but I’m sure it will be over the Christmas holidays.

What kind of candy?

This store is full of boxes and boxes of truffles, chocolate covered almonds, mint chocolates and even pumpkin spiced lollipops. It’s honestly a bit of everything.

I had never heard of See’s Candies, so I did a little digging. It is a national confectionery company founded over 95 years ago in California. From California to North Dakota. — Cared for!


Difficult to find toys this year for Christmas in ND

Here’s what you might not be able to fit under the tree.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – What was once the Yankee Candle store in Williamsburg, is now transforming into an upscale bowling and entertainment center.

The Williamsburg City Council voted unanimously Thursday to award a revenue-sharing incentive to Uptown Alley, a family entertainment center that plans to open in 2023.

Uptown Alley will open at 2200 Richmond Road, the former Yankee Candle store. The city council says the location will include a premium bowling alley, duck bowling, arcade, chef-led restaurant and the latest in audio/video technology.

According to the press release, the incentive granted is a performance-based revenue sharing agreement.
It grants a percentage of the taxes that Uptown Alley will pay to the city over a period of five years. The incentive is capped at $600,000 and will be used for exterior improvements to modernize the building.

“With the current economic challenges, Uptown Alley is truly grateful for the support of Williamsburg as they have been instrumental in helping us move this project forward,” said owner Steven Moore. “We are excited to see how our partnership continues to grow.”

The city’s Economic Development Authority (EDA) will award the incentive to Uptown Alley over time after the business pays its local sales and dining taxes. Officials say the return on investment from local sales tax and meals for the city for the first five years of operation of the business is estimated at more than $1 million.

“The incentive program the City of Williamsburg can offer businesses is a win-win because it attracts new businesses, helps existing businesses grow, and provides new revenue to the city as those businesses grow,” said EDA President Adria Vanhoozier. “This program allows the city to keep some of the taxes that would not have been collected without the opening of new businesses in our community.”

Williamsburg will be the fifth location for Uptown Alley. Other locations are in Chesterfield, VA; Manassas, Virginia; Surprise, AZ; and Changzhou, China.

“As part of our business recruitment efforts, the City is continually studying trends to determine what is missing in the Williamsburg market,” said Mayor Douglas Pons. “Uptown Alley fills a need for more indoor entertainment options in the area. The owners are investing more than $12 million in the project, which will include the renovation of one of the City’s largest commercial assets. We are thrilled to welcome Uptown Alley to the Williamsburg business community.

Experiences have always driven retail, yet many brands are still struggling to understand and implement this transformation in today’s new economy. And now, more than ever, in-store experiences matter.

Nowadays, anyone can buy a product through a variety of physical and digital channels, but associating that product with an experience and establishing an emotional connection has been proven to strengthen a brand’s identity with the customer.

Customers have become more discerning about the brands they want to connect with, and a curated experience is important both in-store and digitally. And when it comes to in-store experiences, music, visuals and scent elevate the shopping experience. But just clicking through a playlist, putting up a sale sign, and spritzing the latest scent isn’t enough to create a polished customer experience. The harmonious alignment of all these facets brings the brand vision and intentional experience to life.

Setting the tone with music and sound
Music has become such an important part of our daily lives that translating a brand’s audio image as an extension of the in-store experience is key to connecting with customers. Gigs sell out in hours, and people crave connection and experience — they want to align with the brands they feel multidimensionally connected to.

The music a brand plays in-store sets the stage for an emotional experience, both inspiring and aspirational, that the brand wants the customer to experience. Music inspires people to linger longer and experience the brand more authentically and creates a stronger connection.

Sound quality also matters more than ever. With the availability of quality home audio, people expect the same high-level sound experience when shopping, dining, relaxing in a hall, or doing just about anything. .

Stores need to think about their sound design so that their music selections sound amazing and convey the full experience.

Brands should consider creating quality custom audio based on the environment layout and floor plan. There is specific intent when selecting flooring, fixtures, paint color and aesthetics, and just as much detail must go into the sound design.

The right enclosure design, placement, coverage, volume levels, and type of look and feel to complement the design of the space are paramount. To expand on this level of detail, a professional sound designer can provide an experiential layout that brings the content to life.

This new list of Malware Dropper apps on the Play Store should be removed now, say security experts / Digital Information World https://sonowebs.com/this-new-list-of-malware-dropper-apps-on-the-play-store-should-be-removed-now-say-security-experts-digital-information-world/ Sun, 30 Oct 2022 08:05:00 +0000 https://sonowebs.com/this-new-list-of-malware-dropper-apps-on-the-play-store-should-be-removed-now-say-security-experts-digital-information-world/ Applications surrounding the theme of malware droppers can be found in a report of millions.

Applications surrounding the theme of malware droppers can be found in a report of millions. And they get thousands of downloads across the board. Experts list rogue apps that should be removed shortly before they end up causing more damage than expected. But the worst part about this whole ordeal is how hard they are to spot compared to everyone else. And that’s what makes it hard for people to catch on and notice immediately.

Many of these apps have endured thousands of installations and continue to perform dubious actions. The new line of apps on the Google Play Store uses means such as fake updates for installing banking Trojans on devices owned by people who had no idea what they were capable of.

The report comes to us thanks to the likes of Bleeping Computers who claim that it becomes much easier over time to include such apps in the Play Store as they don’t have any harmful code that can be spotted immediately. What they do is infect smartphones on Android with various forms of malware that arises after its installation.

Another factor that makes them really hard to spot is how they work with advertisers after being downloaded, so a lot of the normal behavior masks the malicious behavior and you have no idea what’s going on.

That’s thanks to Threat Fabric who went public with the news after spotting the malicious findings and highlighting them in a new report. Cybercriminals are on the loose and now it’s so much easier to infect vulnerable devices than anything else.

The general consensus now is to remove these apps from your system if seen on your Android device. These need to be removed manually at a faster rate than usual. Many apps involve crypto wallets, while a few also contain banking apps.

They are usually targeted and therefore endanger users’ sensitive financial information on infected devices. The list can be downloaded online via the website, but we discuss it briefly below.

They include File Manager, Audio Recovery, Pictures and Videos, Finance Tracker, and Zetter Authentication. So far they have achieved download figures ranging from 1,000 to 100,000 and that is really a lot.

Security researchers conducting the study say they uncovered during such an investigation how a few malware-dropping campaigns massively distributed software like SharkBot and Vultur, which are serious banking Trojans.

The first uses fake login screens so that users’ banking and other credentials are stolen. In the same way, it ends up stealing and disguising the texts that take advantage of your android device. Although it is still causing destruction, the app has not yet received many downloads considering how often it is found in all major regions of the world like the United States, Spain, Australia, UK, Germany, etc.

Then there is another malware campaign called Vultur which is distributed as another top banking trojan application. He uses social media, messaging, etc. to steal credentials belonging to users. But a new variant has also been discovered that actually records things like gestures, clicks and more made by victims on Android phones.

Experts believe that the best way to protect yourself from all of this is to be very careful when installing an app on your device. Consider whether you need it or not, then make sure to read the reviews and take a look at the ratings as well. Also, any app that asks for an update, right after downloads, is worth reconsidering.

Unlike consoles, PC gamers have many options to choose from when it comes to video game stores and customers. Two of the biggest are the Epic Games Store and CD Projekt’s GOG Galaxy. In an interesting move from both parties, GOG Galaxy is now available for download through the Epic Games Store.

Go to the Epic Games store, you can now find a GOG Galaxy app available for download. For the uninitiated, GOG Galaxy is a PC game launcher which allows you to “Discover a hand-picked selection of good old games and great modern releases you can play offline. Build your cross-platform library – launch, play, and manage your games from GOG, Epic Games, and more.

As mentioned in the description, one of the main features of GOG Galaxy is the ability for the client to be used to access other non-GOG games, including from Epic Games Store.

While this addition makes some sense, it’s still odd to see the Epic Games Store PC client and storefront allowing you to download the competing GOG Galaxy game client.

Between now and early November, players can get their hands on two free games (Genesis Alpha One Deluxe Edition and Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Collection) by downloading GOG Galaxy through Epic Games. It will be interesting to see how the relationship between these two competing customers compares over time.

KitGuru says: What do you think of this decision? Do you use GOG Galaxy? What is your favorite PC game launcher? Let us know below.

Nothing just released its first phone months ago, but that’s not stopping the company from establishing a physical retail presence. The company is opening its first Nothing Store at 4 Peter Street in London’s trendy Soho sometime ‘before Christmas’ this year. The company promises a “boutique” rather than the usual tech store experience, and touts design inspired by classic chains like Italy’s Olivetti.

The store will carry the entire current small line of Nothing, including the Phone 1, the Ear 1 and the future Ear Stick. Unsurprisingly, there will be incentives for lining up for opening day – you can get free stuff and buy one of 100 limited-edition Ear Sticks.

The store is a bet for a two-year-old startup competing with audio and mobile heavyweights, some of which (like Apple and Samsung) have much larger retail presences. Although Nothing’s store isn’t big, it’s also in one of London’s poshest areas. While the average retail rent in the city is around £64 per square foot, Soho’s is estimated at just under £150. That’s a lot to spend when you don’t know how customers will react.

This strategy is familiar, mind you. Apple has long focused on opening stores in high-traffic (and sometimes iconic) locations to grab the attention of shoppers who wouldn’t otherwise use the technology, and other companies have used similar approaches. Nothing Stores could theoretically make the brand more recognizable, not to mention bolster its style-focused image.
