A ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie Will Be Coming To Netflix In October

Face Detection System Helps Lead Police To A Murder Suspect

Chrome Will Soon Make Those Notification Request Prompts Less Annoying

We’re sure some of you have come across certain websites while using Google Chrome where you are prompted if you want the site to send you notifications.

2019’s iPhones Might Ship With A USB-C Charger

Apple is slowly making the transition to USB-C across its devices. All of its MacBooks have seemingly ditched legacy ports like USB 3.0 and the DisplayPort in favor of Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C.

Netflix To Start Testing Human-Curated ‘Collections’

How do platforms like YouTube and Netflix recommend videos to watch? This is largely based on algorithms in which it looks at the videos you’ve watched in the past and tries to recommend other videos and movies that it thinks are in a similar vein. How accurate are these recommendations? Sometimes they can be pretty spot-on, but are they necessarily the best way to go about it?

Spotify Extends Its Free Trial Period To 3 Months

One of the differences between Apple Music and Spotify would be its free trial period. Apple Music offers a 3 month free trial, while Spotify offers just one. However, this is kind of understandable because Spotify has a free and ad-supported listening tier, meaning that in theory, users will be able to “try” Spotify for as long as they like before they make the switch to Spotify Premium.


Apple Patent Hints At 5G Plans And A Metal Oxide Gas Sensor For The Apple Watch

The Apple Watch currently supports LTE, but given that 5G is expected to be the future of mobile connectivity, we imagine that in the future, Apple will most likely release an Apple Watch that will support 5G, and thanks to a recently discovered patent by Patently Apple, it seems that Apple has actually patented such a device.


Apple Card Is Showing Signs Of Wear Only After One Month

The Apple Card has been released and many Apple customers are already signing up for it.

The ‘Uncharted’ Movie Just Lost Its Fifth Director

It’s really starting to feel like Sony’s Uncharted movie may never happen.

Disney+ Will Offer Four Simultaneous Streams At 4K At No Additional Costs

Disney+ will be launching towards the end of the year and while it does have the advantage of playing home to some very well-established franchises, there is no doubt that there will be many comparisons made to existing services such as Netflix. However, it seems that one of the ways Disney+ plans on competing would be price.


Is This Our First Look At The Apple Watch Series 5?

Face ID On The iPhone 11 Will Support Multi-Angles For Easier Unlocking

One of the problems with facial recognition systems like Face ID on the iPhone is that you need to more or less stare directly at the phone for it to be unlocked.
