for all mankind: taking apple tv+ to the moon and beyond

Whilst Apple TV+ may still be small in comparison to Netflix and Amazon Prime, its string of successful series and breakthrough movies have positioned it as a must-have service for all lovers of immersive, thought-provoking material. One of the streaming platform’s most talked-about shows is For All Mankind - its second season launched in February and it’s just picked up a Saturn Award nomination for Best Fantasy TV Series, cementing its worth. OUT OF THIS WORLD CONTENT There’s no denying that Apple has struggled to make an impact with its highly-anticipated streaming service just yet - so much so that the company has effectively “admitted defeat,” repeatedly extending the free trial period to encourage customers not to unsubscribe just yet. Apple, perhaps, bit off more than it could chew with TV+, releasing…

gop pushes bills to allow social media ‘censorship’ lawsuits

Republican state lawmakers are pushing for social media giants to face costly lawsuits for policing content on their websites, taking aim at a federal law that prevents internet companies from being sued for removing posts. GOP politicians in roughly two dozen states have introduced bills that would allow for civil lawsuits against platforms for what they call the “censorship” of posts. Many protest the deletion of political and religious statements, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Democrats, who also have called for greater scrutiny of big tech, are sponsoring the same measures in at least two states. The federal liability shield has long been a target of former President Donald Trump and other Republicans, whose complaints about Silicon Valley stifling conservative viewpoints were amplified when the companies cracked down on…

the long game: covid changed the way we play, watch, cheer

It’s the predictable rhythm of sports that draws us in. Not so much the results of the games themselves as the steady cadence of the seasons -- the cutting down of nets and hoisting of trophies, the pregame hype and postgame deconstructions, the trade talk and injury crises that envelop each passing year with the regularity of an atomic clock. So, when two NBA basketball teams were hastily sent back to their locker rooms, not to return, after pregame introductions on March 11, 2020, and, then, a day later, when two college basketball teams walked off the floor at halftime and also didn’t come back -- “Game Ppd, pandemic” -- it was a shock to the system. It was one thing for the still-nascent collection of COVID-19 numbers, the interviews with lawmakers and…

drones vs hungry moths: dutch use hi-tech to protect crops

Dutch cress grower Rob Baan has enlisted high-tech helpers to tackle a pest in his greenhouses: palm-sized drones seek and destroy moths that produce caterpillars that can chew up his crops. “I have unique products where you don’t get certification to spray chemicals and I don’t want it,” Baan said in an interview in a greenhouse bathed in the pink glow of LED lights that help his seedlings grow. His company, Koppert Cress, exports aromatic seedlings, plants and flowers to top-end restaurants around the world. A keen adopter of innovative technology in his greenhouses, Baan turned to PATS Indoor Drone Solutions, a startup that is developing autonomous drone systems as greenhouse sentinels, to add another layer of protection for his plants. The drones themselves are basic, but they are steered by smart technology…

apple tv+ to produce masters of the air, the second band of brothers sequel

In 2001, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, who had previously worked on Saving Private Ryan together, created and produced Band of Brothers, an American World War II miniseries based on the non-fiction book by Stephen E. Ambrose that chronicled the warpath a group of American soldiers in Europe during the war. The title of the book and the series was taken from William Shakespeare’s Henry V, in which the titular protagonist used the phrase in one of his speeches. Band of Brothers is one of the best miniseries in the history of television and HBO had a major hit with the show; the show won an Emmy and Golden Globe award for best miniseries. Band of Brothers was so popular that it spawned a sequel series, The Pacific, which aired in…
