disney + launches - and what it might mean for apple

LONG-AWAITED STREAMING SERVICE FINALLY MAKES DEBUT Have you sampled Disney+ yet? Yep, that’s right: as of approximately 12am ET on November 12, when Disney “flipped the switch” on Disney+, the eagerly-anticipated streaming service has been showing off its wares. It’s now available across the United States, Canada and the Netherlands, on almost every platform. But the stars of the show are, of course, the productions themselves, with both classic Disney content and intriguing new offerings awaiting viewers. FIRST… THE BASICS As aforementioned, the above three countries already have Disney+, and this coverage will gradually expand, with Australia and New Zealand getting the service from November 19. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Ireland will all have to wait until March 31, 2020 to gain access. Presuming you’re in a territory where…

disney snow white and the seven dwarfs

that’s a very different question. It does, though, tempt a few of us to dream about what could be possible if these titans did formally link up their platforms in some way a few years from now. Instead of Apple and Disney actually merging with each other, could we at least see the giant of devices join forces with the giant of productions to create a near-invincible ‘super-Netflix’? Anything seems possible for these swaggering juggernauts in the years to come – and if such a partnership does ever happen, it’s well worth remembering that you first saw it suggested in this very magazine.…

high-speed internet shortage a big concern in rural nebraska

Nebraska’s rural areas are struggling with a major shortage of high-speed internet, and people who live there are likely paying more for service than their urban counterparts, according to a new report commissioned by state lawmakers. The report by the Rural Broadband Task Force says just 63% of rural Nebraskans have access to fixed, high-speed broadband service capable of handling downloads at 25 megabytes per second or faster. That’s the speed typically recommended to watch high-definition movies, use video-chatting services and download large data files. Most other rural areas have internet access, but at much lower speeds and with fewer providers to compete and drive down prices. And some remote corners of Nebraska still have no fixed service, forcing residents to use expensive, satellite-based internet or their cellphones. “There’s no real business case for…

spacex launches 60 more mini satellites for global internet

SpaceX launched 60 mini satellites Monday, the second batch of an orbiting network meant to provide global internet coverage. The Falcon rocket blasted into the morning sky, marking the unprecedented fourth flight of a booster for SpaceX. The compact flat-panel satellites — just 575 pounds (260 kilograms) each — will join 60 launched in May. SpaceX founder and chief executive Elon Musk wants to put thousands of these Starlink satellites in orbit, to offer high-speed internet service everywhere. He plans to start service next year in the northern U.S. and Canada, with global coverage for populated areas after 24 launches. Last month, Musk used an orbiting Starlink satellite to send a tweet: “Whoa, it worked!!” Employees gathered at company bases on both coasts cheered when the first-stage booster landed on a floating platform in…

super powered: tesla zero-emission technology

With Tesla continuing to innovate in the automotive industry with eco-friendly, low-emission vehicles for businesses and consumers, we take a closer look at the company’s impact on the environment and explore its future plans for our roads, our homes, and our skies... SUSTAINABLE According to some, buying a Tesla is the best thing you can do for the planet if you want to reduce your carbon footprint and help to reverse the effects of global warming. Indeed, not only will you be reducing your reliance on fossil fuels, but you’ll be helping to lower the costs of batteries and helping to make a 100% renewable energy grid more affordable. The more demand there is for electric vehicles, the cheaper Teslas and other vehicles will become. “I think it’s probably fair to say…
