fortnite hits the mainstream

FORTNITE’S INVITE-ONLY BETA PERIOD IS FINALLY OVER If you haven’t heard of Fortnite, (where have you been?!) here’s a quick rundown on the hit video game. It has been referred to by multiple sources as a cross between Minecraft and The Hunger Games. The cartoon style video game’s most popular version involves 100 players paradropped onto an island to search for the best weapons and ultimately to fight to be the last man standing. The game is currently available on PS4, Xbox, PC and now finally on iOS too. The iOS version was originally an invite-only beta, but since early April the game has been available to all iOS users, and it is already making hundreds of millions of dollars. It has become the most watched game on Twitch and YouTube Gaming,…

netflix pulls out of cannes film festival in growing dispute

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos says the streaming service is pulling its films from the Cannes Film Festival. Cannes earlier banned from its prestigious Palme d’Or competition any films without theatrical distribution in France. That essentially rules out Netflix movies. In France, it’s a law that films can’t be released on home entertainment platforms until 36 months after their theatrical release. Netflix films could still play out of competition at Cannes. But in an interview with Variety published Wednesday, Sarandos said he wants Netflix releases “to be on fair ground with every other filmmaker.” Sarandos said he doesn’t want Netflix filmmakers “treated disrespectfully” at Cannes. Last year, two Netflix films premiered in competition at Cannes, prompting outrage from French theater owners and unions.…

samsung electronics estimates 56 percent jump in profit

Samsung Electronics estimated its first-quarter operating profit jumped 56 percent to a record high, likely because demand for memory chips continued to be robust, outweighing lower display sales to Apple. The South Korean tech giant said in its preliminary earnings report that its January-March operating income was an estimated 15.6 trillion won ($14.7 billion), compared with 9.9 trillion won a year earlier. The estimate was higher than expected. Sales rose 19 percent to an estimated 60 trillion won. The company did not disclose its estimated net income. It will announce breakdown figures among businesses and more details at the end of this month. Analysts said Samsung likely recorded lower profit in its display business that supplies OLED screens for Apple’s iPhones but strong demand for memory chips outweighed weaker display sales. Samsung unseated Intel…

big brother is watching the nhl game, faster than ever

NHL executives, coaches and players are quick to say the game is faster than ever and there is technology available to track how quickly players skate and how hard they shoot. Vegas Golden Knights general manager George McPhee calls it the “next wave” in the evolution of the top hockey league in the world, but what happens to that information is secret for now. “I don’t tell people what we do,” McPhee said as his Pacific Division champion team prepares for its playoff opener against the Los Angeles Kings. Younger, faster — and cheaper — players are pushing out older, slower — and more expensive — veterans to kick the pace of the game up a notch. When Radim Vrbata announced he was retiring after this season, the 37-year-old Florida Panthers forward acknowledged…
