green apple: environment, a key priority

With consumers increasingly conscious of their environmental impact and the threat of global warming rising, Apple is flying the flag for sustainability in the technology sector, announcing partnerships with manufacturing suppliers committed to renewable energy. This week, we’re exploring Apple’s stance, and what more tech firms can do to create a greener world… GREEN PARTNERS “To ask less of the planet, we ask more of ourselves,”Apple claims on its website. It’s a bold move, putting the company personally responsible for its environmental impact, and for a technology firm, it’s an unprecedented attitude to have. Indeed, you only need to turn on the news or watch a David Attenborough documentary, like the Netflix series Our Planet, to gain an understanding of the devastating impact our actions are having on the planet, or how…

favreau gives ‘star wars’ fans 1st look at ‘the mandalorian’

Jon Favreau gave fans their first look at the “The Mandalorian” at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago last weekend, previewing the most anticipated series yet from the galaxy far, far away. Favreau’s eight-episode series will debut on the Disney-Plus streaming service on November 12. It’s set in the aftermath of “The Return of the Jedi,” taking place five years after the Rebellion’s victory. Favreau premiered behind-the-scenes clips and some finished footage to attendees. The series stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a lone gunfighter the actor compared to a Western or samurai hero. It co-stars Gina Carano as a character named Cara Dune and Carl Weathers as a bounty hunter named Greef. Werner Hergog and Giancarlo Esposito also co-star. Favreau called himself “a product of a Star Wars imagination” who was eager…

new ‘star wars’ film promises ‘the rise of skywalker’

“No one is ever really gone,” says the voice of Luke Skywalker in the first teaser trailer for “Star Wars: Episode IX,” which audiences finally learned will be called “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” last Friday at a fan event in Chicago. The closely guarded film from director J.J. Abrams will put an end to the Skywalker saga that began over 40 years ago, but even as characters and acto rs have passed on, the footage shown at Star Wars Celebration suggests that as with all “Star Wars” films, death is just a technicality a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Mark Hamill’s Skywalker may have died at the end of the most recent installment but his voice dominates the teaser trailer, telling someone, possibly Daisy Ridley’s Rey,…

how not to break the bank on streaming services

With more TV streaming services than ever before, from newcomers like Disney Plus to stalwarts like Netflix, consumers may feel the ideal viewing experience is finally at hand. Americans have, on average, three streaming video subscription services, according to a recent study of digital media trends by Deloitte. While some have dropped cable and its average bill of around $100 a month altogether, about 43% have both pay TV and streaming subscriptions. Yet patching together a variety of services to get just what one wants isn’t always seamless. Families and individuals can still find themselves with service that doesn’t perfectly suit their viewing habits. And those monthly subscriptions can add up fast. “It doesn’t make sense to pay for a bunch of content you have no interest in watching,” said Bruce McClary,…

netflix: first quarter adds 9.6m new subscribers

Netflix kicked off the year with the biggest subscriber gains in the history of its video streaming service, but forecast a springtime slowdown that disappointed investors. The strong first-quarter performance coincided with the video streaming service’s biggest U.S. price increases and emerging streaming challenges from Walt Disney and Apple, two of the world’s most popular brands. The video service added 9.6 million subscribers worldwide during the first quarter of 2019, topping the projections of both Netflix’s own management and Wall Street analysts. It’s the most subscribers that Netflix has gained during any three-month stretch since the Los Gatos, California, company unveiled its streaming service 12 years ago. The surge announced Tuesday left Netflix with nearly 149 million subscribers through March. Netflix expects to add another 5 million subscribers during the current quarter ending June,…
