There was a helpful response on Ars Technica, pointing me to this:
That page allows you to use your Apple ID to link your tv Channels CBS All Access subscription to a CBS account. Once you’ve done that, you can sign into the CBS app in tvOS using the linked CBS account and you’re good to go for live TV beyond your local CBS station in the CBS app, including the live Champions League matches I mentioned in my post (see above). Works perfectly. In macOS (in Safari), you can also add your TV provider. I’m not sure what functionality that adds, but it doesn’t seem to hurt.
Next up: figuring out how the NBC and NBC Sports apps relate to the Peacock app...

I’ve been itching to dig my old IIfx out (how I lusted after those when they were brand new) - this just may inspire me. I have an SE/30 I need to fix the analog board on (probably just needs some capacitors) a passel of SEs and my original Plus. And a brand new 5 pack of PhoneNet adapters - I need to get the gang out for an old fashioned LAN session of Nettek. I dunno why classic macs have been on my mind of late - was cruising eBay looking for a decent used IIci but there wasn’t much that wasn’t grossly overpriced. The cost of nostalgia...

Or… perhaps… and this is like the most crazy and complex conspiracy theory ever… Apple… and hang on to your hat here… actually knows stuff, and wouldn't completely bet their whole damn business on something like this.
I am saying they will now have some organization either raising their price for licensing (possibly), or numerous court battles over patents, etc.
Then they might be forced to "share" what they spent billions of dollars to develop.
One thing you may be missing is the fact that, despite its name, “Arm Holdings” isn’t just a patent-holder — they actively develop IP. They have a roadmap with advances ahead — to be profitable, they need Apple and everyone else to stay on board. They work closely with their customers and they are privy to industry secrets. That’s why it’s unlikely Apple would be able to buy them outright, or even Nvidia, really.The history of Intel and AMD re: x86 64-bit instruction sets is instructive [!] — Intel went in a different direction, so AMD moved forward and did their own specification “AMD64” ... Apple could, if forced to, choose to break away from the ARM roadmap and pursue its own path. In the end, Intel and AMD came to a sort of cross-licensing agreement.

Connecticut’s health department software was out of date and unable to efficiently handle some aspects of the state’s pandemic response. So they hired Microsoft to fix the problems. One aspect of that is ContaCT, which is simply an interface that people who have tested positive can use to provide information for the state’s contact tracers to work with. It doesn’t do any contact tracing itself. It’s basically just a form.
Testing in the US is going to climb and confirmed cases will climb along with it. Hospitals here in the NYC area are making decisions along the lines of, “Do we convert whole buildings over, or just parts of them?” The expectation seems to be that hospitalizations will peak in April or May, so June is a bit past that, but obviously nothing will be even remotely back to normal by then.
In a preemptive response to those who say this is no big deal — the thing is, even if we get lucky and it is seasonal and only 10% of people who actually get it need to be hospitalized, that’s still 10% of a very large number.
