  • Second season of Apple TV+ exclusive 'For All Mankind' to debut in February


    The series tells the tale of America's space program in an alternate reality that sees the Soviet Union win the space race.
    Don't you mean the race to the moon because last I remember the Russians did indeed win the space race?

    Nice. How popular are those services though?
    CBS All Access has hit homeruns with their Star Trek shows. Discovery and Picard are both great and there's a 3rd on the way. 
    The upcoming 3rd Star Trek series “Strange New Worlds” will go back to its earliest roots with Captain Pike (James T. Kirk succeeded Pike as Captain).
    Yes, and I cannot wait. Anson Mount does a great job of playing Capt. Pike. He was also great in Hell on Wheels

  • Apple pulls Fortnite from App Store for sidestepping commission fee [ux2]

    When are people going to realize this isn’t about reducing the cost to consumers, this is about getting as much money out of consumers as they possibly can.  Epic and the other companies that are protesting the “Apple Tax” aren’t trying to eliminate or even reduce the cost of being in the App Store for themselves.  What they are trying to do is force Apple, either through their own decision, through the courts, or through legislation, to change the way they charge developers for being in the App Store.  They want to do away with the competition from free apps.  They want Apple to change to an approach where any developer that wants to put an app in the App Store has to pay for it, which in turn will eliminate almost all free apps and almost all developers they may have to compete with.  Or better yet, they want to force Apple to allow, or be force to allow, alternate App Stores on every single IOS device so they can stop having to live with the privacy restrictions Apple forces on them.  Then they can get to what they really want, harvesting user data so they can make the user what they think all users should be – the product rather than the customer.

    Sorry but you are wrong. Epic did lower the price by 20% if purchased through the online payment system. For instance, 1,000 V-bucks, which is roughly equivalent to $10 in-game Fortnite currency, now costs just $7.99.

    Verizon on Wednesday said that it has enabled 5G uploads in all of its current 5G markets in the U.S., though coverage in those areas might be limited.


    And that’s the money quote. May be limited.

    Does Verizon charge extra for 5G service? If so, how much?
    I have head $10 per month for each line that enables 5g. But who knows?  
    The same was said when LTE was rolled out
