The interesting thing about Monday morning is, it was probably a lot that happened during the weekend. The good news is that now you can catch everything you missed from March 23rd to 25th all in one place.
Apple News: Today's Day
Apple is expected to announce its prolonged streaming TV and news services at a 10:00 PT event today. We will cover all the details here at HTG when that happens, but here is what we "know" so far (based on rumors, that is).
First of all, the company's news service is rumored to be $ 9.99 a month and offer users access to over 200 newspapers and dozens of newspapers. There are some big names together for the trip but early reports indicated that other news stores were not as happy with Apple's proposed terms – it wants 50 percent of the tag. It's pretty steep, but if there are more people's eyes on the content, it can still be worth it. According to an early report from 9toMac, newspaper publishers were more than satisfied with the conditions.
Otherwise, we expect to see Apple's streaming TV service today as well. The company has been working with original content for over a year now, which will not surprisingly be the new service. It is also said that it will offer access to other services, such as HBO, for example – for $ 9.99 a month (each).
While there may be other things being thrown in (we all know how Apple loves to make surprises to much
Microsoft and Windows News: Chromium Edge Everywhere
More and more details are starting to appear if Microsoft's move to Chromium for Edge.
- The Verge got an exclusive hands-on look at the first Chromium Edge buildings, where author Tom Warren goes through some of the best features and what to expect. [The Verge]
- Shortly thereafter, the first chrome edge was built We do not recommend that you download it of course, as it is almost impossible to verify that this is a legitimate leak. [The Verge]
- In less interesting but still interesting news, Bing maps received color traffic. small things, you know? [MSPowerUser]
- We can see a floating design makeover to File Explorer this year, this would be interesting, as compared to most other aspects of Windows Explorer is quite outdated. I just hope this new version has tabs. [MSPowerUser]
This Chrom Edge thing is undoubtedly interesting – a custom Edge version that will support Chrome extensions? Intriguing indeed. But as curious as I might be about checking it out, having the idea of downloading a leaked browser with no way to confirm where it came from, makes me feel itchy. It's something I'm interested in, and you should feel the same way. Until there is an official edition, I say that we all live this vicariously via The Verge.
Google and Android News: YouTube's True Traffic Number
YouTube's Web Traffic Report, Stage backlash and hands-on with Maps & # 39; next-time directions were all good talking points from the weekend.
- YouTube obviously accounts for 40 percent of the mobile's mobile traffic. FORTY. Just think how dizzying that number is one minute – it's almost half of all web traffic. To a place. [9to5Google]
- Bearing in mind YouTube, while traffic is great, it's obviously not big budgets. So it interrupts most of them and makes them available for free. [Engadget]
- There's still a lot we don't know about Google's upcoming game streaming platform, and it's alarming for many people, especially those playing games. [Kotaku]
- Gizmodo's David Nield took Google Maps upcoming AR (augmented reality) directions for a weekend tour, which the company originally showed on Google I / O last year. This really seems rowdy, especially in crowded places that can be terribly confusing. [Gizmodo]
- Maps also have the opportunity to add public events to some users. [Android Police]
- Google is currently testing a separate add-on menu, which would honestly be good . Currently, all additions fill either the toolbar or the rubble up the menu, so they are kept hidden elsewhere would be nice. [Techdows]
- In the ultimate cross promotion, NBC shot an entire episode of The Tonight Show with Galaxy S10 +. I can't tell if this is brilliant marketing or pure desperation from Samsung. [Engadget]
This weekend (and Monday morning) offered an interesting mix of news, but the highlight for me is definitely the YouTube mobile traffic number. It makes sense, but what I really would love to know is how much of the 40 percent is driven by young children watching YouTube on their tablets or parent's phone. There is probably no way to draw that information.
Everything else: AT & T's 5G E is slower than 4G, two new switches (maybe)
Sony wants to tell you what's cooking, Netflix is experimenting with weird show orders and why you should avoid the "Florida Man Challenge ". And that's just part of it.
- E3 must not include one, but two new Nintendo Switches. According to a report by The Wall Street Journal (paywall), the company can announce a more affordable model along with a more expensive one. [The Verge]
- A recent study showed that AT & T's stupid "5G E" network is actually slower than T-Mobile and Verizon's 4G network. Why is it not surprising? [XDA Developers]
- Netflix tries different episode orders with a new antology program. Because the storyline of Love, Death + Robots is not linear and each section is a story of its own, the company tries out various episode orders to see which one is best suited to viewers. It's nice. [The Verge]
- Sony is broadcasting a broadcast today at 14:00 PST / 5:00 PM EST, where it will tell us last. This is most interesting because the company was one of the first to return to E3 this year. Now, just give me one last of us part 2 release date, thank you. [The Verge]
- Here's a funny story: A woman tried to frame her sister for a crime, but Facebook's "People You May Know" proposal disappeared her plan. [Gizmodo]
- Finally, let's talk about the "Florida Man Challenge." You shouldn't, and Ars Technica points out why. [Ars Technica]
When I first saw the headline "Why should you clear the" Florida Man Challenge "? I groaned at myself. How could such a seemingly harmless challenge be something I" should not do? "Then I read the story and realized how such a "harmless challenge" could be used as something so much more – it could be used to get sensitive identifying data about you personally (like, you know, your birthday). Ars take on this is pretty good and we should all think on going forward. Good on you, Ars.
But I also want to talk about Sony's event today. If I told you I wasn't completely and completely fanboy excited also about the possibility of a The Last of Us Part 2 release date message (or, you know, more games!), I would totally lie. I have never played a game that was more exciting and encapsulated than the first The Last of Us (I have played it more than 30 times ), and I've never been more Excited for a sequel than this one, anyway, it's not really relevant to what you care about so I appreciate you letting me express my excitement.
