The interesting thing about Monday morning is that a lot has probably happened over the weekend. The good news is that now you have everything you need from 23-25. March in one place, can catch up in one place.
Apple News: Today's Day
Apple is expected to be its long-priced streaming television and news services at a recent PT event at 1
Initially, the company's news service is charged $ 9.99 a month and provides users access to over 200 magazines and dozens of newspapers. There are some big names for the ride, but earlier reports said other news agencies were not so happy with Apple's proposed terms – they want 50 percent of the profit. That's pretty steep, but if more people see the content, it can still be worth it. According to 9toMac's first report, magazine publishers were more than satisfied with the conditions.
Otherwise, today we also expect Apple's streaming TV service. The company has been working on original content for over a year, which will not be the start of its new service. It is also said that it will provide access to other services – such as HBO – for $ 9.99 a month (each).
Other things could be thrown in (we all know how much Apple loves to end up with surprises), that's the basic idea of what we expect to see.
Microsoft and Windows News: Chromium Edge Everywhere
More and more details are being leaked about the move of Microsoft to Chromium for Edge (19659010) The Verge got an exclusive glimpse into the first Chromium Edge builds, in which writer Tom Warren It guides you through some of the best features and expected features. [The Verge]
This Chromium Edge thing is undoubtedly interesting – a custom Edge version that supports Chrome extensions. In fact fascinating. But as curious as I might be to try it out, the idea of downloading a "leaked" browser without confirming where it came from makes me itch. That's something that interests me and you should think the same way. Until there is an official release, I say that we all live this video vicariously through The Verge.
Google and Android News: Insane Traffic Numbers from YouTube
YouTube's web traffic report, Stadia Backlash, and upcoming directions from Maps directions were all good talk points from the weekend.
- YouTube appears to make up 40 percent of mobile Internet traffic. FOURTY. Just think how staggering that figure is for a minute – that's almost half of all Internet traffic. To a Website [9to5Google]
- Speaking of YouTube, the traffic is big, but obviously the big budget originals are not. Therefore, most of them are canceled and provided for free. [Engadget]
- There is still much that we do not know about Google's upcoming game streaming platform, and that's a problem for many people, especially those who play games. [Kotaku]
- Gizmodo's David Nield took advantage of Google Maps' upcoming AR routes (augmented reality) for a weekend twist that the company had featured on Google I / O last year. This seems very radical, especially in crowded places that can become terribly confusing. [Gizmodo]
- Maps can also add public events for some users. [Android Police]
- Google is currently testing a separate menu for extensions, which frankly would be. Currently, all extensions are displayed either in the toolbar or at the top of the menu, so it would be nice to hide them somewhere else. [Techdows]
- In the ultimate cross-promotion, NBC shot a complete episode of the Tonight Show with the Galaxy S10 +. I can not say 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 YouTube's mobile numbers. It makes sense, frankly, but I'd really like to know how much of those 40 percent is carried by young children watching YouTube on their tablets or their parents' phones. Too bad that there is no way to pull the information .
Anything Else: AT & T 5G E is slower than 4G, two new switches (maybe)
Sony wants to tell us what's cooking, Netflix is experimenting with weird show commands and why you're the "Florida Man Challenge." "should avoid. And that's just part of it.
- E3 can not bring one, but two new Nintendo switches. According to a report by The Wall Street Journal (paywall), the company may announce a more affordable model and a more expensive model. [The Verge]
- A recent study has shown that AT & T's stupid 5G E network is actually slower than the 4G network of T-Mobile and Verizon. Why is not that surprising? [XDA Developers]
- Netflix is trying out various episode jobs with a new anthology show. Since the story of Love, Death + Robots is non-linear and each episode is a story of its own, the company tries different episode sequences to find out which best suits the observers. That's neat. [The Verge]
- Sony is broadcasting a game today at 2:00 pm PST / 5:00 pm EST in the state of the game, providing us with the latest information. This is very interesting as the company was one of E3's first companies this year. Well, just give me a last release date of Last of Us Part . [The Verge]
- Here is a funny story: A woman tried to frame her sister for a crime, but Facebook's "People You May Know" proposals defeated her plan. [Gizmodo]
- Finally, we talk about the Florida Man Challenge. You should not do it, and Ars Technica points out why. [Ars Technica]
When I first saw the headline for "Why you should stay away from the Florida Man Challenge," I moaned to 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 so much more – it could serve to get sensitive identification data personally (as you know, your birthday) .Ars & # 39; hiring is pretty Well, and we should all think about how to move forward, good for you, Ars.
But today I would also like to talk about the Sony event, if I had said that I would not be completely and totally enthusiastic even the possibility of releasing The Last of Us Part 2 (or more gameplay!), I would totally lie, I've never played a game that was more exciting and exciting than there It's The Last of Us (I've played it out more than 30 times), and I've never been so excited for a sequel to this one. Anyway, that's not really relevant to anything that interests you. I am glad that you express to me my excitement.
