Stand Out With High-Quality Content

Over the years, “high-quality content” has held different meanings. The current acceptable standard is that content can be classified as high quality when it is over 1,000+ words, as that is what Google loves. But is a topic with 1,000 words content the only indicator of high-quality content? Of course not. What Is High-Quality Content? Quality content is primarily content that achieves your marketing goal. That might be: Increasing brand awarenessRanking well on search enginesImp...

Unsealed court documents reveal that Facebook knew kids were being tricked into spending thousands of dollars on their parents' credit cards

In 2012, Facebook settled a class-action suit with parents who claimed that their kids were being tricked into spending real money on game items, thinking they were spending virtual in-game currency; the parents said that Facebook had structured its system to allow kids to use their parents' credit cards without the parents' intervention, unlike competitors like Google and Apple, who required password re-entries when a card was re-charged for in-game purchases. When the case was settled, th...

Peter Sciretta’s Top 15 Movies of 2018

2018 has come to a close and I have finally been willing to commit to a list of this year’s best movies. Unlike the rest of the /Film staff, I decided to post a top 15 instead of a top 10, and I’ll explain why. I don’t think this was a great year for movies, but it was a very good one. Many of the films in this list are on nearly equal footing. I recently went back and rated and ranked films through the last decade and a half, and that gives me some perspective. If you were to look at my rating...

Samsung Announces an iTunes App as Apple Tries to Be More Accessible Before Streaming Service Launch

Apple has a new streaming service with original content on the way. If they want to lure in new customers who want to watch, they’ll have to start playing nice with other companies by giving them the ability to play iTunes movies and TV shows, something that has been exclusive to Apple devices for years now. A new announcement from Samsung indicates that’s exactly what Apple is starting to do. Samsung revealed over the weekend that their 2018 and 2019 Smart TVs would support AirPlay 2 or iTunes...

‘Alien: Blackout’ Trailer: Don’t Look Now, But There’s a Xenomorph in Your Phone

By the time Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley wakes up at the beginning of James Cameron’s Aliens, she’s been in cryo-sleep for 57 years. A lot can happen in nearly six decades, and the franchise has begun to explore that era in the form of video games. 2014’s Alien: Isolation was a popular survival horror game that featured Ripley’s daughter Amanda, and as previously teased, that character is returning in a new game called Alien: Blackout – and the first trailer is here. The bad news? Whereas th...

Review: ScreenSaver Start

Sometimes you just want to start your Mac’s screensaver when you leave your desk… Screensavers on the three displays attached to the Mac mini While Apple’s screensaver implementation has allowed users to specify a “hot corner” to activate the screensaver – I’ve had less than successful results with both High Sierra and Mojave on my multi display setup. It turns out that certain third party apps may cause the Mac to ignore “hot corners” for the screensaver to appear. Regardless of ...

Macaulay Culkin is ‘Home Alone’ Again for Google Assistant’s New Holiday Shenanigans

Macaulay Culkin has never been able to escape Home Alone. Even though it’s been 28 years since the holiday classic comedy arrived, it’s still his most famous role. Even though he doesn’t like to make the Home Alone face when he takes pictures with fans, he still knows his lines from the movie very well, and doesn’t mind watching the movie again if there’s a certain girl he’s trying to impress. But apparently his attempts to distance himself from the past couldn’t withstand the temptation of a p...
