10 Reasons to Have a Library Card

For many of us, the library is not a place we remember anymore. If I ask my friends right now about it, they would not even know where one is located. Some might not even be able to guarantee that one exists. I conducted a survey at the front door of the grocery store where a library was located within walking distance and got the following results. Last Time You Went to The Library Within the last 12 months: 15.7% Within the last 5 years but longer than 12 months: 7.8% Longer than 5 years: 76...

Apple's expensive new Magic Keyboard case makes the iPad Pro feel more like a laptop replacement than ever before

  Apple's Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro, starting at $299.00, makes the iPad Pro feel much more like a laptop — albeit for a high price. The Magic Keyboard's deep key travel, integrated touchpad, and lap-friendly design represent a major improvement over Apple's previous iPad keyboard. But, there are other options out there that appear to offer a comparable experience for significantly less.

Sarah Cooper — known for her impressions of Donald Trump on TikTok — just landed a Netflix deal

For writer-comedian Sarah Cooper, the pandemic hasn’t been so terrible. In fact, by making the best of a terrible situation — in this case, opening a TikTok account earlier this year, and proceeding to lip sync to the often-bizarre ramblings of Donald Trump — she has become an outlet for a country that has often found itself asking while watching a Trump presser: “Is this real, what I’m seeing?” Now, in addition to the millions of online followers she has amassed since March, Cooper — a Jamaican...

So you probably won’t even bat an eye when when we tell you that the highest paid actor of 2020 doesn’t even have a movie coming out this year.

‘Hamilton’ Was a Huge Hit for Disney+ in July, Surprising No One

Hamilton is one of the biggest Broadway shows ever, so it makes sense that it’s also been a big hit on Disney+.

Watch the trailer for Netflix’s new family space drama about a mission to Mars

As deep space missions and Mars colonies continue to shift from science fiction to potential near future reality, it’s not surprising to see Hollywood think about different types of stories to tell about space exploration. Away, a new series from Netflix premiering on September 4, looks like that kind of story. The show stars Oscar-winner Hilary Swank, and is created by the people behind Parenthood and Friday Night Lights. It’s a show about an astronaut mission to Mars – but it’s clearly a...

Apple refuses to allow major gaming apps from Microsoft, Google, and Facebook onto the App Store, and the fight just went public (FB, GOOGL, AAPL, MSFT)

Apple refuses to allow major gaming apps from Microsoft, Google, and Facebook onto the iPhone and iPad App Store. The reason, Apple said, is because those apps provide access to games that haven't been rated by Apple's review guidelines. "Our customers enjoy great apps and games from millions of developers, and gaming services can absolutely launch on the App Store as long as they follow the same set of guidelines applicable to all developers," an Apple spokesperson told Business Insider, "inc...

Original Content podcast: ‘The Umbrella Academy’ returns for a messy-but-delightful second season

The first season of “The Umbrella Academy” had its flaws, but empathetic portrayals of its seven superhero siblings (all adults bearing the emotional scars of an upbringing under their strict adoptive father Reginald Hargreeves) more than made up for its meandering plot. In season two, which recently launched on Netflix, the Umbrella Academy has been transported to Dallas in the early 1960s, where the Hargreeves must once again try to repair their familial bonds while also averting a nuclear ...

Martin Scorsese Will Shoot ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ in February 2021

The behind-the-scenes saga of Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon has been a bit of rollercoaster. The pic, based on the true story of a series of murders of wealthy Osage people in the early 1920s, was originally set up at Paramount and was supposed to start shooting in March 2020. Of course, the coronavirus destroyed that March shoot date, and then Paramount got cold feet about the film’s ballooning budget of $200 million. Apple TV+ then swooped in to save the project. Now, the movie...

Federal judge approves ending consent decrees that prevented movie studios from owning theaters

A federal judge has approved the Department of Justice’s efforts to end the Paramount Consent Decrees — 70-year-old court orders that prevented movie studios from engaging in a variety of anticompetitive behaviors, including ownership of movie theaters. U.S. District Court Judge Analisa Torres cited the rise of streaming services like Netflix as one of the reasons for her decision: Motion picture distributors that are not subject to the Decrees have entered the market since the 1940s — most s...
