HP and Hewlett Packard Enterprise will pay a $25 million settlement to salespeople who sued over messed up pay (HP, HPE)

After a nine-year court battle that began years before Hewlett Packard split into two companies, HP salespeople that sued the company are expecting to receive thousands of dollars in settlement fees. The salespeople sued, claiming that HP's computer systems weren't tracking commissions properly and they weren't getting paid in a timely manner. Complaints about pay for salespeople dragged on for years, long after the company split. In 2017, an HP executive apologized to salespeople about the on...

Netflix investors are 'as blind as Bird Box,' Citron Research says (NFLX)

Netflix posted strong third-quarter earnings and subscriber growth on October 16, but shares tanked more than 36% over the following two months as the broader tech sector came under pressure. After bottoming at $231.23 in late December, Netflix shares have surged by more than 45%. The company's recent rebound is overreacted in the eyes of short seller Andrew Left. Netflix's market-capitalization gain over the past 12 days equals 12 DreamWorks Animations, 12 Lionsgates, 10 Rokus, or 5 Hulus, ...

This Fan-Made Shrek Movie Is A Straight Up Fever Dream

Do you love Shrek and also night terrors? Look no further Everyone is familiar with Shrek. The 2001 DreamWorks hit featuring Mike Myers as the eponymous Scottish ogre who, through the course of the film, became the unconventional hero alongside his noble Donkey (Eddie Murphy), captured our hearts and defined the early 2000’s. Its huge box office success came as a massive shock to DreamWorks, who considered it the ugly sibling of The Prince of Egypt, which was in production at the same t...

Louise Goffin: "I'm Paying Homage to Everything I've Ever Loved"

None Thirty-nine years after she made her first album, the vibrant, slightly pugnacious Kid Blue (Asylum, 1979), Louise Goffin is back with a new one, All These Hellos. It's been a career of overcoming hurdles, living down (as well as up to) the expectations that come with music industry parentage, sometimes taking a step to one side and playing for other people (Bryan Ferry, Tears For Fears), and then coming back center-stage with another strong album. Sometimes, her albums struggle to get...

Sylvain Sarrailh

Sylvain Sarrailh is a French illustrator, concept artist and environment designer working primarily in the gaming field. He has worked with companies like Guerrilla Games, Illumination Entertainment, Rocksteady, Amplitude, Sony Picture Animation, Ubi Soft and Dreamworks. Given the dark and grungy vein of illustration common within that industry, Sarrailh (who also goes by the handle “Tohad”) has an unusually bright and often naturalistic approach. He has recently become the director and design...

Fan-made 'Shrek' is beautifully bizarro

Over contributed to the crowdsourced Shrek-Retold, a full-length, deeply-artistic scene-by-scene remake of Dreamworks' original 2001 animated film. The 90-minute adaptation is a project headed by 3GI Industries, the Shrek superfans behind Shrekfest (their hyper-busy retro website is a must-see). Now, I've admittedly only skimmed the video but it's probably the most "internet-y" thing -- with its surreal mix of live-action, cosplay, and animation -- I've seen in a good long while. (Digg)

Why Some Open-Source Companies Are Considering a More Closed Approach

There's no question that the concept of open-source software has revolutionized the enterprise software world, which spent billions of dollars fighting the mere idea for several years before accepting that a new future had arrived. But more than a few people are starting to wonder if the very nature of open-source software -- the idea that it can be used by pretty much anyone for pretty much anything -- is causing its developers big problems in the era of distributed cloud computing services.

Ben Wheatley Dreams of Manderley, Will Adapt ‘Rebecca’ for Netflix with Armie Hammer and Lily James

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” That’s the iconic opening line of Daphne du Maurier‘s 1938 novel Rebecca, a gothic thriller which largely takes place in an English estate called Manderley. The book has been adapted several times over the years (Orson Welles once starred in a radio version), but its most famous adaptation is the 1940 movie that stands as the only film Alfred Hitchcock directed which won Best Picture at the Oscars. Hollywood has been trying to get another version...

Know Your Limits: The Law of Grandiosity

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from Robert Greene’s new book, The Laws of Human Nature. We humans have a deep need to think highly of ourselves. If that opinion of our goodness, greatness, and brilliance diverges enough from reality, we become grandiose. We imagine our superiority. Often, a small measure of success will elevate our natural grandiosity to even more dangerous levels. Our high self-opinion has now been confirmed by events. We forget the role that luck may have played in the su...
