Google Cloud partners explain all the ways that the search giant is getting more flexible, from letting customers reallocate their cloud resources to helping developers pay for their own sales and marketing pushes (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google Cloud partners say that the company has gotten more flexible since Thomas Kurian took over as CEO. That flexibility can be seen in how it gives customers wiggle room when it comes to the finer points of their contracts — like allowing them to take credits that were intended for one Google Cloud service, and allowing them to apply them to other services.  The company has also expanded its outreach to partners, including by giving money for sales and marketing to developers who build soft...

Watch Metropolis’ Cinematically Innovative Dance Scene, Restored as Fritz Lang Intended It to Be Seen (1927)

When it came out in 1927, Fritz Lang's Metropolis showed audiences the kind of wholly invented reality, hitherto beyond imagination, that could be realized in motion pictures. Its vision of a society bisected into colossal skyscrapers and underground warrens, an industrial Art Deco dystopia, continues to influence filmmakers today. This despite — or perhaps because of — the simple story it tells, in which Freder, the scion of the city of Metropolis, rebels against his father after follow...
