    Judah Friedlander has a surprise to share at TC Disrupt NY

    You might be curious why Judah Friedlander — standup comedian, actor, writer, artist, activist — is appearing on the Disrupt NY stage next week.

    Slack is down for some users (Update: Slack is back!)

    So if you’re having trouble getting started at work this morning, just know that you’re not alone.

    Anticipation is at full force for this summer’s slate of TV. New “House of Cards” is due soon, and “Game of Thrones” returns toward the end of the summer.

This morning, Netflix put up a full two-minute trailer for the… Read More

    John Oliver reminds us that Net Neutrality is still under siege

    John Oliver has again fired off his quick wit at the new FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and the Trump administration for trying to roll back Obama-era Net Neutrality rules. This isn’t the first time Oliver has addressed the issue of an “open internet,” as he touched on the topic back in 2014 during his fifth episode of Last Week Tonight. In that episode, he identified then-FCC… Read More

  • “The Handmaid’s Tale” is critical to the success of Hulu’s Live TV service

    “The Handmaid’s Tale” is critical to the success of Hulu’s Live TV service

    People tend to think in terms of what they want but don’t have, as opposed to what they have and don’t need. This is poignantly clear in the world of video streaming services. Outright cutting the cord hasn’t trended as quickly as pundits predicted; instead, Netflix, Hulu, HBONow, Amazon Prime and the rest seem to be something that many buyers view as supplementary. But… Read More

    About.com rebrands to Dotdash

    About.com, one of the internet’s oldest and most familiar websites, is about to fully fade to memory. The IAC-based company has been slowly dismantling its content from an all-in-one site to branded vertical sites, including Verywell (Health), Lifewire (Tech), The Balance (personal finance), The Spruce (home and food) and ThoughtCo (education). And today, About.com is ditching its old… Read More

  • Ballz is my new digital enemy and favorite mobile game

    Ballz is my new digital enemy and favorite mobile game

    I’ve played my fair share of iPhone games, but few have taken over my mind and life like Ballz. From Ketchapp, Ballz is about as simple as it is infuriating. It’s a mix between old-school Pong and Threes. The player starts with a single ball at the bottom of the screen and a number of blocks, each with a number, floating at the top of the screen. Pulling back with a finger and… Read More

    Token, with $2.5 million in funding, wants to help you find the perfect gift

    Air Tailor, an ERA-backed startup, offers on-demand clothing alterations

    Almost nobody looks forward to going to the tailor. For one, you have to trek your clothes to and from this place — in metropolitan centers where walking/biking is a primary source of transportation, this becomes compounded. Plus, pricing isn’t always clear at local tailors and turnaround time is anyone’s guess. Enter Air Tailor, a new startup graduating from the… Read More
