    Apple News+ ?

    I got an email saying my subscription to the service is confirmed. I’m getting a free 30 day trial after which they’re going to charge me $10 a month. The email looks authentic, but I didn’t sign up for it. I didn’t even know apple had a video news service. Anyone else getting this?

    Lord of the Rings 4k. Any News At all

    Band of Brothers - Any news of a 4k release?

    Seems to me that Band of Brothers would be awesome in 4k. It was hugely popular so potential sales shouldn't be an issue. Tom & Steve did Private Ryan in 4k & BOB is vastly superior and would fetch premium pricing. Does it make too much sense for Hollywood to do this? BTW, saw that William...

    Best TV DVD News of 2017

    Maybe rehashing an old thread, but I think the best 2017 TV news was the release of Coronet Blue and It's About Time. Those two were totally unexpected and a boost to those tv sixties fans who have given up hope on releases from that decade. what do you think was the best of 2017? In your...

    Good news from Apple about older iPhone battery life and iOS slow down

    I was kind of surprised by the news I just saw about Apple apologizing about the battery wear and the iOS slow down to compensate for an older battery. I’m not surprised they apologized and got in front of it before it got more out of hand as a PR issue. What did surprise me is a new battery...
