TNT 1831: Netflix Hires Hollywood

Aug 15, 2017, 12:34 AM

One White Supremacist website, the DailyStormer was hosted by GoDaddy until last last night when the site was given 24 hours to move its domain for violating the terms of service by encouraging additional violence. Today, many news outlets are reporting that Google has also refused to host the site. Snapchat released a new Stories feature called Crowd Surf that takes videos recorded at big events and merges them into an interactive viewing experience that puts the viewer in control. Snapchat collects and syncs videos recorded simultaneously from many users at a performance, so the viewer can hit play and switch between the videos as a song plays without being interrupted. Paul Thurrott has obtained a leaked Microsoft memo that reveals how the company plans to deal with the fallout from Consumer Reports's bad reliability rating of all Surface products. The memo also included a chart with return rates for the products included in the Consumer Reports research. Plus, Netflix is hiring away Hollywood, AI is making video streaming more tolerable, and we go hands-on with the latest Project Tango phone, the Asus Zenfone AR.
