Netflix to Cut Apple-Billed Subscriptions for Users Who Still Pay via App Store

Netflix is no longer accepting Apple-billed subscriptions moving forward, moving away from the massive ties to the App Store and its payment channel, now asking for subscribers to update their payments and setup. For those who would not do anything regarding this moving forward, Netflix may cut their subscriptions prompting them to resubscribe again, but this time, on its preferred platforms already. This stems from a significant boycott against Apple's App Store, centering on the infamous commission rate with a 70-30 split with the developer. Netflix to Cut Apple-Billed Subscriptions Moving Forward Netflix is cutting Apple-billed subscriptions after over five years since it no longer allowed new and rejoining subscribers to pay for its Premium access via the App Store. According to Netflix's support website, users in select countries would be prompted by the company to add a new payment method outside the App Store's in-app purchases channel to continue their subscription. However, this is for select regions only, and for those who would not be prompted by the company, their Netflix subscriptions would be cut off and would have to rejoin again, and this time, on a different payment method. Netflix did not reveal when this change would take effect, but the company is making it clear that it would completely leave behind this Apple payment method. Netflix App Store Payments Denied: Update Now While Netflix would not cut their subscriptions in the middle of their period, the end of these users' billing period would mark the end for their Apple-billed Premium accounts. Moreover, users may go ahead with this and avoid rejoining Netflix by updating their payment methods via the Account settings and selecting the 'Manage payment info' option. For those who have already updated their payment info, it is important to note that they need to cancel their subscriptions via Apple to avoid getting billed by the App Store. Netflix, Other Streaming Platforms vs. Apple Almost six years ago, Netflix introduced various ways for iOS users to pay for subscriptions, but this also marked the company's defiance against Apple for their App Store policy which splits the payment between both entities. Through this, Netflix asked subscribers to pay via their website, centering on a direct transaction from the user and the company for subscriptions. It is not the only one, as Spotify also made this move earlier, asking subscribers to pay for their subscriptions via a different channel or through a direct transaction on their website when on iOS. Last year, Spotify also removed the iOS legacy subscribers or those who were still using the App Store's in-app purchase method and were made to resubscribe again. As many companies boycott or denounce Apple's App Store policy, it affects subscribers one way or another, and in Netflix's case, it may have been delayed for over five years but is now ramping up its decision to move away from Cup

Oppo Air Glass 3: AI-powered smart glasses with a GPT assistant, AR, voice calls, and more

Oppo has just unveiled its latest Extended Reality glasses — the Oppo Air Glass 3 is a prototype, which looks like a "normal" set of glasses but holds a plethora of smart features (with more supposedly being worked on). OK, so what is it? On the outside, it's a fairly regular-sized set of glasses with transparent optics. However, each of these lenses is capable of showing you colored images, and Oppo calls this the world's lightest binocular AR glasses. They weigh around 50 g (1.76 oz) and have been designed with comfort and all-day wear in mind. Oppo has done a lot of tech advancements to thin out the frame and provide a solid experience with the thin optical see-through displays. The resin waveguides for the imaging are only 0.88 mm thick, and carry image data from tiny MicroLED projectors that can deliver up to 1,000 nits brightness per eye. The glasses have a refractive index of 1.70 — very close to the 1.5 index of glass — which translates to the reduction of rainbow effects when outside light hits them. ...

Authorities Argue Egon Schiele at Art Institute of Chicago Was Nazi Loot

New York authorities issued an official order last week to seize a work by Egon Schiele from the Art Institute of Chicago. Officials of Manhattan’s antiquities trafficking unit are investigating the circumstances around the work’s acquisition by the museum and its sale history as part of a broader legal inquiry into Nazi looted art, and now claim the work was stolen. The order for the return of Schiele’s Russian War Prisoner (1916) is the latest in a string of disputes carried out by the heirs of the Austrian Jewish collector and cabaret performer Fritz Grünbaum. His surviving relatives are seeking to recover 80 works dispersed from Grünbaum’s collection before he was imprisoned in 1938 and forced to relinquish his assets to Third Reich officials. He died in the Dachau concentration camp in 1941. Various works from the collection, which included 81 Schieles, circulated among art dealers and entered museum collections in Europe after his death. Recorded sales of the works after Grünbaum’s death date back to 1956, when a Swiss art dealer, Eberhard Kornfeld, offered 63 of them for private sale, after acquiring them from Grünbaum’s relative, Mathilde Lukacs-Herzl. Heirs have disputed the legality of Kornfeld’s transactions with Lukacs-Herzel. In the late 1990s, Kornfeld, who died in August 2023 at the age of 99, was questioned about the sale and in 2011, during a case involving another Schiele work owned by Grünbaum, a federal court in Manhattan found Kornfeld’s account credible and ruled the collection had not been “looted” by Nazis, but sold legally by his surviving relatives. The museum has denied the order’s arguments that the work was looted, saying that it has researched the work extensively, citing the 2011 ruling that the Grunbaum collection was sold legally as evidence of its rightful ownership. “Federal court has explicitly ruled that the Grünbaum’s Schiele art collection was “not looted” and “remained in the Grünbaum family’s possession” and was sold by Fritz Grünbaum’s sister-in-law Mathilde Lukacs in 1956,” Megan Michienzi, executive director of public affairs at the Art Institute of Chicago, said in a statement to ARTnews. “If we had this work unlawfully, we would return it, but that is not the case here.” The 160-page order, filed in Manhattan on February 22, details the trafficking of artworks illegally procured by Nazis to the United States. The argument, penned by Matthew Bogdanos, a New York assistant district attorney, and reviewed by ARTnews, centers Kornfeld, the deceased operator of a Swiss auction house, and Otto Kallir, the owner of a New York gallery who died in 1978, as parties in a criminal network. The state argues the two concealed details around Nazi-inventoried art sales as part of their business dealings. The document states the work’s current value is $1.25 million. ...

Supreme Court Weighs Key Cases on Social Media Content Moderation

Weighing on Social Media Content Moderation During oral arguments on Monday, the justices engaged in a challenging discussion tackling questions that have the potential to reshape the internet landscape, affecting not only major social networks such as Facebook and TikTok but also platforms like Yelp and Etsy. TechCrunch reported that the Supreme Court opted to assess two concurrent cases in October, one originating in Florida (Moody v. NetChoice, LLC) and the other in Texas (NetChoice, LLC v. Paxton). Instigated by laws enacted by Republican governors, these legal proceedings impose obligations on social media corporations to alter their content moderation strategies. Florida's Senate Bill 7072 prevents social media platforms from imposing limitations on political candidates or their content, while Texas' House Bill 20 prohibits platforms from censoring or demonetizing content based on user viewpoints. Despite a federal appeals court largely ruling in favor of tech companies in Florida, the Texas appeals court supported the state's position. Republican lawmakers drafted both laws to penalize social media companies for their alleged anti-conservative bias. Although research does not substantiate these claims, conservative users of social media platforms are disproportionately exposed to political misinformation. This discrepancy in content moderation decisions by tech companies may contribute to the perception of ideological bias. Grappling with Modern Internet Challenges The legal systems in Florida and Texas are caught up in a complex web of old-fashioned laws that were created before terms like "tweet" and "livestream" became common. Because laws about the internet are outdated, both tech companies and their critics want clear rules. But, as we've seen from how the Supreme Court handled similar cases before, getting that clarity is tough. During oral arguments, justices spanning the political spectrum expressed doubt about the implications of the two state laws. Justice Sonia Sotomayor raised concerns about the broad scope of the legislation, suggesting it could extend its reach to encompass various non-traditional social media platforms beyond the intended targets. Justice Brett Kavanaugh addressed Florida Solicitor General Henry Whitaker regarding the First Amendment, emphasizing the constitutional protection against the suppression of speech by the government. However, not all justices seemed aligned with the tech industry's stance, as Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito expressed interest in the state's arguments, with Alito questioning whether content moderation equated to censorship. ...

Crew-8 set for March 1 launch to space station

WASHINGTON — NASA and SpaceX are proceeding with a commercial crew mission to the International Space Station later this week, part of a busy schedule of missions to the station this year. NASA completed a flight readiness review Feb. 25 for the Crew-8 mission to the ISS, announcing late in the day that the agency had approved plans for the launch, scheduled for 12:04 a.m. Eastern March 1 from the Kennedy Space Center. That would allow the Crew Dragon spacecraft to dock with the station at approximately 7 a.m. Eastern March 2. Crew-8 is the latest crew rotation mission to the station. It will carry NASA astronauts Matthew Dominick, Michael Barratt and Jeanette Epps, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin, to the station for a six-month stay. The flight will be the first for all but Barrett, who will be making his third flight and second long-duration stay on the ISS. At a media briefing after the fight readiness review, NASA and SpaceX officials said they were working on a few minor technical issues with the Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket. That includes confirming composite panels on the vehicle are properly fastened and studying paint discoloration seen on the Crew-7 Crew Dragon currently at the station that could change the vehicle’s thermal properties on reentry, said Steve Stich, NASA commercial crew program manager. Those open items, he said, did not appear to be major issues. “I suspect we’ll close these out Tuesday or Wednesday.” One previous issue that appears to be resolved involved straps in the main parachutes called “energy modulators” intended to regulate the load on the parachutes as they are extracted from the capsule. Some of those straps did not pull apart as designed on a cargo Dragon mission, CRS-29, that returned in December. ...

Tesla Model 3 Plaid: This Is It

The car company with a performance trim named after a throw-away joke from every 13-year-old’s favorite Mel Brooks film is apparently expanding its EV performance lineup downward with a new Model 3 Plaid on the docket. The Model S Plaid proved no match for Porsche’s Taycan or Lucid’s Air Sapphire on track. As a result, maybe Tesla has taken a page out of the muscle car handbook, putting the big motor from the big car into the small car to go fast. For a company that claims to not have a PR department, Tesla’s PR department works awfully hard. This short (and clearly cleverly orchestrated by Tesla) video posted to social media over the weekend depicting the new Tesla Model 3 Plaid trundling through a small square in Valencia, Spain, is the proof. The car isn’t even wearing real license plates, just a three-dimensional badge that says Model 3 like it might for a manufacturer photo shoot. Spanish police aren’t going to let something without a plate drive around willy nilly. Tesla hasn’t officially recognized that this car exists, though it has dropped some pretty big hints. Obviously as the Model 3 lineup currently lacks a performance variant, we knew one was coming soon, but to see it in production-ready guise wearing a Plaid badge means Tesla is getting serious about it. What do we know about it so far?

My precious! Galaxy Ring looks insanely hot from up close, is going to track your sleep

I wish I can give you the full rundown on the Galaxy Ring, but the truth is I can't. Samsung continues to be incredibly tight-lipped regarding its health-focused smart ring, so we still know next to nothing about it. However, the Galaxy Ring did move one small step towards being a real product here at the Mobile World Congress, where it's available on display behind glass windows. A number of previously unknown facts were indeed shared by Samsung representatives, which enables us to at least start paining the full picture. First things first, so far there seem to be three different Galaxy Ring colors in development: silver, gold and black. They all look fantastic – the Galaxy Ring has an incredibly clean and polished aesthetic that is timeless and easy to blend with any outfit. An interesting fact is that the Ring is slightly concave, in order to be protected from scratches. Such a design decision strikes us as very intelligent, because the product's surface is highly-polished, and such finishes tend to accumulate micro scratches quite easily. The Galaxy Ring will be able to connect to other Galaxy ecosystem devices when that makes sense, such as your phone or smart watch: the former to get data from the ring, and the latter because some watch features will be enhanced by the presence of the additional sensors in the ring. Samsung has stated that the Galaxy Ring's prime focus is sleep tracking, similar to some of the other smart rings out there, such as Oura. So, the Ring is poised to become Samsung's most accurate smart device so far when it comes to measuring common sleep quality metrics, as well as detecting certain sleep-related disorders. Billing the Galaxy Ring as the ultimate sleep tracking device makes sense, because a ring tends to be way more convenient and unobtrusive when sleeping, compared to a watch. 9 different ring sizes will be offered in an attempt to maximize compatibility with as many potential buyers as possible. It's currently unknown what the sizing process will be like. Oura, for example, tends to send out a 'sizing kit' to let a user find their correct size first, and only then it sends the actual ring. ...

Brightest and fastest-growing: astronomers identify record-breaking quasar



Using the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have characterised a bright quasar, finding it to be not only the brightest of its kind, but also the most luminous object ever observed. Quasars are the bright cores of distant galaxies and they are powered by supermassive black holes. The black hole in this record-breaking quasar is growing in mass by the equivalent of one Sun per day, making it the fastest-growing black hole to date. The black holes powering quasars collect matter from their surroundings in a process so energetic that it emits vast amounts of light. So much so that quasars are some of the brightest objects in our sky, meaning even distant ones are visible from Earth. As a general rule, the most luminous quasars indicate the fastest-growing supermassive black holes. “We have discovered the fastest-growing black hole known to date. It has a mass of 17 billion Suns, and eats just over a Sun per day. This makes it the most luminous object in the known Universe,” says Christian Wolf, an astronomer at the Australian National University (ANU) and lead author of the study published today in Nature Astronomy. The quasar, called J0529-4351, is so far away from Earth that its light took over 12 billion years to reach us. The matter being pulled in toward this black hole, in the form of a disc, emits so much energy that J0529-4351 is over 500 trillion times more luminous than the Sun [1]. “All this light comes from a hot accretion disc that measures seven light-years in diameter — this must be the largest accretion disc in the Universe," says ANU PhD student and co-author Samuel Lai. Seven light-years is about 15 000 times the distance from the Sun to the orbit of Neptune. And, remarkably, this record-breaking quasar was hiding in plain sight. “It is a surprise that it has remained unknown until today, when we already know about a million less impressive quasars. It has literally been staring us in the face until now,” says co-author Christopher Onken, an astronomer at ANU. He added that this object showed up in images from the ESO Schmidt Southern Sky Survey dating back to 1980, but it was not recognised as a quasar until decades later. Finding quasars requires precise observational data from large areas of the sky. The resulting datasets are so large, researchers often use machine-learning models to analyse them and tell quasars apart from other celestial objects. However, these models are trained on existing data, which limits the potential candidates to objects similar to those already known. If a new quasar is more luminous than any other previously observed, the programme might reject it and classify it instead as a star not too distant from Earth. ...

Bambu Lab is recalling every A1 3D printer — don’t use them until you read this



Bambu Lab is officially recalling all A1 3D printers (not counting the A1 Mini). The company “strongly” urges owners to stop using it for safety reasons after it was alerted to “unstable temperature readings” that it first traced to a faulty heatbed cable last week, as reported by Tom’s Hardware. After further investigation, Bambu says “less than 0.1% of all the A1 printers sold” are affected by the problem, but it can’t say with 100 percent certainty what the cause is, so it’s offering a full refund to any A1 owner who wants it. The company isn’t recalling any other printers in its lineup, so if you own an X1 series, P1 series, or the A1 Mini that our own Sean Hollister called “almost the easy button” of printers. Here’s a TL;DR of what’s going on: Last week, Bambu Lab found that the design of the A1 3D printer’s heatbad cable could lead to kinks and possible short circuits. This week, it says there may be a separate issue causing heat problems in some printers. In the interest of safety, the company is recalling all A1 3D printers that it has sold, and Micro Center is no longer selling them — Bambu is offering full refunds, $80 vouchers for choosing a replacement, or a $120 voucher for its store if you choose to fix it yourself with free repair parts. And some more detail: The company wrote last week that it hadn’t properly designed the heatbed cable’s strain relief — the fatter part of the cable meant to prevent kinking where it connects — making it too easy to damage and possibly short circuit. But Bambu now believes another, yet unknown issue could be at play for some printers, leading it to its decision to recall the A1. Bambu Lab says that it will take up to 15 business days to process each refund, but if you want to apply the refund to one of its other printers instead, it will give you an $80 voucher to use towards that purchase — or towards a redesigned A1 printer when they’re available “around May.” Alternatively, you can choose to repair the A1 yourself when new heatbeds are ready around the end of March and receive a $120 voucher to use for anything in Bambu’s online store (provided self-repair is legal in your country). Bambu uploaded a video of the replacement process and detailed it in a written tutorial to help you decide if you’re comfortable going the DIY route.

iPhone 15 Pro Max Beats The Galaxy S24 By The Skin Of Its Teeth In The Latest Competitive Speed Test



The Galaxy S24 Ultra might have been able to last longer than the iPhone 15 Pro Max in a previous battery drain test, but Apple’s top-end flagship retains its title of being the speed test king by beating Samsung’s latest and greatest flagship. However, both handsets were ‘neck and neck’ against one another, and it could have been anyone’s day. Galaxy S24 Ultra narrowly misses victory against the iPhone 15 Pro Max by barely three seconds The iPhone 15 Pro Max and Galaxy S24 Ultra represent the very best in flagship smartphone technology, with PhoneBuff returning with a speed test between the two premium competitors. Even with Samsung limiting its titanium-touting titan to just 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, it appears that it made some software improvements to its OneUI because at no point does the handset show any sign of stutter or slowing down as it maintained its pace with the iPhone 15 Pro Max. RELATED STORY Galaxy S24 Ultra Uses An Inferior Titanium Variant Compared To The Grade 5 That Apple Employed Last Year, Reveals New Teardown Unfortunately, some apps are more optimized on iOS than they are on Android, so it is unfair to lay blame on Samsung when it not only used a slightly powerful version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 to compete with the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s A17 Pro but also houses other high-end specifications to complete the package. Similar to the first lap, the Galaxy S24 Ultra managed to stay locked with its latest rival in the second lap, and at no stage does the flagship have to re-open any app, showing Samsung has improved memory management here. Unfortunately, there can be only one winner, and on this occasion, it was the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which finished with a total time of 2 minutes and 54 seconds, with the Galaxy S24 Ultra in close pursuit, finishing the same test with a time of 2 minutes and 57 seconds. While there will be continuous rants from the Android camp, there is a silver lining too. Earlier, we reported about an internal storage benchmark comparison performed between the two smartphones, with the Galaxy S24 Ultra featuring internal memory that was up to 75 percent faster than the iPhone 15 Pro Max, even though the latter uses NVMe onboard storage, so there is something to cheer about.
