Pluto TV Rolls Out a New Guide

Free TV services are great! Pluto TV is probably the best right now!

Pluto TV is Rolling Out an Updated Guide

Cord Cutters News – By: Luke Boama – “Today Pluto TV rolled out an updated guide to Vizio SmartCast TVs that included some new features including an improved guide.

Now instead of having to scroll through over 200 stations to find what you want, Pluto TV has added categories to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. With these categories, you will now be able to select News, Entertainment, Binge Watch, Life+Style and more to jump directly to the content you want to watch. Pluto TV also updated the on-demand section to make finding movies and TV shows easier.

No word on if or when this new and improved guide will be coming to other devices.

This all comes as Pluto TV recently hit 240 free channels. You can choose from available channels like Pluto TV 007, MTV Pluto TV, Buzzr, CNN, CBSN, Sky News, Court TV, Cake Boss, Comedy Central Pluto TV, and more. The ability to sort the channels by categories will make finding what you want much easier compared to having to scroll through the list of over 200 channels.

Recently, we also learned Pluto TV users are spending more time on the platform than ever before according to ViacomCBS’s CEO and President Bob Bakish. Accord to statements at the UBS Global TMT Conference, Pluto TV is seeing current viewer’s time spent on the app grow far faster than the number of new users. An update like this could make it even easier to spend more time watching Pluto TV.”

Roku Bans Web Browser Apps

Roku has never had A really good Web Browser app. There had been several third party applications that have offered a Web Browser on the Roku platform. However, they’ve never worked very well.

Now, it seems that Roku has banned even these third party Web Browser applications.

I’d like to think it’s because they’re about to prepare their own Web Browser on the platform. But only time will tell.

Soon there will be NO Ports in Smartphones!

People don’t like not having a 1/8 inch jack in their phone, what would you think of NO jack of any kind in their phone?

Apple will reportedly release an iPhone without any ports in 2021

The Verge – By: Chaim Gartenberg – “Noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has a new research note predicting Apple’s next two years of iPhones, and there’s a wild new detail: Apple’s 2021 flagship iPhone will reportedly kill off the Lightning port, but USB-C fans (like myself) shouldn’t get too excited. According to Kuo’s note, Apple won’t replace the proprietary port with USB-C; rather, it will rely on an entirely wireless experience for charging and syncing, via 9to5Mac.

The change would be a big one for Apple, which has relied on the Lightning port for all of its phones since it was first introduced on the iPhone 5 in 2013. And while modern-day iPhones are certainly less reliant on physically syncing data, going to a fully wireless model would have huge ramifications across the tech industry, with everything from charging cable companies to headphone manufacturers being impacted. Obviously, we’re still a long way out from 2021 — Apple’s 2020 iPhones aren’t even here yet — but Kuo does have a good reputation for predicting Apple’s plans, meaning it’s entirely possible that this is what the future of iPhones will look like.

Additionally, Kuo’s note goes into more details about what to expect from Apple’s 2020 lineup, which he notes will feature five new phones. First up is the long-rumored iPhone SE 2, which Kuo says will have a 4.7-inch LCD display and a form factor nearly identical to the iPhone 8.

The fall lineup of iPhones is where things get a little odder. Kuo’s note says that Apple is planning four OLED iPhones, all of which will have 5G. Similar to this year’s phones, there’s reportedly going to be a high-end triple-camera model (which will also feature ToF technology), which will come in two sizes: a 6.1-inch model and a 6.7-inch model. Presumably, these two are replacements for the existing iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

There’s also a lower-end dual-camera model, similar to the standard iPhone 11. But unlike the current lineup, that dual-camera model will also come in two sizes. According to Kuo, the new model (let’s call it the iPhone 12) will feature a 6.1-inch size, similar to the current iPhone 11, but it’ll also come in a smaller 5.4-inch size.”

A Great Discussion of the Future of Tech

You may not care for Glenn Beck, but ignore the source on this one. Whether you like the interviewer or not, the issues discussed are real and thought provoking. PLEASE take the time to watch the discussion all the way through. It is FASCINATING!

“Technology is advancing faster than ever, and it’s not slowing down. This decade was the era of smart phones, streaming, and the internet of things. But with 5G and AI on the rise, high-tech executive Jeff Brown believes 2030 will be a new world. Brown is an early-stage tech investor and analyst who’s seen the modern technological revolution firsthand. He describes quantum computing as a moon landing and 5G as game-changing. He predicts a near future full of artificial intelligence, self-driving cars, wireless surgeries, genetic healing, cryptocurrencies, and more! But with equal advances in encryption hacking and the AI tracking abilities of Google, Facebook, and even China, we must control our own data!”

Disney + User Account Info For Sale Already!

Disney PlusI just recently signed up for Disney +, and probably, so did you! Sigh. Watch out!

Thousands Of Disney+ Accounts Are Up For Sale On Hacking Forums

Forbes – By: Lee Mathews – “Disney’s hotly-anticipated streaming service Disney+ finally launched this week. Despite being open to the public for just a few days, hackers have already hijacked thousands of accounts and put them up for sale on the Dark Web.

Reporting for ZDNet, Catalin Cimpanu discovered several listings for Disney+ accounts on different underground hacking forums. The going rate for a hacked account appears to be somewhere between $3 and $5.

That’s three to four times more than the asking price for a hacked Netflix account. Logical enough, given the excitement around the Disney+ launch.

So how is it possible that these accounts – many of which are just a few days old – have already been taken over by hackers? I haven’t seen any reports confirming the root cause, but it seems likely that bad habits are to blame.

One bad habit in particular: password re-use.

You should never, ever use the same password for multiple websites or online services. Security professionals have been repeating this refrain for years.

One bad habit in particular: password re-use.

Their warnings often fall on deaf ears, unfortunately. To users creating yet another account, it can feel like too much trouble to come up with a unique password to protect it.

When you’re creating a new account – whether for a hot new service like Disney+ or any other – remind yourself that hackers are always lurking in the shadows and ready to attack.

They’re armed with billions of email addresses (likely including yours) and billions of previously-used passwords. Using automated brute-forcing tools they can quickly break into accounts en masse.

Recovering a compromised account can be tricky, too. Once a hacker has gained access they tend to move quickly. They revoke access to authorized devices and then change passwords to prevent users from logging back in. They’ll change the email address associated with an account, too, which stops users from using automated password reset tools to regain access.

If you’re getting ready to sign up for Disney+ – or any other service, for that matter – get yourself a password manager first. Use it to create a unique password and let it remember that password for you.

Otherwise you may find yourself fighting to regain access to your account before you even have a chance to enjoy what you’ve signed up for.”
