HBO Game of Thrones Piracy

HBO can’t do anything to stop Game of Thrones piracy

By on May 21, 2015 at 6:05 PM.

HBO can’t do anything to stop Game of Thrones piracy

Try as it might, HBO simply can’t keep Game of Thrones piracy at bay. Despite HBO’s best efforts as of late, which have included going after Periscope users and even bars holding public viewings of the show, the demand for GOT is simply too overwhelming to keep piracy in check.

This week’s most recent episode was reportedly downloaded over 3.5 million times in just a 24-hour period, setting a new record in the process. So even with HBO Now subscriptions presumably doing quite well (the iOS app is the 8th highest grossing app on the App Store), GOT related piracy is seemingly a force that can’t be stopped.

McDonald’s is insanely desperate and this picture proves it

There’s a rule in political campaigns that if you’re defensively explaining yourself all the time, that means you’re losing. If that rule holds true in the fast food world, then McDonald’s must really be in a world of hurt right now. Harry McCracken posted a picture on his Twitter account that shows McDonald’s has started creating paper placemats at its restaurants whose sole purpose is to debunk nasty Internet rumors about its food.

Apple Car Rumors

What Apple’s failed HDTV plans tell us about an Apple Car

What Apple’s failed HDTV plans tell us about an Apple Car

For anyone who thinks that Apple releasing a car is all but a sure thing, the lessons from Apple’s now-abandoned efforts at developing an HDTV should not be ignored. The Wall Street Journal this week detailed how Apple spent nearly a decade researching and prototyping HDTV sets before opting to abandon the idea altogether. While Apple could have undoubtedly released a branded HDTV if it wanted to, it decided not to after struggling to come up with compelling features that would have differentiated its own HDTV from rival sets.

The arc of this story is not wholly surprising or even unique; Apple spent a few years and a whole lot of money researching a product before realizing it wasn’t worth pursuing. As Steve Jobs once said, ” I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

And yet, people still seem to be looking at the mythical Apple Car as all but a sure thing, all the while ignoring the fact that Apple constantly researches new technologies and products that, more often than not, never see the light of day.

Android user switches from a flagship phone to a $75 cheapie… and he’s never been happier

You don’t need a high-end flagship phone to have a good experience — in fact, it turns out you can be perfectly happy with a dirt-cheap device. Engineer Abhishek Anand writes about his recent experience downgrading from a flagship Sony Xperia ZL smartphone to a $75 Moto E that he bought on Flipkart. The bottom line is that he’s much, much happier overall with his dirt-cheap phone than he was with his flagship device. More →
