Apple settles in slowdown case, more Stadia features incoming?
This is cnet and here are the stories that matter right now.
Apple has agreed to pay up to $500 million to settle a class action lawsuit that accused the tech giant of slowing down older iPhones in order to encourage people to buy the latest and most expensive new models.
Apple faced a wave of backlash after acknowledging in 2017 that its iOS software slowed down the performance of some older iPhones.
At the time, Apple apologized for its lack of transparency and offered battery replacements.
After a limited launch in 13 markets, AT&T TV is available nationwide on Monday.
It's designed to replace DirecTV or traditional cable TV for the package of live TV channels, including local such as ABC and Fox, as well as cable channels like ESPN, TNT, Nickelodeon, and HDTV.
HBO is included with all packages and customers will be upgraded to HBO max at no additional charge.
When that service launches in May, and just like similar premium live TV services aimed at cable TV cord cutters, such as YouTube TV, it starts at $50 a month.
And finally, an update to stadia on Android last week reportedly shows that some long awaited features are coming to the cloud based gaming app.
An examination of the code in the Stadia App update shows that YouTube streaming, family sharing, and the free tier of the service are on the way according to 9to5Google.
There's no telling exactly when these features will go live, but this does provide insight into how they might work when they do.
