Disney

The biennial D23 conference in Anaheim, California was full of exciting news for fans of Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a panel dedicated to the upcoming streaming service Disney+, the company announced a wave of new shows and spinoffs, and shared details and trailers from previously announced series. From the first first trailer for the Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian to Marvel Studios’ three new Disney+ series, there’s a lot of ground to cover. Here’s everything we learned.

BGR - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:46

Although the wait between Marvel Cinematic Universe movies can be excruciating for fans of the franchise, Marvel Studios is going to have an opportunity to fill in the gaps with shows on Disney+. Four of those shows -- The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision, and Hawkeye -- were officially announced at Comic-Con International in June, but studio head Kevin Feige had even more to reveal at Disney's D23 Expo this week.

FAA warning to idiots who add weapons to their drones: Expect a $25,000 fine

BGR - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:01

There is a rite of passage, it seems, for a certain kind of person who acquires a drone. First, buy said drone. Have fun experiencing the novelty of playing with it. After that, see what you can get away with adding to it -- which, for some people, unfortunately, means adding everything from weapons to flamethrowers to god knows what else and then posting the insanity to YouTube.

It's gotten to the point where the Federal Aviation Administration has now decided to weigh in, with a no-nonsense warning the agency has just published that threatens a $25,000 fine for any idiots that try this in the future.

How to stream Xbox One games on your Windows PC

The verge - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:00
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge

Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs play pretty well together. So well, in fact, that you can stream Xbox One games onto your PC.

Why would you want to do this? Perhaps because you prefer your monitor to your TV. Or maybe your Xbox One is on the other side of the house, and you just want to wirelessly stream to your PC instead of buying a 50-foot HDMI cable to physically link the two together.

There is a catch: unlike PlayStation 4’s Remote Play and PS Now, two features that let you stream from anywhere, the Xbox One console and PC need to be on the same network. Still, it’s a pretty cool trick. There are only a few simple steps that you need to get through in order to get your console’s feed sent to your PC.

Deadly ‘super’ Salmonella outbreak linked to Mexican cheese, US beef

BGR - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 04:51

Coming down with a nasty Salmonella infection can easily sideline even the healthiest of people, but it's when the bacteria show resistance to common treatments things start to look particularly scary.

A drug-resistant strain of Salmonella is at the center of a new report from the Centers for Disease Control, and its spread has been linked to both dairy and meat products from the United States as well as Mexico. A slow-growing outbreak of the bacteria has been traced to over 250 confirmed cases of illness and 60 hospitalizations, as well as two deaths.

BGR has partnered with The Points Guy for our coverage of credit card products. BGR and The Points Guy may receive a commission from card issuers.

I’m a frequent guest at InterContinental Hotels Group properties for a number of reasons, most of which revolve around how well the hotel chain takes care of repeat guests. You can sign up for IHG’s free membership program, for example, to access discounted room rates, and the chain’s portfolio is also big enough -- it includes Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and InterContinental hotels -- that I can usually find somewhere to stay wherever I go that’s part of the brand.

Disney+ will give subscribers four simultaneous streams and free 4K

The verge - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 02:43

Disney’s upcoming Disney+ streaming service is shaping up to be quite the deal. According to CNET, the service will launch on November 12th with support for four simultaneous streams and 4K included, all for the base price of $6.99 a month. Subscribers will also be able to create and manage up to seven profiles on a single account.

That will make it highly competitive with Netflix, which raised its prices earlier this year and has in place stricter limitations on simultaneous streams. Netflix now costs $9 a month for a standard definition plan with only one available stream. If you want HD streaming, you need to pay $13 a month, and that gets you two simultaneous streams. For 4K and four simultaneous streams, it’s $16 a month. (The...
