Last year, Disney announced that it would be launching its own paid streaming service in 2019. The new platform is set to stream all pre-existing and upcoming Disney films and TV shows. A name for the service has not yet been decided but many are calling the new service “Disney Play” or “Disneyflix.”

Disney acquired the majority of BAMTech, a technology provider and steaming giant, to create the subscription service in a 1.58 billion deal. BAMTech powers streaming for MLB, WWE, HBO, and NHL.

A 2012 deal allowed Netflix to stream Disney films, but with the announcement of the new service came the news that all Disney and Pixar titles would be pulled from Netflix in 2020.

Disney wants to produce new original films and TV shows for the subscription service. A live-action Stars Wars series has been confirmed for the subscription service. Disney is also planning to create new shows based around characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe such as Loki and The Scarlet Witch.

The platform will not have any R-rated films, and instead these films will be streamed on Hulu, which Disney owns part of. An official subscription price has not yet been announced but Disney is aiming for the service to cost less than Netflix.

In October of 2016, it was announced that the popular mobile app, Vine, would be shutting down. Twitter bought the video-sharing service back and 2012 and ultimately made the decision to delete it.

The end of Vine sparked overwhelming outcry from the public, with people creating petitions and sending angry letters to Twitter in hopes that the social media giant would bring Vine back. But Twitter refused to relent and the Vine app was shut down in early 2017.

Though Twitter rejected to listen to the public, Dom Hofman, one of the founders of Vine, did not. Hofman announced that he was going to make a second vine app, called “V2”, tweeting, “I’m going to work on a follow-up to Vine. I’ve been feeling it myself for some time and have seen a lot of tweets, dms, etc.”

There was a roar of excitement from former Vine users after Hofman’s big announcement. People were very eager to be able to create more vines.

Unfortunately, On May 4, Hofman tweeted that the second Vine would be postponed for “an indefinite amount of time.” He explained that financial and legal difficulties were the reason for the halt in production.

Recently, a company called ‘VidWorld Labs AB’ created a Vine-style app called V2. Many people downloaded it thinking it was the official second Vine as it had the same name as the app that the vine creators were working on. The internet was buzzing, with everyone discussing the return of Vine on Twitter and Instagram. Even former Vine stars were downloading the fraudulent app and posting on social media about it.

Shortly after the fake Vine 2 came out, the real V2 app released a statement on Twitter, saying “Unfortunately, we are not currently in the app store. That is an impersonation.” They also went on to explain that when released, “V2” will no longer be the app’s name.

The fake V2 only permitted users to sign up using their Facebook or Instagram accounts. Now that it has been confirmed that V2 is not the real Vine sequel, many are worried that their login info to these accounts is being used for the wrong reasons.

New iPhones Released

Tampa Bay, Fla.–Apple has recently introduced three new iPhones: The iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR.

This makes iPhone prices expensive, however, because these three phones grow the iPhone line to eleven generations on the iOS operating system. The ongoing trade war between the United States and China will also impact the growing costs of these phones. Apple continues to build iPhones in China and import parts for the phones from overseas, but the phones themselves are designed in California. Apple is going to face political and regulatory challenges due to the 2018 United States-China trade war, and the proposed tariffs United States President Trump has issued on Chinese imports. Because China is paying more for Apple products, the additional expense will make the cost of the final product more expensive for American consumers.

The cost of the iPhone XS can go from 999 dollars up to 1,349 dollars. The XS Max can go from 1,099 dollars to 1,449 dollars. The XR will be released on October 19, 2018. The price of the iPhone XR would be 749 dollars to 899 dollars.

The new iPhones along with the previous iPhone X will feature the face ID where you can unlock your phone by just simply showing your face which will give the user access to his or her music, games and applications. The iPhones are also getting bigger in size.
