Oegstgeest de Lange Voort,

8 new trailers you need to watch: Free Guy, Wonder Woman 1984, Ghostbusters, and more

Boy Genius Report - 4 hours 28 sec ago

We’re nearly there, Star Wars fans -- one week away from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. In many ways, The Last Jedi felt like a sort of ending to the Skywalker saga. But then again, there are three movies in a trilogy. It doesn’t help that The Rise of Skywalker’s plot has leaked online, and there seem to be different leaks that corroborate the same storyline. And things aren’t necessarily looking up for the final film. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go watch it as soon as it launches, something I plan on doing next week in the midst of all the craziness that precedes Christmas.

Until then, however, we have at least three brand new movies hitting cinemas this week that you should be aware of. First up is Jumanji: The Next Level, which will easily win the box office this weekend, although it won’t be able to hang on to that top spot for more than a week. Uncut Gems is the rare Adam Sandler film that people say is so good he should get an Oscar for it. And then we have an unusual Christmas story: Black Christmas. If you’re staying in, by the way, then Ryan Reynold’s action flick 6 Underground is waiting on Netflix for instant gratification.

Good luck finding a credit card that beats this Capital One welcome offer of 200K bonus miles

Boy Genius Report - 14 hours 8 min ago

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.

Please note: the offers mentioned below are subject to change at any time and some may no longer be available.

One of the easiest ways for credit card issuers to grab your interest is by dangling a lucrative welcome bonus, one that promises the instant gratification of lots of rewards miles right up front, as well as points or some other perk as an immediate thank-you gift for signing up.

Of course, that shouldn’t necessarily be the main factor you consider when weighing all the different options for cards you’re confronted with. But sometimes the offers are so big, so near-unheard-of, that they demand attention all by themselves -- and one such pair of sign-up bonuses (the biggest of 2018, in fact) is back, just in time for the end of this year. The cards we’re talking about are Capital One’s two Spark business cards: The Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business and Capital One® Spark® Cash for Business. If you’ve been on the fence about applying for one of these or even just for a new card in general, perhaps this might clear things up for you -- one of those cards is offering a welcome bonus of up to 200,000 miles for signing up and hitting the requisite spending targets. Here’s everything you need to know.

There’s not going to be a ‘Back to the Future 4’

Boy Genius Report - 15 hours 52 min ago

The entertainment industry can create movies and TV shows unlike anything we've ever seen thanks to the incredible advancements of technology. But just as computers become smarter and more powerful, capable of generating complex action sequences and all sorts of special effects, we’re witnessing a rather annoying trend.

Too many ideas are rehashed and readapted, and we have too many sequels. That’s why Matrix and Ghostbusters were revived, why Disney turned several of its iconic animated movies into live-action films, and why Martin Scorsese is making the same mobster movie while criticizing superhero movie makers for repeating the same stunts over and over. And why the latest Star Wars trilogy might prove to be more fan service than innovative storytelling, at least if all those leaks turn out to be correct. With that in mind, I’m kind of thrilled to hear there’s not going to be a Back to the Future 4, as much as I’d have wanted one a few years ago.

AT&T launches 5G coverage in 10 more cities across the US

Boy Genius Report - 17 hours 24 min ago

5G was supposed to be a game-changer this year, but the truth is that 5G coverage remains effectively non-existent for the vast majority of mobile users in the United States. What's more, the number of 5G-enabled phones even available for purchase isn't exactly an extensive list.

But with 2020 right around the corner, we're starting to see an uptick in 5G coverage from a number of carriers. AT&T, for example, launched 5G coverage across 10 U.S. cities today, a list which includes Milwaukee, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Birmingham, Indianapolis, Providence, Rochester, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose.

The Netflix original series The Crown is basically an awards-generating machine at this point for the streaming service. The lavishly-produced, compulsively watchable show about the lives and loves (and secrets) of the British royals has just helped Netflix garner a record haul of Golden Globes nods, with the current third season of The Crown pulling in four nominations announced earlier this week -- more than the series earned during both previous seasons (three nominations in Season 1, and two in Season 2).

Apple and Spotify’s podcasts come to Echo devices in the US

TechCrunch(CrunchGear) - Fri, 13/12/2019 - 23:44

Amazon Alexa can now play podcasts from Apple, making Amazon’s line of Echo devices the first third-party clients to support the Apple Podcasts service without using AirPlay. Before, this level of support was limited to Apple’s HomePod. According to Amazon, the addition brings to Alexa devices Apple’s library of more than 800,000 podcasts. It also allows customers to set Apple Podcasts as their preferred podcast service.

The move is the latest in a series of partnerships between the two rivals, which also included the launch of the Apple TV app on Amazon’s Fire TV platform, as well as the launch of Apple Music on Echo devices and Fire TV. Amazon, in response, has expanded its assortment of Apple inventory to include Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch and more.

To get started, Apple users who want to stream from Apple Podcasts will first need to link their Apple ID in the Alexa app. Customers can then ask Alexa to play or resume the podcasts they want to hear. Other player commands, like “next” or “fast forward,” work, too. And as you move between devices, your progress within each episode will also sync, which means you can start listening on Alexa, then pick up where you left off on your iPhone.

In the Alexa app’s Settings, users will also be able to specify Apple Podcasts as their default player, which means any time they ask Alexa for a podcast without indicating a source, it will stream from the Apple Podcasts service.

Not to be outdone, Spotify also today announced its support for streaming podcasts on Alexa in the U.S.

Of course, Spotify Premium users have been able to use Spotify Connect to stream to Echo before today.

But now, Spotify says that both Free and Premium U.S. customers will be able to ask Alexa for podcasts as well as set Spotify as their default player.

Alexa’s support for Spotify podcasts was actually announced in September (alongside other news) at Amazon’s annual Alexa event in Seattle, so it’s less of a surprise than the Apple addition.

At the time, Amazon said it was adding support for Spotify’s podcast library in the U.S., which would bring “hundreds of thousands” of podcasts to Alexa devices. That also includes Spotify’s numerous exclusive podcasts — something that will give Echo users a reason to set Spotify as their default, perhaps.

Shortly after that announcement, Spotify said its free service would also now stream to Alexa devices, instead of only its paid service for Premium subscribers.

Grading the final tech IPOs of 2019

TechCrunch(CrunchGear) - Fri, 13/12/2019 - 23:34

As the holiday slowdown looms, the final U.S.-listed technology IPOs have come in and begun to trade.

Three tech, tech-ish or venture-backed companies went public this week: Bill.com, Sprout Social and EHang. Let’s quickly review how each has performed thus far. These are, bear in mind, the last IPOs of the year that we care about, pending something incredible happening. 2020 will bring all sorts of fun, but, for this time ’round the sun, we’re done.

Pricing

Our three companies managed to each price differently. So, we have some variety to discuss. Here’s how each managed during their IPO run:

How do those results stack up against their final private valuations? Doing the best we can, here’s how they compare:

So EHang priced low and its IPO is hard to vet, as we’re guessing at its final private worth. We’ll give it a passing grade. Sprout Social priced mid-range, and managed a slight valuation bump. We can give that a B, or B+. Bill.com managed to price above its raised range, boosting its valuation sharply in the process. That’s worth an A.

Performance

Trading just wrapped, so how have our companies performed thus far in their nascent lives as public companies? Here’s the scorecard:

  • EHang’s Friday closing price: $12.90 (+3.2%)
  • Sprout Social’s Friday closing price: $16.60 (-2.35%)
  • Bill.com’s Friday closing price: $38.83 (+76.5%)

You can gist out the grades somewhat easily here, with one caveat. The Bill.com IPO’s massive early success has caused the usual complaints that the firm was underpriced by its bankers, and was thus robbed to some degree. This argument makes the assumption that the public market’s initial pricing of the company once it began trading is reasonable (maybe!) and that the company in question could have captured most or all of that value (maybe!).

Bill.com’s CEO’s reaction to the matter puts a new spin on it, but you should at least know that the week’s most successful IPO has attracted criticism for being too successful. So forget any chance of an A+.

Boy Genius Report - Fri, 13/12/2019 - 23:16

Well, it seems there's one more bit of news related to Samsung's much-maligned Galaxy Fold handset that we're likely going to end the year on. And for many of you who've followed along as Samsung made its first foray into foldable smartphones, this will seem like par for the course when it comes to how Samsung has handled the ... well, let's just say the bumpy rollout of the Galaxy Fold this year.

We told you just yesterday about Samsung Electronics president Young Sohn's assertion at a TechCrunch event that Samsung has improbably managed to sell 1 million units of the Galaxy Fold so far -- a massive achievement no matter how you look at it, considering the phone's $1,980 price tag. Not to mention the botched launch, all the early flaws and design misfires that showed up in the first units, the surprising fragility of the device, and more. Except, not so fast! Just one day later, Samsung found itself in the unfortunate position of having to walk back that declaration of 1 million Galaxy Fold sales, with a company spokesman acknowledging that figure is not accurate.
