Netflix passes 500 million installs on Play Store

0 comments

The Play Store doesn't provide very precise metrics for app installs, but it does give us general milestones of their success, and Netflix just reached a major one. The ubiquitous streaming service has now reached 500,000,000 installs — that's 500 million, if you don't care to count the commas or zeros.

Netflix's next quarterly financials have yet to be published (they should be in the next few weeks) but the company's been an unstoppable juggernaut with unceasingly rising revenues and a recent explosion in net income.

'Semi-Conductor' browser experiment makes you the maestro of an AI orchestra

0 comments

Have you ever wanted to conduct an orchestra? Okay, probably not — or at least, not that you'd admit. But if the idea of waving your arms around in private to the tune of an AI-powered symphony tickles your fancy (and how could it not), Google's latest Semi-Conductor browser experiment could be your literal jam.

It works simply enough: Fire up the experiment in a browser, give it access to your webcam, stand far enough back that your outstretched arms fit in the frame, and start conducting (or, in my case, flailing).

Weekend poll: How often do you use Google's Discover feed?

0 comments

Discover, a rebranding for the familiar content list formerly known as "Feed," seems to be rolling out to a wider audience this week. The rename-associated redesign landed all the way back in October shortly after the announcement, updated dark theme and all. With more people experiencing it, I'm curious to know how many of you make Discover/Feed a regular part of your day.

Just in case you aren't familiar, Google's Feed/Discover gives you a customized list of content relevant to your interests based, at least in part, on stuff you search for.

Robinhood halts plans for no-fee checking and savings accounts

0 comments

Robinhood has become an increasingly popular service for trading stocks. A few days ago, the company behind Robinhood announced no-fee checking and savings accounts, with an incredibly-high 3% interest rate. It seemed too good to be true, and sure enough, it was — accounts weren't insured by the SIPC.

"We’re furthering our mission to democratize America’s financial system," Robinhood wrote in a now-deleted blog post, "by introducing Robinhood Checking & Savings.
