Must read


If you’re starting to run out of streaming content, you’re done The Mandalorian already? – YouTube and MGM offer the first 19 James Bond films via the Free to Watch section of YouTube in the United States. This includes anything featuring the late Sean Connery, such as Dr No and The golden finger, until the passage from Pierce Brosnan to Bond with titles like Golden eye.

Sony’s Daniel Craig era movies not available, but you can watch Casino Royale redo and Quantum of Solace (but no Sky Fall or Spectrum) on Netflix. That should at least be enough to reassure you as we all wait for the latest James Bond title, No time to die, to escape the limbo of the pandemic.

Six days late.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War launched last month and brought the shooter series to a new generation of consoles, and now its first major content update is about to arrive. With the Season One add-on bundle set to arrive on December 10, its developers have announced that they are pushing things back to December 16.

Many of these brands only sell a few Cadillacs per month compared to Buick, Chevrolet and GMC models.

As brands like GM are heavily dependent on dealers, they have to appeal to owners to stand any chance of strong sales – and that’s tough when they’re unsure of demand, even without the pandemic.

Yes, I am also confused.

The next morning

WarnerMedia might not just pin most of its streaming hopes on HBO Max. Sources at Information claim that WarnerMedia is planning to launch two more streaming services – which is generally not how streaming works. (Surely you can just add additional content to the same service?)

Either way, it’s rumored to be a paid CNN service (launched next year) that may ditch the usual 24-hour news in favor of in-depth originals and international content. The other potential service would be an ad-supported free offering with entertainment from cable channels like TBS and TNT – that won’t appear until 2022 or later.

Exploding stars increase carbon production from within.

Today, I learned that the plural of supernova is the incredibly class “supernova”. Scientists at Michigan State University have found that these exploding stars create carbon atoms that give birth to life much faster than previously thought.

At the same time, however, they uncovered another mystery that could overturn current theories of element creation and help fuel a new science in the fields of astronomy and fusion.
