  • The highly anticipated 5G iPhone might be a disappointment 15/12/2019 at 17:44h
    The 5G iPhone's performance rests on the shoulders of the carriers. What you need to know Analyst Gene Munster is warning investors about the stock impact from the 5G iPhone. The partner believes that carriers are overpromising 5G coverage. Apple will still be a top performer, regardless of the iPhone, argues Munster. Anticipation continues to grow for the 2020 iPhone which is expected to be Apple's first iPhone with 5G. It will spell a huge connectivity shift for the company and allow users to take advantage of blisteringly fast wireless speeds. That, however, is completely dependent on wireless carriers getting 5G rolled out across the United States, and according to Loup Ventures managing partner Gene Munster, that is exactly why investors should be cautious about the company's stock performance next year. In an interview with CNBC, Munster said that investors should not expect the 5G iPhone to boost Apple's stock price as much as has been speculated, and he blames the over ...

  • 'Truth Be Told' would have a better start if it actually told you anything 14/12/2019 at 18:00h
    The compelling premise of Truth Be Told is marred by a bunch of unimportant details that don't move the plot along. Modern culture is obsessed with true crime. From podcasts like Serial, TV shows like Making a Murderer, and films like Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, we are obsessed with the macabre in a way that we have never been before. We also love an underdog story — so Truth Be Told should be a gold mine. I say should because while the show has some fantastic performances from its cast members, the convoluted storylines that it crams into its first three episodes make the main plot slow to an absolute crawl, to the point where the show becomes boring. Exclusive content Apple TV+ $5 per month at Apple 100% exclusive content for the price of a cup of coffee. With TV+, you can watch well-produced, big-budget TV shows from famed directors, and starring award-winning actors and actresses across all your Apple devices and with up to six members of your Famil...

By the time you fully kit out a Mac Pro, the bill runs north of $53,000, which, by the standards of everyone outside of the 1% (or something) is a life-changing sum of money. That's a very nice...
