April 2022 highlights

Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood (Movie)

Writer-director Richard Linklater returns to the rotoscoped form of animation he previously explored with his films Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly in the far more kid-friendly film Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood. Inspired by his own childhood in Houston, Texas during the 1960s, Linklater imagines a secret Apollo mission to let a kid do a 'dry run' of the moon landing before the big event. And yes, it looks as charming as it sounds.

Metal Lords (Movie)

Metalheads, get ready to raise your horns to the air, because Netflix's new original film Metal Lords is here to put heavy metal back in the spotlight.

The Kardashians (TV series)

If you've been missing your regular fix of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and the rest of the gang since the end of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you'll be glad to know that they're back once again with an entirely new Disney Plus original series! Simply titled The Kardashians, the new show seems a lot like the old one based on the trailer above, which is a plus for fans.

Outer Range (TV series)

Most likely driven by the popularity of Paramount's Yellowstone, Amazon has its own ranch-set series on the way with the Wyoming-based Outer Range. Similarities in setting aside, Outer Range appears to be an entirely different beast, with a clear mystery-thriller vibe that seems to dabble in some science fiction elements. Either way, this Josh Brolin-starring series looks incredibly intriguing.

Roar (TV series)

Nicole Kidman, Issa Rae, Alison Brie and a host of other talented ladies star in Roar, an anthology series which tells eight outrageous, genre-bending stories through the eyes of their female protagonists. Roar comes to us from the creators of the (unjustly cancelled) Netflix series GLOW, which should give you a pretty good indication of what to expect in terms of tone.

All The Old Knives (Movie)

Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton star in All The Old Knives, a modern-day espionage thriller that's packed to the brim with secrets and intrigue. The film follows Henry (Pine), a CIA agent who's been tasked with trying to determine whether his ex-flame Celia (Newton) is a double agent.

Better Call Saul (TV series)

Returning for its final outing after an interminably long break between seasons, Better Call Saul will finally tie up all of the loose ends connecting it to Breaking Bad, whether we like it or not. Bob Odenkirk, who suffered a near-fatal heart attack during filming last year, gets the opportunity to send his classic character Saul Goodman home with a bang – we just hope things turn out well for Kim (Rhea Seehorn).

Russian Doll: Season 2 (TV series)

Netflix's excellent series Russian Doll returns for its highly-anticipated second season this month, continuing the story of Nadia Vulvokov (Natasha Lyonne), a cynical New Yorker who finds herself stuck in a time loop. We're keen to see how the show's second season picks up, given the way that the first season ended in [SPOILER ALERT] two different timelines.

The Flight Attendant: Season 2 (TV series)

Kaley Cuoco gave a truly outstanding performance in the first season of The Flight Attendant, which saw her alcoholic character Cassie attempt to piece together a drunken night which resulted in her waking up next to a dead man. This season, it seems Cassie finds herself in the middle of an entirely new mystery when she takes on a "part-time job" as amateur private investigator/spy.

Fans of The Wire rejoice, because creator David Simon, along with frequent collaborator George Pelecanos (The Deuce), are back with a new limited series that once again explores the ongoing drug war in Baltimore – only this time from a slightly different angle. We Own This City follows the rise of the Baltimore Police Department's Gun Trace Task Force, and its fall due to corruption. Starring Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) and several familiar faces from The Wire, We Own This City looks like another classic in the making.

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G
