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.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
