PSA: First Free Year of Apple TV+ Subscriptions Ending, Expect Charges on October 31

With the launch of the iPhone 11 lineup and the introduction of the Apple TV+ subscription service in the fall of 2019, Apple gave those who purchased an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV a free year of Apple TV+.


For those who signed up for Apple TV+ right when it was available on November 1, 2019, those free year-long Apple TV+ accounts are expiring at the end of October. A year is a long time to remember to cancel a subscription, so we wanted to warn MacRumors readers not interested in keeping Apple TV+ that charges are imminent. The first subscribers will be charged for Apple TV+ on October 31, 2020.

For Apple TV+, Apple did not allow subscriptions to be canceled right after signup because doing so would end the subscription right away, so there are many potentially active Apple TV+ subscriptions out there. Here’s how to cancel.

Glass vials move along a conveyor at the Gerresheimer AG medical glassware factory in Buende, Germany, on Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020. Gerresheimer has built up capacity and most of its factories are operating around the clock as the company holds talks with pharma companies, working on a coronavirus vaccine.

Australia’s budget forecasts will assume a coronavirus vaccine will be developed in the next year, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says.

“The budget takes into account the possibility that is the case,” Frydenberg told Sky News Australia in a segment from an interview to be broadcast Monday”. “We have factored in those issues related to the vaccine and those will be available on budget night.”

Assuming a vaccine is available in 2021 will be a positive for the economic outlook, as it may signal a return to international travel and foreign tourist spending. Frydenberg is set to

Borderlands 3 Still Has Surprises In Store, One Year After Release

As the pioneer of the so-called “looter-shooter” sub-genre, Gearbox Software’s Borderlands is a brash and in-your-face action-RPG series with an infinite supply of guns and a squad of badass, quirky vault hunters to get to know. After a short hiatus between entries, 2019’s Borderlands 3 was an explosive return for the franchise’s bizarre yet enticing nightmare gallery, filled with big guns, fast vehicles, and tons of pop-culture references. However since the release of 2012’s Borderlands 2, the landscape has changed, with the rise of other looter-shooter games like Destiny 2 and Tom Clancy’s The Division. Because of this, Borderlands 3’s non-subtle and more energetic approach to the loot-grind was simultaneously a nostalgic sight and something of a throwback to the early 2010s shooter.

At launch, Borderlands 3 was a solid return for the series, keeping up with the many tenets of collecting loot, nailing fast kills with your character’s expanded

Hubble Space Telescope watches stunning supernova fade over a full year

Tens of millions of years ago, the corpse of a star stole away too much gas from a neighbor and exploded, becoming a beacon in the cosmos — one that took a full year to fade away.

Fortunately for scientists, the massive stellar explosion, called supernova 2018gv, took place 70 million light-years away, and the Hubble Space Telescope was in prime position to watch the lightshow. Astronomers used the instrument to create a timelapse showing the supernova’s year-long fade, from February 2018, shortly after the explosion was first detected, through February 2019.

“No Earthly fireworks display can compete with this supernova, captured in its fading glory by the Hubble Space Telescope,” Adam Riess, an astrophysicist at the Space Telescope Science Institute and Johns Hopkins University in Maryland and leader of the team behind the new footage, said in a statement.

Welcome To The Year Of The Customer Marketer

Customer marketers are ideally positioned to accelerate value delivery to customers and efficiency gains to their organizations in 2021. Marketing leaders must begin to see customer marketers and demand marketers as peers to maximize this opportunity. 

The global Covid-19 pandemic and economic crisis have caused B2B businesses to make major adjustments, with more to come. One major trend we see is an amped-up focus on retention — keeping customers and ensuring they achieve value. We’ve been pushing hard on retention as a growth strategy for quite some time. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve said, “You can’t grow what you can’t keep.” Focus on the post-sale customer lifecycle is the core principle on which we base our research, models, frameworks and best practices in our Customer Engagement Strategies service. 

Every year, our team lays out planning assumptions that customer marketing, customer success, and customer experience leaders and practitioners

5 Tech ETFs Driving the Market Rally This Year

The technology sector has shown strong resilience amid the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, it has driven the bull market since the March lows and has been the best-performing sector so far this year with the S&P 500 Information Technology climbing more than 26%. In comparison, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Index has gained 4.4% and 24.9%, respectively.

The gains were primarily driven by mega-cap companies, especially the FAANG stocks though these have bled lately on elevated valuation concerns. Notably, after an astounding surge since the March lows, these stocks are now selling at very rich valuations. Still, they are fundamentally strong.

This is especially true as the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the global digital shift, which has accelerated e-commerce for everything ranging from remote working to entertainment and shopping. The resurgence in coronavirus cases lately and the prospect of lockdowns will continue to fuel demand for Internet (read:

France to test ‘flying taxis’ from next year: operators

“Flying taxis” will start taking off from an aerodrome north of Paris as soon as next June, operators said, in a trial ahead of a vast tourist influx for the 2024 Olympics.

The experiment will take place at the Pontoise-Cormeilles-en-Vexin aerodrome some 90 minutes northwest of the capital by car, according to a joint announcement by the Ile-de-France region, airports operator Groupe ADP and the RATP public transport agency.

A drone-like, fully-electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle (VTOL) dubbed VoloCity, produced by German company Volocopter, was chosen for the innovative trial with flying taxis in a peri-urban area, they said.

The partners said in a statement they had “decided to bring together all the conditions to make the emergence of this new mode of transport possible to complement the existing modes, whether for the public or for goods.

“Furthermore, the prospect of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games provides an
