There's a reason 'Netflix and chill' is such a popular, modern day turn of phrase.

WHO MIGHT buy Netflix? Speculation on the matter has risen in line with the streaming giant’s own ascent in the past decade. Apple, with its cash hoard, was a frequently rumoured suitor. Or perhaps Amazon, or big distributors like AT&T or Comcast. At one point, industry sources say, Bob Iger of Disney directly asked Reed Hastings, the boss of Netflix, if he would welcome an offer (Mr Hastings said no). Instead all six companies embarked on a series of massive investments that will reshape the landscape of media: who makes entertainment and how people consume it. Since June AT&T, Comcast and Disney have spent $215bn in total on acquisitions of, respectively, Time Warner ($104bn), Sky, a European broadcaster ($40bn), and much of 21st Century Fox ($71bn). Each is preparing new streaming services that will launch by early 2020. Get our daily newsletter Upgrade your inbox and get our Daily Dispatch and Editor's Picks.

Judge Rinder Q) ON March 14, 1992, my husband died suddenly. I had three children and received a small monthly pension for myself and them. I recently met a former work colleague of my husband’s and he mentioned a death in service lump sum benefit, which he said would have helped with the bills and bringing up the children. I told him I never received it and had to work two jobs. He suggested I look into this as I would be entitled to claim. How would I go about claiming this money? Cathy, NewcastleA) I am sorry for your terrible loss. Your late husband’s work colleague could be correct. There are some pension schemes that pay a lump sum if the policy holder dies. You need to write to the chief financial officer of your late husband’s … [Read more...] about Death in service lump sum would have helped bring up my children — am I still entitled to make a claim?
NEW Netflix documentary The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann has suggested the missing girl - who would now be 15 - may still be alive. It's been suggested by the McCanns' private investigator, Julian Peribanez, that Maddie - who was just three when she vanished on holiday in Portugal - could have been 'abducted to order' by a child trafficking gang. It may sound far-fetched, but if Peribanez's claims are accurate, Maddie could be a victim of a sick global trade known as ‘child laundering’ - in which children are sold into the sex trade, illegally adopted or even killed for their organs. The investigator claimed a British girl is worth more money to evil child traffickers, and that Maddie could have been kept alive as a result. He said: "They usually go for lower-class kids from third world countries — that’s the main supplier of these gangs. “The value that Madeleine had was really high because if they took her it’s because they were going to get a … [Read more...] about Inside the ‘abduction to order’ rings which may have snatched Maddie McCann and where ‘attractive British children can fetch more than £10,000’
APPLE has blindsided gadget fans with the surprise launch of a new “miniature” iPad and a new iPad Air this afternoon. The iPad mini 5 is the first new entry to the “mini” series in nearly four years – and features a powerful new processor and Apple Pencil support for the first time ever. Apple first announced the iPad mini series way back in October 2012, giving gadgets fans a smaller (and generally cheaper) tablet option. Rather than the near 10-inch screen featured on the main iPad tablets, an iPad mini has a smaller 7.9-inch display – which makes it more portable, and in some cases even pocketable. But until today, Apple’s most recent iPad mini update came in 2015, which makes the launch of the new iPad mini 5 long overdue. Now the new model supports the Apple Pencil stylus, which is a first for the series. New iPad mini 5 – what you need to know The new iPad mini 5 has a 7.9-inch screen just like previous models. But the specs have … [Read more...] about Apple unveils new iPad Air and iPad mini 5 with Apple Pencil support in surprise announcement
