After app tracking scandal, MoviePass drops its annual pricing again

March 23, 2018 Alex 0

Yet another price drop for MoviePass . Following statements that the app was tracking customers’ location, which CEO Mitch Lowe quickly backtracked on, the company is again dropping its pricing in an effort to attract more sign-ups in the wake of the bad press. Today, the cost of MoviePass annual subscription has dropped again to $89.95, which works out to be $6.95 per month, plus a one-time processing fee of $6.55.

Typically, the MoviePass monthly subscription is $9.95.

This is not the first time MoviePass has tried this tactic to lure in new customers to its all-you-can-watch moviegoing service with over 2 million subscribers. The company previously ran the same promotion back in November 2017. And as with that earlier sale, MoviePass is again not saying when this promotion will end – only that it’s for a “limited time.”

The company has come under fire for a series of misleading statements, which has left some customers wary about using the service. At the Entertainment Finance Fo..

Apple is missing the boat on AirPower, and other companies are taking advantage

March 23, 2018 Alex 0

The picture at the top of this post is not the AirPower wireless charger that Apple announced at its iPhone X event last September. It comes from the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for a device called Plux, which has raised over $365,000 at the time of posting from over 9,000 backers. All of these potential customers seem very eager to get their hands on anything that even somewhat resembles the promise of Apple’s AirPower mat.

It’s been over seven months since Apple first announced the AirPower mat alongside the iPhone X and iPhone 8, the first phones that Apple sold with wireless charging. The big promise of AirPower is that it will be a one-stop shop for wirelessly charging all your portable Apple devices, like an iPhone, an Apple…

Apple could be announcing a new cheap iPad

March 23, 2018 Alex 0

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple could be unveiling a new version of its entry-level iPad at its event next week. The company is holding a press event on March 27 in Chicago. And the only thing that we know is that the event is going to be focused on the education market.

Apple launched a cheap iPad in March 2017 without any press conference. This iPad looks like the iPad Air 2 with a 9.7-inch retina display and an A9 chip — the chip that first appeared in the iPhone 6S. More importantly, the entry-level iPad that is simply called “iPad” only costs $320 for the 32GB version.

And it sounds like Apple is ready to introduce an updated version of this iPad. Maybe you can expect a True Tone display and faster components for instance. Hardware is just one part as Bloomberg also says that there will be new iOS features for the classroom.

While the iPad seems to be a great device for the classroom, Google has convinced many schools with its Chromebooks. These laptops are chea..
