Netflix plans to spend $7 billion on content next year

Netflix TV

If there's one thing we know about Netflix, it's that the streaming giant isn't afraid to spend big bucks to keep its growing subscriber base happy. As a prime example, it's widely believed that Netflix earlier this year agreed to pay Jerry Seinfeld upwards of $100 million for two brand new stand-up specials along with a smattering of scripted content. More recently, Netflix managed to poach Shonda Rimes, the creative mastermind behind hit shows like Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder -- away from Disney. While terms of Rimes' new production deal with Netflix weren't disclosed, it's believed to be well into the millions.

Top insider confirms the Apple Watch will have LTE, but there’s a big catch

Apple Watch 3 LTE

In reports published over the last few days, we've learned that the Apple Watch 3's biggest change is going to be the addition of an LTE radio. It's supposed to take the Apple Watch from a fancy iPhone accessory and turn it into a grown-up independent gadget.

The chipset will be made by Qualcomm, not Intel; there won't be a physical SIM, as it'll use Apple's eSIM tech; and it will only have an LTE radio with no ability to make phone calls.

We already know the phone will basically be an even bigger Galaxy S8 version, offering users the same overall specs and features. On top of that, the new Note phone will have a better camera and a built-in stylus, features that aren’t available on Samsung’s Galaxy S8 phones. A new report, however, says the Galaxy Note 8 should have one other advantage over the Galaxy S8: It'll offer a better Android experience.
