Netflix review: The best premium streaming service

Streaming shows and movies over the internet is the best way to watch TV, and Netflix is the best choice for streaming entertainment, period. It includes a wide variety of familiar network shows and more original series, films, documentaries and specials than any of its myriad competitors. The world’s first major streaming service remains our favorite choice in 2020 thanks to its huge library of constantly-refreshed content and its easy accessibility across different devices. If you’re looking for something to watch while staying at home during coronavirus, Netflix should be your top choice.

  • Content comes and goes without warning.

Depending on the plan you choose, Netflix costs between $9 and $16 per month, which is at the higher end for a streaming service, as you can see in the chart below. However, the pricier package lets you watch on up to four screens at once, and create different user profiles, so

How to get your Starbucks fix now that coronavirus has closed its US stores

Uber Eats is one delivery option.


Starbucks

Starbucks announced on its COVID-19 blog on Friday that it’s closing the doors of nearly every store in the US as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Starbucks cafes are closed in the UK as well. This is the latest step that the coffee chain has taken in limiting the spread of infection. Starbucks said in a statement to “partners” (employees) that stores will remain closed for two weeks.

“We are temporarily closing access to our company-operated cafés and reducing our service to Drive-Thru only in the U.S. for at least two weeks starting Mar. 20,” the company said in a blog post. On March 6 Starbucks stopped filling customers’ reusable cups and on March 15 it began temporarily shutting retail stores and shifting to a to-go model in the US and Canada. Starbucks will continue to pay employees for the next 30 days even if they stay home. 

If the closure of thousands of stores across the US may lead you wondering how you’ll get your next venti double 145-degree oat milk hazelnut latte with extra foam, relax. Here’s how you can still buy your Starbucks coffee.

Jabra Elite Active 75t review: Top-notch wireless sports earbuds

The Elite Active 75t costs $20 more than the standard Elite 75t.


David Carnoy/CNET

As it did with its last-generation true wireless headphones, Jabra has once again released a very slight upgrade to its newer Elite 75t model. The new Elite Active 75t arrives about three months or so after the standard Elite 75t (sans Active) debuted. That model was downright excellent, earning a CNET Editors’ Choice award. This “active lifestyle edition” costs $200 (£190; $AU329) or $20 more than the standard version and has some small design upgrades. Is it worth the extra dough? The short answer is that for most people, probably not. But if you’re looking for a sports headphone for running and other athletic pursuits — and you sweat a lot — spending a little more on the Elite Active 75t may give you some added peace of mind that your headphones may hold up better over time.

Like

  • Better fit and smaller than previous model
  • Added coating for dust and sweat resistance
  • Sound better than the AirPods Pro, with better clarity and tighter bass
  • Good for making calls
  • IP57 water-resistance rating (fully waterproof)
  • HearThrough transparency mode (lets ambient noise in)
  • 7.5-hour battery life between

Apple restricts iPhone and iPad Pro purchases to two per order amidst coronavirus outbreak

Hit by apparent supply constraints, Apple is limiting orders of the new iPad Pro and the iPhone to prevent bulk ordering.

The coronavirus could make remote work the norm, what businesses need to know
The coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak could be the catalyst for a dramatic increase in telecommuting. Enterprises should prepare for an increase in remote work and the long-term effects on marketing budgets, corporate travel, and commercial real estate values.

Apple is now limiting the number of iPhones a customer can purchase online to prevent bulk ordering in the wake of reported supply constraints. In many countries, including the United States and China, Apple’s online retail store will not let you add more than two of the same model Phones to your shopping cart, as reported by Reuters on Friday.
