    What’s New on Netflix and What’s Leaving in October 2017

    At this point, we all already knew that this month was bringing the end of 30 Rock on Netflix — but nobody mentioned that Love Actually would be leaving as well. Yes, that Love Actually. The movie I watch every year the moment the clock turns from October to November. The movie that basically makes or breaks the holiday season. Apparently, Netflix is getting into the spirit early by being the ultimate scrooge and removing the 2003 Christmas classic just as the whole world was gearing up to wat...

    FCC's deregulation of business data lines could mean a price hike

    If you operate a small or medium-size U.S. business, you can expect to pay more for broadband services in the near future because the U.S. Federal Communications Commission plans to deregulate providers of business data lines, critics of the proposal say.

After the half-hearted partial free-to-play relaunch failed to grab audiences, Battleborn was officially put to rest yesterday, with no future updates planned after the next, as detailed in a letter from Randy Varnell, creative director on the ga...
