Apple to Be The Home of New PEANUTS Streaming Content

Variety:

In a highly competitive situation, Apple has made a deal with DHX Media to produce new “Peanuts” content for the tech giant’s upcoming streaming service, Variety has learned.

Unexpected, but another great win for Apple’s still mysterious streaming platform.

Wonder what happens with the legacy Peanuts content?

It’s Friday Afternoon, So Here’s Another Facebook Privacy Leak Announcement

Wired:

Friday Morning, Facebook disclosed the latest in the ongoing series of privacy and security lapses that have come to define the company in 2018. For nearly two weeks in September, a bug let third-party developers view the photos of up to 6.8 million Facebook users, whether they’d shared them or not.

Here’s the source link on all of that.

The real fun of it all? Here, I’ll let Wired break that down…

Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation, which went into effect earlier this year, gives companies 72 hours to notify the authorities of a breach. It’s been well over 72 days since Facebook first spotted the Photos API issue.

Good luck with that one, Zuckerberg! Someone’s got a fine coming.

THE MAGNIFICENT MS. MARVEL Launches in March 2019

Entertainment Weekly:

EW can exclusively reveal that next year the current Ms. Marvel series will end, and Wilson will end her writing tenure on the character. A new comic, The Magnificent Ms. Marvel, will begin in 2019, to be written by Saladin Ahmed and illustrated by Minkyu Jung.

Great creative duo to continue the awesome work of G. Willow Wilson.

I have to assume Kevin Feige is working on bringing Kamala to the MCU sooner rather than later, right?

RIP Apple Music Connect

9to5Mac:

Apple Music Connect appears to slowly be going the way of iTunes Ping. Apple has started notifying Apple Music artists that it is removing the ability for artists to post content to Apple Music Connect, and previously posted Apple Music Connect content is being removed from the For You section and Artist Pages in Apple Music. Connect content will still be viewable through search results on Apple Music, but Apple is removing artist-submitted Connect posts from search in May.

RIP function within Apple Music which could’ve been good but no one really used.

Maybe they should’ve made an extendable API so people could more easily cross-post to Facebook/Instagram/Twitter and Connect?
