Never Pay For Cable Or Subscriptions Again?

What is it about ?
From SkyLink Antenna, a new antenna capable of receiving up to 100 channels or more completely free and legally.

Developed with military technology, the SkyLink Antenna uses a design that offers a more reliable and technologically advanced antenna than almost any other on the market. That means more channels, movies and shows for free, without any subscription and in a completely legal way.

How it works ?
It’s easy! Simply plug your SkyLink Antenna into any TV. All connections are included in the package. Then turn your TV on, run a channel scan from the Menu of your TV and within 10 seconds you can be watching your favorite shows.

But how can you watch all this for free? The secret lies behind a law that no television operator in the world wants you to know. This specifies that they must provide, in addition to the conventional signal, a signal per radio. In order not to break the law, all operators therefore broadcast this signal.

You can watch TV 24/7 for free, all in Ultra HD of course. It should be noted that the optimal range is within 30 miles from broadcast towers. Weather and other environmental factors can also have an impact on reception, but thanks to SkyLink Antenna’s advanced technology, this should not affect you very much.

What sounds too good to be true is yet a reality. That’s why people all around the world are switching to the SkyLink Antenna. Before canceling your cable or satellite subscription, it is important to note that there are some channels that are not accessible with this antenna. But in the end, you will be able to receive 85% of the top watched shows on TV.

Google Chrome Has A Nasty Surprise

With over 60% market share, Chrome is the undisputed king of web browsers. A key factor behind this is Google GOOGL’s commitment to keeping it seamlessly updated with essential fixes and optimizations, but now the company has admitted Chrome’s latest upgrade comes with an unavoidable nasty surprise…

In a blog post, Google has admitted the newest version of Chrome rolling out to customers worldwide is going to consume up to 13% more of your system memory. For a browser whose biggest failing has long been its excessive memory consumption, this is the last thing users will want. Especially those with older systems and less RAM.

Google also confirmed this is a cross-platform change and will apply to Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS. The last of these could be particularly impacted as Chrome OS systems often ship with only 4-8GB of RAM.

So why has Google done this?

It’s all in the name of security. The new, more bloated Chrome contains a feature called ‘Site Isolation’ which combats the serious Spectre vulnerability which exposes computers at a chip level.

“Site Isolation is a significant change to Chrome’s behavior under the hood, but it generally shouldn’t cause visible changes for most users or web developers (beyond a few known issues),” explains Chrome software engineer Charlie Reis in the blog point.

“It simply offers more protection between websites behind the scenes. Site Isolation does cause Chrome to create more renderer processes, which comes with performance tradeoffs: on the plus side, each renderer process is smaller, shorter-lived, and has less contention internally, but there is about a 10-13% total memory overhead in real workloads due to the larger number of processes.”

Oprah gets into the restaurant biz

Oprah announced Wednesday that she made an equity investment into healthy restaurant chain True Food Kitchen. The former talk show host will join the company’s board and act as a consultant. The Phoenix-based chain has 23 locations in 10 states and expects to double its business over the next three years because of the cash injection, according to the report.

Oprah Winfrey
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Oprah Winfrey (born Orpah Gail Winfrey; January 29, 1954) is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist. She is best known for her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which was the highest-rated television program of its kind in history and was nationally syndicated from 1986 to 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. Dubbed the “Queen of All Media”, she was the richest African American of the 20th century and North America’s first multi-billionaire black person, and has been ranked the greatest black philanthropist in American history. At the peak of her popularity she was ranked by some as the most influential woman in the world.

Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood. She has stated that she was molested during her childhood and early teens and became pregnant at 14; her son died in infancy. Sent to live with the man she calls her father, Vernon Winfrey, a barber in Tennessee, she landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the age of 19. Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime talk show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place, she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated.

Credited with creating a more intimate confessional form of media communication, she is thought to have popularized and revolutionized the tabloid talk show genre pioneered by Phil Donahue, through which, according to a Yale University study, she broke 20th-century taboos and allowed LGBT people to enter the mainstream.

By the mid-1990s, she had reinvented her show with a focus on literature, self-improvement, and spirituality. Though criticized for unleashing a confession culture, promoting controversial self-help ideas, and having an overly emotion-centered approach, she is often praised for overcoming adversity to become a benefactor to others. From 2006 to 2008, her endorsement of Barack Obama, by one estimate, delivered over a million votes in the close 2008 Democratic primary race. In 2013, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama and honorary doctorate degrees from Duke and Harvard.

Apple catching up to Spotify

In the race between the top music streaming services, Spotify’s lead is disappearing. The Financial Times reports that music executives expect Apple Music to match Spotify’s subscribers in the U.S. by next month. Digital Music News reports Apple may already be ahead of Spotify. At this time last year, Spotify subscribers in the U.S. outnumbered those subscribing to Apple by about 4 million. Apple’s faster growth rate can be attributed to it pushing its services on users of its devices, according to the FT.

Where does Walmart stand?

Walmart, the world’s largest retailer and largest private employer, is increasingly weighing in on political issues like immigration, reports The Wall Street Journal. Previously, U.S. CEOs and boards didn’t have to weigh in on such topics, but that’s changing, says associate professor Lawrence Parnell at George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management. Walmart’s chief marketing officer Tony Rogers told reporters last month that around 72% of Walmart shoppers want the company to “take a stand on important social issues” and 85% want them to “make it clear what values you stand for.” Walmart is “embracing public positions” in some instances to improve its reputation with customers and attract new clientele as it competes with Amazon, says the Journal.

Walmart
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walmart Inc. (formerly branded as Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.) is an American multinational retail corporation that operates a chain of hypermarkets, discount department stores, and grocery stores. Headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas, the company was founded by Sam Walton in 1962 and incorporated on October 31, 1969. It also owns and operates Sam’s Club retail warehouses. As of January 31, 2018, Walmart has 11,718 stores and clubs in 28 countries, operating under 59 different names. The company operates under the name Walmart in the United States and Canada, as Walmart de México y Centroamérica in Mexico and Central America, as Asda in the United Kingdom, as the Seiyu Group in Japan, and as Best Price in India. It has wholly owned operations in Argentina, Chile, Brazil, and Canada.

Walmart is the world’s largest company by revenue – approximately US$486 billion according to Fortune Global 500 list in 2017 – as well as the largest private employer in the world with 2.3 million employees. It is a publicly traded family-owned business, as the company is controlled by the Walton family. Sam Walton’s heirs own over 50 percent of Walmart through their holding company, Walton Enterprises, and through their individual holdings. Walmart was the largest U.S. grocery retailer in 2016, and 62.3 percent of Walmart’s US$478.614 billion sales came from U.S. operations.

The company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1972. By 1988, Walmart was the most profitable retailer in the U.S., and by October 1989, it had become the largest in terms of revenue. Originally geographically limited to the South and lower Midwest, by the early 1990s, the company had stores from coast to coast: Sam’s Club opened in New Jersey in November 1989 and the first California outlet opened in Lancaster in July 1990. A Walmart in York, Pennsylvania opened in October 1990: the first main store in the Northeast.

Walmart’s investments outside North America have seen mixed results: its operations in the United Kingdom, South America, and China are highly successful, whereas ventures in Germany and South Korea failed.

Shopping malls are emptying out

Shopping malls across the U.S. haven’t been this empty in six years, according to The Wall Street Journal, with the popularity of online shopping affecting brick-and-mortar stores throughout the country. The mall vacancy rate for the year’s second quarter is 8.6% (from 8.4% in Q1), “as more consumers shifted their shopping online,” per the Journal. Retailers such as Bon Ton, Sears, J.C. Penney and Toys “R” Us have all announced closures this year.

Online shopping
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Online shopping is a form of electronic commerce which allows consumers to directly buy goods or services from a seller over the Internet using a web browser. Consumers find a product of interest by visiting the website of the retailer directly or by searching among alternative vendors using a shopping search engine, which displays the same product’s availability and pricing at different e-retailers. As of 2016, customers can shop online using a range of different computers and devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablet computers and smartphones.

An online shop evokes the physical analogy of buying products or services at a regular “bricks-and-mortar” retailer or shopping center; the process is called business-to-consumer (B2C) online shopping. When an online store is set up to enable businesses to buy from another businesses, the process is called business-to-business (B2B) online shopping. A typical online store enables the customer to browse the firm’s range of products and services, view photos or images of the products, along with information about the product specifications, features and prices.

Online stores typically enable shoppers to use “search” features to find specific models, brands or items. Online customers must have access to the Internet and a valid method of payment in order to complete a transaction, such as a credit card, an Interac-enabled debit card, or a service such as PayPal. For physical products (e.g., paperback books or clothes), the e-tailer ships the products to the customer; for digital products, such as digital audio files of songs or software, the e-tailer typically sends the file to the customer over the Internet. The largest of these online retailing corporations are Alibaba, Amazon.com, and eBay.
