YouTube is Now Available on the Switch!

YouTube on SwitchMy son, the GameMaster, loves his Nintendo Switch, and he loves to watch YouTube. This announcement should make him happy!

YouTube arrives on the Nintendo Switch

TechCrunch – By: Jordan Crook – “Nintendo has sold over 22 million Switch consoles since launch, with plans to sell another 20 million this fiscal year.

That said, Nintendo hasn’t seemed too focused on building out its portfolio of non-gaming apps.

Thus far, only Hulu has managed to get aboard the Switch train. But today, YouTube joins the mix. Switch owners can download the YouTube app here. Also of note: the YouTube app on Nintendo Switch supports 360-degree video.

Given Nintendo’s portfolio of Switch-compatible games, including Zelda, Super Mario Odyssey, Pokémon, and Fortnite, YouTube’s integration with the console makes sense. Both the Switch and YouTube skew toward younger demographics.

Part of the reason that it’s taken so long for streaming apps to make their way to the Switch is because of Nintendo’s focus on growing its gaming library for the console.

‘We’ve said that other services will come in due time,’ said Reggie Fils-Aimé, Nintendo’s chief operations officer, in an interview from last month. ‘For us, we want to make sure that we continue driving the install base for Nintendo Switch, continue to have great games for the platform.'”

Disney + is the Name of the New Disney Streaming Service

Mickey MouseGiven they own all the Marvel content, I suspect this will be a popular streaming service.

Disney’s new Netflix rival will be called Disney+ and launch late 2019

CNBC – By: Michelle Castillo – “Disney’s new streaming service will be called Disney+ and launch in late 2019, CEO Bob Iger announced on the company’s earnings call Thursday.

The company announced in August 2017 it would pull all its movies from Netflix in 2019, and start its own streaming offering for its past titles. Disney also purchased Fox for $71.3 billion in cash and stock, further bolstering its library.

The service will also feature new, original shows and movies, including original Marvel and Star Wars series. Marvel fan favorite character Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, will get an original series on the Disney+ service. A prequel series to Star Wars movie ‘Rogue One’ about the character Cassian Andor, portrayed by Diego Luna, will also call the service home.

Other original shows and movies include a rebooted version of The High School Musical franchise. It will also be a hub for animated content, including the next season of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ and an new original animated series based on Pixar’s ‘Monsters Inc.’ Exclusive movies include ‘Noel,’ a Christmas movie about Santa’s daughter played by Anna Kendrick, and ‘Togo,’ a movie about the 1925 Nome Serum Run starring William DaFoe.

Disney launched a placeholder website for Disney+ that shows off logos of brands like Pixar, National Geographic and Marvel.

Disney’s other streaming service, sports-centered ESPN+, reached 1 million paid subscribers in just five months.

The company reported its fourth-quarter earnings after the bell on Thursday. Shares went up as much as 2 percent after beating earnings and revenue estimates.”

Microsoft Screws Up Again! Windows Pro Activation Glitch!

Evil EmpireI saw this yesterday. My legitimate copy of Windows 10 said it wasn’t activated. I did do the “Troubleshooting” fix by shear guess and it fixed it. However, you gotta do better Microsoft!

Microsoft Quickly Fixes Windows 10 Activation Issue

Thurrott – By: Paul Thurrott – “Yesterday, many Windows 10 Pro users started seeing erroneous activation issues. But Microsoft quickly fixed the issue.

‘We’re working to restore product activations for the limited number of affected Windows 10 Pro customers,’ a Microsoft statement obtained by Mary Jo Foley notes. That statement arrived in mid-afternoon on Thursday. And Microsoft fixed the problem by the end of the day.

As you might imagine, given the way things have been going with Windows lately, there was an instant rip of outrage and criticism of the software giant for this latest gaffe. But without knowing what caused the problem yet, we can at least take solace in the fact that Microsoft did fix it very quickly. And it’s not like anyone lost data or functionality during the downtime, which lasted less than a day.

For those curious about the error, it impacted Windows 10 Pro only. Users were incorrectly informed by the OS that their legal copy of Windows 10 Pro was unauthorized or unactivated.

If you did experience this problem, it’s fixed: You can open Settings (WINKEY + I) and navigate to Update & Security > Activation, and then select “Troubleshoot” to run the Activation Troubleshooter to manually make everything right if it didn’t happen automatically.

So, yes, I’m wondering what went wrong. But in the scope of other issues coming from the Windows team these days—like the fiasco that is the October 2018 Update—this was a relatively minor problem, now fixed.”
