At last!! Update brings download ability to Netflix app

You can almost feel the internet suddenly slowing down

It’s finally happened: you can now download TV shows and movies from Netflix to your mobile device. Of course, there’s a catch: not everything Netflix offers is available for download. But a lot of stuff we love is, like Stranger Things, House of Cards, The Crown and Orange is the New Black.

You’ll note those are all Netflix originals, but many movies are also available for you to enjoy while offline, which is something that Netflix has said it would never do in the past. So why the change? In a word: competition, especially from Amazon Instant Video, which has allowed downloading for a while now.

You’ll need to update your Netflix app and once you do, you can tell a show or movie is savable if it has a little arrow at the bottom of the screen, and Netflix says that yes, more and more content will be downloadable as time goes on. Thanks, Reed!

GoPro sharpens its focus in bid to stay afloat

The tough times continue over at actioncam icon GoPro, with news now that 200 jobs are about to vanish, the company’s entertainment division is about to close and the company’s president, Tony Bates, is on his way out.

It’s been tough sledding recently for GoPro as competitors make inroads with competing cameras and a massive recall of their Karma drone, which was supposed to be a breakout new product for the company. There’s still no word on when or if the Karma will fly again, but GoPro did say that sales of their new camera, the Hero 5, are up 35 percent heading into the holidays, so some good news there at least.

GoPro’s “entertainment” division was essentially a system that paid content creators for their video efforts, and it paid out about a million dollars over the last year. But, no more. Here’s hoping 2017 flies a little higher for the company.

We need a blocking program for it called Skipper… or maybe Ginger

Android smartphone users have a new malware threat to deal with, called Gooligan. Security experts at Check Point say the malware is typically hidden in third-party apps that have the ability to root a user’s phone and send user data to a remote server.

Once infected, the phone becomes a platform for a fraudulent ad campaign, and those responsible do have access to everything on the phone, including google Docs and so on. We’ve got more details on the malware and how to avoid it, so hit the link below for more information.
