Hitchcock’s SPELLBOUND is the Weirdest Movie Ever | Nerdist

One of the many reasons the TCM Film Festival--which has taken place in Los Angeles in the spring for the past nine years--is my favorite festival to attend is that it affords people the opportunity to catch up on classics they may have missed, projected on the big screen, often in brand new restorations or, more enjoyably, on very old nitrate film prints, which are rare. If that classic you've never seen happens to be an Alfred Hitchcock movie, then you're really in for a treat. This year's allowed me to finally see his 1945 film Spellbound and it might well be the most preposterous thing I've ever seen, in a way only Hitch could make it. Almost all of Hitchcock's movies play up suspense and melodrama for the purposes of making audiences uneasy, and a great many of his most famous films employ some sort of logical leap, a flight of fancy that allows the movie to work but doesn't quite bear the scrutiny of real life. This is perfectly fine; it's a narrative film and not a documentary.

My 3 months with Amazon Key were better than expected

Seven of the eight lock options -- including the Assure Smart Lock Touchscreen I chose -- require a complete replacement of your existing deadbolt. That's easy enough to swap out, in theory, but my front door didn't sit perfectly flush with my doorframe. The installer spent time working on that to make sure the lock would open and close on its own, without someone having to nudge the door to ensure a clear path for the deadbolt.

Step inside a $51M townhouse filled with Philips Hue smart lights

That's it, folks. Thanks for checking out the Kips Bay Decorator Showcase. As I said, the townhouse is on sale for $51 million. To be clear, all the decorators remove everything from their rooms after the showcase is done so you'll have to bring your own designers in. Of course, if you jump in now with an offer you might be able to make a deal and buy it as is.

'The Expanse' Officially Revived for Season 4 at Amazon

"We couldn’t be more excited that The Expanse is going to continue on Amazon Prime! We are deeply grateful that Jeff Bezos, [new Amazon Studios head] Jen Salke, and their team at Amazon have shown such faith in our show," said Alcon Entertainment co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, who produce the series. "We also want to thank Laura Lancaster, head of Alcon Television for her tireless efforts. We are fully aware that this wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the staggering outpouring of support from the most creative, hardest working sci-fi fans around the world. From reddit campaigns to airplanes, we say thank you. It worked!”

Add Android Auto or CarPlay to your car for cheap

So, would I recommend the Kmoon K5980? Yes, but with reservations. It's literally hundreds of dollars less than most Android Auto and CarPlay units, and it delivers more or less the same infotainment experience as those pricier models. The screen isn't very bright, though, something to consider if you have a convertible. And installers may balk at working with a product they don't sell and service.

Guess who comes back in Solo?

I don't really care what happens next with Han or Lando, but I can't wait to see where they take Q'ira's character. She proved herself quite the combatant and a female Sith (if indeed that's what's she's in training to be) isn't something we've seen on the big screen before. Also, it's just so exciting to have Darth Maul back on the big screen. His fight with Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn in Episode 1 is still one of my favorite lightsaber battles ever. Hopefully we don't have to wait too long to find out what happens next.

GDPR: What the data companies are offering | ZDNet

GDPR has become mainstream, as evidenced by my 13 year-old son who, as I was writing this post, asked me why everyone's updating their privacy policies. You've probably been getting numerous privacy policy update emails in your inbox, too. If so, you know that while the GDPR is about data, it's geared to all companies, not just vendors in the data and analytics space. In fact, those companies have the same liabilities as their customers and are still busy figuring out the finer GDPR details.

'Neon Advance' reminds us that some gadgets really can live forever

Fundamentally, this is a question of ownership. If you buy a gadget that you are not at liberty to repair, that gradually breaks down into near-uselessness because of software you don't control, and that a tech corporation could disable without your permission, is it really yours? These are questions any person should consider in the connected age, as we cede our digital lives to firms with clear profit motives, and as those digital lives become further intertwined with the ones we experience as breathing human meat.
