Kevin Smith Is Making a Masters of the Universe Anime Series for Netflix

More than 30 years after Academy Award nominee Frank Langella promised the world that Skeletor would return, Skeletor is returning—and this time he’ll be on Netflix! Deadline reports that filmmaker Kevin Smith is planning an anime series for Netflix called Masters of the Universe: Revelation. Smith, whom Andrew Harris once hailed as the next Scorsese, announced the news Sunday at Power-Con 2019: The He-Man and She-Ra Toy and Comic Book Experience in Anaheim:

I’m Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix for entrusting me with not only the secrets of Grayskull, but also their entire Universe. In Revelation, we pick up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! Brought to life with the most metal character designs Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame, this is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!

Netflix’s First Pirate Site Blocking Application Granted in Australia – TorrentFreak

The first ’pirate’ site blocking application in Australia featuring US streaming giant Netflix was granted by a judge in Federal Court this morning. Netflix successfully teamed up with Roadshow Films, Disney, Columbia and many other studios to have well over 100 domain names associated with torrent, streaming and similar sites blocked by local ISPs.

The rate at which ‘pirate’ sites are being blocked in various countries raises the question of how many more there are left to block.

The answer, it seems, is plenty more yet.

Back in May, yet another application filed in Australia’s Federal Court presented a unique feature – the inclusion of US-based streaming giant Netflix as one of the applicants.

Instagram’s ’huge booty’ problem keeps getting worse

There isn’t a day when I don’t come across comments from bots on Instagram. They’re all over the place. But there’s nothing they love more than to spam high-profile pages with millions of followers. Whether it’s LeBron James, Kim Kardashian, ESPN or Ariana Grande, their posts are often the target of comments such as ”We gonna ignore the fact that I’ve GOT A HUGE BOOTY?” or ”DON’T LOOK at my STORY, if you don’t want to M A S T U R B A T E !” Behind these, are fake accounts featuring pictures and videos of naked and half-naked women, whose primary goal is to get people to sign up for shady porn sites. This has become a serious problem for Instagram, one that seems to be getting worse by the day and that the company needs to get a handle on, before it gets more out of control.

Mozilla Firefox Bug Let Third-Parties Access Saved Passwords

Mozilla patched a vulnerability in the Firefox web browser with the launch of the 68.0.2 release which would allow unauthorized users to copy passwords from the browser’s built-in Save Logins database even when protected with a master password.

”Stored passwords in ’Saved Logins’ can be copied without master password entry” according to Mozilla security advisory, which also rates the security flaw tracked as CVE-2019-11733 as having a ’moderate’ impact.

The flaw allows anyone with local access to a computer running an unpatched version of Firefox to go to the Save Logins dialog available in Firefox’s Options > Privacy & Security preferences menu and copy the password stored for any of the saved logins by right-clicking and choosing the ”Copy Password” option.

Apple says it’s responsible for 2.4 million jobs in the US

President Donald Trump has criticized Apple for not making its products in the US, but the iPhone maker says it’s responsible for creating and supporting millions of jobs in America. Apple on Thursday said its job footprint across all 50 states has grown to 2.4 million, which the company says is four times the number of jobs attributable to it eight years ago.

Apple directly employs 90,000 people, the company said in a release, with the rest of the jobs coming from suppliers, contractors and other businesses that support its products and services. A large portion of these jobs, 1.9 million, are related to third-party software developers that make apps for Apple devices. At this pace, Apple says, the company will contribute $350 billion to the US economy by 2023.

Apple, which hit  $1 trillion in value last year, didn’t provide details on how it reached these job totals.
