%name These 5 iPhone deals on Amazon are so much cheaper than anything coming on Black Friday by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Deals on Apple’s new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max flagship phones are going to be all over the place next week for Black Friday 2019, but we’re going to let you in on a little secret: unless you’re already planning to buy one of these pricey new iPhones, you probably shouldn’t bother. Most of the deals don’t actually save you that much money, many of them require you to trade in a phone in order to get the savings, and all of them will lock you into a 2-year contract. Ugh. If you want a new iPhone and you really want to save some serious cash, there are deals running right now on Amazon that are way better than anything you’ll see next week. Check out Amazon’s sale prices on iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 8 refurbs before they sell out — prices start at less than $145!

Netflix will release 53 new original movies and shows in December – here’s the full list

%name Netflix will release 53 new original movies and shows in December – here’s the full list by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

November has been a big month for Netflix’s original shows and movies, both in terms of quality and quantity. Where the latter is concerned, a whopping 73 different shows, movies, and specials will have premiered on Netflix by the time the month is over. You can check our earlier coverage for the full list of Netflix’s original November premieres to make sure you didn’t miss anything big, like new seasons of The End of the F***ing World, The Great British Baking Show, Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, and The Crown. And don’t forget, Scorsese’s epic mob movie The Irishman starring Robert Dinero, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and more debuts next week on November 27th.

December dials things back a bit in terms of the quantity of new originals that’ll be added to Netflix’s ever-expanding catalog of content, but we’re definitely not expecting any decrease in quality. In fact, some of the most hotly anticipated Netflix originals of 2019 are set for release next month. There are plenty of popular and critically acclaimed shows set to return with new seasons, including Fuller House, Lost In Space, Magic for Humans, and You. There’s also a new Kevin Hart documentary that’ll be released on December 27th. But there are two new Netflix originals that people have been buzzing about for months, and they’re finally set to premiere in December.

First, we have the arrival of 6 Underground on December 13th. In case you somehow missed all the buzz, this is the explosive action movie by Michael Bay, his first feature film for Netflix. You know, the one lead actor Ryan Reynolds was paid a whopping $27 million to star in, which follows the story of six billionaires who become vigilantes. Then on December 20th, Netflix will finally release the first season of its epic new fantasy show The Witcher. It’s based on the books of the same name (not the video games), and it could very well end up being our next fantasy show obsession now that Game of Thrones is kaput.

Check out the full schedule of Netflix original releases in December blow, and we’ve included links to the appropriate Netflix pages whenever possible. If you’d like to see even more that Netflix has in store next month, check out all the third-party movies and shows that are coming and going in December 2019.

Apple Watch Series 3 is still down to $169 on Amazon, a new low

%name Apple Watch Series 3 is still down to $169 on Amazon, a new low by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

If you have an iPhone and you want to add all sorts of great capabilities that don’t even require you to touch your phone, you obviously want an Apple Watch. Sure, you could spend $400+ on a new Apple Watch Series 5, or you could take advantage of the killer deals Amazon’s running on the Apple Watch Series 3. Prices start at just $169.99, and all-time low, and some models are already selling out. One thing to keep in mind as you shop, however, is that as Amazon’s shipping estimates slip, you shouldn’t worry too much. Amazon almost always ships orders long before those estimates. For example, I ordered discounted AirPods Pro last week and the shipping estimate said 1-2 months. Guess what: I already got them!

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS, 38mm) – Silver Aluminium Case with White Sport Band: $169.99

Here’s more from the product page:

  • Gps
  • Optical heart sensor
  • Digital Crown
  • S3 with dual-core processor
  • Accelerometer and gyroscope
  • Swim proof
  • Watchos 5
  • Aluminum case

Apple’s 2019 holiday gift guide goes live, but without the Black Friday discounts you expected

%name Apple’s 2019 holiday gift guide goes live, but without the Black Friday discounts you expected by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Apple products are among the most coveted gifts every Christmas, with the late-November Black Friday and Cyber Monday events usually delivering a variety of exciting discounts on some of the newest Apple products. However, Apple isn’t known for offering any big deals of its own during these holiday shopping events. You’re much better off hunting Apple bargains on other sites, as several electronics retailers usually offer consistent discounts on Apple devices. But, every year, Apple posts an updated gift guide on its website, about a week before Black Friday, containing all the new products available in stores in time for Christmas. This year is no different, as Apple just listed its 2019 gift guide on its website.

iPhone 5G to support both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands

%name iPhone 5G to support both mmWave and sub 6GHz bands by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Apple has never attempted to be the first company to support the next-gen, speedier, wireless data transfer standard. It waited to make the jump to 3G and 4G, and the company is taking a similar approach for 5G. While several of its rivals have already launched 5G phones, the iPhone 11 phones only support LTE, just like their predecessors. However, Apple is expected to adopt 5G as soon as next year. The same insider who said recently that all 2020 iPhones will sport 5G connectivity is back with a new prediction about next year’s iPhone lineup, revealing that the iPhone 12 — or whatever Apple ends up calling it — should support all 5G tech versions.

Runaway cat traveled 1,200 miles over five years before being apprehended

%name Runaway cat traveled 1,200 miles over five years before being apprehended by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Sasha is a good cat. His owner, Viktor Usov, hadn’t seen him for five years after the frisky feline disappeared from his Portland home. He had no idea where Sasha went, but when an animal goes missing for five years it’s easy to assume they’ll never be seen again.

When Usov got a call from the Sante Fe Animal Shelter, a facility located some 1,200 miles away in Mexico, he couldn’t believe what they told him. Sasha had been found, alive and well, and a quick microchip scan led the shelter to contact his owner.

‘The Mandalorian’ will probably have no effect on ‘The Rise of Skywalker,’ and that’s a shame

%name ‘The Mandalorian’ will probably have no effect on ‘The Rise of Skywalker,’ and that’s a shame by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

One month. That’s all the time we have left until the next Star Wars movie premieres. The final episode in the Skywalker saga will tell us how this trilogy ends. But what exactly are we supposed to be excited about? The thing that made Avengers: Endgame so great was the epic cliffhanger in Infinity War. Of course, it helped that Marvel took a decade to build up this fantastic story. For Star Wars, Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII felt more like a conclusion for the third trilogy. As I explained almost two years ago, The Last Jedi feels like a movie that doesn’t need a sequel. I will see the film when it launches next month, but I’m not as excited as I should be about this epic conclusion. That was hardly the case before The Last Jedi‘s premiere, when I was looking for answers to so many questions from The Force Awakens.

On the other hand, The Mandalorian‘s arrival did make me want to see more Star Wars stories, and the format absolutely works for the franchise. The epic finale of that first episode will excite any Star Wars fan. That’s easily the most exciting thing about the series so far, and the most exciting thing to happen to Star Wars in years. However, it’ll probably mean nothing for The Rise of Skywalker, as epic as that revelation might have been.

If the idea of getting your hands on one of the latest iPhone models basically for free sounds enticing to you, then you’ll definitely want to be aware of a T-Mobile promotion that gets underway on Friday.

As part of the Un-carrier’s “Magenta Friday” promotion that launches on November 22, a full week before Black Friday, T-Mobile customers have the chance to snag as many as four iPhone 11 or iPhone XR handsets — basically for free, it’s just that you’d have to pay only the sales tax for the model(s) over a span of 24 months.

NASA’s adorable underwater rover might be the first to discover alien life

%name NASA’s adorable underwater rover might be the first to discover alien life by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

NASA is about to put a rover to the test in Antarctica, and it’s unlike any robot the agency has ever shot into space. A far cry from the bulky, boxy Mars rovers Opportunity and Curiosity, the BRUIE rover looks almost like a toy by comparison. Its cutesy form factor belies its incredible potential to discover something that scientists have spent decades hunting for: Alien life on other worlds.

BRUIE — short for Buyant Rover for Under-Ice Exploration — is built for a very specific purpose. Its design allows it to crawl along the underside of an ice cap, fully submerged in incredibly chilly water. Antarctica is the perfect place to test such a bot, but its creators hope it will one day explore the waters of icy moons like Enceladus and Europa.
