Set TV next target for antipiracy

Netflix And Amazon Join The Battle Against Kodi Pirates Ian Morris, CONTRIBUTOR   Set TV is a company that offers 500 channels of premium content for $20 per month. But it hasn’t found some startling new revenue stream, it’s showing unauthorized content from broadcasters like Disney, NBC and others according to a lawsuit filed in California this week. The service has apps that work with devices like Amazon’s own FireTV as well as Nvidia’s shield and pretty much any Android device. Kodi, the open source video streaming app is also a way to watch the Set TV streams, and while Kodi itself is legal it suffers a lot with plugins which are most certainly not.

Fine Art of Obtaining a Zero Interest Credit Card 

Yes, they do exist If your credit is decent, and you know where to look, a zero-interest credit card offers financial consumers some definitive advantages. The fact is, a zero-interest credit card is worth pursuing, just based on the numbers alone. In 2017, the current average credit card interest rate was 12.77%, according to a recent study by Credit Donkey. That rate level hasn’t changed much since 2011 (at 12.74%), when Credit Donkey started tracking average credit card interest rates. Still, a 12.77% card interest rate is more than enough to start getting financial consumers clamoring for zero-interest rate cards. Such cards allow cardholders to shift high-interest rate debt to a new zero-interest rate credit card – a card that doesn’t charge an interest rate during a...

Loneliness and longevity

Do you live alone? How much do you rely on your smartphone or computer to interact with others? How often do you find yourself feeling lonely? We don’t often think about the repercussions of living a solitary life, but maybe it’s time we start.
