Watch the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro launch event live stream here

Just because Huawei won’t be selling its phones through any of the major U.S. carriers and Best Buy doesn’t mean that you can’t find the Huawei P20 Pro to be a desirable high-end handset. The U.S. government has warned stateside wireless operators and consumers about the close ties that Huawei has with the Chinese government. There are fears that Huawei’s phones and networking equipment provide a backdoor connection to servers in China that are owned by that country’s government.

Still, even with all of that in mind, there are probably more than a few Americans who would be willing …

A maximum of 30 seconds could be recorded and uploaded to social media.

Once Snapchat started selling them online, sales began to tumble.

T-Mobile: Astros fans love social media while Dodger fans like to stream video

The 2017 World Series has gone back and forth, a pitcher’s duel one game, a slugfest the next. And the Houston Astros, who just a few short years ago lost more than 100 games for three consecutive seasons, are one win away from their first title. But that isn’t the important thing. What is important is how the fans in each of the two cities used T-Mobile data on their phones while sitting in the stands during the games.

L.A. fans, perhaps due to the city’s close proximity to movie and television studios, used Netflix 250% more in Dodger Stadium during games 1 and 2, than Astros fans did …

Rumor: Apple and Comcast in talks to stream first run movies to paying subscribers

The latest rumor circulating near the popcorn stand at your local theater (where a box of Jujubes and a Coke will cost you $50) is that Apple and Comcast are teaming up to offer a service that would allow both firms to stream first run movies to customers. And by first run, we mean that these are films that are still playing in theaters. Apple and Comcast are said to be in talks with major Hollywood studios about this plan.

According to the speculation, movies that would qualify for first run streaming would be those that have already been in theaters for two weeks. And while this might …
