Netflix chooses Mark Millar’s ‘Prodigy’ as its second comic book

The news comes a year after Netflix bought Mark Millar's publishing company, Millarworld, and less than a month after it unveiled the first video productions based on Millar's work. Netflix isn't wasting time, then. And that's necessary to some degree. Now that Disney will stop offering Marvel movies on Netflix, the service risks running low on fresh superhero content. This won't make you forget Marvel's absence, but it could reduce the temptation to drop Netflix if you mainly stayed for the comic-based material.

Twitter Lite is now available in 21 more countries

Since launching Lite last year, Twitter has gradually rolled it out to more locales and, as of today, people in 21 more countries can use the app. Those nations are Argentina, Belarus, Dominican Republic, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Morocco, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Romania, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, Yemen and Zimbabwe. People in those nations (and a couple dozen more) can grab the app from Google Play Store.

Alongside the expansion, Twitter has added push notifications to Lite. The feature joins bookmarks, threaded conversations, night mode and settings to control which images and videos are automatically displayed. Twitter claims content loads quickly in Lite, even when connectivity is limited to 2G or 3G speeds. While bringing its service to more people is a positive step, there's a business incentive for Twitter to help more people read and post tweets -- the company saw a dip in the number of monthly active users last quarter.

Google search knows where you were even if you disabled Location History

The Verge received a similar statement, but one that says "we make sure Location History users know that when they disable the product, we continue to use location to improve the Google experience when they do things like perform a Google search or use Google for driving directions." That last phrase appears to be referring to Web App history, though Google wasn't clear on that.

If indeed you want to turn off all location tracking, it'll take a bit of work. For starters, you'll definitely want to disable the Location History feature. Despite it's broad-sounding name, that's a very specific feature that creates a timeline of where you've been based on your mobile phone location. While you might have assumed turning that off would disable Google location-tracking across all its services, that isn't the case.

After disabling Location History, turn off "Web App History" -- but note that your experience using Google's services will be significantly different going forward. For starters, none of your search history will be saved, anywhere. Some might find that useful, but in the case of products like Google Maps, it also makes things a little less user-friendly. The app won't have visibility into past searches you've made in Maps; it'll instead only show recent searches you've made on your phone itself. That also means that Maps won't know where you are when you look for directions in a browser.

Overall, it seems that the primary location-gathering aspect related to "Web App History" comes from Google searches. When that setting is turned on, Google can provide more "relevant" info. There's no doubt that having Google be aware of your location can be handy when you do a search, but if you truly want off the grid, make sure to disable this feature.

It's worth noting that even after you've turned these location features off, Google results still might use your search history to make a guess about where you are. For example, searching for "pizza near me" was still pulling up results in my neighborhood, and it also knows where I am when I type in "weather." So, to erase your entire Google footprint, you'll want to go into the "My Activity" page where you can see everything you've done that touches Google services. Searches that grabbed your location will have the small location pin icon next to them; delete those to cover up your tracks. Finally, you'll also want to make sure you disable location services on your smartphone for any apps (Google or otherwise) that you don't want to access your location.

You can see your Google history at myactivity.google.com; clicking on "activity controls" on the left-side menu will present options for disabling Web App History as well as your Location History. I spent a lot of time digging through my history today and came away fairly unconcerned about the data Google had collected through my search history. It's far from a complete picture of where I've been, but I'm an iOS user. Something like the weather widget that's the default on all Pixel phones would be enough to give Google a pretty good map of your travels when Web App Activity is turned on.

Musk’s explanation of ‘funding secured’ tweet challenged by Azealia Banks

In a conversation with Business Insider, Banks said she arrived Friday and left on Sunday, and that while at one of Musk's properties she saw him "scrounging for investors" after that tweet. The time period covered by her posts would fall in between Musk's odd disclosure, and this morning's explanation claiming that the funding "secured" rested on his belief he'd be backed by investors from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund.

Musk's spokesperson told BI the claims were "utter nonsense," but it remains to be seen whether the SEC and investors who have already filed lawsuits accusing him of fraud over the market-moving tweet will feel the same way.

Update: Tesla and Musk have not responded directly, however the CEO did tweet tonight that he is "excited to work with Silver Lake and Goldman Sachs as financial advisors, plus Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen Katz and Munger, Tolles Olson as legal advisors," on the proposal. Also, the New York Times reported that his tweet was dashed off "with little forethought" and blindsided board members.

CBS All Access’ ‘One Dollar’ trailer links money to murder

CBS wants to remind you that its All Access streaming service isn't just about Star Trek, and it's doing that in grand fashion. The network has posted the first trailer for One Dollar, a thriller series that underscores the dangers of money. It features singer Sturgill Simpson as a former steel mill worker swept up in class and culture wars that ignite after a strange multiple murder. The hook, as the name implies, is a dollar bill -- its path through a declining company town provides different perspectives from people desperate for and corrupted by cash.

Court blocks FCC from cutting broadband subsidies in tribal lands

The judges behind the ruling also rejected the FCC's claim that cutting the subsidies would spur carriers to build their own networks in tribal areas. The Commission didn't show historical evidence that reduced subsidies would lead to more telecom investment, according to the court. If anything, the judges said, the evidence suggested the opposite. The plaintiffs pointed out that providers have typically refused to offer Lifeline service in their lands since the tribal Lifeline initiative started roughly two decades ago, and that the stricter requirements don't give companies an incentive to expand.

The FCC unsurprisingly objected to the stay. It claimed that the plaintiffs hadn't demonstrated the likelihood of "irreparable harm," and insisted that blocking the Lifeline changes would amount to "wasting public funds" on areas it didn't think should receive full subsidies.

There's no certainty that the appeal will work out in the tribes' favor. However, even the stay order could throw serious complications into the FCC's plans. It saw the tribal cuts as part of a larger strategy to reduce Lifeline subsidies across the board, ostensibly to cut costs -- this would force it to maintain at least some of the broadband discounts and blunt the impact of its order. That could be good news for tribal populations that risked losing internet access, but it's doubtful the current FCC leadership will see things their way.

Facebook buys Vidpresso to make live broadcasts more interactive

It's not clear if Facebook will eventually cut off those companies' access to Vidpresso's tech, but the team said in their announcement that joining the social network will allow them to offer their tools to more people than just their A-list publishing partners. "Eventually," they wrote, "it'll allow us to put these tools in the hands of creators, so they can focus on their content, and have it look great, without spending lots of time or money to do so."

Facebook's Vidpresso acqui-hire speaks to the tech giant's continued video push. The company has been padding its offerings with more and more new features in an effort to make video a bigger part of its business and to compete with its rivals in the space. Some of its newest features include the ability to launch canned videos as live moments with real-time chats and a tool called Watch Party that allows members of Facebook groups to watch videos simultaneously.

You can see Vidpresso' technology in action below:

NVIDIA’s Turing-powered GPUs are the first ever built for ray tracing

NVIDIA announced three graphics cards with the technology, all due in the fourth quarter. The Quadro RTX 5000, 6000 and 8000 will go on sale for $2,300, $6,300 and $10,000, respectively, with the top of the line 8000 packing 48GB of RAM. If that's not flexible enough there will also be an option for a RTX server that will give datacenter-style access to a GPU for multiple users -- there's no word on how much that costs.
