Comcast 1Gbps service (asymmetric with a paltry 35Mbps upload speed) still has a 1TB limit and cost more than AT&T Fiber. I'm not sure Comcast gets that there's competition.

This. Exactly.

"Instead of delivering one of the show's best episodes, the combination of extremely dark moments, ham-fisted dialogue, and accidental comedy, interlaced with and moments of true excellence, the whole thing comes together as one of the most bizarre 40 minutes of television ever."

#microsoft calls for legislation to control uses of facial recognition tech. In detail. Incredibly impressive.

Though to be fair, MS has had an AI ethics committee turning down work and projects for a few years. This legislation would just force other companies to act the same way. so maybe this is about reducing the competitive disadvantage of #ethicalAI.

The show runners of Titans needs to stop with the interruptions of the main storyline. As much as I do like Hank and Dawn, both their episodes have caused the Titans storyline to a complete screeching halt. These two episodes along with the Doom Patrol and Jason Todd episodes feel like padding and filler for stretching out the season.

Timeless gets a two-part finale to wrap up loose ends. I'm sad the series got canceled, but I'm happy that it's getting an ending.
