It’s summer. We’re outdoors at night more than other seasons. Then, when people think about becoming more familiar with the night sky, the various stars and constellations, they often think that a telescope is required. And while it’s true that good views of planets, nebulae and galaxies do require a telescope, there’s a lot one can learn by an organized effort with the naked-eye. In fact, one can argue that a good familiarity with the constellations is an important starting point for all things astronomical. This linked article has great information on exactly how to become a good naked-eye stargazer

Inspired by a coworker, ArsTechnica’s Chris Wilkinson used a Macintosh IIsi as his main computing system. The computer has 20MHz of processing power, and it’s interesting to find out how far that will take you in today’s computer world. Mr. Wilkinson had to tinker with it first, as it didn’t even turn on when he first found it. After installing a new battery (something you can’t do with modern Macs) it finally powered on. The result?

Your Netflix subscription may soon cost more, or have fewer features. The streaming media company is reportedly considering a higher-price tier called Ultra with HDR video and HD audio support. Assuming the new tier does roll out (it’s in testing now), PhoneArena says it’ll cost US$16.99 which is $3 more than the current Premium plan. That isn’t too bad, but the change will likely see the number of simultaneously supported devices on each tier reduced as well.
Some Italian consumers say that based on promotional material they’ve received from the video streamer, the new Netflix lineup reduces the number of screens that can stream Netflix simultaneously with the Premium plan from 4 to 2. However, others in Italy who received information about the new Ultra tier say that the Premium service will continue to allow four screens to stream Netflix at the same time. If Netflix does cut the number of simultaneous screens in half for its Premium plan, that would be akin to a price hike for those who share the service with three other users.
There isn’t any guarantee the Ultra tier will survive its limited testing phase, but if it does there’s a good chance you’ll get less for you money on the current plans.
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War stop reading now. With that out of the way, Reddit is going to experience its biggest forum ban ever on July 9th when the moderators of the thanosdidnothingwrong subreddit randomly ban half their members. It seems only fitting since Thanos did that very thing in the movie, but on a galactic—or universal—scale. Of course, you won’t turn to dust if you’re in the half that’s banned from the subreddit, so at least there’s that. Ironically, the forum may have more members after the ban than it did before the moderators announced the plan because people are signing up in droves just to see if they survive.
