What is YOUR favorite Disney movie?
Disney Streaming Service Available This Fall!
Disney Plus is a new streaming service that will have all of your favorite Disney movies and shows in one place!
The ad-free streaming service will launch on November 12, 2019…
It will contain content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm (“Star Wars”) and National Geographic!
The subscription will cost $7 per month or $70 per year…
In comparison, Netflix costs $13 per month, while Hulu costs $5.99 per month with commercials and $11.99 per month without.
Disney also owns Hulu and ESPN Plus, so the three services remain separate, but it is likely they will be able to be bundled together for a lower subscription cost.
Disney Plus will support streaming on phones, computers, tablets, connected TVs and streaming media boxes!
The service may also become available on Chromecast, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, but that has yet to be confirmed.

How do YOU watch your favorite shows and movies?
If you’ve looked at any social media site in the past few days, you’ve seen someone using FaceApp.
It’s the app that uses AI to alter your photos, and the most popular way to use it has been the filter that makes you look old.
And now that it’s been trending for a few days, it’s time to dump a bucket of cold water on it: it’s a privacy nightmare!
As it turns out, FaceApp is made by a company in Russia…
It also immediately uploads your photos to a server, rather than just processing them on your phone!
The company said they’re using a data center in the U.S., but there’s nothing stopping them from moving those photos elsewhere.
So, is this a Russian project to build a facial recognition database on all of us? It doesn’t seem that way.
Could it turn into that if they wanted it to?
Yep, and there’s nothing you can do about it now if you’ve used the app.
Just another reason why it’s impossible to have fun in the digital age.
