A_Bad_Day_for_TargetPractice

via A new Star Trek series will premiere in 2017 | The Verge. CBS targets the new $5.99 a month “CBS All Access” at the world’s Trekkies, Trekkers, Trek Fans, Tribbles, and Hobbits. One hopes their aim and technology is better than that of Lieutenant Worf and Security Officer Tasha Yar…

Geordie LaForge:  “Data, is my visor malfunctioning? What the heck are they shooting at?”

Mr. Data:  “I have yet to determine that. They appear to be looking in one direction, but pointing their phasers elsewhere.”

Geordie LaForge:  “Who taught Tasha how to shoot? She’s holding that phaser like an umbrella!”

Mr. Data:  “Yet, the beam is somehow deflected downward near Worf’s.”

It’s not as if there isn’t a huge backlog of Star Trek Media available if you look, but for something new you’ll have to subscribe to yet another streaming service!!

Taylor Tweets, Apple Beats Swift Retreat

After Taylor Swift’s Criticism, Apple Will Pay Royalties in Trial Period – The New York Times.

Who would have thought a few years ago that Country-turned-pop star and super successful Manhattan penthouse owner Taylor Swift would stand up for not only her own financial rights, but those of Indie bands and music companies? Reminiscent of Tom Petty. She did. With the power of Twitter she forced Apple’s Eddy Cue to cue up a new arrangement over the weekend that pays artists during the 3 month “trial period” of Apple’s new streaming music service. Go Taylor.
