Streaming giant Netflix quietly did away with its 30-day trial in the U.S., according to CNET, just like Disney+, which stopped offering free trials back in June. The U.S. is not the only market where Netflix has decided to end its free trial. The company ended trial periods in Mexico and several other countries as far back as two years ago.
“Free trials are not available, but you can still sign up and take advantage of all Netflix has to offer,” Netflix’s free trial help page now reads. In a statement to CNET, a Netflix spokesperson said the company is currently looking at differen marketing

Though businesses and lifestyle is bouncing back to normal everywhere, the COVID-19 pandemic crisis is still causing a lot of trouble for people across the world. It has become essential for us to wash our hands frequently and disinfect our gadgets and other belongings from time to time to stay safe from the virus.
A recent study by Australian researchers has revealed that the virus causing COVID-19 can survive on glass, banknotes, and stainless steel for up to 28 days. This indicates that the virus can also thrive on the glass on your smartphone’s display for nearly a month, provided it is not disinfected properly.
New Study’s Findings
As per CSIRO, the national science agency of Australia, the virus remained infectious for almost 28 days on surfaces such as plastic, banknotes, and glass on mobile phone displays at a temperature of 20-degree

The IRS on Monday extended the deadline for up to 9 million Americans who didn’t receive a first stimulus check to claim a missing payment. The original Oct. 15 deadline for nonfilers — a group of people who typically don’t file their taxes, including older adults, retirees and SSDI recipients — has been pushed back to Nov. 21.
“We took this step to provide more time for those who have not yet received a payment to register to get their money, including those in low-income and underserved communities,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a statement.
For the most part, the first wave of stimulus checks went out automatically this spring and summer, without the intended recipients having to do anything but meet the qualifications. But a subset of
Illinois Facebook users may be eligible for up to $400 after a settlement was reached involving the website’s facial-tagging feature.
Facebook originally tried to settle for $550 million, but a judge bumped the number up to $650 million.
In order to qualify, users must have lived in Illinois for six months and have a profile before 2017.

Some Facebook users in Illinois are eligible for up to $400 after a settlement was reached involving Facebook’s tagging feature, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
In July, Reuters reported that Facebook agreed to pay $650 million after a lawsuit was filed alleging the company violated the state’s Biometric Information Privacy Act. The law states “[no] private entity may collect, store, or use biometric identifiers or information without providing prior notice to and obtaining a written release or consent from the subject,” according to Bloomberg Law.
With every passing day, Facebook gives us more evidence that it’s incapable of running itself responsibly, and every day it faces zero consequences. The profits rise and the what-are-you-gonna-do shrugs get more emphatic. But today is different. Today, some of you out there have a chance to cause the social network a little pain for its misdeeds by claiming a $400 settlement check.
As Motherboard points out, Facebook users in Illinois have started to receive notifications on the platform informing them that they could be eligible to receive a payout. The money comes from a lawsuit that accused Facebook of violating the state’s laws on the collection and storage of biometric data without users’ consent. After fighting for several years, Facebook agreed to a $650 million settlement. That’s not going to break the bank for a company that posted more than $18
(Reuters) – Tesla Inc <TSLA.O> faced a stock market reality check on Wednesday after a much hyped “Battery Day” event which Wall Street analysts judged chiefly for its omissions and hazy delivery deadlines.
Investors had expected two big announcements from Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk: the development of a “million mile” battery good for 10 years or more, and a specific cost reduction target – expressed in dollars per kilowatt-hour – that would finally drop the price of an electric vehicle below that of a gasoline car.
They got neither from the event and analysts from Swiss banking group UBS said the innovations he did unveil and the promise to deliver a sub-$25,000 mass market model within three years also came with risks attached.
“By the time (the car) arrives, there will be significant competition in the segment, from VW group, amongst others,” the bank’s analysts wrote in a note
