As we approach the launch of the service, which seems like a guaranteed hit, it's worth paying attention to the technical aspects. We can not keep the servers running, but I do not feel bad about that.
The BAMTech succeed at video streaming services for quite a long time. Disney bought BAMTech in 201
Disney made a lot of savvy moves in the run-up to launching Disney +, but none were savvier than snapping up BAMTech wants to work its well. It's pretty remarkable that "working video streaming" is something we can just assume will not be a problem now. But we can, as Julia writes :
The technology on which BAMTech runs is a big part of Disney +; it's why Disney bought a majority stake in the company. Fans wants to remember – is key. "We are ready," [Michael Paull, president of Disney’s streaming services and former CEO of BAMTech] said.
Here's another thing worth noting: Disney + wants to subscribe to four simultaneous streams and free 4K . That's much better than what Netflix offers.

Google Chrome may soon automatically block notifications – 9to5Google
Kyle Bradshaw at 9to5Google is digging into the code hellaciously annoying notification that appears on so many websites.

Teaching users who have web site versions exist, could not find their home screen, and offer notifications without annoying. It's one that Google has not cracked yet. It's going to be tough to do so.
