Jordan Peele’s Get Out is heading into this year’s Academy Awards with four nominations, including Best Picture, and audiences will be able to see the film again for free at AMC theaters this Presidents’ Day. Peele made the announcement today via Twitter, with a creepy video clip promoting the event as a celebration of the film’s one-year anniversary. (Get Out was released last year on February 24th; the free screenings will be happening next Monday, February 19th at 7:00PM local time.)

How to Prevent HomePod from Playing Explicit Content

HomePod and Apple Music are perfect for enlivening your music time! While the former has been applauded for having an incredible sound, the latter is renowned for having the exclusive and massive library of songs. By default, you can stream any songs including the explicit ones on the smart speaker. However, you have the option to prevent HomePod from playing explicit content.

Many of you would want to avoid playing music with obscene contents to ensure they do not affect your kids, wouldn’t you? Let me show you how it’s done!

And you should not doubt that. Case in point: Apple Watch, which is far, better now that what it was launched in 2015.

In 2017, it was the dangerously involving Egg Inc., and this year it’s a beguilingly simple block puzzle title called Slidey.

Slidey is a member of the vast and diverse genre of games remixing the classic Tetris formula. You are faced with an endless supply of squares, which arrive in single, double, triple, or quadruple blocks, that you need to marshal into complete horizontal lines to delete them from your screen. The entire gameplay mechanic is, as the name suggests, sliding blocks left and right to make them fit together…
