Google is reportedly planning to launch a ‘Netflix for games’ service that could turn the $140 billion industry on its head.
Google will announce new hardware for its upcoming streaming game product at the Game Developers Conference, according to 9to5Google.
Google had offered a streaming game beta that ended in January, and later said it would make an announcement at the conference.
The service could open up console gaming to more devices, letting users stream high-end games without buying a console like the PlayStation or Xbox.

Wendy Returning! 

Friday February 22, 2019

 Wendy Williams set to return on March 4, 2019 after being gone for several weeks. The extended break was said to be for her to recover from a fractured shoulder; but many sources are saying otherwise. HOW YOU DOING?!

Wendy health prompted concern in the past. Last year, The Wendy Williams Show went on a three-week hiatus for Wendy to focus on her health after she was diagnosed with Graves’ disease. She also fainted on-air during her Halloween show episode October 31, 2018. Williams said she became dehydrated and overheated because of the heavy Halloween costume she was wearing.

Williams wrote on her Instagram…“I promise you a better Wendy in 2019, I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks.” So let’s see if the queen of HOT Topics will come back on air stronger than ever.

Samsung announced their big Galaxy Fold cell phone this week in the news. The phone will start selling April 26. Cost of the phone will be about $1,980-$2,000. Yes that’s right! But question is will most consumers purchase the phone like they do the iPhones.

The Galaxy Fold is made up of two screens: a 4.6-inch on the outside as it closes like a book, and the other, a 7.3-inch that stretches across the inside when you open it up to become a tablet.

To make the most of a larger screen, you can open up to three separate apps at once, so like an article, video and your text messenger. So that means you can have up to three app active windows open when you’re in full screen. Now that’s multi-tasking!

The distance is 221,734 miles from Earth during the super snow moon, according to EarthSky the average distance between Earth and the Moon is 238,855 miles.

North American regions stores will close.

Lastly, time is running out to use your Payless ShoeSource gift cards and make any final returns. The store will be honoring gift cards until March 11. Pending court approval, March 1 is the last day for returns and exchanges of merchandise purchased before the liquidation sales began. Store coupons and rewards have been discontinued effective immediately.
