THE Showbox app, which provides a free way to watch the latest TV shows and films, appears to be not working. Reports suggest it has been shut down but these have yet to be confirmed. Has the movie and TV streaming app been shut down? The status of the app is currently shrouded in mystery as people who have tried to open the app have reported they just get a message saying the app has broken and to check the internet connection. The message reads: "Connection error. Check your internet connection!" There has been no indication whether or not the connection failure is permanent or just a temporary glitch. Other sites appear to be offering a download of the app, but these have not been verified.

If you think your Facebook news feed is more clogged with political ads than ever this year, it’s not just you: the 2018 election is shaping up as the biggest one yet for digital political communication, with campaigns, super PACs, and outside groups spending increasingly more money to blanket the internet and social media with ads. The ads that are popping up all over your computer, tablet and phone screens are taking more forms than ever, too, from short clips to longer videos made for the web, and shareable reminders to donate money to ominous attacks on an opponent.

Unfortunately, about half of Americans have access to only one high-end broadband provider, so there’s little competition to keep them honest. Also, many have to make do with sluggish DSL services over old-school phone lines. To … [Read more...] about How to cut the cable cord and still be able to watch TV
Ex-Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado now runs the U.S. Office of Cuba Broadcasting, a federal agency that creates pro-American "news" and blasts it in the vague direction of Cuba. It would be perhaps inaccurate to say the OCB's stations — Radio Martí, TV Martí, and Martí Noticias — "broadcast" in Cuba, because even the U.S. government admits the Cuban government is easily able to jam the signals.Critics argue that as bad as the Castros are, the federal government's ongoing, near-slapstick attempts to sabotage the administration have done little but ratchet up the tension between the two nations for no real reasons other than spite and force of habit.1. The CIA's largest outpost in the 1960s and 1970s was the infamous "JM/WAVE" station on the University of Miami campus.
