  1. Why all the gymnastics with streaming?

    Pluto TV is free.
    T-Mobile > free Netflix and Apple+
    Amex Platinum > free Disney+/Hulu and Paramount+ (via Walmart+)
    MasterCard > discounted Peacock
    And you’re done.

  2. The term Black Friday has made its way to Europe this year. I was a little surprised to see it in some London storefronts for the first time. In Rome, it is Black Friday saturation. Every store of every size has Black Friday posters in the windows. Somewhat saddening.
