Apple jumps into the Subscription Game.

#1 Trending Event
🍎 Apple Special Event

Today, Apple is set to host a Special Event from the Steve Jobs Theater. 

Apple's annual March event is usually reserved for announcing new hardware, but this year Apple chose to announce those through press releases leading up to this event which included updated versions of the iMacs, iPad Air, iPad mini, and AirPods.

So what is Apple announcing today?

Despite Apple's mysterious dark press image, it is rumored that Apple will be shining the spotlight on its own TV and News subscription services.  While neither of these are "revolutionary", it should bring Apple's usual convenience and polish we're used to.   

We're sure Apple has a few tricks up their sleeve so keep an eye on the event page for updates.

It's time to reactivate those HBO NOW subscriptions because Season 2 of Barry is premiering this week.  Bill Hader stars in this dark comedy of a down and out hitman who travels to L.A. finding solace in a group of hopeful theater actors.  If this isn't your jam, the final season of Game of Thrones premieres later this month on HBO.

Sports
🏀 March Madness: Men's Sweet 16
The field has been whittled down to 16 teams with all four top-seeded teams still alive in the tournament.  The tournament hasn't been without its excitement with Duke barely surviving a late layup by UCF and 12-seed Oregon being the lone double digit seed team remaining.


Movies
🐘 Dumbo in Theaters
The first of three 2019 Disney live-action remakes hits the theaters this week, with what will surely cause everyone a circus of emotions.  What we love about this movie is that it reunites Tim Burton, Danny DeVito, and Michael Keaton who worked together in Batman Returns. 


Television
💃🏻 Veep - Final Season Premiere
The final season of Veep is here which will follow Selina Meyer on the campaign trail as she runs for president again.  This season was originally scheduled to be released in 2018 but was delayed when Julia Louis-Dreyfus was diagnosed with breast cancer.


Holiday
🖥 World Backup Day
For those of us who think periodically means annually, this Sunday is a great reminder to backup all your important data.  Can't say we didn't warn you.


⭐ The Best of the Rest

Another week is in the books.  Thanks to everyone who posted and commented this week.  Below are some other events we'd like to mention:

Tolkien Reading Day is today so its a good time to pick up your favorite Tolkien book to get you in the mood for the release of his upcoming biopic.

Don't miss Waffle Day, which some people call the champaign of pancakes.

The UN International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade is this week and aims to raise awareness of the dangers of racism and prejudice.

Google will shutdown "Inbox" this week, which was their experimental alternative to Gmail.  Luckily, Google has incorporated many of the Inbox features in Gmail.
