New Coke returns for Stranger Things season 3

first_img 4 Soda flop. Coca-Cola Co. Stranger Things celebrates the 1980s, and with season 3 out July 4, what better way to give a taste of the decade then to revisit the infamous tweak to Coca-Cola known as New Coke. The beverage company tweeted Tuesday that it’ll pop open a limited release of New Coke to promote the new season of Stranger Things on streaming service Netflix. This comes 34 years after the release of the failed drink. Tags Starting on May 23 at 5 p.m. ET, the Coca-Cola Co. will release a limited-supply run of New Coke in the company’s online store. A bundle of two cans of the recipe and a limited-edition and numbered Stranger Things/Coca-Cola and Coke Zero Sugar 8-oz. glass bottle will be available for purchase. Coke will also set up free vending machines filled with New Coke in select cities. Customers who purchase tickets to the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta or who spend $19.85 or more at Coca-Cola Store Las Vegas on certain days during the week of June 3 will also have an opportunity to score cans of New Coke. Stranger Things creators The Duffer Brothers directed a new series trailer that doubles as a commercial for the drink and will be played in select movie theaters starting May 24.  In a first-of-its-kind partnership with Netflix, we’re bringing back New Coke as an innovative way to reach “Stranger Things” fans. https://t.co/m7MEfX6E4i pic.twitter.com/GKvRLZnpDP— The Coca-Cola Co. (@CocaColaCo) May 21, 2019 Released in April 1985, New Coke was the Atlanta-based company’s attempt to regain market share that it was losing to other drinks. The new recipe didn’t make any fans, causing a huge backlash among drinkers of the original. It took just three months after the release for Coca-Cola to announce it would reintroduce the old drink that summer, dubbing it Coca-Cola Classic. Stranger Things season 3 is set during the summer of 1985. Originally published May 21, 9:09 a.m. PT.Update, May 22: Includes additional info on how to get New Coke.

Lucifer will end but the devil could return for spinoff producer says

first_img Tags Fans responded with thanks to the cast and Netflix for the show’s run. Modrovich tweeted to one fan that a spinoff series or a movie isn’t off the table. Lauren German and Tom Ellis, the show’s leads, had posted on Instagram last month about the show’s fifth and final season. Later the stars tweeted their thanks to the fans for their support of the show. The show followed Lucifer Morningstar (played by Ellis), who deserted hell for Earth and opened a swanky nightclub called Lux in Los Angeles. Lucifer eventually starts solving crimes with LAPD homicide detective Chloe Dancer (played by German), who he harbors complicated feelings for. The show is loosely based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for the popular “Lucifer” comic series. Originally published July 1.Update, July 2: Adds fan reactions to Lucifer’s cancellation. 2:28 A message of love for our #Lucifans 🥰😈❤️ from me… @Henderson_Joe all the #Lucifer writers and our beautiful cast… @tomellis17 @LaurenGerman @LesleyAnnBrandt @RachaelEHarris @kevinmalejandro @dbwofficial @Aimee_Garcia and @ScarMestevez pic.twitter.com/8aXb6yfJ7c— Ildy Modrovich (@Ildymojo) June 26, 2019 What’s new to stream in June 2019 Lucifer is causing trouble in LA for possibly the last time.  Fox Lucifer, the devilish TV series that was pulled back from the brink of death by Netflix last June, will end after its fifth season. Ildy Modrovich, the show’s executive producer, confirmed the news on Twitter and urged fans to accept it. “We spoke to our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros. and you should know that tremendous care and consideration was put into making this decision,” Modrovich said last week in the tweet. Modrovich asked fans not to campaign for the show’s rescue, as they did last year after it was dropped by Fox.  0center_img Now playing: Watch this: Netflix TV and Movies Culture Home Entertainment Mobile Apps Mobile Share your voice Post a commentlast_img read more

In the same year, Soviet tanks were violently suppressing the Revolution in Hungary, when the Hungarian water polo team was winning over Russia in the Olympic pool in Melbourne. This event is sometimes described as the bloodiest water polo match in history. While telling the story of 1956 in part through fictional lead characters, the film-makers simultaneously recreated many of the key public events of the Revolution, including the huge demonstrations and the street fights in the of Budapest.

Review of DraftN Hardware

first_img 4 min read Belkin Gigabit AOSS secure connection system Nfiniti Notebook Adapter WLI-CB-G300N MANUFACTURER/ MODEL RangeMax NEXT Wireless Adapter Gigabit Edition (WN511T) Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. ROUTER September 1, 2006 (800) 2-BELKIN, www.belkin.com (800) 326-1688, www.dlink.com Wireless-N PC Card (WPC300N) CARD N1 Wireless Router $200 (router), $110 (card) Wi-Fi being so popular, wireless network vendors are constantly pushing the envelope. Last year, their pre-n wave of network adapters delivered the multi-pathing MIMO element of the upcoming 802.11n specification. Since the spec’s first draft was approved, they’ve launched another wave of so-called draft-n hardware using another 802.11n innovation–bonding transmission channels together to get throughput as high as 300Mbps. Draft-n hardware is supposed to make your network 12 times faster than 802.11g adapters and quadruple its range. (For more on Draft-n, see “Not-So-Rough Draft”)Sites vary widely, so don’t count on getting those numbers. Still, we got consistently good performances from the draft-n adapters we tested. We started by checking compatibility, and contrary to press reports, draft-n worked just fine with older 802.11g and MIMO hardware. We got better range than normal when mixing 802.11g and draft-n gear, and 54Mbps speeds with only occasional dips to 48Mbps or lower. That means you can upgrade your hardware piecemeal with little chance of complications.When using all draft-n gear, speeds ranged widely depending on distance and obstacles between router and PC card. Draft-n has two-dozen rollback levels and a tendency to roll up and down among the speed points as the environment changes. We hit 270Mbps occasionally, but a more reasonable expectation is something north of 100Mbps on a regular basis–more than enough for most business applications. The greatest fluctuations came when we mixed hardware from different makers. So if you have a favorite brand, you’re probably better off sticking with it for all your hardware.In terms of usability, Buffalo’s AirStation One-Touch Secure System, or AOSS, is a nice extra that lets you connect your AOSS-enabled adapters securely with the push of a button. It doesn’t require you to enter encryption settings on every computer you want connected. In related features, Netgear’s Touchless Security Wizard also simplifies the process of setting up your Wi-Fi security through the use of passphrase. We tried out the robust gigabit edition of the Netgear router, which will appeal to high-bandwidth users who are already using gigabit Ethernet adapters. The Linksys Small Business Wireless- N Router WRV4400N costs a bit more than the others because, besides a gigabit switch, it’s equipped with extensive quality and security features.Ease-of-use is paramount in network adapters, especially if you can’t fob installation off on an IT person. But vendors have done this before, and their step-by-step software wizards should guide you through the setup process. The front panel of the Belkin N1 Wireless Router features light-up icons so you can visually trace your router’s connections. Linksys also features well-designed Wireless Monitor software. As hassle-free as setup is, though, you still have to set up network encryption yourself. All the manufacturers offer free phone technical support to help resolve any problems.Manufacturers are still working on refining these products and can’t guarantee interoperability or upgradeability to an 802.11n spec that hasn’t been finalized. But they do plan to offer timely firmware upgrades to bring your equipment up-to-date. One of your first recourses should be to check for any available updates.If you’re not in pressing need of a Wi-Fi upgrade, it won’t hurt to wait for the next round of improved firmware or even for the finalization of the 802.11n specification. On the other hand, this hardware is affordable enough to use for a year and then upgrade again.
