Bitcoin price just tipped because of Warren Buffet’s willful ignorance

Bitcoin price and the prices of other cryptocurrencies jolted in opposite directions today because of a Warren Buffet interview. The interview took place on CNBC - where money news teams recently had their hands on the pedal earlier this week as well. This same network released an absurd video on how to purchase Ripple on Poloniex as well as a series of tone deaf statements about how "big" Ripple was compared to Bitcoin earlier this week.

Ripple will not supplant Bitcoin if its price hits $7

CNBC's report on Ripple and Bitcoin this week continues to take effect in hereto unforeseen ways.

Hannibal season 3 to be finale for hit NBC show

Bad news for die-hard fans of the NBC show Hannibal, as it was revealed today that the studio has not renewed it for another season, meaning the current third season will be its last.

NBCU tipped in standalone comedy subscription service effort

NBCU tipped in standalone comedy subscription service effort

For the longest time, cord-cutting (getting rid of cable) meant jumping through a lot of hoops and possibly resorting to less than kosher methods for getting one's entertainment fix. Networks have been slow to embrace technological changes, but now that consumers have moved in such a great mass toward the technology most convenient to them (mobile devices, primarily), some daring companies have decided to cater to them, and now the ball has begun rolling. Latest to contemplate launching a standalone subscription video service is NBCUniversal.

Netflix scores NBC’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”

Netflix, which just recently announced that it'll be bringing about a fourth season of previously cancelled series Longmire, has another show inbound: NBC's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The show is the brainchild of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and if you haven't heard of it before, that's likely because it hasn't aired yet. The show was set to arrive on NBC (you can see a "Coming Soon" page on the network's website) but it seems that has changed, with it being reported that Netflix has stepped in to take over.
