Article Title: Plex Media Player Now Doesn't Require a Subscription; Pass Users Get Kodi Plug-in

Plex has announced its new Kodi add-on so you can include your Plex library in Kodi (provided you're a Pass user).

PlexPass is a $4.99/mo subscription service!
Plex's player apps have not required a PlexPass sub to use for awhile now, but you do have to pay fix bucks for the app. Plex claims the apps are free but they only work for one minute if you don't have a PlexPass, or pay the one-time $5 "activation fee". They should just be up front and charge for the app at install.

Hitler was also named man of the year. It's not about who was the "best" person of the year just the most influential.

Yeah, but Time went all P.C. several years ago with their sections. Note that Rudolph Giuliani, mayor of NYC, was named Person of the year in 2001 because of the WTC attacks, when obviously Bin Laden himself was more influential.

That's why there's so much celebrity "news" in the news now, most of it is cheap fashion commentary or theories and supposition on their private lives (which can be as wild as they want, since it's not being reported as opinion).

Meh. It is being reported only as opinion/theory, I meant. Not as fact.

In 2013 Obama signed a bill which part of allows the use of propaganda in the USA legal again (made illegal in 1947). Which is why we have so much fake news now, media sources aren't required to fact check since that would expose the government backed fake news.

Not to mention it would cost money. That's why there's so much celebrity "news" in the news now, most of it is cheap fashion commentary or theories and supposition on their private lives (which can be as wild as they want, since it's not being reported as opinion).

What am I missing here... workers apply for a job, get the job, agree to and get paid a legal wage, get held accountable for what they do, and are sacked if they don't do the job. Am I missing something?

The problem is people unable to have a normal work-life balance and have a job at the same time. I have a relative who works for Wal-Mart. When she first got hired the company was actually CLOSED on Thanksgiving, in fact, they weren't even open 24 hours then. Since then, Wal-Mart has expanded their hours and started to be open now on holidays. They expect employees to work in a all-hands-on-deck fashion that leaves people with no way to enjoy the supposed "holidays" with their own loved ones. Can you imagine having a family and being told you have to work 9-5 on Thanksgiving? Even if you were an "evening Thanksgiving" type, that's not getting off early enough to actually cook a Thanksgiving meal from scratch. And would have the energy to anyway, after working 8 hours on what has become one of the busiest shopping days of the year thanks to Black Fri^H^H^HThursday?
