Important announcement: Cloverfield Paradox is now on Netflix for everyone’s viewing pleasure!

In a move that wowed and surprised Superbowl and Cloverfield fans alike, Netflix announced that the third installment of the thriller would be available to watch after the Superbowl. Yep, all this during the Superbowl show.

Cloverfield is a horror film franchise produced by J.J. Abrams. The Cloverfield Paradox, which just dropped today, is the anticipated third installment of the series. It stars Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Zhang Ziyi, and is directed by Julius Ona.

There is a fourth one supposedly in the works. At this rate, though, who knows when that movie might just drop.

OnePlus introduces Explorer Backpack — and I want it!

Launching along with the OnePlus 6T

All eyes will be on the OnePlus 6T launch at the end of this month, but my money will likely be spent on the accompanying backpack instead.

OnePlus revealed through its official forum that the new Explorer Backpack is set to be revealed on October 30, as well.

As you may or may not know, the tech startup is no stranger to creating sleek accessories to match whatever phone they have in stock; I myself had their first-generation backpack.

While it wasn’t the best backpack in the world — it wore out easily and got replaced by the more rugged Xiaomi backpack I use now — Project Manager Donna L. touts that this model will last for “years to come.”

There are no pictures of the interior, but it supposedly has multiple compartments, including a secret pocket on the back — which is important for a techie such as myself who has multiple gadgets at once.

Other features include a compartment with breathable vents, premium magnetic Fidlock, and two colors to choose from: Slate Black or Morandi Green.

Price and availability will hopefully be announced on stage in New York. I can already smell it.

Millennial parenting and the need for baby domain names

Parenting in 2018!

Published

Parenting in 2018 has certainly changed from when our parents did it. Millennials, most of which are digital natives, now have different priorities and considerations when it comes to naming their kids. Just how different? Well…

That’s right. According to a GoDaddy survey, domain names now play a big role in what parents consider when naming their child!

General sentiments have also changed. The same survey cites 48 percent of millennial parents, almost double the number of Gen X parents, believe that online media presence early in life is important for their kid.

In fact, even before their babies could walk, they’ve probably been posted about online by their millennial parents.

This is unsurprising because this generation grew up online. In fact, 58 percent of millennials are reported to have created their first online profile between the ages of 10 and 17. 

Hence the willingness for millennial parents to help their children create their own websites! The reasoning is simple: Most millennial parents believe that this will help their child when it comes to jobs searches and college applications in the future.

Some parents even go as far as buying the domain even before the child’s birth. Top reasons for doing so include reserving the name for the future, to use an online baby book, and lastly, to utilize the domain as a tool to teach their kid about the internet.

GoDaddy trends expert Melissa Schneider explains, “It’s no longer enough to make sure that your baby is enrolled at the top elementary school at birth — parents today are claiming their child’s name and online identity to make sure that they’re set up for success down the line. More than ever, it’s essential to own your own identity on the internet, and millennials know that better than anyone else.”
