WWE (Elbow) Drops Price of Monthly Streaming Service

To help encourage more subscribers to join up, the WWE is—oddly—making it easier for them to quit. The WWE is abandoning its previous plan that required WWE Network subscribers to sign up for a six-month commitment if they wanted to enjoy lower monthly pricing. Previously, doing so would grant one access to all of the WWE Network’s programming for a mere $9.99 monthly fee. If you wanted a month-to-month deal that you could cancel at any time, you’d have to pay $12.99 monthly. – David Murphy,PCMag

XBMC Changes Name to Kodi, Reduces Trademark Confusion

It’s a fair argument: If the name of one’s application, Xbox Media Center, seems to suggest that the app runs on one’s Xbox gaming consoles—which it doesn’t really do right now—then perhaps it’s time for a rebranding? […] “Furthermore, while the software still acts as a media center, it also hosts addons, loads games, streams content to and from numerous devices, and can ultimately act as a complete replacement for whatever platform it is hosted on. Indeed, XBMC today is far more an Entertainment Center than a simple Media Center,” reads a blog post by Kodi community/project manager Nathan Betzen. […] The move to the new Kodi branding shouldn’t affect use of the app at all, save for the obvious changing of the splash screen that announces the app’s title. The next version of the app will be Kodi 14, not XBMC 14. More importantly, those looking to make fan sites in tribute to Kodi will now have a clearer definition of just what “confusing” means in regards to use of the Kodi name—specifically, that a site can do that so long as its use “doesn’t confuse other users and the community.” – David Murphy,PCMag
