MC2 Post 1816 Closing Open Doors and Getting Competitive is Part of the GAME

Yahoo To Block Facebook, Google Accounts To Access Services

3/5/2014 11:54 AM ET

Yahoo will gradually stop permitting users to enjoy their online services by logging in with Facebook or Google IDs, according to reports.

Reports indicate Yahoo will eventually remove the option to log in to its services using Facebook and Google login IDs, starting with "Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick 'Em," a service focused on college basketball. The web portal will ask users who want to use photo sharing site Flickr and other Yahoo services to create a new Yahoo ID.



Roku takes on Chromecast with $49.99 Streaming Stick


Roku's streaming TV stick is becoming a lot more competitive with the Chromecast.

Beginning today, Roku is selling a new version of the Roku Streaming Stick that costs only $49.99, down from an initial selling price of $99.99 for the original model in 2012. While that's still more expensive than the $35 Chromecast, it'll include access to a robust lineup of channels and apps, all while Google is still just beginning to build out the Chromecast's offerings. The Streaming Stick supports 1080p and now also comes with a remote — though the remote's inclusion of shortcuts to the Blockbuster and M-Go apps is fairly strange beside its Netflix and Amazon buttons.


What’s New on Netflix Streaming This Month: March 2014


The Silence of the Lambs
This movie, which swept the Oscars, winning Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, and Screenplay.

Roman Holiday
Starring Audrey Hepburn as a princess and Gregory Peck as the newspaperman who ends up shuttling her around Rome, Roman Holiday is charming and romantic—just like you'd expect an Audrey Hepburn–Gregory Peck movie to be.

Hepburn won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge
The only Freddy Krueger movie currently on Netflix.

 Mad Men, Season Six (available March 30)
The first part of Mad Men's seventh season will premiere April 13. (Like with Breaking Bad, AMC has divided its hit show's final season into two.) Before then, catch up with last year's run and read all of Vulture's recaps here.

The Returned, Season One
ABC heavily advertised a new show with a similar premise, Resurrection, during this week's Oscar ceremony.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
The only Stanley Kubrick movie currently on Netflix.

RIP, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Mud (available March 21)
Matthew McConaughey as a man on the run who is discovered by two boys. Directed by Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter), it's McConaughey at his grimy and Southern finest — he doesn't appear to be trying too hard at all, and that makes the performance all the better.

New Seasons of TV:

Pokemon: Indigo League
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Season 6, available March 7)
Breaking Amish (Season 1, available March 12)
Adventure Time (Season 2, available March 30)
