You may remember my post about HBO’s True Detective titles last year, and how much we all loved them.

Calbuco

As a kid, I remember being terrified of volcanoes, and always thinking of how horrible an eruption would look like.

Frenetically we rushed to the only non-forested place to get a decent view of the show. We quickly put every bit of camera-equipment we could find on the constantly growing mushroom-cloud.

Apple knew this, and as always, didn’t want to stay behind. And while Tidal was making noise, they were working quietly in a new service released yesterday during WWDC15. Apple Music.

Point Break. The remake.

You know the saying, there are some classic movies that you simply don’t touch. No matter how fun the idea of a remake might be… Point Break is one of those culture classics that defined a generation, made surfing even cooler and gave us those iconic and badass president masks. This remake, schedule to drop on Christmas, feels a little different than the original – they went from surfing to every extreme sport you can think of – but looks interesting enough to watch. Here’s a little preview…
