T-Mobile said it added 1.65 million net connections in the first quarter with 1.02 million branded postpaid additions as its results were better than expected.

The company reported first quarter revenue of $11.1 billion, up 6% from a year ago, with net income of $908 million and earnings per share of $1.06 a share.

Wall Street was expecting T-Mobile to report first quarter non-GAAP earnings of 91 cents a share on revenue of $11 billion.

Simply put, T-Mobile appears to be taking share and keeping its customers with a branded postpaid phone churn of 0.88%.

Verizon and AT&T added fewer phone net adds than T-Mobile, but have been adding extra lines for wearables.

On 5G, T-Mobile said it plans to have its standards based 5G network across the U.S. in 2020. In 2019, T-Mobile said it will launch its 5G network on 600 MHz in the second half of the year.

As for the outlook, T-Mobile said it expects to add 3.1 million to 3.7 million branded postpaid net additions. The company had projected 2.6 million to 3.6 million branded postpaid net adds. Adjusted EBITDA will be between $12.7 billion to $13.2 billion.

How To Earn Microsoft Reward Points While Playing Your Xbox Series X|S

Published

on

If you have an Xbox Series X or S, that means you already have a Microsoft account, and, presumably, you’ve linked the account to your console. If you haven’t, you’ll need to sign into the Microsoft account you want to use for earning rewards, so that when you play games and make purchases, the points go toward that particular email address. You can check out the points you’ve already earned, as well as various ways to earn more points, by heading over to the Microsoft Rewards user portal on the Bing website. You can also use the Microsoft Rewards app on Xbox.

If you want to grow your points by playing Xbox games, you’ll need to sign up for the Xbox Game Pass subscription, which provides customers with a large library of games they can play, as well as some other perks. Points are earned by completing quests in games that are available in the Game Pass library. Microsoft says you can view these quests in the Rewards app under the Xbox Games Pass section. If you haven’t yet downloaded the app, you can get a snapshot look at how the rewards process works on the Xbox Games Pass Quests web page.

According to Microsoft, it adds new quests to this section of the Rewards app on a daily basis. Keep in mind that you’ll need to manually head over to that part of the app when you finish a quest in order to redeem the points. Once those points have been applied to your account, however, you’ll be able to redeem them for rewards within the same app.

The 1993 Aston Martin Concept Car Perfect For Any James Bond Villain

Published

on

Cream leather, chrome, white dials, and a thin-rimmed steering wheel tell the story of an Art Deco cabin modernized for the mid-1990s. The dashboard, pedals, and wheel featured extensive nickel plating, says David Dowsey, while the dashboard was made from a single piece of laminated beech wood.

According to a Discovery documentary about Lagonda — and in what must have felt thoroughly futuristic at the time — the concept featured an integrated satellite navigation system and built-in laptop computers for rear passengers (or Bond villains) to work on. A final flourish saw the car’s steering wheel move out of the way when the driver’s door was opened.

Although it would surely have been toned down for a production version, the concept’s retro interior details are reminiscent of the Jaguar S-Type that arrived in 1999. At the time, both Jaguar and Aston Martin (as well as Land Rover, Lincoln, and Volvo) were part of the Ford-owned Premier Automotive Group.

Netflix And GM Have Teamed-Up For A New Super Bowl 2023 Ad Featuring Will Ferrell

Published

on

According to a press release from General Motors, the auto giant teamed up with Netflix during past championship games to show off its then-brand-new Ultium EV platform. This year, the ads feature former “Saturday Night Live” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” star Will Ferrell driving around a new GMC Sierra EV in the Netflix original “Army of the Dead.” An ad also features Will Ferrell in the back of a Chevy Blazer EV in the “Squid Game” universe.

Netflix says that it’s already committed to putting as many EVs in its original programming as it can. As such, a Chevy Bolt will be present in an upcoming season of “Love is Blind,” a Bolt EUV will appear in “The Brothers Sun,” a GMC Hummer will star in “Queer Eye,” and Rob Lowe will drive around a Cadillac Lyriq in “Unstable.” 

Blatant product placement can be hit or miss, especially when it comes to a huge financial decision like a car. However, stuffing shows full of EVs with the help of GM is certainly one way to get people talking about electric cars.
