Here's an easy way to check which theaters in your area work with MoviePass's $10-a-month movie theater subscription

With the announcement that it would be slashing its prices to $10-a-month, MoviePass suddenly turned its subscription into a hot commodity. The service, which allows members to go to one movie a day in theaters, has seen its popularity skyrocket thanks to its new rock-bottom price. 

But for some, particularly those who don't live in cities, it might still be tough to tell whether the service is worth signing up for. After all, there's no point in paying for MoviePass if none of the theaters near you accept it.


How to find out if you might miss the solar eclipse because of bad weather

The United States will see a total solar eclipse on August 21 for the first time in decades. Some people are traveling hundreds of miles to cities in the line of totality, like Nashville, Tennessee and Salem, Oregon.

But there is one thing that could put a damper on the event: clouds.

Esri, an international supplier of geographic information system (GIS) software, has created a cloud-cover prediction map for the time of the eclipse in every state. Michael Zeiler, a geographer at Esri, is producing new maps every day leading up to the eclipse.


Solar eclipse die-hards use this clever trick to see totality longer than anyone else

For the first time in nearly 100 years, the shadow of a total solar eclipse is going to sweep across the United States.

The umbra — the darkest shadow cast by the moon blocking the sun — will appear in the Pacific Ocean and slice through 14 US states on Monday, August 21.

Starting around 10 a.m. PDT, parts of western Oregon will go dark in a condition called totality as the umbra travels east. The elliptical shadow will make its way to Idaho Falls by 11:33 MDT, hit Kansas City at 1 p.m. CDT, and begin to pass over Charleston, South Carolina, by about 2:45 p.m. EDT.

Although some eclipse fans spend 


THE END OF APPS: How Apple, Facebook, and Google are ushering in the next evolution of app experiences, and what that means for businesses (GOOG, GOOGL, AAPL, FB)

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

In 2009, Apple coined the phrase “there’s an app for that,” and within six years, its prophecy had been fulfilled.

Apps had become the primary way people navigate the internet, overtaking mobile and desktop web browsers. And now they account for the vast majority of time spent on mobile devices.


The hosts of Fox News' newest major show have been slamming Trump all week

Amid a sexual harassment scandal and rumors of its potential pending cancellation, one show on Fox News has drawn attention for its sharp criticism of President Donald Trump's handling of violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Fox News is currently considering shaking up its primetime lineup for the third time this year following the suspension of "Fox News Specialists" co-host Eric Bolling, who is on mandatory leave pending an investigation into allegations that he send lewd unsolicited text messages to several employees.

With Bolling at the helm of "Specialists," many media observers speculated that Fox was adding another pro-Trump platform to the network. The Washington Post


Amazon can borrow money more cheaply than Russia, Mexico and China (AMZN)

Amazon got a pretty sweet deal on its recent $16 billion debt financing.

The deal was so good, in fact, that a chunk of it ended up being better than what the governments of Russia, Mexico, Greece, Chile and China could've gotten, according to a report from Quartz's John Detrixhe.

The offering priced on Tuesday amid strong demand from investors, the Wall Street Journal reported. The company sold a $3.5 billion tranche of 10-year bonds at a 0.9-percentage-point yield-premium to Treasurys, below guidance set by underwriters, according to the WSJ.

The new Nokia 8 phone lets you take 'bothies' along with selfies — here’s what that means

Finnish phone maker HMD Global on Wednesday announced the Nokia 8, its latest smartphone to use the once-dominant Nokia brand, and its first aimed at the more premium side of the market. (In Europe, at least.)

The device looks like a fairly typical flagship phone in most respects: It’s got a strong chipset, a sharp display, dual cameras, and the like.

The one unusual feature of the Nokia 8 is something HMD calls "Dual-Sight." This lets you shoot photos and photos using the front- and rear-facing cameras at the same time. The result is a split-screen view that ideally looks something like this, according to HMD:

HMD is trying to call images taken with this camera mode "bothies." As in, a selfie, but with images from both sides. I think we can all agree that the less said about this, the better.


Cloudflare has stopped protecting a widely-reviled neo-Nazi website from cyber attacks

Cloudflare booted The Daily Stormer off of its paid service on Wednesday, a move that could leave the neo-Nazi website vulnerable to large scale cyber attacks.

Cloudflare's decision to stop providing service to the site — following days of controversy over the site's racist and abusive content — won't have an immediate effect. That's because the site is currently inaccessible, due to companies like GoDaddy and Google cancelling their domain name registry services for it.

But in the event the site finds someone willing to host it, the loss of Cloudflare protection could leave it exposed to s0-called distributed denial of service attacks, a technique in which legions of computers barrage a site with requests in the hopes of overwhelming it.


25 companies where candidates actually enjoy the job interview

Job interviews often get a bad rap.

Whether it's because candidates think they'll get hauled over the coals with impossible questions, or they're terrified of saying the wrong thing and making a really bad first impression, job candidates tend to dread the interview portion of the hiring process.

But as Glassdoor's recent list of The 50 Best Places to Interview in 2017 shows, interviews don't have to be a chore.

Anyone who has interviewed at a company may provide anonymous feedback on


You can now make calls on your Google Home for free

Google announced on Wednesday that it's bringing voice calls to Google Home with Google Assistant. Home users will be able to call anyone in their contacts or any business over Wi-Fi free of charge. To make a call, just use the requisite "Hey Google" and then chat to your hearts content. 

The feature is rolling out in the US and Canada today. For now, the person on the other end of your call will see "Unknown" or "No caller ID," but Google says this will be fixed by the end of the year. If you're a Google Voice or Project Fi user, you can choose to display your cell number by going into the Assistant settings in the Google Home app.

Amazon's Alexa introduced voice calling in May of this year but with a catch – Alexa can only make calls to contacts who also have an Alexa device. Amazon was the original pioneer of the smart speaker but has since had to play leapfrog with Google. In May,
