    Suggest you make it clear when an article is country specific. UK is nothing like this which I assume is for USA. You have lots of members outside the USA.

      Sorry Dave! Will try to keep that in mind the next time I do region-specific coverage.

    So does Amazon actually own MakeUseOf now or is it just an Amazon officially sanctioned mouthpiece?

    Oh, Airplane! FANTASTIC. I can never watch that too often. Humans is also worth watching: a wonderful exploration of the idea; very thought-provoking, and with a great cast. Gemma Chan and Elizabeth Berrington are especially brilliant.

      Humans is worth trying, for sure. I've yet to watch Airplane! but I've heard so much good about it that it's definitely on my list. Now that it's on Amazon, I guess I have no excuse not to watch it. :)

      Bond is all right, but I know a lot of people are indeed big fans. :) How about you?
