Welcome to Tuesday morning! It's a day of streaming service news, as Apple and Disney gear up to deliver their Netflix rivals.

Apple has been on a content-buying spree over the past year or so, because it seems it's almost ready to launch its Netflix competitor. According to Bloomberg reports, the tech giant is planning to roll out its TV+ subscription service in November, and it looks like it'll set you back $10 a month. The Financial Times says Cupertino is trying to pre-empt Disney Plus' debut, so TV+ could become available earlier than November 12th.

Stevens' colleagues pay respects in Supreme Court ceremony

Stevens' colleagues pay respects in Supreme Court ceremony Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has been remembered as a "brilliant man" with a "deep devotion to the rule of law" during a ceremony at the court where he served for nearly 35 years. Stevens died last week at age 99 and his body is in repose in the court's Great Hall. 

Apple apparently earmarked $6 billion of its budget to fund the upcoming service's original shows and movies. It's spending a lot of money in an attempt to make more money, particularly to contribute to its goal to reach $50 billion in service sales by 2020.

Supreme has unveiled its catalog for fall and winter 2019, and amid the usual eccentricities (champagne flutes and gold-plated dumbbells -- practically all my hobbies) is a BLU Burner Phone. It appears to be a gussied-up Zoey 2.4, a pretty basic candybar device with a 2.4-inch screen, 3G data, a VGA camera and 128MB of (thankfully expandable) storage. You are paying for that Supreme livery, and not much else. But you knew that already.

There's no mention of pricing. The Zoey 2.4 normally costs just $33 unlocked.

It won't be 33 bucks.

It didn't want to upset users or officials.

Google's increased focus on privacy led it to quietly drop a service that offered signal-strength and data-speed detail to carriers. Reuters sources have learned the tech giant shut down Mobile Network Insights back in April. The data, for Android phones, was anonymized and required opting in to sharing location, usage and diagnostic info, but Google was reportedly worried the practice might raise hackles among users and government regulators.

Mobile Network Insights had only launched in March 2017, but was apparently valuable to providers. Google's feature was helpful precisely because of the sheer number of Android phones in the field.
