The Flight Attendant season 2: Everything we know about the HBO Max series

Credit: WarnerMedia The Flight Attendant, one of HBO Max‘s first original series after the WarnerMedia streamer launched in May 2020, became a huge, buzz-worthy hit, and a welcome distraction in the early, uncertain days of COVID-19. Kaley Cuoco, best known for roles in 8 Simple Rules and The Big Bang Theory, shone brightly as the star of this sleeper hit about a flight attendant pulled into a dark world of murder and espionage after a bender overseas. Cuoco nabbed well-deserved Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her inspired performance. Equal parts Alfred Hitchcock and workplace comedy, The Flight Attendant was a 2020 standout. The first season of The Flight Attendant premiered November 26, 2020, on HBO Max. It was HBO Max’s number one series overall during its run. The show was a huge hit with critics too, and it earned several award nominations. With season 1 well behind us, what’s next? Read on for everything we know about The Flight Attendant season 2.

Are iPhone buyers more loyal than Android buyers?

Credit: Robert Triggs / Android Authority Opinion post by Eric Zeman The US smartphone market has reached a sort of balance in the last couple of years. As many people in the US now buy devices running Apple’s iOS as they do buy devices running Google’s Android, giving each platform roughly 50% of the market. It didn’t use to be that way, however; the balance has tipped in favor of iOS recently, allowing it to steal ground from Android. What’s behind the slow erosion of Android’s market share in the US? Loyalty, according to new data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. Small numbers make a big difference Credit: Robert Triggs / Android Authority As recently as 2017, Android held about two-thirds of the US market for smartphones, says CIRP’s research, leaving iOS with about one-third of the market. At that time, the Android platform enjoyed a loyalty rating of about 91% while iOS’s loyalty rating was about 86%.
