The Gentleman – Guy Ritchie
It’s been some time since I’ve dropped in on the Weekend Roundup, yet I’m evolving that. This time with another film recommendation. Fellow Ritchie is back with his thirteenth film, The Gentleman, scheduled to hit theaters January 24th. As an aside, it seems like Guy hasn’t dropped a film in some time however my IMDB search just educated me he coordinated Aladdin a year ago (OK, bizarre?) Judging by the see, The Gentleman hopes to have all the components that have made his way of filmmaking so particular – an extremely sharp content, a fascinating heist, mind-twisting camera deceives that make you interruption and marvel, “How’d they do that?”, also a top pick cast playing characters you’ll presumably emulate for quite a long time. Toss in a rich shading range, all the luxurious plaid, and Guy back in his secret stash – this seems as though a clear big-screen watch for me. Also, here’s the what tops off an already good thing – HODINKEE’s own Frank Roda is supposed to show up. Would you be able to discover him in the preview?

Facebook And Google Were Victims Of $100M Payment Scam – Fortune
This is certainly not another story however it is somewhat of an enlightening one. We frequently think to remind guardians and family members to be careful with phishing tricks when discussing innovation. Those more technically knowledgeable among us can’t help thinking about how anybody could succumb to fake messages requesting that we sign in to natural sites. All things considered, it turns out anybody could be defenseless, including two of the greatest tech companies on the planet, who were bilked out of $100M through phony solicitations for computer items. While the Justice Department kept the companies private, Fortune recognized them. Their revealing brought up the issue, regardless of whether $100M isn’t a lot to them, do they have an obligation to come clean to people in general about being duped?
