According to a new report Apple’s business practices are coming under scrutiny at the Department of Justice as the company has been found to be pushing record labels to force music streaming services like Spotify to clamp down on free streaming. Apparently the company is doing this ahead of the much awaited relaunch of Beats Music, a streaming service that it acquired and now hopes to make a major player in the music streaming arena.

Things are heating up in the music streaming arena since the market is being hotly contested by services willing to get a piece of the pie. Google is just one of the many companies that are running a music streaming service and now the company has decided to double the free trial period for its unlimited Play Music All Access service. New users will now be able to try the service for two months with no charge.

Previously new users received a one month free Play Music All Access trial before their card was charged, or they decided to not pay for the service.

Google’s latest move allows users to use the service without any charge for two full months, they’ll be able to access the entire song library that hosts more than 30 million tracks.

Users won’t have to put up with advertisements and they will be able to stream and skip as many songs on demand as they want.

This deal appears to be only valid in certain regions and only for new users, but North America is covered so there’s nothing to worry about on that front. Once the two month free trial ends users can choose to pay $9.99 per month to continue the subscription or they can opt to not pay and thus stop using Google Play Music All Access.

t6ssensor-1024x864The Canon EOS Rebel T6i and T6s are the company’s latest somewhat entry-level cameras that was announced earlier this year and released last month. However as it turns out that there might be some issues with the camera’s sensors so if you have your eye on either camera, perhaps you might want to hold off on purchasing it for now, at least until Canon fixes it.

According to a report by LensRentals, they found that 6 out of the 20 models they’ve received have some issue with the sensor. Breaking it down, it’s 4 T6s models and 2 T6i models, which seems to indicate that the T6s might be the more problematic of the two, although admittedly the sample size is a bit too small to be conclusive.
