Comments Now playing: Watch this: 11 Apple’s streaming service could take on Netflix Apple The video service is expected to launch by the summer, according to a report by Bloomberg Wednesday, citing unnamed people familiar with the plan. Stars working with Apple on original programming — including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner and J.J. Abrams — are invited to the March event. The unveiling of the news subscription service was expected to headline the presentation at the company’s Apple Park campus, in the Steve Jobs Theater, according to a Tuesday report by BuzzFeed News. But it added that two other highly anticipated announcements — next-generation AirPods and a new iPad Mini — would be no-shows. Apple declined to comment Tuesday on the details of BuzzFeed’s report. Apple’s news subscription service was in the news earlier this week for the aggressive terms it’s reportedly putting to news publishers. A report from The Wall Street Journal citing sources said Apple is asking publishers to agree to such terms as letting the tech giant keep half the service’s revenue. The news and video service would join the company’s Apple Music monthly subscription service for all-you-can-eat tunes on demand. Apple also operates in digital media through iTunes and its App Store. First published Feb. 12 at 2:06 p.m. PT. Update Feb. 13 at 4:25 p.m. PT: Adds report about video service plans.

James Martin/CNET Apple is expected to unveil its rumored video service and a news subscription service at an event March 25 at its Cupertino, California, campus, according to reports this week. But don’t expect to see revamped Airpods or a new iPad Mini, one report said.Apple didn’t respond to a message seeking comment about the video service details. Both video and news are part of an Apple push to build up its services chops, as sales of its all-important iPhone have begun to sputter. Apple has made headlines over the last year with eyebrow-raising deals for the rumored TV service, lining up big-name projects from Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, M. Night Shyamalan and Steven Spielberg, among many others. And the iPhone maker’s spin on a “Spotify for news” has been expected since Apple bought news subscription aggregator Texture last year.

Sony PlayStation 4 Aug 29 • Save up to $500 on Microsoft Surface laptops and tablets 5:18 For students who are looking forward to Borderlands 3 more than hitting the books imminently, you can send them off with some great gaming gear to cushion the blow. (Only to use in their spare time, of course!) At a loss as to what will thrill them? Here are some suggestions to get you started, no matter how little — or how much — you want to spend.

Microsoft Xbox One X $299 at Amazon Smaller accessories are welcome in a cramped dorm room or on an undersize desk; 10-keyless (TKL) keyboards that ditch the number pad are a perfect solution. The waterproof K561 uses Outemu Blue switches that are tactile, clicky and loud — hopefully the new roommate won’t care about that.

Help your favorite undergrad overcome the frustration of using mainstream game controllers. Microsoft’s $100 Xbox Adaptive Controller maps all the typical controller functions to a design that requires less coordination to operate. While it works with an Xbox console, it also works with PC games. $369 Aug 30 • Hate subscription software? Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements are on sale for $60 each Lenovo Legion Y740 Sarah Tew/CNET Yes, both the PS4 and Xbox are senior citizens in game console terms. But that also means they’re mature platforms with giant game libraries. The PS4 Slim delivers the base PlayStation experience in a compact wedge-shaped console that can connect to any HDTV. Get this over the Xbox for exclusives like Spider-Man, God of War, the Uncharted series, The Last of Us, Bloodborne and Horizon Zero Dawn. (You could also opt for the 4K-capable PS4 Pro, but it’s arguably overkill for the dorm — especially for TVs under 55 inches.) James Martin/CNET Mobile Edge makes gaming backpacks for Alienware and Razer, but the $104 Core bag is all its own. It can hold up to 17.3-inch laptops (though superthick ones are snug), has extra padding on the straps and back keep things as comfortable as possible, and there are places for all your gaming accessories and external cables for phone or tablet charging as well as room for the day-to-day schlep-arounds. It comes in two styles: one with a molded front and another with a Velcro panel to display team badges or other patches.

Relatively speaking. 1 Redragon K561 Visnu Sarah Tew/CNET Sarah Tew/CNET Now playing: Watch this: Review • Xbox One X review: Is it worthy of the hype? J. Kaminski/CNET Sure, you could park your students in uncomfortable dorm furniture, but if you feel like pampering them for long days in the seat, the Titan is the most comfortable gaming chair we’ve parked our posteriors in — and it can handle a linebacker-size kid, up to 6-foot-7 inches and 290 pounds.

There are currently three versions of the Xbox One right now, but the One S is the best one to get if you’re campus-bound. Xbox’s current lineup of exclusives is generally not as impressive as the PS4’s, but the key for this console (if you have a broadband connection) is to sign up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It’s effectively a “Netflix for games” that gives you a steady stream of new and classic titles to play at any given time. We’d recommend skipping the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, which is identical except that it doesn’t have a Blu-ray drive. It’s not much cheaper, and the ability to play used or borrowed disc-based games (and movies) still comes in handy. The Xbox One X is the most muscular console currently on the market, but — again — its 4K gaming features are probably overkill for basic campus gaming.

But it provides an immersive VR experience with great controls and full positional tracking — requiring no phone, PC or game console — and costs about $400, which isn’t bad. Amazon Aloysius Low/CNET Read Dell G5 15 review Xbox One S $82 at Amazon Secretlab Titan 2020 Series If you’re paying the bills for higher education, the thought of another big outlay probably makes you shudder. The 15-inch Dell G5 is one of the best budget gaming laptops we’ve tested, and it starts at only about $750. Not a cheap gift, but a great value. For snatching moments between classes or on lunch break, get a portable console: the Nintendo Switch. But if they’re willing to take an IOU, you may want to wait until closer to the end of September to give them a Switch Lite, which will be lighter on your wallet at $200 and lighter in their backpacks, too. The catch is they won’t be able to connect to a bigger screen to play or swap out the controllers. If you do go for the original, make sure it’s the new model with extended battery life.
