Disney films are coming to Netflix, BT shares some Wi-Fi hotspot facts, and is Facebook Home in trouble? The latest technology news from broadbandchoices.co.uk.
BT reaches five million hotspots
BT has announced that its public Wi-Fi network has now reached five million hotspots across the UK and Ireland.
Over the last year, the company has added more than 20,000 new hotspots, and more than 400 million connections have been made across the Wi-Fi network.
Between April 2012 and March 2013, 13 petabytes of data were used across the network. According to BT, that's the equivalent of downloading 3.9billion MP3s, or streaming The Hobbit non-stop for 1,042 years. I'm not sure why you'd want to do that though - the movie didn't even have a proper ending.
Disney comes to Netflix
Speaking of movies, video on-demand service Netflix has added Disney films to its library at last. That means subscribers can now watch Disney classics like Dumbo and The Aristocats, as well as Disney-Pixar hits, including Wall-E and Ratatouille, and live-action films like Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.
Netflix has also revealed that next year it will add more films from Disney, Marvel and Dreamworks, including The War Horse, Avengers Assemble, John Carter and The Muppets.

Is Facebook Home a flop?
Facebook Home launched last month to great fanfare, but reports suggest it is struggling to find an audience. The app, which turns Android handsets into 'Facebook phones', with the user's news feed available on the home screen, has just hit one million downloads - below some experts' expectations.
Reviews haven't been positive either, with more than half of the 16,000 plus reviews on the Google Play app store giving it just one star out of five. And in the US there's even more bad news for Facebook, as mobile network operator AT&T has dropped the HTC First - the first phone to come with Facebook Home pre-installed - entirely.

Coffee with Apple CEO auction passes $600,000
A few weeks ago, we reported on a charity auction for a half-hour coffee with Tim Cook - the CEO of Apple. Time for an update.
With the auction drawing to a close - it ends 9pm tonight - bidding seems to have gone into overdrive. The top offer at the time of writing now sits at a staggering $605,000 (£395,000) - that's more than $20,000 (£13,000) a minute. Blimey - for that money, we hope it's at least good coffee.
