Last weekend marked a virtual Super Saturday: there was a record 24 hours for internet usage in the UK.

From 10.35am on Saturday 21 November to the same time the next day, TalkTalk customers used 41.2million gigabytes of data, driven largely by streaming, which has now spread across most multimedia platforms.

Not so long ago we would largely watch terrestrial television, buy physical copies of films we wanted to see or go to the cinema, and snap-up CDs or vinyl for our music fix. It’s worked wonders for decluttering homes.

Last weekend marked a virtual Super Saturday. There was a record 24 hours for internet usage.

From 10.35am on Saturday 21 November and until the same time the next day, TalkTalk customers used 41.2million gigabytes of data, driven largely by our new streaming habits, which has now spread across most multimedia platforms.

Whereas once upon a time not so long ago we would largely watch terrestrial television, buy physical copies of films we wanted to see or go to the cinema, and snap-up CDs or vinyl for our music fix, many now simply stream it.

TXT, Seo Taiji, and K-Pop’s Record of Youth

TXT’s breezy b-side track “We Lost The Summer” begins with the sound of a ticking clock. Then, a sparkling marimba beat and a young voice breathily lamenting a season forfeited to time and circumstance. As the bright dancehall rhythm intensifies, so do the mournful sentiments of loss and longing. It’s a song wrapped in shiny cellophane, the color of cotton candy—the taste of bitter lemon piths. For many teens, including the members of K-pop group TOMORROW X TOGETHER, that’s the reality of 2020; time ticks away, and yet we’re caught in an endless state of staticity, or an “eternal winter,” as TXT sings on the aptly titled pop tune from their new EP Minisode1: Blue Hour.

Tomorrow X Together, whose members range in international age from 18 to 21, have captured the complicated and oftentimes confusing feelings of adolescence through their music since their debut in 2019. “Crown” is

Q&A with Harry Shearer: Why he recorded a record all about Trump

A: Yes. It starts with the cliche. If you don’t pay for the product, you are the product and all the ramifications of that. And we live awash in free services now thanks to this thing. And we are the product. If somebody wanted to organize a movement, the movement would be, “You’re using my information, pay me for it.” And the answer would be, “Well, we’re giving you this thing and then you have to have a conversation.” “But you didn’t tell me what the price of the thing was, that you call free.” There actually is a price. They are selling personal information to all comers. And there’s this huge marketplace — a huge economic layer of middlemen who are trading, selling, sharing and marketing that data.

Q: What made you decide to make an entire album of Trump songs?

A: I do a weekly radio show and

Zynga reports record revenue and strong user growth while still losing $122M

Zynga’s revenue grew to a record $503 million (up 46% year-over-year) in the third quarter, with bookings of $628 million (up 59%), according to its latest earnings report. It also had its best mobile daily active user (31 million) and monthly active user (83 million) numbers in six years.

But things weren’t all rosy: The company also reported a net loss of $122 million. That compares to net income of $230 million during the same period last year, though that was boosted by the sale of Zynga’s building in San Francisco. As of 4:44 p.m. Eastern, shares were down 4.9% in after-hours trading.

Before earnings were released, CEO Frank Gibeau told me that although growth has become more normal after the pandemic caused “that huge jump” in usage during the late spring and early summer, “Engagement remains elevated and monetization remains elevated. Folks that discovered mobile gaming for the first
