Taylor Swift just dropped a new song and it’s ‘Gorgeous’

TwitterFacebook

Swifties, we’ve got another one.

Taylor Swift has dropped a brand new track from her highly anticipated sixth album Reputation, dubbed “Gorgeous.”

It’s the third track released from the pop monarch’s upcoming album, following “Look What You Made Me Do,” and “Ready for It,” released earlier this year.

Have a listen:

With a vibe akin to Yazoo’s ’80s classic “Only You,” it’s a track that throws back to more pop-sensitive singles like 1989‘s “Blank Space,” — pretty different from the Peaches-meets-Fergie lead single, and thumper of a follow-up. Read more…

Lawmakers try their hand at banning ticketing bots, but it’s not the end of them

TwitterFacebook

The pain of narrowly missing out on concert tickets is an all too common feeling.

While we might be quick to blame our reflexes, scalpers employing bots have been wreaking havoc in the now mostly digital ticket selling business. 

The Australian state of New South Wales will ban these ticket bots as part of laws passed on Wednesday, which makes it the first jurisdiction in the country to do so.

The Fair Trading Amendment (Ticket Scalping and Gift Cards) Bill 2017 outlaws the use of bots, while also capping the transaction cost of resales to 10 percent of its sale price. Read more…

Experts don’t know if the fake news problem will get more or less awful

TwitterFacebook

If you’re looking for good news about the future of false information on the internet, please close this little post and continue your search. Your eyes are wasting their time here. 

A Pew Research Center study published on Thursday polled more than 1,000 experts of various kinds on how they view the future of fake news. 

Here’s the survey question:

The results are decidedly mixed.

Just over 50 percent of respondents said the media environment won’t improve, while just under 50 percent said it will. 

Why are some experts so pessimistic? According to the study, the two most common reasons are that the “fake news ecosystem preys on some of our deepest human instincts” and “our brains are not wired to contend with the pace of technological change.” Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Uber board member, media mogul, and sleep crusader Arianna Huffington wants you to turn off your phone.

That’s easier said than done, of course, so she’s teamed up with Samsung to make an app that will help you force yourself into it.

It’s called Thrive, and the goal, according to Huffington, is to provide “the tools to take a break from your phone to do whatever it is that makes you more human.” The Samsung-exclusive app isn’t out until December, but Huffington took the stage at Samsung’s Developer Conference to share more about how it works.  Read more…

Twitter shares its roadmap to curb abuse

TwitterFacebook

Twitter prides itself on being “what’s happening,” but unfortunately for the company’s users, what’s frequently happening is unchecked harassment. CEO Jack Dorsey apparently has plans to change all that, and today put forth a roadmap for curbing abuse on the social media platform. 

In an Oct. 19 post, the Twitter Safety team published a detailed calendar listing target dates and goals for changing the site’s rules. Taking it a step further, Twitter promised to share “regular, real-time updates” on its efforts to make the service “a safer place.”

Madison Reed just raised another $25 million to open hair color bars across the U.S.

 You get to a certain age, and if you’re remotely vain (and let’s face it, you are), you need to have your hair colored fairly frequently. You’re hardly alone. Roughly 75 percent of women in the United States color their hair, which today adds up to an $18 billion opportunity for brands like L’Oréal and Clairol. It did, anyway. Eating into a growing percentage of… Read More
