In a wide-ranging interview, Nilay Patel of The Verge speaks with Bill Baxter, chief technology officer of Vizio, about what the company thinks of some TV vendors adding support for Apple's AirPlay 2, and other things.

WIRTW #524 (the “total disaster” edition)

Any week Rhett Miller releases new music into the world is a week worth celebrating. Earlier this week Rhett released "Total Disaster," the first song of his upcoming album, The Messenger, due out November 9. It's a brilliantly sad song about the mess one can make of one's life and how it impacts those around you. In fact, the entire album promises to be a bit on the darker side. A few months ago, on Chris Shiflett's "Walking the Floor" podcast, Rhett talked about some of the album's themes: [T...

Can You Really Get "Addicted" to Tattoos?

When celebrity piercer Brian Keith Thompson started getting tattoos in the late 1990s, his family sat him down for an intervention. "They were concerned that I was covering large portions of my body," he told POPSUGAR. Later, he was arrested, and even the jaded detectives who booked him offered words of warning. "They were like, 'Dude, what are you doing with those big tattoos? You're never going to be able to get a job. You're going to be an outcast.'" For Thompson, that was precisely the poin...

Punk band Face to Face goes acoustic with its new ‘Hold Fast’ album and tour

Normally when Face to Face frontman Trever Keith hits the stage, it’s wild. Spit and sweat are flying everywhere, fans are passionately screaming along to Keith’s vocals, moshing hard in the pit and crowd surfing, hurling their flailing bodies over the barrier. For this upcoming tour, however, things will be a bit different as the Victorville-based punk rock band has stripped down and rearranged some of its biggest hits and fan favorites that span the quartet’s 27-year career for its first acous...

The Popdose Interview: Elephant Rifle

Let me call it early: anybody who’s anybody who considers themselves a devotee of punk rock will consider Hunk, the recently announced third full-length from Reno quartet Elephant Rifle, to be one of the most anticipated records of 2018. That’s on the record, Skippy. While Party Child, the group’s debut, was great, the band really came into its own on 2015’s Ivory, which was epic and scorched Earth. Since I heard the record’s opener, “Bone Voyage,” a track that burns itself into punks’ memories ...

John Lawson of Watching Amazon: Non-stop News from Amazon Provides Non-stop Lessons for SMBs

So much that I’ve been in the process (a long process …) of writing a book on how this one company has and continues to change the rules of customer engagement for almost every business. And as the years go by, maybe the most fascinating thing about Amazon is that the number of ways they are impacting customer expectations for engaging with vendors grows larger and come faster as time goes on.

‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Sequel Is Being Written

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is the kind of fun, self-aware, stylish summer popcorn movie we don’t see often enough. Director Guy Ritchie‘s adaptation of Sam Rolfe‘s television series is one charismatic film with three leads we wouldn’t mind watching save the world, in impeccable style, every couple of years. Unfortunately, the slick action-comedy didn’t perform as well as it should’ve at the box-office back in 2015, making the odds of a sequel appear unlikely. The makers of the film are still keen ...
