Why are pop songs getting sadder than they used to be?

Are popular songs today happier or sadder than they were 50 years ago? In recent years, the availability of large digital datasets online and the relative ease of processing them means that we can now give precise and informed answers to questions such as this. A straightforward way to measure the emotional content of a text is just to count how many emotion words are present. How many times are negative-emotion words – 'pain', 'hate' or 'sorrow' – used? How many times are words associated with ...

Whoa, Camila Cabello Just Swapped Her Rapunzel Hair For a Supershort Bob

Camila Cabello is hopping on the ever-growing bob haircut bandwagon - well, sort of. After taking a one-week hiatus from social media, the "Living Proof" singer returned to Instagram with a supershort, chin-grazing hairstyle, which she accessorized with a pearl- and rhinestone-adorned barrette (and quite the impressive cat-eye, might we add). In the caption, Cabello explained that the selfie was taken behind the scenes on a music video shoot, meaning her flirty bob hairstyle is most likely jus...

Amazon's Echo Dot With Clock makes the best budget smart speaker even better

  Amazon released its Echo Dot with Clock in October. While technically still a 3rd-generation device, this is the fourth iteration of Amazon's most popular smart speaker, the Echo Dot.  The Echo Dot with Clock is identical to the exceptional Echo Dot 3rd Gen, but with one small addition: There's an LED clock on the side. I've been using it as a bedside clock for the past week, and it's definitely worth its $59.99 list price. Read our full review of the Amazon Echo Dot With Clock to see exactl...
