Why 2019 Was the Year Taylor Swift Couldnt Stop Winning

As she stared down at yet another Artist of the Year trophy, Taylor Swift took a moment to get real about the preceding 12 months.  “The last year of my life has had some of the most amazing times and also some of the hardest things I’ve gone through in my life,” the pop star shared with the American Music Award audience last month. “This year for me has been a lot. It’s been a lot of good, a lot of really complicated.”  The complicated is somewhat easy to deduce: There’s the whole Scooter Braun...

Shake up your routine with help from YouTube creators

When I wake up, the first thing I do is say, “Hey Google, good morning,” and the Google Assistant gives me the weather report, tells me how long my commute will take, and turns on the news. This is something we call a Routine, which means one command will set a bunch of actions in motion. The Google Assistant has a bunch of ready-made Routines, or you can make a Custom Routine, as my teammate recently did when he threw a party.
