  1. depeche-mode-dressed-in-black-1698598583

    Depeche Mode performed at Madison Square Garden last night, the latest stop on their tour in support of their most recent album Memento Mori. Halfway through the set, they did Black Celebration track “Dressed In Black” for the first time in 13 years, since it was a regular feature of their 2009-2010 set list. Only Martin Gore and touring keyboardist Peter Gordeno were on-stage for the performance. Watch video below.

    Ed Sheeran closed out the 2023 leg of his +–=÷× Tour at Allegiant Stadium outside Las Vegas on Saturday night, and he brought out the Killers’ Brandon Flowers to do a couple songs with him. They started out by performing “Mr. Brightside,” which Sheeran sang earlier this year when he popped up unexpectedly in a Nashville karaoke bar. Flowers then stuck around for Sheeran’s own “Castle On The Hill.” (And yes, Sheeran was dressed as Chucky for Halloween.) Watch video below.

    Foo Fighters were the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend — it was their ninth appearance on the show. They did two tracks, “Rescued” and “The Glass,” both off this year’s But Here We Are. Christopher Walken introduced the former, coming back to recreate his viral introduction from 2003, this time placing the emphasis on their name in the right spot. H.E.R. joined Foos for “The Glass.”

  4. The new Android logo.

    Does anybody care about Android 14?

    This year's release of the world's most popular operating system feels like one of the smallest ever, bringing just a handful of new features. Even during the Android portion of Google's big I/O keynote, Google spent most of its time showing off a new generative AI feature that creates wallpapers for you, as if there aren't enough wallpapers in the world.

    Last year's Android 13 release felt small, but that was because it was the second major Android OS release that year. Android 12L—the big tablet and foldable release—came out earlier. What's Android 14's excuse? We're not really sure. We still have a few things to go over, though, like new lock screen customizations, genuinely exciting changes to the way the back button works, and a pile of under-the-hood changes.

  5. Intel's Meteor Lake laptop CPUs launch this December, and they'll be facing competition from more high-end Arm processors.

    Chip companies like Qualcomm, Nvidia, and AMD are all either planning or said to be planning another attempt at making Arm chips for the consumer PC market. Qualcomm is leading the charge in mid-2024 with its Snapdragon X Elite and a new CPU architecture called Oryon. And Reuters reported earlier this week that Nvidia and AMD are targeting a 2025 release window for their own Arm chips for Windows PCs.

    If these companies successfully get their chips into PCs, it would mostly come at Intel's expense. But Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger doesn't seem worried about it yet, as he said on the company's most recent earnings call (via Seeking Alpha).

    "Arm and Windows client alternatives, generally, they've been relegated to pretty insignificant roles in the PC business," said Gelsinger. "And we take all competition seriously. But I think history as our guide here, we don't see these potentially being all that significant overall. Our momentum is strong. We have a strong roadmap."

  6. Laura-Jane-Grace-1698432698.jpeg

    Laura Jane Grace grew up as a military brat, but she’ll always be associated with the city of Gainesville and with its still-vibrant punk scene. Grace moved to Gainesville at 18, and that’s where she formed Against Me!, one of the best American punk bands of the last quarter-century or so. She’s written plenty of songs about her intense relationship with Gainesville and with Florida in general, but now the mayor of Gainesville has declared today to be Laura Jane Grace Day. Hopefully, she’ll feel a little more welcome there now.
