Four Tet - Live at Alexandra Palace London, 8th and 9th May 2019 Music Album Reviews

Kieran Hebden’s new live album reminds us that he is a stellar performer, not just a producer.
The British producer Kieran Hebden has one of the most distinctive signatures in electronic music. First, a gravelly drum machine; then, some jewel-toned synth pads; and, finally, a strip of harp or chimes or wordless cooing, unspooling like wrinkled ribbon.





Twitter Gets A Revamped Layout In Years

Micro blogging site Twitter has launched its first major website redesign in seven years. It is a subtly streamlines experience that is more in line with the company’s app. As of July 15, 2019, the desktop site is for all the users and has a responsive design that can shrink down to a simple tweet stream. The new feature has a rejigged side navigation that also has bookmarks and lists along with more options for the popular dark mode display that replaces white as the dominant background with a darker tone.

The actual goal behind the fresh changes in consistency as the social networking site has been having the old look since a long time next to its native iOS and Android apps. The new layout and functionality is significant but Twitter’s designers said that the actual extent of the changes is hidden under the hood. As a part of the project, the makers have moved a new technical stack which means the underlying frameworks and programming languages are more suited to the demands of contemporary web design.

The lead designer of Twitter on the project said, “This was built from the ground up. And it’s something that is going to be much easier for us to build new features on, experiment with new features on, and it will get them out to our customers much quicker.” Mike Kruzeniski, the head of design and research at Twitter had described the redesign as the company’s worst kept secret. There was a time when they had tried to keep the news under wraps but now they value a slow rollout with extensive testing. This means that the users were aware of what was coming.

Kruzeniski added that he is thankful to the investment in the research and data science. The design and research head added that as a company they have become a lot smarter over years.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Should you upgrade to 5G? We compare the 4G and 5G variants of Mi Mix 3 running on Vodafone’s network to see whether it’s worth taking the plunge.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3?
The Mi Mix 3 5G is faster and has a higher-capacity battery than the standard Mi Mix 3, yet weighs only 8g more. And while Vodafone’s 5G network is patchy right now, by the time you’re even halfway through your 24-month contract we should be in a completely different situation in terms of coverage. But are you prepared to pay double dollar for the priviledge of future-proofed connectivity and slightly better performance on an already fast phone?
