Apple’s new premium music service reportedly launching by this summer

According to Billboard, Apple’s upcoming streaming service – the next evolution of Beats Music – could see a “possible” launch sometime in the spring, but is “certain” to reach consumers by summer. 9to5Mac reported on the revamped Beats-based service last week, putting forward iOS 8.4 as the update that could potentially put the on-demand, premium service into the hands of millions of iPhone users without making them download a standalone app. Apple is expected to integrate Beats’ features, curated playlists, and social/sharing functionality directly into the Music app, though 9to5Mac also suggested that development of Apple’s new premium music service hasn’t been going so smoothly, with one source calling the situation “a mess.”

This is how App Store rankings are manipulated

In past years Apple has said it’s cracking down on the manipulation of App Store rankings through bot programs, but a recent image from Chinese social media site Weibo suggests the trade is alive and well using actual iPhones. The photo is captioned “hardworking App Store ranking manipulation employee,” and shows a young woman sat in front of a bank of around 50 iPhone 5cs, all hooked up with a nest of cables. There’s an identical bank of iPhones on her right and what looks like two more smartphone-laden desks facing away from her on the other side of the room.

On some sites, the photo is being paired with an alleged price list for the services (above), with Tech in Asia reporting that it will cost customers RMB 70,000 ($ 11,200) to…

Watch this supercut showing Quentin Tarantino’s stylish use of sound

Quentin Tarantino is well known for making visual homages to the film styles he loves the most, particularly spaghetti westerns, martial arts epics, and ’70s blaxploitation films. Part of that process means paying particular attention to sound design, capturing every swoosh and clang in just the right way. By now, Tarantino’s made an art of using sound and visual flourishes to accentuate his scenes. So, in “Hearing Tarantino“, Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney decided to create a supercut of some of the director’s most interesting use of sound in his films.

If you pay attention, you’ll notice it’s not just sound that’s important here. When the action is high, close-ups, zooms, and pans are the scenes that get the really gripping sound…
