The New Yorker’s music critic just quit to work for Rap Genius

Sasha Frere-Jones, the veteran music critic who has worked for The New Yorker for the past decade, is leaving the magazine to serve as executive editor for Genius, the startup formerly known as Rap Genius.

The work of art in the age of gadgets

As CES 2015 wound to a close, our video team put together this incredible montage of over 250 gadgets in three minutes. We decided to narrate it with fragments from Walter Benjamin’s 1936 essay “The work of art in the age of mechanical reproduction,” because the highest understanding of CES requires seeing the cultural change happening behind the blinking lights and slick touchscreens. Also it sounded cool.

Verge video is Tre Shallowhorn, Jordan Oplinger, John Lagomarsino, Ryan Manning, Philip Robibero, Jimmy Shelton, Tom Connors, and Philip Robibero. Freelance work by Weston Reel and post production direction by Zenae Zukowski. Subscribe to The Verge on YouTube to see more of their incredible work.

We out, CES 2015. Until next year.
