The Three. Le Trois. El Tres

Happy Wednesday (in case you’re losing track of time if you’re working from home)!

Here are the three articles that caught my eye today:

If you’re going to break the Internet…

You’re probably multitasking as I write this email newsletter (eg: watching Netflix, playing a video game online while working), you’re using a lot of data.

Home Internet data usage surges amid COVID-19 crisis

Spoons. All about spoons. 

ICMYI (to be honest with you, I’m more into the fitness fashion news than cooking. And since one of my goals in 2020 is to go beyond my comfort zone to learn new things, you might as well come with me for the journey):

The Best Measuring Spoons for Accurate Baking, Precise Spice Sprinkling, and More

I have no headlines for this

Two interesting articles for you to read in this section:

A) Oh, the things you can do with Minecraft (it’s a video game but you can also use it to broadcast your high school graduation).

B) a lot of people hate Apple. They think that Android does a better job (p.s. it doesn’t especially when it comes to updating the operating system. With Apple? It’s easy. Download and update. With Android? Not only does it depend on the company who made your phone but on your smartphone data provider (eg: Rogers in Canada) who decides when to release it).

Here’s a great article demonstrating the depreciation of iPhones versus their competitors.

Bonus round

1) The article is behind “The Wall Street Journal” paywall but the headline says it all: Project Digs Deeper Into Teenage Smartphone Use

2) TV marketing 101 fail

During the COVID-19 or any crisis, people watch their local TV news not only to see what’s going on in their city, but to get some reassurance from their news anchor(s) that everything is going to be okay.

This decision by the CBC News (it’s similar to the BBC News)? Tone deaf. Absolutely tone deaf (your local news teams are already practicing social distancing etc).

It’s the perfect way of driving away your tv audience into the hands of your competitors (and losing even more of its tiny market share):

CBC temporarily replaces local evening TV news amid coronavirus pandemic


You know what to do 🙂

Motivational end

You can do it.

Have a great Wednesday!

Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
