Should You Ditch Spotify? Apple Music’s New Features Explained

With Apple Music now out of the bag, Chris Johnston of The Guardian recently penned a piece detailing just the myriad of new listening options users can now dive into and enjoy. Without question, Apple Music is Apple’s most ambitious music project to date, and in turn, there’s a completely new UI to learn.

Somewhat strangely, Apple hasn’t really put out an easy to digest cheat sheet laying out how to navigate Apple Music. Thankfully, Johnston steps in and fills in some of these blanks.

Holocaust Hero Children Story

Holocaust Hero Who Saved 669 Children and Kept It a Secret for 50 Years Dies at 106

Holocaust Hero Who Saved 669 Children and Kept It a Secret for 50 Years Dies at 106

Sir Nicholas Winton has died at age 106. His death comes on the 76th anniversary of his departure from Prague on a train that carried many of the Jewish children whose lives he saved. That train in 1939 carried 241 out of the 669 total children who evaded the Nazi camps where their families were taken to die.

Most people haven’t heard about Winton before, simply because he was very good at keeping his inspiring actions a secret. It wasn’t until 50 years after the events took place that the public at large learned about his heroic acts — and it all happened by chance. More →

Listen to Zane Lowe’s Full Beats 1 Interview With Eminem Right Here

As if the idea of launching a 24/7 live radio station alongside Apple Music wasn’t a big enough deal for Apple, the company had to secure an interview with Eminem as well during the first week of Beats 1 being on the air. In a baffling twist, Stephen Colbert managed to get his own ridiculous Eminem interview online first, but Zane Lowe’s is still worth a listen.

Google’s Plan for Self-driving Cars May Have Finally Been Exposed… and It’s Ground-breaking

Google’s Plan for Self-driving Cars May Have Finally Been Exposed… and It’s Ground-breaking

Google’s self-driving cars look ridiculous by today’s standards. They’re tiny, the design is peculiar and the shape is odd. But those funny-looking cars are the future, and that future is going to arrive sooner than you might think.

While Google has been reasonably open during the development of its new autonomous car technology, the company’s specific plans for these cars remain a mystery. However, new claims from a venture capitalist may have just pulled back the curtain on Google’s plans, and they may be even more ground-breaking than we thought. More →

Will Apple Music Eat Through Your Data Cap?

To stream Apple Music over cellular data or not to stream Apple Music over cellular data… that is the question. iPhone users who are on unlimited data plans, or don’t really care about data overages, might not be interested in how much data Apple Music consumes on a 3G or 4G connection. But this will be an important detail for many prospective Apple Music subscribers, and it might help them choose between becoming a paying customer or sticking to streaming Beats 1 and other radio stations that are available free of charge.

The BGR Show: Episode 16 – Apple Music Is Our Generation’s Moon Landing

In this week’s episode of The BGR Show podcast, I’m joined by Zachary Epstein the Third. Apple Music is finally here — and we’re loving it.

Quick note: I thoroughly apologize for my microphone audio. When we were recording, it used my iMac microphone and not my Neumann, and I am embarrassed. This isn’t an accurate representation of the podcast experience for The BGR Show, and I hope you can one day forgive me for this egregious error. More →
