What's Up With That Story About Secret Face-Scanning Tech at a Taylor Swift Show?

What's Up With That Story About Secret Face-Scanning Tech at a Taylor Swift Show?

At a Taylor Swift concert earlier this year, fans were reportedly treated to something they might not expect: a kiosk displaying clips of the pop star that served as a covert surveillance system. It’s a tale of creeping 21st-century surveillance as unnerving as it is predictable. But the whole ordeal has left us wondering what the hell is going on.

As Rolling Stone first reported, the kiosk...

How did civilization exist before we had this? A group of 49 animation students were each given 52 frames of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” music video, to rotoscope anyway they wanted. The results are surreal and astonishing. Can’t stop, won’t stop, watching this madness.

Following last weekend’s Apple Music/Taylor Swift tango , the most influential independent labels have signed on to Apple Music. Also, a Pharrell track will be the first Apple Music exclusive. That makes me happy.

The Mystery of That Taylor Swift Face Recognition Kiosk Has Been Solved

The Mystery of That Taylor Swift Face Recognition Kiosk Has Been Solved

In December of last year, Rolling Stone reported that at a Taylor Swift concert at the 2018 Rose Bowl, there was a mysterious kiosk playing clips of the singer that doubled as a facial recognition system to flag any of Swift’s stalkers. A number of reports covered the alleged kiosk—including Gizmodo —but little was known at the time about the surveillance system. But now we have answers to...

Tal y como explica en un artículo Rolling Stone, cuando Taylor Swift dio un concierto en el Rose Bowl el pasado mes de mayo, el equipo de la cantante implementó un nuevo e innovador sistema durante el directo: tecnología para hacer un seguimiento de los posibles acosadores.

Según el medio, durante la actuación se instaló una tienda pequeña desde donde se estaban reproduciendo los clips del...

¿Doble rasero de Taylor Swift? criticar a Apple y explotar a fotógrafos

¿Doble rasero de Taylor Swift? criticar a Apple y explotar a fotógrafos

Una estrella mundial como Taylor Swift haciendo rectificar a todo un gigante como Apple para defender los derechos de los artistas. Una historia perfecta, ¿no? Lo sería si no fuera porque ya hay quien está criticando a Swift por hacer justo lo que ella echa en cara a Apple: explotar a otros. En este caso, a los fotógrafos freelance que acuden a sus conciertos.

Apple da marcha atrás: pagará a...

Confirman una descabellada teoría de Internet sobre Taylor Swift: se esconde en una maleta para evitar a los paparazzis

Taylor Swift detesta que los paparazzi la atosiguen con sus cámaras y sus preguntas cuando intenta desplazarse de un lugar a otro. Hace poco mas de un año nació una teoría de que la cantante hace cosas bastante descabelladas para escapar de los paparazzi, como esconderse en una maleta, y esta teoría resultó ser cierta.

Mira atentamente esta foto y verás que no eres el único paranoico que...

I'm Pretty Sure This New Cats Movie Is Just a Summary of 2018

I'm Pretty Sure This New Cats Movie Is Just a Summary of 2018

The last few weeks have seen a flurry of casting news for a new movie based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s T.S. Eliot-inspired musical about actual cats hanging out. It is both the most 2018 news to appear on the horizon and also the most 1981 news. Personally, I’m still trying to understand it!

Idris Elba is going to play a cat. As noted by Variety, he has twice been cast as a cat in films. He has...

.Sucks Seller Accused of Ripping Off Poor Helpless Celebrities

.Sucks Seller Accused of Ripping Off Poor Helpless Celebrities

The company selling off .SUCKS domains is making celebrities and brands pay premium prices to snatch up their .SUCKS addresses before their enemies do first. This is pissing off ICANN, the group tasked with regulating domains, which sees the scheme as a coercive shakedown.

Vox Populi, the company selling off the new .SUCKS domains, is taking full advantage of how freaked out celebrities and...

Meet the Truthers Who Think There's a Taylor Swift/Apple Conspiracy

Taylor Swift's New Video Is A Better Fairytale Movie Than <i>Maleficent</i> and<i> Mirror Mirror</i> Put Together

Seriously, Hollywood keeps making weird-ass fairytale movies. And they really ought to take a note from this insane new Taylor Swift video for “Out of the Woods,” which does for fairytales what her “Bad Blood” vid did for action movies.

I can’t wait to see all of the GIFs that people make from this video. What happens here? Basically, Taylor is in the woods, and she has a magic...

El día que Taylor Swift quiso cantar gratis donde Internet eligiera e Internet eligió un colegio para sordos 

A menudo nos olvidamos de muchos de los pasajes más surrealistas que han ocurrido en los últimos años en Internet. Todo va tan rápido que la broma de hace una semana ya no la recordamos. Estos días marcan uno de esos grandes momentos. Se cumplen cinco años de una votación épica.

Aquellas fechas fueron parte de la época dorada que vivió una comunidad que hoy todos conocemos de sobra. También,...

1989 Won't Be On Apple Music, And That's Bad News For Apple

<i>1989 </i>Won't Be On Apple Music, And That's Bad News For Apple

Joke about TaySway and her army of loyal Tumblr tweens all you want (go on, I dare you), but Swift is an undeniable powerhouse in pop music. Eight months after the launch of 1989, it’s still the fourth-best selling album in the country. And that makes it doubly bad for Apple that she’s just stuck up two middle fingers in the general direction of its new streaming service.

According to...

Taylor Swift Says She Borrowed Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool Costume for Halloween

Taylor Swift Says She Borrowed Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool Costume for Halloween

I’m having trouble believing that Ryan Reynolds let the Deadpool suit out of his sight for longer than a minute. But maybe the Halloween spirit moved him. Or maybe Swift was just joking.

Swift, like so many people this past Halloween, chose to be the Merc with a Mouth. Only, being Taylor Swift, she may have had some really special help with this:

In case that’s not showing up for you for some...
