Google Says Its Translate App Is Now a Lot Smarter When You’re Stuck Offline

Google Says Its Translate App Is Now a Lot Smarter When You’re Stuck Offline

Translation apps can be incredibly useful tools when you need quick guidance on translating a phrase or word from one language to another. But tools like Google Translate often fall short when you’re traveling and can’t get online.

On Tuesday, Google announced it’s upgrading its own translation app specifically for offline use by incorporating previously online-only neural machine translation...

The Rebirth of Vine Just Isn’t Going to Happen, Is It?

The Rebirth of Vine Just Isn’t Going to Happen, Is It?

Vine is dead, again. On Friday, Dan Hoffman, a co-founder of the defunct six-second video app, announced via Twitter that v2, his Vine sequel , is now indefinitely on hold. Hoffman said his vision of a small passion project was engulfed by too much attention, and that he would need a larger team and potential investors (?!) to see it through properly.

He tweeted a rather lengthy note going...

Teen Rapper Lil Pump Is 8 Million Dollars Richer (And He's Not Going Anywhere)

“Gucci Gang” rapper and infamous Instagram shit-starter Lil Pump just signed a hefty recording contract—featuring a cool $8 million advance—with major label Warned Bros., according to Billboard. The rapper backed out of a contract with Warner late last year, presumably because it was signed when he was a 16-year-old minor. There was, however, no reason made public as to why Pump and his team...

Google to Disrupt Record Labels With a New, Boring Record Label

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: “Record labels are obsolete.

One of the most persistent—and idiotic—narratives in a post-Napster music industry is that record labels are dinosaurs who refuse to die. This myth endures despite the fact that labels do more than print CDs and ask an artist if they wanna coordinate a press tour while recording an album. Thankfully, those old reptiles will...

Arcade Fire’s biggest fans at the moment may be empty chairs. The Globe and Mail reported that the Canadian rock band is currently struggling to fill the large arenas booked on their itinerary.

The report highlighted three shows in particular: Tampa, Florida, along with Austin and Dallas, Texas, where the band performed to around 5,000 people in venues that hold anywhere from 10,000 to 20,000...

Yesterday afternoon Drake shared a bit of sponsored content (spon con, if you will) for rapper Baka Not Nice, who has not only been convicted of assault, he’s gone to jail for it.

Drizzy posted a photo on Instagram teasing an upcoming merchandise line for Baka—who was once his bodyguard—and who he signed to his OVO Sound label earlier this year.

In 2014 Baka Not Nice, born Travis Savoury,...

Multiple-Grammy Award winner Kendrick Lamar has entered the world of real estate. According to TMZ, the DAMN. rapper recently purchased a huge home for a cool $2.65 million in the celebrity-and-rich-people haven of Calabasas, California, a city in Los Angeles County.

A$AP Rocky, née Rakim Mayers, is a fairly charismatic dude if you judge him solely on his stunning fashion editorials. By his interviews, less so. GQ Style, the quarterly edition of GQ Magazine that is not simply for high-end advertising dollars, interviewed the Harlem-raised rapper for their latest issue.

The interviewer, GQ Style editor-in-chief Will Weltch, didn’t ask the rapper questions...

Amazon: Please Only Listen to Music Bought From Amazon, on Amazon Devices

The future of music is going to be boring. Streaming may lift all boats when it comes to overall music industry revenue, but it also appears to constrict the basic idea of music ownership. On Wednesday, Billboard reported that Amazon Music is phasing out the option for users to upload their own .mp3s—basically, any music they didn’t purchase through Amazon—to its cloud storage platform....

Will Google Finally Enter the Music Streaming Wars?

In 2011, Google created Google Play Music, the company’s first attempt at a paid streaming music service. That’s four years before Apple Music was introduced and certainly predates Spotify’s position as a known music industry force. Perhaps they were too early: No one really cared. In 2014, Google shifted focus to YouTube Music Key, which offered ad-free music videos for a small fee, and,...

Last week, Jake Paul, the ridiculously popular YouTuber and worst person on Earth , released a remix of his obnoxious single “It’s Everyday Bro” with Gucci Mane. The odd collaboration was teased months ago on Paul’s YouTube channel, where Mane can be seen in studio saying, “Shout out to the all the Jake Paulers.” On Friday another YouTuber, Keemstar, tweeted that Paul allegedly paid Gucci...

In case you haven’t heard: Beyoncé is rich. Not normal person rich, but the richest woman in music-rich, according to Forbes, who recently put out a list of the richest women in music. The magazine, devoted to money and publicizing how much money the wealthiest in society earn, said that Beyoncé made $105 million last year. Her album Lemonade and jam-packed arena tours are responsible.

The obscenely wealthy are struggling with a case of thin skin this week. Taylor Swift threatened legal action against PopFront, a tiny website with only 236 Twitter followers at the time of writing, over a story titled: “Swiftly to the alt-right: Taylor subtly gets the lower case kkk in formation.” The headline is a bit ridiculous, sure, but now Swift’s duking it out with the ACLU. It appears...

At 12:01pm today, Thursday, October 19, Taylor Swift posted a short video to Instagram:

The clip features what sounds like a baby, or perhaps a person singing in a baby voice, saying the word “Gorgeous,” over a beat not dissimilar to the boot-up music of a ‘90s computer. Swift hasn’t had a child, so if a baby is on the track, who could it be? Perhaps a member of her ever-expanding squad lent...

Kendrick Lamar is pro-aliens. Yesterday, the Compton-raised rapper sat down with Howard Stern, as Pigeons and Planes reported, for a lengthy discussion on Black Live Matter, working with Taylor Swift, and his affinity for extraterrestrial encounters.

Lamar recounted to Stern that when he was only six-years-old he felt he crossed paths with a being not of this Earth: “Nobody believed me then...
