News:Unionized video game voice actors are considering a strike | Ars Technica

Unionized video game voice actors are considering a strike | Ars Technica "The truth is, back end bonuses are not uncommon in the video game industry," the union writes in an FAQ laying out its position on the negotiations. "Last year, Activision's COO took home a bonus of $3,970,862. EA paid their executive chairman a bonus of $1.5 million. We applaud their success, and we believe our talent and contributions are worth a bonus payment, too."

In the second prong of this attack, Apple is also delivering content from publishers — AppleInsider included — via iOS 9's News app.
Such is the war between gods, er, I mean 800lb Gorillas.

News:Why Hatsune Miku May Be the Future of Music -- Vulture

Why Hatsune Miku May Be the Future of Music -- Vulture: "Hatsune Miku, one of Japan’s most famous pop stars, has been 16 for the past seven years. She wears her cascading aquamarine hair in pigtails that skim the ground when she dances, and according to stats offered up on her record company’s website, she stands five-two and weighs about 93 pounds. She has opened for Lady Gaga, collaborated with Pharrell, and sung more than 100,000 songs, dabbling quite literally in every genre imaginable. If you’ve heard of her, you’ve probably heard her described as a ‘hologram’; maybe you’ve also heard people say she doesn’t exist."
Future of music or music from the future?

Apple Is Reportedly Working On Original TV Shows And Movies As It Plans Netflix-Style Service | Redmond Pie: "Tim Cook’s company apparently made an audacious bid to secure the services of the ex-BBC trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May before the financial might of Amazon stepped in to ensure that the ex-Top Gear hosts became part of its own original programming roster."
Perfect example of competition being good for the consumer.
