Considering she’s sold more vinyl than anyone else in the past year, it’s only fitting that Taylor Swift was named the first-ever Global Ambassador for Record Store Day 2022, which encourages music fans to support their local independent music retailers.

Record Store Day 2022 will take place on Saturday, April 23 and will mark the 15th annual installment of the event, which features limited edition vinyl records that you can only buy at your local independent record store.

“I am very proud to be this year’s ambassador for Record Store Day. The places where we go to roam, explore and discover new and old music have always been sacred to me,” Taylor said in a statement.

“Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster the passion for music. They create settings for live events. They employ people who love music thoroughly and purely,” she continues. “These people and stores have had a tough few years and now more than ever we need to support these small businesses to make sure they can stay alive, stay quirky and stay individual.”

She adds: “It has been a real joy for me to see vinyl sales increase over the last few years and we artists have to thank the fans for this pleasant surprise. Happy Record Store Day everyone! Stay safe there.

According to MRC Data, three of Taylor’s albums made it to the list of the 10 best-selling vinyl albums of 2021. In 2020, Taylor provided signed copies of her albums to independent stores to encourage fans to visit, and also did donating money to help keep Nashville Grimey’s record store afloat.

The list of exclusive releases for this year’s Record Store Day will be announced soon.

What does 2022 hold for us? https://sonowebs.com/what-does-2022-hold-for-us/ Tue, 18 Jan 2022 04:56:37 +0000 https://sonowebs.com/what-does-2022-hold-for-us/ The year 2021 saw a drastic increase in programmatic ad spend as the industry continued to grow worldwide.

The year 2021 saw a drastic increase in programmatic ad spend as the industry continued to grow worldwide. According to one study, programmatic buying reached nearly $455 billion in ad spend in 2021 as more advertisers seek to achieve better results.

The future of programmatic advertising is exciting as the industry will continue to grow with estimated ad spend expected to accelerate to nearly $524.31 billion in 2022. As the world of programmatic advertising moves towards major changes, what does 2022 really hold in store for us?

1. Supply Path Optimization (SPO)

Although SPO has been around for a while, it has only recently gained popularity. The SPO will be a major axis in 2022 because it simplifies the supply chain between advertisers and the various publishers, who would otherwise have intermediaries.

SPO allows buyers to streamline their partners to access inventory. By giving media buyers the ability to bid and win inventory at the most reasonable price, SPO enables publishers to maximize their long-term revenue.

2. Demand Path Optimization (DPO)

Unlike the SPO, the DPO aims to recognize the buying factor of impressions instead of selling. The DPO, if combined well with the SPO, can actually help advertisers establish better terms and transparency with the brands/companies they can potentially buy ads from.

DPO offers the ultimate win-win situation for publishers by increasing revenue and reducing risk from ad tech vendors, becoming a trend to watch in the coming year.

3. Programmatic Audio

As the name suggests, this is the use of programmatic advertising technology that automates the sale and insertion of advertisements into audio content using a process very similar to display advertising. This is done through podcasts, digital radio and/or music streaming services.

Last year saw an increase in digital audio with a weekly increase in podcast listening of 17% since last year. Spotify has seen a 30% increase in ad-supported monthly active users since last year, reaffirming the belief that audio could be the new video.

The year 2022 will see a huge increase in programmatic audio due to growing interest from publishers and the availability of the right technology and standards to deliver it.

4. Rise of contextual advertising

Contextual advertising makes it possible to match the content of the web page with that of the ad. This focuses on creating a seamless user experience by focusing on screen content rather than individual users.

As data privacy laws become more stringent, contextual advertising is set to gain popularity as it solves all personal data issues. The coming year should see an increase in contextual advertising with more effective deployment, better metrics and insights.

5. A world without cookies

Google’s plans to stop supporting third-party cookies by the end of 2023 will end nearly two decades of data-driven, performance-targeted advertising.

The industry has taken the first step towards a cookie-free world, with brands and marketers now working on user-centric solutions that drive results while focusing on privacy regulations. This will cause substantial disruption in the industry, with a focus on content-based advertising instead of focusing on cookies.

It’s clear that 2022 could prove to be an exciting year for the industry, with change and disruption in every possible way. It could really define how the industry progresses.

What could really be the most defining trend for the future of programmatic advertising is the journey to a world without cookies. This journey will be driven by focusing on the data marketers already have and use that data to create opportunities and deliver personalized, relevant experiences to the right users.

Halo: Infinite’s multiplayer mode has had players on a roller coaster of emotions, as 343 Industries has managed to create one of the best Halo games in years, but also one of the most frustrating due to its chess. One of the biggest issues with Halo: Infinite – it’s the game’s storefront – will be fixed next week.

Halo: Infinite has been applauded for many things, from its gameplay to the level design and the balance it has managed to achieve in giving fans a throwback to the original Halo: Combat Evolved while evolving the franchise to his way. One of the biggest milestones was making multiplayer free. As part of this, there are now more Halo fans than ever before. However, to subsidize the free-to-play nature, 343i has set up an in-game storefront.

This showcase has been the subject of controversy due to its price, structure and value for money – or lack thereof. Addressing this issue, 343 Industries head of design, Jerry Hook, took to Twitter to announce that “We’ve been closely monitoring store discussions, bundles, and pricing since launch. Using community data and feedback, we’ll begin to make changes to how we package and price items. in @Halo Infinite – and it all starts next week.

He continued, “Starting Tuesday, the store experience will vary from week to week. We are focused on lowering prices across the board, providing stronger values ​​in our bundles, starting at put individual items outside of bundles, and more.

Hook concluded by saying “We will try new things throughout the season so that we can continue to learn and improve for the future. Please continue to give us your feedback during this process and I hope to see you all next week. for the Cyber ​​Showdown event!”

While it’s encouraging to see the developers listening to fan feedback and heeding their opinions, it does suggest that Halo: Infinite still wasn’t ready for launch despite having already been delayed by a month. year. Again, this is 343 Industries’ first foray into the free-to-play market, so it’s understandable that they don’t get it right the first time. As such, it’s good to hear that they’re at least listening to the fans.

KitGuru says: Are you still playing Halo: Infinite? What do you think of the pricing structure? What other changes would you like to see in Halo: Infinite? Let us know below.

Apple paid App Store developers around $ 60 billion in 2021 – TechCrunch https://sonowebs.com/apple-paid-app-store-developers-around-60-billion-in-2021-techcrunch/ Mon, 10 Jan 2022 21:58:23 +0000 https://sonowebs.com/apple-paid-app-store-developers-around-60-billion-in-2021-techcrunch/ Despite numerous antitrust lawsuits and tighter regulations in some markets, Apple today announced new figures indicating record App Store growth in 2021.

Despite numerous antitrust lawsuits and tighter regulations in some markets, Apple today announced new figures indicating record App Store growth in 2021. The company said in a press release that it paid more than $ 260 billion dollars to app developers since the launch of the App Store. in 2008, up from the $ 200 billion Apple announced at the end of 2020, meaning that in 2021 alone, Apple paid developers a total of at least $ 60 billion.

This number is much higher than the payments reported in previous years.

For comparison, by the end of 2019, Apple had paid developers a total of $ 155 billion since the App Store debuted. The year before, he had said that figure was around $ 120 billion. Reading between the lines, that means developer payments jumped $ 35 million from 2018 to 2019, and then increased another $ 45 billion from 2019 to 2020.

Unfortunately, the number of payments shared by Apple no longer helps to clarify the state of the overall App Store economy, as the percentages paid by individual apps vary.

In recent years, Apple has adjusted its commission structure to reduce its own reduction in developer revenue as part of increased regulatory oversight of its App Store business practices, antitrust complaints, and lawsuits, including current case with Epic Games, currently on appeal.

With the launch of Apple’s Small Business program announced in November 2020, the company reduced its commission from 30% to 15% on qualifying apps (those that make up to $ 1 million per year). In 2021, Apple also dropped app commissions from selected news publishers if they chose to participate in its Apple News partner program. Apple hasn’t said how many developers and publishers have actually taken advantage of these opportunities, only that a “vast majority” of apps would be eligible for the small business rebate.

In announcing yet another App Store record, Apple appears to be distinguishing between its usual self-promotion and not drawing too much attention to its outsized earnings. The company noted that App Store customers spent “more than ever” between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve in 2021, resulting in double-digit growth from last year.

However, Apple did not come up with specific numbers to document this milestone as it did last year, when it then noted that consumers had spent $ 1.8 billion on digital goods and services over the course of of the week between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve 2020, largely thanks to spending. on games.

Today’s numbers follow what has otherwise been a year of transition for the App Store.

The company has seen more reluctance from developers over the App Store scams, which have become a topic for a congressional hearing, as well as continued difficulties with the app review process. This year, Apple was also ordered to make changes to the App Store that would have allowed links to third-party payment options in the wake of the Epic lawsuit ruling, but was subsequently granted a last-minute stay. of the court order while the case is under appeal. However, Apple has had to loosen its grip on the App Store in other markets, such as Japan and South Korea, where regulators have pushed Apple to allow links to external websites and have taken other steps. to reduce its commissions.

In addition to its figures on the App Store, Apple also offered updates on its other service activities, including Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness +, Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple News +, Apple Podcasts, Apple Books, Apple Pay and Wallet, Apple Maps and iCloud +.

It is worth mentioning that Arcade now offers more than 200 games, Apple Music now has more than 90 million songs in lossless audio, Apple TV + has won 190 industry awards, Apple Fitness + has grown to include nearly 2,000 sessions of workout content, Apple News remains number one. 1 news app wherever it’s available, Apple Pay has reached nearly 60 countries and regions, and customers used 30 million NFC tickets in Apple Wallet in 2021.

A new book on store shelves has an important message for kids. “Roscoe to the Rescue” explains some of the ways dogs can save people and how dogs and people can save each other.

The book is a decade-long labor of love by author Stacy Morse of Columbia.

“It was really exciting to finally hold it in my hands,” said Morse. “Like so many other people, when I come home with my dogs, it’s the best part of my day.”

She explains how the book came to be.

“It was my brother’s dog and yes his name was Roscoe after Rosco P. Coltrane in ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’. He’s a little black lab pooch that was found by the side of the road and brought to his job. My brother took him home. Then I ended up having a really bad day. I went to my brother’s house and said, ‘I’m taking Roscoe.’ He said, ‘Okay,’ so I took a nap at Roscoe for about a year, ”she says.

Morse is a former elementary school teacher. So she knows a thing or two about how important it is for children to learn to read.

“This book is great for babies, toddlers, elementary school kids because really, you want to start reading to kids as soon as you can. If you think about the number of words children hear in a house where there are no books compared to a child who is read for even a few minutes every night. This is why children come to preschool with such different skill levels. So this is a great book that very young children can enjoy, as well as throughout elementary school. What is really special about this book are the beautiful illustrations by my illustrator in Macedonia. When I was directing her to what I wanted in the illustrations, and even when I was writing the words, it was really important to make sure that every name, every action was shown in the pictures because those picture hints help strengthen reading skills for children, says Morse.

Morse says the book represents everyone and teaches children how to be good citizens.

“It’s multicultural,” she says. It was really important to me that the characters didn’t look alike throughout the book. You don’t just get a book about dogs, you get a beautifully illustrated story about how we can save each other and how dogs can save us. I think there are a lot of great books out there, but this book is one that kids will want to read over and over again and hopefully continue the lessons they learn in the book in real life.

The book has several corresponding teaching aids.

“Having the audio version means parents can buy the e-book or the paperback and then have the audio version that reads the story to the kids. So that reinforces the words and the enrichment guide. He has coloring pages. It contains word search, parts of speech, exercises, and discussion questions in activities that accompany a book.

“Roscoe to the Rescue” was written, published and printed in State Show-Me.

It is available from Downtown Book & Toy in Jefferson City. It is also available, with other corresponding materials, at roscoetotherescue.com

Each year, the App Store Awards spotlight some of the best apps and games for Apple platforms and devices. Think of them as the Oscars of the App Store world: an honor bestowed by the industry itself. You have to be damn good to win a prize – and sometimes it takes years of app to get there (consider the best iPhone app of 2021, Toca Life: World, which has slowly iterated and improved since launch. in 2018).

As another year ends, it’s worth taking the time to review some of the best apps for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac that you can download right now. Not all of them need to be published This Year: Many apps have received significant updates over the past 12 months, which has taken them to a whole new level.

If you’re looking forward to vacation downtime, ditch Instagram and be sure to download some of the apps and games on this list instead. It will be time well spent.

Toca’s Life World

Let’s start with Apple’s iPhone app of the year, Toca Life World. If you’ve never heard of this app then don’t worry it’s not just you but if you have kids you can probably tell them about it.

This is a world building app for kids. You can create your own character, go to different places and take on the role of different scenarios. It’s an app that helps kids learn to express themselves in a safer environment than something like Roblox. The game is free to play, although there are of course plenty of options for expansion packs in the form of in-app purchases.

It’s probably not an app that you’d download yourself (although it’s just as addicting for adults who could be entertained by, say, setting up a virtual house). But if you are visiting your family while on vacation, this is a great way to keep the kids busy so the adults can actually relax.

Procreate

While Apple didn’t name the Procreate iPad App of the Year, we still think it’s probably the best iPad app out there. It’s a digital drawing app, and this year their animation assist feature has made some major improvements. In fact, Procreate is an app that keeps giving: every two months it comes with a feature that levels up the entire creativity space of the iPad.

Procreate deserves special recognition this year for the way it implemented Animation Assist. You can draw subjects, create their paths, define perimeters, and press play to see your drawing come to life. Magic.

LumaFusion

While Procreate is in the drawing, LumaFusion is in the video editing. It’s a multitrack video editor that really shines on an iPad Pro with an M1 chip. It is an easy to use application that allows you to edit six video tracks and six audio tracks at the same time.

Think of it as Final Cut Pro X for iPad (something Apple still refuses to do). While you don’t get all of the same features or the plugin library, you can get pretty close with LumaFusion. This is especially great for content creators who are just starting out and want to edit videos on the go.

Carrot weather

After a few years apps tend to hit a kind of plateau, and that was the story of Carrot Weather: It was a sneaky and gorgeous weather app that had its followers, but it didn’t add much new.

But from 2021, Carrot Weather has really shaken things up. He made the app free and switched to a subscription model that offered stable income and a whole new modular approach to the app.

Carrot Weather users can now basically design their own weather app, creating different themes with the settings you want to display and the way you want them displayed.

Moreover, the Apple Watch app, with its many complications, is also very good (which is why it won the Watch App of the Year 2021 award). And the same sense of humor remains, although it’s probably best to make sure your phone is on silent before opening it in polite company, lest it start cursing you about. weather.

Arts and crafts

Years ago, Evernote was all the rage among note-taking apps. Now, Notion seems to have picked up on those honors, and for good reason, but the problem with Notion is that it doesn’t feel right at home on any Apple platform, especially the Mac.

Enter the craft industry. If you want a thoughtfully designed native experience for collaborative document editing and note taking on an Apple platform, this is it. It’s a relatively new entrant to space, but it’s already making big waves. The app is visually simple, beautiful, and it runs fairly quickly (including Google Docs-style collaborative editing).

Myst

Myst is back, baby. This adventure video game was first released in 1993. Almost 30 years later, it was named Mac Game of the Year 2021 from the App Store. Myst ‘The longevity of s is quite remarkable – it’s one of those games that gets updated and remastered for every new platform.

And now a nice new version is available for the latest Macs. The first-person adventure game is as it always has been: an immersive way to explore a virtual world, to go on adventures and, of course, to solve puzzles.

Cloth

If there’s one app that has really exploded over the past year or so, it’s Canva. The free graphic design website has taken over all iPhones and iPads as the app has improved even further, providing more functionality and flexibility.

Want to create a quick poster? Use a Canva template. How about an Instagram story? Or a LinkedIn post? Canva will do the trick. It’s no exaggeration to say that this is an essential tool for anyone trying to build a brand identity online without investing in a graphic design degree.

buzz

Dating apps come and go. Either they become a cultural punching bag like Tinder, or they stay in their own niche. But Bumble (with Hinge) has managed to stay relevant even in 2021. Nothing has changed much in 2021. But given Bumble’s commitment to privacy, this is one of your best bets for romance. assisted by application.

Peanut

Peanut is like Tinder, but for motherhood. It’s a safe community designed only to navigate the experience of having a baby and get through those difficult first years. It helps you connect with other parents who are going through the same path, so that you can share your struggles and find support.

You can find groups, connect with someone one-on-one, or you can join Clubhouse-style live audio rooms.

MARVEL Future revolution

Marvel’s Future Revolution is an MCU fan’s dream. It’s an open-world role-playing game that touches all of the highlights, from Battle for New York, The Avengers, to a new update inspired by the eternal.

This is a role-playing game, but the adventures it sends you are customizable. You can create, modify and improve your characters. You can choose their powers, and even design their costumes (there are over 400 million possible combinations, per hero). It is the best way to enter your favorite comic book universe while looking at your phone.
