Drake's latest streaming record: first artist to 50 billion streams

Image
All year Drake has been on a streak of smashing streaming records, including 1 billion album streams in a week , single-day records for Apple Music and Spotify (and then again ) and even had a hand in Ninja's record-setting Twitch session . Now his label Universal Music Group has announced Drake is the first artist to top 50 billion streams total across all streaming platforms. According to Billboard , Drake is nearing Taylor Swift's record for topping its Artist 100 chart. With a career that has risen along with digital music distribution, it's not a shock to see this Canadian's name topping every record, but we do wonder who will be next to hit the mark, and how far away 100 billion is. Of course, that could depend on whether or not Pusha-T keeps digging, and if Drake can maintain his occasionally dangerous reign over memes . πŸ™Œ @Drake just

Building a Kubernetes Blueprint for vRealize Automation – Intro

Image
In my efforts to learn more in the Cloud Native Apps space, I recently attended DockerCon 2018 and have been playing around with Docker a bit so I get the basics. Since VMware has Pivotal Container Services (PKS) for self-hosted enterprise ready Kubernetes and VMware Kubernetes Engine (VKE) as an upcoming SaaS offering, I figured it was time to start getting a feel for Kubernetes. Docker Training For the first two days of DockerCon, I opted for the Docker Fundamentals training as an add-on. I'm glad I did because the hands-on exercises provided some great experience and taught me several new things. It was nice to have a controlled introduction to Docker, Swarm, and Kubernetes. The VMs used for the training were pre-configured with all the necessary tools so no time was wasted there. So when it came time to set up my own "test" environment, I wasn't certain as to what

How to set up an IPSec VPN tunnel from an NSX Edge to VMware Cloud on AWS

Over the last year, we've been doing a lot of testing with VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) and it's pretty slick.

Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 670 is focused on AI

Image
While Qualcomm's recently announced Snapdragon 700 chip seemed like its answer for AI in lower cost phones, the company hasn't forgotten about its mid-tier series. The new Snapdragon 670 also centers on speedier AI performance when it comes to computer vision, as it's around 1.8-times faster than the previous generation Snapdragon 660. Notably, the Hexagon 685 DSP delivering all of that speed first appeared on the high-end Snapdragon 845 last December. It's also part of the technology powering the HDR+ algorithm on Google's Pixel 2 , so there's a good chanc e it'll lead to better looking photos on cheaper phones. The Snapdragon 670's Adreno 615 GPU is 25 percent faster than before, making it even better suited for games (which will also see a benefit from the faster AI performance). And the new Kryo 360 CPU is 15 percent faster than the

Astronomy Picture of the Day: Red Planet Red Moon and Mars

Image
Red Planet Red Moon and Mars Mars is also known as The Red Planet , often seen with a reddish tinge in dark night skies. Mars shines brightly at the upper left of this gorgeous morning twilight view from Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, but the Moon and planet Earth look redder still. Taken on July 27, the totally eclipsed Moon is setting. It looks reddened because the Earth's umbral shadow isn't completely dark. Instead Earth's shadow is suffused with a faint red light from all the planet's sunsets and sunrises seen from the perspective of an eclipsed Moon. The sunsets and sunrises are reddened because Earth's atmosphere scatters blue light more strongly than red, creating the faint bluish twilight sky. Of course, craggy seaside rocks also take on the reddened colors of this Australian sunrise. August 09, 2018 via NASA https://ift.tt/2Mf7iA0
