Loneliness: The cost of the 'last taboo' - BBC News
There are an estimated 1.2 million people in the UK who have "chronic" loneliness, with links to poorer physical and mental health and increased use of GPs, hospitals and social services.
The campaign says it should be seen as a problem in public health terms, like obesity and smoking.
For a decade of an older person's life, the extra economic cost of loneliness is calculated as £6,000. [...] "Everyone's on their phones, they're closed off."

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The Atlantic
Psychologically, however, they are more vulnerable than Millennials were: Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades. Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones. [...] You might expect that teens spend so much time in these new spaces because it makes them happy, but most data suggest that it does not. [...] Teens who spend more time than average on screen activities are more likely to be unhappy, and those who spend more time than average on nonscreen activities are more likely to be happy. There’s not a single exception. All screen activities are linked to less happiness, and all nonscreen activities are linked to more happiness. // &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40840823 - Children consuming online time 'like junk food'

Why am I so lonely when I have 565 friends? - BBC Three
Eight in 10 under 34 year-olds identify as 'always or often' lonely.
On top of that, stats say Britain is the loneliest country in the EU. Loneliness is such a big issue that it was even included in the Conservative, Labour and UKIP snap election manifestos.
But, why? And why are Britain’s young people bearing the brunt of it?

Ray Kurzweil: The world isn't getting worse — our information is getting better - GeekWire
People think the world is getting worse. … That’s the perception. What’s actually happening is our information about what’s wrong in the world is getting better. A century ago, there would be a battle that wiped out the next village, you’d never even hear about it. Now there’s an incident halfway around the globe and we not only hear about it, we experience it.

Media Websites Battle Faltering Ad Revenue and Traffic
[lots more competition for people's attention] The trouble, the publishers say, is twofold. The web advertising business, always unpredictable, became more treacherous. And website traffic plateaued at many large sites, in some cases falling — a new and troubling experience after a decade of exuberant growth. Online publishers have faced numerous financial challenges in recent years, including automated advertising and ad-blocking tools. But now, there is a realization that something more profound has happened: The transition from an Internet of websites to an Internet of mobile apps and social platforms, and Facebook in particular, is no longer coming — it is here.

Angestellte bei Airbnb und Uber: "Diese Jobs schaffen ein neues Prekariat"
AirbnB und andere Firmen tun so, als hätten sie eine soziale Mission. Doch laut dem Buchautor Tom Slee beuten sie ihre Angestellten schlimmer aus als herkömmliche Firmen - und begünstigen totale Überwachung. // SPIEGEL: Es gibt Ökonomen, die sehen in diesen neuen Jobs auch eine Chance.

Slee: Diese Jobs schaffen ein neues Prekariat. Die dahinterstehenden Plattformen tarnen sich als Innovation, bauen aber auf unbegrenzte Verfügbarkeit und darauf, Arbeitsgesetze auszuhebeln und alles Risiko den Kleinunternehmern aufzuhalsen. [...] SPIEGEL: Uber und Co gerieren sich oft als Plattformen für freie Miniunternehmer. Sind sie das wirklich?

Slee: Die Leute sind scheinselbstständig, oft werden sie wie Angestellte behandelt. Tatsächlich haben sie etwa die Pflicht, 90 Prozent der angeforderten Fahrten anzunehmen, sonst werden sie gefeuert.

Why are YouTube stars so popular?
To non-fans, these tics can be irritating. The linguist Mark Liberman described them as an “intellectual used-car-salesman voice” akin to “high-energy sales pitches” or even a “carnival barker”.

But that’s another point about the popularity of YouTube’s stars: the way they divide fans from non-fans is a big part of their appeal too. [...] “Looking at survey comments and feedback, teens enjoy an intimate and authentic experience with YouTube celebrities, who aren’t subject to image strategies carefully orchestrated by PR pros. Teens also say they appreciate YouTube stars’ more candid sense of humour, lack of filter and risk-taking spirit, behaviours often curbed by Hollywood handlers.”

[...] Meanwhile, a fatigue is setting in among customers. There are now more than 1.5 million apps in the App Store (Android users have 1.6 million to choose from), but by 2014, the majority of Americans were downloading zero apps per month. And it turns out people simply don’t use most of the apps they do download. According to ComScore, the average person spends 80 percent of their time on mobile devices using only three apps.

Businesses call for faster UK broadband speeds - BBC News
'Mediocre' But the IoD believes the target should be higher and is calling for speeds of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) by 2030, 1,000 times faster than the current official aim of 10 megabits per second (Mbps) by 2020. "Now is the time to set a bold new target for genuinely world-beating broadband," said Dan Lewis, senior advisor on Infrastructure Policy at the IoD, and author of the report. "We have the leading internet economy in the G20, and yet download speeds are mediocre and the coverage of fibre optic cable is woeful." He added: "Unfortunately, the Government's current target displays a distinct poverty of ambition." [...] Openreach decision The IoD report comes just days after communications watchdog Ofcom said BT must open up its cable network and allow competition to improve UK internet connections. Ofcom also said there was a digital divide in the UK between those with the latest technologies, and those without. ...

Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Why doesn’t Whole Foods just take out Blue Apron, Plated et al?
But the biggest problem has to be churn. These services-- even if you love them-- burn you out. A small percentage of people have the time and desire to cook three nights a week over the course of a year. The recipes either don’t repeat favorites enough or offer too much duplication of sauteed chicken with slightly different ingredients placed around it. We spent months demoing them and boxes arriving soon started to elicit groans. It was a ticking time bomb crossed with the monotony of a to do list arriving on our doorstep.

Pando: Two slides that could predict a worse quarter for venture capital is coming
All of 2015’s totals lived and died on mega-deals. Mega-deals were the reason that the total amount invested in the year was one of the highest on record, even though the actual number of deals fell. It’s the reason the fourth quarter’s venture capital total fell so sharply when mega deals declined some 45%. //&!

Neunzigerjahre: Jahrzehnt der Angstfreiheit - SPIEGEL ONLINE
So lange nur nicht auffallen, sitzen und rauchen, die Neunzigerjahre waren das Jahrzehnt der Angstfreiheit. Die Menschen waren nicht besser oder schlechter als heute. Man konnte die schlechten, also alle, die nicht waren wie man selber, nur besser ignorieren, die Welt besser vermeiden, als noch nicht jede Sekunde neue Nachrichten verfügbar waren. Die Neunziger waren die letzte Zeit, in der man noch an etwas Gutes glauben konnte. Die Zeit der Naivität. Unendlich fade. Aber irgendwie rührend.

Are 'Instagram Husbands' really a thing? - BBC News
A tongue-in-cheek video is highlighting the plight of "Instagram husbands" - those poor partners who are stuck miserably photographing the exploits of their loved ones. Its creators say it's a joke about the shallow nature of social media - rather than a comment on gender politics. [...] Instagram skews heavily towards young people and women: according to one estimate, 68% of its users are female. Facebook and Pinterest also skew female, while Twitter and Tumblr are roughly balanced and Reddit and similar forums are predominately male, according to the Pew Research Center.

Spotify Shrinks Music Download Sales, Fights Piracy – Study | Re/code
Is Spotify shrinking the music business, by giving people a good reason not to buy music anymore? Or is Spotify helping the music business, by giving people a good reason not to steal music anymore? Yes! That’s the conclusion from a new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this month. [...] The nice thing about the study is that it manages to bolster both Spotify’s main argument to the music industry for the past few years — if you don’t let us distribute your music, and get some money for it, the pirates will do it and you’ll get none — and the music labels’ primary worry about streaming — there’s no way we’re going to sell enough subscriptions to replace albums and single-track sales!

Google Plans to Introduce Android Laptops, Replacing Chrome as OS | Re/code
Scale Google loves scale. It shutters products with user numbers that many companies would kill for (remember Reader?) because they don’t reach the billion-plus of its flagships. Chrome primarily lives on Chromebook devices. Gartner estimates Google will ship 7.9 million devices this year. Android, Google recently announced, crossed 1.4 billion users. Very different scale. Despite some traction, Chromebooks are still a tiny slice of the market, and Google has faced difficulty corralling developers to build apps for it. It hasn’t had the same problem with Android. [...] Google has manically reiterated that it does, in fact, have a cohesive plan for mobile. A chief Android distinction from Chrome is that it is built for mobile behavior. A vote for Android is, in some ways, a tacit admission that Google must devote its attention to the devices on which it lives.
