‘The Walking Dead’ Most Torrented TV-Show of 2018 - TorrentFreak
Interesting breakdown. CW absolutely kills it with 4. I am guessing part of the most downloaded has to do with how available the shows are? CW shows are hard to come by even in North America.

1 (2) The Walking Dead
2 (3) The Flash
3 (4) The Big Bang Theory
4 (8) Vikings
5 (…) Titans
6 (10) Arrow
7 (…) Supernatural
8 (…) Westworld
9 (…) DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

‘Big Bang Theory’ Stars Sign New Deals Worth $1 Million Per Episode | Deadline
Season 7 is 2013-2014. Season 7-9, it was $750K for the 2 lower guys and $1M for the 3 core. The two lower guys got to parity with $1M in season 10. They all took paycuts down to $900K (5 of them). The two late comer females made $60K in season 7 and $100K in season 9 or 10. They are trying to get close to $500K/episode for season 11/12. Season 12 is the last season, ending in spring 2019.

The core trio were making $350K/episode in season 6.

The other two guys got $100K/episode in 2010 negotations, after season 3 aired, but before season 4.

The other article for the 2014 (season 8+ negotations) stated for back-end stuff: "I hear Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco also quadrupled their previous ownership on the show, which has gone up from 0.25 to more than a point. I hear Parsons’ pact includes a production deal that spans TV and features and possibly theater, with Galecki and Cuoco also getting producing arrangements." -- What does 1 point mean? Not sure if it literally means they own 1% of everything related to the show.

Strange Culture: The Social Network's Parable of Roy Raymond
"If there is a moment that the film The Social Network seems to really achieve something, it is the scene where Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) shares the story of Roy Raymond with Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg).

They're at a loud club and Parker's date, a Victoria's Secret model leaves for a moment providing an ideal opportunity for Parker to share the story of Roy Raymond, the founder of Victoria's Secret.
Raymond was a graduate of Tuft's University and the Stanford School of Business. Raymond is said to have opened Victoria's Secret after experiencing embarrassment associated with trying to buy his wife lingerie in a public store environment. The company started out as a catalogue, and after 5 years, in 1982, he was able to sell the company to The Limited. A decade later, in 1993 at the age of 47 he committed suicide jumping off the Golden Gate bridge.

I love this scene because it really helps to carry the theme of this film between the connection between Zuckerberg's personal desires mixed with his business success that came as a side-effect of something much more personal.

I think this "parable" in the film serves to suggest that worldly success achieved at handling a different personal deficiency and fear does not assuage the personal issue at the core.

I thought this scene was really the heartbeat of the film, and the scene after watching the film I think of most often. David Fincher's inclusion of this moment and Aaron Sorkin's writing of this scene really demonstrates some true artistry and message."

Pocket Casts
pricey is debatable since it really isn't. Just each platforms app costs something. Mainly the web app being $9 (just one time) really isn't a big deal at all, but podcasts half the time, you don't want an internet connection, no?

Overall, I mainly want features that don't seem to matter since they are almost never included or mentioned much. For podcast episodes: Being able to bookmark/make notes (text, audio, whatever) and info, links, resources, etc. Audible and Instacast (which is dead now) have it the closest.

--

More common:
Different variable speeds (especially below 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x) and diff rewind/fast forward increments as well are biggies. Though these are usually included and touted. Just perhaps not as deep as all the variants I listed.

Instagram’s Buyout: No Bubble to See Here
"To put the acquisition in perspective I pulled together data from a selection of 30 notable internet acquisitions over the last 10 years, from Broadcast.com to OMGPop to see if Facebook/Instagram for $1 billion was as crazy as everyone thinks. (I left out companies without public purchase prices or user stats.)"

He even uses companies like Zappos and Skype...you know...companies with actual revenue models and/or profitability. LOL.

People Overreacting To Facebook Buying Instagram
As the subtitle says, "C'mon, we all know you're not really going to delete it.". Or at least almost all these people will move on to another ethically identical product or come back to Instagram in the future. Finally, these people are posting this on Twitter...LOL. And how many have a Facebook account they use more than once a month? of these people

Facebook and Instagram: When Your Favorite App Sells Out -- Daily Intel
Article says "When people write critically about Facebook, they often say that “you are the product being sold,” but I think that by now we all get that...Thus it is a critical choice of any adult as to where they will perform their free labor. Tens of millions of people made a decision to spend their time with the simple, mobile photo-sharing application that was not Facebook because they liked its subtle interface and little filters. And so Facebook bought the thing that is hardest to fake. It bought sincerity."

This is complete BS. As commenter, TEDPAVLIC, states, "wasn't the original (sincere?) point of Instagram was to be bought by a company like FB? They weren't making any money. They were just developing good mobile software (whose web presence depended on _other_ websites) that could be easily plugged into a larger beast. Seems to me like they were begging to be bought. I'm guessing there was a decent return on that investment. So is Instagram that "sincere?" Wasn't Instagram meant for exactly this?"

Reddit's World News Subreddit Comments - "So what did the troll actually say?" Why exactly is Liam Stacey in jail?
The reddit discussion thread with over 1000 comments relating to The Guardian's decent, but still pandering or conservative article about Liam Stacey. Ridiculous that this guy is going to jail in a first world country like the UK.

So what did the troll actually say? | Victoria Coren | Comment is free | The Observer
Liam Stacey wrote vile things. But do you know why he went to jail?

"All the TV and newspaper reporters, columnists and opiners quoted his first tweet ("LOL f*** Muamba. He's dead. #Haha" – Stacey didn't use asterisks) and referred vaguely to "racist tweets" after that.
But what were they? Did the reporters know but choose delicately not to repeat them? Or did they not know? Do the columnists who applaud the sentence know? Or have they – as I suspect – just seen the bowdlerised media, like the rest of us, and are satisfied with the hazy summary?
What terrifies me is that people are nodding happily all over the country, pleased to see a clampdown on internet trolling at last...Anyone who's pleased to see a person jailed for a piece of writing, without bothering to seek out the precise words that were deemed illegal, should be ashamed of themselves."
