YouTube Gold: Mel Torme's I'm Coming Home – Duke Basketball Report

Mel Tormé, who was known as the Velvet Fog, was born to entertain. He started singing at the age of four and by the time he was 16, he was writing songs. Mostly though, he loved to sing and enjoyed wide-spread popularity. Ethel Waters said that “Tormé is the only white man who sings with the soul of a black man.” He also earned considerable respect for his talents as an arranger. In 1961, Tormé came out with “I’m Coming Home,” which was a massive hit. He made several appearances on the Judy Garland show, including this one where he sang his iconic hit. The presentation is kind of bizarre, frankly: several luxuriously dressed women are perched on motorcycles, barely moving as they sing in reply to what he has to say. And at the end, after a couple of attempts to start it, he drives one of the bikes off stage. Exit left! It’s a song and style that’s way out of step with today’s taste, but at the same time, his charisma is off the charts. Poor Judy Garland would only live a few short years after this, dying in 1969 after a lifetime of substance abuse, much

YouTube Music rolls out auto-downloads for podcasts – 9to5Google

Following the news that Google Podcasts is shutting down next year, YouTube Music now has the ability to auto-download podcasts. To enable, visit a show page and tap the new settings gear icon to “Save/d to library.” This slides up the “Turn on auto-downloads” button and will immediately download the most recent episode to your device for offline listening. As of today, episodes you’ve finished listening to aren’t automatically deleted. It’s possible that files are deleted after a new episode is available/downloaded or after a set time increment, like a full day, but we aren’t able to test that just yet.  There is no auto-removal setting at the moment, which is a staple of other clients. For example, Google Podcasts has a “Remove completed episodes” preference that lets you specify the increment: After 24 hours, 7 days, 30 days, and 90 days. That app also offers “Remove unfinished episodes” control. Auto-downloads work on a per-show (and per-device) basis so you have to enable individually. Google Podcasts offers a dedicated Auto Downloading page to quickly toggle on/off downloads. The rough equivalent in YouTube Music is going to the Library tab > Podcasts filter > Downloaded to manage using the individual overflow

YouTube Music with comments is Google's low-key social network – 9to5Google

“A social network for music” is how Steve Jobs described iTunes Ping in September 2010. I still think it’s a good idea that has the chance of being realized at scale by YouTube Music and its new ability to access comments directly on the Now Playing screen. 9to5Google has a rebooted newsletter that highlights the biggest Google stories with added commentary and other tidbits. Sign up to get it early in your inbox, or continue reading 9to5Google Log Out below: In redesigning that UI to elevate key actions several weeks ago, a single tap on Android and iOS now lets you slide up a comments panel that’s taken straight from the main YouTube app. Google has a complicated history with social networks, like Buzz (chasing Twitter) and, of course, Google+ (Facebook). The last attempt had problems but had a handful of good core ideas. One of those was the idea of Circles, or topic-based communities. I think if Google made a social network in the modern era it would center around that premise. I’m essentially thinking of the Reddit model rather than a massive and singular feed. While I think the opportunity for the company to pursue a social network

Jury divided over whether delivery driver who shot YouTube prankster acted in self defense

A Loudoun County Sheriff's car is seen. (Courtesy Twitter/Loudoun County Sheriff's Office) A jury on Thursday said it can’t agree on whether to convict a delivery driver who shot a YouTube prankster who was following him around a mall food court earlier this year.The jury sent a note to the judge after deliberating for about three hours in the trial of Alan Colie, 31, a DoorDash driver charged with aggravated malicious wounding and firearms counts in the shooting of Tanner Cook, 21, who runs the “Classified Goons” YouTube channel. The April 2 shooting at the food court in Dulles Town Center, about 45 minutes west of the nation’s capital, set off panic as shoppers fled what they feared to be a mass shooting. The jury’s note said it is “divided in terms of whether the defendant acted in self defense.” Loudoun County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Snow called the jury back into the courtroom around 3:30 p.m. and urged them to continue deliberations, a standard admonition given to juries that indicate they are deadlocked. If the jury remains deadlocked, it’s likely that the judge will be forced to declare a mistrial. Colie’s defense attorney, Adam Pouilliard, said during Thursday’s closing

YouTube Music tests 'Speed dial' redesign of 'Listen again' [U] – 9to5Google

The “Listen again” carousel is how I primarily interact with YouTube Music, and Google is testing a larger, more dense version. Update 9/27: After first appearing in June, YouTube Music is once more testing a redesign of Listen again. However, it’s now called “Speed dial,” which is pretty good branding given the 1-9 nature of this UI. Google has now moved the now playing indicator to the center of the artwork. One argument for this revamp could be that people don’t really scroll right to left and it’s better to show nine recent works over six. However, the truncated song names remain annoying. This Speed dial redesign is not yet widely rolled out. Chime in with your thoughts below: Current, June (Credit: u/astro-gazing), New u/ozxta Original 6/14: At the moment, Listen again is a 10×2 carousel that shows you six songs, albums, playlists, and artists per screen. A new design that at least one user is seeing adopts a 3×3 grid of cover art with more rounded corners. The name of the work is in the bottom-left corner/edge instead of appearing underneath. If you’re listening to a track, it will be highlighted in white with a now playing indicator in

Google Podcasts is Shutting Down And Moving to YouTube Music | Cord Cutters News

Google said it will shut down Google Podcasts and transition customers to YouTube Music by the end of 2023.  The move is part of a plan by Google to make YouTube the go-to app for all things streaming, including podcasts. Google said 23% of weekly podcast listeners in the U.S. name YouTube as the service they use the most, drastically outperforming Google Podcasts, which garners only 4% of weekly users surveyed. Google said it plans to “get this right” before fully shutting down its podcast service. This segue gives podcasters and audiences time to transition to YouTube Music. Users can use a simple migration tool to add podcast RSS feeds to their YouTube Music library, which includes shows not currently hosted by YouTube.  Members who do not want to move to YouTube can download their favorite shows to play on another compatible app of their choosing. Podcasters will have ample time to move all their content and RSS feeds to YouTube Music. “In the coming weeks and months, we’ll gather feedback to make the migration process from Google Podcasts to YouTube Music as simple and easy as possible,” Google said. “Once we feel the migration tools are ready, we’ll release
