    How do you watch youtube and other music videos?

    I'll reserve this area for clarifying the options, if needed. I am curious as to how people consume music videos, and the extent to which they do. I allow up to 2, uh 3, choices in the answer, recognizing that people may watch in different modes. Please use the second or third choice only for...

    Are the Maes actually better than Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish?

    If you have an ear for unadorned folk and acoustic music, then quite possibly, yes. Our panel scored 70 eligible videos (from 7000 reviewed) made in the last year, and, to their credit, some top recording artists, like Eilish and Swift, aren't afraid to step away from the auto-tune, dynamic...

    LG breaks Dolby Vision with new WebOS release 5.10.04 - June 2021
