This Is Why It's So Impossible to Quit Comcast

If you’ve been anywhere even remotely near the internet over the past couple of days, you’re probably familiar with Ryan Block’s now-legendary attempt to quit Comcast . And while it’s hilarious and awful and mind-numbing all the same time, there’s far more to the story.

As previously rumored, Spotify has today officially launched a new, free mobile listening option for its subscribers, as well as confirming an earlier report that rock legends Led Zepplin would be joining its library. At a press event in New York, Spotify has detailed the new mobile service that comes with a couple of conditions; namely ads and shuffling.

Naturally a free music streaming offering like this will offer in-stream advertisements, not unlike the free desktop offering or iTunes Radio’s free tier. Also, free subscribers will be able to listen to whichever artists they desire so long as they’re happy that they’re shuffling through the artists catalog. Thankfully you’ll be able to skip tracks you don’t like, and add things you’re more fond of to playlists.

The other big news is of course the arrival of Led Zeppelin. Famously missing from online music streaming services, Zeppelin only entered the iTunes Store back in 2007, and so todays news is massive for fans, and for Spotify customers. 2 albums from the catalog will be launched per day this week, starting today with Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II.

Things don’t end there though, as Spotify has also announced 20 new markets for its services launching today across Europe, South and Central America.

Things continue to heat up in the streaming music space, and Spotify has once again shown its hand as being one of the biggest dogs in the yard. How does any of this fit for you? Will it convince you to sign up, or switch from your current service of choice?

Her new album Britney Jean is climbing up the charts and now Britney Spears soaks up the spotlight on the cover of InStyle magazine’s January 2014 issue.

While donning designer duds from Helmut Lang and Jason Wu for the Michelangelo Di Battista-shot spread, the 32-year-old singer opens up about her body image and reveals details about her Las Vegas residency.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Spears’ Q&A session below. For more, be sure to visit InStyle!

On her body:
“I think it’s important to look good and feel good about yourself, but I go both ways on it. I think it’s cruel how the world puts so much emphasis on our looks. I was just watching ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ and I see Kim and what she went through when she was pregnant – the tabloids were so mean to her because she was big. At one point in the show she was upset and said something like, ‘I would be lying if I said that the criticism from the paparazzi while I’ve been pregnant hasn’t taken a toll on me,’ And I was like, ‘Bless her heart,’ Because I remember that time. First of all you are already emotional, and then the paparazzi are taking pictures of you pregnant. That should be the time [in your life] when your body is the most treasured, I love being pregnant for so many reasons, not to mention the sex is awesome then. But in this business you make a deal with the devil. I’ve learned you kind of have to go with it. What I do calls for me to look good. People expect that.I kind of take it as my job.”

On her life as a mom:
“As a mom, you have all these situations you go through and you’re like, ‘What is going on? Is this normal? Is this a phase? Or what is this?’ and then you feel silly for asking questions because you know, I’m a mom. I’m supposed to know these things, but you don’t. You’re human. To be honest, I wish I had more mom friends.”

On her Las Vegas rehearsals:
“The physical demands are tremendous, I’m rehearsing at least three or fours a day, sometimes even five. My body yesterday- I just felt so bad, I had to get two massages in one day! When I was younger, I wasn’t as likely to rehearse as hard as I do now. I’m harder on myself these days. Before, I would practice two times, and I’m done. Nowadays I’m very critical of myself.”

On her Hollywood tip:
“My advice for the next generation of stars? Don’t care too much about what other people think. What matters is your own point of view.”

Ever wondered what Christmas looks like at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s house? Happy, expensive chaos, we’d wager. We’d also imagine that Brad and Angie themselves are impossible to shop for. Maybe that’s why so many people believed the report that Jolie bought Pitt a heart-shaped island.

ZTE Nubia 5 and Grand S to be sold unlocked in US beginning October 16th

Though smartwatches may or may not be selling well, such market conditions aren’t stopping newcomers like Qualcomm and others from entering the game. Now, China’s ZTE has told the WSJ that it’ll launch its own model in the second quarter of 2014 with features similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, but at a lower price. Before you get too excited, the yet-unnamed device will just launch in China at first, and it’ll only be compatible with the company’s own smartphones — like the Nubia Z5 shown above. However, ZTE said it may roll out in Europe and the US later and might also launch future smartwatches that work with any Android device. Though the market for wrist-borne wearables in China is tiny compared to the smartphone segment, ZTE’s mobile marketing chief Lu Qianhao said that launching such a product may give his company’s smartphones a competitive advantage. That may be an unusual marketing ploy, but it could get stranger — the company’s also considering smart glasses and yes, smart shoes.

Study suggests that environmental manipulation should be considered as part of overall management of dry eye syndrome

NEW ORLEANS Nov. 16, 2013 Residents of major cities with high levels of air pollution have an increased risk of dry eye syndrome, according to a study presented at the world’s largest ophthalmic conference, the 117th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, in New Orleans. Study subjects in and around Chicago and New York City were found to be three to four times more likely to be diagnosed with dry eye syndrome compared to less urban areas with relatively little air pollution. As a result of this study, researchers suggest that environmental manipulations should be considered as part of the overall control and management of patients with dry eye syndrome.

Dry eye syndrome, a deficiency in tear production, is a prevalent condition that effects up to four million people age 50 and older in the United States and whose manifestations negatively affect physical and mental functioning. The symptoms of dry eye syndrome can be very detrimental to patients and severely affect the quality of one’s life, as well as result in loss of productivity due to interruption of daily activities like reading and using computer screens. While it has been suggested that environmental factors impact dry eye syndrome, this is the first study of a large patient population covering the entire continental United States which linked dry eye syndrome treatment location to atmospheric conditions in particular, air pollution coupled with weather conditions.

Using data from the National Veterans Administrative (VA) database, the National Climatic Data Center and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the researchers examined the health records of 606,708 U.S. veterans who received dry eye syndrome treatment in one of 394 VA eye clinics within the continental U.S. from July 2006 through July 2011. Those living in areas with high levels of air pollution had the highest magnitude of increased risk for dry eye syndrome, at an incidence rate ratio of 1.4. Most metropolitan areas, including New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami showed relatively high prevalence of dry eye syndrome (17-21%) and high levels of air pollution.

Additionally, the risk of dry eye syndrome was 13 percent higher in zip codes in high altitude areas. Higher humidity and wind speed were inversely associated with the risk of dry eye syndrome when controlled for air pollution and other weather conditions. The research findings suggest that primary care physicians and eye care professionals should be aware of the association between environmental conditions and dry eye, and elicit an environmental history when assessing patients with dry eye syndrome.

“Undoubtedly, many people living in arid and polluted cities would readily attest to the irritating effect air pollution has on dry eye,” said Anat Galor, M.D., MPSH, of Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Assistant Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, and lead researcher. “Our research suggests that simple actions, such as maintaining the appropriate humidity indoors and using a high-quality air filter, should be considered as part of the overall management of patients suffering from dry eye syndrome.”

Dry eye symptoms can range from stinging or burning to excessive tearing and discomfort wearing contact lenses. As the eye responds to the irritation of this condition, the eye will often tear excessively to try to combat the loss of moisture. Many people with dry eye syndrome may find watching television, reading and working for extended periods on a computer to be very uncomfortable. For relief from dry eye syndrome, the American Academy of Ophthalmology advises people to visit an ophthalmologist to determine the best course of treatment.
