YouTube is experiencing a major outage. Users across the world started to notice that the video service’s sites and mobile apps were down around 9:20pm ET, and everything remains inaccessible more than an hour later. YouTube TV and Youtube Music are also affected by the service disruption.

As with all Google-operated services, serious downtime for YouTube is pretty rare. YouTube TV did suffer service interruption at an inopportune time during this summer’s World Cup, however, and channel pages went down for a while in April. Perhaps most infamously, Pakistan’s government accidentally caused an hours-long global YouTube blackout a decade ago by attempting to censor a trailer for an anti-Islamic film.

It was only temporary, but it did cause people to freak out. Although when it id happen no warning was issued.

But hey, at least it gave people sometime to take a break.... or at least I thought when there is other forms of media present and video games left and right. There should be a day when everything shuts down for a good hour.

      Turns out, YouTube is used for more than just watching Zion Williamson mixtapes.
      A new study from Pew digs into the habits and motivations of YouTube users, with fascinating conclusions. Here are some takeaways...
      DIY: 51% of U.S. adults who use YouTube say the videos are "very important" for figuring out how to do things they've never done before (like pouring beer the right way).
      The recommendation algorithm: 81% of YouTube users watch videos that YouTube's mysterious algorithm recommends to them. So, Pew thought it was worthwhile to conduct over 170,000 "random walks" through the YouTube universe to see if it could crack the code.
      It found that YouTube suggests its users watch "progressively longer and more popular content." While the first videos encountered averaged a runtime of 9:31, videos in the fifth and final step of the "walk" averaged almost 15 minutes long. A hotbed of misinformation: Almost two-thirds of users say they sometimes see videos on YouTube that are "obviously false or untrue."

      YouTube and Instagram face being blocked by Russian internet service providers as a result of a standoff between one of the country's richest businessmen and an opposition leader.
      Russia's internet censor blacklisted material on both services after a court ruled that it violated billionaire Oleg Deripaska's privacy rights.
      However, Alexei Navalny has refused to remove the videos and photos, which he claims are evidence of corruption.
      A Wednesday deadline has been set.
      If neither Mr Navalny nor the US tech firms involved delete or otherwise block local access to the imagery by the end of the day, then Russia's ISPs will be required to take action themselves.
      A group representing the industry has indicated that this could result in all local access to the social networks being curtailed since ISPs lack the facility to censor specific posts.
      "It's impossible for internet providers to block certain pages on Instagram and YouTube," a spokeswoman for the Russian Association for Electronic Communications told the BBC.

      Looking to watch live TV without a cable bill? YouTube TV is now available for $35 per month.
      Unlike the free YouTube you know so well, populated by cat videos, how-tos and myriad independent channels and shows, YouTube TV is a direct competitor to cable TV -- and you'll have to pay for it. In return you get live local TV channels like ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC as well as cable stalwarts like ESPN, the Disney Channel, Fox News and Bravo. (Disclosure: CBS is the parent company of CNET and Showtime.)
      One catch? It's only available in five US metropolitan areas for now: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay Area. YouTube says more cities will be added in the coming months.
      I've been playing with a demo account on a phone for the last couple days and it's mostly worked well. Unfortunately the experience on an actual TV is less satisfying. Unless you have a PC connected to your TV, you'll have to use a Chromecast or other cast-compatible device to get YouTube TV on the big screen, and until Google develops actual apps for devices like Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV -- like its competitors already have -- it feels half-baked for living-room use.
      And then there's the channel issue. Compared to cable, and even to other live streaming TV services like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue, the selection has some obvious holes. There's no CNN or TNT, no Comedy Central or HGTV, no Lifetime or MTV. YouTube gets credit for local channels, sports and Bravo, but for many people that's just not enough for the price.
      YouTube TV has some promising advantages, including a great cloud DVR and tight integration with YouTube itself, but it needs to add cities, channels and TV devices before it can compete against cable or other live TV services, particularly PlayStation Vue, my current favorite.
      Hey, don't take my word for it -- try it for yourself. There's a free 30-day trial before you'll have to pony up, and Google is throwing in a free Chromecast (worth $35) after the first month's payment, "while supplies last."
      How YouTube TV's features compare
      If you've never had cable TV service, you've already cut the cord or you're on the fence considering whether to do so, YouTube TV offers yet another way to stream live TV channels over the internet. Here's the basics:
      It's a subscription service, separate from regular YouTube, with more than 40 live TV channels $35 per month, seven-day free trial, cancel anytime Available only in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay Area Available only on iPhones, Android phones, tablets and computers To watch it on an actual TV, you'll need to use Chromecast, another cast-compatible device, or a PC connected to the TV. Cloud DVR with unlimited free storage (shows expire after 9 months) Up to six accounts included per household, with up to three simultaneous streams Three similar services exist already, namely Sling TV, PlayStation Vue and DirecTV Now, and Hulu has said it will debut yet another entry in this field before the end of the year, too. All offer various channel packages and features for a range of prices, starting at $20 per month for Sling TV, $30 for Vue and $35 for DirecTV Now. YouTube TV, conversely, has one set price and channel lineup.
      Unlike YouTube TV, each of its competitors is available nationwide, although channel lineups (and with Vue, pricing) vary per city, and you only get access to local channels in a few major cities. Each service also supports more TV devices than just YouTube, which is restricted to the Chromecast family of streamers for big-screen watching. Only PlayStation Vue also has a cloud DVR, however, and it's more limited than YouTube's (Vue's DVR shows expire after 28 days). Here's the full features breakdown between the four.

    • I think almost every Republican alive hopes and prays that Hillary will be the Democrat nominee for the 2020 Presidential contest. She will  be more composed, and again re-invented herself, and will cut quite the fashion figure in her matching ensemble one piece orange jump-suit.

    • What a great actress Keira Knightley is. She nailed this part so elegantly. What a story of one of France's most successful authors. It also showed how a country girl was tortured by picking the wrong man. But on the other hand he did make her into what she became?
    • After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as "Willy" (Dominic West), Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendor of Paris. Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After its success, Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their adventures inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette's fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression   Rating: R (for some sexuality/nudity) Genre: Drama Directed By: Wash Westmoreland Written By: Richard Glatzer, Wash Westmoreland, Rebecca Lenkiewicz In Theaters: Sep 21, 2018  Limited Runtime: 111 minutes Studio: Bleecker Street and 30WEST   https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/colette_2018/
    • Stan Lee, the legendary writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics whose fantabulous but flawed creations made him a real-life superhero to comic book lovers everywhere, has died. He was 95. Lee, who began in the business in 1939 and created or co-created Black Panther, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Mighty Thor, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil and Ant-Man, among countless other characters, died early Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, a family representative told The Hollywood Reporter. Kirk Schenck, an attorney for Lee's daughter, J.C. Lee, also confirmed his death. Lee's final few years were tumultuous. After Joan, his wife of 69 years, died in July 2017, he sued executives at POW! Entertainment — a company he founded in 2001 to develop film, TV and video game properties — for $1 billion alleging fraud, then abruptly dropped the suit weeks later. He also sued his ex-business manager and filed for a restraining order against a man who had been handling his affairs. (Lee's estate is estimated to be worth as much as $70 million.) And in June 2018, it was revealed that the Los Angeles Police Department had been investigating reports of elder abuse against him. On his own and through his work with frequent artist-writer collaborators Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and others, Lee catapulted Marvel from a tiny venture into the world's No. 1 publisher of comic books and, later, a multimedia giant. In 2009, The Walt Disney Co. bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion, and most of the top-grossing superhero films of all time — led by Avengers: Infinity War's $2.05 billion worldwide take earlier this year — have featured Marvel characters. "I used to think what I did was not very important," he told the Chicago Tribune in April 2014. "People are building bridges and engaging in medical research, and here I was doing stories about fictional people who do extraordinary, crazy things and wear costumes. But I suppose I have come to realize that entertainment is not easily dismissed." Lee's fame and influence as the face and figurehead of Marvel, even in his nonagenarian years, remained considerable.
