YouTube Relaunches Music Page

YouTubers are now privy to a cadre of features, including: 1). Recommended videos and artists based on your viewing history (instead of top videos in the genre), 2). Local concert listings paired with artist vids (listings were previously offered, but now feature video previews) 3). YouTube’s new music chart, theYouTube Top 100, and, perhaps most intriguing, another level of curation in the form of tastemaker partnerships. YouTube has linked up with Spin, Vice, XLR8R and some of its top music vloggers (Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop for one) to create playlists and offer up picks.

To celebrate the new page, YouTube is featuring an electric guitar in its logo — a tribute to the “Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Guide to Rock,” the first curated playlist on the page. (The Chili Peppers dropped their first video from their latest album I’m With You Wednesday.) Other artists will soon unleash their own guides, including “David Guetta’s Guide to Electronica” on Friday, “Lady Gaga’s Guide to Pop” on Saturday and “Eminem & Royce Da 5’9”’s Guide to Hiphop” on Monday.

Porsche 911 – 2012

Ahead of the IAA car tradeshow in Frankfurt, images have leaked of the upcoming 2012 Porsche 911, certainly one of the more anticipated cars to come out in the near future.

While keeping the shape very similar to the current 911, the Stuttgart car manufacturer added a few design details that make overall quite a big difference. Both the front and back have been updated and while seeming a little more round, the car looks even more sporty and aggressive than before. Concerning the interior you really feel the luxury expertise that Porsche has gained over the years, mainly due to their Panamera model. Comfort, functionality and just overall appearance have received a big upgrade inside the car.
