music headphonesIn 2016, online music listening increased by 76% across the Atlantic. This is what the Nielsen Music firm reveals in its year-end report. This growth allows streaming to surpass download sales for the first time in the United States. The strong growth of streaming even led to a 3% increase in music consumption compared to 2015, says Nielsen Music.

Over the past twelve months, Americans have listened to 431 billion songs on on-demand music platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, etc.). Over the past year, Drake has been the most successful artist, both in terms of digital song sales and the stream of songs released (5.4 billion). His album “Views” was also the most listened to in 2016.

<a href=> Uber </a> Movement “class =” size-medium wp-image-274281 alignright “height =” 175 ″ src = “http: // www. <a href=> Uber </a> -Movement1-550 × 309.png »style =» »title = »» Width = »250 ″ /> <a href=> Uber </a> tries to come to terms with the cities in which the VTC platform operates.  At least, the company headed by <strong> Travis Kalanick </strong> has just launched a platform, called “<a rel= Movement “, To provide access to the travel data of its drivers, and therefore of its customers, in the more than 450 cities served by Uber .

The VTC platform believes that its data could be used for the public good by planners, researchers and municipal services to improve urban mobility. In fact, cities could thus obtain information relating to average travel times, congestion zones or even the impact of major events on urban traffic. In order to ensure respect for the privacy of its users, the American company says that it will only offer access to its aggregated and anonymized data.

Through this partial release of its data, Uber seeks above all to get closer to the municipalities to enter into agreements with the authorities. And for good reason, the VTC platform is in conflict with several cities around the world, notably in San Francisco, where the company is based.
