Show Notes for Thursday, September 07, 2023


Dear John,

My boyfriend cheated on me three months ago. We worked it out and stayed together. He says it was a one-time thing, and he says he loves me. He also says he will never do it again. But I want him to feel what I felt and really, truly regret it. So I'm thinking of having a quick affair... a one or two-night thing with some random guy. Then I wanted to tell him about it to see his reaction. I don't think he can possibly relate to how devastating it was for me until he feels it himself. What do you think? This actually makes sense, doesn't it?


Tried To Forgive, but Still Scorned

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Forget ‘The Wedding March’ — a new survey says that couples today are looking to make their wedding as unique…as they are. The poll of 2,000 adults in serious relationships, engaged or married, of various ages, found that 68% feel it’s important that their wedding is customized to be unique to them — rather than follow tradition. 45% said that means hosting the ceremony in a place with personal significance. What else makes a wedding unique to the couple? 36% said that involves staying away from “traditional” wedding music and choosing a different song to walk down the aisle. 29% feel the need to change up the traditional wedding dress code, and 18% are looking to choose an unconventional wedding theme. Customs considered outdated by respondents include: Not seeing each other before the ceremony (36%) and wearing a white dress (36%). But that doesn’t mean guests should show up in white. Almost one in 5 Gen-Zers say wearing white is the rudest thing you can do as a guest, but only 2% of baby boomers would take offense.

The great thing about Zoom is that by using it, you don’t have to physically go to meetings. But if Google Meet’s new AI tools are as good as advertised, you might not even have to show up online. At its Cloud Next conference, Google revealed a handful of new AI-powered features coming soon. One of them is the ability for Google’s “Duet AI” to take notes in real time. Simply click “take notes for me,” and the app will capture a summary and action items as the meeting is going on. If you’re late, it’ll show you a mid-meeting summary so you can catch up. During the call, you’ll be able to talk privately with a Google chatbot to go over details you might have missed. And when the meeting is over, you can save the summary and come back to it later. And considering it can even include video clips of important moments, why be there at all?

Even after her experience on “Newlyweds”, Jessica Simpson says she’d return to reality TV – but she isn’t exactly rushing to make her home life a public affair again. 20 years after documenting her marriage to now-ex Nick Lachey on the wildly popular MTV series, the 43-year-old revealed if she’d ever put herself, husband Eric Johnson and their 3 kids in front of the TV cameras, saying she’s up for a “docu-series”, which Newlyweds was supposed to be.” She believes her family “wouldn’t mind being on camera”…especially her 2 daughters, who are “definitely entertainers”.

Jimmy Kimmel claims he was ready to retire as late-night talk show host earlier this year — but the WGA writers strike changed his perspective. He made the revelation on the first episode of Spotify’s “Strike Force Five” podcast, which went live Wednesday, featuring a roundtable Zoom discussion among Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers and John Oliver. He said he was “very intent on retiring” when the strike started, but “now, I realize, oh yeah, it’s kind of nice to work.” Meyers response: “C’mon, you are the Tom Brady of late night… you have feigned retirement.” But Kimmel insisted that he was “very, very serious” about packing it in.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Elon Musk wants you to use his newly-branded “X” as an “everything app”. And with that in mind, he plans to launch video and audio calling capability on the social media app. Users will not need a phone number, and the features will be available on Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android and personal computers, he wrote in a tweet (or whatever we’re calling those now…). He did not give a timeline for the launch. After rebranding Twitter as X, Musk indicated he would turn the platform into a “super app” offering a range of services, including messaging, social networking, and peer-to-peer payments. LINK:

Google is testing a new feature that will allow us to search for songs on YouTube, simply by humming — or singing. Android users who are in the beta group can toggle the new feature from YouTube’s voice search and “hum or record the song you’re searching for 3 or more seconds.” Once the song has been identified by the software, YouTube will send the user all “relevant official music content, user-generated videos, and/or Shorts featuring the searched song in the YouTube app.” Right now, only a small portion of Android users have the feature, but if successful, it’ll be made available to everyone.
