It’s no secret that New Mexico has become a premier destination for the film industry. Independence Day: Resurgence, The Mule, Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad are just a few of the most recent films and TV shows that have shot in New Mexico. This is in part thanks to the Refundable Film and Media Tax Credit, an incentive that rebates 25-30 percent of most film and digital media production expenses incurred in New Mexico. The growth of the film industry has resulted in some major payoffs, such as spurring the state’s universities to create related degree programs, generating relevant talent and attracting Netflix to Albuquerque.

The price, paired with a growing library of games, made it an easy recommendation. But this industry moves quickly and there are a lot of new factors that complicate the question of if PSVR remains a worthy purchase.

How many users do Spotify, Apple Music and other big music streaming services have?

Article | April 16, 2020

Sometimes the statistics around how many people are streaming music – and how many are paying for it – can lead to confusion and misinterpretation. Recently, for example, we’ve seen one story suggesting that Amazon was “on course to overtake Apple Music” based on comparing an Amazon figure from January 2020 with one from Apple that hadn’t been updated since June 2019. Another story claimed that “Pandora has overtaken Apple for second spot” in subscriber rankings, which mistakenly compared the former’s number of active listeners (most of whom don’t pay) to the latter’s paid subscriber count.
