Infographic : The Evolution of Video Game Storage

December 17, 2017

In early video games, there was no need for storage, as these games usually had no actual plot to develop and were generally very short in length — meaning saved games were irrelevant. The fourth generation of consoles, also called the 16-bit generation, was the first to save your in-game progression and began in 1977.During this era, gaming storage was described in megabits instead of megabytes. Games were played through cartridges and saved games were held on the cartridges themselves. Most games only required a few megabytes of space.Cartridges were used between 1977 and 1996, ending with the Nintendo 64.

Instagram continues to perform strongly despite inconsistent brand identity

Article | June 30, 2021

Over the last few months Instagram has done its best to capitalise on the latest social media success tactics, often at the cost of its own original user proposition. The photo-sharing app for friends now offers Reels, imitating TikTok’s success. It has rolled out an option to hide Likes, the iconic feature which has characterised social media as a whole since inception. And it now is introducing ‘suggested posts’ to users’ feeds, sorted by topics a profile states they are interested in – potentially putting these ahead of photos and videos shared by profiles they actually follow. Directly mimicking TikTok, this seems to diverge very little in practice from hashtags, which are its original discovery feature. Instead, it seems to want to emulate the usability which younger users are familiar with from TikTok, in order to entice them to increase their Instagram engagement.
