Hung up on you: why nothing can disconnect pop’s phone obsession9h Hung up on you: why nothing can disconnect pop’s phone obsession
From Abba to Cardi B, songs about missed calls and answering machines are never out of the charts. But why are there so few hits about texting? “I’m so passionate about phones that I made a song about them, just so I could commission a 10ft phone replica for the video and keep it to have in my kitchen,” declares chart-bothering producer and artist Jax Jones. He’s talking to the Guide over the phone. “My connection with my phone is getting stronger every day!” Jones may be exaggerating slightly, but he does indeed have a ludicrous prop handset in his kitchen and it is, indeed, from the video for

Dear Mr President: Obama on how letters from the American people shaped his time in office — interview10h Dear Mr President: Obama on how letters from the American people shaped his time in office — interview
During his presidency, Barack Obama read 10 letters from members of the public every day. He reveals what they meant to him It was October 2016. Hurricane Matthew had just rolled out to sea, Samsung phones were catching fire, Hillary Clinton was up by double digits in the national polls and the unthinkable was still unthinkable. Shailagh Murray had spent two terms in the White House helping to lead the administration’s communications strategy and it appeared to have taken its toll. With Obama just a few months away from leaving office, journalists wanted exit interviews; they wanted to be first, biggest, loudest. She was sick of the egos, the same old questions. The letters, she said, served as a respite from all that, and she offered to show some to me. She chose a navy blue binder, pulled it off the shelf, and opened it, fanning through page after page of letters, some handwritten in cursive on personal letterheads, others block printed on notebook paper and decorated with stickers; there were business letters, emails, faxes and random photographs of families, soldiers and pets. “You know, it’s this dialogue he’s been having with the country that people aren’t even aware of,” she said, referring to Obama’s eight-year habit of cor­responding with the American public. “Collectively, you get this kind of American tableau.”

At the time, Allison was one of football’s great outsized figures, a cigar-smoking, fedora-wearing rent-a-gob who also happened to be a visionary coach – albeit one whose reputation for motivating players was very much on the slide by the time Granada’s cameras arrived at Maine Road.
