Monday Rundown: Loves the Lamborghini SUV
It’s Monday, and if you’re new to Quarterlife Man (welcome), you’re new to the Monday Rundown. The Monday Rundown is a compendium of randomness compiled over the course of each week. Enjoy…
[SPECIAL EVENING RUNDOWN]
––Feast Your Eyes, Quarterlifers:
This is the new Lamborghini SUV concept, the Urus:

––Monday Rundown: Also Thanks You For The Break
Just a quick thank you from the staff of writers at QM… we took the last week off and used it as a great time to get caught up in other areas, prepare for the future, and enjoy time with family and friends.
It doesn’t happen often (this is the first time we took a week’s break), but thanks for understanding.
––Hello, Creative Cloud
Welcome the Adobe Creative Cloud. Along with the latest version (CS6) of Adobe’s popular Creative Suite, the software-making giant will also roll out a cloud-based version, starting at $30/month (for those who have already bought the software at one time). For a month-to-month contract, you can expect to pay $75 per month. You also receive 20 gigabytes in cloud storage.
For those who have limited space (like a Macbook Air, for example), this is genius. And it’s also the future. [Note: revisit this post in five years]
––The First YouTube Video
YouTube is seven years old! That’s kind of crazy… can you imagine a world without YouTube? Here is the first video:
Although nothing special, it certainly paved the way for an incredible future. Here are some recent stats from the company, now a unit of Google:
- 60 hours of video are upladed every minute; one hour of video is uploaded every second.
- More than 4 billion videos are viewed every day.
- More than 3 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube.
- More video is uploaded to YouTube in one month than the three major U.S. networks created in 60 years.
- In 2011, YouTube had more than 1 trillion views or almost 140 views for every person on earth.
––Goodbye, 17″ MacBook Pro
Is the 17″ Macbook Pro going the way of the dinosaur? Possibly.
According to Mashable, sales just aren’t cutting it. The 13-inch and 15-inch MBPs sell 40x more units than the 17-inch models. KGI Securities research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts Apple is cutting the largest laptop it sells because of weak sales.
“While adding new products, Apple is likely to stop making the 17-in. MacBook Pro this year due to falling shipments, in order to maintain a lean product line strategy,” Kuo wrote in a report.
Will you miss the 17″ MBP?
––We Leave You With This.
Ever wonder why old books smell the way they do? So did we. Check it out.
