You know you're getting old when even Fisher Price is doing things about coding.This Christmas, the toymaker is hoping that its Codeapillar might cash in on today's early learning app development push, as it's a toy that requires a small amount of something approximating coding to get it to move through mazes.This first mention of Christmas 2016 has come via Argos, which has assembled its hot list of the potentially most-bought presents for this year.The poor old Codeapillar languishes down at 10th place on the list, behind such weird cutting-edge toys as a baby that comes with a "new baby smell" out of the box, a £120 robot monkey for ungrateful rich kids to torture, a SelfieMic that allows children to record their own literally terrible music videos and more.Where once there was a baby doll that simply looked like the real thing, we now have one that SMELLS as sweet as a newborn."Scunthorpe Telegraph Want more updates from Gizmodo UK?

After the somewhat wacky and wonderful news about the Polish bilmekanikern that 2016 still balances drive shafts on a Commodore 64, we just had to.Yep – we grottar us down in spelnostalgi again, and this time we set, for natural reasons, the C64:an in focus.Before we throw ourselves over our hot list, we want to deliver a statement.This classic actually made his debut on the odd computers BBC Micro and Acorn Electron, before it eventually found its way on to other computers.The Last Ninja was, dare we say, groundbreaking.The Last Ninja was the graphics well, it really felt like to be catapulted back to the feudal Japan , the music aaah, and the atmospheric story...

p While the way we watch TV evolves, what we want to watch remains consistent: the hottest TV shows still have heart, soul and wit.HBO viewers were treated to big-screen performances from Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgård.Nickelodeon has already ordered a fourth season, and is doubling down on its success by ordering an animated spinoff, The Adventures of Kid Danger and Captain Man, which should lift the network’s ratings even higher.While ratings for its rivals have fallen, Nickelodeon just keeps dominating.1 in all three kids’ demos (2-11, 2-5 and 6-11), and has been the most-watched kids network for three years, while airing all of the top 10 shows last year among kids 2-11, including hits like The Thundermans and Game Shakers.The most startlingly relevant show on television, the Elisabeth Moss drama, based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, was an immediate hit for Hulu: last month’s debut episode was the most-watched—and most-acclaimed—premiere in the streaming network’s history.
When he arrived at NBC in early 2011, Robert Greenblatt knew he was inheriting a fourth-place network in dire straits.But the former Showtime president wasn’t fully prepared for what awaited him.“It was worse than I thought it was going to be—and I expected it to be bad,” recalls Greenblatt, noting that “all the great shows had come and gone” and “we had no digital or social presence whatsoever.” Still, he was undaunted by the task ahead of him: “I really wanted the job, because I love that kind of challenge.”–turned around the network from worst in the adults 18-49 demo to first by overhauling every division and methodically rebuilding the lineup, piece by piece: nurturing new hit The Voice (“if The Voice hadn’t happened, I don’t know if I would have ever come out of my own tailspin,” he admits); turning Dick Wolf’s Chicago Fire into a four-series franchise; restoring some of the luster to Thursday nights with ; establishing a popular annual tradition of ; launching a family hit with Little Big Shots; and helping the network rediscover its comedy identity with Superstore and The Good Place.This season, NBC reclaimed the 18-49 lead under his watch thanks to a mix of new and resurgent hits, led by freshman sensation This Is Us, which is Adweek’s Hot List winner for both Show of the Year and Drama of the Year.“People run around our business saying, ‘Broadcast is dead,’ but then you have 15 million viewers for This Is Us, 15 million viewers for America’s Got Talent and 10 to 12 million viewers for The Voice,” says Greenblatt.
We're bringing print and digital under the same roofIn the 37 years since Adweek first honored standout magazines in its annual Hot List, the publishing industry has undergone a massive transformation (to put it mildly), which we’ve been helping our readers navigate in our pages and online.As such, we felt that the Hot List itself was due for a refresher to keep apace of the increasingly digital, mobile and social world of content creation.On Oct. 30, we’ll unveil our brand new Publishing Hot List, which, for the first time, will honor the best in both print and digital publishing.We’ll continue to hand out a number of magazine-only awards—focusing solely on publishers’ print performances—while adding new digital awards, in which both digital natives and the digital arms of magazine and newspaper brands will compete.The Hot List will also look more closely at publishers’ performances on specific social platforms (namely Instagram and Snapchat) as well as their prowess in creating branded content.
How Jordan Klepper Finds the Funny in Alex Jones and the Alt-Right MediaThe Opposition will satirize outlets like Brietbart and InfowarsThirteen months after cancelling The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, Comedy Central has finally found its 11:30 p.m. companion to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.Tonight, the network is launching The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, which will satirize hyperbolic alt-media outlets like Brietbart and Infowars.Klepper, the former Daily Show correspondent, will follow in the footsteps of Stephen Colbert by hosting the 11:30 show as a fictionalized version of himself, a character he described over the summer as “a know-nothing provocateur who fights for the common man … Alex Jones meets Garrison Keillor.”As he prepared to launch the show—which will finally solidify Comedy Central’s late-night lineup—Klepper spoke with Adweek about how The Colbert Report inspired him, why The Opposition could be a great fit for brands and how much late night has changed in the past year.

One of the latest and most useful forms of marketing called Quick Response codes, or QR codes, is living up to its name, however, and getting just that -- a very quick response.With their reliance on bar codes, QR codes do not represent a new technology by any means.But they're on the 21st-century marketing hot list for reshaping the one-way bar-code system to make it more interactive.The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background.The medium was developed to allow content to be decoded at high speed.But after I tried a few and started to see how they worked and what businesses used them for, I began to understand not only the value in bar-code marketing but also the huge potential for businesses, large and small.
SNL hasn’t been doing many advertising spoofs so far this season, but last night they went one better—creating a trio of vintage advertising spoofs, as part of a fun Ad Council skit.Host Larry David played an adman—with a Jeff Goodby-esque ponytail and all—being honored with a lifetime achievement award for a career of purportedly outstanding PSAs.But as soon as some of his 30-year-old spots begin to screen at the Ad Council dinner, the room is suddenly horrified by them.It’s a bit ironic that Saturday’s SNL had a skit about David having created content in poor taste, considering the episode mostly made headlines for David’s monologue—which some considered actually in poor taste.Cecily Strong did an admirable job the skit’s emcee role, too, having had some experience emceeing actual advertising events—including hosting Adweek’s 2013 Hot List Gala.

On Tuesday, one of the largest LPR manufacturers, ELSAG, announced a major upgrade to "allow investigators to search by color, seven body types, 34 makes, and nine visual descriptors in addition to the standard plate number, location, and time."Such a vast expansion of the tech now means that evading such scans will be even more difficult.For years, Ars has been reporting on automated license plate readers (ALPRs, or simply LPRs)—a specialized camera often mounted on police cars that can scan at speeds of up to 60 plates per second.Those scans are compared against what law enforcement usually dubs a "hot list" before alerting the officer to the presence of a potentially wanted or stolen vehicle.All scans are typically kept in a police database for weeks, months, or years on end.These devices are now in common use by cities big and small across the United States, as well as many countries around the globe, including the United Kingdom.

As media companies and the content they produce continue to move away from singular platforms to a smorgasbord of omnichannel offerings, Adweek’s coveted Hot List has evolved from a magazine awards franchise to publishing, digital and TV/video honors as well.There is no better example of mastering the omnichannel experience than Adweek’s Media Visionary Ellen DeGeneres, who rose from her early days as a stand-up comic to entertainer, TV host, producer, activist and cultural icon.The secret to her success may lie in her oft-said credo “Be kind to others,” and in speaking to DeGeneres it’s clear she lives and breathes this every day.With DeGeneres’ popularity exploding, she smartly extended her growing media empire online, rolling up all her digital assets into the Ellen Digital Network.You can read more on EDN from staff writer Sara Jerde.We have too many Hot List awards to list here (perhaps you’ve heard of Fortnite HQ and Netflix’s Queer Eye?).
In the era of Peak TV, the degree of difficulty is higher than ever for shows and networks as they try to make an impact with viewers.That’s what makes this year’s TV Hot List winners so impressive, as the list reveals all the ways the industry is changing—from Netflix taking up all the oxygen (and much of the top talent like Adweek’s TV Creator of the Year Kenya Barris) in the TV space to megamergers like the Discovery-Scripps union that put Adweek’s TV Executive of the Year Kathleen Finch in charge of 11 networks—and how much it’s stayed the same, from the continued resilience of broadcast shows like The Big Bang Theory to the revival of many of our favorite shows from the past, like Queer Eye and Murphy Brown.The Big Bang Theory (CBS)The CBS comedy juggernaut, which is now in its 12th and final season, will be going out on top, as its audiences prop up not one but two networks.Big Bang was the most-watched prime-time show last season, averaging a whopping 18.8 million viewers, while its syndicated episodes continue to keep TBS on top in the demo among entertainment cable networks.No more seasons of Scandal for ABC?
