SNAPCHAT CHOOSES LONDON AS ITS BASE FOR INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS
Messaging app Snapchat said it would make London the home of its international operations, delivering another vote of confidence in Britain's tech standing as the country prepares to leave the European Union.The company, which has 150 million daily users globally, will book sales in countries where it has no local entity in Britain rather than routing them through lower tax jurisdictions like Ireland and Luxembourg as some other U.S. tech companies do.

DISNEY ELIMINATING SOME JOBS IN INDIA
Disney is expected to cut about 90 members of its staff in India, having previously announced that it is getting out of local film production.

SONY'S HUGE 4K PROJECTOR FOR READING MAGAZINES
This short-throw projector falls into the latter camp. Unveiled at CES 2017, the prototype can project a crisp 4K image to the wall it resides under. So far, so good. But after showing how well it handles photos and videos, the demo proposed another use case: browsing magazines. You can call up a grid of magazine covers as easily as a channel guide.

FACEBOOK IS TESTING MID ROLE VIDEO ADS
Facebook will begin testing “mid-roll” ads in videos on its platform, a move aimed to help media companies and the social network generate revenue from their growing video audiences, according to people familiar with the matter. The company has been testing the ads that run in the middle of videos for its live-streaming product, Facebook Live, but the new effort would extend that program into regular videos.

FORMER OBAMA STAFFERS MOVING FORWARD WITH MEDIA VENTURE
To begin with, "Crooked Media" won't be much more than the new incarnation of "Keeping it 1600" called "Pod Save America," which will still be available on iTunes and other podcasting platforms, but soon Vietor, who was formerly President Barack Obama's national security spokesman said the website (which will live at GetCrookedMedia.com) will become a multimedia platform for political analysis and activism.

HERE ARE 20 MEDIA INDUSTRY INDIVIDUALS YOU SHOULD FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM
Hey guess what, media industry people are regular folks too. Some of them just happen to have some cool jobs and some of them are really rich.

Like for example, Vice Media CEO Shane Smith and his lovely family spent last Thanksgiving in a rustic cabin at an undisclosed location. Dujour Media CEO Jason Binn never stops working.
