Time seems to work differently when you spend your days online. The memes, moments, and scandals that feel like ages ago are often really only months, weeks, or even days in the past — and what was once unthinkable quickly transforms into how it's always been.
We stan a meme that calls for standards. Last week, Twitter user Kat Hasty posted a picture of a depressing living room, bare except for a single reclining armchair and a TV. There's no art on the walls, no surfaces other than the kitchen counter, and no lamps other than a harsh overhead light.

威锋网 1 月 22 日消息，就在今天凌晨，微软发布了一个全新的 Windows Redstone 预览版更新：Windows 10 Redstone Build 11102。本次更新主要针对参与 Windows Insider 测试会员的用户，并且要求开启“快速更新（Fast ring）”选项。据称，Build 11102 仅重点针对 Windows 10 默认浏览器 Microsoft Edge 进行了一些重要特征的更新。
