Time Out (magazine)

Time Out is a global magazine published by Time Out Group. Time Out started as a London-only publication in 1968 and has expanded its editorial recommendations to 315 cities in 58 countries worldwide. In 2012, the London edition became a free publication, with a weekly readership of over 307,000. Time Out's global market presence includes partnerships with Nokia and mobile apps for iOS and Android operating systems, it was the recipient of the International Consumer Magazine of the Year award in both 2010 and 2011 and the renamed International Consumer Media Brand of the Year in 2013 and 2014. Time Out was first published in 1968 as a London listings magazine by Tony Elliott, who used his birthday money to produce a one-sheet pamphlet, with Bob Harris as co-editor; the first product was titled. Time Out began as an alternative magazine alongside other members of the underground press in the UK, but by 1980 it had abandoned its original collective decision-making structure and its commitment to equal pay for all its workers, leading to a strike and the foundation of a competing magazine, City Limits, by former staffers.

By now its former radicalism has all but vanished. As one example of its early editorial stance, in 1976 London's Time Out published the names of 60 purported CIA agents stationed in England. Early issues had a print run of around 5,000 and would evolve to a weekly circulation of 110,000 as it shed its radical roots; the flavour of the magazine was wholly the responsibility of its designer, Pearce Marchbank. Marchbank was invited by Tony Elliott to join the embryonic Time Out in 1971. Turning it into a weekly, he produced its classic logo, established its strong identity and its editorial structure—all still used worldwide to this day, he conceived and designed the first of the Time Out guide books.... He continued to design for Time Out for many years; each week, his witty Time Out covers became an essential part of London life. Elliott launched Time Out New York, his North American magazine debut, in 1995; the magazine hired young and upcoming talent to provide cultural reviews for young New Yorkers at the time.

The success of TONY led to the introduction of Time Out New York Kids, a quarterly magazine aimed at families. The expansion continued with Elliott licensing the Time Out brand worldwide spreading the magazine to 40 cities including Istanbul, Beijing, Hong Kong and Lisbon. Additional Time Out products included travel magazines, city guides, books. In 2010, Time Out became the official publisher of travel guides and tourist books for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Time Out's need to expand to digital platforms led to Elliott, sole owner of the group until November 2010, to sell half of Time Out London and 66 percent of TONY to private equity group Oakley Capital, valuing the company at £20 million; the group, founded by Peter Dubens, was owned by Tony Elliott and Oakley Capital until 2016, the agreement provided capital for investment to expand the brand. Time Out has subsequently launched websites for an additional 33 cities including Delhi, Washington D. C. Boston and Bristol; when it was listed on London's AIM stock exchange.

In June 2016, Time Out Group underwent an IPO and is listed on London's AIM stock exchange trading under the ticker symbol'TMO'. The London edition of Time Out became a free magazine in September 2012. Time Out's London magazine was hand-distributed at central London stations, received its first official ABC Certificate for October 2012 showing distribution of over 305,000 copies per week, the largest distribution in the history of the brand; this strategy increased revenue by 80 percent with continued upsurge. Time Out has invited a number of guest columnists to write for the magazine; the columnist as of 2014 was Giles Coren. In April 2015, Time Out switched its New York magazine to the free-distribution model to increase the reader base and grow brand awareness; this transition doubled circulation by increasing its web audience, estimated to be around 3.5 million unique visitors a month. Time Out increased its weekly magazine circulation to over 305,000 copies, complementing millions of digital users of Time Out New York.

Time Out New York is now available free every other Wednesday in vending boxes and newsstands across New York City. In addition to magazines and travel books and websites, Time Out launched Time Out Market, a food and cultural market experience based wholly on editorial creation, starting with the Time Out Market Lisboa in Lisbon, Portugal. New Time Out Markets are set to open in Miami, New York and Montreal in 2019 and in London-Waterloo and Prague in 2021 – all featuring the cities’ best and most celebrated chefs, restaurateurs and cultural experiences. Time Out Market Boston opened in June 2019. Time Out Global Homepage "Time Out to cut about 40 staff in UK and US"

.DS Store

In the Apple macOS operating system. DS_Store is a file that stores custom attributes of its containing folder, such as the position of icons or the choice of a background image; the name is an abbreviation of Desktop Services Store.

These comments are stored in the extended file attributes, but Finder does not read those. In earlier Apple operating systems, Finder applications created similar files, but at the root of the volume being accessed, including on foreign file systems, collecting all settings for all files on the volume; the complaints of many users prompted Apple to publish means to disable the creation of these files on remotely mounted network file systems. Since macOS High Sierra, Apple delays the metadata gathering for. DS_Store for folders sorted alphanumerically to improve browsing speed. However, these instructions do not apply to local drives, including USB flash drives, although there are some workarounds. Before Mac OS X 10.5. DS_Store files were visible on remote filesystems..
