Breakfasts of Champions: What Hugely Successful People Really Eat for Breakfast

That said, we know at least one prominent example of a successful person who isn’t on Business Insider’s list that counters the idea that you need to eat well in the morning to be a success. More →

Apple’s Plan to Radically Redesign the iPhone: New Report Offers More Key Details

Earlier on Monday, we told you about a new rumor that started cropping up suggesting that Apple has plans to dump the iPhone’s iconic phycial home button in the future in favor of a virtual home button.

Watch John Oliver rip the Confederate Flag and its supporters into pieces

Many people from the Southern United States sincerely believe the Civil War-era Confederate Flag is a symbol of Southern heritage and not of racism. However, many of those people probably aren’t aware that South Carolina in particular didn’t actually start flying the Confederate Flag outside its State House until 1962, when it was intended to be a direct rebuke to the Civil Rights movement. This is why to many more people the flag is a symbol of a desire to keep racial minorities as permanent second-class citizens. More →

Taylor Swift Vs. Apple Music

My Jaw Dropped When I Realized How Powerful Taylor Swift is

My Jaw Dropped When I Realized How Powerful Taylor Swift is

Holy crap. I had expected Apple at some point to reverse course and start paying artists during the company’s three-month trial period for Apple Music, but not this quickly and not in response to a Taylor Swift Tumblr post. To recap: Just hours after Swift published a scathing criticism of Apple’s decision to offer users a three-month free trial period for Apple Music without compensating artists during that time, Apple’s Eddy Cue took to Twitter to announce that Apple will reverse course and pay royalties for songs that customers stream during their trial period. Holy crap.

Why Android Fans Should be Grateful Motorola Still Exists

Motorola’s smartphones don’t get the same level of hype and attention that Samsung’s do, and that’s actually a real shame. One of the things that really impressed us about the second-generation Moto X in particular was how it didn’t spam us with gimmicky software — instead, the few additions it made to Android were really well thought out and useful. In an interview with Green Bot, Motorola senior VP of software engineering Seang Chau explains how the Moto X’s lack of bloatware is all part of the company’s philosophy of leaving a light touch on its devices.
