The same strategy that helped make Jay-Z’s Tidal a disaster is making Apple look brilliant

Look at Beyonce. Just look at her. All beautiful and bright and laid back and… rich. Sitting on her private jet, casually glancing out the window with peacock feathers hanging from her bandana and hair brooch that is just too fashionable to bear. But… wait… what’s that on her wrist? Is that… an Apple Watch?

You know it is. More →

Apple Watch Unboxing

You can’t buy an Apple Watch today, so enjoy this unboxing

You can’t buy an Apple Watch today, so enjoy this unboxing

Apple launch days are like no other company’s releases, and that holds especially true for the Apple Watch. Why? Because when most products are released, consumers can, you know, buy them. That simply isn’t the case with the Apple Watch, which will only be obtained on Friday by a fraction of people who preordered them, and an even smaller number of people willing to wait in line outside a handful of fashion retailers.

The odds are pretty good that despite how much you want an Apple Watch today, you won’t get one. You can, however, enjoy this unboxing while you wait for your own watch to arrive. More →

Video: Three new Apple Watch ads debut for launch day

Happy Apple Watch launch day, Apple fans! As we discussed in the most recent episode of our podcast, the Apple Watch release is unique in a number of ways. Beyond the fact that most people who want a Watch aren’t going to get one today, it’s interesting that hardcore Apple fans are perhaps more excited about today’s launch than even a new iPhone, while typical consumers don’t really seem to care all that much. That should change over time, of course, as Watches begin to proliferate and as Apple kicks its massive marketing and advertising push into high gear.

To start things off, Apple has released three new Apple Watch ads to give the public a taste of what everyone can expect. More →

A rare behind-the-scenes look as Mercedes builds its most beautiful sportscar ever

Guy Kawasaki is a name most people in the tech industry are familiar with, thanks largely to his roles with Apple and his subsequent investments in Pandora and other companies with the venture capital firm he co-founded, Garage Technology Ventures. What you might not know is that Kawasaki is also a big car fanatic, and he often gets access to things most car fans will never enjoy.

Case in point: Kawasaki recently toured Mercedes’ AMG facility where the stunning AMG GT and GT S are built. More →

How to use free public Wi-Fi without hackers stealing your data

How to use free public Wi-Fi without hackers stealing your data

Free public Wi-Fi hotspots are terrific. They offer users quick and reliable Internet connections where cellular reception is spotty. And even in areas with strong cellular signals, users can connect their phones, tablets and laptops to public Wi-Fi hotspots in order to conserve data on their mobile plans and steer clear of those pesky data caps.

Of course, there is one problem with public Wi-Fi networks, and it’s a big one: They’re completely open, which means any data you send or receive while connected to these networks is vulnerable and can easily be stolen by hackers. More →

Watch an angry Robert Downey Jr. walk out of the worst Avengers interview ever

With just over one week left until the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, several of the film’s stars have kicked their publicity tours into high gear.
