Former Apple engineer creates incredible new furniture design

When former Apple engineer Brad Sewell moved from California to Boston to attend Harvard Business School, he quickly became frustrated with the state of the furniture market.

“I had this taste in quality, Sewell told Entrepreneur, “but a budget that was like ‘graduated IKEA’. There wasn’t much between your disposable furniture and the really high-end stuff.”

So like many ambitious go-getters, Sewell dropped out of Harvard and created a company to address his furniture concerns. The result? An innovative new company called Campaign.

Four-day Workweeks Raise Productivity

Four-day work weeks are growing in popularity and you’ll absolutely love them

Four-day work weeks are growing in popularity and you’ll absolutely love them

Being stuck in an office five days a week for at least eight hours a day doesn’t necessarily make you more productive, as there are plenty of ways to pretend you’re working when you really aren’t. In fact, it looks like more and more companies have come to realize that their employees might be better off working four-day work weeks since they’ll still be able to get the job done in spite of taking more personal time.

These photos show why you never want your city to host the Olympics

Earlier this summer, my hometown of Boston made national headlines after its citizens waged a successful campaign to kill the city’s bid for hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics.

A couple of months ago, Lexus introduced its rideable Hoverboard to the world in a YouTube video. We couldn’t be certain whether or not it was a prank, as no one actually rode the floating skateboard in the video, but earlier this month, we finally got to see the Hoverboard in action. It was incredible, but even with video proof, it’s still hard to believe it’s real. More →

Burger King just proposed the unthinkable

Other than Coke-vs.-Pepsi, I can’t think of a fiercer food company rivalry than McDonald’s-vs.-Burger King. Because of this, I was astounded to see that Burger King has asked McDonald’s to join it in creating a super sandwich to celebrate International Day of Peace called the McWhopper. More →

Siri can be a life saver… literally

Siri probably isn’t the most frequently used feature on your iPhone. It’s occasionally hard of hearing, it’s rarely more convenient than simply unlocking your phone and finding the information you need, and it can be obnoxious to attempt to use it in public. But in a moment of desperation, Apple’s digital assistant could save your life. More →

There’s a petition to get Jon Stewart to moderate a presidential debate

American politics got a lot less interesting when Jon Stewart left The Daily Show earlier this month. The comic had been on the air for over 15 years pointing out the hypocrisy of the news media and the politicians they covered, but fans still haven’t had enough of Stewart’s wry wit, which is why one petition has been gaining traction quickly.
