Revenue: Atlantic Re:think & Netflix House of Cards’ “The Ascent” – The Atlantic A panel of 25 judges from various “independent” magazine companies—essentially, those titles not published by Hearst, Condé Nast, Time Inc., and the like—refined more than 100 entries for the inaugural awards down to winners across six categories, plus a special, “Why Didn’t I Think of That?” award. See the full list of winners below: “Counter to the meganormous companies who are trying to appeal to the largest audience possible, tonight’s awards demonstrate that you don’t have to be everything to everyone in order to be successful—and that’s a wonderful accomplishment to celebrate,” said Seymour.

Email Dev Hynes reveals how he was able to creatively weave his personal stories with so many distinct voices on his new projectAna YglesiasGRAMMYs Sep 6, 2018 – 11:11 am The musician and producer Dev Hynes, best-known for his indie electro R&B project, Blood Orange, released Negro Swan on Aug. 24, his fourth LP under that moniker. Not unlike his music career, the album brings together an unexpected group of collaborators which together showcase Hynes’ creative vision and unique voice in an organic way.The third single from the album, “Saint” highlights Hynes’ masterful collaboration skills. The song features the voices of four other artists, including the indie-rock band Porches, all of which were recorded in different studios at different times. The music video, like many of his, including for “Jewelry,” was directed by the multi-talented (yet impossible to label) artist himself.Thanks to circumstances even Hynes himself may never know, with perhaps an almost magic text message, Hynes was able to get a dream collaboration on “Hope.” The track fits its title, with the one and only Puff Daddy offering hopeful spoken-word messages throughout the song.”What is it going to take for me not to be afraid to be loved the way, like, I really wanna be loved?…You give me that hope that maybe one day I’ll get over my fears and I’ll receive,” Puff says on the track.In an interview with Pitchfork, Hynes shares how the collab came together rather serendipitously. “While working on that song, I started doing fake Puff vocals, because I thought it sounded like that to me. And then I was like, ‘It’d be kind of cool if it actually was Puff.’ So I sent him a text, like, ‘I did this track, do you want to do this vocal part?’ And he replied, ‘Send it.’ He sent back his vocals, like, 20 hours later,” he shared, almost in awe himself of how it came together.The second single from the album, “Jewelry,” feels like an organic stream of consciousness with distinct parts, a distillation of the album’s themes and perhaps the artist’s life experiences as a whole. Hynes’ said that his label had been on him to get album art, but he had a gut feeling that the right image to represent the album would come from the shoot, and indeed it did. He wanted to work with Kai the Black Angel in the video, and a stunning image of him from the video shoot, wearing angel wings through the streets of New York, became the Negro Swan cover art.Clearly the artist knows when to trust his intuition and let the art flow naturally. If more evidence of this was needed, one could point to him featuring writer/director/activist Janet Mock as the narrator on the album, offering her insights on the albums themes across many of the tracks. Her voice and perspective offers a deeper cohesion to album, yet Hynes shares that her words were taken from a conversation they had one day in his studio when their paths crossed in New York; he shared his Negro Swan inspiration notebook with her and recorded her thoughts on it.While Negro Swan has recently created a lot of buzz around Hynes, and for good reason, he is no stranger to the music industry, having spent a lot of time behind-the-scenes writing and producing for a wide range of artists across genres, including GRAMMY winners Kylie Minogue, Solange, Basement Jaxx, and Chemical Brothers on “All Rights Reserved” from their GRAMMY-winning We Are The Night. There must be more than a little magic and a whole lot of creative vision behind what he makes feel almost effortlessly natural.Read more How Collaboration Made Blood Orange’s ‘Negro Swan’ how-collaboration-and-little-magic-made-blood-oranges-negro-swan Facebook Twitter How Collaboration And A Little Magic Made Blood Orange’s ‘Negro Swan’ News
Some members of a Fossil R&D team are also joining Google as part of the deal. César Salza / CNET Google is buying secret smartwatch technology from Fossil for $40 million. Design company Fossil said Thursday some members of the research and development team supporting that intellectual property will join Google as well. “We’ve built and advanced a technology that has the potential to improve upon our existing platform of smartwatches,” said Greg McKelvey, executive vice president and chief strategy and digital officer at Fossil, in a press release (PDF). “Together with Google, our innovation partner, we’ll continue to unlock growth in wearables.” The deal is expected to close later this month. Google declined to share further information about Fossil’s smartwatch technology that it’s buying. In 2015, Fossil acquired Misfit, a wearable-tech startup focused on fitness trackers, for $260 million. The deal married Fossil’s fashion and watchmaking skills with Misfit’s technology. But Fossil appears to be getting out of that market. Fossil and Google have put out a few smartwatches. The fashion company’s latest, Fossil Sport, was a Google Wear OS smartwatch released in November. The watch had Qualcomm’s newest 3100 wearable chip to make its battery life longer. Last year, Google and its partners like Fossil put the emphasis more on fitness when they designed their smartwatches. The devices’ fitness-tracking feature, Google Fit, was revamped with new Move Minutes and Heart Point goals.

However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

0 Lightning Motorcycles’ Strike is getting us all charged up 2020 GMC Sierra HD first drive: Towing tech marvel More From Roadshow 8 Photos Share your voice 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2019 Ford F-150 review: Popular pickup keeps on truckin’ Motorcycles Electric Cars Post a comment Enlarge ImageLightning’s Strike electric motorcycle packs 180 pound-feet of torque into a slightly more relaxed sportbike-like chassis. Lightning Motorcycle After months of teasing, the Lightning Motorcycles’ Strike is making its debut, and it looks promising, if not all that we hoped it would be.The base model Strike still comes in at the $13,000 price point that Lightning has been teasing, but its 70-to-100 mile range at that price point leaves something to be desired. That being said, the base model’s 10-kilowatt-hour battery can still be Level 2 charged in around two hours. If you want DC fast-charge capability on anything but the top-tier model, that will cost you an additional $1,500.The base Lightning’s performance — range notwithstanding — should be pretty decent though, with 90 horsepower on tap and a full 180 pound-feet of torque available at zero RPM. Stepping up to the top-of-the-line 20kWh model gets you an additional 30 horsepower. The base model bike weighs 455 pounds, while the Carbon Strike tips the scales at 485 pounds.Details on the suspension and brake components for the two lower-power models are a little scarce, but if you shell out nearly 20 large for the Carbon Strike edition, your bike will come with brakes by Brembo and suspension by Öhlins. You’ll also get an AIM dash with lap-timing abilities, and you’ll get your bike as early as July.Previous press releases from Lightning left us with a few questions about where the bike would be manufactured, since $13,000 is a relatively low price point for an electric motorcycle. Well, it happens that the answer isn’t as straightforward as “Made in America.” It’s more like “Made in America, sort of.”The bike undergoes final assembly at Lightning’s new facility in San Jose, California, but its components come from all over the world. Lightning isn’t giving us specifics on that, but it’s not uncommon for a vehicle’s various parts to come from many vendors around the world, and frankly, as long as the quality control from Lightning is good, we’re OK with that.So, in the end, was our excitement for the Strike justified? Kind of. Is it the world-beating, revolutionary, affordable electric motorcycle we were hoping for? At its entry-level price point, not really. The lack of standard DC fast charging across the range and the limited range of the base model aren’t ideal. The pricing structure that Lightning has going reminds us a lot of the one used by Zero.From a performance standpoint, we expect that the Strike will be a blast to ride. It’s not exactly a featherweight, but its combination of adequate power and stellar torque should be fun, and the slightly relaxed sportbike-like form factor should mean that it will do an excellent job of straightening out your favorite canyon road.The real test will come when we get to throw a leg over it.
