Celebrate This Terrible Winter With The Highlights Of Amazon’s Summer Preview

Amazon.com hosted a summer preview event in New York City today, and I’ll be real honest: I thought there was going to be more tech stuff. Nonetheless, we soldiered on with a whirlwind tour of the cruelly summer-themed exhibits, highlighting new and popular products on sale on Amazon. Unfortunately, we couldn’t demo the chainsaw or the “Roomba for your lawn,” but I was able to try out the Fire TV (particularly the new Sling TV app), as well as Firefly, the Fire Phone technology for identifying real-world products. (Also, I doubt anyone cares, but I should probably disclose that my roommate works at Comixology, which Amazon acquired last year.) Article source:...

Apple Offers Extended Coverage For 2011-2013 MacBook Pros With Video Issues

Apple is offering a new repair program that extends coverage for certain MacBook Pro models made between 2011 and 2013 that are exhibiting problems related to video. The program offers either free repairs on affected models, or reimbursement for repairs already paid for by users. To check if your MacBook Pro is among those covered by the extension, head to Apple’s support tool and enter the serial number that you can find on your machine’s “About This Mac” dialog box under the ‘’ menu in OS X. Models that may be affected include the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro, as well as the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, provided they were manufactured during the 2011 to 2013 time span. Symptoms your machine may be exhibiting if it’s affected include video distortion, lack of video or image despite a powered-on computer, or unexpected system restarts. Only in the case of a Mac actually showing these symptoms should you contact Apple to take advantage of the repair program, since otherwise you most likely don’t have a problem. Apple has generally been very good about extending warranties when it finds more system problems affecting models out of warranty. The company provided an official statement to TechCrunch regarding the repair program extension: We’ve found that a small percentage of MacBook Pro models sold between February 2011 and December 2013 may exhibit video issues and...

MATIX 2015 Spring "Secondhand Exposure" Lookbook

The team behind Californian workwear label Matix are often inspired by what they see and experience, traveling to Santa Babara’s Orchid Ranch to seek creative direction for last year’s offering. Now, for its 2015 spring lookbook titled “Secondhand Exposure,” creative inspiration stems from the concept of discovering something new in old places. An example offered by the brand is the metamorphosis of a cactus in the springtime, with the blooming of neon flowers on its surface allowing you to gaze at a site typically unseen. The collection sports an Americana aesthetic with graphic print T-shirts, short sleeve button ups and trucker caps. Shot entirely on a Canon AE-1 using Portra 160 film, check out the lookbook above and let us know what you think. Article source:...
