THE HOODIE WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR

We’ve all been there, where you want to listen to your headphones, but it’s raining or its super cold out, so you’ve got the hood of your hoodie up, but that makes things super awkward. Either you have to wire your headphones up and under your hoodie and slowly develop claustrophobia (“The wires! The headphones! This hood! I can’t breathe!”), or you don’t, and then it’s just a whole other, different mess. Well, no longer!

Finally, a hoodie that is your big bass-y headphones new best friend! Created by Betabrand out of San Francisco, their new hoodies are made out of “acoustically transparent fabric” which allows the sounds waves to pass through the hood and straight into your ear holes! Apparently the hoodie was initially designed to allow sound to pass through the hood easily, since it’s made of a similar material to the front of most speakers, so you’d be able to hear stuff even if you have your headphones up.

Another type of Betabrand hoodie will feature built in small headphones – so the time consuming horror of having to remember where you put them is gone forever! – but we will leave it up to you guys whether you think you’re cool enough to wear the big can headphones on the outside or not. (Hint: you’re not. Nobody is.)

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
