Beats unveiling the new $ 50 Beats Flex wireless earbuds come right after Apple announced it would no longer include a pair of earphones or charging cube when the iPhone 12 drops. The Beats Flex is a much-needed update to the wrap around the neck style of wireless earphones first introduced in 2017.
The Beats Flex doesn’t have all of the features that Apple’s AirPods boast. Still, it does definitely deliver a solid listening experience and features the latest technology plus great battery life at a budget price. The Beats Flex feature Apple’s W1 chip which allows for one-touch pairing with your all of your Apple devices, seamless switching between each device, checking battery life and Audio sharing with friends.
Android users will have to download a separate app to enjoy those same features listed above.

As for the design, the Beats Flex is made of durable Nitinol material, and the Flex-Form cable is extremely lightweight and described as ” nearly unnoticeable ” while being worn. The earbuds are magnetic, which allows them to automatically play music when they are in your ears and pause when resting around your neck. Due to everyone’s ears not being the same, the Beats Flex comes with four eartip options that will obtain a personalized, secure fit so you can enjoy an optimal sound and comfortable experience.
Speaking of sound, the Beats Flex offers users rich, balanced sound with outstanding stereo separation thanks to a proprietary layered driver with dual-chamber acoustics. An advanced digital processor helps fine-tunes the sound for precise mids, accurate bass, and low distortion.
Last but certainly least, the Beats Flex promises up to 12-hours of battery life. With the inclusion of a USB-C charging cable, users can enjoy 10-minute Fast Fuel charging and an additional 1.5 hours of playback when the battery is low.
The Beats Flex is available for preorder at Apple.com now and will be available in the Beats Black and Yuzu Yellow color options beginning October 21. Additionally, the Smoke Gray and Flame Blue and will be available sometime in early 2021.
Apple Music and Howard Univesity teamed up to produce a live-streamed racial justice event called Rap LIfe Live featuring an elite line-up of hip-hop acts, using the prestigious campus as a backdrop in Washington D.C.
Hypebeast reports that the event will deliver unique performances by Lil Baby, Wale, Rapsody, and Nas, along with Apple Music’s own Nadeska, LowKey, and, Ebro Darden as hosts.
Rap Life Live aims to further extend the conversation around social issues impacting the Black community with the help of artists who use their music and influence to address police reform, racial and gender equality, social justice, and standing up to racism.
“Our voice is our biggest weapon,“ Rapsody answered when asked by Howard University why she wanted to participate. “You have to speak up for what you want. You have to be the change. Speak to each other. Speak up, let people hear you.” Asked the same question, Nas answered “Whatever is going on in society, affects people. People affect society. And People are going to speak and artists are going to make art.”
As Apple Music’s global head of Hip-Hop and R&B, Ebro plans to expand the inaugural event on other campuses in an effort to continue the momentum of the conversation.
”The Rap Life team’s main objective was to use our voice and tools to show support and solidarity with students, artists and activists around the nation rising up to make sure the world knows that Black Lives Matter,” Ebro said. “We plan to bring Rap Life Live to more HBCU campuses because these institutions are part of the backbone of Black communities and Hip-Hop is from the Black experience.”
DC Comics’ future is looking real bright based on everything that was shown during today’s virtual Comic-Con-like event, the DC FanDome. Here are the most significant announcements.
DC fans didn’t mind being stuck in the house on a Saturday due to the all of the epic reveals that went down during the DC FanDome. The event will span over two days, August 22, and September 12. Today, all of the virtual action took place in the Hall of Heroes, and, of course, the ladies kicked things off first.
Wonder Woman: 1984

The FanDome kicked things off with Wonder Woman: 1984 panel that featured the film’s director Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman herself, the lovely Gal Gadot, her on-screen love interest Chris Pine whose character, Steve Trevor, somehow comes back to life. Kristen Wigg and Pedro Pascal, who take on the roles as the film’s villains, were also apart of the panel and helped field questions from fans.
Once that was out of the way, it was time to drop the second trailer, and it didn’t disappoint. We got to see more fantastic Wonder Woman action, and some more scenes of Diana and Steve together. Still, most importantly, Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah finally getting her spots and tail and doing battle with Wonder Woman.
Jenkins also confirmed that film is still on track to premiere in theaters exclusively on October 2, stating during the panel, “I really think the movie is so great on the big screen.” Yeah, we don’t know about that, especially if Rona is still running rampant in the United States. Anyway, you can peep the trailer for Wonder Woman:1984 below.
The Suicide Squad
Outside some of the cast announcements, not much was known about James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad film, that was until today. Gunn, who is best known for turning a bunch of relatively unknown Marvel Superheroes called the Guardians of The Galaxy into household names, is looking to do the same, but this time with a bunch of DC supervillains.
Gunn is basically wiping the slate clean and trying to help us forget the first Suicide Squad film that honestly sucked big time. BUT he is keeping the few bright spots from the first film like Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis reprising her role as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag and Jai Courtney coming back as Captain Boomerang. Gunn dug deep in DC’s crates for this second film, which will not be a direct sequel to the first film and is being described by Gunn as a follow-up to John Ostrander’s original run of “Suicide Squad.”
During the panel for the film, Gunn revealed all of the members of the squad and joining the names listed above include Idris Elba (Bloodsport), John Cena (Peacemaker), David Dastmalchian (Polka-Dot Man), Steve Agee (King Shark), Michael Rooker (Savant), Sean Gunn (Weasel), Peter Calpadi (The Thinker), Pete Davidson (Black Guard), Daniela Melchior (Rat Catcher), Flula Borg (Javelin), Mayling NG (Mongal), Alice Braga (Sol Soria), and Nathan Fillion (T.D.K).
No one but Gunn could make this film work. The Suicide Squad arrives in theaters on August 6, 2021. We didn’t get a trailer, but this montage of behind the scenes and actual film footage will hold you over till one finally arrives.
Justice League: The Snyder Cut
Source: Warner Bros. Pictures / HBO Max
Justice League stunk, let’s just get that out of the way. Immediately following the film’s release fans SCREAMED on the internet that Zack Snyder, who was initially tasked with bringing all of DC’s mightiest heroes together on film, should release the long-rumored “Snyder Cut” of the movie.
After years of denial, Snyder confirmed the cut of the film does indeed exist, and it is coming, but not in theaters but on HBO’s new streaming service, HBO Max. During today’s panel, we finally got to see a teaser of the highly-anticipated redo, which will feature new footage, Darkseid, a better looking Steppenwolf and, most importantly, Superman in his black suit. Snyder used the moment to confirm the film is astounding 4 hours long and will and will be broken up into 4 1-hour long episodes. Snyder did also say that the film will be dropped in its 4-hour entirety. We don’t know who got time for that, but whatever. You can peep the trailer for the movie, which comes to HBO Max next year.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get any footage, BUT we did learn a lot about the upcoming film, which will see Ezra Miller reprising his role as Barry Allen. During the panel, which featured Miller, Director Andy Muschietti, and screenwriter Christina Hodson the trio confirmed that film will see The Flash traveling through time to change the DC Multiverse.
Also, during the panel, it was hinted that The Flash could possibly visit classic DC films, so that could perhaps explain why Michael Keaton, who played Batman in Danny Elfman’s 1989 Batman film, will be making an appearance in The Flash movie. Plus, in some concept art that was shown revealing The Flash’s new costume, which we learned was created by Batman, we see Michael Keaton’s version of The Dark Knight.
Not much was known about the film revolving around the DC antihero, Black Adam, who basically has the same powers as Zachary Levi’s Shazam. Today, Dwayne The Rock Johnson helped shed more light on the film that’s slated to arrive in 2021. Before we got some juicy details about the film, The Rock detailed his character’s origin story with the help of animated short.
Johnson also confirmed that the Justice Society of America characters Hawkman, Dr. Fate, and Cyclone will be joining alongside previously confirmed Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo) in the film.
The Rock, while not confirming his appearance in the film, did hint that we could expect Superman to show up in Black Adam for an epic showdown. Henry Cavill is currently in talks to put back on the Superman suit and make a cameo in a future DC film. We won’t be shocked if Black Adam is that movie.
Shazam! was one of the biggest surprises of 2019, bringing in $ 159.1 million around the world when it first opened, so it’s no surprise there is a sequel coming. In a panel led by the film’s star Zachary Levi and later joined by the rest of the cast from the first film Asher Angel, Meagan Good, Jack Dylan Grazer, Faithe Herman, Adam Brody, and director David F. Sandberg we got more details about the upcoming follow-up.
We learned that actor/comedian Sinbad who many believed was supposed to be in the first film, will NOW be in the sequel. The title of the film was also revealed when Herman “drew” it on a poster.
Outside of that news, Levi and the cast were very tight-lipped about details surrounding Shazam!: Fury of The Gods

Outside of teaser images, Matt Reeves’ The Batman was shrouded in mystery, until today. Following a discussion with Aisha Tyler talking about his upcoming film that stars Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader, we finally got to see a trailer. Before he let the footage go, Reeves explained that only 25% of the film is complete, but trust us when we say that the 2-minute trailer does its job in building intrigue for the film.
In it, we see a young Bruce Wayne growing into his night job as The Batman while having to deal with The Riddler, who is also in the beginning stages of his criminal career. Jeffrey Wright’s Commissioner Gordon, Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman, and a voice-over from Andy Serkis as Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler, Alfred appear in the trailer. Oh, of course, we get a glimpse of the new Batmobile as well as Batman in action, and we can’t front Mr. Twilight, Robert Pattinson gets very busy.
The Batman is slated to arrive in theaters on October 1, 2021. You can peep the first trailer below.

It’s happening, it’s really happening. PlayStation has confirmed that the long-rumored PS5 June event will take place.
Next week Sony will be giving eager gamers a “look at the future of gaming,” the company announced on both Twitter and its official blog. President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, gave PlayStation fans something to look forward to saying, “The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe.”
Ryan also pointed out in the statement that the games will come from studios “newer and older,” “larger and smaller,” and will “showcase the potential of the hardware.”
He further added that the lack of physical events due to COVID-19 gives his company an “amazing opportunity to think differently,” while also promising it will bring gamers “closer than ever before.” While there is no clear indication that we will get to see the PS5 console, he made sure to point out that the upcoming event “is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.”
So it’s evident that Sony will be stretching this out till the PS5’s holiday 2020 release.
Upended by the coronavirus outbreak, Fira de Barcelona, the organizer of Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week revealed Friday it is further postponing the dates of its upcoming trade show and collateral events.
In sync with other international fashion events, organizers added that the bridalwear fair will combine the physical event with a number of digital initiatives, in order to maximize its exhibitors’ business opportunities.
Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week – which was originally slated to take place in April and subsequently moved to June 8 to 14 – will now be held Sept. 4 to 10. The decision comes after the Spanish government announced early Friday that travel restrictions to the country have been pushed ahead to June 15.
Exhibitors will be able to take part in the showcase physically or leverage a digital platform provided by Fira de Barcelona to present their latest bridal collections. Described as a “flexible hybrid model,” the new format is aimed at securing attendance by international buyers, media outlets and influencers, who might not be able to travel.
“The international bridal fashion event returns, innovating and transforming itself to support an industry that needs to resume its commercial activity. In this regard, holding the event is a means, which is

This week in sustainability, events and themes are reworked in the wake of coronavirus, spurring special changes for sustainability-themed organizers.
COPENHAGEN FASHION SUMMIT: The annual sustainable fashion summit, which was postponed due to the coronavirus, has set Oct. 12 to 13 as the new dates and an updated theme: “Redesigning Value.”
“The summit will address fashion’s new reality,” said a statement from Global Fashion Agenda, the organizing group. The event will “navigate the current and future realities facing our industry,” with the pandemic prompting how to reorient sustainable business practices to a business’ core for greater resiliency.
An advocate for an industry reset, Eva Kruse, chief executive officer of Global Fashion Agenda, said: “This crisis has forced a quarantine on the world and by extension a quarantine on consumption, raising the question of how this will impact the fashion landscape in the aftermath.”
Copenhagen Fashion Summit announces new theme.
SUSTAINABLE FASHION FORUM: With Earth Day spilling out into a week or perhaps greening the whole month of April, Sustainable Fashion Forum pivots its IRL conference into its first virtual conference to be held on April 25.

Have you ever noticed the guys who love to dole out style advice are often the ones that actually need some themselves? The guys with the real knowledge don’t feel the need to evangelize about how to get great style—you have to ask. That’s exactly what we did when we saw designer Billy Reid backstage at his Spring/Summer 2020 runway shot in Florence, AL, the location of his flagship store and his annual food and music festival, the Shindig.
Reid’s aesthetic—a mix of laid-back Southern roots and sharp New York sensibility—blends loose silhouettes, intricate patterns, and cool, neutral hues. It’s a style that’s born of inspiration and necessity.
“I’ve spent my whole career traveling to New York, Alabama—everywhere,” says Reid. “So I only keep things in my closet that fit me well and will outlast trends.”
Read on for Reid’s tips on building a closet, looking slimmer, and the one thing you should always do before any dressed-up event.
Billy’s approach to his closet is the same as his collection: quality over quantity. “It’s better to have high-quality pieces that really fit you well than just a lot of clothes taking up space,” Reid says. When paring down his closet, he asks himself what he would take on a two-week trip if he had to pack right then. Anything that doesn’t fit that mold gets the axe.
“That leaves me with my favorite jeans, my navy blazer, some T-shirts, a suit, exercise clothes, and then some more laid-back items,” he says. “Essentially, I boil it down to just what I need.” Reid wears clothes largely in solid neutrals like navy, black, white, and gray—with some small dashes of color—because they always look great together and will always make for a timeless look.
Essentially, I boil it down to just what I need.
“Of course, you’ll still have that tux you wear once or twice a year, but those everyday essentials can take you a lot of places.”
If you have a massive closet, a good place to start is weeding out anything you haven’t worn for the past year. Then you can start assembling the pieces you definitely want to keep by using Reid’s method.
A tie bar or a pocket square can add some panache to your look and show off your personal style. However, wear them along with suspenders, a pocket square, a lapel pin, and a chain wallet, and you’ll come across as trying too hard.
“I love accessories,” Reid says. “I think men need them. But stick with just one.”
For example, if you’re wearing a sport coat, adding a pocket square can be a bold statement by itself. The temptation could be to combine it with other pieces, but Billy says the right way to nail the look is to commit to just one accessory and own it.
“You don’t need that extra lapel pin—unless you’re a senator.”
If you’ve ever pulled out a jacket or suit before a wedding or ceremony only to find that it doesn’t fit well or isn’t tailored correctly, you probably learned this trick the hard way. Reid suggests that before any notable event—or any time you need to look your best—to wear your planned outfit well in advance.
“When Sean Connery landed the role as 007, he knew he’d be wearing one gray suit a lot, so for weeks before filming he wore it every day. Apparently he even slept in it,” Reid says. “That’s why he looked so relaxed and confident in the film.”
To that end, Reid outfitted Daniel Craig with his iconic peacoats for Skyfall and made the delivery weeks early so Craig could live in them before filming.
Wear-testing will also help you realize if the finer tailoring details—cuffs, hems, length—need tweaking. Shoot to have your look three weeks before the big event and wear it at least twice so your look will say you know how to own a room.
Less Fabric is More Flattering
Tailoring is a specialty of Reid’s, and he knows how the right cut can make you look fit—or fat. To trim down your silhouette, he suggests using less fabric whenever possible. For tops, this means band collars for formal events and Henleys for something more casual.
“Removing a collar makes your neck look longer and creates a slimming effect,” he says. “It’s a trick women use often, but it can be translated into menswear, too.”
The same goes for your pant width. A baggier fit—unless that’s the intended effect—can make your bottom half look heavy, especially in photos.
“On ESPN, the sportscasters often wear slimmer-cut pants that are cut like jeans, because they want that slimmer leg.”
Achieve this same look by opting for slim-fit pants—even on bigger guys. Having no more than 2 to 3 inches of excess fabric at your leg when standing is the perfect way to make your overall shape look slimmer in a flash.
I love accessories. I think men need them. But stick with just one.
Mind Your Proportions
Just as the width of your clothes is essential, so is the length.
“Wearing a jacket that’s too long can weigh you down,” Reid says.
It’s essential to find your own just-right jacket length to even out your proportions. Reid wears his jacket a bit shorter than a typical off-the-rack jacket in his size, but it took him a while to figure out what worked best for him.
The old-school trick is to cup your fingers against your palms to find the spot where your jacket should hit. “It’s not so scientific, but it’ll give you a feel for what’s right.”
For the best results, Reid recommends working with your tailor to experiment with different lengths and find the one that’s right for you.
“Once you train your mind to see the small differences, you’ll start noticing it with all your clothes, and you’ll look better for it.”

E3 2019 doesn’t officially begin until Sunday (Jun. 9), but that didn’t stop EA from kicking things off with its EA Play event. Serving as the unofficial kickoff to the annual video game convention, the company decided to show off some gameplay footage of Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and it looks very promising.

Could this be the Star Wars single player action game we have been waiting for?
About a month ago a reveal trailer dropped for the long-rumored game but didn’t give much detail only showing off the titles main character and glimpses of cut scenes pretty much detailing exactly where the game will take place in the legendary Star Wars canon. In the game, you take on the role of a young Padawan named Cal Kestis played by Cameron Monaghan (Shameless, Gotham). He has not reached his full Jedi potential having to go into hiding after surviving the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith following when then Supreme Chancellor Palpatine’s kicked into motion his plan to eliminate all Jedi through his secret order 66 decree. Ushering in the rise of the Galactic Empire who are secretly being led by the Jedi Order’s ancient enemy the Sith.
Today (Jun 8) during its EA Play conference, EA and Respawn treated Star Wars fans to fifteen whole minutes of gameplay action and for the most part, the game looks solid at first glance. Based on the footage Jedi: Fallen Order seems like a much-improved version of Lucas Arts Star Wars: The Force Unleashed which was the last single player adventure we got from related to the now Disney owned franchise. The combat system looks very crisp as the expert player seamlessly switched between using his lightsaber and forces skills.
It also seems to have some adventure game aspects as well, like climbing that we have come to experience in games like Uncharted, for example. While it is not “open world,” Respawn says the game does have some Metroid/Castlevania qualities and will allow players to “explore” the environments as they guide Kestis on his journey. Outside of EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront franchise, fans have been yearning for a long time for an adventure game. Looks like their prayers have been answered by Respawn with this latest entry that is set to arrive for November 15th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin Access.
Check out the game in action below and let us know in the comment section below Star Wars Jed: Fallen Order has landed on your list as a title you have to add to your video game collection.

Today (June 4), led by Tim Cook, Apple held their annual WWDC event, and the focus was entirely on improving the performance of their products with iOS 12, watchOS 5, macOS Mojave and Apple TV. We break down the best highlights from the highlights from the event.
Apple’s software VP, Craig Federighi made it entirely clear to the attendees in the room that “for iOS 12, we are doubling down on performance.” Being that recent iOS updates have been very buggy lately this focus is warranted. There are definitely some new additions, changes, and improvements coming to your iPhone, IPads worth looking forward too.
Google introduced its digital well-being dashboard called Android P which wants to help users limit their phone use. Apple is aiming for the same with its new Screen Time feature which breaks down exactly how much you are using your iPhone and individual apps. Like Android P it will allow you to set a time limit for each app which will warn you when you are about hit your time limit and hit you with a “time’s up” message once the timer runs out.
If you always wanted to be able to facetime more than just one friend at one time the good folks at Apple have heard your cry. Thanks to iOS 12, you can now start a Facetime session that will feature up to 32 people. Now why you would want to be a part of a group text but with video is beyond us. We can see this feature being beneficial for conference calls maybe.
Apple is taking another page out of Google’s book with how iOS 12 will handle and store your photos. iOS 12 will now offer search suggestions, filter and effect suggestions as well as suggesting which friends to share the photo with. Honestly, something you similarly experience if you utilize Google Photo’s app BUT if you don’t want to download a Google on your iPhone (there are people like this) this update is for you.

(AllHipHop News) It is just 2 days until Keith Murray and Fredro Starr finally face off one-on-one. While battle rap legends Murda Mook, Loaded Lux, and Hollow Da Don have all stated they are looking forward to seeing Murray go against Starr this weekend, one of their battle rap peers is challenging the two Hip Hop veterans to step in the ring against him.
MC WAR caught up with Cortez to get his opinion on Murray vs Starr. The New Yorker made it clear he wants to take down both men.
“You wanna know what I think about that battle? I will kill both them n*ggas,” declared Cortez. “Them n*ggas trying to come back and take shine off what the f*ck we built. I’ll go to the battle, and I will gladly battle both them n*ggas this Sunday.”
Will Cortez really run up in Brooklyn’s Milk River to take on Murray and Starr? Fans will have to wait until October 4 to find out.
To see MC WAR’s “Generation X” event in person purchase tickets at mcwar.com. If you can’t make it to NYC on Sunday, watch the showcase live on AllHipHop.com at 10 pm.
Known for sweeping orchestral arrangements and blistering live shows, the Airborne Toxic Event burst onto the scene with their song "Sometime Around Midnight," which was voted iTunes' #1 Alternative Song of 2008 and reached #4 on the US Alternative Chart. Counting U2 among its fans, the band has built up a passionate fan base with its epic, string-laden music and extraordinary live performances. Live from Walt Disney Concert Hall is a documentary film chronicling the lead-up to the last of 354 shows in support of the the group's debut album. To mark the occasion, they were joined onstage by a variety of performers, including a world-class string quartet, a children’s choir, a high school marching band, horn players, visual artists, and Mexican folkórico dancers. In addition to never-before-recorded new tracks and cover versions of songs by the Ramones, the Magnetic Fields, and Q Lazzarus, the concert film offers an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at the exhaustive rehearsals and preparation that went into putting on the show at the world-famous, Frank Gehry-designed venue, home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
(AllHipHop News) Battle rap royalty will be on hand at the upcoming Keith Murray vs Fredro Starr lyrical contest. After it was announced Murda Mook will be on the stage that night, fellow legendary battler Loaded Lux has been named as a host of MC War’s “Generation X” as well.
In an exclusive interview, Lux was asked for his thoughts on the two veteran song makers’ decision to step into the battle arena. The Harlem native offered some advice to Murray and Starr by reminding them that things did not turn out well when another “industry rapper” went up against a professional battle rapper unprepared.
“I know what they do over them beats and that music, but listen man – I tell people the battle game’s like the fight game. You gotta come ready to work,” says Lux. “If you’re playing and you ain’t prepared, then it’s gonna show. You see what happened when Canibus tried to come through.”
The Keith Murray versus Fredro Starr battle is scheduled for October 4 at Brooklyn’s Milk River. Tickets are available at mcwars.com. AllHipHop.com will also broadcast the event live.
“If you can laugh, laugh. You cannot take your life so seriously, even though this is the most serious thing that could possibly happen to you,” said ‘Workaholics’ actress Jillian Bell, who came out to support the cause.

Samsung has repeatedly told you that “The Next Big Thing” is already here and the prestigious company is set to release the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 on August 21 to live together in technological matrimony.
Last night (August 18), West Hollywood was transformed into a star-studded celebration for plenty of Samsung ambassadors ahead of the new product rollout.
DJ M.O.S. warmed up the crowd with Hip-Hop freshness from new and old as Chrissy Teigen (fresh off her viral ad), Jamie Foxx, Tyrese, Russell Simmons, Wesley Snipes, Demi Levato, apl.de.ap and Aldis Hodge (coming Straight Outta Compton), among others enjoyed an open bar and the atmosphere.
Elsewhere, technical newlyweds Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade treated their Los Angeles rendezvous like a date night and planned an one-year anniversary vacation.
Midway through the night, A$ AP Rocky–alongside A$ AP Twelvy–took the center stage for a surprise performance and ran through three albums worth of material with hits like “M’s”, “Wassup”, “Goldie”, “Electric Body” and “Everyday.” Seeing that power of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ was at his disposal, he allowed fans to use the phone to choose his swan song. Of course they chose his “favorite” track, “F**king Problems.”
Check out the sights and scenes from the actual “Next Big Thing” party down below. For more information on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5, visit their official website.

I have often said that training your kid for the Olympics is a form of child abuse because it is such a waste of time and talent. Especially if you don’t win. Training for the Olympics is a good example of not following the odds.
But apparently things CAN get worse, at least for the athletes that will be swimming in the rivers in Rio that are equal parts poop and water.
If your firewall is blocking the image, see it on Twitter here.
I have this image of the TV network that covers the Olympics going to commercial break, everyone in Rio uses the bathroom, and the simultaneous flushing causes a river wave that sweeps the competitors out to the ocean.
I want this camera mounted on the bottom of a drone. And I want to watch the video it produces in a round room that is surrounded by those new curved TVs, as if I am sitting in a cockpit of a moving aircraft. That way I can take a tour all around Paris, for example, steering as I please.
That’s how I want to travel.
In the long run, that’s also how I want to learn. I want to be immersed in a topic via CGI and video. I want to be on the battlefield with Napolean. I want to watch evolution in fast-forward as if viewed from a time machine. I want to learn math by being inside it. In other words, I want an immersive learning room along with lots of content.

As details from the Chattanooga reserve center shooting in Tennesseecontinue to develop, authorities say the event has come to a violent end. The shooting took place at a Navy Reserve center and a military recruiting center in two separate instances, and the investigation to discover why the shooter opened fired is underway.
Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke is set to address residents of the city regarding what is known about the unnamed Chattanooga shooter according to CNN, NBC News, and ABC News. The shooting was said to have taken place just before 11:00 a.m. local time, although much of this is still speculative.
Around 1:15 p.m. local time, the gunman was taken down, thus putting an end to the harrowing situation although there were some injuries. Reports say that at least two marines and one police officer are among the shooting victims after the gunman fired an unofficial 25-30 rounds at the two facilities.
At least three people — two Marines and one police officer — were injured in a shooting today in Chattanooga, Tennessee, according to law enforcement officials.
The shooter has not been identified but is believed to be dead after being neutralized and it is no longer an active shooter situation, sources told ABC News.
There were two scenes of the shooting — one at a Naval Operation Support Center and an Armed Forces Recruiting Center that houses an Army and Marine recruiting office — though all of the injuries are believed to have occurred at the Naval Operation Support Center, according to federal officials.
There are rumors that some Marines working at the Navy reserve center may have been killed, but we caution that these are largely unconfirmed reports.
We will update this post with new information as soon as we can.
