    Kanye West for GQ Magazine August 2014: Interview

    You got married a week ago. You’re the lead subject in practically every tabloid on the planet right now. Are you comfortable in that position, having that many eyes on you?
    That wasn’t my goal. My goal is just to be respected as a man…

    I am an arbiter of taste.

  3. Why Google should buy Dropbox: It has the potential to create a true Internet of You.

    offmysteez:

    I’ve started to think about this a lot. About which company should acquire Dropbox: Apple or Google and it’s becoming clear that it could make Google a fortune but can also bolster Apples iCloud.

    Carousel is a great app. Although you have to go into Dropbox to actually delete files, it’s a hassle at first but I feel it was perfectly placed to get you to return to Dropbox to become fully integrated and more comfortable with the platform. More transient users will use it more and users who simply set it and forget it will stay on the platform.

  4. "I said that once some man had been calling me a lot wanting to give me one,” Warhol wrote, “but I’d never called him back or something, and then the kid looked up and said, ‘Yeah, that was me. I’m Steve Jobs.’ And he looked so young like a college guy. …Then he gave me a lesson on drawing with it. It only comes in black and white now, but they’ll soon make it in color. …I felt so old and out of it with this whiz guy right there who’d helped invent it."

  5. Don’t Fuck Up the Culture

    It’s not about the product, it’s about the culture.

  8. Apple's Forthcoming "Healthbook" Software

    parislemon:

    An insanely detailed leak of Apple’s forthcoming Healthbook software (likely a part of iOS 8) by Mark Gurman:

    Each category of functionality is a card in the Healthbook. Cards are distinguished by a color, and the tabs can be arranged to fit user preferences. As can be seen in the above images, Healthbook has sections that can track data pertaining to bloodwork, heart rate, hydration, blood pressure, physical activity, nutrition, blood sugar, sleep, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and weight.

    The big question, as Gurman notes at the end, is which devices will supply the data to Healthbook? Certainly, the iPhone itself is one (especially the models with an M7 chip). And it sure sounds like some sort of forthcoming “iWatch" would be another. But given the scope of Healthbook, it also seems likely to me that Apple will allow third-party devices to work with the software. This being Apple, you can be sure such a list will be curated, at least at first.

    To that end, just remember that Tim Cook remains on Nike’s Board of Directors…
