A Look at Google’s Nexus 6

Leaking today is what seems to be an official product render of the Nexus 6. Consensus is that Google had Motorola build a really big Moto X. The image was published by @evleaks and features the device running the upcoming Android L. The device’s metal band appears to have a slate or blueish color, which could help differentiate it ever so slightly from Motorola’s regular flagship.

The phone is rumored to be very big featuring a 5.92-inch display and some placement changes. Take a look at the full image below:
 

Colin Kaepernick tapes over Beats logo to satisfy NFL and Bose #Beatsbytape

Beats by Tape are the new headphones in town. Not really, but San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick didnt want to get another 10K fine like he did last week. Bos is the official headphone sponsor for the NFL which clashes with Colin Kaepernick who has an endorsement deal with Beats.

This is one clever way to get around the requirement.

Colin Kaepernick is wearing the pink Beats by Dre with tape covering the logo. He was fined $10K last week. He is appealing.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg donates $25 million to fight spread of Ebola

Zuckerberg announced on his Facebook page earlier today that he and his wife Priscilla Chan, a physician, have made a $25 million donation to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn’t spread further and become a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio,” Zuckerberg wrote, explaining his motivation for the unexpected donation.

The money is only a fraction of the $1 billion that the World Health Organizationsays is necessary to halt the further spread of the disease, but is still a significant amount of money to come from individual donors. Zuckerberg and Chan’s donation follows other large donations made by tech magnates, including a $50 million donation from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and a $9 million donation from Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen. Chan and Zuckerberg have previously contributed multimillions to other charitable endeavors, including schools in the San Francisco Bay area and in New Jersey.

Read the Full statement here:

Priscilla and I are donating $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to help fight Ebola.

The Ebola epidemic is at a critical turning point. It has infected 8,400 people so far, but it is spreading very quickly and projections suggest it could infect 1 million people or more over the next several months if not addressed.

We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn’t spread further and become a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio.

We believe our grant is the quickest way to empower the CDC and the experts in this field to prevent this outcome.

Grants like this directly help the frontline responders in their heroic work. These people are on the ground setting up care centers, training local staff, identifying Ebola cases and much more.

We are hopeful this will help save lives and get this outbreak under control.

Party Supplies “The Light in the Addict” Featuring Action Bronson and Black Atlas

Party Supplies burst out of the gate swinging with the one-two punch of debut album Tough Love and the beloved mixtapes, establishing a signature sound that mixes woozy classic rock chops with head-nodding MPC hip-hop like none other. They ride that vibe even further into the sunset on jammy new song “The Light In The Addict,” featuring guest vocals from collaborator Action Bronson and PS’ Fool’s Gold label mate Black Atlass.

Party Supplies and Action first performed the song live last week at the Sonos Studio showcase in NYC (with PS frontman Justin Nealis clad in jogging shorts and a David Lee Roth tee while Bronson sported a Brazilian flag doo rag) and now you can hear the collaboration exclusively on Soundcloud courtesy of Sonos.

Fool’s Gold will re-release Party Supplies debut LP Tough Love on limited edition vinyl and CD 11/25 at www.store.foolsgoldrecs.com and select record stores worldwide.

Party Supplies will be DJing at Good Life in Boston (28 Kingston St) with Sammy Bananas this Saturday, 10/11.
