Drone Shadow, #006, in Brixton, London by James Bridle
Back in December, James Bridle accompanied the premiere of Jeremy Scahill’s investigative documentary Dirty Wars, hence extending his own investigative approach of discovery and distribution of displays of drone attacks as @dronestagram on twitter and via tumblr, and taking it to the streets as street art.

Tim Cook was more contained and less breathing his famous words (amazing, best, better) up your neck in a Jack Palance (Ripley’s Believe It or Not™) kind of way. He was almost bearable. 250 million sold iPads.
iOS and now also OS X UID is less brilliant then expected. The candy colours back then when the candy coloured iMac launched made John C Dvorcak announce: „You won’t get me to cross the street with the candy coloured laptop”

Trust is the new black
If trust were bottled as wine, the vintages of recent years would be bitter—and scarce. The global financial crisis. Scandals in business, politics and religion. Environmental disasters, widening economic disparities and unrest. The social contract as we know it has been broken; mistrust of corporations, governments and media is rampant. Weary of misinformation, people are reappraising their relationships with companies and brands, making integrity a new form of competitive advantage.
In a marketing sense, trust seems very basic and not very innovative. But the fundamentals of a customer’s experience—across product performance, innovation, customer service and perceived quality—all ladder up to trust. More important than ever to building brand equity and differentiation, trust has become a precious commodity, and its limited supply in the marketplace has stimulated consumer demand.
Mr. Ed mushed up Daniel Clowes’ “Ghost World” with Hanna Barbera’s „Scooby-Doo‟. That’s exactly what I envision the new hhg-single release to be like
“Jävla Kärlekssång”. What is the artist trying to tell us? Mysterious world of pop holds no mysteries. All the thoughtful songs offer no fresh thinking. U2 sucks with the worst of all songs, the pep songs.
