A Cool, Modern, High-Tech Cassette Player? Yes! Check Out The ‘Elbow’ (Video)

Are you kidding?!! The crazy ad that ends up making mad sense! Do you know anything about this Elbow cassette player? Well, the concept looks incredible! They really might ‘raise the cassette tape culture’ (per their web page tagline).

Elbow is a new cassette player design concept, dedicated to restoring the glory of a cassette tape. Currently in prototype stage. Elbow has been conceived and designed by audiovisual art organisation BrainMonk.

VERY cool tech. VERY cool gadgetry. Score for both all in one! Hope y’all heads have not thrown out all your cassettes yet.

Gary Vaynerchuk Talks To John Legend About Making Big Songs, Staying Humble And More (Video)

Gary Vaynerchuk, the serial entrepreneur and CEO/Founder of VaynerMedia, talks to the world-renown “All Of Me” singer (and lucky hubby to the HOTTIE Chrissy Teigen – see how HOT here). They speak on the paradigm shift in the music industry – from physical to digital, from middlemen-driven to artist-driven – John’s career-before-music job at Boston Consulting Group. In fact, they mention that they taped this interview in the building where BCG is currently headquartered!

Hear the story John about how John left the corporate world; choosing crooning over consulting. That feels RISKY, but freeing right?

(Had to break those ‘gold handcuffs’… Wow, that’s a powerful term!)

So much other good stuff in this episode of #AskGaryVee too. Watch!

Yes. All of that is hella cool. Watch!

Behind “The Breaks” (Ep. 7) [Video]

Somehow you gotta expect to hear ‘these are the breaks’ don’t you? Sway show instant pedigree to get the story behind the story in his opening talk-off. When it comes to industry insiders, he is no slouch. But he goes further, not just I-know-a-guy but putting us onto one of THE guys… Kevin Liles. If anyone can tell the story of a ‘Foray’ street music exec of the ’90s, best believe Def Jam Alum Liles can.

Sway talks with Kevin Liles of 300 Entertainment about how to build a record label, competing against other labels for an artist, and advice for sustaining a successful career in the music industry.

Wow! Afro-Barbadian, Russian-Norwegian… that’s the mix that brings a ridiculously sexy Melyssa Ford into being?? Score another point for world unity!

[I]nterview with Toronto, Canada based Hip-Hop Model, Vixen, Actress, Host Melyssa Ford, where you’ll hear about the importance of learning the business when it came to setting herself apart from the other vixens…

Mercedes-Benz Believes The Future Of Transportation Is In Vans (Video)

Sounds like what General Motors did with Saturn. A huge car-making corporation generating an innovative vehicle manufacturing process as a ‘startup’ that starts within. But Saturn was pretty much its own company. This Mercedes move is internal entreprenuership; bringing in and empowering intrapreneurs, so to speak.

Rarely before was there so much movement in the automotive industry. Mercedes-Benz Vans has founded a new department called Future Transportation in order to prepare for the challenges that are connected with that. Event reporter Markus Haubold visited the “think thank” to speak with managers and employees about the need and the opportunities of the cultural change as well as about new working methods and holistic solutions for the customers.

‘Sneaker Shopping’ With Shoe & Microphone Fiend Joey Bada$$ (Video)

His dream shoe might be the All Day I Dream About… ya know. But you gotta dream about a possible dream collaboration between Joey Bad and ADIDAS. If you are into the shoe game heavy, that is.

Joey Bada$$ goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Alumni in Brooklyn, and talks growing up as a Jordan head and the mix of sneakers with politics.

Interesting. Joey comments on the former First Daughter from last administration rocking a Pro Era tee. Then he comments on Under Armour’s honcho stumping for the current President, Donald Trump. Kinda makes Joey Bada$$ a two-term political pundit. When it comes to apparel maybe. Maybe.

Ha! Watch and learn a bit Joey’s aspirations (non-political, basketball), choices in kicks (including a possible pick for his pops) and more.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos Pilots The ‘Method-2’ Mech (Video)

South Korean robotics manufacturer Hankook Mirae Technology debuted its first prototype piloted mech, the Method-2.

Remember that sci-fi-come-to-life robot we posted on here a while back? Well, Jeff Bezos took it for a ride a few days back. And that’s big; as big as the movie monster bot (another demo reel of it above).

Pause: Who’s Jeff Bezos??? Oh, he runs Amazon. That all… BOOM! Like we said, BIG!

Building a movie bot is a project success. Getting rich folks excited about it? The business! Although military contracts would surely be expected to follow, Slate did some digging that revealed that they – maker Hankook Mirae Technology – ain’t ready yet (more here). Disaster relief and cleanup – that seems to be the ceiling for these mega man-driven machines. Not as sexy as a ‘War Machine’ (Marvel), but no small feat. And after the storm, when the help comes, best believe these will be welcomed like some of the hottest things walking!

CBS Sports Football Analyst & Former Executive Amy Trask Speaks On Former Raiders Owner Al Davis, Front Office Philosophies And More (Video)

Fix your offensive line first… Now that’s an exec (not an armchair QB, or some think-they-know-it-all) talking! Heed the words of Amy Trask. Because RAIDER NATION, and because she really makes sense. Of course, decades experience with the organization and Rich Eisen even having her on the show to talk about football, late owner Al Davis, various organizational strategies and more. Host Eisen plugs the book (“You Negotiate Like A Girl”), too, of course.

Fantastic discussion. Smart. You’ll feel informed and kind of part of the conversation. Watch.

(Watch her answer to Rich on the probability of a ‘Las Vegas’ Raiders though…)

The World’s First Food Delivery Robot Is Now Making Deliveries In Washington DC (Video)

Hey people. This is happening. They got ‘Wall E’ from the movies (well, it looks like it…anyway) delivering your food now. Get your hoagies & chips, you gyros or whatever brought to you by a robot. Convenience encapsulated in mobile tech form. Rolling your order right on over at a [relatively] speedy 4 miles per hour, programmed not to run into stuff and to arrive safe & secure (like “they’ll email you a code to unlock the delivery case when it arrives” secure) for you to enjoy.

Starship Technology (maker of the deilivery bot) has partnered with Postmates (online ordering company) to make this all happen. Starship says this whole thing is still in its infancy, but this baby is a live baby, baby.

The news story is embedded above. Footage of the robot at work appears after the jump.

NBA & Chicago Bulls Star Jimmy Butler Goes ‘Sneaker Shopping’ (Video)

C’mon son! You gotta know by know that sneakers is religion! For sneakerheads, it is not just ‘shopping’… it is spiritual, ritual, and to be done right!

Jimmy Butler goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Saint Alfred in Chicago and talks wearing Jordans to the White House, walking away from his Adidas deal, and playing basketball with Michael Jordan.

Dude, this dude wore sneakers to the White House to chit-chat with President Obama (and bless him with a pair).

Children As Young As Four Work 12 Hours A Day To Make Your Smartphone Work (Video)

Damn. And while the States stay distracted by whatever the f*ck the President is up to or not, and whether we care if Nicki will clap back at Remy or not, THIS deplorable despicable sh!t is going on. Watch above and read on… and prepare to get MAD!

‘Slavery is alive and well’ is no metaphor, people. We’re talking about miners in The Congo who are worked near death daily in unsafe conditions for nowhere-near-livable pay. And many of the miners are MINORS, some as young as four f*cking years old! All this to dig up as much cobalt as the developed world can buy to make smartphone and electric car batteries.

Regulate the mines? Yeah, right. Read more about the tragedy and challenges of this situation by following the link below.

Apis Cor Just 3D-Printed Its First Residential Home (Video)

“3D printer… I’ve heard of it… It can make some little stuff…”

“A house? In 24 hours? No way!”

Yep. Just some regular Russians’ comments on the modern construction miracle that Apis Cor has just pulled off. That company sought to partner with PIK Companies Group, Samsung Electronics, TechnoNICOL Corporation, Bitex Reibeputz Company and Fabrika Okon to make the tech and make the house happen. Once all was in place, in just a day’s time, with a huge on-site 3D printer, in Russia, a 400-square-foot home was built, at a cost of slightly over $10,000.

Watch, and be amazed. Crazy. Crazy COOL!

We’re Seeing More And Bigger Black Movies, But Are African Americans Making Any Real Gains In Hollywood? (Video)

Hmmm… did anyone see the Steve Harvey-esque goof on the announcement for “Moonlight” winning The Oscar? This ‘New Hollywood Diversity Report’ segment on Roland Martin’s show might put that mistake in a different light. It’s kind of like there’s less hate for Black people in Hollywood… Now they just aren’t really paying us much mind. No shots, no hate, just saying.

The fourth annual Hollywood Diversity Report is out, and while there has been some improvement, Black people are still trailing behind their white counterparts in many ways.

Elon Musk Is An Economic Advisor To President Trump? He’s Got Some Explaining (And Tweeting) To Do! [Video]

Well… real-life Tony Stark could very well have a point. We will see in short order if The Donald listens or says, “Elon Musk, you’re fired.”

Last December, Elon Musk joined Trump’s economic advisory council. But in light of all that has happened within Trump’s first two weeks in office, Musk’s new position has come under fire by some of Musk’s fans. So, on Super Bowl Sunday Musk took to Twitter to answer followers’ questions about everything from Tesla to Trump.

(That’s some quirked-out music though. Doesn’t help. Haha!)

Gary Vaynerchuk Talks Entrepreneurship, His Passion For Start-Ups And More (Video)

The man Gary Vee! On with The Breakfast Club… Kinda threw Bernie under the bus at the beginning, but we don’t have to agree on everything. You know, because America.

Wise words well spoken by Charlemagne’s favorite ‘corporate thug motivator’ on the effect of the recent election on entrepreneurship, the lonely life of entrepreneurs, realistic ideas to make money, his dream to buy the NY Jets, his admiration of rappers’ grind and more.
