Taylor Swift has an incredibly insightful perspective into the terrible crime Apple is perpetrating on the music industry with its new service. Don't pay any musicians for three months of their music plays? Sounds like something a really poor company might do, not Apple.
 
Good read on Taylor Swift calling bullshit on the free music trials.

App and music publishing platforms giving stuff away through promotions (free apps of the day, etc) are taking advantage of artists/developers to their own benefit.

Despite what they may tell you, "exposure" does not pay the bills.

We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.

A great bit of insight into how Google slowly, but finally, has learned how to make well designed interfaces across all the devices.
 
Thanks +Cliff Kuang for helping tell our stories!
Google's transformation into a company that creates beautiful software is the story of how tech itself has evolved in the mobile era.

Big news from Google, especially if you're like me and only sign up for T-Mobile for a month to use their cheap international data when you're traveling abroad. Not so great coverage in rural areas of the US, but will be the cheapest US service to use for data and included calls/texts.
Carriers need to look like this in the future.

78% of Americans think it's a serious problem for America if nothing is done on climate change.
83% of Americans think it's a serious problem for the World if nothing is done on climate change.
67% of Americans are less likely to vote for a candidate that thinks climate change is a hoax.
While Americans know climate change isn't going to help them, they have no idea if it will hurt them either.

My guess - this lack of personal connection is why we aren't getting things done yet.

Most Americans Support Government Action on Climate Change, Poll Finds http://nyti.ms/1yTLzjv

An overwhelming majority of the American public, including nearly half of Republicans, support government action to curb global warming, according to a poll conducted by The New York Times, Stanford University and the nonpartisan environmental research group Resources for the Future.

In a finding that could have implications for the 2016 presidential campaign, the poll also found that two-thirds of Americans say they are more likely to vote for political candidates who campaign on fighting climate change. They are less likely to vote for candidates who question or deny the science of human-caused global warming.

To be fair in relation to the Taylor Swift letter posted the other day, here's a piece detailing how hypocritical her statement to Apple was: http://petapixel.com/2015/06/22/an-open-response-to-taylor-swifts-rant-against-apple/
Dear Taylor Swift, I have read your open letter to Apple where you give your reasons for refusing to allow your album ‘1989′ to be included on their forthc

Nice little write-up on a new place along a cool part of Regent St. here in Madison. The guy brewing for the place is going to be pretty awesome there, too.

This should be an interesting watch. Saving for myself (and others!) for later.
 
This is how we sour our beers

Did you know? Snapshot & La Folie are tart beers w/ different souring processes. Hit the link to watch a new video featuring microbiologist Kelly Tretter and wood cellar blender Lauren Salazar, filmed inside one of our labs. http://find.beer/Ofk3Z

Sling TV arrives today. Channel options are good, but not quite what I need in terms of sports (especially NBCSN and Fox Sports) quite yet. Soon, though, I'll be sharpening my cable-cutting scissors in the meantime.
 
In addition to live programming from major cable networks, Sling TV also provides on-demand movie rentals.

Impressive votes. #climatechange
 
The Senate makes it official: Climate change is not a hoax

The U.S. Senate has made it official: Climate change is not a hoax.

As part of the long debate on the Keystone XL pipeline, the Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday for an amendment that aimed to answer once and for all whether senators believe the climate is changing.

If the wording on the bill hasn't changed since I last looked, they agreed climate change is real but they couldn't agree that man is influencing the climate.
