#AppleMusic won't save the music industry because, unlike +Spotify​, Apple is selling iPhones not streaming music.

Apple makes more profit in a quarter than the entire US music industry does in a year.

As +Nilay Patel​ says, 'Spotify has to invent an entirely new business model, but Apple just has to make listening to music marginally easier. The entire music industry, turned into just another feature of the iPhone.'

Apple spent a lot of time at WWDC heaping praise on developers — the middle point of the keynote featured a video celebrating all of the apps and experiences enabled by the iPhone and the App Store...

The Apple Watch has been out for over two months now, and other modern smartwatches well before that. It’s no longer the stuff of sci-fi to consider using your watch to play music, control your TV,...

Well #MadMax: #FuryRoad was a bit of fun. But it was totally ridiculous with plot holes big enough to drive a truck through. See what I did there?

The larey cockatoo wall paper sets the tone for what to expect inside—a boho basement filled and a menagerie of loud-shirt-wearing bar guys, a tight drinks menu and toilets that have taken small space architecture very seriously.

Nuri's is a must if you are in Ubud. But the BBQ and the Indonesian menus serve super tasty meals. Totally recommend the chicken and beef burgers but if it's your first time you gotta get the ribs! And if you are lucky they will call you, 'Darling' (which isn't how everyone is greeted apparently!)

Finding good food in Kings Cross and Potts Point is difficult. Finding good coffee is much harder. When Glider opened that got a lot easier. The breakfast menu features much you would expect, but there are a few Glider-specific items worth exploring. Try the banana, peanut butter and blue gum honey toast or the sticky rice with honeydew and mango. Declaring itself an espresso bar and an Asian eat house, not only will you get a great coffee, there's an exciting contemporary Asian menu to dine from. Come lunch you can get banana blossoms and duck salad, green papaya and prawn salad or a 'glider' burger of Peking duck on brioche. Get in early if you want one of their duck rice paper rolls, they go quick!
