  4. The Apple Park campus has been a work in the making for the past eight years. It's the last major project Jonathan Ive, Apple's chief designer, worked on with Apple found Steve Jobs before Jobs' death in 2011. Wall Street Journal recently linked up with Ive for a tour of the campus, where Ive revealed that he was nervous about how the campus will be received by the public. "There's the same rather strange process you go through when you finish a product and you prepare to release it – it's the same set of feelings," he said. "That feels encouragingly healthy, because I would be concerned if we lost that sense of anxiety. I think that would suggest that we were not as self-critical, not as curious, not as inquisitive as we have to be able to be effective and do good work." Ive and his team will become one of the last groups of employees to move into the new building. Relocation began in April, even though construction of the building was not yet completed. Designed by architecture firm Foster + Partners, the building is furnished with custom pieces by Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. The main 2.5 million-square-foot structure rests among 175 acres of green land. Employees get around on 2,000 bikes painted "Apple grey," electric golf carts as well as shuttle busses.

  5. While many believe it to be all but inevitable, Apple up to now, has yet to announce plans for creating a touchscreen MacBook Air. However, Neonode have decidedly taken matters into its own hands by creating the revolutionary AirBar. The nifty device latches on directly beneath the display through a set of magnets — deriving its power when plugged into the USB port. The strip then emits infrared signals, which is used to accurately track finger placement and movements. Aside from dragging, drawing, tapping, pinching, rotating and zooming through human touch, the enabled screen is also sensitive to paint brushes as well. Retailing for a price of $99 USD, the AirBar is available now via the brand’s online shop. In other tech-related news, Apple will get rid of the iPod Nano and Shuffle.

  7. As was reported earlier this week, Elon Musk delivered through on his promise to hand over the first 30 Tesla Model 3s during a live stream event that took place in Fremont, California. With the momentous ceremony officially in the record books, focus now has been shifted towards amping up production. Divulged by Musk himself, the company plans to produce 100 units in the month of August, while cranking that number up to 1,500 in September. If all goes according to plan, producing 20,000 cars by the end of the year will be well within its grasp. Unlike some of Tesla’s past creations, the Model 3 has been pegged as the electric automobile for the everyday consumer and will be expected to hover around the $35,000 USD mark. While speculation runs rampant regarding special customization packages and extra battery upgrades, Tesla has confirmed a set of features following a leaked internal company document. Noteworthy traits include hitting 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, top speeds of 30MPH, 220-mile range, 15 cubic feet of cargo storage, amongst others. A key characteristic lies within its auto pilot mode. According to the company, an extra $5,000 will enable the following, "Match speed to traffic conditions, keep within a lane, automatically change lanes, transition from one freeway to another, exit the freeway and self-park at your destination.” For the time being, scroll through the gallery above and be sure to check back for updates.

  8. Looks like the feud between Shaquille O'Neal and LaVar Ball is heating up once again. Back in May, former Lakers center and NBA Hall-of-Famer Shaq called out LaVar Ball and Big Baller Brand for unveiling a $495 USD signature shoe for new Lakers star and eldest of the Ball sons, Lonzo. Papa Ball then fought back stating his younger son LaMelo Ball, would "kill" O'Neal and his son, Shareef O'Neal, in a game of two-on-two. Now Shaq is back having just released a diss track set over a JAY-Z beat. Thanks to TMZ for providing the audio, listeners can hear O'Neal throwing shade at the proprietor of the Big Baller Brand. Listen to the full track above, where Shaq throws down some serious bars. "First you can beat Mike, then you can beat me. Wake that ass up, you havin’ a dream. You’ve done a great job, I love how your sons play. And lil ‘Melo too, attitude hella cool. Jumper wet wet like two thots in a pool." Read more at Hypebeast.com View the full article

  11. Mike D's Malibu beach house used to be a group of buildings that included a three-bedroom house and a few cottages for the guests. Instead of tearing the buildings down and rebuilding his own beach house, the Beastie Boy turned the collection of buildings into a single residence. Of course, he made a few major adjustmens: the roof was replaced with a modern standing metal and the white board-and-batten facade was rebuilt. With the help of a professional, Mike D was involved in the interior design process. Check out the photos of his Malibu beach house above.
