The rumors are flying here and there like crazy. The AppleiPhone 5S is going to sport a gold/champagne look. Until now Apple had given only two choices: black and white. While quite boring this was ultra-modern too. Gold though is a bit more flashy and suggestive of lots of conspicuous consumption. It has been said that this particular choice of color would be more popular in China and India rather than in the West. However, if you take a closer look at the iPhone5S, you will see that it has more of a light golden champagne sheen rather than a proper gaudy gold exterior. The gold treatment is an attempt at attracting consumers in nascent markets.
The gilded treatment given to this phone mimics the gold watches and neck-chains worn by rap stars. It is in short a celebration of jewelry and the rich and famous who display it in a show of vanity. Apple will however need to give some solid reasons in its ads to back up this edition. It already has the alibi of high class social status to bolster the gold/champagne version. Early September is the season set for the launch of the “Goldfinger” phone. Like James Bond’s movie, this technological temptress by Apple too is totally immersed in a coating of a golden hue.
Cam Newton Not Distracted by Greg Hardy Case
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton told ESPN on Sept. 18 the ongoing controversy involving teammate and defensive end Greg Hardy -- who is involved in a domestic violence case -- won't serve as a distraction for the upcoming Sept. 21 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
