The Hermès/Apple collaboration is the tech company’s first foray into high fashion. While the iWatch itself was met with a lukewarm reaction from the fashion community, the Apple Watch Hermès was much better received. And why wouldn’t it be? Traditional and tech are juxtaposed with its beautifully crafted leather strap, Hermès watch face and the iWatch hardware. This is one fashion tech collaboration that’s topping every techie’s wishlist.

Here’s a way to update your iPad that has nothing to do with software: pop it in a Christian Louboutin studded case.

If there’s one thing that is never pretty, it is surely the trusty USB stick. Except Beyond Object have somehow made it so.

The minimalist design is in stark contrast to the chunky, ugly USBs we’ve become accustomed to using everyday. It’s almost enough to get us excited about our office errands.

  1. Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends.
    You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.

  2. CCbuscompany says:

    Travel is the only context in which some people ever look around. If we spent half the energy looking at our own neighborhoods, we'd probably learn twice as much.

  3. The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.

  4. It’s funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think, ‘I want to go home.’ But then you come home, and of course it’s not the same. You can’t live with it, you can’t live away from it. And it seems like from then on there’s always this yearning for some place that doesn’t exist. I felt that. Still do. I’m never completely at home anywhere.

  5. A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.
