Marissa's Tumblr: Geeking Out on the Logo

marissamayr:

So, tonight we unveiled the new Yahoo logo, concluding our 30 days of change.

We hadn’t updated our logo in 18 years. Our brand, as represented by the logo, has been valued at as much as ~$10 billion dollars. So, while it was time for a change, it’s not something we could do lightly.

Inman Twins, Doris Duke Heirs: The Poorest Rich Kids in the World | Culture News | Rolling Stone

Raised by two drug addicts with virtually unlimited wealth, Georgia and Patterson survived a gilded childhood that was also a horror story of Dickensian neglect and abuse. They were globe-trotting trust-fund babies who snorkeled in Fiji, owned a pet lion cub and considered it normal to bring loose diamonds to elementary school for show and tell. And yet they also spent their childhoods inhaling freebase fumes, locked in cellars and deadbolted into their bedrooms at night in the secluded Wyoming mountains and on their ancestral South Carolina plantation.

Actually strangely great study music…

Though its heyday is behind it, Polaroid is still trying to carve a space in the photography sector, and it’s hoping brick and mortar storefronts might do the trick.

Why I’m returning my iPad mini

parislemon:

Well, there’s the obvious headline click-bait we’ll all been waiting for.

But wait.

Why is Rocky Agrawal returning his iPad mini? To get an LTE version with more storage because he loves the device so much and wants to pay more for a better version. That’s not just a misleading headline, it’s some next-level trolling right there.

Sorry, Marco.

$188 to Build

Arik Hesseldahl for AllThingsD:

Previously known as iSuppli, and widely known for its so-called “teardown” analysis reports, IHS has just completed its teardown report on the Apple’s newest iteration of the tablet. The verdict: The base model, a Wi-Fi-only 16 gigabyte iPad mini, which sells for a starting retail price of $329, costs about $188 to build.

Why is Apple not selling the iPad mini at $199? This is why. That would be $11 of profit — and that’s not taking into account marketing, etc. That’s just not the game Apple plays.
