Outdoor Voices’ president, the Nike vet brought in this year to drive growth, is already gone, @lapresmidi reports. And Mickey Drexler is stepping down as chairman. The OV brand still feels relevant. But is it moving fast enough?
A new Matrix film is exciting in itself, but would be most impressed if it could be even a fraction as groundbreaking from a production standpoint as the original. Hard to stress 20 years later just how jaw-droppingly high-tech it seemed.
It makes sense that home appliances will increasingly have software and connectivity. But they need to be *safer* than analog predecessors. Absolutely the wrong move to blame users for accidental misuse. Learn with humility and fix.
Smart to see Twitter testing the interest graph, which adds even more serendipity and discovery into the timeline, even if it took more than half a decade after a startup called Sulia built an entire service around the idea.
Love that Nike skunkworks-ed its kids Shoe subscription service for TWO YEARS under a different name, signing up customers w/ Facebook ads. Suspiciously clever for a big company.
Imagine the smart speaker technology capabilities from a cable company that says it could take them up to two months to change the name on my account.
