Gadgets : Striiv Fusion Fitness Tracker Smartwatch

Gadgets : Striiv Fusion Fitness Tracker Smartwatch

The Striiv Fusion combines the capabilities of an activity tracker with the touchscreen and functionality of a smartwatch. While it's not the most beauteous of timepiece designs, at least the wristband is minimalist in space consumption and can help you with no-fail opening lines when you're hitting on girls at bars: "Hey baby, according to my Striiv Fusion activity monitor you're lookin' so good tonight that I walked 27 steps to come over here and talk to you."

Made of ion-hardened glass and an elastomer wristband for durability, Striiv Fusion tracks physical activity and sleep patterns, plus, unlike UPs, Fuelbands, and Fitbits, displays important phone notifications. Specific tracking data and feedback data includes:

Physical Activity: steps taken; calories burned; distance traveled; active minutes.
Sleep Monitoring: sleep quality and duration; silent vibrating alarm function. The touchscreen is also removable from its band.
Smartwatch Alerts: Text messages; emails; incoming calls; Twitter and Facebook alerts.

The Striiv Fusion activity tracker and smartwatch is compatible with Android 4.3 and later and iOS 7 and later only.

Pearls : Rihanna

"When you realize who you live for, and who's important to please, a lot of people will actually start living. I am never going to get caught up in that. I'm gonna look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it - and I lived it for me."

Who is Rihanna?
Robyn Rihanna Fenty (born February 20, 1988), known by her stage name Rihanna, is a Barbadian recording artist, actress, and fashion designer. She was born in Saint Michael, Barbados, and her career began when she met record producer Evan Rogers through mutual friends in late 2003 and recorded demo tapes under Rogers's guidance. Her demo tape was sent to several record labels, and she subsequently signed a contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its president, rapper Jay-Z. Her debut album, Music of the Sun (2005) and its follow-up A Girl Like Me (2006) both peaked in the top ten on the Billboard 200 chart. The albums spawned the Billboard Hot 100 top two hit single "Pon de Replay" and her first Hot 100 number-one "SOS".

Her third studio album, Good Girl Gone Bad (2007), and its chart-topping lead single "Umbrella" were major breakthroughs in her career that brought her to widespread prominence. The album and its Reloaded version (2008) produced the worldwide hit singles "Don't Stop the Music", "Take a Bow", and "Disturbia". The record was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, winning Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Umbrella". Following a highly publicized altercation with then-boyfriend Chris Brown, she released her fourth studio album, Rated R, in November 2009. It was followed by three more albums: Loud (2010), Talk That Talk (2011), and her first Billboard 200 number one album Unapologetic (2012). That same year, she appeared in her first theatrical feature film, Battleship.

She has sold more than 150 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling artists of all time. Many of her songs rank among the world's best-selling singles of all time, such as "Umbrella", "Take a Bow", "Disturbia", "Only Girl (In the World)", "S&M", "We Found Love", "Diamonds" and "Stay". In addition to her solo work, Rihanna has collaborated with numerous other artists, including being featured on the worldwide hits "Live Your Life" (with T.I.), "Run This Town" (with Jay-Z and Kanye West), "Love the Way You Lie" and "The Monster" (both with Eminem). She has achieved thirteen number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the youngest and fastest solo artist to achieve the feat. Billboard named her the Digital Songs Artist of the 2000s decade and the top Hot 100 artist of the 2010s decade.

Rihanna is known for consistently reinventing her style and image, most notably since Good Girl Gone Bad. Her work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including seven Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, 22 Billboard Music Awards, and two BRIT Awards. In 2012, Forbes ranked her the fourth most powerful celebrity of the year, with earnings of $53 million between May 2011 and May 2012. The same year, TIME named Rihanna one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. At the American Music Awards of 2013, she received the first ever Icon Award. On June 2, 2014, Rihanna will be presented with Fashion Icon lifetime achievement award from Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

News : Prince Hops On TIDAL Exclusively

News : Prince Hops On TIDAL Exclusively

Prince has decided to withdraw his entire back-catalogue from every music streaming service, making an exception for the Jay Z-owned Tidal.

The singer – who has had an uneasy relationship with the digital world in the past – made the move on Wednesday (July 1).

Spotify posted a statement to Facebook, which read: "Prince’s publisher has asked all streaming services to remove his catalog."

"We have cooperated with the request, and hope to bring his music back as soon as possible."

Late last year, Prince deleted his social media accounts and removed all of his videos from YouTube. He has previously threatened fans sharing his music on the video website with legal notices.

Speaking to The Guardian in 2011, Prince said: "[Musicians] made money [online] before piracy was real crazy. Nobody’s making money now except phone companies, Apple and Google … It’s like the gold rush out there. Or a carjacking. There’s no boundaries."

He added: "I personally can’t stand digital music. You’re getting sound in bits. It affects a different place in your brain. When you play it back, you can’t feel anything. We’re analogue people, not digital."

This week saw the introduction of a new competitor to the likes of Tidal and Spotify, with tech giant Apple launching its Apple Music streaming service and Beats 1 radio station.

The features of Apple Music include on-demand streaming, social networking that allows artists to connect with their fans and more.

Tidal recently parted ways with the company's CEO Peter Tonstad, who was serving as interim boss since April and replaced previous CEO Andy Chen, who was dismissed after just two weeks.

Videos : Kendrick Lamar : Alright

Videos : Kendrick Lamar : Alright

An album of the magnitude of Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly deserves visuals that are just as provocative, and that’s certainly the case for “Alright”. The Colin Tilley-directed video is a gritty metaphor for the continued injustices experienced by black adolescents.

The video begins with scenes of police brutality — specifically, an officer shooting a black man in the back. It then segues to a dreamlike sequence starring Kendrick and his Black Hippy crew (ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock) in which they their celebrate success, freedom, and safety. They get their car carried by police, dance atop an abandoned cruiser, and perform death-defying tricks all across Los Angeles. However, almost as soon as their happiness is achieved, reality comes crashing down from a light pole.

Singles : Meek Mill : R.I.C.O. ft. Drake

Singles : Meek Mill : R.I.C.O. ft. Drake

Listen To : Meek Mill : R.I.C.O.

Meek Mill‘s sophomore dream has finally come true. The rapper’s second album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, has officially arrived after more than a year of delays, hitting iTunes at midnight Monday (June 29). The summer will surely sizzle with this sonic gem, which is deserving of praise for one standout track: the Drake-assisted “R.I.C.O.”

The rapper, who’s fresh off a solid performance at the 2015 BET Awards Sunday night (June 28), taps producers Vinylz and Cubeatz to craft a beat that sounds like the perfect ode to tip-toe around some foes. However, Meek and Drake aren’t keeping things on the quiet side here; they each fire off shots at their respective enemies but Drizzy makes sure to deliver some sage words of advice to his OVO crew in the process (“Everyone home for the summer so let’s not do nothing illegal”).

And if your lazy ways are keeping you glued to the bed, the Toronto native would like to keep it that way. “To the people that think that I owe you s— / Payback’s a bitch and you know that s— / Ya’ll n—-s gettin’ too old for this / Please don’t think nobody notices / I’ve been up for way too many days / Ya’ll sleep enough for me anyway,” he rhymes.

After Drake kicks things off, the Philadelphia MC tries to keep himself in check since he’s still under the eyes of the law while giving a shout out to Nicki Minaj. “I’m on probation so let me not talk what’s illegal (Switch it up) / Today I woke up with my dream girl, she rich as a Beatle / For my teachers that said I won’t make it here / I spend a day what you make a year / I had to drop just to make it clear, that I got it loud like Jamaican here,” Meek raps. If you’re wondering what “R.I.C.O.” means, in this case it likely refers to the RICO Act — the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act — a U.S. federal law that focuses on racketeering and provides civil penalties for acts performed as part of a criminal organization.

“R.I.C.O.” is just one of 14 tracks on Dreams Worth More Than Money, which features the Weeknd (“Pullin Up”), Nicki Minaj (“Bad for You”) and Rick Ross (“Been That”), among others.
