"Several prominent US lawmakers have attacked Snowden’s reputation and motives, including former vice president Dick Cheney, who yesterday called Snowden a “traitor” in an appearance on Fox News. “Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American, and the more panicked talk we hear from people like him, [Senator Dianne] Feinstein, and [Representative Peter] King, the better off we all are,” Snowden said today in response to his critics. “If they had taught a class on how to be the kind of citizen Dick Cheney worries about, I would have finished high school."

"Apple has set fire to iOS. Everything’s in flux. Those with the least to lose have the most to gain, because this fall, hundreds of millions of people will start demanding apps for a platform with thousands of old, stale players and not many new, nimble alternatives. If you want to enter a category that’s crowded on iOS 6, and you’re one of the few that exclusively targets iOS 7, your app can look better, work better, and be faster and cheaper to develop than most competing apps."

This is why platform refreshes are huge. It’s a cataclysm - and with a levelled playing field, the best idea can win against the established one.

The Y3 Qasa comes from a branch of Adidas, focusing on fashion and innovation. Designed by Yohji Yamamoto, the Qasa features a minimal shoe somewhat reminiscent of the Nike Roshe Run.
I come from a design program that loves shoes, I mean absolutely obsesses over them. Several of my classmates had sneaker collections of 60+ , some of which are now designing for sneaker companies. That being said, when I see a noteworthy shoe I tend to geek out.
The wrap-like design helps the shoe to conform to the foot, making it more comfortable than the typical lace-up sneaker. It comes out this fall with a $300 price tag; so not for everyone, but if you are a sneakerhead get excited.
