Monday - April 7, 2014 One thing that Apple made clear when it took the smartphone market by storm and away from then-dominant players Palm, BlackBerry and Microsoft is that to win you need to make big bets and change the battle. The market is now dominated by Apple and Google technology -- much of which Google doesn't control -- and Microsoft just swapped CEOs because the old CEO couldn't pull the needed rabbit out of his hat.

The line between the consumers and producers of commercial objects is increasingly becoming blurred in the 21st century. As an economic imperative for consumer participation is quickly emerging, more than ever before businesses are turning to consumers to guide their creative decisions. Crucially this could begin to have a significant impact on the way that cities and their commercial architecture is designed and evaluated, through the promotion of consumers as direct, collective decision makers. Referring to key economic theorists; the work of contemporary architectural practitioners; while additionally including first hand interaction with one of the world’s most successful prosumption communities, this essay attempts to construct an argument for the value of consumer involvement in the active design of 21st century commercial architecture.

Engadget The 1 percent have long had smartphones from Porsche and Vertu to quench their high-end thirst, but when it comes to dual-SIM handsets, the elite have had to settle for something a little more ordinary. For those in need, Gresso created Azimuth, the first dual-SIM luxury handset. Starting at $2,000, the phone is made of titanium, with both the keys and logo crafted out of 18K or white gold. Since appearances are all that matter, you're getting some pretty low-end specs under the hood, including 2GB of "internal memory," a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 and a tiny 1,100mAh battery. To put things in perspective, Samsung's Galaxy S5 starts with 16GB of built-in storage, a 16-megapixel camera and a 2,800mAh battery. The difference being, anyone can buy an S5.

The letter had a return address on it, so I knew immediately what I had to do — burn it. New postal rule: No backsies.
