Will.i.am Is Working On a Watch With Gucci

 

Will.i.am’s watch is about to get even fancier. The musician turn tech entrepreneur announced plans this week to partner with Gucci on a new version if his smartwatch. Called Puls, the smartwatch is a cuff of sorts and works independently of a smartphone. Since the phone has its own SIM card it can be used to make calls and can receive text messages on its own as well as play music and interact with social networks.

Will.i.am’s original smart cuff, Puls, was received with mixed reviews when it unveiled it late last year. While reviewers liked that it could be used independently from a smartphone, the cuff is awkward for many people to wear, and the tiny screen makes doing things like typing text messages difficult for most people.

The Gucci version of the watch looks also identical to the original Puls we saw last year. It will be interesting to see what bells and whistles (if any) the musician and fashion brand decide to add to the Puls when they unveil it to the world.

The red, or the white?

When paired with delicious food, a good wine transcends a simple libation and becomes something more. It complements the meal and makes it that much better. A full bodied red, or a crisp white, can make eating simple food an experience. But pair the wrong food with a red, a blush, or a white, and it simply becomes something you do to exist. And who wants to simply exist?
Why does merlot go better with duck than with gazpacho, for instance? Because of quite a few things, actually. First you must know how much sugar, acid, and fat is in the food. Also, know how the wine tastes by itself. Does it have a smoky aftertaste? Or is it sweet? Alfredo goes with white wine better because the light, fruity wine pairs well with the creamy thick sauce. A good cut of steak goes well with cabernet sauvignon because the meat’s proteins and fats lessen the tannins and help the underlying flavors of fruit and berries to come out, which plays well with the smoky flavor of the steak.
Knowing how the wine tastes beforehand is very important, so go to a few wine tastings. This saves you from having to buy a bottle and find out it’s not to your tastes. The Antique Wine Company has wine tastings that are famous the world over, so if you can, attend one. Learn from the Masters, literally. Antique Wine Company employs some of the most knowledgeable sommeliers in the business. In one tasting you can go from knowing nothing about wine to pairing melon salad and Prosecco like a pro.

Yo Quiero the Dress!

If you’ve ever spilled something on yourself while eating, you may have had someone jokingly tell you, “You look good in what you eat.” However, Olivia Mears is a young lady who takes that phrase even more literally. She is the artist and costume designer behind the dress that will be featured in a new Taco Bell ad coming out this Sunday. (No, it isn’t that black and blue or gold and white dress this time). Alexei Beltyukov has read that Mear’s dress is of interest to Taco Bell, because it is completely fashioned out of food wrappers from the fast-food chain. Click Here. You might even say that she looks “good enough to eat.” Groan if you want to, but Mears won first place and a trip to Los Angeles for her efforts in a contest that was totally up her alley. How much better does it get than to have fun, to use your giftings, to win a prize, to get a trip, to star in a TV advertisement, to do something you love, and to take a stand for something you believe in?
