What are you doing Star Wars Eve? If you’re one of the lucky ones to snag a ticket to the 20 hour marathon of all six Star Wars movies before the midnight showing, you will also enjoy your own reserved seat, event credential, Star Wars lanyard, Commemorative Souvenir Ticket, Collectible BB-8 Button, treats and more! For the rest of those who missed the starship, you have not missed out on the grand opportunity to view Star Wars: The Force Awakens in Hollywood’s historic El Capitan Theatre. There are even tickets on certain dates that grant you access to a special cosplay event with drinks, food, souvenirs, and admission to the costume exhibit. And with a lightsaber show before the viewing, dare we say this is the BEST place to watch The Force Awakens in all of Los Angeles?
Apple released its new television ad for Apple TV today. The concept is beautiful, and features a television test bar pattern motif that serve as windows to some of the featured titles and programs available on the platform.
While the spot is mesmerizing to watch and artfully executed, I feel like it isn’t really representative of what the ad claims this is: The Future of Television. All of the snippets highlighted in the commercial are shows and movies we’re familiar with, that are already readily available on apps and platforms we’ve been using for years. And on top of that, it feels awkwardly repetitive. Granted, there are brief glimpses into what Siri can do and what kinds of apps lend to interactivity (such as the Gilt app and games), but they come late and don’t seem deliberate. I feel like this is another contrived attempt to merge existing technologies into something we don’t need (ahem, the Apple Watch) and claim that this is the next big thing.
Star Wars Uncut is an amazing Internet project that mashes up scenes from the films that are recreated and submitted by thousands fans. The end result is extremely creative, hilarious, “equal parts fun, kooky, and dearly nostalgic.”
You guys. Han and Leia in a pas de deux like never before. And those little baby ewoks? Can you even?!
(As if you couldn’t tell ,we’re counting down to the theatrical release of The Force Awakens (which is December 18th, for those of you living under a rock) and devoting our blog to the #12DaysOfStarWars.)

Happy Tutorial Tuesday! Last week I had to create a keyboard extension for iOS that displays images and a search bar to be able to search for certain images. I looked up several tutorials, everything seemed straight forward… Until I started typing in the search and I couldn’t get the focus back on the the third party app (msg / or any other app). The nightmare began! Continue reading
