adidas Originals Superstar

When the Superstar shoe was first launched by adidas back in 1969, the word ‘Superstar’ was unambiguous. Today, the word has been corrupted to the point of confusion. So this year, adidas Originals sets out to question what it means to be a superstar, beginning with this film directed by Karim Huu Do and featuring Pharrell Williams, David Beckham, Rita Ora and Damian Lillard.

Celebrating the legacy of the Superstar, the Superstar Vintage pack range is now available in Singapore and retails at S$159.

Apple App Store set new record in first week of 2015

Seems like Apple started 2015 with a big bang. The company announced that the first week of January set a new record for billings from the App Store with customers around the world spending nearly half a billion US dollars on apps and in-app purchases. New Year’s Day 2015 marked the single biggest day ever in App Store sales history.

These milestones follow a record-breaking 2014, in which billings rose 50 percent and apps generated over US $10 billion in revenue for developers. To date, App Store developers have earned a cumulative US $25 billion from the sale of apps and games.

During the holiday season App Store customers helped make history with their support of Apps for (RED), a special initiative on the store with exclusive content where all proceeds went to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. Apple donated US$20 million this quarter, and since partnering with (RED) has donated over $100 million.

Apple ignited the app revolution with the launch of the App Store in 2008, and since then, an entire industry has been built around app design and development. In just six years, the iOS ecosystem has helped create 627,000 jobs in the US alone. The App Store offers more than 1.4 million apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users in 155 countries around the world, with more than 725,000 of these apps made for iPad.
