Apple Is Delaying HomePod, Which Is Great Or Unfortunate (Or Maybe Both)

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 19:53:59 GMT

Hitting a deadline by shipping a buggy product isn’t good for anyone. But Apple’s way-early HomePod reveal also had its downsides.

Apple said today that it would delay the launch of its HomePod smart speaker device until early 2018, saying in a statement that “we need more time” to complete the product. The HomePod was announced back in June at Apple’s WWDC keynote, and the original plan was to get the device on store shelves in time for the holiday season.

Retailers that close on Thanksgiving lose out, says location data

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 17:55:14 GMT

Recently, stores have made a point of keeping their doors shut on Thanksgiving–and even Black Friday–to encourage their employees and customers to spend time with their families. But taking the moral high ground comes at a cost, according to Foursquare, which gathers location data of about 50 million monthly global users of its apps and mines it …

Inside Royal Caribbean’s Wild, Tech-Filled Cruise Of The Future

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 17:10:42 GMT

Senators Tell Kushner To Search His Email Again For These Keywords

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 16:45:48 GMT

Kushner hadn’t produced several documents that “are known to exist,” said senators, including one about a “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite.”

Yesterday the Senate Judiciary committee sent a letter to Jared Kushner’s lawyers requesting more documents from Donald Trump’s son-in-law. “We appreciate your voluntary cooperation with the Committee’s investigation, but the production appears to have been incomplete,” the letter said.

Will The Latest Keystone Spill Change The Fate Of The Nebraska Pipeline?

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 15:30:24 GMT

A major decision about a new pipeline happens on November 20. Amazingly, the commissioners are not supposed to review oil spill risks as part of the decision.

On Thursday, days before Nebraska regulators decide whether to grant a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline in the state to TransCanada, the company behind the project, the first Keystone pipeline–which runs from Canada through the Great Plains–spilled around 210,000 gallons of oil in South Dakota.

PR Post Weinstein: “Everybody’s Worried Their Client Might Be Next”

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 15:00:39 GMT

Publicist and crisis management expert Hunter Frederick opens up about how the climate has changed for publicists in the last six weeks.

Working for a big PR firm means you can’t drop a client just because you’re personally offended by their behavior.
