Samsung is taking on Apple's iTunes Radio, as well as Pandora, Spotify, and a host of other companies in the competitive streaming music business, but it picked an innocuous name to do it.
Milk Music, launched Friday and available now in the Google Play store, is Samsung's latest foray into a music service, this time a streaming radio offering.
It's free to download and free to listen to, and importantly, unlike iTunes Radio, it doesn't have ads.
But the company is entering a competitive field. Streaming is the music industry's area of greatest growth, but … Read more
In just five days, Australian fashion house Black Milk will fill a longtime hole in the world of women's fashion: Batman clothes. And if you're thinking tacky vinyl capes and cheesy plastic yellow belts, guess again. As you can see in the video below, these threads are styling.
The line features leggings, and bathing suits imprinted with comic-strip graphics, as well as a couple of superhero-esque skirts and dresses. There are also quite a few GFTs, which, it took me a bit of cyber-sleuthing to find out, stands for girlfriend T-shirt. These have shorter sleeves and curves at the bottom as opposed to BFTs, which are your more standard boxy "boyfriend" shirts (the things you learn writing for Crave). All the T-shirts are long enough that the models wearing them don't seem to need to bother with any pants. … Read more
Now this is a tough one: BMO or Marceline? We love them both, of course, but which one would you rather wear on a dress? Or even a swimsuit?
Australian geek clothier extraordinaire Black Milk has given us this dilemma with its most recent range: officially licensed "Adventure Time" dresses, leggings, T-shirts, and swimsuits. The aforementioned BMO and Marceline appear in the massive collection, alongside Finn, Jake, Gunter, Ice King, Lumpy Space Princess, Party God, Princess Bubblegum, and Tree Trunks.
No Flame Princess, though. We'd be all over Flame Princess. … Read more
When it comes to image, Wall Street's remains somewhere below that of Lance Armstrong and Anthony Weiner.
You'd think, therefore, that Wall Street types might have some sensitivity to how they're seen in the outside world. You'd also think that mud is the perfect gravy for a french fry.
At least that is the view of Brendan O'Connor, the former cook at the well-known four-wheeled New York food provider Milk Truck.
For he was cheesed off when some people from Glass, Lewis & Co came to his truck, ordered around $170 worth of food, and … Read more
We all know the feeling of opening up the fridge and grabbing the milk, only to discover that the white liquid has a horrible sour smell indicating it's gone bad. Wouldn't it be great to be alerted about that while at the office so you can stop at the store on the way home?
Now there's an app for that, along with what the developers of a new technology are calling the "milk jug of the future": the Milkmaid. … Read more
Digg founder Kevin Rose has become the newest partner at Google Ventures.
Google bought Rose's incubator Milk in March, and at the time, it appeared he would be working on Google+.
But now, according to All Things D, Rose will be coming aboard the search giant's venture arm.
In an email to CNET, Google Ventures confirmed Rose's new position.
Rose has been a tech star for years. He first made waves at TechTV, and became more prominent on various Revision3 shows. But it was Digg, a system that allowed Internet users to rank stories' popularity, that made … Read more
Serial entrepreneur Kevin Rose, whose past project list includes the social news site Digg and the now-defunct microblogging service Pownce, is now said to be a Google employee.
According to "sources close to the situation" AllThingsD reports that Rose, along with a number of his employees from his startup incubator Milk have been hired by Google.
Google declined to comment, and Rose did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the initial report.
Rose jumped into tech stardom at an early age, appearing on TechTV and later a number of online shows through Revision3. His breakout … Read more
Oink was well-reviewed here and elsewhere. Users who became attached to the app (or, like me, who reviewed it seriously) may not have been fully aware that Rose himself wasn't committed to it. As the shut-down notice on the Oink.com page says.
We started Milk Inc. to rapidly build and test out new ideas. Oink was our first test and, in preparing to move onto the next project, we've decided to shut it … Read more
We've got just the tights to wear to your upcoming anatomy exam.
With these "Muscles Leggings"--whipped up by designer James Lillis for Black Milk Clothing--there's no way you'll fail (at least not when it comes to the waist-down part of the test).
Then again, it might be more fun to think about slipping into these the next time you visit one of those Body Worlds-type exhibits--you know, the ones with real flayed bodies riding horses or playing basketball? How many people would frantically hail a security guard to report an errant artifact?
Or you could don them for that other, hands-on anatomy class of yours--the one with the cadavers and instrument trays--and run teary-eyed to the instructor crying, "Damn it! I told you Bart needed glasses!"
The possibilities for pranking seem plentiful.… Read more
