Congratulations on getting yourself a brand-new PlayStation 5! After making all of your friends incredibly jealous, it’s time to dive into everything this next-gen console has to offer. Here are 10 tips and tricks for making the most of your PS5.

Stephen Curry, like Michael Jordan, has his own brand now

Stephen Curry has now reached Michael Jordan levels of marketability, as Under Armour announced the launch of the new “Curry Brand” on Monday.

The new line is intended to rival Nike’s Jordan brand and will launch this week with basketball and golf apparel. According to CNBC, the line will unveil some shiny new basketball shoes that are oh-so-conveniently dropping just in time for the holiday shopping season, a point highlighted by Under Armour chief executive Patrik Frisk.

“We wanted to make sure we did this as close as possible to the NBA season finally launching … and the fact that we’re launching in between Black Friday and the holidays we think is very opportune,” Frisk told CNBC.

Curry told Sports Illustrated the brand will be investing in youth sports across the country.

“We are starting with over a $1 million investment to people, programs, products and places — so that

This Common LinkedIn Mistake Could Be Fatal to Your Brand. Do This Instead

LinkedIn is a pretty great tool for building out your professional network. Every day, millions of people connect, find jobs, and even discover new customers. Unlike other social media platforms, LinkedIn is more focused on professional relationships, and as such, it avoids many of the pitfalls of Facebook and Twitter.

If you use LinkedIn well, it can be a fantastic resource for finding your next job or landing a new customer. The problem is, many people aren’t using it well. Quite to the contrary, many people use LinkedIn in a way that probably hurts them more than they think.

The problem is that LinkedIn helps you find people who might be in the same network based not only on their personal connections, but based on their work history, job roles, and even skills. That’s great, but if you’re prospecting on LinkedIn based on that information, you still have to do

America’s unique brand of entrepreneurism is, and always has been, a source of hope for the future

Many of us started the new decade with high hopes and renewed aspirations, and instead, this year delivered a devastating blow. For all the setbacks and losses we’ve experienced, a brighter future remains. We can still look forward to a thriving entrepreneurial environment and fruitful innovations that can continue to improve lives and open new opportunities and horizons.

From afar, the state of American entrepreneurialism seems like a Jackson Pollock painting — messy, disorganized and without a central intent or focus. In one slice of the country, there may be a new and flourishing entrepreneurial endeavor, and yet that same company and idea might be illegal in a different part of the country. America has one the of the highest startup failure rates across the globe, yet we produce the greatest share of the world’s “unicorn startups” — private companies that are deemed highly-valued and successful, such as Facebook, Amazon

Meet Xor, the Lux Phone Brand Shunning The Tech Arms Race

“We don’t want to get mixed up in a technological arms race,” Hutch Hutchison, vice president of design and co-founder of phone startup Xor, told me about the unusual Xor Titanium phone, a new luxury device expected to launch early in 2021. The technological arms race, as Hutchison refers to it, is the backbone of the annual upgrade cycle followed by Samsung, Apple, and most other big-name brands, and arguably drives regular new purchases.

To avoid the arms race, the Xor Titanium is the least technologically advanced phone I’ve discussed in a while, to the point where it doesn’t even have Bluetooth on board. So if tech isn’t the reason to buy, what is? Hutchison doesn’t see the phone as a challenger to the smartphone, but as a tactile, personal product people will buy with their

In the increasingly competitive world of fashion ecommerce, one thing is certain — the industry is set for meteoric growth. 

Despite the coronavirus impacting global supply chains, the online fashion e-commerce market is still slated to grow at a CAGR of 11.5 percent for the next three years, largely due to an increase in online spending and improved consumer choice.

Huawei Selling Honor Phone Brand in Face of US Sanctions | Business News

By JOE McDONALD and ZEN SOO, AP Business Writers

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese tech giant Huawei is selling its budget-price Honor smartphone brand in an effort to rescue the struggling business from damaging U.S. sanctions imposed on its parent company.

The sale announced Tuesday is aimed at reviving Honor by separating it from Huawei’s network equipment business, which Washington says is a security threat, an accusation Huawei denies. It is under sanctions that block access to most U.S. processor chips and other technology.

Huawei Technologies Ltd.’s announcement gave no financial details but said the company will have no ownership stake once the sale is completed. Huawei will retain its flagship Huawei smartphone brand.

The buyer is a state-owned company in Shenzhen, the southern city where Huawei is headquartered, and a group of Honor retailers. Earlier news reports on rumors of a possible sale put the price as high as 100
