La clip, ospitata originariamente su YouTube, è già stata rimossa, ma il danno è fatto: del telefono ormai si sa già tutto

A un soffio dal lancio di HTC U 11 previsto per domani, un video su YouTube rompe le uova nel paniere della casa taiwanese rovinandole la sorpresa. Diffuso dall’account di un utente vietnamita, il video è stato rimosso a tempo di record, ma la Rete non perdona scivoloni di questo genere: repliche e schermate della clip hanno iniziato a circolare altrettanto velocemente. Grazie al materiale emerso possiamo dunque confermare che il gadget abbandonerà la scocca completamente metallica che ha caratterizzato per anni i dispositivi di punta della società, per passare a una soluzione ibrida con telaio in alluminio e cover posteriore in vetro.

Basato su un display LCD da 5,5 pollici Quad HD e su un processore Snapdragon 835 coadiuvato da 4 GB di RAM, in realtà da queste prime immagini HTC U 11 colpisce più per l’aspetto estetico. Luccicante com’è, il gadget non mancherà di attirare una buona dose di impronte digitali, ma è allo stesso tempo una calamita anche per lo sguardo.

Nelle immagini trovano conferma anche molte delle altre indiscrezioni circolate in questi giorni sul dispositivo: HTC U 11 ad esempio non avrà una doppia fotocamera (dovrebbe essere basato su un sensore posteriore Ultrapixel da 11 megapixel e su uno anteriore da 16) né un’uscita audio jack, la cui funzione sarà svolta dalla presa USB-C integrata e da un adattatore incluso nella confezione.

Nel video si parla brevemente anche della funzione più chiacchierata dello smartphone: la possibilità di controllarlo stringendone tra le mani la cornice. HTC U 11 sarà infatti corredato di una serie di sensori disposti lungo il telaio e in grado di misurare la forza esercitata su quest’ultimo. In questo caso di dettagli non ne sono trapelati, ma è possibile che HTC voglia utilizzare questo genere di interazione per far eseguire al telefono semplici operazioni come scorrimenti, ed esecuzione di scorciatoie, come già avviene in alcuni telefoni per le gesture da disegnare sullo schermo a partire dallo standby.

Il video non rivela nulla su uno degli aspetti più importanti del dispositivo: il prezzo, che più di tutti determinerà il successo del gadget. Non occorrerà attendere molto: la presentazione è attesa tra circa un giorno.

Apple ha diffuso i primi rendering della piazza su cui sorgerà il nuovo store, la cui data di apertura è ancora top secret

Piazza Liberty, a poche centinaia di metri da Piazza del Duomo, è il luogo scelto da Apple per il nuovo Store. Gli architetti e i designer di Cupertino si sono già messi al lavoro e hanno preparato una serie di immagini. Il negozio sarà costruito sotto terra e sarà accessibile tramite una larga scalinata che lo collegherà alla piazza, rimodellata a mo’ di anfiteatro al cui centro è prevista anche una cascata.

Norman Foster, l’architetto inglese che per Apple ha già disegnato l’Apple Campus 2 (famoso per altre opere, tra le quali il Municipio di Londra) ha preparato più di una versione del progetto che, secondo Apple “non sarà solo un negozio, ma un punto di incontro, ispirazione, creatività e tecnologia nel centro di Milano”. Gli accordi presi con l’amministrazione meneghina prevedono almeno 8 appuntamenti culturali gratuiti affinché la piazza rimanga un luogo aperto a tutti i cittadini.

Il parallelepipedo in vetro, simbolo che accompagna gli store di Cupertino, sarà visibile anche da Corso Vittorio Emanuele, che si snoda immediatamente alle spalle di Piazza Liberty.

I lavori sono iniziati a febbraio e sulla data di inaugurazione a Cupertino hanno tutti la bocca cucita.

When it comes to in-season spring produce, mangoes are standout superstars. This exotic fruit is sweet, fleshy and satisfying to eat on its own or as a welcome addition to recipes. You’ll find a variety of coloured mangoes (red, green and yellow) in your grocery store, but the inside is always golden and delicious.

How to tell if a mango is ripe
Since mangoes come in a variety of shades, it’s not always easy to tell if they’re ready to eat based on their colour. A mango should smell like a mango—it should have a sweet scent. And, if you gently press on the fruit, it should be a little tender. This means it’s not soft, and not firm, but it will give a little when pressed.

How to speed up the ripening process
If you purchase mangoes that are not ripe, place them in a paper bag and leave them on your counter for one or two days. Once ripened, transfer them to the refrigerator.

Try prepared mangoes in these 10 refreshing recipes:

With the way we’ve neglected them for so long, you’d think the fashion set would be *so* over sleeves: Instead using those that come with our coat, we spend most of 2015 perfecting the “drape”—you know, the pose where your jacket lays just so over your shoulders, with the sleeves delated enough to blow away with any moderate gust of wind. And even though we’ve finally resolved to actually use said sleeves, we’re not totally there—yet.

Enter, the blogger pose of 2017. You know the one: Unlike the drape, the blogger/influencer/street-style star actually puts her arms through the sleeves, but not all the way (never all the way). Instead, she shows off her bare neck and chest, or the ruffled collar of her shirt, or some detailing near her upper arms by doing the half-take-off. And now that spring’s here, the pose has even graduated into true off-the-shoulder territory, with the jacket often secured off both arms with a button or a tie. The result? The subject comes off equal parts insouciant and stylish—as though the photographer-slash-Instagram-boyfriend had just caught her in the act, so she looked at the camera and said, “Who, me?”

All jokes aside—I’m certainly guilty of it myself—it’s a good technique if you want to show off your shirt but you also don’t want to freeze. But it’s also a tried-and-true winner on the ‘gram: So many of the most-liked pics on my feed employ the trend. Want to get in on the action? Here’s how 19 Instagrammers nailed it.

Height, to me, has never been about limbs and genetics. Growing up, I was taught that with enough gumption and balance, even I – at five foot three inches – could attain mythic proportions. With the right heel, of course.

My mother claims to have married my father for his height. At four foot eleven, she saw in my father dreams of…what, exactly? Spawned athletes? Supermodels? Alas, the genetics of my mother, and my mother’s mother, and my mother’s mother’s mother before her, ensured certain vertical limitations.

After years of fighting my fate, one day I said, Fuck it. Gone were the Steve Madden pumps I was told would elongate my legs and the waist-pinching flares I hoped would do the same for my torso. Instead, I wore strappy shoes that cut my ankles in half and peasant skirts that “did nothing for my figauh.”

The Internet is replete with styles and trends that short women are advised to avoid. Chief among them: knee-highs, midi and maxi skirts, ankle-strap shoes and even the tunic. But what are fashion rules if not meant to be broken, right? Here, proof in photo form that being short doesn’t have to limit your style.

Since an episode of The Doctors suggested that you should match your lip shade to your nipple to flatter your skin tone, the internet has gone into a tailspin—literally.

Here, a slew of real women put the theory to the test and reflect on the uncharted, bosom-swatching experience, as well as the final results, which range from pleasantly surprised to unintentionally grunge.

1. Chelsea Peng, Assistant Editor





“It was really hard to match without taking my top off, but I was wearing overalls and an extremely puffy shirt underneath, and I didn’t feel like dealing with that many straps. Which might explain how I came out with a shade that was a bit more PLUMMY than it looked in the tube/on my hand. (I don’t have purple nipples, don’t worry.) Jazmin said it looked great, though, but I didn’t believe her because ’90s brown lips are not my aesthetic. Nipples are a good starting point, but be smart and look at your FACE. Because that’s where lipstick goes, duh.”

2. Taylore Glynn, Beauty and Health Assistant

“Because I’m on the pale side, I thought a nipple-matched lip shade would wash me out. And of course, in my head, my nips were also some adorable shade of baby pink, which I quickly realized is not the case. After swatching three colors that seemed identical, I settled on a dusty rose hue that was surprisingly flattering once applied. It grew on me so much that I stole it from the shoot—sorry, guys! I also dug how feminine the process was…you can’t get any more ‘natural’ than this.”

3. Mehera Bonner, Senior Entertainment Editor

“The shade I ended up with was far too pink for my face, I would have preferred an orange, glowier look to complement my tan skin. So I guess moral of the story is I wish I had orange nipples and this test did not work for me. The end. Bye.”

4. Rosa Heyman, Social Editor

“Generally I don’t believe in science (JK, I’m not our government), but this color-matching theory is definitely onto something. It was challenging to match the lip shade with my nipple—could have used better lighting and a second opinion, honestly—so I don’t think the shade I put on was actually a perfect match. I still liked how it looked, and making everyone around me uncomfortable when I told them I was wearing my nipple shade.”

5. Jazmin Jones, Video Editor

“I was SO EXCITED to put this philosophy to the test! However, I was underwhelmed by the end result as I own several lipsticks in the same hue anyway. It did seem flattering in a subtle way. But turns out the shock value was far more conceptual than visual.”

6. Lauren Valenti, Beauty Editor

“As much as I love color theory, I was especially skeptical about this one as the complexion on my face differs ever so slightly from that on my body. And in retrospect, it’s clear I totally rushed the matching process. The shade I ended up with is darker and more purple than it should have been. I looked unintentionally grunge. Never. Again.”
