Oh Hey, Did You Hear There’s a New iPhone?

We managed to miss most of the up-to-the-minute reporting about today’s totally awesome Foo Fighters concert because we were busy, you know, doing our jobs. But we just caught up on the news, and we are shocked to learn that Apple unveiled the new iPhone5 today as well—what a coincidence! We wondered why no one had been responding to our “I’m so hungry” status updates this afternoon!

Confession: we only learned of this earth-shattering event via our daily Fab.com promo email when we saw the headline “iPhone 5 Accessories – Designed By You, Only on Fab, By Quirky.” Come on–that line is both confusing and exciting, right?

We’re currently staring at our sad iPhone4 and trying to figure out how the new model is different, because we can be a little slow. We know that the 5 is slightly slimmer, that it takes “panoramic photos” (sorry Instagram), and that the screen is a little bigger. And of course the LTE wi-fi means faster Internet access everywhere, so we can download the new issue of The New Yorker while we’re in the shower and let it sit there unread without feeling guilty about wasting paper.

OK, so what does everyone think of the new model? Do its new features satisfy customers’ desires? Does the battery last longer than twelve hours now? (Apparently so!)

And, of course, the only question that matters: Can Apple continue to make Jobs-sized leaps into the future under the leadership of Tim Cook? Did the company make Steve proud today?

Sunshine Sachs: Fans “Earn” Tix to Neil Young Charity Gig

Wailin'Principals at big-time NY/LA-based PR firm Sunshine Sachs don’t like to bring too much attention to themselves, but that hasn’t stopped them from scoring great headlines and sponsoring A-list events with a focus on noble causes like, say…reducing poverty rates around the world. (Did you know that more than 1.3 billion people across the globe live on the equivalent of $1.50 a day? We need to get out more.)

The firm’s latest announcement is significant in a couple of ways. They’re publicizing a massive September 29th concert in Central Park with headliners Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, and The Black Keys, but the details of the event are even more interesting: As reported on the Huffington Post, the show’s 54,000 tickets will not be available through the usual channels. Fans will have to “earn” their way into a raffle by downloading an app from the Global Citizen website and accumulating points by performing acts like donating to charities, signing petitions, or sharing information about global poverty on social media channels.
