    Apple’s mission statement on the recently unveiled Apple iPad Air 2 is simply:

    How do you improve on something that’s such a powerful and yet beautifully simple tool? How do you take something that has transformed the way we work, learn, create, and share, and make it even better?

    You start by making it 18% thinner.

    Nicki Minaj talks about her “Anaconda” music video in the latest issue of GQ magazine.

    “I don’t know what there is to really talk about,” Nicki Minaj tells GQ’s Taffy Brodesser-Akner of her Anaconda video. “I’m being serious. I just see the video as being a normal video.” Minaj, who refuses to address the female form and message behind her hit, says there’s no hidden meaning, no layer beneath the song or video. “I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends.” Minaj continues, “She”—Nicki’s character in the video—“is just talking about two guys that she dated in the past and what they’re good at and what they bought her and what they said to her. It’s just cheeky, like a funny story.” But, towards the end of the interview Minaj acknowledges that the video is also about power and control. “I’m chopping up the banana. Did you realize that? At first I’m being sexual with the banana, and then it’s like, ‘Ha-ha, no.’ ” When discussing how the Drake scene immediately follows the kitchen scene, she says, “Yeah, that was important for us to show in the kitchen scene, because it’s always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything.”
