American Apparel CEO Dov Charney Is Like Steve Jobs or Jeff Bezos, According to Dov Charney

It's A Droid, It's A Phone, It's Superphone!

Steve Jobs may very well be quivering in his boots – or, more likely, in his turtle neck – right about now. Google announced to the world today what happens when they and HTC (a company that makes all those Android running smartphones) come together. Answer? They make one sweet phone.

Jeans – the New Power Play?

Jeans - the New Power Play?

In the early 1950s jeans were synonymous with youthful rebels such as  James Dean and Marlon Brando. They were the working man’s jean turned angst uniform.
