The newest denizen of the Burger King kingdom will be selling Buffalo-sauce donuts at the New York State Fair through Monday.
Yesterday we scaled Arby's "Meat Mountain" sandwich. And today, we learned that Tim Hortons is rolling out a "Buffalo Crunch Donut" that encases tangy Buffalo sauce in a glazed-donut jacuzzi. Let's take a dip!
This early (and adorable) clip from Light Chaser Animation, which aims to rival Hollywood CGI in quality and reach, looks promising.
Gary Wang's first entrepreneurial endeavor was a video-sharing site called Tudou that launched shortly before YouTube, got huge in China, and made him a fortune.

The features of Apple's new HomeKit framework for app developers show where Cupertino is placing its bets.
Pre-roll video ads, too.
It looks like Apple is going big: huge iPhones, huge iPads. And now this week, we learned that Apple is working on new ways for "freemium" app makers to eke out revenue, one of which falls in line with its strategy to go bigger everything: full-screen banner ads.
What should Ikea do with its shiny new toy?
Ikea plans to ditch all of its CFL and halogen lighting for LEDs by 2015, leading the furniture giant's green tech arm to make a "strategic investment" in Design LED Products, a Scottish company that's pretty good with LEDs. Ikea gives DLP funding and, in turn, gets access to the lighting company's technology.
Typendium makes (surprisingly interesting) typography history freely accessible to anyone with an iOS.
The histories of your favorite typefaces, from Futura to Gill Sans to Times New Roman, have been conveniently collected in one elegant iOS app, called Typendium, released this week. It includes short essays and illustrations explaining everything from why Palatino is the world's most pirated typeface (an imitation has been given to every Microsoft Office user in the world) to why Gill Sans is considered controversial (Eric Gill himself was something of a monster in his personal life).
The cloud storage company also streamlined its pricing structure for pro accounts: $10 a month for 1 TB of storage.

Looking to differentiate its offering and convert more free users to paid customers, the cloud storage company on Wednesday debuted a set of features to give users more control over the files they share.

A militarized police forces changes the mentality of the crowd it's designed to protect.
One of the clearest lessons from Ferguson is that the militarization of local police has become a major problem across the United States. Images of grotesquely armed forces staring down peaceful protestors in the streets have given way to interactive maps of the armored vehicles and assault weapons distributed to police departments in recent years. On Saturday, President Obama announced a White House review of that unsettling trend--too late this time around, but appropriate nevertheless.
The conventional wisdom behind forceful crowd control deserves a review of its own. Rather than passively controlling a protest, heavy riot gear actively changes the dynamics of crowd behavior, according to the best new behavioral evidence. The twisted outcome is one that too many police forces have yet to learn: the military-style equipment intended to enhance public safety often ends up threatening it.

Jaime Weston, VP of Brand & Creative for the NFL, says the league pulled together on its brand only after consulting its MVPs: the fans.

If every email you sent was perfectly phrased and well-received right out of the inbox, how much time could you save?
Have you ever received an amazing email, one that you'd like to print out and pin to your wall, one that made you grin from ear to ear or slow-clap in appreciation and reverence?
The bad news: Our brains are wired to be negative. The good news: You can train your brain to hold on to happiness in 10 seconds.

There's one adjective that's never used to criticize men, yet it shows up at an alarming rate in women's performance reviews.
It's a scenario that could be straight out of a textbook on gender bias:
So many brands get it so wrong. Does a company need women at the top to strike the right note with female consumers?
From telling women they're too fat to fit into their yoga pants to equating women's body hair with "dudeness," there have been some pretty misguided messages sent to women recently.
A new report in The Verge unearths some of the aggressive tactics employed by the ride-share service.
Earlier this month, Lyft publicly accused Uber associates of summoning and then canceling thousands of rides at the last second. Uber flat-out denied that those requests were true, but now it looks like we have some evidence as to where those marching orders came from.

India's largest media group has instated a new social media policy that requires journalists to turn over the passwords to their personal social media accounts. Under these new guidelines, publications can post on reporters and editors' accounts without their knowledge.
