The CultCast
For years Apple has been reportedly working their magic on the worst device in every home—the remote control. And now, with a rumored new Apple TV on the the horizon, we’ll tell you why an Apple-hewn controller could be its flagship feature.  Plus: how to create your own Apple Watch band; how to share your digital heartbeat with other lonely Apple Watch wearers; and we vote on our favorite new gadgets on an all-new Faves ’N Raves.
 
And stick around for CultCast 2nd hour with our guest, award-winning graphic designer and professor, Sean Adams. Sean shares his insights, tools, and tips for breaking into the design industry, building a name for yourself, and why everyone needs to care about design.
 
We have three great sponsors this episode:
 
Lynda.com has over 3000 courses for you to choose fro. Learn to run your business better, become a photoshop ninja, learn how to create music with your iPad, and so much more.  Learn all you want for free for 10 days, just head to lynda.com/cultcast to start your free trial.

Freshbooks, the easy-to-use invoicing software designed to help small business owners get organized, save time invoicing and get paid faster.  And I can vouch for this from experience, it also makes tax time a cinch.  Get started with a free trial at Freshbooks.com/cultcast, and please enter “CultCast” in the “How did you hear about us?” section!
 
We also want to give Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com a huge thanks for the great music you hear in today's show.
