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.
