Coachella Weekend 1: A staple of the entertainment industry and a true salute to the Southern California lifestyle, Coachella has long been the envied mecca of music lovers everywhere. The first weekend of Coachella welcomed a wave of A-list performers including Outkast, Lorde, Muse, Beck and Arcade Fire. Pharrell Williams delighted his audience by bringing out an all-start list of guest performers including Gwen Stefani, Busta Rhymes and Snoop Dogg. Our friends from RCS were there with their carnival rides and we are sure they had a spectacular view of all the performances!
Social media: Twitter plans to completelyrevamp their user profile layout and it doesn’t look half-bad. A large header image, larger profile photo space and customized tweet structuring (tweet pins, anyone?) make the change an ideal one for brands and consumers alike.

Tech: We reported rumors of an Amazon smartphone with a 3D display months ago, but now rumor is finally transforming into reality.

Whether it will overshadow the iPhone and Galaxy users has yet to be seen.
