Fifteen seconds — that’s all we get in this first micro-teaser for Marvel’s Agent Carter

So, how is it that we’re still so excited?

It could be Hayley Atwell’s gun-wielding badassery. Because that never fails to give us chills.

It could be her expression in that elevator — the one that says, “I can kick your butt without even disturbing the hat on my head.”

It could also be that when we went to the Marvel event yesterday,…

It may also bring the first flakes of the season to Boston, Massachusetts and several other cities

In fact, it’s possible that the season’s first few wet flakes…

Google wants to change email for the better. To do it, it’s launching a new email app, separate from Gmail, called Inbox.

Announced via blog post, Inbox builds upon Gmail’s relatively successful tabs, which introduced new buckets for Social updates and Promotions. The app features Bundles, which will group together similar kinds of messages, so things like bank statements and receipts are grouped together. Bundles will be user-customizable as well.

So, you’re attending a conference. You’ve paid the entrance fee, put on the best outfit ever, grabbed a big stack of business cards and made sure your LinkedIn profile is up to date.

The one piece of the conference puzzle I can almost guarantee you’re missing? Social media.

“It’s been way too long,” read the press invites for Apple’s iPad Air 2 launch event Thursday. Presumably this was an attempt at a pun on the fact that the new tablet is … thinner?

Nope, that pun doesn’t quite work, and neither did the event — which was easily the most underwhelming example of Apple stagecraft since Gil Amelio was CEO in 1997

Far from giving the impression that it had been too long since it had seen us, this…
