NL Notes: Trippy but true sentence, "Deep breathing calms you down because brain cells spy on your breath." In technology you don't need, but definitely want news, Doppler Labs wants to lower the volume on that crying baby, and any other individual sound element within your vicinity with their bionic earbud, the Here One.  GQ's 25 New Best Stores in the World feature is full of tasteful design and unique retail concepts, weilding 'experience' as brick & mortar's great weapon against the surge of eCommerce. One of our favorites? One Grand Books, a book shop in the Catskills with each shelf curated by literary folks and famous people, answering the question "What 10 Books Would You Bring to a Desert Island?" AIPad's Photography Showcase at Pier 94 in NYC ended yesterday. Here are the '10 Remarkable Photographers' from this year's show. Aaaand Seiko is re-releasing the watch that Steve Jobs famously wore in that photo of him and his apple computer in his living room.Let's rock n' roll. PS, follow us on Instagram & Facebook.
