November may not have had the same celebrity tech impact as October, but it was still a worthwhile month. Designers partnered with eBay to offer the Holiday Collective: a limited-edition collection of customized tech bracelets. Kia was the major sponsor behind the first YouTube Awards, and the hamsters along with some famous musical performers, graced the stage at a pre-show to the live event. Meanwhile, Amazon is continuing on their hot streak of innovation, and Alpha Dogs was the latest success story from the online retailer. It certainly seems like Amazon is looking to nip at the heels of Netflix’s current winning streak with original content, and so far Amazon seems to be succeeding.
Also, you might have heard Lady Gaga’s Artpop debuted last month, with a whole concept that is a mix of art, pop culture, and technology. In other music news, Macklemore rocked the hour at the Xbox One launch in New York City. Lastly, if you are in need of some audio gear – Harman Kardan launched a flagship in Manhattan that will offer just about everything you need to fill your head with music.
