Daft Punk Sound Tres Chic In Video Teaser: Hear 15 Seconds Of New Music
Ahhhhhhhhhhh, freak out! Last night during Saturday Night Live, semi-reclusive French duo Daft Punk had 15 seconds of brand new music teased via a mysterious commercial.

Finnish startup Jolla is open for business. That’s the message CEO Marc Dillon was putting out, loud and clear, during two on-stage appearances at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona last week. Not a bad amount of stage time for a first time MWC attendee and a mobile upstart that hasn’t sold a single handset yet because it’s still busy making its first phone.
