How does The Queen spend Mother’s Day?

Prince William gives us a glimpse inside Buckingham Palace, as Prince Charles tries to prepare a royal Mother’s Day breakfast for The Queen.

Social film of the day. Dell - Intel / "What Lives Inside" A First Look

Join director Robert Stromberg behind-the-scenes of Dell's new social film, "What Lives Inside," inspired by Intel Inside, and discover a world beyond your imagination. Premiering March 25th exclusively on hulu. Go to and submit a sketch of a creature and it could make it to the big screen. 

"What Lives Inside" is a new online web series presented by Dell and Intel. The fantastical film is calling out to the audience for sketches so that their character might be selected to star in the film. Sketches will be accepted until March 9. The film will debut March 25th exclusively on Hulu.

  • Dell presents an all-new social film, "What Lives Inside," in collaboration with Intel;
  • Fans can submit character sketches for potential inclusion in the film starting on January 13; first episode of the social film will be streamed exclusively on Hulu on March 25
  • Film stars Colin Hanks, J.K. Simmons and Catherine O’Hara and will be directed by two-time Oscar-winner Robert Stromberg, who last directed "Maleficent"
Dell Inc. today announced a collaboration with Intel Corporation on the latest social film titled, "What Lives Inside," the fourth film of the ‘Inside Films’ series. The film will be directed by two-time Oscar-winner Robert Stromberg ("Maleficent") and stars Colin Hanks (TV’s "Fargo"), J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") and Catherine O’Hara("Best In Show"), along with the world’s thinnest tablet, the new Dell Venue 8 7000 Series tablet with Intel® RealSense™ snapshot and an Intel® AtomTM processor. The series will debut on March 25 exclusively on Hulu, and new episodes will premiere for four weeks. Starting May 6, the full series will be available on and on YouTube.
‘Inside Films’ is the longest-running branded content series and has adopted a new genre and social activation each time ranging from thriller, romance, science fiction and now fantasy. This year’s social component involves Stromberg inviting the public to collaborate with him to complete the film by submitting character sketches and drawings for potential inclusion in the story. Submissions will be accepted on from Jan. 13 through March 9, and the winning drawings will be handpicked by Stromberg to appear in the film.
The film centers around Taylor (Hanks), the son of an absentee father who finds himself on a journey of self discovery. His father (Simmons) was a well-known and acclaimed children’s puppeteer who was widely celebrated for his creativity. After his passing, Taylor discovers a mysterious world of his dad’s creation and finds himself on an adventure that will soon unlock his own creativity. The Intel-powered Dell Venue 8 7000 Series tablet with Intel® RealSense™ snapshot will play a critical character in the film, accompanying Taylor on every step of the journey and helping to unlock his creativity. Integrated into the viewing experience in an organic manner, the product’s unique features become the perfect tools for the emerging artist in Taylor to showcase his work. The stunning organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) infinity edge-to-edge screen with more than 4 million pixels captures the rich and saturated colors of his creations. The tablet is also the first to integrate the Intel® RealSense™ Snapshot technology that captures a depth map for every picture taken, allowing Taylor to make instant measurements on his journey.
"The story has become a very personal journey for me," said Stromberg. "As a working father in Hollywood, I can relate to the father’s struggles in the movie, which made me very passionate about how the characters evolved. I am also extremely excited about the prospect of directing a social film and find myself daily thinking of ways to increase fan involvement in the film. This unique format will allow us to bridge the emotional and fantasy elements to create something not only unforgettable, but personal."
"Dell’s commitment to innovation is brought to life stunningly through the lens of ‘What Lives Inside,’" said Marissa Tarleton, executive director of Consumer and Small Business, North America Marketing for Dell. "Working with Intel on this project will allow us to continue to inspire consumers, foster creativity among social film fans new and old, and promote the new wave of computing among these communities. Our products have always been at the forefront of innovation and now, through the ‘Inside Films’ series, we have been able to showcase a unique approach to marketing products to consumers."
This is the first time Dell has collaborated with an award-winning director and cast to produce a Hollywood-quality film. The series, now in its fourth year, has worked with a range of top talent. Past films have featured Hollywood stars such as Harvey Keitel, Emmy Rossum and Topher Grace, and the films have repeatedly won the admiration of Emmy and Cannes committees as well as over 200 million viewers worldwide.
"This social film provides an engaging and unique way to showcase the capabilities of the Intel RealSense technology through the Dell Venue 8 7000 series," said Doug Parker, vice president of Intel Partner Marketing.

Touching ad of the day. Samsung - Hearing Hand


Samsung’s latest spot from Leo Burnett Istanbul advertising their video call centers is winning hearts and racking up views all over the world.
The ad tells the story of Muharrem Yazgan, a deaf Istanbul man who is surprised to find as he walks through town with his sister that everyone he meets greets and communicates with him in sign language.
Finally, a woman from a Samsung call center – signing on screen at a kiosk in a public square – lets Muharrem in on the secret as he breaks into a wide grin and sheds a few tears: Leo Burnett set up hidden cameras along the route of Muharrem’s errands and organized all the neighbors and shopkeepers, who spent a month learning sign language to pull off this act of kindness.
This spot shows the difference that a human connection can make to one generally isolated man, which is what Samsung hopes its video call centers do for all their hearing impaired customers.
Released earlier this week, the ad already has more than 5.6 million views on YouTube, has earned coverage from NPRTIME and PC Magazine, among others, and was at one point the no. 2 trending story on Buzzfeed.

Italian ad of the day. The Perfect Woman - Acqua Vitasnella

Tutti sembrano voler dire alle donne come dovrebbero essere. Ma cosa succederebbe se le donne li ascoltassero davvero? Guarda l’esperimento di live mapping 3D realizzato da Acqua Vitasnella per celebrare la bellezza delle donne. #MeStessaAlMeglio 

Vitasnella lancia così un messaggio rivolto alla sensibilità femminile: inutile sforzarsi di piacere a tutti e plasmarsi ai giudizi degli altri, la bellezza perfetta non esiste e ogni donna potrà essere sempre bellissima essendo semplicemente se stessa, al meglio. 

Everyone seems to tell women how they should be. What if women really listened to them? Watch live 3D mapping experiment realized by Acqua Vitasnella to celebrate women’s beauty. #MeStessaAlMeglio

With this video, Vitasnella launches a message towards female sensibility: it is useless to force oneself to be liked by everybody, adapting to other people’s judgments. The perfect beauty does not exist and every woman will always be beautiful by simply being herself, at best.

Video of the day. Discovery Channel - Large Asteroid Impact Simulation

● Discovery Channel - Large Asteroid Impact Simulation (2008).

Earth was born as a result of repeated asteroid collisions, the moon was created by a single giant impact event. Then, Earth's size attracted huge meteorites, which slammed into it, causing super-high-temperature rock vapour to cover the entire surface and evaporate all ocean water. The earliest life-forms survived such infernal events by escaping deep into the ground, miraculously emerging again and again. The Earth has gone through innumerable catastrophic events, and life has survived by acquiring new abilities to live through each crisis. Humans are part of the grand history of life's evolution, which has been closely intertwined with repeated cataclysmic events.

Learn what would happen if an asteroid hit the Earth with this detailed "Large Asteroid Impact Simulation".
An asteroid with a diameter of 500 km. Destination: The Pacific Ocean. The impact peels the 10 km crust off the surface. The shockwave travels at hypersonic speeds. Debris is blasted across into low Earth orbit, and returns to destroy the surface of the Earth. The firestorm encircles the Earth, vaporizing all life in its way. Within one day, the surface of the Earth is uninhabitable. The evidence shows that this has happened at least six times in Earth's history.

● Discovery Channel - Simulazione di impatto con un asteroide di grandi dimensioni (2008).

La Terra è nata a seguito di ripetute collisioni di asteroidi, la luna è stata creata da un singolo impatto gigantesco. Poi, le dimensioni della Terra hanno attratto enormi meteoriti, che si sono schiantate su di essa, causando vapori di roccia ad altissima temperatura che hanno ricoperto l'intera superficie e fatto evaporare tutta l'acqua dell'oceano. Le prime forme di vita sono sopravvissute a tali eventi infernali fuggendo in profondità nel terreno, emergendo miracolosamente ancora e ancora. La Terra è passata attraverso innumerevoli eventi catastrofici, e la vita è sopravvissuta attraverso l'acquisizione di nuove capacità per vivere attraverso ogni crisi. Gli esseri umani sono parte della grande storia dell'evoluzione della vita, che è stata strettamente intrecciata con ripetuti eventi catastrofici.

Apprendi che cosa accadrebbe se un asteroide colpisse la Terra, con questa dettagliata "Simulazione di impatto con un asteroide di grandi dimensioni".
Un asteroide con un diametro di 500 km. Destinazione: l'Oceano Pacifico. L'impatto spella i 10 km di crosta via dalla superficie. L'onda d'urto viaggia a velocità ipersonica. I detriti vengono scagliati tutti in orbita terrestre bassa, e ritornano per distruggere la superficie della Terra. La tempesta di fuoco circonda la Terra, vaporizzando tutta la vita in questo modo. Entro un giorno, la superficie della Terra è inabitabile. Le prove dimostrano che questo è avvenuto almeno sei volte nella storia della Terra.
