"Today, we are launching the biggest advancement in the history of iPhone," Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said.
Apple said it plans to sell the larger 5.5-inch model starting at $299 with a two-year carrier contract, higher than the $199 price for its current high-end iPhone 5S. The company said the 4.7-inch iPhone will start at $199 with a contract.
The company said the new phones come with many hardware improvements, including a sharper display, better battery life and improved camera performance.
The most noticeable upgrade for phones is the larger displays. Apple has stuck with a smaller display for its iPhone, even as competitors started making larger screens a standard feature for high-end phones.

We had the pleasure to listen in on a call with the amazing talent LAMAR STARZZ. Do not sleep on his music this is who is UP NEXT for the industry. #NTFR - NO TIME FOR REST
A true Capricorn at heart, he’s nurturing and aims to please, with an edge. Growing up in the streets of New York, with 5 younger sisters, Lamar says he always had to be the protector of the house. He’s risen from a rough upbringing in a positive way and I’m sure his mother is extremely proud of the young man she’s raised. An artist, dancer, and actor who didn’t even think he could sing until a classmate overheard him singing Dru Hill’s "Beauty Is Her Name" at 14. When you’re in his presence and he’s singing his heart out, you can feel the raw emotion in his voice. The pain in his soul pours out, forcing you to listen to what he’s saying. That voice is a force to be reckoned with and an amazing gift. I wouldn’t really call Lamar the next best (insert your favorite singer here) because as he always says, no one is singing like this. His voice is completely different, and while his songs are about the standard love, sex, struggle and heartache like most singers, his delivery is entirely more powerful. He’s relatable, he’s charming, and he puts God and his family first!
Atlanta has become a 2nd home and one of the best power moves Lamar could’ve made for his career. Delante Murphy, Bobby Fisher and Kirk Lee (D2 Music Mgmt. / Majestic Multimedia) all shaped and molded the man & woman Trey Songz and K.Michelle respectfully is today, and luckily for Lamar, they’re molding him now. He’s in great hands and he’s confident in what he brings to the table.

Singer-songwriter Eryn Bent has been enchanting audiences since age 14, with her powerhouse vocals and honest, gritty songwriting.
Born and raised in Montana, Eryn has deep Western roots that shine through her Indie Folk-style songwriting. She has played all over the West coast, forever planting her musical magic in the hearts of those who listen to her.
As well as being a folk singer, Eryn is also a trained operatic/classical vocalist, which gives her the incredible range and ability to showcase her vocals in many evocative ways. She has written and released three independent albums, and has most recently completely her first studio album, recorded by Jono Manson at the Kitchen Sink Studios. Featuring 11 originals songs and produced by Ms. Bent herself, "Firefly" will not disappoint. The album will be released in May 2014.
Impassioned performance is Eryn’s goal for every musical venture.
Eryn's most recent endeavor has been rehearsing and playing shows with The Troupe Red, her band featured on "Firefly", whose members consist of: Justin Bransford on bass, Jon Myers on bass (ABQ), Jeff Sussman on drums, Bob Bruen on mandolin, Caitlin Thomas on violin, Lisa Carman and Adrienne Bellis on harmony vocals, and Eryn fronting the Troupe on rhythm guitar and vocals. (Jono Manson is also featured in several tracks on "Firefly"). You can catch Eryn Bent & The Troupe Red playing shows around Santa Fe & Albuquerque, gearing up for the much anticipated album release.

Instagram, the rapidly-growing photo sharing community, can boost your business’s exposure, increase brand recognition and build demand for your products and services. With over 100 million users, businesses are increasingly turning to Instagram to engage consumers and boost their brands. The image-based social network, available on iPhone and Android smartphones, boasts more than 100 million users.Many brands like Starbucks, MTV and some others are the most successful Instagrammers. You can use the best practices in order to see how to build your community.
1. Show Your Products.Promote mobile window-shopping by using Instagram to show off a collection of your products. Photos attract users, but conversations engage them. If your small business is service-oriented, show off the supplies and equipment that are essential to the services you provide. For example, show off your favourite workout gear if fitness is your business, or reveal you’re most impressive lenses if you are a photographer.
2. Show What Your Products Can Do.Use Instagram to increase demand by showing customers ways to use your products. Engage your followers by inviting user-generated content. Conduct a Instagram Contest in order to engage your target. The users can share their photos using your product on them. If your business is service-oriented, show the impact of your work with before and after shots (interior design, makeup).
3. Show How It’s Made.Customers have a natural curiosity about where their products come from, and you can use Instagram to show the origins of all their favorite products. Make photos during the manufacturing process, include also planning and delivery.
4. Introduce Your Employees.Introducing your followers to the people who keep your company going humanizes your brand. Cast the Instagram spotlight on special employees, and use the caption to share a bit about the employee. Make spotlighting an ongoing campaign that features staff from different departments within your company to put a human face on your brand.
5. Expand your audience.Connect Instagram to your other social networks and use relevant hashtags (#yourbrandhere) to make it easier for people to find your account.
6. Communicate directly with users.Ask questions in your photo caption, and respond to comments.
7. Make users anticipate.Share teaser photos that satisfy curiosity but build anticipation for your new releases, office openings or stores. Keeping customer interest is an essential part of an effective marketing campaign. Reward your loyal followers by letting them be the first to know about new products, services or events.

An electronic press kit is a must for anyone seeking exposure and publicity as an artist. You can send your electronic press kit to music industry professionals, clubs, media or anybody who might be interested in your work. EPK is your professional resume to the world.
Did you know that most EPK's end up being deleted? The main reason is either they are too fancy with too little information or are filled with too much useless information. The idea is to create an EPK that is simple and to the point. Here are some tips that will help you to create a good EPK.
Make sure your EPK has the following elements: contact information, short biography, your pictures, quotes from people about your work, press coverage, gig or show information (if applicable) and links to your professional work (audio, video, images or texts).
Contact information: This should clearly state where can you be reached, your phone numbers, emails, postal address and link to your website (if you have one).
Keep the biography short. Your biography should include where you are based and a brief sketch about your professional work. For musicians or bands, also include all band members and instruments that are played. Please do not make this long and do not bore your reader with details of your struggle or other irrelevant de
Provide links to your professional work: Links to your professional videos and audios or professional images for models, photographers, painters. Make sure that all links are working and are of good quality.
Add professional pictures. Especially applicable to those who are rock bands or actor or models. Try to get a professional to shoot you and include 2-3 pictures in your EPK.
Include a few quotes from other professionals in your field that have something positive to say about your work. Do not make the mistake of providing quotes from friends or family. If you are just starting out then try to get quotes from your teachers or professors.
Add any gig/tour/show information: Mention any past or upcoming gigs/tours or shows (paintings/photographers).

LIVE COVERAGE / INTERVIEWS
By Jared Brown on September 3, 2013
You’ve seen her on your Tumblr dashboard, your Instagram feeds, your Twitter timelines giving you some food for thought, also might’ve seen her on Esquire as well. Daisy Espana, better known as Stacey Hash, sat down with Ducketz to discuss her love for Hip-Hop, modeling and more. Read the full interview below.
Def Pen Radio: I know you as Daisy, others know you more so as Stacey Hash. Introduce the two to our readers.
Stacey Hash: Daisy is who I am, it’s what my close friends and family know me as. Stacey Hash is my alter ego; she’s wild and doesn’t have a care in the world.
Def Pen Radio: Now, you’re from the Bay area, and I’ll be coming that way soon, what’s some of the good spots to eat at?
Stacey Hash: You must try Cha Cha Cha on Haight St — the best Caribbean food hands down and a personal favorite of mines.
Def Pen Radio: You’ve built a huge presence online which has opened many doors for you. Is modeling something you always envisioned?
Stacey Hash: I used to hate taking pictures when I was younger. As I started getting older, people started asking me to shoot for their look-books/events, and from there it just became something I loved to do.
Def Pen Radio: Being in the public domain, so-to-speak, what you do feel is the biggest misconception?
Stacey Hash: People always think I’m the stuck-up model-type and when they meet me they’re taken back because I’m the complete opposite. I like that element of surprise though.
Def Pen Radio: Hip-Hop recently turned 40, when did you fall in love with Hip Hop?
Stacey Hash: The first time I heard Nas’ “I AM” album I was 13 yrs old. I just remember laying in my room listening to everything Nas was rapping about with a dictionary next to me because I didn’t know some of the things he was spitting. Since that day he’s been my favorite lyrical artist.
Def Pen Radio: Pretty sure everyone knows you’re a huge Nas fan, what song made you say, “this dude is ill”?
Stacey Hash: “Undying Love”. When I first heard that song I felt like I was watching a really good movie that I didn’t want to end. His wordplay in the song is crazy. Still a favorite ’til this day.
Def Pen Radio: Now, love brings pain — when has Hip-Hop ever broke your heart?
Stacey Hash: Yes, when it became too accessible. It was like watching a good girl gone bad right before my eyes.
Def Pen Radio: You’re very big on instrumentals, who are some of your favorite producers?
Stacey Hash: Alchemist, J.Dilla, Pharrell, Timbaland — huge fan of Cardo, also.
Def Pen Radio: Few weeks back you sent out a tweet admitting Jay-Z is the G.O.A.T., where did that come from?
Stacey Hash: I went to the legends of summer tour Jay/Justin Timberlake were headlining. Just being in the same arena with Jay and watching how he worked the crowd is very inspiring. And, not to mention, he’s got hits for days.
Def Pen Radio: How did your followers on Twitter feel about that tweet? [Laughs]
Stacey Hash: My followers already know. I mean the Nas/Jay debate can go on for days, but they’re both the G.O.A.T’s.
Def Pen Radio: What was your take on Magna Carta: Holy Grail?
Stacey Hash: Great replay value. Overall, it was a solid album.
Def Pen Radio: Big Sean recently released his track “Control” with Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica, what was your initial reaction?
Stacey Hash: I was excited! It’s been awhile since a record has made me excited!
Def Pen Radio: Of course there are many talented artists in this new generation of Hip-Hop, do you feel K. Dot is the leader of the pack?
Stacey Hash: Absolutely, I think him and Drake are the best artists right now.
Def Pen Radio: The “I’m the king of New York” line really ruffled some feathers, what’s your take on the New York rap scene?
Stacey Hash: I respect K.Dot for that. He’s trying to bring back hip-hop to the state it used to be. Hip-Hop as of late has been all production, no lyrical content. It’s time to get rappers off Twitter and into the booth.
Def Pen Radio: I can talk Hip-Hop all day with you, I’m curious to know what’s in your R&B catalog as of now?
Stacey Hash: The Weeknd & Miguel stay on rotation. I really like BJ the Chicago kid as well, he’s really soulful.
Def Pen Radio: For some, music is important in the bedroom. Are you big on tunes in the room?
Stacey Hash: I’m actually not! I make my own music in the bedroom. [Laughs]
Def Pen Radio: From knowing you over the years, you’ve always been very chill. Are you the controlling type in the bedroom or submissive?
Stacey Hash: I like to switch it up, so really it depends on my mood.
Def Pen Radio: Now, I know a lot of guys are reading this (women too), but what kind of guys attract you?
Stacey Hash: My best advice to men out there is: BE YOURSELF. I love individuality, confidence is very sexy to me as well. Our generation is filled with followers, but I like a leader.
Def Pen Radio: Before we go, I’m going to quote 3 of your tweets that stood out to me, and I want you to decode them as they relate to you.
Def Pen Radio: “Don’t sell your mystery”
Stacey Hash: It’s ok for people not to know everything about you!
Def Pen Radio: “if I could ignore myself I would”
Stacey Hash: I have the most interesting conversations with myself, sometimes good, sometimes bad. The not-so-good I wish I could ignore.
Def Pen Radio: “It’s all for chills & thrills”
Stacey Hash: - That’s what life is about.
