Is your phone spying on you? "This new generation of -user-friendly spy-phone software has become widely available in the last year—and it confers stunning powers. The latest programs can silently turn on handset microphones even when no call is being made, allowing a spy to listen to voices in a room halfway around the world. Targets are none the wiser: neither call logs nor phone bills show records of the secretly transmitted data."

Interview magazine reads the tea leaves and gets a redesign for its April issue, less than a year after their last redesign, WWD reports:

"The changes just keep coming at Interview, with more staff appointments and yet another new look. The April issue will unveil a different logo and layout crafted by new design team M/M Paris (the handwritten logo is actually influenced by the logo used in the Seventies). The duo took over in February after Interview parted ways with co-editorial director Fabien Baron and creative director Karl Templer, and clearly M/M Paris has wasted no time in undoing the work Baron and Templer had done. They’d introduced their own new look for the title a mere eight months ago. Interview also named Joe McKenna as fashion director to replace Templer. McKenna had been a freelance stylist working on various fashion and lifestyle titles."

Fabien Baron Looks Back for Calvin Klein Man with Garrett Neff

Garrettneff_2

Photographer Fabien Baron wanted to recall Bruce Weber's iconic 80's ads for Calvin Klein underwear in his depiction of model Garrett Neff for the new fragrance Calvin Klein Man: "With Calvin Klein Man we wanted to create a modern version of the original Calvin Klein point of view, where men were strong, masculine and powerful."

Of course, because there were so few blatant objectification of male beauty back then, the Weber ads became (for burgeoning adolescent gay boys like myself) a kind of covert porn and made a more striking impact than most ads can these days. Not that I'm complaining about Baron's nostalgic look back at the fashion gods of yesteryear...
