Why there’s no Song of Summer for 2015. There are four rules before a track can have it “made in the shade.” Don’t like scary movies? What if the theme was in a major key? We’ll transpose some of the best in fright films. The Apple Watch — for your dog. We’ll introduce you to the Kickstarter campaign “Buddy” — which does more tricks than the Apple Watch. Plus — the winner of our Limited Edition G&B smartphone charger, and China bans 120 pop songs — including one called “Fart.”
