Skullcandy and legendary snowboard brand Burton launch new collaboration

If you were around at the dawn of the snowboarding age, the Burton brand probably holds a special place in your heart. Founded in 1977 in the U.S., it was one of the sport’s very first manufacturers and remains one of the largest snowboard companies on the planet. Today, Burton is lending its distinctive mountain logo and flashy graphics to a new collaboration with Skullcandy for a limited release of three of the latter’s wireless headphone and earbud models.

The Crusher Evo, Push Active, and Mod are now available with graphics torn from Burton’s Rewind and Name Dropper board designs, which feature asymmetrical patterns of peach, pink, and purple cheetah print on one side and olive green on the other. Only 4,000 of each model will be made.

Though identical in function to the normal versions of these products, the limited editions carry a $10 price premium.

With Apple, it's always a guessing game as to what it will (and won't) announce at its events, and the rumor mill sometimes has trouble keeping up. As recently as two days ago, observers were running with the idea that Apple would be taking the wraps off its updated news service at an event scheduled for March 25.  No new devices were expected to be revealed, but now it's quite possible the event could include the launch of the company's video-streaming service too, according to a report by Bloomberg, which claims that A-list celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, and director J.J. Abrams have been invited by Apple to attend.

The report goes on to offer some more details around the streaming service itself, which will apparently bear similarities to both Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. According to Bloomberg, it will "include TV shows and movies either acquired or funded by Apple. The company has created dozens of original programs so far, but hasn’t wrapped them in a subscription yet. The paid service will launch by the summer, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing private plans."
