New rumors (via The Verge) from the Portable Audio Festival this weekend in Japan have suggested that in 2016 Apple Music could introduce the streaming of high-resolution audio, along with positioning the Lightning connector over the 3.5mm headphone jack to do so.
The reports suggest 96kHz / 24-bit music streaming, which many headphone manufacturers are said to be preparing for with upcoming models featuring Lightning connectors.

High-resolution audio, whose benefits are at best dubious, can of course be conveyed via the conventional 3.5mm headphone jack, but it appears that Apple and its hardware partners are betting on using the more advanced Lightning port. It allows for...

$248 million is the final weekend domestic box office numbers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is an upward adjustment of $10 million from yesterday's press release.
The new exact total number then is $247,966,675 in domestic box office for the opening weekend. That beats the six-month old record of Jurassic World's $208.8 million by about $40 million, around a 20% increase. The expectation is that this record is nearly break-proof, or certainly won't be broken in the next 6 months, at least. That also includes the global opening weekend record, set at $529 million.

Teppei talks about Thrice's "Deadbolt" on their website.
It’s funny how this song has become such a staple and fan favorite (I hate that term…is there a better one?). I remember coming up with the main riff noodling around in my room on an acoustic. I started playing a little hokey number and it took shape as the main riff. I found it kinda funny - I was imagining a foot stompin’ country hoedown with that riff on a banjo. I’m not sure when it occurred to me that it could be played on electric guitar and could potentially be a heavy-ish riff, but it did and here we are now. I have to admit I resented playing the song for a period of time–I don’t think I ever really took it that...
