Here’s an early look at the 2012 BMW ActiveHybrid 5. This will be BMW’s first crack at a more moderately priced, mainstream hybrid vehicle. Based on the BMW 5 Series, the car is powered by the same 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged inline-six-cylinder found in the BMW 535i. On top of the conventional components will be a 55-horsepower electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack.
Before the days of sexual harassment sensitivity training, men were allowed to look at cartoon illustrations of women accidentally showing too much leg without fear of punishment. Taschen Books has now collected heaps of these classic yet demeaning, sexist images in a new book for you to enjoy privately in the appropriate environment.
Putting your “Scary Sounds of Halloween” mix-tape on loop and blasting it from the living room on Halloween night is cute. Why are you trying to be cute? Terrorize treat-seekers and become “that creepy guy down the street” with the Asylum Door.

Sure, some may be disappointed that Apple’s latest iPhone wasn’t completely revamped, but it would be a mistake to call it a “minor” refresh. A greatly enhanced 8 megapixel camera with all-new optics, beefy A5 dual-core processor and smartly designed inbuilt voice command should provide plenty of reason for the masses to upgrade. Pre-order begins October 7 and release is set for October 14.
The term “disposable income” is a relatively new one. One we sorely needed. How else would someone justify/explain/laugh after dropping five hundo on something like a custom-built rubber band shooting Gatling gun with a 144-round capacity?
Let’s face it, when you’re trying to squeeze in nine before work, you don’t have time to play Mr. Rogers with your spikes. The new Street model from Adidas will go from the car to the cart in seconds flat. They are also 85% less ugly than normal golf shoes. Bonus!
