Like everyone, we’re still waiting to find out when Sony’s PS Vita will hit stores. But here’s what we can share about this new handheld addiction device: there will be two models, the “wi-fi only” version will be $250 and the slightly badder-ass 3G model will be $300. Sony has been bragging for months about the touch interactivity & motion that supposedly smokes the 3DS. When the release date is announced, we’ll be camped out in line at the big box store. See you there.
Mosh? Maybe in his Pearl Jam days, but has Eddie Vedder ever made you want to hula? Probably not. And he won’t on this new solo record of, as the name suggests, ukulele songs. This material puts Vedder’s familiar heartfelt lyricism to the rustic twang of a ukulele. Yeah, Eddie surfs, but this ain’t beach music.
These days, wearing a watch has nothing to do with telling the time. Everyone has a phone or computer staring back at them for that info. Wearing a watch is purely symbolic. March Lab has been producing ‘Swiss Made’ watches since before the cellphone took over time and they’ll keep making them, like the JC-1 Shadowplay. Simple, refined and elegant. And, it will never ring in the middle of dinner.
Dad taught you to throw a spiral. Coach taught you to respect the game. Now, you’re teaching your friends how to tailgate like real men. To keep it all going, you need a Leather Head football.

The city of San Francisco is pretty close to the mountains. This is great for upstart backpack brand Boreas. It means easy access for R&D test missions.

For the most part, having a beard is all fun & games. Until it starts stinking. You know, the real raunchy beard-stank you get after a brutal workout or a long day at the mattress factory? Sort of smells like Indian food and fungus? You never noticed it? Really? Well, other people definitely have. Maybe now is a good time to get some all-natural cedarwood beard oil.
Superman is about the closest thing Americans have to a mythological god. You could say this 8-Disc Blu-Ray set is his bible. It has all the feature films from 1976-2006 plus cartoons, trailers & 20 hours of bonus features. Get through all this material and you’ll be a biblical scholar. Kinda-sorta.
Year after year, Mercedes earns the worst emissions ratings for their iconic line of cars. Maybe that’s what motivated them to start making bikes. A little trade-off to make up for the turboed-out V12s and such. The bikes are top quality, not just a pretty logo. They make a racer, a full-suspendo mountain bike and a few others—even a kids bike.
