A Tarantino box set containing Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, Death Proof and Inglorious Basterds would, by itself be awesome.

Let’s see if we can get you excited about a lightbulb. This one is powered by an app that let’s you control lighting in your home from your iPhone or Android device.

Fluid lines on the exterior, incredible high-tech design inside, and the potent performance of a low-emission, 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain make this mid-size coupe a far cry from those wimpy 1st-gen hybrids we drove out of nothing but sheer guzzler’s guilt.
