Don’t Call It A Comeback
Much like your return to the competitive world of badminton after a long hiatus (pulled groin…still hard to think about), Tiger Woods is back in pouncing position and hoping to gain some serious momentum, with a little help from Nike Golf. The Innovation Kitchen at Nike has developed a Nike Free Golf Shoe Prototype specifically for Tiger Woods that has yet to be named. It features the sensibilities and performance enhancements of Nike Free’s “natural motion” technology, designed to deliver the protection and traction of a lightweight performance shoe while mimicking and conforming to the natural motion of the foot. Add more Nike technology to that, like Flywire and Hyperfuse-like uppers, and these badboys might just slingshot Tiger back to the top of the heap. No word yet on Nike’s commitment to developing technology for your groin-stretcher, but we’re sure they’re working on it.
Usually, your personal mechanics have your Spada TS Codatronca, Maserati Grancabrio Sport and Mercedes Mclaren SLR in such tip top shape that you’ll never need a jump yourself, but you never know when you’ll come across a damsel in distress in need of some quick juice. Keep some Michelin 5100 Smart Jumper Cables ($100) handy, just in case. These heavy-duty 8-gauge, copper-clad, aluminum, 12’ cables take all the guess-work out of jumper cables, by automatically indicating a proper connection, and adjusting polarity to eliminate shorting or sparking. They’re even stored in a sleek box that contains a built-in surge protector to safeguard your car’s electronics. Dare we say these beauties are idiot-proof, and damsel-in-distress-approved.
Not that you’d ever admit this to anyone, but deep down remains the undeniable truth: your favorite Spice Girl was Sporty Spice. There’s just something about sportiness that you respect. You understand. You downright love. So you’ll love the super sporty Ducati 1199 Panigale ($23,000). This 361-pounder has a twin-cylinder engine with 195 hp, ABS, traction control, suspension with electronic settings, electronic throttle control and a quick-shift system that optimizes the gear shifts. Lemme hear you say, “If you wanna be my lover…”
The You View-Finder
You’ve had your fair share of fabulous views. Northern Lights from an ice cave in Greenland. Next to the stage at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Backstage at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. No doubt the sights you’ve seen are those that should be shared with mankind—in 3D. And now they can be, with the help of the Image 3D Viewer ($25.00). This whimsical, red, plastic viewfinder of yesteryear no longer only holds images of scenes out of Scooby Doo or Looney Tunes, but your very own cherished photos and memories, almost exactly as you remember them. Throw in a spritz of some Chanel No. 5 and it’ll be just like you’re backstage with Adriana again.
