The Quadrofoil, Plus 10 Things We Want This Week
Ever want to pick up the axe? You might run into on problem many beginners find themselves in: They're surprisingly hard to tune.
Boom. Auto-tune guitar. Don't even have to ask that constantly shirtless Jack Johnson wannabe for help.
Absinthe Kit, $32
A wise man once said that absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.
They go great with getting drunk by a fire.
adizero Tour, $180
By utilizing Adidas' ultra-light technology already used in running shoes and soccer cleats, these puppies only weigh 10.6 ounces. (That's .66 pounds in American.)
New Nike Alabama Jerseys, $TBA
Because some people around here really wouldn't be caught dead in a Notre Dame jersey on Monday.
These Burgers, $10-20
Look, every website on the Internet is giving you tips on how to keep New Year's Resolutions, or whatever. We're here to tell you that if you had “eat well” as one of yours, you should totally break it for one of these monstrosities of beef and cheese. Run, don't walk, to your nearest restaurant. And then walk—for God's sake, don't run—back home to your couch.
The ultimate tool for lazy, yet somewhat knowledgeable, bros, Summly summarizes news stories into two or three sentences, and then delivers them to your phone. Half a million people have already downloaded it.
(On that note, J. Camm highlighted four other quality apps two weeks ago that are also worth checking out.)
I devoured this in a day over the break. You should too. Alan Sepinwall is the best TV critic in the business, and “The Revolution Was Televised” is an insightful look into how television got so damn good over the last few years. Must-read for any “Sopranos,” “Breaking Bad,” “Friday Night Lights,” or “Wire” guys out there.
iPad Leather Sleeve, $70
Because it looks classy as hell.
The Quadrofoil, $19,000
An electric powered watercraft that lets you fly above the water.
- Hit speeds of 25mph
- Run in near-total silence, not including your womanly screams when you hit 25mph whilst whale-flying above the water
- Cover 60+ miles on one charge
- Recharge via either plug, or a row of solar cells built into the hull
- Use a waterproof compartment to store more than three cubic feet of provisions for “day trips” (soggy LSD is gross!)
- Automatically retract those wings to safely navigate rocky areas, or nearby swimmers, whom you'll have to save anyways, as they'll be paralyzed by the sight of your awesome
- Drive comfortably in cold weather thanks to a plastic snap-on cockpit cover
- Also-automatically steady yourself upright after a rollover, which will inevitably happen what with all those obnoxious whales flying all over the place
