  • Mighty: “The First On-The-Go Spotify Music Player”

    Mighty: “The First On-The-Go Spotify Music Player”

    Don’t get me wrong – listening to Spotify on my phone is one of the best ways to listen to music, I’ve enhanced many a nighttime walk using this capability. But the simple fact remains that there are times when one wants to bring music – and not one’s phone – out with them. There’s […]

    When I fly, I like to read. But most people prefer to watch movies or TV shows on board, and now Netflix has announced it’s going to get into the in-flight entertainment business.

    Project Invincible: Civilian Body Aromor from McLaren

    A certain rich guy out there – let’s call him Client X, since that’s what McLaren is calling him – wanted to be, for all intents and purposes, invincible.
