Made in the USA - American Manufacturers - Factories - Caterpillar - Olevia - Popular Mechanics



Made in the USA - American Manufacturers - Factories - Caterpillar - Olevia - Popular Mechanics: "At just under 2 pounds, the most feathery titanium bike frames made by the American Bicycle Group nearly float off the workbenches in the company’s factory in Ooltewah, Tenn. “Asian manufacturers don’t have the expertise with titanium we do, and they don’t have the same grade of titanium,” says part-owner and CEO Peter Hurley. “The level of fabrication we have here does not exist anywhere else in the world."

The Magic Wheel goes beyond crystal ball | Car Tech: An automotive blog from CNET - CNET Reviews: "What do you get when you decide that a bicycle needs only one main wheel while declaring that the seat and handles are useless? You get the Magic Wheel, which functions like a foot scooter but looks a little like an Andy Warhol installation."

Acetaia - Power of the Search Engine



A few years back I was in Munich traveling for business and I ate one of the best meals ever. The problem was that I could not for the life of me remember the name of the place and have tried to ask others that are familiar with the area. Nobody could come up with this place. Today I for fun googled, vinegar, munich and italian. WAM, the power of search came up with the place. Now as you can see from the unicycle vid's below I enjoy my food. So trust me you will not be disappointed.



Acetaia - Munich: "Acetaia - Nymphenburgerstr. 215, 80639 Munich, Germany

This has to be one of the most exquisite dining experiences to be had in Munich. It does however come at a price. Three courses, with wine, for 2 people will set you back around €150 but it will be a occasion you will remember for a very long time."

This made me cringe.

Dealzmodo Ahoy: HDTVs Will Get Stupid Cheap Next Month

Dealzmodo Ahoy: HDTVs Will Get Stupid Cheap Next Month: "According to HD Guru, Sony's not content with its less-than-number-one status in flat panels, so it's planning to claw its way back into consumers' hearts with deep price cuts on all of its 2008 models next month. The other guys, like Samsung, LG and Sharp, are already planning their own price war counter-attacks. And then, in reaction to the wave of cheap LCDs, plasma dudes like Panasonic (check our quick and dirty guide to plasmas) will prolly be doing their own slashing. Conclusion: Wait till May to buy an HDTV, 'cause it'll be mucho cheaper."
