For those in the Northern Hemisphere winter is coming, and with it, all kinds of interesting and creative jackets that are ready to keep you warm. This hooded down jacket certainly takes the title of most interesting looking jacket we've seen for a while. It has a built-in goggle system that covers your whole head and face, keeping your upper body completely shielded from the elements.
In the tablet market, the iPad is still the undisputed leader. One of the ways that Apple retained that status was this year's introduction of a lower-priced iPad 2. Though its US$400 price tag is still enough to buy two Kindle Fires, it let Cupertino at least approach budget tablet territory. With next week's launch of a smaller iPad, though, we may soon bid farewell to the iPad 2.
I hope you all got a chance to carve pumpkins and let them rot and throw them away before duct-taping your doors and eyelids shut and hiding in your toilets in preparation for the storm! There would be few things worse right now than to be stuck in an apartment with a rotting pumpkin, and I have to imagine you can’t throw them away now or else they’ll fly out of the garbage can and into someone’s car or home, right? Don’t throw them away, keep them inside & put them in the oven! Unless you somehow also constructed a playable Tetris game out of your pumpkin — in that case keep it out of the oven and play with it with your loved ones, hugging them every so often and telling them how much you love and appreciate them and how nice it was to have them in your life.
