I don’t think this would save your head from a crush-type injury. But this stylish helmet alternative looks like it would preserve your head and neck from an impact.
Side note – bike wrecks in slow-mo are crazy interesting.
Cool design. I have to say though, I think Bjork was on to this way before these guys.
You may have missed the world wide celebration last night. Perhaps you saw the fireworks and the Thunderbirds flying overhead with red, white and blue smoke and had no clue what was going on.
The Oklahoman is [now] available @ the Barnes & Noble eNewspaper store.
That’s it? Yep, that’s really it. You could stop reading here. If you are like me you probably will. If you have a nook you are now informed. Go get your newspaper. If you were teetering in a buying decision, you now have no excuse.
If you have nothing else to do … keep reading.
The nook was exciting a year ago. The press called it a kindle killer, etc … etc …
Then in the spring of 2010 the iPad came along and just sort of eclipsed everything … At least I think it did.
You know I gush over Apple products … It’s easy for me to assume that since my iPad is so snazzy and can do so much … no one can seriously be thinking of buying an eReader still. Can they?
I went to Barnes &Noble off Memorial this week to tell them about The Oklahoman being available and to replace the battery on our nook. They were excited. They said a number of buyers ask when The Oklahoman will be available on the nook.
Anyway, the store has enlarged their nook presence. It’s like a little Apple Store. Lots of tables and lots of nooks to try out. They even have a nook genius … or at least someone that knows more about the nook than I do. (thanks Lori for your help with the battery)
Being there and seeing this made me reconsider or remember something I already knew. Technology enables choice.
$149 for a wifi nook that does one thing very well –> easy
I’m going to avoid comparing the nook to the iPad because I’m chicken and other people have already tried. The argument FAILs because … the nook and iPad are not even in the same class. Basically the nook is the equivalent of a single app on the iPad that does one thing really well, out in the sun, all day on one charge.
Having realized that the world is filled with choice, I shamelessly invite the people that care about “just reading” and want or own a nook to give The Oklahoman a spin.
By the way, the nook software for the iPad is quite good. So if you want to check out The Oklahoman on the nook on the iPad … be my guest. After all, we just tell the stories. You get to choose where to read them.
