Dyson re-invents the fan; makes being a nerd look good

If you’re a nerd – and proud of it – like me, then you’ll probably marvel at the new creation from the brains at Dyson (the people who re-invented the vacuum cleaner a few times):

Roc Nation Aviators by Skullcandy

Most people who know me personally are aware that I am a bit of an audiophile with a reasonably decent music collection – although I’ve never fallen in love with vinyl, so some might claim I’m only a pretender.  That said, I am always interested in finding a new set of headphones and I was impressed enough by the new line being put out by Jay Z’s Roc Nation and Skullcandy to sign-up to buy a set when they’re released in June.

From Skullcandy’s Website:

“Skullcandy strikes an aural coup and announces an unprecedented partnership with Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s groundbreaking music and entertainment company, in a multi-year headphone collaboration project. First up in this trailblazing venture is the Roc Nation Aviator. Designed with top-grade metals, polycarbonate headphone cups, plush, memory foam ear pillows, and finished with premium optics previously only seen in the realm of high-fashion eyewear, the Roc Nation Aviator is the newest World-Class headphone offering presented by Skullcandy.”

It looks pretty decent too; now how about a decent interior?

This was posted under “breaking news” – really?

It is probably fair to admit that I’ve recently accepted a role at a company owned by The Washington Post, but I am a Chicago native and have a soft spot in my heart for most anything having to do with my home town. There’s really not much to say about this link other than the fact that the Chicago Tribune used to be an icon of journalistic integrity that took its role in reporting – and not creating – the news very seriously. Articles titled “Obama heads to the gym for a workout” and “Obamas spend time with neighbors” being listed as breaking news is just silly.
