With a simple look, would you like to know how bad the traffic is for your daily commute, how your stocks are doing, or what the weather is doing outside? Well you can with the Nimbus Personal Dashboard ($129) The Nimbus is a 4-dial dashboard that can be customized to provide you with your most important up to date information, like your weather, email, calendar or social media networks. It even works with FitBit to track steps taken, calories burned, and sleep duration. All you have to do is download the wink app, add a new device, enter your wifi information, and connect the Nimbus. Once its connected you can then add the items you want to track and add alarms when thresholds or times are reached. That's pretty much it. The Nimbus works with iOS 6 and above, and Android phones and tablets over OS 2.2.
If you're in the market for a drone you need to check out the indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the PlexiDrone ($699+). The PlexiDrone can snap together and be ready to fly in less than a minute. You can get the standard four prop configuration or you can go to 8 props. The additional propellers allow you to lift up to 3.1 lbs of cargo and tolerate much higher winds. It also comes with a cool looking hardshell backpack which carries everything you need to create awesome aerial films. Additional features include retractable landing gear, so you never have to worry about obstructions in your shot, a follow me feature, and a swarm features which allows you to control multiple drones with a single smartphone. I think I might pass out if one of these bad boys showed up on my christmas tree.
This is the definitive resource for all modern meat lovers.

The Adidas Originals Oregon Ultra (Cardinal/Legend Ink) ($136) are great pair of every day kicks. They feature a nice cardinal red which runs along the top of the upper and is featured on the tongue and as a netting on the midsole, as well as a dark Legend ink around the lower upper. If you want to get a pair in the states you'll have to get them from overseas for now.
Easter Jeep Safari is a 9 day event, that starts off in Moab Utah and consists of trail rides and day long trips. This year it will run from March 28 - April 5th. Every year for the event Jeep unveils new concepts and it looks like they hit a home run this year with their 2015 Jeep Chief Concept ($NFS).The Chief features a vintage look based on Cherokee's from the 1970s. This updated version is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 paired with a six-speed manny. It also includes a two inch-lift kit, Fox shocks, vintage Ocean blue paint, and 17-inch mag wheels.There a currently no plans for this ride to hit production, but I hope car companies are paying attention, because well-built vintage looking cars are awesome. I just wish Landrover kept the same vintage styling for their new Defender release scheduled to hit the U.S.A in 2016. That would've been cooler than the soccer mom version they are releasing.
