Xetum Tyndall Limited Edition

We reviewed Xetum’s Tyndall and Stinson timepieces shortly after they stepped out on the watch scene and appreciated both models’ blend of California design and Swiss-made guts.

The Whip of Choice for Baller Sith Lords

Aston Martin Limited Edition Carbon Black Vantage

The self-proclaimed auto industry-obsessed Autoblog has surfaced another ridiculous spectacle in the world of luxury sports cars. It’s distinguished from standard Aston Martin V12 Vantage sport coupes by its sinister black metallic finish, which apparently looks different depending on the viewing angle and requires over 50 man hours to apply. The inside naturally also received…

Limited Edition Massimo Vignelli 1972 New York Subway Map

[click on image to enlarge] I read magazines back to front. It’s a peculiar quirk of mine and there is no explanation. Sometimes it yields surprises – like the arrival of this month’s issue of Men’s Vogue. When I opened the back cover I was greeted with a fold out of the Massimo Vignelli designed…

Gears of War 2 Limited Edition

Gears of War was reason enough to own an Xbox 360. The announced Gears of War 2 is more along the lines of a requirement. The epic saga continues with Marcus Fenix and the Delta Squad mired in an even more impossibly outrageous situation against the Locust Horde. Sure, it’s all for the survival of…
