You could carry a penny for good luck, and it started when pay-phones were still ubiquitous and hadn't yet been raised to a quarter, the penny loafer was often the source of funds for an emergency phone call home, especially for school-age children or teens on dates. (More from Zappos)

Found this very interesting that is very cheap, powerful and customizable. Yet, it got a bright opportunity to growth and evolve.
Importantly I like their intention. Their real reason to create such good products.
As a summary, it is a PC system board about your palm size and enable you to do a lot of thing on it. It takes only SD card to run its Linux based operating system. The exciting part, they are working out to port Android OS to run on it :)
It actually come with the system board only. However, it does include a lot of option whether you require casing, SD card that preloaded with OS, HDMI cable and so on.
I just placed order here for the system board and I believe I can get a lot of the accessories easily around my place.

A very nice own DIY casing for the Raspberry Pi which I found on their website. Is a very details step by step guide. I just wish that I still keep my LEGO sets :)

Trying it on our usual Sunday run. Very heavy but every stride is stable and comfortable.
Other color that I feel nice too.
Pricing ? RM399. After discount RM249. Definitely worth it if think of trail or hiking.

Please forgive my New Balance syndrome again! Haha.. I think I should write this as a fan since they are celebrating the 30 years of manufacturing at United Kingdom in 2012.
I won't write too much about their history here to avoid your complain or assumed I'm paid to promote NB. LOL~ Well you still can read the story via the link provided later. Thing that really impressed me is the way they come out these 'collaboration' models. Not picking a celebrity, super star or model, fashion designers or any professional athletes but their own factory workers. 3 of their most senior staffs in Flimby Factory that giving a chance to make their very own version of 576 for the 30th anniversary. I think this is more than a better way for a company to celebrate the day, which is much more convincing to me. Hmm..
I specially love the interview they did. You can read it from the links, and counting from left in below picture; Andy Mandle, Billy Edgar and Roy Bell. Following with their own version of 576, picture via MS.

Read the news just now. Not that surprising or maybe it's just a matter of time since Nike brought Umbro at 2008. I think we will have a better design kit coming out soon but the sad thing could be lesser taste of British origin. Before we see the first Nike's England kit, I am still greatly in love with their 2009/10 kit, both home and away version. Showing up on Beckham, wearing his last England kit in World Cup 2010 qualifying games if not mistaken. Classic, classy yet the best design.
