Welcome: Honda’s 2021 NC750X

The ‘Do Everything Motorcycle’ Honda has a refresh for the 2021 NC750X, and *spoiler alert*; it’s better than ever before. Honda markets the NC750X as a motorcycle fit for any occasion; and the features prove it. The first time I sat on one at the Honda dealership I was confused for a moment trying to figure out why there wasn’t a clutch present on the handlebar assembly, but that’s for good reason… There’s nothing better than cruising through traffic on your daily commute without having to wo...

Angels’ Albert Pujols says he isn’t thinking about retirement

TEMPE, Ariz. — A few days ago Albert Pujols woke from a late afternoon nap to see that his phone had exploded. “I had like 3,000 calls,” Pujols said. “What happened? I turned on the TV to see if something had happened. Somebody told me it was all about a post.” That would be an Instagram post from Pujols’ wife, Diedre. Apparently, she had meant to simply send her husband off to another baseball season with her blessings, but the way she initially worded the post led people to believe she was rev...

This crazy-cool power station makes assembling power outlets a simple snap away

There's a reason why the Swiss Army knife has been an essential everyday carry item since long before the term EDC was even a thing. It appears to the Boy Scout mentality in all of us, with the utility to pull out a blade, corkscrew, nail file, or practically anything you need at a moment's notice.  — Read the rest

The Definition Of A Product Remains Elusive

We might argue as to the merits of the 4Ps of marketing, but do we even agree on what the Ps stand for? There’s been some (rather heated) discussions recently on social media regarding the 4Ps of marketing. I’m not going to reignite those debates about the merits, or lack of merits, of the 4Ps – those debates will cascade through marketing chat in waves as they always do, and so don’t need another airing here. However, this is specifically about one of the marketing Ps – Product. A recent twe...

Whicker: 76ers make just enough plays to keep Lakers’ defense at bay

Somebody says it every night in the NBA, usually into a microphone, after a basket by a superpower player: “That’s good defense, but that’s better offense.” There was no offense that was better than Lakers’ defense in 2020. It probably will be the same story in 2021. But on the home floor of the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference, and against the man who could run neck-and-neck with LeBron James for MVP, the O beat the D just enough times Wednesday. Philadelphia dealt the Lakers...

Cyberpunk 2077: A retro-futuristic fantasy with huge potential – if you can ignore the Cyberjank

Practically speaking, it’s nearly impossible to offer a real review of Cyberpunk 2077, the long-awaited follow-up to The Witcher 3 from developer CD Projekt Red. In the first place, it’s so big that the few days I’ve had with it aren’t enough to realistically evaluate the game; second, it’s so buggy and janky now that it feels wrong to review it before it becomes the game I know it will be; and finally, everyone’s going to buy it anyway. The Witcher 3 is among the most universally lauded games o...

Shopping For An M-4 Clone...

Hey Everyone, I am out shopping for another 5.56, and it's bee years since I seriously shopped for one. What the hell is going on? It seems as if tactical awareness and common sense has been tossed right out the window. I saw a 5.56 yesterday that was set up with so much crap that the weapon would be useless in a real fire-fight. The damned thing had a flashlight (ultra-stupid)... if you are operating in a reduced lighting situation, the LAST thing you want to do is line up the light with you...

German space agency’s modular self-driving truck is just a life-size children’s toy from the ’70s

Swiss Army Knives are brilliant. Why have one knife when you can have six in one handy, pocket-sized package? They are the epitome of multi-purpose, functional fashion. Sadly, for the motoring world, there are few vehicles that are as versatile as a Swiss Army Knife. However, with electric drivetrains set to become the norm, designers are being given far more opportunity to play around with vehicle configurations than ever before. This is leading some parts of the industry to explore flexible pl...
