Ken Block Gymkhana 7 Wild In The Streets Of  Los Angeles - Someone Gave Ken Block a 845HP Mustang And This Is What Happened
Here’s the short story: Ken Block + 845HP 1967 Ford Mustang called Hoonicorn + a ton of insanity + tire smoke + director Ben Conrad (the guy behind the past three Gymkhana videos) + another ton of insanity + more tire smoke = Gymkhana 7

And here goes the long story – after three successful Gymkhanas, Ken Bock (the owner of DC Shoes and Hoonigan) partnered again with director Ben Conrad (also directed Recoil 2 and was the creative lead for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers and Iron Man 3) for for the seventh title of the Gymkhana series: Wild In The Streets Of Los Angeles. The clip shows Ken Block unleashed, driving a 845 horse power, 6.7-liter V8 supercharged 1967 Ford Mustang and drifting on the streets of LA. A crazy amount of insanity, a lot of driving skill, some cool panoramas of the empty streets of LA, a couple of Police cars involved in the Gymkhana and a lot of tire smoke make this clip the coolest one of the series. Check it our and let me know in the comments bellow.

I also embedded bellow Ken Block‘s first 6 Gymkhanas in case you missed them!

Horween Leather Bi-Fold Wallet by TheLeatherShop.com - Interior View
I love cool wallets. I find a cool wallet not only boosts personal confidence and makes you feel the king of the world (!!!), but also makes you look good and allows you to make a statement, just like a pair of cool shoes, a fancy leather belt or a stylish timepiece!
The Bi-Fold Wallet from TheLeatherShop.com is a such cool piece of masculine gear! The Bi-Fold Wallet is made of high quality, strong Horween leather hand stitched with heavy duty waxed thread and features two main compartments for cash bills, three credit card compartments as well an ID card slot on the left hand side. The wallet has a slim design, fancy burnished leather edges and a lot of detailing elements designed to make it into a real head-turner: the Moose Brand logo is embossed on the front of the wallet and the TheLeatherShop logo is present on the interior card pocket and on the external side of the fold as well, a fancy slim line cut into the leather goes around the wallet margins on the upper side as well as it’s present on the outer fold to help the wallet keep it’s slim format.

ALSO FROM TheLeatherShop.com: Stitch-less Leather Rivet Wallet, Minimalist Slim Wallet and the Palm Wallet

While I am more of a minimalist wallet guy type, I used the Bi-Fold for a couple of weeks and I was very pleased with it. Other than it’s fancy look, the wallet is very well build and it’s designed to minimize the bulk – for example the leather pieces used to make the credit card slots are cut to not overlap on the sewing, which helps the entire wallet keep it’s slim format even when filled with cash and cards – check the review video to see more about it.

The Bi-Fold wallet is available in Brown (like the model reviewed here) and in Black. Check it out on TheLeatherShop.com website.

23-in Full HD HP Sprout Creativity Station Product J4W72AA#ABA
There’s been a while since we heard exciting news from the desktop side of personal computing! But that’s all about to change with the Sprout, the latest HP project in desktop personal computers, a 23-in touch screen Windows 8.1 machine with Intel RealSense 3D camera which combines depth-sensing and infrared cameras for accurate 3D scanning and a second screen projected on a large capacitive touchpad called TouchMat to allow users Kinect-type interactions with the PC. So how does it actually work? The main screen of the Sprout works just like any Windows 8 touch enabled LCD. The Illumintor (that scanner part) scans 2D and 3D objects placed on the TouchMat, transfers them live to a design app on the Sprout and allows users to interact with scans using the same TouchMat as input device and secondary display at the same time! Cool, isn’t it?

ALSO READ about the Cubify Sense 3D Scanner

The HP Sprout Creativity Station is powered by a 4th gen Core i7-4790S processor and has NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics, 1TB of storage, 8GBs of RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and a 23″ Full HD 1080p touch-enabled backlit LCD display.

The Smartpen is powered by a rechargeable battery which allows 8 hours of constant use on a 2 hours charge, connects to your iOs, Android, Windows and Mac via Bluetooth for notes importing, storing file management on the device, includes built-in memory and handwriting recognition software to save your notes while not connected to your smartphone as well as cloud sync with most cloud services out-there including Dropbox, iCloud or Evernote.

UPDATE 11/14/2014 – I received a handful of comments from backers of the Equil Smartpen 2 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign notifying me about delivery issues concerning big VAT amounts being charged by UPS on delivery of the smartpen. Please make sure you check these comments here before deciding to purchase the Equil Smartpen.
