  2. Every “Sports” Car for Sale in the US Right Now

    Every “Sports” Car for Sale in the US Right Now
    So my room mate and I were sitting around bored today watching that episode of Top Gear where Clarkson complains that the sports car is a dying breed and will be gone soon. My room mate promptly agreed and I told him how wrong he is. He claimed there’s next to no sports cars available for sale in the US, and since I disagreed, we set out to make a list. So we did, and here it is: every “sports” car available for sale new in the US right now. What…

  5. The Food Lab: The Science of the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

    The Food Lab: The Science of the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
    I’ve never been able to get a chocolate chip cookie exactly the way I like. I’m talking chocolate cookies that are barely crisp around the edges with a buttery, toffee-like crunch that transitions into a chewy, moist center that bends like caramel, rich with butter and big pockets of melted chocolate. I made it my goal to test each and every element from ingredients to cooking process, leaving no chocolate chip unturned in my quest for the best. …

    People keep texting when they’re behind the wheel, so an engineer has found a technological solution. The problem: He can’t do it on his own.

  8. Rooftop Mounted Wind Turbines That Make Homes Self-Sufficient

    Rooftop Mounted Wind Turbines That Make Homes Self-Sufficient
    When it comes to renewable energy, wind turbines are certainly one of the greener and more sustainable options. Their biggest drawbacks is that they have to be large to produce enough energy, and that they make a lot of noise, which is why they haven’t yet been widely adopted by homeowners. However, The Archimedes, a Holland-based renewable energy start-up is currently working on a solution to this problem. They are designing a wind turbine small…

  9. A Watch Guy’s Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos)

    A Watch Guy’s Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos)
    I’m not even sure we can call it a watch. Okay, it goes on the wrist, and it happens to tell the time, but that’s about where the similarities between Apple’s just announced watch and the hand-assembled, often painstakingly finished mechanical watches we write about, and obsess over, end. I was lucky enough to be invited to Cupertino to witness the announcement of the Apple Watch firsthand, and though I do not believe it poses any thr…

    How the global banana industry is killing the world’s favorite fruit
    During harvest last year, banana farmers in Jordan and Mozambique made a chilling discovery. Their plants were no longer bearing the soft, creamy fruits they’d been growing for decades. When they cut open the roots of their banana plants, they saw something that looked like this: Scientists first discovered the fungus that is turning banana…
