This isn't your normal mid-model refresh. The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo ($148,000 and up) is an all-new model, and as such, it's packing some new goodies. Features like a new all-wheel-drive system, active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, an entirely new, longer chassis, 20-inch wheels, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control active anti-roll system, and full-LED headlights. It hasn't lost its edge, either, boasting a turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that pumps out 520hp in the standard model and 560hp in the S model, paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission that gets you from 0-60 in as little as 2.9 seconds and to a top speed of nearly 200 mph. They'll be rolling off the boats from Germany just in time for the holidays — so here's to hoping you have a very, very generous gift-giver on your list. Enjoy.

Just like the unveiling of a short tutorial on Google Glass a few days ago, the increasing complexity and new innovative features in technology have made it a necessity for companies to go above and beyond to communicate these points. On the back of the recent launch of the Samsung GALAXY S4, the Korean juggernaut provides a heads-up of all the great new features that are packed within the latest update. Several new hands-free Air gestures are of particular interest as they now expand the realm of interaction beyond just normal tactile use. Enjoy.

Lunasee’s ASL 1000 ($150-200 USD) uses four 1W LEDs to excite a strip of photo-luminescent pinstripe tape that attaches to the rim of motorcycle wheels, improving nighttime visibility. It’s compatible with motorcycles that have dual swing arms. Lunasee installations do not require the addition of batteries or electronics to your wheels. Instead, a 4mm wide, nearly weightless phosphorescent pin stripe is applied to each rim, and as the wheels rotate, the attachments charge via LEDs mounted to the bike and wired into it's power supply. Enjoy.

Roc Nation’s British sensation Rita Ora has been fairly quiet on the music front these past few months — being the face of Superga’s new campaign, a Twitter spat with Azealia Banks and concerts all around the world have kept her occupied — but today she returns with a hot new video for “Facemelt.” It’s part of Hunger TV‘s Dirty video series, which films visuals for album cuts that wouldn’t normally get the video treatment. Rita’s debut album, Ora, is out now on iTunes. Enjoy.

As legendary hip hop artist Snoop Dogg traveled to Jamaica, submerging himself in the Rastafarian culture to return as reggae musician Snoop Lion, the Long Beach native brought along a camera crew to document his journey both within and without. Matching the album title of his first foray into Jamaica’s tranquil music genre, Reincarnated was originally envisioned as a short film, however the extensive self-realizing footage of Snoop visiting Rasta temples, remote marijuana plantations, Kingston’s Alpha Boys School band, reggae legend Bunny Wailer and much more quickly transformed into a motion picture that runs over 90 minutes. Having already been shown in select theaters across the U.S earlier this year, the full version of the documentary is now being streamed online. Watch it above, buy it here and purchase the album on Amazon. Enjoy.

Surely this generation looks back fondly on the summer of 2001, whence audiences were first introduced to Dominic Toretto and his band of street-racing outlaws, not to mention his lovely sister Mia, launching a film series called The Fast and The Furious. Since then, the series has taken us to Tokyo and back, under the hoods of countless modified imports, and has blessed us with endless entertainment per a spot-stealing Tyrese performance. The latest installment of the series – Fast & Furious 6 – finds Dom, Brian, and the rest of the gang reprising their roles to hunt down an international terrorist, using hot rods, explosions, and street smarts to save the family ties at risk. Enjoy the trailer above and be sure to catch Fast & Furious 6 in theaters May 24th.
