For Emma Watson and her costars, life in Beverly Hills is nothing short of glamorous. In a newly released poster for The Bling Ring, the former Harry Potter star and her friends enjoy their designer clothes and ice coffee as they walk the rich and fabulous streets near Rodeo Drive.

In the latter half of 2012, Jordan Brand’s retro releases of the IX included a predominately black Photo Blue version. While that release entailed a two-tone outsole, numerous pieces were also produced with an incorrect, Black Bottom outsole. Despite no inherent manufacturing flaws, they were immediately deemed “B-Grade” for their inability to match up with the original color code. But rather than destroy a perfectly fine run of footwear or send them to outlets), Jordan Brand will release the “Black Bottom” Jordan 9 Retro on May 9th with a suggested retail price of $130 USD. They will be available exclusively via Nike.com through a link provided via the @NikeStore Twitter account.
Following the release of a new batch of screenshots just last month, Rockstar Games presents a trio of new trailers for its highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto V. The new video pieces highlight main characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor – who appear to all meet up at some point in the upcoming release – while also putting the sprawling Los Angeles-inspired Los Santos, the largest in-game world ever created by Rockstar, on full display. Although Rockstar has yet to reveal whether or not the latest installment in its storied franchise will come to the next-generation consoles, GTA V is currently slated for a September 17th release for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Enjoy all three trailers back-to-back-to-back above.

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.

Taking us back a decade or three, this “museum-like representation of Jordan” features his iconic red Chicago Bulls uniform accompanied by three of his famous signature sneaker models: the Air II; Air Jordan X “Steel Grey”; and Air Jordan XI “Concord.” [See & Read More]
