Now at the time of the announcement, Apple said the Retina display Macbook would run about $2,200 at the time of release. Fast forward present date and Apple just announced they will selling Retina display Macbook Pro for the starting price of $1499 for 128GB of flash, and $1699 for an upgraded 2.6ghz processor and 256GB of flash not bad. While the Macbook air 13-inch, 256GB flash drive MacBook Air to $1399 from $1499. The (non-Retina) Air has a 1.8ghz dual-core processor and 4GB of memory. There should’nt be a surprise in a price dip since Apple head honcho Tim Cook said at Goldman Sachs that the company was looking at new price points on their products. So if your on the market for a new laptop this is the time to strike.
Mercedes announced today that the all new 2014 A45 AMG hatchback will make it’s debut to the public at the Geneva auto show next month. Funny thing is, they made the announcement the same exact day that Audi also said they will debut their S3 Sportsback at the Geneva show as well. Even though the A45 is a hatchback, it gets the full AMG treatment as far as performance and styling extras. This little whip is going to kick out 360HP! It has a 7 speed transmission and all that power rides on the 4-matic all wheel drive. It will go 0-60 in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155mph! Now that is a hot hatchback. See the videos after the jump of the car in motion and the interior and hit the gallery for more pics.
So players do care about their shooting percentages from the floor! Well at least Kevin Durant does. I’ve never heard an NBA player admit to this until now. Some are calling this selfish and others understand it. Check out what KD had to say & let us know what you think…
Earlier today LG announced they would be releasing their Optimus G Pro smartphone. However before releasing the smartphone we could see a lawsuit from Samsung because the device looks a lot like the Galaxy Note II smartphone. The Optimus will come equipped with 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display and a quad-core processor. Early rumors suggested that the device would come on board with 3,140 mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card and a 13-megapixel rear camera but nothing else has been confirmed from LG. The device is set for a late Feb. release.
J.D. Power and Associates gave out the award yesterday for most reliable brand, and Lexus is the class of the competition. The award is based on ownership of a vehicle after 3 years compared to how many problems on average were reported over that time frame. Lexus ran away with the award this year. Specifically, the most dependable model was the Lexus RX, which is the mid-size SUV with the bubble shape. Porsche was the closest to Lexus in the final tally with 94 problems per every 100 cars surveyed. Now when I say problems, it is not necessarily major issues. It could be the smallest thing such as a light on the dashboard on for no reason. Now for every best, there has to be a worst. That award not surprisingly goes to Land Rover! Range Rovers and Land Rovers have a well known history of losing value quickly after a few years of ownership, as well as many electrical problems. Maybe this will wake them up.

Not gonna lie, I enjoy these commercials. Blake’s a funny guy. Watch Blake Griffin travel back in time using the Kia Optima to teach himself valuable life lessons. This time he goes back to 2002 and learns a lesson about sunblock.
Is it time?! Kim Kardashian was caught with a ring on her ring finger. If you didn’t already know – Kim is actually married, well – in hopes of divorce in the near future. But apparently, it isn’t stopping her from letting her love for Kanye shine through her little left ring finger! The 31-year-old reality start was seen wearing a gold ring with “KW” (Kanye West) engraved on it as she headed out for frozen yogurt with her Kanye in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. This is their biggest sign of commitment since Ye announced that Kim was going to be the mother of their child at Revel in Atlantic City, NJ. This might not be exactly the ring Ye had in mind to give his pregnant girlfriend but this will suffice for the time being. We hope that Kim and Kris’ divorce problems end before the baby pops out in July! See the photos of her ring in the gallery!
