…The Ferrari California is here?

Ferrari California

Though it might look a little funky from the front, it’s all business from the back and sides.

Ferrari just announced the “hugely versatile, innovation-packed GT Maranello” they’re calling the Ferrari California. (Take that, other states!)

Featuring 8-cylinders of mid-front mounted Grand Tourer power, it’s exclusively a convertible with a folding hard top for when you’re ready to mess up the ‘do.


0 – 100 km/h in less than 4.0 seconds, 7-speed dual clutch transmission, multilink rear suspension, F1-Trac traction control system, Brembo brakes, carbon-ceramic discs, etc. Basically, if you want it in a sports car, then it’s there.

To me, the front looks a little bubbly, and the wheels don’t do anything for me, but the back looks pretty good with single tail lights and vertical exhaust, and the side looks pretty good as well with classic proportions, so maybe this prancing horse will grow on me soon enough.

Look for it at Ferrari dealerships and country clubs near you.

…The Amazon Kindle needs more bookishness?

Amazon Kindle

When Amazon designed the Kindle, they wanted it to have “an aura of bookishness”.

Unfortunately, these bookishness dreams did not transfer over into the actual design, as the Kindle is filled with style for the sake of style, unusual proportions, senseless shapes, and a general lack of bookishness.

Click the link for a full breakdown of how Amazon missed the mark, and how they can change it for Kindle 2.0.

[Well… – Bookishness]

…Khan Amore likes perfect women?

Perfect Woman

Khan Amore didn’t just want to find a woman that he felt was perfect, he wanted to make sure he was getting the real deal, so he set out to mathematically calculate the proportions of the perfect woman, using a number called The Devine Proportion. Who knew math could be so sexy?
