Here are the things that caught my eye this week, maybe they’ll be of interest to you too.
A Man and His Volvo Drive Almost 3 Million Miles | Irvin Gordon has driven his 1966 Volvo P1800S more than 2 million miles, the equivalent of about 100 times around the globe. He has no plans to stop driving it after he reaches the 3 million mile mark, which he’s swiftly closing in on with around 34,000 miles remaining.
NFL Teams Use iPads as Playbooks | Several NFL teams are ditching the giant 3 ring binders full of paper depicting plays in favor of sleek and slim iPads that can hold mounds worth of paper as well as delivering video of past games. It’s just the beginning of what’s in the pipeline for the melding of technology and game prep.
Big Mac Recipe | I haven’t had a Big Mac in years, but it’s nice to know that should I want to create one at home I can follow the steps provided by this McDonald’s Canada Executive Chef. His version looks pretty tasty actually.
Team USA Olympic Uniforms Made in China | ABC News did some checking and found that the uniforms to be worn by Team USA during the Olympic opening ceremony were produced in China. A top American fashion designer states there’s no reason Ralph Lauren couldn’t have made the clothing in the United States, at a cheaper price even!
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee | Jerry Seinfeld is about to launch a web show called, well, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, just like I titled it. This show intrigues me greatly as it involves several things I really enjoy: interview conversations between stars, coffee and cars. Here’s a promo for the show. The first episode will be posted next Thursday, July 19th, at 9pm on the show’s website as well as crackle.com.
