Jana Kramer is a musician and actress (One Tree Hill), but her work as a hot ninja in Nationwide Insurance commercials is what really caught our interest. A girl has to be pretty damn hot for us to get excited about insurance, but that ninja suit pulled it off and that is why she’s our Crush of the Week. Born in Michigan in 1983, the 5’4″ brunette’s true passion is in country singing, and while we wish her the best of luck in her music career – we just really hope she doesn’t drop the super sexy ninja bit.
Believe it or not, there’s now an Aston Martin available for under a hundred grand. The 2015 Aston Martin Vantage GT starts at $99,000 (OK, not much under a hundred), and the sexy roadster doesn’t compromise on style or performance. Powered by a 430 hp V8, this entry level Aston hits 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph. At the $100k mark, you’re going to be rowing through the standard 6-speed manual under a hard top – but the Vantage GT is also available as a convertible and has an optional 7-speed SportShift II paddle shift transmission.
We received a prototype from a current Kickstarter project, The Qlipter. The Qlipter prototype has only been our possession for a few days, but we can already see the nearly endless uses for this ingenious clip. Not only does it work like a standard carabiner, but the padded hook swivels outward, allowing you to hang your stuff virtually anywhere. While it’s great for outdoor activities like hiking and camping, you can also use The Qlipter around the house (we found it great for hanging dress shirts in the bathroom during showers to get a little steam action).
Amazon stepped into the ring of the streaming device battle and is now a fierce competitor of Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Roku. Amazon Fire TV is a tiny box connected to your HDTV with 2 GB of memory and ready to stream Amazon Instant Video (duh), Hulu Plus, Netflix, Showtime Anytime, and much more. Plus, it also features voice search (just say what you want to watch) and supports an Android-based platform allowing you to play games on your big screen (gaming controller sold seperately).
Megan Fox as April O’Neil?? Sign us up!! Check out the trailer to the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie, or “TMNT” as us cool kids used to call it in the late ’80s-early 90′s. Also starring Will Arnett, the kick-ass turtles hit theaters on August 8th.
The TAG Heuer Carrera is a sleek and clean-styled luxury watch that you can wear everyday, and while it doesn’t come cheap, it’s a much more affordable option than say a Rolex. The Calibre 5 Range of the Carrera now offers a bold Day-Date Window at 3. While it still has the same automatic movement as the standard Carrera (which also just received a slight makeover), the new Day-Date version bumps up in size from a 39 mm to 41 mm, and the retail price moves from $2,900 to $3,300.
First off, the title of this post is slightly misleading – the 420 Sq. Ft. apartment for sale in SOHO NYC is only asking $995k, we just thought $1M had such a better ring to it. It may sound crazy already, but if you loved Transformers as a kid and want to live in the hip and prestigious New York neighborhood south of Houston Street, this little apartment works wonders. With moveable walls, murphy beds, retractable projector screen, a dining table that folds into the kitchen counter, and floor to ceiling storage built into every nook and cranny – the 420 Sq. Ft. home can host a dinner party of 12, sleep 4, and host movie night. See the property listing here
The Porsche 911 is already under attack from theCorvette Stingray, but now the latest competition comes from its own family. The new Porsche Cayman GTS packs 340 hp (a 65 hp bump over the base Cayman) and when paired with the PDK transmission hits 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. Plus, with its mid-engined layout and lack of a back seat it may feel more at home on the track than it’s bigger brother the 911. Larger intakes and smoked daytime running lights help the GTS stand apart from the base Cayman, and the GTS treatment is also available for the Boxster if you prefer a roofless version. Starting at $75k.
