When we first saw that Poler was partnering with Nike we thought it was a bit of a strange partnership. Poler is company we dig for their outdoor style and aesthetic and Nike is one we go to for sneakers for everyday street use. We will say, for only $70 (USD), the collabo is pretty sweet. The first sneaker they’re offering up is the Braata in three different signature camos from Poler. Choose from Classic Camo, Autumn Camo, or Night Camo for your next outdoor excursion or ride on your fixed gear down the streets of Brooklyn. [See More]
Drake's new album may be called Nothing Was the Same, but he's confident one thing's permanent.

During a recent ESPN interview with LeBron James, Chris Broussard tried to get LeBron to reveal where he will play after the 2013-14 NBA season when he's eligible to opt out of his current contract. But predictably, James shrugged off the question about his future and gave the best non-answer answer that he could think of to Broussard. "I have absolutely no idea," he said.

The Federal Reserve is making it rain new hundred dollar bills on October 8th. They're more colorful, more secure, and easier to authenticate, but harder to replicate. Here's everything that's changed. Most of the benjamins you see today were designed way back in 1996. Sounds pretty old, right?

But the latest batch of seems to be a big improvement. If you were contemplating going into the counterfeiting business, you'll be talked out of it by the time you see how the Treasury Department has booby-trapped this bill. It looks nearly impossible to duplicate. You can take an interactive tour of the new C-notes here, but we went ahead and did a breakdown of the features for you. [See More]

The story of Nintendo‘s 2DS handheld begins today, yet its legacy traces back all the way to 1989.
