So, these are just about the most rad things ever.

Yeah, I know, nobody's said "rad" since the 1980's, but I've started saying it, probably from reading Slackerz too much. They say it a lot.
Anyway, I was looking up earphones online, thinking of getting some skullcandy ones, but I wanted to do some research before investing 30 euro in a piece of electronics. So, just for comparative purposes, I decide to look up the specs for my current headphones (just the ones that come with you iPod). Apple doesn't post the specifications like frequency range or anything useful like that, so I thought I'd do a little digging through the site in hopes that I'd accidently stumble upon some sort of information. And then these caught my eye.

Now, I don't think I'd ever buy a pair of these, but I just had to say something. The very concept of these things in my opinion, is really, really cool. They're glasses that work like TVs. We're talking jetsons here, people. Little TVs in your glasses. So you can watch stuff while you're on the go. Is it unnecessary? Yes. You could just look at your iPod instead. However, it is also really, really freakin' cool. 

I've always personally been in love with the idea of a Heads-Up-Display (HUD) Just like in most videogames. In this eutopia of visual information, I have a minimap in the bottom left hand corner of the screen, names over people's heads that link to their  bebo pages (or myspace, you get the idea), and maybe even a health bar over the top, based on my current vitals. It'd go down during heavy excercise, but then restore over time as my heart rate went back down! 

This is why I love having a blog. I can just rant and rave about whatever the crap I feel like ranting and raving about, but it'll all kosher because it's the interwebs. Just wanted to say those are awesome, and kinda rant about how I think HUDs are great.

What you failed to mention to be also rad are skullcandy earphones. Back to basics!
