Gadgets : Dyson V6 Mattress Handheld Super Vacuum

Gadgets : Dyson V6 Mattress Handheld Super Vacuum

Not content to only make plain old vacuums, Dyson is pumping out specialized vacuums for all your home cleaning needs. Later this month, they’ll start selling the Dyson V6 Mattress, a modified version of their V6 Absolute cordless vacuum that debuted earlier this year.

The V6 Mattress uses the same V6 motor as the cordless vacuum. That powerful motor has been stuffed into a smaller body that makes more sense for handheld use on mattresses. The HEPA filtration system keeps all of those dust particles and bacteria you’re pulling out of your mattress in the vacuum, instead of shooting them into air. That’s great news, because there’s a ton of that stuff on your mattress, which is the most difficult to clean dust collector in the house.

The brush has also been modified slightly to work best with the soft surface of most mattresses, using stiff nylon bristles on a full-width brush bar. Those nylon bristles should be tough enough to dislodge dust and bacteria, but easier on the mattress than the carbon fiber bristles found on the V6 Absolute.

Like the V6 Absolute, the V6 Mattress has a 20-minute battery life, which, unlike the V6 Absolute, should be more than enough to get the job done in one go. The V6 Mattress will debut on the Home Shopping Network on April 20 at $250 and will go on sale online the day after.

Cars : Shelby Baja 700

Cars : Shelby Baja 700

Ford's SVT Raptor was no slouch. But if the stock 411 horsepower isn't enough for you, consider upgrading to the Shelby Baja 700. Thanks to a 2.9 liter Whipple supercharger, bigger throttle bodies and injectors, a better heat exchanger, and a Borla exhaust, this custom beast outputs 700 horsepower (hence the name). Other upgrades include special graphics and badging, classic Shelby striping, a new suspension from Rogue Racing, optional Rogue Racing front and rear bumpers, and 18" custom wheels. Limited to 50 examples.

Pearls : Ed Sheeran

"Try to find someone with a sense of humor. That's an important thing to have because when you get into an argument, one of the best ways to diffuse it is to be funny. You don't want to hide away from a point, because some points are serious, but you'd rather have a discussion that was a discussion, rather than an argument."

News : Tidal CEO + 25 Employees Fired

News : Tidal CEO + 25 Employees Fired

Tidal, the music service owned by rapper Jay Z and more than a dozen fellow musicians, named Peter Tonstad as interim chief executive officer, replacing Andy Chen.

Tonstad, who oversaw Tidal under its prior owner, “has a better understanding of the industry and a clear vision for how the company is looking to change the status quo,” according to an e-mailed statement Friday. Tidal also confirmed reports in the Swedish press that it fired some executives.

“We’ve eliminated a handful of positions and refocused our companywide talent to address departments that need support and cut redundancies,” the company said in the statement. “Tidal’s offices globally will remain and grow. We are already hiring for several new positions now.”

Jay Z acquired Tidal to give artists more control over the subscription streaming, the fastest-growing part of the music industry. Revenue from subscriptions climbed 39 percent to $1.57 billion last year, according to the U.K.-based International Federation of the Phonographic Industries.

Tonstad is a former CEO of Aspiro Group, the Malmo, Sweden-based parent of Tidal that Jay Z bought this year.

The most popular subscription service is owned by Spotify Ltd. Apple Inc. is remaking the service it acquired from Beats Electronics LLC.

Tidal, which offers exclusive songs and videos from participating artists such as Nicki Minaj and Jay Z, has a high-quality streaming subscription for $19.99 a month and a standard service that starts at $9.99. The company doesn’t have free streaming product.

Videos : Rihanna : American Oxygen

Videos : Rihanna : American Oxygen

Rihanna just dropped the new video for "American Oxygen", and it's really not like any Riri video you've seen. We don't mean that in a facetious, shallow "check out the Bajan singer like you've never seen her before – with silver hair!" way. The 5:20 minute clip is actually one of the more politically-charged music videos to come out from a pop star in the last year.

Archive footage of the Ferguson protests, 9/11, Occupy Wall Street, the civil rights movement and even a shot of Martin Luther King Jr in his coffin dominate the frame, sitting alongside bog-standard all-American clips of cowboys, the moon landing and the red white and blue.

One section makes Rihanna's feelings on today's anti-police brutality movement pretty clear, juxtaposing footage of Ferguson protesters against a clip from the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the 1968 demo that hosted MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech. Basically, this video is the Black Power version of Lana Del Rey's "Video Games" and I'm into it.

Between this and "Bitch Better Have My Money", it looks like Rihanna's heading in a new direction. It's been a long time since Riri was considered Beyoncé Lite, but this video just confirms it. What do you think – are you a fan?
