Two Weeks with the Mio MiVue 388


After two weeks of driving with the Mio MiVue 388 in-vehicle digital video recorder, I have seen the automotive industry’s accessory of the future. I have no doubt that soon enough, every vehicle on the road will be equipped with cameras. What is the Mio MiVue? Simply, the Mio MiVue is a “dashcam,” or a […]

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: LeBron 12


A holiday gift for the hoops fan has to be the new LeBron 12 shoes. The 12 is equipped with Nike’s latest technologies like the individual hexagonal Zoom Air units, Megafuse, and Dynamic Flywire. So many colorways are coming, but the HRT of a Lion goes with Christmas rather well. Wavering on that $200 price […]

Franken Frappuccino. I Had To.


I just had to do it. Pulpconnection readers know I’m not a fan of the Frappuccino. A non-coffee-based Frappuccino is downright egregious, but with Starbucks offering the Franken Frappuccino, I had to get this monstrosity. Based off a green tea Frappuccino, the Franken also has white mocha, java chips, mocha drizzle, whipped cream, and either […]

Smashing Pumpkins


Or exploding pumpkin or pumpkin time bomb. Call it what you want, but it is something to watch. Who even thought of putting rubber bands around a pumpkin to begin with?

Is There a Moped Under There?


I had to do a double take after seeing the 2014 Scion iQ on the road. It’s so tiny and small that I wondered if secretly there was a moped under the exterior. Seriously, two of those cars could quite well fit into a single parking stall. So really, is there a moped under there?

Swell Bottles Now at Starbucks Hawaii


I had not heard of S’well bottles until today when I walked into Starbucks and saw these somewhat-out-of-place vibrant orange bottles. On one side it said S’well, on the other was a picture of the Hawaiian islands along with the text Starbucks Hawaii. Swell bottles are stainless steel and double insulated like many others out […]

Starbucks Hawaii Gets Oat Cakes?!?

In Portland, Oregon, Starbucks fans can pre-order and pay for their drink using their mobile devices. The Midwest has already experienced the new forthcoming holiday drink, the Chestnut Praline Latte or CPL. In Hawaii, well, we have the Hawaii Oat Cake. Yes, an oat cake. How exciting. On a backhanded positive note, our state is […]
