Starck-designed watch is slickly discrete

That bloody Philippe Starck, he really needs to stop designing lovely products that so tease my wallet.  I actually already have a very similar digital Fossil watch that he created, but this new Veiled design really tickles my temptation glands.  Available now in both mens' and womens' versions (the latter being narrower), the analogue face is all-but-obscured by the electroplated crystal glass that looks to be a continuation of the stainless-steel bracelet.

Fossil’s latest Starck watch is holier than thou

Fossil’s latest Starck watch is holier than thou

Methinks designer Phillipe Starck was sucking a mint or two when he came up with his latest watch design for Fossil, the O-Ring Digi.  How else could you explain the distinctive hole in the middle of the face?  Lacking hands, the hours are displayed as numbers while minutes are blocks that build up to create a full ring; the buttons for setting the time are hidden on the back, keeping the whole arrangement sleek.

I suppose Starck could have a particularly nice mole on his wrist that he wanted to show off, or maybe a very small tattoo.  Anyway, the O-Ring Digi is available now for $110 from Fossil's website.

Bill Gates reflects: Steve Jobs, old rivalries, and Foundation future

Bill Gates reflects: Steve Jobs, old rivalries, and Foundation future

Bill Gates has described his final meeting with Steve Jobs, in an emotional interview with 60 Minutes' Charlie Rose in which he recalled his rival and friend's "forward looking" attitude. "He and I, in a sense, grew up together" Gates said of his relationship with Jobs, a complex friendship that saw each man engage and respect with each other on a personal level, while at the same time lead companies that at many points in their history were fiercely competitive and even antagonistic.

LaCie 5big Thunderbolt and 5big NAS Pro hands-on

LaCie 5big Thunderbolt and 5big NAS Pro hands-on

Should LaCie's Blade Runner have enough style but not enough space for your external data needs, fear not; the company has a pair of new 5big arrays with a choice of network or Thunderbolt connectivity for those with big storage demands. The 5big Thunderbolt and 5big NAS Pro each follow the monolithic design language of previous LaCie drives - all brushed aluminum and glaring blue power-light "eye" - but offer up to 20TB of capacity or optional RAID redundancy.

Steve Jobs’ Venus yacht shown in fresh footage

Steve Jobs’ Venus yacht shown in fresh footage

Steve Jobs' yacht, the Starck-designed Venus, hasn't had an easy time over the holidays, impounded in Amsterdam over unpaid bills, but that gave harbor hunters a chance to snap some new video of the crisp-edged craft. Michiel Frackers took a post-Christmas walk to the former container terminal where Venus was being held, and rather fittingly used an iPhone 5 to film the distinctive yacht as it was being tended to by crew.
