Playstation 4 release date announced! During this week’s “Tech Tour,” we learned that the Playstation 4 will be released on November 15th with a price point of $399 and the X-Box One will be released on November 5th, but priced $100 higher than the Playstation 4. The Playstation 4 already has over one million pre-orders, so if you want one of these things, get ready to stand in line. If fitness is your thing, we learned that Bowflex will be coming out with a wristband which syncs fitness data via Bluetooth and helps users stay accountable for their fitness goals. This is similar to the Nike Fuelband, Fitbit Flex and Jawbone Up, but comes at a much lower price of just $50. Look for the Bowflex Boost to hit shelves next month.
Big J uses a man purse. He calls it a “messenger bag,” but we all know it’s a man purse or “murse.” I just learned that’s what the fancy folks call them. Research shows that man purse sales are up 3% over the last year, which equates to a whopping $950 million. They say the reason for this upwards trend is that men now have more things to carry, such as electronics, chargers, grooming products, books, etc. See there, it’s a frickin’ purse! Zach Galifianakis would be proud.
