Over the last few days, there have been reports indicating that Nike’s Digital Sports Division had laid off most of its staff. The division is responsible for the FuelBand, which seemed to be doing quite well, but in fact, apparently hasn’t really taken off.

Nissan Leaf CARWINGS Game: Get the Best Mileage!

Anyone who’s played games on any modern console knows that your gameplay can be ranked via these Internet connected systems. I remember the first time I plugged in an old Xbox and saw how I ranked in the U.S. Now Nissan is taking a page out of the Xbox Live book with their new car, the Nissan Leaf.

Scott Spark LTD

The Scott Spark LTD boasts that it’s the lightest full suspension mountain bike available, but Cannondale released its Olympic mountain bike edition of the Scalpel which is actually 1.6 lbs lighter. The Scott Spark LTD does possess some cool technology. It weighs 20.6 lbs. The Cannondale Scalpel Olympic weighs 19lbs. The new Trek Fuel EX 9.9 now weighs in at 23.5 lbs. Taking a Cannondale Scalpel carbon fiber frame with a carbon fiber lefty and a carbon fiber seatpost and handlebars will most probably reduce easilty the weight of the Scalpel. The other thing that is pretty heavy on these bikes are the wheels. A pair of carbon fiber wheels will make a big difference. This is what they used to make that Cannondale/Vredestein so light, plus a few tweaks.
