01. Report: World’s oldest running car fetches $4.6 million at auction

“The world’s oldest running car, an 1884 De Dion Bouton Et Trapardoux Dos-A-Dos Steam Runabout, made history Friday, fetching $4.62 million at RM Auctions’ Hershey, Pennsylvania event. Before a packed house, the 127-year-old ride quickly eclipsed its $500,000 starting bid.” (autoblog)

02. BODY MILK PROJECT (above)

“Milk may be good for your bones, skin and hair, but in these very titillating photos it will get your pulse racing, too.” (feeldesain)

03. Comparing Big-Ass Smartphone Screens to 1950s Tail Fins

“This is the absolutist position, and I don’t agree with it. I don’t think 4-inch and bigger screens are silly or needless. For some purposes, bigger is better, and for people who value those purposes, these are better devices. What I believe is that 3.5-inches (or so) is the sweet spot — the best trade-off.” (daringfireball)

04. Icarus Stealth Track

“This is the first Icarus to be exported to the Ukraine, but if he keeps producing work like this, it won’t be long before Ian Sutton is getting orders from all over the world. Roma Skripchenko is the proud owner of the Stealth Track, and I doubt there’s been a slicker machine seen on Ukrainian streets.” (cycleexif)
