Impossible Foods Burgers to Hit Menus Soon

on .

The burger was everything I expected one to be: juicy, dense, chewy, salty, and satisfyingly fatty. But unlike every other burger I’ve eaten, this one was 100 percent meat-free. And it was doing a shockingly good job at convincing my brain that the substance in my mouth was, in fact, meat.

Quick Spin: 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris

on .

“It’s a Mercedes-Benz” I told the seven eager rugby players, all curious as to what we’d be carpooling in to the tournament. Their eyes widened. “Awesome!”, “Sweet!”, “Baller!”, “Wait, we won’t all fit!” The great challenge of filling a van with eight rugby players is our kit bags. The great joy of a repurposed city-cargo van being used as a passenger vehicle is that it makes a joke of that “challenge”.

Alex Blumberg's Podcast Revolution is Just Beginning. NPR: This is Your Warning

on .

There here were few things more addictive this summer than listening, with alternate delight and wonder, to Starlee Kine’s Mystery Show podcast. In each episode, Kine goes off in pursuit of the answer to some odd question, like, “How tall is Jake Gyllenhaal?” or, “What is the origin of this cool-but-weird belt buckle?” Whatever the assignment, Kine doggedly pursues the truth, taking the listener through a daisy chain of Hollywood assistants to chef’s conferences in Arizona, along with her.

Once-Radical RelayRides Adapts to a World That Digs Sharing

on .

WHEN SHELBY CLARK launched RelayRides five years ago, the sharing economy barely existed. Lyft and UberX were still two years away, and Airbnb was a 15-person startup being run out of Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia’s apartment. Clark’s idea—that people would willingly give their car keys to complete strangers—was still a pretty bonkers notion. So most of the company’s branding focused on this innovative new concept. The name and original logo, a steering wheel composed of self-reinforcing arrows, underscored the idea that regular people could rent cars to and from one another, rather than grabbing a white Impala from some polo-shirt-wearing counter jockey.

Mercedes Metris On Sale in US in October

on .

Vans might seem to be a relatively new class of vehicle, dating back to the shaggy-carpeted versions of the 1970s. However, it was 120 years ago that Gottlieb Daimler built the first motorized truck and Karl Benz patented a combination motor bus and delivery wagon. Their companies went on to join forces and today Daimler AG is the world's largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles. Mercedes-Benz, a division in the Daimler AG portfolio, has now brought a modern-day meld of these vehicles to the U.S.; it's a mid-sized van that has the capability to be a "motor bus" or a "delivery wagon", with some tough, truck-like characteristics, but with car-like maneuverability and handling.

How Sonos Built the Perfect Wireless Speaker

on .

The Sonos Studio is easy to miss, tucked between vintage furniture stores and art galleries on a sun-bleached stretch of La Brea Boulevard in Los Angeles. Sonos is a company that makes exactly nine products—five wireless speakers for playing music at home and four accessories—but here at the studio, its only permanent retail space, it’s not possible to purchase any of them. Instead, one might encounter a listening party, a music-inspired art installation, a class on sound production, or a concert. Off to one side is a wall-mounted skateboard “lending library,” and across from that is a living room decorated in late-era hipster, with cow skulls, taxidermied squirrels, and a chandelier shaped like an octopus. The room is laid out to show how a consumer might install a Sonos audio system at home. On repeat visits there’s but a single customer, who seems most interested in the free Wi-Fi. An employee estimates that 10 people come in on the average weekday.
