“We asked ourselves, ‘What could we do that would move our customers forward with the latest and greatest technology every day?’ said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. “We decided: How awesome would it be if anytime customers don’t have the latest iPhone, they are eligible to upgrade, and have it be as simple as handing us your existing iPhone and picking up a new one – all included in your monthly rate.”
When Michael Jordan first retired in 1993 the Chicago Bulls wanted to honor MJ. To do that they had sculpters Omri Amrany and Julie Rotblatt-Amrany created a 12-foot sculpture that was dubbed “The Spirit.” The placed the statue right in front of the United Center in Chicago. The statue has MJ in his icon Jumpman pose. On the statue Jordan is wearing the Air Jordan 9 shoe. The Air Jordan IX was a shoe that he never wore in an NBA game.
So to give a shout out to the statue Jordan Brand is releasing “The Spirit” Air Jordan IX Retro sneaker. The shoe features similar accent colors as the statue and reads November 1, 1994 on the backside of the tongue to mark the date it was unveiled. The retro will release next Saturday, Aug. 22 for $190 at select retail stores.
There are days where you are looking for a different adult beverage. In the summer you are looking for a cool and refreshing drink. Have you ever tried a glass of wine on those certain occasions? There is a new wine on the market called Honeyvine.
This wine is light and crisp. Honeyvine white wine is a modern twist on the ancient honey drink, called mead, which dates back to early civilizations. Honeyvine is a proprietary blend of premium white wine, natural honey and honey essence for a crisp, more refreshing-tasting take on honey wine.
The natural flavors of honey and wine offer intrigue because both are influenced by their place of origin. The same grape variety grown in different soils, site exposure, climate and vintage yield wines of different flavor profiles, just as flavor of the honey depends on the source of flower pollen that the bees bring back to the hive.
The wine gives off scents of honey and orange blossom. The taste has honey that complements apple and pear, rounding out the taste profile and providing just a hint of sweetness with a juicy and lingering finish.
This new twist on mead is not as sweet as a dessert wine and makes a refreshing aperitif or complement to lighter entrees. Winemaker Reggie Hammond added natural honey and orange blossom honey essence to enhance the flavors of wine, rather than the ancient practice of fermenting the honey. He selected premium California vineyards, pressed the grapes and cool-fermented their juice in stainless steel tanks, resulting in a dry, white wine similar to an unoaked Chardonnay. This wine, with its fresh varietal flavors and crisp acidity, acts as a backdrop for the natural honey and orange blossom honey essence. The honey rounds and balances the wine, giving it a light sweetness and a lingering honey finish.

Football is less than a month away. From the NFL to college football we as fans can’t hardly wait. One question does remain. Is your car tailgating worthy? If you are not sure there is a list of the top 10 vehicle features for tailgating that Cars.com has recently put together. So check out the top 10 vehicle features for tailgating to keep your pre-, during- and post-game party on track
How do built-in bins with enough space for more than 200 cans sound? Tasty, I know. RamBox, available on Ram light- and heavy-duty pickup trucks, saddles two massive bins on each side of the truck bed with up to 8.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the larger, 6-foot-4-inch bed, and 7.3 cubic feet of beverage space with the 5-foot-7-inch bed. The RamBox is lockable with the remote key fob to keep poachers from stealing your goods while you watch the main event.
Household Power Outlet
Two or three-pronged household outlets are fairly easy to find in SUVs, trucks and minivans, especially those with rear-entertainment systems. Be sure to check the power ratings of the outlet as some don’t have enough juice to power a larger TV. In that case, pick a truck like the Toyota Tacoma with optional 115-volt, 400-watt outlet to handle an assortment of powerful tailgating electrical devices.
Rear Entertainment System
Plug your PlayStation/Xbox into the rear entertainment system for some pre-game pump up on “Madden 16″ or on a classic game such as “ESPN NFL 2K5.”
Rear-Facing Tailgate Seat
With the party happening at the rear of the vehicle, rear-facing tailgate seats like in the Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country and Ford Flex provide a great view of the action off the field. These third rows pivot backward and are prime real estate.
In-Car Wireless Internet
Though earlier systems proved weak and more of a gimmick, in-car wireless systems are heading in the right direction with 4G LTE speeds being tapped and transmitted into in-car hot spots. Audi and GM offer the feature across all varieties of their cars, trucks and SUVs.
Multiple USB Ports
Tailgating often means a long day of constant battery drain while researching lineup changes, injuries and green flag start times. Thankfully, you and all of your friends can mooch off up to five USB inputs for charging devices in a truck like the Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra. Want to get creative? Look into a USB-powered mug warmer for those frigid, late-season football games.
Stuck tailgating at a football game while NASCAR continues on or vice versa? Tune into the broadcast on satellite radio and pipe the race or game through the car’s stereo or a mobile device via the SiriusXM mobile app.
Honda Odyssey In-Car Vacuum
Driving to the football field can be like piloting a rolling kitchen pantry. The chances of spilling a 32-ounce giant plastic bin of cheese balls are high, plus many racetracks’ parking lots are in grass- or mud-covered fields, so something like the Honda Odyssey’s built-in vacuum becomes an easy win for cleaning up after the last embers go out in the grill.
YES Essentials Upholstery
Spills are unavoidable, and the spill risk increases with the amount of “refreshments” brought to the tailgate. No one wants to go there, but designated drivers with YES Essentials fabric in certain Kia, Hyundai and Fiat Chrysler Automobile vehicles won’t have to worry as much about the unspeakable since the cloth upholstery is stain and — this is key — odor resistant.
Anything With a Liftgate
This seems like a no-brainer but it’s worth a mention. Sure, tailgating refers to gathering around the fold-down tailgate of a truck or SUV, but anything with a liftgate might be the way to go as the liftgate rises above the rear of the vehicle to shade tailgaters – liftgaters? — From sun and foul weather.
