I really like Marshall’s line of headphones, and now they’ve updated the Major White to Major White FX, meaning it comes armed with a fully iPod/iPhone/iPad compatible microphone and remote.
As the previous versions it’s fully collapsible and sports a headband made out of the same vinyl used in Marshall’s classic amps.

Volkswagen showed off its Cross Coupé concept at Tokyo Motor Show last year, but for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show they’ve unveiled a new take on it; the Cross Coupé TDI Plug-In Hybrid. This one runs on their new transverse matrix architecture and offers a top speed of 130 mph (62 mph in 6.5 seconds) and 302 combined horsepower from two electric motors and the four-cylinder turbo diesel with direct injection, meaning it’ll probably be fun to drive as well.
According to Volkswagen the TDI Plug-In Hybrid will be good for a whopping 130 miles per gallon, 28 of those using the electric motors.

Volkswagen presented the Buggy Up! concept car at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Based on the new Up! city car it’s a new take on the beach buggies that emerged in California during the ’60s. It sports a completely waterproof interior, neoprene covered seats, an iPod-powered infotainment system, 18-inch alloy wheels and a lightweight construction with extensive body reinforcements. To compensate the lack of roof and doors there’s a roll bar behind the two seats.
Oh, and since it’s a proper beach vehicle it sports specially designed floor drains to get rid of water.
There’s no word on wether this car will actually make it to production, but I sure hope so.
