Playboy on Ipad minus the nudity
Thats right people, this is not a mis-print. Playboy Magazine, purveyor of airbrushed Pr0n for many decades now will be coming to the Ipad. It was tweeted by Mr. Hefner himself. Which is pretty interesting that Mr. Hefner has any time to tweet anything while he is… ummm.. lets just say busy? For some people that would be the greatest news to hit the Internet since sliced bread. Here’s the catch… no nudity. no nekkid girls, no foldout playmates just loads of articles. Have I made myself clear? You can now truly state you are only reading Playboy for the articles. We all know that Steve Jobs stated that if you want Porn get an Android phone… well Hugh Hefner, wheres the Android App for Playboy? I’m not holding my breath on this one folks.

Put some fire on your dinner table
Ever want to eat dinner in front of the fire but either dont have a fireplace or worried about setting fire to the dinner table? Worry no more my friends! for the low low price of $719.00 you can get the Apollo Tabletop Fireplace. This little firebox runs on bio-alcohol and leaves no smoke or odor.
To quote the Website yankodesign.com store
Carl Mertens of Germany has produced a tabletop fireplace called the Apollo that burns bio-alcohol and would grace any home with its simple, but superbly crafted design. This item has all the makings of becoming a classic, it is not only as innovative as it is beautiful and useful, it also improves the quality of life of those who experience it.
Useful, but also simple to use:
Simply fill the holding tank about three-quarters full, slide the lids fully open and light with a long handled lighter or match. Allow to burn for a minute or two in the fully opened position, then regulate the flame to desire size by closing the lid partially.
The unit will emit light and warmth, but is safe to place on virtually any surface. Wipe the unit clean after use. The Apollo is terrific for creating a romantic and warm ambiance in any room.
Burn time is 3-4 hours. 13.8″ long, 11.0″ high, 4.7″ wide.
So, for a nice romantic dinner and fire you know where to go.
