Nomenclature aside, the Blackberry Bold enjoys a well deserved upgrade as the first major BB release in two years. The aesthetics are relatively the same, keeping that distinct BB look stressing what most business users will confirm, usability. The development of a new software platform goes hand in hand with the obvious hardware improvements such as HSPDA, Wifi, 625MHz CPU, 1GB internal flash memory and expandable storage up to 16 GB.

Nike Air Max 90 Revisited

The Nike Air Max 90 Infrared alongside the Air Max 95 Neon are models which have represented the two most popular OG colorways from the ever significant Air Max collection of footwear from Nike. Despite the inception of visible Air Unit goodness in 1987 with the Air Max 1, the effect began to reach paramount levels in 1990 with the release of the Infrared 90. Twenty years since the original release and the re-branding of a segment of Nike’s leisure/lifestyle brand on the horizon, the legend has been revisited. Embodying the similar aesthetics from the past, the Air Max 90 for 2008 features updated technical and performance aspects to revive the high performing aspect of the Air Max collection in a more contemporary setting.
