photos Of electric Infiniti Emerge-E Reveal sleek Concept supercar
Although it is set to make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in less than two weeks, photos of the Infiniti Emerge-E have hit the internet—and we like what we see.
The pictures we found at Carscoop.com show a dramatic supercar with plenty of Infiniti styling cues to go around. The company has revealed the Emerge-E will be powered by a mid-mounted range-extending drivetrain, but not a whole lot else about the technical details of the car.
We’ve been wondering what Infiniti’s electric supercar would actually look like ever since the company started teasing the car last year, but we’d be lying if we said we expected a car that looks as good as this one. We’ll have to wait until the car is officially unveiled in Geneva to find out exactly what the Emerge-E is hiding underneath its sleek exterior.

Hate dragging your luggage through the airport? With the PA Series Power Assisted Suitcase ($1,200), your luggage can pretty much drag you. Grab the handle and tilt, and this admitted not-very-sexy-looking suitcase revs up its tiny battery-powered engines, driving itself along for about 1.5 miles. Which would be super cool if it didn’t cost us a month’s rent.

Shop at Home Depot stores and your home won’t be the only thing getting a renovation. The way you pay, thanks to an expanded partnership with payments provider PayPal, may never look the same.
In two weeks time, the home improvement chain will start accepting PayPal payments at all of its nearly 2,000 stores in the U.S., PayPal vice president of retail and prepaid products Don Kingsborough announced Tuesday.
The PayPal store checkout program, initially tested at a handful of Home Depot stores, allows consumers to pay with their PayPal accounts at checkout. PayPal account holders need only activate the feature online to begin paying via PayPal, using their mobile phone number and a pin number, when shopping at Home Depot stores (and soon other locations too). Shoppers are also issued a PayPal payment card (it looks similar to a credit card) that they can alternatively use.
PayPal, the payments subsidiary of e-commerce giant eBay, is helping its parent company evolve from an auction site into a commerce platform that caters to consumers hybrid online and offline shopping needs.
“We are a different eBay today, no longer just an e-commerce leader but a stronger, more diverse global commerce company shaping the future of shopping and payments,” eBay president and CEO John Donahoe said during eBay’s most recent earnings call. “We intend to make shopping more locally convenient and more globally accessible.”
PayPal closed out the fourth quarter of 2011 with 106.3 million active registered accounts.
the best way to get out of bed in the morning may be to scare the hell out of yourself — and your overnight guests.

It’s tough to get up in the morning. Whether you drank too much the night before, or had trouble sleeping, or simply find it difficult to face the dreary reality of existence, your phone or alarm clock may not always be able to get the job done. But what if your clock were actually a “bomb” that you had to diffuse? Well, that’s exactly what the Defusable Clock ($43) is. Plus, it looks cool on a nightstand.
The fully functional alarm clock can, with some imagination, be made to look just like a bomb MacGyver would disarm with a golf pencil and bottle cap. The $43 kit includes only the clock, not the casing. So you’ll need to decide what type of explosive device you want it to become (we suggest bricks of phony C-4 or bundles of fake dynamite). Buttons on the control pad allow you to adjust the clock’s settings — time, alarm, snooze, etc. — but you can always hit the big red button to initiate a 10-second countdown sequence if you want to show it off / send someone into cardiac arrest. When time runs out, it “explodes” with loud noise and flashing LED lights.
To diffuse the clock, you need steady hands and some luck: Choose the correct wire and you’re home free. Pick the wrong one, and boom! Two are dummy wires. The wires are randomly sequenced, so you’ll never know which one you should snip. (Of course, if you literally cut them, you’ll also have to replace them. But much like your kid sister, it’s cheap and easy to do.)
