There’s some good news for the women who enjoy their tech gadgets to be good quality as well as stylish. As it turns out JBL and Roxy are teaming up to create a line of headphones specifically for women. From their teaser pic you can thankfully see that they aren’t just painting a thick coat of pink on and leaving it at that. From that one little picture, it appears that the headphones will most definitely be worth checking out. You won’t have to wait all that long to see them either, it appears that they’ll start unveiling these next month.
Of course there is no solid date on that, but it is apparent that they have hopes to release these in May. The collection will also include some earbuds for those that don’t like to wear the full-sized headphones all the time. Hopefully the prices aren’t too outrageous to go with these stylish electronics. Beyond the picture and that they’re teaming up to release these soon, there aren’t a whole lot of details. I suppose we’ll just have to impatiently wait for May to finally come around.

Well I guess this is what a child of a bicycle and a scooter would look like if they got together. The Pumgo Scooter is from the same creators who brought you the Pumgo Skateboard. Spotted at Toy fair this past Sunday, it was an interesting sight to behold. It seemed so obvious - why didn’t someone come up with this before? On the otherhand after seeing it in action for a few moments longer, it sure looked like the rider missed having a seat. It’s perfect for those who are looking for something that acts like a bike but isn’t the size of one. The handlebar folds down for easy storage. Perfect for the traveling blogger in the city…Pumgo Scooter retails for $299.
