Apple says the company sold 5 million iPhone 5s in 3 days — but that figure is lower than analysts had expected.
Sales of the new iPhone 5 just barely nudged past last year’s sales of the iPhone 4S. Apple stock shares were down $6.60 in morning trading following the new sales report.
There’s a new must-have item for men that is quickly selling out everywhere.
The plain brown paper bag is no longer just a sack to carry your man’s lunch. The paper bag has been given a stylish facelift courtesy of designer Jil Sander Vasari. The Vasari “clutch” for men is made from coated brown paper, stitched seams and metal vents stamped with the Vasari logo to give the brown paper bag a trendy new look.
The paper bag clutch is already sold out at The Jil Sander store in SoHo, New York. It isn’t available online either (I checked eBay.com). Sure, you could save yourself $290 by making your own brown paper bag clutch, but it won’t be a designer brown paper bag.

Nike is selling LeBron James’ new basketball shoes for $315. No, that’s not a typo. Nike blames the absurd price on the “increased costs of materials” such as cotton and shipping costs. The ‘LeBron X Nike Plus’ shoes debuted during the USA vs Spain gold medal game at the 2012 London Olympics.
LeBron’s 1st sneaker release was in 2003. That shoe sold for $110. The price increase comes as Nike continues its free-fall in the stock market. Nike’s margins are now lower than most of its direct competitors, including rival Adidas, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Critics of Nike’s price increases are taking to social networking websites to urge others not to buy the high-priced sneakers.
Sportswear giant Adidas is catching heat for “promoting slavery” by manufacturing ‘shackle shoes’ trainers.
The JS Roundhouse mids feature the LA Lakers’ orange and purple colors with orange cuffs links that are similar to the shackles worn by Africans during the lucrative slave trade in the south.
The promotional copy for the shoe ads posted on Facebook reads: “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?”
But activists and Facebook users reacted with anger at the premise of Adidas promoting slavery with the shackle shoes.
More than 2000 Facebook users labeled the shoes “offensive” and referred to Adidas as “ignorant” for the insensitive promotional campaign.
With game 1 of the 2012 NBA Finals already on the books, more and more women are tuning in to see who will win the ring: LeBron James of the Miami Heat or Devin Kurant of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
