Goodbye, Patrik Ervell. Hello, Chevrolet. Manchester United has a new home kit. The previous, a sharp number that paid homage to Manchester’s connection to the textile industry (i.e. gingham), clothed the Red Devils during David Moyes’ remarkably dreadful tenure as manager. And, as such, goes the way of the gray kits that rendered players invisible on the pitch during the ’90s. Those little collars have been told to fuck right of, except on Puma’s new Arsenal alternate.
In replacement of the Ervellian design is a new look that borrows, seemingly, from Little League baseball. There is a single button henley placket and then there is, well, a fantastically large Chevy ribbon. Americanness doesn’t suit football (sorry, Glazer family), and unless Louis van Gaal rights the ship, this one should, like last year’s kit, go the way of the dodo in 12 months time.

The mainstream adoption of the smartphone has generally meant more chance to kill/waste time, be anti-social and in some cases, simplify your life. Kwikset’s Kevo looks to perform the latter with their new integrated lock that enables users to unlock their doors via just a simple tap. There’s no need to swipe your phone over the keyhole but rather the tap instantly pairs and recognizes the authorization between the two. In addition you’re able to send temporary codes to trusted people so you can let them in without the hassle of dropping keys off and meeting up. For now the Kevo is only available for the iPhone 4S and 5. For more information head over to Kwikset.
