Breitling for Bentley: The Mulliner Tourbillon

The "Breitling for Bentley" collection welcomes an exceptional timepiece housing the most prestigious of complications: the Mulliner Tourbillon chronograph. Endowed with several exclusive technical features, this model offers countless possibilities for customization, directly inspired by those provided by the famous Bentley Mulliner workshops.

Each automobile that emerges from the Mulliner workshop is unique…and such is also true of each Mulliner Tourbillon, thus guaranteeing its owner the certainty that he will never see an identical watch. Never!

Each hour-marker on the dial is fashioned from natural hand-crafted mother-of-pearl.

Each Mulliner Tourbillon carries the hallmark of its owner, including his initials engraved on one of the movement bridges.

Intel expects to intro WiMax this week

They haven’t said when or where, but from the sounds of the wheels grinding in the Intel camp, we can apparently expect a formal introduction to WiMax this week—our very favorite not-yet-complete wireless standard in the making, which promises WiFi-like connectivity over very long distances. Of course, the point is less to roll out deployment of the technology (it isn’t complete, as Intel hopes you won’t recall) as it is to kickstart the huge marketing effort we’re about to see Intel break out on this.

Slooh brings star hunting to your basement

New York-based Slooh (who’s site seems totally hosed right now) has two Internet-connected telescopes on Mount Teide in the Canary Islands that they hope you’ll pay $50 a year to play around with. For that price you’ll be able to watch the telescopes when they’re pointed at pre-selected sites, or for the more adventerous, you can book one of the telescopes for five minutes at a time and point it anywhere you like. To help things along, the company will even give extra time to select amateur astronomers who say they’re using service to search for supernovae, asteroids and comets.
