Weekend Roundup: Final Week of January

Welcome to the last Weekend Roundup of January! Where did the time go? It still feels like New Year’s Eve was just yesterday, so here are a couple of things we could use to help us spring into 2014 with a confident step:

New Seamless Shapewear for the New Year

If you’re still working hard to work off those pounds from the holidays, have no fear. Jockey Seamless Shapewear wants you to change everything you know about shapewear: this new collection of four must-have silhouettes in three different shades will help you fit into your dream LBD. Jockey’s century-long experience in making undergarments has been applied to this specific line of revolutionary shapewear, offering function, form, and comfort at all times. Low-maintenance and machine washable, there’s a different shapewear for every need: the High-Waist Bikini and Shorts are made of a breathable cotton, while the Camisole and Open-Bust Slip include details like adjustable straps and gold accents. Take your pick from color choices like Frozen Frappe (a neutral beige complementary to all skin types), Black Sugar (a versatile and luxurious black), and Very Berry (a sassy high-octane red).

Run Harder, Faster, Stronger

February will be a month that will have running enthusiasts springting to stores: introducing the Adidas Springblade, an innovative running shoe designed with a specially-molded blade to help forward motion in the foot. Unlike other standard EVA midsoles which return energy vertically, the Springblade features sixteen forward-facing blades made out of a high-tech polymer. These elastic blades react quickly to all environments, compressing and then releasing energy to create efficient forward propulsion. This flexible sneaker has also been designed to wrap around the runner’s instep, helping to lock energy and releasing it at the heel.

The initial launch in Indonesia will start with only 250 pairs of the shoe available, retailing at Rp. 1,999,000. Run to your nearest at Adidas stores in Jakarta (adidas Senayan City, adidas Pondok Indah Mall, adidas Grand Indonesia, adidas Plaza Indonesia, adidas Plaza Senayan) and Surabaya (adidas Tunjungan Plaza III) before they run out!

Acer Releases New Generation Table

Acer introduces the second generation of the 8-inch Windows 8 tablet: the Iconia W4-3G that is equipped with an Intel Atom Bay Trail 1.8 GHz quad-core processor, weighing just 0.4 pounds, and having a sharp display thanks to IPS technology. Retailing at IDR 5,199,000, the Acer Iconia W4 includes pre-installed Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013, which is very useful for us who love to type and do work on the go. With that price, Acer also includes a Bluetooth keyboard, a micro USB cable, and complimentary WiFi Internet up to 1000 hours (provided by Intel Indonesia). Iconia W4-3G will be available in March 2014, so for those of you who also interested to get one, be patient! :)
