The $875 Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Leather Edition Car Seat.

Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Leather Edition Car Seat.Car seats are vital for safely driving with your younger kids. The Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Leather Edition with Air Protect® Technology and a Perfect Fit Harness has all the features you’d want in a car seat and works for kids up to 70 lbs but it’s $875 price tag is pretty extreme. Infant/child cars seats normally run in the $100-200 price range and provide the same regulated level of protection.

The Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Leather Edition reminds me of the $45 baby perfume from Dolce and Gabbana – unnecessary for the kids but necessary for status-driven parents. I wonder if the product reviews for Pria 70 Leather Edition will come from the parents or the nannies. [Gizmodo]

Using Imported Water In A Water Feature Is Green Because The Sign Says It’s Green.

Town Square Las Vegas Using Imported Water In Water Feature.The geniuses that brought you the saying: “The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves” now bring you the “Town Square Las Vegas cares about the environment and the community. We use imported water in our water feature.” sign. The beatings/morale message was laughable. The environmentally clueless water feature sign… unfortunate. [Sociological Images via Boing Boing]

To Keep Future Energy Costs Predictable, IKEA Decides To Double-Down On Renewable Energy.

IKEA solar panelsIkea has always tried to simplify the furniture assembly process. Following that same path, Ikea is now working to simplify how they’ll get their future electricity by doubling their investment in renewable energy to $4 billion. From Ikea CEO and President Mikael Ohlsson (Bloomberg):

“I foresee we’ll continue to increase our investments in renewable energy… looking at how quickly we’re expanding and our value chain, we will most likely have to double the investments once more after 2015.”

Ikea’s goal is to get 100% of the power for their stores from renewable sources by 2020. Ikea’s stores currently get 34% of their electricity from 250,000 solar panels they own and from 126 wind turbines they’ve invested in. [Bloomberg]

Don’t Be A Sucker By Purchasing An 8 Million Pixel TV With 7 Million Pixels You Can’t See.

Sharp ICC Purios 60-inch 4K LCD TVSharp just announced the release of their new 4K ICC Purios that will sell for $31,000. It’s a 60″ diagonal LCD TV that reaches the 4K mark by displaying a 3840 x 2160 resolution – just over 8 million pixels.

So you have $31k burning a hole in your pocket – should you buy a TV with 8 million pixels? NO and don’t let the sales puke at the electronics store talk you into it. You’re better off extending the life of your current TV rather than upgrading to a 4K model with 7 million pixels you won’t be able to see.

Check out “Why 4K TVs are stupid” on Cnet for more information on why you should NOT migrate to 4K televisions. [Cnet]
