Shoppers looking for the best price on Apple stuff recently may have noticed a mysterious ebay store selling official Apple refurbs for less than Apple itself. Although Apple never confirmed its involvement, it was widely believed that it was behind Refurbished_Outlet, because it sold official Apple refurbs with genuine Applecare. Today, there are no more products for sale through Refurbished_Outlet, and the store page brings you to an FAQ.

This fossilised remains of this car-sized beast were recently discovered in Columbia.
If you heard an ominous sound coming from your car’s engine, what would you do? Most people probably wouldn’t continue to gun the engine, trying different gears until the problem went away.

Just outside of Adelaide, Australia, there’s a pedestrian-looking, bluestone church deserving of a second glance. Inside, the 1877 house of worship has been completely renovated and transformed into a thoroughly modern dwelling. It’s such a unique residence that it’s no surprise that it was snapped up almost immediately after it went on the market.
Imagine loading this table up with snacks on the top shelf and beverages on the bottom, then rolling it out to your immaculately decorated modern living room for some serious hedonism — maybe a long movie marathon or a serious gaming session. Sure, there are lots of glorified TV trays that can do that. But few do it with the grace and sophistication of the Chariot table.
