Every Volvo to come with bag for life

1 Comment

Some Volvos, yesterday

Volvo has announced that from 2019 every car it makes with come with a reusable plastic bag you can take into the supermarket.

The Swedish company’s bold announcement is said to be in response to customer feedback which says that Volvo drivers are particularly concerned about arriving at the supermarket and then remembering they haven’t brought their own bag from home and getting the sinking feeling that the people who work in the supermarket are going to judge them for it.

‘It’s not the small outlay to buy another bag,’ explained Volvo boss Wol Voboss. ‘It’s the guilt at having to buy it, and that’s why Volvo is going full bag for life by 2019.’

Other manufacturers are expect to follow Volvo’s lead in the next few years, though none will confirm their plans at present. ‘We are actively developing bags for life for our cars,’ confirmed a spokesman for another major manufacturer. ‘But for the time being, we believe our customers are happy to say “oh bollocks, I forgot to bring a fucking bag again” and then struggle back across the car park cradling some bread, bog roll, a bag of salad and a massive plastic flagon of milk in their bare hands.’

There's a fake Goldman Sachs in China now

If China can fake anything, even a chain of Apple Stores, Goldman Sachs shouldn't be too surprised to find it isn't off-limits.

That's right — the Goldman Sachs has found its doppelganger in China, except it has nothing to do with the New York-headquartered investment banking firm. It seems Goldman Sachs (Shenzhen) Financial Leasing Co. has been operating since May 2013, according to Bloomberg, and it's not affiliated with the actual Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

Shenzhen is a major financial city in China, just north of Hong Kong. The metropolis is known for being the home to a number of large Chinese firms such as Tencent, and is also the site of Foxconn's largest factory, spitting out iPhones, BlackBerrys and Xboxes. Read more...

David Beckham catches ball at Wimbledon like it's no big deal

LONDON — This year's Wimbledon tournament has had its fair share of moments, from Federer's effortless through-the-legs shot to the back of the court to Djokovic's less impressive rant at a ball girl.

Trust Beckham to up the ante, though, by casually catching a rogue ball during the men's doubles semifinals Thursday, before nonchalantly chucking it back onto the court.

He plucked the stray ball, which had deflected off a line judge's chair in Court One during Jamie Murray and John Peers' victory over Jonathan Erlich and Philipp Petzschner, from the air like it was no big thing.

Seems golden balls is good with tennis balls too. Read more...
