Italian State Police’s not-so secret weapon: Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia

Prefect Antonio Manganelli, head of the Italian State Police, has about one of the most desirable perks just about every man (or woman probably) dreams of.  Since Italy is home to the Fighting Bull, Lamborghini decided to donate a police version of its latest Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia to Manganelli.

The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia replaces the current Gallardo Police Car which has clocked in close to 87,000 miles of patrol duty.  It’s packing 560 horses so don’t even think about running from this cop car.

It’s got of extras like a “Proof Video Data System” that does more than your ordinary video camera.  With the help of GPS data, the device can calculate the location, direction of movement and speed of the Lamborghini. This combined with the distance and time before intercept, accurately determines the speed of the vehicle being pursued.

What to Watch: Pride and Glory

This weekend, Ed Norton and Colin Farrell are starring in Pride and Glory, a movie that’ll definitely have you on the edge of your seat.  It comes out October 24th, so be sure to head to your closest theater.  It’s been in the works for a while and we’re glad it’s finally coming out.

For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora’s Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.

Motorola’s back with the $2000 AURA

Motorola’s introducing the first circular display into the phone market with the AURA and says it’s “The Return of Artistry.”

Technical precision and mechanical excellence are met with a Swiss-made main bearing and more than 200 parts that create a seamless opening for the handset. The quality of a photographic print is celebrated in the brilliant interplay of 16 million colors and 300 dpi resolution on the unique, round liquid-crystal display. Capped with a Grade 1, 62-carat sapphire crystal lens – one of the most scratch-resistant materials on earth.

For a second, I thought we were talking about a Rolex.  The Aura comes with a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, microUSB port, quad-band GSM connectivity, a microSD card slot, multimedia player and up to 7.3-hours of talk time (400-hours in standby).  The phone’s got a top-notch finish with unparalleled quality, but is it worth the $1,999 price tag?

Check the press release after the jump and let us know what you think.  The phone will be available before Christmas and pre-orders are set to begin on December 4th.

Giant Ear Bud Speakers made for Dumbo

We caught these over at Urban Outfitters and thought they were interesting to say the least.  They look like a XL version of iPod headphones.  These speakers are good for your dorm or apartment, but don’t expect for them to be a large part of your home theatre system.

A surreal sound solution, Giant Ear Buds connect to your PC, iPod or home system via standard headphone jack for stylish stereo playback.

They’re powered by either USB, battery or wall adaptor (not included).  Each speaker is 4″w, 7″h, 3″d.
