  • Barneys New York is entering the cannabis industry with the opening of a head shop called The High End in its Beverly Hills store, according to The New York Times .
  • The High End will offer luxe cannabis products, marijuana -inspired jewelry, CBD infused beauty products, and paraphernalia, including a $1,475 pot grinder.
  • The move caters to Barneys' customers who have made cannabis part of their lifestyle, a Barneys executive said in a press release .
Barneys New York is taking its product offerings one step higher.  The luxury department store is making headway in the cannabis world with the upcoming March debut of its head shop, The High End, in its Beverly Hills location, reported Alex Williams of The New York Times . "Barneys New York has always been at the forefront of shifts in culture and lifestyle, and cannabis is no exception," said Daniella Vitale, Chief Executive Officer & President of Barneys New York, said in a press release . "Many of our customers have made cannabis a part of their lifestyle, and The High End caters to their needs with extraordinary products and service they experience in every facet of Barneys New York." That includes a sterling silver $1,475 pot grinder, both organic and gold rolling papers, leather ashtrays and lighters by high-end Italian designer GioBagnara, and a $950 bong, according to Williams and the press release. The Head Shop will also sell jewelry, like grinder necklaces, and CBD-infused beauty and wellness products. It will also offer luxe cannabis products such as silver vape pens as part of an exclusive collaboration with Beboe, an upscale cannabis company dubbed the "Hermés of marijuana," according to Williams. Barneys plans to roll out head shops in its other California locations and possibly in New York if recreational cannabis is legalized there, Williams reported. But if you don't live in either state, you can also buy The Head Shop's offerings at Barneys.com, according to the press release. The Head Shop's aesthetics are supposed to be as elevated as its offerings, more "Malibu home than gritty Venice Beach dispensary, with plenty of glass, patinated brass, and raw marble," as part of its "move to court chillaxed influencers," Williams wrote.

How to properly clean an iPad screen without damaging your device

Náhled

apple ipad

  • You'll want to avoid using sprays or any semi-abrasive materials when cleaning your iPad screen.
  • It's important that you don't have any power sources attached to your iPad when cleaning it.
  • It's best to avoid all household cleaners on your iPad screen. You can use a small amount of water to clean the iPad but should be very careful to ensure no moisture gets into the cracks around the edges of your device.
  My device screens are perpetually collecting grime. Maybe it's the LA smog somehow polluting the screen of my iPad — but it's more likely to be general residue collecting on the screen when my iPad spends the day in my too-old backpack. Regardless, when I sit down to work and my iPad screen is dirty, it's just distracting. At some point, I have a strong suspicion that there will be research proving that we're more productive when our device screens are clean. (Up until now, no comprehensive research has been conducted on the subject, so you'll have to trust my hunch on this one.) In hopes of becoming less distracted by a dirty screen, I try to clean my iPad screen with some regularity. However, you need to be careful when cleaning any device screen. It's not something you can spray Windex on and hope for the best. That's why we're going to cover how to clean an iPad screen and what not to do when cleaning an iPad. What to avoid when cleaning your iPad screen Your iPad may seem unbreakable, but it's still a fragile electronic. And that means it is easily damaged and needs to be handled with care — and without moisture. Here's what you need to avoid when cleaning your iPad screen:
  • Using sprays of any kind. In fact, Apple Support advises that you "don't use aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives." Apple also reminds users of its devices to not "get moisture into any openings" of a device.
  • Leaving your device plugged in. You'll also want to make sure there aren't any power cables attached to your iPad while you're cleaning, according to Apple.
  • Using paper towels, hand towels, or any other abrasive cloths. If it feels like you shouldn't use it on your iPad screen, trust that instinct. Apple says to "avoid abrasive cloths, towels, paper towels, and similar items that might cause damage."
  • How to clean an iPad screen properly ipad screen clean
  • Make sure your device is unplugged.
  • Turn your iPad to "sleep" mode or power the iPad off entirely.
  • Use a soft cloth that is entirely free of lint. A microfiber cleaning cloth that you can find on Amazon is ideal — and it's $12 for a three-pack Číst dále >>>

  • We drove an $87,000 Jaguar I-PACE to see how it compares to a $57,500 Tesla Model 3 and a $150,000 Model X. Here's the verdict. (TSLA)

    Náhled

    Jaguar I PACE 3

    • I've driven the Tesla Model 3 sedan, the Jaguar I-PACE compact crossover, and the Tesla Model X three-row SUV.
    • The vehicles vary quite a bit in capabilities, appointments, and price.
    • But in the end, I think the Tesla Model 3 is the best car.
    This is going to be a slightly unusual comparison, but it isn't my fault. As I've noted before, Tesla has a segmentation problem . Here at Business Insider, when we want to match up compact crossover SUVs, we can find two similar vehicles from different brands. But when it comes to all-electric cars, it's a different story. The Tesla Model 3, for example, could take on the Chevy Bolt — and I have compared the vehicles. But the Bolt is currently the only true long-range EV on the market that sells for under $40,000. Tesla isn't yet making the $35,000 version of the Model 3, so you have to point out that the available Model 3 is a premium/luxury car, while the Bolt is a mass-market offering. A larger issue is that because Tesla is only selling three vehicles and has to tweak them in various ways — amenities, self-driving system, total range — to serve buyers at different economic levels, it's challenging to manage good direct comparisons with anybody else's cars. Making matters even trickier is the arrival of a bunch of EVs from luxury automakers over the next few years: the Porsche Taycan, the Audi eTron, the Mercedes EQC, and so on. Everybody is kind of doing their own thing.  The Jaguar I-PACE is a case in point. We sampled it last year. The Tesla vehicle it should match up against is the forthcoming Model Y crossover, but the Model Y isn't yet being produced. Still, the I-PACE is on sale, so if you're shopping electric, chances are you'll give it a look. So here's the idea: I'll compare the Jag against the Model 3, which is cheaper, and the Model X, which is pricier. I know which vehicle I like best, but I'll try to set it up so you can make the best choice for your needs.FOLLOW US:  On Facebook for more car and transportation content! First up, the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE EV400 HSE in "Corris Gray." The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE starts at $69,500 while the top-spec HSE variant starts at $80,500. With options and fees, our test car came to $86,720. Read the review . Jaguars are supposed to be beautiful cars. The I-PACE looks nice. But beautiful? Not in my book. However, it is poised, powerful, and sleek. "The I-PACE utilizes a design principle called cab forward, which pushes the cabin towards the front of the car while moving the wheels to the far corners," Ben Zhang pointed out when he reviewed the vehicle. The leaping car is front and center. See the rest of the story at Business Insider Číst dále >>>

    These $25 boxer briefs are the most supportive I've ever found — here's what makes them different

    • Saxx Underwear Co. makes boxer briefs designed for all-day comfort thanks to myriad thoughtful details.
    • Their proprietary "Ballpark Pouch" reduces the friction and moisture buildup than can cause discomfort, irritation, and plenty of annoyance.
    • They also offer men's underwear in a wide and wild variety of styles, so you can match your boxers to your mood.
    • They're not cheap at around $25 a pair , but in my experience, they're worth the cost. 
    When it comes to underwear, men get the short end of the stick. We have basically three choices for this most intimate piece of apparel — the brief, the boxer, and the boxer brief — none of which is particularly exciting. While women's underwear can be functional, fetching, or both, men's underwear is more or less stuck at function. Recently, I found a company that makes boxer briefs that function so well I've tossed out many of my older pairs. Once you wear Saxx Underwear Co. boxer briefs , you, too, will probably thin the ranks in your underwear drawer, making room for new favorites. The only catch? The cheapest pair out there still costs about $25. SAXX Underwear Why the Ballpark Pouch makes all the difference: Cleverly albeit crassly named, the Ballpark Pouch is the most notable design element of a pair of Saxx boxer briefs , so let's start there. This is one of those "why didn't they think of it before?" innovations: two little flaps of fabric keep a man's legs and his business separated, and offer extra support to the latter. The Ballpark Pouch prevents skin-on-skin contact and reduces friction, whether you're playing a heated game of ball, out for a jog, or just going about your daily routine. The pouch also helps prevent the buildup of moisture down there, reducing irritation, odor, and general annoyance. You guys know all about this — you probably shifted a bit in your chair just now, right? And finally the pouch adds just a bit more lift and support, which you'll appreciate during athletic activity and leisure time alike. SAXX Underwear 1 The fabric blend, perfected: Číst dále >>>

    An $82 million penthouse in NYC's tallest residential building finally sold after 2 years on the market — but only after it was split in half and got a $21 million price chop

    • An $82 million penthouse in New York City's tallest residential building has finally sold after sitting on the market for more than two years.
    • It sold after it was split into two separate units and was given a $21 million price total price cut.
    • The split units sold for $30.7 million and $30.2 million respectively.
    • The luxury 95th-floor apartment, with its 10-by-10-foot windows, offers 360-degree views of Central Park and the city.
    A lavish $82 million penthouse in New York City's tallest residential building has finally sold after sitting on the market for more than two years — but only after it got a $21 million price chop and was split into two separate units. The developers split up the 95th floor penthouse at 432 Park Avenue, which includes stunning 360-degree views of Central Park and the city, into two apartments, in December 2018, as Curbed reported. The floor was then re-listed as two individual three-bedroom condos priced at $41.25 million and $40.75 million. Now, they're both sold, at $30.7 million and $30.2 million respectively, a representative for the developer told Business Insider. Penthouse 95A was bought at the end of 2018 and 95B is in contract. The split of the original penthouse and subsequent sales fits into a larger trend of developers chopping up pricey penthouses into smaller, cheaper units in order to get them off the market, Business Insider previously reported.  Although the two units are called penthouses, they're not actually on the top floor of 432 Park. That would be the 96th-floor unit, which was sold to the Saudi billionaire Fawaz Alhokair for $87.7 million in 2016. Floors 91 through 96 are referred to as penthouses at 432 Park Ave because their layouts are different from the rest of the building and some are full floors, a representative told Business Insider. Business Insider obtained photos of the penthouse on the 92nd floor (which has been sold), whose layout is identical to the previously one-unit penthouse on the 95th floor, to offer a peek inside the luxurious penthouse apartments.  Here's a look at the 95th-floor penthouse before it was split in half.SEE ALSO:  I visited a micro-hotel in NYC, where a one-night stay costs more than $300, rooms are half the size of the average hotel, and you have to walk through the bathroom to get to the bed — and it felt way more spacious than I ever expected DON'T MISS:  This $446 million mansion in Hong Kong could break the record as the most expensive home ever sold in the world's most expensive housing market — and it's surprisingly modest The penthouse is on the 95th floor of 432 Park Ave., the controversial skyscraper that holds the title of tallest residential building in New York City, at 1,396 feet.

    Wealthy people are decking out their homes with underground basketball courts and $500,000 panic rooms, but there's a hidden danger in the trend of customization

    • The luxury real-estate market is hitting a point where homes are so over-customized that they're hard to sell.
    • High-end homes in luxury markets like Los Angeles , NYC and the Hamptons , and London are decked out with details like basketball-court basements, bedrooms converted into recording studios, extensive security systems, and $500,000 panic rooms.
    • These homes are being customized by both developers and homeowners.
    From underground basketball courts to private recording studios, luxury homes are hitting a point where they're so over-customized that they're hard to sell. Alec Traub, a Los Angeles-based real-estate agent with Redfin recently told Business Insider that the trend can be seen across wealthy LA neighborhoods including Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, and Bel-Air. "Customization is price dependent: You see more as you go higher in price point," Traub said, noting that the "magic number" where homes start getting highly customized is around $5 million. These homes are being customized by both developers and homeowners, Traub said. Read more: Luxury real estate developers are building out elaborate basements for multimillion-dollar mansions, and they include spas, tennis courts, and even ballrooms Developers, he said, will "add features they think people want or need, but they don't err on the side of caution." As Business Insider's Hillary Hoffower previously reported , wealthy people are sparing no expense to keep their lives private and secure, whether that means removing their homes from the grid or hiring architects to conceal buildings. And yet, there is, Traub said, a level at which homes become overly privacy- and security-oriented in a buyer's eyes. Wine cellar in custom home "I've seen examples where you walk into a house and every room has a camera," he said. "And not everyone wants that." Similarly, wine cellars and home gyms , two details developers have been known to add to homes, appeal to a specific buyer, but not every buyer. Read more: A property developer who's designed multimillion-dollar NYC penthouses says there are 2 major surprises in the luxury real-estate market right now On top of that, homeowners add their own touches that cater to their personal, professional, and family-based needs. "You'll see that entire rooms have been blown out to create recording studios," Traub said, "or a whole basement has been turned into a basketball court." Traub also said that while customization has long been a trend in luxury real estate, it's become particularly prominent as the idea of live-work spaces has evolved. Rather than having separate spaces, the two functions merge into a single space. Číst dále >>>
