Athletes who take performance-improving drugs make all the headlines. But the culture of personal physical enhancement has pushed the use of steroids and HGH everywhere -- from Hollywood to the music industry to your next-door neighbor who doesn't want to grow old. Don't blame only the jocks.
In the week that Blu-ray consigned HD DVD to the remainder bins of history (and standard DVD will surely follow in the foreseeable future), Michel Gondry, one of the movies' most idiosyncratic innovators, unveils a quirky, nostalgic tribute to the antique charms of VHS with "Be Kind Rewind."
A Rolex has long been an accessory for showcasing status, savvy, and style. But recently it has also become a fast-appreciating asset. The watch market is full of long-term investments -- Julien Schaerer, a watch director at the auction house Antiquorum, showed us where to look.
Very few people have heard of the Most Serene Republic of Excelsior, but those familiar with South American island nations may know that its annual governmental budget is $950,000. Next season David Beckham will earn that every week.
In an age when more and more people are abandoning the art of handwriting in favor of the swift, impersonal blandness of e-mail communication, the pens manufactured by Italian company Montegrappa continue to provide a strong incentive for sticking to ink and paper.
