Tom Brady’s Healing Sleepwear
When you’re the GOAT (Greatest of All-Time) like Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, you can probably sell ice to Elsa. But, does his new Under Armour sleepwear line actually work?
Are you ready for some science!? Far-infrared therapy uses far-infrared radiation, which refers to a subdivision of the electromagnetic spectrum and the thought, or at least the UA spin, is that it should help you sleep better which will lead to improved performance. In other words, these aren’t your Dad’s tighty whities.
Toys Continue to Evolve in Bizarre Ways
Tamagotchi. Furby. Hatchimals. Fingerlings. The care and feeding of robotic pets have been a staple of childhood play for over 20 years.
Japanese toymaker Tomy is hoping to breed the next hit with Rizmo, a fur-covered creature that evolves by changing its form the more you play.
When it’s ready to evolve, its eyes begin to glow and kids need to cheer on the critter to see how a baby ball of fur becomes a chatty, musical monster with a face and legs. And once it transforms, there’s no going back.
Parents are wondering if they clap and cheer will it also transform their tenacious toddler into a vision of tranquility.

Singer Protests Spotify via Spotify
Fans streaming the new single by pop singer Esthero have discovered it’s been deliberately doctored to protest against Spotify’s royalty rates.
Ninety seconds into Gimme Some Time, the music dips, and Esthero explains the full version of the song will only be available on her website.
The money Spotify generates is “really not a liveable income,” she explains.
“I really hope you enjoy my music enough to actually go and support and buy the song from me.”
Speaking to BBC 5 Live, Esthero said the protest “came from a general sense of frustration and powerlessness,” at the payments offered by services like Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal, which can be as little as $0.003 per stream.
