In any case, if the classic Swiss style knife is too much for you, let’s introduce the Victorinox Swisscard Lite Pocket Tool.

As if that wasn’t enough, our tastebuds can only recognize 5 primary tastes – sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and unami – and if you’re a non-taster, you’re probably not even going to be able to do that. So it’s fascinating to report on a new product which aims to help things along…

Jak Bank – interest free ethical borrowing becomes a reality in Sweden

Ever wished there was a bank which was actually driven by more humanitarian goals than merely making more profit? Yes there are credit unions, cooperative and community banks, but they almost all still revolve around the idea of interest payments on loans and savings.
