Winner: Apple Watch is Really, Really Cool

It’s not necessarily a surprise – rumors of a wearable device have been circulating around Apple headquarters for years – but Tuesday Apple unveiled its plans for the Apple Watch. And it’s awesome. It comes in three designs: Watch, Watch Sport, and Watch Edition. For workout junkies, the Watch Sport can serve as a ‘comprehensive fitness device’ capable of monitoring distance traveled, heart rate, and calories burned. The medical applications are endless, as are the technological, but it will sync seamlessly with the iPhone. Here are our dollars, Apple. Take them. Take them all.

Loser: Ray Rice out of the NFL after abusive video released

We’ll hand the loser tag to Rice, who punched his then-fiancé, now-wife Janay’s lights out, and to the NFL, who originally handed Rice a mere two game suspension.

But for now, it’s fair to point out the egg on the NFL’s face.
