    How's this for exclusive? Lamborghini unveils its newest model today in Frankfurt, Germany with a pricetag of $1.38 million. And here's the best part: Lamborghini has already sold out ALL 20 of its new million dollar ride.

  • How A Bike Race Saved A Montana Cafe Wednesday, 12 Sep 2007 | 8:20 AM ET
    Mountain Bike Race

    We are 50 miles due west of Billings, Montana, just about where the double yellows break. The sign says, 'Welcome to Rapelje', and it has a few buckshot dents in it. We're not exactly in the middle of nowhere, but you can see it from here. "We were dying, and there wasn't anything slow about it."

  • Kohl's, Vera Wang: Ready To Wear, Ready To Go? Tuesday, 11 Sep 2007 | 12:15 PM ET

  • Sony, Time Warner Going Online In Major Way Tuesday, 11 Sep 2007 | 11:03 AM ET
    Sony Online Entertainment

    Media companies have a pretty clear model--they create TV and movie content, and they try to monetize that content over a number of platforms, from video-on-demand, to most notably, the Internet. Now media companies are fostering creative divisions to create significant amounts of content designed entirely for distribution online.

  • On Beckham, Player "Stocks, Madden: Your Emails Monday, 10 Sep 2007 | 11:27 AM ET

    Lots of catching up to do on your mail, as I’ve been on the road for the while and haven’t been that good in checking it.  The first note comes from Nathaniel Wydra, who wanted to talk about my insistence that a real life player stock exchange couldn’t happen...

  • Reem Acra: Designer 'Sews' Staying Power Monday, 10 Sep 2007 | 8:31 AM ET

    In a sex- saturated culture, ladylike and elegant are not often used when describing fashion design. While Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera have built empires on elegant and stately--they tend to appeal to a demographic older than twenty-something.

  • Fashion Week Looks 'Skyward'  For Buyer Comfort Friday, 7 Sep 2007 | 12:53 PM ET

    Baseball, football, basketball and other sports all have those expensive skyboxes in their stadiums, where the "elite" get to sit for a hefty price. But a skybox for fashion? Yup, they've got em too. The video here is my story on them from Fashion Week, that I did on last night's "On The Money."

  • Toronto Film Festival: Battle For Oscar Begins? Friday, 7 Sep 2007 | 11:17 AM ET

    I'm here at the Toronto Film Festival, a key market for Hollywood studios to buy indie films to fill out their slates. Everyone's looking for the next 'Crash' or 'Thank you for Smoking', two low-budget, high-grossing films that both sold here in Toronto in previous years. It's these low budget acquisitions that can, if you're lucky, yield the highest margins for the media...

  • Gatorade G2: Why "Lighter" Might Work This Time Friday, 7 Sep 2007 | 10:45 AM ET
    New Gatorade G2

    Pepsi announced today a group of new products, including G2, a Gatorade with half the calories of your normal variety Gatorade. While Pepsi called this innovative and new, it's actually part of a strategy that failed more 25 years ago.

  • Will athletes ever be traded like stocks? That question was posed to me on a panel yesterday on "The Call." I've been wondering this since the inception of ProTrade, an awesome virtual market that does the same thing in the online fantasy world.

  • 2008 Honda Accord

    I'm always amazed at the number of times someone will send me an e-mail or stop me when I'm out on a story and tell me something that they swear is the absolute truth. My favorite response: The Big 3 have no fresh ideas. Anyone who thinks that should check out the new Ford's with Sync coming out later this year.

  • Coors Light Gal, Game of Cornhole And Me Thursday, 6 Sep 2007 | 3:47 PM ET

    So I'm here in Indianapolis for tonight's NFL Kickoff. But with hours to go until the game, besides my segments I'm doing for CNBC, I have to find something to do with myself. Having done my tours of stadiums and arenas, I'm always up for a game of bean bag toss.

    Peyton Manning

    On the day the NFL season kicks off, we're running two stories on marketing of Reggie Bush & Peyton Manning. The New Orleans Saints running back will appear in 12 national spots (including promotional, non-paid commercials) this year, while the Colts' Manning will be doing his thing again--you'll see a series of fun spots coming out from the likes of Sprint and MasterCard today.

  • Chrysler & Press: An Exec Who Can Change The Game Thursday, 6 Sep 2007 | 11:00 AM ET
    Jim Press

    In the auto world, it's hard to say one executive can turn around a company. But there are certain people who are "game-changers". The type of executive with a great track record who could steer a company in the right direction. Jim Press, the former president of Toyota North America is one of those executives.

  • Joe Namath And Me: The One Thing In Common Thursday, 6 Sep 2007 | 9:12 AM ET
    Joe Namath

    What do Joe Namath and I have in common? Our face masks. At one time both Broadway Joe and I have worn a football face mask made right here in Litchfield, Illinois. Of course Joe wore his while winning Super Bowl III against Baltimore. I wore mine while playing against Kalamazoo.

  • Consumer, Credit "Concerns" At GS Conference Wednesday, 5 Sep 2007 | 12:25 PM ET

    If you were looking for a sign of the times when it comes to the mood of the marketplace, my location today may be a fair indicator. It is the first day of Fashion Week and rather than being under the tents in Bryant Park, I am at the Goldman Sachs investor conference.

  • Ford, Toyota, Honda Etc: Who's A Winner, Or A Loser? Wednesday, 5 Sep 2007 | 9:15 AM ET
    2007 BMW 335i Convertible

    Forget all the talk you will hear about people not wanting to buy a new car or truck. Some models ARE selling, and some brands ARE doing well while others muddle along. So with that in mind here is my list of who is cruising and who is losing in the auto biz.

  • Woods, Mickelson: Why They Don't Play Every FedEx Cup Wednesday, 5 Sep 2007 | 8:58 AM ET
    Phil Mickelson

    FedEx. We have a problem? Tiger Woods, who led the field heading into the Barclay's, the first FedEx Cup tournament, didn't play in it. Now, Phil Mickelson, who just won the second FedEx Cup tournament (the Deutsche Bank Championship) and is now in first place, isn't playing the BMW, the third tournament on the list.

  • The Perfect Contest: America's Ugliest Office Tuesday, 4 Sep 2007 | 1:59 PM ET

    I have found it. The perfect contest for the miserable office worker. Acco Brands is sponsoring America’s Ugliest Office. Enter at www.americasugliestoffice.com and you have a shot at either a 42” HDTV, or a TRIP TO HAWAII. Talk about bringing hope to the downtrodden! One mock-up of an ugly office has the chair doubling as a toilet, so you never have to leave. Nice. The contest runs through Nov. 30, and, so far, Jerry’s home office in Columbus gets my vote.
