Read and Write Amazon recently announced its newest version of its Kindle, the Kindle Scribe, which had one major upgrade from previous versions: users can write on it. The Scribe will allow users to mark-up documents such as PDFs and other files via a stylus/pen, which also employs a digital eraser on one end. Make notes in textbooks, add comments to various reading materials, edit Word documents, jot down memos, and much more. The Scribe even mimics the sound of pencil on paper when users write. Storage memory ranges from 16 to 64 gigs, with each Scribe featuring a 10.2-inch paperwhite display with built-in light, 300 pixels per inch, and optimized font technology. The Scribe will be available on November 30. From $339. amazon.com Top Shelf Security Store your most prized whiskeys in this bulletproof safe from Whisky Vault. The Vault Mini is designed to be displayed on a bar or counter and fits up to 15 normal-sized bottles. Made from solid steel and bulletproof glass, the vault features a tri-spoke lock handle, a UL certified La Gard electric keypad for passcodes, and three locking bolts. Based in Taiwan, Whisky Vault makes each Mini to order and numbers every one, making them a collector's item. Customers can even opt for airbrushed artwork on their vault (with additional charge). Whisky Vault also makes a larger version, the Grand, that fits more than 20 bottles and features two bulletproof windows. Turnaround time for the Vault Mini is about three months. From $3,600. whiskyvault.tw Precious Cargo The electric bike craze has been sweeping America for a few years, and now bike companies want to show how useful European-style electric cargo bikes can be, especially in the face of high gas prices and climate change concerns. Babboe's three-wheeled Curve-E even goes one step further and is specially designed with children in mind, featuring two benches and safety belts to seat up to four youngsters at once. The Curve-E is also perfect for groceries, deliveries, hauling boxes — anything that fits inside — and it even offers a Maxi-Cosi carrier for infants and special baskets for dogs. It features seven pedal-assist gears and can reach a top speed of 15.5 MPH (Babboe intentionally maxed out the speed on this child-carrying version for safety reasons). A full charge will last more than 35 miles. From $3,000. babboe.com BY RYAN THOMAS @ranchandcoast ranchandcoast.com 72 NOVEMBER 2022 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
