Oakley have always my preferred “eyeware”, if only because their boxes proudly state “…Iridium coated optics ensure that only true optical fidelity reaches your visual cortex”. Wow – give that man in marketing a prize!
I digress… Well, I just saw a press release for what must be the most stupid convergence device I’ve seen yet. Sunglasses and MP3 Player combines to form… the Oakley Thump

If I owned a pair of these babies, I’d need to wear my sunnies whenever I wanted to listen to my toons. Ok, I can flip up the lenses for indoor use… but the last person I knew who had flip-up lenses on his glasses was my Grandfather, and that must have been in 1985.
I’ll stick with my Oakley X-Metal’s I think
