Tiny home? Why not the Sealander?

Could Germany’s Sealander be the Ultimate Tiny Home?

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

It’s a trailer. It’s a boat. It’s a traveling trailer boat? Maybe it has a little identity crisis, but that doesn’t stop the German-made Sealander uncool. In fact it could very well be the ultimate ‘tiny home’ that goes with you wherever your heart desires, because this little piece of German …

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Paying with your smart phone or watch was so last year. Fans of Gelsenkirchen’s football/soccer club Schalke 04 (S04) will have a new way of paying for those brats and beers during games, and all it takes is handing over their newly purchased team jersey. No, fans won’t have to actually hand …

Aldi to Revamp Stores and Prices Amid Increased Competition

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

For much of its U.S. existence, little attention was paid to Aldi and its steep discounts on the everyday grocery essentials. As shoppers caught on, especially during rough economic times, the little discount grocery chain from Germany that was once seen as harmless by competitors became the new target to beat. …

Ellenator Puts German Teens Behind the Wheel Two Years Early for $5,000

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Germany is a little less giddy about putting teens behind the wheel at an early age, and while they can begin driving at 17, it isn’t until 18 that they can do so unsupervised. As is the case with any law though, there are loopholes to be found, and if …

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

When it comes to athletic footwear, there are really three major players in the American market: Nike, Under Armour and Adidas.

Axel Springer Investment Puts the German into Uber
