    Whose this @MarkeDeFalco guy?

    I think the cooler should have a built in heater.

    and I guess now it should come with an Apple Watch charger built in, and integrate so I can see the inside temperature by glancing at my watch.  Wonder if Apple will come out with an Apple Watch Mini (you know, for women).

    @CoolestCooler "Enhancements"

    - Flip-out solar panel for charging
    - Interchangeable wheels (so you can put on "beach tires" for sand)
    - Built-in 9" cooktop w/ mini-propane tank (not sure where that would be -- maybe instead of the blender as an option)

    The link to the misleading apps story is wrong. It points to windowsw.com in stead to windows.com.

    Fixed, thanks for pointing out!

    The cooler should have one of those next Gen Qi chargers to allow charging phones from a distance without having to place it on the cooler or connecting a USB cable. - http://www.engadget.com/2014/07/31/qi-wireless-resonance-charging/

    [edit]

    Not too sure if it had speakers, but I wouldn't mind NFC speakers on it. Nothing too loud, but something that I can use to transfer my music to while out with friends
