    After taking our previous umbrella guide and adding another 35 hours of research (and after testing every noteworthy umbrella currently available), we found that the EuroSCHIRM Light Trek is the best for most people. It was among the widest and deepest umbrellas when open and among the smallest when closed. That means it provides better rain protection without sacrificing portability, unlike much of the competition. And when we took to it with a 215 mph electric leaf blower, it handled the wind better than our previous pick.

    Palcohol is a powder than, when mixed with water, will turn it into Vodka or Rum. It’s great for camping trips, for example, where lugging big bottles of liquor can be a pain. Instead, the powdered alcohol will take up less space and weight, and can be mixed with water from a stream, or liquids you bring yourself (like juice). Each packet of Palcohol contains enough powder to make a standard concentration drink, if mixed with 5 ounces of liquid. The company also plans on selling flavoured versions of the powder, so that you may have a full standard drink (like Margaritas, or…

    With the world’s population closing in on 7 billion rapidly, it goes without saying that life on the planet is starting to get all the more suffocating, unless someone is able to solve the problem of space and resources which will be enough for everyone. The toilet is a basic necessity for everyone, but how do you make it all the more efficient?

Those might be the new wave of gaming entertainment in your living room, but there is a stark vacuum where backwards compatibility is concerned, as making the leap to newer hardware more often than not means leaving majority of your older games and progress in them (some which might have been the result of hundreds of gaming hours) behind.

  • Fan Remakes Resident Evil 2 With Unreal Engine As Proof Of Concept

    Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 was released back in 1998 meaning that it’s a game that’s about 16 years old. What this also means is that as far as graphics are concerned, it does seem a little dated, which is why fans have been clamoring for a remake of the game. Capcom obliged fans with a remake of the original Resident Evil which was met with huge success and has stated that if there was enough demand, they might consider a remake of Resident Evil 2 as well.While it remains to be seen if a remake of Resident Evil 2 will ever surface, a fan of the game and YouTuber, Rob Lima, has taken it…

    Lytro made a huge splash two years ago with the introduction of their “light field photography” camera, which captured images that could be refocused after the fact. It was groundbreaking innovation, although its functionality has since then been replicated in smartphones with software trickery. The Illum being released now, however, raises the bar again. Aside from it’s slick futuristic looks, it packs a new 30 to 250 mm lens with a f/2 aperture across the range which contains only 13 pieces of glass, in contrast with an equivalent lens from Canon that contains 22.

    Life is a funny thing. What seems important one day and consumes all of our time and energy eventually fades into another chapter of our past. Sometimes it takes a major event to put these moments and decisions into perspective, and so it happened that way for Vic Gundotra, the driving force behind Google+, who today announced he is leaving...

    My favorite iPhone 5S case is the Element Case Solace we reviewed last month. (Read it.) It is sleek, refined, protective, and it looks fantastic. In keeping with their co-branding partnership with Ducati, they have now released the company has now released the Element Case Solace Ducati iPhone 5S.

    24 Apr 2014 | 12:00 pm
    2015 Chrysler 200/Images by Author One in every six vehicles sold in North America is a midsize sedan, so it goes without saying that automakers have to remain very competitive in this segment. Chrysler, while making a presence, has failed to deliver a compelling vehicle consumers have been drawn to. All that is about to change with the 2015 Chrysler 200. Chrysler recently landed in North Texas with its first regional launch event for the new midsize sedan, and while driving time was brief, the all-new car did not fail to impress. It is clear the automaker has gotten serious about this…

    Andy Hull Manchester Orchestra is currently on tour to support their fourth studio album, Cope, which is described by lead singer Andy Hull as being ‘brutal’, ‘pounding’,  and ‘unapologetically heavy’.

    24 Apr 2014 | 11:14 am
    The idea is quite simple (all the best ones are, right?)- add a silicone sleeve to turn your iPhone into a Game Boy-like device. The G-Pad does just that, giving you physical controls just like the og handheld distraction. The sleeve is designed to work with a specific Game Boy Advance emulator for iOS that puts the controls on the bottom of the screen. The G-Pad slides right over the onscreen controls, replacing them with a button overlay. Everyone knows that all the best games were released back in the day anyway- Tetris, Donkey Kong, Mario, etc. Well at least the best for mobile phone…
  • Easily and Safely Remove Ticks with the Tick Twister

    Bug! Don’t need it. Bug. Don’t feed it. Is there anything more annoying and potentially painful and disease spreading than a tick bite? If you walk in the woods, it’s almost inevitable that one will get you eventually. Once those little buggers latch onto you or your pet, they’re really tricky to get off safely. With the Tick Twister Pro you can quickly remove the entire tick including the head (which burrows into your skin) without squeezing the bug’s abdomen to reduce the risk of catching an infection like Lyme Disease. To use just slide the tool over the tick,…

    A courtroom is a place of legal battling, a tactical chess game of procedure and laws, of minds and reason. This Approach The Bench Chess Set takes the analogy and puts in the form of a chess game. The chess pieces have been replaced with legal themed pieces such as the judge, lawyer, and Lady Justice. The pieces are raised up on the ornate courtroom inspired playing board. Each of these handsome chess sets is handmade in Pennsylvania. It’s even the official set of the Supreme Court Historical Society for whatever that’s worth. I don’t know exactly how playable this game is…

    Until now the electric motorcycle market has been a bit of a snoozefest, hampered by boring designs and limited range but, the Johammer J1 not only looks different, it is different. This team of Austrian designers claim to have built the first electric motorcycle with a range of 125 miles. They haven’t quite cracked the 200+ mile range of their combustion cruiser counterparts but a 3+ hour ride at a leisurely country road speed is all my butt can handle anyway. At just over 7ft long, with a top speed of 75mph, this is no little wannabe motorcycle. What is really impressive is that they pack…

  • Glow in the Dark Road Paint Makes Dutch Country Roads Safe, Sustainable and Colorful

    14 Apr 2014 | 1:36 pm
    We’ve all been there, driving down those spooky, unlit country roads in the dead of night. Some people are brave stupid enough to cycle or even walk down them. Now, thanks to a new glow in the dark paint, Dutch country roads will be a whole lot safer (although possibly spookier). The “photo-luminising” paint is the brain child of Dutch interactive artist Daan Roosegaarde who, in a partnership with civil engineering company Heijmans, was able to make his vision of safer, greener roads a reality. The paint itself is able to store energy from solar rays during the day and emit…

    Golan Levin writes, "My lab (in collaboration with Cory Arcangel, the CMU Computer Club, The Andy Warhol Museum, and the Carnegie Museum of Art) has announced a major dead-media discovery. We have recovered previously unknown, pure-digital artworks by Andy Warhol -- extracted from decaying Amiga floppy disks from 1985." Warhol created the works with Graphicraft, and the disks needed a lot of love and coaxing to get the files off them (to my mind, the story of the technical heroics is a lot more interesting than the pictures, but I'm not much of a Warhol fan). A documentary film about the file…

    Modular mobile phone design feels important; I've been excited about the idea since Xeni posted about Phonebloks last September. Now, Google and New Deal Design have floated a concept for a modular Android phone ecosystem called Project Ara that's got me even more worked up. Project Ara lets you swap modules (batteries, radios, cameras, screens, etc) around between "exoskeletons." They call it an "ecosystem" because third parties are meant to be able to supply their own modules for an open spec. A good overview in Wired discusses the possibilities this opens up (night vision, 3D imaging,…

This is pretty amazing, but don't get too excited about Cat's equipment. Remember, this is the company that bought an Ontario factory, got a huge, multi-year tax break out of the government, then, pretty much the day it ran out, demanded a 50% wage-cut from the union, refused to negotiate, then closed down the factory, fired its workforce just before Christmas, and split town, having waxed fat on corporate welfare.

I've given Aeropresses to a dozen friends, I keep one in my travel-bag, and I've got Aeropresses at home and at the office.

How do I know these jeans are really gay? Could it just be a phase? Actually, brand-new Gay Jeans look and act like any other pair of fine five-pocket denims. But as they get older, they can't help showing their true colors — literally! Through normal washing and wearing, their indigo dye will gradually fade away, revealing fabulously colorful yarn.

The video is three minutes long, but the person who filmed said he did it for over 3-hours. Did they watch the whole time? I would have. I'm kidding, I would have helped him back on his feet and put him outside like SOMEONE WHO CARES. Proof: I saved the spider that I found in my room before bed last night. "Seriously?"

    I’ve been using this all summer to clean my outdoor grill. It is by far the best tool I’ve discovered for cleaning the actual grill surface—the steel bristles do an excellent job scraping the grill, the double-handed body makes it easy to apply some extra muscle to the process—and the use of the heat from the grill and the steam created by the water that is released through the brush itself both cleans and seems to sterilize the surface. The best part is that you can clean the grill surface immediately after you are done using the grill—no waiting for it to cool down,…

Dark Sky is a weather app that focuses on letting you know how long until it starts raining or snowing where you are, based on your exact GPS coordinates. Or, if it is already raining, it tells you how long it will rain and how hard. Very handy if you are about to run out, but could also give it a few more minutes to let the weather move past. Of course, it gives you all of the other relevant weather info as well in a very…

    If you’ve ever tried to apply rotational force to a small part held with tweezers, then you’ve probably also spent time on the floor looking for that part. Get off the floor and buy the Gripster Nut Starter. It does a fine job of holding small nuts so they can be threaded on to parts and into hard-to-reach spots. Pushing a plunger on the back end causes four spring steel fingers at the front end to extend and spread. When pressure on the plunger is released, an internal spring causes the fingers to pull in and close, allowing you to hold small objects. I’ve found it’s also great for…

    Kevin Fitchard
    24 Apr 2014 | 3:22 pm
    T-Mobile has begun upgrading its LTE network with a new kind of antenna technology that will help fix one of the biggest problems in mobile: the inconsistent signals and connection speeds our phones see as we move through the mobile network. Anyone who has ever had five bars and a rocking data link to the tower, only to lose it 20 yards later, can attest to this. But starting in Chicago, Dallas and San Antonio, T-Mobile users will soon see those peaks and valleys become plateaus. The technology is called 4-by-2 multiple input-multiple output, or 4×2 MIMO.

    Lauren Hockenson
    24 Apr 2014 | 12:47 pm
    Facebook acquired mobile fitness and tracking app Moves for an undisclosed sum Thursday, promising to “work on building and improving their products.” With the acquisition, one might assume that, Facebook is placing a vested interest in the quantified self. But I would argue that the big asset that Moves brings to Facebook is a mature passive location product that could help the social media platform further refine its location data — and, in turn, its ad network. The key is Facebook’s nascent mobile ad network, which was a big discussion topic in Facebook’s…

  • KnowRoaming Helps Save The Overseas Roaming Bill

    Marcel Sim
    24 Apr 2014 | 5:14 am
    What’s most interesting about KnowRoaming’s offering is the SIM “sticker” concept. Your starter kit includes a sticker and an applicator, which you use to literally stick KnowRoaming’s device directly on top of the SIM that came with your phone. The sticker is incredibly thin — it’s designed to permanently sit atop your existing card, with enough clearance to fit into your phone. Of course, as with any fresh-off-the-line product, I experienced some hiccups (folded or bunched-up stickers) when trying to squeeze prototype stickers into certain…

    Like other robot caddies, you can have the X9 Follow Golf Trolley carry your golf clubs as you make your way around the course, controlling its movement via a remote. Unlike them, it can function without the remote, autonomously trailing its player, wherever the human overlord decides to go next. The X9 Follow Golf Trolley is able to follow its assigned overlord by way of the remote, which it pairs with over Bluetooth then decides where to go, depending on the direction the remote is headed. That means, if you drop the remote or throw it away in a fit of rage after missing a putt, your robot…

    Caitlyn
    24 Apr 2014 | 12:30 pm
    We react to sounds in a variety of ways. Music we like makes us happy, screaming will set us on edge, and hearing water running in a stream is often very peaceful. If you’re the type of person who likes constant noise rather than silence, then you probably want a lot of sound-makers around your space. If the sound of strumming on a guitar is something that you find peaceful, then you might like the Guitdoorbell. This is similar to door chimes, but instead uses a real guitar. This is a mount to be put up above your door frame, and while it isn’t a full size guitar, will be able to…

    We all had and/or have a special toy that we grew up with. Sometimes it’s a bear, blanket, or maybe it’s a strange stuffed animal like a puffer fish. Whatever it may be, it was more often than not a sort of security item, with which we felt safe from monsters in our own imagination at night, or dealing with new environments. While kids today still have teddy bears, they often pay more attention to technology as a comfort item. Giving kids a smartphone or tablet is a great way to entertain them for hours, but it should be more functional aside from just showing them moving pictures…

    Peter Murray
    23 Feb 2014 | 3:31 pm
    When I worked as the computer systems administrator at Medical Diagnostics, a community medical testing lab (from 1988-94), occasionally I would give a tube of blood for control tests. The experience involved the phlebotomists putting a tourniquet on my arm, finding a vein, inserting a needle and releasing the tourniquet so the blood would fill a vacuolated tube. The analysis machines at the time could sometimes do multiple tests on the same sample, but often patients had blood drawn into different tubes for haematology, biochemistry and serology. In 2003, Elizabeth Holmes, at the age of 19…

    My boy put Angry Bird stickers all over his computer when we first gave it to him. He is no longer obsessed with Angry Birds. Angry Birds are for little kids now, and he took off all the stickers. Even though we gave him some Goo Gone, there was still some horrible, sticky residue. The residue stayed there and we pretty much resigned ourselves to a disgusting computer until my husband tried a Magic Eraser on it. The result was… magical, to say the least. We couldn’t believe how well it worked to remove the dirt AND the sticky residue. If you are dealing with sticker goo on your…

    The snow hit my town today and I immediately hated the path in my town. I looked for some new paths to replace them with, but I didn’t like any of them either, so I made my own. First, I made this Gravel Path. It was alright, but it looked a little like it was floating on top of things instead of an actual path. This Earthy Paver is a little better. It just didn’t work with my new Winter Wonderland, so I created this Snowy Paver and I like it MUCH better. Now, I have new paths in my town and I can share them with the world so everyone can enjoy them. If you would like to visit my…

A visit to Katrina, will start out ominous, so you know right away that it’s a bad luck day. The Lovely Phone, is more ambiguous, however. It may just say something vaguely unfavorable. There is little you can do to turn your luck around. If you have the lucky item, you can make yourself about as lucky as a normal day. If you have your lucky item…

  • Pinterest debuts Guided Search, Custom Categories, improved Related Pins

    Lauren Hockenson
    24 Apr 2014 | 6:52 pm
    At a Pinterest event Thursday evening in San Francisco, CEO Ben Silbermann announced changes to the photo-based social media platform to help improve users’ ability to discover content. Silbermann introduced three key changes to the platform — most notably, a mobile-first Guided Search system that allows users to swipe through new categories and narrow down search terms visually to be rolled out today. “The one truism about Pinterest is the more people join, the more people discover, they have diverse interests and they should be able to enjoy them.” Silbermann said…
  • Is net neutrality dying? Has the FCC killed it? What comes next? Here’s what you need to know

    Mathew Ingram
    24 Apr 2014 | 6:16 pm
    The issue of net neutrality is back in the news again, thanks to some proposed rule changes by the Federal Communications Commission, changes that the regulator says are aimed at protecting a “free and open internet.” A chorus of critics, however, say the commission is trying to eat its cake and have it too — by pretending to create rules that will protect net-neutrality, while actually implementing what amounts to a pay-to-play version of the internet, one that favors large incumbents. It’s a complicated topic, and one that is prone to a certain amount of hysteria and hyperbole. So…

    Venture capitalist Ben Horowitz offered insight into the awkward transition of “baby” to “teenager” life stages of startups at Airbnb’s OpenAir conference in San Francisco on Thursday — including the recent sexism drama with Github. Horowitz didn’t review the details of what happened Github, which is funded by Andreessen Horowitz, but said that the problems were the result of unregulated company culture. “The more diversity of people you have, the bigger the company gets, the less people know each other, you have to protect people against each…
  • Forget speed, T-Mobile has started building a more resilient LTE network

    Kevin Fitchard
    24 Apr 2014 | 3:22 pm
    T-Mobile has begun upgrading its LTE network with a new kind of antenna technology that will help fix one of the biggest problems in mobile: the inconsistent signals and connection speeds our phones see as we move through the mobile network. Anyone who has ever had five bars and a rocking data link to the tower, only to lose it 20 yards later, can attest to this. But starting in Chicago, Dallas and San Antonio, T-Mobile users will soon see those peaks and valleys become plateaus. The technology is called 4-by-2 multiple input-multiple output, or 4×2 MIMO.

  • Nadella to analysts: I’ll be back (on the earnings call)

    Barb Darrow
    24 Apr 2014 | 2:52 pm
    The first bit of news out of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s earnings call debut is that he expects to keep participating in these conferences as part of an “on-going dialogue with investors.” This is something Wall Street probably wanted to hear — former CEO Steve Ballmer was not an analysts’ darling, and not a fixture at these events. Nadella was named CEO in February after a very public five-month search. In preliminary remarks, Nadella said cloud revenue more than doubled, and the Bing search business was also up to 18.6 percent market share. And, as…

  • PS Plus May 2014 update for US,UK

    Alan Ng
    25 Apr 2014 | 12:48 am
    Earlier on this week we talked about the hype and excitement over the upcoming PS Plus May 2014 update for US and UK PS4 and PS3 gamers. Now, the list has been finalized and we can now tell you what the free games will be on both platforms and in both regions. As most of you know, the games continue to differ depending on if you have a PS Plus subscription in the US or UK. This is often frustrating if one region gets a better game and the other region doesn’t, but this is a trend that doesn’t seem set to stop any time soon due to licensing and other legal issues.

    An update of Mortal Kombat (2011) launched in 2012, called Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition and this was the last release, but now that PS4 and Xbox One are here some fans want more from the franchise. The Komplete Edition came with all of the included DLC from the reboot of course, but now fans are expecting to see more from NetherRealm Studios with regards to a new Mortal Kombat game for PS4 and Xbox One. Mortal Kombat 2014 now looks unlikely, but this week we want to remind you of some strong evidence that a new Mortal Kombat game in 2015 may be a good possibility. Actor Kiefer Sutherland…

This one though is perhaps the most legitimate roster leak that we have seen thus far and it appears that most of you are divided on whether it could be real or fake. The image you see above shows the leak in question, also featuring Japanese to add to the level of ‘authenticity’, if you like. More importantly though, it gives us a look at some new characters that…

It’s not necessarily good news though as we can confirm that PS4 owners will still have to wait quite some time before they see the glorious Minecraft PS4 release date. As most of you are aware, the digital version of Minecraft on PS3 has been available for a while. Earlier this week we told you that Sony and 4J Studios will soon offer a physical copy of Minecraft PS3, which will be available in retail stores in May. Now, we have word from Sony that the Minecraft PS4…

    We have not really discussed POF as often as our readers would like, but since Plenty of Fish was down recently, it made us realize just how passionate people are about the service. This made us wonder just how often these problems occur, which then led us to take a look at the iPad app. It would seem that all is not well for the Plenty of Fish app for iPad because it is clear looking at the reviews that the app is in need of fine-tuning in order to rectify a few problems.

    The strange object in the picture below is – believe it or not – a bicycle. It’s not just any old bicycle, though. It is called ARION1 and it has been designed to try and break the world speed record for a pedal powered bike. How fast can it go? Well, the current record is 83.1 mph and the designers of ORION1 think that their vehicle will break the 90 mph mark. It has been created by students from Liverpool University and they say that it is 40 times more aerodynamic than a supercar like the Bugatti Veyron.

    Why would anyone attack another person just for wearing Google glasses? The truth of the matter is that we have no idea why either. However, it has now happened twice in San Francisco. In fact, it appears that anti-Google feelings are running high in the Golden Gate City, with users of these glasses being visible targets. The first known victim was the tech writer Sarah Slocum. She says that she was attacked and robbed in a bar in San Francisco for wearing the tech filled specs. This happened a couple of months ago and Slocum said that she had been abused in the bar by “Google Glass…

Good lord, we could get used to that kind of thing without much effort. Yes, we are talking about cool beers and lagers here and we don’t mind who knows about it. Sadly, modern life offers us few opportunities to take out the time necessary to give our glasses that freshly frosted look. After all, who has the time to put their glass in the fridge and wait for it to frost over before having a drink? That’s right; absolutely…

    On Tuesday, Apple surprised analysts by noting a modest increase in Mac sales in the March quarter, improving them by some 100,000 units over the year-ago quarter. The feat was impressive, as the PC market generally has suffered a major decline in demand which has also affected Mac sales. Though it was the company's MacBook line that lead sales, one factor that may have played a significant role was the demand for the company's latest Mac Pro....

Likewise, hardly a day goes by without a new lawsuit from an entrenched company, claiming that this new way somehow infringes upon, or unfairly penalizes, an old-guard way of doing business. This seems to be the way of things, but as technology marches on, our judicial system doesn't seem to be able to keep in step....

    Arnold Aranez
    24 Apr 2014 | 2:37 pm
    I’ve had the Samsung Galaxy S5 now for around 2 weeks – enough time to put it through its paces and see if it can keep up and hopefully improve my productivity. Yes, it’s an upgrade from the S4, but not a huge one. There are three things I really love about the S5 : performance boost due to hefty new 2.5GHz quadcore processor, IP67 which means that rain or pools or toilets won’t kill it and the improved battery life. I’ll go into more detail about the Galaxy S5 below. Design Whilst there may have been disappointment around the lack of change of the S5′s…

It’s always sad to see a promising product leave the ring, but Nike just didn’t innovate as fast as the market. Also didn’t help that many customers complained of faulty bands and non-intuitive UIs. Could this also be a sign that Nike knows some details of what Apple will be bringing out and therefore just paving the way for a gadget it knows will dominate anyway? Time will tell.

And some, like the lungfish, are adept at breathing air too. Theoretically, for a human to breath underwater all that’s required would be some sort of gill-like system. Enter Jeabyun Yeon, a student at the Samsung Art And Design Institute, who thinks he’s come up with exactly that.

    OnePlus today unveiled its first Android handset, their CyanogenMod-based OnePlus One smartphone, and it’s actually cheaper than I first thought. Ah I remember those halcyon days where the iPhone was the phone to beat and any decent smartphone offered from another company would be branded the next possible ‘iPhone killer’. OnePlus has set its sights a little higher with its One as it proudly proclaims it the “2014 Flagship Killer.” The One phone packs a 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD display with LTPS and TOL (Touch on Lens) technology protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.

    We are almost desensitised when it comes to new smartphone releases from Apple, Samsung and even HTC, but don’t feel bad because you’ve missed the news of the OnePlus One. Nope – to be honest I hadn’t heard of the OnePlus One either until a friend gave me a nudge (thanks Steve!). What makes this latest phone from Chinese manufacturer OnePlus interesting is that the company founded by ex-Oppo vice chairman Peter Lau, and the One is its first foray into the smartphone arena.

    Comparing Digg Reader and Feedly is pretty much like comparing apples to apples. Feedly offers a few more layout tweaks, but basically they are both pretty much the same thing – at least I thought so until I ended up with a pair of irritated corneas – and found a reason to switch to Digg. Long story short – I live in Japan, where every spring I find myself bombarded with extremely allergenic pollen. The two species that do the most damage are Japanese cedar and Japanese cypress.

    For the first time in the better part of a year (and the first time since I made the jump to Windows 8.1) I loaded up Google Chrome to have a play with a few extensions. To my annoyance the screen was a horrible shade of pink, which made the tab headings almost illegible. A search for the cause revealed that it was most likely a stereoscopic 3D setting – which was not applicable to my video card. At any rate, the purported solutions involved turning off functions of the video card that should not need to be switched off. A stop-gap perhaps, but not a fix. I thought there would have to…

The "kill switch" bill needed 21 votes to pass, but received just 19, with 17 nay votes, and one senator who did not vote earlier today, reports CNET.

She has a problem with her husband, and needs some help.

     Sizzling Bacon a Netflix Original With this Netflix Original, you might think you’re getting something good.  But don’t be fooled by the sexy imagery or tantalizing, golden-brown strips of luscious pork belly. In this 20 minute production of Sizzling Bacon, Netflix brings you a frying pan with two strips.  I was honestly disappointed, expecting that maybe they might go all out, in the way that Google tends to do. April Fools Day joke or not, I think I take my bacon a little more seriously, does that make me a food snob (probably)? I was tantalized at first. But you never can…

It’s not obvious to me what Facebook would do with a VR company, but I am sure that they have some ideas.  $2 Billion worth of ideas, at least I hope it’s at least that much.  It’s just that to me the two are incongruous.

    I don't know about the logistics of fitting a mug with a sippy cup top in my car's cup holder, but I do know about the logistics of being able to walk down the street drinking from my favorite ninja mug without sloshing and scalding a red beard onto my face with the best coffee drink on earth my mama makes me before work every morning (it's coffee mixed with half a pouch of powdered hot chocolate. The kind that also contains freeze-dried marshmallows). Those logistics require a disposable cup with a lid (cancerous to Mother Nature), a travel mug (not my favorite ninja mug), or an Ecotop.
  • Han Solo-Chewbacca Reversible Hoodie

    24 Apr 2014 | 9:40 am
    Life has been very difficult for some since the Mark Ecko reversible Chewbacca hoodie sold out. It was pretty much the Star Wars garment to end all Star Wars garments. But I like this new alternative alright too. Maybe even slightly better since when I'm not in the mood to full-on bare my Wookiee fur, it won't just temper me into a Rebel Alliance supporter, it will transform me into an entirely different badass character: Chewie on the inside, Captain Han Solo on the out. I can't lose! This isn't just a hoodie, it's the double-sided definition of awesome. Maybe even the 21st century…
  • TI:ME Slipper Sneakers

    Total comfort and relaxation without looking like a hobbit. This is the objective of TI:ME slippers. Though I would contend that the Kickstarter project's soft-soled, plush-lined, yoga-matted, walking-on-Air Jordans go one step beyond saving me from the hobbit foot aesthetic: the high-performance slipper sneakers will pretty much hide all indications that I'm wearing slippers at all. I'll look...normal. You know, like every other average dude who can't consistently hit a jumper or run up an down the court more than 4 times without feeling lightheaded, but who still thinks he's LeBron from the…
  • Death Star Cutting Board

    23 Apr 2014 | 3:47 pm
    And I thought it couldn't get any better than R2-D2 measuring cups. Well, really, R2-D2 measuring cups are better than a Death Star cutting board, if for no other reason than their deconstruct/reconstruct Russian doll attributes, but replacing my current slab of wood with a Death Star worktop saver will still be a crucial step towards transforming my mama's kitchen into the ultimate shrine to Star Wars. Definitely superior to my friend Cornelius' homage to Doctor Who bathroom. At 11.8" in diameter the Death Star kitchen companion is slightly smaller and less dimensional than its galactic…
