Timex Tide Temp Compass Watch Review

- - 1 Comment

A watch is a watch, right?  For the most part.  The difference between a $100 watch and a $5,000 watch is negligible.  Both will tell the time accurately and in all likelihood even display the date.  For all that added scratch you’ll probably end up with a chronograph, an opulent...

Beer Cave

Beer Cave Walk-In Cooler & Kegerator

The traditional Man Cave includes an oversized flat screen TV, an obnoxiously large home theater system that the wife hates, pool and/or ping pong table, a bar and hopefully a a few full sized arcade machines.  Sorry, but if you just built one of these, you’re behind the proverbial curve....

iPad Counter Top

So we don’t know anything about this iPad countertop installation.  Needless to say, from a practical standpoint it looks like a terrible idea.  Spill something and you can say goodbye to your iPad.  But lets hope there is some sort of protective casing over it that allows the touch interaction...

Robotic Extension Cord Winder

Extension cords are a dime a dozen, no question about that.  Having one that extends the length of your garage at a moment yanking, sans cord tangle, is a different story. The Ceiling Mount Cord Reel isn’t just a garden variety extension cord.  In addition to being a storage system for...

Apple has released a Java security update that they say removes “the most common variants of the Flashback malware” that’s been affecting people’s Mac computers. Apparently, the Flashback Trojan enters computers via infected websites that prompt users to download a browser plug-in (ie Flash) in order to see more content....

You’d probably think twice before you messed with anyone sporting a pair of those old school brass knuckles, right?  However, you might break into laughter if anyone whipped out the Knuckle Case and threatened to kick your and your iPhone’s butt. The case is made from solid aluminum, so there...

We hate to break it to you, but most of us still don’t drive to work in a flying car.  What can we say?  We’re quite the disappointment, at least as far as the Jetson’s are concerned.  However, nor do we live in a Utopian environment, which is to say...

M48 Ranger Hawk Axe

Guns, guns, guns.  Sure, they’re abundantly dangerous but everyone knows in the case of an apocalypse machetes, throwing knives, shurikens and axes will be the weapon of choice.  After all, bullets are finite and with the world in complete turmoil and chaos, manufacturing will likely come to a grinding halt. ThinkGeek is staying...

RYOBI 40v String Trimmer Review

- - 25 Comments

Last year I reviewed RYOBI’s line of 24v outdoor power tools, and liked them all very much.  This year they have released the bigger brothers to last year’s models – the 40v monsters.  Now back then I had what could only be described as a “perfect” experience with the 24v...

Plantronics Gamecom 780 Review

Deciding on a set of gaming headphones is surprisingly difficult. There are too many sets to choose from, and like with everything else we all want to buy the latest and greatest. With audio equipment that is almost always a poor purchasing plan, though gaming equipment has the exact opposite...
