Jackalope Tee

Stio is an outdoor gear company based out of Jackson Hole, WY. They are fairly new, but have an awesome product line that’s both stylish and durable, and they have some pretty good prices. One of my favorite t-shirts is the Jackalope, which I actually thought existed when I was a kid. Yep, I was…



The Rolex Submariner

Back in the old days, somewhere around 1998, a co-worker of mine at the time starting wearing a Rolex watch, a gift from his CPA wife. At the time I shook my head at him and asked why spend so much money on a Rolex, when you can own a cheaper watch like a Timex…



NOVO Watch Review

The folks at NOVO Watch, a cool watch company out of Canada, were kind enough to send me one of their watches to review. I can say it’s one of the better watches I’ve reviewed over the years. My first impression was it’s weight. This felt like a real men’s watch. I’ve never owned a…

Rocketfish Bluetooth iPad Speakers

After much urging I bought the wife an iPad about a year ago. “Why an iPad?”, I said. We have the laptop, iphone, TV, books, etc. But alas, I got an iPad, gently used, on eBay. Fast forward a year and she still uses her iPhone more than she uses the iPad. Mucho more. But…




Press Coffee Maker

I’ve grown up drinking coffee from drip coffee makers, from home to whatever coffee shop is nearby. I really didn’t even think coffee could be made any other way. I mean, I heard of coffee presses, but I never considered buying or using one. That was until, while on vacation, last year. The waiter brought…




QLOCKTWO

QLOCKTWO by Biegert & Funk is for those who would rather read the time in letters than numbers. Actually it’s a very cool watch. I love twists on the old. And this twist will certainly get attention from people around you. The time is displayed in letters such “half past nine” in various places on…




Great gift under $30 – Tripod Stand for iPhone

I’m using my iPhone to take photos and movies more than my regular camera to take photos and videos these days. It’s just easier since I always have the phone with me. So that is why I think the Glif is by far one of the coolest accessories for the iPhone I have seen. Not…
