'The Gentleman's Wager' From Johnnie Walker Blue Label

We appreciate when brands like Johnnie Walker don’t just rest on their laurels. Instead of crafting some bland 30-second spot, the creative team behind the Scotch came up with this short film starring Jude Law. ‘The Gentleman’s Wager’ will make you want to pour a few fing...

Amazon Fire TV Is Best Value Streaming Box

Amazon Fire TV Is Best Value Streaming Box

We know you probably already have at least one of the three most popular streaming set top boxes on the market, but you're still going to want an Amazon Fire TV. The tech specs alone put it far above the competitors: quad-core processor (most others are single-core), 2GB of memor...

Behind the Scenes of Kate Upton Zero Gravity Photoshoot

Sports Illustrated has gone ahead and given us Christmas early this year with a behind the scenes look at Kate Uptons' Zero Gravity Photoshoot. Wearing only a gold bikini, and tumbling back to earth at a 45 degree angle does provide some interesting footage. Be sure to pick up th...

Coin All-in-One Credit Card

We're always looking for thinner wallets to avoid sporting a Costanza. Unfortunately a paper thin wallet usually only accommodates a few essentials.. That means that gift card you've been hanging on to since your birthday gets left in a drawer to be forgotten. But thanks to Coin...

Google Chromecast

Google Chromecast

Little devices that let your stream online videos from your phone, tablet, or laptop to your TV aren't new. What the Chromecast from Google does offer, however, is a price tag significantly lower than most of the other options out there. For 35 bucks, just pick up a Chromecast, p...

Fan TV

Fan TV

Cable boxes are clunky and feel like old electronic eyesores in our minimal entertainment setup. If you're ready to abandoned your old friend the cable box, consider Fan TV. The stylish device allows you to watch live TV, DVR shows, and stream as well. Perhaps the coolest thing a...

Xbox One

Xbox One

Putting a strong emphasis on things that aren't video games, Microsoft debuted the new Xbox One this afternoon. Don't get us wrong, the games look sick (at least the EA Sports ones they showed off along with a few others), but the way the device lets you interact is really awesom...

Plair TV Dongle

How many times have been watching a video on your laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android, smartphone, tablet, etc. while you were sitting on your couch? Unless you're nothing like us, there's probably a TV less than twenty feet away that it would look and sound much better on. Why don't y...

Logitech TV Cam HD

Skype has been the greatest thing for some (beautiful people) and the worst for others (Steve Buscemi). Still, no matter where you fall on the Adonis scale, you're going to want to both look your best and see the person you're chatting with in their best light as well. Doing this...

Avid Studio for iPad

Avid Studio for iPad

When Apple first rolled out the iPad, we immediately knew we'd be shelling out the extra cash for the 64 gig model. Sure, there was a very good chance that was far more storage than we'd need, but we were quite aware we'd be cramming that thing with a ton of videos. Letting that...

Quirky Ray Solar Charger

iPhones. Blackberries. iPads. Droids. iPods. Regardless of what your mobile device of choice is, they all have one thing in common—the battery is never big enough. Sooner or later, you're going to need a tether yourself to a wall outlet for a while or there's not going to be an...

VooMote One

VooMote One

The only thing we lose more frequently than our keys is the remote. Programming our brand spanking new universal remote to work with the tv, apple tv, Comcast box, receiver, media computer, Roku box and the lights was the single greatest victory we achieved since college... and t...

CineSkates Camera Sliders

CineSkates Camera Sliders

Creating high quality video without what we like to call the "Blair Witch Effect" is damn near impossible unless you have crazy expensive equipment. We love the fact that the DSLR can record HD video, but we spent enough money on the rig already that we don't want to spend anothe...

Roku 2 Media Streamer

Roku 2 Media Streamer

Be completely honest here people, if you still pay for cable TV you only do it to get your sports fix (potentially to host a Super Bowl party) and watch Food Network with the lady (we secretly watch it even when she's not around.) Between Netflix and Hulu, the mobile device apps,...

Zion Eyez HD Video Glasses

Occasionally there are products that are just too cool not to write about... even if they're only conceptual and might never get produced. The Zion Eyez HD Video Glasses are a perfect example. With 3 hours of battery life, 16GB of HD storage and built-in wifi, they'll give Tony H...
