Logitech-Harmony-Link

Most days you get home, grab a beer, find the remote and proceed to settle into the crevice your ass has formed in the couch. Guys have been doing it since Don Draper days and the only thing that has really changed is now we might grab a micro-brew and mess around with our iPads while we half watch Louie. If you’re going to be partially invested in your Apple tablet anyway, why not have it be your remote as well. With the Logitech Harmony Link, your iPad (or iPhone, iPod or Android phone) replaces all those remotes you have spread across your coffee table. Find what’s on, control your sound system and more without ever leaving the couch. And, don’t worry, we’ve already penned a letter to Apple about installing a bottle opener on the back of the iPad 3 so you never have to get up. We have not heard back.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
