man-2-engineering-the-alpha-book

Any book that starts talking about juice cleanses and gimmicky fitness devices belongs squarely in your trashcan. If you want a straightforward, no-nonsense approach to refining your body, check out Man 2.0 Engineering the Alpha. The book simply puts forth a 4-week diet and exercise program that will start the slimming of that double IPA gut. Based on the idea of natural hormone optimization (it’s science), the book claims that within a week it can help improve your brain function, boost you energy, and increase your sex drive . . . no problem there, am I right? High five! The best part is, it’s not as stuffy as 99% of the health books at your local Barnes & Noble.

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.
