The Gentleman's Guide to Life App

Listen, any app icon that is simply a fine mustache is going to get our attention. In the world of bros and guys that have all but lost any bit of chivalry, we still like to fashion ourselves as gentleman. If you're trying to become a reformed bro and don't know where to start, d...

Meshmedium MA-1 iPad Sleeves

The importance of protecting your gadgets isn't something that we need to explain to anyone reading this--especially when it comes to iPads. The base model (16g) with WiFi and 3G costs $529 without tax and shipping (we know because we just had to replace ours), which isn't an inc...

Full Metal Jacket Diary iPad App

Matthew Modine has been involved in a lot of things you've probably seen: The Dark Knight Rises, Weeds and Any Given Sunday, but he will always be best known for his role as Private J.T. "Joker" Davis in Full Metal Jacket. During filming, Stanley Kubrick encouraged him to keep a ...

MINUS-8 Just Reinvented the Field Watch

MINUS-8 Just Reinvented the Field Watch

Since its inception, the field watch has been a simple and durable timepiece that can be relied upon for years. With the launch of the Anza Field Watch, MINUS-8 has put a fresh spin on an absolute classic. Eschewing bells and whistles for a clean aesthetic, the Anza is set to be your everyday watch, the watch you strap on regardless of what the day has in store. With a sub-$200 price tag and a smaller case (38mm), the Anza is MINUS-8’s most accessible timepiece yet, meaning it won’t break the bank and it will look good on almost any wrist. Drawing inspiration from modern machinery and an easy livin’ West Coast vibe, the Anza is both rugged and relaxed. Proof of that ruggedness can be found in the case and lugs, which are both machined from a continuous piece of stainless steel and ready to accept the strap of your choosing. Back the Anza now and get ready to meet your go-to watch.

Chameleon Clock

Chameleon Clock

Wallpapers and backgrounds have a short shelf life. You can only look at the same thing so often until it becomes boring and bland. It's just like a viral video that you've seen a million times, at some point it loses its hilarity (grape lady aside). With the Chameleon Clock app ...

Sounder Stand

Sounder Stand

We have a love/hate relationship with purchasing wooden amplifiers. We love how we can ditch wires and electricity and have a perfect product in one portable piece of wood, but we hate the feeling that we could have built the damn thing ourselves. The thing is, we've got DIY pr...

Quip iPad App

If you’re reading this, and own an iPad, you probably have at least one Twitter client on it. At first, the official client was garbage, so you went with something like Tweetdeck. Then the official client got pretty good and maybe you switched back (or just use the clients for ...

Rockmate iPad Appplay

Rockmate iPad App

For some reason, we don’t care about the fact it costs an extra few bucks to add sweet potato fries (or extra cheese) to anything, but $3 for an app is criminal. We’ll happily pay $1 for just about anything, but what about $3? Rockmate by Fingerlab is definitely worth $3. It ...

HAND Stylus

HAND Stylus

Touchscreen devices are fantastic... until you try to get detailed with a finger drawing. It's too fat. It's always too fat. You just can't get the precise lines you want with pointer and we don't like it. So we bought a stylus. It's still fat, or the nib broke off, or you have t...

JaJa Pressure Sensitive Stylus

JaJa Pressure Sensitive Stylus

The last time we tried to use a pressure sensitive device on the iPad we ended up with ink everywhere and a broken iPad. No notes, no appointments and no sweet car drawings were created in the process, only a stupid experiment gone awry. Ok, so we didn't actually use a pen on the...

Rocketfish, otherwise known as the Best Buy house brand, doesn't make too many new-fangled gadgets and doohickeys that you haven't seen before. But since they have a name like Best Buy behind them, what they can do is make all the stuff you were already thinking about buying for ...

ZDAY Survival Simulator for iPad

ZDAY Survival Simulator for iPad

If you need proof that video games don't always prepare you for real-life situations, go pick up a gun and fire it like you would in Grand Theft Auto or grab a football and try flinging it around like you would in Madden. Wait, you're not Payton Manning? These things take some ...

Amplifiear

Amplifiear

So many of the products we find are simple in premise. We see them and think, "Dammit, why didn't we think of a portable computer so we could swim in gold coins?" Then it quickly dawns on us, even if we had that brilliant flash in our skulls, we wouldn't have a clue how to begi...
