Our record with audio technology reads like the dating history of John Mayer – a slew of long relationships, a bunch more brief ones and a regretful one-night stand (the minidisc).  Yeah, we’re happy with our mp3’s now, but just like thinking back on a past flame, we sometimes get nostalgic about our old cassette tapes.  That’s the inspiration for the Deckster (the nostalgia of dropping in a tape, not old hook-up buddy part).  The Deckster is a high end watch unit for your iPod Nano that draws its inspiration from slipping a cassette into your Walkman in the 80’s – you know, right before you strapped on your rollerblades.  The dual-motion slider allows the watch to be worn on either wrist and the unit is made of aircraft-grade aluminum housing and handcrafted bands.  Now, to build the perfect digital mixtape.

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.
