Garmin-VIRB-Ultra-30-Action-Camera-2

Competition is a good thing. When a worthy challenger arises, it forces the old guard to up its game. If you believe this, stay tuned for some seriously awesome GoPro cameras. The Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 is one of the first truly worthy adversaries to the first name in action cameras. The pint-sized action cam boasts a 1.75″ LCD touchscreen, superior image stabilization, the ability to live stream to YouTube, and it records in 4K. On top of that, it offers voice control, so you can simply tell it to record and it will do so, which is a nice feature for when you’re in the midst of some epic action. It’s equipped with sensors and GPS (it is Garmin, after all) to display data like speed, elevation, heart rate, and G-force. It comes in waterproof casing and houses a high-sensitivity mic. If you’re in the market for an action camera, it’s worth considering.

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.
