How many times a day do you think you unlock your phone with your PIN code? How long do you think it takes per unlock? According to the brainiacs at Motorola, it’s somewhere between 39 and 100 unlocks per day, at 2.3 seconds per unlock. Saving one to four minutes per day unlocking your phone is not going to drastically change your life, but it does add up. The Motorola Skip is an NFC chip that works with the Moto X to unlock your phone without a PIN code being entered. It clips onto your lapel, pocket, bag, wherever, and is about the size of a money clip. It also comes with three “Dots” you can use to create trusted zones on your desk/nightstand/coffee table so your phone won’t lock there. Just remember to keep the Skip secure because it might be convenient, but it can also be stolen and/or confiscated.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
