The internet has enabled a variety of blessings to enter our lives–and we’re not referring to Jenna Jameson. With the added connectivity of the masses, the ability to buy, sell, trade, and now rent things peer-to-peer is a snap. Speaking of, Snapgoods.com is a new website that specializes in the micro-renting business. Have a nice digital camera? Someone in your neighborhood doesn’t, and needs one for an art project this weekend. You set the parameters and Snapgoods sets you up with reputable and responsible people in your network and community. The renter gets his art project done without forking out for a new camera, you get a little extra cash, everyone’s happy. So take stock of your belongings and see what you can rent. You might be surprised with the coin it brings in.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
