VooMote-One

The only thing we lose more frequently than our keys is the remote. Programming our brand spanking new universal remote to work with the tv, apple tv, Comcast box, receiver, media computer, Roku box and the lights was the single greatest victory we achieved since college… and then we lost it. We found it eventually, but not until after we missed the latest episode of *insert favorite sitcom here* and by then it was too late. The VooMote One is the answer to all of the programming headaches, lost remotes and proprietary battery chargers that always seem to break. Plug your iPhone into the VooMote One, download the app and relax. The only downside of this little gem is the fact that it isn’t currently available in the United States. Hopefully you have some friends in Europe that can ship it to you.

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.
