Posted: 13 Feb 2012 03:04 AM PST

Electronic Translators are not new; even Talking Translators have been around for years. However, they keep getting better and less expensive. Models like the Nyrius Global 7 Language Talking Travel Translator can fit in any budget and are indispensable for the international traveler. The Nyrius Entourage7 features 7 cross-translated languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, [...]

Lava Pillow

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 11:38 PM PST

Lava in a pillow? That would probably make things just a tad bit too hot, but the Lava Pillow has the next best thing, making it the ideal solution to tired and achy muscles… with the next best thing after that being to stop doing things that make your muscles tired and achy. Instead of [...]

Week in Geek #7, 2012

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 09:34 PM PST

Last week we completed a hands-on review of the Metro Kart Rolling Cooler. Make sure you check it out for a great way to keep food and drinks cool on picnics, trips to the beach, at outdoor concerts, etc. There were also many cool new gadgets that we posted about, including the BioLite CampStove. This [...]

Beer Tasting Tool Kit

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 08:26 PM PST

This Beer Tasting Tool Kit isn’t just for the average beer drinker. It might look the part, but it’s certainly not a kit for some kind of drinking game either. The set contains everything you need to taste your beer–and I mean really taste it, not just chug it down–and note down how you found [...]

Masochist Mug

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 06:31 PM PST

Basically, masochists feel some sort of gratification from their own pain or degradation. I don’t think people are born as masochists; I think that as they go through life, they experience some things that eventually turn them into the person they are today. In any case, you don’t actually have to enjoy pain to get [...]

Wonder Threads

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 04:38 PM PST

Dress up your iPad in these Wonder Threads to make it look like a composition notebook or an interoffice envelope. I mean, if the emperor got new threads, then maybe it’s time your trusted Apple device got some new threads, too. The Wonder Threads are available in various sizes to fit not only your tablet, [...]

Captain America Sixth Scale Figure

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 03:02 PM PST

I had my doubts about the movie “Captain America – The First Avenger” but was pleasantly surprised at how inspiring and highly entertaining it turned out to be. Chris Evans portrays Steve Rogers, who had zero-point-zero chance of fighting on the frontlines of WWII, which was all he wanted to do. Puny and pre-pubescent in appearance, Rogers was [...]

Tree Bench

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 02:36 PM PST

A park with too many benches all over the place wouldn’t make for a very pleasing sight. But a park with too few benches doesn’t really make it that people-friendly at all, right? If you’re hosting an event and expect a lot of people to come, then you’d have to bring in a whole lot [...]

If your home or flat is strapped for space, then you’d obviously want as much multi-functional stuff in there as possible. It’s easy to find home appliances that can do more than a single task, but with furniture, not so much. That is, with the exception of the FusionTable. As its name suggests, this table [...]

Deo-Go Deodorant Stain Remover

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 08:26 AM PST

Deodorant. It happens even to the most cautious of people and even to the best of shirts. If you sweat a lot, you probably use deodorant a lot, too. So you might already have come across the occasional shirt or two and noticed some really nasty stuff going on near the armpits: tough, yellow stains [...]

Zombie Eyes Sleep Mask

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 06:32 AM PST

If you’ve ever had a bad case of insomnia, then you probably already know what it feels like to live like a zombie. Not that zombies are alive (and we all know they don’t exist), but you get the point. I once pulled an all-nighter not because I was doing homework or work, but because [...]
