Here’s a great idea that actually happened. Instead of pitching used bottles into the landfill or running them through the energy-intensive loop of recycling, they’re simply cut, refinished and used as tumblers, thereby significantly tightening the loop and reducing the footprint, two amazing reasons to tip one back.
This saw is called the Trans4mer. Cool name, right? Imagine the delight of the poor bastard in marketing at Rockwell who spent months trying to figure out a catchy name for a cordless jigsaw that converts to reciprocating saw, when he finally came up with this one. How many beers do you think the dude drank after dropping this bomb of a name on the product managers? The answer is many. And if you don’t know what a reciprocating saw is, you don’t need one yet.

But if you have the wireless Mac keyboard you’ve got only the top-row numbers to work with; not ideal. You number-crunchers will jump with glee at this new app that turns your Magic Track Pad into a number pad with the ability to add custom shortcut buttons.

Sorry. If you were hoping for another folksy dose of ghost-written autobiographical fantasy from our ex-president Dubya, you’re bumming. This is actually a CD from the 90s British pop band Bush. 15 years ago, they were very adept at writing perfect radio songs. Will their winning formula still compute in 2011? Listen and decide for yourself.
For the past 75 years, Barbour Motorcycle jackets have been the standard by which all other road-worthy wearables are measured. To celebrate the coat’s Dodranscentennial (75 years) Barbour has released the Steve McQueen capsule collection. It includes the belted, waxed Baker Jacket and other various antique-ish chotchkes. If you know McQueen, you care. And even if you don’t, the collection is still wicked.
Can anyone explain the link between the combat video game series Call Of Duty and the Jeep Wrangler? Didn’t think so but regardless, Jeep is launching another beefed-up special edition for the release of Activision’s latest Call Of Duty: MW3. Not sure hardcore gamers will fully appreciate the 32-inch mud tires and burly bumper upgrades but they look good to us.

They should really just be up-front about it and call the MV800 the PervCam. Seriously, Samsung cites the ability to shoot “discreetly” from any angle as the main attribute of this model. Think about that for a second. Okay, now go buy one.
