If you have the iPhone 4 you already know that the battery life sucks. This new backup battery/protective case gives you the freedom to spend twice as long away from an AC power source. And while you’re roughing it out there off-the-grid, you can use Mophie’s GPS-enabling app to keep you on course while you hunt for that next outlet.
There’s a pretty obvious irony here. A beauty product for the ultimate symbol of manliness, the beard? C’mon … Like, if you’re too lazy to shave are you really going to anoint your beard with oil to make it shiny and soft? Hold that thought. Before she orders you to shave it off, you might humor her by giving this all-natural beard sauce (made with essential oils) a try. You never know, she might let you keep it after all, big guy.

The combination of a 360lb. curb weight and 195 horsepower translates to speed that will peel your face off. Surprisingly, the anti-lock braking system is optional. Hold on tight.
Who came up with the term “sliders” for mini burgers anyway? When’s the last time a slab of beef slid down your throat? Okay, you see what we mean? They should be called “hand grenades” or “burger bombs” (especially when they’re stacked with bacon). Call them anything but sliders.
If shopping blogs stop posting new cameras every week maybe the manufacturers would quit introducing new models every couple days. Yeah, right! That’ll never happen, so let’s get on with it. This here is the Lumix GX1. It’s new. It has more features than anyone needs, like stereo sound to go with full HD footage; it also takes pictures, huge ones.
If you’re the “I lost my wallet” guy, don’t bother getting this one made specifically for travel.
