The guys in Into The Cold don’t cut their arms off with a pocketknife, but there’s still some excitement. Follow explorer/environmentalist Sebastian Copeland and his partner on their 2-month, 400-mile walk around the North Pole where they brave crushing cold and the stark frozen vastness of the world’s most inhospitable place. Look at it this way, you don’t know how this movie ends. Isn’t that exciting in itself?
Power cords all seem to slide off the edge of the desk down into the dusty abyss. It’s enough to make you head butt the desktop repeatedly. Save your forehead, try the Pinza. It’s about as simple as putting a brick on top of the cords, but much smaller and cooler looking. Cast in Stainless steel & hand-polished, this heavy little nugget holds multiple cords in place, preventing the powerful urge to headbutt.
When you translate “murdered out” into German, it’s something like “ermordet draußen,” which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Maybe that’s why they named their new, ultra-limited edition M3 coupe the Frozen Black Edition. It’s got a custom satin finish that’s nothing but black—sort of Batmobile-ish and stealthy. Only 20 of these black stallions are coming to America, good luck getting on that list.
Even if your biggest adventures are weekend hikes or after-work jogging in the urban jungle, the Elementum Terra will keep you on track.

A clean, minimalist workspace often means hiding nearby there’s a giant rat’s nest of cables. Or worse, hanging out in plain view. This tricky desktop nixes the nest.

Who knows, mom might even think you’re joining up and moving out!
Anthony Weiner’s photos would’ve been way better if he had this versatile, collapsible monopod in his free hand. Stick it in the ground or hold it in your hand for self-portraits. With its ball head—the monopod not the congressman—you can shoot in any direction from vertical to horizontal. Way better than the portrait-in-the-mirror approach.
All you need are some skewers, because chicken satay is really just grilled chicken on a stick. Sure, the secret to a sweet satay is in the marinade, but the sticks score serious presentation points.

In the not-too-distant future, we’ll all be able to wave a magic wand and watch anything we want at any time. Until then, we can dance merrily around the flat screen about these new TiVo systems. What’s the big deal? Well, now you can record four different programs at one time. You probably won’t get around to watching any of them, but that’s beside the point.
It’s called the Hover Bike, but it has the same engine as most big cruiser bikes or small European cars. A 1100cc four-stroke motor powers a pair of Tasmanian Oak propellers taking you on the ride of your life. No, you won’t be commuting to work in this thing; not road legal. But, if you happen to be a cattle wrangler, power line inspector, filmmaker or aerial surveyor, this could be your new work vehicle.
