In its original form, the old Yamaha XV920 was more than just a little lame. It was unremarkable in pretty much every way. Greg Hageman of Doc’s Chops however, has made his name by transforming old metric dogs into mean machines. These aren’t quick strip-down builds; this bike got a new sub-frame, a full rebuild, and re-purposed parts from a half dozen other bikes. Clearly Hageman knows what he’s doing. Source
As you can see, this rubberized iPhone case is square. Innovative, right? You could also say the design is quite minimalist except for that giant embossed INCASE logo. If you’re cool with that though, it is a pretty clean case for your beloved device.
Fishing trips, bachelor parties, and drunken four-wheeler races, have claimed many a digital camera. That’s why Olympus created a camera for guys who roll like you. Their TG-1 iHS Tough model is beer-proof to 40-feet and dance-floor proof from a 6-foot drop. It also comes with a “memory card” to help you piece together what happened the next morning. Coming soon.
Most of us just entertain the occasional daydream about climbing the world’s highest peaks or surfing the seven seas. Georgetown physics professor Francis Slakey actually did it. You’re unlikely to follow in his footsteps but with his book, To The Last Breath, you can at least read about it.

This smoked salmon jerky from Patagonia—not the place in South America but the brand, would seem to present a bit of a conflict with the brand’s eco-minded marketing. But it’s not. Working with sustainable fisheries & First Nations fishermen in Canada, Patagonia is producing jerky that’s not just tasty, it’s good, too.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2, the follow up to the best selling video game of all time, will be out in November. When you buy this for your kids, and numbed by violence and bloodshed they turn into maladjusted sociopathic rejects, don’t be surprised. But chances are you’ll be buying it for yourself & you’ll be fine.
The original JamBox from Jawbone is a powerful little portable sound system. Now they’re introducing the Big JamBox. It’s twice the size of the little one but still super portable. It is also twice as loud which will drown out the crappy music those people down the beach are trying to blast. The battery lasts for 15-hours.
This four-drawer cabinet designed by artist Mark Moskovitz is called the Facecord cabinet. It looks like a stack of firewood. Isn’t that funny? The price tag is also somewhat amusing.
Unfortunately for those endeavoring to lead a paperless life, there is still a lot of dead tree material we must deal with: receipts, photos, business forms, contracts, etc. The Doxie helps you tame this pile of pulp. It is a wireless scanner that requires no computer – send your scans wirelessly to any of your devices or (gasp) straight up to the cloud.
