The Three Stooges were and always will be the undisputed kings of slapstick.

It includes 18 discs with every one of their classic shorts fully-restored plus two discs of bonus material. Due out June 2012.

Wenger, makers of genuine Swiss Army knives for over 100 years has introduced a new line of precision multi-purpose tools and blades. Their HypeX Pendants are survival tools you can wear. There’s a handful of different models in this line of lightweight “toolery”, & they’re all designed for action. We’re not sure who’s really going to need a flint and a knife sharpener hanging from their neck, but the Wyss model features a bottle opener & that’s one tool that always makes sense. Available June 2012.
The Zooka wireless Bluetooth speaker bar is designed to work best with your iPad but it’ll also fit on your iPhone or laptop, too.

The Cinch is better than the standard SLR camera strap for two reasons. It features quick-adjusting pull tabs that let you crank it down tight or loosen it up to get the shot with one easy pull of the strap. The other improvement is that instead of using your camera’s two top strap mounting brackets, the Cinch mounts to only one and the other connector goes though the tripod mount which keeps the camera in a more natural and easier-to-carry position against your body. If you tote a big, heavy camera around, you’ll want this.
Gerber is taking the multi-tool into new territory with the Steady. Like their other hardworking pocket tools, it features all stainless blades, serrated and straight, plus wire cutters, 3 screwdrivers, bottle opener, etc. But since no weekend adventure is going down without your phone and camera, the key features of the Steady are an adjustable cell phone mount and a tripod mount for your camera.
Before it was co-opted by B-Boys and B-Girls as the breakdancer’s shoe of choice, Nike’s 1972 jump-off, the Cortez, made a name for itself as one of the era’s best running shoes. Now, the slim, classic silhouette is back again in a nylon fabrication and a whole rainbow of colorways. Go get some. Source

Thanks to Miveu’s upcoming unit that turns your iPhone 4S into a POV cam, you can capture sweet digital videos of all your exploits without being one of those guys with a little video camera suction-cupped to his helmet. The Miveu functions by way of a wide-angle glass lens that attaches with a sturdy protective phone case. The tactile shutter can easily be pressed with gloves or gear on and gives a cool perspective that makes the helmet heads look even dorkier. Dorkier is a word, right?
