Big Inflatable Heads From Big Mouth Toys

A man needs a good personality test.  I have a particular dry joke I use; you might have Black Keys vs. White Stripes, lager vs. spiked lemonade, whatever weeds the winners from the schmuckoes.  If a person has to understand your over-the-top, frankly bizarre sense of humor, cut right to the chase by mounting this inflatable shark head in your room. Not a shark fan?  You think Big Mouth toys isn’t a step ahead of you?  They’ve also got the tiger.  You don’t quite get choices of sizes and colors, and they probably all smell roughly like a pool raft, Read More

The office is ever-changing. Fewer hours, slashed benefits, and constant uncertainty has led many of us to strike out on our own as freelancers or business owners. As a result, we’ve really started to redefine what the “workplace” actually is, and for some of us, that’s a great thing because we get to create the environments that we’ve always wanted to work in rather than the ones determined for us. In that spirit, we now take a look at our three favorite workplaces of 2013. 3. OfficePOD Earlier in the year, we covered the OfficePOD, a 2.1m x 2.1m work and Read More

Geek Pulse: Not An Amplifier…An ‘Awesomifier’

When the digital revolution happened to music, most of us kicked quality to the curb in favor of convenience (hey, we’re dudes and we generally prefer low-hanging fruit over things we have to work for).

There’s a DAC in every device that handles digital audio files because the signal needs to change from digital Read More

Temperfect Mug

The golden window of coffee consumption: that period starting when your coffee cools enough to comfortably drink and lasting until it becomes too cool to enjoy. The golden window provides maximum java enjoyment, but it’s just too damn small. Well the Temperfect Mug turns that tiny picture-window into a massive floor-to-ceiling looking-glass for drinking coffee at the optimal temperature. An extra layer of vacuum-insulation initially absorbs heat to cool coffee enough to not burn your mouth. It then radiates that heat back into the coffee over time to keep it at an enjoyable drinking temperature. Creator Dean Verhoeven has spent Read More

Give The Gift Of Cheeseburger This Holiday Season From Gift Couture

Nearly 7 years ago this coming January, Eric Nakagawa and Kari Unebasami discovered a photo of a fluffy grey cat with the caption, “I can has cheezburger?” They decided then to create the now iconic site, I Can Has Cheezburger? where loads of funny cats with captions would be displayed. The site has become easily one of the most well recognized on the ‘Net. What does this have to do with Gift Couture and its offerings? Not a whole lot, apart from when I first had a glance at their latest — Cheeseburger wrapping paper — that was my very first Read More
