The Clapper rigged up to Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s ‘Got Your Money’
These Vans Era wingtips come in black, white (pictured), navy, tan, and sky blue. They are sick to say the least.
Also, if iPhone apps are your thing, check out the one from vans.
Headcase’s Etch A Sketch iPad case is a nice, HP Tablet-sized option.
The newest version of the mophie juice pack air for iPhone 4 protects your phone and greatly extends power for all your smartphone needs via its built in battery system. This version is pretty sleek and matches the shape of the device quite nicely – wrapping the corners and adding a small curved bump shape to the back of the phone (the prior version for the 3G phone nicely matched the curved shape, but thickened the phone somewhat more).
The DTV Shredder from BPG Werks is a cross between a skateboard and a Segway with a Sherman Tank. The DTV is available commercially and they even have team riders.
Save your ears, get better sound, and still answer the phone. Nixon’s Nomadic Mic headphones are sweet. They come in a few colors but Black is where it’s at!
I have been back and forth on the 3rd party dev tools for the iphone and the use of flash but, lately I am singing a new song. Apple has changed their tune about developing for the iOS. Now that I can use Flash and any other tool to build apps, I am no longer held hostage to LOE’s and Tech limitations….
Do you have a brilliant idea for an app? If so, Titanium Appcelerator will help you bring your idea to life. It consists of one set of tools that allows you to build applications that will run native to the platform. Watch the video after the jump and give it a try.
Sure, I understand the benefits of having a virtual girlfriend…the on/off switch, low standards etc.. But, this is insane. The Wall Street Journal reports of a down-and-out resort town an hours train ride outside of Tokyo, called Atami, where “more than 1,500 male fans of the Japanese dating-simulation game LovePlus+ have flocked to Atami for a romantic date with their videogame character girlfriends.” Apparently, guests have gone as far as paying for double occupancy in hotels there, just to make the experience more real. It’s definitely time to get into the LovePlus+ screen wiper racket.

I know a number of folks using iPads exclusively for business purposes, namely around areas like client presentation, sales, emailing, presentation creation/display, and as photography and design portfolios. TSA travel rules do not require it to be placed through x-ray machines separately, either – frequent fliers can get away without carrying laptops, especially for short jaunts. I know one guy who uses it exclusively, even using the LogMeIn iPad app to remotely log into his desktop Windows machine when it comes time to do anything particular. Their only problem is the lack of truly presentable cases, since great appearances can be kinda helpful when you’re trying to win someone’s money. Options are somewhat limited to either the default Apple folding case, and from there it drops to lots of faux vinyl and plasticized or rubberized too-casual cases. The solution: Vaja Cases. Full grain Argentinian cowhide, unaltered, natural looking. Hard to find in the US, but there are some options to buy at Amazon.
