  • Celebrate The iPhone’s 7th Birthday With These Early Concept Designs

    The iPhone was unveiled January 7, 2007, but for years before that, the Internet was abuzz with rumors and early design concepts. Some even doubted if Apple would ever actually release a phone. The New York Times’ very own technology columnist David Pope wrote in 2006 that Apple would come out with a cellphone “Probably never.” Looks like he was wrong, as were the folks who came up with these designs. They serve as a harsh reminder of the slide phone obsession of the early 2000s. What were we thinking?

  • Pebble Steel Watch (Watch Wednesday)

    One of the original smart watches to have mainstream success, the Pebble Watch, now has a more chic look. An option for a leather and steel band. The main concern with the original Pebble was the playful look that was reminiscent of a childs swatch. The steel band option really distinguishes the watch and it’s capabilities. The case is forged of CNC-machined stainless steel in a brushed or matte black finish, but retains the ePaper display and app compatibility of its plastic sibling. Each one ships with a metal and leather strap giving you a good diverse choice for any occasion. So now you can act like James Bond without feeling like Jimmy Neutron. Pebble Steel $249

  • Most Expensive Versions Of Everyday Items [17 Photos]

    I spent $50 on a glass of single malt one time and felt like a baller. But now that I know there is such a thing as $300 toothpaste, I am harshly reminded that I’m more on par with a Victorian street urchin and I’m lucky that debtor’s prisons no longer exist. But maybe one day I can eat a $2300 hot dog that costs more than my first two cars or drink coffee that costs about as much as my rent. Until then, I’ll keep surviving off Burger King’s King Deals menu. It almost tastes like food!

With a 21x Optical Zoom, the Galaxy 2 is the ideal camera for anyone who takes pride in their shots, but doesn’t have the room to take a bulky DSLR with them everywhere.

All it takes is a simple tap of the smartphone and camera and devices will be more »

  • Perfect Timing for the Return of the adidas Crazy 1

    Everyone remembers the adidas “Crazy 1′s”. Big moon boot looking shoes, that we’re so unique it was only fitting they were the signature shoe for a then young buck Kobe Bryant. The shoe was first introduced to the world in 2000, bringing a bold fashion forward designed to the court. The Crazy 1′s re-release timing is more than perfect, it’s ironic. Kobe and adidas have since parted ways and with Bryant coming off the longest injury of his career, it’s almost ironic the release is dropping now. Inspired by the speed and sleek design of German sports cars, Crazy 1 features a curved, aerodynamic upper with molding on the heel and toe modeled after a car’s grill and lights. The upper is done up in a matte finish inspired by the popular luxury paint job of high-end automobiles, while the midfoot arch is exaggerated to form the shape of a car’s wheel well. A double foam collar provides added ankle support while the torsion system improves stability and traction during quick cuts. The adidas Crazy 1 is available for $125 on December 26 at adidas Basketball

  • The Ugly Christmas Sweater Is “Pumpkin Spice” Of Winter

    Remember when “pumpkin spice” was a rare seasonal flavor that you would find in the occasional beer or pastry product? It was so good but you didn’t need it in everything. Then it showed up in marshmallows, vodka, and even Pringles, oversaturating the market and completely ruining autumnal snacking. We are now facing a similar dilemma with the now ubiquitous “ugly Christmas sweater.” It used to be a fun theme for a holiday party or pub crawl, because you just did it once then forgot about it the rest of the year. Now not only are the sweaters, once relegated to thrift stores heavy with old lady donations, being produced by every clothing company on Earth, but marketers are taking advantage of the trend with winter advertising campaigns. It started when Coke Zero announced the online Sweater Generator where you could design your very own ugly sweater. Then Budweiser UK released the Knitbot, a machine that knits sweaters for designated drivers depending on the amount of times #Jumper4des is posted. The latest offender is Chipotle, whose London locations are offering a free burrito, burrito bowl, salad, or tacos to customers who wear an ugly Christmas sweater on Saturdays between 4 PM more »
