Samsung Gear 2 Smart Watch: Bye Bye Android Hello Tizen Thumbnail

It seems like only yesterday when we wrote about the Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch; now just a few months after the announcement of the original Samsung smart watch, the Korean manufacturer has announced the Samsung Gear 2 smart watch.  Notice the exclusion of “Galaxy”, which has something to do with Samsung ditching Google’s Android [...]

Mini Clubman Concept with 6 Doors!! Thumbnail

Early in the 21st century, when the new Mini (owned by BMW) came into the market, it was an instant success; BMW took advantage of the success of the little British car and started producing a whole lineup of cars, including CUV’s, coupes, convertibles, and wagons.  Now there is a new version of the Mini, [...]

There’s Something Different About The “Nadir” Watch Thumbnail

Over the years I’ve come across a lot of unusual watches that don’t display time in the “traditional” way; we’ve even written about quite a few very unique watches in our watch section.  The Nadir watch is another watch that displays time unconventionally, in a way I’ve never seen or even thought of. I didn’t [...]

abandoned cuban prison

If you were living in Cuba during the 1920s, then I suspect Presidio Modelo was the last place you wanted to end up. It was a panopticon prison in the truest sense of the word, and though it's thankfully no longer being used as a prison, you can still visit. According to Wikipedia, "the prison [...]

So, today I'm going to pick on one of my family members a bit. You see, a few weeks ago while they were sitting at the computer, they received a phone call from Microsoft. Microsoft called to kindly inform them that their copy of Windows was out of date, and if they could just download [...]

textsecure private messenger

As much as I hate to admit it, I'm guessing you don't really give a shit about privacy, or at least the privacy of your text messages. I think it's fair to assume that you won't be marching or protesting any time soon. Even after the leaks, revelations, whatever you want to call them, nothing [...]

Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake Thumbnail

We’ve previously written about the Jaguar XF Sportbrake (fancy word for station wagon) and the Jaguar XFR-S sedan, but we’ve never written about the Jag XFR-S Sportbrake.  Because up until now that combination didn’t exist, so Jaguar decided to spice things up for a limited number of European customers.  The XFR-S Sportbrake will not be [...]

man pulling out a wallet

Believe it or not, the wallet that you carry says a lot about your personality. Your clothing and accessories are an extension of yourself. Love it or hate it, every time you pull out your wallet to make a purchase, others will make judgments about you based upon the style of wallet you're holding. That's [...]
