Flying at this time of the year? It’s a shame that the one time you need to travel, there’s also every reason to suspect your flight will be grounded. It’s that whole Midwest winter weather thing – and we’re certain it’s getting worse every year. But, that doesn’t seem to stop anyone from booking flights in and out of the region – and then being grounded when the airports start cancelling flights. And if you think standing in line while holding for an airline call center to answer your call is how you handle grounded flights, think again. Featured image above is of Flexion 2500mAh Power Bank Card – a nifty yet super-compact battery pack for charging your phone. The faveable team has the scoop on what you should be doing – and you don’t want to miss the gadgets that make it all easier to handle. Bon voyage!

DUBS Earplugs Block Most Noise, But Not All Sounds

DUBS-Acoustic-Filter-Earplugs

If you find yourself in noisy environments often, you might have considered earplugs. They can be a great way to give your ears a little break, but they can also be overkill and prevent you from hearing things you need to hear. Say you want to drown out the noise of traffic in a busy town center, you may not want to also block out the sound of the car honking at you to warn you they’re about to hit you. The DUBS Acoustic Filters Advanced Tech Earplugs are specially designed to lower the overall noise levels by 12dB, all while preserving sound fidelity so you can still recognize what’s going on around you. Your ears won’t hurt as much, and you won’t lose the use of one of your senses when it matters most. It’s currently unavailable, but normally costs $25.

Put Some Carbon Fiber In Your LEGO Creations

carbon-fiber-lego-1

LEGO stuff is pretty darn popular amongst our audience; you can get a sense of just how true this is by looking at our coverage of LEGO material over the years. So we think you might like the above Carbon Fiber Tiles. They’re just 1X2 tiles that are covered in a glossy carbon fiber layer. You can use these to augment your regular creations, and give them a little flair. It’s purely aesthetic, and like anything made just for looks, costs a pretty penny. A 10-pack of 1X2 tiles will set you back a $14 pledge, while two of those packs costs $25, a $3 savings. Delivery, if the campaign fully funds, would be slated for January 2015.

Samsung: Take A Self-Portrait, Not A Selfie

l1_sam_selfies_ads_of_the_world_aotw

With a little bit of imagination and creativity, advertising agencies can often take a dull message (“Hey! New point-and-shoot camera!”) and come up with an angle that makes the product stand out. Take the above Van Gogh self-portrait… It’s an ad by the agency Leo Burnett Switzerland for Samsung’s new “NX mini [camera] with a 3-inch flip-up display and interchangeable wide-aperture lens”, and features three iconic self-portraits, re-imagined as if they’d been made by taking a selfie. It thus tries to elevate the banal act of taking a selfie into something more grandiose, implying that this camera will somehow make them more special. Yeah… nice try. A selfie is a selfie and the ad won’t make us want to buy a dedicated point-and-shoot that doesn’t do much more than what our phones can do. But… it’s still a nice try. Gotta give credit where it’s due. So hit the jump for two more of these ads.

Deal Of The Day: 10% Off On PowerCube Original USB

redesign_PowerCubeOG_MF1_1214

Electronics need to remain juiced up, and that means you’ll have multiple power cords vying for the same outlets. That’s when power strips usually enter the picture, but they don’t all have to be boring eyesores. The PowerCube Original USB features 4 outlets and 2 USB ports in a cubic configuration, which prevents bulky transformers from blocking access to an adjacent outlet. There’s a resettable fuze that’ll blow at 15 Amps, so your electronics don’t fry in the case of a surge. Normally you’d pay $20 for this, but today it’s $18.
