Wrike Extension Turns Your Chrome Browser Into a To-do List

wrike

This article is brought to you by Wrike. -Ed.

If you’ve ever surfed a website and thought to yourself, “That’d be a cool feature to have on my blog,” or even, “This article should be required reading for my team,” and then wished there was an easier way to add it to your list of team to-dos — sit up and take note. Wrike has a set of project management tools that include a Google Chrome extension to connect your free or paid Wrike account to your browser. It gives you the ability to easily turn any webpage into a to-do; you can even quickly take a screenshot of the webpage and automatically attach it to the task for reference. When turning browser pages into tasks, the URL of the site is added to the task comments for your convenience. You can fill in any details about the to-do item (e.g. “Hey all, please take a look at this page for an example of a great website design.”) and add assignees, due dates, and select the folder in which to store the task. Suddenly, project management is as easy as clicking a browser extension.

Steel Star Trek Coasters Boldly Go Where No…

startrek_coasters_1

You know… we’re groaning at the thought of having to write yet another pun-filled headline that’s a Star Trek or Star Wars reference. So you get the idea. Here are some coasters with the Star Fleet insignia stamped on them. They come in a set of 5, are 4″ on each side, and are made from 3/16” thick, Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel with a felt backing, so they’ll feel heavy and premium. There are many other ways of keeping your drinks from ruining your tabletop, but very few that proclaim quite as loudly just which brand of nerd you are (and by the way, we mean “nerd” in the best possible way here). The Star Trek Coasters are made by Easy seller ApocalypseFab, and cost $44 for the set.

What’s The Easiest Way To Shave Your Head?

Headblade-ATX-All-Terrain-Head-Razor-1

With this cool HeadBlade ATX All Terrain Head Razor, of course. At least, we imagine that if you’re going to go for the completely bald look, you could do much worse than by using the above product. It’s a blade mounted on an ergonomic handle, which also features wheels. It looks like a mini ATV, and you’re meant to roll it around your noggin for a little bit, until you’ve no hairs left. The handle is rubberized, for comfort and convenience, and while it isn’t the first such product on the market, we haven’t seen one with wheels before. We imagine this contributes to a no-nick, no-cut shave. It’s $15 and comes with one blade.

Beer Tea Bags Enhance Cheap Brew Flavour

beer-hops-1

Sometimes being on a budget means you gotta get the cheap beer, instead of the premium beer. If your palate is refined enough to tell the difference, know that there may soon be a product on the market whose goal it is to enhance fully brewed beer. Hop Theory: Beer Enhancing Sachets are little tea bags that contain a mixture of hops, fruit peels, and natural flavors that, when steeped into a recently poured pint of beer, improve on its flavour enough to make you forget you only bought it because you might not be able to make rent this month. Or, maybe you like to customize your beer and the idea of steeping little packets of flavour is appealing to you. Either way, the first mix is called Relativity, and contains “cascade hops, orange peel, coriander seeds, and natural flavors.” Each bag is made from a soilon woven mesh filter that is derived from corn starch and is 100% biodegradable. One bag will infuse up to 4 beers, and at $25 for 24 packets, it’s a fairly inexpensive way to liven up your malted beverages.
