Deal Of The Day: 32% Off On Nomad Stand for Apple Watch

nomad-stand-1

If you went to the trouble of getting yourself an Apple Watch, you’re likely to want to do its modern design and high price some sort of justice. This means, among many things, that you might be receptive to elegantly designed charging stands, like the Nomad Stand for Apple Watch.

The Nomad Stand has a modern design that’s minimal enough to fit on nightstands without getting in the way. It’s all about the details with this stand, too. A hidden channel keeps your charging cable out of eyesight, a copper alloy base adds stability, and the high-friction rubber footing makes sure the Stand and your Apple Watch aren’t going anywhere.

– Aircraft grade, precision-cut aluminum stand holds your Apple Watch
– Space between the Apple Watch & Stand makes sure your Apple Watch isn’t scratched
– Hidden cable routing channel acts as passageway for Apple Watch charging cable
– Minimalist design complements bedsides & desks w/o taking up too much space
– Copper alloy base adds weight to make sure your Stand stays stable
– Non-slip, high-friction rubber footing keeps the Stand on its surface

Normally $50, it’s $33.95 after today’s rebate, shipped for free as always.

This Swiss Watch Has A Drop Of The World’s Oldest Cognac In It

Cognac-Gautier-1762-and-Armin-Strom-Cognac-Swiss-Watch-Featured-image-672x372

Why? We don’t know. But it looks like independent Swiss watchmaker Armin Strom, and its chief horologist Claude Greisler, decided it would be a good idea to convince the owners of the world’s oldest known Cognac bottle, the Cognac Gaultier 1762, to part with 40 drops of its content. Each drop was then carefully inserted in the mechanism of the Cognac Watch. It serves no functional purpose, other than to perhaps impress your rich friends, kind of like Romain Jerome’s Moon watch. We don’t know how much each of the 40 pieces cost, but all have been sold in an exclusive resale event prior to the official launch at Baselworld on March 20, 2016.

The Selfie Toaster Is A Thing That Exists

hm-selfie-toaster-

Taking narcissism to a whole new level, the Selfie Toaster makes it possible to make your breakfast in your own likeness. It achieves its results by using metal plates with your likeness cut out; when the toaster operates, the heat will only brown the parts of the bread that make up your face. When you order the thing, it will be shipped with a demo plate so you can see how it works. You’ll then have to go on the company’s website and upload a picture of yours and after a two week wait, you’ll be all set to delight yourself and your possible guests with bread adorned with your beautiful portrait. Best part is that it’s super inexpensive, at $39 from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Hot or Cold, The Yecup Keeps Your Drink’s Temperature Constant All Day

all-weather-smart-mug1-640x533

You might think you’re looking at a Thermos, but not quite. The Yecup is a connected drinking vessel with a 10,000mAh battery and enough tech to heat up or cool down the liquids it holds, and keep them there all day. If it senses the temperature deviating from what you’ve set, it’ll fire up its mechanism and bring it back. It uses Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone, through which you can make all the adjustments you want. Left in the morning with a hot coffee but suddenly realized you’d rather have an iced one? No problem. And of course, when you’re carrying a large battery around, you can use it for other things, like charging your phone or other electronics. The Yecup is made from stainless steel, and is easily washable, though it’s recommended not to stick it in the dishwasher. The 12oz. cup is fully funded on IndieGogo, and will cost you a $125 pledge.

Just think of all the fun you’ll have inviting your friends over for a BBQ, only to show them your meats being cooked in the Po’ Man’s Charcoal Grill.

Dyson Redesigns The Hair Dryer: Meet Supersonic

dyson

Dyson, best known for their vacuum cleaners, recently launched its first foray into an entirely new area: beauty products. In revealing the Supersonic Hair Dryer, the company also gave reporters a glimpse into the four year effort that went into its creation. The dryer itself is said to be much quieter, and lighter than current top-of-the-line models. And… it also looks like the future!

Four years in development, the company spent $71 million (and took four years) to make its hair dryer, with the sort of specifications and research backstory of a car. The press release explains the 600 prototypes, over 100 patents pending, and a cast of 103 engineers that worked on it. It helps to explain the price ($400), but even salon-level hair dryers hover around the $300 mark.

The name at least partly comes from their efforts to make it quieter; by increasing the blades on the rotor to 13, from 11, they realized the device started generating sounds beyond the audible range for humans. Dogs, on the other hand, may not appreciate your morning blow-dry routines.

So yeah, it’s $400, and will only be available at Sephora starting this September.

How To Decide if you Need Smartphone Insurance

6421426449_6917f33a7e_b

Featured post by Todd Green. -Ed.

Whenever you sign up for a new cellphone plan, there is one moment that is always the same — the moment where you are asked if you want insurance. There are many different opinions on what you should say in that moment; some people swear by cell insurance, while others decry it as a scam. Below, you’ll find some shopping strategies to help you decide if insurance is right for you — and where you should get it.

Look at the Costs
At the heart of it, deciding on phone insurance is about a simple equation: How much does the insurance cost versus how much the phone would cost to replace. Newer phones, of course, are going to have a higher replacement cost, and getting insurance for your latest pricey gadget is probably a good idea. On the other hand, the cheap pay-as-you-go model you pick up at Walmart may not be worth the monthly premium. Instead of thinking of phone insurance as a monthly expense, you can think of it as putting aside a bit of money for a new phone with every payment.
