Magnet Turns Any Audio Port Into A MagSafe Port

magzet

When I was 7 years old I was given a Walkman (that should date me). On the first day of ownership, I set it down on a table, with the headphones on my head, and walked away. You can imagine what happened after. This isn’t such a huge problem now that electronic devices are drop tested and built to withstand regular freefall trips to the floor, but the idea of having a magnetic audio jack that disconnects when you tug is brilliant. It’s a lot like Apple’s MagSafe connector, only for your audio cables; plug one end into your device, while the other accepts your earbuds or headphones or anything you use to listen, and disconnects when pulled hard. More importantly, the makers have thought about making it possible to leave the MAGjack in (that’s the side that plugs into your device) without your phone thinking you have something plugged, so the sound isn’t routed to your earphones unless they’re actually plugged in. In this fashion, you don’t have any “installation” to do when you want to listen, you just have to snap the two halves together and you’re good to go. It’s pretty nifty, and it’s also cheap at $35, which gives you one MAGcap (the part that plugs into your earbuds) and two MAGjacks.

Give Any Outlet USB Power With the SnapPower

snappower-charger-usb-wall-outlet

Almost every mobile electronic device comes with its own wall outlet-to-USB box, be it Apple’s cube or any other manufacturer’s transformer. But let’s face it: you lose the things more often than you misplace your house keys. With the SnapPower, you can easily add a powered USB plug to any of your home’s outlets without having to rewire a thing. Simply unscrew your current cover plate on an existing outlet, and screw the SnapPower instead. Special prongs on the inside will make contact with the wiring screws on either side of the outlet, giving that USB port 1A of juice. The two other receptacles will keep working normally, so it’s all sort of seamless. Considering it’s $14 a pop, it’s feasible to imagine retrofitting your entire home with these at a reasonable cost.

Wine Glass With Straw: A Sippy Cup For Adults

wine-glass-with-straw-595x607

They’re selling these Oenophilia Porto Sippers with an integrated straw as being better for ports and liqueurs, allowing “your hand to warm the spirits as you sip through the stem.” But let’s not kid anyone: there’s something childishly cool about getting hammered by drinking alcohol through a straw; these are sippy cups for adults. And since it’s a “wine glass”, you can totally pretend you’re being classy. A set of 4 will set you back $40.

Amazon’s Dash Button Lets You Re-order Everyday Stuff At The Press Of A Button

tide-dash-630

Amazon is all about eliminating as much friction between your wanting a product, and them delivering it to your doorstep; the more seamless and unintrusive the process is, the more likely you are to make the company money. Their latest effort in that field is the Dash Button, which lets you re-order everyday household items by simply pressing the button on a little dongle. Offered by invitation only to Amazon Prime members, the button is setup through the Amazon app, and connects to your WiFi. If you’re doing the laundry and you see you’re running low on detergent for example, simply press it; you’ll then be get a notification on your phone allowing you to either cancel, or continue your order. It’s a smart idea, and comes on the heels of a previous gadget, the Dash, which was a Wifi enabled barcode scanner. We’re not sure how popular that device became, but there’s a feeling Amazon is testing the waters with a lot of these things, and we wouldn’t be surprised if at least some of it eventually stuck as a normal, ubiquitous ordering mechanism amongst shoppers.

You Can Play Pac-Mac In Google Maps

google-maps-pac-man

April’s Fool is just around the corner, and that means it’s time for Google’s yearly tradition of making fun little pranks, and adding “features” to some of its services. This year, at least one of these features is the ability to run a fully-functioning game of Pac-Man right in your Maps window, even in your own neighbourhood. Simply go to http://maps.google.com, hone in on your neighbourhood or anywhere else you’d like to play, and press the Pac-Man button right next to where the Street View button is. The game might look familiar if you’re in a city like Manhattan, or a little wonky if you’re in one of those spaghetti-style-streets areas, but either way it works just like the real game, with ghosts and powerups!
