Opposuits Releases Star Wars Suits


A little over a year ago we wrote about Opposuits’ PacMac Suits. We thought back then that these were the bee’s knees, but now that we’ve seen the company’s Star Wars suits, we have to reconsider. They come in two flavours called “Strong Force” and “Stormtrooper” and will definitely make… some kind of statement wherever you wear them. What’s even better is you’ll be able to own either one without breaking the bank, since they asking price is $110, with up to a 10% discount if you buy 10 of them at once.

You’re not supposed to have your phone in your hand while inside your car. You’re aware, we’re sure.

Hottest Chip In The World Is Sold In Coffin Shaped Box


The Carolina Reaper Madness chip is sold individually. Yes, we mean that you can buy one single chip, which comes packed in a sealed pouch, which itself is carried inside a coffin-shaped cardboard box. It’s the hottest chip in the world and gets its fire from the world’s hottest pepper, the Carolina Reaper. Paqui Chips, who make this “delicacy”, even decided to toss in some ghost pepper and chipotle seasoning for good measure. And why just one? In an interview with Mashable, Jess Day, Brand Manager for Paqui Chips said:

…quite honestly, that’s all that you need. That’s all that anyone needs. It’s the hottest chip you’ll ever have, I can guarantee you that. After you eat that one chip, trust me, you’re not looking to dig back into the bag and have a second one.”

It’s $5 for that one chip, which might seem like a lot for a single chip. But if you think that, you’re sort of missing the point.

Screw You Apple, The Daptr Case Puts The Audio Jack Back Where It Belongs


Apple, as everyone knows, “courageously” ditched the audio jack in the latest incarnation of the phone that turned the company into the behemoth it is today. That made the purchase of the iPhone 7/7 Plus somewhat of a dilemma for people who like to listen to music while their phone is charging; would it be worth it, knowing you have to also upgrade your headphones or use an unsightly adaptor? Well, the Daptr case attempts to solve this issue by giving you the audio jack back. It does this by lengthening the phone somewhat and cramming it down there along with a Lightning port, so you can keep using the phone the way you want. Oh, and a second Lightning port for some reason. You’ll add just 3mm of thickness, but a hefty 20mm of length to an already long-ish phone. It’s available in December for $49.
