You know you love your wine when that’s the gift you get for birthdays and holidays. It’s also fairly obvious if the reason you decided not to have your teeth whitened was because the dentist told you that you would need to drink your wine through a straw for the rest of your life. But, that’s another story. If you are a big fan of wine, regardless of the colour, you know you need more than a bottle, a corkscrew and some glasses. Lucky you – there are plenty of gadgets for wine lovers on the market – and the faveable team has found the best of the best. Cheers!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that Apple is going to be launching their first wearable, the Apple Watch, on April 24th. Today is actually the first day that you can pre-order it online, and expectations are high for Cupertino. The breadth of things you’ll be able to do with this small device is impressive, and there’s already a solid line-up of developers ready to launch their apps alongside it.

One of these companies is the world’s No.1 spread betting and CFD provider. IG in the UK provides financial spread betting, Contracts for Difference (CFDs), stockbroking and forex to a substantial client-base, and has already developed trading applications for all major mobile platforms. Today they’d like to announce that they have an application ready to go for the Apple Watch, which will allow you to trade, right on your wrist.

On the same day the watch launches, you’ll immediately be able to do the following:

• Spread bet, trade CFDs, and buy and sell stocks

• Get iPhone app notifications on your wrist

• Open positions and view markets from your watchlists

• Open, edit and close positions, or see all open positions

• See upcoming financial events

• Use one-tap login and switch between accounts easily

In an interview with Ashley Cameron, the Technical Team Lead, we learn that despite the initial version of the app being ready to go, the plan is to listen to customer feedback, and integrate this data into later iterations. The team has a very short two-week release cycle, so they will be able to tailor the experience as close as possible to what their clients want, in as short of a timeframe as possible.

Deal Of The Day: 25% Off On Smokio Smart Vaporizer

smokio-1

My girlfriend quit smoking with an eCigarette. However, now she’s addicted to the vape; she puffs on it constantly, day and almost night. I suppose you do have to choose the lesser of evils, but it would be nice if she was able to wean off of this one as well, and I suspect with the Smokio Smart Vaporizer, that task might be easier. See, this bad boy connects to your smartphone and gives you stats. And as everyone knows, data is the key to everything:

Unlike your average vape, the Smokio works with its revolutionary mobile app to help you monitor your intake and reach your goals. The Smokio app is filled with insightful functionality to motivate you to keep going when the going gets tough.

ODii Grab-It Gadget Rescues Your Stuff From Your Car’s Black Holes

grab-it-gadget

Ever lost something between your car seat and the center console? Yeah, that’s the black hole. Usually once it falls there, it’s a goner. But with the ODii, a telescoping four-pronged claw and magnet, you stand a chance of getting it back. Measuring a total of 12 inches to fit in your glove compartment, the claw part extends to 18 inches, while the magnet attachment goes all the way up to 24 inches. That magnet, by the way, is a super strong neodymium magnet and is able to lift up to 2 pounds. There’s even a detachable LED light to make it easier to see when you’re getting closer to retrieving those earrings, or whatever. And the ODii’s uses aren’t limited to the car. Dropped something behind your couch at home and don’t feel like moving the whole thing? Reach for this instead. It’s an ingenious and useful tool to keep around, and at $20 as an early-bird in the Kickstarter campaign, is priced just right.

Ultima Evolution Supercar Breaks All Kinds Of Records

ultima-evolution

When you enter the dreamlike realm of the supercar, you’re not only paying for rubbernecking good looks and unrivalled exclusivity and status: you’re also paying for performance. British carmaker Ultima may just have put the world’s fastest accelerating car on the road with the Evolution. This thing is stupid fast. Just as a reference, know that the world’s current champion, the Ferrari LaFerrari does the 0-60mph in 2.6 seconds, and completes the 1/4 mile race in 9.7 seconds at 149.1mph. Most supercars hover around the 2.7s-2.9s range in their 0-60 times. But the Evolution? It gets to 60 mph (97 km/h) [in] 2.3 seconds, [and does] 0-100 mph (161 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, and 0-150 mph (241 km/h) in 8.9 seconds. The standing quarter mile (0.4 km) is reportedly achievable in 9.2 seconds, with the car hitting 156 mph (251 km/h)! That’s 0.5 seconds faster than the LaFerrari, which is huge!

Think about it: the Ultima Evolution reaches 150mph faster than some cars take to get to 60mph! It does this through a combination of a fuel-injected LS Chevrolet V8 engine, and a ridiculously low weight of just 950 kg (2,094 lb). Power options range from 350bph, to a blistering 1,020bph, which although lower than some competitors, is clearly more than enough given the car’s overall low weight.

There are lots of other things to say about this car, but you can read more on Gizmag’s article, linked below. And if you were hoping to get your hands on one, you’ll obviously have to pay, although not as much as you might imagine. Options start at £65,995 (about US$100,000), and we imagine go much, much higher than that for the top of the line models.

Air Vent Safe Features RFID Lock

air-vent-rfid-locked-safe-16793

If you have valuable stuff in your home, there’s a number of ways you can go about trying to keep it from the hands of would-be burglars. There are obvious safes, but these are typically a magnet for determined thieves, and then there’s the plain-sight approach, which might make some of you nervous. But what about an Air Vent Safe? This particular one comes with a set of RFID magnetic cards that, once hovered over a specific spot on the vent, will activate the locking mechanism and pop it open. There is no other way to tell this apart from a regular vent otherwise. It fits between two 16 inch center studs and instructions are included. It’s $219.
