In Light Of The iPhone 6 Announcement…

huge

Which one of you does this hold true for? I’m so ensconced in Apple’s ecosystem, I have trouble considering the hardware superiority of other handsets and dismiss it offhand. Yes, I’ll be getting an iPhone 6 Plus, and may consider selling a limb to do so…

I am a sad, sad individual.

You can use it out of the box, and it will get more accurate as time goes on and it learns from your speech. It’s a full featured piece of software and today you can have it for $79.99 instead of $100.

FOBO Tire Monitors Tire Pressure, Connects To Your Phone

FOBO-tire

Most people don’t worry too much about tire pressure. They set it once after changing a tire, say, and then forget it. Oh sure, it’s not smart since you can get lower mileage and potentially get into an accident. But there you have it. Some of us, however, are a little more careful and a gadget like the FOBO Tire could relieve their low-tire-pressure anxieties. Using four somewhat goofy-looking tire sensors that screw onto the valve and connect to your phone via Bluetooth, you can know each tire’s status within 0.1psi. They monitor even when you’re not driving, so that you can be alerted in the middle of the night if you get a sudden pressure loss. They don’t need an external power source and instead rely on batteries which should last up to 2 years. You can even share your tire status with your friends, because you know, that’s really what they care about.

It’s $90.

Bed Butler Holds On To Your Things

bed-butler-1

Everything in life seems to be about compromise. One part of your brain would desperately want to keep the cellphone, the books, the contact lenses and the glasses within hand’s reach when you’re in bed. But the other part of your brain just doesn’t want to accept you having to buy a whole nightstand. Space is at a premium, people! The obvious compromise is to get a Bed Butler 2.0. Made from polycarbonate plastic, it securely slips under your mattress to hold itself in place, and gives you room for just about anything you’d want to have by your side. A 3-way adjustable divider even keeps things somewhat tidy. Oh, sure, it’s not the most eye pleasing thing in the world, but if space is limited in your home, there are worse ways to spend $42.

Deska Board Packs Some Features

deskaboard

The aim of most long boards is to recreate the feeling of surfing, of calmly floating above the road on a little cloud while carving your way around town. Many succeed in this regard, and the Deska board appears to have every chance of pulling it off as well, and look great doing so. The wide deck has a dropped foot platform to lower your center of gravity, while the deck itself remains light thanks to a carbon fiber, Kevlar, wood, stainless steel, aluminum and fiberglass sandwich construction. There’s a foot retention strap running along the top, which helps you keep your feet on the board, but which can also be removed in an instant. And should you have some windsurfing ambitions, there’s a spot on which you can attach a sail. The three oversized, 200mm wheels should do an easy job of absorbing road imperfections, and a hand-held braking system is available for those of you who prefer slowing down that way.

Getting your own Deska board will require a $390 early-bird pledge on their IndieGogo campaign.

Behind The Wheel: The All New 2015 Lexus RCF

sm2015 Lexus RC F 0191

I was fortunate enough to be invited to New York to get behind the wheel of the all new 2015 Lexus RCF, just a few weeks ago. A replacement for the outgoing IS F, this car features an all new chassis, all new body, an improved engine, and a slew of other engineering tricks that represent a more of a substantial step up than a gradual evolution from the previous generation. I got to spend around 4 hours driving this beast in the streets of White Plains and on the prestigious Monticello Race Track, and between those two settings, I was able to get a thorough feel for the car’s track driving dynamics, interior appearances, and city manners. In a segment dominated by the likes of BMW’s M4 and Mercedes’ C63, the RCF came out guns blazing and fists swinging in an attempt to forge a solid space for itself alongside them. With an impressive 467hp 5.0L V8 monster under the hood, the boys from Japan meant business, and I’ll spend the next few paragraphs letting you know whether they’ve succeeded.
