    Cigar Glass: A Double Old Fashioned Glass with Cigar Rest

    It’s hard for me to imagine a more vivid picture of refined, gentlemanly comfort than a person sitting in a room (probably a penthouse apartment overlooking a nighttime skyline), enjoying a stiff drink and a cigar. The people at Corkcicle have added a slight improvement to this picture with the innovation of the Cigar Glass. […]

    ‘Gunpowder’: Guy Fawkes HBO Miniseries Stars Kit Harington (Trailer)

    You may know Kit Harington from Game of Thrones, which has its fair share of complicated, long-running bloodlines and family trees. In real life, Harington has his own dramatic lineage – he’s a descendant of Robert Catesby, leader of the famous Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament in 1605. And now, he’s getting to play […]

    ‘Judd Apatow: The Return’ Netflix Stand-Up Special (Teaser)

    Some people aren’t aware that Judd Apatow, the full-on Hollywood mogul who has pretty much defined mainstream comedy for the last 12 years or so (for better and for worse), used to do stand-up. A couple years ago he returned to the stage for a set on The Tonight Show, and now he has his […]

    IHOP ‘N GO: IHOP Rolls Out Home Delivery Service

    Uh oh – previous generations learned about the nutritional hazards of eating at IHOP the hard way, but at least they had the walk to and from the car through the parking lot to burn a few calories off the top. Now, with the unveiling of IHOP’s new online order platform IHOP ‘N GO and […]

    ‘The Incredibles 2’ Teaser Finally Arrives (Video)

    It’s been, believe it or not, thirteen years since Disney and Pixar‘s The Incredibles first leapt and bounded into theaters, and since then talk of a sequel has been fairly widespread – superheroes are supposed to get more than one adventure, after all.

    DipClip: A Dipping Sauce Holder for the Car

    I often imagine what Jack the Dipper‘s car – which I have dubbed DIPP – is like. One essential component of this imaginary automobile would have to be a space for dipping sauce while popping McNuggets behind the wheel, a fantastical, impractical device for those of us who inhabit the real world.

    Spire: A Health Tracker Attached to Your Clothes

    The health tracker that can track your health even after you forget to put it on ain’t been invented yet. But Spire comes close, since the whole idea of it is that you can attach it to your clothes and then forget about it, with updates on your health, physical activity, sleep, and so on […]

    Sticking-Out Steak Burger: Japanese Fast Food Chain Makes Literal Steakburger

    In North America, we tend to think of the term “Steakburger” as a euphemism, one specifically employed by Steak ‘n Shake to refer to their cheeseburgers, which, while very good, are pretty much just regular cheeseburgers. But in Japan, the fast food burger joint Lotteria has made the word literally, descriptively accurate with what they […]
