ApelPi Opso Batteries Let You Juice Your Android with an Apple
I’ve seen plenty of supplemental batteries for mobile gadgets, but they’re usually just rectangular bricks without any particular style about them.

Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Earrings Will Open Your Ears
The sonic screwdriver is the Doctor’s favorite tool and now you can wear one on each ear. They look pretty cool and stylish. The one drawback is that if you are going to be opening doors with these, you are going to have to put your ear to the lock and pray.

HTC 8X: Nokia Lumia 920 Doppelganger?
It looks like all the big companies now have got an 8 megapixel camera in their smartphones, and although I’ve had one for almost a year on my iPhone, I am somewhat disappointed that no one has released a smartphone with a better camera, except that PureView craziness Nokia released.

Category 5 Hurricane Simulator Will Blow You Away, Literally.

Category 5 Hurricane Simulator Will Blow You Away, Literally.
After living in New Orleans for a number of years of my life, I can speak from experience that hurricanes can be serious business.
