ContourROAM2: An HD Action Cam on the Cheap
Being an avid road racer, I own several cameras that are designed to use suction cup mounts and stick to a car when you’re racing on the track. One thing about those cameras is that they are generally $300 and up to get a decent HD resolution camera.

007 Legends Video Game Now Shipping: No, I Expect You to Play, Mr. Bond.
I am a huge fan of James Bond. I grew up watching all the movies and always thought of Roger Moore as Bond more than Sean Connery. I have to admit though, out of all of the actors to play James Bond over the years, Daniel Craig is hands-down the best in my opinion.

A lot of people I know play it safe when it comes to their outfit choices because they don’t think they can pull off the more fashionable or edgy look. But if there’s one thing I learned, it’s that being ‘fashionable’ doesn’t mean you have to totally be out there.

Stargate Wedding Ring Spins You into a Whole New World
I love sci-fi, but I just never understood all of the hype about the Stargate franchise. I’m more a Star Trek or Babylon 5 kind of guy. Sure, it’s ok. I don’t think it’s great sci-fi.

3D and cards. Now those are two things you normally wouldn’t associate with each other, much less use in the same sentence. But that’s what Rocca managed to do with their card game which recently won at the 2012 Good Design Awards.
