Distance learning isn’t as easy as it seems. It seems like I discovered Appear.in a tad too late because I’m just a few semesters away from graduating with my Master’s degree, but you might find this service useful.
Looking for a special geeky gift for your Valentine this year? Check out these Empire Strikes Back hand towels. They are perfect for couples – who like Han and Leia – need few words to sum up their feelings.
Art Lebedev’s Optimus keyboards are elegantly customizable, but they’re very expensive and may not have enough keys for your needs. If you’re an avid user of Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Premiere, AutoCAD and other programs that have a ton of commands, check out the Shortcut-S keyboard.
If you have been reading Technabob for a while, you might recall back in 2012 when we mentioned some Star Wars lightsaber umbrellas that had surfaced. When these things first hit the market, they went for over $60 each, which is way too much money if you ask me.
Minifigs are often hated and feared by humans because they are different. Also because it hurts when you step on them. True believer Glen Bricker wants to build a haven for these extraordinary toys with his proposal for an official LEGO X-Men X-Mansion, aka Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
Back when Amazon Prime first launched I made fun of it and generally thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever heard. In my mind, I would never buy enough items for Amazon to cover the yearly fee to be a member.
Pizza is one of the awesomest things made since sliced bread. I’m still somewhere in the middle though, when it comes to these pizza-scented fragrances from the Demeter Fragrance Library.

Etsy shop BabbitsBoutique is selling this awesome handmade figurine of Riley, the fictional German Shepherd more famously known as the Call of Duty: Ghosts dog. He looks kind of harmless here though. He doesn’t exactly look like the sort of animal who can take down a helicopter.

If you had bet me that there would someday be two shows about finding Bigfoot on TV at the same time, you would have won that bet soundly. But here we are, and Sasquatch is bigger and hairier than ever.
It may not look like much, but Dentaku’s tiny board lets you follow in the footsteps of Leo Fender, Antonio Stradivari, Ikutaro Kakehashi and other musical instrument makers. It’s called the Ototo, and it’s a small synthesizer that can be activated by any conductive material and tweaked by a variety of inputs.
I’m probably dating myself by saying that two of my passions are Ford Mustangs and pinball machines, but I don’t care. Clearly, there’s a market for old fogies like me, or else Ford and Stern Pinball wouldn’t be teaming up to create a series of Mustang-themed pinball machines.
Valentine’s Day is almost here and as such, there is no shortage of red stuff on the market. Red versions of gadgets like smartphones can make great gifts. Just be sure you or the person you are gifting can live with red on a daily basis.
