Apple Pirate Flag Replica: It’s Better to Be a Pirate than Join the Navy
Former Apple typeface and graphic designer Susan Kare is selling hand-painted replicas of the Jolly Roger, a pirate flag that she and her Apple colleagues made back in 1983. According to former Apple programmer Andy Hertzfeld, the flag is a reference to Jobs telling them,“It’s better to be a pirate than join the Navy”, an assurance that the Macintosh team would remain tightly knit and independent despite the company’s growth.

Star Trek: TNG Funko Pop! Collectibles: Resistance is Futile
I have never kept secret the fact that I am much more Picard than Kirk. I never liked the original Star Trek series, though I enjoyed all the films from the ’80s. If you like action figures and Star Trek: The Next Generation, Funko has a collection of great new Pop!

This Five-Year-Old Is a Microsoft Certified Professional
When you hear the words “Microsoft Certified Professional” you probably either think of a white guy in his 30s or the fact that all that phrase really means is that the pro in question is certified to be able to properly install Windows and troubleshoot Windows installations.

Tribble Coin Purse Sadly Won’t Cause Coins to Multiply
Tribbles are sort of cute little furry characters that can cause all sorts of trouble. The little beasties multiply faster than rabbits and gum up the works leading to all sorts of problems. If you were overrun by tribbles, perhaps you could turn to using their pelts for something like this coin purse.

Vcemo Wants to Be the YouTube of 360º Videos
Virtual reality headsets are not just great for games. They’re also great for viewing 360º videos, which are the video equivalent of Google Street View. In fact, there’s already a 360º documentary about virtual reality. It remains to be seen whether the technology will be a hit with consumers, but vcemo is betting that it will.

TGI Fridays Deploying Mistletoe-Equipped Drones in Search of PDA

TGI Fridays Deploying Mistletoe-Equipped Drones in Search of PDA
TGI Friday’s, which is a name that I hate writing, on account of the fact that the phrase “Thank God It’s Friday” is somehow in possession of something, it’s going to be strapping mistletoe on to quad-rotor drones and hovering them over couples in an attempt to strengthen their immune systems via the germ-sharing act of kissing.

Review: Grain Audio OEHP.01 Solid Wood Headphones
I’ve tested and reviewed numerous pieces of audio gear over the years, and one company I’ve been really excited about over the last year has been Grain Audio. The company’s headphones and speakers have thus far bucked the trend of style over substance, perfectly balancing sound quality, build quality and design.

Star Trek Starship Wall Clock: We Need More Time, Captain!
This Star Trek wall clock boldly goes where no clock has gone before. Assuming that spot on your wall has never had a clock, anyway. This brushed metal clock has a dozen vintage Action Fleet Micro Machine starships indicating the hours, with DS9 in the center.

Laser Watch: Pew O’clock

Laser Watch: Pew O’clock
Unlike most of his creations, one of inventor Patrick Priebe’s latest weapons is discreet. It’s a digital wristwatch equipped with a powerful laser. It’s not as fancy as the similarly-equipped Omega watches that James Bond has worn a couple of times, but it is real and is just as sneaky.

The PowerUp 3.0 Gives You Flight Control over a Paper Plane

The PowerUp 3.0 Gives You Flight Control over a Paper Plane
