There is nothing worse than being in a meeting and having your iPhone start acting up. The thing about that little switch on the side is that it is not a mute button. It is simply a switch to silence the phones ringer. The offshoot is that other apps, Siri, or your entertainment files can still cause a commotion. In comes the Mutator ($13). It's a simple device that plugs into the headphone jack on your iDevice. When it's engaged it silences your device completely. And with a simple 90-degree twist you can disengage silent mode. The Mutator is simple, sleek and provides piece of mind.
Just before the New York International Auto show, Lincoln has released a Lincoln Navigator SUV Concept ($TBA) that features a nautical design which makes you wish you had a beach house.The outside of the concept is a vast improvement over the current model replacing a boxy look with a more rounded modern feel. Instead of the standard four doors, it comes with two massive gullwing doors and automatic triple step running boards.When you lift the hood, you'll find a 400 horsepower 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. For my tastes, I would've preferred to see a V8 at the minimum.On the inside, the first thing you'll notice is a widescreen display for every seat including the rear row. Additional features include park assist, active safety features, and an intercom system.If Lincoln can up the engine power a bit, they may have a winner on their hands.
Modscape creates beautifully simplistic prefabricated homes. The Cliff House by Modscape ($TBA) is their latest concept and it's absolutely breathtaking. The home was created as a vacation getaway and as a complete extension of the natural environment. It has five levels, where by the occupants would enter from the car port on the top level and work their way down each level. Top level 5 is the car port, level 4 is made up the main living area which includes the foyer, living room, dining room and kitchen, level 3 features two bedrooms and a bath, level 2 includes the master bed and bath, and the lowest level features the spa and barbecue areas. I just wonder what cliff side real estate is going for these days?

If your into night riding, then The Zulu Glow in the dark bike ($399) is just what the doctor ordered. The Zulu's paint is solar activated. Just put your bike in the sun for an hour and you are good to go for about an hour at night. The Zulu can be ridden as either a fixed gear or single gear bike by flipping the rear hub. The pedals of a fixed gear bike rotate with the wheels. Applying backwards pressures on the pedals acts as a break. When riding in single gear mode you can coast with the pedals stationary. The bike comes fully assembled and arrives in 5-7 business days.
