Diner ($4), written and directed by Barry Levinson is the classic coming of age story where you get to see great talents in the early stages of their careers. Diner stars Steve Guttenberg, Mickey Rourke, Tim Daly, Ellen Barkin, Paul Reiser, and Kevin Bacon. It takes place in 1959 and follows a group of friends who are struggling with their impending passage from childhood into adulthood, like Boogie (Mickey Rourke) who works in a beauty salon and studies to be a lawyer at night. Diner is a great dialogue driven movie. One of the best scenes is when Eddie (Steve Guttenberg) makes his wife take a football test before they can get married. Check it out the scene after the break.
There is nothing like the soothing scent of your favorite beer after having had the day from hell. The new Craft Beer Candles ($27) are available in three refreshing and delicious smelling scents including the rich Coffee Stout, fruity Juicy Pale Ale and floral West Coast IPA, each wonderfully unique. Hand-poured in the USA into 12oz candle holders, which can still continue to provide joy by acting as a glass! After a bit of clean of course.
When you get an opportunity to carry less stuff in your daypack, you should take it. The Memories Cable ($120) features 64 gigabytes of storage, a USB 2.0 connector and a lightning connector for your iPad or iPhone. The Memories Cable allows you to transfer all of your files in both directions just like a regular USB. But it also enables you to free up space on your iPhone or iPad by backing up your files directly to the cable. Imagine filling up your phone on holiday, and now instead of having to delete great shots, you can just back everything up to your charging cable. A perfect solution for those looking to rid their packs of extra gear.
The ClearView CLIO Wireless Invisible Speaker ($300) is the first virtually invisible speaker that disappears in any room. It features ClearView's Edge Motion Technology that instead of pushing sound waves from behind uses piezo-electric actuators to stimulate the sides of the clear acrylic glass stereo transducer to create an efficient piston-like motion. This produces rich clear 360-degree stereo sound from both sides of the speaker. Aside from clear stereo sound the speaker also includes a 2" down-firing woofer. The CLIO is now available for pre-order with Shipping expected in March.(more…)
A bit ago we did a write-up on the 3DSIMO 3D Pen that allowed you to draw 3d objects free-hand. The Lix 3D Printing Pen ($120) takes 3D drawing one step further by creating a 3D printer that actually looks, feels, and operates like a pen. The Lix 3D Pen lets you create anything you want in the air without worrying about paper or limiting your creative expression. The pen melts colored plastic, letting you create rigid and freestanding structures. The heating of the hot-end nozzle is done by plugging the pen into any USB 3.0 port. The Lix Kickstarter campaign is going on right now, so check it out.
