Taking his cue from the success of Alien, James Cameron takes an opportunity to continue the story of Alien. In Aliens ($8), the planet’s been colonized but they’ve lost contact with the colonists. So, Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) goes back to the planet with a bunch of bad ass army guys to see what’s up. What she finds there makes her prior trip to the planet look like a walk in the park. Bill Paxton's character makes the movie. This is one movie that gives you a good example of why it’s never a good idea to tick off a mother. Starring Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn, Ball Paxton, Paul Reiser and Carrie Henn, this movie is a fitting sequel to a great movie!
The M48 Ranger Hawk ($40), is an all around tactical tool. It is made from 2cr13 stainless steel and has a fiberglass with nylon reinforced handle.

This axe is extremely light and with the provided sheath can be carried all day with little to no fatigue. Also included is a black?nylon cord wrapping and a directional compass.
The Glyph Personal Mobile Theater ($499) looks like a big set of headphones, but they're much much more. The Glyph is a mobile theater system. Using a simple HDMI input it can display anything in your library. The Glyph uses something they call a Virtual Retinal Display which utilizes one million micromirrors in each eye piece to reflect images directly to the back of the retina. The result is an image that is high def, clear, and immersive. You get none of the side effects of other near view screens like screen door effect, pixellation, nausea or disorientation. And when you're not using the screen, it flips out of the way and you just have a big set of headphones.
