Grill Starter Fishing Pole and Rifle
Thursday, August 27, 2009 6:24 PM

 

 

I think that every man needs to know how to operate a grill. I mean it’s kind of like a right of passage to get your first grill and start grilling food for your friends. What better way to start a grill than with a fishing pole lighter? I mean I like fishing and but what if fishing isn’t really your thing? That’s fine you can go with the Rifle or Shotgun Lighters. I think these are super cool and a fun little grilling gimmick. You can find these at the ever so popular Bass Pro Shops.

$9.99 each @ Bass Pro Shops

 I have posted a bunch of products for the geek who decorates with his or her geekery. This is a prefect pillow for a couch or your bed. It's depicts the ever so popular Finder Logo from the Mac OS.

Live Action Duck Hunt Game


Wednesday, August 19, 2009 4:15 PM

 

 

Duck Hunt was a fun game wouldn’t it be fun to play it in real life. I mean without the Blood and guts and real guns. I mean with an electric inferred Gun and a mechanical flying duck. Where was this thing when I was young? Oh well!



With a 10 second charge on the gun this odd looking duck will fly for up to 30 seconds in erratic patterns until you shoot it down. The single shot mini pump action shotgun makes a loading sound each time you load it. You have to shoot the duck three times to take it down. The first two just momentarily interrupt its flight, but the third will take it down. How cool is that? 

I would have been all about this toy when I was a kid!

iPhone Playing Cards
Thursday, August 13, 2009 3:40 PM



Meninos does again with these unique playing cards that look like an iphone. The cards image appears in the center of the screen where you would expect the callers photo to be. The cards number and type appear in the top left and bottom right, as you would expect. The back of the cards shows the back of the iphone with an almost shiny reflective finish. I most have for the iphone fanatic.

$25 at Meninos

iphone Gorillapod – An affordable iPhone mount and Tripod Solution
Monday, August 3, 2009 2:42 PM

 


People have been making their own iphone tripods and mounts for a while now. There are some that have come out that seem a bit extreme for a casual tripod mount for your iphone. Well the solution is that Grillapod mount.

Gorillapod makes tripods with bendable and moldable legs. I have owned one of these with the standard mounting screw and it worked great. The iphone version can be mounted in two ways. You can either use the suction cup bracket to mount it to the phone or use an adhesive mounting system. Both I’m sure would work great as an affordable iphone mount solution. You could probable get a second hard case for your iphone if you want to use the adhesive mounting system that way you would have to have the mount on your everyday case.

This is a great iphone tripod solution go check out the gorillapod at their website.

$30 @ Gorillapod
