Generate a random password on your Android phone using PicshaPass

Here’s a fun little fact for you, computers can’t actually generate a completely random number on their own. This is simply the nature of computers, which by design, are meant to be predictable in their actions. Now you may say that you’ve seen random number or password generators out there, but even these are not truly random. They rely on a set of programming that only appears random. Were you to compare its output to something that is completely random,…

Modify your laptop bag to rest on your back, rather than your side

I have a love/hate relationship with laptop bags. I enjoy the look of my over-the-shoulder messenger bag, but it’s not the most comfortable thing in the world if I have to carry it around for long periods. Alternatively, I have a nice backpack that is much more comfortable, but is bulky and doesn’t quite give off that professional look that I want. Well if you want the best of both worlds, you can actually convert your messenger-style bag into one…

SlickRun – magic word freeware makes Windows tasks super fast

SlickRun doesn’t have the most beautiful interface in the world, but this small freeeware program is extremely useful nonetheless. Think of it as a Launchy rival, a pop up command tool which accepts normal words to execute whatever Windows function you want. There are a couple of standout points. First is the Jot function (WinKey-J) which is a universal text clipboard. Just copy/paste into this pop up box to save text instantly for future use. Great for filling out forms…

Tokyoflash Kisai RPM Acetate Watch

I love LED lights, but most times they are so bright I can hardly stand to look at them. There have been a lot of watches coming out lately with LED lights, but they illuminate so well it can almost be hard to read sometimes. Not to mention they often look a little silly. That’s why I was glad to see the Tokyoflash Kisai RPM Acetate Watch that takes care of all of my concerns. This watch is built out…

Turn a desk lamp into a swinging mic stand

If you do a lot of audio recording, you obviously need a good mic. Along with having the right audio input device, you need to be able to position it correctly. The easiest way to do this is with a nice swing arm stand. These allow you to place the mic exactly where you want it to be, with very little effort. The trouble is that such stands usually cost a pretty penny. However, lamps that use a similar system…

iPhone Dock Fan

All of the heat that comes with summer finally here. We don’t usually carry a box fan around with us, but we do seem to always have our phones on hand. If we could somehow get our phones to store drinks and air conditioning, then life would be just awesome. Although we can’t have everything, we can get the iPhone Dock Fan and be a little bit better off than those around us. This is designed very similarly to the…

Entrustet gives your family members access to your online accounts if you pass away

Death is one of those pesky things that we don’t really want to think about. After all, we’re all going to live forever, right? Well, in the event of our demise, there are a number of things that must be attended to.

Planetary Parasol is the largest watch you’ll carry

It’s always really amazing how hunters or trackers in movies could tell the time by the position of the sun. I always wished I could magically learn how to do it, but never had any proper guidance. Living in the city makes it a little difficult to find someone who is knowledgeable in direction and the position of the sun. The Planetary Parasol is a compass, clock, and umbrella combo that will teach you how to read time by the…

Star Wars Lightsaber Bottle Opener

Summer has begun. It is hotter than the desert outside and you would like a cold root beer, but have not the arm strength to pry the cap off. Having a bottle opener on hand would be nice, but they look so boring if they are just metal and resemble a pop tab. Why not add some flare to your bottle-opening with the Star Wars Lightsaber Bottle Opener? This 5.5 long Lightsaber that can act as a key chain will…
