Nite Ize Made a Toothless Zipper for its Vacuum-Sealed Travel Bags

You can make a bag as water-resistant as you like, but liquids can still get through a conventional metal or plastic zipper. That’s the problem outdoor supplier Nite Ize set to solve with its new RunOff bags. Nite Ize had to engineer a completely new approach to zippers, tossing out a century or two of convention to make a seal with sides that grip each other at every millimeter. When the “TRU Zip” head docks into the depression at the far end, the soft bag is absolutely airtight: putting a sol...

The Sunflower Labs Bee is a Flying Robot Guard Dog

2019 is the year in which Blade Runner takes place. We don’t have hyper-realistic Replicants that try to kill hard-boiled detectives yet. But admit it: when you read the words “flying robot guard dog,” it feels like the future. Drone company Sunflower Labs was showing off just such a gadget at the massive CES trade show. The Bee is a drone that will deploy from your backyard and investigate anyone who gets too close to your literal safe space. The system relies on “sunflowers,” staves that go i...

DIY: Travel Inspired Art with Photoshop Elements

I’m just putting the finishing touches on my new office, and I wanted some original art on the walls. As you know I looooove to travel and I always take a lot of pictures when I’m someplace new! Last year I visited Oahu for a week and also had weekend getaway in Maya Riviera, Mexico. I love exotic botanicals so much so I took several pictures on my trips. To remind myself of these beautiful places, I turned them into original artwork for my office using Photoshop Elements.

HP and NVIDIA Made the $5000, 65-inch Monitor Your $5000 Desktop Deserves

The cheekily-named “BFGD” program—for “Big Format Gaming Display,” and nothing else—was announced at CES 2018, a full year ago. We expected these overpowered, gamer-friendly screens to hit shelves before the end of that year. The wait was worth it. Technically, the HP Omen X Emperium 65 is only a “display,” not a TV—a distinction required in the US because it lacks a tuner for over-the-air TV programming. But what it lacks in rabbit ears it makes up in every other category. Looking at it purely...

NRA Needs A Proven Leader, Now More Than Ever

Opinion by Marion Hammer Wayne LaPierre is one of the most humble guys I know. He routinely turns down profile pieces, and he always tells people that it’s the members who are the bedrock of the NRA.

I work as a gun rights lobbyist on gun rights for the NRA and for it’s Florida affiliate – Unified Sportsmen of Florida. I tell you ...

Armstrong Flooring Narrows Product Focus While Others Broaden

As reported recently in Floor Covering News, Armstrong Flooring has reached an agreement with an affiliate of American Industrial Partners (“AIP”) to sell its wood-flooring division for $100 million, a lucrative deal that’s “valued at approximately 7.2 times the Wood Flooring segment’s trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA.” The sale appears to be central to a larger strategy of focusing on resilient vinyl flooring—an approach that conforms to Design Analytics data, which shows that the fastest ...

Razer Raises Eyebrows With the Raptor Monitor, Coming for Less Than You Think

Gaming brand Razer has a reputation for over-the-top lighting and equally outlandish prices. So it was a pleasant surprise to hear a representative at CES say that the company’s upcoming gaming monitor, a first for Razer, will be priced at around $700. I was expecting the 27-inch panel, tuned for gaming and colored like a stealth jet with rainbow ground effects, to cost over $1000. But assuming that Razer holds on to its projected price when the “Raptor” launches sometime later this year, it wi...

An Open Letter to Kim Kardashian

Dear Kim, I need your help. I am impressed that a reality television star, like you, with star status as big as the President’s (I mean HUGE), can walk into the White House and bend the President’s ear. Thomas Rainer cannot. And that’s a shame.  Rainer, a landscape architect, author and teacher, lives and breathes reality. He loves gardens, nature and clean air, but he doesn’t have a television show or a cosmetics line.

Bulk Convert Mobi to Mobi

Hi, I need to convert a large number of mobi files to mobi files (yes, mobi to mobi). It's because the author data on the existing mobi files is picking up "firstname lastname" and I need to reconvert (then it picks up authorsort as lastname, firstname). BUT I can't define the input format in calibre for a bulk conversion - it picks up epubs to convert unless I convert each book individually. Any suggestions?

Boox Nova Pro?

Has anyone heard of the Nova Pro? I asked https://twitter.com/onyxboox about the Nova's availability in the UK. They said... "The Nova will not be available in the UK but the Nova Pro will in early 2019 on EU Amazon." I thought they meant the Nova Plus - and I expressed my disappointment, because I really want a front light. They said... "The Nova Pro has a front light and better than the Nova. If you can wait, wait for it." So... errr....? I can't find any information about the Pro onli...

How to Share Links to Your Google Doc as a PDF

Dell’s XPS 13 Should Hold the Lead for Windows Ultraportables With 2019 Update

The Dell XPS 13 is generally (though not universally) regarded as one of the top Windows machines available, thanks to a sleek design and a great value. Dell’s gentle revision of the laptop continues into 2019, notably including the most requested change. Dell lowered the curtain on the latest refresh at CES, drawing crowds with a headline feature: the camera is now exactly where you expect it to be. Previous iterations sought the thinnest screen bezels possible, and achieved this by sticking t...
