Pivot Power Strip by Quirky Makes Charging Easier

Pivot Power Strip by Quirky Makes Charging Easier

We have all been there, 30 outlets, but only able to use 6. Nothing is more frustrating than buying a monster power strip with 30 or more outlets only to find most of them are un-useable.

Pivot Power is a flexible power strip that can help reduce some of that frustration.

Azimuth SP-1 Landship watch looks like a tank

I just posted up story about a strange wall clock, and then I ran across a cool wristwatch that looks like an old tank. The watch is called the Azimuth SP-1 Landship. I really like the design and it looks like an old tank from bygone eras and was, in fact, modeled after early 20th century landships, which were apparently, what tanks were called back then. The watch is really cool, and it is easy to tell time on so no Tokyoflash instructions are needed to tell someone what time it is.
