We all love our ScotteVest clothing here at Gear Diary. One of the coolest features of SeV wear is the ability to take a set of ear buds and wire them through the garment so they’re always there when you need them. The only issue is the fact that you then have to dedicate a set of headphones to thisRead more
Last year I all but lived in my SCOTTEVEST Evolution Jacket during CES 2010. The Evolution was perfect. As a jacket it was great for the early morning chill in Vegas and since it was from SCOTTEVEST it held a ton of gear. As the day heated up the zip-off sleeves converted the Evolution into a vest that still carriedRead more
It has been getting cold here in the northeast. This morning was quite chilly and it’s only going to get worse. That means jackets, hats and – of course – gloves. And that is a problem if you’re one of the growing number of people who use the touchscreen device. You see, capacitive touch screens need some sort of resistance
Last night I went to pay for something. I pulled out my wallet and the woman behind the counter looked at it and said, “Now that’s a nifty gadget!” “Thanks,” I said, “I like everything about it but the color; I wish it were black.”
“NOOO! she said, that’s my favorite color. I love it!”
As I walked away I
We’ve covered a lot of customized phones over the years. From gold-plated to diamond encrusted, to just brands like Vertu and more. But this customized 32 GB iPhone 4 from Stuart Hughes tops them all, and then some.
Ringing in at a cool 8 million (you read right) dollars it features a bezel which is handmade from rose gold with
Fans of high-end cell phones know that Vertu has been making luxury handsets for a number of years. The company just announced its next offering, the Constellation Quest and it features a QWERTY keyboard, making it the first Vertu device to offer one. I think we have a new contender for the race to become Judie’s next phone – she’sRead more
The media, both traditional press and bloggers, clearly have their share of journalistic work to do; many writers and reporters do this job admirably. Sometimes, in fact far too often for my taste, the facts get twisted and turned in such a way as to make a story more compelling or salacious than it would otherwise be; to compound matters,Read more
For almost a decade I’ve been using a wallet that I purchased from Levenger. The Pocket Briefcase is a large leather folio that allows me to keep credit cards, a license and some cash on one side and a number of the company’s “pocket cards” in the other. It’s a great wallet, and it has served me quite well. Increasingly,Read more
Ever wonder if those fees airlines are now charging for carry-on items actually bring in serious revenue? Well, thanks to Scott Jordan and SCOTTEVEST we now know the answer — they bring in TONS of cash.
Turns out that while SCOTTEVEST clothing appears in the SkyMall Magazine in the pouch in front of each seat on each Delta flight, a

Tokyoflash wants to take you on a journey with their latest Kisai series creation the “Round Trip”. The new watch is constructed of a full stainless steel body and band, with a smoked black glass lens covering the colorful LED display. The ultra vivid blue, green, and orange LED’s turn this classy looking wristwatch into a
You know how you can see the most gorgeous ball gown on a hanger, and while you’re able to appreciate the materials used and the workmanship that went into the garment, there’s just no way to know how fabulous it could look until you finally put it on? That’s kind of how I felt when I opened a package containing

Once again Tokyoflash puts out another watch masterpiece for the classy Geek in you. This time they have announced the Kisai Traffic watch that sports the super bright LED tubes that we know and love from their previously released line of watches. The Traffic design is to simulate the busy the city streets with intersections,
If you’re like me, you probably don’t give much thought to your wallet. It holds stuff, then slowly parts of it disintegrate, or it gets worn and uncomfortable to carry, so it’s time for a new one. Mine all look essentially the same; I tend to favor plain leather wallets with plenty of pockets to hold credit cards, business cards,Read more
A few years ago I lost a good bit of weight thanks to the South Beach Diet. From a health perspective it was good. From a wardrobe perspective however… well that was a different story. Suddenly none of my suits fit. It was the same story with my dress shirts, and replacing them was going to be an expensive proposition.Read more
I carry my iPad with me pretty much everywhere I go these days. That means I need a good case… and a good bag. Tom Bihn was kind enough to send me one of their Ristretto bags. The Ristretto was originally designed for carrying netbooks but it works perfectly as an iPad bag. As soon as you look atRead more

Function, style and glorious LCD’s pretty much can describe any watch in the Tokyoflash lineup, the latest model “Changing Lanes” is no exception.
The new watch sports an all stainless steel band and bezel, rechargeable battery and of course follows suit with an animated LED light show every 15 minutes between 6:00 pm and midnight. The
OK, these are too cool. They look like nice, rather simple cufflinks, but they are much more than that thanks to a hidden surprise. That surprise? Each cufflink offers 2GB of storage. Pop off the top of either, plug it into a USB port and… Bam… Access whatever you have stored on them as you would with any USB flash

A new first today for Tokyoflash, their first ever pocket watch is now shipping direct from the website. The new band less watch sports a highly polished stainless steel face, a smoked lens and super bright tube LED’s for illumination. The watch is powered by a USB rechargeable battery that lasts up to a month with

The good folks at TokyoFlash just announced the latest creation called the Kisai Broke. The slogan for this new watch is “breaking tradition” and is also their first watch in the line to feature a USB rechargeable battery. The Break watch face gives the effect of broken glass or what I would almost refer too as
One of the unexpected benefits of starting to use the iPad in place of my MacBook is that it has made me feel far lighter than ever before. No, I don’t mean “lighter” in a
“techno-geeky I’m so happy to be using this magical device…” way. No, I mean lighter as in “using the iPad means I carry a lot
Vertu Constellation Ayxta
If you noticed last week, we did an unboxing on the Vertu Constellation Ayxta. A gorgeous new flip phone that costs oodles and oodles.. Well this week its broken!
I put one of my 3 SIMs in it to start using it and absorbing it into my daily repertoire. And then it started happening!
I had synched
Vertu, the high-end Nokia luxury handset company, released a flip version of their phone towards the end of 2009 and I finally got my hands on one! So this is the unboxing view, and I’ll come back in a few weeks and do a proper review of the phone whilst in use.
I purchased the unit from one of the
