Just because everyone looks at UPS or FedEx as the big boys of shipping, doesn’t mean that DHL has to take it lying down. To that end, DHL decided to “prank” fellow shippers UPS and TNT by printing “DHL is Faster” on temperature-sensitive paper and glued them to large boxes and had UPS and TNT deliver them to hard-to-reach addresses.
There was controversy back in 2012 about the official sponsors of the Olympic games forcing athletes to not display logos of their sponsor brands. The Sochi Olympic games came with their own controversies, but the branding rules stand. For the athletes anyway, as the Russian President wore a fleece with several brands displayed, including Russian mobile network provider Yota.

Did you party a bit too hard last night during the Super Bowl? If this morning is not treating you kindly, and if you live in the NYC area, then you might want to give the I.V. Doctor a call. “Party without worrying about a hangover” and “discover why so many celebrities and socialites turn to the I.V. Doctor.”…
Ah Valentines Day. That heartwarming day filled with love, chocolate, over-priced cards and, of course, terrible gifts that far too often backfire on the giver. Sure, you can get the love of your life a Lexus tied in a red bow, but what will you do the following year? Here are a few gifts we really don’t recommend…
There are several personality traits that can supposedly be revealed based on the results you glean from this simple 5 second test. Kev and I did it over breakfast, and the results were a bit surprising … or maybe they weren’t. Watch the video, take the test, and then share your results below!
Who needs cat videos when you can stick these feline stickers anywhere you want? Forget nine lives, since you get 11 different stickers per pack. I like the one with the butterflies. Purrrfect for your cat lover. But ouch — at $151 plus $17 for shipping for the set, it’s you who is being declawed. Order now. Or not.
I love roller coasters, but have never been as enthused about waterslides. There’s something comforting (false or not) about being securely strapped in, as opposed to a thin bathing suit being my only protection against plummeting straight down. Needless to say, I won’tt be riding the Verrückt at Schlitterbahn Kansas City … will you? Watch the video and share below!
Sometimes a product comes along that is so bizarre-looking that you just have to take notice. Heaven Golf Shoes are just such a product, and they promise to be a revolutionary development in the game of golf. If nothing else, they’re sure to distract spectators from your duck hook into the wrong fairway.
A post on Reddit titled “What’s the Most WTF Thing You Can Find On Street View” caught my eye. I was not quite sure what to expect though the top post caught my eye. It’s a pre and post street view of Kissam Ave in Staten Island, New York which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
I may share a name with Sasha Baron Cohen, but I don’t share his willingness to do just about anything for a laugh. Case in point — the Mankini. Yes, he really wore this. And yes, you can get your own. Better still, it is currently on sale over on Gadgets and Gear.
The Governor of New Jersey is in a bit of hot water and currently trying to do damage control. I won’t comment on him or his staff’s behavior but one thing became clear as he spoke. We warn young people that anything they post on social media “is forever” and, as the Governor and his staff have just learned, email…
Everyone at CES is talking wearable technology, from Google Glass to Pebble to fitness trackers and more. But what about the most basic wearable – the wrist watch? Gadgets & Gear is back with a cool ‘melting watch’ inspired by the classic Salvador Dalí’s painting ‘The Persistence of Memory’. With this on your wrist you will definitely make a statement!…
When you do things live, stuff happens. That is just how it goes – technical problems, mixups and misunderstandings, and so on. They happen. As they say, it isn’t the problem but how you deal with it that says more about you. Well, at the Samsung Press Conference there was a teleprompter problem … and Michael Bay just walked off…
When I was a kid, the concept of ‘wind chill’ was new; the National Weather Service didn’t start reporting it until the 1970s, and it took a while longer to become popular with news viewers. Now it has evolved into ‘Real Feel’ or ‘Feels Like’ rather than just ‘Wind Chill’. Either way, Apple’s Weather app doesn’t have a clue.
While waiting for a Lenovo video to load, this hilarious Poo-Pourri ad popped up. Usually I click SKIP as soon as the option is available, but not this time. Maybe it’s the 5th grader still trapped inside of me, but this video made me laugh; even funnier is that it’s a product I know works as advertised. Don’t ask; just…
I wrote up my visit to the Henry Ford Museum after being there with Ford last January. Among the amazing things I saw during my visit was the actual car President Kennedy was riding in when he was shot 50 years ago this week. More amazing? It was put back into service, and other Presidents rode in it.
When I heard about the Dragon Innovation project called ‘The Fiesta Five’, I had an immediate thought: one of my sons loves fist-bumps and high fives, the other does not. When he finally does give his brother a high-five, there is a celebration … and I could just picture him using one of these to make it truly special.
Long ago, I worked in retail. I worked at a large family owned chain here in Ohio called Meijer. Unlike other stores, they are open 364 days a year for 24 hours a day closing only on Christmas. Some retail has always been open on Thanksgiving. The rest of world is changing, and it’s ok.
If you don’t know what a “Juicy Lucy” is, then prepare to have your mind blown. The Juicy Lucy is a stuffed hamburger filled with add-ins like cheese, bacon, mushrooms or onions. Until now, they’ve been difficult to make at home, but thanks to the Stuff-a-Burger Press, you can make your own version on the grill!
