We got a tip for yet another cool Kickstarter project, the Recon 6 Survival Watch by Ralston. Not only does the rugged watch tell time, but it also contains a compass, signal mirror, can opener, fire starter, whistle, cutting tool, fishing line, and flash light. Essentially, it has all the basic survival items stashed around your wrist. It’s also a cool looking watch for when you’re not braving the elements.
Ahhh, it’s summertime! What better way to enjoy the sunshine than with a nice cold adult beverage? Problem is, not everywhere you go to enjoy the sun will have a fridge nearby, so here are some awesome coolers to keep your drinks frosty this summer:
Partnered with AT&T, Amazon will be in a player in the smartphone market come July 25th with the Amazon Fire Phone. The 4.7″ HD display is powered by a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and the phone has a 13 MP camera. One of the key distinct features is Dynamic Perspective, a custom-designed sensor system that responds to how you hold, view, and move your phone. Firefly, which is basically like Shazam for everything, allows you to press a button that’ll identify and take action (i.e. purchase) on music, movies, tv shows, phone numbers, web addresses, household items, books, and more. The phone also comes with a free membership to Amazon Prime and lets you stream content seamlessly from your phone to your big screen if you also have Amazon Fire TV.
We would expect a guy like Pitbull to know his Vodka, and based on trying a bottle of his original Voli – our expectations were met. Produced in France, this 5-times distilled Vodka made with superior French Wheat is both smooth and light.

Driver Andy Green is planning to break the world land speed record in 2016 with the Bloodhound SCC and hit a terrifying 1,000 mph. While this will be the world’s fastest car, it’s really a missile on wheels when you consider how it’s powered. Together, the EJ200 jet engine and Nammo hybrid rockets produce around 210 kN (21 tonnes) of thrust, equivalent to 135,000 thrust hp, or 180 F1 cars! Rolex designed two custom instruments, a speedometer and chonograph to withstand the extreme g-forces and vibrations the car will experience while accelerating, decelerating and going 1,000 friggin’ miles per hour! The vehicle has hi-tech electronic controls and gauges, but akin to the analog Rolex instruments it also has manual backups for everything to ensure the car can be stopped safely from high speeds. Better safe than sorry when you’re cruising at Mach 1.4.

It may have been 20 years since their adventure to Aspen, but Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are back and dumber than ever in Dumb and Dumber To .
