Super cool iPhone cover

Having featured a few hum-drum, run of the mill accessories for the iPhone in an article last week (it’s not even out over here yet, so don’t blame me) I have recently come across this rather slick iPhone protective cover ($30).

Beverage of the week: Chopin vodka

I don’t do Vodka. Not normally anyway. I just don’t see the point in drinking something that feels like drinking pure alcohol without any sort of taste sensation. I may as well get straight onto the meths. Vodka and coke, vodka and orange, vodka and tonic, they just taste like alcoholic versions of the mixer. Utterly pointless. "You haven’t tried …

Fake iphone

It seems that unscrupulous counterfeiters – are there any other kind – are already exploiting the good natured greed of technophiles everywhere by producing fake iphones or, as this video shows, the "tphone".

Beverage of the week: Innis and Gunn

Since the advent of the "lad" all those years ago, beer has really only meant one thing to men – lager. So there’s always been Guinness on the radar but for a while that was the only alternative we’ve had in a market saturated with over-aerated pints-of-piss. Fortunately, over the past couple of years we’ve started to see an influx …
