Getting a Shorter Headphone Cable Will Change Your Life

If you wear headphones, your pocket is too full. It's already got your phone in it, and then, to keep it from flopping useless against your thigh all day, you've stuffed the remainder of your overlong headphone cable in there as well, maybe rolled up neatly or wrapped around the phone, but most likely just jammed in… » 6/28/13 11:18am 6/28/13 11:18am

OpenTable Is Secretly the Best Thing on the Internet

No one hates OpenTable. No one finds it small or inconsequential or twee, as so many modern startups or services can be. No one thinks it does a bad job, or that it treats its users as property or hostages. On an internet that takes no greater joy than in being the first (or millionth) person to say something sucks,… » 5/10/13 2:23pm 5/10/13 2:23pm

The Ronco Food Dehydrator Was My Gateway Gadget

I am a gadget writer. But I wasn't born this way. Every gadget-lover has a first love. That first gizmo that caused a snowball effect and whoa, here you are, surrounded by piles of future-fabulous gear. » 2/08/13 5:40pm 2/08/13 5:40pm

The Greatest T-Shirt in the World

When you think about wool, you probably conjure up images of warm sweaters, scratchy socks, or bald sheep. But certainly not a breezy, summerweight t-shirt, right? Change the way you think. This is the greatest t-shirt in the history of the world. » 6/20/12 3:40pm 6/20/12 3:40pm

Blanco Sandstone Coaster Lightning Review: The Cure for Condensation

Condensation in the summer heat is a vile byproduct of an icy beverage. Unpleasant to the hand. Devastating to wood surfaces. You must use a coaster, but the condensation is so strong its surface tension lifts most coasters right off the bar. Then again, the Blanco Sandstone Coaster is not like most coasters. » 6/13/12 3:20pm 6/13/12 3:20pm

Why You Should Be On A Cargo Bike

I used to care about weight. I'm one of those OCD types who meticulously weighed components out on my gram scale. I'm the jerk with the hollow pin chain and all Dura Ace on his carbon fiber LOOK 595. I stripped my mountain bike down to its frame, and replaced every. single. part. Every one. All in order to shave… » 4/25/12 2:20pm 4/25/12 2:20pm

Dailylister: The Cross-Country Craigslist

Social networking? Psha. Communication? I smell a bubble. The most important function of the Internet is online window shopping. When I need to unwind, I pull up a fresh browser window and start pretending I'm in the market for a Porsche. Giddyup. » 3/21/12 5:00pm 3/21/12 5:00pm

The Cheap, Unlimited Source Of the Fizzy Water You Can't Live Without

SodaStream is secretly the most popular kitchen gadget in the world. It almost doesn't make sense: All it does is turn tap water into sparkling water. So what gives? We polled our Twitter followers to find out. » 3/14/12 6:40pm 3/14/12 6:40pm

The Little Glass Bowls I Can't Cook Without

If you've ever worked in a professional kitchen, you've probably heard the term "mise en place" (meez•on•ploss). I don't speak French, but I'm told the phrase means "put in place." Makes sense, because that's the whole idea with these bowls. » 1/25/12 5:40pm 1/25/12 5:40pm

The Tiny Pocket Knife That I Will Carry Until I Lose

I am not a Navy Seal. I don't need a fixed-blade, full-tang pocket sword with a tanto point and a Rockwell factor of 58. I open a lot of boxes and trim my nails with this 50-plus year-old pen knife. It used to be my grandfather's. I'm named after him. He died before I was born. » 1/18/12 3:26pm 1/18/12 3:26pm
