Guys: you know how it is. You want to look good without having to go to the store, without having to spend too much money and without asking for too much help (or some combination of the above).

100 Incredible Resources for Tech Entrepreneurs and Startups

Dude. Startups are hard. But they are also fun. And life-changing and depressing and full of risk and reward. For those of us who call ourselves entrepreneurs, we can’t help ourselves. We’re chasing that crazy weekly growth rate. We’re all about that hustle. People think we’re crazy. Sometimes we are. But we’re always looking for […]

The 3 best new Chrome extensions

Chrome is my favorite browser and judging from our analytics, it’s the preferred browser of the majority of our readers as well. That being the case it only makes sense to get some awesome new extensions in front of you. I should say, however, that my favorite new Chrome extension (possibly of all time) is […]

Stop Missing Life’s Most Important Photos

The best photos aren’t always the prettiest, but it’s the prettiest that get shared on Facebook and Instagram. There are many ways to share photos with friends and family but none stand out in my mind in terms of uniqueness and usefulness as Cluster. Cluster allows people to build private, collaborative photo albums with friends. […]

Self-Storage Used to Suck

We all have junk memories that we’ve got to store somewhere. If you have run out of room in your basement, closets, garage and shed (assuming you have one) and you have already exhausted the storage areas of any friends and family willing to give your stuff asylum, you really only have one option left: […]

Oh Dang! From Instagram to Oil Paintings

“That’s insane!” was the first thought to run through my head when I first saw what the creative talent at PIXELI.ST was capable of. I’m really excited to get to introduce you to this company if you haven’t run into them yet. Most companies are doing their best to turn the physical world digital but […]

Marquee—A Tool For Easily Publishing Gorgeous Content

You could say I do a lot of writing/blogging. Some of the articles I create take over 14 hours to produce. That’s a lot of time staring at a screen and working within an interface (WordPress for me, currently). So with that information as a point of reference, let me tell you that I was […]

MOS Is a Sleek, Useful Cable Management System for Apple Devices

Technically the MOS is a magnetic cable organization system designed to compliment MacBooks, but it looks more like a dazzling sculpture. It’s one of those, “Why didn’t I think of that?” products that was successfully funded on Kickstarter. Greg Petersen, the co-creator of MOS, puts it like this: “It is such a simple idea that […]

Are you ready for an interesting alternative to the postal code system? Personally, I love it when someone rethinks an idea that has been around for decades upon decades. what3words has mapped every 3m x 3m square in the world with 3 words from the dictionary, providing each square with a unique, memorable 3 word […]

At The Pool: An Easy Way to Get Social Offline

When you hear social media, ironically, I bet you only think about online services like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Many a person has complained that “social media” has actually disconnected the world, more than connected it. Sure, you can “hangout” with someone on Google+, but that’s not the same as seeing someone live and in person […]

Prefundia: Before You Launch On Kickstarter…

Not all that long ago, I crowdfunded something. Climbur, to be exact. It didn’t go so well. I raised a few hundred dollars from friends and family, but not nearly the amount I was hoping to raise from the community at large. Even as the Editor of DailyTekk, a decent-sized tech blog, I was not […]

Sessions: Online Health Coaching that Works

Health (and everything it encompasses like exercising and eating right) is so important, but far to few people (myself included) really nail down an awesome (much less effective) health routine. My wife and I have often complained how much easier it must be for celebrities with their personal trainers. To put it delicately, if you’ve […]

Startup Stories: Onesheet

I’ve spent some time in the music industry and there aren’t a lot of really useful tools out there for musicians. There are some, as we’ve catalogued, but one of the best is definitely Onesheet. So, I recently interviewed Brenden Mulligan, the design-focused, product-oriented entrepreneur behind the service. Aside from this project, he’s also created TipList, Webbygram, MorningPics, and PhotoPile and […]

Picture Interview: Dave Fowler, Founder of Chartio

In case you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty intrigued by data (from data visualization tools to Big Data), so naturally I was interested in learning more about Chartio, “The easiest business dashboard you’ll ever use.” You pop your data in and Chartio makes it look nice and readable. It’s definitely worth a look if you are […]

This is a picture of our second beta box. For our first shipment we used glue to secure the samples. That went horribly! We iterated and changed the packaging to include tissue paper and wrapped packages. It worked much better and contributed to the feeling of Birchbox being a "gift" you can buy for yourself.
