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. Though originally built for events, …

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: put your stuff in storage. …

Oh Dang! From Instagram to Oil Paintings

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 here’s a company doing the …

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 floored when I saw the …

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 anyone can understand. When customers …

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 right in front of you. …

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 able to get a ton …

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.
