GoPro just announced a pretty compelling offer for users of their cameras, unlimited video storage with GoPro Plus ($4.99 per month). The previous GoPro Plus plan allowed  subscribers to upload unlimited photos and up to 35 hours of video (about 250Gb). The worst part of the old plan was that the videos were transcoded and stored at a lower bit rate. Not anymore. The...

Nostalgic buyers have been creating a market for for vinyl record players. Think of these throwback turntables as conversation pieces for the living room. The main downfall of most of these turntables is the fact that your accompanying amplifier doesn’t typically have a dedicated phono input. McIntosh has a fix with their MT1100 Turntable ($6,500) which has a phone pre-amp and hi-fi amplifier built-in. They even added Bluetooth and...

CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle Under 2k

What costs half as much as a Honda Monkey, is bigger, more capable, and you can get delivered to your house in about a week? The CSC SG250 San Gabriel ($1,995).

While I try to avoid buying things made in China (not easy, and I certainly can’t do it for everything) this bike has some pretty fair reviews online. Sure, it has rear drum brakes, tiny front disc brakes, and front shocks that look like they came off of a bicycle. But that isn’t the point with this bike, at least not in my opinion. If you want a fun little commuter bike (assuming you aren’t on the freeway much, or at all), the CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle checks a bunch of boxes. All for less than $2k! (more…)

Got $110K kicking around and have nostalgia for the 1960’s Lincoln Continentals with suicide doors, but want something a bit more modern? This limited edition Lincoln Continental is being built to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Continental. This 2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition will be limited to just 80-units worldwide and has a price tag of $110k. Unfortunately they sold out in just 48 hours, so you you will have to find someone selling their personal car. The interior is from Lincoln’s Black Label trim...

The Cave is the first inflatable tent that Heimplanet made. It can be erected in less than a minute, with included pump, and is very stable and weatherproof. It certainly isn’t the cheapest tent, but it is arguably one of the coolest. Get your Heimplanet...

Tesla just released a new “portable” wall charger. It looks similar to the hard wired version but comes with a NEMA 14-50 plug. This new charger can charge 25% faster than the Gen 2 Mobile Connector which comes with the car (this assumes you have 50-amps at the wall). It will work with the Model S, Model X, and Model 3 vehicles. I like the idea of this little charge because it bridges the gap between home and portable use as most folks have a NEMA 14-50 port for their electric clothes dryer. This would also allow Tesla owners...

Remember the Skully AR-1 Smart Helmet that was taking preorders, just like this one? Skully was going to be the first smart helmet but ended in scandal. To be clear, I am not comparing the two companies other than the fact that they are both trying to develop smart helmets...

If you have ever needed a soldering iron while out in the field, away from wall power, you typically had to suffer with a subpar iron. For example, I used to carry the Weller P2KC which is a butane powered soldering iron. It is decent and has served me well. But I have found something better. The

Forget about the price, the minimal reviews, and the low star rating. Gamble a bit. Get yourself a one wheeled electric scooter. This bad boy will go 20 miles per hour, has an LED headlight, LED display, horn, and a removable battery. Get your SuperRide Self Balancing Electric One Wheel Scooter here.

Yep, that beauty pictured above started off as a gas powered 1967 Mustang. Now, it is more modern than most cars on the road. This car came to life from a Russian EV startup, Aviar Motors, and they are taking a 100kWh Tesla battery and running gear and placing it in an aluminum and carbon fiber frame/chassis based on the 67 Mustang fastback. This means that you will get 315 miles of range, 840 hp, 155 mph top speed, and a 0 to 60 mph  time of just  2.2 seconds. They even used the Tesla screen and door handles. Pretty impressive work...
