Arko Shaving Soap and West Coast Shaving Twist-Up Shaving Stick Container Review

Thermos Saves the Day – TWICE.

How to get Google Maps Turn by Turn Street Name Voice Navigation Back

Google Maps and Google Navigation are some of the best apps on the Android platform. The unattractive, computerized female voice of the Navigation app has guided me to many locations, whether I’m in my car or in my motorcycle.

Zak, the author of the very entertaining and insightful Playing D&D With Porn Stars blog, created an event called International Anklebiter Illustrator Day.

Comp-Tac Single Magazine Pouch Carrier Review

Comp-Tac Single Magazine Pouch Carrier Review

In September of 2010 I wrote about a few different magazine carriers that I own, and how different form factors can be more or less useful for those of us who carry a firearm concealed.

Users were creating 3000 drawings per second, there were over 36 million players, and the makers of the game, OMGPOP, was just purchased by online […]
