“Private sector human expeditions to the Moon are now feasible and profitable without government funding,” says Golden Spike, a company offering private lunar expeditions for a tiny $1.5 billion sum.

The Ballfinder Scout is a handheld device that locates difficult to find golf balls utilizing a proprietary digital imaging system. The BallFinder Scout works with any standard white golf ball as far a 35 feet away when as little as 3 dimples are visible. It would not take me many rounds to pay this thing off…

You watch now.
Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet operates under the new 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. It sports a soft shell backing for comfortable grip, dimensions notably smaller than the iPad and WiFi connectivity. Just as the iPad and Kindle funnel the user’s attention and money into their parent company’s proprietary content this device is decidedly connected to the Google Play store. Yes there is a camera, speakers, mini-USB connection, and a large selection of apps. Challenge the iPad? Meh. Kindle killer? Possibly.

The 2012 model of Panasonic’s 900 series doesn’t offer much over previous models but that’s nothing to be ashamed of since 2010 and 2011 models consistently rate at the top of the game in image quality and features elevating the Panasonic HDC-HS900K from typical consumer use up into “Prosumer” territory. Record in movie-like 24p or ratchet up to a jaw-dropping 60p in high definition. Unlike its predecessor, it appears Panasonic has fixed the annoying fan noise that bled over into the internal mic in low ambient sound environments for this year’s release. Recent price drops have brought this drool-inducing video recorder even closer to obtainability. Nice! Did I mention with a special 3-D lense you can record in 3-D?
The Extech i5 Handheld IR Camera has one use and we all know it. “Includes QuickReport PC Software, 512MB miniSD Card, Li-Ion rechargeable battery with 100-260V AC adaptor/charger with…” blah, blah, blah, WHO CARES! Now, lets go hunt some ghosts. Sheesh.

For the man who eats, drinks and dreams fly-fishing these beautiful works of art are worth every penny.
Yeah, lots of places will slap a logo or custom print on just about anything, including beer glasses. But I’ve never found anyone who can engrave an endless menagerie of authentic German glassware. UNTIL NOW. Correct, you can get custom engravings by the glass or complex custom designs printed in large quantities. You can even have the legendary “boot” beer glass marked as your very own. For anyone who hasn’t seen the epic mini-series/movie Das Boot, it is a remarkable German WWII submarine film and I suggest you take a swig from your own boot every time you hear the word “Nein!” – which is almost exactly the cost of your custom engraving. Woah.
Geigerrig is a relatively new manufacturer but it doesn’t mean they aren’t a fierce contender.

My gaming days are long gone but this blast from the past is likely to occupy some of my time. It makes my personal wish list.

Diablo III has gamers drooling and for your guy-geek this gift is sure to please.
It’s new and improved and there’s even a free iPhone or iPad app so you can use those devices as a controller – sweet, now I can surf YouTube fail videos on my phone and TV at the same time. 1080P HD quality movies and TV shows from iTunes as well as content from Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, all your iCloud content, Airplay content and Wi-Fi connectivity. This is a no brainer.
Ironclad is a trusted brand in work apparel. They makes several lines of super-tough gloves for hunting, mechanics, law enforcement, carpentry and general utility. Of particular interest may be their Gripworx gloves (pictured above) which feature their patented “Diamondclad” Silicone Fused grip area with a reinforced palm ridge, a terrycloth sweat-wipe on the back of the thumb and breathable liner. These things look so sweet they make me want to go out to the garage and start lifting things right now.
