A few months ago I wrote about the JavoEdge Axis case for iPad. Because I'd been looking for cases that combine decent protection with the ability to prop your iPad up at various angles--and that includes placing the iPad in a portrait or landscape position--I thought it was one of the best iPad cases out there. But I also said it wasn't perfect and had a few small issues. Well, the company took that feedback--and the feedback from customers--and redesigned the case, calling the new version the Editor Axis case.
I like watches. I'm wearing a particularly attractive watch right now. It's great because it tells time, and it looks good doing it. Then my editor sent me this Off-Axis Watch designed by Eric Janssen for Areaware and now I want to throw my computer out the window.

Long before before $4 a gallon became the national average, many newer cars already included dashboard instruments that gauged fuel consumption. But it's the older gas guzzlers that arguably needed them more, to show how much money was being wasted models manufactured in the pre-hybrid era.
That's why the K.A.T. Matrix 3-Axis accelerometer may come in handy as a reminder of how much careless driving costs at the pump, depending on one's performance in horesepower, G-forces, quarter-mile speeds, and 0-60 clock time. Or, as Dvice says, it can be a badge of honor for those … Read more
