I don't know about you guys, but it took me years to get a sense of what kinds of beers I liked and disliked...and why. Now, with some experience, I have a fairly good idea, but I was pretty impressed with this new app, Next Glass, which keeps track of which beers you enjoy and recommends others based on similar tastes.

If you've ever been mugged (or accidentally lost your wallet in a river like I've actually done, TWICE), you know the insane pain it can be to replace everything. While there's a good case to be made for why you should immediately photocopy the contents of your wallet, there are lots of other great ways to reduce the fat wad in your pocket and streamline your life with redundancies to spare.
Many of us would love to live in the future. And with the exception of the fact that we're still waiting for Jarvis to arrive and put Siri to shame, there's so much incredible technology out there that it isn't hard to feel like we already do.
Reddit user curtisabrina pulled out all the stops when he wanted to give his girlfriend a ring. He built the entire thing from milling the wood to machining the metal parts. This is one of the most fascinating things I've ever seen. Someone should tell Tiffany and Co. about this fella.
Alright we gotta talk about hoverboards for a second. They're awesome, we'd all use one if they functioned like Marty McFly's, and for the most part they've been a dream of the future. In fact, every couple years there's some tiny innovation that doesn't amount to much or there's a viral hoax to let us down like Tony Hawk's HUVr prank earlier this year. No more.
Football is back in season. For some of us, it's the all-consuming, stark-raving crazy best time of the year. For others, it's time to make some random fantasy league picks and hope we don't get embarrassed too badly.

I'm a total sucker for stuff like this. We've all seen that old television from the post-atomic, retro-future design era with an awesome case, but less than stellar image quality by today's HD standards.
They say the best camera is always the one you have on you...meaning that it's better to be able to take a picture in the first place to capture the moment, rather than worrying about which gear you should use.
For most of these days, that camera has become our smartphone, with lenses and megapixels and editing options that have dwarfed the digital point-and-shoots from only a few years ago.
Sometimes, a project is born from a flash of inspiration. Sometimes, from a desire to work with a specific material or amazing length of wood or side of leather. But most times, a project is born from the fact that you don't have one, and you'd like to.
Chivalry isn't dead in 2014. It's just, you know, different. In the era of smart phones at dinner and social networking breakups and Google glass and streaming media and cigarettes that aren't really cigarettes but still kinda are, the be-a-good-guy rules still apply, they just need to be updated a bit.
