The Bookbook hides your laptop on your bookshelf

The BookBook is a hardcover leather case for MacBooks and MacBook Pros, though I’d bet that it fits other laptops/netbooks as well, assuming they’re of the 13 or 15-inch variety.



TwelveSouth bookbook



It’s available in two colors, either classic black or vibrant red. Both colors are finished in a hardback leather case. What I really like is that the laptop will almost disappear in a bunch of books.…

Lord K's Garage - #23. THE LAST PARADE

The 1942 models. For obvious reasons, most of these cars left the assembly line in 1941. Before or right after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Here are some rare birds, born at the edge of war.

For instance, the 1942 DeSoto with retractable headlights. Don't you think that this dieselpunk icon never saw the serial production - here it is, alive & kicking:…

More Women of WWII

I found another site with some amazing photos from WWII of women. Note: there's one that looks like she flashing the camera but my wife assured me she's showing protective underwear.

I would have included images but they're rather large.

Kinekt Gear Ring



The Gear Ring is made from high quality matte stainless steel. It has a total of six micro-precise gears that will turn in unison when the outer rims are spun.





It’s currently available from… Continue

Fallout 3: Lessons at Piecraftian Fashion

If you never heard of fallout 3, you better start here first.



Since the whole concept of fallout 3 is in a post-apocalypse world, there is little point in mentioning the rare pieces of ottensian fashion which can be found. Here are some examples of how "the wastelanders" go about their daily, troublesome, lives.
