If your name isn’t William, and you don’t need a gift for a dude named William, I can’t imagine why you’d buy a Willy Care grooming kit. I mean, I know it’s a common name and all, but are there really enough Willies out…
The Briefcase: Crosley gets a bad rap. Sure, they’re a budget record player manufacturer, but their styling is certainly on-point and their gear is a lot more accessible than some of the competition. This handsome briefcase-style turntable is not just a capable player; it also features USB connectivity so you can plug it into your PC or Mac. That means you could feasibly use it to rip your records to digital, if you wanted.

You can employ the old-fashioned way of determining the level of doneness of your favorite slab of steak and you will more or less end up with the perfect steak in almost half the time. But if you use the SteakChamp Ultimate 3-in-1 Steak Thermometer, you’ll get fantastic results all the time, every time. There’s no need for second-guessing your meat with your fingers. All you need is to insert the SteakChamp all the way into your meat and it will return the level of doneness in flashing color-coded LED lights. The secret is the thermo-sensor in the entire length of the probe.

Aside from running out of breath to inflate it, this waterproof cushion takes out all the work of taking a bath. You, too, can be highly entertained by your iPhone homescreen. The pillow also works just as well (if not better) out of the bath.
The first 8K (7,680×4,320-pixel) display, this 32-inch monitor crams in enough resolution to retouch the hairs off a model’s face and nudge your pixels precisely in Adobe Illustrator. It doesn’t match that by covering the entire Rec 2020 color space — it’s only 10-bit color, not 12-bit — and it’s not clear whether it stores the color profiles in hardware or not, but you can’t expect everything at once.
