It has a processor made specifically for fast Web surfing, an express card for mobile broadband, and a roomy keyboard.

Del Conte said many of the women she polled on Twitter said they wanted the new Storm. People love their BlackBerries, but want a touchscreen phone like the iPhone. Also, Verizon customers wanted a touchscreen option as well because they weren’t willing to leave AT&T. The Storm is only about 2 weeks old and it is really popular so far. It is sleek and shiny and it is a great messaging phone altogether. The touchscreen is different because you have to actually push down on the phone to activate a function. It also is able to run hi priced gadgets applications at once, which is something the iPhone can’t do.

Fortunately, more modern battery technology can drastically reduce the size of a power pack. The Cobra JumPack featured in this list is smaller than a videocassette (if you can remember what one of those looks like), yet has enough power to jump-start most cars.

Even in our own homes, it’s amazing how many toxins and chemicals (and dust, of course) can be found in the air around us. It’s actually terrifying, so I recommend you don’t Google any of the statistics. With that being said, one of the cool gadgets for men (and women) that we love is this Awair Smart Air Quality Monitor. It analyzes the air quality around you, monitoring things like carbon dioxide, toxic chemicals, and dust, as well as temperature and humidity (although, admittedly, you don’t really need the two latter since those are things you can typically just feel). Still, it hooks up to an app on your smartphone, and will send you alerts when the quality of air changes. It’s like a high-tech carbon dioxide monitor that also does a ton of other monitoring for you. And, it has an LED on the front for a quick snapshot of the air quality around you. Want to impress your friends with a futuristic-looking gadget? The Awair monitor is a great choice.

These touchscreen-friendly gloves from Moshi have conductive fiber on all 10 fingertips. The gloves come in light and dark gray in a number of sizes with a warm microfleece lining inside. They’re super warm and fuzzy, plus they have excellent grip — I’ve used them with a very slippery glass-backed phone, too. The gloves are fairly responsive on touchscreens, though you’ll need to press more deliberately.

I was on vacation in France in 2002 (I was 7 or 8 back then) and I visited a local toy store multiple times because they had really cool stuff. But then, one day I saw a cylinder-shaped oil and water emulsion toy with spiral stairs inside that you can put upside down all the time and then you see little drops of blue oil rolling down in a spiral. It was so satisfying to watch, even better than a lava lamp! They had them in blue or pink. I wanted the blue one, but my mom didn’t want to buy it for me. For years I was searching for it as a child but I never found it in another store, not even on my next visit to France. I was so in love with that thing…but one year ago at the end of 2016, I visited a store in my country that I’ve known for years, and there I found them! I was so happy to finally see them after years of searching that I almost cried, they even had one in purple! —s4ef321550

Several European countries are moving towards an all-electric fleet, well ahead of the fossil-loving States. The Voitures Extravert Quintessenza Electric Porsche was created to ensure vintage Stuttgart releases don’t go the way of their engines. Instead of ripping apart otherwise functional cars, they salvage unusable 911s, stripping them to the bare frame before replacing their dino-drinking flat 6s with a powerful all-electric drive system. The result is a car that retains its classic appearance but is equipped for a post-petrol future.

    Modern home security devices are loaded with sensors. So is your old phone. Only one is basically free. Haven turns any old Android device (running 4.1 or later) into an intelligent monitoring solution. Crafted in collaboration with Edward Snowden, it’s meant to help protect journalists, whistleblowers, or anyone else at risk of forced disappearance. You can set it up to detect sound, motion, or both, and tell it to record video once it’s set off, catching any would-be assailant with either the front or rear camera.
    While most smartphones can be used as personal hotspots, it’s still handy to have wireless connectivity in your car, so your phone doesn’t become unusable with everyone grabbing its data connection. Mobile hotspots have been around for a while, but one that specifically hooks into your car’s power socket makes the whole process seamless.
