» USPS Informed Delivery. Set this up recently and I find it really interesting. They send you a photo every day of the mail that will be coming to your mailbox. Handy if you are waiting on something in particular and want to know if it's being delivered.     #

» SCORKL - Breathe underwater with TOTAL freedom. I like the idea - especially that you can refill with a hand pump but yeesh that price ($250!)     #

» Over the weekend I picked this up at the GoPro Mountain Games: Matador Freerain24 Backpack and I kept thinking "I know I've seen this before". Then I found this in my open browser tabs: Sea x Sky - The Waterproof Backpack That Fits In Your Pocket. I have no idea if the two companies are related, or if one ripped off the other but those are identical bags...     #

» OctoSnap - breakaway header snapper. The shipping costs more than the device but I think it's pretty handy so I went for it. Too bad you can't buy them local to the US without paying international shipping (not that I'm complaining, I know other countries almost always have to pay outrageous shipping rates...)     #
