A Gift a Day: A Power Bank for the Multitasker Who's Always at One Bar of Battery Life

Scads of people are going to get a new phone, tablet, or other impressively marketed mobile device as a holiday gift this year. What they likely won't get is a way to charge said device while they're on the go. So as an addendum to the gadgets and gizmos we're giving this year, we're also including one of Radio Shack's impressive portable power packs. Our favorite is a slim all-black variant that will give an iPhone about 13 hours of talking time once it's dead, and even turns off automatically once whatever it charging is back to full capacity.

Beats by Dre Teams Up With the Godfather of Harajuku

For a couple of seasons now, Beats by Dre has been collaborating with of-the-moment artists (including Tristan Eatom and graffiti kingpin Futura) to produce one-off, art-world takes on their cult-favorite products. Now, the brand has teamed up with Japanese musician and fashion designer Hiroshi Fujiwara—who some call the godfather of Harajuku—on a super sleek iteration of the Pill speaker and Solo2 headphones, which both retail for $200. Fujiwara's version is a hyper-minimalist, refined glossy silver and matte white set, with classic navy details that we definitely wouldn't mind finding under the tree. see more

A Gift a Day: This Camera Will Film 360 Degrees of Your Next Adventure

These Speakers Help You Listen To Music and Save the Environment at the Same Time

Audiophile approved quality and environmental sustainability don't necessarily seem like common goals, until now. Vers Audio's new line of Q speakers are handmade from solid wood (you can choose between walnut or ash) that infuse some organic modernism into a powerful bluetooth speaker that won't take up more room on your shelf than a paperback book. The speakers, which come in two sizes, utilize natural wood acoustics to decompress sound (which digital files tend to constrict), meaning your carefully curated Spotify playlists sound better than ever. Plus, Vers uses all sustainable materials (no endangered woods here) and even plants see more

A Gift a Day: Don't Scream at Your TV. Talk to It.

You know what's old-school? Yelling at your TV out of frustration for, say, dropping your cable or satellite connection, for your team fumbling, or for mysteriously going dark in the middle of your favorite Shonda Rhimes show. But the new way of watching TV involves actually talking to it instead of just at it, and that's why we love Google's new Nexus Player. see more

5 Reasons to Embrace Online Dating

"How would you feel about letting a man smell your feet?" is not a question that anyone has ever asked me in person. But online? Well, online is a different story. In fact, I've been asked that very question twice on the Internet in the last three weeks. (For the record, both gentlemen received a hard pass from me, God bless 'em.) I realize that uncomfortable anecdote is an interesting, perhaps counterintuitive way to begin an essay extolling the virtues of online dating, but bear with me—it actually illustrates one of the many reasons to fully embrace the current offering see more

New Website Will Help You Name Your Hipster-y Farm-to-Table Restaurant

Are you a Brooklyn resident but feel that your relationship with your neighborhood is so much more? Does your gluten-free heart only really feel at home on the slightly shabby yet ever-so-charming streets of your truly hip borough? Do you wear skinny jeans and scoop-neck tees and fedoras? Do you have an unironic mustache (and you wax it)? Do you eat kale more than three times a week? Do you ask where your beef was raised? If you answered yes to even one of those questions, then this website is for you (and your future business). At its core, see more

Stop Being So Mean to Celebrities on Twitter Already

Jimmy Kimmel's series "Mean Tweets"—wherein famous people read vicious social-media swipes at themselves on camera—has been going on for quite some time now. But his most recent edition, above, is particularly heavy with A-listers, including the ever-hated lifestyle guru (and sometimes actress-singer) Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunham, and current Vegas showgirl Britney Spears. And somehow, someone out there found something mean to say to the incredibly likable Chris Pratt. Heartless. see more
