Nerdsday: 8 Bit Sunglasses of Awesome – Have Arrived!

Possibly you remember when I wrote a blog about Russian company, Samal Design,  producing a series of super expensive sunglasses with 8 bit style frames (here). In my opinion they weren’t all that special. Of course quality of lens can make a huge difference but not a $500 vs. $7.99 difference. I’ll take the $7.99 ones please. I knew it would only be a matter of time before the 8 Bit Sunglasses were made cheaply, and ready for mass consumption, by me, and other nerds who love 8 Bit Awesome. Check out these beauties available on amazon now: 8 Bit…

Nerdsday: Customize Your Tee From Your iPhone

The world’s first programmable t-shirt exists. If you never thought all that awesome shit from the future (movie futures) would happen, you were dead wrong. Every day crazy new technology is being discovered, and even fashion is getting in on it. If it is possible, humans will find a way, eventually. From your phone you can change the tee’s design to your latest tweet or status, take photos, share photos, share music and more. The t-shirt itself has endless options with the iOS app, and the T-shirt’s built in camera, mic, accelerometer and speakers. The programmable tee, coined tshirtOS, is made…

Nerdsday: Pixel Frame Glasses by Samal Design

French designer Dzmitry Samal has created a simple yet futuristic design for sunglasses, the pixel. Retro and futuristic is what most people are saying about the design, confusing to think about the two being one in the same but somehow Samal managed it. It almost seems silly that no one has come up with pixel frame glasses before and at the price these things run, it wont be long before knockoffs are all over the planet. The explanation for the price of these sunglasses, dark lenses or clear ones, is the quality of the lens themselves. The glasses are made…

Nerdsday: Out of Print Clothing – Tee’s & Accessories for Book Nerds!

When I discovered Out of Print Clothing, I just about blew my paycheck…but, I do have some restraint. I did however immediately order two items representing two of my favorite books of all time (Animal Farm and The Outsiders) and added another several to my pinterest collections for later drooling and summer wardrobe buys. Almost all of us have read several of  “the classics” (at least in the U.S), even if they were forced onto us by our schools or parents and don’t remember them all, we did read them. The U.S. public education might be incredibly terrible in most states…

Nerdsday: X-Mini Capsule Speaker

I’ve been traveling fairly consistently since about 2005 and have gotten rid of most of the bulkier things I own. I haven’t owned a record player in 2 years (yet still haul around all my records) and haven’t had a stereo or CD player in even longer, relying on my iPhone and computer for my audio entertainment – and suffering greatly in sound quality as you can imagine. Until I got this little X-Mini speaker. Naturally, the first things I noticed about the speaker was that it’s bright pink color matched my iPhone case perfectly and it also fit perfectly…

Nerdsday: Infuse iPod Nano Wristband

What’s better than a watch that looks like a mini mixtape? It just might be a watch that actually plays music. I got one of these wristbands to go along with my Nano 6G this year for Christmas, and although I really love the EOS Mixtape watch (and will wear it all the damn time if I ever get it), I think my new iPod goes best with the Infuse wristband and the fancy “Wristlock” mechanism that locks it in safely. It’s basic enough looking watchband, which keeps it diverse – comes in black, white or brown, and so far…

Nerdsday: Confessions of a Contact Lens Lover (who bought glasses)

So several months ago I got some new eyeglasses. Since I’ve been traveling and there was a mix up at our mail service, I didn’t actually get them until a month ago when we were staying in Austin. I’ve been a committed contact lens wearer for years. I hadn’t even bothered to replace my glasses from 10 years ago until they finally broke. I still wore them around the house for a while – with a huge piece of black duct tape driving me nuts in the corner of my eye, but I couldn’t wear them outside on days where…

Nerdsday: Fashion and the iPhone/iTouch

I’ve had my iTouch for over a year now and my iPhone for 6 months. Do I need them both? Yes. Don’t think I’m spoiled or rich – the iTouch was a Christmas present and I paid $99 for my iPhone refurbished. I use both of them every day, all day long and can’t remember my life without them. I may be a little embarrassed of that but that doesn’t make it any less true.   I watch movies on planes and in bed on my iTouch, read books on Stanza on my iPhone. My iTouch plays Pandora internet radio…
