It's such a modern take on a classic childhood staple with an adult twist. I find it amusing that there's even a bar key bottle opener on the bottom of the slingshot. The BRNLY SlingPop Slingshot from Burnley Knives is small, designed to fit in your back pocket. I like that it comes with a spare band with a leather pad, fifty 5mm ball bearings, and a hand-screened shop rag for cleaning. I really do like the anodized black finished look, though it was available in a few different colours. Black just looks so sleek, I couldn't resist. All I need is a leather ammo pouch to complete the look!

On the one hand, it's neat to be able to have physical photos in your hand immediately. On the other hand it's much more costly to keep buying film, rather than relying on a digital camera. I can see this camera being useful for if you have to spend extended times away from your computer. 2012-10-15 14:28:21 http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=17140518 Apple iPhone 5 is here http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/apple-iphone-5-is-here-2/ http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/apple-iphone-5-is-here-2/ Here's a quick snapshot of some of the key features of the all-new iPhone 5... The new iPhone 5 is taller with the Retina Display expanded from 3.5 inches to 4 inches and it now has a 16:9 aspect ratio. Although taller the iPhone 5 is 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4S. Maybe because of complaints about the easily damaged glass back of the 4S Apple has returned to a metal back that reminds me of the original iPhone. Most importantly the new iPhone 5 will support 4G LTE networks in addition to the current support for GPRS, EDGE, EV-DO, and HSPA data networks. This is key because no matter how great the hardware if Apple's iPhone had slow connectivity they would be letting their competition pass them by. The iPhone 5 gets a faster chip called the A6. The A6 chip is two times faster than the current A5 chip. According to Apple, users will see Web pages load 2.1 times faster. Great battery life despite LTE. The iPhone 5 is supposed to get 8 hours of 3G talk time, 8 hours of 3G browsing, 8 hours of LTE browsing, 10 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, 10 hours of video playback, 40 hours of music playback, and 225 hours of standby time. The redesigned iPhone 5 has a new dock connector called "Lightning" which is significantly smaller. I'm sure this is going to annoy owners of current speaker docks, accessories, and charger/syncing cables since it will make them obsolete. On the software side the iPhone 5 ships with the new iOS 6 installed. 2012-09-27 21:11:12 http://www.apple.com/iphone/features/ Samsung Galaxy S3 http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/samsung-galaxy-s3-1/ http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/samsung-galaxy-s3-1/ I had the opportunity to play around with one of my buddy's last gen Galaxy phone and it was pretty good. I'm sure this one is even better for you Android fans out there. You all know I'm waiting for the iPhone 5 with baited breath though, lol. 2012-09-20 13:37:17 http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/mobile-devices/smartphones/android/GT-I9300MBDBTU HTML5 Cheat Sheet http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/html5-cheat-sheet/ http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/html5-cheat-sheet/ Good to have a quick reference! 2012-09-17 18:51:20 http://www.shibleysmiles.com/2011/10/html-cheat-sheet-list-of-html-tags.html iPad cupholder mount http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/ipad-cupholder-mount/ http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/ipad-cupholder-mount/ "This is the mount that fits in a cupholder to provide easy access to an iPad or tablet computer.

When you turn on "LED Flash Alerts" in your Accessibility settings, your iPhone's LED camera flash lights up for calls, texts, emails, and for all Push Notifications (Twitter, Facebook, Games, or any app with Push Notification settings)." It's pretty neat for anyone who wants a silent notification that's still very obvious. You can get one for a $35 USD pledge on Kickstarter. 2012-08-27 16:40:18 http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/794466365/flashr-ios-led-flash-notifications-case-for-iphone?ref=live VuPoint Solution's Magic Wand http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/vupoint-solution-s-magic-wand/ http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/vupoint-solution-s-magic-wand/ This is pretty neat, although I'm not sure could find a useful application for it in my day to day... 2012-08-24 16:28:33 http://blog.laptopmag.com/vupoint-solutions-magic-wand-is-not-as-accurate-as-harry-potters Fitbit - Chic Accelerometer http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/fitbit-chic-accelerometer/ http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/fitbit-chic-accelerometer/ Tracks: Steps Distance Floors Climbed Calories Burned Flower (overall recent activity level) Clock Makes me want to get get my jog on! 2012-08-23 18:19:06 http://www.fitbit.com/product/specs Wrist wearable iPod coming soon? http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/wrist-wearable-ipod-coming-soon/ http://www.favething.com/j-becker/my-tech-faves/wrist-wearable-ipod-coming-soon/ This would be so cool.
