Classic Marshall Stanmore Speaker
Most Bluetooth speakers out-there tend to follow the same design pattern – small, cylindrical or rectangular boxes made of modern materials with modern shapes … you know the kind, “you-saw-one-you-saw-them-all“, but Marshall’s new Stanmore speaker is something different, very different, focusing on the brand’s heritage and delivering a classic looking device with analog controls and a retro feel!

The Marshall Stanmore is the company’s latest speaker model. Following the successful Hanwell speaker, the Stanmore is a Bluetooth loudspeaker designed to look like a classic amp, which connects to iPhone or Android smartphones, tablets or any other Bluetooth enabled devices and allows user to stream and play music from their gadgets. The Stanmore can also be used via cables – it features a 3.5mm jack, RCA plugs and an optical input.

Horween Leather Bi-Fold Wallet by TheLeatherShop.com - Interior View
I love cool wallets. I find a cool wallet not only boosts personal confidence and makes you feel the king of the world (!!!), but also makes you look good and allows you to make a statement, just like a pair of cool shoes, a fancy leather belt or a stylish timepiece!
The Bi-Fold Wallet from TheLeatherShop.com is a such cool piece of masculine gear! The Bi-Fold Wallet is made of high quality, strong Horween leather hand stitched with heavy duty waxed thread and features two main compartments for cash bills, three credit card compartments as well an ID card slot on the left hand side. The wallet has a slim design, fancy burnished leather edges and a lot of detailing elements designed to make it into a real head-turner: the Moose Brand logo is embossed on the front of the wallet and the TheLeatherShop logo is present on the interior card pocket and on the external side of the fold as well, a fancy slim line cut into the leather goes around the wallet margins on the upper side as well as it’s present on the outer fold to help the wallet keep it’s slim format.

ALSO FROM TheLeatherShop.com: Stitch-less Leather Rivet Wallet, Minimalist Slim Wallet and the Palm Wallet

While I am more of a minimalist wallet guy type, I used the Bi-Fold for a couple of weeks and I was very pleased with it. Other than it’s fancy look, the wallet is very well build and it’s designed to minimize the bulk – for example the leather pieces used to make the credit card slots are cut to not overlap on the sewing, which helps the entire wallet keep it’s slim format even when filled with cash and cards – check the review video to see more about it.

The Bi-Fold wallet is available in Brown (like the model reviewed here) and in Black. Check it out on TheLeatherShop.com website.

23-in Full HD HP Sprout Creativity Station Product J4W72AA#ABA
There’s been a while since we heard exciting news from the desktop side of personal computing! But that’s all about to change with the Sprout, the latest HP project in desktop personal computers, a 23-in touch screen Windows 8.1 machine with Intel RealSense 3D camera which combines depth-sensing and infrared cameras for accurate 3D scanning and a second screen projected on a large capacitive touchpad called TouchMat to allow users Kinect-type interactions with the PC. So how does it actually work? The main screen of the Sprout works just like any Windows 8 touch enabled LCD. The Illumintor (that scanner part) scans 2D and 3D objects placed on the TouchMat, transfers them live to a design app on the Sprout and allows users to interact with scans using the same TouchMat as input device and secondary display at the same time! Cool, isn’t it?

The HP Sprout Creativity Station is powered by a 4th gen Core i7-4790S processor and has NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics, 1TB of storage, 8GBs of RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and a 23″ Full HD 1080p touch-enabled backlit LCD display.
