Plinth - The Ultimate Universal Tablet Stand - Opened And Closed View
Plinth is a minimalist, universal tablet stand designed to make your life easier at home, at the office and while on the go! The Plinth is a truly universal device and works with all iPad models, Android and Windows phones and tablets, Kindle, iPhone – with or without cases. Not bigger than an iPhone 4, the Plinth stays quiet in your pocket, bag or tablet sleeve waiting to help you when you need it. Once you’re ready to fix your tablet into a more convenient reading or working position, the Plinth deploys with a touch of a button and is ready to offer a more comfortable and ergonomic position in less than a second – check out the video for a full demo on how it works.

I used the Plinth for about two days and I find a perfect mix between portability and usability. Big enough to comfortably and securely hold a 10.1-in tablet, while small enough to fit in your jeans pocket (literally), the Plinth is one of the most convenient tablet stands I came across. Not only that, but, as my regular PC is a small 11.6-in laptop, I used the Plinth as a laptop stand for these two days and it worked out perfectly. On the lowest angle position, the Plinth allowed me to raise my laptop to about 3-4-in (that’s about 10-12 cm), just what I needed for a more comfortable working position and better heat dissipation.

The Plinth is available in 4 color variations (graphite/grey, graphite/teal, white/grey, white/green) and will set you back $32 US, which, given it ingenious design and increased portability it’s a very reasonable price. Check it out …

SF Bags Spinn Case - The Coolest iPhone Case With Earbuds Carrier
Since Sony’s Walkman Cassette Player and even further back, people enjoying music on the go have a common problem – what to do and how to properly store their headphones without much effort and still having them handy when needed! And, as easy and simple as it sounds, it’s still a common problem even today! If you your earbuds around your smartphone they look ugly and they are uncomfortable in your pockets, if you throw them in your bag they’ll get tangled and you’ll have a hard time next time you want to use them, if you properly wrap them chances are you’ll not remember where you put them or you’ll forget them at home!

ALSO READ about the iPhone Leather Wallet Case by Pack & Smooch, the Wally Snap-On iPhone Leather Wallet Case By DistilUnion or this cool collection of 44 Utilitarian iPhone Cases we featured earlier.

While it might not be the ultimate solution for everyone, the iPhone Spinn Case comes with a very intelligent solution to this issue – as most people carry their smartphones in sleeves, pouches or cases, why not use this protective gear to also hold your earbuds? The Spinn iPhone case is available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and both iPhone 5 and 5S with or without the Apple case and it’s made of full grain leather with Ultrasuede interior liner. The case features a leather wheel centered on the security hook which allows you to wrap your earbuds around it and carry them securely stored. Also, while in use, you can wrap the extra cable around the leather wheel to keep it from tangling or staying in the way.

Ken Block Gymkhana 7 Wild In The Streets Of  Los Angeles - Someone Gave Ken Block a 845HP Mustang And This Is What Happened
Here’s the short story: Ken Block + 845HP 1967 Ford Mustang called Hoonicorn + a ton of insanity + tire smoke + director Ben Conrad (the guy behind the past three Gymkhana videos) + another ton of insanity + more tire smoke = Gymkhana 7

And here goes the long story – after three successful Gymkhanas, Ken Bock (the owner of DC Shoes and Hoonigan) partnered again with director Ben Conrad (also directed Recoil 2 and was the creative lead for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers and Iron Man 3) for for the seventh title of the Gymkhana series: Wild In The Streets Of Los Angeles. The clip shows Ken Block unleashed, driving a 845 horse power, 6.7-liter V8 supercharged 1967 Ford Mustang and drifting on the streets of LA. A crazy amount of insanity, a lot of driving skill, some cool panoramas of the empty streets of LA, a couple of Police cars involved in the Gymkhana and a lot of tire smoke make this clip the coolest one of the series. Check it our and let me know in the comments bellow.

I also embedded bellow Ken Block‘s first 6 Gymkhanas in case you missed them!
