Mujjo s stab at the poorly supported touchscreen glove space is the only pair of leather touchscreen gloves worth getting excited about or owning.The gloves are wind and waterproof Ethiopian lambskin, with a magnetic clasp that will make you happy every time you snap it.Of course, you don t really need the clasp because the gloves actually fit.No gross-looking fingertip dots here either.I immediately got my hands in older Mujjo s Single Layered Touchscreen Gloves back when they were first released, and while they were certainly the best I had used at the time, they weren t easy to snap, and they weren t leather.The Leather Touchscreen Gloves fix everything this product category has lacked up to this point, and are an easy recommendation for pretty much anyone.
"When San Francisco Burned" by Douglas L. GistLouis P. Selby was working in his family's confectionery shop on Market Street when the greatest natural disaster that ever hit San Francisco, the 1906 earthquake, shook the city to its core.Selby grabbed a camera, and with his brothers in tow, took to the streets to document the devastation in the days after the event.For 110 years, those images remained in a leather-bound album kept in Selby and his wife's Bay Area home.In March, Selby's grandson, Doug Gist, unearthed the photos and published them in a book, "When San Francisco Burned: A Photographic Memoir of the Great San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of 1906."The tremors broke the city's water mains, making it nearly impossible for firefighters to quell the blaze.
While nominally aimed at comic book enthusiasts, the franchise wisely dispensed with dense backstories, superfluous characters and silly costumes in favour of the bare, leather-clad essentials.There are simply too many second-tier characters, carried-over plot threads and half-remembered flashbacks to tell a cohesive story.This is particularly evident in the first act which seesaws wildly between plots and continents as the many too many protagonists embark on disconnected quests and errands.They all look like Skeletor s B-team henchmen from He-Man: Masters Of The Universe.For example, there s a scene where these ultra-cartoony, lycra-clad villains are hanging out in the ruins of Auschwitz.By our count, this scene has now appeared in the X-Men movies four times.

Drive 2: The Uber YearsDrive is a great thriller movie with just the right amount of leather gloves and sex for a criminals.It s made by Joey Thompson, a YouTuber with a surprisingly strong resemblance to Ryan Gosling.He does a stellar job of making fun of LA, Drive and vapers in the one four-minute trailer.DON T MISS: How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6sIt also does a good job of lampooning Uber and the gig economy — working crazy hours at weird times, putting up with the weirdest requests, all for pretty awful pay.If you think the opening lines sound familiar, that s because it perfectly rips off the real intro to Drive: This kid is the best driver in all of L.A. You set a pickup location, he ll find you.Thanks to the sharing economy, living in five different cities in five years has never been more doable.
You can buy an iPhone as you walk down The Avenue, enjoy a seminar with artists in The Forum, fix your laptop under the trees in the Genius Grove and get some training in The Boardroom.The stores confounded early expectations and helped Apple become one of the most admired consumer brands in history.The reboot was led by design chief Jony Ive and Angela Ahrendts, who worked at Burberry before joining Apple two years ago to run the retail operations.If the concept works as designed, you'll buy into Apple's ecosystem of hardware, content and services—at least for another few years.Visitors will be able to enjoy the show from a few dozen wooden and leather stools designed by Ive's elite unit.This space extends Apple's push to attract business customers that has seen the company team up with Cisco, SAP and IBM in recent years.The San Francisco version is also home to a fountain by local sculptor Ruth Asawa.When Apple reported slowing iPhone sales earlier this year, Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said customers weren't upgrading their handsets as quickly as they once did.

The RX 350 comes from a long and distinguished line of premium people movers that have served as the Lexus linchpin in its gradual colonization of U.S. suburban driveways since it first appeared on the scene in the late 1990s.The redesigned 2016 Lexus RX 350 highlights everything that's made the SUV such a perennial contender while introducing a few new tricks to keep the faithful interested and help fend off the growing tide of competitors that have crowded into the luxury people mover market.Inside, the RX features an exquisitely-detailed, leather-wrapped cabin that feels every bit the equal of its price tag which ranges from just under $42,000 all the way up to $49,000 for the F Sport edition , along with a respectable amount of passenger room front and rear and a helpful, although not class-leading 56.3 cubic feet of total cargo space.Fuel mileage for the heavier MDX is listed at one mile per gallon less for each respective measure.Standard with the Audi is a 2.0-liter, 220 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but you can also order supercharged 272 horsepower 3.0-liter V6 if you crave additional performance.It's also a looker, with fashion-forward design that finally separates it from its Ford Edge platform-mate, and it's packed with high-tech features.
Aston Martin has officially debuted the Vanquish Zagato Concept, a one-off showstopper combining the company s bullish good looks with the legendary artistry of Italian design house Zagato.Starting on May 21, the car will be showcased at the Concorso d Eleganza Villa d Este, a classic car exhibition held on the banks of Italy s Lake Como.The Italian influence is especially evident out back as there are four exhaust outlets instead of two, and the rear fascia features rounded tail lamps in true Zagato style.Over the years, we have developed and refined our own design language and we have always gone that little bit further with our special series cars like CC-100, One-77, and Aston Martin Vulcan, said Aston s executive VP, Marek Reichman.Read more: We left the skis at home and shredded some powder in an Aston Martin insteadInside, the spiffy grand tourer boasts a quilted Z pattern across the upholstery, and there are accents of anodized bronze, aniline leather, and carbon-fiber just about everywhere you look.It d be a shame if such talented artisans did all this without touching the engine, but don t worry — the 6.0-liter V12 under the hood has been upgraded to 600 horsepower.
That's why we're opening Stuff's Gadget Hall of Fame, a regularly updated place to get misty-eyed about the best tech we've seen and fondly tinkered with over the years.Unfortunately, wannabe Keanus were dismayed to discover that the spring-loaded mechanism was actually added specially for the film and didn t find its way on to a real phone until the 7110 – three years after the launch of the 8100s.Still, the 8100 was far from just a flashy movie prop - it had tech that was worthy of its futuristic silver-screen appearance.Aimed at gents in pinstriped suits rather than computer-hacking kung-fu fighters in leather coats, the 8100 was the only Nokia ever to ship with Smart SMS, meaning it could be updated over the air.It was also ahead of the game with its li-ion battery as found in today s phones , so many 8100s are still going strong.The phone came in four versions, depending on your network.
A watch strap is just a strip of leather, right?Nope!Not when it s handcrafted like this.There are so many steps involved in the process of making a leather watch strap that it borders on ridiculous.From selecting the leather to stamping out the strap to shaving down the interior to dyeing the material to carving out the holes, the details are intense but a pleasure to watch.

Incase Icon SleeveSafety doesn t have to come at the cost of the Mac s sleek lines and stylish design.Like an Apple-branded iPad cover, the Incase Icon sleeve features a magnetic snap closure that not only keeps your Mac safe, but means getting it in and out is a simple, single-handed affair.Who s for a purple, green, or yellow?Keeping your MacBook as safe as Luke and Leia, the neoprene body is made from the same stuff as a wetsuit – perfect for keeping your kit scratch and dent free, although we wouldn t suggest dropping it in any water.The snap-on Incase Hardshell has you covered here, acting as a second skin for the aluminium body.As well as continuing to offer unhindered access to the Mac s limited port array – and keeping that ventilation system clear – it comes in a transparent design so can enjoy Apple s sleek lines alongside your peace of mind.

PayPal's Rob Skinner is pretty happy with his five-year old prediction that we could all be using a digital wallet instead of a physical one by 2016, but his thoughts have already turned to what the next five years will bring.It was 2011 when Skinner and PayPal went public with the assertion that we could be using just our phone to pay for things within the next five years, and amid the arrival of payment systems from Apple and Google, you could indeed leave the house in many cities without picking up your faithful leather friend.The obvious question, of course, is to ask what 2021 will bring to the world of consumer payment, and although Skinner is not yet ready to roll out the big proclamation, PayPal is already pursuing many avenues to ensure it remains at the heart of its market.PayPal is a significant global brand, but a lot of its most important work goes on without people being aware that they are using technology owned or powered by PayPal."We are happy that PayPal is very well recognised and trusted... but equally the best kept secret is PayPal is behind the scenes powering so many mobile payments," says Skinner."The purchase of payment gateway tech company Braintree a few years ago was so important.
