Heuer Sebring Stopwatch

A really rare and really clean example of a single piece Heuer. These things are hard to justify to the bank account, but man… They are dope.

Samsung Galaxy Book S

Read More

Samsung launched this laptop at the same event they launched the new Note 10. It didn’t get a ton of coverage, but it’s important for two reasons if you are an Android/Windows guy:

  1. Samsung is trying to compete with the Apple ecosystem. Adding a capable laptop with an LTE connection is a big step in the right direction.
  2. Supposedly, this laptop has 23 hours of battery life. If true, that’s HUGE.

In my mind the only problem with the Android/Windows setup over an Apple setup (beyond the ecosystem), is simply the Windows OS. It’s certainly improved over the years, but it’s just not as livable or stable as MAC OS.

The Gear Journal On Instagram

Read More

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter… It’s all pretty vile. Essentially, members of each are selling out their privacy to support their narcissism. As such, each platform has turned into a battlefield where people are seemingly at war with “friends” in an effort to finally figure out who has it best.

I’d make fun of them, but I too participate. I gave up Facebook long ago, but I still have an Instagram account. And guess what? So does The Gear Journal.
