    According to GroupOn CEO Andrew Mason who is on stage right now at Social Currency CrunchUp, GroupOn was originally a side project Mason started in order to make money, “We tried a zillion things” Mason said.

  • Battery Snaps make any 9V battery into a flashlight

    I’ve got a Maglight in the closet because it doubles as a bludgeon, but I think I might get a couple of these to keep around just in case. They only cost 5 bucks, so you could get a dozen and be set for life. All you do is press the Snap onto the top of a regular battery, and you’ve got a working single-LED flashlight. Not going to light up the moon with that, but kids will love it… Read More

  • Review: Energizer Hard Case Professional Headlight


    Do you play too much Splinter Cell? Do you sneak around the neighborhood knocking people unconscious and dragging their bodies into the shadows pretending to be Sam Fisher ?

  • K2 'Porcupine' flashlight for blinding and poking

    Ah, the convergence device. Is there anything better? Probably, but let’s try to stay focused here. Speaking of focused, how would you like 70 lumens of “eye-blinding white light” to freeze you like a deer on a dark Wisconsin road just before taking a nice set of “sharpened retractable spikes” to the noggin? If this doesn’t sound appealing to you, maybe… Read More

  • Pak-Lite Is Awesome

    I love minimalist products. There is something deliciously refreshing about them. As everything becomes super complicated, it’s nice to have some thing that retains functional simplicity. Take Pak-Lite for example. With two ultra bright white LED bulbs, it simply snaps on top of a nine-volt battery. Probably kicks the crap out of most giant flash lights too. Bet it isn’t too happy… Read More

  • Killer Flashlight Will Burn Your House Down

    OK, so this thing is pretty ridiculous. One industrious geek used Maglite parts with an Osram Sylvania bulb at 80 times its regular luminosity powered by twelve 1200mV NiMH batteries to achieve total paper combustion. It’s too bad those unfortunate boys in Lord of the Flies didn’t have one of these. Piggy (that’s what we call Vince)! Custom Flashlight Starts Fires, Blinds… Read More
