Learning How to Brew a Wii

I had never come across this before and only recently inherited an used Nintendo Wii, but it looks like the Wii still has some tricks left. Released in 2006 and discontinued in 2013, the Wii hardware supports other uses like running emulators of other gaming consoles. By modding the Wii with the Homebrew Channel, users […]

Uncle Martian

This is so bad that it’s good! There can be no doubt that Uncle Martian, a new sports brand in China, is copying the look and logo of Under Armour. I mean really “Uncle Martian???” I guess any sportswear brand name is just a name, but Uncle Martian doesn’t conjure up images of sports or […]

Light It Up!

Looking for a floor lamp that lights up the area for reading purposes, not overall room lighting. At 4.8 stars out of nearly 2000 ratings, this Brightech floor lamp looks like it’ll do the job.

Target Kailua Getting Self Serving

Now this is a very welcomed change to the Target location on the Windward side. Check this out. Yes, that is a self checkout station. One of several in fact that’s being installed where the previous express registers were. If you’ve shopped at Target Kailua, you know of the line imbalance. There’s usually one or […]

Would an iPod Prince Edition Sell?

This goes beyond a royal purple aluminum exterior. This is more than Prince’s logo etched on the the back of the iPod. Listen with Beats by Dre headphones in either Purple Rain or a Diamonds and Pearls special makeups. This is more value than the limited edition Price iPod of 2009. Think of Prince’s songs […]

Custom Air Max Zero via Nike iD

Was fooling around with the build-your-own Nike iD service and came up with this pair of Air Max Zero. I like them but not at a $190 price tag. There are a lot of options to customize on the Zero so you could spend a ton of time playing around.

Boost Over Air Max

So my shoe tech of choice for trips has been Nike’s Air Max, preferably a full length Air Max setup ala Air Max 360. Several years back, the red-bubbled Air Trainer 1.3 protected my feet at Disneyland. In 2013, the Perry the Platypus-colored Air Max 90 rocked Alaska and Disneyland. Last year for HIChina15, I […]

Dispelling the Illusion of the Nike Factory Store

Don’t get me wrong. If I’m ever nearby a Nike Factory Store, I’m going in. But… after visiting three Nike outlets recently, I’ve come to realize that their offerings aren’t that good. While on vacation at Palm Springs, Hollywood, and Anaheim (with a stopover in Long Beach), I managed several (unplanned) visits to Nike Factory […]

The Elusive Kobe X

As Kobe Bryant’s career is quickly coming to a close, Nike is celebrating his career with numerous releases leading up to Mamba Day. From the Fade to Black pack, today’s release is a dark Kobe X with Flyknit. So far I’ve admired the Kobe X from afar and came so close to getting a pair […]

The Largest Starbucks?

This is most likely the largest Starbucks I have ever seen or been in, and this is at Universal Studios Hollywood. Keep in mind that Universal has several Starbucks locations. There’s one undergoing renovation at the CityWalk. If you’re going to ride all those escalators to the Lower Lot, Universal has your Starbucks needs covered […]
