Bombas Socks – An Engineered Socks

socks. an item that we hardly give a damn about, but the guys behind the Bombas Socks are so serious about this seemingly minute everyday wear that we think they deserves to be called socks engineers. beyond its colorful and attractive styling lies a series of “sock engineering” that you will never look at another pair of socks the same again. the guys are calling the Bombas Socks the game-changing socks and looking at the specs and features (yes. it has both), there’s no reason to doubt that statement. crafted from long staple peruvian pima cotton which let you feel cool in the heat of the summer and warm in the cold of the winter, this particular material is said to wick moisture better over traditional cotton which translates to a comfy wear throughout the day, anytime of the year.

Mountek nGroove Snap CD Slot Car Mount

when you drive, where do you normally place your smartphone? on the dash, windscreen, or in the cupholder? not exactly the ideal spots, are they? Mountek has a better proposition: the Mountek nGroove Snap CD Slot Car Mount. as the product name implies, it is designed to mount into your car’s CD/DVD slot. a two-piece micro blade system expands inside the CD slot with a twist of the knob. the blade does not interfere with your CD slot’s operation (who uses CD these days anyway?) and when locked in place, it stays in place and is secure enough to survive even the bumpiest road. your smartphone or tablet is held on to the mount by a magnetic badge that adheres to the back of your device using a non-permanent adhesive. the badge is incredibly thin, at just 0.55mm, it should fit inside of a smartphone case, or on the inside of devices with removable battery cover.
