The San Diego Film Festival is officially over after filling five days full of over 100 flicks, many of which will definitely be Oscar contenders this year. Though the festival has actually been around since 2001, it's only been within the past few years that it's really started to find its footing and this year's event had the best line-up yet. Check out the event's three biggest films below, the ones that exceeded our expectations (like The Imitation Game and St. Vincent) and the one that left us feelin
Roguish filmmaker Alexandre Aja looks like he could play a proper Jane Austin gentleman, but in fact he just might be even more evil than Voldemort. The “Splat Pack” horror movie filmmaker had a dream— a nightmarish dream—to turn Harry Potter into Satan, and his gruesome wish is about to come true with the Halloween release of his upcoming film Horns.
We were just as jazzed as the next person to hear Apple announce the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Apple Watch, but it looks like the Apple 6 Plus couldn't handle the pressure (literally). Several new reports are making it clear that Apple might have skimped on everyday wear-and-tear testing with their super skinny new release. Apparently, many of the lucky fans to have already picked up the new smartphone are pulling it out of their pockets to find the frame bent.
Bitcoin transactions aren’t exactly the status-quo and we’re not surprised. As cool as crypto-currency sounds, it’s matched by its complexity—if I’m paying with a digital currency, I want to make sure I’m not susceptible to digital hacking. It’s not too much to ask for right? Well, BitStash is here to make it easier to stash and use your Bitcoin “cash.”
With craft beer booming, everyone wants to be a home brewer nowadays, but actually doing it can be more of a commitment than you're prepared for—it's scientific, complicated, and requires a lot of patience and training to do right. If you would prefer just skipping all of the training and spending your time coming up with funny brew names based on your favorite yoga pose or Beyoncé song instead, the Brewbot is where you need to turn.
Take one avid Soul Cycler, combine with one large body of water, and mix well — that’s almost (okay, not at all) how this bike came about. Actually, Judah Schiller created the X1 Water Bike, it was so that he could bike across the San Francisco Bay.
If we were to say a Dyson sucked, it wouldn’t be an insult, it would be a compliment. Known for revolutionizing vacuuming technology, Dyson has done it again with the design of a reliable and pretty powerful vacuum that’ll suck all on its own, making your life a little easier and a little less...well, sucky. Similar to a Roomba, but backed with the power of Dyson, the not-even-available-yet Dyson 360 Eye will do more than push around dirt and entertain the cat.
The Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) is coming up quick and there is a lot in store for attendees. Starting on September 24 and running through to September 27, the 24-year-old event is expecting 500 exhibitors and 115 superyachts in the water (including 40 new builds), ranging in size from 24 (the Gigreca) to 91.5 meters (the Equanimity). The luxury yachting event certainly has a lot in store for casual guests, but they're focusing especially on yacht owners, captains, crews, and clients this year, striving to make sure everyone is happy and well taken care of.
When I was a freshman in college, there was a guy in my dorm who was always on a unicycle. I’d like to think he grew out of that unicycle and upon reading this (he definitely reads this site, by the way), he is struck with the need to buy the RYNO.
Going on an African safari is always going to be an unforgettable experience, but you will need the right equipment to make sure you really get the most from your trip. Sure, sometimes the animals come to you, but more often than not you will need a good pair of binoculars to really get up close (especially when it's an animal you don't actually want to get too near, like a toothy tiger), so you may as well get the best.
If you find yourself flying between Paris and New York fairly often, you should definitely check out La Compagnie. The business class-only boutique airline is fairly new still, having just been officially launched back in July by L’Avion Founder Frantz Yvelin (with the help of Former Swissair and JetAirways COO Peter Luethi), and wants to bring business class service "back to where it belongs."
Not to be outdone by the slew of Apple announcements this month, BlackBerry teamed up with Porsche Design to create the new, sleek and stylish P’9983. Like the exclusivity involved with owning a luxury car, the Porsche Design BlackBerry comes with several special features to set owners apart from other BlackBerry users.
