View Quest Retro 1
Blast From The Past
While you’re usually the guy with the latest and greatest gadget, you still have a soft spot in your tech heart for the nostalgic. When you’re feeling old timey slip your iPod into the Retro Radio ($160) from View Quest and get your retro on. Designed to look like a vintage radio, complete with leather casing and carrying handle, the Retro Radio is the perfect combination of past and present. The DAB/FM radio features 10 presets, an auto-scan function for finding stations, an iPhone/iPod dock, 2x2watt speakers, and a backlit LCD screen. Cue up Johnny B. Goode on the old iPod and take a trip back in time.
Toastabags | By Boska Holland
It’s In The Bag
Since you opted for a smaller apartment in the city (you’ve got countertop for miles at the 1001 Nights Custom Home in Madrid) you don’t have room for extra appliances. But you’re a sucker for a hot sandwich. Next time you’re craving a Panini, grab a Toastabag by Boska Holland ($15.00) and throw your sandwich into the toaster with all the fixings. The fast, no mess bags are the ideal way of preparing a grilled cheese sandwich in a toaster. The fine mesh allows for crispness while catching any drips. When you’re done you can throw the bags in the dishwasher (like you have room for one of those) or wash by hand with warm water about 50 times before they’re no longer reusable. But who are we kidding? A man who buys a bag to toast his dinner in doesn’t do dishes. So plan on buying a crate load.
