You won't be running Photoshop on it any time soon, but for the price, that's not surprising. Instead, the Chip Computer is aimed at tinkerers and others looking for a bare-bones system that can get you on the web, play media, and even run rudimentary games. This tiny single-board system is powered by a 1Ghz processor, and offers 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built-in, and an open source operating system. In addition, you can add-on VGA or HDMI adapters, run it off a battery pack, or even install it into a pre-configured, Game Boy-like case for on-the-go use. Not bad for something roughly the size of a couple AA batteries that costs less than a good pizza.
Grilling season has official begun. Make it more enjoyable with GasWatch. This app connects to a Bluetooth scale for your your propane tank, and measures the tank's weight to give you an accurate readout of how much gas you have left. It can also alert you when you're running low, and tell you how much cooking time you have left — so you don't put on a roast that takes an hour and a half to cook when you only have 45 minutes of gas remaining.
Sneakers. And nothing but sneakers. Slang is aiming to become the best place to buy and sell kicks by removing all the unnecessary burdens that come with posting on a site like eBay. It's completely app-based, and makes it easy to both search and post items, with listing that include key details like style number, photos of the original box and receipt, release year, and the nickname. Sharing your listing is simple as well, with a unique shortlink for each pair, and when it's time to pay or get paid, the service handles it all by emailing pre-addressed, insured shipping labels and holding the money in escrow until everyone's satisfied.
Odds are you aren't doing sets in the same venue every night. Why should your stand need to stay in one place? The Hoerboard Stereo.T DJ Stand is designed to move with you, thanks to a body that can be torn down or set up in as little as 10 minutes. Its modular nature lets you customize it to fit your needs — with space for turntables, DJ controllers, or CD-based setups, for example — and can be outfitted with laptop clips or monitor stands as needed. You can also get a flight case for it, so even if your gig is across the ocean, your stand will arrive there safe.
