The ultimate geek pin-up calendar is back for the third year in a row. The Nerdcore 2009 Calendar ($25) includes plenty more oversized adult sci-fi-themed photography, along with plenty of important dates, including both regular holidays and nerdy events like Comic-Con, movie releases, anniversaries for major franchises, and more.
From the makers of the badass, retina-scorching SureFire flashlights comes the SureFire Pen ($125). It sports a body made from hard anodized aerospace-grade aluminum with stainless steel on the tip, pocket clip, and the tailcap, which itself features a rounded window breaker — handy! It also comes with a Schmidt Technology easyFLOW ink cartridge, but can use nearly any ink cartridge with a simple adjustment. A virtually indestructible pen that performs great and breaks glass: What more could you ask for?
Protein bars usually contain as much sugar as a doughnut and have an ingredient list that requires a doctorate to pronounce. RXBARs are different. With no more than eight ingredients, each bar contains real, whole foods and delivers 12g of quality protein without any added sugar. At the core of every bar is a mixture of egg whites, fruits, and nuts — which they print right on the front of the package — and each of their 12 flavors are gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free. Our favorites are Chocolate Sea Salt, Blueberry, and Peanut Butter, but we recommend starting with the best seller pack, which comes with six of their top selling flavors. Keep a few of these in your gym bag, office drawer, and kitchen pantry for when you need a snack and resist the urge to scarf a candy bar.

It's a silver cube of power.
One-piece desks are a thing of the past. The OneLessDesk ($650) proves this point by utilizing two separate decks to maximize space and ergonomic comfort. The upper deck provides a large surface designed to hold your monitor, docks, and other accessories, complete with intelligent cord management and a hidden shelf to hold large external hard drives, unsightly power bricks, or even a Mac Mini-sized PC. The lower deck, which at 25.5" tall slides perfectly underneath the upper deck, provides an ergonomic work environment, with space for your keyboard, mouse, and other hands-on tools. The best part? It looks even better than it sounds.
