DoubleKick Caffeinated Hot Sauce, which we found on ThinkGeek, purports to combine the best of Asian and Southwestern chili sauces before leveling up with ginger and caffeine. How much caffeine does it have really? Well, every serving of 1 tsp serves up 12 mg. Of course, there’s [...]
If sympathy for Batman could be captured and sold in any one product, the Batman Family Car Decal would be it. It features two gravestones, one for Bat-daddy Dr. Thomas Wayne and the other for Bat-mommy Martha Wayne, as well as one Batman with a sadface.

Smitten. That’s what we are for Cape Town’s Truth Coffee. Blame the stripped away industrial interior, the long hanging lights, the beautiful vintage detailing on the coffee bar, and the heavy wooden communal tables, anchored with piping. The ruby red stools, the pops of color, and the grand silver roasting machine help too. Through and [...]

Trust ThinkGeek to come up with the coolest gadgets. Once you plug in the tentacle into your USB port, it will come alive and squirm about… and that’s all. It won’t store data. It won’t open up some fancy phone app to let you dial through to the neighbourhood kraken. It just squirms about uncomfortably [...]

Yes, 3D movies make us want to throw up, and Think Geek has these marvellous 2D glasses with radial polarised optics that show just the right eye image to both eyes, so the 3D effect never has to destroy your moviegoing experience. Of course, you could simply go to a 2D movie screening instead. But you know, at least you have options.

I don’t think there’s a genuine technology company that doesn’t do a good beanbag in the office. It’s like tea and milk: creative geeks with computers need something comfy to park themselves on while they tap away at their Apple Macs, all the while whistfully dreaming they’re extras in the movie The Social Network. So [...]
