With built-in wireless standards for WiFi, Zigbee, and Bluetooth, the Wink Relay replaces a traditional light switch and brings a 4.3-inch touchscreen controller to allow you to connect all things that are Wink-compatible, including lights, smoke alarms, garage doors, locks, thermostats, blinds, and more. “There’s lots of times where controlling this from the app makes more sense, but there’s also lots of times when you’re at home where your phone’s in your purse, or you run out the door, or you’re in your bedroom,” McGovren, Wink’s head of marketing, says. “Sometimes it’s much easier to reach over and tap a light switch like you would normally do.”
The Relay is quite pricey with pre-orders starting at $300 via Amazon.

The BlackBerry's new Passport smartphone, a device with a keyboard and touchscreen. The 4.5-inch BlackBerry Passport is about the same size and shape as a US passport.

With the Whiskey Wedge($15 Pre-order), now you can keep your spirits chilled without watering them down.
"Each unit comes with one Double-Old Fashioned Whiskey Glass and one silicone mold. Simply add water into the double old fashioned glass, insert the mold, then freeze. The ice forms into a wedge and, similar to a glacier, melts slowly due to the reduced amount of surface area. "
  

Inherent Vice Trailer

“Inherent Vice,” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel.
When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well, easy for her to say.
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.
With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp—all Thomas Pynchon.
