Ever gone somewhere needing to charge your phone only to realize you don’t have your cable with you? Who hasn’t!?!??! Check out these sleek portable cables by NOMAD. They first started on Kickstarter over a year ago and now offer a ChargeCard or ChargeKey for iPhones or Micro USB. What’s super cool is that they will even allow you to barter for one if you can come up with a good idea to help spread the word! But $25 to have charging capabilities with you at all times is something definitely worth paying for.

There have been a couple of blogs where I’ve seen this lamp show up, so I had to do a little more research to find out where it was coming from. This Book Rest Lamp is simple in design, yet adds some nice flare to your reading place.
The company that produces the lamp is called SUCK UK, based in East London. They have so many cool items, and do most of the designing in-house. But they also collab with people, and in the case of the BookRest Lamp, they teamed up with Lee Sang Gin.
The lamp is made with frosted glass, which provides ideal reading light, and when you’re done for the time being, you can place your book on top, creating a little house AND bookmark where you left off!
SUCK UK has been very generous in giving us one to give away to one of you! Although they are based in the UK, they have sent us one with a US plug, so this contest is open to US residents only. I
n order to enter, all you have to do is visit their site http://www.suck.uk.com, come back to this post, and leave a comment on what your 2nd favorite item is! Simple right?!?!! Contest is now over.

Thanks again to SUCK UK, and good luck to you all!

So I’ve recently transitioned to the technology dark side and got myself an iPhone4, and I absolutely love it. So besides all my time and money going towards finding the best app, I’ve also been looking at a ton of cases and bumpers to protect (Sméagol voice) “my precious”.
BaseOneLabs sent me their impactband to try out. Check out their demo vid:
With the 360˚ raised lip (front and back) this bumper protects the phone and allows the phone to still be seen. The impactband is made from thermoplastic polyurethane which absorbs 100% of impact. And it doesn’t matter if your phone is AT&T or Verizon, cause it fits both iPhone4s. You can get one of these for $25 and there is free shipping for both domestic and international orders!
We are giving one away to one of you! Right now they only have one color (black) but if you look at their website, they have a list of colors that are coming soon.
All you have to do is go to their website and leave a comment on this post telling us which color you would like! It’s that easy! Here is the link to their site (color options are bottom left): http://www.baseonelabs.com/products/impactbandtm-for-iphone-4 Contest is now over.

Brooklyn5and10 has blessed us again with another product to give away! The Golden Half camera is a 35mm half-format camera which basically turns a roll of 36 exposures into 72! They sent me one to try out and here are a few images. (Keep reading for a chance to win one!)
I found out that it’s easier to keep track if you take 2 pictures in a row, otherwise you could get confused as to which half of the frame you’re on. Also, when taking the film into develop, make sure that you leave special instructions saying that it’s double frame, otherwise it could be cut wrong.
One lucky reader will win the Golden Half camera shown above. To enter, all you have to do is click this link: Brooklyn5and10 Camera Shop, check out the other cameras, and come back to this post and leave a comment telling us which one is your other favorite! That’s it! Contest is now over.
One more thing! Brooklyn5and10 has so many other cool items that would make great holiday gifts! So they’ve given us a discount code to share with you until November 30, 2010! Use “LGCGH” to get 15% off the entire store (good for in stock items only).
Winner will be contacted through email. Contest ends November 22, 2010 @ 11:59PM PST. Rules are subject to change without any prior notification.
FIELD NOTES recently did a ltd. black cover letter press version of their handy notebooks. They’re all gone already, but this dreamy video captures the whole process, TOTALLY geeking out on it. YUM
We were featured on the blog IAMTHETREND the other day. We like this site because of it gives honest opinions and the fact that it pushes all things independent; giving you a daily variety of posts on clothing, music, wares, and art.
Adam Hendle is the man behind this site and besides running the blog, he’s also started his own company called Pong Deck, which is an extension to the game Beer Pong! You have to check out both sites and appreciate the hustle Adam has put into the both of them. Keep up the great work man!
You may remember us posting about the Mighty Wallet a while back. Well paperwallet is here to give you a few more options. Also made from Tyvek and 100% recyclable, the design of the wallet is different, and they have some eye-popping colors and up-and-coming guest artists from around the world to create some of their graphics. Remember that the Tyvek material is tear-resistant, has some elastic properties (to expand for all the credit card holders), and is water resistant. These wallets are also affordable (ranging from $9.99-$19.99) so if you want to switch designs, it leaves you with some cash to still put IN your wallet. The other cool thing that paperwallet does is that if you send in your old paperwallet to recycle, they will give you a 15% discount on your next one.
To help kick off this company, the good people at paperwallet have offered to give away wallets to 5 of our followers! All you have to do is visit their site www.paperwallet.com, pick out your favorite color or design, and leave your answer in a comment. Don’t forget to enter a valid email address because that’s how we’ll contact you. We will announce the winners in the comment section below once the giveaway ends. Good luck to you all! Contest is now over!
Giveaway ends September 30 @ 11:59 PST. Rules are subject to change without any prior notice. Contest is open to US and Canada residents only.
