Little Clock Shop Giant Flip Clock Hands-On

Clocks never interest me unlike watches. Maybe it was because that up until now, the clocks I've come to know were so plain and boring that I've always looked for an alternative route like putting my huge 27-inch display to good use for displaying digital time in a flip clock fashion. Like many others, I caught the popular flip clock fever. There's something unique and intriguing about the way a flip clock looks and works. Thankfully, I can now let go of my virtual XouClock flip clock screen saver, iPhone and iPad apps for the real thing. 

This is the Giant Flip Clock from the people over at the Little Clock Shop. That's the place where you can get clocks that are anything but your run-of-the-mill, plain Jane clocks most of us have in our homes and offices. If you're a flip clock fan or just someone who wants to add a sweet gadget to their desk, this is the one-of-a-kind clock to get.

Out of the box, the Giant Flip Clock is ready to flip thru time and look ridiculously awesome on your desk. What if you don't have any room left in your workspace? Well you can always mount the Giant Flip Clock on your wall using one of the two mounting brackets around the back polished metal frame that houses the clock mechanism gears. Before you can brag to your friends, you'll need to set up the time which turned out to be a tedious process depending on the current time and the time that has been set on the Giant Flip Clock you just took out of the box.

Flipside 2X Wallet Hands-On

Over the years I've used countless wallets, leather and plastic alike and while most of the leather wallets I used held up well, the plastic ones lasted only a few months. The biggest problem with ordinary wallets is that they just take up to much space and become bulky. The Flipside 2X wallet seems to come from an entirely different species of wallets you don't see every day, and it also stands out to the geek inside us.

The Flipside 2X wallet flips and opens up to the full extent so that it's very comfortable to reach all your cards and insert/take out the ones you need quickly and with ease. A notable feature that the Flipeside 2X has is an RFID blocking shield that keeps your information safe if your cards have smart chips inside of them. Not only will your information be safe and secure, the Flipside 2X's tough construction insures that your cards will never get bent where as using a normal wallet does sometimes bend up plastic cards. We really love the compact design that the Flipside 2X wallet has to offer, and the fact that it allows you to carry you most used cards with you at all times without using up unnecessary space. Normal wallets are too bulky and have a lot of padding that is wasting a lot of space while the Flipside 2X wallet perfectly fits cards and bills and matches their size.
