Gear Guide #06

Price: On enquiry only

The slick sounding name of the bike and company should be reason enough for you to buy this bike. This bike is custom everything and they're built to order. With all the specs to match it's stealthy ninja/samurai inspired looks it is easily the best looking bike on the market. Like all things nice and custom though, price is on enquiry only, and unfortunately I don't have enough money to even bother enquiring.

MAKR iPhone 6 Plus Tan Leather Sleeve

Price: $115.00

This case probably won't save help protect against #bendgate but it will surely protect from scratches and maybe even drops. Nothing says class like quality hand made leather. The only downside to this sleeve is that you'll have to pull the phone out of the sleeve to view the screen. Seeing how compulsive phone usage is these days it'll probably be a good thing. 

Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman

Price: $4559.00

This is the classic and historic Eames Chair Lounge set designed and released in 1956 by Charles and Ray Eames. These chairs have a permanent display section in New York's Museum of Modern Art and will definitely impress anyone in the know. It may not however, impress your accountant, coming in at a cool $4.6k. Pretty sure however, that it'll depreciate a little better than the options at Ikea though.

Get Shit Done Mug

Price: $16

This mug is perfect (and relatively cheap) for procrastinators. Fill it with coffee and GET, SHIT DONE. 

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Price: $1000.00

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know that I'm pretty pro-Apple. Still though, credit must be given where it is due. Samsung was daring enough to pioneer the Phablet niche and it definitely paid off for them. I feel like the Note is a more refined Phablet experience when compared to the half-baked software offerings of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus. The 6 Plus actually feels like a bit of an afterthought from Apple, having the user experience of the huge size largely neglected in the design process. Maybe Phablets do benefit from having an internally stored Stylus. This will never happen with Apple's iPhone 6 Plus as their obsession with thinness will never allow for any Internal stylus storage.
