IWC Big Ingenieur Chronograph

I have a confession to make… I have never owned a Swiss watch.  I know what you’re thinking, how can I run a website about wealth when I myself have never owned the basic possession of the wealthy?  Well first, stop being such a snob.  Second, I can’t help it, I have never been able to legitimize that price for something I treat so poorly.  A Swiss watch for me would be like me owning a Ferrari and living in Alaska; it just doesn’t make any sense.

The Tag Heuer Link Smartphone

I was sitting in meeting with a client, doing my best to pay attention, when something caught my eye.  A business associate was wearing a hideous bright yellow watch.  The thing looked like something you would give a special needs child.  After the meeting I had to say something about the eyesore that was so ugly it distracted me from a multi-million dollar meeting, so I asked what it was.  “It’s a Tag Heuer” he responded.  He told me his wife picked it out, which stands to reason since she is a vulgar piece of work herself.

LeCie Porsche Hard Drive – Sexy, but not the fastest

I was about 11 or 12 when I first became aware of the Porsche.  Growing up in Orange County I had always seen them around, but I never looked at them as anything exceptional.  But it was when the fuss was made about Joel’s Porsche, you know, the one that out drove Guido the Killer Pimp, that I started to understand.  For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, it was the movie Risky Business that first introduced me to the brand of Porsche.

Case-Mate Titanium iPhone 4 Case

I love my iPhone.  The only thing that comes close to how much I love my iPhone is how much I love my iPad.  But they are like children, you cannot love one more than the other.  So of course I’m always looking for the best, most stylish way, to protect my iPhone.  Since the inception of the iPhone, I go through an average of 2 cases per phone, and in the end spend as much (sometimes more) than the phone itself cost.  Case-Mate has just released a case that may make you do the same.

Archipod Adds an Office to Your Backyard

The benefits of not having to go to an office everyday are too many to list.  On the rare instance I find myself sitting in traffic during a rush hour, I reflect how lucky I am to not have that as part of my daily existence.  And what office would let you work in your PJ’s?

But I admit that there are drawbacks to working from home.  First, there are too many days when I don’t even step outside.  You have to will yourself to get some sunshine and exercise, or you begin to get unhealthy. Continue reading
