In August of 2012, a project on Kickstarter caught my eye, it was a super minimalist, cost effective wallet aptly named The Dollar Wallet made by The Simple Factory. I had the option of ordering the actual $1 wallet which is made of a fiberboard, or for a couple bucks more I could get a laser etched wooden version. I …

The iPhone 5/5s is a nice phone, but it is quite delicate, ask anyone who has dropped their phone once or twice without a case on. When I sold my iPhone 5 the bezel was torn up and dented. I  only took it out of its case for a couple weeks, and never dropped the phone. I have since learned …
