• Invisibly Waterproof Your iPhone

    Last week, while covering an unrelated event in Park City, Utah, we stumbled upon a demonstration by a couple of guys from the company Liquipel, who we'd been hearing about for a few days and had been attempting to book for "This Could Be Big" since first seeing their video of an apparently waterproofed iPhone.

    The video, and the subsequent coverage of it on the Internet, had boosted Liquipel's visibility through the roof, but skeptic we remained... until the guys started dunking their specially treated iPhone into a tank of water, in front of our very eyes. Incredulous, we poked, we prodded, and examined the surface of the phone, and everything remained in working order despite repeated exposure to water. Their explanations were somewhat vague, but the results seemed to be there.

    Every man fantasizes about filling their basement with the most high tech gadgets, so while we were at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas we decided to take advantage of the endless supply of cutting edge technology and outfit the perfect man cave.

    With money as no object, we let loose on the Las Vegas convention center floor, picking out the best television, refrigerator, speaker system, and anything else we might want for the perfect entertainment room.

    What we found were speakers as tall as a basketball rim, a television as thin as a stack of credit cards, a refrigerator that can cool your beer in less than 10 minutes and the most luxurious massage chair on that market, that's so comfortable that you'll want to marry it after only a few minutes
