Today marks fifteen years since the first iPhone went on sale. Steve Jobs originally announced the concept of the new iPhone on January 9, 2007, where he confirmed Apple was going to “reinvent the phone” and release a device that was a combination iPod, phone and “internet mobile communicator.” On June 29, 2007, the first iPhone was released to the public. 74 days later, Apple announced it had sold over one million iPhones. By 2021, the company had sold over 2.2 billion iPhones. Today, the company has released 34 different iPhone models and recently announced plans to expand its lineup and add a suite of new features to the next release. Rumors about the iPhone 14 continue to swell, but it’s sure to be followed by a dozen other models over the next decade.

The Arcwave VOY male stroker is unlike any stroker device that penis owners have seen or used before. Arcwave says the world's first CleanTech silicone stroker is compact and ergonomically sculpted to fit in the palm of the hand for natural, simple operation. Plus, the VOY’s pièce de résistance is its Tightness Adjustment System, or TAS, which is activated by rotating an adjustment wheel to increase or decrease tightness, therefore offering a perfect fit every time. Merkel-Ranvier receptors in penis skin are particularly sensitive to pressure, one element “other sex toy brands often ignore,” according to Arcwave. And by targeting these receptors with TAS, Arcwave has developed a precision tool you... won't want to put down.


Make The World Your Oyster

Oris’s New York Harbor Limited Edition watch combines unique materials to expand on its environmental partnerships. Its dial is carefully set with a swatch of mother-of-pearl overlaid upon a pigmented background to create a slightly iridescent, pastel green face. It also features 300 meters of water resistance, and a double-domed sapphire keeps the mother-of-pearl from getting wet. Oris hopes to use the watch to increase awareness around the Billion Oyster Project, which has seeded 14.5 acres of the New York Harbor with juvenile oysters. For each $2,700 watch sold, a portion of the sale will go to benefit the project.

The Halfbike 3 is a new foldable bike that allows users to stand while pedaling. It relies on a tricycle-like design (one large front tire positioned in front of two smaller rear tires) to ensure stability, and comes with four gears. The bike weighs in at 21 pounds, making it notably lighter than standard 30 - 40 pound folding bikes. The bikes are handmade in the EU, available in seven different colors, and cost about $900 - $950 (depending on your preferred color way).

Avocado was initially built around creating organic, non-toxic “green” mattresses. Now, it’s expanded its lineup to include a new Zero Waste Furniture Collection. Truly 100-percent zero waste, this furniture is handcrafted exclusively with upcycled, solid beechwood remnants from the company’s Los Angeles woodshop. The collection includes everything from an elegant coffee table to a chic slatted bench and is helping the company work toward its goal of becoming the first mattress company to achieve Zero Waste to Landfill Certification.
