Are you a lonely car lover in the pedestrian-clogged streets of New York? Well, this weekend, automobiles rule the city. It’s the New York International Auto Show, and the Javits Center will be packed with some of the newest, most innovative and most exciting cars on the market.
There are also more than fifteen cars being unveiled for the first time, and many more will be making their New York debuts, including the new Rolls-Royse Ghost II and a new Mercedes Benz. The show will also include several historical cars, including one owned by FDR and one owned by Nelson Rockefeller. You can check out the full roster of cars on display here.
It’s Friday night and you find yourself facing the same problem you face every weekend—where shall you go for dinner and drinks? Everyone has suggestions, but no one make a decision. What you need is a third-party decision maker that guarantees an exciting night. Dyce can help you!
Dyce is a smartphone app that randomizes the process of selecting a restaurant or bar. It works like this: Dyce finds six of the best bars or restaurants close to your location, and with a random roll of the “Dyce” it decides where you and your friends should go. In order to make these choices, Dyce utilizes a dynamic selection algorithm that uses Foursquare ratings to find six of the best restaurants or bars in your area. It then filters these to select the range you want to search in (i.e. 1 mile, 5 miles), but it doesn’t stop there. Dyce also filters the results based on the type of restaurant or bar you and your friends are in the mood for (i.e. Dive Bars, Lounges, Cocktail Bars, Sports Bars etc.), and provides you with instant directions on how to get there using Google Maps and Apple Maps.

Even before the dawn of James Bond, Cufflinks have been the staple of the sharp dressed man. Considered to be one of the few pieces of “Men’s jewelry," the cufflink adds a debonair touch to an otherwise blasé formal shirt. Novelty cufflinks have been popularized over the last few decades, with men choosing from a variety of options to represent everything from their birthstones and favorite sports teams to their hobbies and occupations.
But recently, a new trend has emerged on the cufflink market: Functional Cufflinks. Functional cufflinks are fun, useful cufflinks that can fill everyday purposes, or just keep you discreetly occupied in board meetings. Here are the top ten functional cufflinks that will set you apart from your jeans without setting you apart from fun:
No one likes getting their apartment painted; it’s a chore, and a tedious one at that. You have to move all your furniture, hire workers you barely know and spend endless time picking out paint that never quite looks right in the end. Better to just cover up the nicks in your paint with your old college Pink Floyd posters.
But that was before the world as you know it changed and Paintzen swooped in to save the day. A service designed to make the process of adding a fresh coat of paint to your walls as quick and simple as possible, Paintzen is a one-stop shop for your painting needs. And the results are impressive.

Finally, a site that is giving YouTube some competition! Say hello to VUBE.com, a new social video site that was created in January 2013 and allows users to post videos in a way that promotes more individualized control over how their content is viewed and received by the world. Unlike YouTube, VUBE presents user content to the world on a massive advertising platform, and in turn, collects user engagement data for the video during an initial test. How each video performs during its test will assign it values in its promotional system, as well as contribute to indexing on VUBE. This is basically an automated crowdsourcing mechanism that tries to make a video go viral, knowing instantly whether the video is gaining traction or not, and then begins to deal with the video accordingly, using the metrics collected.
