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.

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.
