U-Lock Wrench

Simple and effective. This is what good design is all about. “This astoundingly innovative #15 wrench fits perfectly on end of any Kryptonite Evolution (orange) or Series 2 (gray) U-Lock. With the leverage of the “U” removing a wheel has just become impossibly easy.  No extra tools needed to change a flat on the fly.” $29.99 from missionbicycle.com

What an amazing design concept. The video is a little cheesy (not sure who would take this to the game) but a great idea non the less. You get a “Waterproof rain jacket, sleeping bag and tent” all in one for $249. See more (plus the video) at jakpak.com

Adobe Raw – DNG Converter

What is a DNG converter. For any of you photographers out there that shoot raw, Adobe had put out a universal raw format called DNG (Digital Negative). The Adobe DNG Converter, a free utility that converts files from more than 300 cameras to DNG, enables you to easily convert camera-specific raw files to a more universal DNG raw file. So why would I use this you might ask yourself. Well, this has become a little work around in the time being for me while my new camera is not supported by my old Adobe Camera Raw software. The converter is super easy to use and I have no problem opening the DNG files. The only issue I have had so far is ACR writing xml files for the DNG’s (I probably have to play with it a little more). Get the converter FREE at adobe.com
