ZIIIRO Watches display time in a simple and unique way: the inner swirl's tip represents the current hour, while the outer swirl displays the minutes. On the ZIIIRO Mercury and ZIIIRO Gravity watches, a gradient movement shows the passing of time.

It’s a job that pays handsomely…mostly because few job candidates, even experienced IT professionals, have the skills to scamper over firewalls and infiltrate the deepest recesses of a battle-tested network. But […]

The Blumoo Universal Remote, now just $52.99 in the Boing Boing Store, harnesses the audio power of all your household equipment right […]
You may not love Microsoft Word, but you’ve definitely used it. Other than being one of the most ubiquitous programs on the planet, it’s been the go-to word processing system for more than a quarter-century because it’s as basic as it gets.
