Opening Day-Day

Atlanta_Braves_Watches
At around 10:15 am, Pacific Standard Time, Francisco Liriano, left-handed starting pitcher designated as Opening Day Starter by his ballclub, the Pittsburgh Pirates, painted the outside corner against right-handed Cubs’ centerfielder, Emilio Bonafacio, and with that 91 mile-an-hour fastball, the 2014 MLB Season was officially underway, because today is...

Farewell Ayo: you’ve been the best Office Running Back (ever)

Ayo Oluwole
Pretty exciting (for him) and sad (for us) news about Ayo. He’s moved to L.A. and will be starting at a new, awesome company called Stack Social. Ayo and I went to Columbia together. We became close during our sophomore year when we took Conceptual Physics together (WE ALSO LIVED...

Same Faces, New Places… & New MLB Watch Faces

MLB-watch
When St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder Curt Flood tore down the flood gates of MLB Free Agency (#seewhatididthere) in 1969, by challenging what was then known as the “reserve clause,”* no one could have predicted Clayton Kershaw signing a contract with an average annual salary over $30 million, or Robinson...

Ticker Metrics – A Baseball Fan’s Key Stat

Ticker-Metrics
Opening Day is just a week away (the real Opening Day, that is, in America, not in Australia, at a decent hour, sans jet-lagged players), and that means so many things: Pennant Chases, hot starts, no names becoming Names, Mike Trout doing everything, Miguel Cabrera hitting everything, Yu Darvish...

It’s March MODness 2014!

March-MODness
So, Dayton really blew up that whole billion dollar dream, didn’t they? If it’s any consolation, no one has ever filled out a perfect bracket, at least in any recorded instance*. Need more consolation? We do. (A billion dollars is a lot, at least to us, if not to...

Attack of the Wablets!

Oh no. See that there? In the distance? It’s coming. And it’s terrifying, but in a We’re All About To Be Robots kind of way, not in an LA News Anchor During a 4.4 Earthquake kind of way. The approaching object is what tech blogs are affectionately calling a...

Spring might be two weeks away, officially, but that won’t stop us from celebrating the warm weather like we’ve never heard “I Got You Babe.” while stuck in a Punxsutawney Bed & Breakfast. Maybe it’s this weird warm weather and sunshine that’s so delightfully been gracing San Francisco with...

A Mod for All Seasons – the St. Patty’s Day Mod

st-pattys-day
Hate getting pinched? We hope so. It hurts. Hate getting pinched AND enjoy St. Patrick’s Day? Congratulations, you’re like 99 percent of the Snake Ridding Celebrators. But you also have a problem: Green isn’t the easiest color to work into your outfit. It’s loud. It’s specific. It’s not blue....

Sport Watches (nee “Mini”) rule the roost

Classic-and-Sport
Who doesn’t like to be called “Sport”? It’s like being referred to as “chap” but more American. More apple pie than chicken tikka masala (England’s national dish). Anyway, on November 11 2012 we launched “Modify 2.0″. Aside from making the watches water-resistant, scratch-resistant and lower profile, we also decided...
