Increase your iPhone Storage

A couple of months ago we showed you the Olala iDisk storage solution.  Well, now they have another version available that is smaller.  We wanted to tell you about.  If you are not familiar with Olala and how they work, let me give you a quick run down.  As you know your iPhone only has so much storage and it get’s eaten up very quickly with pictures and apps.  Yes, you can use online storage, but there are a couple issues with online storage.  First, you must have some sort of internet access to use online storage.  Second, it can eat away...

Fizzics Beer System – The Way to Drink Beer

Okay, I have to admit that when Fizzics first reached out to us about this new beer system, I was intrigued, but not excited.  I am the type of guy who can drink beer from a can and am completely happy.  I am not one of these guys who cares what the beer looks like. I don’t care if it has a good head on it or any of the other important factors to people who are really into their beer.  I like the smell of beer, but not really into the aroma part of it and I don’t have...

The unit is pretty good...

Cabela’s 15″ Jerky Blaster

I have been getting into two things lately, smoking meat and dehydrating meat.  You can say I have discovered two new ways to enjoy delicious animals.  I have already posted about the dehydrator I have been using and also the seasoning I have been using.  We have received some emails back regarding what is a great jerky gun to use, so I figure I might as well post about one.  I can’t say I have tried a ton of guns or even two guns.  I have a Cabela’s by me, so I ended up driving over there and buying...

Hi Mountain Seasonings for Jerky

I know Tools in Action is geared towards a tool publication, but you know what sometimes we have to be out of the box.  I have really been into making jerky lately and have learned a lot about jerky from the Crew.  So I figured what better way to draw up more knowledge than talking jerky.  Seriously who doesn’t like jerky and dehydrating their own meats?  Also, I have had a lot of people ask about what seasoning I have been using.  So I just wanted to do a quick post about the seasoning I have been using and...
