Have you ever used a mason jar as a drinking mug or seen anyone use one? Mason jars are commonly used for canning, however nowadays, you can buy them in stores and they actually have handles attached so you can used them as mugs. The problem with mason jars as a mug is that if you tip too much you will spill all over the place! The creators of the CUPPOW clearly wanted to resolve this issue and so they created this lid that looks like a disposable coffee cup lid which fits under the ring of a mason jar. What a great idea!
I checked out their website,,  and I noticed that it emphasizes hot drinks, specifically coffee which is suitable for heat resistant, inexpensive and reusable mason jars. Of course on a cold day, a cup of hot coffee would be great to heat up the hands, but how about those summer days? As in the photo above, you can add a couple of ice cubes to your drink and mix it up with the normal mason jar lid and then pop on your CUPPOW and presto! Or, you could mix up a protein shake with your hand blender in the mason jar, and be out the door in seconds, sipping your CUPPOW.

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
