Helping Men Survive the 4th Week of October
Found by The Dignified Devil
Every week here at The Dignified Devil, we spend a lot of time thinking about how we can help the modern man survive the modern world. This week of course is no different. Today we explore the apps, the tools, the gadgets and the books that will enlighten the modern man as he navigates his way through his week. These are the things that are worth a man’s time, money, attention and space in his Junk Drawer.

What expression of man’s independence and creativity exceeds that of the campfire? It’s a trick question, there isn’t one. Now, what kind of a man doesn’t want to smell like a campfire? No man we want to know. The fine folks at Campfire Cologne have identified a glaring absence in the today’s fragrance market. They boxed a campfire and made it (mostly) safe for home consumption. You simply remove the kindling from the box, add fire, and bathe in the manly aroma. Finally, man is equipped to battle the soap and flower invasion and restore the primacy of wood and fire and smoke.

Here at the DD we love men who celebrate the things they love. And it just so happens that a guy named Matt Stevens, living in Charlotte, North Carolina, loves the Nike Air Max 100. He loves this shoe so much he created a book collecting 100 inspired interpretations of the greatest sneaker of all time; you guess it, the Nike Air Max 100. Support this man, we need more like him!
The remarkable success of Beats Audio in redefining the headphone as a luxury fashion accessory (and convincing millions to spend hundreds for them) has fundamentally changed the landscape of portable audio. While the pretenders line up to slice some market share, Beats Audio is busy innovating the sleek design and celebrity appeal behind their popular headphone into home and other portable devices. Enter the Pill, a powerful, compact speaker for pounding out the heavy bass of the latest hit music and a portable system for taking calls. The Pill is a completely wireless, highly portable update to the boom boxes of yesteryear.
The Gadget + App
The greatest innovations often seem so simple we lose sense of their brilliance. Humans have been using keys in various forms for over 4,000 years. Many innovations have made locking technology more secure (and complicated) but few have simultaneously enhanced their simplicity. A group of true dignitaries at Lockitron have brought advanced technology to the most basic of personal security devices, the home lock. The Lockitron uses wireless technology to allow your cell phone to take full control of your basic home security. It allows you to unlock and lock your home from anywhere in the world in ways you have to see to fully appreciate. Watch the video and marvel at the simplicity of true genius.
