You saw the Swisscard in last years list, and it isn't getting any worse. This is the single greatest thing any man could carry in his wallet after his favorite credit card. Open letters, unscrew screws, cut ropes, clip away hang nails, tweeze hairs, it even has a ball point pen. Both me and my father have carried one of these around for about ten years, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
What the hell is it? Well it is an ingenious work-out device disguised as a toy. Once you get it going, you will feel the burn! Great for dads who like to work out, or work with their hands. I can speak from personal experience that these little toys are the talk of the town. My family has always had some plastic ones milling around, but last year I got my father the metal one… Life changer.
Is your father a little fashion backwards? Lend him a hand! Is he fashion forward? A boost couldn't hurt. There are plenty of ways to go, the classic father's day tie works… But you could get fancy with some other fun accessories like socks and cufflinks.
If you recently won the lottery and have some money to throw around consider a nice recreational table to spice up the man cave. Dads are all different, some like ping pong, some like poker, some like to chill in the garage, and some in the basement. If you have $500+ dollars to throw around, help dad get some gaming done.
Magazines are often overlooked, but they shouldn't be. A magazine is a gift that keeps on giving. There is a magazine for pretty much every interest and hobby out there, and I bet you could think of one your father would appreciate.
Here is the classic bow tie knot. About time I get into bow ties am I right? I am actually pretty new to bow ties myself, but you can be sure i'll go on the hunt for interesting knots and present them all as they come. For the time being enjoy the classic. Make sure to visit the knot hub for more knots!
Bow ties can be worn anytime a tie can be worn. They are not more or less formal than a tie, although the level of difficulty is higher. Also, bow ties make you seem more friendly and approachable. Try it out, I bet people will act differently around you. As always share your thoughts with me! This bow tie is from Knot Theory, true innovators in men's fashion, make sure to check them out.

It is official, I invented my own knot. I call this the Krasny Hourglass, because it looks like an hourglass and my name is Krasny. The knot is actually a Four in Hand knot with an additional knot tied using the little end below the primary knot. The result is two knots facing each other, or a long hourglass shaped knot. There might be an issue running out of fabric on the little end to fit into the loop if you are a taller person. A tie clip, suite or vest can be used to secure the tie. Looks awesome with any tie design including stripes. Tell me what you think! If you want to learn other knots, I got them.

DRM stands for Digital Right Management. It's something game developers care a lot about as it pretty much means "what we are doing to fight piracy." Usually DRM gets really bad publicity on techie news sites. Generally DRM hurts paying customers as much as it hurts pirates. Sometimes it hurts paying customers more, (i.e. Assassin's Creed 2, SimCity, and Diablo 3). However I recently found out DRM can be done right.

This is the floating spiral invented by Eric Glennie. Being a Glennie knot, it has a specific opening set of moves which you will remember from the Glennie Double. It is pretty easy to tie once you get the hang of it and gives your ties a very tasteful round, tubular look. No dimples here! This knot is perfect with all kinds of ties, but something magical can happen with stripes. Perosnally I am a huge fan, it looks unique and fresh while still being crisp and intentional. I hope you enjoy it as well, tell me what you think. Want to see more knots, look no further!

Destructoid reports that Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson is pushing for stronger single player "story mode" in Capcom's fighting games.
The strategic marketing group here has for quite a while been pushing for our fighting franchises to have more and better single player content, of which full fledged story modes are one component. How and when those requirements manifest in our future roadmap, I'm not prepared to speak about at this time.
