Lightsaber Replacement Keys: No Need to Use the Forced Entry

Lightsaber Replacement Keys: No Need to Use the Forced Entry


Despite what you think of the Star Wars prequels, or even the original films, lightsabers will always be awesome. And despite there being everything from lightsaber bbq tongs to glowing knitting needles already out there, how could you not welcome these lightsaber-themed replacement keys with open arms?


A pack of two lightsaber keys is 10 bucks, so you'll want to make sure you're using a locksmith who won't screw them up when cutting. And you'll need to specify the type of key being duped when ordering, otherwise you won't be opening anything unless you've got the Force. [Rockin' Keys via This Is Why I'm Broke via OhGizmo!]

7 Affordable Resources for Self-Employed Workers

Homeoffice

Today's career landscape is bizarre by Boomer standards: 23-year-olds are CEOs, working parents are running businesses out of their living rooms and work-from-home opportunities abound in almost every industry


Given these recent trends in the career industry, it's unsurprising that more and more employees are considering becoming their own boss — and many get the opportunity to do so. The "virtualization" of jobs, the influx of startup culture and the rise of the gig economy are all contributing factors to increasing opportunities for self-employed workers

NFL Admits Mistake in Penalizing Muslim Player Who Prayed After Touchdown

Abdullah

A short slide followed by a brief moment on his hands and knees resulted in an excessive celebration penalty on Kansas City Chiefs defensive player Husain Abdullah during Monday night's game against the New England Patriots


It has also ignited fierce criticism from those who see the penalty as a double standard, and the NFL has since backtracked on flagging the Chiefs safety.



Abdullah, a devout Muslim, intercepted Tom Brady during the fourth quarter of last night's blowout, running the turnover back for a touchdown. After several steps into the end zone, Abdullah slid to his knees and bent to put his hands on the ground in a prayer pose. Read more...

Live Updates: Secret Service Director Gets Grilled by Congress

Julia-pierson-secret-service

First came the Salahis. Then there were the Cartagena prostitutes. Now a White House intruder managed to run in the front door, carrying a serrated knife, before he was tackled by scrambling Secret Service agents.


After a few high-profile mishaps, members of Congress want to know what, exactly, is going on at the Secret Service.


Now, its director, Julia Pierson, who also happens to be the first woman to hold that post, heads to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Tuesday morning for what's expected to be a blistering hearing.

These Popular Bluetooth Speakers Are Only $30 Each Today

These Popular Bluetooth Speakers Are Only $30 Each Today


Whether you're taking them to the beach, a tailgate, or just using them to boost your iPad's volume in the kitchen, Bluetooth speakers are incredibly handy, and we've found a couple of highly-rated models for just $30 each today.


Over on Amazon, Creative Airwave's portable speaker is only $30, today only. That's well below the speaker's normal $40+ range, and a great bargain for what you get. The speaker has an integrated 12 hour battery, NFC for easy pairing with Android devices, and a microphone for placing voice calls.


Head over to Staples, and you'll find the extremely popular Jabra Solemate Mini is also $30 after promo code 86128. The catch is that you'll need a filler item to reach the $40 minimum (this $1 Galaxy S4 case should work), so really you'll be spending $31. The Solemate normally goes for $60 or more around the web, and though it lacks NFC and its battery only lasts 8 hours, reviews indicate that its sound quality is superior to the Creative Airwave's.


Honestly, you can't go wrong either way; just be sure to grab one of these before they sell out.
