On those extremely rare occasions when you're running late for a crucial appointment—you decided to sleep in, your mistress was being demanding, you had a last-minute Bloody Mary tasting—this Facebook app can help. It tracks you, Pac-Man-like, on a real-time map, and tells people exactly how much time before you arrive. Actually, nothing good can come from this—tell no one.

Mafia Coffee, Drinking in Color and the Future of Keys
The weekend has a feeling things are going to work out.
You quite understandably thought the drinking experience couldn't get any better. Well, you thought wrong. Introducing the light-up coaster, a magical instrument that is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. The battery lasts a mere 60 hours, so you might have to recharge midway through your next party.
We're not sure if James Bond has a keychain—presumably, those Aston Martins don't start themselves. But if he did, it would probably look like this sleek box, which holds up to six keys that glide out when you slide a button. If you need more than six keys, you're doing it wrong. (It being life.)
You've long considered your music collection something of a secret weapon—made for saving parties, enticing young ingenues to generously shake their hips and pumping you up for the occasional beach volleyball game (thank you, Kenny Loggins). But like any good weapon, it deserves protection—perhaps from a dock made from WWII-era ammo cases. One warning: you might not want to take it through security.
If GoodFellas left you with one thought, it was probably this: "Man, I bet Ray Liotta's character makes one hell of a cup of coffee." Okay, maybe not, but Henry Hill has gone ahead and done it anyway. In fairness, the guy does know his way around good stimulants.
