Porsche-911-Turbo-S-Gear-Patrol Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S
Though our hearts are loyal to naturally aspirated 911s like the awesome GT3, the Turbo is mighty in its own right. The all-new 991-based 911 Turbo and Turbo S are cause for celebration, especially in honor of the 40th anniversary of the inception of the 911 Turbo. Twin turbos drive the potent flat-six engine in both cars, and the S hits 60 in 2.9 seconds. Auf Wiedersehen, baby. $148,300+

DIY-Pelican-Watch-Case-Gear-Patrol DIY Pelican Watchcase
Some intuitive watch geek out there figured out that the Pelican 1470 laptop case works great as a watch case, too. You can always buy your own case and adjust it for your collection — or you can let Martin Lim, an enterprising graphic designer and apparently a real go-getter, build one with pro-grade foam for you. Either option is a relatively cheap way to tote your wrist candy. $260
Acer-Iconia-A1-Tablet Acer Iconia A1 Android Tablet
Acer’s new tablet is designed to go head to head with Google’s popular but aging Nexus 7 and Apple’s iPad mini. The price is right at $199, especially when you consider its mini-matching 7.9-inch, 1,024 x 768 display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, the option for 3G, a microSD slot and Micro-USB and HDMI ports. Then again, we’re sure new versions of the competition are right around the corner. $199
