  • Great American golf courses - Bandon Dunes, Oregon

    Posted by Matthew Wynn


    Bandon Dunes is true to the spirit of Scotland’s ancient links.  Here, players immerse themselves in the traditions of a timeless game and the grandeur of Oregon’s rugged coast. Sweeping, untamed shores stretch for miles. Primeval grassy dunes roll to the sea.  Four distinctly different courses have been conceived in harmony with the natural environment. They combine with all the essential elements to reveal a new golf experience every time you play. The soul of the game resides here. Players walk. And at the end of the day, gracious hospitality comforts each guest like a warm, friendly embrace. This is Bandon Dunes. This is golf as it was meant to be.

    While we're busy slogging away at MenScience creating even better men's skincare, grooming and nutritional products, we do realize that there is a whole world of men out there who are taking advantage of summer to travel and see the sites. Here's a list of some hot spas, grooming spots and vacation destinations that feature our products that you might want to add to your summer itinerary (or at least dream about adding).
    Enjoy a men's-only spa fit for royalty with flat-screen TVs, a lengthy list of massage services and ultra-lux relaxation lounge at SIR Spa in the metro Chicago area. www.sirspa.com.

    Miami is known for its tropical weather, hot bodies and risqué clothes (or lack of), but skip the full-body waxing and head to Churchill's Barber Shop for a men's grooming experience not to be missed. This classic barbershop offers a refined atmosphere with espresso bar and expert, no-nonsense Deluxe Shaves and Trims. www.churchillsbarbershop.com.

    Take a trip up north to beautiful Montreal to discover some of the finest men's grooming services at Adam Le Spa. Offering everything from Hot Stone massages to the Millionaire Pedicure, this hot spot is sure to have you exclaiming "Oh, Canada!" with admiration by the time you're through. www.adamlespa.com.

    Or head across the water to Spa NK in London for superb grooming services and face treatments in a relaxed, posh atmosphere. Hey, they don't call it Merry Olde England for nothing. www.spacenk.com.

  • Testing the Goods: Wacom's Bamboo Stylus Turns the iPad Into a SketchPad

    Posted by Matthew Wynn



    Wacom's Bamboo Stylus is the best tablet-focused stylus we've seen so far--but does the iPad benefit from having a stylus at all? 


    What's Good

    The stylus itself looks and feels great. It's a subtle but attractive pen-looking stylus, matte-finished black metal with silver accents, that's just the right size--not too thin, not too thick. It's also weighted properly, both in actual weight and in balance, so it doesn't feel like you're holding a hollow aluminum tube. The tip is most reminiscent of, well, a condom's reservoir tip, made of a slightly thicker, firmer, black rubber. It's a clever solution to the problem of friction--it comes pretty close to mimicking the feel of a pen on paper, despite it being a rubber pustule dragged along a glass surface.

    Functionality is great, too; you can use the stylus basically in place of your finger, which is a curious feeling the first time you try swiping between the iPad's homescreens or scrolling through emails, but works just as well.
