The End Of Garden Gnomes – Skymall Is No More

The main distraction on long flights used to be Skymall. Skymall opened up a whole new world of the possible – from hot dog bun toasters to rare autographs, I used to flip through the magazine wishing that I was extremely wealthy so that I could buy the Family Ties chess set. As technology has changed, however, more people are surrounded by other electronic distractions and sadly, the need for Skymall became to shrink more and more. Unfortunately, Skymall announced today that they’re filing for bankruptcy.

In their honor, let’s recap a couple of awesome things that you never knew you needed.

Feeling too lazy to throw a ball to your dog? Thankfully, there’s iFetch, a clever tool that puts the control of throwing that ball in the hands of your dog. No more need to throw over and over, teach your dog to drop the ball in themselves so that you can get back to more important things in your life.
