A power screwdriver corkscrew?

A screwdriver that is simultaneously a corkscrew, cordless and electric powered. Because what goes better with heavy drinking than power tools — perfectly natural bed buddies.

Not sure if $495 for a pair of computer speakers means that they’re Audiophile material, though? To be fair they do have a 1/8” source so they can be used with most high-end systems, […]
