You wouldn't think something classifiable as "wearable storage" would look so darn dapper, but here we are, staring at just about the finest cufflinks we ever did see. Not only are these handmade shirt cuffs beautiful in the most steampunk of ways, they're also pretty useful as each features an 8GB...

When it comes to clinging to one's uniqueness, I'm reminded of that classic line from Monty Python's Life of Brian in which huge crowd shouts in unison "We are all different!" and a tiny voice follows that up with "I'm not... ."

Blizzard really does seem to have finally realized that can give us a few more decent ways to save space without breaking anything or trivializing the game.

Let's indulge in a little thought experiment. Let's say that your favorite MMO has enabled the salvage of an entirely unique, singularly powerful weapon/item.
