Hey! Have you heard of OpenSky yet? If not, listen up, because it’s pretty freakin’ cool. OpenSky.com is a socially-driven online marketplace that allows shoppers to browse based on the selections of their favorite celebrities and influencers. Personalities like Bobby Flay and Serena Williams, dubbed “insiders”, host a distinct page on the site, where they share and endorse a list of products that they’ve picked out themselves. It’s a fun and simple way for consumers to interact with the tastemakers they admire, and we’re proud to announce that a number of Quirky products have been featured by OpenSky insiders! While these products are also available on the Quirky Shop, OpenSky shipping is free for the rest of the day, and you’ll have the opportunity to earn special points on the site as well, so take a look at a few of our high-profile fans below.
If the only thing we knew about Shaq was that he made the movie Kazaam!, that’d be enough for us. The four-time NBA champ has a passion for electronics and cord management, so it’s no surprise that Contort, Cordies, Converge and Pivot Power all made his list. Here’s what he had to say about fan-favorite Cordies:
“You might’ve heard, but me and cables don’t mix. I don’t like seeing tons of power cords zigzagging across my desk. But what’s worse than cords all over my desk is not being able to get to my cord because it slipped off and fell behind the desk. So for all my cords that don’t fit in my docking station, I use the Cordies on ‘em. You slip your cords through the loops to keep everything organized and that way you don’t have to reach under the desk ’cause your laptop charger rolled off the desk…again.”
How cool is that?

Amid other awesome products like the Jawbone Jambox, Aaron has added three of Quirky’s iPhone 5 cases to his list: Luminum, Folio, and Keeper. Good look, Aaron.
