Meet The World's Best-Selling Smart Wallet

The Ekster wallet has the coolest features you'll ever see in a wallet.

My girlfriend was so excited about her gift to me that I had to control every muscle in my face when I opened the sleek black packaging to reveal... a wallet?? It was nice, but she had been talking this up for weeks like it was a golden doodle puppy.

I already had a perfectly good wallet, or so I thought. To me, a wallet served one purpose - to hold my cards and cash. But she was so pumped, she told me this was like leveling up in adulthood.

I mean, there was no denying the quality of the wallet. It's made from the finest hand-crafted sustainable leathers available, and it feels like it. But to be honest, my first impression was that the wallet looked small and wouldn't be able to hold all my stuff.

Turns out, you can hold 7 cards in it and use the strap for any cash. And, let's face it, when do you ever need more than 3-4 cards? Good riddance to that awful student ID from 5 years ago. Starting at 0.15 inches (0.38cm), this is officially the slimmest smart wallet on the market. Those Apple MacBook Air commercials had left an impression on me - I soon realized how unnecessarily chunky my old wallet was. Slim is in.

The slick aesthetics aren't even the coolest part.

With one click of the trigger, all your cards pop up for easy access, and you instantly know how James Bond feels. I remember the first time I used this feature in front of my friends; they were so impressed and made me let them take turns clicking the trigger (the bartender was not impressed).

But the main reason my girlfriend got this wallet for me was because of the tracker card feature. I'm always misplacing my stuff around the house, and my wallet has turned up in some bizarre places, like under my bed, behind the microwave, or once under the bathroom sink (how?!?).

As you can imagine, I've practically destroyed my house looking for my wallet before, but never again. Ekster wallets have a solar-powered tracker card that only needs 3 hours of sunlight to last for 2 months, and allows you to ring your phone or wallet when you lose it. You can even track it on a map!

I wasn't exaggerating when I said these wallets make you feel like Bond. Ekster wallets even protect your cards from electronic theft with the built-in RFID-protection. This stops electronic pick-pockets swiping data off your cards and stealing from your bank account. Nice try, thieves!

We've been having a lot of fun with the selfie mode you can use with the tracker card - I have a feeling this is the real reason she got me this wallet, but I'm not mad. We've been taking a lot of funny selfies and my Instagram game is fire right now.

My girlfriend has also been eyeing my wallet, and commented a few times on how practical it is to use. So I decided to order one for her, too. Never thought we'd be that matching couple, but it's just too good, plus I got hers in a trendy light beige color.

If you thought this wallet couldn't get any smarter, you can even connect your wallet to your Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa,or Siri, and make your wallet voice-activated, so you can find it totally hands-free. I've had too much fun playing pranks on my family by asking my Alexa to call my wallet and enjoying their reaction.

With all these cool features, It's no wonder Ekster is the best selling smart wallet in the world. It's super affordable, too, starting at just $69. Why have a regular wallet when you can have a wallet fit for an international spy?!

Is Carole Baskin Inheriting a Haunted "Indian" Burial Ground with Tiger King Zoo?

Current owner Jeff Lowe claims there are bodies, including "a young American Indian boy," buried on the property

It was recently reported that Carole Baskin had been awarded the property of the Tiger King Zoo—formerly the G.W. Zoo—in Wynnewood, Oklahoma after a judgment found in her favor.

As fans of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King will know, her long-standing legal feud with Joe Exotic (AKA Joseph Maldonado-Passage, né Shreibvogel) over his violation of the Big Cat Rescue trademark resulted in a million dollar settlement in her favor. But for the most part Exotic managed to dodge paying Baskin through a series of illegal property transfers that temporarily protected his animal park from seizure.

Now that Exotic is in prison for attempting to have Baskin murdered—along with illegal animal trafficking and several violations of the Endangered Species Act—a judge has finally ruled that the park is hers, and she will be taking over ownership of the 16-acre property later this year. But Jeff Lowe—the park's current owner and the personification of a mid-life crisis—insists that there are no hard feelings, saying, "She deserves this property."
