For local product developer Rob Jordan, Monday was a disappointing day. Two products from his Fortis Design company were supposed to be featured on a "Today Show" segment on unique Father's Day gifts. But Evette Rios, who was the guest on the segment simply ran out of time to get to them.
The two products to be featured were the designer duct tape that I mentioned on this blog a few months ago
and a magnetic wristband marketed under the name Magwear. It is used for holding things like screws and nails while working on a project and would be a great gift for a handy dad. Rios did try to make it up to Jordan, giving his items prominent mention on her latest Rachael Ray blog post. Locally, you can find Magwear at NOFO in Raleigh's Five Points.
