introducing the iStation




OK, it's not really called the iStation, and it isn't really on the market just yet. But it is some seriously cool concept design. I just wish the big monitor could swivel a 180 and be used for the desk computer as well. While we're at it lets add a subwoofer under the bed hump.

turn your iPhone into a pc?


If you have an iPhone you can soon run PC emulator software, can't wait to not use MS WORD with that hard to use iPhone keyboard. But the real internet with Internet Explorer would be nice for watching your netflix.com streaming movies as you wait for your next delayed flight.

Friday

is it illegal to use my mobile phone?

If you are going to drive cross country or in another country you might want to know if you will get a ticket for being on your mobile phone.  This nice website breaks it down for us.  For example, in Californina, beginning July 1, 2008, violators face a US$20 fine for a first offense and a US$50 ticket for subsequent infractions. Law passed Sept 2007 bans all under-18s from using a phone at all, even with handsfree kit.  To check the rules for your state or country go here.

If your looking for a bluetooth hands free device, this one claims to be the smallest.  In fact it's so small people will think you are psychotic when they see you talking to invisible peeps.  But it's only about $20 with free shipping.

hamburger phone adds cheese



Yes, now you can be as cool as JUNO and talk on your own hamburger phone. I argued that it might be a Cheeseburger phone, but when you open the phone, there is a logo right next to the cheese that says "Hamburger Phone". To me, that just makes it a little cheesier. $15

lets get free music


NIN's has been doing some great stuff as of late. Their previous release included original sound files that could be used to make your own remixes in programs such as Ableton LIVE, or GARAGE BAND. The result was lots of great (and not so great) remixes that were posted to their site. But you can literally peel away each track - vocals, drums, bass, etc. NIN even offers the remix files for free online.
And now NIN is breaking the norm again, this new album, GHOSTS I-IV features instrumental tracks and the first 9 tracks are free, if you would like all 36 tracks it's only $5.00. www.nin.com

here come curved computer monitors


While the curved Apple iMac above is conceptual and does not exist yet...

Dell and Alienware got together and made this 3 foot wide curved computer screen display, especially good for immersive gameplay.  They just showed it off at CES08, it should be on the market soon but they have yet to announce a price.

Nanosaur egg chair


This thing is straight out of Mork and Mindy. The seats are adjustable, and the children will love it.
The chair "odú" (the Hungarian word for cave) has a hard surface made from glass fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) and as a contrast a soft and cosy cushion inside that gives you the comfort you want.

finally, a pen that tastes good


I love it. We've been sucking and chewing on pen caps for years, it's about time we added five tasty flavors into the mix. I wonder when they will add caffeine for those late night study sessions. For more info check out suckmybic at

i bring u fire!


Cool, Fire! Modern design always looks better on fire.  Though this looks like the kind of thing you'd see on either side of an indoor club entrance in Vegas, it still could be kinda cool in the bedroom or by the jacuzzi, however the website does not recommend using it to toast your marshmallows.  Aprox 13094 SEK (Swedish) or $2120 USD

my coffee table has fire


The coffee table slides closed to put out the flame and according to the web site, On one end, a recess for your flue less EcoSmart™ burner, on the other, a recess for storing your own patch of grass or perhaps ice to chill your favourite bottle of champagne.  It's called "Fire and Ice".
