You know the feeling of leaving a store late at night, and walking out into a dark parking lot? While you don’t actually believe that anything is going to happen, you breathe just a little faster knowing that it could. I know I always like to hold my keys in between my fingers thinking I could hurt someone with them, but holding 5 million volt stun gun that looks like a cell phone, well, that could give me an almost unfair advantage over a would be attacker!
I am a firm believer in the less is more theory, but I probably dont mean it like you think. I believe that the less I HAVE to do the MORE time I have to do all the other stuff I want… I really enjoy gadgets that do things for me. I am waiting in breathless anticipation for the washing machine that will iron my clothes and a self cleaning refrigerator. Yup, my favorite gadgets are those that help me do less, and now that Tobii Technology has teamed up with Lenovo and come up with a laptop that doesnt require you to use a mouse – or a keyboard, well, lets just say the future looks bright.
To use the Lenovo laptop you just need your eyes. The process seems relatively user friendly, you simply sit in front of it and after a thirty second calibration test that consists primarily of following several dots around with your eyes you’re done, and the laptop will go through the paces that your peepers suggest, look at an icon,voila! information about that icon. If you are reading, the text scrolls as needed. It’s an unencumbered way to interact with your laptop, and one that could be ready for consumer applications in as little as 2 or 3 years.
For those of you out there who tend to be a little bit careless with your belongings, no matter how expensive they are, then it would always be better to pick up something which is cheap instead of gunning for an expensive make or model all the time. After all, it is rather difficult to predict just when you are going to be at your butterfingers best – which is why Panasonic figured out the consumer digital camera market has a need for the Panasonic Lumix TS20 rugged digital camera.
This entry-level shooter is not only shockproof and dustproof, it is also waterproof, so that you can continue to shoot photos with this puppy even when it pours outside, or should you want to go snorkelling and take underwater shots, the Lumix TS20 would also deliver results just as well.
Superlatives are often used to describe a particular product or device in order to have it stand out from the rest of the crowd – and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is one of them, where the Japanese manufacturer has proudly proclaimed this as “the world’s slimmest digital camera with a 20x optical zoom lens” – measuring a mere 1.1″ thin compared to its rivals in the market. The Lumix ZX20 will tote around a powerful zoom, a 24mm ultra wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens and the ability to shoot full-High Definition (HD), making it a formidable choice if you are in the market and on the lookout for a spanking new digital camera.
The reason it can be this slim is due to the newly-redesigned lens system, where the Lumix ZS20 will carry a new mechanical structure and optical system that is said to further improve image quality as well as getting the help of Nano Surface Coating technology. More on the camera right after the jump.
I used to spend a lot of time tied to my desk computer, then finally we had wireless routers and laptops, so I was at least able to make it into the living room. I always dreamed of the day I could be out by the pool, in the wine cellar or over in the East wing and still be able to access the internet on my trusty laptop or iPad.
Well, dreams have become reality (almost) as Amped Wireless begins shipping the Premium Series, long range, High Power Wireless-N 600mW Gigabit Router capable of up to 10,000 sq. ft. of Wi-Fi coverage for large homes, backyards or offices.
Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high-power, long-range wireless communication products for the home and office, announces the nationwide availability of the R10000G High Power Wireless-N 600mW Gigabit Router.
Okay, so we’ve reported on GIANTmicrobes before, I’m sure you remember the humorously educational stuffed toys modeled on electron micrographs, then enlarged a million times it’s actual size. Each plush including it’s micrograph image and all the info about the microbe it represents. The collection is still growing, with nearly 100 microbes in the series including the Common Cold, Brain Cells, Kissing Disease, Ebola, Bed Bugs and more. I mean, is there anyone among us that doesnt know someone that can use an extra brain cell? and how about the person that always complains that you gave them a cold? Well, really do it this time!
Anyway, GIANTmicrobes has a brand new Valentines day line up you probably don’t want to miss, starting with the sure to be popular, Sperm & Egg Panorama Gift Boxes, each of these 3 sets includes one GIANTmicrobes Egg Cell plush and one GIANTmicrobes mini Sperm Cell plush that attach by way of magnets, showcased in one of 3 very romantic scenes, or perhaps a Kissing Disease plush is more your style, as she blows kisses when you touch her lips and says “I love you” in five languages… Or for those of you who miss all the warm and fuzzy feelings some get from Valentines day, there’s always the Heart Burned collection, a lovely boxed set that includes, Herpes, Chlamydia, Pox, HPV and thankfully, Penicillin.
You know that back in the day, owning a mobile phone was pretty big business. You had to be a person with a reasonably comfortable bank balance in order to purchase one of these puppies, and there was still this thing called payphones as well. Make an appointment with a friend, and ensure you stick to the time and place religiously, as there was no way to keep in touch otherwise. These days, the cost of ownership of phones have dropped so much that even little kids own a handset, and the more privileged ones carry around iPhones in addition to a slew of other Apple products such as an iPad and iPod touch.
This revolution in the mobile consumer electronics industry has certainly led to a change in the way third party accessories manufacturers churn out products – they now have an even larger market to target, and Kidz Gear decided to throw their lot with Cupertino’s devices with their latest offering, targeting kids who own a myriad of Apple devices, coming in the form of the Kidz Gear Apple Wired Headphones for Kids.
If you are a golf widow, remember the mantra of repaying evil for good. Your man who knows even after two decades of a solid marriage, that you absolutely loathe the game of golf and still are unable to grasp the reason why they would attempt such a feat under the sweltering sun, and still continue to play with his buddies while leaving you all alone at home, will definitely be well pleased if you decide to take a different approach in loving him. Forget about taking revenge by maxing out his credit cards – you can always pamper him with the Bracketron Smuggler, an insulated cooler that is ideal for those hot, humid summer days.
After all, who would not want to treat their parched lips with an ice cold drink? This stealthy insulated cooler will slide into your golf bag without making it look out of place or unfashionable.
