The "Sound Box Waist Bag" not only carries your personal effects but also blares music from its sewn-in speaker. And if that's not enough reason to draw attention to your midsection, Red Ferret notes that it comes in bright orange. But we can't get past its name, which sounds disturbingly medical.
How many gadgets can you lug around while exercising? On one extreme, there are lightweight straps like the skull music headband, but we know you need more than that--the true gadget freak needs something like the "Soundwalk MP3 Player Audio Vest."
The vest claims to go a step beyond other products that simply provide secure pockets, featuring "hands-free functionality" for such controls as toggling from cell phone to media player. (The product literature doesn't explain exactly sure how this works, however.)
As noted in this space the other day, pink gadgetry is still very much in, to the dismay of some detractors (perhaps even among fellow Cravers). But in case any doubting Thomases remain, we point to the ultimate example: the iPod.
Proving its staying power, the pink iPod is in its fifth generation, according to Gizmodiva, the latest line being a "Romance Pink" limited edition from Colorware featuring a choice of four accents: rose, hearts, cherries and butterfly. Aside from these somewhat cheesy designs (can you say Hallmark?) the rest of the player is the same, with 30GB … Read more
The phone may not be terribly new but, if you live in the U.K., you can certainly get it with a colorful new look.
Sony Ericsson's K510i has the same specs as always, but its exterior has gotten a major makeover from hot British designer Julien Macdonald that looks downright psychedelic compared with the original in basic black. And if you get one of these from Orange, you'll be right on time.
MacDonald himself was quoted on Tech Digest thusly: "The print was inspired by exotic flowers, orchids in particular, so thought it would be perfect … Read more
If Samsung knows anything, it's marketing. It's a key reason that the South Korean company has gone from being known as a lower-end electronics brand to an international powerhouse in what seems like just a few years. The latest evidence: Beyonce.
GeekSugar, our favorite techno-celeb watcher, reports that the mega-star has been spotted filming her first commercial in downtown Manhattan under a new deal to represent Samsung Electronics. Perhaps this latest career move was influenced by the marketing genius of Jay-Z, who reportedly has made many more millions from his clothing lines and other businesses than he did … Read more
A study commissioned by phone retailer MPhone has surmised that both genders generally like the same models but want different colors. (Stop the presses!) The report also contained the blockbuster finding that "men were twice as likely to buy black phones," according to Gadgets Weblog.
And how reliable is this research? Consider this statement from an MPhone rep: "While we know who is … Read more
But if you're looking for a truly urban outfit, this may be for you: the bulletproof raincoat, which Spycatcher claims will resist everything from a pocket knife to "9mm Full Metal Jacket Round Nose projectiles." But Gizmodo notes that the $2,000 garment still leaves your neck exposed, so don't expect it to be of much help against vampires.
If you're … Read more
His latest functional art masterpiece is the RM011 Flyback Chronograph, a descendent of the RM 09 developed for F1 driver Felipe Massa, created with Formula 1 racing in mind. And with an estimated price between $60,000 and $80,000, it will fit right in with your pricey F1 mouse mats and Ferrari cell phone.
For those of you who know … Read more
Most of us have, at one point or another, been confronted with the ominous blue screen of death, that dreaded block of text that lets you know your Windows PC has encountered a serious system error and--to put it scientifically--you're probably massively screwed. According to the rules of computing, the BSOD generally appears when you're composing some life-altering document--on deadline.
Instead of tossing your computer out the window or crumbling in a heap of despair, why not enjoy a good chuckle over your ill fortune? In the spirit of laughing in the face of life's travails, PersonalizationMall.… Read more
When people say "geek chic," they're usually referring to hipsters in black Dolce & Gabbana glasses typing away on their MacBook Pros. But everybody knows that your average legit geek is more in the mold of Dwight Schrute than Gideon Yago (I bet that guy doesn't even know what PHP stands for).
Want to go for some real geek chic? Check out ProductDose's feature on nerdy neckties. My favorite is the binary tie, which probably looks like a normal blue tie from more than three yards away. But up close, it's clearly a bunch … Read more
