If you happen to be wandering around Manhattan with some extra beer between June 9 and June 17, you might want to swing by one of Crumpler's two stores to exchange it for a bag. The high-end bag maker is running its second annual Beer for Bags campaign in which customers can bring in beer to barter for one of the company's messenger, laptop, or photo bags. Crumpler has been running the same kind of sale in its home base of Australia for five years now, and last year's introductory New York sale saw over 1,000 … Read more

You might remember hearing about the RCA Small Wonder EZ201 just a few months ago at CES 2007. It's the follow-up to RCA's inexpensive, extremely simple digital camcorder, the Small Wonder EZ101. It's finally shipped--just in time for Mother's Day.
The $130 camcorder's predecessor fared poorly in our tests, scoring a disappointing 5.6. Thankfully, this new version makes several improvements over that version, including twice as much on-board memory (capable of recording 60 minutes of video compared to the EZ101's 30 minutes), an SD card memory slot, and a flip-out 1.5-inch LCD … Read more
The Motorazr Purple V3i has been launched for Mother's Day, apparently the first Motorola phone sold exclusively through its own stores. SlashGear says it's basically a standard V3i model with a deep metallic finish, though it's nice to know that someone cares. But purple? Maybe it's aimed at moms nostalgic for the '60s.
A mom will always want to see your smiling mug on Mother's Day, even if you've got a face that's perfect for radio. So, in addition to those ubiquitous digital photo frames that are taking over the world, we'll likely be seeing more products like the "Packet8 Tango" in the next couple of weeks.
This gadget, which we first saw at a CES preview in Vegas early this year, promises to turn any analog line into a video phone with a 5-inch LCD screen, according to Gearlog. It also includes a bunch of other features, … Read more
I'll be the first to admit that I have, on various occasions, called chocolates passé. But what do I know? Besides, I love chocolate. (Indeed, I'm pretty keen on anything edible.) However, I'm not a mommy--and we all know how I feel about iPods--so I doubt I'll be a recipient of BestBuy's special Apple iPod Nano and Chocolate Gift Set. Regardless of my parental status or personal player preferences, I still think this is a cute gift. After all, it combines two of my favorite things: music and food. If your mom shares … Read more
It happens all the time: You take some photos with your gold camera, then transfer the files to your gold USB drive, but where do you make the prints? Hewlett-Packard has the obvious answer, with its 24-carat gold HP Laserjet printer.
