One for necessities, and the other for fun. So how do you decide how much to put in each?…

Wacom has decided to announce that they will be giving their Bamboo line a refresher. These newer low-cost tablets are very flat-surfaced, and have a rather small amount of bezel around their stylus-friendly surface. The new look has a very modern style to it, and the larger active area to bezel ratio is more than welcome. The line now possesses the Bamboo Connect which costs $79, and has a 5.8×3.6-inch work surface, the $99 Bamboo Capture carries the same work…

LG RoboCyking Canister Vacuum follows you as you clean

Canister vacuums are nice and compact, but they are a little hard to control when you’re trying to sweep up. You can tug it along behind you, but if you go around the corner, the vacuum isn’t going to respond to that kind of quick action, and will likely end up stuck. That’s why the LG RoboCyking canister vacuum is such a welcome relief. This dust-buster will follow you around like a shadow, as it will sense your movements and…

Bubble Tree gives to meaning to having a personal bubble

Trumstand iPhone Dock is nothing short of elegant

There are iPhone docks out there that will boost your sound a bit without the use of electricity. While they may do just that, they are normally made out of plastic, which is rather dull and boring. Although it will boost your sound, it doesn’t sound as crisp and beautiful as, say, a gramophone would. The Trumstand is a piece of art in the sense of both aesthetics and acoustics. It is made out of brass, copper, and aluminum, and…
