Garment Deodorizer makes your clothes smell better

How many pieces of your wardrobe require a trip to the neighborhood dry cleaner to be washed? Now how often do you actually take them there? Yes, we all know the trick of spraying Febreze on a shirt to get rid of any smells, but that’s not always the most effective way to do things. Rather, if you have an article of clothing that has contracted a smell from things like smoke, you can use this Garment Deodorizer to treat…

Farewell Zune

For those of you that had any kind of attachment to the Zune, I ask you pull out the black clothes for mourning. Microsoft has finally lain to rest the ďbest alternative to the iPodĒ as it hasnít updated the Zune in about two years. There wasnít much debate over it, since it doesnít have anything that could really put it on the map, such as Angry Birds. Though they do intend to sell whatís left on the shelves, Microsoft…

iTwin lets you share your data with ease

One of the best ways to access data remotely is to get a Dropbox account. There are those of us in the world that like to have things a little bit more tangible than a site that has the capability to crash or be hacked at any given point.† A lot of people hate having to memorize a bunch of usernames and passwords, so having the ability to share files without needing to login to something would probably most helpful….

Nintendo 3DS loads older games considerably slower than a regular DS

With it being the latest in the Nintendo’s line of portable gaming units, one would think that it is superior to its predecessor. Though it may have glasses-free 3D video, its loading times for old DS games makes the new game system smell a little less enticing. One would think the loading times for older DS games should be half or even a fourth less the older versions, but Gamespot managed to let us in on a secret. They nabbed…

LEGO Minifigure USB Thumb Drive

There are so many LEGO things coming out lately that I just want to build a house of it all and confuse my friends. Everything would be so bright and detachable that no one would know what to do. In my newly made home, I would need all sorts of themed accessories, such as the LEGO USB Thumb Drive for all those important LEGO-related files I would need to transfer. This flash drive is probably one of my favorites that…

What’s so special about that new iPad case?

There are those of us who can plainly accept something that is awesome. There are also those of us that accept it, but want to know why it is awesome. The iPad 2 was designed to have a cover that works as a stand, turn off when its case is on, and auto aligns when placed over the glass face. This is all done through the power of magnets, but iFixit wanted to know how many magnets, where they were,…

Tembo Trunks: Silicone Earbud Amplifiers

Weíve all experienced this at one time or another. Being out and about, and suddenly being hit with the want to listen to music, and no way to amplify it without having earbuds in. Thanks to Mike and Scott Norrie of Australia, we now have a silicon amplifier in the works that will bump your ear buds sound up to 80 dB. That is the equivalent of listening to music from a car thatís 25 ft away. They had the…

Star Wars R2-D2 Xbox 360

Well, thatís it. Iím done with trying to find a cool skin for my Xbox or some sort of fancy case. Owner of Major League Mods, Mark Bongo has created the ultimate Xbox 360 and now anything I find or make will seem inadequate. This is a somewhat large Star Wars R2-D2 Xbox 360 with a built-in projector, and on the scale of awesome, it ranks better than yours. Pretty much everything about this mod looks flawless. The projector will…

We all know how hard it can be to do anything on a Monday.

Thankfully there are some people out there who know our pain, and want to show us they can relate. Now breakfast will agree with how your feel with this somewhat depressed Pop Art Toaster. In…

Celluon EvoMouse – turn your finger into a pointer

The Celluon EvoMouse is a rather clever little gadget that does away with the need for a mouse and replaces it with a laser beam mousemat which reacts to your finger movements. Just point at the desk (or other flat surface) with your finger and the beam will transfer your movements onto the screen as cursor actions. Pretty neat.   It hooks up to the computer via Bluetooth or USB port and responds to double clicks, drag/drop, multitouch zoom & rotate…

WattsClever Alkaline Battery Charger – charge up your Duracell batteries and get more juice for your money

The WattsClever Alkaline Battery Charger is designed to charge up ordinary household batteries, like those dud Duracells you’ve got in the kitchen drawer. It manages to do this by using a microprocessor to minutely control the trickle charge so the batteries don’t overheat and die.   Apparently you can recharge batteries up to 20 times, although their capacity will diminish each time you do. Not cheap at $50.95/£31.97, but could be worth it if you’re forever throwing away dud toy…
