Elite750 – The most expensive (and pointless) email address

How many email addresses do you have? I’ve got a number that I use (and more that I’ve no doubt forgotten), though my Gmail account is my reliable everyday address. I got in on it early, so I have a pretty decent address. However, having a short Gmail address isn’t exactly prestigious. If you want an address that sets you apart, you should check out Elite750. By registering for an email address at this site, you’re letting the world know…

Star Trek Original Series Captain’s Chair Replica

Loving a television show is one thing, but buying a huge replica from some silly TV show is just silly. It’s a good thing Star Trek the Original Series wasn’t just a show! This Star Trek Original Series Captain’s Chair Replica is all of the goodness of Kirk’s chair is not a little more. Nothing will ever be as good as the real thing, but this comes in very close second. Built by Steve Horch of HMS Creative, you can…

USB Card Pen combines two easily-lost devices into one

It’s funny how technology changes our lives. Look back ten years ago, and think of how often you reached for a pen or pencil. Nowadays I’m much more likely to reach for a flash drive than a writing utensil. Unfortunately since I don’t use them very often, I do have times locating a pen. So why not have both a pen and flash drive that are one and the same? That’s the idea behind this USB Card Pen. It looks…

MtEverClimb is the most expensive way to climb rope

Looking back on those days of gym class, we can all remember when we saw that singular rope staring us down. Relying on sheer teenage muscular strength, we somehow managed to get to the top without dying. Can you imagine what your arms would look like if you climbed that rope every day? Well imagine no more as there is now the MtEverClimb. This exercise machine is 485 pounds worth of a steel frame with a pulley wheel system that…

The Skier Controlled Tow Boat

How many times have you wanted to go water skiing, only to find that you don’t have anyone to drive the boat? Sure, you could always pay someone to take you for a few laps around the lake, but why not try to be a little more self-sufficient? That’s right, steer the boat while you’re being pulled behind it. While that might sound like a feat worthy of  James Bond, you can actually do it yourself, with the right boat….

USB Nether Portal will free up your office clutter

When I’ve had a long week where I’ve spent entirely too much time in the office, my desk can become a bit cluttered. Eventually I’ll get fed up, and go on a cleaning spree, making sure that everything is neat and tidy once again. That usually involves loading up a garbage bag full of cups and fast food bags to take to the dumpster. It would be so much easier if there were somewhere that I could toss such waste…

Um…so you’ve just spent upwards of $700 on a top class style icon smartphone. Do you rush out and buy a Phone Croc foam rubber ‘slipper’ holder and string it round your neck?

Hmm…let’s think about that…$3.24.  Unique foam rubber slipper shaped cell phone holder looks very cute . Makes it more convenient to carry your cell phone…

ByteSpotter Hard Drives look great, but will break the bank

I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for a nice-looking PC. I’m rather proud of my setup, and usually take into account how a device is going to look when I add something to my desk. Mind you, I won’t spend a great deal of extra money to have something nicer-looking. For instance, when selecting a new hard drive, I’m not going to pay an extra $400 to have it look really, really nice. A company called CONVAR is selling high-end…

USB Flower Pot seems rather silly

It’s really nice that there’s a “go green” thing happening in our culture today. There are a lot of creative ideas to help try and clean up the mess that the world is. Though a lot of people have really good ideas, not all of them are up to speed on what it means to be “eco-friendly”. The USB Flower Pot is exactly what you think it would be. It can hold a small plant, and when the included software…

Yep, I can see me with one of these iPod Model things sat there in StarTrucks with a self-satisfied smirk, finger swiping away alongside a congealing latte and biscotti.

Buy your own life-size space shuttle replica

How many of you wanted to grow up to be an astronaut? Something tells me that not many of you have actually managed to make it into outer space. Unfortunately the life of an astronaut seems to lose its appeal when you realize that you won’t spend the majority of your time exploring new worlds or jumping around in the moon’s lax gravity. That’s alright though, you can still pretend to be one. No, I don’t mean that you should…
