The Jimi is basically a J-shaped USB extension that brings a rear facing iMac USB port to the front.  The design is clean and functional and snaps on to the bottom of the iMac air port so it stays put. No more fishing around the back of your iMac to find an open USB port.  The Jimi ($14.95) USB extension fits both 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac computers.  Clever. ...

Eventually most of the data stored on our gadgets and computers will be held in SSD (solid state drives).  In other words no more of the spinning platter hard drives that work like record players. The main problem with the SSD market today, aside from the cost, is that there aren't a bunch of higher capacity options available.  It looks like SanDisk...

Regardless of how you feel about our governments massive power grab and warrantless spying on US citizens, this technology is pretty cool.  This tiny computer makes it much tougher for the NSA to spy on its users.  It starts off as a tiny Raspberry Pi computer and adds a USB WiFi adapter for TOR access.  You can buy this DIY kit with everything...

While I wouldn't technically call this a "green" product it is still cool and most likely less toxic than the plastic contraptions it will replace.  The Impecca KBB604CW Wireless Keyboard and Mouse is hand-carved...

A bit of shocker.  It seems that most of the products on the shelves in the USA are manufactured and assembled in China.  Not sure why Apple has chosen to assemble some of the new iMacs here in America.  One can imagine it is a combination of the following, assembly speed, cost, and/or Americanism.  Is that a word?

If nothing else, these PC speakers look pretty cool.  No more beige (or black) boxy shaped computer speakers for me.  The Edifier e10 Exclaim PC Speakers might even sound good with separate woofer and tweeter sections, both with their own passive...
