I’m not into appliances that can only do one thing. In fact, I think it seems quite foolish to have a popcorn popper, hot dog cooker (you know the ones… what toasters would look like if they went to the carnival), and a margarita-making machine. I mean, who can afford all that counter/cabinet space storing stuff you only used once every five years? To that...

Italdesign Giugiaro released full details of their concept car the Quaranta, just days before it will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show. The amazing part about the car, aside from the supercar looks, is the fact that it uses a mid-mounted hybrid powertrain from Toyota. Combining the 3.3L V6 and Toyota hybrid technology makes 268 horsepower and 0-62mph times...

On February 10th we let you know that Sony Ericsson was releasing their new Xperia X1 smartphone. If you were waiting to get your hands on one of them, prepare to wait a while… try October 2009. Bummer. We’ll let you know if we hear anything more about the X1. {Via SonyEricsson} ...

A NEW facial harness now on the market lays claim to the ability to improve milady’s beauty. How the device is worn is illustrated in the photo above.

  What’s Black and White and looks like two Double Stuff Oreo cookies on your feet? It’s the Adidas Micropacer, Venice Carnival Edition Sneakers. I hate the word “sneakers” – Let’s go with “running shoes”. This edition is a tribute to the festival of masks. OK??? Now here’s the geeky coolness factor –...

Corsair just announced a “new and improved” version of the 16GB Flash Voyager. Only differences are the addition of the text “GT”, red color instead of blue, and fast instead of slow. We have the old version… and it is truly slow. Can’t wait to get our hands on the faster version. The drive should is expected to retail for around...

Maximum “shock value” in a deceptive package of a regular cell phone complete with colorful screen and fake cell phone buttons. Immobilizer Cell Phone Gun even comes with a fake cell phone camera bump and a little black phone holster to complete the illusion that its nothing more than a regular camera phone. The magic starts when you hit the STUN button,...

You know what I like to do when I’m sitting on the couch, watching American Idol, eating Doritos, and drinking my Coke – I walk my dog! How do I do this? You say it’s impossible! Not if you own the Fit-Fur-Life Doggy Treadmill! I own the Superior Model which comes with the decline and incline features. I crank that puppies incline and speed to high...

If you have ever wanted detailed stats on your typing speed (in words-per-minute) or wondered how many words you type in a day… you just may “need” a USB Speedometer. The unit is available in March for about $39. This gadget tops out at 260 WPM which is faster than the current world record of 192 WPM on a standard QWERTY Keyboard. {Via Technabob} ...

Decent looking exercise bike with a practical add-on… a fan. Really not much else to say…. peddle faster… get more free electricity, and in turn more free wind from the fan. Read on for more pics. ...
