Now we've got it straight from Sony Ericsson that the W950i Walkman is indeed for real and is indeed sporting 4GB of sweet sweet flash memory. We're not so sure about this whole "Mystic Purple" color scheme they've got going, but there's a lot else to love, including UMTS, tri-band GSM, a rather large QVGA screen, and a 0.6-inch thickness. The Symbian OS phone also has Opera 8, Macromedia Flash Lite, video playback support, and a built-in FM radio to augment the standard Walkman MP3/AAC capability. We'll have to try the smooth keypad before we pass final judgment, but while sexy looking, it doesn't seem like it'll make one-handed texting any easier.

Oliso Touch & Glide Iron will literally stand on its own two feet all by itself. When the iron is released, the Auto-Lift feature with Smart Touch handle automatically deploys spacers from the nonstick aluminum sole plate. The spacers lift the iron up if it is sitting on its sole plate to prevent burns on clothing or ironing surfaces. Then, when your hand touches the Smart Touch handle, the spacers automatically retract. It’s the best way yet to prevent accidental burns and to reduce the fire hazards posed by inadvertently leaving an iron on. Plus, the auto shut-off system automatically turns the iron off when it falls over or sits too long without being used.
