Bring it to Life Stickers – have a little fun with your office supplies

Now it is quite obvious that putting stickers all over your office supplies is completely immature, and of course being the mature adult that I am I would never do such a thing. However, even if you are mature, I'm sure your inner child would love these little guys.

Darth Vader Hologram Bobble-head – Seriously, WTF?

There are so many things that one can't hope to ever understand. This Darth Vader Hologram Bobble-head would be one such object.

Rumor – Amazon lists Rock Band Collection for $199

I really wish that Harmonix would settle on a price for Rock Band and make an official announcement. This would put an end to all of the speculation over pricing that we've seen lately. Amazon added Rock Band to their store, along with their own price tag.

Oki develops iris scanner for your mobile phone

I've never really been too worried about someone stealing my phone, though I'm sure that the risk is always there. I generally keep my Helio tucked away in my pocket when I'm not talking on it, and I don't think anyone would really want to fish around in my pocket to nab my phone. If this next technology takes off, I would worry even less.

Kingston announces 4GB miniSDHC cards, eMusic microSD card/reader

Kingston is releasing all kinds of goodies these days. Last week we heard about their Collegiate microSD cards, earlier we saw their speedy CF Ultimate Cards, now they've dropped two more announcements in our laps.

The first announcement is that they will be releasing their 4GB miniSDHC cards in Class 2, 4 and 6 speed ratings. Who cares what the class rating is, as long as it's big right? Well, if you don't mind transferring your data at a painfully slow rate, then there's no reason to worry. If aren't familiar with the class ratings, the number represents the minimum sustained data transfer rate (or DTR) in MB/sec. So a Class 6 card would have a minimum DTR of 6MB/sec. The new 4GB cards will range only from $62 to $66, however, you'll want to make sure you get the right card for your device, as they are not backwards-compatible with regular miniSD devices.

Future Sonics Atrio M8 Review

Future Sonics Atrio M8 Review

Close up, with the angle just right and if you flex your imagination, Future Sonics' Atrio M8 earphones look a little bit like a chocolate fountain. Perhaps that's not exactly what they had in mind - the removable silicone plugs, of which three pairs are supplied together with alternative foam sleeves, are designed to make a good seal with your ear canals rather than form the ideal surface for melted chocolate to cascade over - but looked at in isolation the unusual shape doesn't particularly resemble something you'd listen to music with.

Rumor – SL98 phone from BenQ Siemens

Do you ever have a great idea that, when you actually act on it, doesn't seem like such a great idea anymore? I'm thinking that's the case with this new SL98 prototype phone from BenQ Siemens.

Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks – Now that’s a tiny receiver!

I do a bit of traveling for different shows and such, and that means taking my laptop everywhere. I hate using the trackpad for long periods of time, so I usually have a mouse with me. I'm always terrified that one of these days I'm going to break off that little dongle that plugs into my notebook. Logitech realized this as a problem and solved it with their VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks.

Microsoft confirms a new Zune on the way in time for the holidays

Despite the fact that the Zune has sold over a million units, it's still not considered to be that popular. I've known a few people to own one, and all of them have either gotten rid of them, or tried to get rid of them. Perhaps they'll do better with Zune 2.0?

DirecTV Sat-Go, Portable Satelitte TV

DirecTV Sat-Go, Portable Satelitte TV

DirecTV Sat-Go is the only portable satellite TV system in the market. If you are like me where I go to tailgating for my college football games frequently, the DirecTV Sat-Go is a perfect gear for the occasion. However on design, it is not much of a looker and the price tag is quite high at $1499.
