The Only Gun Ok’d for Office Use – The Gun Shaped Computer Mouse

No matter what your occupation, at some point you’re going to find yourself under some stress. It’s during those times that one might wish for this Gun-Shaped Computer Mouse. The mouse, which is a perfect replica of a Sig P230, offers a fun (and scary!) solution to work related problems. The trigger acts as a left click, while the right click can be found conveniently under your middle finger as you grip the gun. It’ll work both for right handed and left handed people which is a plus.

The Digital Bank – keep track of your pennies

The Digital Bank – keep track of your pennies

Who doesn’t love saving money, nobody that I know of. Who doesn’t like counting their money, again, same answer. When we count our money and see our hard earned savings it’s a great feeling, the closest we may ever come to Scrooge McDuck and pool of gold. With the Discovery Amazing Money Jar, kids can now experience that same feeling.

Rumor : iPhone SDK seeded to some developers

Rumor : iPhone SDK seeded to some developers

There is a rumor floating around the blogosphere that Apple has released the “alpha” iPhone SDK to some developers. Electronista claimed a reliable source has informed them that Apple has given some companies access to the rough version of the tools. The software development kit or SDK allows application developers to create native iPhone and iPod touch software. The source said current rough version of the SDK has clear limitations, although no details information on what limitations they are. Steve Jobs announced to the world in an open letter that an iPhone and iPod touch SDK would be release in February 2008.

Compiano – Geek Meets Chic

Compiano – Geek Meets Chic

There is some part of everyone that knows if you ever make it big, no matter how you do so, you are going to buy a piano. Nothing says “I’m filthy stinking rich” like pianos do and so we will get one, even if we have no musical talent whatsoever. With this new case mod though, you can have a piano you will actually use.

This 1904 Chickering Upright Grand Piano is actually cleverly disguising a 26’ wide screen Philips LCD HDTV/computer monitor, stereo speakers, a wireless Microsoft keyboard with intergrated mouse and a CD/DVD Burner and a remote control. It has a 6.8 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM and a 500 GB hard drive. It comes with Windows XP Media center Edition so you’ll be Vista free.

Motorola RIZR Z6c nets FCC approval

Motorola RIZR Z6c nets FCC approval

The next addition to the RAZR-like devices is well on its way gaining the approval of the FCC. The Moto RIZR Z6c is headed to the VZW or Verizon Wireless.

This is another one of those devices getting the “World Edition” badging due to its dual-band CDMA/EV-DO and Dual-Band GSM (900/1800MHZ) which means you can use it in most of Eurasia as well. Imagine the Motorola SLVR, but in slider form with the RAZR style keypad underneath, and that’s pretty much the RIZR in a nutshell.

Cyber Gadget’s Famiclone

Cyber Gadget’s Famiclone

The Famicom is the Japanese version of the old-school Nintendo Entertainment System. So imagine my glee at hearing that I can now get a Famicom(NES) adapter for my DS’s GBA slot.

It even adds a TV-out port so you can hook up your CRT and it will be just like the good ole days. This adapter does however lessen the portability of the DS, but for the ability to play NES games on the go, I’d say it’s a worthy sacrifice.

Official Activision Guitar Hero 3 wireless controllers not coming until 2008

Official Activision Guitar Hero 3 wireless controllers not coming until 2008

That’s pretty much it, those of you that have the PS3 or Wii versions of the game can go buy a whole other copy of the game to get a second controller. For now that’s it, and the Xbox 360 and PS2 owners are stuck without until next year.

So, there are tons of knockoff guitar controllers, there is one guitar for Guitar Hero 1, 2, and 3, and another for Rock Band, and depending on what system you have, there were some random special edition official guitars along the way. That’s pretty much it though.

IOTEK ezSECU ez850 HDD enclosure

IOTEK ezSECU ez850 HDD enclosure

That’s right, what you see in the picture is in fact a touchscreen asking for your secret PIN of 7 digits. Sure, you could use encryption, or a fingerprint scanner, or any number of other biometric options, but for this one you actually have to be conscious.

And its an enclosure, which means you get to pick which 2.5” SATA HDD gets put inside. The upsides to that small of a drive means the enclosure should be near pocketable in size and there is the possibility that it could be powered over USB, but maybe not as it comes with a power brick and cord.

Geneva Model M launched today

Geneva Model M launched today

For those of you not in the know, Geneva is well known for making wood-enclosed audio systems for iPods. And they must be pretty amazing at it considering their Model XL costs $1275 and their Model L costs $699 and they are still in business.

Their biggest selling point is the wood enclosure, not because it looks cool, but for what it does for the sound coming out of the system. I honestly think the only music that doesn’t benefit from the sound improvements offered by wood enclosures might be Techno/Trance and stuff of that sort, which is good music, but due to the nature of it, it doesn’t sound better from the softening and smoothness that a wood enclosure offers.
