It seldom fails to impress me how quickly accessory manufacturers can knock together third-party gadgets for new devices, and Brando is certainly at the top of their game for flooding the market with "do I really need this?" trinkets.  Their latest addition is a so-called "Flexible Mini Capsule Microphone" for the iPhone 3GS, intended to take advantage of the thousands of people now recording dreary YouTube videos on their new smartphone.

If you prefer your gadgets looking extremely edible, these cute little guys from USB Brando would be great. They have everything from your health foods to the slightly more high calorie treats.

Apparently the deal with this card is that you slide it into your iPhone and it somehow magically hardware unlocks your iPhone. I am not an electrical engineer, so I can’t tell you how well this thing will work, but if I had to guess, it won’t.

I am sure by now you have probably seen a credit card shaped and sized MP3 player before. Only, chances are good, the one you saw cost a considerable amount more than this one.

Apparently there was another company with such an offering earlier this year and they were retailing a 2GB version for $150, now either they pushed their unsellable product off on Brando like they were the digital version of Goodwill, or Brando just stole their design and made it cheap. Regardless, Brando is offering up their 2GB credit card MP3 player for $42.

Brando webcam-telescope review: disappointing

Brando webcam-telescope review: disappointing

Honestly, some people just don't know their own strength.  Ellen over at The Gadgeteer acquired Brando's USB Webcam with Telescope (that looks surprisingly similar to the far more entertainingly-named Digital Cowboy from a few weeks ago) and set to work spying on the neighbours and peering long-lensed into trees.

 

Unfortunately the webcam, which Ellen says "feels like it's made from some kind of laminated paper," proceeded to break, its focus-ring spinning ineffectively like a drunken potter.
