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.
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.
Online tech superstore Brando has released several different telescopes for different models of cell phones. The telescopes attach to the back of the cell phones, and pictures can be taken using the built-in camera of cell phones. This is great for the paparazzi hidden inside of you, although stalkers could also use this to stalk their prey (not advised).
Cell phones have very low resolution cameras these days, coming in at 2 megapixels and as low as 0.5 megapixels. You can adjust the focus on the telescope, and the unit comes with a neckstrap, the actual unit, and a battery cover. I don't think I am going to be using this anytime soon, although it would make a nice gist for a photography nut who just doesn't have the right equipment. The Sony Ericsson model comes in at $19.

Many mp3 watches have a sporty and casual look for wearing to your morning jogs, but few come across as classic and sophisticated for wearing to your business meetings. Hence, its nice to see Brando’s new Stainless Steel Mp3 Watch in a classic unfussy style.
Featuring a built-in voice recorder, the watch holds up to1GB of mp3 files, including voice recordings saved in WMA format. Mp3s are transferred via USB 2.0 cable, and the battery unit allows for over nine hours of continuous playback. Audio controls are cleverly disguised as standard watch buttons on the sides. Priced at $75.
