Meizu M8 – no, of course it doesn’t look like an iPhone…

So the rep from Meizu, much like the company as a whole, continues to profess their design didn’t come from the iPhone, that their design was completed some time towards the end of 2006, well before the iPhone was released. They still don’t mention anything about the software though, which is almost definitely stolen from Apple.

Samsung G400 Soul – Shiny Shiny

It depresses me slightly to see a mobile phone that is in a clamshell form factor and has a larger external screen that the internal one on my clamshell. But, I guess that’s how Samsung rolls, go big or go home.

Urban Tool holster kind of makes you look like a tool

So these bags are designed in various wacky shapes and sizes primarily to simulate a gun holster (at least from what I’ve seen that’s what I get). Except instead of carrying firearms and ammunition, they carry your useful gadgets, ID, things of that nature.

ThermalTake Cases – can make even a 386 look badass

They have a new XaserVI Mx case that is a mid-tower version of the amazing XaserVI. They’ve kept the whole thing covered in mesh metal grills, filled with fans, and organized so that the GPU(s), CPU(s), and HDD(s) all have their own path of air flow for optimal cooling. There is tool-free installation of everything except the motherboard and power supply, and the mid-tower size will look a little better on top of your desk.

TomTom GO 930, 730 & 530 with new HD GPRS traffic receiver

TomTom have launched a new range of in-car GPS sat nav units at CeBIT 2008 today, together with a GPRS-enabled traffic receiver that plugs directly into a car's cigarette lighter.  The three new devices, the 930, 730 and 530, all feature the company's new IQ Routes technology which not only takes into account distance and permitted road speeds in calculating routes but also real-world typical speeds.  TomTom are claiming that in 50-percent of journeys this new algorithm results in a different, quicker route than before.  The GPS units also add Advanced Lane Guidance, which introduces more realistic junction diagrams, arrows indicating lane transitions and better voice prompts.
