The retro iPod Tote

The retro iPod Tote

I was instantly hooked when I saw this retro tote, featuring an old record player design on the front. Then when I found out it had speakers for my iPod, I had to resist buying myself an early Christmas present.

With Christmas coming up fast, its time to finish up that shopping. If you still haven't found a gift for that special girly in your life (even if that girl is you), this laptop bag is a decently priced gift.

The Dolce Vita Laptop bag comes with a removable laptop pouch, just in case you might need the bag for books or an overnight getaway. If you're into the messenger bag look, this bag's unique artwork on the front flap definitely makes it stand out from the crowd.

J!NX’s gift list is fun for both sexes

As a female geek I often notice situations that are strongly leaning toward the male geeks. In all fairness sometimes it does get exaggerated a bit by some, but it still does get obnoxious from time to time. Especially when suggested gift lists for girls suggest jewelry and clothes; then the guys is full of Palm Pilots and all kinds of cool toys. Which makes it highly refreshing when I saw this year's Jinx gift list for both girl and guy geeks.

Fab laptop bags are a fashionable choice for the ladies

Fab laptop bags are a fashionable choice for the ladies

I am beginning to think with all the laptop bags that I tend to salivate over, if I had the money for it, I would probably have a whole closet full of them. This Fab laptop bag is yet another to add to my ever growing wish list.

The bag comes in all kinds of varying styles and colors and is clear from Amsterdam. The line also has purses, handbags and belts.

The bags are all handcrafted and made of leather. As with all unique designs this laptop bag is a bit pricey at just over $300.

The Video Game Cuff Links

The Video Game Cuff Links

Sometimes even gamers need to look nice, you can't wear those quirky tees all the time. If you're stuck in an office all day, you need that one bit of rebellion to remind you of who you really are. These cuff links are a nice enough quality to blend into any environment.

Watch with 1GB flash inside

Watch with 1GB flash inside

It connects via USB, and compared to some of the other USB watches I have seen, this one actually has some class to it. It’s still kind of ugly with that large blank space at the bottom of the face, but it’s a step in the right direction.

I don’t know if the USB cable is built in, or if there is a mini USB female port in the side of the watch where a cable would connect the watch to your PC. Regardless, I like the idea of combining flash storage with other objects of use, just carrying a flash drive, its easy to lose, but put that flash drive on your wrist and make it both a fashion accessory and a functional time-telling device, and you are far less likely to forget or lose it.

E-mood Furnitrue Range – Fashion for your Facility

E-mood Furnitrue Range – Fashion for your Facility

If there is one room in the house where functional and practical take reign over style and class, it’s the bathroom. The bathroom, often small and cramped, needs space and outlets above all other things, aside from a toilet, sink and tub/shower that is. Duravit kept that in mind with its e-mood design and brought along a little style and class with it.

The e-mood furniture range is just about everything you could ask for in a bathroom accessory. It comes with all the lighting requirements, via touch LEDs, one may need in the bathroom and with its programmable mood lighting it also comes with all the lighting one may want in the bathroom. This includes a nightlight feature which turns on when it gets dark. You’ll also find a discretely placed tissue and soap dispenser, a cosmetic shelf and of course a hidden power outlet! You’ll also get the e-light element, e-wall fitted storage cabinet and a large illuminated glass e-screen.

The Smart Closet – reminds you on what to wear

The Smart Closet – reminds you on what to wear

The Smart Closet, it tells you what to wear, keeps track of your schedule and let’s you know when it’s time for dry cleaning. I’m starting to think the Australian researches who invented this are badly in need of girlfriend.

The Smart Closet takes its job seriously and even goes so far as make sure you don’t wear the same clothes you wore the last time you met someone/went somewhere and let you know which items are in your closet. I can’t help but think Cher from the movie Clueless would have loved this. I can see this being useful for guys who want to make a good impress and yet don’t care about what they wear but in a “shocking” twist can’t imagine those guys buying it; especially if they had to take the time to sew the sensors in to all their clothes.

Dual Option Glasses – flip into the world of Jekyll and Hyde concept

Dual Option Glasses – flip into the world of Jekyll and Hyde concept

Almost everyone I know wears glasses, including myself, so I can understand the appeal of Hyo-Jong Kim’s design. Using hinges and pivots to “flip” the glasses into a new style is an ingenious idea. It turns one pair into two and that makes it a little nicer on the wallet.

At first glance I was puzzled as to how this concept would work. You don’t get the same view from both sides of your lenses, but not to worry that was thought of. It isn’t just the lenses that flip; the ear pieces flip too giving you a clear view of the world once more.
