Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth speaker has to be the best looking one I’ve seen

Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth speaker has to be the best looking one I’ve seen

I have no idea how well this spherical Bluetooth speaker sounds, but it is by far way better looking than any other Bluetooth speaker I’ve seen, and these things were pretty popular on the CES show floor. Usually Bluetooth speakers are bland, competing on the fronts of thinness, battery power, and then overall sound seemingly the 3rd most important feature.

Garmin Nuvifone is the phone of my dreams

I could go on about how similar to the iPhone this phone is, but I won’t, I’ll simply summarize it by saying that I have an iPod Touch, and I love it, but I think this Garmin Nuvifone would more than fill the smartphone void in my digital life. It has a proprietary Garmin OS, HSDPA, Quad-band GSM, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.5” touchscreen (not sure if its multi-touch, but that definitely is the same size screen as the iPhone).
