This isn’t your run of the mill digital camera, sure it uses and SD card and takes pictures and video, but it does it all at night. Even better yet, it doesn’t use the intensifier tube tech, so that means you can use it in the day as well.
China is to claim the world 2nd fastest commercial bullet train at 300kmh, 20kmh shy of France’s Train Grande Vitesse. Current fastest domestic trains run at services speed of up to 250kmh, a newer and 50kmh faster model, rolled off the production line this weekend and has a schedule to put on service between Beijing – Tainjin route just in time before the Beijing Olympics in August 2008. Xinhua news agency reported that the China self-designed and developed 8-carrieges train can seat about 600 passengers, weighted in 7 tons of aluminum alloy and will reduce travel time between the two cities from 80 minutes to around 30 minutes.
For those that travel quite often, those hotel alarm clocks don't always seem trustworthy enough. Generally, if you actually attempt using the foreign alarm clock you spend the rest of the night sweating that maybe you set it wrong. This Mini Alarm Clock is portable enough to take with you wherever you go.
Sadly, this device seems about 10 years too late, since most of us just use our cellphone for an alarm when we're away from home. However, it does also have a built in flashlight and sometimes those alarms in our phones malfunction a bit. That or you may not have an annoying enough ringtone to wake you up in the morning. So, if you need an alternative this little clock is just the thing.
It measures 1” x 3” x .75” therefore it would be great to just toss in your pocket or in an overnight bag. It also includes a calendar, stopwatch and timer. All together it costs $25.

I don’t know about the rest of you normal mouse using folk, but if it weren’t for my Logitech TrackMan Wheel mouse featuring a shiny red trackball, there is no way I could get my job done as quick as I do. I mean, do you know how hard it is to get my mouse from one corner of my screen to the other in a timely manner? Just kidding, but I seriously couldn’t survive without it, however whenever I have to travel with my laptop, I have two choices, deal with the touch pad, or try and cram my TrackMan in somewhere and hope I don’t lose the trackball.
Sadly it’s just a replica and won’t help you get back to the day you were conceived so you can slap your dad on the ass as he’s going at it and then laugh maniacally. But it does look cool, and if you do happen to have the good fortune of owning a DMC-12, it would be a very fitting accessory to add to your vehicle.
