Carrying a superslim wireless phone like a RAZR or Blade doesn’t look so hot if your Bluetooth headset is big and clunky.
Sony Ericsson’s new HBH-IV835 keeps your sexy phone looking sexy. It’s glossy black and silver casing complements its sleek, slim profile. It also fits in your ear, rather than hanging on with an annoying hook, which makes taking it on and off much easier.
The IV835 also features the latest technology: Bluetooth 2.0, Digital Signal Processing to filter out unwanted background noise, automatic volume adjustment to make calls come through loud and clear, and auto-pairing to get you up and running fast.
Lieutenant Uhura never had a headset like this!
Retails for about $80 at Amazon and other stores.
While the Sun Jar appears to be an ordinary mason jar, it is really a solar powered lamp that charges during the day to be used at night. I really appreciate its eco-friendly approach, which doesnt feel too mechanical. Put it on your windowsill or in your sunroom, next to your jar of sun brewed tea.

It might be a little too early to start thinking about your Halloween costume, but if you are planning on having the coolest outfit ever, you might have to start saving now! Actually, to afford the $1,300 Stormtrooper armor and helmet, you might need to take out a loan, but hey, it’s worth it...right?!
Considering the item is “out of stock” at the moment. my guess is that I am not the only insane being out there who would actually consider spending the equivalent of a fairly nice flat screen TV on a Star Wars outfit. That said, this Stormtrooper attire is an accurate reproduction of the original helmet and armour used in the movie; in fact that helmet is apparently made out of the same original 1976 movie mould.
Could any Star Wars fan possibly ask for more?

It seems that dogs, unlike cats, can't be trained to use the toilet. What do you do if you live in an apartment and can't bring your dog out as often as you need to? The Pet Loo, which looks similar to the PetAPotty that Mia once wrote about, was invented to solve this problem. A layer of porous, synthetic grass hides a concave surface that drains urine into the receptacle below. The receptacle can be easily removed for emptying, and you only have to pour warm water over the grass to clean it. If your doggy decides to poop onto the Pet Loo, just scoop it off - the grass can be hosed down if necessary. The Pet Loo site has tips on training your dog to use it.
The Pet Loo seems to be widely available in Australia but harder to find elsewhere; online, it's available from Critter Cottage (which also stocks the Litter Kwitter for cats).

Forget the "Easy" button you see on the commercials -- this is the one we need! Of course, it won't actually fix anything, but just think how much better you'll feel after stabbing it a number of times while swearing profusely. I'm putting it on my computer keyboard, but you could put in anywhere -- your car dash, kitchen, child's homework desk. It comes with a self-adhesive pad on the base.

Originally developed as an ‘anti-hangover elixir,’ Resurrect has been re-introduced as a ‘detox’ beverage that is full of healthy ingredients which are claimed to have the benefit of cleansing the liver of impurities, aiding in digestion, and eliminating toxins that create intestinal woe and general fogginess. [I can’t help but note the correlation between hangovers and detox.]
It's formulated with 22 vitamins, herbs, electrolytes, and amino acids, including some interesting ones like Artichoke Bud Extract, Milk Thistle, and Dandelion Root Extract; they combine into a refreshing fruit-flavored drink… which, according to Resurrect’s web site, is perfect for mixing with vodka, gin, and rum!
If you think man's best friend is a dog, forget it. In an era of constant travel and late night flights, your new best friend is the Fido Bag. A playful two-in-one solution to the active person's lifestyle, the Fido Bag has a large main compartment that can function as a gym bag, carry-on, duffle, or tote. A smaller compartment at the side of the bag detaches for when you need your essentials. Both are fully lined, and the entire bag features an adjustable shoulder strap. Originally designed for the Sputnik Spacelines exhibition in Tokyo, increased demand has enabled the designers to offer the Fido Bag to everyone. For $180 USD, you can take your little buddy with you wherever you go.
Do you remember the Swingline Stapler? I do, especially, when I'm using some cheap plastic stapler that barely punctures ten sheets of paper. The all-metal jam resistant Swingline can handle a hefty 20 sheets of 20 lb paper, takes S.F. 4 Premium or standard staples, and measures 7" x 2.5".
If you are still shopping for supplies for school, Thinkgeek sells the Classic Swingline for $21.99.
While we're on the subject, I also miss pencil sharpeners screwed onto table tops, purplish ink printed on ditto sheets, and demin-blue cloth 3 rind binders, but I digress.
Got a Flickr pro account? If you do, then you still have a few days to take advantage of this special offer. Moo.Com, an online printing service, has joined forces with Flickr to turn your online photos into these fab-looking MiniCards, for free.
MiniCards are customized calling cards, and Moo is giving them away for free to the first 10,000 Flickr Pro users. You can choose 10 different images from your own collection and have Moo print them up (1 side image, the other side for contact info) for free, plus free shipping anywhere in the world. The catch is, you’ll have to do it before September ends.
But if you can’t make the end of September deadline, their regular printing service is very affordable as well. You can have 100 cards printed up, with a different image on each and every one of them, all for the price of $19.99. If you work in the design or any other creative field, this could be a wonderful way to showcase your talent.
Well, you be the judge. Twin designers, Lauren and Paulina Bibi, apparently made quite a splash in the recent Apple Expo in Paris.
These wonderfully cute and endearing Bibi iPod covers \ look to be made of colorful felt material and buttons, and are priced at about $40 to $50.
Their designs for MacBook covers are just as adorable, but still under development. The girls don’t have an online website yet, but if you’re really interested, you can send them an email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I sure hope their address can handle a mass quantity of emails. With such a cute and adorable looking product, they will be inundated with all sorts of inquiries.
