Bunny iPod

bunny-ears.jpg

Cuter than chocolate kisses, and certainly less fattening, is this cute bunny costume for your iPod, just in time for Easter. We showed their Halloween line last fall, but that pirate outfit just isn't going to cut it in the spring.

California company iAttire hand-makes all the outfits and ships all over the world. The bunny comes with a little carrot, in case you're iPod gets hungry.

My favorite is the "Princess" for $39.99. You can bet no one would dare steal my music machine when it's dressed like this.

Verilux Natural Spectrum lighting

portable_lamp.jpg

It’s a scientific fact that our eyes function most effectively in natural daylight. Verilux Natural Spectrum lighting was developed with this in mind. Refined to include the best of natural daylight, you see greater contrast and truer colors with less effort and irritation.

This is a boon to artists, as you can imagine. As a matter of fact, Verilux was started by a famous illustrator, Howard Scott, who developed Natural Spectrum lighting because it allowed for greater contrast and excellent color rendering. Later, the AGI (American Gemological Institute) adopted Verilux Natural Spectrum as the light color to use to rate diamonds .

Unlike fluorescent lights, there's hardly any glare, thereby lessening eye fatigue and strain. The Verilux line utilizes an exclusive parabolic light diffuser and a patented 27 watt Natural Spectrum bulb, which sure beats the pants off my old halogen desk lamp.

For those on the go, there's an integrated handle, and for those with a wild side, it also comes in pink. $89.99 from Verilux.

As with all their products, there is a 100% guarantee -- if you're not over the moon about your new lamp they'll refund the price PLUS pay return postage.

Power cord identification made easy

id-pilot-labels.jpg

My husband will be crushed when he finds out that his label maker has been replaced. See, he has this habit of attaching sticky flags onto all of our power cords and wires. I tell him not to bother because my grab-and-wiggle technique (the one where you yank on a cord and follow the movement down to the outlet to make sure you're not unplugging the wrong thing) has seen me through years of rats' nests behind the entertainment center and underneath my computer desk, but he continues to print labels.

Turns out that both our methods have been outdone by the ID Pilot Wire Identification Labels.

Available in office, electronics, and household themes, each package of labels contains an assortment of white vinyl 5/8" stickers bearing images of almost anything that requires electricity. Only $6.

Making it easy to return lost cell phones

yougetitback.jpg

Like most cell phone or PDA users, my biggest nightmare is that if I lose the device somewhere, I'll never see it again. Disconnecting the phone service and knowing that whoever finds it can't make expensive phone calls on my bill is small comfort. What I'd really want is my phone back, with all my contacts and data intact.

Irish company Yougetitback's latest e-tag service makes that a little more likely (assuming whoever finds the phone is inclined to return it in the first place). Once you've subscribed, you get an e-tag that's installed as an application on your cell phone or PDA. If you lose the device, just go to the Yougetitback website to activate the e-tag, and that'll trigger a wallpaper that locks the device's functions, so that it can only be used to contact Yougetitback's 24-hour call center.

For sure, the e-tag makes it easy for whoever finds the device to return it. Finders even get a €20 Yougetitback gift pack for their trouble. And there's no compromising the device owner's identity, since the company will act as the middleman to get the device back to the owner, unless the latter chooses to contact the finder directly. If whoever finds the device doesn't want to return it, I suppose the Yousenditback application renders the device useless, so there's not much point in hanging onto it (hopefully they won't just chuck it into the nearest trash bin).

PC Magazine reports that the e-tag will be available for individual customers in the US after April for a fee of $9.99 for three years of service.

Zipel Cullinan refrigerators from Samsung

zipelcullinan_refrigerator.jpg

Even though the detailed technical specs and pricing of the recently launched Zipel Cullinan refrigerators from Samsung are not yet available, it's obvious that this product is aiming for nothing less than opulence.

With a luxurious wood finish (accomplished by using a wood-like synthetic material called EverMax) and 7 sensors to make sure that the food stays fresh longer, the refrigerator has been named “Cullinan” as an allusion to the biggest diamond ever found. That said, I would have expected a refrigerator series named after diamonds to have something other than a wooden finish...wouldn’t you? Well, apart from the finish, the other features being flaunted are its easy door opening and Touch Light Handle, details of which are as yet unavailable. And no, the cute looking models shown in the picture do not come included with the package.

I wonder if Samsung is aware of the fact that the original Cullian diamond had a defective black spot right at the center and is rumoured to have resulted in the death of the diamond cutter when it was finally split into two pieces. Well, I guess all luxury comes with its share of woes. We have to wait to find out about this one as the current availability is only for the Korean market.

Laptop shade for outdoor typing

compshade-open.jpg

Nevermind that the rest of your body is exposed to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, the important thing here is that you're able to see what's on your laptop screen. This patented Comp shade may look ridiculous, but it forms a 9" deep privacy screen and "viewing tunnel" that reduces glare and makes 10" to 17" displays more viewable in direct sunlight.

It attaches to laptop lids and collapses flat to just 3/8" high, too, so it should easily fit into your current computer case. Available now for about $33.

You could also just sit under a big shady tree for free.

ErgoBoard Pro Keyboard with USB Ports

Belkinkeyboard.jpg

Belkin, known for its quality electronics and networking solutions, has developed a very strange looking split-key keyboard that promises to eliminate wrist strain, by positioning your arms in the most natural posture for working on your computer. Try it -- put your arms down on any flat surface and your hands position themselves at slight inward angles toward each other for increased comfort.

At first, I was afraid that there would be a steep learning curve but I'm finding it very intuitive . I like the integrated, contoured wrist rest and the tactile feel and response of the keys. With QuietType technology and durable, rubber membrane, it's not only quiet but the keystroke response is superior to my old keyboard.

It also features 2 built-in downstream USB ports (100mA) and I can use all the ports I can get, with all the electronics charging on my desk , including a pair of MP3 sunglasses from Oakley.

It's the best $39.99 you'll ever spend.

Light up those circuit boards

CircuitBoard_StandingLamp.jpg

Where do old circuit boards go after the technology they powered has become obsolete? If they're lucky, they get recycled into arresting pieces of home decor, like this circuit board standing lamp. The concept is inspired in its simplicity - just surround each bulb with circuit boards to cast a soft glow that's nonetheless got that modern edge. Every circuit board is different, of course, so no two lamps are exactly the same.

At $900 from Uncommon Goods, this lamp doesn't come cheap, even though I'd feel good that it's made from materials that aren't biodegradable and would otherwise sit in a landfill for centuries to come. A less daunting option might be the circuit board table lamps for $220-$280, but I think the standing lamp brings a much stronger accent to a room.
