An extra finger to do your dirty work

handler.jpg

How would you like an extra finger to do all (well, most) of the dirty work for you when you're in public? No more flushing toilets, touching ATM and elevator buttons, or opening doors with your own bare hands. The Handler is made of rubber and plastic and is infused with "nano silver particles which effectively kill 98% of all single-celled organisms (bacteria, viruses and fungi) on contact." You activate the Handler - which you can carry on your keychain - with a button that deploys the rubberized finger-like hook that's strong enough to pull open heavy doors. If only this antibacterial gadget could pump gas -- that's where I most fear germs.

$10.95 at Amazon.

Convert slides and negatives to digital

slide-to-digital.jpg

Just what I need to convert all those disintegrating photos from the 70s and 80s - now residing precariously in my parents' damp basement - into digital photos that my whole family can have. The Slide and Negative to Digital Picture Converter, available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $99.95, takes 35mm slides and negatives and converts them to digital images that you can crop, edit and resize with the included software. It connects to your computer via USB cable for both image transfer and power.

It beats the alternative -- taking old photos to a service to convert. With my own machine, I can also edit as I go and wipe out all those photos of me from the unfortunate decade of high-waisted jeans and shoulder-padded jackets.

iPengin speaker

iPenguin-Brando.jpg

It was inevitable wasn't it, what with the success of all the penguin movies that we'd get an iPenguin, whether we wanted one or not. But I have to admit I'm a sucker for this little guy and boy, can he dance, moving his little flippers and body to the music. Different colors light on his tummy as well.

Hook i-Penguin to your MP3 Player, i-Pod, Music Player or PC through audio jack, and i-Penguin becomes a speaker and dances according to the rhythm of the music. Besides, I needed company for my iDog and iFish.

$24.90 at Brando.

Candy-colored Sony VAIO CR series laptops

vaio-crseries-pink.jpg
SONY-Viao.jpgvaio-mouse.jpg

Sony was the first company to break the color barrier with their C and later F series laptops in brilliant hues. Now they're at it again with the CR series, which takes the color right down to the touch pad, and you can even order the optional matching mouse and matching bag. Since I'm eyeing the silvery-pink one, that might be a little too much.

Don't mistake these for fashion accessories though -- the 5.5-pound thin-and-light laptops will include Intel's latest Centrino Duo platform, with Core 2 Duo processors, integrated graphics, and an 802.11n wireless card. The 14.1-inch wide-screen display includes a 1,280x800 native resolution, and the display bezel has room for a built-in Webcam and microphone.

They are available in five fashion-forward colors --sangria, cosmopolitan, dove, indigo and black (matte finish) starting at $1,369.
Hop on over to the Sony site and pre-order one since I expect there will be a run on them when they start shipping at the end of June.

Emotibuds emoticon earbud covers

emotibud11.jpg
My favorite online boutique, Fred Flare, has just announced finalists of their "Next Big Thing" awards. Somehow, like just about everything offered at Fred Flare, all the products are ultra-cute, and have a sort of retro-modern feel without going all the way into hula dancer lamp kitsch-land. My favorite, I think, are these Emotibud earbud charms by Emotibles. The standard iPod earbuds are a pretty ordinary looking deal, and colored and bedazzled versions tend to have subpar sound, so these Emotibuds are a great option if you want to use the earbuds of your choice, but still be able to personalize them to your liking.

Motorola Mini H9 Bluetooth Headset

H9%20Headset.jpg

Hello Minimoto! After what seems like endless months of teasing, Motorola has finally released their almost-completely-in-the-ear mini Bluetooth headset.

Many sites have long told tales of the elusive (read: never released) H5 mini headset. Now after months and months of waiting, the ‘new and improved’ H9 Miniblue Bluetooth Headset has come to life.

The H9 comes with several eartips for custom-fitting to your ear canal (yes, it may take some people a bit of getting used to). It also features a charging pedestal that travels with the headset to keep the battery refreshed. The H9’s tiny size limits its talk time to a feeble 1.5 hours, but the charging pedestal allows you to constantly top off the battery in the headset, giving you up to 7.5 hours. Now we’re talking (no pun intended).

Call quality is touted to be as good as Motorola’s other Bluetooth headsets, and my brief usage so far supports this.

Prices vary greatly, so shop around. You should be able to find it from a reputable dealer online for right around $100. As an added bonus . . . the box is this crazy two-way slide thing (you have to see it) that couldn’t possibly be any cooler. Hopefully your dealer won’t have repackaged it!
