Find out if you're a Carbon Hero

CarbonHero.jpg

If Andreas Zachariah's Carbon Hero personal carbon calculator becomes popular, there'll be no excuse for anyone not to know their carbon footprint anymore. The keychain-sized device tracks a user's movements through a signal and uses the information to identify the person's likely transport modes and hence his or her carbon footprint. Although it is currently configured to work only in the UK, it's not limited to calculating just transportation on foot or in a car -- it also incorporates information for 1,000 airports worldwide.

Once Carbon Hero starts recording the data, it can be downloaded at any time to a cell phone or PC. Then you can calculate how much carbon you've used and the amount of credits that need to be purchased to offset the amount used. Talk about getting immediate feedback on exactly how carbon-friendly one's movements have been for the day ...

Back it up: Seagate portable hard drive

seagate-freeagent.PNG

If you've ever lost your data, you know the mantra by heart. Back it up. I have a relatively low-tech home, no sexy servers pumping out that sweet ambient lullaby we all know so well. I'm able to survive without servers because I keep my data backed up, and the new Seagate FreeAgent Go portable hard drive is a great buy for anyone who doesn't keep a server in their home.

Well-designed, and Mac and Windows compatible, FreeAgent Go is lightweight (6 oz) and small (4x5 inches, less than 1 in think). It comes in three sizes (80, 120, and 160 GB). Simple to use, there are two USB connectors (data transfer and power-sharing from your computer).

If you haven't had that moment where your motherboard forsakes you, FreeAgent Go gives you a great excuse to start practicing wise technique.

Back it up. That's all I'm sayin'. Need convincing? Check out Robert Scoble or Beta News most recent posts on Seagate.

Price: 89.99 for the 80GB model at Amazon (Amazon carries other sizes as well).

Pomegranate Madness

Pomegranate-Composite-3.jpg

A few months ago, after a lunch meeting with some folks from Microsoft to preview Windows Mobile 6, our esteemed editor-in-chief, Mia, and I went on a midtown Manhattan shopping stint. During this little trek, Mia introduced me to Missha, a Korean retailer of skin care products that focuses on high quality products without the high cost of extravagant packaging or advertising factored in. While there, I pick up a new product, a pomegranate body cleanser, as I was intrigued by its purported anti-oxidant properties.

That’s when it all began. My new found obsession with pomegranate body washes started that very day. I don’t know why. I don’t know where. I just know that I decided I had to search out and test them all.

Toy puppy literally grows and knows your name

puppy-grows.jpg

What do you call an electronic toy puppy that grows to full size and learns your name, its own name, and various activities? Why, Puppy Grows & Knows Your Name, of course!

Despite the shortage of creativity in the naming department, this plush pooch by Fisher-Price honestly grows (from unknown to unknown dimensions) within a week and can be personalized using the supplied software. What's even freakier is that once the dog is full grown, it can be "reset" to puppyhood over and over again.

Not the best toy to teach a child the natural cycle of life, but pretty nifty for just $50.

Via Shiny Shiny.
