Flexible hangers holds difficult to hang clothes

bumps-be-gone.jpg

Why do all hangers look alike even though clothes come in all kinds of crazy shapes? Sleeveless tops (especially ones made of slipper fabric) and wide-necked tops and dresses are especially difficult -- they slip off and end up on the floor with the dust mites.

These flexible hangers are such an obvious idea - hangers that you can twist into different shapes to accommodate your clothing. $14 for a set of 6 from Amazon.

New ergonomic mouse - Wow-Pen Joy

wow-pen-joy.jpg

This new ergonomic mouse, called the "Wow-Pen Joy" (which Gizmodo says possesses no wow, no pen, and no joy) is set to be released in North American and Sweden next month, by Korean company WOW Technology, makers of digital pens and ergonomic mice (including a pen-type mouse, which I suppose is the origin of the name). Aesthetics aside, I can see where the shark fin shape of the mouse would be a more natural fit for the hand, as well as the upright position which doesn't force you to twist your wrist downward as with traditional mice. For $30, I'd be willing to give it a try.

iPhone apps expected to come to iTunes store

iphone-apps.jpg

I've been holding my breath for news of the release of iPhone applications that will offer some of the smartphone features I lost when I gave up my Treo (which I was perhaps a bit hasty in doing). For starters, I'd settle for a simple password keeper (there are web apps for this, but I don't want to send secure information into the big wide uncertainty of the web, and I've found that I'm too impatient to wait for pages to load). After that, something that lets me create and revise documents would be nice, and a program that syncs with Quicken.

Wired predicts that the release of Apple's iPhone software development kit will be followed by iTunes become a software store for the huge community of developers that will arise. Apparently, some developers are a little worried about the loss of control of their products that will come with having iTunes as the primary or only distribution vehicle. For iPhone users, there are obvious advantages to being able to go to one shop to browse through all (or most) offerings. While I enjoy browsing different stores for most categories of products, I've never enjoyed that process when purchasing applications for my smartphones (though I suppose exorbitant pricing may change my view on that).
