The YUBZ Retro Handset for Mobile Phones is the new chic way to talk at home, in the office and out on the streets!
To use the Retro Handset you will simply plug our accessory into your headphone output of the mobile device. In saying this, if your mobile phone does NOT have a headphone output port then it will not pair with our handset.
With the Boxee Box ($229.99) you have the freedom to watch what you want. It’s thousands of TV shows ready to watch, instantly. It’s tons of free movies, Hollywood blockbusters, and critically acclaimed films. It’s web-only videos from Funny or Die or College Humor. It’s your videos, your Pandora and Facebook feeds somewhere they’ve never been before – your HDTV: organized, simplified and enjoyed from the comfort of your couch in 1080p. No keyboard or mouse required. For serious!
The Kensington KeyFolio Pro provides a high-performance keyboard optimized for the touch typist. Built-in Bluetooth technology delivers wireless operation and one button set-up. A multi position stand holds your iPad 2 in place while the rotatable frame offers landscape and portrait use. Optimized for travel and in-case use, this lightweight and compact design protects your iPad 2 from wear and scratches. Camera openings allows for front and back camera use.
Nest ($14.95) is the ideal place to rest your iPad. Either horizontally where the rubber lining cushions the backside, or vertically where the hidden cradle slides out and holds it in place. The always useful Nest is a compact solution that is an unobtrusive asset on any desk, next to a laptop or bedside table. When not in use, it blends into any environment as it cradles your keys, USB and other small necessities. Nest is a harmonious balance between style, practicality and value. This multipurpose product has heaps to discover and offer. It is compatible with iPad and iPad 2.
The Fujifilm X10 ($599.95) digital camera feature a new larger 2/3-inch 12-megapixel EXR CMOS sensor and a bright, high-definition Fujinon F2.0 wide-angle to F2.8 telephoto, 4x manual zoom lens (28-112mm) with a proprietary Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating) that produces superb image quality from edge to edge.
Watch as the Desk Pets Tankbot ($19.99) navigates without bumping into most objects. You can recharge it with the USB flip out connector. And, it features smart phone control. Just download the free app online and insert the supplied iDeskPet Universal Remote into the headphone jack to remote control Tankbots and all other Desk Pets products.
There are few objects which can cost so little yet affect your life so significantly. This rechargeable mini speaker ($20) will make you wonder how you ever put up with the tiny speaker inside your iPhone, and it’s very affordable price compared to the Jawbones and FoxLs. A good pair of speakers or headphones makes a world of difference… especially when you realize that your 5.1 home theater system won’t fit in your go-bag.
Unit Portables fills both functional needs, as well as being really good looking. The Unit Portables System is based on a clever numerical system where each unit has its own number. A unit is by definition each bag, pouch or any other object within the Unit Portables brand.
Unit 01 ($110) is a durable and fashionable shoulder bag developed for 13? or 15? laptops. The shoulder bag is made of high quality materials and sports a minimal design.
Harnessing exotic materials and formulas that are untouchable in the industry, the Burton Method ($1499) fuses rocker and camber with high-end precision for a ride that seemingly hovers down the mountain.
Thanks in part to a carbon and wood core, the insanely light Method has the pop to handle park and half-pipe riding but enough give for mellow runs on groomed slopes. It’s the best all-around snowboard on the market.
What do Apple CEO Steve Jobs, comedian Chris Rock, prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, the story developers at Pixar films, and the Army Chief of Strategic Plans all have in common? Bestselling author Peter Sims found that all of them have achieved breakthrough results by methodically taking small, experimental steps in order to discover and develop new ideas. Rather than believing they have to start with a big idea or plan a whole project out in advance, trying to foresee the final outcome, they make a series of little bets about what might be a good direction, learning from lots of little failures and from small but highly significant wins that allow them to happen upon unexpected avenues and arrive at extraordinary outcomes.
