PT from MAKEzine and FlashEnabled has put together a mini-review of Spark Fun’s new rotary mobile phone. I’ve seen some hack projects similar to this, but this is the first commercially available one we’ve come across. I really do miss the old fashioned phones, and once a handset like this comes out that’s a bit cheaper I’ll go buy one for my desk at work. Ideally someone will make a commercially available Bluetooth version of this so it can just act as a headset for the mobile phone left in my bag.
I recently bought another iPod to replace my Zen Micro and had to find a way to get the music to play through my car stereo. In my previous car I had a line in installed into the jack, but with my new Volkswagen, there is no easy way to do that without buying an expensive adapter. After doing a fair bit of research I decided to get the Monster iCarPlay iPod wireless transmitter and after a couple of days with it I’m pretty impressed. Check out our full review after the jump!
One of the greatest innovations to come to the computing market in years just got a bit better! A little over a year ago DiscHub launched their fantastic disc management system. DiscHub just launched the second version of their product and I have had the pleasure of reviewing the improvements. Check out the full review after the jump.
Google is is just about everywhere these days with their search engine and Gmail. Why not give them even more real estate using your desk? Check out the Google Icon Vase Speaker. On sale now at the Google Store for $30.75, the dark metallic blue speaker hooks up easily enough through your USB port.
Many computer speakers have a rather grim look and too many wires, so consider this sound alternative: a single 2-way surround sound speaker with innovative audio lens technology, a tweeter tuned for clarity. The speaker is powered by a single USB plug (no adapter required), and the clever on/off knob at the top emits an orange LED glow when it’s on.

These shirts are totally off the hook. Now your iPod Shuffle can be PART of your outfit, not just a stylish accessory. The iShirt has a magnetic clasp specially made to allow you to firmly attach an iPod Shuffle to the shirt as the “i” in “iShirt,” showing everyone your MP3 player of choice. PodShirts also offers a new version with a Lego-style brick man (the star of their PodBrix accessory line featuring mini figurines to keep your iPod company) emblazoned on the shirt, upholding your iPod Shuffle for the world to see, and for your listening pleasure.

Aww yeah, Sony is finally getting down with the fact that they sell a portable video game device, and not an iPod. Proof? Well, they are about to drop black earbuds and a black remote control on the PSP accessory scene. If you remember, we complained about the white accessories when we told you about all the PSP’s negatives. Also, they will soon be releasing an external battery charger. Obviously, it isn’t practical to remove the PSP battery whenever you want to recharge it, but it looks like a nice place to keep a spare juiced. Look for both items soon.

Third party accessories for any product are mostly, by default, pretty bad in my opinion. Usually it feels like companies are trying to piggyback on the success of the popularity of the products that manufacturers work hard to come up with and market. That being said, Nyko has recently brought the iTop to the table. The draw here is that you can relocate the iPod’s functions to the top of the unit so that you don’t need to take it out of your pocket to access the click wheel. How does it work? Check out the full review after the jump.
As you can see, this watch only has a minute hand. Upon closer glance, you will also see that the numbers aren’t in the correct place. Truth be told, I think this Gerald Charles A-Evolution watch rocks. Basically there is a windows at the top in which the number of the hour appears, while the minute hand rotates as normal. So the time on the watch at the left is about 1:46. Definitely a cool conversation piece - at least for those that like to stare at your wrist.

Who says the Xbox is a computer in a box disguised at a video game system? Apparently, Brando’s shop does. So go ahead, and buy this: unplug the keyboard in front of you, unplug your mouse, plug this adapter in, plug your keyboard, then plug in your mouse. Now get to fragging.
I can tell you that portable usb drives can be quite convenient. They fit right in your pocket and hold a decent amout of storage space. I can also tell you that growing up Swiss Army knives were very handy to have around. Need a toothpick, scissors, nail clipper, corkscrew? I’d whip out my SAK and go to town. For $69.99 , not only is this defenitly a cool way to display your drive in public, it has a built in ballpoint pen and LED light. Disguised as a knife, you’re bound to see longer lines at airports.
