PSPictogram

In an effort to make the PSP a symbol of iconic status, here comes the PS Pictogram Series X Porter bag and wallet line. While it is very cool that most of these products provide a safe environment for transporting your PSP without the fear of a dreaded scratched screen due to your car keys, it is just a bit odd seeing the PSP button layout used as an external design mark a la Louis Vuitton. The one that is most interesting to us is the PSP Case, which is actually a belt holster - stylin’. The price on items in this line? Ridiculous. For example, the above tote is 18900 Yen. That would be about $175 USD, also known as $75 less than a PSP.

CellpodCell phones with cameras are great. You can take a quick snapshot where ever you are and of almost anything you desire. One thing that really isn’t possible with cell phone cameras – taking a good image of yourself. Sure you could have someone take the picture for you, but what about those times when there isn’t anyone around to take the picture for you? That’s where Cellpod comes to save the day. Cellpod is a pocket sized tripod for your cell phone which can be attached via the belt clip button or with an included attachment. This cell phone accessory will set you back $24.99 and available in black or “Edge glow” blue.

DescriptionIO Data has introduced a pen with a USB drive inside. The pen is available in five colors and in 32 MB and 128 MB versions. The pens are refillable using Pilot ink refills, and the USB connector is covered, when not in use, by a cap. While at first this seems like a great idea, I don’t know. How often do you misplace your pen? I’m looking for one now.

DescriptionThis was made because we all drive Bentley’s, wear Armani suits, and eat at only the finest dining establishments.  At the foolhardy price of 35 G’s this gold and diamond encrusted PSP will do absolutely nothing special that the regular one cant do. Actually, it will definitely get you more chicks. As an added bonus: people won’t think your childish for playing video games - just fashionable.

iPod Camera ConnectorThe Apple iPod Camera Connector has shown up on Apple’s store for $30, and should ship in 1-3 weeks. It’s also the first official picture we’ve seen of the device that lets you plug your camera directly into an iPod photo. It’s not much to look at, but we’ll see how this goes over in a few weeks. This one is compatible with all iPod photo units.

DescriptionThe RM-11 remote from ABIT uses the µGuru connection which is now present on most ABIT mainboards to give you access to features other remote solutions can only dream of. Sure, you can control your media center PC for things like selecting activities, pumping up the volume, and viewing media - but the RM-11 goes a few steps further. Connected to that odd little red connector on your ABIT mainboard, the RM-11 then has the capability to control the settings of your mainboard through the µGuru software. Imagine using this with your media PC in your living room. Clock your PC down and enjoy a movie. If you want to game, use the remote to overclock the PC without even touching the keyboard. But the ABIT guys haven’t stopped there, they’ve clearly had a good long think about what a replacement remote needs to do, and have built in the ability for the RM-11 to replace all your remotes in one swoop. On the back of the unit is a small receiver which allows the remote to learn the codes should it not have your particular brand in its database of thousands of codes. When not in use, the RM-11 resides in a stylish cradle through which it can download new updates and profiles for use, meaning you will only have to perhaps program it once, if at all, and it’ll look after itself from then on.

Description

Apparently, some iPod shuffle accessories can be used to protect more than just your Apple MP3 player. Case in point: the iSmoke shuffle. Big enough to hold three cigarettes perfectly around your neck, and cool enough to wear with your earbuds.

(Thanks Antman!)

DescriptionThe PodGear ShuffleStation reminds me of the Altec Lansing inMotion iPod speakers. Basically, you sit the iPod shuffle on the based provided on the ShuffleStation, and the two stereo speakers play the music from the shuffle. Very simple.
