Zibra just announced their new Open It! tool, aimed at helping all of us who open packages with any sort of frustrating regularity. The Open It! offers five methods of busting into those packages, saving yourself a lot of anxiety and injury:
- Cut It: Long cutting jaws cut quickly through sealed clamshell packaging
- Snip It: Hardened, precision ground steel blades snip through zip ties and twist ties
- Slice It: Slices CDs and DVDs and the auto-retract system prevents blade from being exposed when not in use
- Unscrew It: Removable screwdriver for easy use and convenient storage
- Pop It: Bottle cap opener is cleverly built into jaws
The best part is that this thing is only $9.99 at places like Wal-Mart, Michaels, OfficeMax, Office Depot and others, which means we pretty much wanna get one immediately. They’re available in green and orange colors.

With the Wolfgang S Birdhouse designer Dennis Nino Clasen has killed two, ahem, birds with one stone. Not only does it allow you to trick your neighbors in to thinking you are watching their every move but it also puts an aesthetically-entertaining roof over the heads of your feathered friends. While it may not keep your neighbor from tossing their raked-up leaves over the fence and into your yard for very long, it will provide a little extra ambiance for the exterior of your house during the spring and summer months.
Do you feel like you’ve maxed out your emo/meta cred? Does your 3 wolves howling shirt sneer at you and your oh-so-last-week iPhone? Well fear not, my bespectacled flannel-clad hipster ‘friend’, the iRetrophone has the cure for what ails you. That is, if what ails you is your ability to walk anywhere instead of being tethered to one spot in particular… which is kind of the point of owning a cel phone, yeah? Or do I sound like someone’s grandpa? Is the next meta-craze immobilizing one’s cel phone? If so, then sign me up!!! I’ve been yearning for an excuse to get my tape-driven answering machine out of my attic. Don’t worry, the handset works too so you can cradle it against your left ear while smoking your corn-cob pipe and twirling your horn-rimmed glasses, Wheezer-fan.

Here’s a look at GE’s LED light bulbs, which should be hitting stores sometime in the next year. What makes them special? Well, aside from the fins that you see in the image, these bulbs will last a good 17 years(!) when used for four hours per day, every day. They also distribute the light evenly, in all directions, rather than focused on one area. Most of all, they are super-efficient. The nine watt bulbs give off the same amount of light as a 40 watt incandescent bulb, so you are saving some serious power, and only replacing them two or three times in a lifetime. The downside? They’ll cost somewhere between $40-50 each. Yeah, that’s pricey for a light bulb, but did you think the future would be cheap?
