Virago Laptop Bag

You know, recently I have noticed that electronic devices, along with their accessories, really are targeted towards men. I mean, so much so, that a woman has to do a hardcore search if she wants to find something to suit her personal taste, rather than a black nylon bag. We felt that, with Valentine’s Day and all, we might focus our attention exclusively on the women (for just a moment!), and introduce the Virago line of laptop bags. What’s cool about it? For starters, they look like a modern purse or handbag rather than a miniature black suitcase. The different bags fit laptops from 10-inches all the way up to 17-inches, and they will also be putting out iPod cases soon as well. Now we just need a place that specializes in girly PC case mods.

(Thanks quesara!)

iattireWe really thought we’d seen just about everything - we were wrong.  We came across iAttire, a company devoted to outfitting…your iPod.  Their selection ranges from the feminine to the masculine, from the cute to the absurd, and there’s a costume to fit any iPod - even the Shuffle and Nano.  These aren’t the silicone wetsuits you’re used to - these are actual, honest-to-goodness costumes for the iPod, including a whole line of “Valentines Day” themed outfits like a chiffon negligee, boxer shorts, or even a corset. 

The rest of the line covers just about every fashion you’d think to, er, dress your iPod in, from Pop Diva to Fairy Princess.  And for the boys (is your iPod a boy or a girl?) there are a variety of manly disguises, like the Pirate, Cowboy and even Santa Claus - and here we were, thinking the iPod madness couldn’t get any crazier.  We’ll give points for creativity and good fit, however, who’d have thought to make iPod costumes?!

The best part?  They’re planning on releasing a series of iPod Portraits painted on velvet.  Oh, the cheese of it! While my iPod is perfectly happy lounging about naked (that perverted iPod!), we’ve got to admit, iAttire has a great idea - it sure brought a smile to our faces.

SCOTTeVEST 237D

The SCOTTeVEST 237D is the updated version of the Three.0 Spring jacket that we reviewed about a year-and-a-half ago. We have been testing out the 237D in Seattle weather for much of December, and are finding that the 237D moniker - which stands for “237 days,” meaning you can wear it for 3-out-of-4 seasons per year - lives up to its name for the most part. The 237D features 33 pockets, and adds the Detachable Cargo Cache, built-in battery holders, addition magnetic enclosures, and two more pockets than the Three.0 Spring. Check out the full review after the jump.

SeV Rodeo

The SCOTTeVEST Rodeo is yet another in the 4.0 line from our favorite gadget clothing company. We have been testing out the rodeo for the past couple of weeks, and have found it to be as versatile as it is functional. It has 39 pockets of various shapes and sizes for all your gear, and has a microsuede finish. Check out the full review after the jump.

Diode WatchOur friends over at OhGizmo got their hands on a TokyoFlash Diode watch, and put up a pretty thorough review of the device, culminating with:

The point is the watch is the epitome of geek chic. It’s manly, it’s made of stainless steel, it’s got LEDs, looks unusual and attention grabbing. It doesn’t just tell the time, it makes you decipher it. The timepiece costs $150 and ships from Japan.

Being fiends for unique watches, (heck, we are giving one away in our Holiday Gift Guide!) we had to share this one. Check out the full review at OhGizmo.

This is an entry from our 2005 Holiday Gift Guide. Check it out for suggestions on what to buy your loved, liked, and hated ones this holiday season!

Description

This product really was a pleasant surprise. Most of the things we review at Gear Live are gadgets with interesting or fun gimmicks that make them must-haves or horrible failures. The thing about the SLEEPTRACKER is that it doesn’t provide anything “fun” or “cool” per se. Instead, they have developed a product that actually improves your quality of life. Waking up fully energized on a daily basis is just amazing. It is almost as if there is no lost time, and you just want to seize the day. The product did exactly what it said it would do, and because of that, it gets our highest honor. This one comes very highly recommended. Check out our full review of the SLEEPTRACKER here.

Product: SLEEPTRACKER Watch
Price: $149

SCOTTeVEST Milan

While it is expensive, the SCOTTeVEST Milan makes a huge statement that justifies its price of entry. This jacket is the top of the line in portable entertainment gear. Unlike all the gadgets you will be carrying around, this piece of technology doesn’t make you look like a geek. Instead, we received numerous compliments on how great the jacket looked at our recent Mind Camp event. Think of it as the ultimate carrying case for any portable you own. That being said, remember that we have a coupon code for 20% off all SCOTTeVEST orders through December 25th, 2005. If you spring for the Milan, that will get you $90 off with free shipping. Just head on over to the Milan product page to pick one out, and use coupon code “GEARLIVE” during checkout to get your discount. You can check out our full review here.

Product: SCOTTeVEST Milan
Price: $450 - $360 using coupon code GEARLIVE

SCOTTeVEST Rodeo

Now, if you just can’t afford the Milan, the next best thing would be the SCOTTeVEST Rodeo. It is almost a carbon copy of the slick Milan, but in walnut-colored microsuede. This one has 39 pockets, and has all of the new SCOTTeVEST 4.0 features, such as the Detachable Cargo Cache Plus, and tons of magnetic closures, as well as the patented Personal Area Network. The SCOTTeVEST Rodeo is an affordable $199 USD - or just $159 after using our coupon code during checkout.

237D


The SCOTTeVEST 237D jacket is meant to be worn 237 days out of the year. Like other SCOTTeVEST jackets, the 237D comes with tons of pockets - 33 to be exact. Like all SCOTTeVEST products that we’ve reviewed in the past, this one is built with quality standards. If you want something nice, but can’t afford the Milan or Rodeo, the 237D sells for just $159.99. Use our exclusive SCOTTeVEST coupon code “GEARLIVE” and you save $32, playing less than $130 USD. Not bad at all. The 237D is available in two colors: Stone and Olive.

SCOTTeVEST Milan Review

SCOTTeVEST truly is Technology Enabled Clothing, as the company touts. Using this philosophy, SCOTTeVEST has developed a full line of clothing specially geared toward those who need to carry multiple gadgets but never had the pockets to do so. In the past, we have taken a look at their Three.0 Spring Jacket, Hidden Cargo Shorts, TEC T-Shirt, Classic Vest, Solar Jacket, Sport Coat, and Hidden Cargo Pants. Today, we take a look at what might be their best product to date - by far. At first glance, the Milan Leather Jacket is impressive. We put it through a full review after the jump.
