Looks like Fossil’s line of PDA watches are going the way of the Tapwave. After several years of delays, underexposure, and just plain having a product that nobody wanted, “reliable sources” have told BargainPDA that Fossil is exiting the wrist-born PDA market. The Fossil watches came in several different wristband styles and featured either the Palm OS with 8MB of memory or a version of MSN Direct. While the idea of a wristwatch connected to organizational info may hold some promise, Fossil consistently struggled with the actual execution of the product and price-point. So, for those of you actually wearing one of these things, the unimaginable just happened – it just became even lamer.

Okay, check it. This is the coolest way to display your tech while on a jog, playing hoops, and just chilling out - it looks much better than trying to sport the corded mess that is theiPod shuffle. The Nike Timing Cuffs have a built-in time/date display, and each purchase comes with 3 interchangeable cuffs. What’s cool is that they are machine washable, and thusly, water-resistant. Too bad I don’t do anything but sit around the house all day, otherwise I would be rocking these on the tennis court

“iPod” and “baby” are two words usually used in this form, “My baby threw my iPod in the toilet,” or some variation of that. However, this clothing company is planning on changing that image. In an attempt to “iPodify” your baby, you can get these cute - and strange - onesies in 3 colors and 3 sizes. Now if only the click-wheel would pause crying until you get the bottle - that would be a great baby mod.
The folks over at SCOTTeVEST have come up with yet another piece of clothing aimed at making the tech life just a little bit easier to live. The TEC Hidden Cargo Shorts are perfect for the summer, but how well do they carry your gadgets? Find out in our review, after the jump.
A Finnish company called International Security Technology has come up with a breakthrough aimed at in home monitoring of elderly or critically ill patients. The Vivago is a wrist band with gyroscopic sensors and a transmitter than can communicate with a base station. The sensors monitor the wearers activity levels and can alert medical professionals if the wearer falls, or is acting lethargically. The Vivago also includes a panic button for emergencies. This sounds like an ideal solution for people not ill enough to require a nursing home, but unsteady and at high risk for falling. I can imagine this giving a family a great sense of security about any aging friends or relatives.
Victorinox Swiss Army, the makers of fine tools, knives, and award winning and innovative USB hard drive hybrid devices announced a stunning new digital watch today: the ST 5000. The ST 5000 features LED lighting and advanced LCD display technologies. The ST 5000 features a built in digital compass for finding true magnetic north. The watch also includes a pathfinding tool that can lock in an orientation and indicate via a 5 point direction indicator if the wearer is straying off a straight line. The ST 5000 also includes a spirit level to aide in creating level structures for those wilderness adventures. The ST 5000 will be rugged encased in a titanium case and with hardened mineral crystal for it’s face. Sadly with a feature list like this and no price listed on the press release I’m betting that if you have to ask how much this bad boy of a watch is you probably can’t afford one.

We have generally really liked the products that SCOTTeVEST thinks up and puts out there for geek consumption. It’s great to have a simple, easy way to carry all of your gear without having to carry bags or clip-ons. Recently, they released their simplest item yet - The SCOTTeVEST TEC T-Shirt. Instead of having a multitude of hidden pockets like most of the rest of their line, the SeV T-Shirt has just one pocket. It is meant to provide a means to carry around one item while lounging around or being casual. Check out our impressions after the jump.
Check out this dog, standing there feeling sheepish. All because of a few
proud dog owners want to make a point that it is unfair to ban a whole breed of dog from a location, rather than doing it on a dog-by-dog basis. So because of this, I guess the way to combat is to punish the dog by dressing them up like idiots? Really, if someone wants a poodle, they will get one - not a freaking black lab. That being said, I wouldn’t mind running into a dog dressed like this at Green Lake. It would certainly make my day. If you want to dress your dog in a similar fashion, check out the link.
