We are constantly losing our keys to the point that we have to put them on a hook so we always know that they are not in the refrigerator, between cushions or lurking somewhere under the bed. Now there is a solution with the Security Guard Keyfinder. The retro device attaches to your keychain and the next time your keys disappear, just put your lips together and blow. He will let you know where they are hiding after your whistle. Own your own guard for £7.99 (~$13.00.)

If you are in the market for the Wii MotionPlus, just make sure you stay away from GameStop. Why? Because they are charging you $5 more than any other retailer we’ve found that sells the device. Nintendo lists the Wii MotionPlus at a suggested retail price of $19.99. While it is just a suggestion, retails chains typically follow the suggested price. However, GameStop is charging $24.99 for the device. Save yourself $5, and buy the Wii MotionPlus at Amazon, cool?

We open the item up in this episode of Unboxing Live!, and whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone who works with video, or even transcodes video for use on their iPhone or other portable device.

We dig that that there is plenty of hype around the new Star Trek movie, although we doubt the next generation can equal some of its predecessors. Still it has inspired lots of new accessories, including this iPhone case mod, which is actually an old Star Trek pin glued to the back. Hmm. We wonder if we attached our old tribble to the back of our phone, would it reproduce?

We were big fans of the original Elgato Turbo.264 hardware encoder, so when we heard that the company had released an updated version, called the Turbo.264 HD, we pretty much ordered one immediately. The product promises to “quickly convert any video into a format that you can play anywhere and share with anyone” and supports HD camcorders, AVCHD, and direct upload to YouTube. We are gonna tear into this one, and report back with our thoughts. Meantime, any questions on the device?
