While not Yankees vs. Red Sox proportions (yet), readers of this website may have noticed a war is raging between the Floppy Diskette and the Circuit Board for retro-chic domination. There are Diskette notepads and pen/pencil holders, while the Circuit Board has countered with a photo album, Christmas ornaments, cigar holder and more. Now the Diskette has struck back, this time with a tote bag for the ladies. It’s made of black vinyl covered with 12 floppies, contains lots of pockets for your gadgetry, and measures 7.4x10.6x4.5”. Perfect for that IT-lovin’ lady in your life. We can’t wait to see what the Circuit Board comes up with next. Available for $55 USD.

Holiday traveling means (at least) two things - packing up handheld electronics to keep yourself entertained and connected, and trying to find places to stow those gadgets while they’re charging. In hotel rooms and guestrooms across the country outlets may abound, but there isn’t always a place close to the outlets to safely sit your stuff while it recharges.
Enter Kikkerland’s Portable Device Holder by Driin. The L-shaped accessory has a large hole in the top through which you plug the charger into the wall. Sit your gadget of choice on the little shelf and voila - no need to rest your precious metals (or plastics, silicones, or combinations thereof) on the floor.

The Xbox 360 Messenger Kit has been hyped for months now, and it finally hits stores on September 4, 2007. The Kit includes the much anticipated Xbox 360 Chatpad - a QWERTY keyboard accessory that snaps onto an Xbox 360 controller - along with a newly redesigned Xbox 360 headset. The new headset features a simple audio connector, with the mute and volume switch located on the wire itself - much more user friendly, and it looks better too. If you are tired of all the mundane typing that it takes to enter redeemable codes or to write quick messages to friends on the Xbox 360, this is definitely one to consider. We were able to get our hands on a Messenger Kit pre-launch, and have put up an Unboxing gallery giving you a look at both pieces of the package.
