Clearly, revealing the Courier tablet prototype was not enough for Microsoft, as they have topped themselves once again. This time, the company produced their skinniest keyboard to date, and this Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 is totally wireless.
There is no Bluetooth dongle included, so make sure your computer has Bluetooth built-in before making the purchase. The keyboard is powered by 3 AAA batteries, while the numeric keypad takes just one AAA. Both will be available in October, $90 for the combo, and $45 for just the number pad, if that’s all you want.

It would appear that Plantronics Discovery 975 has gone for the classy crowd rather than the typical guys who just want the cheapest Bluetooth headset available.
With noise cancellation, wind protection, a nice carrying case, and loopless ear fitting, it looks like it would adorn the ear of the highest of classes, while maintaining the semi-affordable price of $130. You can pick one up over at Amazon.

Okay, we get it, watching colors change on a lamp is supposed to be therapeutic, but aren’t these soothing treatments supposed to get us away from our technology-overtaken lives? Modula doesn’t seem to think so, as their therapy lamp allows you to manually change the colors with a Bluetooth-enabled, device like a mobile phone. Yeah, I don’t know exactly how it works either, but if you want to find out for yourself, feel free to lay down $281 for it. It might be more expensive than a relaxing fish tank, but at least it will have less maintenance.
Acura is looking to upgrade the experience for customers by adding a few oft-requested features as standard, starting with their 2010 lineup.
