Arkhippo iPhone Case Concept is as Fat as a Hippo
I was using my iPhone the other day and thought that it was just too thin and svelte to be of any real use. What I want is a case that makes it so fat and bulky that the brick phone my dad had in 1990 would make fun of its weight problem.

Juicy Couture Bear Speakers Are Sadly Appealing to the Women in My Household
I was all ready to make fun of these Mini Bear Speakers from Juicy Couture when my wife and 5-year-old daughter walked in.

An iPad placed on top of the pyramid projects three separate images, and each image is reflected in varying intensities on each of the three exposed sides of the pyramid, so that when you go around and look at the other sides, it’s like you’re viewing the other sides of the object being displayed as well.
