This cute Veilleuse d`Orient clip-on lamp from Tsé & Tsé Associées won’t be very bright, but that’s not the point. The lamp is a nightlight that will illuminate your darkened room with a warm glow thanks to its special moon and star filament bulb.
I have long though that offering up a major OS like the Chrome OS from a major company like Google, and then finding it had issues with the operation of something as basic as the trackpad meant someone needed to be fired.
Leave it to the wacky Japanese gadget makers to come up with a camera that doesn’t look like a camera at all. Instead, this digital camera looks like a cat.
Designed by Japan’s Powershovel and Scandanavian designer Lisa Larson, the Necono digital camera not only looks like a little stripey cat, he’s got tiny magnetic feet, so you can hide him in inconspicuous locations and snap pictures.
While the cat doesn’t have a built-in LCD monitor, it does have a self-timer and interval modes which can grab unattended photos of whatever it may see out of it’s cat’s eyes.

The Kindle – or any eBook reader that uses E-Ink for that matter – is great for reading in bright light, because you won’t get glare or reflections on the screen. On the other hand, it’s not great for reading in a dimly lit area, which is why Amazon sells official Kindle leather covers with a built-in LED light.
Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor has been on the air for over a year now, and it’s high time for a replica of his sonic screwdriver to be made. Just like the Doctor changes bodies when he regenerates, the same thing happens to his tech.
The iPad 2 was just announced this week and it’s interesting to see it compared to the other tablets that are currently on the market. GeeksAreSexy compares the iPad 2 to the Motorola Xoom, the Samsung Sliding PC 7, and the Notion Ink Adam.
I like my iPhone and if I could do my job from anywhere using the iPhone, I would. This must be what drove some geeks at a chocolate maker in San Francisco to have an app developed that allows them to control all essential factory and lab functions using the iPhone.
