USB Penguin Flash Drives Not Just for Linux Users
While the flightless, aquatic avian may have come to symbolize the Linux operating system, Windows and Mac users don’t have to feel left out thanks to these fun penguin USB flash memory drives.

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams
The guys from online shop MyVirtualZone just tipped me off to these little playthings. The appropriately named Laser Top has a little laser beam that projects out of the side as you spin it around. While I actually think the effect of the LEDs and the laser are pretty cool when its spinning, I think that the music that plays as it goes is about as ridiculous as it gets.
