Seagate recently announced their take on Apple’s Time Machine + Time Capsule combo: an external hard drive that provides effortless automated backups. The backup device is called Replica, which is both what it makes and also what it is.
Want to know who keeps on stealing your drink from the office fridge? The drink that you so clearly labeled with your full name along with a fingerprint of your right thumb to eliminate all ambiguity as to the ownership of said drink?
Battery life is always an issue with portable gaming systems, especially with the PSP’s power-sucking UMD drive. You can always buy a second battery, but what if you also own a DS? Well if you own both then I guess you have enough money to buy a second battery for that one too.
But if you’re looking for a cheap alternative, then you might want to check out one of Deal Extreme’s latest offerings: a portable rechargeable power pack that can be used to charge both the PSP and the DS as well as GameBoy Advance SPs, for the low low price of $12.19
Unlike the other Lego-inspired audio gear we’ve featured here, this LEGO boombox actually bears the Danish toy company’s stamp. It’s quite cheap too, at $40. Who says authentic stuff has to be expensive?
The LEGO boombox has an analog radio and CD player, but you can connect other audio players via its 3.5-mm
Trekkies like candies too. This limited edition, 8-piece Star Trek Pez gift set is further proof that Trekkies aren’t so different from you and me and therefore must not be shunned, no matter how obsessed they are with made up languages and men that wear headbands over their eyes.
The set features the USS Enterprise and its crew: Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, Chekhov, Hulu, Boxee, and Xubuntu.
The first thing I do when I do when I wake up after a night of heavy drinking is sleep again. Or massage my temples and groan. Alcohol either makes the world spin faster or it makes me more sensitive to the earth’s rotation.
We’ve already featured several quirky clocks from Karlsson, but these two designs grabbed my attention because they’re unique but still modest. Karlsson calls them table clocks, but I think they’ll be more at home on bookshelves.
Very nice, especially the use of book spines for the nine o’clock and three o’ clock positions.
Light up all of grandma’s 98 birthday candles at once with this giant lighter! Or surprise the hell out of anyone who asks if you’ve got a light.

If you have a small computer desk, it would be better if you used a trackball instead of an ordinary mouse. Says the guy who still uses a 3-inch mouse. Anyway. Apparently trackballs are very comfortable and can greatly reduce the strain on your wrist.
Brando, sellers of some of the weirdest stuff I have ever seen in my life, are cutting back on absurdity with their latest gadgets. For example, their USB hub is functional and versatile. But still a bit weird.
Brando calls it the “USB 3-in-1 Rota-Rota Combo Hub”.
Italian pizzerias are outraged at the Let’s Pizza vending machine, due to be released in Italy this summer. Let’s Pizza apparently does to pizza what Nissin did to noodles: make it possible to enjoy one in 3 minutes.
At the ongoing Game Developers Conference in California, Zeebo Inc. unveiled the Zeebo, a video game console for people in the “middle class” of developing countries. The Zeebo will initially be offered in Brazil this July via a partnership with Brazilian manufacturer Tectoy.
The concept behind myKeyO‘s Keyboard Organizer is so simple it’s brilliant, turning an otherwise ordinary USB computer keyboard into a personal storage.
myKeyO takes advantage of the fact that today’s technology allows for very thin keyboards.
Nowadays, beta males are considered cool guys. There’s Chuck. There’s Leonard and Sheldon. There’s Justin Long in Die Hard 4.0. There’s Dwight Schrute. Okay maybe not Dwight. But you get it right? And when something is marketed as cool, you can bet your neighbor’s family that the media and the market will milk the living crap out of that thing.
This fake security cam has several fauxthentic features that will deter would-be thieves.
