Chocolaty USB Drive

I think for those who works with the computer a lot, this would be something that they wanna get.  Afterall, working doesn’t mean that you cannot have fun right.  My rv towing friend, has his towing machine all dressed up too.. so i’m just taking a piece outta his book.  Very affordable.. one can get this as low as $15 online. This very cute chocolaty bar shaped drive comes in 1gb to 4 gb and it’s good for both guys and gals. Comes in bubble yum shape too.. i heard.

Sparkly Mic

Dreaming to be a star may not be so hard afterall, when you have these sparkly mic  – hahah!!  I have seen folks spending tons of money on accessories to make themselves look like sports car racer, so it didn’t surprised me when one of my karaoke friends came in with one of this Swarovski crystal mic.  How much do you think it cost..??  definitely not cheap because a small lil’ pendant cost about $85.  But one can opt for the skin version that cost less than $50, I heard – so those aspiring singers or wanna-be stars – look out for these sparkly mics .. i also heard that someone in Japan does this professionally for movie stars in Hollywood.

Palm Size Portable Printer

The girlfriend was looking for a portable printer to bring along with her when she is traveling.  For what i really don’t know but i found this palm size portable printer for her fancy if she so wish to show off – i kid.  But truth be told, she need the most high tech gadget even the ellipticals that she bought seems to be more stylish than anyone’s i know.

This portable printer is not only stylish – it is way too small for a printer – so we all know this isn’t gonna get you – your 4 by 6 pictures.  Nevertheless, it’s still pretty cool to buy, comes in black, blue and printer.  Did i also tell you this is from Dell..??  it weighs only 8 oz, so you can pretty much carry it in your handbags and even your cosmetic pouch if you so choose to and it’s only at US$99 from Dell of course. But be warned it works with a Li-ion battery and only produces 15 prints per charge at 55 seconds each.  Use with a Bluetooth or a USB A Connector.

Its basic function includes:

  • One touch printing.
  • Reprinting of one single photo in multiple numbers.
  • Water resistant prints, long lasting and unfading.
  • Makes use of Zero-Ink Technology, which is great for the environment as there is little or no waste.
  • Wireless mobility, so you can print anywhere with the use of Bluetooth.

Pink XBox 360 Controller

Can’t find any pink controllers for the xbox 360? .. no worries.. try doing it yourself….  and apparently someone did it already.  I was looking for some health insurance lead and ended up looking for gadgets instead.  For those who are trying to get their g/fs or wife into gaming so that she wouldn’t be nagging at you all the time .. while you play, this is what you can do.  Disassembled a XBox controller and  paint it with a bright pink spray paint and then put them back together and wrap it up for your gf or wife.

If you’re thinking about taking on a project like this, it is recommended that you first sand the pieces down with 1000 grit sandpaper. Then, coat the painted pieces with two coats of primer, two coats of paint (He recommends Krylon Fusion or Duplicolor) and one coat of varnish.

Painting Made Easy

I don’t know about other women.. but painting a room can be darn daunting.  Just thinking of mixing the paint with oil or thinner .. ahhh..! that already gives me a headache.  Of course, shopping is another matter for us women and even buying a cradlesoft mattress is easy peasy for us.

So when i saw this on Dulux home page, I was very excited… that means i don’t need to wait for the spouse to paint my room.  So if you are looking to repaint your study or even your laundry room, the Dulux Paintpod Compact is the way to go.  It’s portable and sits on top of a paint pack and the pump is battery operated.. and brings out the paint to the roller for application to your wall.  They do have a bigger size paint pod.. for a bigger room – i supposed.. and comes in many colors.  So no excuses you ladies out there.

Dirt Devil Kone

Does it really work..??  I need one that works.. the dustbusters that I had gotten before never seems to do a good job at all.  Disappointed is the least to say.. but the waste of good money.  The Dirt Devil Kone is definitely stylish..  but does it do its job..??  I need one bad..!!

The Dirt Devil Kone has good reviews.. and at $44, it is said to be  perfect for small clean-ups. And because it’s wireless and rechargeable, you’ll never have to deal with cord fiddling ever again.

Old Flash Drive For Cheap Security

After googling for ways to keep my laptop safe for hours, I think I need some eye creams for my tired eyes.  But i found a really cheap way from Unplugged to do it and not difficult either.  With a USB flash drive and just any flash drive .. in fact a cheap old one is good enough, one can download a program called – LaptopAlarm – a free software. Fasten a neck strap to your old USB key and then fasten the other end of the strap to a table.  Plug in the USB key into the USB port of your laptop and lock the laptop by pressing the Windows logo key and L key together.

And this is what happens when someone tries to steal your laptop .. while you are not looking or working on it.  It would cause a loud siren sound to notify you that someone is trying to steal  your laptop or removing it completely from the desk.  Plus the software – LaptopAlarm sends and alert to your mobile phon.  Cool or not..??  Free and easy to use.. and gives you some peace .. without fearing to leave your workstation .. to use the washroom.  I’m getting it right now.. as i speak.
