Cinq parks an extra 10-inch monitor on your laptop

Posted in monitors by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2010

Are you looking for some extra screen real estate on your laptop? Instead of upgrading to a larger laptop, why not just park another screen next to the one you already use? The Cinq is a 10-inch USB monitor that you can hang on the side of your screen, giving you some extra space.

It’s not just a screen, it also has an SD card reader attached. Sure it looks like a rear view mirror for laptops, but it could come in handy. It will be released in the third quarter of this year for $249.

The Go Plate parks your food on your beer

Posted in Kitchen Gadgets by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2009

The Go Plate parks your food on your beerAs men, we really only need a few things to be happy. Two to be exact. Food and beer. But it isn’t always easy to juggle them both. Now, thankfully you can carry both in one hand thanks to the Go Plate. A Pack of 42 will cost you $49.

They let you hold your beer and food in one hand, while your other hand is free to text, smoke, twitter, whatever. It’s a plate that fits over your bottle, cup or can. When you want a drink, just lift the plate off. Don’t be that guy who goes to take a sip and dumps all of your food all over yourself.

Google Launches Google+ Social Network

Posted in Google by Reuben Drake on June 28th, 2011

Google’s latest push into the social network arena is different than their previous attempts. It wants to take on one of the problems social networking has had from the beginning. The fact that you don’t want to share everything with everybody and you don’t want to constantly make lists of friends to share certain things with. That’s a good place to start.

Google’s new Circles service seems to take care of this problem by making those lists easy. Hangout can be seen as an always on video conference that you or your friends can join. Sparks is a service that aims to deliver fresh content on certain subjects like an RSS reader that you don’t have to set up. We will know in time how well people like it, but Google seems to have done a better job this time.


Disney launches new Social Media site

Posted in Disney by Conner Flynn on September 25th, 2010

Mickey and the gang are launching a new social media site called Disney Memories. The idea is to share your favorite memories about your experiences with Disney and its theme parks. So it is a lot of PR as well as Social media. Users can upload photos, videos, and talk about their experiences.

It should be noted that users will also be agreeing to the End User Licensing Agreement, which means that you agree to have your memories featured in the company’s Let the Memories Begin campaign. If selected your videos can appear in TV ads and be featured in Disneyworld’s Cinderella Castle and Disneyland’s It’s a Small World.

iPad and speakers get mounted on a bike

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 24th, 2010

Apple’s iPad can seemingly do anything and go anywhere. Now we have seen the tablet attached to a bike, along with speakers in front. We don’t have many details, but we do know that this guy will want to easily remove both iPad and speakers everytime he parks that bike.

That iPad cradle looks well made, but I still cringe about bumps and accidents killing the device. Anyway, it’s a cool setup. We like it.

Pepsi Dream Machine Kiosks gives points for recycled bottles

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 23rd, 2010

Pepsi and Waste Management are teaming up for the Dream Machine, a computerized recycling bin that gives out points for returned bottles. The internet-connected kiosks will be installed in stadiums, parks, and gas stations and will award recyclers redeemable points for every bottle returned.

That’s pretty cool. It’s not clear what the recycling points will be redeemable for, but it will encourage recycling in a big way and that’s always a good thing.

Michelin Smart Jumper Cables

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2010

Connecting jumper cables from one car to the other is pretty easy already, but Michelin is making it even easier. The Michelin Smart Jumper Cables are all blue. That’s because you no longer need them to be color coded even.

The circuitry inside knows exactly what is going on and can detect whether a successful complete circuit is achieved or not, and it will let you know via the LED. When a second battery is connected, it will determine the polarity automatically and switch to accomodate. No more worrying about shocks or sparks. Pretty neat.


Swivel Car Tray, juicebox not included

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2010

Tired of having your food fly everywhere after you make a sudden turn? Worry no more. You are a large human mammal who needs to eat at all times, even when behind the wheel of a two ton killing machine. Thankfully some comapnies understand this and even encourage your gluttony with new products.

The Swivel Car Tray parks in your cupholder and allows you to shovel food from it’s built in tray to your hungry Jabba mouth while you roam the commuter wastelands looking for your next caloric adventure.

Plate, spoon and glass in one hand

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2009

Plate, spoon and glass in one handDinner parties are great and all, but you don’t often have a hand free if you’re drinking and devouring some hors d’oeuvres and appetizers. That’s where Mantara comes in. It’s a great solution for keeping one of your hands free.

It has a groove to hold your wine glass, a place to secure the spoon/fork and the dish holds the appropriate proportion of food. Keep it all in one hand so you have one free to point and laugh at those who do not have a hand free. It’s like the Go plate, but for snooty types.

AirMan Tire Repair System gets you home safely

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on February 13th, 2009

AirMan Tire Repair System gets you home safelyFlat tires stink. specially if you don’t have a spare with you. You could drive home with 3 tires and a rim, but that just leads to a shower of sparks as you tear up the asphalt and ruin your rim. The AirMan Tire Repair System will fix your flat tire “at the touch of a button”.

It works by injecting some kind of sealant into the flat tire while inflating it at the same time. So it should be a useful thing to keep in your car. They claim that it’s fast and give you safe driving for 200 miles, which should be enough to get you where you need to go.

Microsoft “I’m a PC” booth outside Apple store

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on October 31st, 2008

Microsoft “I’m a PC” booth outside Apple storeI had thought, or hoped that the whole Apple/Microsoft war was deflating. Sadly it looks like Microsoft just fired the next salvo at Apple. It’s parking “I’m a PC” recording booths outside of Apple stores. The one pictured is in Birmingham, England. The booth is staffed with three Microsoft peeps who will no doubt preach at you about the awesomeness of all things Vista.

The whole deal has to be like wandering into a Jehovah’s Witness den. You know you should run, but you’re too stunned at the fact that you ran into THEM for once, instead of them coming to your house. (Or appearing on your TV) They’re swell guys and gals. They’ll preach the word and even invite you to make a short video explaining why you are a PC. The bottom line here is that we can now look forward to more ultra creepy videos of mankind proclaiming that they are PC’s, when really they’re just people we need to have a restraining order on.

Zune Player WhiteWhile no one can accurately predict how the Zune will fare this holiday season, one can guarantee that it will take a piece of the considerable market share now enjoyed by the iPod.
