Yoda Christmas lights to rock your geek tree

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on December 14th, 2008

Yoda Christmas lights to rock your geek treeThese Yoda Christmas Lights are awesome. Hang them on your tree, in your cubicle, over your bed, on your patio, hell decorate your fake lightsaber. This string of Jedi Master Christmas lights is available just in time for the holidays. Only $29.95 for 10 light-up Yodas on a 10-foot UL listed cord.

The only way it gets better is if they talked. “Naughty or nice be you?” “Judge me by my Christmas lights do you?” Your tree will suddenly be filled with ancient Jedi wisdom. And just like the movies, none of these 10 light up Yodas will tell you that Leia is your sister until you’ve already kissed her. Wise, but useless.

Apple iPod shortage for Christmas?

Posted in iPod by Conner Flynn on December 3rd, 2008

Apple iPod shortage for Christmas?We’re used to shortages during the holiday season. The Wii comes to mind. And you are probably aware of Amazon’s kindle situation. The iPod may be next. Word is that Apple is having trouble keeping up with the demand for the iPod as more and more customers place purchases during this holiday season, they may run out. The information comes from a research note from Kaufman Bros. analyst Shaw Wu. The Amazon.com stock levels seem to confirm the notion as well, since it currently takes up to 5 weeks to get your 8GB second-gen iPod touch. It’ll take 3-5 weeks for the 16GB version.

It looks like the shortages may be model specific and color specific, as some are more popular. Wu concluded that Apple may very well sell 21 million iPods in the holiday quarter.

Firebox now offering Crap Wrap

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2008

Firebox now offering Crap WrapFirebox is known for their oddball gadgets. We’ve covered our share right here on this site. Turns out they’re offering a wrapping paper service along with their gadgets. Crap Wrap features brown parcel tape instead of clear tape, the gift will have uneven edges and paper that was cut very wrong. Just select that type of wrapping paper when you check out and you can send these off to someone special.

The idea is that these gifts won’t look so professionally wrapped. Which will make them think that you actually wrapped it. Because everyone knows you wrap gifts like a grade school kid overdosing on Ritalin, while using the awkward green-handled lefty scissors.

Blockbuster may release set-top box before ChristmasRumor is that Blockbuster could roll out its own set-top box by the time the holidays are fully upon us, which would let users receive Movielink downloads in the comfort of their own living room. There isn’t much info available, but it will be interesting to see whether this rumor pans out or not. Netflix having some competition is probably a good thing, but Blockbuster will have to come up with something really interesting to even compete.

Santa Magic Blowout Ornament

How many times have you wished that you could turn off all of the lights on your Christmas tree just by blowing on an ornament? Surely I’m not the only one. Well, my prayers at least, have been answered. In years past, you had to unplug the extension cord from the wall or flick the switch to off. For some people that’s alot of work.

Enter the Santa Magic Blowout Ornament. Once you have Santa wired into your lighting system, just blow into the ornament to turn off all the tree lights. To turn them on again just push the button on the chimney. I know, it’s one of those gadgets that on one hand is lame, but then again it does make it easier to turn your lights off.
