Gadget of the Day: Another Innovation, this time... →
An incredible innovation and my excuse for not posting yesterday (Can you say Food COMA!). What the heck am I blogging about? I’ve got one word: TURDUCKEN; a duck inside a turkey inside a chicken and this time it even had Quail! Ok, I know the order is mixed up and it has more to do with cooking than technology, but we as humans are the only species to change what we consume in such creative...
Gadget of the Day: IFESTATION at The Wired Store →
You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video My jokes need some help. But, when you live in an infested city like Manhattan you need to keep a sense of humor about all the creepy crawlers that lurk around. I would love to have the same mice problem that the Wired Store has, as these ‘mice’ are nothing but helpful and stylish. I’m talking about the Kensington Slim Blade...

Gadget of the Day: Is Pleo the Next Gremlin? →
Sure he’s sweet and loves attention. But please kids, proceed with caution as the Pleo can be dangerous if left in the wrong hands. What is the Pleo? It’s by the zany creator of the Furby. Pleo is quite lifelike, and its personality depends on how you treat it. I have heard rumors there is a way to make this little dinosaur bi-polar. Can you imagine being able to program a robot to have...

Gadget of the Day: Mood Lighting ;-) ;-)… →
Move over Bear Skin Rug, there’s a new mood enhancer on the block for those ‘wink, wink, nudge, nudge’ moments. No, I am not talking about illegal drugs, though you may think you are on LSD when first using the new Philips Living Color Lights. It comes with the necessary remote control that lets you change the light when the mood is right.

BootyDialer.com an NYU ITP Show HOMERUN! →
I am really jealous of my friend that recently attended the NYU ITP show. One concept is truly ’special’, in my opinion. Kudos to the students that created BootyDialer.com. It has an incredibly clear thesis covering all the bases with humor and necessity. I encourage everyone reading this to check it out!
Gadget of the Day: “Tut tut, it looks like rain!” →
Being a native Californian, I am not used to the unpredictable weather that Manhattan brings my way. The Manhattan Umbrella Vendors make a fortune off of saps like me every time it rains. For this simple reason, I have decided to invest in an Ambient Forecasting Umbrella. It has wireless built in receiver that connects to Accuweather.com and notifies the user when there is a chance of...
Gadget of the Day: →
If you are looking for a reasonably priced nice looking high definition television, look no further than Olevia. The color and image quality are comparable to televisions in a much higher price range. Months ago, I was looking at BRLC and judging the stock based on Olevia and it’s potential in the marketplace. Unfortunately, Syntax-Brillian has performed poorly compared to the beautiful...
Gadget of the Day: →
I whine for wine! Ok, maybe not really whine, but I did soothe my ’Birthday Blues’ with a nice glass yesterday. Therefore, my gadget today is for all the wine-o’s that want to blend their own grapes, I bring you the Winepod.
Gadget of the Day: Robot SexyTime! →
You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video Kumotek KT-X allows you to program the robot and provides hours of entertainment with 75 pre-programed options. As you can tell from the video, I was fixated on it’s ‘Sexy Time’ moves.

Gadget of the Day: Nothing like Vudu on a Cold... →
It’s Friday night and all I want to do is watch a good movie. For some reason, I can never find a great selection from ‘Movies on Demand’ or at my local video store. That is where Vudu comes in to save the day. For the first time, Vudu gives you access to 5,000 HD movies instantaneously, that is like having three whole video stores all accessible in one stylish little black box.
Gadget of the Day: Shower Floss? →
How does flossing in the shower sound? NASTY? I agree, but the showerpick could promote flossing among those whose gums are in desperate need of some TLC. As I understand, the showerpick attaches to your regular showerhead and creates a water pick that could rival the same results as regular flossing. My apologies to those who are dying to see a video of me flossing in the shower, the day I do...
Gadget of the Day: Twisted Picture →
Gadget of the Day: Eye Spy WiFi with an Eye Fi :-) →
Ey Fi has done it and I am ecstatic (really hard to maintain cubical collectiveness when you find such an innovation). Finally, my two favorite technologies (digital camera and WiFi) are now combines as one. For $100 you can purchase this revolutionary 2G SD Card with built in WiFi that also allows you to upload your photos online without a cable. This mean faster better quality pictures to post...

I know it’s winter, but a girl can dream- right?
Gadget of the Day: I NEED A HELMET! →
Today, I went snowboarding in Vermont and ‘bit the dust (snow)’ pretty hard. The wind was knocked out of me and I saw stars (I’m not talking about Angelina Jolie). Can you imagine how bad my posts would be if I really got a concussion? SCARY! So, my gadget of the day is basically made to protect my cranium upon impact of a fall when you’re snowboarding. It’s called the ribcap and though I have...
Apple Store Opening in the Meatpacking District... →
Apple stock is going to $1,000. OK, that may be a huge overstatement, but judging from last night’s opening of the new Apple Store on 14th Street and 9th Avenue, Mr. Jobs has more fans than ‘New Kids The Block’. 5,000+ people lined the streets of the Meatpacking District in 30-degree weather, waiting to see yet another Apple home runs. The line wrapped around a whole Avenue with police monitoring...
Gadget of the Day: Naughty Doggie? →
Last night I found the perfect gift for my brother, a dog humping USB port plug-in. Put them on either side of your computer and watch them go. Yes, this is a bit grotesque, but it’s better to see a pooch going at it on your USB port than on your leg! Thank goodness my parents no longer read my posts, the quality (if there was any prior to this is decreasing a at a rapid pace). Video to come as...
Gadget of the Day: →
The iTheater can best be described as a traveling entertainment center. You can view video and games in 230,000 pixels and surround sound, all for the price of designer sunglasses. Warning: do be like me and walk around with these glasses, I thought they were so cool that I tried to wear them in the streets of New York. Yeah, not the best idea when your a pedestrian that’s easily distracted.
Gadget of the Day: Chasing the alarm clock in your... →
I hate waking up on cold winter mornings (especially when I have to be chained to a cubical for 10+ hours). Usually, I hit the snooze button on my alarm about six times and start my day off on the wrong foot (AHH!). What if you had an alarm that hid in different spots, so it forced you to get out of bed? Look no further, the handy dandy Nanda Clocky is here to get you up at the crack of...
Gadget of the Day: No, it’s not ‘The Kindle’ →
One of the items I viewed at the Wired Store was the staff showing off their talents, along with their favorite gadgets. In this video they use the Lenova Thinkpad x-61 Tablet. Usually tablet pens are not as comfortable to use as ink pens, but as seen in the video my friend has no trouble drawing intricate caricatures of his fellow employees. The upgraded version of the x-60 includes a better...
Gadget of the Day: Gettin’ Some Action on the Cam →
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ve5OrzcQs0 In a pathetic attempt to justify why I would like a helmet with a camera, I found the Oregon Scientific ATC2K Waterproof Action Cam. I thought it purely was used for protecting my cranium and recording the happenings on a wild night of partying. Fortunately, there are more realistic uses like taking it on all the extreme sporting trips you can imagine....

A Gadget a Day Keeps the Doctors Away! →
Ok, my title literally makes no sense. But, gadgets make me happier than apples (so that is my crazy justification for the title of this post). To chase my holiday blues away, I have decided to refocus my energies on things that excite me (i.e. gadgets). Each day, till 2008 I will cover a gadget or tech accessory that gets my mind off of the cold NYC days away from my warm Cali family. I am not...
GEEK’S WETDREAM FOR THE HOLIDAYS! →
Last night I checked out the Wired Store in Soho (60 Greene Street) and upon entering had a complete conniption. First of all, the design is stellar; it’s a huge space that mixes the charm of an old New York Soho loft with bright pink walls and modern style. But, more importantly you can ‘Geek Out’ on gadgets that range from Robots to Underwater Helmets. I played a jamming’ game of ‘Rock...
