Apple’s shiny silver box received its annual upgrade. Sorry if you just returned home with your freshly out-dated MacBook. We won’t bore you with all the specs. Highlights include an optional speedy quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor, and spiffy new technology, ‘Thunderbolt’, which opens up a whole new world of super-fast plug-&-play performance for your peripherals. Apple even beefed-up the HD camera. Upgrade time.
How many hours per day are you glued to your computer? Honestly, all your clicking and typing are bound to cause some fatigue and soreness in your hands and wrists. This can lead to repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel and tendinitis. This ergonomic keyboard was designed with input from doctors and it actually moves slightly as you work to keep your hands from staying stuck in the same position.
Are you a plug-in-every-port type of guy? Well, here’s an easy way to get more USB action out of your desktop. This little doinklet holds your monitor up top, fits your keyboard underneath and features six USB ports for you to plug your whole life into. There’s even a mini-USB port and an AC adapter port for charging the camera battery. Clean up your desk & power up your digitalia. Easy like.
In some ways we’re pretty dumb, aren’t we? Like, we only get extra keys made after paying the locksmith 500 bucks to get us into our car. We vow to back our computers up only after losing the family photo archive. Maybe now would be a good time to think ahead. Just take a baby step. Get one of these shitstorm-proof cases from LaCie to hold your 2.5” hard drives, digital cameras, or any other small, valuable electronic-type gear you don’t want to replace. Do some damage control.
Okay, so maybe you’re getting a little old for toys, but with this one you’ve got a great excuse. It’s a hard drive. This 1:18 scale model Delorean from the movie Back To The Future actually contains a 500GB hard drive – that’s some decent storage space. When you’re sure nobody is around, unplug the 6-foot USB cable and roll it around on your desk. Just don’t get caught, people are already suspicious of you.
Small stuff is cool. Like miniature horses and bonsai trees. Like Smart cars. Sometimes little stuff just makes more sense. This computer is a great example. It’s a cube, four-inches on a side, packing the power of a legit PC. But, what makes it really sweet is it’s modular – designed to link with other cubes for building ever-expanding, easily upgradable systems. Its components are universal, energy efficient & designed to last five-times longer than the average computer.
A pocket-sized, 500GB USB 3.0 portable hard-drive is in itself, a pretty rad little storehouse. Add to that power, the smooth & functionally sculpted form by famed industrial designer, Philippe Starck, and you’ve got yourself a damn fine device. Its all-aluminum case makes it even cooler. Literally. Even at ten-times the speed of regular USB, it won’t heat up.
Typing already takes enough energy. How about Logitech’s keyboard powered by good old-fashioned daylight? It even runs off those rotten fluorescents lighting up your cubicle. It’s slim, lightweight & obviously better for the environment by removing one more energy-sucking device from the power grid. On top of that, the keyboard is PVC-free and comes packaged in a 100% recycled box. Thumbs up for that.
When it comes to game-changing technology, you want to be on-board early. Like … first. So, get wise to the super-power of Iomega’s revolutionary, next-generation SSD Flash storage. These pocket-size USB 3.0 devices are sturdy, need no external power source, and deliver file transfer speeds of up to 5-Gigs per second. Yes, you read that right. 5 Gigs. Per second.
Even in 2010 you still need a paper printout for some things. So, it’s cool to find a printer that actually looks like it belongs in this decade. Sleek, wireless & artfully designed, it prints photo-quality images from your memory card and from the web with no PC needed. A high-res touch screen menu takes you through all of the amazing features of this very modern and eco-minded unit.
