For mac users who want to pretty up their machines (and iPods and iPhones…).  I haven’t made the leap yet (why mess with perfection?) but I’ve been daydreaming about this for years.  Come to me, my pretty.

HP Mini 1000

Full disclosure: Unlike every other product on this website, I would never buy the HP Mini 1000 (because it’s not a macbook).  But that doesn’t mean I don’t love the gorgeous Vivienne Tam-designed exterior.  All you PCers should go get this adorable laptop – even though its insides still kinda suck.

Eton Emergency Radio

The Eton is a great tool to have around the house.  It has a rechargeable battery pack for fair weather, and a hand crank generator for emergencies (that powers itself, a cell phone, an internal flashlight and emergency siren).  I’m grateful that we haven’t had to crank it yet.

The world’s first.  Yes, it’s a small screen, but it takes less than the power of a fluorescent bulb to run it, and the picture is clearer than any television you’ve ever seen – so dense you’ll think it’s 3D.

Flip Video

The Flip is a great camera for capturing everything from that priceless blackmail moment in the bar, to your kid’s first steps, and the pocket sized camcorder records up to 60 minutes of VGA-quality video.

Sony Bravia

This 32″ beauty is calling out to me, asking, nay, demanding to be placed in a spot of honor in my bedroom.  (And, no, not only because Peyton Manning’s face is on its screen.)

I used to think I was the only one who couldn’t wear Apple’s earbuds, but then I found a whole community full of misshapen ears out there.  People who love the candy: good sound, great fit (they come with size adjusters), and good price.  I also love the volume control on the wire.

Han Solo Flash Drive

Are there any female Star Wars geeks out there?  Because this guy needs a home.

Only downside?  He doesn’t look quite enough like Harrison. Still, he’s a totally adorable reminder of the real thing.


Nikon D200

A fantastic, versatile camera with the world-famous Nikon name behind it.

($600 off with the 18-135mm lens package.)

A brilliant little feat of technology.  Eric uses it to fool his friends (and enemies); his location is always concealed.  Plus, it looks cute, too.
