…It’s Things Thursday: Foof?

Foof

Foofbags and Foofpods are fantastic looking cases, sleeves, covers and pouches for laptops, iPods, iPhones, and other gadgets in need of protection.

Each Foofbag or Foofpod is ethically handmade in Australia, and comes in a variety of fantastic finishes.

The insides are lined with either Sherpa fleece or polished satin, and the included padding keeps your gadgets safe from the bumps and bruises of everyday use.

…It’s Things Thursday: Something?

SomethingStore

Are you the type of person that likes surprises?

Then you’re probably the type of person that would like the SomethingStore, a website that sends you “something, an item selected randomly among many things from our inventory, for $10 (free shipping) and you will find out what your something is when you receive it”.

What could this something be?

    It may be something you need, something you want or something you desire. (Though it also may be total crap.)

    Yours may be a cool gadget, rare book, table game, handmade necklace, reverse clock, box of gourmet chocolates, set of shiny shower curtains, popular video game, big-box retailer gift card, the latest version of a software, a set of kitchen knives, a pair of designer jeans, garden tool, kitchen appliance, unique home decor item, electronic equipment, magazine subscription, office supply item, or…

    Your something will most likely be brand new, though it may also be refurbished or antique.

So SomethingStore can send you anything?

Well, besides “items or services that are illegal to trade in United States”, yes!

Sound good?

Then discover your something is today.

…Apples are great for autos?

Hummer HX iPhone

The iPod/iPhone is quickly becoming an automotive designers go-to gadget for futuristic tech integration.

First, there was the Land Rover LRX concept that started with the push of an iPhone button.

Now, the Hummer HX concept takes video from the front bumper mounted camera and records it directly to a dock mounted iPod.

What will they think of next?

…Sizeasy lets you visualize that new gadget you are about to buy?

Sizeasy

Sizeasy gives you an easy way to visualize any object in comparison to a number of standard, everyday objects. You simply enter the dimensions of your object, select the objects you wish to compare to, and then you can view the comparison using four different angles. The above picture is an example of the results, comparing the new 2G iPod Shuffle to a matchbook and a credit card. This is a great tool for those times when you can’t quite get a grasp on the size of that gadget you’re ogling over, and would like a few visual clues while the cash burns a hole through your pocket.
