    LapWorks Laptop Desk 2.0 Review

    At first glance, and really, every glance thereafter, the Laptop Desk 2.0 from LapWorks doesn’t appear to be much of anything; basically, it’s two pieces of corrugated plastic attached in the center by a couple hinges.

    Samsung's Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive

    No, this hybrid hard drive isn’t actually sexy (though it is topless) and it is difficult to get excited about hard drives in general. But, since Samsung’s still an underdog in the category, the company’s doing its best to innovate the space instead of just cranking out larger sizes (though it did that, too). The 2.5-inch MH80 notebook hard drives feature 256MB of integrated… Read More

    With flash memory prices dropping faster than Apple stock after a fake iPhone delay (I swear it’s the last time I’ll mention it), manufacturers of USB thumb drives have to do something to convince consumers to buy its drives over a competitor’s.

    Creative Unleashes 2MP Auto-focusing, Plug-N-Play Webcam

    I know it’s pretty difficult to get excited by a Webcam, so I forgive you for not reading this. But, on the off chance you’re actually shopping for one, you should maybe add the Creative Live! Cam Optia AF to your list; it became available today. Creative promises the $130 camera has a “true 2-megapixel sensor and Live! View technology for sharp, HD-resolution video.”… Read More

The tough ABS plastic RhinoSkin used for the case’s body is, though. Plus, there’s cushy neoprene padding inside to prevent scratches and keep the notebook from shifting inside while… Read More

  • G-Tech Messenger Bag Lets You Control Your iPod And Listen To It Too

    I love Eleksen’s ElekTex Smart Fabric and the companies that think up new ways to use it. Case in point, this messenger bag from G-Tech (by GoodHope Bags) that was announced earlier this week. Connect your iPod inside a pocket on the bag and you can use the Smart Fabric buttons on the strap to control your audio. That in and of itself isn’t too groundbreaking, but G-Tech added a… Read More
