The Very First Lighter Phone SB6309

Although I fully admit to chuckling quite a bit after first seeing this cellphone with a built-in cigarette lighter, I can see some practicality with it. After all, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard of my smoking friends losing their lighter. I’ve been asked numerous times if I happen to have a lighter on me, despite that they’re fully aware I don’t smoke. Having a lighter built into your cellphone would come in incredibly handy. After all, your phone is almost always somewhere within reach.....

Eraser with built-in brush for eraser bits - absolutely brilliant

How many times do you think you’ve used a pencil eraser and then brushed off the little rubber bits with your pinky? A million times? — a billion? Well, no more! This eraser brush device, while coming about fifty or sixty years too late, will certainly be useful for those of you still using pencils. What’s that? I’m getting reports that no one uses pencils any more, anywhere. That can’t be right.

I kid, I kid. Here in tech world you don’t see a lot of pencils around, but they’re still indispensable in art. Even if as a penciler you end up with stuff like this. I’d say Rob Liefeld could have used a little more eraser in his life.

Anyway, you’ve got yourself a nice professional eraser on one end, and a beautiful head of bristles on the other — what else could you need? It’s even tastefully designed. I want one just to keep in a drawer. Costs 7GBP, or a little over $10, which I think is reasonable.

The Bodum Bistro: Ode To A Beautiful Toaster

We like toast, it's a quick snack or even dinner sometimes. But our love for toast is matched by our hatred for cleaning fingerprints off the side of the toaster. That is, until we saw the new rubber exteriors on these brightly colored versions, from Bodum. Is it wrong to call a toaster sexy?

We like the idea of having well used appliances on the counters, but we also love the idea of adding colors to our spaces with more than just flowers. This 900 watt toaster can take on bread slices and bagels alike with adjustable-width slots. It also boasts a warming rack and heat resistant rubber exterior, so not only does it look good, but it will stay cool to the touch! Plus, it's available in 8 knock out colors.

They're available for $79.95 from Sur La Table and for $79.99 over at Amazon, sometimes with a free cutting board (oooh, ahhh).

Energizer "D" Battery Exposed

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks


Why are Energizer "D" batteries so weak? To find out the answer, I decided to take one apart and see what was inside. As this picture reveals, inside the "D" battery is a much smaller battery! The Energizer "D" battery is actually just a cheap plastic shell surrounding a much smaller, low-capacity battery similar in size and capacity to an "AA" battery (2500 mAh).

This explains why the Energizer "D" rechargeable battery has such low power capacity to begin with. The company doesn't even try to make it a high-capacity "D" battery, it seems. They're filling part of the inside of the battery body with nothing more than cheap plastic and useless air. And how much does Energizer charge for this "D" battery? More than $12 each!

It's true: These inferior "D" batteries cost around $25 for a pack of two. These are known as "Energizer E2 Rechargeable Batteries, Size D," rated at 2500 mAh each. (mAh is a measure of how much power is contained in the battery. It's sort of like the fuel tank in your car. The bigger the number, the more power the battery delivers.)

By comparison, an Energizer AA battery rated at the exact same capacity -- 2500 mAh -- costs about THREE dollars!

So why is a "D" battery priced at 400% more than an AA battery with the exact same capacity? Because Energizer can get away with it, probably. Most consumers have no idea about the mAh numbers. They just look at the physical size of the battery and figure it has more capacity. (Mainstream consumers are remarkably gullible, and few understand any technical specs at all.)

By comparison, check out the Powerex "D" rechargeable batteries at These batteries have more than 300% more power than the Energizer batteries, and they only cost slightly more! ($15 dollars vs. about $12, for triple the power). They're also significantly heavier. And you know why they're heavier? Because they don't contain a bunch of cheap plastic and air gaps inside!

Glow In The Dark Toilet Paper

Glow In The Dark Toilet Paper

The pinnacle of human achievement: glow in the dark toilet paper. Finally, I can sleep at night...knowing that if I have to get up to go to the bathroom, I at least won't sit in the sink again. Or will I? I probably will. It's like a bidet!

Perfect for power cuts, this groovy glowing loo roll means that if you don't want to wake anyone up in your household by turning on the light, it'll cast its green glow over your bathroom, so you can find your way around.
Neat, but each roll will set you back $8 and change. And, as cool as glowing toilet paper is, I can't imagine you'd want something radioactive so close to your privates. I mean, who wants glowing children? Besides everybody! Which is exactly why I just wrapped my penis in a roll. See -- it looks like a mummy!

Qlocktwo clock tells the time with words

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Qlocktwo clock tells the time with words

The QLOCKTWO is a gorgeous modern timepiece uses letters, not numbers to tell you the current time.
Designed by Biegert & Funk, the QLOCKTWO displays text that describes the current time using statements like “IT IS NINE O’CLOCK” or “IT IS FIVE PAST TWO”. Individual minutes are conveyed through the tiny white dots in the corners of the clock. A flip of the switch, and the seconds appear as a giant dot-matrix display behind the letters. And if you’d prefer your time in a language other than English, you’ve got a choice of German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, or French versions too.

The handmade German clock features a painted acrylic or stainless steel face, which tops a sturdy wood box that houses an array of LED backlighting and circuitry required to tell the time. This sophisticated timepiece uses an atomic-synchronized time-signal reciever and automatically adjusts its brightness based on the ambient light around it.

As much as I love the design, the QLOCKTWO isn’t cheap. It retails for €1099.99 (appx. $1565 USD), and interchangeable color faceplates are available starting at €95 (appx. $136 USD) each over at the Biegert & Funk store.

Now for the good news. If you happen to own an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can now grab a nifty little program over on the App Store that simulates the QCLOCKTWO’s functionality on your wonderdevice for just 99 cents. That’s definitely within my budget.

The Screw Key is a key that screws

The Screw Key is a key that screws

The Screw Key is simple enough: a key with a Philips or straight bit on the end. I like it. The construction is solid and there isn’t any colorful plastic parts anywhere that will eventually break. The top of the key is large enough for sausage fingers but not so big that it will become a pain in the pocket. Genius!

I don’t know about the company’s claim that no one has made a similar key ring screwdriver in the last ten years. I sure I’ve seen similar products at lumber yards near the cash register, but whatever, I like this $4.50 solution a lot. I only wish they made a wrench set in 1/2″ and 7/16″ sizes for F-connectors.

Nokia Booklet 3G netbook : 12hr battery, HSPA and GPS

Nokia have announced their own netbook, the Nokia Booklet 3G, promising up to 12 hours battery life together with integrated WiFi, 3G HSPA and GPS. The 1.25kg netbook has an aluminum chassis and measures around 2cm thick; it uses an unspecified Intel Atom processor, has an HDMI output for HD video playback and a 10.1-inch glass HD-ready display.

Other ports include three USB 2.0 connectors and an SD card slot, plus there’s Bluetooth and a front-facing webcam. OS is Windows 7, at least going by the video below, and there’s integration with Nokia’s Ovi services including Maps for Ovi that uses the GPS and A-GPS, music downloads, VPN integration and more. Nokia are also talking about a hot-swappable SIM slot, which suggests you’ll be able to flip between 3G connections without needing to shut off the Booklet.

Nokia are promising the full specifications and pricing for the Booklet 3G at Nokia World next week.

Rename your digital photos automatically in Windows XP

Unless you really have a lot of time on your hands, I doubt you want to go through the massive folder that contains your European vacation photos and rename them Europe_1.jpg, Europe_2.jpg, and so on down the line. If you're running Windows XP on your computer, you don't have to do this. Simply apply this hack to quickly apply a meaningful label to every picture in the folder.

  • First, open the folder and select View > Thumbnails.
  • Click the last picture in the folder you want to rename, hold down the Shift key, and click the first picture; this will select them all.
  • Right-click the first photo, and select Rename from the drop-down menu.
  • Windows XP will highlight the filename for the first photo, enabling you to give it a descriptive name.
  • After you type in the name, click the white space outside of the photo and watch as Windows applies the name with a sequential number to each picture in the folder.
