I want every single thing in my Father’s Day Gift Guide over at Lifescoop, especially this spot-on iPhone alarm clock dock. Go have a look. Tell your dad I said hi.
We have a drawer at our house with a collection of slightly broken things — a fully functional iPhone with a shattered screen, a point and shoot that sometimes deletes entire memory cards on a whim, etcetera.
Looking in the drawer, it occurs to me that the convenience of throwing gadgets in my bag is perhaps outweighed by the cost of replacing them when they bang into each other and break. But cases offer the best of both worlds — relatively free-floating gadgets that still work when you turn them on. Here are five stylish options to protect your gadgets without adding too much bulk to your bag. Read more…
Three things you should go watch and read:
A quick New Year’s resolution video I did over at Lifescoop. It being January, I hope everyone is prepared for the Internet goal-talk explosion, because I’m obviously planning to engage heavily.
I did a roundup of photography stuff I either own or want: 6 Unique Tools for Better Photos (also at Lifescoop).
Cool Wireless Gadgets over at WePC. I’m surprised at how much I want a charging mat that revitalizes gadgets without all the ugly wires. Locating, untangling, and arranging cords for the various life-enhancing gadgets I own just sounds exhausting. I’m always gobsmacked by people who have everything in a neat little charging station or whatever. Maybe I should stop listing neat little charging stations on my various shopping sites, and instead actually purchase one. It is January after all.
Go read Tech Gifts for Smart Kids over at WePC. All these gadget guides gigs (GGG) are making me want a cooler camera. And a robot helper monkey.
Over at Lifescoop, you can win a $50 Amazon gift card simply by supplying a clever caption for a photo of me licking William Shatner (a warm embrace to Jon Armstrong for his Photoshop skills). This is not a random drawing, it’s an actual contest of wits, which you have in abundance. I encourage you head over and comment because hey, free stuff. Also, is anyone else a little astounded at the favorable odds in these blogging contests? That’s not something you think about a lot, is it. Just me then.
In conclusion, Shatner!
