Nov 14, 2003
Pecan pie, mashed potatoes & roast turkey with a fine Bawls reduction sauce.
Ahhh...the season is upon us. And, just like Mario to King Bowser Koopa, we
shall rise and greet! Unlike Mario however, we cannot do triple jumps and
butt stomps without endangering the integrity of our limbs. So instead
we'll just sit in front of our multi-headed LCD's and type furiously...

New, Fuzzy, Warm, Geeky Blankets To Canoodle In
It's about time we've upgraded to some new blanket designs. The world is
filled with folks like you that get cold and ThinkGeek just wants to warm
you up in style. We can't let you continue on with cold fingers trying to
type by the fireplace on your WiFi laptop. Checkout the new 'Geek' blanket
written in various fonts, in binary and in hex. Also checkout the great
looking new Megatokyo Miho blanket. Both are extremely high-quality,
reversible blankets. Nuzzle up to one right here:
Unique Green-Red Laser Pointer
Many people have a red laser pointer, and some even niftier people have the
green laser variety. But very few people have them both built into a single
unit! So be sure to grab *the first* laser pointer that projects a brilliant
GREEN beam from one end and a high-power RED beam from the other end. The
GREEN beam is just as bright as other green pointers, range up to 2 miles in
darkness, wavelength 532 nm. The green laser beam (not just the dot) is
visible at night. The RED beam is the most powerful red laser allowed by the
FDA, range 4000 ft in darkness. Get illuminated here:
iRiver iHP-120 MP3 Jukebox - OGG Vorbis Support
With stylish looks and a compact form factor, this new MP3 jukebox is sure
to catch your eye. With a whopping 16 hours of battery life, a built-in FM
tuner, 20 gigs of storage, and OGG support to boot, we're guessing these
will show up on more than a few wishlists this year...
LED Light - Waterproof to 350 Atmospheres
The Glo-Toob FX is an extremely solid LED glowlight, with 7 modes of
operation. It is waterproof to extreme depths (about 350 atmospheres) and
runs on a single 12V lighter battery. The light is made from an aluminum
core surrounded by a tough clear epoxy. This light is great for providing
emergency lighting as well as ambient task lighting. Divers, emergency
services personnel, boaters, climbers, hunters and geeks of all kinds will
appreciate the solid construction and reliability of this little light.
New T-shirts That Defy The Laws Of Suck
That's good right? Hopefully. In the meantime, be sure to checkout our three
new t-shirts that are sure to spruce up your wardrobe and drive your friends
crazy with envy. Choose from designs like our new retro themed 'Obey
Gravity, It's The Law Tshirt'. Or maybe the 'Dead Hex Readers' t-shirt is
more your style. Scatterbrained or know somebody that else that is? Grab
our 'Insufficient Memory' tshirt and let people know what to expect. Check
them all out right here:
Desktop Light Doodler - Workplace Procrastination Device #324
The supreme desktop toy, the Desktop Light Doodler consists of a base with
three knobs and a couple of switches on it. Those switches and lights
control a circle, mounted in the center of the base, that has LED's built
into the circumference. Turn it on, manipulate the controls, and you'll be
creating a myriad of colorful and dramatic 3D light effects. Blacklight
responsive base, sound sensitive mode, & freeze control! Check it here:
Trios II Plus - Hard Drive Selector
Why be limited to one hard drive and one operating system? With TRIOS II
Plus, you can expand your computing experience and go beyond the norm.
Easily run multiple O/S's on your PC, whether Linux, Windows XP, or
UNIX. Selecting which O/S to use is as simple as choosing the proper
drive at boot-up! Far more flexible than software based boot managers:
