The ThinkGeek Newsletter!
October 20, 2004
Welcome to the October edition of the ThinkGeek newsletter. Before we
get started we would like to step onto a flimsy virtual pedestal and say
a few things. Play hard, dress up for Halloween, vote*, and don't stay
in line too long waiting for Halo. It's all hype (plus we are worried
that everybody is going to get a copy before us). Now on to the reveal
of a bunch of new mirth-infested stuff from the folks here at ThinkGeek.
Because you're never too old to dress up and play.
Muahahaha! Get A Free T-Shirt!
Spend $75 At ThinkGeek, & Get Any T-shirt Free
For one week only - spend $75 here at ThinkGeek and we'll throw in a
free t-shirt of your choice. Use the opportunity to get some early
holiday shopping in, or just pick up that gadget you've been eyeballing
for a while.
But ThinkGeek, How Do I redeem? It's simple. Pick out any size, any
style t-shirt on our site and put it into your cart. When you are ready
to check out make sure you have at least $75 worth of other goods in your
shopping cart (not including the t-shirt!). Then enter the following
code during checkout and we'll turn that shirt into a freebie:
Limited to one use per account. Applicable for t-shirts only, no golf
shirts, work shirts, sweatshirts or fleece. Offer expires 10/26/2004.
Halloween is almost here!
Need Some Last Minute Halloween Inspiration?
Halloween is right around the corner and if you are in need of any
hi-tech accessories for that company or school costume party, we've got
you covered. Have a black sheet? Cut a hole in the middle, stick your
head through it, paint your face red, get the Vader Force FX Saber and
you can turn yourself into an 'Instant-Sith(tm)'. Or if you would
rather, just put on some camouflage, get a Green Laser pointer and a
Shotblade, tape the laser to the side of a motorcycle helmet so the beam
faces forward. And there you have it, an 'Instant-Space-Marine(tm)!'.

USB Holiday LED Xmas Tree
What could be more wonderful than to celebrate the holiday season with a
glowing USB Xmas tree? Well, maybe that new G5 you've been eyeballing
might be more exciting and perhaps if you've been very good this year
you might get one. But our USB Xmas tree is certainly a great way to
spread some holiday joy. A 5 inch tall acrylic tree with glowing LEDs
that slowly cycles through 6 different colors. Just plug into any USB
port and enjoy.Works with PC, Mac or any USB standard USB connection.
Komen Microfiber Laptop Tote - By Women For Women
It's not every day that a technology-related product is created just for
women. Not only is this microfiber laptop tote the perfect accessory for
toting your laptop, files and other goodies, but the manufacturer is
donating 10% from the sale of each bag to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer
Foundation. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in case you didn't know, and check out the cool black and pink Komen Laptop Tote bag here:
Infoglobe Phone - Hi-tech Caller ID Display
Caller ID is great, allowing you to screen your calls if you so desire,
which for me, means every time the phone rings. The only problem is who
wants to interrupt their evening Tivo session just to get to the phone
and decide not to answer it? Welp, this groovy 5.8Ghz cordless phone has
a unique Caller ID display which can be read at a distance. The caller
info is projected by some nifty spinning LEDs which makes the info
appear to float- spooky! Finally, you can reach your full couch potato
Griffin PC radioSHARK - Record/Pause Live Radio!
The radioSHARK is a USB device that adds an AM/FM radio to any Mac or PC
but its included software allows it to do much more than that. You can
also program it to record you favorite shows and record them as AAC or
AIFF files. It even features a time-shift capability that allows you to
pause a live broadcast, so that you don't have to miss a minute of a
show that you're not actually recording!
Cuddle Up To A Few New ThinkGeek Original Blankets
'Tis the season for late night fragging sessions and numb feet. Solution?
A ThinkGeek blanket to cuddle up with. Choose from two brand spankin'
new designs. First off is 'deadly ninja'. A blanket so powerful in its
design it will give you extra mana just by wearing it and playing
Evercrack at the same time. Did we mention that everybody loves a Ninja?
Our second blanket is the blunt, universal 42 blanket. Bigger than a
towel and far more omnipotent, the 42 blanket in forest green might just
be the blanket to rule them all. Get warm, cuddled and all-powerful here:
VersaCharger - Versatile USB Power Adapter
Here's a new way to get your USB groove on. The VersaCharger eliminates
the need for multiple USB charger adapters by combining both a car
adapter and a wall adapter into one compact and simple design. Pretty
smooth. You can plug this device into your car cigarette lighter socket
to create a USB power outlet or into any standard wall outlet. So you
can easily get USB power when you happen to be away from your PC. Also,
the Versacharger has adaptive circuitry so it can handle variable input
voltages - like 120V or 240V wall outlets.
Naked Up Top? Cover-up With A New ThinkGeek T-shirt
Unlike hairdos and console-games, a good t-shirt never goes out of
fashion. This month ThinkGeek has five new contributions to high
geek-couture that need exposing. First off is the often practiced but
seldom revealed geek mantra - 'Keep out of direct sunlight'. Directly
following is our new 'binary bit' tee. Get 8 and you and your friends
can represent a single ascii character in unison! And by popular demand
we have 3 new ladies shirts on the shelves, 'Shrodinger's Cat', 'Pi by
Numbers', and the venerable 'Obey Gravity, It's the law' babydolls. Get
SilverRiver Drive Enclosure
Why tie your CD or DVD burner to a single PC? This convenient drive
enclosure from ThermalTake can hold a 5.25" optical drive and allow you
to move it from one PC to the next, while USB 2.0 connectivity ensures
fast data transfers. A silent fan in the back keeps your drive running
cool, and it also emits a nice blue glow thanks to a blue LED. 3.5" hard
drives are also supported using supplied mounting adapters.
Mobile Edge Premium Backpacks - Laptop Friendly
What fun is having a laptop PC if you don't have a convenient way to
take it with you? These backpacks from Mobile Edge feature a specially
lined safety compartment to protect your laptop, while providing ample
space for all the trimmings. They also include a convenient media pocket
to hold your MP3 player so you can listen to your tunes while you're on
the go! Just remember to avoid the graveyard at night...
Logitech io2 Digital Pen - From Pen To Paper To PC
The io2 allows you to take your handwritten documents and import them
quickly and easily as digital files on your PC. The system uses a
specially designed paper with a printed dot pattern, which allows the
pen to optically follow your words as you write them, and then imports
them to your PC. The included software even learns your handwriting to
turn notes into digital text that you can edit and use in any
application, just like text entered with the keyboard!
