The ThinkGeek Newsletter!
November 19, 2004
Where the heck did this year go? How can it be November already and
we're talking of turkey, Half-Life 2, and both Internets? Time does
indeed fly. Well, now that we're here we thought we might as well show
you all some really good stuff to give and receive this holiday season.
Try not to be overwhelmed - it's a biggie. Sit down with a Bawls, kick
up your feet, and read on...
A Space Aged Habitat For Antkind
Most sane folks realize that ants are poised to become the most dominant
creatures on planet earth. With 10,000+ species on board now and a
tenaciously aggressive demeanor they are a formidable force of nature
indeed. Consider their complex social and communication behaviors and
you may very well come to the same conclusion ThinkGeek has. The day
ants develop a frontal lobe is going to be a bad day for everybody.
Start observing them now! Before they invade! And do so using Antworks -
an enclosed habitat of NASA designed aqua-gel that the ants breathe, eat,
and tunnel through. Simply amazing...
Antworks makes a great holiday gift! Check it out here:
USB Glowing Snowman
A snowman that won't melt!
He may lack the corncob pipe and a button nose, and two eyes made out of
coal, but he easily compensates by having a USB connection and 4 color
LEDs. This jolly little fellow complete with hat and scarf will
definitely add some winter joy to your desk. And since he's made from
clear plastic and not compacted snow, there is no need to worry about
melted snow dripping down into your power supply and wreaking major
havoc. Works with PC, Mac or any USB standard USB connection. Just
plug into any USB port and enjoy. Thumpety thump, thump...
A great desktop addition, sure to put you in a happy mood:

T-Shirts For You To Be Liking And Stuff
In today's blurb, we have 3 shirts to thrill and delight you. "1up
Mushroom" should bring back memories of a certain game which all gamers
should remember from years past. Speaking of gamers, our "Guns don't
kill people. Kids who play videogames kill people." t-shirt should
put things in perspective for you. Oh, and one last shirt: "Han Shot
First". Apparently some guy named Han Liebowitz shot somebody in a bar,
or that's what we hear. Aaaaak! Cover that naked bod here:
LineX USB FM Transmitter
Here's a simple way to enjoy PC audio through your home stereo. The
LineX FM transmitter appears as a pair of USB-connected speakers to your
PC, but instead it acts to broadcast your PC's audio over one of seven
user-selectable FM frequencies. Power is provided by the USB port, so
there are no power cables or batteries needed!
Fossil Dick Tracy Wrist Net Watch
The comic strip detective Dick Tracy always had his trusty two-way wrist
radio to help him fight a parade of bizarre criminals. Now from Fossil
comes a Dick Tracy style smart watch. So, what's the deal - what makes
this a smart watch? Well, with content delivered from MSN Direct you get
up-to-date weather and financial reports, sports scores, personal messages
and a handy automatic time-zone adjustment, all in a handsome time-piece.
It has a changeable watch face and Atomic clock auto-syncing for accurate
Workstation Repair Tool Kit
Humans make extensive use of tools, from the basic hammer and lever to
advanced tools for detection and assembly. Oh yeah, and having a thumb
comes in kind of handy (pardon the pun). Since we believe geeks to be
somewhat adept at using basic hand tools, we offer a set of tools
designed for PC repair work. More than 32 pieces in this set including
pliers, screwdrivers and a mini combination wrench set. Remember that
right is tight and left is loose - whatever that means.
2005 Classic Computers Of The Past Calendar
Some folks get excited by calendars of hot cars and fast women. Others
enjoy calendars filled with puffy little cats toying with yarn. It seems
that wherever there is a hobby or a fetish there is a calendar. We
suppose it's the capitalist way. Which brings us to the 2005 Classic
Computers of the Past calendar. A calendar that takes pride in showcasing
the chunky retro lines and profiles of some of the most important
computers in the history of humankind.

Blogs, Spam And File Sharing Oh My
Three subjects that ten years ago would connote Monsters, food rationing,
and office camaraderie. Not so these days! Check out some of the latest
books appearing on the ThinkGeek virtual shelves. The Spam Letters
follows the humorous correspondence between Spammers and the venerable
Jonathan Land. Steal This File Sharing book is a great resource for any
folks who want to learn more about P2P networking. And finally the title

informs you of song title, artist name, lyrics and more. The Ultra MP3
player is expandable using either MMC or SD cards, allowing you to
easily add more storage capacity, or swap out entire playlists of tunes.

Fully Licensed Desktop .45 Scale Star Wars Lighsabers
Work at a desk? Have a boss? If you answered yes to either of these
questions, consider getting yourself a fine mini Star Wars Lightsaber.
Keep it on its included stand right next to your mouse. And whenever
you are feeling uptight about work, just grab it and pretend your boss,
a Hutt, is standing in front of you and you are a mighty Jedi. Get lost
in the moment, get up from your chair, make whooshing noises and do spin
attacks and make a general fool of yourself. Then let a friend 'leak'
a video of you lost in the moment on the net and see where that takes you.
Available in Vader, Luke, Obi & Maul versions:

This handheld media device features a 2.5" TFT display for playback of

memory is easily expanded via SD memory cards, so you can update the

built-in voice recorder allowing you to take mental notes on the fly.
USB Optical Liquid Mouse - Santa Claus
Papa Noel, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle or Jolly Old Saint Nick -
whatever you like to call Santa Claus you can have him floating around
on your desk in a liquid-filled optical mouse. The sleigh and reindeer
are missing but, hey, that would be an awful lot to cram into a mouse
don't you think? This is a 2-button mouse with scroll wheel and USB
connection. Optionally available with a floating Duck or little Fish.
A Couple Last Minute Shirts To Throw In Your Hampers
Be sure to check out our 'Geek Inside' and 'Viva La Relativity' shirts.

homage to Albert E. and the scientific revolutions we are still
experiencing thanks to his mad genius. Put some fresh threads on
