One of the biggest drawbacks to the iphone is…. you can no longer use it as a hard drive. I used to transfer everything with my ipod. So I have been searching for the perfect USB. I stumbled across this one over at ThinkGeek, the Ironkey.
“…They’ve developed the perfect solution that’s one-part thumb-drive, and two parts Mission: Impossible. Their thumb drives hold up to 4 Gigabytes of data, but includes a hardware encryption chip that scrambles the data so as to be completely unreadable without a password.
Passwords can be hacked, but not the IronKey. It’s built to withstand attacks both virtual and physical. 10 incorrect password attempts, and the encryption chip self-destructs, making the contents of the flash drive totally unreadable. The contents of the drive are filled with epoxy, so if a hacker tries to physically access the chips, he’d more likely damage them instead. Even if he did get access to the memory chips, they’d be worthless without the encryption chip. Electron-shielded, even a scanning electron microscope can’t get inside….”
Now if you can only put your weed in it you would be set. For more info and a longer review check out ThinkGeek. They even have a demo you can watch at Ironkey.
Looking to create a shared harddrive on you local network? I saw this little tidbit on boing boing regarding the problem with Western Digital network drives (no serving any multimedia files), after looking around the good old internet, I found miniStack which claims you can add Drag-and-Drop data storage and sharing to your network. It works on the mac and pc, and the really cool thing is you can just buy the case for 79.99 and put in your own harddrive!

Who needs a watch when the right time is “Now”. Think of how many times you looked down at your watch and respond with “NOW”. “Do you have time for a drink?….right NOW.” “What time is the meeting?…NOW” “When are you leaving…”NOW.” You get the point. The Now Watch makes a great gift for the wife, the boss, and the mother-in-law.
Somehow we missed this one, but it’s a good one. The USB Disk Dock lets you plug in hard drives. You can hook up a dirt-cheap SATA disk drive to your PC or Mac by simply plugging it into this USB desktop adapter that works just like an iPod dock.
Ever wonder what you are going to plug into your cable box’s fireware wire port?

This is definitely not your grandmothers baby grand. Danish audiophile Peter Lyngdorf has teamed up with Steinway, to create “Model D” a sound system as big as a baby grand. Starting at $150.000.00 you to can own the cadillac of sound.
The cooler scooter, a great way to sit down and get around. “Access your drinks while you are driving with the all new quick access door combo drink holder. Simply open up the quick access door, reach in and grab a cold one, then close the door which now converts into your drink holder.” Now my life is complete….. by the way I just watched a show on cnbc and this idea nets in 4 million plus a year.
This is a nice change. Yamaguchi Kogei Changes Strategy for Hacoa Brand Wooden Keyboard. I have to say I want one of these, the only catch is they cost 290.00. Available here. The keyboard kit is set to go on sale in Japan from the end of October, so keep your eyes open for it!

It seems these days ever rap artist/music artist has a clothing line. Now, the new thing is to have a phone. Prada, did it, Zac Posen designed something for Nokia a while back and now Armani whipped up this little gem. The Giorgio Armani-Samsung phone is a mere 10.5 mm in thickness. It will be available in selected mobile phone stores and Giorgio Armani boutiques in major European countries from November 2007, with expansion to other markets planned for 2008.
I predict we will someday be able to have multiple phones then I can decide what looks best with my Prada suit, My samsung Armani, or my Prada cellphone.
You own an iPhone, or at least you know a few people who do, and your are wondering what more do we need? Gelaskins!, That’s right Gelaskins. What’s that you ask? GelaSkins are a very thin (< 2mm) protective cover for your iPhone, made with premium grade 3M vinyl and adhesive technology. Patented micro-channels within the adhesive allow for a bubble-free application. Each GelaSkin has an ultra-clear, scratch resistant coating for maximum durability and photo quality finish. The only problem is trying to find one that does not scream douche. Most of the art is pretty good, it may take some time to fined out what sets you apart from your brethren of iPhone users. Mine says I am a little goth yet appreciate the finer things in life! Such as prolific Dutch painters of the 15th and 16th centuries.
Two things happened this weekend, the MTV VMA’s and the competition for Worlds greatest air guitar player occurred….. and then I realize you really don’t need to sing on stage anymore (brit) and hell people like to look like an idiot pretending to play guitar. and now I think this maybe the next level, drum pants.
According to numbers from iSuppli, Apple’s iPhone outsold all smartphones in the United States in July. This represents its first full month of sales and accounted for 1.8% of all U.S. mobile handsets.
The two models of the iPhone on the market sold more than Research in Motion’s Blackberry series, the entire Palm portfolio and any individual smartphone model from Motorola, Nokia or Samsung.
The data was collected through a consumer survey of 2 million participants in the U.S.
Cellular-news offers some additional statistics from iSuppli’s survey.
- 57% of iPhones bought in July were U.S. consumers 35 years or younger
- 52% Male, 48% Female
- 1/4 of iPhone purchases switched to AT&T from another provider.
Apple had previously stated that they expect to sell one million iPhones by the end of September, with a longer term goal of grabbing 1% of the cell phone market
