A T-shirt For The Homotron In You!
Nothing says Homotron like two big robots kissing. And now someone has gone and put it on a t-shirt. I don't know about you, but Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots was a big game for me when I was a kid and whenever no one was around I would secretly make them kiss so this t-shirt is somethng of a dream come true. You can purchase your own for a mere $20 on Threadless!

Review: Vibe Duo Headphones
The Digital Life show in NYC yielded some interesting finds. As I have been doing so much traveling, I was really drawn more towards the smaller items. After I finally tore myself away from the Gelaskins booth, I made my way across the aisle to check out the Vibe Duo earbud headphones from V-Moda. I have been on the market for some new headphones since I lost mine during my jaunt to E for All. The headphones that come packed with the various Apple devices are always incredibly uncomfortable to me. Something akin to sticking trashcan lids in your ears, they never quite fit right and always seem to fall out of my ears.
Needless to say, I was delighted when the lovely gal behind the table handed me a pair to try out, thus solving my headphone dilemma in one swoop. I have always thought thought of all headphones to be fairly similar as far as sound and comfortability with some slight variations. But, five minutes with the Vibe Duo proved that I was wrong.

Incredible Hand Carved Wooden PC Case Mod
File this under truly awesome. Valerie Beetle, a gentlemen from the Ukraine, created this amazing hand carved wooden case mod for his PC. I've seen some pretty cool case mods in my day, but this one really takes the cake. Makes me want to throw my clunky looking piece of expensive gray plastic right out the window.

Gelaskins: For the Customization Freak In You
I admit it, I am a customization whore. I love having my gadgets and accessories match my personality rather than carrying around that same old white iPod everyone else has. I have bought stickers and decals for my various consoles and handhelds in an attempt to find something cool, but I am inevitably disappointed. I either put the thing on wrong and have to remove it, causing the corners to bend up and never stick down again or I try to remove the decal months later and end up spending hours with Goof Off trying to remove the sticky junk left behind.
When Tiny and I attended the Digital Life Holiday showing last week, I was instantly drawn to the Gelaskins booth. Here they were, decals for every laptop and iPod you could imagine with some really amazing designs. Of course, my inner customizer came out and I looked over the table, my eyes filled with longing, secretly hoping that here I may have finally found the answer to my prayers. And I was right.
