don’t really have any issues downloading pictures from my digital camera to my computer. Mostly because I just pop out the SD card and insert it into the card reader in my PC. It eliminates the need for any resource-hogging software. The same goes for my camera phone, there’s just the extra step of inserting the microSD card adapter. Apparently some people still think this is an issue, which is one of the reasons why this tiny USB digital camera was created.
I’m going to guess that there’s some artistic reasoning behind this creation as well. You’ll notice that this thing is tiny, which gives no room for any kind of viewfinder or LCD display. You’re kind of in the dark as to whether your picture is going to turn out. I guess I don’t really get it, as I want to make sure that my pictures are actually going be worth looking at when I download them.
I’ve also got a beef with their little diagram. They clearly show a card reader that plugs into a USB port, then they show that you need a USB extension cable. Why do they think you’ll need one for that and not your little camera? Because it makes their little camera look better, that’s why. Yes, I am probably reading into it just a little much.

I love these stylish headphones by Phiaton. The Phiaton is hitting the market with two lines of headphones and an iPod mini system – MS600. Their PS200 In-ear earphones is cool and feature a set of ‘memory form’ silicon tips that fit softly and smoothly inside the ear canal; deliver great detail and spacious sound, while background noise just fades away. The MS400 headphones is sleek with the red-black style and features engineered for accurate response. I wish their sould as good as they look.

I have a nasty habit of using my hands instead of a scrap piece of paper for jotting down reminders and to-do lists and while I’ve seen people getting blank to-do list tattoos on their hands and arms before, I don’t think I’ll be following that particular trend anytime soon.
As an alternative here’s a kit that includes 12 temporary to-do list tattoos you can place anywhere on your body. That way if you happen to end up like that guy in Memento with a particularly short-term memory you can at least keep things neat and organized. The kit also includes a skin-safe ink gel pen that easily washes off, but I have no idea how long each temporary tattoo will last.
MacBook Air looks slim and nice but it does not come with things like CD-ROM or floppy disk (they goes externally). Here’s one from Flickr user Nybras.Rodrigo called MacBook Aircraft, it has it all, USB 2.0, Firewire 400, Firewire 800, Ethernet, DVI output, Superdrive, iPod Shuffle and the long long ago floppy drive. Is there still people using floppy disk after the USB drive invented? Oh yes.
You are sitting on desk for years with the laptop. Ever thought of using it while you standing up or walking around. It is designed by Henning Kunow. The Lindo is made of fiberglass, just wrap around your waist and it has two sturdy support that stick out in front of you which you can use for putting your laptop, writing desk or food tray. Unfortunately, Lindo is only a concept prototype.
Gizmodo got some shots of the uncovered MacBook Air. It’s about changing the battery. According to Gizmodo, the MacBook Air battery can be easily changed.

This amounts of money are an impossible for anyone to visualize. Let’s have a look, starting with the one dollar … it’s roughly 6 inches long, and 2½ inches wide. It’s roughly as thick as a regular piece of paper. Now we will continue to make imagine larger and larger pictures, with more and more money, and at the end I’m sure that you will be amazed by these “mountains” of money, millions, billions. So if you are going to earn so much money you’ll need some big deposits if you would like to keep them.
