That Could Come in Handy!
If you are like me you have many devices that take AA batteries, then you could benefit form this little device. Everything from cameras to controllers to my little flip video camera they all take AA batteries. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could charge your AA batteries with your computer? Well with this little cleaver device you can. You just plug the charger into a powered USB port and you can charge your batteries right there. I have the flip ultra so it still takes 2 AA batteries and you can’t charge it with your computer so this is perfect.

Oh that's gross!
If you are a geek like me you may by use to people picking on you. I corrected a teacher in class in front of everyone and no one let me forget my geek moment. I don’t think I have ever had someone steal my lunch but I have a feeling that these bags would have helped me keep at least my sandwich from the oversized under educated buffoons we like to call bullies. You can find these little bags at thinkofthe.com they also have a couple other interesting products as well so check them out.

For the Paranoid Near you!
I am not one for conspiracy theories but I know some people that believe that the media always covers up what really happened and that the general public doesn’t really know what happened. They also seem to think that everyone is always listening and will never say the words bomb and school in the same sentence. Always this device is for them. It’s a bug sweeper. It will detect radio waves between 50 MHz to 3 GHz. It has a LED bar that will light up as well as a sound to alert you if it finds anything. A great gift for the paranoid loved one.

These are super cool. I have to say that I don’t think you would ever catch me on a beach with a metal detector, but you might see me on the beach with a pair of these. Okay I’ll give you that they look kind of dumb. If they were just regular sandals that had a wireless transmitter you could put that little box in your pocket and no one would know. As it is now it looks as if you are on house arrest or you like to drink and drive. Either way I don’t think anyone will mess with you.

It's Merely a Flesh Wound
Nothing quite says geek like a good ole movie reference. And when you have novelty items from that movie you have entered a whole new level of geekyness. Even though I know this to be true I still love the awesomeness that is Monty Python’s Search for the holy grail. It is a classic and will always find a place among my DVD collection. What better way to celebrate the movie than with the Tim the enchanter headgear? Or maybe you would like a Black knight plushy that was always my favorite part of the movie. Either way people visiting you house will be sure to know that you love Monty Python.

It's all the Classics in your Pocket
I wrote an article the other day about the FCMobile II a hand held device that could play the original NES cartridges in a handheld device. I also wrote about the retro due that allows you to play the NES and SNES games. These are both great machines but I got comments saying its easier to just play games on a emulator. I agree especially if you own something like this.
With the Pocket Retro Game Emulator you can load pretty much every game for the following machines: NES, SNES, GBA, Sega Genesis, or Neo Geo. With 8GB of Storage you can’t go wrong with this device. At 99$ it’s a deal and don’t forget that you can also play movie files, audio files, use the built-in FM radio, view jpg images, Read E-books, do voice recording and more.
