World's Slimmest Waterproof Cell Phone - Fujitsu

Jan 30, 2007 - Japan

Fujitsu Systems announces the "world's slimmest waterproof" cell phone. Of course, this is available only in Japan.

Question, WHY?? Is your communication so important that you need a cell phone in the bath/shower? I'm sure I'm missing something here.

As usual, regular features such as microSD card input, music player, and camera are also included.

Who says a mouse can't be sexy?

Microsoft just released the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000. The sexy thing about this mouse is that it has a built-in laser pointer, controls for PowerPoint (presentations), and Windows Media Player controls (see next photo).

The only missing feature is a hand warmer! :)

a gadget blogger's rant...

Hmm, I've been thinking...and it seems that in order to get some good content, it's best to PURCHASE gadgets. There are some obstacles of course - gadget availability and cost - being the prime ones.

2007, and I'll have to think of some way to rectify this. any suggestions welcomed. :)

retro gadget

As CES starts to wind down...wanted to cover something that wasn't at CES this year or last. Reason being that the product is a Japan-only (AFAIK) product - Sony Hard-Disk DVD Recorder RDZ-D800.

One of the standout features is that you can program the recorder via cell phone!!! Check out this image. Again, this product along with the feature is Japan-only...but WOW, talk about convenience.

The Japan Market is already lucky to have, like Korea, DMB that is accessible by every gadget imaginable. But there *are* times when you just want to kick back in your sofa and watch your fav TV show with surround sound....

Lust rating = want it! if I were in Japan...
