Oops! Where's my toolbag?

This is old news (few days?) now, but watching the video just can't be beat. You know, the astronaut who lost the tool bag.

Christmas is coming - Time for music!

Check this out. The Yamaha Disklavier Mark IV v3.0 grand piano. First of all, what's with giving a version number to a piano?!

Well, it's because this piano RUNS LINUX! In fact, it also has Ethernet, WiFi, and USB connections.

Is that crazy, or what? You can record and playback your audio performances on the internal harddrive. You can even play or stream songs through the piano.

What else is crazy about it? The price...$40,000.

Lust rating: are you kidding? this is a musical geek's DREAM!

Cool Kids Christmas Gift - Eyeclops

Alright, it's almost the beginning of shopping season. I'll start it off with a cool Christmas gift for your rugrat, EyeClops Bionic Eye Multizoom. This thing hooks up to your TV or 1080p Up-Converting VHS Combo DVD Recorder to show you what something looks when it's magnified at 200 times.

It's a cool little gadget, and might help your little one finish his or her science project EARLY!

GOG - Bring on the games! (Good Old Games) has been open for public beta for about a month now. Tried it?

I just heard about it, but the concept sounds neat. Membership program that allows you to download non-DRM old school games that work on both Win XP and Vista.

Hmm, I'm love old school Commie 64 games, but now..? Well, I'm too lazy for that scene. It's all about the Xbox 360 for me. I'm sure there are some folks who are excited about this though.

How about you?

Epson's NEW all-in-one printer with WiFi

They're rolling out new printers for the 2009 New Year's Card printing season in Japan. The latest? Epson's EP-901F.

The coolest features are WiFi, Fax (yeah, not so big other than in Asia), and 4800 dpi scanning. The closest Epson has in the U.S. is the Epson Artisan 700 Photo All-in-One Printer (Black) (C11CA30201).

You can download the PDF catalog and get more details. Just make sure you have CJK font files installed for Acrobat.

Lust rating: yeah, this would be cool to have...
