Red Maloo Laptop Sleeves.

I adore these stylish and functional industrial grade wool felt Red Maloo laptop sleeves. Stylish because, well, just look at them. And functional because they not only act as Protector of Your Baby, but also as a mousepad when you unfold the sleeve. We can all thank designers Katja Hettler and Jula Tüllmann for their genius handmade idea. Currently they’re available in blue, grey, khaki, lime, magenta, orange, red and pink.


Meet the Newest Member of the Family.

This past Sunday I braved the mall and about fifty people in the Apple Store to buy one of the new iPod Classsics. My other iPod (which is about to be sold on eBay – any takers??) is about four years old and only 10GB. I think I paid the same price for it as I did for my new 80GB. Damn technological advancements and their econmical repercussions. Anyway, the Classic has a beautiful wide screen and the same technology as the iPhone that allows you to flip through your music library by album cover. The one strange thing – the “white” is actually silver.


iPhone Mania.

I’m almost positive that I’m the only person in a Mac-conscious world who doesn’t want the iPhone. I have an iPod, so that job’s taken. I also have a digital camera as well as a camera phone. Lead rold and understudy. Taken. I have a Powerbook and a G4 desktop. Once again, well prepared. So why in the world would I need an iPhone???

Because it’s cool as hell, that’s why. I could have withstood all the hype had I not seen one for the first time in person today in my boss’s office and had a chance to play around with it. I am amazed to say the least. To start, it’s much smaller and thinner than I imagined (especially after seeing ads by Mac that used a particularly large hand model). It’s lighter. It’s easier to use. They really weren’t kidding.

So now I totally want one, but sure don’t have the $500 to drop on it since I’m saving for a down payment on a house. Maybe I’ll just have to wait for version 2.0 to come out…and then stand in line for five hours to get it.
